    E85: How to Become 365 Driven with Tony Whatley

    E85: How to Become 365 Driven with Tony Whatley

    About Tony:

    Tony Whatley became known as “The Side Hustle Millionaire” after his book with the same title became a #1 best-seller on Amazon. But, this book title isn’t just fiction; it is based on his actual story.

    Tony once led a successful corporate career for over 25 years, but that is less interesting than the side-businesses that he created, which generated millions in profit.

    As an active entrepreneur himself, he still owns a few businesses. But, his real passion is teaching entrepreneurs how to start, scale, and sell their business, within his podcast and consulting brand 365 Driven.

    In this episode we discuss:

    Tony's upbringing

    Early Year's in Japan

    Adversity as a kid

    His school attendance record

    Lessons from his Dad

    His Entrepreneurial spirit 

    Creating 365 Driven

    And more!

    E84: An Early Lesson That Changed Everything With Kristin Zhivago

    Kristin Zhivago is the president of Zhivago Partners, a digital marketing management company that serves both B2B and B2C clients in a variety of industries. Her digital agency is comprised of a core infrastructure team, and a variety of specialists in the various digital methods and media. Zhivago’s career began in the high-tech industry; she and her husband, through their high-tech agency, helped introduce and market all of the technologies we take for granted today. When the web emerged as a commercial medium, she branched out into other industries and re-invented herself to become a revenue coach, helping CEOs and entrepreneurs sell the way her customers want to buy. 
    Her 5-star book, Roadmap to Revenue: How to Sell the Way Your Customers Want to Buy was chosen by Forbes as one of the top sales and marketing books. Zhivago speaks frequently on the subject of the customer’s buying process, which she was one of the first to identify as being key to selling to today’s customers, and about building your business to compete effectively in our fast-changing, hyper-competitive markets.
    In this episode we discuss:
    Kristin's upbringing
    An early lesson in sales
    Going to school for music
    What gift her brother gave her

    E82: Get Radical with Liz Edlich

    E82: Get Radical with Liz Edlich

    About Liz:

    As the daughter of world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard F. Edlich, Liz Edlich and her sister Rachel grew up in their father’s labs and were constantly exposed to skin rejuvenation and wound healing. She proceeded to go into the skincare industry and developed around 100 different products for celebrities and television for 10-15 years, alongside Rachel. It wasn’t until the two sisters experienced issues with their own skin that they decided to begin a new venture.

    At the age of 45, Liz Edlich realize that her skin wasn’t the same. She found that “gravity had hit” and wrinkles, hair, hormones and weight all seemed to be out of her control. Additionally, Rachel suddenly began to suffer from rosacea. The sisters then set out on their own mission: to create a skincare product that could be Liz’s anti-ageing solution but was also formulated to heal and cater to Rachel’s sensitive skin.

    Once created, Liz had only used the product for 2 weeks before she found herself inundated with comments from co-workers about what she was using – something that had never happened to her before. Rachel’s rosacea also cleared after 30 days and they knew they were on to something special.

    After testing the product in the lab, they discovered that it outperformed numerous other brands in potency and before they knew it, Radical Skincare was born. Liz is adamant that the products created are only those that are truly needed in the market. She bases her decision for product creation on what she and her friends require and sets out to create a multitasking product to target the issues.

    Her biggest priority is to make a difference, not just to people’s skin, but to their lives. She constantly calls upon her experiences with some of the biggest success coaches in the world and applies that passion to how she can use Radical Skincare to better the lives of others.

    Radical Skincare has now been taken from 2 Barneys stores in New York and Los Angeles to 16 countries and 800 stores. The brand can now be found in Saks Fifth Avenue, Sephora, QVC, Fenwick’s, Harvey Nichols, all Space NK stores and now Harrods – and it only continues to grow.

    In this episode we discuss:


    Liz's upbringing in 
    How passion fueled her
    Her want for Freedom
    Growing up with incredible parents
    Her Father's example
    Working in many roles
    And much more!
