    Ever wondered how someone turns their biggest setback into their most significant breakthrough?

    In today’s episode, I'm joined by Aaron Lambert, a real estate investor and entrepreneur with a story that’s nothing short of a rollercoaster ride. From facing a four-year prison sentence to emerging as a business powerhouse in Las Vegas, Aaron's journey is a testament to the transformative power of a positive mindset and a clear vision.

    "I've already had the biggest setback in my life, which was going to prison... But knowing that I'm going to succeed is something that's become very dear to my heart."

    We dive into the often-hidden realities of entrepreneurship – stripping away the social media glamour to reveal the grit, setbacks, and hard work that pave the road to genuine success. Aaron’s story highlights how crucial systems and processes are in business, turning challenges into opportunities for growth, efficiency, and scalability.

    But that’s just scratching the surface. We also explore how parental influence and educational choices, like homeschooling, shape the entrepreneurial spirit from a young age. And as we dive into the world of AI and its impact on business, Aaron reminds us that no amount of technology can replace the unique human touch.

    Join us as Aaron shares his inspiring journey, showcasing that no matter how tough the setbacks, with the right mindset and vision, you can build a path to success that is uniquely yours.

    His story from a prison cell to real estate success highlights the essential role of a positive mindset, the hard work behind entrepreneurship, and the importance of efficient systems in business.

    "You can learn anything and everything that you want, but you're not going to go anywhere unless you take action."

    Get ready for an episode that's not just inspiring but packed with hard-hitting truths about resilience, vision, and the real hustle behind successful entrepreneurship. This is one transformational journey you don’t want to miss!

    Key Takeaways:
    The power of a positive mindset and clear vision can drive successful outcomes, even from adverse situations.
    Entrepreneurship is glamorized on social media, overshadowing the hard work and setbacks many face on their path to success.
    Systems and processes are crucial in business to facilitate growth, efficiency, and scalability.
    Parental influence and education choices, such as homeschooling, play a significant role in a child's development, particularly in an entrepreneurially-minded household.

    Shattering Societal Labels: Lana Chairez on Stripping, Comedy & Authenticity

    Shattering Societal Labels: Lana Chairez on Stripping, Comedy & Authenticity

    Hey Fit & Frugal Tribe! 

    Have you ever imagined the behind-the-scenes stories a stripper might have about the Secret Service?

    I'm so f*cking stoked I get to sit down with the one and only Lana Chairez – she's a stand-up comedian, host of the "Laughing with Lana" podcast, a former stripper, and an engineer, all rolled into one! She's not just funny; she's a powerhouse with a story that flips the script on societal norms.

    Lana and I dive deep into what it means to live authentically in a world that's constantly trying to box us in as we ripe off the societal labels and diving into what it really means to chase your own version of happiness.

    Here's the scoop: It's not all about fitting into the box society has built for us. Lana's past as a stripper? It's a part of her story that challenges every stereotype and judgment you've ever heard.

    We get real about the entertainment industry and hospitality world, where external perceptions often clash with internal happiness. Lana shares how her past as a stripper shaped her identity and perception in society on labels and judgment.

    From t*ts to titles, we reflect on the pursuit of authenticity and how societal status often overshadows our true selves.

    In the world of self-improvement, we sometimes have to ask ourselves...."When you feel that you have to do something to better yourself, are you bettering it for yourself, or are you bettering yourself for society? Because there's a difference."

    This episode isn't just a conversation; it's an experience! Lana and I prove that laughter can be the best way to cope with life's challenges and how we turn some of our traumas into humorous ways to connect with others.

    At the end of the day, "Just be happy. You yourself need to be happy. Don't please other people, because that shit, you're going to live a fucked up and horrible, miserable f*****g life."

    Ask yourself this: Are you living your truth, or just following society's script?

    If you found a piece of yourself in our stories, or had a good laugh during your journey of authenticity and breaking societal molds, don't stop here.

    Head over to our website for more episodes that will challenge, inspire, and empower you. Hit subscribe, leave us a review if you loved what you heard, and share this episode with someone who needs to hear it.

    From Startups to Sacrifices: Allan Draper on Entrepreneurship, Mortality & Legacy

    From Startups to Sacrifices: Allan Draper on Entrepreneurship, Mortality & Legacy

    Hey Fit & Frugal Tribe!

    What does it take to build not one, not two, but 29 successful businesses?

    I just had one of the most mind-blowing conversations ever with Allan Draper, a serial entrepreneur from Phoenix, Arizona. His journey from a litigation attorney to owning 29 businesses ranging from home services and digital marketing to real estate investments, is nothing short of epic.

    He's living proof (not to be confused with his pest control business) that the entrepreneurial spirit is a force to be reckoned with.

    Allan is a storyteller who brings the world of entrepreneurship to life in his successful podcast, “The Business Growth Pod.” He’s got this uncanny ability to analyze and scale small businesses, transforming them into multimillion-dollar ventures.

    "If you don't believe in your heart of hearts that you're worthy of it, you're not going to do what it takes to go get it."

    In today's episode, Allan gets real with us. We dive deep into what it truly takes to build wealth and the kind of sacrifices that come with it. He's not just talking theory; he's lived every bit of this  expansive journey.
     
    "Failure is such a strong word...we need to change our mentality about failure."

    He sheds light on the often-misunderstood societal realm of entrepreneurship – it's not a one-size-fits-all journey, and certainly not the cakewalk social media often paints it to be. From the significance of a wealth-building mindset to embracing failures as critical learning curves, Allan's insights are both grounding and invigorating.

    And then we get into the real juicy stuff – legacy and making a difference. Spoiler alert: We're all going to die.

    Allan's not just about making money; he's passionate about helping others achieve financial freedom. It's about the long game, choosing the right sacrifices, understanding what's an asset and what's a liability.

    So, if you're sitting there, dreaming of starting your own thing or scaling up what you've got, you need to hear this. It's a conversation that could change the way you think about business, wealth, and success.

    Key Takeaways:
    Entrepreneurship isn't just about chasing success; it's about recognizing your unique journey and battling societal norms.
    Allan debunks the 'easy path' myth of entrepreneurship, stressing its challenges and the need for a solid mindset.
    The real wealth-building journey intertwines personal growth with financial development.
    Embracing failure is essential; it's a teacher more potent than any immediate win.
    The episode also dives deep into legacy, mortality, and the pressing need to create something lasting.
