(GYSS #66): Living Differently & Building Community with Matt Wilson
“Being normal is the enemy and being fine sucks.”
Matt Wilson is the Adventurer in Residence at Under30Experiences and Co-founder at Under30CEO. This is his second time on the show and he’s since started a podcast, the Live Different Podcast…where he helps entrepreneurs grow their business, get in better shape, perform at their peak and have more fun.
I wanted to get Matt on the show to talk about living differently, building community and his new podcast, the Live Different Podcast.
(GYSS #65): Matthew Williams – Co-Founder of BrainGain, How To Live Overseas
Matthew Williams has worked, lived, and traveled overseas for the last 7 years. He’s now helping others have the same awesome experiences by placing them in career relevant positions in emerging economies through his business, BrainGain.
I wanted to get Matthew on the show because of his vast knowledge around working overseas. We discuss his love for travel, how to support yourself to live overseas (so you can do more than just vacation) and his new startup BrainGain.
(GYSS #64): Jess Manuszak – Trusting Your Gut, Copywriting & Telling Your Story
“Failure is not the end of the world, it’s just a sign that you’re doing shit worth doing.”
Jess Manuszak is the founder of The Brazen Bible blog and CEO of Verve & Vigour Creative Branding Agency. She approaches life much in the same way she approaches any and every game of Monopoly: with borderline inappropriate amounts of determination and a wad of fake paper money shoved down the front of her pants.
I wanted to get Jess on the show because she is GREAT with copywriting. We discuss her humble beginnings, copywriting and how to be happy being yourself.
(GYSS #63): Geoff Woods – Find & Successfully Connect With Mentors
“80% of everything you need is already within your circle of influence.”
Geoff Woods is the host of The Mentee podcast, and is a medical device salesman by day, and an entrepreneur by night. He has set out on a mission to surround himself with high level CEOs and entrepreneurs and is a now being mentored by many of these heavy hitters. Geoff has been featured in Entrepreneur.com and is considered the authority on building meaningful relationships with high level influencers and mentors.
I wanted to get Geoff on the show because he is THE expert when it comes to mentors. We discuss his journey getting started as an entrepreneur and he gives step-by-step instructions on how to find, attract and reach out to mentors.
(GYSS #62): Founders of Idea Lemon – Is Quitting Essential For Success?
“If you don’t say yes to everything at some point, then you don’t figure out what to say no to.”
Rajiv Nathan and Martin McGovern are the founders of Idea Lemon, where they help young entrepreneurs and wantrapreneurs to achieve more freedom, creativity, control over their schedule, free time, “me” time, opportunities, comfort and more travel.
I wanted to get these two on the show to continue our previous conversation around knowing whether you’ve “made it” when I was on their podcast. We talked about success and defining it for yourself. Our topic of conversation today: Is quitting essential for success? I recorded this more Idea Lemon style and it’s a much more conversational episode vs. an interview.
