 Manuj Aggarwal and Michael Green discuss on how to flip your mind to become a successful entrepreneur. What are you waiting for? Tune In Now! In this episode, we will learn about: · The house flipping business· Life experiences that launch you to be an entrepreneur· Launching a business on your own· The importance of mindset in your success· How to cultivate emotional intelligence · Building a customer base· Making money in real-estate investment· Typical mistakes entrepreneurs make· The secret for being recession-proof About Michael Green Michael Green is a successful house flipper and the host of The Flip Factor, but at one point in time, this success was just a teenage boy's dream. At the age of fifteen, prompted by late-night infomercials, Michael bought the book No Money Down by Carlton Sheets, which planted the seed of eventually becoming a house flipper. However, the road to success was not always easy. Growing up next to the projects in Baltimore, Michael found himself getting into trouble, and his relationship with his dad was built on breaking the law. He started as a flooring installer, and in 2008, he was doing a job for a gentleman flipping houses named Jason Shara. Sensing his curiosity and interest in the industry, he invited Michael to a free meeting for house flippers. At this meeting, Michael was introduced to his first mentor. After just a few months of studying under his mentor, he made his first deal flipping a house for $16,000 without a single penny of his money. For the next year, he continued doing flips and made a total of $106,459, and in 2009 he was able to leave his full-time job and has been flipping houses ever since.  Links And Mentions From This Episode: · Michael's Website: http://theflipfactor.net· TetraNoodle consulting services: www.bootstrapping.group· TetraNoodle professional training: https://courses.tetranoodle.com  Thanks for Tuning In!Thanks so much for being with us this week.Have some feedback you'd like to share?

 Manuj Aggarwal and Dr. Kevin Orieux discuss how disengagement is a social disease we can cure by taking care of our businesses. What are you waiting for? Tune In Now! In this episode, we will learn about: · What disengagement is· Why disengagement is a social disease and not only an economic problem· Bringing recognition, appreciation, and promotion in your organization· Typical mistakes entrepreneurs make· Launching a business on their own· Taking care of your workers, clients, and providers· Learning and unlearning to succeed· How to achieve synergy About Dr. Kevin Orieux Dr. Kevin Orieux (or "DocKO" as he is more affectionately known by his clients and coworkers) studied psychology and sociology at the undergrad level before achieving his Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) in 1989. By combining the medical sciences with the social sciences, Dr. Orieux founded Aararat Consulting as an adjunct to his private practice clinical responsibilities in 1995. With this unique ability to operate on both sides of the scientific spectrum, Dr. Orieux has been asked to serve in numerous leadership roles in the private sector as well as leadership roles in education and healthcare at both the national and international levels. One of the biggest and certainly the most expensive problem facing business leaders and white-collared professionals, whether they be in IT, healthcare, engineering, or some form of the direct-to-client service industry, is how to defeat disengagement in the workforce. The more Dr. Orieux focused the resources of Aararat Consulting on this question the more this question became the central focus of Aararat Consulting's "raison d'etre" because this research demonstrated that what is commonly referred to as "disengagement" in the corporate world is what medicine would call an "epidemic" that has more socio-economic influence in today's global community than politics, fiscal policy, and technology combined. Links And Mentions From This Episode: Kevin's Social Media Handles: o  Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dr-kevin-orieux-9364b8/o  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aararatconsultingo  Twitter: @aararatCo  Instagram: @aararatconsultingKevin's Website:  https://www.aararat.com/TetraNoodle consulting services: www.bootstrapping.group TetraNoodle professional training: https://courses.tetranoodle.com  Thanks for Tuning In!Thanks so much for being with us this week. Have some feedback you'd like to share?
