The GenY Success Show (Episode 6): Brandon Epstein – Founder of Entrepreneur Fitness, How To Optimize Health & Fitness For Busy Entrepreneurs

7 Amazing Sleep Hacks For A Better Night’s Sleep
Let me talk about why I decided to write an article on sleep.
I’m currently 25 years old. All of my life, I’ve never had challenges with energy or focus. In high school, I averaged about 5 hours of sleep each night…no problem. In college, it was about 6 hours per night.
It wasn’t until I turned 25 this past February that I started to notice that I couldn’t hold my focus for a 12 hour workday anymore. 8 hours was starting to get a little tough. I could still hammer out those hours, but it wasn’t productive for me.
I needed to take naps in the middle of the day in order to sustain my output. I’ve read many articles about the benefit of napping, but it just didn’t seem logical that I couldn’t get through a day without being dog assed tired.
I examined my diet, personal productivity and sleep quality. Fixing all of those areas ended up having a great effect on the quality of my day, but the one that made the biggest impact for me (based on my tracking) was the changes I made to increase the quality of my sleep.
The GenY Success Show (Episode 5): Michael Bishop – What It Was Like Getting To Work With Nike, Creating Viral YouTube Videos
Unfortunately, Nike will not allow us to air this episode! If you’d like me to record another interview with Michael, let me know in the comments below.
Michael is a super funny guy. I really enjoyed interviewing him. He’s pretty humble, so it took a little bit of work to get some things out of him, but there’s a lot of good takeaways here. He works for Team Epiphany right now, and manages several social media handles for Nike.
He has a video on YouTube called I Love My Ducks, which has over 2 million views on YouTube. He talks about getting hired by Nike, making viral YouTube videos and being a Senior Writer for a large social media agency.
The GenY Success Show (Episode 4): Josh Bauerle – Benefits Of Doing Free Work, The Financial Ins & Outs Of Business
Josh, like many other millennials, has had a lot of second thoughts on what he wanted to do in his career. He grew up in a family of entrepreneurs, but wanted to take a different route and work in law enforcement. After realizing the field was nothing like the TV shows, Josh quickly grew an interest in accounting.
He spent a few years freelancing and working with other CPA’s before starting his own accounting firm, CPA on Fire. Josh does the monthly income reports for John Lee Dumas at Entrepreneur on Fire and he does my taxes as well! This is a great episode if you have any questions about the financial aspects of starting a business, how business taxes work and/or how to save the most money in taxes.
