#UnderdogBites: How to Build a Brand (Not Just a Business)

Many confuse the difference between a business and a brand A business is your foundation, your product and the services you offer. It’s what your business model is made for. Before you create a brand, you need a business as the starting point!  A brand is an emotional connection to that business! It’s the personality behind the business that you are promoting to your audience to get them intrigued in what you are selling or offering. DO NOT RUSH YOUR BRANDING! Building a brand also does NOT happen overnight. This takes TIME! The more your business grows and evolves, you’ll form a much clearer vision of your brand’s voice and identity, that will better resonate with not just your product/service but your audience as well.      Links:    Follow True Underdog on IG: www.instagram.com/true_underdog Reach out to Jayson directly at [email protected] Follow Jayson on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jayson-waller-/ Follow Jayson on Instagram: www.instagram.com/jaysonwallerbam Check

#UnderdogBites: Cows vs Buffalos with Jayson Waller

Today on the show Jayson is talking with John LeBlanc about the difference between cows and buffalo.

You can take these ideals and apply them to business. By making decisions quickly and not running from them, or procrastinating, you are allowing yourself the opportunity to move past that decision and on to the next thing.

#70: Surviving and Healing with Elizabeth Frazier

Today on the show Jayson is talking with Elizabeth Frazier, an activist, entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and survivor of sex trafficking. As early as 4 years old, she remembers being groomed by her parents. Her earliest memory is her mother pulling up to a motel and instructing her on which door to knock on and what acts she’d been engaged in.  She lived in a wealthy neighborhood, so being led into this lifestyle by her parents wasn’t one to make ends meet but to exploit their own children. At about 11 to 12 years old, she became aware of what she was being forced into and didn’t feel safe or content in her home.  She has forgiven her family for how she was treated but has not forgotten. She’s persistent in sharing her story in the hopes to shed light on trafficking and provide a voice to those who may still be in that situation.  Founder of Hero Bands, an online shop that sells metal bands and bracelets to strengthen survivors of abuse   Links:    Follow True Underdog on IG: www.i

Today on the show Jayson is joined by co-host, John LeBlanc, talking about the first few chapters of Jayson’s book, and how to create your own map in life by keeping a few simple ideas in mind. Jayson talks about how you can’t always count on family to be there for you, he had to set boundaries with his parents when Jayson and his wife first had children. The path to success can be difficult when you allow fear to prevent you from getting there, you have to be able to move past your anxieties, you need to be in control, and you need to practice patience. You get to live on your own terms, as long as you put in the work, and when you understand you always have a choice, you then can go all in.

#UnderdogBites: F*ck What They Think

Today on the show Jayson is talking about the three categories of people, and why the last two are toxic to be around. You have the people that are excited for you and stick around as your supporters, these are the ones you need to keep around and have a relationship with.  The second category, being the people who are intimidated by  and don’t want to speak up or talk about you, these people are scared, they can’t achieve what you have, and they don’t like it. The third category are the haters, the ones who are so jealous of your success that they need to talk crap about you behind your back. These people can fuel you if you have the right perspective, let their jealousies and hatred motivate you to keep going. We’ve all been in these categories, it’s up to you to stay in the first category and keep the people around you that are going to lift you up.   Links:    Follow True Underdog on IG: www.instagram.com/true_underdog Reach out to Jayson directly at [email protected] Follow

Scribe has 3 questions you need to answer to create a great book: ‘What do you want?’, ‘Who are you trying to serve?’, and ‘What do you have to say that matters to those people?’. Authenticity is hard to come by, and when employees, investors, or co-workers see that you are being honest and forward with them, that incurs a lot of respect.

#UnderdogBites: Bend Don't Break

Today on the show Jayson talks about being able to bend, but not break. To be able to take the hits with the wins. He discusses how making mistakes will teach you so much more than any of your successes will. You have a 100% survival rate on this Earth, you have gotten through every trouble you’ve ever had, you’re here! Rather than wallowing in the failures and mistakes that you’ve made, focus on getting yourself better, start working out, start learning something new, keep your mind busy and challenge yourself every single day! You will work yourself out of a rut in no time. There are lions and there are sheep, the lions don’t have to be entrepreneurs, or millionaires, or thought leaders. It’s someone who loves what they do and has passion every day. Those that are great, are no different than the average person, it’s just the mindset that they have in the morning, and when they go to sleep. Always grind, always stay positive, and strive to inspire yourself and the people around you.

#UnderdogBites: Stop Overthinking, Start Problem Solving with Jayson Waller

Today on the show John LeBlanc is back and interviews Jayson about why you need to stop overthinking your problems, and start quickly making decisions, to solve them! Jayson talks about how he hates the phrase “what if” and how it means that you are looking backwards, when you should be trying to fix the problems that are at hand right now. It’s important to think of yourself last in business decisions, first think about how this will affect your brand and your team, then about how it will affect you. When making important decisions, Jayson thinks about how it will impact right now, tomorrow and 6 months from now. Thinking any further down the road than that will allow you to start overthinking the problem at hand. Follow the facts, make an informed decision, but ultimately following your gut will help you make quick decisions. Don’t try to make the right decisions, take action and move forward from there!   Links:    Follow True Underdog on IG: www.instagram.com/true_underdog Reach ou

#UnderdogBites: Depression is Real

Today Jayson talks about depression and how to deal with it. The fact is, it’s different for everyone, it manifests differently and everyone deals with it differently, but appreciating what’s around you, leaving the past in the past, and taking it one step at a time, WILL help you get past whatever you are dealing with. If you are breathing, if you’re alive today, you are batting 100% in terms of getting over your depression! If there are negative people in your life, get rid of them, if there is negativity on the TV, quit watching it. Cut what you can, it’s you versus the world, and the world isn’t going to play fair. Start working out, start praying, start therapy, whatever you have to do to become a better person, DO IT!   Links:    Follow True Underdog on IG: www.instagram.com/true_underdog Reach out to Jayson directly at [email protected] Follow Jayson on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jayson-waller-/ Follow Jayson on Instagram: www.instagram.com/jaysonwallerbam Check

#Roundtable: Get Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable with Jeff Fratarcangeli, Jeff Sloan, and Brian Elias

Many businesses and entrepreneurs fail when starting up because they don’t have a proper plan in place. Not just something to get you started, but a plan for the next 8 or 9 years down the road. Jayson, Jeff, Bryan and Jeff talk about looking ahead, and creating an action plan on how to get there, performing that plan every day. The business world moves very fast, that’s why getting complacent in business is like going backwards. If you’re not working to improve your business every single day, other people will be doing that work, and they will surpass you. As Wayne Gretzky once said, “Go where the puck will be, not where it is”. Staying comfortable means you’re not growing, it means you aren’t trying new things and learning from mistakes and successes! You need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable!
