EP 120: Tracy Brinkmann - Lessons From The Low Points And Advice For Entrepreneurs

November 23, 2020

Starting a business seems easy, right? Seems like someone you know starts a new Instagram business, influencer campaign or agency every other Tuesday. But without drive, a willingness to learn, and a dash of struggle, the vast majority of these “businesses” will cease to exist. So, want to know how to build yours up in a way that will last?

Tracy Brinkmann’s story begins in tragedy and sees him fight his way up to the pinnacle of corporate marketing, continuing on to the present day with the birth of Driven Dark Horse Entrepreneurs, Tracy’s podcast, on which he generously shares highlights from his wisdom as a top-tier business coach, centering on the truth that participation awards won’t feed your family and life just isn’t fair. Tracy’s show and his work are dedicated to entrepreneurs who are “starting, kick-starting and stepping up your entrepreneurial game all while not ignoring that amazing tool between your ears!”

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, Brian and Tracy dive deep on regularly identifying priorities and mining the feedback from failure to meet those priorities, the rewards that come back to your business when you begin to be discerning about the clients you take on, and some life-changing tips for those who are thinking about starting a podcast and those who have just barely gotten theirs off the ground. Listen in for an interview jam-packed with actionable insight that will change the way you do business for the better.

What You’ll Learn:

  • What Tracy considers to be the number-one most important skill set any entrepreneur can have on their side
  • How persistence and consistency - especially as a starting entrepreneur - will allow you to sit back and let clients and customers come to you
  • Why Tracy recommends starting an interview-style podcast to everyone who wants to (and how to leverage your podcast into growth, both personal and professional)
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote:

“One of the things I like to do right in the beginning of the week is figure out one or two, and usually a maximum of three things I want to get accomplished during the course of that week. And that way when I reflect back on Friday… I go back and say, ‘Okay, how did I do this week?’ And if I got those one, two or three things done, I'm like, ‘I'm the man.’ Right? You know? And if not, then it's, you reflect a little deeper and you think, ‘Okay, where did I stumble, bumble, fall, trip, faceplant, whatever happened?’ Because, really, it's not failure at that point. And it's more feedback, right? You tried something, or you didn't try something. Well, if you tried it, and it didn't work, well, why didn't it work?”

EP 119: The Secret To Powerful, Lucrative Livestreams

EP 119: The Secret To Powerful, Lucrative Livestreams

November 16, 2020

How do you connect to an entire audience of people when the whole world is isolated? Live streaming has stepped in to answer that question in a big way this year. But let's face it ... live streaming a show on a consistent basis can be a real pain - unless you learn the ropes from the best in the business

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, Brian and his panel discuss the incredible range of software options and technologies in live streaming that are now available during the pandemic, how high-caliber guests change the game for your streams (plus how to successfully set up each interview), and the role that your live streams can play in expanding your network and growing your business like crazy. Listen in for a one-of-a-kind group interview that will help you turn the COVID quarantine into an amazing opportunity.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How innovations in live streaming are helping communities reconnect with their neighbors, houses of worship, and the world at large
  • Why scheduling your broadcasts is absolutely essential for drawing substantial viewership 
  • What quality means to the value of your live streams (and why it doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with expensive equipment)
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote:

“What you're ending up with in Zoom, you can actually create that experience of listening, that communication and that link between seeing other people on the stage. I think that works much better than a single talking head, when you have that conversation where you can see the two people talking, interacting… we're bringing that because people want to see that interactivity. You know, we may be socially distanced, or all those horrible words. But we're still very social, and we want to see other people.”

EP 116: John Brancy - Unearth the Power of Your Voice

EP 116: John Brancy - Unearth the Power of Your Voice

October 26, 2020

When was the last time you sang in the shower? Most of us do, but few of us recognize, or know how to tap into, the potential for communication, beauty and impact that already exists in our voices.

A Grammy-winning baritone, John Brancy's intuition, musicality and powers of communication have earned him his place among the top baritones of his generation, and he has been hailed by the New York Times as a vibrant, resonant presence. The New Jersey-born artist has also performed on prestigious stages all over the globe, including shows in Moscow, London, Paris, Berlin, Toronto, Los Angeles, and Vienna, to name just a few. His work has appeared in The Washington Post, The New Yorker, The New York Times and other major publications. Brancy is an entrepreneur as well as an artist, having founded multiple companies and projects of his own. He is currently on a mission to improve the lives of other entrepreneurs through the innate power of their voice.

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, John and Brain tackle topics like pushing forward in spite of COVID-19's efforts to slow us down, unearthing and developing the "sing sense" we all possess, how an individual's personality shines through when they sing, and the absolute necessity of flexibility in mind, body and spirit. Tune in for an inspiring interview with a legendary artist.

What You'll Learn:

  • What entrepreneurship has to do with the lifestyle of an artist, and how John juggles the various pieces of his career
  • How John utilizes "dual awareness" when he performs (and how you can tap into it within yourself!)
  • Why remaining in motion is key to making the thing that speaks to you resonate to the rest of the world as well
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote:

"The fear of failing is the thing that kind of grows and grows, because fear begets more fear. Fear wants to grow. So if you fear failing, then you're going to forever be locked in that cycle. And so if you can somehow coax your spirit out of fear and into a higher vibration, essentially, and realize that every moment and everything you do is a lesson in life, and that if this is the thing that your inner voice is telling you that you need to jump into and you need to experience, then the only thing that's really standing in your way is fear. And failure is just going to - if you fail at it, that's a perspective. That's just a perspective."

EP 115: Bernadette Boas - Looking Inward to Serve Outward

EP 115: Bernadette Boas - Looking Inward to Serve Outward

October 19, 2020

A riddle for you: how does a person become better, kinder, and more successful by getting more and more selfish? In fact, there's an entire movement building behind this idea, headed up by a woman who knows what it's like firsthand...

Known as "The Ball of Fire," Bernadette Boas is an energetic, whip-smart transformation coach, consultant, speaker, author and business owner who uses her decades of corporate insight, combined with her entrepreneurial focus, to help professionals cultivate the mindset, talents and tools that will allow them to create riches in all areas of their career and their personal life. Bernadette is also the author of Shedding the Corporate Bitch, Shifting Your Bitches to Riches in Life and Business.

On this episode of The Mind Body Business Show, Brian and Bernadette get together to jam on the mental and physical need to create grounding moments in your daily routine, reforming your approach to selling (and business in general) to focus on simply telling stories, forming genuine, prosperous connections, and the five steps Bernadette teaches to take the urge to act nasty from a place of pain, confront yourself, and come out the other side empowered, engaged and more successful than ever. Tune in to trade out the qualities that hold you back for confidence, peace and fulfillment.

What You'll Learn:  

  • Why all the unique skill sets in the world won't help you move in the right direction if you're missing a few vital internal pieces
  • What Bernadette had to teach herself - as a woman and an entrepreneur - about the intersection of selfishness and service
  • How our own internal negative emotions manifest themselves in aggression, chaos and hostility towards the people around us (and how to stop acting that way)   
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote

“We need to get selfish. It's not a bad term, it's not a bad thing to be selfish to ensure that you are caring for yourself. So it's nice that you want to help everyone else - at the same time, you really need to take care of yourself and be selfish, you know, in certain ways.”

EP 114: Travis Taylor - Healing Mind, Body and Spirit in a Chaotic World

EP 114: Travis Taylor - Healing Mind, Body and Spirit in a Chaotic World

October 12, 2020

2020 has brought lots of change into our lives - where do you feel these changes the most? Although we might not recognize it, the energy around and inside us can begin to wear our minds and bodies down in subtle ways. 

Having spent his early career as an attorney and dedicated public servant for the city of Seattle, Travis Taylor realized, during a Reiki class, that he possessed clairvoyant abilities and that he could see, hear and communicate with the near-imperceptible energy systems that surround the human body. Over years of honing his talents, Travis has helped people across the world identify and release the root causes of health problems, cultivate balance and wellness, and live with more purpose, alignment and happiness.

On this episode of The Mind Body Business Show, Travis and Brian dig deep on reframing the way we think about the root of oppression in our culture and what we can do to fix it, the impact our energy, experiences, relationships and beliefs have on our physical and spiritual beings, and how to allocate your time, efforts and focus as an entrepreneur to thrive during the pandemic and long after. Tune in for an episode that can only be described as transcendent.

What You'll Learn:  

  • How Travis came to the realization that he is clairvoyant and honed his talents to better serve the world around him
  • Why physical fitness and wellness play a huge role in Travis' life, both inside and outside of his business (plus how he makes space for fitness in the age of COVID)
  • What skills you need to master to stay healthy, sane and productive as we all ride out the pandemic and related challenges we are currently facing   
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote

“When you asked about what motivates me, this is something that motivates me - when I'm able to connect with somebody and allow them to see themselves with unconditional love, which is something that not a lot of people actually have experienced in their life, to be seen and valued and encouraged. That's just such a loving thing to be able to do. So beyond what we would consider to be a gift that I might have, what I believe to be true is that I can't tell anybody anything they aren't ready to hear, because I won't see it. Right? I won't see it if they're not ready for it.”

EP 113: Andrea Waltz - The Powerful Mindset of Go for No!

EP 113: Andrea Waltz - The Powerful Mindset of Go for No!

October 5, 2020

Being told “no” is a nightmare for any entrepreneur. But it doesn’t need to be. How would your business change if you looked at every “no” as an opportunity?

Andrea Waltz is a speaker, virtual trainer, the co-author of Go for No! and co-founder of Courage Crafters, Inc. alongside her husband Richard. Together, they guide audiences and clients in all the ways to turn the word “no” into an asset, not an obstacle.

On this episode of The Mind Body Business Show, Andrea and Brian break down the relationship between success and failure, the organization side of entrepreneurship, a behind-the-scenes look at co-authorship, and the art of influencing the influencer. Listen in for a few valuable secrets from a multi-industry legend!

What You'll Learn:  

  • What Andrea has found that her mistakes have in common (and why it’s important for you to recognize now)
  • How the books Andrea and her husband have written came to be the cornerstone of their business
  • Why direct mail marketing is still a very reliable way to get your message out to the people who need to see it   
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote

“There is so much opportunity out there. And from a “Go for No” perspective, it's all about being willing to fail. And that means telling your story to as many people as you can, as fast as you can. It means taking those chances, taking the risks, not being - well, you can be afraid to fall down and mess up and fall on your face. You can be afraid, you can have that fear. That fear is okay. You have to just do it in spite of that fear.”

EP 112: Lloyd Lofton - Secrets of Sales and Self-Improvement from Someone Who Knows How to Fail

EP 112: Lloyd Lofton - Secrets of Sales and Self-Improvement from Someone Who Knows How to Fail

September 28, 2020

Entrepreneurs theorize and read and scheme a lot. What they don’t do nearly as often, is take some action. And the fact is, all the personal development books and expensive trainings in the world won’t take you anywhere if you refuse to take a step.

Lloyd Lofton is the founder of Power Behind the Sales, an online virtual learning platform for sales and marketing. He is the past president of the Senior Insurance Marketing Association and he is a frequent contributor to numerous industry magazines as well as the author of the massively popular book The Saleshero’s Guide to Handling Objections. Lloyd is also a powerful coach, speaker and sales legend.

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, Brian and Lloyd lay down some truth on the need to make choices and gain momentum as an entrepreneur, the sales philosophies and training techniques that have made Lloyd a superstar, the trial-and-error of self-improvement, and how to shift your mindset around the concept of failure to push forward and rise above your limits. Tune in for an energetic session aimed around teaching you what it takes to make impactful changes in yourself and others, 1% at a time.

What You'll Learn:  

  • What we do to ourselves when we prioritize thinking about the consequences of a failed decision, rather than the rewards to be gained if we win
  • Why Lloyd foregoes handing out what-to-do wisdom to his people in favor of teaching them what not to do above all
  • How the consumer market is shifting in the wake of COVID-19, and how it’s going to separate the smart businesspeople from the other ones   
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote

“If you improve something, anything - just make a decision on one thing and do that one thing every day. If you improve 1%, you realize, in a year, you've improved 365% Why would you settle for 10x? I don't understand that. To me, it's just doing something. And who cares if it's wrong. I mean, the worst thing that happens if it's wrong is you get the knowledge to know that what you just did doesn't work. So just do something.
