Favorite Quote

“At the core of everything, you must believe beyond a shadow of a doubt what you are capable of, and in what you are doing. And if for some reason there's a lack of belief there, you need to look very deeply as to why that exists and figure out, can you believe in yourself and what you're doing? And if your answer is no to that, then you need to find something else that you should be doing. Because belief is at the core of everything. You can't sell something you don't believe in. You can't build something you don't believe in. You can't have success when you can't see that success. You must believe.

Favorite Quote

“And one of the things I've learned along the way is that you have to commit - but I've got to say where I have been the happiest is not committing to success, but committing to making a mistake. I am going to take these next five steps and it may be a mistake. The worst mistake that could happen is this. Can I live with that if that happens and keep going forward? And really, that's the definition of entrepreneurship.

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, Brian and Dominique dig into unearthing the stories we all have within us, what it takes to make your podcast blow up, from the guests to diversifying your media to the importance of mentorship, and how to elevate your game in a new channel in the midst of COVID-19.

Favorite Quote

“From the cradle to the grave, we're always learning and growing by choice, and sometimes not by choice, and being able to get more self-aware of how we operate, how we act when we perform at our best. And being able to take advantage of what we've learned and gained and apply that to our lives to create the best lives for ourselves possible is self-mastery.

EP 108: Les Brown - Staying Grateful, Staying Hungry

August 31, 2020

We've hit a slow period as a society, no doubt. Now you have to decide whether or not that will define how you rise to the occasion of every single day and keep your hunger alive. 

As one of the world’s most renowned motivational speakers, Les Brown is a dynamic personality and highly-sought-after resource in business and professional circles for Fortune 500 CEOs, small business owners, non-profit and community leaders from all sectors of society looking to expand opportunity.

Through his work, Les energizes people to meet the challenges of the world around them. 

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, Les and Brian dig deep into tackling life's challenges with a sense of hunger and gratitude at your core, how Les became the life-changing speaker and storyteller he is today, and harnessing a competitive spirit to get ahead and make an impact that will outlive you.

Favorite Quote

“Because I talk about the fact that if you are serious about your goals and your dreams, you've got to be hungry. You cannot make it happen by being casual. You've got to go all out. People that are hungry are willing to do the things today that others won't do in order to have the things tomorrow others won't have. People that are hungry always strive to get on top in life, because it's the bottom that's overcrowded.

EP 107: Dr. Benjamin Hardy - Crafting Your Ideal Future Self

EP 107: Dr. Benjamin Hardy - Crafting Your Ideal Future Self

August 24, 2020

With everything you have to focus on right now, this moment, how much time do you spend focusing on the future you? Stop sacrificing your potential and start constructing the best version of yourself for the days to come.

Dr. Benjamin Hardy is an organizational psychologist, successful entrepreneur and the bestselling author of Willpower Doesn't Work. His blog is read by millions of people monthly and he has been featured on Forbes, CNBC, Big Think and many others. He is a regular contributor to Inc. and Psychology Today and currently one of the most popular writers on Medium. Alongside his authorship, Dr. Hardy speaks and trains at a wide range of events.  

On this episode of the Mind Body Business Show, Brian and Dr. Hardy discuss crafting a routine in the short- and long-term to push you towards the person you want your future self to be, figuring out exactly what that future self looks like and investing in it, and understanding the factors that influence who we are and how we transform ourselves for the better down the road. Listen in for the head start you need to make your future everything you've imagined.

What You'll Learn:  

  • How Dr. Hardy mentally and physically sets himself up for success every day (and why you should be copying his routine)
  • Why selling the product you're passionate about is a service to the people who buy from you
  • What our behavior can tell us about how we prioritize our past, our present and our future   
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote

“For 100 years, the field of psychology assumed that your behavior was completely driven by the past. Well, a lot of research these days in positive psychology says that your behavior is actually driven by your view of the future. The challenge is that most people don't spend much time imagining their future selves, they're not actively creating a future self, and they're not being aggressive. It can't just be inside your head. Your identity is the story you tell about yourself. So if you're serious about creating a specific and valued version of your future, you have to start telling people about it.

“But that's really where it started. And the fact that I understood what my clients are going through, and I understand the pain and the challenges and how debilitating it is when you feel like there's nothing there, and you don't know where to turn, that's why I do what I do… What gets me excited is seeing people who come to me feeling horrible and helping them start to see the light and start to see success. There's nothing more powerful and exciting than that.

EP 103: Carol S. Niemi - Creating a Brand That Stands for Something

EP 103: Carol S. Niemi - Creating a Brand That Stands for Something

July 27, 2020

It’s hard sometimes to get ahead with the noise of competing advertising drowning you out. But what most companies don’t know yet is that all you have to do to truly stand away from the pack is to embrace your own story and tell it well. 

Having worked with more than 50 brands to develop - among other things - a clear brand story and a nurturing company culture, Carol Niemi, PhD, has learned several immutable laws of marketing: If your brand doesn't stand out, someone else's will. The way to stand OUT is to stand FOR something. Stand for something your customers and employees understand and respect. Be authentic. The enduring brands all know this: When everyone inside and outside your company knows what you stand for, you'll have loyal customers and employees. 

On this episode of The Mind Body Business Show, Brian and Carol sit down to discuss keeping gratitude at your center, how Carol helps companies tell their story and serve at the highest level, and seizing the unique opportunities available to entrepreneurs. Listen in for an uplifting, high-energy episode to get your day moving forward.

What You'll Learn:  

  • How a mindset grounded in having control over your circumstances has the potential to change the world
  • Why fitness is integral to your success - both professionally and personally - no matter what industry you’re in
  • What values combine to make up the formula for the ideal, most successful entrepreneur  
  • And much more!

Favorite Quote

“They weren't just words. They weren't just marketing. That became their corporate culture. And that's what I try to help my clients do, so that if everybody knows what you stand for, they know how to answer the phone, they know how to talk to a customer. When you talk to editors who want to interview you for an article, you've got a framework in which to tell your story. And so that's what I do.
