EP#247 - Fueled by Fire

January 29, 2021

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Staci Wallace.  You will be able to tell right off the bat that this woman is truly FUELED BY FIRE as this is also the title of her new book!

We discussed many things that relate to life but the biggest take away from me is, regardless of what someone has on the outside (success), you never know the inner battles that we all face and Staci will share her story on how she reinvented herself into the woman who truly is Fueled by Fire!

Tune in and let us know what you think!

Who is Staci Wallace?

Staci Wallace is a serial entrepreneur and leading expert in the field of business psychology and life mastery. Her specific focus is in helping CEO’s, influencers, and entrepreneurs make essential life and business hacks that lead to greater profits and ultimately building a life and business they love.

For over thirty years, Staci has been shifting the mindsets of great leaders and teams as an engaging speaker, thought leader, business executive, and author of eight books, including Fueled by Fire. Staci has shared the stage with five U.S. Presidents, helped build businesses into the hundreds of millions in revenue, and has grown and led sales teams into the hundreds of thousands. She is currently the host of The Comeback Small Business Radio Show, founder of the non-profit, EMwomen (Empowering Women), and EVP of Strategy for VOXOS, a 15 year-old telecom company bringing new-school marketing platforms to small business owners throughout the world. She is co-founder of EMpowerYOU Publishing and continues to help CEO’s and innovators bring

their bigger stories to life.

As a corporate executive, her unique business acumen and mastery strategy skills, give her a confident understanding of the physical, psychological and emotional dynamics leaders must master in scaling great companies today. She has dedicated her life to teaching leaders micro-distinctions and creative life hacks to live a balanced and deeply rewarding life while driving highly effective outcomes in the marketplace.

After a monumental life shift in 2017, where Staci and her husband chose to walk away from their executive careers for 2.5 years of servitude to the poor, they recognized that the massive gap between peace and profits could be bridged with a few micro-distinctions missed by most executives who are brilliant at company vision and often broken in the more meaningful things of life.

On a personal note: Those same life-hacks are what have fueled Staci’s marriage of 23 years and helped empower her two purposed-driven children.
Staci’s background as an avid basketball player and blackbelt in mixed martial arts, no doubt, have aided in her tenacious spirit to help leaders win in life. As a former recording artist with 5 CDs, Staci was the featured soloist for the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Olympics. Her life is living proof that we are all well-capable of breaking through natural barriers and defying the odds of self-defeating rhetoric. If you can’t find Staci on stage, in a consulting role, or on-air, chances are, she’s on a creek fishing for trout in the mountains, somewhere around the world.

EP#246 - Never Give In

EP#246 - Never Give In

January 26, 2021

There are so many reasons why one should give into:

Our excuses...

Our limited belief systems...

Our inner critic...

Our stories we made up...

Our distractions...

There are endless reasons to give in to so many things...  Especially in a technological world...

But the question is, "how memorable do you want your life to be?"

When you realize the power within, you can achieve anything, as long as you don't give into the BS, stories, excuses, limited belief systems (of yours or friends/family), and so forth.

But more importantly, is this a code you live by?  What is a code?

Find out more by listening to the podcast episode and let us know what you think!

EP#245 - The Monkey in My Head

EP#245 - The Monkey in My Head

January 22, 2021

In this podcast episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing the author of the book, "Mr. Monkey and Me," Mike Smerklo.

Mike shares the inner critic we all face and has done an amazing job of titling it, "The Monkey in my head."

I have always believed if you can make light of the inner critic within you, it takes less power over you and you can be more resilient to the words, emotions, and things it will say to you.

Check out the episode and learn more about the monkeys we all have within our heads!

Who is Mike Smerklo?

Mike Smerklo is an experienced entrepreneur, investor and business leader driven by the desire to turn ideas into reality. Having bought and scaled a small business into a publicly-traded company worth nearly a billion dollars in value, he has a deep understanding of the hard work, dedication, and grit that truly powers successful entrepreneurship. Today, as the co-founder and managing director of Next Coast Ventures, Smerklo is a champion for a new generation of entrepreneurs building disruptive companies in big markets. His new book, Mr. Monkey and Me (Scribe Media, Nov. 17 2020), is a “real talk” guide for entrepreneurs who want to cut through the noise to cultivate a mindset that supports greatness.

 

Smerklo grew up in a blue-collar family outside of Toledo, Ohio, with dreams of achieving something more with his life. After working his way through college to earn an accounting degree and moving to Chicago to launch his CPA career, he eventually talked his way into a junior analyst gig with the Wall Street investment bank Lehman Brothers. While he hated the job, surviving two years of hellish 100-hour workweeks and countless spreadsheets (so many spreadsheets) gave Smerklo a solid understanding of finance and company building. He went on to earn an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and experienced the Silicon Valley dot-com boom as an investment banker at Morgan Stanley.

 

Smerklo was recruited by legendary entrepreneurs Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz as one of the first employees of their new startup, Loudcloud. Here, he learned from the very best about what it takes to grow a company from an idea through an initial public offering.

 

Smerklo began his own entrepreneurship journey in 2003, purchasing ServiceSource, a 30-person technology services startup in San Francisco. As CEO over the next 12 years, he grew the business into a successful 3,000-person publicly-traded company with close to $300M in revenue.

 

He has developed a new perspective on entrepreneurship at the helm of the Austin-based firm Next Coast Ventures, which has backed more than 40 companies across two funds to help startup founders achieve their goals. Mike and his wife spend the bulk of their free time chasing their four children.

EP#244 - In-Tune with Self

EP#244 - In-Tune with Self

January 19, 2021

Living an information era has so many benefits but yet, also comes with an opportunity cost.

 

When we depend on information all day and that becomes our main focus, we build the muscle of the mind/ego to take over more.

 

It starts to be the leading way of life but when this happens, it is much easier to be controlled, distracted, and a loss of focus.

 

In this episode, I will share with you something to focus on that will be the beacon of light during dark times but also, the best guidance/compass system that exists.

 

No technology that man could ever come up with be more powerful of a tool than this.

In this episode, I interviewed the managing partner of, "The Successful Male - North America," Joesph DiRoma.

EP#242 - Navigating the Storm

EP#242 - Navigating the Storm

January 12, 2021

One thing that is a fact about life and nature taught us this so well is that, no matter what happens, no storm lasts forever...

But instead, storms come and go. Some last an hour, a day, a week, a month, or sometimes an entire year.

Regardless, it will never last forever.

In this podcast episode, I share with you 3 things that you can do to help calm the nervous system, calm the mind, and refocus your energy.

When we can refocus, it allows us to choose the reality and the lessons we want to gain from the situation.

When we don't, we get pulled into the chaos, and well, there is not much control you have in that department.

EP#241 - One Fine Day

EP#241 - One Fine Day

January 8, 2021

In this episode, I interviewed the author of the book, "One Fine Day."  It was my pleasure to talk and discuss what Sameer's book was about but more importantly, his life story and how life will always have triumphs and tribulations but those tribulations are there for a reason.

He will share his journey and story of what he experienced with health challenges that put his life at a stopping halt and how he realized the beauty behind all the challenges and so much more.

Tune in and let us know what you think!

Who is Sameer Bhide?

In 2017 Sameer suffered a rare hemorrhagic stroke in his cerebellum, underwent two brain surgeries, and spent a month in a medically induced coma. His new bookONE FINE DAY: Overcoming Adversity and Embracing the New Normal with Grace and Gratitude(BMB Publishing | November 2020) is his unique story of resilience and hope.

After his stroke, Sameer’s entire life came crashing down around him. From a life-changing, debilitating illness to the loss of work, and finally a divorce, his amazing story of struggle, and how he came back from the brink of despair will be an inspiration for anyone who is facing any life change or adversity. One Fine Day is a reminder that the old axiom: “The only thing that stays the same is change” is the one absolute truth we can all count on and that successful transition requires successful adaptation.

EP#239 - Utilizing Sacred Breath in the New Year

EP#239 - Utilizing Sacred Breath in the New Year

January 2, 2021

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Jen Broyles.  We discussed many things in this episode but the biggest one I thought was the most powerful was Jen's story on how breathwork transformed her life.

As an advocate for breathwork and someone who uses it daily, I can relate to her story.

Tune in and learn more about breathwork and as an added incentive to listening, Jen does a 10 minute breathwork session on the podcast that we can all use in this New Year!

Who is Jen Broyles?

Jen​​ is a Holistic Health Coach, SOMA Breathwork Instructor, and Essential Oils Specialist who helps individuals restore and optimize their health by calming the nervous system and addressing the root cause of their symptoms.

Jen has a specialty in gut health, chronic stress, and anxiety, recognizing that imbalances in the gut and an over-stimulated nervous system lead to imbalances throughout the mind, body, and spirit.

She combines nutrition, breathwork, essential oils, and other holistic modalities to help clients create a lifestyle of health and vitality. Her personal story is what inspired her to educate and guide others. She dealt with digestive issues, anxiety, and hormone imbalances for years and was unable to find relief from conventional medicine.

She left her career in pharmaceutical sales and returned to school to study integrative nutrition followed by training in essential oils and breathwork.

She believes that nourishing the mind, body, and soul with healing food, self-love, and healthy emotional processing leads to a transformative healing experience.
