On today’s episode, we welcome Christan Hiscock to our show! Christan is a life-long entrepreneur and author that joins us to talk to the entrepreneurs out there on finding fulfillment in their work. Too many times people create business models because they think they have to, rather than asking themselves the important question 'Is the work that I am doing really fulfilling?'. This is the core of Christan’s message and how he helps entrepreneurs recreate success in their business and life.

Christan will share with us the questions you should be asking yourself from day 1 of creating your business. We talk further on how to recognize if you are or are not fulfilled with your business. Then he shares his story about how he partnered with his very first client at an income level so much higher than the industry standard.

“Success is meaningless without fulfillment.” Christan Hiscock

Ep.206 ~ High School Dropout to Building Multiple 6-Figure Businesses ~ Derek Pankaew

April 11, 2017

“I think I probably would make more money if I would have just picked Amazon and just learned everything about Amazon, and then just rinsed and repeated. But, I think I would be really bored.” Derek Pankaew

On today’s show, we have a really interesting story. Most entrepreneurs see entrepreneurship as a sense of freedom. In fact, freedom is one of their highest values. The idea to build something that is yours, make your own decisions and be independent of a boss. Today we chat with Derek Pankaew. Derek is a serial entrepreneur in the truest sense of the word. He has built multiple businesses from different countries around the world, one of his most recent selling t-shirts using only Facebook Ads and selling $600,000 in only 9-months.

But guess what Derek is doing now? He’s got a job! No, not because he went broke, but because he wanted to. You see, Derek has a vision to build numerous multi-million dollar companies in his life. He really wanted to learn how to build a $100 million business. So he found a successful startup, moved to New York and landed a job to learn exactly how things are ran.

It’s a great show and one that opened my eyes as a path for the typical entrepreneur.

“Approach it (Facebook Ads) with the mindset that most of what you are going to do isn’t going to work, and be okay with that.” Derek Pankaew

Ep.202 ~ The Mid 7-Figure Mentality and Manufacturing in China ~ Peter Keller

April 6, 2017

“The strength of a founder can become the weakness of a company.” Peter Keller

On today’s show, we are joined by the eCommerce expert and founder of Fringe Sport, Peter Keller. Peter has been engulfed in eCommerce for the past seventeen years. He launched Fringe Sport back in 2010 and has grown it into a mid-seven figure business. This episode was exciting because Peter and I chat about something that I find very interesting, manufacturing and production overseas. Peter has spent a lot of time working with factories in Asia. He shares with us how to find factories that would be great partners, produce excellent products, and also how to spot those factories that treat their employees well. Towards the end of the podcast, Peter shares the difference between the 5, 6, 7 and Mid-7 figure mentalities. It is an excellent podcast with a brilliant business mind and one I highly recommend.

The Goldie Locks Principle

“You don’t want a factory that is way too small, you don’t want a factory that is way to big, you want a factory that is just right.” Peter Keller

03:06: Peter’s Story

04:54: eCommerce In the Early Days

16:29: How Peter Stayed Afloat When No Income Was Coming In

18:02: Growing a Team Then Scaling the Team Back

19:07: Becoming More Aware as a Leader

20:39: How Well do You Understand Your Own Business Processes?

24:16: Finding the Right Manufacturer in China

31:16: Finding an Ethical Manufacturer in China

39:36: 5-Figure vs. 6- Figure vs. 7-Figure vs. Mid 7-Figure Mentality

5 and 6-Figure's were the side hustle mentality 7-Figure's you really have to start thinking about how to leverage yourself and teaching your employees to do what you do Mid 7-Figure's the mindset becomes much more about leading and managing people “If you get poor quality products, it is your fault for not vetting the factory appropriately, for not communicating with the factory properly.” Peter Keller

“The key to anyones success is, honestly reflecting on and understanding where your weaknesses are.” Idahosa Ness

On today’s episode we are joined by the musician, artist, creative genius and founder of The Mimic Method, Idahosa Ness. The Mimic Method is a system of learning a foreign language that uses sounds and accent before learning the words of a language. Idahosa came up with this concept while practicing music in Brazil. This is the way children learn to speak, and learn rapidly, why couldn’t adults do it too?

Fast forward to today, and The Mimic Method has helped thousands of students grow their language skills. Idahosa chats with us today about the ups and downs of growing this business, his own personal struggles of team building and we also chat about life/business philosophy.
