Ep 036: From getting shot at to creating 4Networking, which has over 5,000 networking events in the UK, with Brad Burton
2997
Founder of 4Networking, Brad Burton has achieved success while refusing to compromise who he is. He notes, “If you’ve got to pretend to be something you’re not in order to win business, that’s not success.”

He joins me in this episode as we discuss:
-How Brad turned his life around -- from getting shot at to founding 4Networking
-What it takes to succeed while being yourself
-Why people struggle to make decisions
Dec 19, 2019
Brad Burton (The Juicy Bits): BE YOU and follow your own dream of success
622
Juicy Bits Reflections on:

1. Everyone has a story
2. Follow your own dreams of success
3. Be you

This week’s Juicy Bits episode supports the Brad Burton interview which will be released on Thursday.

Brad has a remarkable story which starts with him getting shot at twenty-odd years ago and continues with his founding 4Networking. You’ll hear all about it on the podcast on Thursday.

Juicy Bits Reflections:
Everyone has a story
Follow your own dreams of success
Be you

[02:15] Everyone has a story
I asked Brad how people who don’t have a story like his can drive and inspire themselves, and Brad replied, “Everyone has a story.”

He’s right. It might not be as dramatic as someone shooting through the windscreen of your car, but your story is your story. You just need to think about what your key inflection points are.

Think about the key moments of your life
If this happened emotionally, you’ll remember those key points. They could be conversations, situations. That’s your story. Think about how your doing relates to that story.

[05:43] Follow your own dreams of success
What is success?
Success for me is having a more flexible life -- being able to attend my kids’ events, being around more, coaching my son’s football team, spending time with my twin daughters.

What does success look like to you?
Block out the sounds of other people. Figure out what success means to you.

Most successful entrepreneurs -- I mean success in the sense that they’re doing what they want to do -- have followed with laser focus what they want to do.

[07:14] Be you
How do you be you?
Often, we can get buffeted around by what we think expectations of others might be, whether that’s parents, coworkers, people on social media we don’t even know.

A good question for all of us to ask is, “Who am I?”

Live in alignment with your own personal values
If you get to the end of day where you’re unhappy, it might just be that you’re not living in alignment with your own personal values

Build your business and life around the things that are important to you
If you get an email that says you’re going to die in the next 24 hours, you’re not going to send the next email to your client. You’re not going to bother with that invoice. You will focus on what’s important. How do we build our business and our lives around those things which are important?

Ep 016: Brutal honesty, the art of non-judgement and her biggest failure in life with Sarah-Anne Lucas aka Bird
2353
This week we talk with Sarah-Anne Lucas aka Bird. Bird is an author, international speaker, businesswomen, Ironman, and most importantly, Mum to three extraordinary little people (well, maybe not so little anymore!).

In this episode, Bird tells us about her business ventures including Bird on a Bike, her upcoming book, and her weekly talk show. Bird explains what she is hungry for; she wakes up at 5 am because she needs to and thrives off of it. By running a flourishing business and working hard to stay a competitive athlete, Bird wants to be an inspiration for her adult children. Then, Bird discusses the art of being non-judgmental and allowing your children to be who they want to be rather than whom you think they should be. Later, Bird describes her biggest failure - she was not able to stay married to her ex-husband. Plus, something Bird needs to work on is resting; mentally, it is challenging to rest.
