James NowlinWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Today we have a presentation that may, very well change your life.  James Nowlin is the special guests for this episode, and he is “the real deal,” in every respect.  He was a millionaire businessman long before he ever wrote his book, The Purposeful Millionaire, and even before he got paid to do any Keynote speeches.  At the age of 26 he was a young, first generation millennial success story.  He even walked away from a 6-figure law practice as a corporate attorney to start his own business. At the time, little did he know that the launch of his executive consulting firm, called Excel Global Partners, would coincide with one of the worst economic downturns in generations, which was The Great Recession.  Throughout the formative years of his business, James became tougher, wiser, and stronger, growing the company to become a great success.  That’s in spite of those daunting odds.  James shares the story of overcoming these odds in his book.  In this podcast, he’ll be chatting about how to go about getting your head on straight.  Please welcome James to the show…

Promise: Change Your Mindset

Thanks for having me on the show, first and foremost.  You should pay attention to this broadcast because you can be more, achieve more, and live more than you have ever imagined if you can get this one thing right in your life, and that’s your mindset.  That’s the 2-pound nugget on top of your head that really drives all of the success in your life.  For me, I had to change my mindset, in order to achieve at higher levels. [bctt tweet="My #1 hack is to get the heck out of bed in the morning." username="danielhall"] Having gone through a near-death accident at the age of 31… I had achieved really high levels of success.  I had the flashy car, I had the flashy friends, and I was traveling around the world, doing what I wanted to do, making as much money as I wanted to.  But, I was not achieving at my full potential.  That’s what I wanted to talk about today.  It’s all about getting that mindset in the right place, with the right disciplines and the right habits, on a daily basis, in order to achieve one’s maximum possible life.

So, a lot of people think of a brand as the visual representation, or how a brand actually articulates itself in the marketplace, such as how it shows up, like what color it is, what kind of logo it uses, and what kind of personality it uses.  A brand is so much more than that, and before we go on and I explain how to do it, you have to buy into the idea that: [bctt tweet="A brand is a strategic relationship that you have with your customers. " username="danielhall"] This is true whether you are a small business owner or you work for one of those big corporations, like those mentioned before.  Even if you are an individual publisher, content creator, or a writer, and also if you are just trying to market yourself to find a job, this is true for you as well.  You are a brand, whether you like it or not.

Matt MillerWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  This episode is meant to be a very special treat for you.  It’s something a bit different, but worth considering.  Today’s special guest is Matt Miller, who is a graduate of the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.  He was an air force pilot for nine years.  Post military, Matt worked in both medical and advertising fields, as a top performer.  His long-term desire was to start a business, probably a lot like you, and to build a lifestyle based on freedom and choice. During a conversation with a good friend, that actually led him into a 10-year business quest that has brought Matt’s franchising company to the cutting edge of both vending and school fundraising industries.  Starting with just a teeny-tiny seed of $100, he has built a “school spirit” vending machine company into a multi-million dollar vending business.

Promise: How to Build a Profitable Secondary Income Stream by Using Vending Machines

Thanks, first off, for having me on.  I really appreciate being here.  The big promise is: [bctt tweet="I want to show you how you can build a very profitable secondary income stream using vending machines as the vehicle" via="no"] Pat Flynn is a good friend of mine, and this started with a blog a few years ago which talked about creating information products online.  My challenge was, I have a very, very simple mindset, and the whole internet thing still just blows my mind, when I try to think about it.

 I needed to do something that would allow me to make money immediately, not on down the road.  So, I had a good buddy at church who mentioned gum ball machines, and I got to thinking about it, and I was like, “You know what?  It’s going to take a lot of gum balls for me to get where I want to go financially,” but those gum balls have over a 1,000% markup, so the margins are huge, and the machines do all the selling while you’re not there.  So, I started, literally, with a $36 used gum ball machine from a guy that I found on Ebay, across Houston, where we lived at the time.  That’s where and how I started this business.

I wrote a short eBook several years ago, called Live Your Dreams: The Top 10 Reasons Why You Need to Own a Vending Business.  It just shares a little bit of insight that most professionals have never even thought of in relation to vending.  We’ve set up a landing page specifically for you.  You can go to SSVBusiness.com/fastresults and download that for free.  At a minimum, you’ll learn a little more about just general vending.  If you want to talk about the franchise, we can do that too.  I hope, if nothing else, this gets you thinking about some other avenues that have been in front of all of us, all of our lives, but many of us, for whatever reason, have never considered.  This has changed my life and that of many of the other people that I work with today.

Christopher LochheadWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Christopher Lochhead is today’s special guest.  He’s the co-author of HarperCollins’ instant classic called Play Bigger: How Pirates, Dreamers, and Innovators Create and Dominate Markets.  He’s also the co-host of the Legends and Losers podcast.  On top of all of that, Christopher is a former three-time, public company CMO and entrepreneur.  As a matter of fact, Fast Company Magazine calls him, “The Human Exclamation Point”. The Marketing Journal also says that he is one of the best minds in marketing, and The Economist call him, “off-putting to some”.  At 18, he got thrown out of school, and with no other options, he started a company.  He wanted to add value to society, and now he’s been in business for over 30 years, even though he’s mostly retired these days.  He can quote most of The Big Lebowski, but he can’t even remember his wife’s telephone number.  However, he is an excellent speaker and a surf and ski bum, as well as a proud advisor to the non-profit 1 Life Fully Lived. [bctt tweet="The first thing I’d share is, if you are dyslexic, get a great coach." username="danielhall"]

Promise: Even if You are Dyslexic, You Can Write a Bestselling Book

Today we’re going to talk about how even a dyslexic can write a bestselling book. Well, listen, if you have something to contribute to the world, as we all know, books are transformative.  I started early, at 18, with no money, no education, and no experience, of course.  It was just me and my buddy, Jack.  When you start like that, you only have a couple of ways of learning.  That’s learning by doing, learning by seeking out mentors, and coaches, and friends that can help along the way, and then there’s learning by reading.

Reading was so hard for me, and still is, frankly.  There were a handful of books that I read between the ages of 18 and 25, or 26, and had those authors not written those books, you and I wouldn’t be having this conversation.  A few years back, some friends and family started to tell me and my co-authors, “Hey, you guys should really write some of this stuff down.”  We got convinced that we had something to contribute, so we decided to do the book, and that’s really how it all happened.
