Launch Week: She Sold $323k In 28 Days
Today, Ryan talks with Cathryn Lavery of the Best Self Co. to find out how this super-scrappy founder launched on Kickstarter. While many entrepreneurs seeking funding give Kickstarter a shot and get mediocre results, Cathryn did it the smart way. The result? Not only did she fund her first inventory round, but her second and third, too! If you plan to launch your own product on Kickstarter, listen in and take notes because you’ll learn from someone who’s learned to navigate all the pitfalls and make crowdfunding work. And if you hadn’t even thought about using Kickstarter for your launch, stop everything! Give this a listen to see whether crowdfunding makes sense for you. After you listen, I’d love to hear your thoughts on using this solution for funding your business.

Here’s something weird… and it 100% determines whether you will succeed as an entrepreneur. It’s the one difference between two people who… Both say they want to start a business. Both have ambition running through their veins. Both say they WANT it. Both go through the same exact training, read the same books, and have the same blueprint. But one seemingly small difference between these two people determines whether they’ll become wildly successful... or become stuck and bitter. The only difference? It’s not what you might think. As you listen to this podcast episode you may find yourself feeling terrified (in a good way!)... and oddly, even MORE eager to get started building your own business. I’d love to hear what shift you experience as a result of listening today.

1,000 Day Goals
When I became a dad, I started thinking much longer term, and now that perspective shows in the way I set goals. Today, I’m going to share with you how I’m setting 1,000 day goals - and how this longer view pairs beautifully with my T.R.I.B.E. 5 system. I’ve moved away from setting outcome-based goals and toward process-based goals instead. I invite you to join me in taking a much longer view with your goals. It’ll be fun to do it together!

How to Make 2021 Not Suck
Did 2020 suck for you? Or was it the best year yet? Your assessment of 2020 and your experience of 2021 all depend on which “menu” of options you choose. You could choose from the menu where everything sucks and nothing’s working for you… Or, you can choose from an entirely different menu, one full of new possibilities that all come together to make 2021 the best year yet. In this episode, Ryan shares four “extended menu options” anyone can choose from to make 2021 a fantastic year. It all boils down to a series of decisions - and they impact your business, your relationships, and your own wellbeing. Best of all, you don’t even have to wait for the new year to start. You can make these decisions starting right now. If you do, and you look back at 2020, we’d love to hear how your take on the year shifts. Here’s to setting ourselves up for a great 2021!

The Shark Tank Episode: "Pitch Week" From The Capitalism Incubator
Today, you’re in for a treat. Inside the Capitalism Incubator, a couple dozen brand owners have been busy preparing to launch their million-dollar brands. Each one of these entrepreneurs has taken ownership of a problem that’s plaguing a specific group of people who are hoping and praying someone, somewhere will come up with a solution. These brand owners are about to answer their audiences’ prayers. Now, as I’ve taught over and over, you don’t have to have a big bankroll to launch a million-dollar brand. I recently published a video on YouTube detailing how I launched a brand with just $600, and later sold it for $16 million. But having investors backing your brand can sure help speed up the process. That’s why we put our Cap Inc students through a powerful exercise we call Pitch Week. It’s grueling at times. It’s emotional. It’s a huge stretch for some. But they did it! (And they’ll be the first to tell you that this assignment was incredibly valuable for them.) Give a listen, and you’ll hear a handful of our Cap Inc students pitch their brands to a panel of investors. If you’re a budding entrepreneur, you’ll pick up some gems of insight that can give you clarity as you think about the brand you want to build. If you’re an investor, you’ll get a sneak peek at the kinds of brands the Capitalism Incubator is helping to launch. Enjoy!

How Jason Grew 3x & Crossed $250k/mo During The Pandemic
Today, I’m joined by Jason Franciosa. Jason’s the co-owner of a brand that serves the CrossFit community - and he’s the head coach inside the Capitalism Incubator. About a year ago, we had a conversation about how his company was just on the cusp of reaching a million dollars in sales for the year. Fast-forward to 2020, the year of the pandemic. Sure enough, the business faced some of its biggest butt-puckering challenges ever. But… Jason’s still grown it 300% this year, and monthly revenue now tops $250K. I wanted to share this conversation with you because right before Jason started this venture, he was about to give up his entrepreneurial dreams and go get a job. Instead, he went all in, one last time… and he says it was the best decision he’s ever made. No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, there are priceless bits of wisdom for you in this conversation. Give it a listen, and let me know what you think.

Because if you create a crystal clear vision for where you're going, you can build the road knowing you’ll get there. Even more, you can get there faster with the help of a few key relationships who can bring resources to the table. Each member you’re about to meet is on their way to building a 7-8- figure business.

You’ll meet Damien, Kristy, Keerthan, and Yasmine and hear about their experience inside the Incubator and where they’re headed with the brands they’re creating.Prepare to be inspired and impressed by what these four entrepreneurs are up to.

How Gemma and Georgie Crossed 7-Figures In A Competitive Niche
A few years ago, two Australian entrepreneurs joined me at the lake house for a Backroom event. They’d built a wellness brand selling yoga products, and were right around seven-figures in annual revenue. Fantastic, right? Well, they were walking into a room of people doing $300K to $400K a month. It would have been easy for them to feel intimidated and even to wonder what they were doing wrong. But they set their sights on much bigger milestones, and kept doing the right things for the right reasons. I’m really proud of Gemma and Georgie and what they’ve created through Ajna Wellbeing, and know you’ll love getting to listen in on this conversation. We recorded it for our Capitalism Incubator. But this discussion is so inspiring that we wanted to share it with everyone. Enjoy!

My Doctor, Dan Stickler: Ideal Diets, Psychedelics, & Upgrading The Human Experience
One of the best things about having the Capitalism.com podcast is that I get to introduce my audience to people and resources they may never have encountered otherwise. This is one of those episodes. You’ll meet my doctor, Dr. Dan Stickler. Doctor Dan has become my trusted guide as I optimize my health and wellbeing. But I’m not alone in that. He’s also the go-to doctor among Austin entrepreneurs because he’s at the forefront of cutting edge medicine, including nutrition and psychedelics. You’ll see why after you listen to our conversation. We’re going to go deep here, talking about consciousness and other topics that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But the risk of being a little “woo-woo” here is worth it to me because I believe the ROI on an entrepreneur’s health and wellbeing is impossible to overstate. You’ll also learn how you can work with Doctor Dan if you’d like - and you’ll be able to do so at a relatively affordable price through his special offer. After you listen, I would love to hear your thoughts on this discussion.

Trading Stock Options for Fun and Profit
My friend Ryan Coisson and I have the same side hustle. We’ve both built successful e-comm businesses and both have a fascination with the stock market. But we’re not day traders! To us, that seems like no way to live… eyeballs glued to ten different screens, blood pressure through the roof, making hundreds of trades every day. No way. Instead, we’re hooked on trading stock options - and we only spend a few hours a month, tops, doing it. Ryan Coisson’s my mentor in this arena, and I brought him into The One Percent to talk about it. Of course, neither of us is an investment advisor… this is purely for entertainment purposes. Tune in, and you may just discover that this stock investment strategy gets you jizzer-jazzered up, too!

If They Can Be Worth $400 Million, You Can Have An 8-Figure Exit
After chatting with Bill Glaser of Outstanding Foods (one of the companies I invest in), our conversation shifted to a coffee creamer company called Laird Superfood. With revenues of only $19 million, investors just valued this company at $400 million. Their products aren't even all that different from their competitors’ and yet they went public with a nine-figure valuation because they're a good brand. You have the same type of opportunity. You're just as qualified as any of them. It might take a few years for that vision to come to life, so now is a really good time to set that vision. This discussion gave me a major braingasm about Capitalism.com, too. Now, I’m thinking bigger than ever before. Listen in and let me know what light bulbs go off for you as a result of this conversation.

Get Unstuck: Conversations with Capitalists
Hey Entrepreneurs, Ever feel so stuck and stymied by a burning question that it’s hard to move forward building your business? Happens all the time. One of my favorite things about the time I spend with The One Percent community is when we open the floor to take questions just like that. The best moment is when I see the lightbulb come on - or as we call it, a #braingasm. After these mental roadblocks are cleared, it’s so much fun to watch these folks run full speed ahead. I wanted to share this Q&A session with you because I suspect a *few* of you may have similar questions holding your brain captive and keeping you from building the business you’re dreaming about, too. Give it a listen, and when you’re ready, why not join us inside The One Percent, so you can ask YOUR next question!

Do We Live In An Expanding Universe?
Is the world getting better... or worse? Is there more opportunity now... or less? The answer lies in the filters we use to process what we see.

Here is the foundational filter that will determine whether you will succeed as an entrepreneur. This may be the most important podcast you listen to because this discussion will help you identify what your brain says is possible for you.
