Setting ‘realistic goals’ often ends up in a loss of excitement for your work. The 10X Rule is about thinking beyond and re-inspiring people. 09.50 – Don’t be put off by ‘ridiculous’. One target can be just as ridiculous as another: why write a business plan for $1 million when you can write one for $10 million? 12.00 – Grant Cardone’s upcoming book deals with issues about the middle class, including whether it even exists. 15.30 – With both sides crushing the middle class, the only option is to get rich, and you can do it. 16.00 – Never underestimate the power of saying ‘yes’ to things, and where that can take you. 17.30 – Our culture of not taking risks – even of just not talking to strangers – is the riskiest situation we could put ourselves in. What we lose from not taking risks is extensive. 18.00 – If it’s true that your income is the average of the 5 people you spend most time with, you can only expand yourself if you meet new people. 19.45 – The people you know right now won’t change your life. Meet new people, they’ll change your life tomorrow. 21.00 – Make a list of who you need to meet who can change your life. 23.50 – If you’re already kidding yourself about having just a couple of areas of your life being great, stop and make everything great. Make everything 10X. 24.50 – To get what you want, every day you have to do things you don’t want to do. You’ll set yourself apart as being one of the few who does what is necessary to get the job done. 0 0 1 371 2121 Podfly Productions LLC 17 4 2488 14.0 Normal 0 false false false EN-GB JA X-NONE /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:11.0pt; font-family:Tahoma; mso-ansi-language:EN-GB;} 26.30 – Information can be found about Grant Cardone’s work at,, on his YouTube channel, through typing his name into Google, or through following him on Twitter @GrantCardone.

Companies such as AppSumo are pioneering the trend. 08.35 – Your website’s use of pop-ups can be improved by first posing a yes/no question in a pop-up and then leading to the chance to enter a name and email address, rather than immediately asking for these personal details. 11.30 – For your calls to action to be successful, you have to find a balance between the nurturing side and the business side. That way if one isn’t working for the client, you have the other to fall back on to reassure them. 12.35 – In terms of visual website optimisation, split-testing gives you so much scope for making individual changes to your site and monitoring visitors’ response to it.

YW 73 - Be Your Own Boss with Ace Chapman

It was 2002 but it seems like it was just yesterday. Ace Chapman was 22 and just the thought of what the next 40 years would look like terrified him. He had tried some business ideas here and there and nothing seemed to work. It seemed nearly impossible to get ahead. He had little savings, student loans, and credit card debt. He was so sick of being broke and not being able to afford to finer things in life or the freedom to follow his passion for travel and connecting with people.    A college dropout, Ace knew he would hit a glass ceiling in the corporate world. Yet he had neither the time or money to afford more education. Talking to my his workers nearing retirement, Ace saw his future as retiring on a little more than social security. It was obvious speaking to them that despite all the hype around retirement plan they weren’t working in reality. It was a pathetic existence spending so much of his life doing something he didn’t enjoy.   Well, eventually he was fired and he had a choice. Either go back and find another job or shoot for something bigger…freedom. Ace didn’t realize then how drastically different his life was going to be depending on that decision but he was so happy he made the decision he did. Ace went for something bigger and honestly he had no idea what he was doing. He made some sacrifices, began investing in real estate, and realized he had a knack for it. Pretty soon Ace was making more money than he was at his previous job. He went on to buy a franchise business and put up billboards all over the city saying, “We Buy Ugly Houses.” He grew that business to be his first million dollar business and sold it.   Ace then took some of the money and bought two retail stores, one in Chattanooga and another out of state. At one point each business was doing over $1 million dollars in revenue. Before he knew it, he had become a true entrepreneur. But it was nothing like he envisioned. Ace was working for himself but he was working even harder than he was at his previous employer – 80 plus hours a week! Dealing with more headaches each week and putting out fires constantly. The money was good, and life was much better than being an employee, but it was not the life he had envisioned. It got to the point where he decided to sell those businesses. Ace was glad to be rid of the headaches and have the opportunity to start from scratch with his new knowledge. He took a little time off, traveled and just collected monthly checks from financing the sell of my different businesses. Ace had the opportunity to do some consulting and build a relationship with a certified billionaire. It was then that he realized that the wealthiest people in America were not wealthy because of cash flow from their business but from growing a business and either selling it all to a a single buyer or portions via the stock market to shareholders. Most importantly Ace learned that you really can create you own your reality. Imagine how much more rewarding it would be if you could tap into 100% of your own potential. Imagine how much different your bank account would look. The secret to me has always been about providing more value than you take. Compensation is just a bi-product of your value to society. Your income is really defined by your value to society. Its pretty simple. Learn more skills, both left brain technical like Google and also right brain, less technical stuff like leadership skills and being able to inspire people. To be able to look someone in the eye and tell them you can help them get where they want to go and know that you can is one of the most powerful things you can provide the world.

This leads into his new work regarding healthy male development and his upcoming new book, Boys to Men, a look at how boys have been affected by today’s culture, showing a higher dropout rate than girls, lower comprehension, and higher instances of boredom and depression.  The high carbohydrate diet we consume plays a big role in this trend, and he cites inflammation in the brain as one factor in decreased comprehension.

YW 48 - Education Without Boundries with Jon Modica

Jon Modica is the Founder and CEO of Nutmeg Education. He discusses online educational tools that are being used in schools today. He also shares information for parents to find online tools that schools are using. Jon thinks more schools should be using such online learning tools. Jon’s passion for education grew during his time at Connecticut College where he worked with a kindergarten program for a course requirement. After becoming deeply interested in how children learn, he chose to major in Human Development and received a teaching certificate in elementary education. After he received the Louis Lacey McGarry Award for his work with children, he was motivated to work on a documentary of an afterschool program at a homeless shelter, and also pursue an independent study on bilingual education. To learn more about the great inequities in our education system, Jon pursued a master’s degree in Urban Education Policy at Brown University. During his final months in the program, he found a significant disconnect between the goals of policy makers, the real effect those policies have had on schools and the services that various agencies are providing to support schools — in particular, the way schools and educators are dealing with the pressures of high stakes testing. Jon founded Nutmeg Education, LLC with the goal of helping teachers deal with these pressures in ways that can help student achievement, without using subversive teaching methods. By working closely with dozens of teachers, school leaders, students, and a team of sophisticated web developers, Jon hopes Nutmeg Education will do just that. Visit Nutmeg Education at
