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]
