    From Unhappy Lawyer to 8-Figure CEO | Rachel Rodgers

    From Unhappy Lawyer to 8-Figure CEO | Rachel Rodgers

    Becoming a very successful lawyer and pulling in almost 7-figures sounds like the ultimate dream for many.



    But for Rachel Rodgers, that was just the beginning.



    The real beginnings for Rachel started in New York without a lot of money or money talks.



    Rachel was exposed to how the other half lived though, and that inspired her to chase after a lucrative career.



    That is what sent her toward practicing law.



    After building out a very successful practice, she realized it wasn't law that she enjoyed.



    She enjoyed the art of building businesses.



    Rachel also realized that she could help a lot of under-represented people do the same.



    Today, you can find Rachel running HelloSeven where she's doing just that.



    HelloSeven's mission statement is pretty powerful:





    Our mission is to help you make more money. Period.

    We teach you how to increase your income, build wealth, and earn 7 figures per year without sacrificing your family, health, or sanity in the process.

    Rachel has truly built an impressive business and community of business owners.



    Make sure to check the links below to see the great works that Rachel has authored and will author in the future.

    Bad Personal Finance Takes (Part 2)

    Bad Personal Finance Takes (Part 2)

    Who needs a financial advisor when you have TikTok right?



    Be careful where you get your financial advice from.



    The internet is full of confident people, spouting absolute garbage.



    Some are trying to take your money.



    Some are trying to get clicks.



    And some are... just dumb honestly.



    No worries though, we're here to make sure you always have a top-notch financial education.



    Today, we'll have a little fun picking apart some of these bad takes.



    Some topics include:



    * Are you destined to run out of money with the 4% rule?

    * Are credit cards just a scam?

    * Is there a foolproof way to get fancy things like Rolex watches for free?

    * Do you have way too much cash in your accounts?

    * How owning a house actually does cost money



    It's wild how confident some of these people seem to be with their views.



    Financial misinformation is super dangerous and could lead you into some very bad spots.



    While we had fun with this one and some are almost comically bad takes, be careful out there.



    Remember, if it's too good to be true, it probably is (except the Mega backdoor Roth of course)



    Thank you all for listening and may this episode help you on your path to a financially independent future.

    How He Made $100,000 in 48 Hours | Brian Luebben

    Last week we talked about starting a business in 60 minutes or less.



    No website, no logo, no business plan, just a solution to a problem and a way to collect payment.



    And today's guest, Brian Luebben, did just that.



    In fact, Brian was able to bring in over $100,000 in just 48 hours.



    You'll hear all about it in the episode.



    Brian is the author of the new book From Passive to Passionate and host of The Action Academy Podcast.



    We brought you Brian's backstory in episode 203.



    Today, we'll dive into the evolution of Brian and reflect on his book and the strides he's taken in business.



    This includes converting a flurry of free offerings into a roster of paying customers.

    How to Start a Business in 60 Minutes or Less

    How to Start a Business in 60 Minutes or Less

    Whether it's a path to financial independence or an outlet post-retirement, starting your own business could be a great goal.



    But that's got to be really hard right?



    Today, we're bringing you a step-by-step walkthrough to starting that business with almost no effort.



    What do you actually need to start a business?



    Probably a lot less than you think.



    The biggest takeaways you should have are:



    * You don't have to invent the next big thing, just provide a product/service that's slightly better than the competition

    * You don't need a business plan, just a landing spot for people to see and sign up for your product/service.

    * You can always add additional layers to the business after you launch



    Deciding what you want to do, or what you want to call it might be difficult, but if you have an idea you are passionate about, don't let the fear of starting a "real" business hold you back.



    Now go out there, create that new income stream, and let us hear about it in the Facebook Group.



    Thank you all for listening and may this episode inspire you to start your very own business.
