In this episode, Bill is joined by Author, Speaker, Podcast Host, and Founder of Jen Du Plessis, LLC, Jen Du Plessis herself. They talk about how she was able to live a life of luxury through the years and what gives her the confidence to do all the things she does. She also shares how she shifted from earning money but not being present for her family to do both simultaneously.   Jen Du Plessis, America's Mortgage Mastery Mentor, helps mortgage loan officers and real estate agents who are overwhelmed, stressed out, and sabotaging their personal lives for the sake of their business to multiply results in record time and have the courage to say yes to their personal lives (which sometimes means saying no to clients).   During fifteen of her 37-year career in the mortgage industry, Jen has been listed in the top 1% of loan officers nationwide, spent three years in the top 200 nationally ranked originators, and has funded over $1 Billion in mortgage loans. She is recognized as an Influencer in her industry as the best-selling author of LAUNCH-How to Take Your Business to New Heights, the top podcast host of Mortgage Lending Mastery, and a highly sought and charismatic speaker; speaking on stages with such icons as Darren Hardy, Tony Robbins, and Les Brown.   Today Jen is passionate about empowering mortgage loan officers to achieve professional and personal breakthroughs so that they stop the daily chaos by identifying their priorities to gain calm to take back control of their business and life. She is guiding her coaching students to attract clients rather than chasing them. And lastly, she is devoted to helping each student's business grow exponentially rather than hitting the reset button to have the same results year after year.   She has been seen and heard on Good Morning America, Sirius/XM Radio, Voice America, and Mortgage News Network.  Jen has been featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post, is a regular contributor to Mortgage Executive Magazine and Mortgage Women Magazine, and has been recognized with the Women with Vision Award as one of the Top Women in the Mortgage Industry.   Connect with Jen at: Website: https://www.jenduplessis.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jenniferduplessis/ FB: https://www.facebook.com/JenDuPlessis22/ IG: https://www.instagram.com/jenduplessis Twitter: https://twitter.com/JenDuPlessis   Check out her podcast: https://www.jenduplessis.com/podcast/ Show notes: [1:12] Where did she get her confidence to do anything?

Show Notes: https://wetflyswing.com/381 Presented By: Jackson Hole Fly Company, FishHound Expeditions, Country Financial, Zoe Angling Group Sponsors: https://wetflyswing.com/sponsors Abbie Schuster from Kismet Outfitters is here today to talk about the amazing island fishing life at Martha's Vineyard with a focus on stripers, bluefish, albies, and bonitos. We find out how easy it is to DIY this trip and the best time to go there so that you can target all four species. We break down some tips on flats fishing, plus the recommended gear, flies, and everything nice to increase your takes and make the most out of your fishing time on the island. Abbie also talks about what it was like for a young blonde woman trying to build a career as a fly fishing guide when there weren't many women guides around yet. This is a fun one. Check it out! Martha's Vineyard Fishing Show Notes with Abbie Schuster 03:45 - Abbie went to Sweet Water Guide School. We did an episode on Sweet Water at WFS 105. 06:00 - Kismet Outfitters started in 2016 as a guide service and in 2020, she opened the fly shop in Martha's Vineyard. 11:30 - Crab patterns are the most successful for stripers. 11:50 - By end of April to May, stripers and bluefish are moving in because of the squid migration to the flats. By the end of July, the bonitos start to move in and stick around till the end of October. Then by Fall, the false albacore (albies) starts to come in. All four species can be seen during the Fall season. 15:00 - You can book a flight straight to Martha's Vineyard (the island's got an airport now) or you can also fly to Boston and then take a 1-and-a-half-hour bus ride to the ferry. The ferry ride is about 45 minutes from Woods Hole to the island. 17:40 - Abbie talks about fishing for albies which is the trickiest to catch among the 4 species. Get your fly on the water and strip as fast as you can to get their attention. 27:40 - For albies, an intermediate line is recommended (cold saltwater line), 16-20 pound fluorocarbon (around 10 feet) for the leader, and 9-10 wt for rods. 30:10 - Bonito Bunny works great for albies, also gummy minnows, and tiny deceivers. 30:50 - Bluefish are huge and mean. They'll bite through your line and net. Big flies like mackerel patterns, big deceivers, and big clausers with a lot of movement work great with them. 34:15 - Bonitos hang out with the albies and stripers. They're super strong too. 40:30 - Abbie says albies are not good for eating. Bonitos taste amazing. Stripers are ok. Bluefish are great when smoked. 43:10 - They have a Derby Fishing Contest at Martha's Vineyard where participants win by catching the biggest fish per species. The winner takes home a boat. 52:10 - An average albie is about 7-pound, 24-inches. 1:02:00 - Abbie gives a shoutout to Harrison Anglers - a guide service in Northfield, MA. 1:02:30 - Advice: Practice casting in the wind because saltwater fishing in MV is pretty tricky.

We find out how he targets migrating versus holder fish, when you should be fishing the shallow water, and how to get your swing to slow down. This one is jam-packed with tips and takes on exact time, location, position.. it's all here! Brian is very articulate in elaborating techniques that you can already imagine how it works. Check it out right now! Skeena River Show Notes with Brian Niska 12:00 - Brian and Jeff Pieroway designed some Spey rods called Metal Detector 13:00 - Brian tells the story of how they bought a guiding lodge business at Skeena riverside which was previously owned by a German family 20:00 - Fishing season starts in mid-March at Skeena 26:00 - He explains how slowing down the cast is the key to effective Spey casting 32:00 - Tip: If you're using running mono line, you don't have access to both sides of the river, and you're often fishing on the same side of your body, you need to find a way to incorporate some rotation to the other direction to keep your line going nice and straight. 32:55 - Tip: The older the mono line is, the better it fishes because it's got a stretch. Don't wait, put that stretch in as soon as you get it. A good way to get it stretched is to get it warm. Put it in a bowl of warm water and give it a good hard stretch. 36:00 - The busiest time of the year at Skeena Lodge is the end of August since most of the salmon species are available in August 38:10 - When people say they are going to fish the Skeena, what they really mean is that they're going to fish the Bulkley 39:45 - He talks about a picture of a 40-pound dead steelhead back in the 80s 48:45 - Brian mentioned the episode with Jeff Liskay and pointed out the tip about the importance of having a high rod tip. WFS 362 was the latest one with Jeff. 55:50 - "The anglers that are consistently successful are the ones that believe that every single bump is a fish and are willing to repeat the cast, and willing to let the fly fish its way out, they're not rushing to the next cast." 57:20 - They fish Skagit line most of the time and a little bit Scandi in the Winter 58:45 - Brian was on the River Rambler podcast 1:04:10 - The number one most common life history of a Skeena steelhead is 4 years in fresh water and 2 years in salt 1:04:30 - The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) is a long-term ocean fluctuation of the Pacific Ocean. The PDO waxes and wanes approximately every 20 to 30 years. 1:13:00 - Early September to October is a great time to fish the Skeena 1:17:00 - Malcolm Wood is a big advocate of climate change - he makes movies about climate change awareness. His latest movie is called, The Last Glaciers 1:18:50 - Brian mentioned Bob Hooton from SteelheadVoices.com 1:25:50 - Advice: When you're fishing the Skeena for the first time is plan to be mobile.

They also talk about André's hobbies and passion and how he takes care of himself by taking time to do them. André also encourages everyone to take that break from work to do the things they love.   André Brisson, P. Eng., is the host of The Impulsive Thinker Podcast, the podcast for the high-achieving ADHD entrepreneur. Andre owns an entrepreneurial consulting engineering company and recently started Tactical Breakthroughs, where he is developing the ADHD Transformation Journey program. Diagnosed late in life with severe ADHD and mild Asperger's (ASD), the mechanisms and systems he created to overcome his undiagnosed ADHD have helped him succeed. He credits his undiagnosed ADHD as the key to his success and a factor in restricting success. Since discovering how to turn his ADHD into a strength, people have sought him out for help with using their ADHD as a strength to drive success. André Brisson has a special ability in devouring and learning complex information and simplifying it for others to solve complex problems. Like most entrepreneurs, André has started multiple companies, two of which failed for various reasons.

Finally, they tackle common mistakes, and obstacles salespeople make when scaling their business. Wisdom Nuggets: Building an offer is important before reaching out to a client. An offer usually includes brand voice, marketing hooks, and a CTA. It's important to put together an offer that is appealing and speaks to the client's needs in order to increase the chances of them working with you.Pitch matters because it's the first step in getting a client to say yes to working with you. Your pitch should be well-thought-out and tailored to the specific client you're reaching out to. It's also important to have a strong understanding of what the client is looking for so you can position your offer in the best light possible.Evolving your offer is key to success in business. By always being open to change and making sure your offer is up-to-date, you'll be able to maintain strong relationships with clients.Podcast Outline: Alex: (00:18) This is Josh Troy, founder of the WFS group. What's up, man. Thanks for jumping Alex: (00:27) let's give everybody a little bit of context. We met at Jeremy's Q2, my back Q3 inner circle mastermind. It was a fantastic weekend. You presented; I was really blown away by your presentation.Alex: (01:15) There's a ton of marketing agency owners in there doing six figures a month, seven figures a month. And ultimately, we're all here to help each other out. And that's what we wanna do on this podcast today. Alex: (01:52) So what's up with Wires From Strangers? How did this come to life? Josh: (01:56) Yeah. So first of all, so wires from strangers, we also call it WFS group. We scale integrity-based sales operations. And I think that was the presentation that you heard me speak on at the mastermind. It was like my 10 best nuggets for scaling integrity-based sales operations.Alex: (03:34) A lot of people have a great offer. They have a great business, but they have sales; it's happened to me in my businesses.Alex: (05:34) So what, what are the biggest mistakes you see people usually make in their sales system.Josh: (07:12) Pitch design is one of the main ones. People don't spend enough time, really diving deep into how their offer needs to be pitched to resonate.Josh: (10:01) Offer, design pitch, design, process design. Alex: (13:23) A lot of the time I notice, especially because I've been in digital marketing for a while, is that not every time digital marketers care to see the process all the way throughAlex: (14:11) There's a whole lot to it to finally get them on the phone. And even after you get them on the phone to get the deal closed.Josh: (17:39) There's three things to me that I've, and I didn't always know this.Josh: (23:27) I'm 29 now I was 20.

Instagram was popping at that point. Josh: (23:56) Totally. I mean dude, at the time back, I mean just a couple years before that the only people that were producing like videos and commercials and ads were the biggest companies in the world that could pay for TV.Josh: (26:10) I'll say side note real quick. If there's somebody that's listening to this by chance, that's a server right now. The first thing that you should do is go get a job at a high end restaurant, cuz you'll triple your pay overnight doing the same exact thing.Josh: (29:50)That's it, man. So going back real quick, I'll wrap this up for you on the, on the story of like how it kind of continued to evolve is so I, I started iron wall now, the video marketing company. So that was, I, I built the entire thing from cold calling.Josh: (31:57) So I have so much strategy and structure around the first minute of a, of a cold call because here's the other thing about a cold call.Alex: (36:47) That's why, so I love sales and marketing. Like you specifically sales marketing on my end because ultimately you could apply that to anything that, that skill sort of selling.Josh: (38:33) Anything, anything that you want to be repeatable, you're gonna wanna have process documentation for.

In today's episode, Bill talks with a good friend, three-time Olympian, Speaker, and Author, Devon Harris, about how and where he started, setting big goals, and developing the right mindset. Devon also shares how he accomplished goal after goal and still pushes for his dream to inspire others to reach for theirs by speaking about his life and journey on stage.   Born on Christmas Day, 1964, Devon Harris was raised in the violent ghetto environment of Olympic Gardens in Kingston, Jamaica. The greatest gift he ever received was the belief that a positive attitude and a never say die philosophy would carry him farther than a sense of injustice and a heart filled with anger.  Devon Harris graduated from the prestigious Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in England and received a Queen's Commission in December 1985, and served in the Jamaica Defense Force officer corps until December 1992 when he retired as a Captain.   Encouraged by his commanding officer, Devon tried out for and was selected to the first Jamaican bobsled team. The team competed in the 1988 Olympic Games in Calgary, Canada, and their exploits inspired the Disney blockbuster movie Cool Runnings.   The Keep On Pushing Foundation, which he founded in 2006, aims to support and enhance the education of kids in disadvantaged communities by providing practical solutions to the challenges that are preventing them from getting educated.   Through the Keep On Pushing Foundation, Devon also works with Right to Play as an athlete ambassador. He supports Right to Play's efforts in using sport and play in refugee camps around the world to enhance child development and build community capacity.   Connect with Devon at: Website: https://www.devonharris.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/keynotespeakerdevonharris/ FB: https://www.facebook.com/keeppushing IG: https://www.instagram.com/Keeponpushing88/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/Keeponpushing88   His e-books: https://www.devonharris.com/e-books/   His free e-course: https://www.devonharris.com/courses/goals-made-easy/   Grab a copy: https://www.devonharris.com/goal-setting/   Show notes: [1:14] How Devon got focused on his life and accomplished so much [3:22] Developing mindset resilience [5:20] Rising up to the occasion and becoming an athlete [7:50] Importance of setting audacious goals [11:24] Where to find Devon [12:05] Outro Connect with Bill Bloom  Web: https://www.bloomfinancialco.com/ https://bloomfinancialco.kartra.com/page/bNJ87 Email: bill@bloomfinancial.us  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/bloomfinancial/ FB: https://www.facebook.com/retireasyoudesirepodcast     Securities and investment advisory services offered through Woodbury Financial Services, Inc.
