I recently met today’s guest on an island in Croatia at the most impressive business conference I had ever been to. It was called Baby Bathwater Institute and on the island were many of the world's top entrepreneurs/inventors/investors and thought leaders. A few of them include Jamie Wheal the co-founder of Flow Genome Project and author of Stealing Fire, Trevor Chapman who hosts a top-five business podcast on iTunes. Jack Charles Alloca, one of the worlds top neuroscientist. The men that spend the most amount of money on YouTube and Google Ads totaling in hundreds of millions of dollars a month and the marketing genius that took GoPro from $16 million to $600 million.  There was also one individual that wasn’t as well known but just as impressive. His name is Jesse Elder and he is the guest on our show today.

Jesse is an entrepreneur, international speaker and black belt in Taekwondo. He started out building multiple martial arts schools in Texas as a young man eventually selling them to follow another vision he had to build his personal brand and become a mindset coach. I have seen A LOT of mindset coaches out there, and I can honestly say, I think he is one of the best I have ever encountered. Jesse has a way to him that can captivate those that are around him, and after I attended one of his talks, I remember how much in awe the audience of incredibly successful entrepreneurs was afterwards. Fortunate for us, Jesse was kind enough to come on the show! And by the way, this is without a doubt one of my favorite interviews.

On the show, Jesse talks about mindset in a much different way than I had ever heard. He shares tips on enhancing creativity and the importance of using that creativity in our businesses. He shares about his years teaching martial arts, the importance of understanding what is useful vs. what is truth, a powerful four-phase meditation and he also tells us about his experience fighting in underground fight clubs and being in waking delta state-of-mind.

I want to start today’s introduction off like this, I love today’s podcast and I love today’s guest. It was the first time we had ever talked and I found that our guest's story is so incredibly inspiring that it blew me away and I think it will blow you away today. Tiffany Julie is our guest today, and she is a super nomadic, world traveling, 7-figure location independent entrepreneur. She started out by sailing the open seas as a yacht captain for several years before starting her own business fixing and repairing yachts. She quickly grew that to a 7-figure business with a team of twelve and she had a dream life but knew something bigger was calling her. So she sold all of her things camped across the country and then bought a one-way ticket to Thailand.

 

After arriving, she and her partner traveled around living in different countries and testing new online businesses. Finally, they decided to start an eComm store and put all of their time into this business, when she woke up on her 32nd birthday at 4:00 am completely blind. Yes, you heard me right completely blind. This, as you can imagine, absolutely changed her life. She then flew back to the US and met with some of the best eye doctors in the world looking for solutions. The only problem was that the doctors were stumped. They had never seen a case like Tiffany’s before and they didn’t know how to fix it.

 

This is when Tiffany reached deep inside herself and threw herself into meditation, personal development podcasts, and positive thinking. The deeper she went into her meditations the more she had the feeling that everything was going to be okay. She held onto positive thoughts and positive emotions knowing that she would be healed. And, she even kept working on growing her newly launched eComm business. It took her six long months and finally one day she woke up and she could see light again. She wasn’t completely healed, but it was the first step. She got so excited that she and her partner bought tickets to move back to Thailand! She has continued the healing process and now, she can see much better. Another incredible aspect of this story is that in year-1 with her eComm business, while she was blind and partially blind Tiffany pulled in $1.4 million in sales. Year-2 has just passed and the business did over $2 million. Now Tiffany is branching off into coaching female entrepreneurs to help them be the best that they can be. It’s an absolutely amazing story!

Many people in the world were sold the lives that they are living, by people and systems that don’t necessarily serve them. They wander day-in and day-out through life wondering why they aren’t happy. This is the core concept of lifestyle design.  You designing a life that fits your needs and dreams. Today’s guest is a fellow lifestyle designer and someone that is working hard to help others opt-out of the traditional life. His name is Nate Broughton and he is the co-founder of the Opt Out Life movement and Opt Out Podcast.

 

Nate grew up in Missouri and hit a gold mine as a young college student working for a company that sold tickets online. A few years later that company was worth $22,000,000! Taking what he learned from that company and partnering with some others Nate and the team then grew a mortgage company that still runs today and two other businesses that he could exit from for over 7-figures. He then opted-out of his own life and moved to Southern California and still based there but continues to travel the world. Throughout the show, Nate and I discuss lifestyle design and creating side-hustles to help people escape 9-5’s and free them up from monthly expenses. We also talk about steps one can take building a side-hustle, how to travel with a family, and what it is like being a digital nomad.
