It’s really hard to run a lot of businesses at once. Find 1 thing that you’re really good at and double down on that. Becoming a thought leader - become an expert in your desired subject matter. Say something unique and be authentic. Put content out there. Don’t be the best version of someone else. Be the best version of yourself.Become a good listener. Listen more than you speak. Is it a good idea to work with family?You need to be clearly focused on the right priorities and vision in order to move your business forward. Don’t forget to focus on cashflow and revenue. You can’t do everything on your own. In order to scale a business you need to hire good people. Work on your business. Not just in your business. When you’re starting out, take your lumps early and learn as much as you can.Follow AdamLinkedInWebsiteInstagramTwitter30 Minute Mentors PodcastCustom tobaccoBeverly Hills ChairsFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestInstagram @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

After graduating with an engineering degree and then an MBA from Ohio State, Paul entered the management development track at Ford Motor Company in Detroit. After five years, he departed to start a staffing company with a partner. They scaled and sold the company to a publicly traded firm five years later. After a brief “retirement”, Paul began investing in real estate in 2000 to protect and grow his own wealth.He completed over 85 real estate investments and exits, appeared on HGTV’s House Hunters, rehabbed and managed dozens of rental properties, built a number of new homes, and developed a subdivision. Three successful real estate developments, including assisting with the development of a Hyatt hotel and a very successful multifamily project in 2010, convinced him of the power of commercial real estate. Paul is married with 4 children and lives in Central Virginia.Episode highlights:The best way to succeed is to fail and learn from failure. Commercial vs residential real estate investing.True wealth = assets that produce income.Investing vs. speculating. Investing is math. Investing is boring. But investing is predictable.Everything has a learning curve. Take time to learn. Start small.Look for experienced mentors and coaches. NOT “gurus”Wealth doesn’t bring happiness. Success is finding out why you are on the planet and then doing it.Follow PaulLinkedInWebsiteBigger PocketsFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestInstagram @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

She leverages her understanding of large, complex organizations to help her clients effectively navigate the interpersonal and political dynamics that exist in business. Episode highlights:When what you like to do is aligned with what you’re expected to do, there’s a lot more flow and less resistance.Look at your skills and learn how you can repackage them in a way that aligns better with your interests and passions. FIRST: Define what happiness looks like. Define what you want. SECOND: Look at where you are and where you’d like to be and create a plan to close that gap.It’s not the things that happen to you, but what you think about the things that happen to you. You always have a choice. You have power over your own life. “There IS a sweet spot where career success and personal happiness intersect.”“What other people think of you is none of your business.”Follow TerryLinkedInWebsiteBook: Winning the Game of Work: Career Happiness and Success on Your Own TermsFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestInstagram @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

Hans Struzyna Bio:In my 30 years on this planet, I‘ve learned a few lessons that I apply to everything I do. The first is that all goals must be written down and visible on a daily basis. The second is that there’s no such thing as overnight success and consistent work is the only path to success. Finally, everything is the way it is because someone made it that way. So to understand people is to understand the world. I‘ve applied these lessons to my 12 year rowing career culminating as a member of the 2016 USA Olympic rowing team. After the Games, I had to descend from the metaphorical mountain I‘d spent years scaling and ended up feeling lost for the first few months. Searching for my next climb, I found real estate. I got my license six months later and have been pursuing all avenues of this business ever since. I‘m a Realtor Partner with a Wall Street Journal Top 100 nationally ranked team, The Gunderman Group. We focus on advocacy, risk management and exceeding our clients personal definitions of success. By staying true to those core values, we’re the top team in the East Bay of the Bay Area and sell over $180M per year (with over $1.5B sold in total) with an average price point of $1.2M. I’m also fascinated by real estate investing and completed my first flip during my first year in the business. My wife and I also invest in out-of-state multi family properties. I’m actively looking for my next few deals. I wanted to share the value of creating your own path and building a life of freedom, so I recently created a podcast called Another Way To Play. I believe that if you trade hours for dollars, you will never achieve true freedom in your life. I bring inspirational and practical content to listeners at their own personal crossroads by interviewing entrepreneurs, thought leaders and industry experts to learn how they achieved freedom in their lives. I recently got married to the love of my life, Kristin, who is also an Olympic rower and entrepreneur. She runs her own business and loves real estate investing and we are actively building what we call our “business/real estate empire.”Enjoy!Follow HansWebsiteFacebookInstagramYouTubeLinkedInFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestInstagram @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

Loretta Breuning: Study of the brain chemicals in animals and finding correlations in order to help us understand our brains more. Life is complicated, Loretta found that many children struggled in school in a similar way, mainly a lack of motivation. A motivation to do things that aren’t necessarily fun. The animal brain does what it needs for reward. In the modern world you can do a whole lot, for a reward, without the need to do very much.Loretta speaks on how the Society has made life easy and simple, yet we are taught that things are hard, that you experience mental illness, that you are a victim. We need to become aware of the power that we hold over our brain chemicals.Our brains are amazing, we have two main parts to our brain, the 1st part that makes humans unique from animals. The 2nd part that controls the chemicals, the fight and flight for example, which is almost entirely the same as apes. We can look to animals to understand ourselves much more. Loretta teaches us how we look for 1 up opportunities. She makes it simple for us to understand how to simply take hostile situations in the mind and build an awareness that can help us overcome stressful, traumatic, or degrading situations. These aren’t necessarily big moments; this includes small moments such as someone not laughing at your joke. Ways to distract yourself from letting your brain chemicals negatively affect you.  Distracting are healthy for 20 minutesIt’s time to get in tune with your inner mammal! Check out Loretta and her book for more information!Innermammalinstitute.org

It was really hard on her to do such a horrible story. She did a radio job, and met the CEO. She told him that she wasn’t happy in her job, and he said that he needed a marketing coordinator. She worked her way up in marketing, and eventually became an executive of marketing. She started teaching marketing and found that her true passion was helping and teaching others. Her Dad passed away, and she left her job, sold everything and went to help her mom. She decided that “life is short, you don’t know when you are going to go, you need to do what you love.” She decided to become a business coach with an expertise in marketing.Immigration, Culture, and CommunityThe younger you are, the easier it is to integrate into a new culture. She went from a small town to a big city. Andrea got caught up in the Gang culture. She went to places she shouldn’t have been. When you get to know people who are different, even when their from a “bad” place, you see that they really are just people. Put yourself in a new environment. It will teach you a new perspective on life. Where does happiness come from? Will money or worldly possessions make you happy? No. We need community! We need to feel welcomed and help other people! MarketingYou can’t run a business without marketing. You can’t run anything without marketing. What’s the point in running a business if you don’t have any sales?There is black hat and white hat marketing. The best marketing is being a good person. Marketing is vital to your business. GIVE, GIVE, GIVE, GIVE then you ASK.Provide value and people will be willing to give value back. Create real lifelong relationships with people. Most important marketing tasksFind your NicheDefine your value proposition (you aren’t selling a product or service you are selling a transformation)Create a lead magnet Creating a Personal BrandBecome a Thought LeaderLinkedIn is an important platform for this. Get a LinkedIn account and start growing your network. Most important: create valuable content related to your industry. Even if you’re not an expert, start learning!

You need to take care of yourself first. MotivationFitness is a lifestyle.A motivator can be ego and wanting to be macho. This can be a great motivator, but a stronger motivator can be love. Being motivated by relationships is powerful. There is nothing wrong with wanting to have abs or biceps. There should be a deeper, more meaningful why, though. People say: “I want to feel better.” The problem with “better:” you can always be better. What does better look like? You need to define it. Making time for yourselfYou invest in your businessYou invest in your familyYou invest in so many things.

This week we talk to top 100 podcaster, Rom Raviv. We talk about entrepreneurship, college, podcasting, podblade, and more. Enjoy the show! Welcome to 2020! Rom’s StoryRom is 19 years old. He’s currently a sophomore in college studying digital marketingHe has a top 100 podcast called Spreading SuccessHe noticed people like Gary Vee that were creating content. His dad was an entrepreneur, but his interest in Entrepreneurship came organically watching and listening to content. He has now started a company around podcastingCreating ContentSTART as early as possible. The earlier you start, the better off you’ll be.Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. CollegeRom was fortunate to get a full ride scholarship. College is for some people, but not for everyone. If you go to college, take advantage of clubs and networking. There are so many entrepreneurial opportunities! College is a cushion between high school and the real world. It’s a great opportunity to explore and test things out without super high stakes. PodcastingRom started his business journey with drop shipping. He went to an event and one of the speakers at the event was Casey Adams. Casey told the group that the #1 thing they should do is start a podcast. Rom immediately ordered a microphone, and made a goal to start a top 100 podcast. He made a list of the people he wanted on the podcast. Many of them have been on the show! Think of a podcast as a free mentorship call.It’s basically a FaceTime call with a microphone. Be clear on your goals. For Rom, # of listeners isn’t as important as the relationships he is making. Find something that brings VALUE and PASSION.Rom has decided not to monetize his podcast. PodbladeRom and his partner, Apple Crider, have started a professional podcast editing company. They will edit a show for $20/episode. Rom got connected with Apple, and they started talking about podcasts. Over time, Rom proved that he was serious about podcasting and improving. Eventually, Apple offered his editor to Rom. Now, they are running a full podcast editing company. Facebook CommunitiesPodcasting Community by Podblade!To grow the podblade customer base, Rom and Apple created a Facebook community for podcasters. It is a thriving place for To create a vibrant group:Don’t allow people to spam links! Instead create specific threads. Send personal invites to get people into the group. Create a safe space. Create value. Make the group fun! Social Media TipsGet in on newer social networks like TikTokCreate content specifically catered to different platforms.

Have you ever wanted something so bad that it’s all you could think about? Well, on this episode of SuccessQuest, Nicole Matthews will teach you how to accomplish your dreams. In fact, it’s as simple as asking :)Nicole’s StoryShe has been an entrepreneur since 2007.She was working in events and PR for a big law firm. She felt like she was in a wrong spot, and it took her 5 years to get out of her job. She started her business on the side and eventually went in full time. She founded Henley Co. They plan events and do concierge service. She’s worked 3 Olympic Games and 6 Super Bowls. Side Hustle vs. Jumping all inNicole is grateful that she spend time in corporate America for a while. You are where you are to learn the lessons you need to learn and make the connections you need to make. Because she started it as a side hustle, she was able to slowly scale her business and learn skills from her current job. How do you know when it’s time to move on?A family friend had a 14 month old almost drown. This made Nicole think about how short life is, and she didn’t want to live it with any regrets. She hadn’t planed on quitting, but one day, going into work, she felt peace and decided to quit. Benefits of eventsTechnology is amazing, and it provides opportunities to meet virtually. That said, there is still a huge benefit of meeting face to face. Don’t throw parties for the sake of parties. An event needs to be purposeful and well planed. If the event could be done virtually, maybe it should be. Do something different that makes the face-to-face connection meaningful.Struggles building a companyYou need to be brave enough to get out of what you’re not good at. Be willing to outsource work you don’t care about or aren’t good at. The whole point of doing your own thing is being free and creative. If it feels like a job, then why not stay in corporate America. Do what makes you feel fulfilled. Outsourcing & DelegationAs your business grows, you NEED to have your business continue even if YOU can’t be there. Be selective. Be clear on direction. Understand that they won’t love your business like you do. TRUST - you have to trust people to get the work done. BIG ASKBook - Permission! Stop Competing and Start Creating the Life You Want to LiveNicole loves the olympics and England. When she heard the olympics were going to be in London, she really wanted to work at the olympics. The power of a network: “Somebody I know, knows somebody that can make it happen”You have to be bold enough to ask people to help you accomplish your goals. She sent a message to her network letting people know about her goal (125 people). She got about 30 responses!She was connected with people who helped her become the account manager for the CEO of Visa Europe. She was his personal assistant for the course of the games. She had an amazing experience, and it all happened because she was willing to ask. Follow NicoleNicole’s WebsiteThe Henley CompanyPermission!

This, after a lifetime of struggle (financial and emotional), including extraordinary failures, fibromyalgia, IBS, and suicidal plans.In 2016, not only was she able to pay her bills, but she'd also travelled to America (multiple cities) three times, Spain (twice), Ireland, and Greece (paying for her sister and son to come with her to Greece).She now lives in Peoria, Illinois (which she loves), is married to the love of her life (they met in Feb 2017), doing what she loves for a living AND - She now owns the rental properties she used to clean! What Changed:She discovered two things that helped create the success she experienced:1 - Based on the latest in neuroscience, She conditioned her brain and body, physiologically, to produce more "feel-good" chemicals like endorphins, serotonin, and oxytocin (which she then developed into a modality, and wrote a book on the topic: You Have a Superpower).Whenever you're feeling any negative emotion, your brain and body are producing stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol.These stress chemicals cause blood to drain from the prefrontal cortex of your brain (where you do your cognitive thinking like problem-solving, strategizing, processing information, and noticing opportunities) - so you literally can't think straight and your judgement is impaired.When you switch from stress chemicals to feel-good chemicals, blood returns to the prefrontal cortex, bringing that part of your brain back "online".So, feeling good is about more than just feeling good - it's about keeping your cognitive thinking online! ;)2 - Again, based on neuroscience, she discovered the connection between subconscious "evidence" from childhood and teenage experiences, that "proves" who we are and how the world works - and the results and struggles we experience in life as adults... and how to change it.For more on the science behind that, here's an article that sites some of the scientific references:Can We Change Adverse Childhood Memories?She and her husband created a proprietary modality: The Remmert Method - which helps people to:Gain complete control over their emotional state (and condition their brain and body to produce more "feel-good" chemicals - like you would condition your body to get fitter through an exercise program. Change the original subconscious "evidence" that is supporting the limiting subconscious beliefs ... that are creating the current resultsIt's like changing the "GPS" in your subconscious - to where you want to go, rather than leaving it on "default".For more details and information on what we do and how it works, and to see a little of what we'd be like to interview, here are some links:YouTube Videos:One Quick Tip for How to Overcome Procrastination: 4 minutesHow to Find Subconscious Money Blocks: 15 minutesA Live Demonstration of Using One of Our Techniques with a Viewer during a Facebook Live - to find a limiting subconscious money block: 25 minutesHow to Deal with Negative Thoughts: 5 minutesHow Your Subconscious is Controlling Your Emotions: 8 minutesMore Information on Childhood Memory Transformation, on our website:https://www.theremmertmethod.com/what-is-cmt.htmlFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestInstagram @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

In this episode we jump into the shoes of Lynda Sunshine West whose upbringing led to an incredible amount of fear and anxiety. Yet through those hardships she rose and became the success she is today! Listen closely and take notes! She has changed her life and soon she may change yours. Lynda’s StoryGrowing up Father her was an Alcoholic which affected the family both physically and mentally. She grew up with fears of being ridiculed, judged, and abused. At 5 years old she ran away for an entire week to escape. And when she did this... no one came to get her. Fast forward to her adult life, she married someone like her dad. She was hit once, and she got out of that relationship. She couldn't just relive the same life. After she left, she met her current husband (relationship of 31 years now). Now at 51 after hiring a life coach, she has learned to peel away the pain and traumas. Now she has re-emerged as a coach herself. She then decided to follow her passion of helping people. Jumping into business without a "net". She quit her job suddenly and out of the blue to pursue her passion. First thing, everyday she decided to face a fear for an entire year. She would wake up and find a fear first thing in the morning then faced it everyday. And she did it. For an entire YEAR. Now she has built up real solid confidence. What would you say to someone who is either being abused or dealing with hard times? Everyday was pain. Fear. No more. I don't know what you're going through personally, but there are ways out of that. But the thing you have to do is GET AWAY. Live your life with NO REGRETS. Reach out to people, even strangers, find SOMEBODY who you can talk to. You need to be HEARD. You have a decision. Lynda has always had a burning desire to do something great. But to get out of the "rut' she was in, she had to find ways to change her mindset, her pattern of behavior. "You're either interested or you're committed. A want isn't a commitment." Value Bomb! How do you define Success? How did you decide you weren't successful in your well paying job? Everyday driving to work was the worst. Work was a source of sadness.How did Spirituality factor into your story?It didn't really play a role growing up but there was a time where she felt she had found Jesus. If you truly have faith you know things are going to work out. FEAR - FAITH ERASES ANXIOUS REACTIONSCheck in with your faithTell us a little about what you're doing now! Women’s mastermind programHelping others find their purpose. Help women gain confidence, clarity, and focusCheck out Lynda at Women Action Takers, or find her on Social Media with Lynda Sunshine West. https://form.jotform.us/90556299122158 Follow LyndaWomen Action TakersWomen Action Takers Facebook GroupLinkedInTwitter @lyndamwestInstagram @lyndasunshinewestFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestInstagram @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

Jacob and Marco Yim talk about effective communication, public speaking, interviewing and resumes. With over 10 years of experience in speaking, training, and workshop facilitation, Marco knows that anyone can become a great communicator. With the right training, preparation, and mindset, speaking can shift from feeling like a nightmare to an energizing, confidence-boosting experience.Whether you’re trying to land a new job, presenting at a small meeting, or demanding a refund on a defective product, speaking with impact matters!Enjoy!About MarcoMarco started his undergrad hoping to become a lawyer.In his last year of studies, he decided that he didn’t want to be a lawyer. He worked as a technical writer for two years.He transitioned to working as a customer success rep at SAAS companies. He started his own company: Extempra to help young professionals speak with confidence and credibility in the workplaceOther’s expectations vs. your own pathMarco’s parents expected him to be a “professional”Have a frank conversation with people about what you want in life. Over time, they’ll come to see that it’s the best pathAll experience is valuableEvery experience, no matter how big or small is an opportunity to hone your skills. Jumping around to different roles can provide a lot of different experience in different areas. Moving around is great as long as you can tell a narrative of your professional experience. Customer SuccessSSAS - Software As a ServiceA customer success rep owns the customer experience from beginning to end. They meet with customers and help them reach their goals. They help the customer grow and nurture the companies relationship with the client. The best way to grow any business is by nurturing the relationship with the client. Public SpeakingInstead of focusing on problem areas, think about what you are good at. Find your strengths as a speaker and really focus on those. FILLER WORDS! There is actually an acceptable number of filler words. They can help the audience process what we’re saying. UMS, AHS, AND FILLER WORDS: WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH ACTUALLY SAY?You don’t have to be incredibly enthusiastic and energetic to be a good speaker. If you don’t have as much energy, double down on more facts and research. You can be just as impactful as a speaker.1.28 filler words per 100 words is the tipping point. Filler words can contribute to authenticity.If you moderate your pace, you’ll use less filler words. Get immediate feedback! Becoming aware of your quirks as a speaker will help you change them.Record Yourself!Interviewing SkillsSpeaking and Job interviews are similar. Structure is incredibly important. The interviewer should be able to write clear notes on what your answer was. Prepare for the common questions (Example: “What are your strengths/weaknesses”)There are 5 Major types of questions:1: Generic About you questions2: Situational/Behavioral questions3: Technical questions4: Negative-reframe questions5: Extemporaneous questionsTHE BIG 5 INTERVIEW QUESTION TYPES INFOGRAPHICBack up your answers with stories!When you don’t know what to say, use the first thing that comes to mind. PEP- Point, Example, PointIf you can’t think of an answer, explain your process to the interviewer. ResumesFORMATINGBe careful. Keep your formatting simple so that Applicant Tracking Systems can go through them. If you’re applying to a smaller start up, it can be more creative. Keep the formatting clean and consistent. CONTENTGive details!! Instead of saying that you “planed an event” explain exactly what you did to plan the event. Give statistics, numbers and key indicators. Show that you know the measure of success. Drill deeper!ALWAYS adapt your resume to each job application. Use keywords and choose which experience and bullets to include. To help with this, you can have a master resume that you adjust. Connect with MarcoExtempraLinkedInFacebookmarco@extempra.comFollow Jacob:WebsiteLinkedInTwitter: @jacob_m_harmonFollow Kalob:LinkedInFollow SuccessQuest:WebsiteBlogFacebook PageCommunity (Facebook Group)LinkedInTwitter: @MySuccessQuestSupport SuccessQuestWe work incredibly hard to create our podcast, newsletter, Facebook group and more.

Jacob talks to Manuj Aggarwal about building businesses, mindset, anxiety, depression, and spirituality. Manuj is a successful CTO, and he's worked at large technology corporations as well as smaller technology startups. Originally from India, Manuj started his career working in a factory and making $2/day. Manuj AggarwalManuj started working in a factory making $2/day when he was 15. He wanted more, so he enrolled in a computer programing course.Since then, he’s worked at large corporations and small startups.He had a tough childhood that left a lot of scars. He turned to spirituality, and was able to help his situation. From $2/day to a successful CTOMINDSET. What do you want out of life?You don’t need to know how to get there, just know what you want. Take it one step at a time. Inches accumulate into miles.Surround yourself with good people.Fill yourself with good thoughts.Be ambitious.Don’t give up.Building a companyBusinesses revolve around revenue.Focus on revenue. Find the path of least resistance to get revenue. Find a niche that doesn’t have a lot of competition. Look for needs in the market. Find a niche that you’re passionate about. The more specific the niche the better. BootstrappingVenture capital and angel investors are becoming popular, but many successful business build slow and steady. Build your company feature by feature. Reinvest revenue and grow organically. Historically, this is how businesses have been built. Get feedback from your customers so you know you’re building something people want. When you have revenue before you raise money you have more leverage in negotiation.MindsetEntrepreneurship is about mindset. It’s not an easy road. You need to be prepared to put in a lot of work. 90% of entrepreneurship is experimentation and many fail. If you’re not careful, you’ll get fatigued mentally and spiritually. Social media gives us an incorrect view of what the world is like. Enjoy the journey :).Emotional HealthAnxiety and Depression are very common right now. Often, they originate from experiences that we’ve had. For Manuj, his anxiety came from being uncertain about what would come in the future. It can be like a fog around your mind. Seek help! Talk to someone! Peel back the layers and try to understand why you are the way you are. Try to understand your thought patterns. SpiritualityManuj grew up in India, where religion is an important part of society. Unfortunately, many religious organizations have turned spirituality into a transaction where you have to “purchase” your way to heaven. Manuj has become deeply spiritual.
