Have you ever compared yourself to those who’ve achieved success?

In this day and age, it’s easy to look at celebrities, experts, and influencers as a whole different breed compared to ourselves. I want to shift your perspective and remind you not to separate yourself from other people’s accomplishments - they’ve just put more time in than you. Remember, everybody is different. For us entrepreneurs, our business becomes a reflection of ourselves and what you dedicate your life to.

This is the greatest time in human history to capitalize on entrepreneurship, success and building a life on your terms. Things are changing. What worked 5 or 10 years ago doesn’t work anymore. I know 15 year olds making half a million + and I know broke 40 year olds. If you’re not growing and investing in yourself everyday, you’re just existing.

I want to make sure you don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity for fulfilment, peace of mind, wealth and success for yourself and the people around you.

When i think about my story, I’ve already failed my way to success. My story is not perfect, but my purpose is to be as authentic and real as possible.

These are my 3 biggest breakthroughs I’ve ever had.

My personal mission is to help bridge the gap for you and help you get to that next level of achievement and success.

Are you ready? Let's do this!

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • My 3 biggest breakthroughs that I have ever had
  • What's on my one page plan that helped me change my game
  • The one thing that I am proud of, on top of all the breakthroughs I’ve had



“Don't differentiate yourself from everybody else.”

“Your business is a reflection of you.”

“Perfectionism is the enemy of real entrepreneurship.”

I am not perfect. I go through challenges as entrepreneurs do but most people don't want to talk about the challenges. So for me, I do have a lot of anxiety where I’m always trying to do something.

Think. Things. Through. Then. Follow. Through.

The 6 most important words you'll ever hear in business and entrepreneurship. These words have changed my life, my peace of mind, increased my results, increased my respect level from my peers and increased every area of my life in business.

Do you ever catch yourself tempted by instant pleasure? In today’s society, many people aren’t even thinking about the long term effects of the decisions they make today.

Over the last year, I’ve been more obsessed than ever about the power of regret. There's nothing worst than looking in someone's eyes and see regret. Regret is massive and the sad truth is that most people don't talk it.

According to Sports Illustrator, 78% of NFL players are going broke/bankrupt or under financial stress within 2 years of retirement, are you kidding me? While 60% of NBA players go bankrupt within 5 years after leaving the sport.

Don’t let bad decisions haunt you forever. Ask yourself, “What if i didn’t make the wrong decisions?”, “What if I had a better circle of influence?”, “What is I listened to my mentors?”.

Here’s the scary thing, regret does not happen overnight. It’s a series of bad decisions. Listen in to this episode and learn the 7 keys to kill your regret!


In this episode, you will learn . . .

Do you know the importance of your circle of influence? Are you taking massive action to level up every single day? In today’s episode, I deep dive into answering the some of the most common questions on what takes to build a million dollar network and beyond. We hear all the time, “how do I elevate my circle of influence?”, “how do I find the right mentor?”, or “I am from a small town and I don't feel my ambition or hunger matches my bank account and my business success”. Why? Because you don't have a congruent circle of influence that’s taking your life and business to the next level. Trust me, I have been there.

It’s extremely important to be strategic with who you follow and ensure you have the right mentors paving the way for you. Surround yourself with people that are challenging you, make you think bigger, hold you to high standards, really hold you accountable vs let you off the hook!

I challenge you to elevate your circle of influence now because there is nothing that’s going to make a bigger difference in your life and your success and your fulfillment than who you associate yourself with. Listen in and take note because executing on the tips from this episode can be the biggest turning point of your life!

Ahh. Money. Everyone wants some but most lack the mindset to earn more. In fact, there are retirement-age people still living from paycheck to paycheck. There are countless millennials running on empty after overspending on stuff they think will make them look good. And there are people who claim they don’t care about money -- nearly all of them as good as broke.    

So let me show you the right perspective when it comes to money. The years I’ve spent as an entrepreneur and the experiences of highly successful people in my network all point to the same conclusion: Your self-worth has nothing to do with your finances. But money allows you to build dreams, learn new skills, lift people up, make smart investments, and spend on experiences that matter.

Money is important because it enables you to make a positive impact and build a meaningful legacy. That means you shouldn’t waste time on a career or business that doesn’t generate the income you want. Instead, consider two or three things that do make money for you and double down on those things. Over-deliver to the people who pay you so that your value increases over time.   

We all have 24 hours in a day but highly successful people seem to spend theirs more wisely than the rest of humanity. Do you want to learn their secrets?

Join Markado and me as we discuss the tricky issues surrounding money and how you can create a positive strategy for monetizing the skills you are good at.

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • Why a lot of people don’t make a lot of money.
  • How to create a strategy that will help you achieve financial freedom.
  • Why hanging out with the wrong people will keep you miserable and how elevating your peer group will help generate wealth and well-being.
  • The four things successful people spend money on that the rest of society don’t.




“Don’t let money define you”

“Your self worth has nothing to do with your finances”

“Being wealthy is a state of mind, and so is being broke”


What's been your biggest perspective shift on money?

When you blend music and message together, motivation happens. That’s what I’ve learned producing inspirational mixtapes for ambitious millennials. Even better than that, motivation spurs people to take action that positively changes their lives and those of others.

Music does a lot of things. It can make people feel good or serve as a shelter from life’s sharp edges. But music, reinforced by the right stories, can make you turn inward and discover yourself as a person and as a dreamer. This is important because mastering yourself is key to becoming a world-class human being; which in turn, is a prerequisite to becoming a world-class entrepreneur. After all, you earn genuine respect only if you execute well on all fronts: health, wealth, integrity, financial freedom and leadership.

That’s a full plate but music and the right narratives can spark sustained action. And that’s the rationale behind the release of the Know Yourself Mixtape which we offer free to YEL subscribers. You can listen and groove to the mixtape while working out at the gym or taking the commute to work. Because the mixtape also includes entrepreneurial insights, you get to be educated as well as entertained.

Join Markado and me as we give a sneak peek into some of the tracks that comprise the Know Yourself Mixtape and discover how it can stoke your inner fire. Crafted by some of the best sound engineers, there’s nothing like this as of yet in the market for millennials. So tune in and grab a beat.

In this episode, you will learn . . .

  • Some compelling trivia on the upcoming Know Yourself Mixtape (15:48)
  • The importance of self-awareness to your entrepreneurial success. (16:56)
  • Why being a world-class human being is more important than financial achievements. (30:01)
  • How upbeat music mixed with a message can spark motivation. (15:56)  



"There’s nothing more important than knowing yourself" (16:54)  

"Too many people don’t know themselves because they are taking too many opinions.”      (17:03)

“Good luck finding [entrepreneurial] hunger in kids who have everything given to them.” (27:00)

Be a leader in whatever industry, profession, or business you engage in and you’ll improve just about every aspect of your life, including your personal happiness and your ability to uplift others.

But what does it really mean to be a leader?

And what does it take to be an excellent one?

Leadership means more than getting things done. That is why not all managers are leaders. Leadership is not about titles, positions, or hierarchies. Nor is it about seniority or the ability to tell people what to do all the time. These misconceptions cause many old-school CEOs to fail at connecting with ambitious millennials, especially at a time when business landscapes are radically shifting.

Like everything else, there are a lot of myths and falsehoods surrounding leadership and it is critical to reject the shackling mindset behind these myths. More importantly, it is critical to your success to discover and embrace the core principles of leadership.

In this podcast, I’ll walk you through common misconceptions about leadership and give you some tactical approaches you can take to become a good leader. No, there’s no magic spell that instantly turns you into a world class leader. It takes a daily commitment to take the path to leadership. It is a journey that will impact how you spend your time, set goals, plan your day, judge value, and train your skills.

Be warned, this is not a journey for the weak. But if you persist, the results will be life-changing.
