EP#273 - How To Be A Tightwad

April 30, 2021

In this episode, I had the pleasure of interviewing Todd Miller. ⁠

Todd has an amazing story on how he accomplished being financially independent at the ripe age of 35 years old.⁠

He shares some gems and we had some good dialogue on the topic of finances and much more.  ⁠

Tune in and let us know what you think...⁠

Who is Todd Miller?⁠

After graduating cum laude with a degree in finance from the University of Florida, Todd started working for a Fortune Global 500 company.  Less than a year later, he got laid off due to the Great Recession.  During this difficult period, he committed to living on his terms and becoming financially independent.  ⁠

Todd dreamed of working less, experiencing more, and spending time with the most important people in his life.  For the next 11 years, he worked in financial services, guiding thousands of people through the mortgage approval process.  All the while, he saved, invested, and built passive income for the future.  Then, at 35 years old, Todd accomplished his goal and became Financially Independent.  ⁠

He went on bucket list adventures around the world and eventually started TightwadTodd.com.  This coaching business is a way for him to follow another passion, helping others.  This coaching business is a way for him to follow another passion, helping others.  Its mission is financial education, so everyone can achieve their goals faster, live free, and have more full lives.

EP#271 - Inner State to Lead

EP#271 - Inner State to Lead

April 23, 2021

In this episode, I had a great time talking with Karl Lashkari who is a Men's Leadership Coach.

He shares some life nuggets, especially about his story and how to lead through your own inner state.  

I highly recommend this episode.

Who is Karl Lashkari?

Karl Lashkari is a former Management Consultant and currently serves as a Men’s Leadership Coach. Karl transformed his health and his life by discovering his true self and connecting with his power and his heart as part of a three-year journey recovering from a chronic illness, one which kept him mostly housebound. 

Through this journey, Karl learned a great deal about the importance of aligning his mind, emotions, nervous system, and physical body, and how to balance masculine and feminine traits within himself to become a purposeful and impact-driven leader. 

Karl facilitates men’s workshops and will be hosting a leadership intensive, The Leadership Brotherhood, in 2021. The purpose of this transformational program is to help other men discover and express themselves powerfully and truthfully to live a fulfilled life and become an inspiring, emotionally intelligent leader who creates thriving and unified businesses and intimate relationships.

EP#270 - Heart Over Mind

EP#270 - Heart Over Mind

April 21, 2021

In this episode, I share something that I been wanting to share for some time.

 

This is a concept I believe is causing much turmoil and a decrease in mental health.

 

This is living life to where you let the mind lead you throughout this process.

 

Don't get me wrong, we need the mind to learn, grow and evolve but in this information era, we have depended all on the mind and forgot the power of the heart.

 

In this episode, I share the power of the heart and why it is critical at this time of where humanity is, to start to shift their mind-led focused life and turn it over to a heart-centered focused life.

 

The mind makes things black and white while the heart is what gives color to the world. Tune in and let me know what you think!

EP#268 - Creating Resiliency

EP#268 - Creating Resiliency

April 13, 2021

In this episode, I will share something that we will all face.

In my most recent book, "A Walk in the Dark," I discuss this in full depth but it is the hardships we will face in life.  It is stressful times.  It is the obstacles that we will all face no matter what.

But, what I will share in the episode though, is how to not allow them to be distractions but rather, be motivated to challenge yourself to stay focus, nail the target and continue to move forward.

I will be sharing a personal story I went through this past weekend to share how building resiliency helps in the process.  Let me just say, it wasn't an easy weekend as I kept facing obstacle after obstacle, but the one thing was, I didn't let it distract me from the target of what I was going to achieve.

EP#265 - Billding Creativity

EP#265 - Billding Creativity

April 2, 2021

In this podcast, I had the opportunity to talk with Christopher Doyle.  In this episode, you will hear about how Christopher thought outside the box to solve a problem that he noticed while working in the construction field.

One of the greatest aspects of entrepreneurs is we find problems and create solutions for them.  

In this episode, Chris will talk about the struggles he experienced and faced when it came to being limited with funding for construction jobs and how thinking outside the box, helped him scale and now, he has created a company to allow others to scale at higher levels.

Tune in and let us know what you think...

Who is Christopher Doyle?

Christopher Doyle is an entrepreneur and business leader with extensive hands-on construction industry experience and a proven record of launching successful startups. He is. the founder, president and CEO of Billd, a disruptive payment solution for the construction industry that helps contractors and suppliers grow their businesses with less hassle and risk. Recognizing cash flow hurdles contractors face when purchasing materials, Doyle launched Billd to make traditional Wall Street working capital accessible to these small business owners.

Doyle cut his teeth in the construction industry, framing houses in high school at age 16 and working his way through college at Texas A&M before beginning his career in residential and commercial construction. During this time, he not only developed into a project manager supervising sales and operations, he also developed a passion for launching new business operations, opening and leading new divisions of construction companies in Dallas, Austin and Houston, Texas.

He went on to serve as director of solar operations for the Institute for Building Technology and Safety (IBTS), delving into energy efficiency and renewable energy program management and authoring numerous publications on renewable energy financing, including launching National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) residential and commercial best practices. Recognizing Doyle as a renewable energy thought leader, the founders of lending company Dividend Solar (now Dividend Finance) tapped him to oversee their contractor operations and sales. Doyle’s
leadership and tireless work ethic helped the startup thrive and secure series A funding. He was
a pivotal leader in Dividend’s first three (3) loan securitization offerings totaling over $500M.

While working with Dividend Finance, Doyle recognized how a lack of access to capital impacts
contractors’ ability to operate and grow their businesses. He was inspired to launch Billd, along
with co-founder Jesse Weissburg, to bring traditional Wall Street access to capital to the
construction jobsite, allowing contractors to bypass project hurdles with access to upfront funds while enabling suppliers to sell more materials and get paid up-front. For contractors who
usually aren’t paid until more than 90 days from purchasing materials, Billd provides 120-day terms so they can scale their business and stabilize cash flow.

Doyle’s technical certifications include Certified Energy Manager, Business Energy Professional, LEED AP O+M Certified, Solar PV Advanced 40 Hour (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners), Certified Building Envelope Analyst, Infrared Level 1 Thermography Certification, Green Advantage Certified for Commercial Buildings, and a Certified Auditor, Level 3 Installer, QAP – Air Barrier Association of America. He was a founding member of the Solar Access to Public Capital working group of the Solar Energy Industries Association, the Energy Services Coalition, the U.S. Green Building Council, and he is a board member of the Building Enclosure Council of the National Institute of Building Sciences. Doyle holds a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University and an MBA from Rice University. He resides in Austin, Texas, with his two children.
