When you reach a certain degree of success in your journey as a founder, it's important that you focus on rebranding yourself as a CEO. This will allow you to take your business to the next level! In this week's episode, Jamie Lieberman, founder, and CEO of Hashtag Legal, shares what she has learned as one of the few lawyers working in the entrepreneurial space.About Jamie Lieberman:Jamie is an accomplished lawyer and an entrepreneur. She founded Hashtag Legal to fill a gap that she noticed in the digital business world. Jamie is driven by her desire to serve her clients in the most meaningful way possible, and she always aims to leave things better than she found them.Episode highlights: By really listening to the issues that your customers/clients are experiencing, you will be able to respond in the most impactful way because you will understand exactly what they are experiencing. (06:22) Hiring the right people and finding a community will help you deal with the loneliness and fear of being an entrepreneur. (11:20) Building and running a business is a marathon, not a sprint. Don't rush any part of the process, and ensure that you build strong foundations from a legal, data, analytics, and people perspective. These will set you up for success from the early days, and will help you avoid making mistakes in the future. (13:28) To take your business Beyond 8 Figures (and be a guest on Beyond 8 Figures), you need to stop thinking of yourself as a founder and start thinking of yourself as a CEO. One of the most valuable things you can do as a CEO is to learn to delegate. (18:58) Jamie defines success as leaving things better than you found them. We agree with her; your entrepreneurial journey should be about helping others in some way, and this mindset will allow you to be more empathetic towards your clients. (24:18) Jamie's best advice for entrepreneurs:“You need to reassess your role as founder, and stop thinking of yourself as someone who has just created something that is happily moving along, to reframe your brand as CEO.” (20:34) Once your business is up and running, it's important that you step into the role of CEO, which requires you to think and act differently than you did when you were a founder.Connect with Jamie: LinkedIn Instagram Website Follow Beyond 8 Figures: LinkedIn Twitter Website

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and host Cynthia Garcia is kicking it off by doing a deep dive on one of the main pillars of the ITN model: mental nutrition. Cynthia gives a recap on how the Transformational Nutrition model was created after she hit rock bottom and realized that she needed to take care of her overall health一including what was going on in her mind. She gets candid about her lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression, and shares some tools that have worked for her to manage her emotions. Experiencing poor mental health can affect so many aspects of life, including how you react, handle stress, and relate to others. Factors like brain chemistry, genetics, and trauma often contribute to mental health, and unfortunately, they're mostly out of our control. Like Cynthia, many people were raised in environments where mental health wasn't taken seriously or talked about, and that can lead to serious repercussions. Slowly by surely, that narrative is changing and there are more techniques and practices to help cope with negative emotions. Join Cynthia as she discusses her mental health journey, how she's learned to process her emotions, and tools that have been instrumental for her healing. In today's episode, you'll discover: How mental health fits into our overall view of wellbeing and nutrition Information and statistics about the mental health crisis in the US today Why nutrition coaches need to focus on more than just diet and exercise Learning how to process pain instead of numb it Ways to get out of your head and into your feelings Important Links: Show notes for this episode Resources Mentioned: Transformation Generation Facebook group Learn more about becoming a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach Watch the Dream Career video series Follow Us: Visit our website Follow us on Instagram Follow us on Facebook Connect with ITN student, Eric Hall, on his website

Are you currently trapped in an infinite set of challenges that have been overwhelming you for a long time now? Are you aware of the psychological constructs you've lived with all this time? How do we really build a successful life? How do we really live the life we've been dreaming about? In today's episode of the Untrapped podcast, Rob joins us again as we discuss sacred stewardship in line with the importance of dealing with the identification we have with what runs in our minds. Here, we talk about quantum reality as we counter mental constructs that we've been led to believe since we were a child. Untrap yourself in your psychological time and be present in the NOW. Inspire and aspire before your life expires. “It's harder the more deeply identified your identification with your psychology is, but you always have the ability to improve upon it. You've been granted the resources to do it naturally. In fact, if you could peel off all of the mental fiction, that's what would be left. You don't have to find or build it. You've already been given it.” – Rob Why do you have to listen to today's episode. 03:03 – A map is not the reality; it is just an abstraction. Same as how your mind is not who you are but is a tool you should maximize towards a better life. 06:29 – There may be times when we confuse quantum reality with mental constructs. Think not about the past. Think not about the future. Instead, be present in the NOW. 11:02 – What are the differences between fear, anxiety, and worry? Learn from Rob's perspective. 18:13 – You get addicted because you become dependent on something outside of you, even when the truth is that you are not benefitting from it; you just believe that you do. 23:08 – Rob defines ‘sacred stewardship' with me as we discuss how one can truly understand and accept it. Key Takeaways “Once you get access to that grounding, when you find the ground, it's like you're swimming and you're kicking, and you're hyperventilating, but at some point, you notice in the middle of this black sea, there's a little island that you can stand on. When you find that thing, you become grounded. It's like you can channel everything through that.” “The mind is not who we are; it's a tool that we've been granted.” “Fear is something you know, and it's happening now, so fear is a present response. Worry is something that's known but is not happening now, so you're rehearsing for fear. Anxiety is something unknown that's not happening now, so the ego tries to define it, and now you're creating a layer of worry over the top of your anxiety.” “When you add anything to I am, it's something you have, and you can't be what you have.” “It requires grounded consciousness to truly accept sacred stewardship, to understand what it even means.” “Sacred stewardship is taking that sacred gift, that uniqueness, that deep passion, that deep I am-ness, and accepting that that is something that you have to give.” Connect with Keith Facebook Instagram YouTube LinkedIn Website Resources/People Mentioned: My Website: Official Site Keith Kalfas My Podcast Page: The UNTRAPPED Podcast Dr. Wayne Dyer: Website Essentia Water: Website Dr. Joe Dispenza: Website Gregg Braden: Website Are you looking to maximize your productivity in the field?

Are you torn between your passion and your profession? Many people dream of earning passive income and achieving financial independence without being tied to jobs they dislike. It can seem like these are two mutually exclusive concepts, but fortunately, there are ways to make it work. In this episode of The Mentee Podcast, Justin Donald shares his experiences in the real estate ventures sector and offers advice on becoming a lifestyle investor. He also talks about buying back your time and how your passion and profession can both lie on a single plane. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation: Continuous cash flow is key to financing the lifestyle you want Choose who you involve in your business ventures wisely to get the best offers Quality trumps quantity when managing your team Buy back your time and earn back your life [9:15] Justin's Journey of Becoming a Lifestyle Investor Justin's humble beginnings in entrepreneurial investing date back to his college days, when he first had to fend for himself and keep his expenses in check. He started his own company, which was under the umbrella of another company, and he quickly realized he was good at working with people and inspiring them. Justin learned that organizations that provide room to scale higher are harder to leave. The desire to maximize determines the kind of life you will build, and it really worked for him. [12:35] Lifestyle Investing Tips The more money you have to spend, the more you can increase your lifestyle investments. You can start with a simple income-generating opportunity and grow it to meet immediate cash flow. With a continuous cash flow, you'll be able to finance the lifestyle you want. [18:09] Justin's First Trailer Park Business Venture The first trailer park Justin bought only had one park-owned home in it. He proceeded to buy some more from someone who had owned several homes and wanted to quit the business. Justin later realized he made a great mistake because mobile home park investing requires you to break even on home rent. [22:07] Running a Maintenance Company Justin is the co-founder of a single-family home rental maintenance company called IFM Restoration. They started as a service-based company with few employees but gradually grew as demand for their services did. With the addition of their own proprietary software, IFM Restoration transitioned into a tech company. Having raised funds from various S3 ventures, they grew to be one of the largest vendors and service companies on the market. [27:27] Venture Capital Investing Today, Justin stands among the top owners of mobile home parks in the US and is actively buying more. For those looking to join the business, he advises that you buy from baby boomers and retirees directly without getting a broker involved for better offers. [35:48] Managing Your Team It's not about having a bigger team; it's all about having businesses that can operate themselves. Justin's company has managers for certain regions, operation managers, CFO's, and executive assistants. You don't have to manage all the teams. Instead, delegate work to other people, companies, and groups. [47:07] The Importance of Buying Back Your Time You can do whatever you want when you buy back your time. You don't have to overwork yourself at a job you don't even like. Running your own business gives you the freedom to do what you want. The passion for doing it will then come automatically.

Many artists don't believe they're competent at business or feel thinking about their art as a business might cheapen it. But whether you're an author, painter, musician or produce any other type of creative work, without steady cash flow, it's nearly impossible to get your work in front of the world. It's only when you think of your art as a product you sell that you can truly market and get in front of the right audience. In today's coaching conversation, Donald Miller talks with Raj Lulla, an up-and-coming novelist trying to figure out how to best market and sell his upcoming book. If you are an artist, want to become an artist, or know of an artist struggling to get their name out there and create art for a living, you're going to love today's coaching conversation.

I work with numerous high achievers who tend to pretend they're not doing incredible things in the world. I know this because I am one, and I am a mentor for GIANTS to hold power for them to see their power. In this episode, my client Randy Radul, an executive leadership team coach, shares what it's like when she unleashes her greatness unapologetically. Key points discussed in this episode: ✔️Randy collapsed her monthly income into a SINGLE $58,000 sale. She absolutely killed it, and we're celebrating her today and getting the inside scoop on her journey to claiming her giant status. ✔️Achievers that jump into entrepreneurship often lose the certainty, confidence, and self-esteem with every attempt that they are not winning. Randi considers having a program and a team holding her accountable and consistently tracking her numbers allowed her to scale and get herself out of her own way. ✔️ Self-trust became key for Randy as she handles the people she serves who are also giants. They are presidents and CEOs of organizations going through their transformations and helping them build strong, high-performing teams focused on being the best leaders aligned with their strategy. ✔️Stop being sorry for your greatness. I beckon you to unlock and unleash the GIANT in you, unapologetically and without judgment. Become unbothered by the bright flame you are, bask in the power you possess and the frequency elevator you are. ✔️You know that your success is inevitable, yet you can't quite see it right now. Be fearless enough; it's time to step into a powerful vortex of evolution. Go through this journey with me and become the best you beyond accomplishment, beyond ego and into a life of significance that awaits you. ✔️If you are like Randy and the elite few who are ready to push beyond your imagination and be transported outside of your comfort zone, you need a solid portal to help you step into the fullness of your power.
What most people don't know is that when you start a business, you have to make the conscious decision to become a marketer.Because as much as you love what you do (whether it be painting, copywriting, cooking, photography, business coaching or anything else), the reality is that without marketing, you won't ever get to do it! Not as a business, anyway.That's why you have to make the conscious decision to SELL your products or services… You need to market your brand in order to get customers, and that involves a lot of work.This is why I always say “building a business isn't for the faint of heart”... because it isn't.>>So if you're not doing the work to market yourself, don't start a business. Because it won't be successful anyway… That's just real talk!

Asked him what his real life allergies to exercise on the TV travel show he hosted. Buckle up because his dynamic personality and passion for brand development will have you racing to build your brand. His friends call him Ernburn, so call him Ernburn! Questions Could you share little bit about their journey and how you got to where you are today. Could you share that? Could you maybe share with us three important things you think our company needs to have in order to really have, at least gives off the impression of being a brand that is for their customer? Are there maybe two or three personality traits that you think an employee or a leader needs to have in an organization in order to really develop a brand that is highly associated in a positive way? Could you share with us what's the one online resource, tool, website or app that you absolutely cannot live without in your business? Could you also share with us maybe one or two books that have had the biggest impact on you? It could be a book that you read a very long time ago, or even one that you read recently, but it has a great impact on you. We have a lot of listeners who are business owners and managers who feel sometimes that they have great products and services, but they lack the constantly motivated human capital. If you're sitting across the table from that person, what's the one piece of advice that you would give them to have a successful business? Could you share with us what's the one thing that's going on in your life right now that you're really excited about? Either something that you're working on to develop yourself or your people. Where can listeners find you online? Do you have a quote or a saying that during times of adversity or challenge, you'll tend to revert to this quote, it kind of helps to get you back on track or get you back focus if for any reason you get derailed. Highlights Ernie's Journey Ernie shared that like most of our guests, they always start on the path that never seems to be like, if I were to rewind my life; I never would have thought I would have ended up where I'm at. He wanted to be an illustrator or an animator when he was a kid. And so, he was an illustration, he drew all the time, and studied illustration at the university. And when he got out of university, he got a job for an Ad agency. And he was doing concept development and that's just pre visualization of either TV commercials or print ads, or online ads or whatever. He would sketch out what a creative director or an art director would have in mind and then they would show those drafts, those pieces of art to the client. And what he learned is that he learned to become really good at visualizing language. He wasn't a writer and so he had to clearly communicate and very quickly communicate an idea visually. And so illustration led to storyboards, which led to TV commercials, radio commercials, interactive design, then print design. And so, now he was all over the place doing all kinds of creative development stuff. But that led him into brand development because branding is such a visual experience, we often think of branding as like colours, and logos and graphic design and things like that. But it's also a lot more personality conveyed through language, visual language, and verbal language, tone, vocabulary and things like that. And so, that's kind of how he started as an illustrator, and developed into a branding guy. So it took a while. Three Important Things a Company Needs to Have That Gives the Impression a Brand is For Their Customer Me: Now, branding is very important to customer experience and your brand as you said, it's not just from a marketing perspective, the image that comes out in your advertisements, or any form of posts that you put up on any social media platform, but could you maybe share with us three important things you think a company needs to have in order to really have, at least give off the impression of being a brand that is for their customer? Ernie shared that he's so grateful that Yanique is championing the customer experience because so many businesses focus on their business and not the customer experience, their business will be fine if they just focus on the customer experience. And so, congratulations and thank you for doing that. There's a singular lens. Every brand should have a singular lens that they use to focus the customer experience and those are all the touch points that a customer would see, hear, read, notice, anything like that. So, those are all touch points. Well, the customer experience is a conscious decision to filter all those touch points to reinforce a specific personality of the company. So really, we're trying, with all these customer experiences, we're trying to engage and attract a customer, make them fall in love with a business, you can't make anybody fall in love with the business unless there's a personality associated with that business. And so, defining what your brand lens or personality is really about, will then help you choose the visual elements, the pictures, colours, textures, all those kinds of things. And the verbal elements, the language, vocabulary, the tone to give that customer the glimpse into the organization's personality, they go, “Oh, my gosh, I love this company,” not just “Oh, I recognize the company.” which is a lot of branding oftentimes, as he can differentiate between one company and another company, visually, but it needs to be more than that, it needs to be more of a personal, emotional connection, like “I really am attracted to this company.” And that's done like for a convenience store chain. He was in involved a convenience store chain business for a long time. And what's neat about the convenience store business is that it's one of the very few businesses that have customers come in on a daily or multiple times per week. Like banks don't do that, retail locations don't do that. Even McDonald's, well, maybe some people that go every day, but convenience stores like they're buying fuel, customers are buying fuel, they're buying snacks, they're buying drinks, whatever. And so the environment needs to be inviting. What is it about the walls, the floors, the interior design, the extra design that reinforces the personality of the business? And then of course, you have the person behind the counter, that Maverik, the convenience store that he was developing a brand for. They called them adventure guides because they had an adventurous personality; they wanted to make it feel like people were going to the great outdoors when they would come to a store. And so, they'd call them adventure guides. So titles, the way customers were greeted. So you have this visual experience when people come in and then you have the vocabulary of like a greeting and you meet somebody who is an adventure guide instead of a clerk, or a teller, or a whatever. And then of course, all the marketing and advertising goes on top of that customer experience. I hope that answers the question in a roundabout way. Three Personality Traits an Employee or Leader Needs to Have in an Organization in Order to Develop a Brand Me: Oh, definitely it does. So there are quite a few things that you mentioned that I am definitely 100% on board with. I think sometimes also when people hear the word brand, it's like brand is highly associated with marketing, not necessarily customer experience. Are there maybe two or three personality traits that you think an employee or a leader needs to have in an organization in order to really develop a brand that is highly associated in a positive way? Because your brand can have a negative image and your brand can have a positive image. But what are some key things that you would need to ensure or would you say it should be linked to your core values? And if that's the case, what should be your strategy where recruitment is concerned? Ernie stated that there are 3 things he's going to say off the top of his head. One is Humility. And what he means by humility is oftentimes organizational leaders or employees think they know best. They have their own personal opinion and they think their personal opinion is stronger than anybody else's opinion or research. So, humility. Curiosity is the second one. Like he wants to know what their customers really think. He wants to learn as much as he can. So, humility gives us opening in our brains and our hearts for change and curiosity leads us to find the material to fill in that empty space that's relative, that's applicable. And then the third thing is, he thinks Passion. There's so much boringness going on in the world today. He wants to be surrounded by people who are enthusiastic about what they do. It doesn't matter what they do, he could care less, but he cares about the enthusiasm and the passion by which they're engaged. So, there's too many retail locations or retailers, with employees who are completely disengaged, they are there counting the minutes between breaks, can't wait to get home and so the customer experience is a huge, like empty space in those locations, those businesses. So enthusiasm, he just wants to feel some love, some passion. He doesn't care if he's ordering a Big Mac, he wants someone to be excited about it for him. So those are the three things humility, curiosity, and passion or enthusiasm. App, Website or Tool that Ernie Absolutely Can't Live Without in His Business When asked about an online resource that he cannot live without in his business, Ernie stated that Photoshop. He's learning to use HubSpot because he's been terrible as a CRM guy. He needs to do a better job with that. But he does so many things in Photoshop, because he's image oriented, whether it's illustration or even graphic define online, banners, video thumbnails, and all those. If he didn't have Photoshop, he'd be a stick in the mud. Books that Have Had the Biggest Impact on Ernie Ernie shared that the book that has had one of the most profound impacts on him is The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich by Tim Ferriss, and he has referenced it so much that his wife gives him a hard time about it. On his nightstand, he has a set of Scriptures, the Bible, this is his go to, that's his big go to book. So, he got his scriptures, and he's a faith based person, very religious. But next to that for years was Tim Ferriss' book, The 4-Hour Workweek and so he would wreck ideas from The 4-Hour Workweek and his wife would say, “Oh, are you quoting brother Ferriss again?” Because it's like he's almost like a prophet. But some of the things that he talked about that are profound to him is the Pareto principle, the 80/20 rule, becoming more efficient with your time. He also talked a lot about multiple careers instead of retirement, and working for the future, we're designed to be very creative people. So, why do we work like crazy in one career, and then hope one day we'll retire and not have to work, that's crazy. He doesn't ever want to stop working; he wants to keep doing fun, cool stuff. And so, the idea of multiple careers and mini retirements. Well, he could talk for a whole hour about Tim Ferriss and his teachings. But that was the most profound book. Advice for Business Owners and Managers to Have a Successful Business When asked about advice he would give to business owner or manager to have a successful business, Ernie shared that he would love to be able to incorporate employee compensation with customer experience so that the employees are rewarded, their compensation is structured on how much the customers enjoy their interaction, how much they appreciate the interaction. So that instead of like sales based, like always commissioned based, play the long game of, “I want to hire people that are compensated when customers or potential customers have a really good experience with them.” And then also provide that employee with the resources to wow their customers. Like being able to send a note, being able to send a very small inexpensive gift, things like that. So they're empowered and they're compensated based on their customer experience, because he knows that there will be people, that the customers will always come back to a really good experience. What Ernie is Really Excited About Now! Ernie shared that he has been going bonkers over a YouTube channel that teaches kids to draw. So he created a YouTube channel, he spends way too much time on it. But he gets to produce, he gets to do the drawing, he does the lesson. And then he edits the video. And so all the fun things and creative production that he enjoys, as well as kind of inspiring and igniting the excitement of drawing which is affordable to everybody. It's within the reach of the poorest of poor people, get a piece of charcoal and a log, and you can draw. Pencil and paper, it's super, super inexpensive. But the ability to express creativity with pencil and paper, and an iPad and procreate or whatever is just so empowering for him. And so, he's done 100 episodes in the past 2 years and the channel, it's like 4000 subscribers, it's not very big but it has been so much fun to make these videos and just have fun being creative in the YouTube world. Where Can We Find Ernie Online LinkedIn – Ernie Harker Quote or Saying that During Times of Adversity Ernie Uses When asked about a quote or saying that he tends to revert to, Ernie shared that he was writing his book, Your Brand Sucks, which was very, very hard for him, he has ADD and so kind of staying focused on that was really, really challenging. And he'd often want to give up. He'd been involved in multiple businesses, a lot of entrepreneurial businesses, and none of them met the financial goals that he had, like he wanted to build these businesses and have it sell millions of dollars worth of product or whatever, but most of the time, they just kind of broke even. And while sharing his disappointment, his frustration with a co-worker of his, an executive with him. He was listening to him (Ernie) talk about like his TV series didn't work out; he took longer to run his iron man than he thought he should, his children's book didn't sell very well. He like looked at him like, “Dude, you get credit for trying.” “You get credit for trying.” And what he thinks is impactful to him about that little mantra is that it kind of reshapes his definition of success, of not relying on success of things he can't control. Like, for example, if he wrote a book, he has very little control whether or not it sells a million copies, if it gets popular, if Oprah loves it. But he has 100% control whether or not he finishes writing the book. So, if he were to focus his success, his definition of success on things that he can control, then he could be very productive, he can write the book. Because the temptation is he's going to give up because nothing that he's done so far has met his definition of success so why even try? Instead, he did that. And so, he can do it again. Even though the sales or whatever, the financial numbers aren't spectacular, he can look back on his life and go, “I did a lot of really great stuff that I was passionate about whether or not it made money or not.” So, you get credit for trying.

In honor of April being Alcohol Awareness Month, ITN CEO and founder Cynthia Garcia is getting candid about her relationship with alcohol and offering a space to reflect on your own drinking patterns. Between mommy wine culture and so many events centered around drinking, alcohol misuse and abuse has become so normalized. Add on a global pandemic, and it's no wonder that more people under the age of 65 died from alcohol-related deaths than from Covid in 2020. What hasn't been normalized, though, are the short and long term effects of excessive alcohol use. If you're using alcohol to numb trauma or escape from pain, you might feel an immediate relief, but it doesn't provide a sustainable solution. Cynthia talks about some alternatives that she likes to use to take the edge off, like non-alcoholic mocktails. At ITN, we often ask the question, what are you really hungry for? In this case, we're asking the question, what are you really thirsty for? Can you find other ways to quench your thirst that help you find more peace and happiness? If you've been looking for tools to cut back on drinking and need some inspiration for alternative ways to wind down at the end of the day, tune in to today's episode. In today's episode, you'll discover: How Cynthia navigated drinking as the child of an alcoholic The moment that caused Cynthia to become completely sober for seven years How the pandemic changed our relationship with alcohol The connection between depression, anxiety, and alcohol consumption Tips and tools to decrease your alcohol consumption if you think it's become too much Important Links: Show notes for this episode Resources Mentioned: Transformation Generation Facebook group Learn more about becoming a Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach Watch the Dream Career video series Follow Us: Visit our website Follow us on Instagram Follow us on Facebook Connect with ITN student, Darcel Osei, on Instagram
