    Dr. Grace Lee - Understanding the Brain and How to Optimize It

    In this episode I talk with Dr. Grace Lee who is a neuroscience based coach who has studied the brain and how it works. Now she is using her knowledge and expertise to teach other coaches how to monetize their knowledge and get paid on a recurring base with what they know. You'll hear in this episode how she has been able to turn her knowledge into income and also hear her story of how she came from a life of having been an orphan to creating the life of her dreams through perseverance, hard work, and patience.

    We also go into topics such as how do drugs affect your brain, what are the things that trigger your brain to work more efficiently, and how can we optimize ourselves so that we can have the best results possible in our work and our life.

    Cherry Tung - Achieving Financial Freedom and Becoming a Wealth Coach in her 20's

    Cherry Tung - Achieving Financial Freedom and Becoming a Wealth Coach in her 20's

    In this episode I talk with Cherry Tung who is a wealth coach. Most of her clients are corporate workers wanting to create additional income streams that align with their passion and expertise. Her approach in coaching is rooted in her personal experience as she created 16 income streams, invested multiple 6 figures in the stock market and reached 7 figure net worth for herself by the age of 25. And she did all that while working a full-time corporate job!

    This goes to show that if you really want something you can achieve it. Even though there were times Cherry felt alone, lost, and even depressed at times, she didn't let that stop her from building the life that she wanted for herself and her future self. No matter what situation or circumstance you find yourself in, you can always change that situation and it's never permanent.

    Instead of blaming your circumstances or people who weren't there for your, abandoned you, or might not have had had your backs, learn to depend and rely on yourself, love yourself, and start to become the victor not the victim of your life. Instead of letting your fears and doubts get the best of you, follow people on social media who can inspire you, lift you up, and give you the hope to go on another day, find beauty in life, and design the life of your dreams because we have that freedom especially in America.

    I hope that you're inspired by Cherry's story not only because she learned how to make money to get out of her financial circumstances but also because she chose to never give up and gave herself permission to go after what she truly wanted in life which is freedom.

    If you feel stuck financially definitely reach out to Cherry on Instagram @cherrytung.co and learn from her coaching and if you ever need help growing your social media you can message me @ray.ahn and checkout my free eBook on personal branding if you want to learn how to start building your personal brand on Instagram.

    Ricky Gutierrezz - Growing a 900k YouTube Channel on Daytrading and Making Millions in his 20's

    Ricky Gutierrezz - Growing a 900k YouTube Channel on Daytrading and Making Millions in his 20's

    In this episode I talk with Ricky Gutierrezz who is a full-time daytrader who has built one of the largest YouTube channels teaching people on how to daytrade. We talk about how he has sacrificed his teenage years and early 20's building, grinding, and creating a digital empire where now he is teaching people how to make profits daily using his trading strategies.

    In his mid 20's Ricky has amassed a fortune from daytrading and is helping people eager to learn how to do the same thing. Some things that we talked about were what was the reason for his drive which was to provide for himself and his future family and to build something meaningful that can help others to grow and develop as entrepreneurs.

    He shares an experience where he felt like he was working so much that he just felt cold and empty inside and wished that he spent his younger years having fun, playing with friends, and spending time with family.  He shares how he worked so much that he often forgot to sleep enough and didn't have proper health but now because of all his hard work, he is reaping the benefits of that today.

    The moral of the story is that you will face challenges in life but it's how you deal with them that will determine who you are. Ricky used to post YouTube videos even when nobody would engage with them or view them and has adjusted his content to cater to what his audience wants to learn about.

    You don't have to be great to start but you have to start to be great. Whether that's starting your first podcast, writing that first blog, or making that first video for YouTube just get started on creating that Instagram page for your business, building that website, or investing in that coach to get you to where you want to be.

    I hope that you're able to take away a lot of great information and golden nuggets from this episode and make sure to checkout Ricky on Instagram here and me on Instagram here.

    If you also want to checkout my free eBook on Personal Branding can download it for free here and I recently started a coaching program to help people get to 10k followers in 90 days so if you're curious about that feel free to DM me on IG or checkout some of the videos on YouTube.

    Raymond Ahn - Why I Left Med School to Pursue Entrepreneurship (with Chris Hsu)

    Raymond Ahn - Why I Left Med School to Pursue Entrepreneurship (with Chris Hsu)

    In this episode, I get interviewed by fellow podcaster Chris Hsu who asks me questions about myself and why I left med school to pursue my own path in life to building a podcast, growing millions of followers on Instagram, and built my own business coaching others in building their following and personal brands on Instagram.

    I talk about why I created my own path in life because I felt like there was so much more that I could do with my life, so much more impact I can make, and much more I can do leaving school and educating myself rather than just following the traditional route of schooling and getting a 9 to 5 job.

    I also talk about how I grew, built, and sold accounts for businesses and personal brands. I also talk about the factors that help to make a post go viral, some ways to growth hack Instagram, and the ways I was able to build over a million followers on Instagram.

    Hopefully this video helps you get to know a bit more about me and my story, inspires you to find your own path in life, and help you make the changes necessary to your life so that you can make an impact on this world and people will remember you for the legacy that you leave behind.

    Everyone wants to be remembered, get people's attention, and most of all leave a legacy that people will remember you by.

    That was my desire, to live a life that is lived to the fullest where every minute of it is used for a meaningful purpose to build something great and I hope this episode inspires you to do the same.

    Myron Golden - From Trash Man to Cash Man and Selling 1 Million on Stage

    Myron Golden - From Trash Man to Cash Man and Selling 1 Million on Stage

    In this episode, I talk with Myron Golden who has sold 55k to $1 mill plus packages teaching people how to sell on stage and has even worked with people like Russell Brunson and other famous entrepreneurs. He talks about the importance of following certain principles in business and how just like there's the law of gravity in place, there's certain principles in business that help people succeed.

    He shares how he has learned a lot of his principles from the Bible and describes them as God's automation. Myron gives the example of sowing and reaping and how you don't always reap what you sow immediately but it takes time. 

    He shares how every thought, every word, every dollar, and every action we take is sowing something into the universe and what we sow is actually going to reap something great later on not immediately. Myron talks about how when every thing we do, say, and think is an act of sowing and how we need to be wise in how we live our lives because we will eventually reap whatever we sow into the world.

    He has so much wisdom and has shared so much in this episode that you can use for your business as well especially if you want to sell high ticket coaching. More than that though, Myron has so much wisdom and there's this one quote he says "You cannot teach what you do not know, you cannot lead where you will not go."

    We also talk about the importance of being resourceful and how important it is to turn your ideas into wealth. You can follow Myron on Instagram.com/myrongolden and can checkout his website myrongolden.com 

    You can also join his free Facebook group where he teaches on Biblical principles for success here

    Anastasia Chudomekhova - Pursuing the Dream of Being an International Professional Violinist from Russia

    Anastasia Chudomekhova - Pursuing the Dream of Being an International Professional Violinist from Russia

    In this episode, I talk with Anastasia Chudomekhova who is a Russian violinist born in Yalta, Crimea and has started playing violin at the age of 7. She has studied at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and is pursuing her dream of playing professionally as a violinist.

    She talks about how difficult it was growing up without money at a young age and how she was very focused on making money so that her family can no longer live in poverty.

    She has found her passion through playing violin and at a very young age she got recognition as she started working with awesome soundmakers from Russia and brands like Sony. She also played for the president of Czech Republic, Italian and Russian ministers as well as others.

    An important thing that she talks about is creating a vision board and focusing on the five main areas that matter such as love, relationships, family, career, and personal development. She recommends creating a vision board and focusing your positive energy towards that vision just like how Walt Disney imagined a place where kids can play, have fun, and enjoy time with their families.

    What is your vision and what are you willing to sacrifice to see that happen? For Anastasia, it was the dream of being a professional violinist and is now playing in front of royal families.

    For you, there might be a vision inside that you cannot get rid of no matter how long you try to run away from it, and I encourage you to start building a vision board so that your dreams can become a reality.

    Obviously you will need to make money too in the process, but really start thinking about what you want to do for the rest of your life because that is what most of your life will consist of and if you do it just for a paycheck, then you are not really living your life to the fullest potential nor are you living a truly satisfied life.

    Be the creator of your destiny and like Jim Carrey says in this video “So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality.” 

    I pray and hope that you choose a life based on love not fear and that you leave your legacy and your mark on this Earth so that you and your accomplishments will be remembered on this Earth even after you are gone.

    Please subscribe, share, and let me and Anastasia know what your thoughts are from this interview; we check all our DM's and also she is in need of a DJ so if you can help her with that send her a message!

    Hope you were encouraged and blessed by this episode and if you were, please leave a review and if you ever have any questions or want to talk to me directly just DM me at @ray.ahn and I'll respond (don't be shy). Would love to support what you're doing and help you on your journey to achieving your goals and vision in life.
