    From Homeless to Millionaire with Nichole MacDonald

    EP 193 - From Homeless to Millionaire with Nichole MacDonald

    In this episode, Nichole MacDonald and Alex share all the steps Nichole took to become a successful entrepreneur after touching rock bottom.
    Nichole MacDonald has 20 years of marketing and product development experience and 13 years of being an entrepreneur. She built a multi-million dollar business from scratch and is the CEO of Sash Bags. Nichole has a huge presence on social media with over 100K organic followers.

Then Nichole stepped into business number two after gaining some stability. With a new perspective, lessons learned, and a pragmatic yet creative approach, she brought the Sash Bag to market. It took only four years to turn Sash into a multi-million dollar business.
    Nichole is now an inspiring ontologic coach helping transform other people's lives with an intensive holistic program called Multi-Million Dollar Mastermind.

    No One Escapes The Process with Nick Velasquez

    No One Escapes The Process with Nick Velasquez

    EP 190 - No One Escapes The Process with Nick Velasquez

    Join Nick Velasquez and Alex as they discuss the price to pay for success and how no one can escape it.
    Nick Velasquez is a passionate learner and devoted student of mastery. He’s the author of the popular blog UnlimitedMastery.com, where he writes about learning science, peak performance, creativity, and mastering skills. His writing has been featured in outlets such as TIME, Entrepreneur, Forbes, and Thought Catalogue. Nick speaks multiple languages and spends his time between Tokyo and Montréal.
    His first real estate investment deal, for which he had prepared for years and invested all his savings on, was falling apart. Costs were much higher than budgeted and the government wanted to expropriate him, which in turn scared off any potential buyers. It could have ended his real estate investing career before it got started. But he stuck with it, fought back, and came out successful.
    After overcoming that challenge, Nick learned that he doesn't run away or hide when things get tough. Now he can take more calculated risks and feel more comfortable with unknowns because he knows he'll deal with what comes his way.

    In this episode we discuss:
    - Writing books and the process
    - Pushing yourself out of discomfort
    - Being heroes of our own story
    - 1st-degree consequences
    - 2nd-degree consequences
    - Having a body vs being a body
    - Impossible standards vs unreasonable efforts
    - Unrealistic expectations and your process
    - Willpower
    - Bestism
    - The Gods demand human sacrifice
    - Living and learning in Columbia, Canada, and Japan

LOVE

I had the pleasure of being on Alex's podcast .. a true gem + extremely authentic man. THANK YOU for the work you are putting into the world, Alex. Well worth the listen! So good.

Lance Schuttler ,

A good man

I had the privilege of being on Alex’s podcast and want to echo what many others are saying in that Alex’s podcast is well worth your time in many regards.

Alex’s ability to draw out valuable and helpful information from his guests is a skill that very few have and is something I admire about him and his podcast.

Eliciting these deep responses from his guests is part of why we listen to people in the first place: we want to hear interesting, valuable and helpful information that moves us further along on our own path.

Alex is a good man and his heart is absolutely in the place of wanting to help others.

Keep dreaming big everyone and thanks for what you do Alex!
