  • How do the wealthiest of the wealthy think? And what can you learn from their mindset and apply to your own investment approach?

    Today’s guest, Steven Pesavento is a high performance coach and active real estate investor, who knows that mindset is at the center of what it takes to create lifestyle freedom.

    Steven entered the real estate market with zero experience and within the first two and a half years, his company bought 200+ houses in multiple states, renovated 100 properties, and was entrusted with more than $12 million of investor capital. Later, he was introduced to passive real estate investing and transitioned his business completely to syndications — in part because it was an opportunity to work with wealthy, lifestyle-driven investors.

    In today’s episode, I speak to Steven about his path into real estate investing and his overall approach to cultivating an investor mindset and creating passive income.

    Here's just some of the things we get into:

    How to think like the ultra-wealthy. The middle-class mindset that’s holding you back. Creating a clear vision around your investment goals. The many benefits of real estate syndications. The volatility and risks of stock market investing. How to build and scale a real estate business with no experience. Tax advantages to passive investing.

  • When you’re looking at the qualities it takes to be a great leader, it’s easy to get lost thinking it’s about what other people are doing for you. But it’s actually about how you can provide value to other people.

    To better understand the most important habits of highly effective leaders, I’m speaking to Brad Lomenick. Brad is a leadership consultant, founder of BLINC, host of the H3 Leadership podcast, and has worked alongside thought-leaders such as Jim Collins and Malcom Gladwell, Fortune 500 CEOs and start-up entrepreneurs.

Always Hustle—a practical road map for implementing and living out 20 transformational habits of a leader. Not only are humility, hunger, and hustle important, but Brad explains why they have to work in parallel in order to be effective.

    You’ll also learn what it takes to build strong relationships, how to leave a positive impression in the minds of the people you meet, what it was like working with John Maxwell, and why travel and connecting with people from different walks of life can make you a better leader.

  • Even the most driven of us are sometimes forced to swerve from our goals when life takes an unexpected turn. And although it might seem like the end of the world at the time, it could also be a major opportunity.

    Today’s podcast guest, Daniel Alonzo, started in financial services when he was 21 — and was a millionaire by 28 — but that wasn’t his original plan. His dreams of becoming a baseball player were dashed by an injury. Prior to that, he admits, he was a “bad kid,” whose pastimes included breaking into people’s cars, and stealing whatever was loose inside.

    Little did Daniel know that one of these incidents would set him on the path to success. Inside a stolen boombox was a cassette tape by Jack Canfield of “Chicken Soup For the Soul” fame. The tape was called “Self Esteem & Peak Performance,” and listening to it changed Daniel’s perspective on life. It helped him find focus and set goals.

    One of those goals was to retire by the age of 30, and he certainly could have done it. By that age, he was generating enough wealth through recruiting other people that he didn’t have to work another day of his life. Of course, he didn’t stop there!

    Today, Daniel is a coach, entrepreneur, media personality, podcaster, and author of the forthcoming book, Wealth on the Beach. He speaks in front of hundreds of thousands of people a year, teaching them how to create financial freedom and live a better life.

    In our conversation, Daniel tells me why building relationships is the secret to success, why he chose not to retire, and how he built a highly scalable business that allows him to live an extraordinary life on his terms.

  • When you have your mind set on achieving financial freedom, it’s easy to get impatient. But you can’t start generating wealth-building passive income overnight.

    Marco Santarelli is the CEO and founder of Norada Real Estate, and host of the Passive Real Estate Investing podcast. He bought his first property at 18, laying the foundation for what became his ticket to long-term wealth: residential real estate.

    Marco sums up the story of his journey to financial freedom with the word “tenacity.” It took decades for him to achieve his goals — but he needed that time to learn the lessons that ultimately helped him succeed.

    On this episode, you’ll learn from Marco’s fascinating path to becoming a nationwide real estate mogul. He shares advice for people getting started in the real estate industry, and explains why you should choose steady income over gambling on one big pay day.

  • By his 35th birthday Mike Michalowicz had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies.

    Confident that he had the formula to success, he became an angel investor. But to his surprise, what he thought he knew about building a successful company, was all wrong — which led to him losing his entire fortune.

    He lost his house, his cars, and even had to tell his 9 year old daughter that her horse riding lessons were no longer affordable.

    Driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies, he created the Profit First system — which is now used by hundreds of thousands of companies across the globe to drive real profit.

    Since starting over, Mike has built two new multi-million dollar ventures and has had 52 consecutive quarters of profit distributions for his businesses.

    In today’s episode, Mike explains how he lost everything betting on seemingly successful companies, the problem with growing a business too slow or too fast, and the simple formula that leads to a truly profitable and successful business!

  • Today, I’m speaking with JP Newman. JP is the Founder and CEO of Thrive, FP — a relationship based private equity firm focusing on real estate projects that make a real impact. Their focus is on generating profit for investors, while also improving tenant communities for the greater good.

    The way JP see’s it, when residents thrive, a property succeeds—and when a property succeeds, investors win.

    Few businesses strive to create prosperity, but JP’s company is proof that it’s possible to invest with purpose and create wealth and success where everyone succeeds.

    In our conversation, JP shares his story from quitting a lucrative career with SONY and his humble beginnings as an investor, to building a real estate empire focused on building community and doing social good.

  • From a very young age, we’re taught that in order to earn money, there has to be an exchange of time. To make more, you have to work more. The problem is, there’s only 24hrs in a day, so the earned income model completely limits how much money you can make.

    Sure, you can level up by making a higher hourly wage or working more hours, but beyond that, you’re stuck.

    As a result, people will settle for mediocrity. They end up building a lifestyle around what they get paid, rather than building their pay around the lifestyle that they truly want.

    It’s a trap! One that most people don’t know how to escape. Which leads me to today’s episode of the podcast…

    I’m speaking with Dr. David Phelps. David worked on the dental practice hamster wheel for over 20 years before being punched in the gut by his daughter’s life-threatening battle with leukemia, epilepsy, and a liver transplant — all before the age of 12.

    Fortunately, he had a Plan B! While still in dental school, David began investing in real estate by joint-venturing with his father on their first rental property. Three years later, they sold the property and David took his $25,000 capital gain share and leveraged it into 31 properties that produced $15,000 monthly net cash flow.

    Today, he’s a nationally recognized speaker on creating freedom, building businesses and investing in real estate. And his journey to create passive income and live for what matters most has inspired audiences across the nation.

    In our conversation, he makes it very clear why he believes the conventional idea of earned income and the “working to live” mindset is completely broken. You’ll hear us talk about all things real estate; how to buy properties that cash-flow on day one, the secret to getting seller financing, how to structure a deal on YOUR terms, and much more!

  • In this episode, I’m speaking with Khalil Rafati. Khalil is a high school dropout, convicted felon, and former heroin and crack addict who wound up homeless by the age of 33.

    With nowhere to go but up, he decided it was time to get sober — and that’s exactly what he did!

    Fast forward to today, Khalil is a bestselling author, speaker, and health and wellness entrepreneur. He is the founder and owner of SunLife Organics, a rapidly growing chain of health food cafés with locations in California, Texas, and Arizona.

    In our conversation, you’ll hear Khalil’s unbelievable journey from a homeless junkie, to learning to invest and becoming a millionaire! We talk about overcoming the poverty mindset, the power of surrender, and why billionaire John Paul Dejoria decided to invest $1 million into his business. That and a whole lot more!

  • There’s a common misconception that entrepreneurship has to come at a cost; that in order to make a company valuable, a trade-off must occur. If your business goes up, your personal life must come down — and there’s no other way!

    Well, today’s guest, Mac Lackey, would humbly disagree.

    As an entrepreneur for over 24 years, Mac has started, built and sold six companies — all of which have achieved 7 or 8 figure exits.

    What’s more impressive, is that he didn’t do it at the cost of spending less time on his family, his health, or living an exceptional life. As a devoted husband and proud father of two amazing girls, he found a way to do it all. He’s traveled the world, lived abroad, met his idols, had 50 yard line season tickets to his favorite team (FC Barcelona), and never missed a “Donuts with Dad” or a chance to carve a pumpkin with his kids.

    Not only has Mac avoided the entrepreneurial grind that we’re taught is inevitable, but he’s developed a repeatable process to start, scale, and sell companies successfully — and is now showing others how they can do the same.

    If you want to learn how to maximize the value of your business, build a solid exit strategy, and sell at a premium (without costly trade-offs), you won’t want to miss my conversation with Mac Lackey!

  • Money can’t buy you happiness. It may be cliché, but it’s true.

    I’ve met lots of people whose bank accounts are full, yet their lives are completely empty. And no matter what they acquire, it’s never enough and never satisfies.

    Don’t get me wrong… I’m not saying that money is bad or that it can’t help you build a life on your terms. BUT, if you’re struggling to find joy in your life, no amount of money, status, or material possessions will fill that void.

    That’s because true happiness, success, and freedom aren’t external, they come from within.

    To help us better understand this idea, I am speaking with Personal Freedom Coach, Preston Smiles. Preston has helped thousands of people around the world to understand & embrace their fears, so they can live the life of their dreams.

    He is the founder of The Bridge Experience — a workshop where he and his wife, Alexi take a holistic and innovative approach to personal development.

    He’s also the founder of Extreme Leadership, where he works in service of his mission to empower, inspire, and amplify multi-generational movements of radical love.

    In today’s conversation, Preston and I talk about his incredibly synchronistic experiences, how intuition can shape your reality (if you’re willing to listen), and the secret to creating a limitless life of joy & freedom.

  • When I started a family, I made a very intentional decision that I wasn’t going to trade time for money. I knew I wanted to show up at every game, recital, and important activity for my daughter, so I decided I was going to build a life that would give me and my family lifestyle freedom — and that’s exactly what I did!

    But, just because I created that freedom, it didn’t mean that I was automatically an amazing husband and father.

    In fact, for someone who’s always been a high achieving, hard working, competitive natured person, working on my business oftentimes felt more natural than working on my family.

    As entrepreneurs and investors, we’re so used to planning, setting, and achieving big goals for our businesses. We track progress, hit targets, hold meetings, and more...

    But why aren’t we taught to put that same level of energy into planning for our families — and shouldn't that be a top priority?

    With Father’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to talk more about the importance of relationships, family, and showing up for the people who matter the most. Afterall, what’s the point of creating freedom if you have nobody to spend that freedom with?

    There’s no one more suited for this special episode than my longtime friend, Jon Vroman. Jon is a husband, father and the Founder of Front Row Dads — a brotherhood created for “family men with businesses, not businessmen with families.”

    Jon originally started this group, not because he felt like he was crushing it as a Dad and a husband, but because he felt like he was getting crushed — and this group of likeminded men, rooted in trust and transparency, became the answer.

    In today’s conversation, Jon and I talk about the revelation he had in his thirties that helped him realign his priorities and truly put family first. You’ll learn all about the powerful work Front Row Dads is doing, and how to build a business around your life–not a life that revolves around your business.

    So, If you align with the idea of being a family man with a business, and not a businessman with a family, you definitely won’t want to miss this episode!

  • When I quit my job years ago, a lot of people thought I was crazy for doing it.

    But why? Was it because I had checked off all the "right" boxes; or because I was making good money and could make even more if I had stayed?

    From the moment we’re born, we’re told how to look, how to feel, and who to be. We’re taught to do things a certain way and to follow a certain path. But if we’re not careful, it can prevent us from living in alignment with our true values.

    For me, the goal was NOT to make more money, the goal was to buy my time back...

    So, quitting my job was the right decision. And of course, the money followed, but if I had listened to what everyone else had told me to do, I would never have achieved the lifestyle freedom that I have today. This is an important lesson that leads to today’s discussion with my friend Cal Callahan.

    Cal is the owner of Unlearn Ventures, which is an investment fund and incubator for forward-thinking projects. He’s also the host of The Great Unlearn — a podcast that empowers people to question everything they think they know about life.

    Whether it’s spirituality, health, relationships, or fitness, Cal’s superpower is to help others unpack and unlearn preconceived ideas and beliefs, so they can build a better, truer version of themselves.

    So, instead of discussing a specific asset class or investing strategies, today's episode is all about questioning our beliefs. Cal will challenge you to think differently, open your mind, find joy, and approach life with insatiable curiosity — a valuable asset for anyone who wants to live life on their terms, not someone else's!
