    Episode #18: Sean Rosensteel - The School of Intentional Living

    Sean Rosensteel is a serial entrepreneur who seems to have done it all, except for writing a book.  He checked that accomplishment off this year by writing his book, The School of Intentional Living.  We had a really fun conversation around the book and what it took to write and publish it.  

    If you are looking to make a meaningful positive change in your personal/professional life, I couldn't recommend Sean's book more as a great place to start. You can download an advance copy using the following link:


    It will be available to purchase on Amazon on July 21st.

    Episode #17: Jerry Brazie - COVID and business

    Episode #17: Jerry Brazie - COVID and business

    Jerry Brazie returns for an epic conversation about COVID, our response to it, and the consequences those actions have taken on the business community.  It was hard no to dwell on the negative as he shared story after story of business owners who have had to close their business and may never again reopen.  I value his insight as he truly has his finger on the pulse of the business community, and I gain a new perspective on our future.  

    Jerry hosts his own podcast The Jerry Brazie Podcast http://jerrybrazie.com/podcast/.  If you haven't yet listened to it, I highly recommend.  

    Thanks again Jerry for your support and I look forward to our next interview!

    Episode #16: Mark Gagas - Wirehaired Studios

    Mark Gagas is an amazing photographer with a genius level business mind.  I'm so grateful to him for agreeing to discuss his journey.  It is a very inspirational story of leaving a very successful corporate career, essentially walking away from large sums of money and accolades, to focus on what truly matters to him; developing and expressing his creativity through photography, as well as being there for is growing family.  Not many people have the guts to make this decision, but Mark is certainly one of the few who have with no regrets.  

    Check out Mark's business at https://wirehairedstudios.com/

    He can also be found on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wirehairedstudios/

    I hope you enjoy this episode, and thanks for listening.

    Episode #15 - Brandon Moryl - Mortgage Crisis and the CARE Act

    Brandon and I sit down (virtually, to discuss the CARE act and how there are serious holes in it causing several mortgage companies to begin failing.  This will ripple through the economy and have tremendous consequences unless addressed.  We also discuss the economy at large and how being quarantined is changing everything we have ever known about economic forecasting.  

    We did video record this episode and put it on youtube.  That can be found here: https://youtu.be/xLo-WLPsz4Q

    Thanks for listening.

Getting to the Heart of It

I love that Nicholas and his podcast gets to the heart of issues. Instead of talking about the old ways of change, Nicholas invites guests and conversations that explore change and transformation in new and impactful ways. Bravo Nicholas for pulling back the current to help others on their business and life journeys.

A Love Story

A wonderful story of love. A father/daughter relationship that developed into a beautiful entrepreneurial enterprise along the way...and continues into the next generation!
The joy of doing something you love and controlling your own destiny is inspirational.
Plus, I too now look at real estate investment in a completely different light.
Five to one wealth building. Wow!
