In this episode, I am joined by a guest whose teachings and strategies impact the lives of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people all around the world. We are chatting with entrepreneur, best-selling author, keynote speaker, podcast superstar, and overall inspiration, Hal Elrod.
I had the opportunity to meet Hal at one of his live events, the Quantum Leap Mastermind, last year and was blown away by his story and his presence within the room. 
For those of you who haven't heard of Hal, he is the author of one of the bestselling books on Amazon, The Miracle Morning—which has been translated into 27 languages, has over 2,000 five-star Amazon reviews and is practiced daily by over 500,000 people in more than 70 countries.
When Hal was 20, he actually died in a head-on car crash with a drunk driver, where his heart stopped for 6 full minutes. But that sure as heck didn't stop him.
Fast forward a few years and Hal is now the host of the highly acclaimed Achieve Your Goals podcast, creator of the Best Year Ever Blueprint (Live Event) and bestselling author of ten books in The Miracle Morning book series.
Then, in November of 2016, hardship struck again when Hal's kidneys, lungs, and heart nearly failed, which led to his being diagnosed with a very rare, very aggressive form of leukemia. One year later, after the hardest year of his life, I am thrilled to say that Hal is now cancer free and more inspiring than ever!
In this episode, Hal shares how we can master our emotions to live extraordinarily happy and successful lives.

Stephan Harman is the Co-Founder of FUSIAN, a fast-casual restaurant for sushi rolls and bowls with 10 locations in Ohio, and growing. Stephan founded FUSIAN back in 2010 in his early 20's, at a time in life when most of us are just starting to realize college is over and the real world is hard.
I'm personally very excited for this episode because before I ever knew who Stephan was or that we had some mutual connections, I knew FUSIAN as this amazing sushi stop that I would frequent anytime I was driving through Columbus or Cincinnati. 
Aside from great food, they have developed a solid brand with a foundation in sustainability, culture and customer experience.

Erik Seversen is a writer, speaker, adventurer, educator, and entrepreneur who refuses to let others tell him what he can or cannot do.
This way of thinking stems back to when he was rejected from his dream school UCLA, and turned that setback into a challenge. He excelled in community college and got into UCLA two years later, where he graduated near the top of his class. And that's just the very tip of the spear with Erik.
If you take a look at his resume of life experiences, you'd hardly believe that one person could accomplish everything that he's done. To list a few of these experiences, Erik has:
  • traveled to over 80 countries
  • been to 49 of the 50 states
  • ridden a motorcycle on 6 continents and crossed the USA on one twice
  • had a machine gun stuck in his mouth in Nigeria
  • summited the tallest mountains of 8 countries and 5 states
  • lived with a remote Indian tribe deep in the Amazon
  • helped a company grow from $7M to over $100,000,000 in ten years as VP of International Business Development
  • written a book, ORDINARY TO EXTRAORDINARY: An Average Person’s Adventurous Search For Meaning, which comes out in March 2018
Erik's journey personifies the idea of living life with intention.
He uses entrepreneurial success formulas and motivational materials in business, but he’s also pioneering their use in the field of education.

There's a lot of advice out there on how to build a successful start-up and business. But much of that advice is coming from individuals who are hardly qualified to give it.
That's why I talked to Warren Hogarth. Few are more qualified to share the secrets of building a successful business.
First off, Warren is the Co-Founder and CEO of a successful app called Empower, which helps entrepreneurs and side hustlers stay on top of their finances. Empower was voted one of the best 25 apps of 2017 by Time Magazine.

At Sequoia, Warren was the lead investor and board member helping many entrepreneurs build companies from zero to over $1 billion. During his time at Sequoia, they invested in companies like Square, WhatsApp, Stripe, and AirBnB.
Prior to any of Warren's success in business, he moved to the US from Australia in 2004 with a degree in chemical engineering. 
(Didn't see that one coming, did you?)
He faced many challenges navigating the US financial system but didn't waste any time on his journey towards success.
In this episode, Warren shares:
  • How he became a venture capitalist with a degree in Chemical Engineering
  • How he networked his way into one of the leading VC firms
  • What venture capitalists look for in a successful business
  • How he shifted gears to launch a top 25 app

Scott Alan Turner is the Financial Rock Star, who went from a “money moron” at age 22 to self-made millionaire by age 35. Scott now spends his time helping people get out of debt faster, save more money, and retire rich. He is the radio and podcast host of the Scott Alan Turner Show and best-selling author of 99 Minute Millionaire.
In today's episode, Scott shares how he dug himself out of the financial hole and created enough wealth to retire at age 35.  We explore how he overcame every hurdle and mistake along the way, such as when he lost $40,000 when he first started investing.  Scott also shares how aspiring entrepreneurs should be thinking about their personal finances based on his own experience of starting a successful business in his 20's.
My biggest takeaway is that there are a lot of people giving financial advice out there, but it's not always good advice.  Be careful who you listen to and make sure to do your own research before going all-in on any investment or wealth-building strategy.
I hope you find this episode helpful and it can serve as a tool to help you get your finances right.

What do you think of when you hear the word "Networking"?  Maybe some things come to mind such as coffee dates, email introductions, phone calls or even a horribly awkward happy hour event where you're showered with business cards.  But I'm guessing that you don't hear "networking" and think of Facebook groups, Instagram Direct Messaging, and paid mastermind groups.  That's where Travis Chappell comes in.
Travis is the host of the Build Your Network Podcast, where he connects with and interviews some of the top networkers of our time.  He is able to blend tried and true relationship building techniques with the tools that social media brings to our fingertips.  Travis shares the strategies that he used to connect with people like John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire.
