88: Model What Works with Rennie Gabriel

From the time he was young, Rennie Gabriel was struggling with how to handle money effectively. It was definitely not taught in schools and the CPAs he approached certainly did not have personal budgeting information that they could teach. When he got deeper in debt even though he made more money, it finally dawned on him that more money was not going to solve a problem of mismanagement. He began to model what works and started hanging around with people who had the attitudes he needed to adopt. Rennie started copying what the wealthy did and started understanding the attitudes that wealthy people operated by. That’s what led him to start a program called Debtors Anonymous, a twelve-step program for people who can't handle money to find mental, emotional, and psychological support from other people who’ve been through the same things.

This is perfectly understandable and normal because almost the same thing happened to Jason Swenk. It was the dot com era and he was hired into a company like he was a college football superstar. His computer degree helped him perform in his job but he realized that sitting around and trying to be significant didn’t make him feel fulfilled. He knew what he was good at and saw clearly what he was passionate about, so he started building confidence that he could do it on his own and start his own business and went through the phonebooks to offer his services. Jason shares his experiences of self-awareness to understand the needs and challenges of his clients.Love the show? Subscribe, rate, review, and share!Here’s How »Join Your First Thousand Clients Community today:mitchrusso.comMitch Russo LinkedIn
