Ep.503 ~ Applying FBI Expert Negotiation Skills in Business ~ Brandon Voss

May 5, 2021

 

 

How does the FBI, CIA and Special Ops teams negotiate with kidnappers, international terrorists and the most dangerous people on the planet? Are there secret strategies to negotiate that give you a superpower for getting anything that you want? What if you just learned a few key tips on negotiating to save a couple thousand dollars on the price of your next car? 

Well the truth is, there are tips and strategies we can use to learn how to be better negotiators, they are easy to learn, and it doesn’t take months of training to pick up. In fact, everything in life is a negotiation. You negotiate with people you live with, your family, and friends, strangers, and you even negotiate with yourself on a daily basis. Quite often, they are simple things like what you’re going to eat for dinner, other times they are more important things, like what school to send your kids to. Good negotiation is really about good communication, and learning to the back and forth of communication well. It is not about manipulation, but about empathic communication, and understanding others points of view. 

Today, we have one of the top authorities on negotiation on our podcast, and I am really excited to have him on the show! His name is Brandon Voss, and he is the President of The Black Swan Group. The Black Swan Group is a strategic business advisory firm that focuses on business negotiation. Their negotiation structure stems from Brandon’s father Chris Voss who was the FBI’s lead international kidnapping negotiator for 20 years. They use hostage negotiation skills to solve business negotiation problems, and it works like a charm.  It is a process that recalibrates communication efforts in order to close better deals and create long lasting relationships. 

Brandon is Black Swan’s thought leader with respect to the three main negotiator types: The Analyst, the Assertive and the Accommodator. Knowing these three types can change your results massively when closing deals. It gives you an edge over others when sitting at the negotiating table. Throughout the show, we are going to discuss Brandon’s strategies, how to use them to make more money, find out how to mitigate conflict with confidence, become a better communicator, and create better relationships in our own lives. Last, but certainly not least, we will talk about the little known ‘Black Swan’ effect that is essential to understand when negotiating any deal in your life.

Ep.502 ~ Using the Uber Model For Other Industries ~ Bryan Clayton, founder of GreenPal

April 28, 2021

~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~ 

 

Bryan Clayton is CEO and cofounder of GreenPal an online marketplace that connects homeowners with local lawn care professionals. Just a few episodes ago we had the man that made the 80/20 Principle famous Richard Koch on the show Episode 496. Richard talked in depth about true ‘Network Businesses’ like Uber that is nothing but an app that connects people that provide a service, and people that need a service. Richard mentioned that in today’s world one would be crazy for not building, starting, investing and working in or with a ‘Network Business.’ And I agree! Network Businesses are making life more convenient one additional app at a time. 

 

Bryan, our guest today has created GreenPal a true ‘Network Business’ for the lawn care industry connecting those people that need lawn care work to those lawn care professionals that want to come and take care of someone's lawn. GreenPal has been called the “Uber for lawn care” by Entrepreneur magazine and has over 200,000 active users completing thousands of transactions per day.

 

Before starting GreenPal, Bryan founded Peachtree Inc. one of the largest landscaping companies in the state of Tennessee growing it to over $10 million a year in annual revenue before it was acquired by Lusa holdings in 2013.

Ep.501 ~ How to Get People to Sell Your Product ~ Hanieh Sigari

April 21, 2021

 

She saw over 600% year-to-year growth with a healthcare startup, while at the same time in an eCommerce business her company drove revenue from $0 to over $20 million in just 5 years. With that success, shockingly enough came the hollow feeling of unfulfillment. This is what actually happens to many entrepreneurs when they feel that the path of success they are following isn’t quite in alignment with their grander purpose in life. It is a pivotal moment when people start to really question themselves, and also a moment when they quite often create their most impactful businesses.

Our guest today is Hanieh Sigari, and she is the founder of Qyral is a skincare company that provides individualized, and science-based products while offering an opportunity for people to become co-partners and entrepreneurs with the company at the same time. Qyral is a pathway for women to change their health, incomes and lives. Hanieh founded this company after realizing she wanted to really make a different type of difference in the world. She was inspired as a young woman by her mother whose efforts lifted hundreds of wartime widows out of poverty.

On top of being a successful entrepreneur that built an 8-figure company, Hanieh is also a biochemist, and striving to make a big difference in the anti-aging industry. Qyral, is the culmination of a lifelong mission to improve the lives and health of others.

It is a genius idea and today on the show we have the founder of Lucid, Patrick Comer. 

 

If you guys remember recently we interviewed Richard Koch the author of The 8020 Principle, and he talks about Uber as a network business.  Airbnb is also a network business.

It has proven to be an incredibly lucrative and very successful business model in today's online driven world.

Ep.496 ~ The Man That Changed How We Do Business Today ~ Richard Koch, author of ‘The 80/20 Principle’

March 17, 2021

~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~ 

 

Thirteen years ago, I came across a book that I had no idea would change my life as much as it has. That book was called The 80/20 Principle. I read it, and immediately applied what it said to my life seeing results in a matter of a few days. I continued to apply the method as much as possible throughout the years using it in both my business and personal life. Little did I know 13 years later, I would be so fortunate enough to interview the author of the book. Richard Koch is our guest today and we are going to dive down the 80/20 rabbit hole with him on what this method is, and why it actually works in all areas of life. How you can use it as a superpower to generate significant amounts of money, and be happier, healthier, and maintain better relationships. 

 

Richard himself is a very successful entrepreneur, investor, & consultant working on and investing in hotels, restaurants, the distilling industry and the internet gaming industry as well. Richard has used the 80/20 Principle to make a fortune from several private equity investments and “retiring’ by the age of 40!

Errol Doebler ~ Founder of Leader 193

~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~

 

Do you ever wonder how the top elite performers of the world operate on a day-to-day basis? How Special Ops, Navy SEALS, & special agents think and act?  I do, that is one of the reasons I started this podcast almost six years ago. I wanted to get behind the minds of the most interesting people in the world, so I could live a better life myself, and I could share that knowledge with others. 

 

We have a treat on today’s show. Our guest is one of the world’s elite performers. His name is Error Doebler and he has 20 years of combined experience as a Navy SEAL and a FBI Special Agent. He served as Assistant Platoon Commander at SEAL Team FOUR, and a Platoon Commander at Seal Team ONE. After his time with the Navy, Errol joined the FBI where he investigated international terrorist organizations, and also served as a member of the FBI’s New York SWAT Team. Errol was then attached to the US Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment while serving as a Special Agent for the FBI, he was later deployed to Afghanistan in 2010 with that Ranger Regiment. Errol participated in extensive combat operations and was presented with the FBI’s second highest award for valor, the Shield of Bravery, for his actions on the battlefield.

 

Errol left the FBI after 13 years of service to begin his leadership consulting firm, Leader 193, working with Fortune 100 companies, professional sports organizations, tech startups, and executives from around the world. He is the author of The Process, Art, & Science of Leadership. He has created a leadership process and funnel that we are going to talk about today, along we will discuss his background, his mindset, & his operation mode.

Ep.493 ~ Dissecting the Art of Impossible w/ Steven Kotler

February 24, 2021

Steven Kotler ~ Author of The Art of Impossible

~ High-Performance Entrepreneurship ~

 

I am going to start this podcast introduction from some passages at the end of a book our guest today has recently written. “What impossible challenges would you tackle if you knew you could be 500% more productive? If you could be 600% more creative? If you could cut your learning times in half?If you could increase your confidence massively, and also spike the pattern recognition significantly in your brain.

I know it sounds like the drug that everyone has dreamed about for centuries to make people feel limitless, and superhuman. But it is not a drug. It is a biological process that nature has embedded into each and every one of us, and we don’t need to be a professional athlete or naturally talented to access it. 

What is it and how does one access it? We are going to talk about that in today's podcast  because the author has written a book that dissects how one can reach this state to achieve what humans think is impossible for themselves. The book is called The Art of Impossible. The author and today’s guest is Steven Kotler.

Steven is a NYTimes Bestselling Author of numerous books including The Rise of Superman, Bold, Abundance, and my favorite read of 2018 Stealing Fire. He is the founder of Flow-State Collective and is an expert in the field of peak-performance, and achieving the impossible because he has studied individuals who have done this numerous times. Some of those people are well known top-athletes, SpecialOps members, NavySEALS, and some of the world’s top entrepreneurs and innovators. He himself has also been a guinea pig to his own madness, and practices on a regular basis what he preaches.

This is Steven's second time on the podcast, and we are going to get behind the man that has studied for years the art of achieving the impossible, why he wrote this book, and how we can apply this methodology to achieve the impossible in our own lives.

February 10, 2021

Steve Sims ~ CEO of Luxury Concierge Service Bluefish

~ Current Series ~

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

The guy that can make anything happen! Now, that may sound like a cheesy one liner that some over promotional marketing guru might say to get on Fox Business News. But there are legitimate people out there who are working behind the scenes keeping a low profile connecting the world's wealthiest, most successful, and famous people with experiences, and connections that they need on a professional basis, and we have got one of those guys here on the podcast today. 

 

His name is Steve Sims and he is a real life underground connector running a company called Bluefish. For years, Steve has been helping some of the world’s elite do things like have dinner at the foot of Michelangelo’s David statue in Florence while Andrea Bochelli sings to them, scuba down to the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean, watch Formula 1 racing in Monaco with Royalty, experience the Olympic Bobsled Run, and the list goes on and on and on.

 

He is the official concierge for the Grammys, he has worked personally with Sir Elton John, and Elon Musk, spoken at both Harvard and the Pentagon twice. He has been labeled by Forbes and Entrepreneur Magazine as “The Real Life Wizard of Oz”!  He has published a best-selling book, “Bluefishing - The Art of Making Things Happen”, documenting how he built a business on social currency. Steve’s blackbook could arguably be one of the most valuable contact lists in the world. 

 

Steve Sims is on the show today so let’s rock and roll!

100 Interviews with 100 Major Influencers

 

 

Have you ever met someone that seems like they have cracked a secret code to make impossible things possible?  Someone that seems like they have a secret superpower to achieve really cool things?

Today’s guest is Cody Lowry and he is one of those guys. Cody set up a meeting with the President of the United States in one week. He carried the Olympic Torch in the Torch Relay. Cody got an audition on Saturday Night Live in 48 hours, got the Pope to sign a baseball, and was given a Superbowl Ring from a Hall of Fame Super Bowl Coach. He is one of those guys that makes the impossible possible. 

Cody Lowry’s story is an upbeat and hilarious one. But it wasn’t always that way. He grew up with poverty, abandonment, and a family that moved thirty-two times within a seven-year period. Yet today, he’s a champion of positivity with advice for everyone on how to make each day count. 

 Cody has been a successful marketer for thirty years, building a multi-million dollar ad agency from scratch. How did he overcome his past to achieve such success? He took on life with a unique perspective, executing bold ideas, making others laugh, and being ever mindful of the little guy.

His advice will delight and inspire you. You’ll hear about his travels, and his ups and downs throughout life. Cody Lowry is a man who’s lived a lot of life and walked the walk, as they say. Now, he’s here to show you the steps to take towards a better life for yourself.
