“I think I can somehow pay for us to live in Greece for a year... that was kinda how it all started.” ~Adam Dailey

Adam Dailey knows a thing or two about moving FAST. As a five-time All-American sprinter, Dailey ran for the University of Arkansas whose track teams racked up 9 NCAA titles while he was there

A bit later in life, Adam and his wife (also a former track star) did what seemed incomprehensible, if not impossible, traveling around the world on a twelve month sabbatical, with their (at the time) four children!

That journey is at the heart of this episode and interview and it's what inspired Adam to write his #1 Amazon bestseller, "How to Run Away From Home: And Take Your Family With You.

Adam recounts much of his early struggles in an entrepreneurial venture that stemmed largely from some overly-aggressive growth goals and shares how he was able to overcome what amounted to, at one point, losing about a million dollars in just one month!

Adam shares his best tips and insights about travel and warns the listener not to fall into the trap where travel seems to either be about the past or the future. He insists that NOW is almost always the very best time to travel. So listen up and get packing!

You can find Adam's bestseller here!

“I presented this idea to the executives at Capitol Records and they kinda just laughed me out of the building...” ~Evan Saxon

After a funny and bizarre episode open... where Martin says, “I’m not even going to edit that!” the two settle in and get to the business at hand.

Evan shares his bumpy early academic career bouncing between junior colleges and SDSU / Northridge Universities. Ultimately, Evan drops out, as he puts it, "the pursuit of a career got in the way of my pursuit of a degree."


Consumed by his passion for music and the music industry, Evan got his lucky break starting out as an intern at IRS Records. Then he moved into the marketing division of Capitol Records where he was offered a paid position. "I loved it! I didn't care what time I had to get up or how late I had to work. I was having a great time!"



Years later, a bit disillusioned by what he saw in multiple executive meetings — fighting the status quo “losing control vs. taking control” as Evan puts it, he realized it was time to move on.

One night at a Aerosmith  / Skid Row concert a wild idea occurred to him. A totally innovative concept (at the time) that proved to be ground-breaking. He realized that he could promote new bands and music in between the opening bands and the headliners. Evan then negotiated deals with music retailers for shelf space, “Right Between the Acts” was born.

Continuing to adapt to the ever-changing music and technology environments, Evan’s company today, Evan Saxon Productions (ESP), helps to promote and distribute content via a worldwide network of theaters.

"Anything other than a win/win is, ultimately, a lose/lose." ~Dr. Stephen Covey

Quick question: Are you really a "big-pie" person or are you concerned that if someone takes a piece of the pie there won't be anything left for you?

Which are you? BIG PIE or SMALL PIE?

MG and HE get right to business and discuss this massive mental shift. Martin confesses that growing up with a very competitive mindset his early entrepreneurial struggles were exacerbated by thinking to win someone else had to lose.

"One of the key lessons for me", Martin shares, "Is this idea of big pie vs small pie mentality and how there could, and should be multiple winners." The idea Covey shared changed how I negotiated and treated everyone; employees, vendors and customers etc.

Henry comments that in the movie "Wall Street" Gecko's claim that "It's a zero-sum game: somebody wins, somebody loses." is just plan wrong!

They talk about all the examples of businesses and owners who've given away ownership and stock within their companies to form tens and hundreds of millionaires; Google, Microsoft, SAIC, etc. Abundance, after all is a win/win, BIG Pie mindset and not just some new age, phoo phoo feel good language.

Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean." ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

What are the right goals for a person to set?

The essence of great goal setting begins with "starting with your own house"

There happen to be four essential quadrants that truly reflect and indicate whether your own well being is in order: Mind, Body, Spiritual and Social. In fact, MG recalls, this is precisely the way The Habit Factor® app has been setup with specific "habit” categories. Remember, “Health is the first wealth” as Ralph Waldo Emerson has famously said.

Recalling the wellness / oneness circle: It's an important exercise to divide your well being into these 4 Quadrants and then identify which of them needs immediate attention. Set your goal there first.

There's another fantastic byproduct of goal setting!

"30% of the time you are going to set the wrong goal… and that is actually GOLD! Think about it; had you not set the goal, you wouldn’t have known it was the wrong one!"

"You're wasting time NOT by setting the wrong goal. You are wasting time by not setting any goal and therefore, not getting the feedback/information you absolutely need.”

“Even in the most difficult times you are the one who gives your situation power by attaching a story to it”. ~Klyn Elsbury

Klyn Elsbury is one of the real change-makers of her generation! She's written a bestselling book, taught a Zumba class, runs a recruiting firm and perhaps most incredibly has done ALL of these things while battling Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disorder that affects mostly the lungs.

In fact, Klyn made her battle with Cystic Fibrosis public in 2015 in an effort to combat big pharma and make a critical drug affordable. "I was already taking about 20 other different medications daily, there was no way I could afford that $259,000 price tag so I wrote a heartfelt blog post and that ended up going viral."

Klyn touches on all of this and shares with Martin a handful of key mindsets that allow her to stay strong and push through the tough days.

Klyn also shares how her company has uniquely positioned itself in the recruiting space, her take on "success", her best habits, favorite app, and a great book she's recently enjoyed (links below) all on this episode of Habits 2 Goals.

Check out this fun and powerful episode!

The subject of this FAF (Frequently Asked Friday) rolls right out of MG's GTR, "Good Things Report" which involves his recent visit to Dallas for Russell Brunson's Funnelhacking live event.

If you're not familiar, Clickfunnels is a powerful marketing/selling software solution developed to provide business owners (really anyone who sells anything online) an easy to build, and in many cases, a pre-built sales "funnel" — a tool that drives prospects through a friendly sales process.

However, the question comes up, "What was the BIG takeaway from the 3 day event?" Martin's response has almost nothing to do with the Clickfunnels software itself! 

It's an inspiring takeaway though and it should fire-up anyone who's interested in promoting and selling their service/solution and/or products online.

Martin shares that a couple of the speakers at the event who used RB's Clickfunnels software had sold upwards of $100,000 before they were 15.

One of the key messages from the kids who presented was "Adults just over-think things!". So, if you're an entrepreneur or really just about anyone, selling anything online ClickFunnels just might be the perfect fit for you.

This link provides a FREE 14 Day Trial to check it out!

“You can change your destiny if you really understand marketing”.” ~Henry Evans

A reintroduction of our favorite co-host is in order since there have been many new subscribers and listeners between seasons. While Henry was interviewed in depth in Season II, we take some time in this short interview to chat with Henry about his expertise (marketing) and background as well as book and some thoughts on business and money!

Henry bounced around quite a bit as a kid, as his family moved about he ended up going to three different high schools! He attributes that experience to his outgoing personality. As a professional marketer, Henry recounts many of the key lessons learned (and those he wrote about in his book, "The Hour a Day Entrepreneur") and how he was able to make the leap from the corporate world to full-time entrepreneur.

Henry drops a nugget at the end of the show, something Martin hadn't heard before!

Check out this fun and powerful episode!

“Give me a long enough lever and a place to stand and I can move the world.”

In the battle to get ahead, often the first step is finding a better way to leverage the only limiting resource everyone shares, TIME.

Understanding how to properly leverage your time and ideas is a game changer and it's sure to boost your productivity. In this episode, Martin and I review some strategies to optimize your personal power (your ability to act on ideas) to help get the results you want!

Touching on Dr. Stephen Covey’s "Quadrants of Effectiveness", Martin shares a few tips for deciding when and how to outsource  (contract labor) to allow yourself more time to focus on the things most important to you.

Or, if you're not quite ready to source other experts, there are simply more effective ways to plan and use your days.

When you leverage your time more wisely, you simply take longer, more efficient steps toward your goal which accelerates your achievement and of course will have a life time effect on your achievements.

Enjoy!

It's common to hear conflicting messages from personal achievement experts or “gurus”? (5:15).

One authority will insist that you don't have to work hard, you just have to work smart. Another insists that balance is bogus or, you just have to follow your bliss. Yet, another claims life is a marathon not a sprint... and on it goes.

“Take away paradox from the thinker and you have a professor.” ~Kierkegaard  

Unfortunately, achieving your goals isn't so black and white. Often, the "real" answer is a mixture of conflicting advice. In a world of a thousand shades of grey, confusion and then paralysis can set in if we remain fixed.

In this episode, Nick and I review an essential "key" when it comes to navigating all of this conflicting information. (14:35).

"Never does nature say one thing and wisdom another." ~Juvenal

It turns out in your pursuit of personal growth and your goals its best to mirror the many visible traits in the natural world (dynamic, flexible, adaptive) for starters.

That mindset, combined with awareness, assures an effective and efficient path to personal growth and goal achievement.
