BIO: Bryan Clayton is CEO and co-founder of GreenPal, an online marketplace that connects homeowners with local lawn care professionals. STORY: Bryan learned about Bitcoin from an employee who claimed to be a miner. He invested $10,000 without further research. Their Bitcoin wallet was hacked six months later, and he lost his entire investment. LEARNING: Don't do anything unless your whole heart and soul are in it. Understand all the risks you're exposed to before getting into something new.   “There is no one move on the chessboard that wins the game. There are no shortcuts; it's always a build-up to the win.”Bryan Clayton  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/bryan-clayton-a96b33214/ (Bryan Clayton) is CEO and co-founder of https://www.yourgreenpal.com/ (GreenPal), an online marketplace that connects homeowners with local lawn care professionals. Before starting GreenPal, Bryan founded Peachtree Inc., one of the largest landscaping companies in Tennessee, and sold it in 2013. Bryan's interest and expertise are related to entrepreneurship, small business growth, marketing, and bootstrapping businesses from zero revenue to profitability and exit. Worst investment everIn 2012, Bryan got to know about Bitcoin through one of his employees, a Bitcoin miner. The employee explained to Bryan the theory of Bitcoin and what it was. Bryan thought cryptocurrencies were pretty cool, and he was interested in investing in this invisible money. Bryan invested about $10,000 into Bitcoin. Six months later, his employee was in panic mode. Bryan learned that their Bitcoin wallet had been hacked and all their Bitcoin stolen. So, Bryan's $10,000 went to zero just like that. Lessons learnedDon't do anything unless your whole heart and soul are in it. You have to get into the game to understand and learn how to mitigate risks. Andrew's takeawaysIf there were a fast way of getting rich, everyone would do it. New equals risk, so understand all the risks you're exposed to. Actionable adviceDedicate time to work on yourself while you're working on and in the business of investing. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsFor the next 12 months, Bryan's goal is to achieve 50% business growth. Parting words  “Don't let risk scare you to stay on the sidelines.

This week on "Death in The Garden," Jake and Maren share their interview with experimental psychologist, professor, and author, Sheldon Solomon. This episode was recorded in May of 2021, but was always a seminal piece for our project: we talk about how death denying delusions are running rampant in modern culture, how the blind belief in the inevitability of progress is taking us down a dark road, and how the acceptance and awareness of our mortality can help us turn our attention to the vistas of awe and enchantment necessary to create the more beautiful world we all want to live in.  Please subscribe to our Substack to get writing accompaniments to this podcast and more, as well as a deep dive into our thoughts at the moment delivered right to your email.

BIO: Adrian Choo is the One and Only Career Strategist in Asia and is the founder of Career Agility International. In three years, he helped more than one thousand clients successfully achieve clarity to enjoy a happier and even more successful career. STORY: Adrian and his friend started a technology company that ran for three years. They had to call it quits when they couldn't scale the business. LEARNING: Don't go into business just because you want to be in business; acquire domain expertise first. Entrepreneurship is a long game.   “Don't they say the early bird gets the worm? Sometimes it isn't true. It's the second mouse that gets the cheese.”Adrian Choo  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/adrianchoo/ (Adrian Choo) is the One and Only Career Strategist in Asia and is the founder of https://www.careeragility.org/ (Career Agility International). In three years, he helped more than one thousand clients successfully achieve clarity to enjoy a happier and even more successful career! Worst investment everAdrian wanted to start a business again after his first entrepreneurial stint. So he sat down with friends and brainstormed business ideas. They created a company doing electronic marketing. They got funded, ran it, and engineered many groundbreaking technologies in electronic marketing, data analytics, and lifestyle marketing. Adrian and his friends ran the business for three years. They were successful at first but had difficulty scaling it. Eventually, they decided to call it a day and go their separate ways. Lessons learnedDon't go into business just because you want to be in business. First, acquire domain expertise, have a solid business foundation or idea, and then go into business. Understand the market before becoming an entrepreneur, not the other way around. Andrew's takeawaysEntrepreneurship is a long game. When you go into entrepreneurship, be prepared to dedicate the next five or ten years of your life or even your lifetime. Set a goal to get to $3 to $5 million in revenue as fast as possible, possibly within three years. This is enough money to cover the overheads of running a real business. Actionable adviceYou have to make mistakes to learn from them. But on the flip side of it, it's better to learn from other people's mistakes. If you want to go into business and be an entrepreneur, Adrian recommends that you watch all seven seasons of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shark_Tank (Shark Tank), the American version.

BIO: Shang Saavedra reached the ability to be work-optional by the time she was 31 years old by focusing on increasing her income, lowering her expenses, and investing all her savings. STORY: Shang was ill-advised to buy a life insurance policy with the promise of getting 6-7% returns. She trusted the financial advisor without doing any research on the policy. The policy is barely making any returns. LEARNING: Do due diligence on the motivations of any financial advisors that you take on. Scrutinize any figures and illustrations that you get.   "You should be able to explain your investment to your teenage self. If your teenage self cannot understand it, then don't invest in it."Shang Saavedra  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/shangsaavedra/ (Shang Saavedra) reached the ability to be work-optional by the time she was 31 years old by focusing on increasing her income, lowering her expenses, and investing all her savings. During the day, Shang is a corporate working mother, and at night, she creates content around investing, personal finance, and mindset, on her blog https://savemycents.com/ (savemycents.com) and Instagram https://www.instagram.com/savemycents/ (@savemycents). She has a heart for teaching Americans how to retire with dignity, focusing on mental health, behavioral psychology, and an attitude of doing things scared. She lives with her husband, child, and two cats in New York City. Worst investment everWhen Shang was in her mid-20s, she was scouting for an investment that would help her avoid income tax as much as possible or reduce her income tax liability. A financial advisor she was talking to sold her a whole life insurance policy that he claimed would give her six to seven percent returns. Shang bought the policy with yearly premiums of $5,000. It was only a year later, when Shang started reading more into the whole life insurance policy and its financial statements, she realized the growth rates that the financial advisor had illustrated to her were unrealistic. In reality, the value of her policy was likely growing close to inflation. Thankfully, the $5,000 premium wasn't a ton of money relative to how much Shang invests today, and she's not losing money, but she's not making good returns either. But it's still her worst investment ever, and she feels so shameful because as a highly educated person who can run her numbers, she ended up with this pretty awful investment. Lessons learnedDo due diligence on the motivations of any financial advisors that you take on. Scrutinize any figures and illustrations you get, especially those with unbelievable growth rates. Be able to explain your investment to your teenage self. If your teenage self cannot understand it, don't invest in it. Andrew's takeawaysYou have a right to ask how much you're paying, who's getting paid, and who's getting a cut. The financial professional must explain it to you. Actionable adviceOnly buy term life insurance as it's a very reasonable policy, price wise for you to put some money into each year to provide for the people who depend on you. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsShang's goal for the next 12 months is to make as many new connections at her new company and do the best that she can there.

In this episode, Paul explains how his personal experience with trauma and his many years seeing patients have shaped his understanding of trauma's impact on the brain, its common patterns and manifestations, and how often people don't recognize the implications of trauma in their own life. He discusses major challenges in recognizing trauma, including the lack of biomarkers in psychiatry and psychology, as well as the misguidance of the mental health system in targeting symptoms as opposed to root problems. He talks about shame as the biggest impediment to healing from trauma and offers solutions to how, as a society, we can start to change the stigma of mental health and allow more people to receive help. Finally, he concludes with a discussion about the potential role of psychedelics like psilocybin and MDMA in treating trauma. We discuss: Paul's background and unique path to psychiatry [2:30]; A personal tragedy that shaped Paul's understanding of trauma and resulting feelings of shame and guilt [5:30]; The current state of psychiatry training and need for improvement [20:15]; The over-reliance on outdated metrics and lack of attention to past trauma as impediments to patient care [28:30]; Defining trauma: various types, heterogeneity, and effects on the brain [34:30]; Importance of finding the roots of trauma and understanding the “why” [47:00]; The major challenge of recognizing trauma in patients [55:15]; How shame and guilt are barriers to treatment and healing [1:06:00]; How treating trauma compares to treating an abscess—a powerful analogy [1:11:30]; How evolutionary survival instincts create problems in modern society [1:15:15]; First step toward healing: overcoming the fear of talking about past trauma [1:19:00]; Shame: the biggest impediment to healing [1:25:15]; The antidote to shame and the need for discourse and understanding [1:34:15]; The emotional health component of healthspan [1:41:15]; How to reframe the conversation about mental health for a better future [1:52:00]; The growing impact of trauma on our society and the need for compassion [1:58:45]; Society's antiquated way of treating manifestations of trauma rather than root issues [2:04:15]; Potential role of psychedelics like psilocybin and MDMA in treating trauma [2:11:15]; Parting thoughts and resources for getting help [2:16:30]; More.

Have you ever had a hard time finding your home in the weight room? Joining me on the show this week is Rebel client and former lacrosse athlete, Jennie Bunce. Lacrosse is the sport that stuck for Jennie, and once she graduated college, she felt lost in terms of her fitness and training. She dabbled in powerlifting, marathon running, and CrossFit, but none of them fit the bill. She felt trapped in this never-ending cycle of dissatisfaction. Jennie was in pain; she wasn't seeing the results she wanted for the amount of work she was putting in, so she knew something needed to change. That's when she was introduced to Rebel Performance. Jennie and I talk all things training progressions, high versus low conditioning, exercise selection, fitness obstacles, and training splits. Since joining Rebel a year ago, Jennie has made an insane amount of progress (e.g. adding 20+ pounds to her squat, bench and deadlift every 8 weeks) AND she's absolutely crushing in her endurance and athleticism (all pain-free).

BIO: Jacent Wamala is a licensed marriage and family therapist turned money mindset coach and wealth & wellness university founder. STORY: Jacent accumulated huge student loans while in graduate school in her pursuit to fulfill societal expectations. LEARNING: Put boundaries, stipulations, and structure in your life. Have a clear vision about where you want to be.   "Don't focus on receiving a specific outcome, instead, be more open to learning and figuring out what comes next after that."Jacent Wamala  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/jacent-wamala-m-s-lmft-aa8baa194/ (Jacent Wamala) is a licensed marriage and family therapist turned money mindset coach and wealth & wellness university founder. Women of color rely on her expertise and “been-there-done-that” guidance to write the best chapters of their lives. With her by their side, they discover how to overcome debt, level up their income streams, and achieve impactful, life-changing financial freedom. Tap in with Jacent so she can teach you how to do the same. Her goal is to help her community become aware of the limiting beliefs and fears getting in the way of their financial freedom and empower them to create a plan to reach their goals. She does this by educating regularly on her podcast and IG page, both with the name, https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/jacents-gems/id1490915960 (Jacent's Gems). Worst investment everJacent had this checklist that she felt she needed to check off to be considered successful when growing up. So she went to school, got her diploma, went to college, got a good degree, and then got a good job. In her pursuit to fulfill societal expectations, she decided to join graduate school. Grad school left her with about $70,000 in student loans. Jacent was so hang up on fulfilling expectations that she didn't even consider looking for a scholarship. She feels that the worst mistake she ever made was taking up this debt. Lessons learnedPut boundaries, stipulations, and structure in your life. Success is not about feeling like doing something at the moment. It's about being convicted to the point that you must do it because you recognize the consequences would be higher if you don't follow through. Instead of focusing on being attached to an outcome, experiment and observe the data you receive. Then be open to what comes after that. Andrew's takeawaysSet your intention about where you want to be, and shift that focus from the pain, suffering, struggle, and obstacles preventing you from achieving success.

BIO: Neil Twa is the founder and CEO of Voltage Digital Marketing. He has been launching, operating, and growing private label e-commerce businesses for the last nine years. STORY: Neil partnered with a local community on a project he believed would be a gamechanger. He found out that he was being defrauded and had to quit the project losing his entire investment. LEARNING: Get a mentor. Know the people you partner with well before you get down to any business.   "Stop and sleep on it, and if you still feel confident about it in the morning, then you go for it."Neil Twa  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/neiltwa/ (Neil Twa) is the founder and CEO of https://www.voltagedm.com/businessbuilders?r_done=1 (Voltage Digital Marketing). He has been launching, operating, and growing private label e-commerce businesses for the last nine years. As of today, he and his clients have sold over $100 million in physical products primarily through the Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) sales channel. Neil shares his blueprint for how to build an online business that can generate a passive six-figure almost automated income in just 12 months while setting up the business for potentially millions in sales within 18 months. Worst investment everNeil got involved with some local community guys in Oklahoma. The group sold him on a concept for a new product that was going to help the oil and gas industry. The product would help save price points on the power grid while allowing residential homes and businesses the ability to become demand elastic to the grid. Neil bought into that vision and believed that it would be amazing technology. The investment was a solid one on paper. But over time, Neil started questioning the future of the project. They had raised millions from investors to get this business off the ground, but somehow, they couldn't make it to a prototype. There was always one excuse or another. The project wasn't moving forward as it should even though there was money put into it. So where exactly was the money going? One day Neil walked into the office and noticed a piece of paper that was a different accounting than the one that he had recently received. The paper showed money was going to other people instead of going to product development. At that point, Neil realized that he was being defrauded. Neil had to distance himself from the project and it left him completely broke. He felt like a failure and ashamed for getting people who trusted him involved. Lessons learnedHave a mentor or someone who is willing to listen to your business ideas. Before you partner with people, understand a little bit more about who they are and their key competencies. Andrew's takeawaysIt's normal to lose confidence when facing failure. Make sure your monthly financial statements are accurate and on time. Review them every month without fail. Actionable adviceDon't make a quick decision. Stop and sleep on it. If you still feel confident about it in the morning, then you go for it.

At the end of college, they decided to part ways, get employed, gain some experience, earn some money, and then come back and start up again. Jofin got hired by one of the largest IT services companies in India. The company was a great place to work. He got a lot of exposure to the IT world and worked with great people, and the company culture was the best. About a year down, it started hitting Jofin that the team was probably doing more in terms of having fun building stuff in college than in employment. Though they were now making money, they didn't enjoy what they were doing. It took them two years to quit their jobs and return to their startup. For Jofin, those two years he spent in employment instead of working on his startup are his worst investment ever. Lessons learnedNo time is too late. Today's the best time to start.

BIO: As founder and CEO at Stack, Smriti Tomar strives to make investing accessible and affordable for India's 440 million millennials to help them save for their life goals. STORY: Smriti took feedback from investors and used it to change her product. Customers hated the new version. After listening to her customers, she had to put in more time and money to build the product the customers—not investors—wanted. LEARNING: Invest in your customers, not investors. Be very prudent about where you invest your time in. You need a narrow focus to be successful, particularly with a startup.   "Time is the only capital that no investor or VC can give you, so invest it wisely."Smriti Tomar  Guest profileAs founder and CEO at https://t.co/CN5HXoVLOq (Stack), https://www.linkedin.com/in/smrititomar/ (Smriti Tomar) strives to make investing accessible and affordable for India's 440 million millennials to help them save for their life goals. Stack is the Vanguard for India. Through its automated savings, investments, and financial planning, Stack helps millennials stop wasting money and start making better financial decisions. She is devoted to and excels in three areas—each area strengthening the others: marketing and product management; creating a venture that creates awareness, accessibility, and personalization around financial services; and women's business success. Worst investment everWhen Smriti started her company, she soon realized that she would need capital to build many things, hire more people, expand, and ultimately create something that people could use. So she started approaching all kinds of investors, angels, and venture capitalists. Every new investor that Smriti would meet would say they love the product and give her some feedback. Smriti started making changes based on feedback from potential investors. Eventually, the product started deviating from what it was supposed to be. It took Smriti about two to three months to complete the first round of funding and get the capital. She then started working on the product. Once it was complete, she tested with her friends, family, and network. They tried out the product, and they liked the idea, but many people could not use many of its features because they seemed complicated. Smriti spent a lot of time talking to her customers to discover their pain points. She got such simple complaints that she could quickly solve them through the most specific features. Smriti had to start from scratch, causing her to spend a lot of time and put in a lot of money again to build the product customers wanted. Lessons learnedBe very prudent about where you invest your time in. Invest not into the investors but in your customers because these are the people whose lives you're supposed to add value to. Don't give in to the urge to please others. Don't give in to the fear of missing out. You're supposed to make mistakes, learn from them, and then move on. Trusting your instincts is much more important than following what others are saying. Andrew's takeawaysIt's so easy to create complexity and so hard to create simplicity. You need a narrow focus to be successful, particularly with a startup. Nail your unique selling point down to that one thing that people would repeat to others. Actionable adviceListen to your customers and interact as much as you can with them. They have all the answers you probably are looking for. Also, be prudent in terms of what feedback and advice you act upon because not every piece of advice is supposed to be taken up and acted upon. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsSmriti's goal for the next 12 months is to get more people to invest.

Today's guests are brothers Shane and Josh Rogers, co-founders of RPM Training. Founded in 2012, RPM was born out of the idea that legit, purposeful functional training is the foundation for a truly full and adventurous life. It all started with jump ropes. Shane and Josh began noticing the frustration their fellow gym members were having over completing the dreaded double-under jump rope workout. They scoured the market for the best jump ropes out there only to find critical flaws in every one they tried. So, they took it upon themselves to build a jump rope unlike any other. In addition to jump ropes, the company also recently announced the launch of Atom, a first of its kind virtual functional training program.

BIO: Harry Spaight is a Keynote Speaker, Coach, and Author of Selling with Dignity-Your Formula for Life-Changing Sales Results. STORY: Harry invested in mobile homes in Georgia without researching. He trusted a young man he knew through the father. In just three months, the houses were run down, and the tenants refused to pay rent. Harry lost over $100,000 that he'd made from selling his home. LEARNING: Get a financial advisor that you trust and consult before making an investment decision. Collaborate with the right people. Do your research.   “Stick with what you're doing and get better at it.”Harry Spaight  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/harryspaight/ (Harry Spaight) is a Keynote Speaker, Coach, and Author of https://amzn.to/3DYaR4n (Selling with Dignity-Your Formula for Life-Changing Sales Results). After spending several years in mission work, Harry has been succeeding in Sales as an Award-Winning Multi-million Dollar Sales Producer and Sales Leader for over two decades. Selling successfully can be achieved with timeless principles. Putting others over self, being a good listener, and doing the right thing all go a long way towards growing a successful business. Worst investment everIn the early 2000s, Harry met this young guy who was a real go-getter. He played golf with his dad, and the three built a great relationship. The young guy moved to South Carolina and got into real estate. The young man called Harry and told him about this opportunity he had investing in mobile homes. He said to him that all he had to do was make a low investment, allow him to use his credit, and the young man would take care of everything. Harry would then receive rent at the end of the month. Harry had just sold a house and made some money from it. He used this money to invest in six properties in a small town in Georgia. Soon enough, he started making passive income from the properties. He was making about $1,000 a month. Everything was working out great. About three months in, everything started going wrong. People stopped paying rent, and the property management left. Now Harry had to fly from Virginia to Georgia to collect his rent. He was shocked by what he saw. The properties were a slum. When he spoke to the tenants, they all refused to pay rent because the houses had so many issues. Now the $1,000 rent he was receiving turned into Harry paying somewhere around $4,000 a month in mortgages. The money he had made from the house sale started to dwindle. Harry went back to the young man and asked for his money back. The young man suggested that he give him three better houses, which would make him more money. Foolishly, Harry accepted the offer. His bills went up to $6,000 a month. The $100,000 he had made from the house sale was gone within a few months. Lessons learnedGet a financial advisor you trust, and bounce your ideas off of them before putting your money down. Andrew's takeawaysYou cannot build a sustainable business without relying on others. So spend time thinking about who you're committing to do something with because chances are, you're going to be with them a lot longer than you think. Take time to think through every investment and do thorough research before signing off on it. Actionable adviceHave a team of smart people around you. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsFor the next 12 months, Harry's goal is to get his book https://amzn.to/3DYaR4n (Selling with Dignity-Your Formula for Life-Changing Sales Results) into the hands of 1000s of people.

BIO: Satima Meanlamai, nicknamed Tao, is the founder of the Vietnam Value Investor group, Thailand. STORY: When Satima started investing in the stock market, she'd only invest in companies she liked and hardly took time to study other stocks or learn more about the companies she invested in. Though lucky initially, this investment strategy didn't work out for Satima in the long run, and she lost almost all her savings. LEARNING: Invest in yourself and never stop learning. Move beyond home country bias and invest in global stocks.   “Hang around people who motivate you to learn.”Satima Meanlamai  Guest profileSatima Meanlamai, nicknamed Tao, is the founder of the https://www.facebook.com/vvinvestor (Vietnam Value Investor group), Thailand. She works full-time as an architect but believes long-term stock investing in Vietnam would grow her savings with less effort. Her motto is, “When in doubt, just keep investing and learning.” Worst investment everWhen Satima started investing, she didn't know much about the financial industry, P/E ratio, dividends, etc. She would invest in the companies she likes. She barely looked at the details of the companies. Satima got lucky, and the stocks grew, and she made a bit of return. Satima then decided to get more aggressive and put all her savings into the stock market. Again, she barely looked at the details of the companies she invested in. Five years later, economies slowed down, and her stocks started drying up. Lessons learnedInvest in yourself and never stop learning. Andrew's takeawaysMove beyond home country bias and invest in global stocks. Don't get stuck on beginner's luck and think that investing is easy. Keep investing and learning.

BIO: Jack McColl, the founder of Credit Stacking, has the knowledge and in-depth understanding of the credit stacking strategy. He has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs and been a part of growing multiple 7-figure businesses. STORY: Jack lived in Bali for three months when he was 26. He saw an opportunity to create an Airbnb business there, got a few houses, and hired locals to help manage day-to-day business activities. He paid rent and wages in cash, but problems from the landlords and his staff were all he got. Jack barely made any returns from the venture. LEARNING: Do a lot of market research before you venture into any business. Finance your deals with 0% interest business credit.   “The more you can borrow, the more you can make, and the higher chance of success you're going to see in any business venture.”Jack McColl  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/jackmccoll/ (Jack McColl), the founder of https://www.creditstacking.com/ (Credit Stacking), has been featured on MarketWatch, Disrupt Magazine, Yahoo Finance, and many other publications and podcasts for his knowledge and in-depth understanding of the https://go.creditstacking.com/start-case-study-a (credit stacking strategy). Jack has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs and been a part of growing multiple 7-figure businesses. He has accessed multiple six figures in credit lines. He's funded multiple business startups with this money, and he's shown thousands of other entrepreneurs how to do the same thing. You can trust that the Credit Stacking education and mentorship are in a class of their own, taught by industry experts. Check out Jack's https://go.creditstacking.com/start-case-study-a (case study) that shows the exact steps he used to get approved for a half-million dollars. Worst investment everWhen Jack was 26, he moved to Bali, Indonesia, and lived there for three months. During that period, he saw an opportunity to create an Airbnb arbitrage business with his brother. They hired locals to help them with the day-to-day management of the venture. The brothers financed the business venture with their cash and paid all payments, including paying the workers, using that cash. Unfortunately, these people didn't deliver on what they were supposed to. The business was suffering from poor reviews and ratings on AirBnB, and the brothers were having issues with landlords who refused to rectify the problems with the houses, yet they had already paid rent in full. It turns out, running a business abroad from home is not a walk in the park. Jack regretted not doing more research before embarking on this venture. Lessons learnedDo a lot of market research before you venture into any business. Vet and hire high-quality talent to help manage the business. Finance your deals with 0% interest business credit. It's safer because you can charge it back if the service providers don't deliver. It also gives you more time because you're not paying interest. Andrew's takeawaysSetting up a business in a foreign land is hard, so don't be overconfident and overlook the challenges. Anytime you can protect your purchase. Do it. Actionable adviceHave as much access to capital as you can because the more access you have, the stronger you will be in any business negotiation or business venture. You don't even have to have money. You just need to have access to cash. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsJack went from zero to getting approved for half a million dollars in credit. And so, over the next 12 months, his goal is to get approved for another half a million dollars because he wants a total of a million dollars of approved credit.

Worst investment everCatherine and her husband bought a residential property at the markets' peak. Now bearing in mind, she was a financial advisor, and her husband was a mortgage advisor. Seven years later, they sold that property for the same amount they bought it. Catherine and her husband held on to so much self-judgment as financial professionals.

LEARNING: Explore who you truly are and then build on that. Age should not stop you from dreaming big.   “Whether we want to believe it or not, we are needed.

Worst investment everJohn's worst investment ever was investing in what others thought of him. He let these opinions take over his inner voice and form his identity. He believed people when they told him that he was too young to know enough. John let such things dim his energy, youthful exuberance, and creativity. Yet, these are some of his greatest strengths. It took him about nine years and a lot of soul searching to finally realize that other people's voices should not have a place in his mind. Lessons learnedIf you're good enough, you're old enough. Age should not stop you from dreaming big. The time is here and now. If you take your shot and miss, well, at least you took the shot, and you'll learn from making that mistake. Andrew's takeawaysLearn how to form your own ideas and formulate opinions without opposing everybody. Explore who you truly are and then build on that. Actionable adviceIf you're struggling to find your true identity, call your inner circle and ask them what they think of you as a person and a professional. Write those descriptive words down and then look at them later. Ask yourself which of these descriptive words align with you, and then start to ingrain that in your brain. With time, they become your norm. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsJohn's number one goal for the next 12 months is to have a robust library of digital courses that are all about unlocking one's growth on various levels.

BIO: Manuj Aggarwal is an engineer, inventor, author, and entrepreneur. STORY: Manuj was convinced by a dentist to get into forex trading, an area he had no idea how it worked. He traded $75,000 and lost it in under an hour. LEARNING: Learn how to control your risk. There are no short shots.   “Before you go into the market, learn about volatility, probability, and money management.”Manuj Aggarwal  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/manujaggarwal/ (Manuj Aggarwal) is an engineer, inventor, author, and entrepreneur. He is currently working on a groundbreaking AI-based technology that builds meaningful relationships and establishes thought leaders at scale on auto-pilot. He uses behavioral science and AI to help companies solve complex problems, gain traction, and increase revenue.

His popular entrepreneurial podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/bootstrapping-your-dreams-show/id1453077497 (Bootstrapping Your Dreams) got ranked as Top 100 next to Tony Robbins, Gary Vee, and Tim Ferriss. Worst investment everWhen the 2008 financial crisis hit, Manuj lost 50% of his investment portfolio. He had relied on a financial advisor to build the portfolio, which hadn't brought any significant returns in the 10 years he'd held it. After the loss, Manuj decided to learn how to manage his money and invest independently. As Manuj learned about investing in the stock market, he met a dentist who told him that he also wanted to learn about it, but it was too dull. The dentist said he knew someone experienced in forex trading and would trade for them. Even though Manuj didn't know much about forex trading, he was curious about the high returns. He put in a few dollars, and the first trade went well. He decided to trade again, and he put in $75,000. The transaction didn't go well, and he lost all the money in under an hour. Lessons learnedLearn how to control your risk. There are no short shots. Andrew's takeawaysNo financial advisor works for free. Know how yours is compensated for helping you.

BIO: Anthony Iannarino is a writer, a speaker, an entrepreneur, and an author of three books. STORY: Anthony invested $1,200,000 in two brothers working on a revolutionary nanoparticles project. When they needed more money, he found the brothers a good investor, but they decided to go with another who required them to move from their hometown. Halfway through the project, the brothers decided they didn't want to work on it anymore and moved back home, killing the project. LEARNING: When getting into a high-stakes investment, have a solid contract that makes you part of the decision-makers.   “Whenever you go into an investment, you're not betting on the horse; you're betting on the jockey.”Anthony Iannarino  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/iannarino/ (Anthony Iannarino) is a writer, a speaker, an entrepreneur, and an author of three books on sales; https://amzn.to/3rwUtW7 (The Only Sales Guide You'll Ever Need), https://amzn.to/3xNkmlJ (The Lost Art of Closing), and https://amzn.to/3dcUXZh (Eat Their Lunch). He writes and publishes every day at http://www.thesaleblog.com (www.thesaleblog.com). Worst investment everAnthony happened to know about two brothers who were working on a revolutionary project around nanoparticles. What they were doing with nanoparticles was something that no one else had been able to do. No one seemed to believe in their project, but Anthony did. His company invested $1,200,000 in the project, and they started building the equipment they needed. They realized that they needed more extensive equipment along the journey, which meant more money. Anthony's company didn't have the cash injection required, but they agreed to help the brothers find investors. Anthony found them a $10 billion company that would give them everything they needed for the projects. They would even provide them with a bridge loan to ensure that everything would be okay during the entire process. Unbeknownst to Anthony, the brothers talked to another person in northern Ohio who wanted to own the whole project. He promised them $500,000 and a salary of $150,000 salary each. But, the brothers had to move to northern Ohio to be near all of the equipment. Anthony advised them against this deal, but the brothers took it. After a few months, the brothers decided that the salary was not enough for them and they didn't want to live there anymore. It became impossible to see the project to the end without the brothers' input. And just like that, Anthony lost his $1,200,000 investment. Someone leaked the IP to someone who created a different way to do the nanoparticles project. Lessons learnedWhen getting into a high-stakes investment, have a solid contract that makes you or your representative part of the decision-makers. Whenever you go into an investment, you're not betting on the horse; you're betting on the jockey. And so, if the jockey is unreliable, you're betting on the wrong jockey. Be careful about the sunk cost fallacy. Andrew's takeawaysWhen investing in businesses, particularly startups, keep in mind that a tremendous amount of resource management is involved, so every decision matters. When deciding on an investment, consider, at the very least, if you trust the owner, if their idea is viable, they're able to execute the vision, and they have the capital. Actionable adviceWhen investing, you have to trust more than just the individual; you must trust that they're the right person to bring that product or idea to life.

BIO: Mike Lung is the Director of Brokerage at Allendale Inc, which is best known for specializing in the Agriculture sector since 1985, working with farmers, ranchers, merchandisers, and others to hedge their risk when it comes to buying and selling agricultural products/inputs. STORY: Mike got into the wheat market without a plan or any research. The market went down and saw him lose his investment. LEARNING: Always have a defined exit plan before you get into any trade. Use futures and options for effective risk management.   “Have a plan of attack, do your research and really know what you're getting yourself into before you get into a trade.”Mike Lung  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/lungmichael/ (Mike Lung) is the Director of Brokerage at https://www.allendale-inc.com/ (Allendale Inc), which is best known for specializing in the Agriculture sector since 1985, working with farmers, ranchers, merchandisers, and others to hedge their risk when it comes to buying and selling agricultural products/inputs. During his time at Allendale, Mike has had to help navigate his clients through trade wars, COVID fear, drought concerns, packing house fires, and much more. These types of events drew him deeper into the commodity rabbit hole to figure out what exactly makes the markets tick. He is currently working towards a Chartered Market Technician designation and will be diving into getting his CFA afterward. Mike has been quoted in articles by Reuters, Agri-Pulse, Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network, Bloomberg, and more. Worst investment everMike jumped into the wheat market with the hope of making good returns. At the time, there were rumors that Russia would be cutting its export program and increasing tariffs. This meant that that business was all going to come flocking to the US. So he got into it. Then the price started going down, but Mike was still confident with the market and kept putting in more. Prices just kept going down. While Mike didn't take a big hit, the downward market spiral took a lot of his confidence, and he eventually decided it was time to cut off the trade. Lessons learnedWhen going into something, especially if it's on a speculative basis, make sure that you have a defined exit. Learn how to use futures and options for effective risk management. Andrew's takeawaysIf your exit plan is a stop loss that's automatically executed, accept that stock will always bounce back. The main thing is you're just trying to prevent catastrophic loss.

BIO: Thanawit Ounsakul is a Petroleum Engineer with enthusiasm for business and the people behind it. He is a long-term investor who has been riding the financial wave since 2006 and blogs about his investment views. STORY: Thanawit came across a stock whose valuation seemed ok, and analysts said it would go up drastically. He bought it without further research only to make a 50% loss a year later. There was no hope of the stock rising because demand for the company's commodity had shifted. LEARNING: Don't depend on quantitative analysis only; use qualitative analysis too to value a company. Buy cyclical stocks when PE is expensive and sell when they're cheap.   “Find your investment style and try to turn it from good to great.”Thanawit Ounsakul  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/thanawit-ounsakul-ab57958b/ (Thanawit Ounsakul) is a Petroleum Engineer with enthusiasm for business and the people behind it. He is a long-term investor who has been riding the financial wave since 2006 and blogs about his investment views. Worst investment everIn October 2011, Thanawit came across a commodity stock that went down to $40 from its all-time high of about $60. The valuation looked very cheap, with the price to earnings at less than 10x and debt to equity of less than one. Analysts were saying it would go to $80. Thanawit did some math and figured it would be an outstanding stock to buy. So he bought it at $30, then the price moved up to $45, and he just kept on buying on the way up. A few months later, in March 2012, the price started going down, and it got back to $30, the price he first had bought it at. Thanawit was confident and bought more positions expecting the stock to rebound. But the price kept going down. Thanawit decided to research what was going on with the company—which he should have done before buying the stock. He learned that the demand for that commodity had shifted. Basically, the sales kept dropping quarter after quarter. Because of loss aversion, Thanawit didn't want to sell until November 2012, when he got extremely stressed about it. He spoke to one of his lecturers from university who pointed out that Thanawit's investment was a sunk cost and advised him to look forward, not backward. So he sold his stock making about 50% loss. Lessons learnedBe aware of the value trap that makes you value a company depending on quantitative analysis only without including qualitative analysis as well. Don't evaluate a company based on past earnings only; use future evaluation as well. Let go of the looser stock as soon as you can. Andrew's takeawaysBe careful because investing is a physical activity, and many people go into it not realizing that, and then they lose control of their emotions. Just because someone's an analyst doesn't mean that they're necessarily a great stock picker. Buy cyclical stocks when PE is expensive because that means they're at the bottom of their earnings cycle, and then sell when they're cheap. Actionable adviceTo adopt any principle or repeat a policy throughout your life, you must feel good about it. Find your style and try to turn it from good to great. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsThanawit's number one goal for the next 12 months is to publish a well-written investment article as often as he can so that his followers can be at least one inch closer to the investment world.

BIO: Sakthivel Thevar is a highly sought-after international speaker and Maximum Performance coach within the business and corporate circles. STORY: Sakthivel was looking for a mentor when he first joined the corporate world. Without much thought into it, he went with the first guy who offered to mentor him. He didn't gain much from the mentor even after working with him for months. The mentor was just not the right fit. LEARNING: Be clear about the kind of people you want to invest in. Take your time, don't rush when finding a mentor.   “Just as you don't blindly invest in a house, look at the options available for you when picking a mentor.”Sakthivel Thevar  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/sakthivel-thevar/ (Sakthivel Thevar) is a highly sought-after international speaker and Maximum Performance coach within the business and corporate circles, starting his career in the most challenging way possible as a military officer and Airborne Ranger in the Singapore Armed Forces. Worst investment everWhen Sakthivel left the military, he decided to join the financial industry as an advisor. His goal was to make a difference to people. Because he didn't know much about being an entrepreneur, Sakthivel decided to invest in a mentor. He went out and talked to several people. Then this guy came up to him and told him that he could be his mentor. Sakthivel didn't think twice. He decided to work with him. Eight months later, Sakthivel's business was tanking, and he could barely pay his bills. When he couldn't afford to buy his daughter a book she wanted, he realized that he had made a wrong investment. He had invested his time and business with the wrong person because he didn't do his due diligence to check other options. He chose a mentor blindly without first figuring out what to look for in a mentor. He just decided this guy was the one and just went for it. Lessons learnedWhen choosing a mentor, find out whether they're in line with what you believe in. Be clear of who you want to invest your time in and if they'll be able to bring you to where you want to be. Take your time, don't rush when finding a mentor. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Learn to say no to people who are not the right match for you. Andrew's takeawaysTake the time to do the research, and the benefits will come. Time is the only real resource that we have. It allows us to do the things that we want to do. Use it well. Get the right boss. So many people get stuck in situations where they're with the wrong people, and they stay out of convenience. Don't walk away from what works. Actionable adviceBe clear about what you're looking for when you're thinking of investing your time in learning something, especially from someone. Be clear of the outcome or the things that you require from this person. Then ask yourself whether this person can bring you in that direction.

Focus exclusively on your customer and their needs.   “Alignment means tapping into your purpose for why you are here in the first place.”JB The Wizard  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/jbthewizard/ (JB The Wizard) received his name from his clients when seemingly hard-to-explain breakthroughs were happening in business when he was simply focusing on the individual. He has a degree in Pre-Medical Exercise Physiology, acted in Hollywood films, Television, and Theater, is an award-winning director, and now advises CEOs, Celebrities, and Top Salespeople on exactly what to focus on to ensure that every other personal and business dream, comes true. Worst investment everJB started his journey to self-development when he was a kid, and by the time he was an adult, he was an alignment expert. But still, there was always this desire to get more clients and make more money. He spent over 14 years studying everything he could about marketing. From online marketing to squeeze pages to landing pages and everything in between. JB believed these skills would make him more money than working with clients to help them find alignment. But with time, JB realized that what his clients were paying him more for was not his Facebook marketing skills or his squeeze pages, not any of that. It was happiness, mental freedom, the awareness that he has, and the alignment that he helped them find. So his worst investment ever was spending so much time trying to learn something else while he already had the skill clients were willing to pay for. Lessons learnedAlignment means tapping into your purpose for why you're here in the first place. Be ready to say no to many things if you want to stay in alignment and keep things moving forward. When something is in your alignment, it doesn't take discipline to do it; it's just a behavior that comes naturally. Andrew's takeawaysBy focusing exclusively on your customer, you discover their needs and wants, and then you can serve those. Part of alignment when it comes to attracting customers is making sure that you understand your clients' needs and provide the services and support for those needs. Once you do that, there isn't any better marketing than that. Actionable adviceYou already have the answer. You know who you are, and that's what you want to take action towards. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsJB's number one goal for the next 12 months is to increase the number of clients he works with from three to eight people per month.

Today's guest has wonderful Instagram posts, many of them covering her work with twice-exceptional adults. I'm a fan of hers, and she's a fan of the podcast, so it's exciting to introduce her to the Embracing Intensity audience!   Aileen Kelleher is a licensed clinical social worker, therapist, and coach. Her therapy practice in Chicago specializes in helping gifted and twice-exceptional children build social-emotional skills, self-compassion, and confidence to recover from anxiety, depression, and other mental health difficulties. Her international coaching practice focuses on helping gifted and 2E women harness their talents to help them find fulfillment and fun in their personal, professional, and social lives.   Show Highlights:   Why Aileen is intensely passionate about working with 2E people and sharing tools and resources How Aileen's personal brand of intensity manifests in her passion and her ability to embrace conflict and argumentative engagement; she appears intimidating to others and feels emotions deeply Growing up, Aileen experienced bullying from her peers that put her “on guard” with anxiety and fear where there was the capacity for negative emotions; she also had an early sense of social justice How Aileen identifies now as a 2E person who has anxiety, depression, and some ADHD characteristics In school, Aileen was a student who was eager to please her teachers and experienced solid support from her mother; she struggled to fit in and be accepted with peers How, as she grew older, she began challenging authority, rebelling, and calling out injustice How being from a large, Irish Catholic family trained her to use direct bluntness that not everyone accepts How Aileen learned to tone herself down and tune herself out by escaping in reading books and watching TV; in later life, she numbed herself through substance abuse to “check out” from reality How Aileen experienced her out-of-control intensity through raging at people as a young person and now uses writing, exercise, and art as ways to maintain control How Aileen has learned not to be “the biggest voice” in the room but to lift up and make room for the voices of others in community and collaboration How Aileen uses her fire for good by being helpful and learning all that she can about what she feels passionate about; she has also learned to admit her mistakes and keep going How Aileen helps other 2E adults find meaning, joy, and purpose in their lives How relationships with family and friends have helped Aileen learn to reach out for help and trust herself Why Aileen likes helping others define and find their personal values How ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) helps gifted kids figure out what they care about beyond simply proving how smart they are Parting words from Aileen: “You are OK just the way you are, even if you feel like you don't belong in a certain situation. That doesn't mean that there is something fundamentally wrong with you, and it's OK to ask for help if you need it. Gifted and 2E can have full and satisfied lives, and the fact that we are different shouldn't stop us from pursuing what we want--and what everyone else gets to have.” Resources:   Find Aileen on Instagram or at www.coaching4gifted.com.
