Growth to Freedom™ - Transform Your Life, Business, and Relationships with Clarity, Confidence, and Direction

Freedom only happens when you are driven by purpose. As one of my friends Joe Polish (of Genius Network) says: “… if you want a breakthrough, you’ve got to break something…” The Growth to Freedom™ Show helps you transform your life in business and in relationships. It’s a fresh mix of strategy, resources, and entertainment that guides you to create the personal and business breakthroughs you need. Your success and freedom will only grow to the extent you do, and the The Growth to Freedom™ Show will help you find clarity, confidence, and direction. Two weeks after my son was born in 2007, I found myself in a hospital for four days with a serious heart problem. The fact is, I had let my health go to the extent that my body gave out. It was a major wakeup call. That experience opened a new door of awareness for me. I came to realize that if I wanted something different, I needed to do something different. If I wanted something better, I needed to do it better. We’re living at one of the most exciting times in history and I believe you can have freedom on your terms. You can have it all, if you’re willing to take the necessary steps. It’s not easy. I’ve certainly made my share of mistakes and I want to help you avoid those on your own journey. This show was born as part of my process and was inspired by Joe Polish, Genius Network, and many mentors I’m also fortunate to call friends. It doesn’t matter what your background is or where you’ve been: It only matters that you want to grow.Whatever your definition of success, I will challenge, guide, and connect you to some of the best leaders and experts in the world today. Now is your time - you deserve it! The catalyst for greatness is inside of you, and it starts now with Growth to Freedom! Insights and strategy from experts like - T Harv Eker, Craig Ballantyne, Dan Sullivan, Strategic Coach, Genius Network Joe Polish, and more (what about that?) - these aren’t the experts I have interviewed, however excerpts from their ideas.

Do you believe that you have a story to tell or a message to deliver to the world? Even more importantly, do you believe that you can get that message out as a bestselling book?

It’s possible. Not only is it possible, today I’m going to introduce you to two people who can show you the exact way you can make it happen.

My 4 guests on this episode are people I dearly love and care about - My two children, Kira and Kyler, and Rick and Liz Thompson, co-founders of Done For You Solutions and Next Best Sellers. That may sound like an unusual combination of people to have on one show, but if you take the time to listen it will make perfect sense to you because this edition of Growth to Freedom is not only about getting a bestselling Amazon book published, it’s also about balancing your business and entrepreneurial drive with the need for your family to be healthy and strong.

Ric and Liz are experienced entrepreneurs and run a company that enables people just like you to get their story into book form and onto the Amazon bestseller charts. They’ve done it with over 100 books so far, and can do it with yours. Ric and Liz are also dedicated to their family and are very skilled at living out the entrepreneurial life and lifestyle with their family in tow. They are the first to admit that there are struggles and challenges when it comes to mixing entrepreneurism and family life, but they’ve been able to do it so far with great success and are eager to share that not only should that be the case for every entrepreneur, but that it CAN happen as well.

In this conversation I chat with my kids about what it’s like to live in my home, which as you can imagine, is very much impacted by the world of business and entrepreneurism, and I ask Ric and Liz to pipe in with their insights regarding the struggles involved in doing both business and family as well. My kids are able to share their dreams for the future and Liz and Ric are able to share their great advice about communication, understanding, patience, and hard work that go into making the home/business balance a reality that actually works.

And mixed in with all of that is Ric and Liz’ advice about how you can get the ideas and experience that is inside of you, out, and onto the pages of a book, and get it to the top of the Amazon bestseller list. That may sound like a pipe dream, or like something you’re not skilled enough to do, but I think by the end of this conversation, you’ll be a believer in what Ric and Liz can do for you, just like I am.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn in this show:

  • [0:33] Dan’s introduction to today’s show and guests: Kyler and Kira, his children - AND Ric and Liz Thompson, founders of Done For You Solutions!
  • [3:13] Who are Ric and Liz Thompson?

Where are you today compared to where you were 5 years ago?

What would you say if I could GUARANTEE you 10X the results over the next 5 years?

In today’s episode of Growth to Freedom I’m on a solo rant of sorts. Why am I ranting? Because I’m lovingly, with all the passion I can muster, trying to communicate some very important concepts that could literally TRANSFORM your life. Honestly, these things are that important. If you could just grasp them, embrace them, and apply them to your life, you’d see some unbelievable changes over the next months and years of your life

I want you to get this. I want you to see the transformative effects of the things I’m talking about today. And here’s the amazing thing about them…

Getting 10X growth is not as hard as you’ve been led to believe.

People seem to think that in order to truly grow you’ve got to get some kind of expensive, specialized education or go to some high dollar seminar taught by a guru. But I’m here to tell you that it’s not the case. In fact, on this episode I’m going to tell you exactly, step by step, how you can integrate a few, very small habits into your life that will make a compounding difference in you as a person, and your business and relationships as a result.

There are 5 basic skills you need - and I’m going to tell you what they are in this episode.

But I’m going to go in depth on a few of them to show you in practical terms what I mean. Here they are:

One question to help you assess and recalibrate your direction and focus. My 10X10X10 morning ritual for you to adapt and use. Beyond those two things, I’m also giving you two hands-on tools that you can use to get yourself going. I originally created these tools for myself, so that I could begin implementing these things in my own life, but now I see that was just a step in the process that allows me to provide them for you.

In the resources section of this page you can find my Monday Focus Maximizer and my Friday Focus Maximizer. Listen to the episode to hear what they are then download them and start using them.

This is a very serious episode because it’s about making the future better than the past, it’s about seeing changes happen in yourself for the sake of your family, your business, and seriously - for the sake of the world around you.

If you want 10X results in your life this episode gives you the place to begin.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll learn on this episode:

  • [0:33] Dan’s introduction to today’s special show: 10X growth.
  • [1:35] 5 skills you need to achieve mastery in business or personal life.
  • [2:27] The outcome of not being able to recruit others into what you want.
  • [3:39] The one key thing to making 10X improvement possible.
  • [6:10] Using one important question to help you assess and improve.
  • [10:54] Dan’s habits and rituals to become a peak performer.
  • [14:14] The ritual of starting your day: Dan’s pattern for you to use.
  • [17:54] What is keeping you from doing that ritual?
  • [21:12] Two tools you can use to maximize your questions.
  • [23:00] The best definition of “selling” Dan has ever heard.
  • [24:38] Why there’s no correlation between being good and getting paid. [28:06] What is in the way of you and your better future?
  • [29:51] Get Dan’s special gift package: 602-246-3389 or visit the website - www.GrowthToFreedom.com/Mastery 
  • [31:04] Where are you today compared to 5 years ago, and how would applying these principles make your answer different over the next 5 years?

Dec 14, 2015

Have you ever noticed that some people seem to struggle with money – day to day, stressed over bills, paycheck to paycheck…while others seem to have the money game figured out?

What is it that separates the two people?

Is it that they were smarter, had a better upbringing or born under a lucky star?

The answers just might shock you.

Whatever your dreams, todays guest is uniquely qualified to show you how to win the money game.

T Harv Eker is uniquely qualified to show you how to win the money game. Harv went from zero to millionaire in less than 3 years, lost his fortune, and then realized that his own money mindset was flawed. He did the work of understanding and reprogramming his own thinking surrounding money to enable him to regain his fortune, build on it, and keep it.

Harv made his discoveries about his own faulty beliefs about money through his own struggles. He realized that his "inner-money thermostat" was set for a specific amount of financial success, and that everyone else had a financial set point too.

His most profound discovery was that this money blueprint could be changed. During his years of struggle, Harv made himself a promise: should he ever get rich, he would help others do the same. He’s kept that promise, helping over 1.5 million people move closer to the goal of financial freedom.

Everyone has a specific way, a specific blueprint to the way that they think about money. That means you do too.

If you don’t know what yours is, you need to watch and listen to this episode.

And if you do, I guarantee you that Harv will share something in our conversation that will make you rethink your mindset and make adjustments so that you can reach even higher levels of success.

On this episode Harv and I talk about his story, why it’s necessary to undo false beliefs surrounding money, the two kinds of habits that impact people every day, the fundamental differences between rich people and poor people (and it’s not the money), and why your real job is to play a much bigger game, no matter what you do for a living.

This is a loaded episode and I’m glad you’re here.

 

Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll discover on this show:

  • [0:31] Dan’s welcome and introduction to this episode with guest T. Harv Eker!
  • [2:37] The things that motivated T. Harv to strive toward being a millionaire.
  • [4:04] 14 jobs and 12 businesses, and lots of failure before he renovated the way he thought about money.
  • [6:39] What is a millionaire mind?
  • [8:22] How to reset your money mindset in short order.
  • [13:42] Why people are either exactly LIKE their parents or exactly OPPOSITE their parents when it comes to money.
  • [17:26] The absolute necessity of undoing the false beliefs we have surrounding money.
  • [20:38] Two kinds of habits and how they impact you every day.
  • [22:20] What does it mean that attitude determines success more than anything?
  • [24:40] Who would you be at your very best?
  • [25:21] Rich people play the money game to win.
  • [28:13] Why your job is to play much bigger, no matter what you’re doing.
  • [31:30] The good reasons to become rich.
  • [34:09] Harv’s final words of advice.
  • [35:18] Are you playing the big game or the small game? Are you on mission?
  • [37:10] Your action blueprint.

What would happen in your life if you could connect in a genuine way with the high profile people in your niche or industry?

And, what would be the result if you were able to make those kinds of meaningful connections regularly?

Today’s show is going to blow you away simply because my guest today is going to tell us exactly - yes, EXACTLY how we can get a leg up on the rest of the competition in doing those very things.

Steve Sims is the visionary founder of Bluefish: the world’s first luxury concierge that delivers the highest level of personalized travel, transportation, and cutting-edge entertainment services to corporate executives, celebrities, professional athletes. Do you have a dream that you’d like to see fulfilled? Anything from having dinner with Donald Trump or taking a trip to outer space? Steve and his team are the ones who can pull it off for you (if you’ve got the cash to properly motivate them).

I wanted to have Steve on the show for a selfish reason, really…

I wanted him to tell me, in plain and practical terms, how I can regularly and genuinely make connections with people who matter in the world and in my industry. He’s a pro at what Joe Polish calls: Genius Networking and I knew he would have some great things to say.

And man… did Steve deliver!

This episode is packed with incredible insights from a man who doesn’t just teach this stuff, he does it. His brain overflows with ideas as we talk, so I hope you set aside the time to listen to this conversation, take notes, and then listen to it again.

Steve Sims will give you more clarity and capabilities to reach greater levels of success by making lasting, thoughtful connections with the people who matter. But he’s a family man too, so he’s got some very practical things to share about how to make marriage and family time work too!

Buckle up. “Ugly Sims” is on the show!

 

Here’s a peek into what you’ll learn in this show:

  • [0:31] Dan’s introduction of this episode and its guest: Steve Simms
  • [2:32] Steve’s humble beginnings and who he is today.
  • [4:09] How Steve has been able to turn setbacks into learning experiences.
  • [7:28] Steve’s mindset of living life to the fullest and attracting the right people into his life.
  • [15:02] How Steve Sims advises people to learn how to meet high profile people.
  • [17:56] Things NOT to do if you want to meet high profile people.
  • [21:28] Why is the website called “www.UglySims.com”?
  • [24:40] Why thoughtful beats expensive, every time.
  • [28:21] What Steve’s up to now and how you can reach Steve Sims.
  • [29:37] The things Steve wants people to start doing and what he wants or himself.
  • [31:10] The rituals and practices Steve teaches his kids regularly.
  • [33:35] Steve’s best advice for having a marriage that lasts.
