Jayson Gaddis on Creating Indestructable Relationships
28:50

Ep #153 - Jayson Gaddis, a relationship teacher and student along with the host of the Smart Couple Podcast, joins me for an interview on The Driven Entrepreneur Podcast. Jayson is on a mission to teach people the one topic, or one class, they didn’t get when there in school: “How to do intimate relationships.” This is why he founded the Relationship School. He describes himself as being emotionally constipated for years before relationship failures forced him to turn his life over to studying and learning about relationships.

Now, Jayson is married to his amazing wife since 2007 and he has two beautiful kids. When he rests on his laurels and finds himself not living and breathing the same principles that he teaches, his family let him know about it.

In our interview, we discuss the different relational blueprints and Jayson shares methods he has learned to calm down to work through issues. Anyone in a relationship can benefit from this discussion. Enjoy!

Steve Cockram on Discovering Your Leadership Voice
32:39

Ep # 148 - My guest this week is Steve Cockram, an international speaker, author, and consultant to top-level executives and leaders around the world. Steve is dedicated to empowering the leader in everyone. He is a subject matter expert on personality and wiring, organizational leadership, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal communication.

Steve is the co-founder of GiANT Worldwide, a global leadership consultancy. He is also co-author of the books 5 Gears and 5 Voices. He has worked with companies like Ford, Biogen, Chick Fila, Lockheed and the United States Air Force.

He is the creator of the 5 Voices System which has helped clients experience the following results:

  • Greater Self-Awareness: Learn your voice and understand what it’s like to be on the other side of your leadership.
  • Better Alignment: Discover the sweet spots of those on your team, get better aligned, and reach higher levels of performance.
  • Clear Communication: Communicate what you mean without people taking it the wrong way and getting offended.
  • Effective Delegation: Delegate more effectively to save time and increase productivity.
  • High Performance: Confidently build high-performing teams, rather than taking shots in the dark and hoping people do their jobs well.
  • Quicker Decisions: Learn how to listen better, ask helpful questions, and make quicker decisions.

Steve’s passion for leaders, team communication, change management and work/life balance is clearly echoed through his books, speaking and executive consulting. He is coach to a number of CEOs and is a sought after speaker both in the US and in his native UK. He inspires audiences to create better organizations through his heart-level stories, use of humor and expertise in human interactions.

Cockram's leadership and management models have widespread appeal in large part due to the multiplication effect – rather than just the leader being transformed, they provide a framework for spreading this transformation throughout organization through ‘intentional apprenticeship’. Steve has been married to Helen for 24 years, during which time they have lived in 12 different houses on two continents. They are now living back in the UK in Gerrards Cross, London with their three girls. This has helped him with his moderate addiction to Liverpool soccer (or football, in his case). 

Enjoy this interview with the brilliant and highly accomplished Steve Cockram. There's a ton to learn from Steve's experience in the fields of leadership and entrepreneurship.

Richard Kincaid on Launching a Living Garden Walls Company
29:40

Ep #147 - My guest today, Richard Kincaid, is the founder and CEO of Sagegreenlife, a design and manufacturing company specializing in living garden walls. As a strategic leader with a background in real estate, Kincaid drives the firm's mission of bringing a sense of well-being, purpose, and beauty to commercial and residential spaces across the globe.

Mr. Kincaid has held three C-level positions at Equity Office – CFO, COO and CEO. During his tenure as CEO, he substantially restructured the company’s portfolio. The company sold $8 billion, or 60 million square feet, of office space, purchased $3 billion in office assets within supply-constrained markets, and purchased $3 billion in the company’s stock at an average price of $30.50. By the time the company was sold to the Blackstone Group for total consideration of $39 billion ($55.50 per share), the portfolio’s geographic concentration had gone from 55% in coastal markets to 90% in coastal markets. The company’s total return during Mr. Kincaid’s tenure as CEO was over 36% compounded annually.

Sagegreenlife has gone on to land major contracts with enterprise companies like Apple and continues to grow and expand. In this interview, we get into Richard's background in business, the genesis of Sagegreenlife, and what truly drives him as a leader and entrepreneur. Enjoy my interview with Mr. Richard Kincaid.

Nicholas Bayerle on Reaching an Ultimate State of Health, Power, and Confidence
29:07

Ep #146 - Nicholas Bayerle, an international speaker, podcast host, and social media influencer, joins me on the show this week for an inspiring and motivating interview. In our conversation, we discuss the topic of achieving greatness and the actions it actually takes for attainment. As CEO of The Billion Dollar Body, Nicholas specializes in helping men to reach an ultimate state of health, power, and confidence. Having worked with over 600 private clients, Nicholas has identified common patterns that block men from achieving full potential success. He helps them to overcome these areas by working to align their "what," "why," and "how." Sometimes a person may claim a high-level goal, but then show a lack of interest or willingness in doing the full amount of work necessary to achieve it. In cases like this, Nicholas works to get his clients to step back from the fake illusion and to embrace realistic goals based on their own threshold of willingness.

Nicholas now surrounds himself with top-tier entrepreneurs and influencers including the likes of Lewis Howes, Cole Hatter, and Jay Abraham. Through his speaking, podcasting, and social media presence, he has built a large audience of engaged followers and was recognized by Influencive as a "top 30 under 30" influencer.

Late in our interview, Nicholas describes one of his business philosophies as being a broker for the success of others. He describes how adopting this perspective changed the way he approached sales and other areas of his life. Nicholas has incredible wisdom to share and this provides a glimpse into some of the amazing things that you can learn from following him further.

Ep # 140 - My guest today is Horst Schulze, the chairman and CEO of Capella Hotel Group which is a legend and leader in the service world. Horst was the founding president of the Ritz Carlton and his impact on the hotel industry has been massive. Through his vision, Horst helped to reshape concepts of customer service that have now been adopted widespread throughout the hospitality and service industries.

Back in 1991, Horst was recognized as "corporate hotelier of the world" by HOTELS magazine. A few years later, he was awarded the Ishikawa Medal for his personal contributions to the quality movement. These contributions led Johnson & Wales University to bestow him with an honorary Doctor of Business Administration Degree in Hospitality Management.

Horst served as vice chairman of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company from 2001-2002, after serving as president and COO of The Ritz-Carlton Group since 1988. Under his leadership, the Group was awarded the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award twice which they received in the years 1992 and 1999. The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company became the first and only hotel company to win one of these awards. Under his leadership, Ritz-Carlton was continuously voted “best hotel company in the world” by meeting and other trade publications.

Upon joining Ritz-Carlton as a charter member and VP of Operations in 1983, Horst created the operating and service standards that have become world famous. He was appointed EVP in 1987 and president and COO in 1988. When he left Ritz-Carlton to form the Capella Hotel Group, Horst was responsible for the $2 billion Ritz-Carlton operations worldwide.

Prior to his long tenure with Ritz-Carlton, Horst spent nine years with Hyatt Hotels Corporation. There, he served as a hotel general manager, a regional VP, and a corporate VP. Before Hyatt, he also had worked for Hilton Hotels.

Horst serves on the boards of Reliance Trust Company, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, The Travel Institute, Georgia Family Council and The InfiLaw System. He has a wealth of knowledge on the hotel and service industries as well as unique insights into achieving business excellence. In fact, the title of his book is called "Excellence Wins."

Jarrod Castillo - Peak Performance Coach and Creator of the Wolf Method
31:35

Ep # 139 - My guest this week is Jarrod Castillo, a peak performance coach for young adults and the creator of the WOLF method. Jarrod guides young adults and helps them to make the next big leap in their lives. He is a professional acrobat, a movement enthusiast, a multi-sport state level college champion, and an active participant in AcroYoga. Throughout his time in college, Jarrod completed over 300 hours of volunteer service, worked part-time, and graduated debt free. He earned Magna Cum Laude Honors with degrees in both Education and Psychology.

Partway through college, he suffered a car accident that led to months of recovery and interrupted his life path. Almost immediately after the accident, he also suffered the loss of a very close friend. These two events led him into mental health issues and depression which created major difficulties in his life. Only after completing countless hours of personal development, reading, online education, workshops, seminars, meditation, and guidance from coaches and mentors, he was able to transcend the problems in his life.

Jarrod's goal is to now use his education and experiences to provide other youths with the same support and encouragement he received so that they can too be on a fast track to success, fulfillment, and achievement.

Adam Schaeuble on Inspiring Transformation in Others...
28:39

Ep #131 - Adam Schaeuble, aka "The PHD" - Previously Heavy Dude - joins me on the show this week to discuss how he uses his personal story and experience to inspires others to transform their lives. Adam reached a low point early in his life when he was still in his twenties and tipping the scale at 327 pounds. Even at this young age, he began experiencing dangerous health consequences, so he made a decision to overhaul his life and fitness strategy. The result was over 100 pounds of weight loss and people noticing an incredible change. 

Rather than being satisfied with only his own success, Adam felt inspired and took what he learned form his transformation journey to create a boot camp aimed at helping others. From this boot camp he was able to produce more than 35,000 pounds of weight loss from community members in his home town of Bloomington, IN.

Adam found that helping others transform was a critical component to his journey. From his experience, he started The Million Pound Mission podcast where he continues to inspire large groups of people to make dramatic shifts in their health and lifestyles. His website and Instagram profile highlight members of his community who have also achieved incredible results. 

He has set his sights on inspiring over one million pounds of healthy results through his podcast, coaching programs, and the Million Pound Mission Boot Camp.

Adam recently started a second podcast called "Casting the Pod." With this podcast, he seeks to help other podcasts to solidify their dreams of being content producers and influencers.

James Green - UK Filmmaker on Bridging Cultural Gaps
32:38

Ep #123 - My guest today is James Green, a filmmaker from the United Kingdom that specializes in bridging cultural gaps through his craft. James has worked with British royalty like Price Harry, fashion brands like Beulah London who clothe Princess Kate, hop-hop artist Oddisee, and recording artist Joshua Luke Smith. He also was involved along with Bishop Tony Palmer in working with Pope Francis on bridging the gap between church and culture.

James founded "Of Dust and Stars" which is a community of filmmakers, musicians and communicators. They seek to create film, music and art that builds bridges between the "sacred" and the "secular", creating modern day parables. They believe these act as moments for people that help them engage in understanding the need for media in bridging gaps between the unchurched and the gospel

Ep #120 - Norman Bell, the found of "Hell Yes Life," the host of "The Hell Yes Entrepreneur Podcast," and the author of the upcoming book, "The Hell Yes Entrepreneur," drops by the show this week for an amazing interview. Additionally, Norman is an award winning public speaker, a performer, a presentation coach, and an expert communicator who has leveraged his communication skills to help Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, HP, and AT&T, along with PBS travel show host Rick Steves. As an actor, Norman starred in the movie, "The Machinist," along side Academy Award winner Christian Bale. He also wrote, co-produced, and starred in the popular solo show "SUBPRIME!"

Here's some backstory on Norman. When he was in high school, Norman ran for student council with the campaign slogan "Hell Yes! Vote for Norm!" and he won that election by a landslide. Over 25 years later, those words from his successful campaign slogan still rung in his ears.

In 2017, he launched "The Hell Yes Entrepreneur Podcast" where he interviews amazing, purpose-driven entrepreneurs including authors, speakers, adventurers, artists, and world changers, who are running their "Hell Yes" businesses and living their "Hell Yes" lives. Previous guests on the podcast have included millionaire podcaster John Lee Dumas, Mount Everest Climber Cathy O'Dowd, and former rock star Chris Ballew.

Chris Burns on Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self
01:11:07

Ep #118 - Chris Burns, AKA Mr. "Heart Fire," joins the show today to discuss how to become your greatest possible self. Clients hire Chris to hold them accountable so they can breakthrough their BS while he encourages them to be their best and achieve higher levels of personal and professional performance.

Chris hit rock bottom at an early age and figured out how to bounce back stronger than ever. He has since spoken on stages across the United States, and over the last 2 years, he has interviewed more than 500 inspirational role models, influencers and leaders on his weekly, 12-hour live-streamed marathon and podcast called "Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self."

In today's interview, I talk with Chris about overcoming a troubled and party-centered teenage life and finding self worth as I too went through a similar stage in my own life. Chris shares his early struggles with fitting in and the important of finding community.

Chris found it difficult to let go of the shame and guilt that came with hitting rock bottom and getting arrested, but he learned that putting his past behind him was essential to be able to step into speaking and coaching along with sharing his story. He now believes that each of us can choose to make our stories mean anything. So, if this is true, why not choose an empowering meaning for your life's story.

 

Later in the interview we go behind the scenes regarding his 12-hour marathon podcast. We explore why and how he sets it up this way and talk about how it got started. Chris will share a bit about what he has learned from having 9 powerful interviews a day, and how you can lead your own version of it in your community as a coach, speaker, or entrepreneur. It's a powerful interview so enjoy!

Art Costello - Mastering Your Expectations with Expectation Therapy
28:09

Ep #111 - Today, I welcome Art Costello as my guest on the show. Art is an author and entrepreneur with a unique background as he served as a marine in Vietnam, played college and professional baseball, earned a degree in psychology, and has now created a personal development modality known as expectation therapy. He's virtually done it all and he still has plenty left in the tank.

Art created expectation therapy which is a technique to achieve self mastery by letting go of expectations. Expectation Therapy works to transform how you and the world communicate, perceive, and process expectations. It aims to teach you that your expectations can transform your life for the better. It’s not what others expect of you that really matters, it’s how you react to your own self-expectations that have been developed throughout your years that count the most.

Jay Gabrani - How a Father Comes Back From Loss
40:34

Ep #107 - What would happen to your family if you passed away suddenly? In today's epsiode, I sit down with Jay Gabrani, founder of Prepared Fathers, to discuss this exact question.

After Jay's first child was born in 2005, he jumped into the world of real estate investing. Despite several challenges along the way, Jay built a multiple seven-figure real estate portfolio. That portfolio helped him take a multi-year sabbatical to deal with heartbreaking personal tragedy when his wife passed away in 2014.

This experience lead Jay to reevaluate the purpose of his life while taking a multi year sabbatical. Before his wife passed away, Jay thought he was financially prepared. After going through the experience of being the executor of his wife's estate, he realized he wasn't.

Today, Jay makes an impact raising his three children and empowering Fathers to secure their Family's Financial Future as the founder of Prepared Fathers.

He achieves this through his one-on-one and group coaching programs and his daily podcast A Minute with Jay. He is a frequent podcast guest and does a limited number of speaking engagements.

Radio Interviews and How to Crush It!
01:10:45

Ep #98 - Hey, it's Matt Brauning and I'm excited to share this episode because I will be covering the topic of radio interviews and how to crush it when you are on the air. If you ever have the chance to get yourself and your business in front of media outlets such as radio, television, podcasts or live events, it's important to understand what to expect and how to succeed within an interview.

In today's discussion, I will share my top tips for holding interesting interviews that benefit both you and the host of the show you are on. To demonstrate how I handle interviews, I will first describe my interview strategies and then share a live radio interview that I did with Dr. Nita Vallens on KPFK with thousands of listeners. This interview was a fundraiser and I think you can learn a lot from paying attention to how I navigate the interview, the stories I share, and the transition we both make to the fundraising section. Also, listen to how the host handles her role and how we bounce back and forth off of each other. Take some notes, listen in, and enjoy the show.

It's a tremendous show and I encourage everyone to check it out.

Are you stuck, or do you see possibilities
27:29

Ep #93 - "What you are expecting determines whether you will or will not be able to see the possibilities all around you." This is a quote by Daniel L. Castro and I recently shared this on my Instagram page (@mattbrauning). When I posted this, the word from this quote that really stuck out to me was "possibilities." 

I wanted to do an episode this week that goes into some NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) concepts. NLP can be thought of as the study of excellence, the study of success, but it's also the study of the language of the mind.

One of the biggest areas of language is called modal operators. There are several types of modal operators which is a fancy way of saying the mode in which we operate. It's how we walk through life and you are either walking through life in a world of possibility or in a world of necessity.

We go pretty deep into this concept and discuss the difference between possibility words and necessity words. If you're interested in this stuff and want to learn it as part of your business, grab a pad of paper and a pen and take some notes. If it's not relevant to your business, listen up anyways because you're going to learn a lot from this discussion. 

This episode is dropping on Christmas Day so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our listeners.

Jay Fiset - Canadian Farm Boy Turned Millionaire Entrepreneur...
01:31:30

Ep #92 - In this episode, I sit down with Jay Fiset, a Canadian farm boy turned entrepreneur, to go into his story. Let me start by giving some background on Jay. He is a best selling author, master facilitator, and mastermind trainer and has been in the business for over 3 decades. Jay is a student of human nature, an avid outdoorsman at 5 star hotels, and he can see and reflect your life mission within 5 minutes flat of meeting you.

We discuss what it was like for Jay growing up in rural Canada, being left on his own to bike around town at age 12, and even how he started his first business.

Jay shares how he bought his first motorcycle with "bottle-pickin" money (you'll have to listen to learn what it means!!) and how he turned a losing business around with no outside loans into a 7-figure enterprise. It's an amazing story and you won't want to miss it.

Patience is Also a Form of Action...
22:16

Ep #91 - "Patience is also a form of action." I recently put this post up on my Instagram page (@mattbrauning) and it had me thinking. Patience has been such an important theme in my life that I wanted to take some time and have a discussion about it. 

There are two different ways to approach life: Passive / Waiting OR Active / Moving. Look at the season that you are in for your life. In our lives, there is a time for moving and a time for standing still. What season are you in and are you taking the appropriate action based on that season?

I think this episode will get you thinking and provides lots of good insights. Take some notes on a whole page and enjoy!

Look in the Mirror...
09:32

Ep #89 - "Look in the Mirror. That's your competition." This was a quote Matt Brauning recently shared on Instagram (@mattbrauning) to quite a bit of feedback from his community. 

The reality is that most people don't look to themselves to find their competition. Instead, most people look to 3 other sources which won't properly serve them.

In this episode, Matt breaks down the 3 sources most entrepreneurs turn to when looking for competition and why this line of thinking can create problems. It's a great discussion so take some notes and enjoy.

Secret To Make Your Goals Happen (Shhhhhhh...)
11:21

Ep #73 - What's the secret to make your goals happen? Today I share one simple resource: FLEXIBILITY. The more flexible you can become in your goals approach, the more ways you can find to win.

How can you take on more flexibility in life and what does it mean for you, what does it do for you? Perhaps you've found yourself not getting something done that you want to get done. When you find that, I take on the philosophy that the person with the most flexibility will always control the environment. 

Today's discussion is all about flexibility and a lot of the content derives from Evolution Seminar's Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) content. 

Listen in and enjoy the show.

The Story of My Brother John Frederick Brauning V.
01:19:41

Ep #65 - Today is the 5 year anniversary of my brother John’s passing, and I wanted to share his story in long form.

This is a bonus episode, so bear with me as I take my time, and talk about some funny stories growing up, share his never quit attitude, and why his life was a gift.

John was my older brother by 3 years, and passed away at 36 from stage 4 colon cancer. I wanted a place to share his story and legacy so anyone could get to know him.

I’m also sharing this for anyone who has walked through hard things like:

Tragic Car Accidents
Traumatic Brain Injury
Stroke
Losing a Child, Sibling, or Parent
Being a Caretaker

I talk about being teased as a kid, the crazy dares he used to make me do, how he persevered and obtained a masters degree with a brain injury, and even finding the love of his life, his wife Bonnie.

This is the story, from my perspective, of John Frederick Brauning V.

Thanks for listening.

Dave Nassaney - The Caregiver's Caregiver
54:56

Ep #61 - In today's episode, Matt Brauning sits down with Dave Nassaney, a caregiver, caregiver advocate, best-selling author, speaker, and entrepreneur. Dave states that his most important role in life has been serving as a caregiver to his lovely wife Charlene. Twenty-two years ago, Charlene suffered a massive stroke that left her severely speech impaired and paralyzed on the right side. This incident led to Dave's personal journey of becoming a caregiver and it has led to his advocacy for other caregivers. 

For some background, here are a couple little-known stats about caregivers: 

30% of caregivers actually die before their loved ones. 

40-61% of caregivers have felt down, depressed, and hopeless just over the last two weeks.

Caregivers often spend so much time caring for others that their own needs are neglected. One of Dave's speaking points has been to teach caregivers how to avoid caregiver burnout and how to receive self-care.

Dave is the author of the best-selling book, "It's My Life Too!" Reclaim Your Caregiver Sanity by Learning When to Say Yes and When to Say No."

Check out Dave's book on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2QgCM8i

Chad Ridgely - Comedian, Writer, Filmmaker, and Entrepreneur...
01:13:15

Ep #57 - In today's episode, Matt sits down with Chad Ridgely, a comedian, writer, filmmaker, and entrepreneur. Chad will share about his start in the entertainment industry including his studies at the famous Groundlings Comedy School in Los Angeles.

Chad always had the vision of becoming an actor and working in Hollywood, but he has a very interesting story where he took a major detour from that path in college.

After being cast in a film to play a police officer, Chad did a few ride alongs with the local police and became infatuated with their work. In a sudden shift, he changed his major to Criminal Justice and then spent the next 10 years working as a cop.

He had a lot of success in the police field, but always kept his passion in the area of entertainment. After a decade in law enforcement, he returned to Los Angeles to resume his passion.

Since returning to Los Angeles, he has written two feature films, landed a pilot show with Fox, and become a stand up comic.

Chad's two movies are both in the comedy-horror genre and are titled "6:66pm" and "Massacre on Isle 12."

Listen in for the whole interview because Chad has an amazing story and he's had some pretty incredible experiences that he will share.

Let Go of Balance and Find Rhythms
15:47

Ep #56 - In today's episode, Matt discusses letting go of balance and embracing rhythms instead. The word 'balance' is a verb, not a noun, and it should be though of as an action rather than a destination to achieve. 

Matt suggests focusing on the rhythms of life instead of seeking balance. Rhythms shift and change and tend to come in seasons. When you recognize rhythms, you can adapt to them and make changes when necessary.

3) You aren't doing things at all

Can a Customer Change Their Stripes?
23:20

Ep #50 - The big question asked in this episode is "Can a customer change their stripes?"

Matt starts this conversation by referencing a simple three-step formula that comes from a book written by Keith Cunningham called "The Road Less Stupid." This is how the formula goes:

Step 1 - Find Out what Your customer wants

Step 2 - Go Get It

Step 3 - Give It To Them

It's the most obvious thing in the world, but most entrepreneurs will complicate this severely.

Many entrepreneurs tend to sell things that they believe people need rather than asking what they actually want. The problem with this is that they fail to assess the culture and environment of their market ahead of time.

This is a big mistake and Matt will share why it is absolutely critical to know the culture of your customers before getting started. 

If you'd like to read Keith Cunningham's full book, "The Road Less Stupid," you can find it on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2mYyp4o

The official "The Firebox Principle" hard cover book launch is coming up on August 13th in Orange County, CA. General admission will be absolutely free and VIP tickets will also be available. The VIP tickets include a signed copy of the book, early admission, a special Q&A with Matt, and VIP food and drinks. You can get these tickets for just $30.

The Avenger Drive - "This Must Change!"
27:25

Ep #48 - In this episode of the podcast, Matt breaks down "The Avenger Drive" which is one of the seven drives that fuel every entrepreneur. The Avenger Drive has the catchphrase "This Must Change!"

This drive often originates when an entrepreneur feels they were wronged or that an injustice was committed against them. The result is that a business is created outside of someones anger. The person becomes so mad that they decide to take action and do something to change the situation. Anger is one of the most powerful motivators that inspire people to create something.

An example of an entrepreneur that created a business from "The Avenger Drive" would be Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of Lamborghini. Listen to the episode for a detailed account of his story, additional examples, and a full descritption of this entrepreneurial drive. 

This episode marks the third and final drive to be discussed here on the podcast and it relates back to the launch of Matt's brand new ebook, "The Firebox Principle: The 7 Drives That Fuel Every Entrepreneur."

01:16:40

Ep #44 - In this very special episode, Matt Brauning sits down with 4-time Olympian and motivational speaker, Ruben Gonzalez.

In 1983, Ruben was a benchwarmer for his college soccer team and did not have any major athletic accomplishments. Since then, he has gone on to be a 4-time Olympian and he will be competing for a record coming up. He is the first Winter Olympian in history to compete in four different decades.

[Bonus Episode] - The Journey of Entrepreneurship
24:15

Ep #36 - After speaking with Christian Mickelsen’s amazing high level mastermind peeps, Matt got to thinking about the journey of entrepreneurship from origin to now.

What should we be willing to do in business in the beginning, middle, and twilight of our careers?

Does entrepreneurship require absolute hustle and grind or is owning your own business about freedom and enjoying the good life?

[Bonus Session Q&A] – Why Don't I See More NLP Work with the Gustatory (Smell) Modality?
19:16

Ep #24 - This is a bonus episode which comes from one of my Monday Facebook Live Q&A session where Matt answers questions that are submitted from the podcast audience, Evolution clients, or anyone that has a burning desire to have a question answered related to entrepreneurship and/or NLP. This week, Matt answers two questions that both come from Marie Josee LeBlanc, a client of Evolution.

Question #1:

When there is a reference to VAKOG, it seems like there is no list for gustatory nor olfactory predicates phrases. I know these are not as commonly use in NLP AND, still, if you had a list or predicates we could use that would be cool! Even online there is not that much said.

I work a lot with olfactory with my work with doterra essential oils and consequently, I may have more clients in that category than others. Since the sense of smell is linked to the oldest memory, emotions and fight or flight response, then why are we not including it more in our NLP work?

Question #2:

In Mapping across Matt you mentioned to look for a kinesthetic change. What if you are doing sessions on the phone?

Get the answers to these questions and more by listening to this week's episode. As alway, we encourage you to share your feedback. If you have comments, questions, or an idea for a future episode, find me on social media:

Ep #21 - Welcome to The Purpose Driven Entrepreneur Podcast with Matt Brauning, Episode #21.

*Quick Disclaimer: I've been under the weather this week and will return with a new studio recorded episode next week. The audio in this episode comes from a FB Live I recorded while driving. The audio is not perfect, but the content is still important and relevant.

In today's bonus episode, the theme is around one main question. This came from NLP Mastery student Carissa Espinoza who asked:

I am struggling to speak with authority. I feel like I don't have a voice (it doesn't have value). When it comes to business, every time I go to talk about something, I get tongue-tied and my mind tells me to stop talking. How should I approach this? What can I do to change this?

This was an excellent question and something that many people tend to relate with. For my answer and an in-depth discussion about authority and expert status, listen in.

"What was the heartbeat behind starting your own company?"

41:44

Ep #9 - Welcome to Episode #9 of the Purpose Driven Entrepreneur Podcast with Matt Brauning. 

In this episode, Matt Brauning is joined by producer Jeremy Nunez to open up a three part series on the topic of Mastering Sales. We kick this series off with part 1 which focuses on the concept of crafting offers in business. Matt digs deep here to uncover the components that make up a good offer and how these are used to trigger certain psyhological responses.

Here are some of the keys explored in this episode:  

1.) How you can make sure that you are creating value and contributing to your clients rather than selling empty promises

2.) How to sell the outcome versus selling the product or service directly

3.) The difference between selling a one-off product or service versus creating and selling a package

4.) The difference between features and benefits and when each are useful

This is going to be an amazing series for any entrepreneur that wants to get better at sales without feeling pushy or out of character. Matt will share different concepts, ideas, and strategies for the sales process while also tying in NLP techniques within the discussion. Check it out, rate and subscribe to the podcast, and come back next week for the next chapter in the Mastering Sales series. You won't want to miss it!

[Bonus Q&A Session] Embedded Commands, the Meaning of Insecurity, and Going Deep with NLP...
22:06

Ep #6 - Bonus episode from Live Q&A time! I answer a HUGE question on embedded commands in communication, as well as go into anxiety and whether it has control in your life.  Join in on these bonus episodes on facebook live every Monday at facebook.com/mattbrauning

Here are a couple of the questions asked this week:

#1 Bruce Moreno asked:

When it comes to embedded commands, is it more effective/does it make a difference if you use them in the past tense vs. the present? Example: "I wonder, when was the last time you sat down and focused?" "I wonder when you last asked yourself, 'I should sit down, and focus.'" Additionally, how much of a difference is there when the embedded command is heard rather than read?

#2 Tanya Akl (Sunny) asked:

“I know anxiety is the subconscious mind's way of getting you to focus on what you want and guilt helps you keep in check with your values and integrity or something close to that. What about the emotional message and meaning of insecurity? What is the meaning of insecurity?

For the answers to these questions and more, you'll just have to listen!

Enjoy, and tune in each Tuesday for a new bonus Q&A and each Friday for a brand new episode.

[Bonus Q&A Session] Building a business, NLP and Psychology, using a meetup to get leads in biz...
28:47

Ep #4 - Today is a bonus episode from a Live Q&A answering a few hot questions of the week. Join in a facebook live session I did recently anwering things like:

1.) Nate Whalen asked what has one of your biggest personal takeaways been from building your own business ground up?

Answer) I talk about following your passion as a potentially good or bad thing, how to navigate this, and why much of today's advice doesn't work in that area.

2.) Bruce Moreno asked how well #NLP and traditional psychology play together.

Answer) I speak to the similarities and the differences between the two. How NLP tends to have a more "whole person" point of view versus normal or abnormal. In NLP there is no abnormal, simply behavior adaptions, and curiosity as to how people choose. More in the episode on this.

3.) Jim James Cassidy asked about setting up a meetup successfully in your business.

Answer) I share in the final third of the episode a few secrets to starting and launching a successful meetup group, and how to make sure people show up. Also about how long they should be, and a format for the evening meetup. Oh, and which days or evenings are the best for show up rates!

Enjoy, and tune in next week for a few more.

We discuss this week where to land on this conversation and how to steward our finances as an entrepreneur so when we earn lots, we still have lots! All this and more on what financial success means to different people.

Ikea food is way outside my budget!
33:12

Ep #1 - Welcome to Episode 1 of the Purpose Driven Entrepreneur Podcast with Matt Brauning. In our inaugural  episode, get to know me and my producer Jeremy bit, and find out what it actually means to be a "purpose driven entrepreneur!

 This episode expalins why Ikea food is way outside my budget! What?? Don't those meatballs cost like $3.99 for 600 of them? True, and that's what we are talking about today. The concept of having a maximum budget is familiar to most people, but what about having a "minimum" budget? When I think about the quality of life I want, and why I am in business, it's necessary to have standards of excellence! And Ikea food is way below that standard...
