YBB027: Giovanni Marsico on the Archangels, Serendipity and his Big Break(s)

Your Big Break Podcast, March 17, 2016

Your Big Break Podcast welcomes ‘Curator of Superheroes’ and Founder of the Archangel Movement, Giovanni Marsico!

I’d like to start by thanking Giovanni for helping me breakthrough this year. In January, he gave me the opportunity to attend his flagship event the ‘Archangel Academy’ and it truly cracked me open in the best possible way. To be surrounded by a group of loving, kind, uber successful people is something that is transformative. Giovanni has an incredible gift of bringing together a tribe of people who truly want to help each other get their big breaks. Now, I don’t share this to brag that I’m part of a secret superhero society. It’s to firstly let you know that communities like this exist, and Gio is recruiting angels :-) As you’ll hear on the show, his story is so inspiring and truly speaks to the power of following your heart and success will follow.

Your Big Break Podcast, March 9, 2016

Your Big Break Podcast welcomes Best-Selling Author, Speaker and Mentor for Millennial Entrepreneurs, Alex Echols!

I had the privilege of meeting Alex in perhaps the coolest place in the gahdamn world. We met in Bali at an amazing event called Awesomenessfest (now Afest) a few years ago. We’ve kept in touch and I’ve watched some of the incredible big break moments he’s been creating over the years. On today’s episode we talk about how he left Hollywood (working on entertainment brands like Harry Potter, and The Dark Knight) to starting his own business, writing a kick-ass book and teaching millennials how to do the same. He also makes a radical declaration around the 27:15 mark about becoming a HayHouse author! I hope you love learning from Alex!

This is called the Imposter Complex, and as today’s podcast guest Tanya Geisler explains – this tends to pop up for high achieving people who have a strong level of integrity. The key is to notice when it pops up and have and having a plan to work through it. I’m so excited to share our conversation as I hope it helps you as you get to that next level!

YBB020: John Lee Dumas Shares His First Big Break and His New Book

Your Big Break Podcast, January 28, 2016

Your Big Break Podcast welcomes Creator of EOFire.com and TheFreedomJournal.com

Six months ago, I was freaking out. I had decided to pitch John Lee Dumas (host of Entrepreneur on Fire) to be on his daily podcast show. I did not truly feel ready, but I went for it and alas (and huzzah)… he said YES. John has interviewed +1200 people and has over +1,000,000 downloads of his podcast per month. He started small and built his brand over the last three years, and is now in a position to give entrepreneurs their big break. I’m so grateful/jazzed to be on episode 1083. So it is a supreme honour to share that the tables have turned, and I invited John to share his story on Your Big Break podcast…and this time, he said YES! Right now John is promoting his Kickstarter campaign for his new book TheFreedomJournal.com. If you’re interested in being given a tool to help you tackle the next 100 days with FOCUS, get yourself a copy right here.
