Frank and Mitch moved again into a bigger space and chased their dream of entreprenuerialship. They both leaped and opened up branches in North Scottsdale. A risk that they don't regret as it has been very fruitful for them both. While hiring employees with experience is the norm. When they opened these branches, one of the big things is that they saw an opportunity to invest training and their knowledge into people who were interested in starting in real estate or the mortgage industry. They created a program to bring in people of all backgrounds to be loan officers after educating, training, and passing the test."When somebody wants something bad enough, and you're willing to invest the time in them, they can be your best employee without the experience." If you are in the LBGTQ community and want to reach out, need support or advice, please reach out to Mitch and Frank. Such a fantastic episode with Frank and Mitch!

Emily Johnson is a mom of 2, married 13 years, owns a hot yoga studio, and is a registered nurse. As if that wasn’t enough, she then went on to get a degree as a family nurse practitioner - amazing!When asked how Emily does it all she says that she has learned over the years to ask for help and has a lot of support. She says that she was never comfortable asking for help as a little girl growing up. She thought that it was a sign of weakness. She now realizes that this is not true at all. Emily’s son Miles in 2020 got off the school bus and she didn’t recognize him. He had become a different child and it was devastating for Emily. It took months to get a proper diagnosis as many of these children are misdiagnosed with a cornucopia, an alphabet soup, of ADHD, autism, anxiety, tics and Tourettes. PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndromes) and PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) Emily's son had multiple strep infections, and those infections caused an immune response in the body, which is normal. Still, with PANDAS, it is a misdirected response, and in the blood, antibodies are created. These antibodies create inflammation in the body and the brain. Emily created the PANS Party Project this year. You can find them on Facebook if you are a parent in need of support. Most parents can identify the exact time where their child changed overnight. It’s essential not to be consumed by our grief. Acknowledge it, and purposefully use your pain.  Be sure to follow and listen to find if there is a cure for PANS & PANDAS. If you are struggling with a diagnosis of PANS or PANDAS, make sure that you find the group on Facebook or click here. Check out the Resilience Naturopathic and #ResilientMoms if you are on Peloton!Ways to connect with us:Website Instagram @TheKAMProjectorg    @actionistalive    @whiskitwithflava YouTube - Whisk it with flAVASpecial Thanks To:Rob Actis - For gifting The KAM Project BrandingDan Lipton - For composing KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast musicSara Mann - For KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast voiceovers Leah Bryant - Podcast Producer/Virtual AssistantSocial Media Tags:@actionistalive@whiskitwithflava@thekamprojectorg@emilyjohnsonrn@michelleducie @Leah_bryant_co @elonmusk Clubhouse:@actionistalive@emilyjohnsonrnHashtags:#thekamproject#actionistalive#whiskitwithflava#thepanspartyprojectMentions:PANS Party ProjectElon MuskPeloton

Emily Johnson is a mom of 2, married 13 years, owns a hot yoga studio, and a registered nurse. As if that wasn’t enough, she then went on to get a degree as a family nurse practitioner - amazing!When asked how Emily does it all, she says that she has learned to ask for help and has a lot of support over the years. She says that she was never comfortable asking for help as a little girl growing up. She thought that it was a sign of weakness. She now realizes that this is not true at all. Emily’s son Miles in 2020 got off the school bus, and she didn’t recognize him. He had become a different child, and it was devastating for Emily. It took months to get a proper diagnosis as many of these children are misdiagnosed with a cornucopia, an alphabet soup, of ADHD, autism, anxiety, tics, and Tourettes. PANS (Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndromes) and PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections) Emily's son had multiple strep infections, and those infections caused an immune response in the body, which is normal. Still, with PANDAS, it is a misdirected response, and in the blood, antibodies are created. These antibodies create inflammation in the body and the brain.Emily created the PANS Party Project this year. You can find them on Facebook if you are a parent in need of support. Most parents can identify the exact time where their child changed overnight. It’s essential not to be consumed by our grief. Acknowledge it, and purposefully use your pain.  Be sure to follow and listen to find if there is a cure for PANS & PANDAS. If you are struggling with a diagnosis of PANS or PANDAS, make sure that you find the group on Facebook or click here. Check out the Resilience Naturopathic and #ResilientMoms if you on Peloton! Ways to connect with us:Website Instagram @TheKAMProjectorg    @actionistalive    @whiskitwithflava YouTube - Whisk it with flAVA Special Thanks To:Rob Actis - For gifting The KAM Project BrandingDan Lipton - For composing KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast musicSara Mann - For KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast voiceovers Leah Bryant - Podcast Producer/Virtual Assistant Social Media Tags:@actionistalive@whiskitwithflava@thekamprojectorg@emilyjohnsonrn@michelleducie @Leah_bryant_co @elonmusk  Clubhouse:@actionistalive@emilyjohnsonrn Hashtags:#thekamproject#actionistalive#whiskitwithflava#thepanspartyproject Mentions:PANS Party ProjectElon MuskPeloton

Tishel is a 19-year-old entrepreneur from Trinidad. She says her inspiration is her dad because he always put them in the right environment. Tishel's step into entrepreneurialism started at a young age. At 15, Tishel's dad took her to a conference with Grant Cardone to learn about marketing, personal brand, real estate, and much more. Like most 15-year-olds, she wasn't sure of the value of why she was going. But she quickly realized just how impactful that moment would be in her early years. Tishel said that her environment is what helped her get to where she is today. Tishel has gone from selling candy at her high school to being a digital investor. She does a quicker way of trading called binary options. Where within 2 minutes you could make your profit. She also does traditional trading that taps into cryptocurrency. She says that virtual trading is here to stay as it's more time-efficient. One tip that she said that parents should remember is to have their children not be paid for chores but rather have them read a book and come back and tell you what they learned. "You shouldn't get money for your time; you should get money for the value you bring.""Sometimes, it's more about how you make money than how much money you make." Connect with Tishel:InstagramOr hereWays to connect with us:Website Instagram @TheKAMProjectorg    @actionistalive    @whiskitwithflava YouTube - Whisk it with flAVA Special Thanks To:Rob Actis - For gifting The KAM Project BrandingDan Lipton - For composing KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast musicSara Mann - For KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast voiceovers Leah Bryant - Podcast Producer/Virtual Assistant Social Media Tags:@actionistalive@whiskitwithflava@thekamprojectorg@grantcardone Clubhouse:@actionistaliveHashtags:#thekamproject#actionistalive#whiskitwithflavaMentions:immasteredacademy  Grant Cardone

Frank and Mitch saw an opportunity to have Gavin and Ava help with their dog, Tanner. Gavin and Ava both quickly fell in love with Tanner. What Frank and Mitch did for Gavin was special. They got Gavin out of his shell by letting him take care of Tanner. Both Frank and Mitch are in the mortgage industry in operations; Mitch for nine years and Frank for 20 years. Frank and Mitch moved again into a bigger space and chased their dream of entreprenuerialship. They both leaped and opened up branches in North Scottsdale. A risk that they don't regret as it has been very fruitful for them both. While hiring employees with experience is the norm. When they opened these branches, one of the big things is that they saw an opportunity to invest training and their knowledge into people who were interested in starting in real estate or the mortgage industry. They created a program to bring in people of all backgrounds to be loan officers after educating, training, and passing the test."When somebody wants something bad enough, and you're willing to invest the time in them, they can be your best employee without the experience." If you are in the LBGTQ community and want to reach out, need support or advice, please reach out to Mitch and Frank. Such a fantastic episode with Frank and Mitch! Don't miss out on their story of having Covid and other advice they have for people wanting to enter into the mortgage or real estate industry.  Connect with Frank Castillo and Mitch Castillo:Team Castillo with Cross Country MortgageInstagramFacebookWebsiteEmail Ways to connect with us:Website Instagram @TheKAMProjectorg   @actionistalive   @whiskitwithflava YouTube - Whisk it with flAVA Special Thanks To:Rob Actis - For gifting The KAM Project BrandingDan Lipton - For composing KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast musicSara Mann - For KAMcastKIDS & KAMcast voiceovers Leah Bryant - Podcast Producer/Virtual Assistant Social Media Tags:@actionistalive@whiskitwithflava@thekamprojectorg@themortgageboys Clubhouse:@actionistaliveHashtags:#thekamproject#actionistalive#whiskitwithflava#teamcastillo
