    Crafting the Employee Experience with Kent Lewis

    Crafting the Employee Experience with Kent Lewis

    Crafting the Employee Experience 
     
    Take away:
    Developing an abundant mindset centered on gratitude for what you have, rather than lament what's lacking, is key to living a fulfilling life. Balancing business growth with personal fulfillment means defining your "why" and ideal lifestyle, not just chasing endless expansion. Prioritizing employee engagement through efforts like "stay interviews" and enabling people to do what they're passionate about leads to higher profitability and client satisfaction. And instilling financial literacy around passive income streams like real estate from an early age can set a strong foundation for long-term wealth creation.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Kent's parents had purchased a 10-unit apartment building before he was born. While they had modest incomes from their jobs, the rental income and equity buildup from the apartment building provided an additional stream of income and financial security. This taught Kent the value of real estate investments for generating passive income.
    His parents taught him not to rely on Social Security for retirement income, as it may not exist by the time he retires. They emphasized that he would need to create his own wealth and fund his own retirement through savings and investments.
    His uncle's example of buying his first apartment building while in college, and dressing professionally because successful real estate investors dressed that way, also influenced Kent's view of real estate as a path to building wealth from an early age.
     
    Bio:
    Kent Lewis founder of pdxMindShare, an online career community and networking group mentioned on Seth Godin’s blog. Formerly a CMO and founder or co-founder of multiple agencies, he’s known as a thought leader in digital marketing. He’s been an adjunct professor for more than 20 years at Portland State University and a volunteer instructor for SCORE. Lewis co-founded SEMpdx in 2006, a trade organization for search engine marketing professionals. His recognition includes Marketer of the Year by the American Marketing Association and Top 100 Digital Marketing Influencers by BuzzSumo.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Building passive income streams through real estate investments as a way to achieve financial independence.
    Balancing personal fulfillment with business growth - finding the right size and structure that aligns with your values and desired lifestyle.
    Prioritizing employee engagement and satisfaction as a key driver of profitability and client retention.
    Conducting "stay interviews" to understand what motivates employees and how to improve their experience.
    Defining your "why" and living life on your own terms, rather than chasing other people's definitions of success.
    Cultivating an attitude of gratitude and focusing on what you have, rather than what you lack, to live an abundant life.

    Reprogram Your Brain with Dr. Don Wood

    Reprogram Your Brain with Dr. Don Wood

    Reprogram Your Brain
     
    Take away:
    Recognizing that our childhood experiences, both positive and negative, shape our biology in profound ways. Creating a safe, nurturing environment for kids is vital for their future well-being. And for adults, healing unresolved traumas from the past may be the key to unlocking better physical and mental health.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Dr. Don Wood had an "idyllic childhood" with very nurturing parents who never yelled, screamed, or hit him and his siblings. This provided a safe, calm home environment. His father was financially disciplined and taught them how to save money, despite not being wealthy himself. By age 19, Dr. Wood says he had $30,000 saved in the bank.
     
    His parents passed down values like financial discipline, saving diligently, avoiding wastefulness, and maintaining sufficiency - likely shaped by their own experiences growing up in challenging times. Their nurturing parenting style coupled with modeling provident financial behaviors laid a foundation for Dr. Wood's positive relationship with money from a young age.
     
    Bio:
    Don Wood, PhD, author, speaker, Founder & CEO of the Inspired Performance Institute, and creator of the patented TIPP method focused on helping people resolve their trauma and get their lives to a place of high performance. 
     
    He has helped 1000’s of people live a better life and overcome the effects of stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and addiction with his neuroscience-backed program, TIPP.
     
    TIPP program is designed to clear away the effects of disturbing or traumatic events, repurpose old thinking patterns and set the individual’s mind up for peak performance. 
     
    Dr. Wood is also author of two books, Emotional Concussions and You Must Be Out of your Mind and is releasing his newest book Don’t Mess With My DNA in near future.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Unresolved childhood trauma can lead to inflammation, a compromised immune system, and various mental/physical health issues like autoimmune disorders, addictions, anxiety, and depression.
    Our early childhood environments and how we were parented shape how our DNA gets expressed - creating either resilient biology or increased disease susceptibility.
    Addictive behaviors are the mind's way of coping with emotional pain by creating neurological "codes" that provide temporary relief.
    Traumatic memories get stored in vivid high-definition, keeping the nervous system in a perpetual state of activation as if the threat is still present.
    A calm, safe, and nurturing home environment is crucial for children to develop properly regulated nervous systems and healthy mind-body connections.
    Emotions like fear and anger signal the subconscious trying to provoke a protective action, but get dysregulated when sourced from past traumatic memories.
    An innovative 4-hour program can "reset" high-definition traumatic memories, allowing the mind and body's natural healing capabilities to restore balance.

    Living a Resolved Life with Anand Damani

    Living a Resolved Life with Anand Damani

    Living a Resolved Life
     
    Take away:
    Creating an ecosystem that allows people's natural talents and tendencies to emerge, rather than forcing predetermined roles, enables harmonious teams and businesses that can thrive.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Anand grew up in a small industrial town in southern India where the match stick and firecracker industry thrived. Though money was not explicitly discussed at home or in school, he could see the impacts and importance of economics all around him from a young age. Anand imbibed principles like saving, living within means, respecting the value of money, and receiving it graciously from elders through his childhood observations and experiences in that industrial town environment.
     
    Bio:
     
    Existential Realist & Spiritualist, Technology Integration expert, IT Business Services, Writer, Speaker & Philosopher.
     
    Anand Damani's life embodies the model of a perfectly happy human being. He revels in the present and collaborates harmoniously with others to foster global happiness. This approach is rooted in his deep understanding of the absolute truth as imparted by Nature to Shri A.A Nagarajji.
     
    Damani believes that true knowledge is that which is practiced; the rest, he considers merely academic jargon. He lives out this knowledge every moment, existing in bliss and harmony with himself, with other human beings, and with Nature.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Aligning your thoughts, actions, and purpose is key to living a resolved and harmonious life without internal conflicts or delusions.
    The true essence of yoga goes far beyond physical exercise - it's a systematic path to understand life's deeper realities and find inner peace.
    Create an ecosystem that allows people's natural talents and tendencies to emerge, rather than forcing roles - this enables harmonious teams and businesses.
    An abundant mindset recognizes that nature can fulfill all our true needs if we align ourselves properly.
    Being openly grateful for others and accepting people as they are, instead of trying to change them, brings more peace.
    Advise for youth: Remain open-minded and receptive to life's lessons instead of forming rigid beliefs early on.

    Human Life Value with Michael Isom

    Human Life Value with Michael Isom

    Human Life Value 
     
    Take away:
    The importance of doing deep inner work to uncover and let go of limiting beliefs and childhood traumas that may be unconsciously shaping our perspectives, actions, and ability to trust ourselves and others as adults.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Michael Isom started working at a local motorcycle dealership when he was in 7th grade, earning $2.25 an hour. He used the money he earned to pay for things he wanted like clothes for school, motorcycle parts, and dating expenses.
    In his senior year of high school, he paid his mom $100 per month in rent to help out the family. Michael attributes learning the value of money from his ability to earn it himself and spend it as he wished from a young age. He emphasizes that there is no substitute for allowing kids to earn and spend money themselves to truly understand its value. This was a key financial lesson he learned growing up and something he practiced with his own children as well.
     
    Bio:
    Michael Isom has dedicated his life to empowering conversations around production and protection. He passionately believes that we are living during the most extraordinary time in human history. Entrepreneurs are going to create more wealth for themselves and society over the next decade than we did during the entire 20th century.
    Michael built the financial firm Vault AIS for you to understand and leverage the principles underlying these economic forces at play.
    Co-Author of What Would The Rockefellers Do, Michael speaks across the country inspiring business owners and professionals on The AIS Triangle. A unique system to pay less in tax, safeguard money, access that money along the way, earn interest versus paying it, ensuring money survives from one generation to the other and simplifying personal finance.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    The importance of allowing children to earn and spend their own money to truly learn the value of a dollar.
    Examining the human life value balance sheet - identifying assets like knowledge, relationships, and values versus liabilities like limiting beliefs and negativity.
    The transformative power of doing deep inner work to uncover childhood traumas and stories that shape our perspectives and actions as adults.
    Finding clarity on our true wants and needs through practices like journaling, meditation, and self-reflection.
    Considering our careers/businesses as our #1 investment where we should take risks and maintain passion, rather than gambling in areas outside our expertise.
    Fulfilling the higher human needs of growth and contribution as a path to true significance.
    Cultivating trust in oneself and gaining diverse experiences, especially in youth, to discover one's area of passion and expertise.

    You're Not Broken with Chris Duncan

    You're Not Broken with Chris Duncan

    You're Not Broken
     
    Take away:
    Your past does not define your future. You can create the life you want without having to "fix" yourself, and that true abundance comes from recognizing the richness that already exists in your present circumstances.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Growing up in New Zealand, Chris didn't receive much education about money management. The common mindset was to trade time for money, with the belief that you could never have enough. His understanding of money was focused on getting a good job, working hard, and trying to get paid as much as possible. It wasn't until Chris was around 11 years old that he witnessed a family friend buy a nightclub, which was the first business owner he knew personally. This event opened his eyes to the possibility of starting a business and doing something different. However, Chris grew up in a more socialist society where the focus was on ensuring the "little guy" didn't get left behind, rather than encouraging entrepreneurship and wealth creation. This created a challenging environment for developing a business mindset.
     
    Bio:
    Chris Duncan is a New York Times best-selling author, investor, and entrepreneur. Having built two 8- figure companies, and selling one, Chris is now focused on his third multi-million dollar endeavor.
    A pioneer of the superconscious movement, with over 30,000 students each year undergoing the recode process, Chris was also featured in the 2019 documentary ‘We Rise Up’, along with the likes of Tony Robbins and the 14th Dalai Lam.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    Understand that the past does not define your future - let go of limiting beliefs and create a new path forward.
    Discover your "super consciousness" - access your higher intelligence and genius to create without limitations.
    Define what a "good life" means to you, not based on societal or family expectations.
    Implement the "Profit First" system to ensure your business is generating adequate profits.
    Entrepreneurship is a journey of developing key skills - focus on mastering each step rather than getting discouraged.
    Financial freedom allows you to design your ideal lifestyle, but fulfillment comes from purpose, not just wealth.
    Abundance is a mindset - recognize how much you already have rather than constantly chasing more.

    How to Master Your Financial Psychology with Brad Klontz

    How to Master Your Financial Psychology with Brad Klontz

    How to Master Your Financial Psychology
     
    Take away:
    Developing an internal locus of control, where you take responsibility for your financial outcomes instead of blaming external factors, is a powerful mindset that can lead to significantly improved financial behaviors and outcomes.
     
    Money Learnings:
    Brad grew up in a lower-income family, with his parents divorcing when he was young. Both sets of grandparents lived in trailer parks, so he was very aware of the challenges and limitations of being poor. This drove Brad to want to figure out how to not experience the same financial struggles as his family. He developed an intense interest in understanding the psychology behind why "reasonably intelligent people do something so stupid" with their money. Brad credits this early curiosity and drive to understand money as the foundation for his later career path in financial psychology and his mission to help people improve their financial behaviors and mindsets.
     
    Bio:
    Bradley T. Klontz, Psy.D., CFP® is an expert in financial psychology, behavioral finance, and financial planning. He is a Managing Principal of YMW Advisors, an Associate Professor of Practice at Creighton University Heider College of Business, and a founder of the Financial Psychology Institute®.
     
    Dr. Klontz has written eight books on the psychology of money and his work has been featured on ABC News' 20/20, Good Morning America, and in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times and many more.
     
    Highlights from this episode:
    The importance of understanding your family's relationship with money and how it shapes your own beliefs and behaviors around money.
    The concept of "money avoidance" - the belief that rich people are greedy and money is corrupting, which can lead to self-sabotaging financial behaviors.
    The danger of the "money focus" or "money worship" mindset, where material possessions are equated with happiness, leading to unhealthy outcomes.
    The power of automating savings and creating a clear vision for your financial future, rather than just focusing on the present moment.
    The importance of finding purpose and meaning beyond just accumulating wealth, and the potential pitfalls of having too much free time.
    The idea that "retirement is for dead people" and the value of continually working towards new goals, even after achieving financial freedom.
    The emphasis on developing an internal locus of control, where you take responsibility for your financial outcomes rather than blaming external factors.

A journey of resilience and revelation

As a guest on the Richer Soul Podcast, I had the pleasure of sharing my personal journey with host Richard. Together, we explored my childhood experiences and the invaluable lesson I learned about the enduring power of love amidst financial challenges.

We discussed my mother's resilience in rebuilding her agency after divorcing my father. Additionally, we touched on the topic of psychedelics, exploring their impact on my personal growth.

Richard's empathetic hosting created a welcoming atmosphere for meaningful dialogue. I'm grateful for the opportunity to share my insights on resilience, love, and personal growth with the Richer Soul audience.

There's More to Life than Just Money

It's a true joy listening to Rocky Lalvani delve into a topic that seeks to bring the true wealth out in all of us. With a plethora of guests from differing backgrounds, Rocky listens, prods, probes and, perhaps most importantly, remembers to ask those "soul-ful" questions that the less mindful might have overlooked. The outcome is evolutionary, authentic and ever timely for the days in which we live. Highly recommended for the thoughtful, the proactive and those seeking new heights to explore the richness of life.
