From A Surgeon to An Entrepreneur Worth $500 Million with Dr. Eric George
“Stay in your lane!”. If you’ve ever heard this phrase before, you may know how it feels to be shut down before you can even try new things.
It is human nature to want to continuously grow and learn. Yet if we restrict ourselves to the things that we know and the things that make us comfortable, we will never be pushed towards growth. As Jon Beaty says, “If you’re not growing, you’re dying.”
As a hand physician, Eric was always told to stay in his lane and not pursue investment opportunities outside his scope of practice.
However, with his passion and curiosity for learning new things, that was just not possible for him. He believes that “we have an innate intelligence to learn any new discipline.”
It is with this mindset that Eric has been able to not only achieve a net worth of $500 million but to also be an exceptional hand surgeon, and run several successful practices.
He also credits his success and balance on the talented and caring individuals around him, who share his passion for meeting and helping others, as well as his loving wife, Kim, and two daughters, Chloe and Cassidy.
Today, Eric is a renowned hand surgeon, serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, published author, philanthropist, founder and CEO of Omega Hospital, New Orleans’s first physician-owned hospital; the Hand Center of Louisiana, where he actively practices; and ERG Enterprises, a $1 billion investment firm committed to changing communities worldwide.
On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Eric and I discuss how he took the plunge and became a serial entrepreneur, why abundance is so much more than just wealth, and why we should reject the phrase, “Stay in your lane.”
From Surviving to Thriving as a Working Mother and Life Coach with Veenu Keller
Veenu Keller was 6 years old when she realized that she was different. Being the only person of color in her community, Veenu was teased until her bullies’ words became her own internal dialogue.
She was only 13 years old when the suicidal thoughts began and 15 years old when she attempted to take her life for the first time. By the age of 18, and in search of happiness, Veenu got married and had 2 children.
12 years later, she was a single mother praying for the day that she could leave this earth, wondering why life kept on beating and breaking her down.
Then one day, just as Veenu thought that all hope was lost, she attended a life-changing seminar. She realized that she has a gift. She realized that everything that has happened in her life has happened FOR her and not TO her.
Veenu realized that all the trials and tribulations that she experienced had made her stronger than ever before, and had given her the ability to help others who are in similar situations. Veenu Keller is now known as The Family TurnAround Expert, Certified Life Coach, Behavioral Consultant, and a bestselling author.
More than that, she is a heart-centered family interventionist who possesses deep and abiding wisdom that allows her to come into any family experiencing dissonance and crack the code needed to bring them peace and harmony.
Today, Veenu is a loving mother of 6 children, best selling author, a certified Tony Robbins Life Coach, Behavior consultant, founder of The In Home Family TurnAround Program, and public speaker.
On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Veenu and I discuss what the Family In-Home TurnAround is, the most effective ways in encouraging and communicating with your children, and how we need to let go of our own baggage first before attempting to be our best selves.
From Homeless To Tech Innovator with Lean A.I. Author Lomit Patel
Are you limiting yourself from success? If you think that you are only capable of living an average life, then that’s what you will experience.
But if you believe that you can do anything, from creating Artificial Intelligence systems to climbing Mount Everest, through hard work and determination, you can achieve it.
Lomit Patel is yet another perfect example of how the American Dream is possible for any who wish to achieve it.
After immigrating to the USA with little money as a grad student, he spent a few years struggling, living below his means, and couch surfing.
Despite struggling with homelessness, Lomit Patel made strides with his Artificial Intelligence pursuit.
After years of persistence and determination, he finally managed to streamline automation through Artificial Intelligence at early-stage startups including Roku (IPO), TrustedID (acquired by Equifax), Texture (acquired. by Apple), and EarthLink.
Today, Lomit is the Vice President of Growth at IMVU, which is the world’s largest avatar-based social networking app, a public speaker, advisor, recognized as a Mobile Hero by Liftoff, and bestselling author of “Lean AI”, which is based on how innovative startups can use artificial intelligence to grow significantly faster.
On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Lomit and I discuss whether or not our phones are really listening to us, what it was like being an immigrant and achieving a high level of success, and what is up and coming in the online world.
Create Your Own American Dream with Snap Fitness Founder Peter Taunton
Most people will sit and wait for their 'big break' to just fall into their laps. Unfortunately, the only people who will ever become successful are those that go out and fight for it. So, my question to you is this,
Are you going to sit and wait, or are you going to get up, take action, and create YOUR own success?
Peter Taunton grew up in a middle-class family. He didn’t have a lot of money, but what he had was willpower and determination to create a life of success.

In 2010, he was named an Ernst and Young “Entrepreneur of the Year.” His companies have also been featured for six years running in such prestigious industry lists as Entrepreneur 500, Inc 5000, Top Global, and Franchise 500.
Today Peter is the founder of Snap Fitness, which franchises in 2,500 locations in 26 countries, and is the CEO of Lift Brands, which consists of 9Round, Farrell’s, YogaFit, STEELE Fitness, and Fitness On Demand.
On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Peter and I discuss how he created and scaled Snap Fitness from 1 gym to more than 2,500, the trials and tribulations of being a leader and an entrepreneur, and how the American dream is possible for anyone who wants it bad enough.
From Rags To Riches - Living The American Dream w/ Sam Bakhtiar
When you get knocked down, you have two options - you can stay down, or you can get back up and keep going.
Adversity is always near and can surprise you when you least expect it. But if you keep on getting back up, you get stronger, smarter, and more resilient.
It’s time to get back on your feet and go get your success!
After surviving a series of bombings and near-death experiences, Sam Bakhtiar, an 11-year-old refugee, left Iran with his single mother.
They arrived in America with $500, one piece of luggage, and a very bright future.
He has been knocked down more times than he can remember, but every single time adversity knocked him off his feet, he stood up stronger.
Today, Sam is a loving husband and father, a doctor, CEO, author, world-class bodybuilder, and multi-millionaire entrepreneur. He runs a fitness franchising business, The Camp Transformation Center, and two different supplement and nutrition companies.
On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Sam and I discuss what it was like growing up in Iran, how he is the definition of The American Dream, and why he loves working one on one with people and guiding them to their success.
