Natural Content He got tattoos on his face and neck. To be that kind of person and becoming a successful rapper. That says a lot about him. He always says “Marathon” and he is consistent with what he is saying and his content. After his TMZ, he has this TMZ marathon EP. He came up with Crimshaw, which is what people are hearing about him. People like his music, but they do not know who Nipsey Hussle when he was still doing Vol. 1-3 of his album. He drops Crimshaw, but he is independent. 5:00 Crimshaw is what a lot of people started to hear about him. You know, I am being selfish because I wish no ever heard about him. Because I love his music so much and I know everybody will be saying “Oh he is so amazing”, but no one knows about the NIpsey Hussle when he got no name in Volume 1-3. 15:01 Who is this major picture. He knew that this time would come. So you have to stay with your vision. Like Krypton will elevate you and be creative. Nobody has ever come with $800 mix type. He was the first to do it. So, think about that, he was the first to do it and now look at him. 20:48 He knows victory lab for 1 year, but this man is patient. He wanted to do it at the right time. So, patience.

Special Guest Katya Sarmiento Scale up your business to 7-figure 5:35 I am originally from Miami, but now I live in Atlanta, GA. I help 6 figure entrepreneur scale up to 7 figure. It not because they are having a hard time get 7 figure, but it depends if it’s going to go smoothly or not. A lot of my clients, before they work with me, they’re in this chaos. The feel messy and overwhelmed. “ As a CEO, if you are doing everything, then you are not doing one thing really well.” 15:34 I’ll help you find what systems you need and that’s rescue time. (www.rescuetime.com) and I tell this with everybody. This is what I first do with my client, is you install this application and it tracks what you do in the background. You no longer have to manually track whatever you are doing. 25:00 Even though, I didn’t show up things kept running. The team knew what to do. I have setup the system and structure. They are very aware of it. Sometimes I would show up on a teen call and I would sound terrible and I was like allergic, they are okay and they understood it 35:15 Like for example, the first phase was like ‘I have an idea’. Is this idea going to work? So, you tell people about it? Then people are interested and they pull out their credit cards and pay you. That is a milestone. So the next one is, some people paid me. How can I make them pay me consistently for this. So then you get to make it happen.. 46:28 That type of business that you are doing, but I do have a couple of freebies on there. I have like this 60mins challenge to build your funnel. I can walk you through the tech stuff and lots of freebies on there.

SWAV 334 : Building a Multi Million Dollar Subscription Box W/ Arion Zannotti
Special Guest Arion Zannotti Owner of Subscription Box Pitch Queen 3:27: I am still scared of rubbing people the wrong way. In reality, I shouldn’t really care. I do have a very strong personality.I come from a family full of boastful, loud New Yorkers. The mean what they mean and they say it. Even if you do not like it, you are going to hear it and that is who I am. 13:02 ...who they use and what the pricing like, what discounts would take place once I got like 1000, 2000 etc. In addition to that, for the add on items I literally went into whole foods and say “Hey, I use this coffee scrub and I love it. Let me see if I can shoot them an email.” I like I would go and still do go. 23:16 Investment is like courtship. You can always find you another babe, whose worth lasting, go with them. You also have to give them time. For instance. I have friends who’ve pitched on the same platform that I did. But they get 50% of the company and in the middle they decide…” You know that 50% was too much, I do not want to go with the deal” 33:50 We are already in talks with people from a few other companies that wants to acquire it. I mean that when I started the business. This is my baby, but I am a business woman. So, I would like to be acquired by a P&G or Kimberly Co. 41:10 Reach out to people like me, whatever it is. I am 6 weeks away of not paying a car payment for 4-5 months. It is crazy cause I think people are getting this emotion out of you, thinking that you’ve attained success. But, they don't know the behind the scene.

SWAV 333: The LITTLE things to do to make BIG MONEY online W Marquel Russell
Special Guest: Marquel Russell Entrepreneur Coach 4:05 So, in a nutshell, what I do is I help people. For example, you are in a business, a coach or a consultant with some level of expertise. I will help you package that and get high ticket clients. So, when I say ‘High Ticket Clients’, I am saying my clients generally charging them from $3000 - $10,000 or more. 14:05 He was probably 3 or for, no maybe a little bit older actually. So, I took him to a fair. Me and his mom, I was like in a budget. There are things I can do at the fair. 24:25 So, it does not work like that and they see that. They have false expectation, then they might quit because true entrepreneurs, know that entrepreneurship is a long game. So, when somebody comes in about podcasting and the first question is “How do I monetize it?’ then that’s like low vibration question. 35:05 I have a belief that price is never an issue in the presence of value. SO, when it comes down to your marketing I think we can speaking to a specific target audience is very very important. So, I’ll give an example. For me, at one point my marketing when I started teaching lead generation, I was targeting real marketers. And then, I started moving a little bit. I started teaching online on business and go for 6 figures. Contact Marquel Russell www.MarquelRussell.com

SWAV 332: How to Stop Sleeping on your GIFTS W Kimberly Marie Clements
Kimberly Marie Clement Web/Graphics Designer Visual Merchandise Expert 4:00 Kimberly: Let me start from the begining on why I became an entrepreneur. It was an accident, it was not on purpose. At my last job from the one where I got laid off, I was ready to get laid off. I started my business because I needed to build my portfolio because when I graduated from college in the middle of the recession, it was hard for me to find a job. I am a web designer and graphic designer. At that time people weren’t really hiring and I don’t have any experience, so what I did was I started freelancing to get my own client and build my portfolio. Since I cannot get a job, I said I’ll just create my own job. 10:00 Kimberly: So I was excited, me and my husband. When I find out that I was getting laid off, we went out and we toss out champagne. I am like, let’s order some bottle of champagne and let’s toss this cause I have to get myself it that mindset. If I didn’t, then I will be looking for another job. I was excited, but I was also still nervous. 17:30 Kimberly: When you are making 6-figures obviously you are targeting people who have more money. So, I am talking about those who are growing their business 6 figures or more. So, obviously you need to completely have a different brand aesthetics for somebody who is starting out. 24:10 Kimberly: That is so simple. The most rewarding thing for me is that I am able to spend time with my family. Like before, I was so busy during the week. I live in LA, so driving home with traffic is like 2-hrs. So, if my mother-in-law calls me and say “Hey, do you want to go hang out today” I am able to spend time with her. I know my anxiety is on an all time low. Just being able to just enjoy my life, that is the most rewarding. 30:00 Kimberly: Learn everything you can about marketing, everything about marketing cause that is the most important thing. Today, when they start a business pretty much they are an expert on what they do, but if they do not know anything about marketing they need to learn marketing and invest in a coach… www.

Special Guest: Auguste Crenshaw Coach Women Empowerment Coach 3:31 Auguste: Man, I am doing fabulous and excited. I have absolutely, everytime I see an opportunity to fire up an entrepreneur’s feet. 13:03 Auguste: … and when I get to do Facebook post. Who likes my page or any statistical data or whatever it is that I am doing, I do not want you messing up with the algorithm. Some people is so much more about running the business than just having a talent. 23:00 Auguste: You are going to figure out how you are going to pay this bills. So now, you want to go beast mode and running people in a storm. You do not know what you are doing on facebook and you want to grind and you want to work so the people have an idea what’s going on in your life. For most people, that is how you run business and it cannot be like that. When they say entrepreneurship it is not meant for everybody. So, if you're going to go through this phrase of breaking through 33:33 Auguste: You are speaking to that group when you are around me or when you are around someone else. Get down to that core where you were created. Understand how your whole path and whole life journey has been of great value. Something that you can train to transfer to someone else. 43;09 Auguste: I have too especially as a women. I do not want to crash down on time, but I wanted to make sure that I get this out there and you can cut me off if I go too far. I think this is relevant because entrepreneurship requires a grind, I believe that I have to make sure that I can get pass that. If you can get pass all of these, then I will probability is much higher than we can work together. Facebook: Auguste Crenshaw

SWAV 330 I’m Launching a Luxury Sunglasses Company & Here is Why
This episode will not be long but will be impactful. I just want to say. I hope you know what you want in your life and not chasing the wrong thing. I was thinking, I know about a month or one and half month ago, I did an episode and it was about how I am scaling down from 4 episodes a week to just 1 episode a week. How I’ve been feeling and stuff like that. So, I really want to shed more light on that and actually let you know on what is going on. So, I was really think so much.A lot of things I am thinking about and I was able to do some reflection. I have come in contact with a lot of things. A few of this things are as follows: One, I realize that I have matured and grown, I was hustling backwards. We are all fed with this lie actually. We are giving a blueprint and this people telling us to do XYZ. This people sharing this information are actually not doing that and are paying them lower. So, I just reflected on so much and I realized that I was offering service to people and yeah it was cool, money was being made. But, I feel like online entrepreneurship is becoming crowded and so taboo. It is something that people think they can do because they want to be cool. For me, I was an entrepreneur before I was online. I have always wanted freedom and be able to live my life the way I wanted it. I did not become an entrepreneur because someone showed me their face. For me, It just runs so deep in my heart and my blood. This is a part of me, you know. So, for a lot of people I was just starting to see a lot of different things. I honestly didn’t want to be part of it. I feeling used, it was always like people wanted it for me. The relationship wasn't always that beneficial. It was getting me exhausted. I just had to take sometime for myself. People say it’s self care. My theme for 2018 is psychology and taking care of yourself if need be. I cannot inspire anybody if I am not all the way where I am supposed to be. I was rejuvenating. This Are the things that I was thinking about. I realized I do not want to sell my information and knowledge. That may sound weird and crazy, but I do not want to sell it. I do not want to put a price on the information that I have. But, that is not to say that I am going to sit here and just pour it on somebody for free. So, I was like… How can I merge everything and still be able to get my point across without being exhausted and things like such. So, I did I a lot of introspect. I know a lot of people online who feels this way. Online entrepreneurship is not the only way to be entrepreneur. THere are a whole lot of world outside social media and business where people are still making million dollars. This is what leaves me to where I am right now and the decision that I made. So, I decided that I will launch a Luxury Sunglass company and I will be documenting the whole process. From the idea it came.which was last year. But, I didn’t act on it until the end of November. So, from the end of November till now, I have been documenting about what has already happened and the things I have learned. Also, I’ll be documenting from now until the future. I will be in China in March and I will be documenting that. Anything that you can think of with starting an e-commerce business, I will be documenting that. I am not playing around. There will be no fee. I will not be charging anything. I will be making a video and connecting it to a blog post. So, on my website, I will be having a blog post and the video to go with it. If you want to follow this journey called “The Visionaries Voyage” that is what I am calling this journey or voyage, you can go to www.startswithavision.com/voyage so you can receive update everytime a new article is published. So, this is what is going on right now. So, I am going to start a sunglass company and help people with their vision. These glasses will be doup! I will be documenting the behind the scenes of the marketing and everything. I will be buying GoPro and it will be Dope! I am extremely excited with this and it is very dear to my heart. I know this will be life changing and I am in no rush. So, every article will be either once or twice a week. But, you will know when there is a new article if you sign up for the update. Again visit www.startswithavision.com/voyage for you to get notified when a new article is out. I will be documenting everything from finding a manufacturer to everything! A lot of people think that they have to be an online service provider, that they have to be an online entrepreneur. You don’t! If you feel being drained and exhausted, just get out of social media. You do not have to be like that. Here are a few tips that I did. I deleted my facebook and messenger app. I also have this google extension on my Chrome, which is called FEEDKILL. It stops me from seeing my FB feeds at all. So, I do not know anything online and it makes me feel so good cause now my mind, soul and spirit is clear. I no longer accidentally thinking or seeing someone else’s life. No one is coming to me, to myself and my mind. Because of that, I am better and productive. It makes me feel confident with where I am going in this life. So, I will be launching this Luxury Sunglasses. Again visit www.startswithavision.com/voyage for you to get notified when a new article is out.

SWAV 329 : Being a BOSS at PR, Raising Capital, Increasing Influence & Income W/ Diana Mae Fernandez
Special Guest Diana Mae Fernandez 2:25 In the past year, I have been to Germany, Poland, Amsterdam, Paris, London and Spain. Every single place I have been in is my favorite place at that moment cause I just want to live in that moment. 12:00 .. wanting to make such a huge difference that you have to roll with that. Ironically, it is me sitting on a couch potato doing nothing about it and seeing all these other people living there absolute biggest dreams. And I was just kind of sitting there, like ‘Okay, it is my time! I am doing being a benchwarmer’ 23:00 I am tired working for the men and I want to be able to work for myself. So, when I left my firm. What ends up happening is that, they were like ‘Look, we want you to stay but we understand that you want to branch out and do your thing’ So, they actually gave me a check for $24,000 just to say “ Thank you for what you’ve done for us and really appreciate it”. Now, I took that $24k and I invested every single penny in stocks. I left nothing to myself. 33:00 My second year at the firm, they have invested in me with business and life coaches, so that I could just get better at my craft. So, they hired a team for me to just get better and I, to this day, nearly a decade ago this is the things that I still actively apply. 43:30 You know what’s funny! I love it, but I noticed that it makes me be outside and I just want to like sleep. But, I just wanted to be the focus. So this morning, when I woke up it was like raining in Malta. Yes! It’s the best. I was so pumped that it's raining so then I can just stay at home and focus on making money and just start selling and connecting.

SWAV 327 : From broke to a $1.8M in 7 Days W/ Suresh May
Special Guest: Suresh May Founder Wealth Weekly Media 3-times Best Selling Author 3:45 4 books.. 3 best seller. One was authored by myself and the other 3 was co-authored by other entrepreneurs. So, the first book, I actually wrote it back in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected. That is when I stumbled into publishing. 13:45 I got to tell people this. You have got to get a mentor. You have got to get somebody to show you a way. I do not know about us in our community and just the mindset of “ you gotta figure it out on your own. It is the worst way to go. 24:00 You go through that and you see, it is not as bad as you think it is. It also helps me not be fearful of things because I have been there. So, supposed like man I do not want to start this business. What if I fail. I mean, I know exactly what failure look like and I am not scared of that. 33:00 They fail most of the time because they are targeting the bottom of the market and you hear people say things that logically makes sense, but for the business perspective it doesn’t make sense at all. 44:00 Than having to deal with 2 people at a lower price point. When you sell things at a cheaper price, you tend to bring ‘high headache, low profit’ clients. If you deal with high headache, low profit client, it is your fault cause you pick it. It doesn’t magically happen. Connect with Suresh May Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/sureshmay Twitter: @sureshmay www.wealthweekly.com Email: email@example.com

I love passive things. You know, I work when I want to work, but I like passive things if I can. So, Pintrest is my next biggest one like 20%.

I can use what I already know and we would use it for Pinterest 23:00 Pictures and videos and lives. Take all of those stuff and put it on your site. That’s the type of thing that google or any search engine is going to look for. That is what they are going to see.

SWAV 324: New Announcement
Isiah Fowler I have been podcasting for 2 years now and there’s people who don’t know the story, my story. I was married and I got divorced. Right before I got divorced, I had started this podcast. When I started this podcast, it was so therapeutic for me. It was helping me cope. It was helping me do so many thing, I was making connection and was building my brand. I was building so many things and I was making money while helping people. It was cool! I went on tour, got featured on Huffington Post, I was with my first entrepreneurial mix tape and so much. We are at 320 episodes and a little more right now. 324 episodes, actually. So much has happened! Almost 100K downloads! Just very good stuff! I have just been continuing to learn and grow. I just started offering this service to other people. As a service and as a business, we’ve made money. And, I have just been in a very reflective state with this being end of the year and all. It's very crazy because, we are all in this world for whatever reason we are in it for. Figuring it out and growing, stuff like that. So for me, I have just been reflecting a lot and I have been committed to 4 days a week for the podcast for so long and I am not going to say I am burnt out, but what I will say is that I think we’ve made an executive decision to scale back to one episode a week as of now. It is the end of the year and I truly think that there is being a growth that is being held. I do not know exactly what it is, how to put my hand on it or put my finger on it. But, one thing that I will says is, there is something big about to happen. Because of that, I wanted to make sure that I am truly prepared and ready for it. This is, in my opinion the best podcast on the planet. But, I think it's time to grow and spread this wings. This is like a PSA (Public Service Announcement) to let everybody know that.. “ Hey, something is about to happen.” I do not know what it is, I can’t put a finger on it. But, I wanted to let you guys know, the faithful listeners that it is time to grow. It is time to grow right now! It’s holiday season right now is we will do the podcast once a week, every monday and as time goes on we are going to figure it out. We will see where things get us too. I may do branding or exclusively be a marketer. The thing about me is that I am so creative and free spirit. I kind of do were the wind takes me in an organized manner. For me, I think that is what it is going to be and I cannot allow to feel guilty for growing or continuing to grow and progress in life. So, this is the episode for this week. We have 320+ episodes and my mentor told me, “Your podcast is invaluable. You have so much knowledge and wisdom there.”. This podcast was my launching pad as it deed so much for me. I am grateful for what it has already done up to this point and I will just continue to do more. I am very very grateful for that and I truly do know that the future has great things and if you continue to rock with me and support this movement, this brand… then that is cool and that is perfectly fine. I promise you that things are not going to change, we are not going to stop any of that. We will just continue to grow and elevate in whatever way there is. This is not me signing off. This is just me telling everyone of the new direction and the things that has been going on behind the scenes. So, I am not going to hold you too much as I know you guys can do it. This is you guys watching and listening to me evolve. When I started this podcast, I wasn’t a business consultant who took this companies from 2M to 8M. I was a young black dude who made little money on a real estate and I had a vision. I built up this brand and from there, it was just time to continue to grow and evolve. I am 27 years old and this is just kind of what it is. So, this episode took a lot out of me. I feel like Lebron, when he was leaving Calves for the first time. He was torn and I was torn for awhile now, but it is time to announce this and it is me being real raw and vulnerable. I just hope every body continues to grow and listen to the past and the previous episodes. If you have any question, shoot me a text message at 678 841 7928. I appreciate you guys so much and I appreciate attention. All this episodes I have put out, I have put my heart and soul to it. So, I thank you all so much. You’ll be hearing from me.

SWAV 323 : How to Explode a Non Profit's Revenue W/ Kishshana Palmer
Kishshana Palmer Social Matchmaker 2:25 I help non-profit organizations partner with entrepreneur who are looking to do social goods in the world and I also help entrepreneurs who want to do good. The first thing about really where to start, how to do that, where to plug in, the type of organizations they want to be working with. 12:25 And I would go to conferences and networking thing. Meet me and I was like “oh my gosh Kishshana! I love you! You’re so awesome! Can you come and talk to my team about...?” It’s amazing, right?. So, I started small, so they invite me to come talk to their team or their board and train. That is where I get the gucci money. 22:25 People come to me and say Kishshana I head about you and introduce the opportunity. So, I was in those type of searches. 11 of them couldn’t close a thing and I say “wait a minute for every month rent is paid, bills are paid, this is getting done, that is getting done, this speaking engagement is happening, that’s happening.” So, I said “Okay, there is something to this and I really need to focus” cause clearly going back to work in an organization is not my passion. 32:45 No, but I respect people that do that. If your work can be transactional in that way, I totally understand. My work is not! I’ve tried it and it doesn’t feel authentic to me cause its not how I raise money. Raising money is raising relations anyway. So, I just haven’t made the transition of doing that. But, what I can do in a 20mins cell call if you will, is decide if I am moving the proposal or not.

Join our FB community: Deeper Than A Podcast Quote of the Day: None of us really changes overtime. We only become more fully aware. - Anne Rice You growing as a person, you work on yourself every single day. Over time you’ll have new break through and realization. People convince us that we change and that we are a different person. But, that is not the case. The case is we only become more fully aware as a person. The biggest thing is just continue to be aware of who you are. If you want to start a business, know your strength so you can focus on it. Know your weakness so you can compensate for it. Know who you are: Self awareness, self realization up to the core. Topic of the Day: Stop Letting Pride Keep You Broke I dont want you to let pride mess up your progress. I don’t want your pride to mess up your becoming. To combat that pride, you need a support system. Let me break this done for you. Imagine you are a 23yr old male entrepreneur and compare with women, so we have 2 people a man and women. Both starting at the same time. One started their business, didn’t hire a coach till on the 4th year of their journey. The whole 4 years of their journey, they were making like 40-50k a year in their business. Over time, they hired a coach and had a breakthrough. The first 4 years was the hardest time of their life, it was drastic. They have gone through it, lost money and they weren’t fully good to go. So, they were struggling. They didn’t want to get help because they think they are con-artist, liars etc. The other entrepreneur started a business and got a coach after 6 months. They had little bit of learning the basic and now they hired a coach. Now. what happens? They say “you know what, just business exploded cause I hire a coach to help me out and it revolutionized the my business”After the 6 months they are earning 250K, before that they were only earning 20-30K. Second entrepreneur didn’t have the pride. They were just “I just want to advance. I am willing to do what it takes to go further” So, think about everybody else who are being prideful and those that are not. Don’t let pride stop your progress. Now, that brings me to a good point. The reason why they have pride is because they don’t have the support system. They don’t have people in their corner letting them know what, it is okay to be vulnerable, it is okay to be transparent, it is okay to be going through your six figure for the first 6 month.

SWAV 321 : The three Permission slips W/ Shameca Tankerson
Special Guest Shameca Tankerson 3:30 Okay. So, I have been an entrepreneur for a long time. 2006, when I started as an entrepreneur and it has been a crazy long journey of really figuring stuff out and being able to step up, knowing what I really need to do. There are a lot of things going on, a lot of pretending, a lot of facade, worrying about what other people are going to think and so, I stuck on something that kept me for a little while. I just kept struggling because I keep trying to look at other people’s expectation of me. 13:30 There was something inside of me that said. You are in it now! Enjoy it! I just surrendered the moment and that is how it changed. Everyday of my life, I am surrendering to the moment. Like, you only have one life. You do not know when that is going to be gone. 23:30 … to allow myself permission to have clients and to let people pay me, cause that is what is happening. I was certain I want client, but I would sabotage every step of the way cause there was something inside of me that was fearful and that would say “Oh, what if I get this great client and I mess it up?” 33:30 … being pushy or looking to proud, or pride for whatever the case maybe, who do you think you are. This is inside my head that kept the people around me who would have hired me, but because they don’t really know what I can do for them or I don’t have the confidence or the certainty, or I didn’t appear to them to have the confidence they would have hired someone else. 43:30 I just kind of posted this yesterday. I was writing “Don’t let struggle become your identity” right? Cause the more you identify with the struggle, the more you keep creating struggle. It is not the step or the action, it is about who you are being inside of the action. Connect with Shameca Tankerson bit.ly/FEARSTOPSHERE http://shamecatankerson.com/

SWAV 318 : $2,000 in 30 Days from Scratch
Quote of the Day: Don't ask why someone keeps hurting you. Ask why you keep letting them. This is about the way people approach you. A lot of times we get mad when somebody says ‘Hey, can I get a discount” or we get mad when we are on the phone with a client or something then they say “I didn’t know it will be that much”. How do we stop that? How do we combat that? We figure out what we are doing wrong. Success is an inside job. Entrepreneur has an inside job. It is all about looking in the mirror and try becoming the best version of you/ yourself. Topic for the day: $2,000 in 30 Days from Scratch The challenge… Start with yard sale or dollar tree Visit the store and get a feel of Amazon Dollar Tree - All they sell for a dollar Go on Ebay - See how much you can resell it.

SWAV 317 : High Ticket Ecommere W/ Earnest Epps
Guest of the Day Earnest Epps Ecommerce Master 5:00 Turn into a big thing and it was crazy cause I have seen it happen so many times. I have a coaching client of mine. She told mine she wanted to pause her service. She won't be pausingmy payment because she use to pay me that time. She was going to pause her service cause she was going on a cruise, like a vacation for two weeks. So I said… 15:00 .. They are no cash register in my car! I am freaked out, cause I am like “Boy, someone bought something. Is it real or is it fraud?” I checked everything and figured out. I was like “Oh it looks Legit” I hit the process payment and it went through. I was like “Now what do I do next?” So, let me contact the supplier and let them know you got an order. 25:00 Yeah! It was just a result of me just out here taking action and sharing what people likes. Some of the results that I was able to get. I am not like “Hey, look at me, I am the one” But more so, like “Hey, this is what I am doing. This is what I did to get this result or this is what I am doing to get this results.” 35:00 We are paying 10 grand a month to be in a mall. The reason why they can charge that was because the state of the people coming to that location is in the buying mode so they know what the return of investment could be if you maximize the space that you have. So, that is what the shopping section is on google. The same was as in the mall cause no one clicks on the shopping section in google unless they potentially have the interest of purchasing. ‘ “Don’t let what you can't do, stop you to do what you can do.” Connect With Earnest Epps www.EarnestEpps.com Social Media Handle: @EarnestEpps
