In this episode of Real Business Owners, Kale explores the concept of teaching gratitude to individuals without resorting to harsh punishments or adversity.

Master One of the Most Powerful Forces in the Universe w/ Daniel Aranda and Eric Gonzalez | Episode 135

Investing, self improvement, grinding every day, and giving back to the community are just some of&nbsp;the&nbsp;lessons in this episode. We talk to two entrepreneurs, Eric and Daniel who despite still being new to business are leagues ahead of people 5-10 years in business already. Their success comes from knowing that perfecting systems and processes would be key to turn their family trade into an efficient and profitable business. They understood the struggles and sacrifices their families made to move to the United States so their&nbsp;families could live a better life. They both deeply feel like it is their duty to put in the work and capitalize on the opportunity they have in front of them.

Episode 87: Personal Brands

There’s a pretty clear shift happening in today’s consumers. With each passing year, more and more folks are choosing to do business with PEOPLE they know, like and trust as opposed to faceless organizations. When you consider today’s premier brands (Facebook, Amazon, Tesla, etc.), it’s surprising how often you’ll find an individual leading the company who, even outside the business, is a celebrity in their own right. They’ve invested in a personal brand, and it’s paying off in a big way. In this episode, we lay out how to build and leverage a personal brand. It’s a longterm play, but, mark our words, personal branding will prove to be a huge separator 5-10 years down the line! Video of this podcast is available at YouTube.com/RealBusinessOwners.

As you further commit to leveling up in life it will become more and more apparent which of your friends are holding you back. Cutting off those relationships is often difficult or awkward but ultimately an essential part of the process. You can’t force anyone to progress with you, and you’re doing both yourself and that individual a disservice by trying to make it work. In this episode, we illustrate why dropping the deadbeats is so important and discuss techniques to tactfully cut people out. Really, we believe this is a perfect time in history to re-evaluate your friendships. With all the negativity being shared, people are showing their true colors. Between this episode and last week’s, you have the tools to evaluate who in your life is a positive influence and who needs to go. We hope this podcast will inspire you to make the necessary changes.

Episode 55: Tips for Building Multiple Businesses

Before we get into it there’s one thing we want to make clear, you should only look into starting a second business AFTER your first venture is profitable. Don’t be a dumbass.&nbsp; That said, we obviously believe in the power of owning multiple businesses (we co-own five companies with various partners). There’s something invigorating about startup mode, and having multiple irons in the fire can be huge if one venture starts to struggle! Still, making the jump from entrepreneur to SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR comes with a host of new challenges, hence today’s topic! Our experience has taught us that one person can’t give multiple businesses the attention they need, so it ultimately comes down to doing the one thing most entrepreneurs hate most - trusting others!

He understands his industry, his customers, and the power of a brand... and it’s paying off! In this episode, we talk with Jake about his experience with business, the importance of brand integrity, and what he considers the worst part of entrepreneurship (not to mention his opinions on fad diets and a little fitness 101 in the last third).

Episode 52: Things We've Done to Stay Uncomfortable

Finding success in life and business will require a seemingly never-ending string of deeply uncomfortable experiences. Sometimes it’s physical, sometimes it’s mental, and sometimes it’s a financial discomfort, but reaching the next level will always come with growing pains. The good news is you can flip the equation! By forcing yourself into situations that you’re “maybe not ready for,” you can pressure yourself into reaching that new standard! This is a topic we’ve talked around a lot, but we thought it was time to really dive in and speak about things we’ve deliberately done to force growth and improve our tolerance for discomfort. In this episode, we share a variety of experiences from investing in a bigger office, to joining the Arete Syndicate, to going on a psychedelic journey into the mind.

Episode 51: How to Power Through Burnout

A major trap that many people (not just business owners) fall into is trying to avoid burnout. The truth is, you need to power through it if you want to eventually succeed in whatever you’re doing! Your initial passion will inevitably dwindle, but it’s in that moment that you can create degrees of separation between you and the competition!&nbsp; If our experience in business has taught us anything it’s the value of long-term commitment, sticking with something through the ups and downs! You shouldn’t expect great results in the first one or two years, but there’s no sense in quitting when you’ve already finished what will likely be the worst of it!&nbsp; In this episode, we explain why burnout is an integral part of the process and talk about things you can do to help get through it!

In this episode, we share stories of what we now recognize as life-altering experiences that were difficult at the time but ultimately benefited us long-term.

Episode 45: How to Become a Better Leader

Being a great leader is the chief responsibility of a business owner. Every single employee is looking to you for both leadership, AND as a model for their own work ethic. It’s a chokepoint really, poor leadership will kill any business regardless of how much potential it otherwise had. So it’s a lot of pressure, and “becoming a strong leader” is such a broad goal it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. The truth is, great people make great leaders. It’s largely a culmination of your overall excellence as a person. Practicing discipline in other areas of your life will transform you into the type of person others want to follow and emulate. In this episode, we break down this process and cover ways you can accelerate your growth as a leader. We also discuss how your employees view you (the boss), how to build confidence, and tips for becoming a better leader at home.

Like it or not, good credit is an important tool that every entrepreneur should have at their disposal! All three of us had terrible credit at one point, and we’ve slowly built ourselves up to scores over 800.

Episode 20: Screw Your Safety Net

Despite what you might assume, building a “safety cushion” of 5-10K just to have in case “something bad happens” is counterproductive for anyone looking to get into business. This is especially true if an unwillingness to part with this lump sum prevents you from taking advantage of a golden opportunity. You’re much more likely to succeed as an entrepreneur if you can light a fire under your ass, and the comfort of a safety net isn’t doing you any favors in that regard. As always, we don’t advocate being reckless with your money, but this episode covers in detail why we’re against clinging to a petty emergency fund.
