457. Successful People Do These 5 Things
In This Episode, You Will Learn About: Showing enthusiasm and passion Taking messy action Getting comfortable with asking for help Collaborating for success Showing up consistently, even when things are hard Resources: Text FAST to 310-421-0416 to get early access to my mastermind and $500 off your enrollment Show Notes: We’ve worked with many successful people over our careers, and many of them go on to achieve even greater success. Meanwhile, some people continue to struggle in their businesses, never quite reaching their full potential. The thing is that what people struggle with seems to be universal: We hear it all again and again. We’ve identified the common traits that set apart those who succeed from those that struggle. If you can embrace these five traits of successful entrepreneurs, it can quickly shift your results for the better. Enthusiasm and passion Enthusiasm doesn’t mean being loud and bubbly in public — though, honestly, that can help. It means that when you describe your product, when you do your marketing, or when you tell someone what you do, people can feel the passion in you. If it doesn’t come naturally to you, don’t worry: enthusiasm is a muscle you can build. So get pumping. Messy action Time is your most valuable asset. You don’t need to know everything before you start. As long as you have some idea of what you are doing, you can figure out the rest as you go if you are just taking action. And chances are, you’ll learn it even faster. Unapologetic asker Many people are so focused on providing value to others. That’s great! But how would you provide value if you never knew what people needed? Let’s flip it around. How great would it make other people feel to know that they are providing you with something you value? That’s right: fantastic. Collaboration Collaboration is the shortcut to success. Collaboration in your business, your social media, and your marketing will fast-track you to success. Focus on networking and partnerships and help others grow while helping yourself. Instead of looking up to the titans in your industry, look to the people at your level and you can all level up together. Consistency Statistics show that people have to see your offer 7-8 times before deciding to buy from you. With how hard it is to reach people, you need to take action daily if you want people to see you enough. You can learn all of these on your own. You don’t need anything to start doing these things.

456. New Rules for a New Economy - with Ramit Sethi
In This Episode, You Will Learn About: The importance of early, consistent action in your finances The two stories of the pandemic How financial advice has shifted during the pandemic How to change your outcome Why finding a dream job is a core part of living a rich life Finding what season you’re at in your career How to systematically address wealth inequality Resources: iwt.com Find Your Dream Job: iwt.com/podcastdj Instagram: @ramit Twitter: @ramit Show Notes: Ramit Sethi returns one year after everything changed forever to talk about how the pandemic has impacted the career and finance world. He’s the author of “I Will Teach You To Be Rich” and a personal development expert with a website that gets over a million monthly visits. We leverage his experience to talk about how money management has changed since the pandemic hit, what “K-shaped recovery” means, how job and career advice has changed, and whether or not you should be looking for a new job or house right now. Question Highlights: What is the biggest predictor of financial success? What are the biggest changes in people’s finances that you’ve seen since the pandemic hit? How has your advice changed in this post-pandemic economy? What can people do today to change their outcome? Why have you shifted to talking about the job scene? What do you do when your partner is in a different career season? What systemic changes can we make to align wages with the cost of living more effectively? Guest Bio: Ramit Sethi started iwillteachyoutoberich.com while studying technology and psychology at Stanford. Since he came from a middle-class family, the only way he could afford college was to pay his own way. That's when he built a system to apply to 60+ scholarships. His hard work paid off, and he earned enough to attend Stanford. But when he got his first scholarship check, he invested it in the stock market… and immediately lost half the money. Oops. That's when he decided to learn how money really worked. While studying psychology and human behavior at Stanford, he saw all these “tips” that financial experts kept throwing around — like “Keep a budget” and “Stop spending money on lattes” — and realized most of it made no sense. He also realized experts loved to tell people what to do...but nobody was actually doing it. Instead of saying “no” to spending on everything, he wanted to use money to say YES. He knew there was a better way to live a rich life — if we could use psychology to focus on what actually works. Not just for personal finance, but all aspects of life: money, careers, relationships, business, fitness, and more. Since then, he’s been testing and sharing his findings with the world via I Will Teach You To Be Rich. He has also written a New York Times bestselling book, been profiled in a 6-page Fortune article and pictured next to Warren Buffett in Forbes Magazine. He has been featured by a long list of media, including the Wall Street Journal, ABC News, NPR, Fox Business, PBS, CNBC, and more. He also has more documented success stories than anyone else he knows — more than 20,000 at last count. Follow me on social media @ChrisWHarder on Instagram and check out chrisharder.me.

455. Is Money Good or Bad?
In This Episode You Will Learn About: Whether we are in the best or worst times Making money during tumultuous times Taking advantage of new opportunities Choosing your perspective Resources: Text FAST to 310-421-0416 to get early access to my mastermind and $500 off your enrollment Show Notes: Is money good or bad? I’ll give you my answer upfront before I explain my reasoning: Money is neither good nor bad. It is simply what you choose to interpret it as. And how you interpret it will dictate what action you take, and what action you take will determine whether it was the greatest time of your life or the worst time of your life. So start choosing the perspective that will empower you and ignite you to take action, and you’ll be on the side of the coin that talks about how great these times are.

454. Easy = Frustration
In This Episode You Will Learn About: Doing the hard things The psychology of facing tough days Choosing your version of hard Acknowledging the season that you’re in Procrastination disguised as productivity Resources: Text FAST to 310-421-0416 to join our Fast Foundations mastermind group Visit liquidiv.com and get 25% off your first order with promo code HAPPY Show Notes: When you stop doing the hard stuff, life actually feels harder. It’s not always easy to do the things you need to do to live the life that you want. But if you skip out on the hard stuff, the rest of your life is only going to get that much more difficult. Doing it may be the hard part, but the reward makes life easier. There are a couple of psychological tricks to help you face a challenging day. One is to block out the impact of how hard it’s going to be and instead focus on how it’s going to feel on the other side. You can also choose to feel grateful for everything you have in your life — including the things afforded by those hard things. You also need to acknowledge the season of life that you are in. Sometimes what you desire is on the other end of doing something you don’t want to do. If you enjoy personal space, but you have a goal that requires you to momentarily give that up, acknowledge it upfront so that you know that this is only temporary and that it will be worth it. Life is going to get hard. That’s unavoidable. But it’s up to you whether the hard things you do in life lead to a more comfortable life on the other side. Pick the hard you want in life, and don’t let the drive to live easy lead to frustration. Follow me on social media @ChrisWHarder on Instagram and check out chrisharder.me.

He tells the incredible story of starting this company from scratch, having a successful exit just a few years in, where he got the idea, how he grew it so fast, and how he leans into his superpowers. Question Highlights: How did you end up in the alcohol world? What did it feel like to exit your business? How did you learn to be content with yourself? How do you go about raising capital? What comes up next? Guest Bio: Josh started his career telling stories from behind the lens – filming, directing, writing, and producing films and documentaries featuring some of the world's top surfers, snowboards, and skateboards. The passion for bringing his athlete friends’ stories to life led him to create Saint Archer Brewing Co. and later Harland Brewing Co. Recognizing all of his friends were quickly developing a taste for hard seltzer, Josh saw an opportunity to create something different and tell a new story with friends from all walks of life. Ashland Hard Seltzer was brewed to bring together people from all walks of life, to share moments, and create stories as one. Moments are fleeting. Stories live forever. Cheers!

452. The Humbleness Sweet Spot!
In This Episode You Will Learn About: The two types of people on social media Finding the humbleness sweet spot The 50/50 rule Not judging others’ motivations Resources: Text FAST to 310-421-0416 to join my Fast Foundations mastermind group Show Notes: Social media tends to do one of two things: it makes us brag and show off way too much — which turns people off — or it makes people so afraid to show up and be judged that they hide everything that they’re doing. Being humble to a fault doesn’t do anyone any good. We’ve all seen those people that are posting pictures of themselves in lamborghinis or next to their private jets, showing off how luxurious their lives are and selling you a lifestyle that they probably aren’t even living themselves. This runs rampant on social media and it creates the impression that people with money are all conceited. This causes people to not pursue the wealth they deserve because they don’t want to be perceived that way. That brings us to the other side of the coin. Some people are just way too humble when it comes to money. They don’t show anything online because they don’t want to be judged — for what they have or what they don’t. They mean well, but they miss out on the opportunity to inspire others and give them someone to look up to, to show them what level of success is possible and the work involved to make it happen. This leads us to finding the “humbleness sweet spot.” Being able to show people what’s possible, inspiring others, but not doing it in a way that’s embarrassing or paints success in a bad way. We should all strive for finding this spot, because it’s by no means easy to judge. You’ll make mistakes — I know I have. But when we find that spot, we can all do great things.
