Patriotism Is Not Exclusive - with Ian Wendt - EP 304

When building a brand, people often put their focus on the wrong areas and then wonder why the brand isn’t taking off. When we’re talking branding, especially apparel, people are usually buying into an idea or another person and what they stand for, and not necessarily just the products themselves. Building a message that you know other people need to hear is an essential first step in getting people to be interested in your brand. Find a community that will rally around that message, inspire them with your ideas, and they will want to buy what you create as their way of supporting your idea. This is the slow yet brilliant approach that led to the very successful launch of the apparel company Official Patriot Gear, owned by Ian Wendt. Ian Wendt is an expert in sales, an accomplished creative, speaker, and a marketing professional. Ian’s passion has always been about serving others by helping them to reach new levels of performance both in their professional and personal lives. With his successful history in communication sales, Ian turned his focus on launching his own brand and apparel company, Official Patriot Gear. Their message is simple: patriotism is not partisan or exclusive. He’s taking that message to the masses and drawing attention to some of the most controversial and polarizing subjects of today’s culture and society. At the age of 34, Ian has established himself as an influential leader and teacher. In this episode of the 365 Driven Podcast, Ian Wendt talks about the importance of always chasing fulfillment, focusing on adding value to others, embracing challenges, not being afraid to reinvent yourself, and what it means to be a Patriot. Ian credits a lot of his success to making the decision to stop caring what other people think about him. Although we hear this advice a lot, few people have actually put that into action. Releasing the fear of judgment or how others may perceive you will free you to do so much more and align with people that will resonate with your message. That is how you build an unstoppable brand.  Key highlights: Fulfillment should be constant  How to be successful: Find gaps and find a way to fill them Put yourself in challenging situations so you can grow from them Society’s two biggest problems: Apathy and entitlement  The 3 things that drive people: Money, power, and control About Official Patriot Gear: What is it and how did it start? Why building an identity around politics is dangerous How to build a powerful brand Putting your audience into perspective if you think you don’t have a big enough following to make a difference in the world For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode304

Be Authentic as F*ck - with Sun Yi - EP 302

You might already know about the importance of being authentic, but maybe you’re not exactly sure how to translate that over social media in order to attract your ideal customers. You don’t want to be so authentic and transparent that you don’t leave any mystery about you, and you also don’t want to share so much that you become uninteresting to listen to. There is definitely an art in owning who you are and what your unique talents are, and conveying that appropriately to your audience so that you stand out while showcasing your expertise. Sun Yi calls this the “goldilocks of personal branding.” Sun Yi is an entrepreneur, storyteller, and TEDx speaker. He is the founder of Night Owls, an award-winning digital agency in NYC. In 2022, he started Night Owl Nation, a community that practices storytelling together. Sun gained over 50k Instagram followers in only 6 months, and in this episode of the 365 Driven Podcast, he reveals his content strategy and the common mistakes he sees people making on social media, and what you should actually be doing instead. So many people think if they post consistently, that will be enough to grow their following, but they are missing a key component. It is called “social media” for a reason. The interactions are meant to be a 2-way street. No one likes when someone just takes without giving anything in return. Instead of “posting and ghosting” think about how you can use your knowledge and abilities to serve with authenticity, and the right clientele will take notice. Key highlights: Sun’s content strategy and how he got 50k followers in 6 months Repurposing and recycling content What is a carousel on Instagram? The 3 necessary pieces of great content Why Sun has a consistent theme and colors on his Instagram page Don’t “post and ghost” Nuances about social media that Sun didn’t realize before The problem with influencer mentality How to land high-caliber clients Where to start if you are new to social media Why really great content might not perform well Common storytelling mistakes The importance of being relatable For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode302

Sustaining Habits and Building Authority - with Chris Warnes - EP 299

Too often when people fail at something that they have been working hard toward, the default reaction is to give up or rebound hard in the opposite direction, but it doesn’t have to be so extreme. Or maybe the opposite is true and you reached a big milestone you have been aiming for, so you celebrate big and then fall off the wagon. When you fail at something or even reach your goal, that doesn’t have to be the end. Failure can be a great gift that teaches you very valuable lessons if you know how to pay attention. Success also teaches you a great deal, but don't lose sight of the habits that got you there. Sustainability and consistency are the keys. Chris Warnes is a great example of how to build and maintain a successful business and authority, and how to take failure as a lesson. Chris Warnes is a serial entrepreneur, independent watch dealer, business coach, life mentor, speaker, and author focused on self-awareness, purpose, spirituality, mindset, leadership, company culture, and the true meaning of entrepreneurship. After two tours in Iraq with the Army, Chris was awarded The Purple Heart and now lives, breathes, and teaches the warrior mindset. His companies operate from the culture and core values that he lives by and represents. His care for people, discipline, and accountability sets him apart from others. In over 15 years, Chris has built six companies, including online fitness coaching, a full-service gym, real estate investing, dealing high-end timepieces, Warrior Consulting, and most recently, a Non-Profit. Chris has recently also become two companies’ managing/equity partner for his leadership, expertise, and knowledge. In this episode of the 365 Driven Podcast, Chris shares what he learned from a near-death experience while serving in the military, and why we need to shift how we view failure and see it as an opportunity to learn and grow. The journey is more important than the finish line, and once you reach that finish line, don’t take it as an excuse to go back to old habits, but instead celebrate, and then get back to work. Chris also shares how he built his online presence and became an authority in the fitness industry, and now coaching space. People often think they don’t have the credibility or knowledge to be an authority in their space, but Chris and Tony offer a different perspective and share how you can get started creating content today.  Key highlights: What Chris learned about himself in combat after serving 2 tours in the military  Chris and Tony’s thoughts on 75 Hard Why you should see failure as a lesson How Chris pivoted his business to meet market demand How to create content that will build authority and an audience Chris’ words of advice for people that have a goal but are afraid to pursue it For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode299

Lamborghinis & Airplanes - with Steve Currington - EP 298

No matter what you do, there will always be people that have negative things to say, and that can increase as you become more successful. Instead of being the person you think other people want you to be, or copying someone else you see online, build your own personal brand by being yourself and the right people will follow.

Everyone wants to find their purpose and operate from that place, but what if we are chasing our purpose in the wrong way? Purpose is not something you have to achieve, it is what you are.

Reinvention Over Rehabilitation - with Angie Manson - EP 295

The definition of rehabilitation is to restore someone to their former condition, but a more helpful and empowering method is reinvention. We always want to be improving and gaining skills that make us better humans, and it is totally possible to completely reinvent ourselves into whatever version we want to be. Today’s guest has an incredible comeback story of going from facing prison time for a felony, to being a successful CEO of Elevate Addiction Services.  Angie Manson began drinking and using drugs at just 11 years old, was arrested and went to rehab at 16, and faced 10 years in prison at 21 years old. Due to a compassionate judge, Angie was sentenced to treatment instead. A couple of months in, she started working and giving back and realized her true purpose was to help others overcome the struggles she once faced. After completing 3-years of probation and working full-time in treatment, that same Judge erased all of Angie’s criminal record and gave her a completely clean slate. Angie used the opportunity to turn her life around and reinvent herself. Angie has now worked in alcohol and drug rehabilitation full-time for 28 years and empowers individuals to stay sober and reach their true potential with her unique and copyrighted method.  In this episode, Angie shares her story of what led to her addiction early in her life, and emphasizes the importance of parents having those tough, but very necessary conversations about drugs and alcohol with their children sooner rather than later. With the current opioid overdose crisis in our country, largely due to accidental Fentanyl ingestion, it has become even more important for parents to be aware of the hazards and prevention. Angie also dives into the topic of how to be an effective leader of an organization, personal branding, scaling, and using criticism to your benefit. Key highlights: Angie’s comeback story of being addicted to drugs and alcohol, facing prison time, and eventually completely reinventing herself as a successful CEO Angie’s advice to parents to look at clues that their kids may be getting into substance abuse What people need to know about the Fentanyl crisis  Why Angie’s approach to overcoming addiction works and changes lives How Angie grew her company from a small team to one of 100 team members currently  Why EQ matters more than IQ when it comes to running a company Qualities of a great leader Growing pains Angie saw as a business owner Angie’s advice to business owners in hiring team members Personal branding and owning your uniqueness  How to handle haters and critics and use criticism to your benefit For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode295

If there is a skill you want to learn or knowledge you want to acquire, the information is out there, whether that be through books, podcasts, or online.

Forged Through Adversity - with Marcus Aurelius Anderson - EP 290

Adversity is the catalyst or litmus test of why we do what we do because it makes us question whether we are doing things for the right reasons. We know that adversity and hardship make us better, but some people hope it doesn’t have to be that way because they want to take the easy or quick route to their goals. If you feel like you haven’t faced much adversity in your life, the hard truth is that chances are, you have been living in mediocrity and need to seek adversity or else you will continue to stay stuck. Marcus Aurelius Anderson viewed his adversity as a gift and used it to inspire and teach others how to use hardships to create a meaningful and fulfilled life. Marcus Aurelius Anderson is back on the 365 Driven podcast, and you can check out episode 23 with Marcus in the episode resources. Marcus is a proud veteran, author of “The Gift of Adversity”, Keynote Speaker, TEDx Speaker, and High-Performance Mindset Coach. He is the creator of the Acta Non Verba movement and host of the Acta Non Verba podcast. While preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury that left him paralyzed, and his life was turned upside down. In an instant, he went from preparing for war on the battlefield to a war within his own body and mind. After dying on the operating table twice, the surgeons saved his life but told him he’d never walk again. Having no other option, Marcus started doing some in-depth soul-searching, looking for the lesson to be learned from his injury. Once he started seeing his adversity as a gift instead of a curse, everything changed. In this episode, Marcus is real and honest about why people fail to move toward their goals and purpose in life. We are either moving closer to our goals, or moving further away, so it becomes essential to put ourselves in situations in which we are uncomfortable and lean into that feeling because that is where growth happens. Creating adversity can look like pushing yourself in the gym, or hiring a coach that will call you out on your excuses and push you to do what needs to be done to get the results you want.  Quote from the episode:  “Be careful that what you're doing right now to escape your adversity isn't creating more down the line, because it will be waiting for you.” - Marcus Aurelius Anderson  Key highlights: What keeps people stuck? The concept of aggressive patience The difference between stupidity and ignorance  How do we get people to break the cycle of thinking they need to just get to the finish line instead see that it needs to be an acceleration through the finish line?  How can we create adversity for ourselves? The importance of boundaries and saying “no” to what isn’t aligned with your goals Why you need to put yourself first above everyone else  The problem with the “must be nice” mentality Why you shouldn’t overshare on social media The 2 ways to deal with adversity: correctly or again For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode290

Build Unconventional Wealth - with Pejman Ghadimi - EP 289

In today’s world of social media and instant gratification, people are looking for shortcuts to wealth and want that influence and the ability to buy fancy cars. They see people on social media with flashy cars and expensive watches, but oftentimes, they are not thinking of what it took to get there. Maybe that person is just faking the influence and wealth as we have discussed in other episodes, or maybe they truly have built the wealth to get there, but it is probably a longer, more challenging path than people realize. Pejman Ghadimi is back on the 365 Driven podcast to demystify what it takes to get on the path to wealth, how that can be done by unconventional means, and since Tony and Pejman are both car guys, they also dive into a little about exotic cars. Pejman Ghadimi is a self-made entrepreneur, philosopher, author, and the creator of the wealth transfer methodology. Over the last 20 years, Pejman has built several businesses ranging from a one-of-a-kind investment firm that focuses on alternative asset management known as 1 OFF Investments, to a series of online education businesses including Secret Entourage, Exotic Car Hacks, and Watch Trading Academy. These platforms have forced people to rethink their understanding of business, luxury assets, and money management. Pejman's companies have grossed well over $420,000,000.00 in combined revenue. Pejman is an example of how resourcefulness and self-education are the two most powerful keys to success. He was also featured on Netflix’s Fastest Car Season 2. In this episode, Pejman explains that having a path to wealth comes from having a path as a human and acquiring skills along the way no matter what types of jobs you start out in. Very successful people rarely share about their first job and the 10-20 years of struggling and lessons that it took to get them to where they are because oftentimes people don’t want to hear about that. It’s a very important piece of the journey that people need to realize and research for themselves. Listening and talking to people that have what you want can help shortcut the learning, but not the result, so starting to build that wealth now is going to be key.  Key highlights: For someone that thinks that they do not have a path to wealth, how do they start?  People don’t understand the path to success and they think it’s not possible due to having a fixed mindset around it Acquiring skills and knowledge to get to that next level What do you need to know to buy an exotic car? What do you need to assess? As a society, we focus on the wrong things: fear and negativity Greatness will always be in demand because it is in short supply If you find someone that will share how they got there, pay attention to what they say Real success is having a choice and living life through your own value system For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode289

Integrity Vs Influence - with Tony Whatley - EP 287

Too many people are trading integrity for influence and trying to gain fake followers and fake notoriety to appear as though they are influential, but if it’s not real, what is the point? Do those fake followers and fake blue check marks matter if they aren’t actually providing real value to the world? Fake PR might work to fool people into thinking those fake influencers are more wealthy and successful than they are, but if that means sacrificing integrity to get there, those tactics are going to have long-term effects, and keeping up the fakeness will become unsustainable.  Our world is craving authenticity, and eventually, the fakes will be revealed. True influence is earned by making an impact and consistently providing value to others. Too many people want to skip the impact part, but that is what matters. It’s about the long game when it comes to influence, and if someone can’t provide value, they don’t deserve the influence. Let’s make 2023 the year of authenticity and the year we stop supporting the fakers. So how do you spot the fakes and frauds in the influence space? Tune in to find out the telltale signs of a fake influencer.  Key highlights: Stop trading integrity for influence  Why people do fake PR What are things people can fake in the influencer space?  What are things you can’t fake?  How to spot fakes and frauds in the influencer space How to know someone is real and authentic  Tony explains “Pay to Play” type of events Avoid groups that teach you fake stuff and start supporting real and authentic people For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode287

Your Silence is Killing You - with Scott Harvey - EP 286

We’re living in a “cancel culture” society where we’re so afraid of saying the wrong thing, that we decide to say nothing. But what if our silence is more dangerous and damaging than expressing what we really think? We don’t all have to have the same opinions and agree on every topic, but it’s important that we have the opportunity to express differing opinions and learn from each other. It’s also important to listen to people that have different views than us. If we silence opposing opinions then we are not challenged and are no longer growing and getting better. This just creates an echo chamber that won’t give us an opportunity to really think about how things can be improved. Today’s guest explains why calling attention to the elephant in the room is important. Scott Harvey spent 20 years as a hostage negotiator and public information officer and is not afraid to have difficult conversations. As a professional speaker and communication coach, he speaks to tens of thousands of people each year teaching them the tactics they need to speak with confidence and build their influence. Scott believes that in our "cancel culture" world, our silence is killing us because our reputation and our organizations suffer. Luckily, we can learn communication skills and how to effectively have hard and necessary conversations. In this episode, Scott explains that we can’t influence real change and have a voice if we are too worried to speak up. Having the fear of saying the wrong thing is a good thing because of course we don’t intend to hurt anyone, but it's important to note that it is easier to defend your action than your inaction. People might mistake your silence for apathy, so just be real because our world is desperate for authenticity. Key highlights: Why Scott retired from the police world and stepped into the speaking world Scott's thoughts on cancel culture The danger in silencing opposing opinions How to influence real change, and it isn't through social media Why you should challenge yourself to listen to both sides and form your own opinion Scott's opinion on why people stay silent  Take time to listen to critics because they might have something that makes you better Why people unfollowing you and unsubscribing is actually a good thing How to approach difficult conversations Tips for building rapport and trust with your audience For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode286

School Teacher to Millionaire CEO - with Lisa Collum - EP 283

Entrepreneurship doesn’t always look like what we see in movies or on social media. You don’t need a big fancy office, expensive equipment, and a big team of people to be successful. You need the willingness to learn and change directions if needed. That might mean failing a few times and feeling like you have no idea what you are doing. Successful entrepreneurs know that finding success lies in figuring things out as you go, asking for help when needed, and knowing when it is time to pivot. Today’s guest is a former teacher who took $100 and turned it into a multi-million dollar company without any business experience, no business degree, and learned everything along the way.  Lisa Collum is the founder of a curriculum company, Top Score Writing, Inc. While teaching at a Title I school, Lisa developed an innovative step-by-step program proven to dramatically increase writing scores on standardized assessments. The results of her curriculum attracted a lot of attention, and she was even investigated by the board of education twice because they didn't believe the results she got were possible. School officials were calling her wanting to know her secrets, and from there, her company was born and is now used nationwide. As a busy entrepreneur and mother of four, Lisa is also the owner of a nonprofit, Coastal Middle and High School, which is a part of her mission to help all children succeed. Lisa’s message in this episode is to go for it without waiting to have the “perfect" plan otherwise, you'll never start. Figure it out as you go, fail a few times, and keep moving. If you can identify a problem that others don’t know they have, and be the person committed to finding the solution, you will be successful. So many people see an opportunity for success but talk themselves out of it thinking it will be too hard or that they don’t have the resources. The key is to know that you may not know all the answers now, but you can figure out where to find them. Another huge part of the equation is finding what you are passionate about, and committing to helping people in that area. If you are not in your business for the right reasons, you will burn out and be unfulfilled. Tune in to hear more of Lisa’s inspiring story of going from teacher to CEO.  Key highlights: Lisa’s story of growing up and knowing she wanted to be a teacher ever since she could remember  How Lisa took her first class of students from a pass rate of 38% to 95% on the state writing test, and then to 100% in the years after  Leaving her teaching job and being contacted by schools to sell her writing curriculum  How one $75 binder sold turned into multiple binders and is now a nationwide company Tony shares how he stumbled his way into entrepreneurship as well  You don’t need to start with a big team - go slow and build as you grow The struggle between humility and owning your success Why we should stop the idea that we need to be discrete about money Building a business sometimes means identifying a problem that people don't even know they have  Lisa’s story of answering the phone pretending to be different people in the beginning stages of her company Lisa’s advice to people just building a business  The most successful people don't think about “How am I going to do that?” They ask, “Who do I know that can do this?”  When is it time to hire help in your company and how do you let go of control? The importance of having a passion for whatever you are doing in your business For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode283

Using PR To Amplify Authority - with Jeremy Ryan Slate - EP 282

A lot of people confuse the difference between PR and marketing, but the purpose of PR is to get people to have a certain idea and feeling about you. This is where you build your “know, like, and trust” factor. Respect will not just be handed to you, and just because you put content out, does not mean the customers will come. You have to make sure you are consistently offering value and working on building that relationship with your audience to the point that they view you as an authority figure in your niche. Podcasts are a great way to do this, but people focus on the wrong things when they get started. Today’s guest is here to break it all down by explaining the key differences between PR and marketing, and where to put your efforts so that you build trust, leading to getting more people through your sales door. Jeremy Ryan Slate is back on the 365 Driven Podcast for a third time to share his tips to stop wasting energy on the wrong metrics in your PR efforts. Jeremy is the founder of the "Create Your Own Life" Podcast, which studies the highest performers in the world. He is a former champion powerlifter turned new media entrepreneur, and he specializes in using podcasting and new media to create trust and opinion leader status. Jeremy was named the #1 Podcast to Listen to by INC Magazine in 2019, as well as being named a Top Influencer by Forbes. After his success in podcasting, Jeremy and his wife Brielle Slate founded "Command Your Brand" to help entrepreneurs get their message out by appearing as guests on podcasts. In this episode, Jeremy and Tony discuss the unique opportunities that podcasting presents due to there being no gatekeeper. This means that anyone that wants to get their message out, can do so with podcasting, but sadly the number of podcasts that die out due to “pod fade” is very high. What causes this? Jeremy says that it is due to people putting too much focus on the wrong metrics instead of making sure they have a solid business foundation, and then using their podcast as a PR vehicle that brings people in with the knowledge and value they have to offer. Just starting a podcast won’t mean the audience will come, so tune in to learn how you can set yourself up as an authority in your space and avoid these common mistakes. Key highlights: Why Jeremy believes that traditional media is dead and podcasting is now the media What is “pod fade” and why does it happen? What is the difference between PR and marketing? Should you focus on download numbers when you first launch a podcast? Common mistakes people make when starting a podcast for their business Why Jeremy is particular about the type of clients he works with What NOT to do as a podcast guest Why over-pitching yourself and your offer is bad PR What Jeremy would say to someone that wants to get their message out there How to get people to remember you and your message  How to respectfully disagree with people online Jeremy and Tony’s thoughts on the divisiveness happening right now, and how to spot the BS For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode282

The Truth About Network Marketing - with Toni Vanschoyck - EP 281

There are a lot of opinions about network marketing, and with that, come many skeptics. You might have heard this business model called a “pyramid scheme”, which has the connotation that only the people at the top are gaining at the expense of others, and that is it difficult to make a lot of money, but done right, it can change lives. Network marketing has gotten a bad stigma over the years, but today’s guest is on a mission to change the perception of this industry and show others the great things that it can do for people.  Toni Vanschoyck has been working with start-up network marketing companies for over 20 years after owning 2 successful traditional businesses that she started after being burnt out from her corporate job.

Fear is Lying to You - with Setema Gali - EP 280

Fear often keeps people from going after what they really want in life and keeps them complacent in a job or position in which they are not utilizing their full potential. This is because we’re taught to lie and say the “right” thing instead of what we actually want and what’s real in our hearts. This leads to people living an average life due to fear of looking dumb to others, having people laugh at their goals, and because of fear of failure. Successful people know that failure is not something to avoid or be fearful of. Failure is the path to greatness. Important lessons lie in failure, so don’t let your fear hold you back and lie to you about what you actually want in life. This episode is packed with lessons, wisdom, and a success story that was built from pushing fear aside and putting in the necessary hard work to be great. Setema Gali is a former NFL player for the New England Patriots and won the Super Bowl in 2002. Setema is honest about the extreme dedication it took to get him there, his transition out of football and into being a mortgage broker, and the adversity he faced after the 2008 market crash. From being a successful professional football player to losing it all and selling his Super Bowl ring, Setema shares what he learned as he reinvented himself and came back stronger and more grateful than ever. Now he helps others realize their potential, and he speaks on stages breaking down old barriers, weak stories, and mediocre results. Through his coaching programs, live immersion events, digital trainings, and daily podcast, Setema has changed the lives of thousands of people, helping them set their dreams high and their commitment higher. Setema believes that having the ability to have calm energy about you is a superpower, and in today’s world with so many distractions pulling us in different directions and the polarity that we are exposed to on a daily basis, learning to control our emotions and being aware of our energy, is a very important skill. You don’t want to miss Setema’s comeback story and the incredible insight he shares in this episode.  Key highlights: Setema’s background and childhood growing up as an uncoordinated child that didn’t even like football at first What sports taught Setema at an early age What Tony learned from sports growing up Why do people have a fear of going after their goals? Emotional control is a strength and high performers usually have their emotions in check Being aware of the energy you give off You should be the same person online that you are in person Being real in a world of filters and fake influencers  Tony’s advice for hiring or promoting someone People undervalue time nowadays - don't fall for get-rich-quick schemes - time is not something you can shortcut People overestimate what they can do in one year, and underestimate what they can do in 10 years What post-NFL looked like for Setema including being depressed and losing everything How Setema reinvented himself by joining a company, getting into sales, and eventually following his calling to help others reach their goals For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode280

Bold Moves and Words - with Zachary Babcock - EP 278

Entrepreneurship involves a great deal of risk, yet so many people are too afraid to take a risk that could change their life significantly for the better. When we remove risk, we also remove the reward. With risk removal, there is a cost and it is usually the reduction of the ROI you will get from taking a leap toward your vision and greater purpose. Zachary Babcock understands the gain that happens when you put yourself out there, commit to personal development, but stay true to your value and do the right thing by others. Zach is back on the 365 Driven podcast for the third time for a fun and candid conversation with Tony about why hustle culture is outdated, why revenue doesn’t matter, and why critical thinkers are hard to come by nowadays. Both Zach and Tony think back to when they began their personal development journeys and the lessons they learned getting to where they are now. Both of them have made tremendous strides in improving how to communicate with others and get their message out to the world. Zach served 5 years in prison before building his brand, and Tony went from being terrified of public speaking, to now being an award-winning speaker, delivering his message on stages all over the world.  Showing up consistently, letting go of what other people might think, and following your gut, are key to reaching your potential. Zach shares the habits that he focuses on each and every day that led to him being able to help people build a celebrity brand and explosive business with his top-rated podcast, Underdog Empowerment. Key highlights: Zach’s background of rehab, trauma, and prison and how he turned his life around by putting in the work every day Tony’s vision for the 365 Driven brand Too many people are not focusing on the long game and building something meaningful Focus on serving people and helping people and success and money will follow Purpose is fluid and changes with age Why time feels like it goes faster as we get older Why critical thinking is becoming rare What does it mean to be a thought leader? What Zach and Tony have learned from podcasting How to be a better storyteller Tony’s story about being terrified of public speaking and how he overcame it Is your purpose strong enough to not care about haters and people that criticize?  Consistency over time: Show up consistently and get the results that come with that For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode278

Find Your Freedom - with Tony Whatley - EP 277

Are you living in freedom? Financial freedom, time freedom, location freedom, and mental freedom are goals that we should be striving for, but what does that look like? Tony broke each of these down in his speech at the Cash Profit Live event hosted by Tyler McBroom in West Palm Beach, FL on November 9, 2022. Financial freedom isn’t just about how much money you make, but more about the ability to control what comes in and knowing how to acquire more if that is what you desire. It is not relying on a job in which we have no control over how much we make but instead creating an income for ourselves that is limitless. While it is true that money won’t buy happiness or fulfillment, it can give you more of your time. Time is valuable. We are only given one life and we get to decide how we spend it. We can’t manage time, but we can learn to manage our tasks. Tony shares his tips to guard your time without being overwhelmed with a bunch of to-do lists. Learn to prioritize the tasks that will move the needle forward not only in your work but also in your personal life. Making time for what is important to you outside of your work, is also key. Location freedom means being able to travel and work when and where suits your life best. Maybe you are tired of commuting and spending a large amount of your time in an office and not having the time to take vacations when you want. Entrepreneurship can allow the freedom to take time away when you want, and choose your work location.  Mental freedom comes after realizing that we are not put on this Earth to please everyone. Tony shares his near-death experience and the new perspective on life that he was able to walk away with. Mental freedom is about not requiring anyone else’s approval, knowing your life's purpose, and going after it despite any fears. Fear and confidence are both imaginary, and you decide which one you want to live with. Key highlights: Put passion and purpose before profit and provide value to as many people as possible Do the right thing not the easy thing ABC: Action, belief, consistency - in that order Tony‘s advice to guard time for things that are important without getting overwhelmed with everything  What it means to be a thought leader Tony’s near-death experience and what he learned from it Put your purpose above your fears because our time is too valuable to waste For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode277

Selling With Integrity - with Shawn French - EP 273

For many of us growing up, it was instilled in us to watch out for salespeople because of the stigma around them that all they want to do is get your money and they don’t actually care about what you want. It is often hard to undo these ideas that were passed down to us as children, but the truth is that real salespeople are not sleazy or just trying to make a sale. A good salesperson knows how to listen to what their customer needs, and can make suggestions based on what is best for the customer and not the salesperson. In this episode, Shawn French shares massive value with tips on how to sell with integrity. Shawn French is an author and sales performance coach that has had a high level of success in the corporate sales environment. Throughout his career, he has discovered the main driver in his performance over the years. He does what he needs to do on a consistent basis, whereas others give up and go home when things get hard. Shawn's mission is to educate other sales professionals and sales organizations that their habits and intentional activity are paramount in their sales success. Shawn went from broke to high 6-figures in 6 months and now he's on a mission to help others create the same results. People fail to realize that our entire life is sales and we are constantly selling ourselves whether we realize it or not. Shawn addresses the common objections that salespeople usually get from potential customers, and how to counteract them without being pushy or overwhelming the other person. He says that “no” should not be feared. Not putting yourself out there enough is what you should fear. Don’t be afraid of objections, but instead learn to view them as buying signals and be a great enough active listener that you can counteract their struggles and become someone they can trust to solve their problems.  Key highlights: Why is there a stigma or icky feeling around sales? People fail to realize that our entire life is selling How to handle situations where you are not sure if you can meet their needs Strong characteristics for someone to be in sales If you focus on the activity and not the goal, you will reach success faster How many touches are needed to make a sale?

When Social Media is Unsafe - with Kim Karr - EP 269

With the prevalence of cyber bullying and the alarming rate of suicide, especially in young teenagers, it is important that we all become more aware of the detrimental effects of social media. Although bullying has been an issue for all generations, the youth of today are dealing with a different type of bullying that can feel almost impossible to escape from. Avoiding where the bully might hang out, or running to the safety of your home doesn’t work anymore because the bullies can be found all over the devices so many of us are attached to. In this episode, Tony talks to Kim Karr about the very important work she is doing to combat cyber bullying and educating others on how to be a “digital first responder.” Kim Karr is a co-founder of the non-profit called #ICANHELP where she shows students and adults how to use Digital4Good. #ICANHELP is an effective, outcome-based program, and has received recognition from Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees and major tech companies like Google, Twitter + Facebook. #ICANHELP celebrates youth innovation, empowers digital changemakers and promotes digital safety. Kim has presented the #ICANHELP program to over 470,000 students, has impacted 12.5 million, and has been instrumental in taking down a thousand negative social media sites. Kim shares why she started her non-profit after 13 years of teaching and why it is so important for everyone to learn how to use social media for good and uplifting others, instead of tearing each other down. So many people don’t know how to respectfully disagree with others or even filter the type of content they are taking in every day. Kim also shares how to talk to youth about using social media in a safer and more productive manner. Key highlights: How Kim got involved in her mission of teaching others how to use social media appropriately We need to focus on people first and realize their behavior can be an indication of something being wrong The shift that is happening of people wanting realness online The stats of cyberbullying and how depression and anxiety have increased dramatically during COVID 50% of kids are addicted to a device and ADHD is rising Suicide has increased 200% for 10-14-year-olds in recent years We’re not in a mental health crisis, we’re in a mental management crisis Tony’s experience with a bully growing up How to be a digital-first responder What should parents look for to keep their kids safe? We all need to learn how to manage our social media use Freedom of speech shouldn't apply to hurting other people for no reason How Tony forms his opinions based on research and not a knee-jerk reaction Kim’s thoughts on “cancel culture” The algorithm is real - people just see what they want to see and get brainwashed How Tony identifies in politics Polarizing content gets attention and people fall into the trap - you have to be careful with what you consume Not controlling your emotions is a sign of weakness What Kim’s nonprofit helps with Kim’s “Digital For Good” event and how you can get involved to get visibility for your brand For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode269

Odd People and Awareness - with Kyree Oliver - EP 267

We have all heard the advice, “fake it until you make it”, but there are issues with this mentality because it comes off unauthentic, which in turn makes it difficult for you to get respect. Making genuine connections, building rapport, and being self-aware, is going to take you much further toward your goals. In this episode, Kyree Oliver emphasizes the importance of being authentic in a world full of people being fake. Kyree Oliver is a former Division-1 football player and current digital marketer/men's coach.

Joan Ball is an associate professor in the Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University in New York City and the founder of WOMB Service Design Lab, an action research consultancy where she works with individuals, teams, and organizations to help people learn to thrive in uncertain times. Joan works with leaders of all experience levels and helps them to navigate and thrive through times of change and embrace the idea of pausing and inquiring. Disruptions and uncertainty happen to everyone, but learning to pivot around or push through is not always the best option. Joan is passionate about changing how we view uncharted territory and see it as a great opportunity to inquire about our true goals and wishes, and explore new routes that will set us on the path to living our own version of a fulfilled life. So many of us get caught up in a game of comparison and think that there is only one path to success, and if we don’t follow that path, we have failed. In this episode, Joan invites you to spend more time pausing and doing the work to make sure your identity and goals are in alignment. Her work lives in the space between ambition, impact, and well-being at a time when we are forced to reimagine what it means to live meaningful and successful lives in a rapidly changing world.  Key highlights: Introduction to Joan and how she got to where she is now Why do we pursue other people’s dreams? Joan explains the idea of time boxed experiments and active waiting Navigating no man’s land We all have the capacity to persevere or panic, so how do we amplify the perseverance part?

Are You Living in Freedom? - EP252

Tony Whatley delivered this closing speech about Freedom at the 365 Driven "Advance 4" event on May 21, 2022, in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Tony speaks about 3 types of freedom we should all be striving for: financial freedom, time freedom, and mental freedom. Financial freedom isn't just about the numbers, but more so about the freedom to choose where your money is coming from and have the ability to make decisions that will bring in more money if that is what you want. It’s not being tied to a company or job where you don’t have control of the money you can acquire.  The next is time freedom. Tony talks about how we have been sold an idea that we have to hustle all the time in order to be successful. In reality, we should be intentionally delegating tasks to others in order to free up time for things that we enjoy. This is the key to scaling a business while getting your time back. Focus on your strengths and get help with everything else. The last freedom is mental freedom. Tony shares about his near death experience and the perspective on life he gained from going through that. The truth that we all have to face is that we will die someday. Wasting time and energy on what other people are going to think, or fearing judgment is a waste of time and holds us back from taking action, making a real impact, and creating a life we are truly proud of.  Key highlights: How Tony started his first company by teaching himself how to build websites Being more focused on giving than receiving Selling Tony’s first company at age 34 Developing money maturity Providing value to others You don't have to work 24/7 How to scale your business while getting your time back Getting rid of negative or toxic people How Tony’s parents instilled discipline in him Being fired from his corporate job His near-death experience and what he took away from that Action, belief, consistency- take the action before you have the belief How Tony got better at public speaking Losing the fear of judgment Quote from the episode: “Regret is avoidable, but only with action.” For more information about this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode252

How to Get Superhuman Confidence - with Ed Mylett - EP251

Ed Mylett is back on the 365 Driven podcast, and you already know this will be an episode packed with lessons and advice from Ed that you are going to want to take notes on. Ed is an incredibly successful businessman, creator of the Arete Syndicate, and one of Tony’s mentors. Since being on the podcast in April 2020, Ed has gone through the loss of his dad and spent the last year writing his upcoming book, The Power of One More, which is a very in-depth guide full of Ed’s powerful strategies and insight that will guide you to a happier and more successful life. In this episode, Ed takes us through some life changing lessons that are included in his book that will benefit anyone, no matter what stage you are in your life. Tony and Ed’s conversation brings out a side of Ed that no one has asked about before. Ed exposes how our society is programmed to avoid pain, which is keeping everyone stuck and repeating the history of those before us. You are sure to hear a perspective from Ed that other people don’t talk about because it is hard to hear, but he doesn’t shy away from the truth bombs that are guaranteed to motivate you to take action in making the changes necessary to reach the potential you didn’t think was possible. Key highlights: Introduction to Ed and what he has been up to the past year Dealing with the recent loss of his father The concept of “Beginning with the end in mind” from Think and Grow Rich The concept of “memento mori” We all have visions on our life, the issue is depth perception, you think its further away than it is You are one decision away, one meeting, one relationship, one thought, one book, one podcast away from a different life Most people don't meet their highest self because they are not willing to go through the pain of getting there How Ed developed his listening skills as a child Truth bomb that’s hard to hear: “The most insidious form of child neglect is a parent not pursuing their ultimate potential. You’re instilling in that child that it's okay to settle.” Most lessons our kids learn are caught not taught We are programed to avoid pain and not do hard things Successful people pursue the inconvenient thing How our parents instill their limitations in us Why Ed is different from other people on social media A different view of Ed: What his dogs mean to him How to balance being successful and maintaining your family/parenting Most people are operating out of their memory and history, but happy people operate out of their imagination and dreams How to get your kids to be dreamers and have high confidence Surround yourself with people that say “imagine when” not “remember when” Your identity is the thermostat setting of your life How to train your RAS (reticular activating system) Anger is the manifestation of fear The importance of finding emotional control in stressful situation: equanimity How his book will apply to everyone How to get access to Ed’s virtual event for free Quotes from the episode: “It's not the events of our lives that define us, it's the meaning we attach to it.” “On the other side of temporary pain, you get introduced to your other self.” “What if the highest potential exists in something we haven't even started yet?” “Success is where your life matches the blueprint you have for it. You come up with a blueprint for your life and you get it” For more information about this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode251
