    Bold Moves and Words - with Zachary Babcock

    Bold Moves and Words - with Zachary Babcock

    Entrepreneurship involves a great deal of risk, yet so many people are too afraid to take a risk that could change their life significantly for the better. When we remove risk, we also remove the reward. With risk removal, there is a cost and it is usually the reduction of the ROI you will get from taking a leap toward your vision and greater purpose. Zachary Babcock understands the gain that happens when you put yourself out there, commit to personal development, but stay true to your value and do the right thing by others.
    Zach is back on the 365 Driven podcast for the third time for a fun and candid conversation with Tony about why hustle culture is outdated, why revenue doesn’t matter, and why critical thinkers are hard to come by nowadays. Both Zach and Tony think back to when they began their personal development journeys and the lessons they learned getting to where they are now. Both of them have made tremendous strides in improving how to communicate with others and get their message out to the world. Zach served 5 years in prison before building his brand, and Tony went from being terrified of public speaking, to now being an award-winning speaker, delivering his message on stages all over the world. 
    Showing up consistently, letting go of what other people might think, and following your gut, are key to reaching your potential. Zach shares the habits that he focuses on each and every day that led to him being able to help people build a celebrity brand and explosive business with his top-rated podcast, Underdog Empowerment.
    Key highlights:
    Zach’s background of rehab, trauma, and prison and how he turned his life around by putting in the work every day Tony’s vision for the 365 Driven brand Too many people are not focusing on the long game and building something meaningful Focus on serving people and helping people and success and money will follow Purpose is fluid and changes with age Why time feels like it goes faster as we get older Why critical thinking is becoming rare What does it mean to be a thought leader? What Zach and Tony have learned from podcasting How to be a better storyteller Tony’s story about being terrified of public speaking and how he overcame it Is your purpose strong enough to not care about haters and people that criticize?  Consistency over time: Show up consistently and get the results that come with that For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode278

    Find Your Freedom - with Tony Whatley

    Find Your Freedom - with Tony Whatley

    Are you living in freedom? Financial freedom, time freedom, location freedom, and mental freedom are goals that we should be striving for, but what does that look like? Tony broke each of these down in his speech at the Cash Profit Live event hosted by Tyler McBroom in West Palm Beach, FL on November 9, 2022.
    Financial freedom isn’t just about how much money you make, but more about the ability to control what comes in and knowing how to acquire more if that is what you desire. It is not relying on a job in which we have no control over how much we make but instead creating an income for ourselves that is limitless. While it is true that money won’t buy happiness or fulfillment, it can give you more of your time.
    Time is valuable. We are only given one life and we get to decide how we spend it. We can’t manage time, but we can learn to manage our tasks. Tony shares his tips to guard your time without being overwhelmed with a bunch of to-do lists. Learn to prioritize the tasks that will move the needle forward not only in your work but also in your personal life. Making time for what is important to you outside of your work, is also key.
    Location freedom means being able to travel and work when and where suits your life best. Maybe you are tired of commuting and spending a large amount of your time in an office and not having the time to take vacations when you want. Entrepreneurship can allow the freedom to take time away when you want, and choose your work location. 
    Mental freedom comes after realizing that we are not put on this Earth to please everyone. Tony shares his near-death experience and the new perspective on life that he was able to walk away with. Mental freedom is about not requiring anyone else’s approval, knowing your life's purpose, and going after it despite any fears. Fear and confidence are both imaginary, and you decide which one you want to live with.
    Key highlights:
    Put passion and purpose before profit and provide value to as many people as possible Do the right thing not the easy thing ABC: Action, belief, consistency - in that order Tony‘s advice to guard time for things that are important without getting overwhelmed with everything  What it means to be a thought leader Tony’s near-death experience and what he learned from it Put your purpose above your fears because our time is too valuable to waste For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode277

    High-Performance Leadership - with Dr. Jamie Meyer

    High-Performance Leadership - with Dr. Jamie Meyer

    Spending several years getting a degree or working your way up a certain company, doesn’t mean you can’t eventually pivot away from that industry to try something new that you might enjoy more. A lot of times, people get caught up in what Tony calls a “sunk cost fallacy” and they think that because they invested time or money into something, that going a different direction would be a waste, but that isn’t true. You can’t get the time or money back, so don’t be afraid to take the knowledge and lessons you learned, and switch gears to something that makes you happy and better fits your lifestyle. Today’s guest did just that and went from being a medical doctor to working in the car industry.
    Dr. Jamie Meyer has served on the SEMA Board of Directors since 2018, and has taken the role as President of the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) trade show and media company. Jamie has a long history in motorsports and racing, and will lead the PRI team in increasing engagement and support for the industry through enhanced programs and services for the motorsports community. He recently left a very successful 15-year career at General Motors, where he served as the Advanced Performance Parts program manager, the performance marketing manager, as well as several marketing and advertising roles.
    In this episode of the 365 Driven Podcast, Dr. Jamie Meyers shares his journey of pivoting from the medical industry to cars, and his advice for people that are scared of transitioning from one industry to another. Jamie urges leaders to not be afraid to make mistakes but to make sure to learn from them. Jamie and Tony discuss recent changes in the car industry and offer advice to those looking to get involved with this industry. Tune in for more.

    Selling With Integrity - with Shawn French

    Selling With Integrity - with Shawn French

    For many of us growing up, it was instilled in us to watch out for salespeople because of the stigma around them that all they want to do is get your money and they don’t actually care about what you want. It is often hard to undo these ideas that were passed down to us as children, but the truth is that real salespeople are not sleazy or just trying to make a sale. A good salesperson knows how to listen to what their customer needs, and can make suggestions based on what is best for the customer and not the salesperson. In this episode, Shawn French shares massive value with tips on how to sell with integrity.
    Shawn French is an author and sales performance coach that has had a high level of success in the corporate sales environment. Throughout his career, he has discovered the main driver in his performance over the years. He does what he needs to do on a consistent basis, whereas others give up and go home when things get hard. Shawn's mission is to educate other sales professionals and sales organizations that their habits and intentional activity are paramount in their sales success. Shawn went from broke to high 6-figures in 6 months and now he's on a mission to help others create the same results.
    People fail to realize that our entire life is sales and we are constantly selling ourselves whether we realize it or not. Shawn addresses the common objections that salespeople usually get from potential customers, and how to counteract them without being pushy or overwhelming the other person. He says that “no” should not be feared. Not putting yourself out there enough is what you should fear. Don’t be afraid of objections, but instead learn to view them as buying signals and be a great enough active listener that you can counteract their struggles and become someone they can trust to solve their problems. 
    Key highlights:
    Why is there a stigma or icky feeling around sales? People fail to realize that our entire life is selling How to handle situations where you are not sure if you can meet their needs Strong characteristics for someone to be in sales If you focus on the activity and not the goal, you will reach success faster How many touches are needed to make a sale? The importance of the follow-up What most people tend to overlook when they get into sales Learn the scripts but make them your own How to overcome objections The importance of active listening to counteract customer struggles How to get invited to bigger rooms  What you need to know before trying to get as a guest on someone’s podcast For resources and links mentioned in this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode273
