I know this is not an easy job. What drives you?
Changing the world. I have a vision of completely restructuring the entire educational system and bringing the idea of personal development and mindset training to the masses. Everything in life comes down to how our brains are wired – and we can create how our brains are wired.
There is way to much anger/anxiety/depression/hatred in this world and if I can help ease that… I have a vision of starting it at a young age as well – there are lots of motivational speakers for adults… but we need to begin with kids and during the educational process. Mindset training must become a focus in our world’s future. That and of course providing for my family/loved ones and the fulfillment I receive when I see the results of my sales/mindset trainings are the best feelings I could ever describe.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? What lesson did you learn from them?
Oh man – there are too many to list and I have been blessed at very specific times. Early on in my teenage years my dad was able to plant in my head that there was a big world out there and to dream big – he was big on all the great motivational speakers like Tony Robbins – Jim Rohn etc. So when it was time for me to actually absorb the information… I was ready and I credit this to him for opening that door.
My business partner Ben planted in my head that starting a business is a true option in life and convinced me to move from Tampa and working in the NFL to the unknown of Utah and trying to build a business. Billy Gene opened the door with the business model that I took and ran with and my investment of 1k in him has produced several millions back.
John Logar was an amazing mentor and coach as we were scaling. Alex Becker has taught me more about sales and scaling sales/webinars than anyone on earth and I credit him with helping generate millions in sales through his trainings. And I have two mentors from my times in professional sports – Deno and Mino who both helped me “grow up” and learn how to become a professional.
How do you push through your worst times?
Vision and belief. That’s it. I wake up everyday and NO MATTER WHAT it looks like around me… I believe that I am on my way to my dreams and goals. Then I sit down and execute. By far the most powerful and important things I have ever done was invest a ton into personal development and spend ungodly amounts of time working on myself and improving how my brain operates.
