    Part 2 of the interview with Chris Marhefka

    Part 2 of the interview with Chris Marhefka

    Part 2 of the interview with Chris Marhefka, we talk more about his current role at CEO of Training Camp for the Soul. 
    This program was that thing that changed Chris’ life in 2019, he was a client initially and is now CEO with the founder of the business. This program is to teach how to create real transformation in your life.
    It teaches the client how to see their lives like a movie, you may be the main character, but this course teaches you to maybe be the writer or producer of the movie. This is a powerful activity to view your life in a different way. 
    Whether it is relationships, purpose, work, health, self-confidence, or self-judgement Chris can rewrite the programming in our life. We inherit a lot of this from our parents, or culture or government, or religion but the belief that this isn’t fixed. 
     Chris talks about the role of the inner child in your life. Your understanding of life is very personal and based on your inner child. 
    We then talk about the role of masculinity as a positive - protector or negatively – destroyer. 
    One practical exercise to do now is to slow your breath down, not full mediation but slowing the breath down. This can regulate your nervous system, and it can tell your body that it is safe. It can give you space to reset the switch to rest rather than stress. 
    This is a fascinating conversation about transforming your life.

    Chris Marhefka, who is CEO at Training Camp for the Soul - Part 1

    Chris Marhefka, who is CEO at Training Camp for the Soul - Part 1

    A feature length episode with Chris Marhefka, who is CEO at Training Camp for the Soul. This is a two-part episode, first episode about Chris’ education and business career and the second one is more about his current role. 
    Chris started a degree in finance and business, which was a default major, not knowing his true path. At graduation he was planning a corporate career but in 2008 the job was removed, and he had no career. He then joined a local wealth management business but didn’t enjoy the suit environment, so he left without a plan. 
    He knew he wanted to start a business, so he started a gym, Chris enjoyed helping people, leading groups, personal training and grew this into a business. He built it as a tribe by organically growing and making connections with his fit family. 
    Chris then started a meal preparation business which rocketed. He created the business with a proof of concept, then a website and had paid customers in 7 days. He then started business coaching, but his story changed when he was married. 
    For 2 years Chris felt he was missing something from his life and had no fulfilment in his business. He attended the Training Camp for the Soul course and was taught to gain control of his life. Chris and his wife went around the USA in a RV. Through the journey he felt his relationship with his wife was going in a different direction. Both parties didn’t want to be in a relationship and not be their true self. This was massive forgiveness time for both of them. Chris felt he needed lightness, a slower pace in life, and play in his life. His life needed to base on passion not obligation.  
    Chris and his wife broke up and started different projects. This podcast was massively powerful for me, it made me think about my life, purpose, and fulfilment. This can bring change in your life too.  
    Chris is now creating his own light in his life!

    A feature length interview with John Briggs, founder of Incite Tax.

    A feature length interview with John Briggs, founder of Incite Tax.  We start with his business which does a few different things including help grow wealth by tax saving, cashflow management and bookkeeping. John has found in his experience entrepreneurs often want to ignore tax and cashflow. John explains that he thinks we are conditioned that tax is too complicated, so they ignore it.
    John has written the book called Profit first for Micro-gyms and he employs the Profit First for his business and his clients. 
    Incite Tax has a mission to give entrepreneurs work life balance without burn out. We discuss the importance to have an accountant and tax advisor for an entrepreneur’s business. 
    We then talk about his job experience, his first job he worked for a greedy and lazy employer. They spent all their income on expenses, there were no boundaries on their cash. His second role was fascinating to see how not to run a business. These two stories will be powerful, I promise.
