I Just Dropped Out of Corporate America - Arndreya Price (Sun, 06 Mar 2022)
Does leaving your W-2 mean taking a reckless jump in the hopes of landing softly? For Arndreya Price, not necessarily. Taking the red pill and exiting the matrix can be done with class and sheer confidence in oneself. She shares the value of hyping yourself up and prioritizing yourself. The drive towards stylish, versatile, quality paraphernalia began when I crossed the burning sandz in 2006. I’d waited for this moment most of my life and I was beyond elated! But my line had to wear BIG oversized sized men’s t-shirts that had no shape. As a collegiate neophyte I proudly repped that paraphernalia. However, that line t-shirt didn’t allow me to showcase my personality and style. My experience is not unique to me; others have had similar difficulty having to settle for subpar paraphernalia. I believe all Divine 9 women, and that means you, should have Greek apparel that reflects her unique style and personality and helps her feel beautiful and confident. And thus, my inspiration for LNO Greek. Whether your style is sophisticated, sporty, chic, casual, high end, laid back, alluring, or bold, it’s my pleasure to offer LNO Greek paraphernalia to enhance your style while you are elevating the black community or reppin’ on the yard! - Arndreya Price   In this episode, Arndreya shares her red pill moment and becoming an official corporate America dropout.

No One Should Pass On Debt Instead of Wealth - Kofi Thompson (Sun, 27 Feb 2022)
Living a life feeling like we do not have a choice hinders us from making better decisions. For Kofi Thompson, upon realizing the responsibility he has for his life, abandoned the scarcity mindset brought from the toxic environment he lived in.  Kofi Thompson has made it his mission to normalize the conversation around mental health and create avenues for people to express their challenges, get the support they need without the stigma and focus that energy into “life creating” habits. This passion came from mistakes he made trying to numb the trauma from his upbringing in a home with two parents who were diagnosed with chemical imbalances that presented as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.  As an empath, he has little tolerance for suffering and wants to help eliminate this source of pain for families across the nation.  Kofi is a true example of what it looks like to overcome your environment, channel your pain and use it to live out your dreams.  Today, he is a competitive powerlifter who holds the record for deadlifts in the state of Virginia, a financial advisor, and hosts a podcast called Thriving through Trauma where he helps those who are impacted by mental illnesses find their voices and learn about healthy ways to heal.   Kofi talks about his childhood, choosing his way out, and developing the evolved mindset regarding wealth and living life intentionally.

Money was Supposed to Solve This and It Didn't - Michael Unbroken (Sun, 06 Feb 2022)
How often do we blame others for the chaos in our lives? Whether we like it or not, we are not inculpable children stuck in uncontrollable circumstances. It may be painful, but as adults, we should blame ourselves. From this realization comes empowerment as we take on the responsibility to lead ourselves to a better life, as Michael Unbroken will discuss here. My journey is not dissimilar to that of millions of people around the world. I grew up in chaos. My mother was a drug addict and alcoholic. My father abandoned me when I was barely 2 years old. My step-father was hyper abusive, and the kind of guy that you pray never enters your life. We grew up in The Mormon Church where I was molested by one of the Ward’s mothers in the night. Since we were often homeless and the church partitioners took us in I wasn’t allowed to say a word. By the time I was 11 I had been entirely stripped of my childhood. Between the beatings, belittlement, molestation, and homelessness I was ready to kill myself. By 12 I was using drugs daily. One of my brothers and I were adopted by our racist grandmother. Today I educate people around the world on the effects of trauma and how to get out of THE VORTEX, take their lives back, and become the person that they know they are. The most important piece of that puzzle is taking the first step. In this episode, Michael shares his extraordinary story of living life in survival mode and coming out empowered. He stresses the importance of realizing your responsibility and gives hard truths towards better awareness of the situations we face. Join us and listen in!   [00:01 - 07:33] Opening Segment  Welcoming Michael to the show Clinging on to hope instead of pain Michael on bringing the context to this journey [07:34 - 22:41] The Repercussions of Living Life in Survival Mode Being hungry and living an unstable life Making the choice to get out of the life of struggle Doing what it takes to have love and compassion [22:42 - 58:28] Money Doesn’t Really Solve the Problem How chaos in life is your fault What keeps you up at night needs action How it is not about the money but about fulfillment Putting in the effort and coming from a place of kindness [58:29 - 59:41] Closing Segment Everything can be different when you make a decision Connect with Michael! Closing words Tweetable Quote: “In the chaos of my life, I was always blaming other people. It's your fault, you might as well come to recognize that it is your fault… You are not a child anymore.

Fight is a Power Play - Brian Bogert (Sun, 30 Jan 2022)
In life, there are various situations where we can fall victim to the circumstances and have self-defeating or self-protective behaviors. Oftentimes, we seek for answers out there but the more we realize our own past, patterns, and current situations, what we are looking for is already within ourselves - and like what Brian Bogert emphasized - we just have to be mindful of it. It is scary but twice over liberating to realize how much control we have in our lives, so unless we become aware and take ownership, we would never come in for such potential. Brian Bogert teaches leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals how to become more aware and more intentional, thus allowing them to become who they already are, their most authentic selves. Brian provides a roadmap to ease the journey to self-realization. He ensures professionals understand the difference in using their time not in minutes, but with INTENTION.

The Edge of Growth and Expansion is Discomfort - Dan Mangena (Sun, 26 Dec 2021)
Our intention is there and we do take action to make our lives better. So how come we still do not get what we expect? What’s missing in the equation? Perhaps that is what we need to ponder on.

Fear is the Compass - James Burnham (Sun, 12 Dec 2021)
Acting out of instinct has been ingrained in us and so now that we live in a world where we are no longer plagued with this, it might seem foolish to admit our fear especially in this shame-based society. In this episode, James Burnham talks about embracing it. As a professional speaker specializing in adaptability, innovation, and team development, my passion is found in motivating individuals and driving positive change for organizations. The first step to finding solutions within professional and organizational settings is a rigorous assessment of you or your company's current situation. This opens the door for improvement and allows you to be precise in the planning process. By using data to drive informed decisions and measure change, I act as an agent for change when it is required. Through my range of experience, I’m able to provide leaders with functional tools that will increase their engagement, satisfaction, and unleash their personal talents as well as the talents of those who reside within their team. When leaders and team members learn to magnify these strengths, they become powerful contributors. I work with individuals and teams to help them foster an environment where each person can feel like they are contributing to their work and life with the best they have to offer. My methods have consistently brought those I work with greater success and enjoyment in their lives. These methods are easily applied to any who are willing to put in the work. In this episode, James Burnham discusses how fear can become our master teacher - helping us navigate our lives and focus. So, how do we transition from utilizing our amygdala to the prefrontal cortex?

Embracing Pain to Avoid Suffering - Brian Bogert (Sun, 28 Nov 2021)
It is nothing but natural to respond to suffering and shame with suppression, given how we are wired to think starting from our early years. But as a matter of fact, this very notion deprives us from embracing our authentic selves. Brian Bogert has a unique story to share about this and how he discovered the beauty in life by embracing the ugly.  Every single high-achieving individual has been stuck, frustrated, unsure, and angry as they start feeling their efforts barely move the needle forward on progress. They know they have much greater potential, yet they fall short of the end zone repeatedly. Brian Bogert teaches leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals how to become more aware and more intentional, thus allowing them to become who they already are, their most authentic selves. Brian provides a roadmap to ease the journey to self-realization. He ensures professionals understand the difference in using their time not in minutes, but with INTENTION. He opens the door to perspective, motivation and direction by sharing with leaders how to reprogram their brains, defy their own negative thinking, and how to stop making excuses. When we become who we are, we unlock what is within and leave “good enough” behind us.   In this episode, Brian spits out hard facts on how our defense mechanisms are destructive and detrimental to our growth. He talks about the virtue of selfishness and recognizing ourselves as perfect, irreplaceable individuals.

Closing words Tweetable Quotes: “We all must choose our pain, or our suffering will choose us. So as I look at it, I want to influence and control my destiny, which means I get to have active choice, and what that looks like.” - Brian Bogert “We literally protect ourselves in so many different ways because of our fear of what the fucking world is going to do to us, or how people are going to react. But again, we're fabricating a reality that doesn't exist. And true strength actually hides behind vulnerability.” - Brian Bogert  Connect with Brian: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bogertbrian/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/brianbogert/   LEAVE A REVIEW + help someone who wants to explode their business growth by sharing this episode or click here to listen to our previous episodes.   Dreamcatchers is an inclusive organization that targets people’s interest in being more instead of a certain demographic.

Winning Is A Learned Skill - DR. Jeff Spencer (Sun, 31 Oct 2021)
Winning in life seems to be a mystifying process - does it only favor the hard workers or the fortunate? Or perhaps it is not an arbitrary occurrence, rather a predictable one? DR. Jeff Spencer is here to talk about why this is more of a systematic approach than a mere reliance on fate. 🏅I became an Olympian at the age of 11.🏅 When I was 11, I wrote a contract with myself to make the 1972 Olympic games. And, I accomplished that goal. I have proved over and over in my own life that winning big is not an accident. It’s the purposeful outcome of deliberate actions consistently applied. I’ve been an Olympic athlete. I was awarded International Sports Chiropractor of the Year. I’ve shown my glass art in the world’s finest galleries. I earned my Masters degree in Sports Medicine from USC. I’ve authored three books. And, my most important achievement being the adoption of my daughter. - DR. Jeff Spencer   In this episode, DR.

The Magic Is In The Moment - Kelly Cardenas (Sun, 03 Oct 2021)
How often do you find yourself worrying about the future and getting conflicted with the past? Having plans and fulfilling tasks day by day are noble actions folks do, but perhaps we have to take a step back to see where we’re at, realign our focus, and live in the moment. That’s what Kelly Cardenas brought in with us today.  When I started off in my industry I had no idea how to technically do my job, identify my ultimate guest, attract them, and create an evangelist that would exponentially expand my reach. I think it goes without saying I had no understanding how to start a business, build a team, construct a successful culture, implement sustainable systems, and build a national multi-million dollar brand and I loved every moment of it! I woke up early and stayed up late and invited challenges into my life that would cause me to create solutions on the fly! My ignorance seemed to be an endless source of energy and enthusiasm! - Kelly Cardenas In this episode, Kelly shares his vivacious journey in not only becoming successful, but also contributing to other people’s successes, the enlightening realization towards your purpose, and the beauty of allowing magic to happen in the moment.

Jerome Myers on Self acceptance and Authenticity. (Fri, 01 Oct 2021)
We are taught as young children to always ask for permission to do anything, everything. Yet now as adults we strive to step outside the box and stop asking for permission. What level of self acceptance do you need to follow what's in your heart? Are you stuck in life because you need permission? At what point do you “take the red pill” and adventure out into the unknown? Jerome Myers is extraordinary. Throughout his life he has overcome obstacles that would leave most of us in a state of despair. Yet to this day he continues to outgrow the perviable box and venture into the dessert, past the jungle, and into the unknown... Without permission. In this incredible episode, Jerome talks on all points of self acceptance. Asking for help, being awkward, no longer needing permission, and finding growth that takes you outside the comfort of the “box.” Are you deciding each day how you want your life to be? How you want to live? Why do we need permission? How can we break away and find true freedom? Are you authentic enough to get the help you need to level up? How can you take life to the next level? It's You vs YOU. Are you empowering your mind to be the best version of you? To overcome the obstacles that you are challenged with? Live the best life you can with the time you are given, for life is the gift.

Do You Really Want To Win or Look Good Losing? - Duron Chandler (Mon, 26 Apr 2021)
This morning as I was reviewing my notes from Duron’s call last night I realized how fortunate I am to be a part of a community committed to helping people live their best lives. Duron made mention of how important his network’s support was in him smashing his goals. The conversation gave me confirmation that our movement is a necessary one. Helping people attain their dreams is our sole purpose and we are so happy that he has allowed us to go on this journey with him. It is so hard to believe this guy was in approximately 60k of debt and took 2 years to find work in his field of study after college. Today he has passive real estate investments outside of his 401k, a fully funded emergency fund, a happy marriage, a new child on the way, and so much more. It confirms that the strategies work when the appropriate level of effort is applied. I took a lot of notes during this call but the highlights from my view are below:For many people it seems like a life without discipline is the good life. Early on Duron spent his money frivolously. He bought project cars, ATVs, partied every weekend and stopped taking care of his body. Today, he has left those unhealthy habits behind and the majority of his decisions are the opposite of what he did in his mid 20s.•Do you really want to win or look good losing?oWill you take full responsibility for your situation?oAre you willing to give up whatever it takes to get what you say you want?oWill you stop raising your lifestyle every time you raise your income?•You can budget everything if you are willing to stick to your plan•Celebrate accomplishment of your goals•Getting a second job, diverting raises and other free cash flow from retired debt can be a powerful wealth building tool•Be clear on what is a need versus a want•Spend time getting to know yourself and then make the best parts of you better and manage your weaknesses•Be clear about your “why” and don’t waver from your pursuit of it when times get hard•Know that you can be the catalyst for generational wealth•Living paycheck to paycheck doesn’t have to be your way of life•You don’t have to repeat the example that your parents provided. It is ok to only take the things that align with what you want for your life.•Take measured risk to get closer to your goals•Cultivate a disciplined lifestyle•Be weary of do nothing days•Be patient with your partner if they don’t understand the changes you are making in your life. In the end they are likely to support you if you are truly committed to the change.•If what you have been doing isn’t getting you the results you desire find someone who has done what you want to do and share your situation with them. They may be willing to help you move closer to your dreams.•The road to happiness is a tough journey that will continually evolve. It is up to you to take complete responsibility for making progress on your worthy pursuit.Duron’s desire to give away $500,000 a year is audacious and inspiring and I’m certain he will get there through his disciplined lifestyle.As you can see there were many great ideas and concepts shared on this call. If you missed the call or want to revisit some of the conversation I have attached a link to the recording here. We are seeing more and more people accessing the recordings. We really appreciate you being a champion for our cause!

In the joint venture projects they have proven that you can make a profit AND have a positive impact on the community as long as everyone is aligned. When using 3rd party property management having a clear end goal and matching values is core to having a successful productive partnership.Do you want to purchase a multifamily building or apartment community but don't have prior investing experience? Do you feel like access to private capital is holding you back from getting in your first deal? Have you been looking for properties but unable to find a good deal? Do you have the confidence in your skills to execute a business plan? We are all troubled by one or all of these issues…The Myers Methods Online Multifamily Course is designed to shorten the time you need to learn multifamily investing, reduce the likelihood of making costly mistakes and help you find, fund, fix and flip your first multifamily property. This course will expose you to all of the core competencies you need in order to be successful in this business.The course is designed to get you from where you are in your financial life to creating sustainable passive income through real estate. Being an entrepreneur is a tough mental game but when you add in the lack of forgiveness in real estate having the appropriate mindset is critical to success. We believe dreams should be real and this course will be foundational to you taking your journey to freedom and making a positive impact on the community.In this course you will learn the exact process I took once I left corporate America and immersed myself in real estate fulltime.

Burn the Boats - Jerome Myers (Thu, 25 Jul 2019)
A lot of aspiring investors hesitate to leave the security of a high-paying job to pursue real estate. And very few are brave enough to quit their 9-to-5 and go all-in on multifamily investing without a few deals to their credit and the cashflow to cover their living expenses. Burning the boats is not for everyone, but Jerome Myers had a financial runway, and he’d had it with corporate America. So, he walked away from a six-figure engineering position to make his dreams real.Jerome is the Managing Director of The Myers Development Group, a real estate investment firm on a mission to build a portfolio of 1,000 units and free 100 people from work they aren’t passionate about. Jerome quit his corporate job to pursue real estate in 2017, and since then, he has joint ventured on several multifamily deals and is in the process of syndicating a 112-unit development deal in Greensboro, North Carolina, known as Technology Row. He is also the Chief Inspiration Officer for Dreamcatchers, a podcast featuring ordinary people doing extraordinary things.Today, Jerome joins me to explain what motivated him to quit his corporate job and go all-in on multifamily—before he’d done a single deal! He shares his struggle to land that first property with no track record and offers insight into his experience with the phenomenon I call The Law of the First Deal. Jerome also describes the differences between joint venturing and syndicating, discussing why he prefers partnering but understands the need to engage LPs as you scale. Listen in for Jerome’s advice around leveraging a coach to fast-track your success and get inspired by his ‘dreams should be real’ philosophy for pursuing what you love.KEY TAKEAWAYSWhy Jerome quit his job before he had a dealNever right time, tired of golden handcuffs excuseFrustrated with inhumanity of corporate America Learn more about your ad choices.
