    EP 167 | Be the Soul of Your Business ft. Tristan Martin

    I played the game so differently for so many years because I had to.

    I had very good mentor habits – which have now led me to have very good decision making that aren't necessarily how I can make the most money.

    Looking at the re-organization of my sales structure, I looked at how much the sales department was making, and I wasn’t sure it was truly worth it for them to be taking such a large percentage of the profits.

    When I hired this one guy that had all this experience, I was truly weary about things that seemed guaranteed about this person.

    I also had other influences asking me “at your level, do you really need to be mentoring another person?”

    These conversations made me appreciate some things that I wasn’t looking at before for example - work ethic.

    If I can’t duplicate myself - I thought I’d be able to teach one of my skills to someone who would take it as an entire role. And I expected them to be better than me because of it and and that’s a bias, that’s just not true.

    You need to be able to sit down with an individual and say:


    these are my expectations
    this is how you can meet them
    and this is what it looks like when you’re winning

    and then put that on an employment agreement.

    EP 166 | Fancy Fails, Simple Scales

    Hot Takes from John: “When I die I want all my loved ones to go work HARD that day, go MAKE SOME BREAD. The last thing I would want when I die is to have a big funeral where everyone ends up taking a day off for John the Capitalist so they’re gloomy and sad.”

    Let’s put this into a better translation: To make it seem that a funeral is about the person who has passed on when you are actually experiencing sadness over your own loss in loving this person, would be selfish.

    Now, we could also argue that John is being a little selfish for not letting his loved ones go through whatever process they need to say goodbye and move on from their relationship 😂

    Listeners, we would love to hear your opinion on this one!

    Ep 165 | Gangster's Paradise

    I went outside my comfort zone on Friday.

    “I went out on Friday and two great things happened, I was getting outside of my comfort zone where I was open to being rejected, and so I was open to approaching girls that I find very attractive. And that’s been so great stepping outside of my comfort zone there I definitely suffered more in my mind than I actually did in reality.

    The second thing was that I was waiting in line to get into this place on Friday with my friends – I’ve been going out more on Fridays because I think I need to start becoming more social and actually start going for rejections - it’s my goal now that I need to get rejected by at least two women that I think are extremely attractive in a night.

    So in line, I approach this bouncer to ask if we could be let in since we genuinely just wanted to go grab a bite in there - this place had awesome pizza. And while this is happening, this guy behind me just started straight harassing me… and I found that it didn’t affect me at all… I looked at him and saw that we were cut from the same cloth, he has a spirit like my own he’s probably going through some shit. ” - AA

    Ladies and gentlemen this is the new found a Amer Abu Shakra that’s been indulging in meditations by Marcus Aurelius

    Consider the possibilities for you after picking up this book 😎 possibly an attractive female?? 👀

    Ep 164 | Should You Save A Stranger’s Life?

    'I got a text this week from a foundation called "The Gift of Life Marrow Registry":

    “Hi Austin, this is Jacqueline from the gift of life registry. You swabbed your cheek in 2018 and have been identified as a potential match to a patient.”

    I filled out this health questionnaire and then they called me immediately and they go "Hey, this is Austin? This is Zach from The Gift of Life Marrow Registry, you are a perfect match for a patient with leukaemia in the US. Okay so, what this is all about is you either donate stem cells or bone marrow depending on what the needs of the patient of which is currently unclear – there’s a huge process to understand that.'

    If you were given an opportunity, would you be willing to save a stranger's life?

    Ep 163 | What Parts of Your Past Are You Fighting?

    Everyday I would wake up...

    I would be anxious while waiting for the bus...

    When I got to work, I would be anxious thinking to myself "fuck, what am I doing with my life?"...

    Then after work, my friends and I would get in one truck, go to a park, get insanely high, and play grounders on a playground. 

    My life didn't feel easier back then having less responsibilities than I do now. That to me, was a way harder life than what I'm living now. At the time, the drive that I had to have to just escape that part of my life, is a lot more than the drive I have now to achieve the next level of my business. 

    Listeners, what are the parts of your past that you're fighting?

Hooman Rahemi ,

One of the best podcasts ever

You only need to listen to a couple of episodes and you’ll get hooked. I listen to lots of podcasts and this is one of the best! I am used to Tim Ferris type shows that are mostly interviews so every single episode is different. These guys don’t do interviews but the content is never repetitive and always surprises me.

A Must Listen for Top Performers

The easiest 5/5 review I’ve ever given! Give this podcast a listen!

SWP Operator ,

Consistently great episodes

Aside from John throwing some shade at Bobby Ryan, this is a great podcast. Never a dull moment.
