The #1 Thing You Need To Spread Your Message

Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to go with Lori to the Brendon Burchard Coaching Summit, where she was speaking.  When we were backstage talking with Brendon, the subject of not getting hung up on money came up. Brendon said his famous line, “You need money to sustain the message”. In today’s episode, I discuss that one of the biggest things you need to do as an up-and-coming business person and entrepreneur is clear away some of these limiting beliefs and artificial ceilings that you have put on yourself. The biggest is when it comes to earning money, which people somehow think is selfish or greedy. I share my tips for overcoming that limiting belief and harmful money mindset.   IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Limiting beliefs and the barriers that we place on ourselves How to turn your feeling of selfishness into selflessness How to reach the people that need to hear your message RESOURCES Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras or Business Perspective messages to boost your day.     CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me

The #1 Determining Factor For Your Personal Growth & Success

Last night, Lori and I celebrated the birthday of our friend at a black tie, old Hollywood-style gala that he threw. It was amazing! It was the perfect excuse to get dressed to the nines, go out dancing all night long, and to be around our friends and incredible human beings.  While we were there — surrounded by people wanting to have the same conversations as us and feeling immense amounts of gratitude for that — we were reminded of the sad reality that takes place when you're in a crowded room of people who aren’t on the same page. Usually, it results in shrinking yourself and your values. On the flip side, one night of high-end conversations can actually change your life, and that is why you will sink down or rise up depending on if you're outnumbered by positive or negative people.   IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Stopping to appreciate how hard you have worked Why stretching to work with the best is always better than taking shortcuts The difference it makes to surround yourself with like-minded people   RESOURCES Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras to boost your day.  Thanks to Soul CBD for sponsoring the show!

Achieve Your Dreams FASTER With Proximity

I recently got a great question from a listener that I wanted to address on the show because it’s something that I’m really passionate about. She asked if proximity matters and my answer is absolutely, yes.  Proximity is the shortcut to getting where you want to go. For Lori and I, it required moving to a more connected city, stretching ourselves to live in wealthier neighborhoods, and joining luxury gyms to meet the people who were going to help boost our professional network and increase our reach. Proximity isn’t the only thing that matters, but without a doubt, it will make the journey a lot faster and easier.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Why your environment matters  The energy shift that happens when you’re around high achievers  Creative ways to get in rooms with like-minded people  The story behind why Lori and I chose the smallest, cheapest condo in a wealthy building when we were starting over from scratch    RESOURCES Check out chrisharder.me/mastermind to apply for the 2023 Elite Mastermind.  Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras or Business Perspective messages to boost your day.     CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me

This is WHY You Shouldn’t Say Yes To Every Opportunity

For years Lori and I were yes people, and for years we have watched others “yes” themselves to death. Now, we practice not just saying no to things that do not serve our greater vision and purpose, but going beyond that and letting it be okay if we disappoint people by saying no. We have consistently learned from others who have beautiful boundaries to protect and who have thrived by doing so. When you say yes to everything, you water down your message. When you constantly say yes, you take yourself away from your primary vision and the message you want out in the world.   IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Why you shouldn't say yes to every opportunity and should only say yes to what serves your agenda. We discuss the side effects of “yessing” yourself to death If you don’t get an immediate answer to a request, it doesn't mean to stop asking. We discuss how to not take it personally How and why it is harder for women to turn down opportunities and how women can overcome the fear of saying no How people react to your no is usually telling of how they will behave and show up for you down the line Why protecting boundaries and respecting others is so important   RESOURCES Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras to boost your day   CONNECT WITH LORI Follow Lori: @loriharder Follow Lite Pink: @drinklitepink Follow Earn Your Happy: @earnyourhappy Follow Girlfriends & Business: @girlfriendsandbusiness Listen to Girlfriends & Business Listen to Earn Your Happy   CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me

The Feel Good Effect Of Doing Good For Others

This week, I received a magazine from the Wisconsin Maritime Museum celebrating raising 9.5 million dollars to build a tower that houses all sorts of displays for the museum. This just happens to be the tower that my Dad designed and created when he was the President and Chairman of the Board. Until my Dad took that President's seat it was nothing more than a wish and he turned it into a reality.   I started reading the names of the donors and I realized that my community had donated a ton of money cumulatively to my father's dream.

How To Maintain Confidence In Your Business

This week I travelled to Denver to teach at Fast Foundations Mastermind. I planned to spend the lesson debunking the recent article I shared that said people are more afraid of a recession than ever before. To kick things off, I prompted the students to rate their confidence levels of their business succeeding. Their answers threw me a curve ball in the best way. They were all extremely confident people. The reason? Community. They knew they were surrounded by motivated people, therefore, they felt motivation. They didn't feel fear.

The human experience, especially as an entrepreneur, can feel like a never-ending roller coaster. Lori recently had a day where she was feeling super low and in her head about the direction of her life, but she was able to snap out of it by talking to our new neighbors and sharing her business experience. We’ve realized that we’re happiest when we’re living our purpose, which for us means building something, working hard, and creating meaningful experiences with people that we love.

635. How To Make Your Expenses "Free"

I sold $330,000 of Ethereum back in October 2020 to contribute to the downpayment of our house. Eleven months later, that $330,000 would’ve been $5,000,000. Ouch.

634. Our Biggest Lessons From Italy

We’ve finally had some time to really reflect about our vacation to the Amalfi Coast and want to share some of our biggest takeaways from the trip. Our friend Rob Murgatroyd curated so many beautiful experiences as part of his Work Hard Play Hard Mastermind and we were able to really soak up the Italian culture, art, food, and fashion. We talk about getting clarity on how we’re going to balance the joy and production containers of our lives, and our commitment to making time for new, enriching experiences in our week.    We learned about the Italian saying “Dolce Far Niente,” which means the sweetness of doing nothing, observing beauty, and enjoying life in the moment. Lori and I want to take time to be more present in our everyday lives and worry less about things that we don’t have control over. This trip proved to us that a vacation doesn't have to be just a moment in time一we can extend this sense of peace and wonder into our everyday lives.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Examples of how Italians value both form and function, and beauty for beauty’s sake  Why we’re cutting off work at 1PM on Fridays for the next few months  Applying deeper meaning to our beautiful life together and taking away the power that stress has  Finding magic in connection and conversation when business isn’t the main topic  The benefits of getting out of your environment and day-to-day comfort zone    RESOURCES Blue Mind by Wallace J.

633. How To Stay Productive When The Headlines Aren't Positive

I read a headline the other day about Elon Musk laying off 10% of the Tesla staff because of predictions about an upcoming recession. I can usually see through the BS clickbait headlines, but this one really got me down. Instead of staying in that funk, I decided to dig a little deeper and realized that the dramatic headline was way off from the truth about what’s going on at Tesla. This was a great reminder for me that skewed data and scandalous headlines can make us feel positive and take action, or feel negative and freeze.    I’m sharing how to spot when data is taken out of context and why it’s so important to surround yourself with positive propaganda. I promise that what I’m putting out there will always be based on facts and I’ll continue to offer solutions, including mine and Lori’s course that will bulletproof you for whatever happens with the economy.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Recognizing your reactions to misleading, provocative headlines  Doing your due diligence and getting facts about what’s going on in your arena  Recapping what a recession actually is and why it doesn’t have to slow you down  Why I’ve committed to making more money this year than I did last year My promise to be the voice of reason and possibility    RESOURCES Text BULLETPROOF to 310-421-0416 to get VIP Early Access to mine and Lori’s new course!  Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras or Business Perspective messages to boost your day.     CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me

630. Stevie & Sazan On Their Formula To Live The GOOD LIFE

It’s easy to look at influencers and think, man, that’s the good life. They get free products, they live in nice houses, drive beautiful cars, and they don’t have any financial stress. But, what people choose to show on social media is often the highlight reel and we’re not seeing the tough decisions and the bold moves that it takes to get to those perks. I’m joined by Stevie and Sazan Hendrix, two internet moguls who know all about that.    Stevie and Sazan are redefining what it means to live the good life, embracing simplicity, and pulling back the curtain on what it’s really like to be a social media influencer. We talk about how they balance being both grateful for what they have and also hungry for more, and the three things they do to stay grounded in their chaotic world. They break down how they deal with harsh comments and emphasize the crucial role that their strong faith plays in their success. Stevie and Sazan also share inspiring stories about their family heritage and talk about the foundation of their cross-cultural relationship.     IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Finding ways to protect your peace when you’re an online figure  Recognizing the beauty in the ordinary and living an intentional life  Understanding that challenge and good can coexist at the same time  Expressing compassion for people who spread hate The sweet spot where you're you're not pursuing so much that you've lost your way, but you also have enough where you don't want for anything Stevie’s number one piece of advice for financial freedom How Stevie and Sazan stay rooted in their relationship to God    RESOURCES Text BULLETPROOF to 310-421-0416 get on the VIP Early Access list for my upcoming course!  Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras or Business Perspective messages to boost your day.     CONNECT WITH STEVIE & SAZAN Follow Sazan: @sazan  Follow Stevie: @stevie_hendrix  Listen to The Good Life with Stevie and Sazan   CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me

629. How To Double Your Money Every 6-9 Years

I’m sharing a quick financial rule called The Rule of 72 that I wish somebody would have not only taught me when I was younger, but shaken me by the shoulders and made me fully understand the value of this calculation. You can use The Rule of 72 to determine how quickly your money can double. It’s simple: take the number 72 and divide it by the rate of return you're getting on your investment, and it tells you what year it will double. Some of the greatest investment minds suggest buying mutual funds that invest in index funds. When you average out all the ups and downs, the S&P has averaged 10.7%. So whether you’re in your early 20s and just starting out, or you’re like me in your 40s (or beyond) and thinking about retirement, it’s never too late to plant it, set it, and forget it.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: How the Rule of 72 works  Warren Buffet’s investing advice that has always stuck with me  Examples of what it looks like to invest conservatively vs. aggressively  How inflation comes into play with The Rule of 72  Details about how my new course can help you take advantage of compounding interest    RESOURCES Text BULLETPROOF to 310-421-0416 to get on the Early Access VIP List for the Be Online personal branding course Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras or Business Perspective messages to boost your day.     CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me

628. What To Do If You're Afraid Of A Recession Coming

Lori came to me the other day and wanted to have a conversation about what’s really going on in this uncertain economy, what I think is coming in the future, and how we can prepare ourselves so that we don’t experience a repeat of 2008/2009 when we had to start over from scratch. So many of us are scarred from The Great Recession, but the reality is that there are so many news outlets that rely on fear mongering techniques that make people freeze in fear. In today's episode, I explain how we’ve ended up in this rapid inflation situation, why a recession is usually a self-fulfilling prophecy, and three ways that you can bulletproof yourself for whatever’s coming down the pipeline.    IN THIS EPISODE, WE TALK ABOUT: Navigating negative propaganda about the economy  Debunking myths about economic recessions  Taking a critical look at your monthly spending habits  Ideas for how to create a new income stream Why I always suggest having a 12 month reserve in your savings account  The single thing that will set us apart from having another ‘08/’09 situation    RESOURCES Text BULLETPROOF to 310-421-0416 to get VIP early access to my new course.  Text DAILY to 310-421-0416 to get daily Money Mantras to boost your day.    CONNECT WITH LORI Follow Lori: @loriharder Follow Lite Pink: @drinklitepink Follow Earn Your Happy: @earnyourhappy Follow Girlfriends & Business: @girlfriendsandbusiness Listen to Girlfriends & Business Listen to Earn Your Happy   CONNECT WITH CHRIS Follow Me: @chriswharder Visit My Website: https://chrisharder.me
