    How to Grow a Business, Even if It's Not in the Most Glamorous Market - Ft. Bryan Clayton

    How to Grow a Business, Even if It's Not in the Most Glamorous Market - Ft. Bryan Clayton

    Bryan Clayton shared with us several solid tips that led to his massive and ongoing success with GreenPal.  

    Before starting GreenPal Bryan Clayton founded Peachtree Inc. one of the largest landscaping companies in the state of Tennessee growing it to over $10 million a year in annual revenue.

    GreenPal, being called the "Uber for lawn care" by Entrepreneur magazine, is an awesome mobile app that helps homeowners connect with the right lawn care professional nearest to them. So not only are homeowners getting easier access to people that can help them with their yards, but lawn care businesses are also benefiting greatly from this app with increased business!

    One of the great tips Bryan shared in this episode was to "celebrate the small things". In the beginning stages of the app, he set a goal with his team to make 100 sales in a week to prove to themselves that growing the business was not only possible, but realistic. When they reached that goal, they went crazy with the celebration as if they had just won a Nobel Prize. They have since grown the business so much larger and GreenPal now has over 300,000 active users!

    This is just one of many tips Bryan shared with us, check out this episode to hear more!

    Mental Health, Drug Addiction, and the Road to Recovery - a Conversation with Jake Shoff

    Mental Health, Drug Addiction, and the Road to Recovery - a Conversation with Jake Shoff

    Founder of The Phoenix Recovery Center, Jake Shoff has seen his fair share of lemons in his lifetime. He told us about how his current pursuits and goals to bless people's lives have all stemmed from the tragic loss of Josh, one of his closest college friends, to an addiction and mental health issues.

    After our Lemonade Stand team recently just finished reading "Personality Isn't Permanent" by Benjamin Hardy, this conversation with Jake was perfectly timed. He is a prime example of what we learned in Benjamin's book --> your past doesn't happen TO you, but rather your past happens FOR you.

    We are sincerely grateful for Jake's time and his willingness to share his stories and hope to be able to share this to as many people as possible!

    If you or a loved one are struggling with mental health or drug addiction, please don't hesitate to ask for help. Like Jake says in this episode, there's no shame in getting help, just call (801) 438-3185

    Check out the Phoenix Recovery Center's blog, they have tons of helpful information and "how-to's" on the topic!

    Russ Warner, Partner of Ghost Boards, on overcoming his work addiction

    Russ Warner shares his origins of how Ghost Boards came into this world and what he had to do to repair some family relationships from it.

    If you've witnessed these see-through longboards, you'll know what we're talking about! Go check out their website and Instagram page to see some examples really quick:

    https://www.instagram.com/ghostlongboard/?hl=en

    Russ Warner is a genuine guy. Growing up with divorced parents, he developed a great work ethic. In fact, it was too great. He was addicted to work, sometimes working several jobs and insane hours. 

    This addiction wasn't all bad, it definitely provided for the family, but at what cost? 

    Time. Precious time.

    It was an absolute pleasure to have Russ Warner in the studio with us. The greatest lesson we learned from our conversation with him is how valuable our time is here. Spend it wisely and with the people you love!

    Hope you love this episode as much as we did!

    Side note, if you've loved the awesome longboards they make, Russ announced that Ghost Boards is going to be releasing something spectacular in the near future, check out the episode to hear more!

    Yahosh and Oba Bonner on How Faith Fuels Their Family, Their Dreams, and Their Lives

    Yahosh and Oba Bonner on How Faith Fuels Their Family, Their Dreams, and Their Lives

    For over 30 years the Bonner family has been singing together. We had the privilege of speaking with two of them in our studio!

    Yahosh and Oba are two brothers in the famous Bonner family. If you haven't heard them sing before, you need to stop what you are doing right now, go to their Youtube channel or Spotify channel, and let their angelic voices sweep over you for a couple minutes.

    The bond that Yahosh and Oba share as brothers is almost tangible it's so strong. The stories they shared about their family leads us to believe that the same goes for the whole family.

    Both brothers have their own music apart from the songs they sing with the family. Check out their solo stuff!

    Yahosh Bonner: Spotify / Youtube

    Oba Bonner: Spotify / Youtube

    It was a pleasure getting to spend time with these two, I hope you enjoy this chat as much as we did! 

    P.S. stay tuned to the end, they shared a little surprise!

Amazing, inspiring podcast

Charan is a wonderful host of this amazing podcast. Each week I am inspired to be greater and do better as I listen to it on my drive to work. I’ve discovered a few of my personal heroes thanks to this podcast. Crazy that such wonderful people might be brushing past you in the street or living right next door to you! Love this!

Genuine show telling the stories the world needs to hear more of

I love this podcast for 2 reasons:

1st - Charan Prabhakar is an excellent host - he asks great questions, focuses on the guest and doesn’t overwhelm the show with his own thoughts - rather he highlights what the guest brings to the show.

2nd - The stories that are shared are truly good and inspiring episodes, I always leave uplifted, hopeful, and motivated.

In a world full of podcasts, this one rises above the rest.
