Ep. 14 Trevor Byron Breaks Down How He's Made Money From Stocks, Sports Cards, Sneakers, Fashion and His Clothing Brand Awoken Dreams
Trevor Byron started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 13 and he's only expanded his income since then! It began when him and his friends camped outside of a sneaker store to wait to buy a "What the Lebron" shoe. He was offered double what he paid right when he walked out of the store and he continued to wait in line and flip the shoe until he had done it 8 times and made a ton of profit.
Since then Trevor has gotten into many different industries, including the fashion industry. He has tons of social media followers and always has some exclusive designer clothes for sale. This was a natural expansion from shoes because his customers obviously care how they look and are interested in designer clothes as well.
Trevor also spent quarantine researching and improving his stock portfolio. He prefers to buy and hold for the long term, but he also has an account that he uses to trade options occasionally. He posts this stuff on his social media too and if you're quick enough you can make some money by following Trevor's picks.
Another industry that Trevor has tapped into recently is sports cards. This is a super interesting industry and Trevor and his brother have both made some serious money from buying low and selling high. We talk more about how he got into sports cards and what his strategy looks like.
The final and one of the most exciting ventures Trevor has taken on is starting his own clothing brand. Awoken Dreams is Trevor's clothing brand and the link for the website is below: https://awokendreams.shop/collections/all
The site is only opened for limited time, so check the Awoken Dreams Instagram below to see when they are releasing their next drop: https://www.instagram.com/awoken__dreams/

Ep. 13 The Importance Of Being A Mission Based Entrepreneur with Kuda Biza
In this episode I interview Kuda Biza who is the founder of Nunbelievable, a baked goods company with a mission to feed the hungry. For every box of cookies they sell, they donate a meal to a person in need.
Kuda started his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 9 in his home country of Zimbabwe. He wanted money to buy ice cream, but his mother wouldn't give in to his ice cream dreams. He decided to take it into his own hands and started washing windows around his neighborhood to make some money. Eventually, he had done the whole neighborhood and had plenty of money to buy ice cream whenever he desired.
Kuda went on to start 7 companies in his life so far and has always been a mission based entrepreneur. When he was in college, he started a company with $150 dollars that ended up feeding thousands of children in Africa. The importance of giving back is evident in Kuda's life and it's just as clear in his newest venture Nunbelievable.

Kuda also wrote a book called "The S.P.E.A.R Method: 5 Simple Steps to Balanced Success and Fulfillment" which you can check out at the link below.

Ep. 12 Beating Brain Cancer And Becoming A Best Selling Author With No Business Plan with Matt Newman
In this episode I interview Matt Newman, a financial planning expert, public speaker, father, best selling author and brain cancer survivor. Matt's story is super inspiring and he has a mentality that everyone can learn a lot from!
Matt became a financial planning expert after college and was super successful in the wholesaling of financial services. His passion is making sure everyone is prepared for the worst case scenario when it comes to their finances. If you were to get sick, would your wife and kids be taken care of? He helps people with this responsibility to their families and makes sure they are ready for anything!
One day Matt got in a car crash and he walked away from it and all was good... he thought. That night and over the next few days, he had pains in his head that were excruciating! He went to the hospital and was told he had a 'lesion' on a lobe of his brain. He did not know that the word 'lesion' meant brain tumor, until days later and that was when he found out he had brain cancer. He had it surgically removed and went through chemo therapy and radiation and has been cancer free for almost 8 years!
While Matt was fighting his cancer, he would write whenever he got overwhelmed and needed to vent. He started sending out emails to his friends and within a few weeks his email list had grown to thousands of people. He didn't try to grow this list, he just people ask if they could add people and it snowballed super fast!
This was the same strategy he used for his book that he wrote! The book is called 'Starting at the Finish Line" and he wrote it with no marketing plan. He just wrote from a real perspective and people loved the raw nature of the book and it was #1 in 4 categories on Amazon!
Matt really breaks down his story in this episode and dives deep into his mindset and his passions. You can reach Matt at the link below:
