The average millionaire has seven streams of income. In contrast, the average person has more sources of debt than revenue.  

If you’re on the bad side of this equation, then it’s time to flip reality on its head and move forward. Peter Voogd moved from being broke to breaking the mould, becoming an authority on millennial entrepreneurship after bagging a string of successes across many business sectors. Austin Netzley moved forward from a middle class upbringing in the cornfields of Ohio to become a textbook definition of “beating the odds”. Saddled with $80,000 in student debts, Austin entered the corporate world, paid his debts within three years, and “retired” at the age of 27. Both of them have been featured in leading publications to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.

 

In this podcast, Peter Voogd and Austin Netzley share how they achieved consistent success in their businesses and personal lives. These two elite entrepreneurs have several things in common but three stand out:

 
  1. There was a point in their lives when they badly wanted to achieve more but had no idea how to do it.
  2. They actively searched for answers everywhere until they reached a point of clarity about who they are and what they want to be, building a core vision in the process.
  3. They acted passionately on that vision.
 

Incidentally, they also agree that, “only by moving forward will you gain momentum and become unstoppable.” Neither of them had much to begin with, whether in financial capital or business knowledge. All they had was a strong motivation to become more than they were. But it was enough to get them to move forward.

 

You don’t need to know everything to be able to take the first step. You just need to move -- step by tiny step if necessary -- towards your vision, and you’ll learn about the things you need along the way.

 

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • The practical steps two elite entrepreneurs took to become millionaires in their twenties.
  • Why trying to impress people won’t take you very far.
  • How generating value while being yourself can help you achieve freedom and build a meaningful legacy.
  • Some core resources that can help you start a thriving business.
  • Why sustaining entrepreneurial success requires having multiple streams of income.
  • How to break down an ambitious goal into smaller but achievable tasks.
  • How to cut the learning curve to success in half.
  • The core principles behind the bestselling book, Six Months to Six Figures
 

Quotes:

“Don't fear people and drop the need to be liked”

“The ultimate power is knowing your strengths & weaknesses”

“Dreams are nothing without actions”

 

Questions:

How can you blast through these roadblocks (like others have done) and move forward to gain momentum?

Bad things happen. It’s only a question of when, how bad, and whether you’re resilient enough to ride through a bad time.

 

As you move through life, there’ll be moments of frustration, anger, and discouragement. You had a flat tire on the way to an important meeting. Mortgage rates just went up. A new and aggressive competitor nabbed some of your valued clients. You got fired from a dream job. Your partner wants to break up the relationship. Site traffic is low. Your cat got bitten by a nasty poodle.

 

So what do you do when times are tough? Do you give in to rage or disappointment? Or do you ignore them as if nothing happened?

 

How people react to adversity is a good test on whether they are geared up for success. Winners roll with the punches and bounce back with a determined and positive outlook. Losers wallow in their pain (real or imagined) and refuse to take the next step moving forward.

 

The best way to handle tough times is to face it with what I call “mental toughness.” Your mindset is your best armor when things don’t go your way. To help you build mental toughness, I’ve developed the Focus 5 Activity that I recommend you perform every three to four weeks. This activity helps fill up your core with things that uplift your attitude (gratefulness, pride) and things that motivate you to act on your goals (excitement, results).   

 

In this podcast, we’ll get into the details on how you should perform this 15-minute activity, which I guarantee will help you build a winning mindset that can handle even the toughest of times.   

 

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • A practical technique to improve your attitude and stay motivated.
  • How to build your confidence through simple mental exercises.  
  • How to use personal goals to drive business results.
  • Why being psychologically prepared helps you lift your career or grow your business.   
 

Quotes:

“Once you get into the place of gratitude then you're gonna really pinpoint  what you're proud of”

“Think of 5 things that you are proud of that you can feel excited when you look at”

“One of the deaths of all dreams and ambitions is complacency”

 

Questions:

What is your first reaction when something negative surprises you?

Everyone has 24 hours to spend in a day. But the one thing that differentiates successful and influential people from those who perennially struggle is the way they spend their hours. It starts the moment you ought to wake up. If you hit snooze all the time, you’ll end up working for somebody who doesn’t.

 

To be a game changer, to live the best life you can possibly have, and to get results, you have to rise and grind. You simply have to hustle. After all, time is your most valuable resource and how you view and use it determines whether you’ll achieve success, freedom and fulfilment.

 

Don’t end up like people who hold a sorry bag of regret through retirement age. People who lived their lives according to the expectations of others, wasting all their precious hours on things they disliked or those that distract them from reaching their goals. If you live day to day like most people who just let circumstances control their lives, you’ll be in a very bumpy ride without getting an inch closer to your dreams.

 

To succeed, live on your own terms by consciously spending time on the things that matter most to you. Build habits of excellence by doing more to become more.

 

Never let a day go by without producing value. You can reinforce a critical skill, maximise an experience, give something back to the community by volunteering, or learn an important life or business lesson. The secret sauce is to consider the time you spend as an investment for personal or professional growth.

 
 

In just about six minutes, I’ve distilled the steps you need to do all that. And I invite you to listen closely to the bite-sized podcast.

 
 

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • How to begin your day with purpose
  • Why saying you don’t have time is the excuse of whiners, mediocre performers, and people who chase the wrong priorities
  • How to spend each 24-hour day to get you closer to your goals
  • Why cutting the time spent on distractions such as TV, games, unnecessary naps, and social media will help you save time for more valuable activities
 

Quotes:

"Live life on your terms."

"It is not about time management, it is about self management."

"Grind over security and hustle over being comfortable."

 

Questions:

What's something very important to you that you want to spend more time on?

Nov 3, 2016

What single thing differentiates successful entrepreneurs from people who constantly struggle to make a mark?

 

Value. Entrepreneurs with a winning mindset give a ton of premium to value. They work full throttle to continuously make themselves and their products more valuable. These elite entrepreneurs persistently develop skills and habits that make their personal brand more valuable than others. They always go beyond what is expected to give their audience or customers that “added value” by crafting products or services that prominently stand out in a competitive market.

 

Value involves hard work, not loose talk. Anyone can say, “this is my goal and I will achieve it.” But not everyone has the grit and perseverance to actually do it. Hence, value resides in execution and implementation, never in baby talk. You can only generate value by going beyond expectations and taking the road less traveled. Reading a book will give you great ideas. But mere reading is easy. Real value happens when you act on the ideas you’ve learned. Similarly, going to seminars is expected of entrepreneurs. Anybody can do it. But winners go the extra mile by doing things other people can’t or won’t do. When you attend seminars, go out of your way to meet people, help ease their pain points, and build meaningful networks. That’s one way to generate real value.  

 

So let’s have a quick talk about what real value is. We all know that if you are good enough, you will always find the means to make money or be successful. The problem with most entrepreneurs these days is that they focus on the wrong things. They want to take credit for things that are basically expected of them. Real value goes beyond that. Real value involves tough challenges that dissuade most people from ever doing anything.

 

Let's define what will bring value to your life right now. How would you know it? Listen as I get to the bottom of how to add value to your personal brand and become unstoppable.

 

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • How to develop a value-focused mindset
  • What the baby effect is and why you should avoid it
  • How to determine the un-required things that you must do to get to the next level
  • How to find the hidden value in your daily actions
 

Quotes:

“If anyone can do something it's not very valuable.”

Let your execution and results do all the talking.”

“Focus on one or two things that you think are the most valuable in your life right now”

 

Question:

What's the one that's holding you back from becoming really valuable and unstoppable?
