What do you want to be when you grow up the son of a tax attorney who invests business capital with entrepreneurs? This cast of characters that freely pursued their passions, unchained from an office desk was exactly the group Roland Frasier decided to emulate.  

Interestingly enough, Roland’s entrepreneurial path developed into a highly strategic buying, selling and scaling business. He started in real estate, moved on to accounting school and got his law degree all while building his assets. Turning down the opportunity to continue his law degree with a specialization in securities was one of the most prolific decisions he made in pursuit of his non-desk jockey childhood aspiration.

Need proof? Roland is a co-founder or principal of three of Inc. Magazine's current fastest growing companies and he’s responsible for creating, scaling or selling 24 different 7 to 9 figure businesses with adjusted sales ranging from $3 million to $337 million. 

While this episode will definitely result in a “Round 2” follow-up it’s so packed full, listen in as Joe and Matt learn about the growth idea scorecard system Roland and his partners at Digital Marketer use every day to determine the best business opportunities to pursue. If business systems are all the rage for you right now, be sure to check out this podcast episode with Matt and Joe and this one with AJ Roberts.

You give and help people out without any expectation of anything in return and it just always comes back 100 fold.”- Roland Frasier

This three-time New York Times best-selling author didn’t take the traditional route to the top of the stock market. In fact, Phil Town actually started his humble career as a portfolio manager and value-investing master as a Grand Canyon tour guide looking to escape the cold autumn nights inside his teepee in Flagstaff.

Phil definitely became a force to be reconned with, and fast. In five years flat, following four simple rules, he turned $1,000 into a cool $1.5 million.

From intern to author, and on to speaker, Phil spent the last decade teaching others the exact principles he uses so they can build their own wealth.

What is it about being a rambler that can make you an incredible success in life? While it may have taken Rob Nunnery 10 years and two pain-filled “breakdowns” to figure it out, he most certainly has an answer.  And, it may not be one that you expect from this former technology driven junkie.

 

In today’s episode, Rob explains how shutting off his money faucet at the beginning of 2017 was the proudest moment of his life. He also explains how the keys he found to freedom, peace and a happy life are all wrapped up into one word that to many of us seems like a long-lost art-presence.

From millionaire to decamillionaire to broke and back again in a whole new way and faster than ever - those are some of the credentials that may get you interested in listening to what our guest Marx Acosta-Rubio has to say.

Today’s podcast was filled to the max by Marx. We’re not exaggerating when we say we could have gone on for at least twice as long in just this episode. Who doesn’t appreciate a story of a fall from grace to a stunning Phoenix-like rebirth?  

With so much actionable mindset advice based on his own experience, it’s no wonder he’s got a bevy of GTD-ers lining up to take his 90-day challenge. As we listened to his business savvy around setting priorities, following the 80/20 principle and thriving in business, when Marx offered, we jumped at the chance to enroll in the challenge ourselves.

If you like some of what Marx has to say, be sure to check out these past episodes with James Schramko and Christy Whitman that really hit home about gaining clarity, taking aligned action and abundance.

You’re only one, two or three moves away from greatness or disaster.” - Marx Acosta-Rubio

Today Joe and Matt decided to do a special duet for you. They do this when they have a short time block in between recording all their podcasts for the month on their dedicated production day.

What would you expect these two to talk about except their recent experience? They share great big nuggets of wisdom they’ve discovered since shifting their entire business model at the beginning of 2018. That’s when they stopped selling and started giving, and they’re not kidding when they say that. Basically, their current business model involves giving away their “secret sauce” about marketing. And yes, they still do make money.

Want to know how that’s been working out for them? Just listen in to hear what’s literally been one of the best business decisions they’ve made in a very long time. Think FOMO (fear of missing out) meets, “You can’t hire us, we’re not for sale,” and what anybody totally enraptured by their methods would want to automatically do.

Dive deeper into some of the relevant topics Joe and Matt discussed in this episode including the Evergreen Profits business model transition and how to make money without selling.

Since both Joe and Matt had some great advice, today you get two quotes.

“You’re sitting on way more value than you think you are, and I think the majority of people hold it way to tight” - Joe Fier

“...The more we share for free, the more we just completely are an open book and are completely transparent about our strategies, the more people are fricking waving money at us going, I want to pay you. How do I pay you more money?” - Matt Wolfe

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • Knock knock. Who’s there? Interrupting Joe.
  • Solo, duet? It’s all just semantics, right?
