A Recipe for Success with Chef Charles Carroll

November 6, 2017
00:0000:00

THE RECIPE, by Olympic gold-medalist Chef Charles Carroll and New York Times bestselling author John David Mann, is a tale of heartbreak and redemption, a meditation on great food and secrets of the kitchen, and a life manual, all wrapped together into one compelling, un-put-downable story.

Former world heavyweight champion George Foreman has declared it “An instant classic.” Michael Port, the television actor and bestselling author of The Think Big Manifesto, calls it, “A blueprint for transcending limitations and living a big life” and adds, “The Recipe will speak directly to your heart and help you find your way.” My guest today is the book’s coauthor, Chef Charles Carroll, executive chef of the prestigious River Oaks Country Club in Houston, Texas. Chef Carroll has a unique perspective on success, greatness, and what it takes to create amazing teams. He took his first Culinary Olympics gold medal — the first of many — at age 24 and has participated in eight different Olympics over three decades. As executive chef at one of the highest-rated country clubs in the nation, he manages and mentors a team of seventy-five, in six kitchens and three restaurants, putting out eighty to a hundred banquet functions per week — and maintains an unshakable sense of team morale and family spirit in the process.

He travels the country giving inspirational talks to young people on the Ingredients of Greatness. He just returned from logging a quarter million miles in his two-year stint as president of the World Association of Chefs Societies. And in his spare time, he’s written a book — a “culinary parable,” he calls it — with The Go-Giver coauthor John David Mann. How does he do it all? And more importantly, why does he do it? We’ll find out today.

Money is what drives business, so why do so many of us ignore finances until we “have to” deal with them. Well, my next guest Tracie Fobes AKA the “Penny Pinchin Mom” has some really valuable lessons we can learn about dealing with money in business and in life.

Give Every Penny A Job

Simple Right, Actually the way Tracie breaks it down it really is simple. Like for example “Give every penny a job, and tell it what it’s going to do that month. What an amazingly simple concept but it’s powerful. Of course, that’s just the beginning of her story.

Stop, Don’t Run Facebook Ads with Marya Jan EP88

May 13, 2017

How much are you losing on Facebook ads?  Have you ever thought Facebook ads work for some but you have to take a course or spend thousands of dollars to get any scalable result?  My guest Marya Jan is going to tell you something I’m sure you’ve never heard before.

She doesn’t want you to start running Facebook Ads!

That’s right Mara thinks Before you invest a single dollar in a Facebook ad, you need to have a strategy in place from the start in order to get results.  Just like with anything you’re attempting to accomplish you have to have a roadmap to get there.  We covered a ton of information in this conversation and one of the many things I learned about some of the mistakes I’ve made is to send traffic to a cold page.

Clarity Through Coaching with Petra Foster EP87

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

Coaching is one of the fastest growing professions on the planet right now. In coaching, you can really embrace your genius and show up in a big way for your clients. However, something really bothered me about coaching I wanted Petra, my next guest, to sort out for me.

Why are so many coaches broke? Don't worry we get to that.

Petra Foster is known as client enrollment strategist. She helps coaches understand how to build an effective business that can not only bill multiple thousand dollars per month but to also provide a massive amount of value to their clients.

The Problem Starts With Your Fee Structure

Initially, coaches go into the business to help people, whether it’s in the area of health, business, lifestyle, etc.   The problem is they don't build a fee structure that's scaleable based on the amount of value they're delivering, so it's no surprise they aren't able to earn enough to stay in business.

Limiting beliefs around money and feeling guilty when they do charge higher dollar amounts.  Because they are helping people, they believe they can’t charge them.  Due to this, they will charge per hour and tend to stick to this not realizing that there are people out there who are willing and able to invest in themselves in a higher dollar amount. Because they do not have a system to change this, they remain broke.

Split-Testing Made Easy with Chris Dayley EP85

Did you know that 61% of Adwords and Facebook Ads Fail to produce a single conversion? According to Chris Dayley VP of Testing and Optimization at Disruptive Advertising.

One of the most challenging problems business owners, bloggers and podcasters for that matter have is getting conversions from email, lead capture pages and of course ads. Even if you don't directly sell a product or service a successful outcome from an effort made is key.
