    In the 70th episode of Be Real, I will be joined by Cody May, the CEO of Studio PTBO, a full service marketing and coaching business that helps real estate agents & entrepreneurs attract more leads, book appointments, and convert those leads to clients.


    Cody is a grounded and very mature individual for his age and has a very inspiring journey. He grew up with a religious Christian family, and he took up Theology when he decided he wanted to be a pastor. He wanted to be a youth pastor and help teenagers live good life. 


    He had to move to a different city to continue his Theology studies and work at the same time. He was working at Future Shop, a Canadian electronics store chain where he was a cellphone salesman. Then in his fourth year in Theology, he traveled a lot and he started questioning things. He realized that the world is a lot bigger, and it changed his ideologies and shifted his perspective.


    He found a mentor and he wrote down what he said, modeled what he did, and mirrored what he said. Cody was a hardworking student and knows what he wants. He is a learner by heart and is always hungry for more. He is a firm believer that self-growth is the best investment a person could make, so he encourages everyone to do the same. He reached where he is now because of his willingness to learn, his heart to help others, and of course, his parents who supported him all the way.


    If there’s one thing I’d like you to listen to, it’s his passion to grow and make others grow. I am truly honored to interview such a badass entrepreneur.



    Make sure you listen to these tracks:


    01:22 - Growing up in a religious Christian family and studying Theology


    06:00 - The huge shift of perspective


    07:50 - “I wanted to be a youth pastor. I wanted to help teenagers live a good life.”


    18:44 - Got his first sales job and started selling phones

    In the 68th episode of Be Real, I will be joined by Sean O’Rourke, a coach, speaker, and the owner of Bearded Property Investors and Simple Home Exitz. He is also the founder of the 90 Days To Escape Your 9-5.
    Sean is a cool hustler and has an inspiring rags to riches story. He lived a crazy abusive life when his parents split up, and lived with an alcoholic stepfather. He dropped out of high school and his life had no direction. The things that happened in his life placed him in the path of negativity, and he grew tired of it.
    Trying to fix his life, he decided to go back to school and got a 2-year diploma on Associates Degree. He got into a manufacturing company where he worked as a maintenance man and worked his way up to becoming the plant manager at the age of 28. He was making good money and earning 90 grand per year, but still hit rock bottom. He lived from paycheck to paycheck because his earnings are set for his bills.
    He had a huge shift in mindset, and he wanted to know how to make money in Real Estate, so educated himself by watching YouTube videos. He invested his Real Estate profits on masterminds, mentorship, and networking. He wanted to be surrounded by people who know more about the business and learn how to invest. And since then, he realized how much time he wasted with the wrong mindset he’s had most of his life. With the major shift in mindset, he went from zero to 36 sales in RE.
    If there are things I’d like you to listen to, it’s his wisdom, perseverance, and mindset, which made him an 8-figure business owner. I am truly honored to have had this opportunity to interview such an inspiring man.
    Make sure you listen to these tracks:
    02:58 - Living a crazy abusive life
    03:32 - Living in negativity
    08:19 - The major mindset shift
    09:44 - Investing in self-growth
    10:22 - “I’ve wasted 15-18 years of my life with the wrong mindset of how truly you’re supposed to live. It was all because I wasn’t taught.”
    15:10 - “We can all hustle and make money, but the honest true value is the time you can’t get back.”
    38:23 - How consistency became the key

    In the 68th episode of Be Real, I will be joined by Zach Mathers, a recovery life coach, speaker, and the founder of Braving The Journey. He is helping people realign their lives and be the best that they can be.


    In this episode, we are going to talk about life rebuilding, and the best ways to convert bad habits into good ones. Zach is someone that has always chased his dreams. At a young age, he started a non-profit organization filming stories of suffering in injustice around the world to help bring exposure to situations no one was aware of. This helped shift his worldview and have more love and compassion for others around him. Zach has always sought to encourage others and help them live out their full potential. 


    Along the road of helping others, Zach found himself struggling with alcohol and the shame attached to it. He dove into counseling and a road of discovering the roots behind his addiction and the resources he needed to stay sober. Through that journey he had to address the shame he felt from his actions in life. Realizing the paralyzing power of shame Zach now works to coach others and bring hope to people that are stuck in their own shame and addictions. 


    Zach now takes what he has learned in his recovery and coaches people toward sobriety and changing their lives. He believes that everyone needs to look at the root of the problem. Zach has crafted a unique way to guide people to discover their true identity and help coach them in becoming free and living into their identity. 


    Make sure you listen to these tracks:


    02:54 - Started building his life at the age of 21
    05:58 - In denial of needing help
    15:22 - Start of drinking habits
    18:20 - Created a sobriety program for himself
    21:22 - Reasons why people drink
    24:31 - “Alcohols are depressants by nature”
    33:13 - “If I want to make a change in something, I don’t wanna look at the end results of the change. I’m gonna look at the very small and almost insignificant moment of something I do today”

    In the 67th episode of Be Real, I will be joined by Adrienne Jezick, the Co-founder of Morzoko Forge, and a badass woman.  She has coached thousands of plunges and helped other people to cure their illnesses.

    Ready to get rid of your chronic pains and illnesses? Tune in! 
    In this episode, we are going to talk about health and wellness. Her journey started when she was 32 years old, and her health suddenly went down. She went to various doctors and specialists, but nothing fixed her. In the first two years of being sick, she was diagnosed with 3 separate auto-immune conditions which include Hashimoto Thyroiditis and Eosinophilic Esophagitis. And in the third year of being sick, she gained 50lbs and had anxiety and depression. Her life became dependent on prescription pills, vitamins, and supplements where she takes more than 20 pills per day. She also needs 2 live antibody shots every month. She was told that she would die if she skipped her medications. 
    She tried to do an ice bath and made it a regular thing. She has not felt any of the symptoms that she’s had for years. She went back to her Endocrinologist and all her blood proved that her Hashimoto's condition had disappeared. Even her doctor was shocked because what she had was incurable. She made a remarkable recovery from Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, which was (until now) thought to be a permanent and degenerative condition. Her medical doctors had prescribed drugs and exhorted her to take them for the rest of her life, under the penalty of premature death. She has stopped her medications, and her health is better than ever. She is cured!
    If there are things I’d like you to listen to, it’s her courage to do whatever it takes to be healthy and live a normal life. She is determined to fight her diseases and never loses hope. I am grateful for the opportunity to interview such a fighter!
    Make sure you listen to these tracks:
    02:10 - How her wellness journey started
    03:42 - “Ice bath was my last resort”
    09:44 - “It all starts with: What are you feeding?”
    10:28 - “I don’t believe in diet. I believe in food regimens and lifestyle changes”
    15:21 - Let’s talk about food
    25:18 - Importance of testosterones
    29:15 - Disadvantages of being a vegan
    35:05 - Tips in trying ice bath and how to improvise

    In the 66th episode of Be Real, I will be joined by Christian D. Evans, an elite coach for coaches, consultants, service providers, network marketers, and E-commerce business owners. We are going to have a deep talk about growth, life transformation, building a business, and having a kick-ass mindset to overcome adversities. He built a 7-figure business that is focused on helping other people.


    Just like other successful entrepreneurs, Christian has also been through a lot of failures before reaching where he is today. He believes that one of the biggest factors for his success is his mindset. He has a very positive outlook in life and always sees the silver lining even in the worst situations. A couple of years ago, he was a totally different person, and he was the type of person you would see as bound for failure. He was once addicted to pornography and used to steal credit cards. His life was a complete mess, then he realized that he needed to change.


    In this episode, he will tell us how he got over his old habits, how he stood up to make a change, and influence others to be better each day. This episode will also make you realize the bad habits you are unconsciously doing, and the probable reasons why you are not thriving in your business.


    If there are things I’d like you to listen to, it’s his determination to own his mistakes, and the strength to stand up whenever he stumbles down. I truly admire his passion for helping others be their best and his positive mindset. I am grateful for the opportunity to interview such a great human being. 



    Make sure you listen to these tracks:
    02:33 - The fall of Christian
    14:12 - Keeping a growth mindset
    15:42 - Questions to ask yourself in starting and sustaining a business
    19:20 - Importance of investing in yourself
    28:42 - Making good decisions
    37:20 - Taking advantage of the Covid pandemic
    41:40 - Commitment to self-improvement
    49:21 - Failures and its importance to being whole
    01:03:11 - Building the 7-figure business

    In the 65th episode of Be Real, we will have an in-depth talk about anxiety and mental health with Erin McCullough. We are also going to talk about having more time in our life, how to get over overwhelm, and how to find joy.
    A couple of years ago, Erin suffered from anxiety disorder and panic attacks. She has been through traumas that affected how she sees the world, and her anxiety disorder flipped her world. She can no longer do the things she usually does, like doing a ten-mile run without having panic attacks. She also had to stop working as a Special Education teacher because she passed out once, and doesn't want to cause trauma to the children anymore. Her anxiety held her up for 9 months at home, then she got a call and was recommended to go to a homeopathic psychologist. She had an appointment and after their talk, all her years of trauma were gone. Then she decided to live a simpler life and moved to Hawaii and started a business within 24 hrs, multi 6 figure contract in a year and a half, but the simpler life she wanted didn't happen. Instead of owning the business, her business owned her.
    In this episode, she will share how she overcame her traumas and anxiety through the help of the people around her, and by changing her perception towards things. This episode will make you realize that achieving a joyful heart is simple.
    If there are things I would like you to listen to, it is her positivity and mindset. What she hopes to get across today is to empower people so that they can create a different experience; they do not have to live in fear. I am so honored to have had this opportunity to interview such a brave human being!
    Make sure you listen to these tracks:
    05:16 - "Through the process of re-telling my traumatic childhood stories, I created an anxiety disorder so wouldn't have to feel the emotions of those things that happened
    06:08 - "Anxiety seems very real.. like so real your heart is racing and you literally think you're gonna die"
    09:03 - Anxiety inside us
    15:00 - Fear is an illusion
    21:17 - Happiness vs. joy
    22:04 - “I was addicted to being successful in making money, and I was good at it..... And I was completely miserable.”
    39:27 - Nutrition and mental health
