This episode is a sneak peek inside of the Profit Paradigm Program. Guest Speaker Frank Bria has been a mentor and an asset to me during a potentially dangerous time in my career. And he was instrumental in developing the Alpha Mentorship program. Frank is here to talk about everything from scaling a business, to team building, productization of services, engineering a customer experience, and how to manage the value chain. He is an expert in growing and scaling businesses. He has experience in the education space, high-tech startups, consulting, and the building of entrepreneur programs.

 

In this episode, Frank explains how leaders can do things in a way that gives us clarity and momentum. Participants of the Profit Paradigm Program ask Frank for advice and counsel on how to find their niche, improve client retention, and how to complete a root cause analysis.

There comes a time when a leader needs to transform their consciousness and implement systems in order to facilitate and nurture business growth. But what does it take to shift your mindset from a creative, freethinking entrepreneur to become a seven-figure earning leader and CEO? What principles can you employ to transform your business into a self-sufficient, money-making machine?

 

Entrepreneurs and freelancers are people who are able to go out and make things happen. They seize the day, they are ambitious, and they hustle. But, an entrepreneur is not necessarily a CEO. A CEO is someone who can lead an organization — someone who can manage expectations and hold people accountable.

 

In this episode, I define the differences between an entrepreneur and a CEO and explain how those differences can inhibit you from scaling if you don’t recognize them first. I explain how to create powerful solutions to the possible roadblocks that can inhibit business success.

 

In order to uplevel your business income and get to the seven-figure mark, you must level up your thinking and start thinking like a CEO.

 

Key Points:

 

  • Mindset Shift #1 — You are not your business. [4:46]

 

  • Mindset Shift #2 — Time in does not equal money out. [8:58]

 

  • Mindset Shift #3 — Services don’t scale; products do. [13:09]

 

  • Mindset Shift #4 — Numbers Drive the Business. [17:47]

 

  • Mindset Shift #5 — Money is fuel. [20:44]

Unstoppable: Inner Power for Entrepreneurs

Jun 10, 2019

Our physical, mental, and emotional states have a direct impact on the success of our business. Why, then, are most of us are straddling the line between personal development and true business growth? Having a plan to alleviate our stressors is not enough. We must take action toward engaging in holistic practices and living in a way that is beneficial to our entire being.

 

A few years ago, it wasn’t as clear to me how deeply connected our personal sense of well-being and our businesses are. But, time and time again, any achievement I accomplished only felt good if I felt good about it. The healthier my body and mind were, the more satisfied I was with my decisions and the trajectory of my business.

 

There is a true parallel effect between who you are being on the inside and who you are being on the outside. You must do the internal work for your life to improve externally. This is a reality for creative entrepreneurs. During this episode, I share my experiences of how I find balance and tips on how you can integrate holistic practices into your life to ensure the success of your business.

 

Key Points:

 

  • Improve the leader, improve the business. [2:57]

 

  • What does it mean to work on yourself and how it affects your environment? [6:05]

 

  • The benefits leaders gain from consistent, hard physical work. [14:09]

 

  • Develop, explore, and heal yourself with plant medicines. [17:27]

These are the beliefs that hold, not just entrepreneurs, but all people back from accomplishing their goals. Attendees share examples of their own limiting beliefs and we work through how to overcome them. Remember you are the only one holding yourself back from being who you want to be.

This week’s episode focuses on embracing a money mindset and the wealth-building vehicles wealthy people use. This is the third podcast in my Wielding Power series. I share an overview of my ideas of the power of money as well as tactical and strategic wealth-building strategies.

This week’s episode is the second of my series on power. In it, I explain the three invisible structures that may be ruling your life without you even realizing it. These invisible structures are paradigms, pendulums, and programs. It’s important for you to understand these concepts so you can develop your own power, do the deep inner work, and master yourself. The idea behind invisible structures is that they are traps we never planned on falling into. They became part of our everyday lives and we didn't recognize them until we fell into them. I will explain some ideas I've been developing around mental and emotional power and how you too can become more mentally and emotionally powerful. Then, you can begin to see the traps learn to carefully extract yourself to can maintain your position, your power, and your strength. Influences in this world often encourage us to go with the flow, do what is expected of us without question, and to essentially conform. But all of us are meant to shine, grow, and progress.

 

Key Points:

 

  • Your weekly Alpha Activation. [:20]

 

  • Developing the power of the mind.  [5:04]

 

  • Entrepreneurs must develop the capability to harness the power of the mind. [9:15]

 

  • The three invisible structures are paradigm, pendulums, and programs. [10:59]

 

  • Three declarations to move beyond the universal human paradigm. [12:25]

 

  • Pendulums are invisible structures that deal with emotions. [18:05]

 

  • Three steps to build positive programs that empower you. [32:24]

 

  • Five tenets to developing mental and emotional power. [39:06]

This episode is the first of a mini-series I will be sharing with you about power. During these episodes, I explore the different nuances and concepts of power. These in-depth conversations will focus on physical power, emotional power, creative power, spiritual power, and finally, financial power. Together we will delve into the philosophy behind my upcoming book, Wielding Power. I'm sharing a bit with you about what I am considering putting in the book and giving you a baseline so you can create your own power.

 

Physical power is a gift, should you choose to accept it. The human body is a machine that if pushed to peak performance integrates with spiritual power, the divine. What possibilities will open up when you master peak physical power?

Welcome Back!

About a year and a half ago around the time my book, Rich20Something: Ditch Your Average Job, Start an Epic Business, and Score the Life You Want launched, I signed off from the Rich20Something Podcast. The book launch was a professional turning point for me. When you put your heart and soul into something and then it hits #11 on the New York Times bestseller list and it receives amazing reviews on Amazon, it can be a bit overwhelming. I was personally drained and needed a break. So, I took a little time off to start some new ventures, to create new programs, clarify my vision, and replenish my energy.

 

The guiding principles of this new podcast, The Daniel DiPiazza Show, will follow the core goals of my Alpha Mentorship program and the five pillars of personal evolution from my upcoming book, Wielding Power. I will be using this platform as a one-on-one conversation with you. I’ll be sharing insights to help all Millennial Entrepreneurs reach their highest mission.

 

  • 2017 to now — Reflecting on the past is the best way to gain your vision for the future. [1:27]

 

  • Visions: Alpha Mentorship Program, Ascent Mastermind, and Vanguard. [5:34]

 

  • Every learning opportunity is a successful venture. [11:00]

 

  • Unstoppable: Inner Power for Entrepreneurs on Creative Live and the Profit Paradigm Accelerator. [15:19]

 

  • I’m going on tour — Wielding Power: Psychedelic Talks for Leaders of the New Generation. [20:39]

 

  • An excerpt from my new book, Wielding Power: The Five Pillars of Accelerated Personal Evolution. [23:57]
