Win_Win Marketing with Tom Poland
My goal is to awaken consciousness particularly around money, business, relationships. Today's conversation is no exception. I'm interviewing my friend Tom Poland who has been a mentor to me over this past year. He has so much good information about things he has covered in his many books that he's written including a more recent one about webinars. But what I love about Tom is his sincerity and his drive for creating consensual sales experiences. And, while we're not going to talk exclusively about that. I just want you to be listening for the fact that Tom wants to be in a relationship, in client relationships with people who are fully showing up in that relationship, who understand that they are coming to him to learn and to grow. There's no funny business. There's no manipulation. There's nothing but the truth. This is the way I feel like all of our sales and marketing needs to be moving in this direction. And Tom is just really inspiring to me when it comes to that. So enjoy this conversation. I'm sure you'll take a lot out of it and I'm just so inspired by Tom's work. Enjoy...
Real Estate Tax Strategies with Brett Swartz
Today, I'm interviewing Brett Swarts. Brett is a specialist in Advanced Real Estate investing, tax-savings strategies, and while this might be advanced for some of you. For those of you, who are interested in real estate investing and also are interested in various ways that you can protect your assets even as a real estate investor, I think you'll find this conversation very enlightening. I also enjoyed listening to Brett talked about the success he'd had in his business and where he's come from and how he got into doing what he does because there's always a story inside of a story. And here, there's the entrepreneurial journey as well as what Brett does to help his clients. Enjoy...
Brett said - You got to blaze the trail, right? To the degree that you're sold on whatever you're selling is to the degree of your effective selling. To the degree you're willing to burn the shifts in a lot of ways and go all in is to the degree that you'll succeed as well. I mean a lot of other factors should go into that. But you know, on these other sides of things now, I get 10 years later plus... and they'll say "Oh you're..." It's not that they say an overnight success. Some people might think "Oh that was easy - no". Let me tell you about the humble beginnings... I'm not sure how many have afforded right away - the rent or what they put on the table...
Brett Swarts is passionate about educating people in Capital Gains Tax Deferral with a Deferred Sales Trust, how to divest from a business or real estate, and gain freedom from feeling hostage to a 1031 exchange, then invest back into a new business venture or investment real estate at any time [all capital gains tax deferred] which he calls optimal timing.

Each year, he equips hundreds of business professionals with the Deferred Sales Trust tool to help their high net worth clients solve capital gains tax deferral limitations. Brett is considered one of the most well-rounded Capital Gains Tax Deferral Experts and informative speakers on the west coast.

Let's do Wealth Building 101 with JL Collins
Today I'm having a conversation with JL Collins, my friend who is the author of "The Simple Path To Wealth". If you don't have yet this book, you are definitely going to want to get a copy. I love it. It's super inspiring - definitely shows you the best way forward if you're looking for a very simple way to invest, to take good care of your financial future. This conversation is a mentor of us going back and forth on Facebook Live and I just thought it would be fun to share this also with you on the podcast. Enjoy...
JL said: "The basic ideas of when most people think about money, they think about what it could buy. Right? They don't think about what it can do. They don't think about how it can be a servant to you - how it can work for you. And that's what I ask people or what I suggest people think about; that it's not just about what money can buy but what money can do for you, the power of putting it to work for you so that it is making money for you. And, at some point, when you have enough of it, this is financial independence. You no longer have to trade your labor for money to meet your expenses...
JL Collins is a financial expert and author of - “The Simple Path to Wealth: Your Road Map to Financial Independence and a Rich, Free Life”, Mr. Collins offers easy-to-understand, effective guidance, and resources to understand investing with confidence.
He spent most of his career in the publishing business, but that is almost completely unimportant. What mattered (to him and now us) was his driving ambition to have F-you Money. Of all the things you can spend money on the most important, he says, is your freedom.
That was a key message he wanted to impart to his daughter and in 2011 he launched his blog, jlcollinsnh.com, as a means of archiving this and other lessons for her. From that humble beginning, much to his surprise, it has grown to the international readership it enjoys today. It is most famous for its Stock Series of posts.
He also believes stocks, specifically broad-based index funds, are far and away from the most powerful wealth-building tool ever created. Moreover, they always go up. Yet most people who invest in them lose money. In his book and on his blog, JL Collins explains this apparent contradiction and teaches readers how to harness the market’s power to grow their personal wealth and achieve their own Financial Independence.

Awakening to Life Mastery with Laurel O'Sullivan
Today, I'm having a conversation with Laurel O'Sullivan. Laurel is a life mastery coach who helps people in engaging in the second chance in their life - fully embracing their lives, living optimally. And, one of the tools she uses is astrology. She's going to be talking about how that has helped her gain context for the life that she's living and how it propels her forward in helping others find their optimal pathway in life. I love this conversation because we're really talking back and forth about some of our life experiences and the realizations that we've had as a result of those and also the context of what's happening with the planets right now. It's not necessarily my specialty but, I tried to keep up with Laurel and it's really, really fun. So, enjoy this conversation. I hope you take lots of magical transformational ideas away from it.
Laurel said - "I always felt like I know so much about myself, yeah, I need to learn about running the business but, I don't understand how the two connect. I don't understand how my own challenges are getting in the way of the business because we just don't have this pattern in one part of our life, we have it in all parts of our life, and I think that's been a huge benefit of being with other entrepreneurial women going through some other journeys where we all can get stuck on our own way but, we're also there to support each other..."
Laurel O’Sullivan is 'The Woman’s Coach' and a visionary advocate who inspires women around the world to live their best lives. She does this by drawing upon the wisdom of astrology to help her clients identify their unique life purpose so that they can live the life they were born to live from a place of total self-acceptance, free from the judgments of the past. Laurel also channels her twenty years of experience as a lawyer and advocate - and her own deeply held wisdom earned from traversing every imaginable type of life transition to help her clients connect with their personal power so they can wield more influence in the world. She lives in Evanston, IL with her husband Tim and their blended family of 5 kids plus their dog, Blue. In her free time, Laurel loves to combine her love for travel and hiking. She has hiked the Grand Canyon, portions of the Appalachian Trail, the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal, Cinque Terre, and Macchu Pichu. Her next challenge is hiking the Camino de Santiago.

Today, I'm interviewing my client Barbara Boldt. She is a specialist when it comes to pitching to mastering the messaging that you use when you are networking. When you're connecting with new people. When you're sharing who you are and how you help others.

This isn't always easy especially when we're doing it for ourselves. I know I've struggled with it for years so I know you'll take away a lot from this conversation. You'll get some questions to be asking yourself and you'll be thinking about how can I be a better communicator in my business so that I can increase how much I earn. Find better clients who are ideally suited to the work that you do. Enjoy...
Barbara said - "We learn new things, we meet new people or maybe we find another group of people who were able to help them we haven't thought about that. So I always talk about a pitch being a living breathing thing. It's never finished, it's never really done. There's a template and we customize it every time we give it depending on the audience."
