    E104: What Influencers SHOULD Be with Ryan King

    E104: What Influencers SHOULD Be with Ryan King

    Ryan King joins us today with On The Edge Podcast. Ryan comes to us at the recommendation of my friend Matt Beadreau, who we have also interviewed on the show! Ryan started a tech company called Guardian Payments and was able to retire at age 35 based on the success of the company. He now focuses on being a good role model. 



    After retiring, Ryan couldn’t stop working which is where the calling to be a good role model came out. He now spends his time spreading the word on being better people instead of focusing on the doom and gloom that the internet seems to be obsessed with these days. 



    Join us for a great hour of conversation all about being a better person, the problem with the internet, how to solve it, who are role models and who aren’t, and more!

    E103: Josh Painter NEW BOOK Best Version Ever - The Podcast!

    One of my best friends Josh Painter is here to talk about his new book, Best Version Ever! Josh has been hosting an annual mastermind of the same name for 6 years now and it’s time to share those ideas with the masses in a book! Join us today as we go over the basic principles of the book and get an excellent preview of what to expect! 



    Order the book TODAY!: https://amzn.to/3AlbNRm



    In his own words: Josh Painter is a husband, father, leader, coach, speaker, philanthropist, and the author of the book “Best Version Ever.”



    Josh founded the Best Version Ever Community after realizing that most people live a life that others expect of them, not a life true to themselves. Unfortunately, he lived this same life, moving from one job to the next, barely getting by, and at one point almost losing everything. 



    Since becoming his own Best Version Ever, Josh built and sold a successful real estate company, started a charity organization, and lives his Best Version Ever by helping others crush their goals and reach their full potential in all areas of life.

    E102: The Business of Disaster Preparedness with Gringo Strategic

    E102: The Business of Disaster Preparedness with Gringo Strategic

    Today we’re interviewing Les Leslie, who runs a company called Gringo Strategic. Les trains people on being prepared for the uncertainties in life, many of which were brought to the forefront of our culture during the pandemic. Self preservation training is central to his company and life, helping people to be self sufficient independent from our countries supply chain. 



    I get it, a few years ago you probably would have thought somebody like Les is waiting for a zombie apocalypse that is never going to happen, but now we all know that there’s merit in being ready for anything. Join us for a fascinating conversation about being prepared for anything while keeping sane at the same time. 



    Gringo Strategic is: A think tank committed to the research, development, dissemination, and application of strategies and tactics to survive the American decline by resurrecting decentralized and networked communities. This mission is advanced by the work of an Advisory Cell and through Ars Gringo membership; a closed-door, nexus of like-minded men, working to restore and maintain prosperity in their local communities.





    4:12 - How has the mentality toward preparedness changed?

    8:25 - What qualifies you to train this? Why do you do it?

    17:10 - Scotts levels of preparedness

    28:00 - Did nobody see this coming?

    33:11 - US dollar is still the reserve currency worldwide

    38:40 - What does your training look like?

    43:06 - What do you train for that happens in real life?
