Imagine the euphoria of learning that an investor is willing to bet $20 million on your company. Then imagine the stress that sets in after you realized what you’ve just signed up for. After all, that investor is expecting you to quadruple their money. My guest on this episode has been there. He not only lived to tell the tale, but he also wrote a book about it. Rand Fishkin is the author of Lost and Founder, which charts to rise on his multimillion-dollar company Moz and his rocky dealings with…

Two books have had a profound impact on my life: Rich Dad Poor Dad and Outwitting the Devil. There are more than that, but these two are particularly pertinent to this episode. The authors of these two books, Robert Kiyosaki and Napoleon Hill respectively, have become household names but someone else had a hand in both books and she doesn't get the limelight. Her name is Sharon Lechter and she's our guest in this episode number 165. Sharon is an entrepreneur, author, philanthropist, international speaker and licensed CPA. She's regarded…

It was back in the mid ‘90s where I had first heard of the marketing legend, Jay Abraham. I never would have imagined for my life that I would eventually count Jay as a friend and yet here we are. I’m so grateful that he has joined me on this episode of Get Yourself Optimized. He’s been on Marketing Speak twice. Once where I interviewed him and once where he interviewed me about SEO. Those are definitely great episodes you should definitely check out. Jay is known as the $21.7…

Anytime I can sit down and learn from someone who has built up a business from nothing and then sold it for a number well into the eight figures, I snap up that opportunity. Our guest in this episode number 156 isn’t just successful in business. She’s also a world-changer. I’m so excited to invite on to the show Elisa Camahort Page, known as the Co-Founder and COO of scrappy-startup-turned-global women’s media company, BlogHer Inc. Elisa’s debut book on everyday activism, Road Map for Revolutionaries, is coming out. She also consults…

It’s hard enough to build a business without funding or training. Imagine how much harder it would be if you truly started from nothing and were homeless. Now, go one step further and imagine stepping away from the business that you created in those unlikely circumstances to follow your true passion: creating an innovative nonprofit in the education field. This may sound like something out of a novel, but for today’s guest, it’s his true life story. "Nobody wants to invest in a part-time charity, You have to go all…

For many of us, it’s hard to let go of control of many aspects of our business. Whether it’s our email inbox or our blog posts, it’s never easy to relinquish control. Imagine how much easier life would be, though, if you knew you could go on sabbatical for six months and your business wouldn’t miss a beat. When you have the right team of virtual assistants, your business can operate with minimal input from you. This means you can focus on the things that you actually need to do…

Do you treat a rented apartment the same way you would treat your own home? Do you treat a rented car as well as you treat your own car? If you’re like most people, the honest answer is probably “no.” Similarly, most people who figuratively rent their jobs don’t treat them with the same passion or the same investment as they would if they felt they owned their jobs. This doesn’t necessarily mean having financial ownership of the job; emotional ownership is just as important. Tune into this episode with…

Lots of people focus on one area of life at a time. They might try to create wealth, lose weight, get into shape, or create and maintain relationships . You don’t achieve success by chasing after one or two things with intent. Instead, true success comes from creating balance across different areas of your life. Regardless of your professional role or personal life, it’s likely that you’re suffering from a lack of balance. If you’re ready to achieve that balance, this is the episode for you! My guest, Arman Sadeghi,…

There is nothing more innocuous than trying to increase your own fortune. In a truly open, transparent market, there’s no way to make money without benefiting someone else. In other words, money is only created when two humans please one another. If you want financial abundance, the trick isn’t to want money itself. You need to create an environment in which you enter into mutually beneficial situations. "You need to understand the nature of money to bring it into your life." Rabbi Daniel Lapin Rabbi Daniel Lapin is here to…

"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man,” George Bernard Shaw wrote. Success often requires that you do something unreasonable. You have to make a brazen claim that you’re going to do something out of the ordinary, even when the world pushes back.. Either you’ll fail miserably, or you’ll experience a wealth of success. Take the next step to becoming an unreasonable and successful person by tuning into this extraordinary…
