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.

What would happen for you if you had greater clarity, confidence, and “Charm”?

Would you get more business deals? Would you have greater opportunities to find that special someone? Would you be sought out, more successful, or even happier?

Today’s guest, Jordan Harbinger, has made it his life’s pursuit to show you how to use “charm” to attract more of what you want.

Today we dive into the strategies Jordan teaches including identifying the 4 main personality archetypes he’s seen in his studies and how each of them impacts a person’s quality of living, their relationships, and their career.

Intrigued? I think you’ll want to hear this one.

Here’s a simple, actionable thing you can do right now to improve the way others perceive you.

One of the intriguing things Jordan has discovered is that every person assesses every other person the moment they walk into the room. In nanoseconds their minds are evaluating, making judgments, and coming to conclusions about this person they haven’t even met yet. You might be disturbed by that fact, but you’d be better off learning how to use it to your advantage.

On this episode Jordan Harbinger shares some of his best tips regarding what you can do the moment you enter a room to get people to assess you more positively, think better of you, and make conclusions that are to your advantage rather than to your disadvantage. It’s only one of the many lessons Jordan shares with us on this episode. I invite you to listen, learn, and apply what Jordan will show you.

What could happen in your future if you could make your past work for you? It’s an incredible thought, isn’t it?

Today’s guest, Tony Grebmeier has lived that story and continues to live it day by day as he seeks to add blessings and benefit to the lives of those he meets. On this episode of Growth to Freedom, Tony shares his powerful story of personal failure, addiction and the road back to wholeness. It’s a story that traverses many highs and lows and ends with a man on fire to bring help to those who are ready to help themselves.

This is one of those inspiring stories that could turn someone’s life around, so make sure you not only listen to it yourself, but share it with others as well.

Everything I have is a byproduct of me admitting that I need help ~ Tony Grebmeier

Tony recognizes that his fast track to the bottom was precipitated by his unwillingness to allow others into his life. The way he says it is that he “spent a lifetime pushing people away.” But once he came to the realization that he needed the help of others and that many people had been placed into his life to BE that help, he began to make the long climb upward.

Now he is at a place few entrepreneurs reach: co-founder of an Inc. 500 company (Ship Offers) and fiercely focused on adding value and blessing to the lives of everyone he meets. Tony’s story is an example of what can happen when you begin connecting with people on deep levels and allowing those who care about you to speak truth into your life.

Be sure to pass this story along to others. As much as any conversation you’ve heard on Growth to Freedom, this one has the potential to truly change the lives of those who might need it most right now, and you can be an instrument of that change through sharing it. Thanks for caring.

  • Why it doesn’t matter where you’ve been but only where you’re going; [13:11]
  • The power of community and support in Tony’s recovery; [14:07]
  • How making amends for things has enabled a rebirth; [16:00]

Would you like to know the powerful question my coach asked me this week?

It was a question that changed the way I look at my life overall and the efforts I’m making in business. Here’s what he asked me…

“What are you REALLY committed to?”

Think about that word, commitment. It’s nothing more than deciding what you want and taking action that ensure you will get it. It’s that simple. His question made me realize that in some areas of my life I had not defined what I wanted clearly enough… and it’s time to take action!

The difference between a dream and a commitment is the action you take.

We’ve all had dreams at one time or another, and dreams are wonderful things to have. Dreams without action are nothing more than wishes that will never come true. It takes the commitment to take action to bring dreams into reality.

Your dreams are not going to fall into your lap from the sky. They aren’t going to just happen. You’ve got to make them happen by committing yourself to a course of action that will result in those dreams materializing in your life. And it all begins with a question: What are you REALLY committed to?

That question answered, will help you define the things that you believe are truly WORTH your commitment, time, effort, and energy. It’s the first step toward seeing great accomplishments happen in your life.

 

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

  • Dan’s welcome to you and the introduction to today’s show; [0:33]
  • A key question for you to ask yourself; [0:56]
  • How I realized that I was going to do something different; [3:46]
  • What are things you started but didn’t finish? [6:03]
  • My personal commitments: to serve as an example for you; [8:37]
  • What can you be committed to for the next 25 years? [10:33]
  • What’s the most productive thing you could be doing at this moment? [11:13]
  • What I’ve learned from trying to add value to people; [15:08]
  • How you can put the 1% approach into practice - for free; [18:23]
