Ep 89 - Look in the Mirror...
09:32

"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.

Ep 73 - Secret To Make Your Goals Happen (Shhhhhhh...)
11:21

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.

Ep 65 - The Story of My Brother John Frederick Brauning V.
01:19:41

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.

Ep 61 - Dave Nassaney - The Caregiver's Caregiver
54:56

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

Ep 57 - Chad Ridgely - Comedian, Writer, Filmmaker, and Entrepreneur...
01:13:15

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.

Ep 56 - Let Go of Balance and Find Rhythms
15:47

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.

Ep 52 - Why You Aren't Taking Action - 3 Pitfalls That May Have You Trapped
32:36

This week's episode looks at why people don't take action, even though they want to. This is a recurring issue that has come up time and time again in Matt's seminars and coaching. 

Often times, people will report feeling stuck in their business or life, even comparing the feeling to being stuck in a hamster wheel.

There are 3 different places you can be in your life or business:

1) You are doing things
2) You are preparing to do things
3) You aren't doing things at all

Matt will break down each of these areas and discuss how people can get trapped in each of these pitfalls. He will also share how he has helped others to escape the traps.

Listen in and enjoy the discussion.

Ep 50 - Can a Customer Change Their Stripes?
23:20

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.

Ep 48 - The Avenger Drive - "This Must Change!"
27:25

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."

Ep 44 - Ruben Gonzalez, 4-Time Olympian and Motivational Speaker
01:16:40

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. He is now a motivational speaker and has been invited to speak for 100 of the Fortune 500 companies.

Ruben has the intention of competing in the 2018 Winter Olympic Games at the age of 55 and to again compete in 2022 in Beijing. If he succeeds in that goal, he will become the oldest Winter Olympian in history at 59 years old and he will have competed in five total decades.

Ep #36 [Bonus Episode] - The Journey of Entrepreneurship

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?

Ep #24 [Bonus Session Q&A] – Why Don't I See More NLP Work with the Gustatory (Smell) Modality?
19:16

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:

05:14

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.

22:06

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!

Ep #4 [Bonus Q&A Session] Building a business, NLP and Psychology, using a meetup to get leads in biz...
28:47

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.

01:02:15

Welcome to Episode 3 of the Purpose Driven Entrepreneur Podcast with Matt Brauning. As my producer Jeremy and I start to figure out our stride, we awkwardly discuss stuff that is on my mind all week. Now it's here for you in podcast form, just for the "purpose driven entrepreneur!

This is our first ever interview episode, and if you want to be a more powerful communicator, this episode is for you! I welcome on Mike Begala, who is our head coach and head trainer at my company Evolution Seminars. Mike is responsible for training at all of our live workshops and seminars, as well as in charge of the coaching department.

Mike has also had a very lucrative consulting career spanning 20 years working in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia with organizations such as FedEx, Allergan, the US Army, US Army Reserve and the US Army Corps of Engineers to help improve their communication, efficiency and effectiveness.

In this episode, Mike and I discuss the NLP (neuro linguistic programming) concept of "framing." All the ways to construct communication for all different outcomes. You can frame, preframe, reframe, plus much more!

Ep #2 - Paid off vehicles, or lease brand new?
37:55

Welcome to Episode 2 of the Purpose Driven Entrepreneur Podcast with Matt Brauning. In our second ever episode, get to know me and my producer Jeremy bit more, and get a little deeper into the mind of Matt and how NLP (neuro linguistic programming) can help the "purpose driven entrepreneur!

I got a pink slip (CA DMV title) in the mail, and dicuss the merits and drawbacks to owning 3 vehicles outright with no loans. I've been on both sides of the spectrum: spend lots and have nice new stuff, or have a tight budget and nothing new! 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.

Ep #1 Ikea food is way outside my budget!
33:12

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...
