TICM 97 | Michael O'Neal | The Art Of Being A Great Interviewer  

Michael O'Neal's grammar school report cards always read:  Doesn't live up to his potential and Talks too much."  One of those pieces of feedback would come in handy, as he is now the founder and host of the award-winning and much acclaimed business and entertainment podcast, "The Solopreneur Hour with Michael O'Neal." The show, launched in August 2013, has already garnered more than 6 million downloads and monetized to multiple six-figures, features lively and highly engaging conversations between Michael and his various (and often much sought-after) guests, who share remarkable stories, advice and practical tips for an audience that badges itself as "proudly unemployable" and highly motivated to finally take charge of their own lucrative business pursuits.

In the interview, we breakdown his journey from digital nomad to world famous blogger.


We also deep dive into how businesses and entrepreneurs can leverage the power of blogs in TODAY’s economy. 

I asked him how relevant is blogging in 2016 because let’s be honest, we don’t need MORE content in our lives right? And his answer BLEW me away.


I think his answer would blow you away as well and help change your perspective in terms of how you imagine making a profit from your blog or having a blog in general.

Finding your one word and how by doing so, you simplify all your marketing and value system.

TICM 92 | Grant Cardone | Drop Into Your Inner Junkie And Be Obsessed  

Grant Cardone is an international sales expert, New York Times best-selling author, and radio show host of The Cardone Zone. He has founded three companies: Cardone Enterprises, Cardone Real Estate Holdings, and the Cardone Group. He has shared his sales and business expertise as a motivational speaker and author of five books: Sell to Survive; The Closers Survival Guide; If You're Not First, You're Last; The 10X Rule; and Sell or Be Sold and we are chatting about his new book be Obsessed or Be Average.

It’s funny actually, I introduced him as a multi-millionaire on the show and he got offended. You have to check out his reasoning for why he almost killed me for saying that.


In the interview, we cover exactly Grant thinks being obsessed is a healthy thing and what you can learn from junkies.


I know on the onset it would seem like they are both such negative terms, but once you hear how Grant reframes them for you, you might think differently.


Simply put, Grant is prolific. This guy pretty much has a new show that goes out every day.


I ask him about his thoughts on balance and going all in for his family and you will be shocked at his response.


He gives me tactical information about his priming process every morning for how he gets in the zone. He hasn’t given to any other interviews so you gotta listen to see what I mean.


This might not be my most popular episode as some of the things Grant says will inevitably piss you off.


Especially his thoughts on work life balance and an epidemic of individuals trying to heal themselves.


But that’s the point. IF you are a changemaker, if you want that level of success, part of the formula, no matter how you cut it, is the obsession with your art and what you do best in this world.


I don’t agree with everything he said. But then again, I millions of dollars was a lot before this interview.


According to Grant, you are at best in the middle class if you have a million dollars.


Changemakers, do me a favor. IF you enjoy this episode, let us know. Let Grant know, let me know. Don’t be passive in this process. I realize that everything we do needs to be coming from a place of feedback.

Tweet at us, let us know.

TICM 90 | Sean Stephenson | How To Cure All Insecurities  


Dr. Sean Stephenson was predicted not to survive at birth because of a rare bone disorder that stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile.

Despite his challenges, he took a stand for a quality of life that has inspired millions of people around the world including Sir Richard Branson, President Clinton, and his Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

Dr. Stephenson has appeared on everything from Oprah to Jimmy Kimmel, in addition to online videos with hundreds of millions of views. The Biography Channel did an hour feature on his life called “Three Foot Giant.”


In the interview, we cover why Sean believes the reasons behind people choose to suffer from their insecurities. Why do we have them anyways?


He literally spells how the cure to all insecurities so that was interesting for sure.


He gives you a tactic that is more beneficial than 95% of all counseling, wait till you see how simple it is.

I love the part of the interview where we deep dive into what sean calls his - win life works list vs. win life sucks list

And wait till you hear how simple of these steps are. And the best part, I couldn’t believe it myself, is that you don’t even have to do ALL of them, you only have done about 25%

Incredible right?

I hope this is getting you fired up.

We also touched on a topic that I have never talked about with a guest on this show which is head vs. heart.

You might have a guess into what that means right now, but I love how Sean not only gives us the proper definitions but also gives us ways to tap into “heart” He calls it a heart hack.


This is one of those episodes, you want to listen through at least twice to pick up on the whole level of awesomeness that was captured.

TICM 89 | 4TH Quarter Living (Pep Talk)

How will you use this time to be remembered? This is a pep talk diving deep into 3 lessons I have recently discovered from guests on my show. Hope this can be impactful for you as well. 


Mindset vs. Tactics (Changemaker Riff)  

How To Change Your Mindset About Life

It's NOT about the tactics and strategies. It's about your mindset.

Change your mindset, change your life.

TICM 88 | Alex Barker | Mastermind Groups, 66 Day Experiments And Selling Drugs (legally!)  

He built 3 businesses in 3 years

He paid off his house in less 3 years

He coached over 60 people to build successful businesses

Meet Alex Barker

He also happens to be the host of The 66-Day Experiement Podcast where he runs 66-day experiments and documents the results. 

He read a book a day in Season 1 of the 66 Day Experiment Podcast

He faced 66 daily days rejection in Season 2/.He created a business in 66 days in Season 3! 

He helped a “want-repreneur” couple launch a business in 66 days in Season 4

His mission is to help men and women find a disciplined approach to success in life and business.

Honestly, when I first met Alex, he told me he was selling drugs legally (as a pharmacist of course) and then he told me how he paid off his house from his online business and I was hooked! 

In this interview, we went deep into how the heck it felt for Alex to pay off his house and what specifically he discovered by going to mastermind groups.

I ask him what he discovered by getting rejected so often, I mean, getting rejected for any long period doesn’t sound fun at all.

We talk about why in all situations, not just sales, you want a hell yes or a hell no. Life loves it when you are specific and intention with your moves.

And I have had many conversations with him since this episode and the thing is, Alex is deceptively brilliant in his concepts and how we runs his practice.

I highly encourage you guys to listen to the whole episode and think about creating or joining a mastermind group with your peers and others that push you to that higher level.
