    Todays Episode
    Scott Proposki arrived at 3 O'clock Coffee Cafe early, eager to learn from the celebrated football enthusiast and master of business success - Greg Waidmann. Scott had been a fan for years and was excited to pick his brain about growth strategies.

    As he waited, Scott looked around the cafe, taking in all its details. It was an inviting space with exposed brick walls and comfortable chairs that invited conversation. He noticed an old man sipping coffee in one corner and two students huddled together over books in another corner.

    The clock struck three o’clock and suddenly, the door opened, revealing Greg Waidmann confidently entering the room like a celebrity arriving at a movie premiere. All eyes were on him as he approached Scott's table with a big grin on his face while shaking hands with both enthusiasm and finesse before sitting down across from him.

    Greg started right away, sharing his personal story that led him to success and valuable lessons learned along the way—all peppered with anecdotes about life between wins on the field or deals made behind closed doors that kept everyone engaged throughout their conversation.

    At first glance, it seemed like they were discussing business. Still, diving deeper into each topic, they discovered shared values which further strengthened their connection beyond just talking shop — making this episode truly special!  By 4:00 pm when it came time to say goodbye, neither felt ready yet wanted to respect the other's schedule so they ended their session having made plans for more conversations soon enough, leaving both feelings inspired after such an engaging chat full of insight-filled gems!

    Overview
    Network Lead Exchange is an online network of businesses organized by Chapters or Regions with the intent of promoting new business referrals across the Network to other businesses within their Chapter. 

    Members earn commissions for the referrals they send and gain access to a new source of leads from businesses they know and trust. Chapters or Regions are sold as franchises. 

    Franchise owners can invite other businesses in their area to join their Chapter with one participating business per category (based on product or service designator). 

    Once a new member joins under a specific category, no other businesses that sell the same product or offer the same service can join the Exchange in that Chapter.

    Each business that joins the Exchange will set up a profile for their business that details their business category, products and services offered, promotions, and more.

    On the Exchange, members will have the opportunity to network with one another and will be able to track referrals sent and received and sales generated from the Exchange.

    Through the platform, members will exchange ideas, share promotions and events, learn from pros and access a network of service providers that provide specific incentives to all members across Network Lead Exchange.

    Photographer's Guide To A Positive Mindset

    Photographer's Guide To A Positive Mindset

    A coffee conversation with Rob Trendiak an expert headshot photographer from Vancouver who joined Scott Proposki in discussing being a photographer. His wife told him one day that he was a photographer, so he started being a photographer, right now! And that was all Rob needed to hear, and he never looked back on doing anything else.

    Rob's grandfather was a respected fighter pilot in WWII; he later combined his military work as a pilot and photographer to become an aerial photographer, which also sparked Rob's life as a photographer. 

    Rob and his wife took full advantage of the downtime caused by COVID and created a beautiful family with two kids under two. They share stories of rebuilding life as photographers and maintaining positivity after COVID. 

    Rob Trendiak is an entrepreneur who loves to help others. He has a fun and positive outlook on life, which is evident in his stylish green hair. Rob and how wife also owns three hair salons in Vancouver, British Columbia, so he knows a thing or two about the beauty industry too! 

    He enjoys working with her and helping her business mindset. When he's not busy helping out at the salon, Rob likes to spend time with his family and friends. He also enjoys playing sports and spending time outdoors.

    Words from a New York Times bestselling author Michael Levin

    Words from a New York Times bestselling author Michael Levin

    In this week's episode, we interview Michael Levin, New York Times best-selling author; he shares some inside wisdom to get your confidence to write a book, not any book but a New York Times bestselling book or your best business book that will change the world.

    Michael tells us to find a job writing and play the game; it's all going to be ok; get sober soon, take care of unfinished business from childhood early, and don't waste your early days in life.

    Being all In and finding your niche, purpose, and passion, find your true why that will push you forward to write your next bestseller book.

    Michael always loved writing and tells us when you find something that you're passionate about, it doesn't feel like work. It feels like something you would do even if you weren't paid for it. 

     I think the biggest thing that helped me was just finding my niche and figuring out what it is that I do best as a writer.

    Some Snippets From The Show:

    Scott: That's great advice for our listeners who are interested in writing a book. So many people want to write a book but don't know where to start or what their niche is. Once you figure out what your niche is, then the sky's the limit, right? 

    Michael: Absolutely. And I think it's important to find your niche because there are so many different genres out there and so many different types of books that you could write. But if you can focus in on the type of book that you're passionate about and that you feel like you could really bring something unique to, then I think that's half the battle right there.

    Scott: That makes sense. So once you found your niche and started writing within that genre or category, did you ever face any confidence issues or imposter syndrome? We've all heard of imposter syndrome before but can you explain what that is for our listeners? 

    Michael: Sure. Imposter syndrome is basically when you doubt your own abilities or when you feel like maybe you're not qualified to do the thing that you're doing even though everything in your career up until that point would indicate otherwise. So for example, with writing, there have been times when I've looked at my past successes and thought "Well, maybe this is just beginner's luck" or "Maybe I just got lucky with this particular project." But I think that it's important not to compare yourself to other people or other writers because everybody has their own process and their own journey. And so as long as you stay focused on your own path and on your own goals, then I think imposter syndrome becomes less of an issue. 

    Scott: That's great advice, Michael! Thank you for sharing that with us today! For our listeners who are interested in hearing more from Michael Levin, his new book ". . ." is scheduled for release later this year." You can find more information about him and his work on his website . . . Thanks again for being here with us today!

    Michael Levin is an American New York Times best-selling author. On January 20, 2012, Michael appeared as a guest entrepreneur on the ABC Television show Shark Tank. He started and sold the book writing firm BusinessGhost, Inc., and in 2018 started a new book ghostwriting firm, Michael Levin Writing Company.

Interesting

I had read Scott’s book “Camera focus” which was recommended to me from a mutual acquaintance. I believe his podcast follows the same narrative providing informative useful info that can be used in life.Hopefully we’ll see some updated shows soon.
