    #48: From Bulimic Marine to Digital Marketing Lighthouse | George Bryant

    George Bryant is a NY Times bestselling author, podcast host and the highest paid digital marketing consultant in the world for his Relationships Beat Algorithms approach to business.  


    How grateful are you for the hardships and traumas in your life?


    This is the mother of all GFR episodes, y’all. Not only is it record-breaking in length, but the diversity of struggle that this one human went through on his way to building 8, 9 and even 10-figure businesses is un-freakin’-believable. 


    Drug addicted parents, childhood sexual trauma, leaving home at 16, battling with bulimia and narcotic-dependence as an active-duty marine, suffering a stint in a wheelchair … George has been through it all and you will never believe how genuinely grateful he is for every bit of it.


    In this episode, you’ll hear the story of George’s journey, healing, and the wisdom he earned from his perspective as the authentic, self-aware entrepreneur, father, and husband he has become.


    Plus, we’re including a bonus bit of training we usually reserve for our GFR SQUAD members.


    Break it up if you have to, but be sure to listen to the full episode to hear how he went from all this struggle to being the digital marketing powerhouse he is today.

Keeping it real...

I love how raw and real Lisa keeps it. Not only is the reoccuring messaging that of being in one's power but she also talks about being in our hearts while in business. I love the balance of the show between authenticity, caring and savvy business minded. The content on the show will be valuable for just about anyone regardless of where someone is at in their lives.
