Life beyond money! You got rich, now what?

Welcome to Richer Soul. Your journey to a more a purposeful, intentional, amazing life. Where are you going to go and how are you going to get there? Let's figure that out together. At the core is the financial well being to be able to do what you want, when you want, how you want. Freedom!!!

    Integrating Life and Business in Harmony with Daniel Brown

    Integrating Life and Business in Harmony with Daniel Brown

    Integrating Life and Business in Harmony
     
    Take away:
    Shed any lingering victim mentality and wholeheartedly embrace that you alone have the power to architect the life you want through your effort, mindset, and choices. True freedom comes from this radical responsibility.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Daniel Brown didn't receive much education about money management, saving, or investing when he was growing up as a child. As the "golden child" and only child, life was very comfortable and money was readily available. However, this easy upbringing meant he didn't learn important lessons about preserving wealth, saving for the future, or the value of having a "rainy day" fund. It was only later in life, after facing some financial struggles himself in real estate, that he realized the importance of building an emergency fund, saving consistently, and having a long-term investing mindset from an early age.
     
    Bio:
    CEO of Brownstone in Austin. Brit by birth, American by choice, and a family man with a wonderful wife, 5 children, and 2 little grandkids. We're in the business of creating beautiful spec homes that prioritize design, quality and health. We're pushing to transform our current 15 homes into 50 plus per year, via our just launched $20m investment fund raise, in our aim to meet Austin's booming need for more and better living spaces. Beyond bricks and mortar, I'm all about personal growth and holistic health. I firmly believe with the right mindset and effort, almost anyone can excel at almost anything, and that true happiness and health is within our control. I dream of a future where everyone is moving ever closer to their ultimate potential.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Embrace discomfort and seek challenges to build resilience and a growth mindset. Stepping out of your comfort zone leads to personal development.
    Emphasize whole-body health through a balanced focus on nutrition, exercise/movement, and mental/spiritual well-being. Neglecting any area leads to imbalance.
    Prioritize real, unprocessed foods and stay away from ultra-processed "franken-foods" for optimal health. Start with simple diet changes.
    Incorporate varied movement patterns like lifting, carrying, and throwing to mimic natural human movements for strength and mobility. Move beyond traditional gym exercises.
    Explore the mind-body connection. Physical ailments may have roots in unresolved emotional trauma. Address the emotional component of healing.
    Build and maintain strong community connections. Surrounding yourself with positive, growth-oriented individuals elevates your mindset.
    Continually pursue knowledge through reading and applying insights. Knowledge alone is not power - applied knowledge leads to positive change.

    How to Reclaim your Freedom with Dr. Emma Seppala

    How to Reclaim your Freedom with Dr. Emma Seppala

    How to Reclaim Your Freedom 
     
    Take away:
    By cultivating this inner sovereignty first, you can then show up in life with more resilience, creativity, focus, and charisma in whatever you do - be it work, relationships, or pursuing wealth and success. But the wealth ultimately has to start from valuing and caring for yourself from the inside first. That allows you to thrive from a grounded, empowered state, rather than constantly striving from anxiety or self-denial.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Discussions about money, wealth, or comparing financial situations were discouraged in her household when Dr. Emma Seppala was growing up.  Her parents discouraged her from talking about or thinking too much about other people's wealth or material possessions. Money was not a major topic of discussion or emphasis in her family during her childhood.
     
    Bio:
    Emma Seppälä, Ph.D., is a Yale professor, best-selling author of The Happiness Track, and research scientist who has researched the effects of meditation and breathing on happiness, anxiety, and trauma. She has a new book coming out by Hay House on April 24th titled Sovereign: Reclaim Your Freedom, Energy and Power in a Time of Distraction, Uncertainty and Chaos that is sure to become a bestseller.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Cultivating inner peace and sovereignty through practices like meditation, unplugging from technology, spending time in nature, and practicing gratitude is crucial for living an abundant life.
    Developing a supportive, compassionate relationship with oneself, rather than constant self-criticism, leads to better mental health, cognitive abilities, relationships, and overall success.
    Training the nervous system through breathing exercises can increase resilience and calmness in the face of stress and uncertainty.
    True creativity and innovative thinking arise when the mind is in a relaxed, present state – not from constant busyness and device usage.
    Multitasking is ineffective; being fully present and attentive, whether with ourselves or others, is a powerful charismatic quality.
    Question societal narratives promoting chronic busyness, achievement obsession, and emotional suppression – these diminish energy and fulfillment.
    Nurture an inner voice of authenticity from a young age, rather than blindly following prescribed norms about success and worth.

    Crafting the Employee Experience with Kent Lewis

    Crafting the Employee Experience with Kent Lewis

    Crafting the Employee Experience 
     
    Take away:
    Developing an abundant mindset centered on gratitude for what you have, rather than lament what's lacking, is key to living a fulfilling life. Balancing business growth with personal fulfillment means defining your "why" and ideal lifestyle, not just chasing endless expansion. Prioritizing employee engagement through efforts like "stay interviews" and enabling people to do what they're passionate about leads to higher profitability and client satisfaction. And instilling financial literacy around passive income streams like real estate from an early age can set a strong foundation for long-term wealth creation.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Kent's parents had purchased a 10-unit apartment building before he was born. While they had modest incomes from their jobs, the rental income and equity buildup from the apartment building provided an additional stream of income and financial security. This taught Kent the value of real estate investments for generating passive income.
    His parents taught him not to rely on Social Security for retirement income, as it may not exist by the time he retires. They emphasized that he would need to create his own wealth and fund his own retirement through savings and investments.
    His uncle's example of buying his first apartment building while in college, and dressing professionally because successful real estate investors dressed that way, also influenced Kent's view of real estate as a path to building wealth from an early age.
     
    Bio:
    Kent Lewis founder of pdxMindShare, an online career community and networking group mentioned on Seth Godin’s blog. Formerly a CMO and founder or co-founder of multiple agencies, he’s known as a thought leader in digital marketing. He’s been an adjunct professor for more than 20 years at Portland State University and a volunteer instructor for SCORE. Lewis co-founded SEMpdx in 2006, a trade organization for search engine marketing professionals. His recognition includes Marketer of the Year by the American Marketing Association and Top 100 Digital Marketing Influencers by BuzzSumo.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Building passive income streams through real estate investments as a way to achieve financial independence.
    Balancing personal fulfillment with business growth - finding the right size and structure that aligns with your values and desired lifestyle.
    Prioritizing employee engagement and satisfaction as a key driver of profitability and client retention.
    Conducting "stay interviews" to understand what motivates employees and how to improve their experience.
    Defining your "why" and living life on your own terms, rather than chasing other people's definitions of success.
    Cultivating an attitude of gratitude and focusing on what you have, rather than what you lack, to live an abundant life.

    Reprogram Your Brain with Dr. Don Wood

    Reprogram Your Brain with Dr. Don Wood

    Reprogram Your Brain
     
    Take away:
    Recognizing that our childhood experiences, both positive and negative, shape our biology in profound ways. Creating a safe, nurturing environment for kids is vital for their future well-being. And for adults, healing unresolved traumas from the past may be the key to unlocking better physical and mental health.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Dr. Don Wood had an "idyllic childhood" with very nurturing parents who never yelled, screamed, or hit him and his siblings. This provided a safe, calm home environment. His father was financially disciplined and taught them how to save money, despite not being wealthy himself. By age 19, Dr. Wood says he had $30,000 saved in the bank.
     
    His parents passed down values like financial discipline, saving diligently, avoiding wastefulness, and maintaining sufficiency - likely shaped by their own experiences growing up in challenging times. Their nurturing parenting style coupled with modeling provident financial behaviors laid a foundation for Dr. Wood's positive relationship with money from a young age.
     
    Bio:
    Don Wood, PhD, author, speaker, Founder & CEO of the Inspired Performance Institute, and creator of the patented TIPP method focused on helping people resolve their trauma and get their lives to a place of high performance. 
     
    He has helped 1000’s of people live a better life and overcome the effects of stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction with his neuroscience-backed program, TIPP.
     
    TIPP program is designed to clear away the effects of disturbing or traumatic events, repurpose old thinking patterns and set the individual’s mind up for peak performance. 
     
    Dr. Wood is also author of two books, Emotional Concussions and You Must Be Out of your Mind and is releasing his newest book Don’t Mess With My DNA in near future.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Unresolved childhood trauma can lead to inflammation, a compromised immune system, and various mental/physical health issues like autoimmune disorders, addictions, anxiety, and depression.
    Our early childhood environments and how we were parented shape how our DNA gets expressed - creating either resilient biology or increased disease susceptibility.
    Addictive behaviors are the mind's way of coping with emotional pain by creating neurological "codes" that provide temporary relief.
    Traumatic memories get stored in vivid high-definition, keeping the nervous system in a perpetual state of activation as if the threat is still present.
    A calm, safe, and nurturing home environment is crucial for children to develop properly regulated nervous systems and healthy mind-body connections.
    Emotions like fear and anger signal the subconscious trying to provoke a protective action, but get dysregulated when sourced from past traumatic memories.
    An innovative 4-hour program can "reset" high-definition traumatic memories, allowing the mind and body's natural healing capabilities to restore balance.

    Living a Resolved Life with Anand Damani

    Living a Resolved Life with Anand Damani

    Living a Resolved Life
     
    Take away:
    Creating an ecosystem that allows people's natural talents and tendencies to emerge, rather than forcing predetermined roles, enables harmonious teams and businesses that can thrive.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Anand grew up in a small industrial town in southern India where the match stick and firecracker industry thrived. Though money was not explicitly discussed at home or in school, he could see the impacts and importance of economics all around him from a young age. Anand imbibed principles like saving, living within means, respecting the value of money, and receiving it graciously from elders through his childhood observations and experiences in that industrial town environment.
     
    Bio:
     
    Existential Realist & Spiritualist, Technology Integration expert, IT Business Services, Writer, Speaker & Philosopher.
     
    Anand Damani's life embodies the model of a perfectly happy human being. He revels in the present and collaborates harmoniously with others to foster global happiness. This approach is rooted in his deep understanding of the absolute truth as imparted by Nature to Shri A.A Nagarajji.
     
    Damani believes that true knowledge is that which is practiced; the rest, he considers merely academic jargon. He lives out this knowledge every moment, existing in bliss and harmony with himself, with other human beings, and with Nature.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Aligning your thoughts, actions, and purpose is key to living a resolved and harmonious life without internal conflicts or delusions.
    The true essence of yoga goes far beyond physical exercise - it's a systematic path to understand life's deeper realities and find inner peace.
    Create an ecosystem that allows people's natural talents and tendencies to emerge, rather than forcing roles - this enables harmonious teams and businesses.
    An abundant mindset recognizes that nature can fulfill all our true needs if we align ourselves properly.
    Being openly grateful for others and accepting people as they are, instead of trying to change them, brings more peace.
    Advise for youth: Remain open-minded and receptive to life's lessons instead of forming rigid beliefs early on.

    Human Life Value with Michael Isom

    Human Life Value with Michael Isom

    Human Life Value 
     
    Take away:
    The importance of doing deep inner work to uncover and let go of limiting beliefs and childhood traumas that may be unconsciously shaping our perspectives, actions, and ability to trust ourselves and others as adults.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Michael Isom started working at a local motorcycle dealership when he was in 7th grade, earning $2.25 an hour. He used the money he earned to pay for things he wanted like clothes for school, motorcycle parts, and dating expenses.
    In his senior year of high school, he paid his mom $100 per month in rent to help out the family. Michael attributes learning the value of money from his ability to earn it himself and spend it as he wished from a young age. He emphasizes that there is no substitute for allowing kids to earn and spend money themselves to truly understand its value. This was a key financial lesson he learned growing up and something he practiced with his own children as well.
     
    Bio:
    Michael Isom has dedicated his life to empowering conversations around production and protection. He passionately believes that we are living during the most extraordinary time in human history. Entrepreneurs are going to create more wealth for themselves and society over the next decade than we did during the entire 20th century.
    Michael built the financial firm Vault AIS for you to understand and leverage the principles underlying these economic forces at play.
    Co-Author of What Would The Rockefellers Do, Michael speaks across the country inspiring business owners and professionals on The AIS Triangle. A unique system to pay less in tax, safeguard money, access that money along the way, earn interest versus paying it, ensuring money survives from one generation to the other and simplifying personal finance.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    The importance of allowing children to earn and spend their own money to truly learn the value of a dollar.
    Examining the human life value balance sheet - identifying assets like knowledge, relationships, and values versus liabilities like limiting beliefs and negativity.
    The transformative power of doing deep inner work to uncover childhood traumas and stories that shape our perspectives and actions as adults.
    Finding clarity on our true wants and needs through practices like journaling, meditation, and self-reflection.
    Considering our careers/businesses as our #1 investment where we should take risks and maintain passion, rather than gambling in areas outside our expertise.
    Fulfilling the higher human needs of growth and contribution as a path to true significance.
    Cultivating trust in oneself and gaining diverse experiences, especially in youth, to discover one's area of passion and expertise.
