The Hustle & Flowchart Podcast

Every week we have conversations with the most successful people in our network. We learn their stories and the lessons learned before diving in and getting the real "meat." Every single show has actionable takeaways that listeners can implement in their own life or business. We focus on topics around traffic, brand awareness, and business systematization but have been known to go pretty "off script" from time to time to discuss a wide variety of topics to help people improve their lives.

We’re back again, and on this episode it’s just us as we dive into another round of our  Therapy Sessions. First off, we review how we are continuing to be on the forefront of all that is in the podcasting world and how podcasting continues to be a content machine which can lead to so many monetization models such as newsletters, high ticket offers, sponsorships and continuity offers. 

Next, we are not holding back as we talk about how we both have struggled with stress and anxiety in the past, what we have done and are doing now to combat that, leaving us to feel much better current day.  We feel that this is an issue that is not always discussed in today’s world, but really needs to be and we look into our personal lives a little more to talk about the things that all of us, as entrepreneurs deal with along with the practices that have made a big difference in our lives, in our relationships, health and overall well-being. Remember - as entrepreneurs, you are not alone.

When you’re done, check out the episodes we did with with Travis Ketchum and Sam Khorramian where we delve into this important topic even more.

Now we have podcasts and Google is indexing not only the show notes / the blog post of that show but they are actually indexing podcasts now. There’s this interesting wave now that.” - Joe Fier

“Isn’t it funny how much better business works when you build things people want instead of what you think they want.” - Matt Wolfe

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How to deal with struggles and hardships
  • Why we are in the barrel of podcasting now and how to catch that wave
  • Matt’s heartfelt Facebook post and the most surprising outcome about it
  • Why podcasting is not going away and how you can monetize it

On October 15th, 2002, Angelo Sisco was involved in a hit and run motorcycle accident that changed his life forever. In an instant, he went from being a 20-year-old entrepreneur to someone fighting to save his leg and his way of life.

After 8 surgeries, two months in a hospital bed, 5 months of daily rehab, Angelo fell into a deep depression.

In 2009 he discovered CrossFit and everything changed once again. He had a new focus and a new purpose in life. After he lost close to 100 pounds, he opened up his own Crossfit gym in 2010, helping others to be the best version of themselves. 

In 2018 Angelo launched Alpha Hippie, a movement to help men find their purpose and grow. He does through his podcast, talks, and his course Masculine Mastery.

Angelo Sisco then teamed up with his mentor Jason Leydon in 2018 to create Conquer. 

Angelo has an amazing, colorful story. Listen as we break down his mission and how he transitioned into this character he wanted to be. He walks us through many ways that you can do the same if you are stuck in your own life and discusses the four main barriers in life that hold us back and ways to overcome them. After you listen, be sure to check out our other episodes with Brian Bradley and Dr. Steve Ruden, for more golden nuggets of wisdom in regards to business and health.

“The money helps because it’s your access to education to figure out how to be happy and figure out how to lose weight. People that are in positions they don’t want to be, it’s not because they want to be in those positions per se, it’s because they don’t have the education and awareness to get out of those situations.” - Angelo Sisco

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How Angelo dealt having a father in jail while growing up and how this affected him later in life
  • How Angelo lost close to 100 pounds in under a year’s time
  • What happened to make Angelo realize that his business was not growing as fast as he would like, and the changes that turned it around

We love Neil Patel and basically grew up in our marketing, learning from him and Quick Sprout. While this episode is shorter than our usual ones, there is definitely some gold in here as always, as we discuss the benefits of UberSuggest, how QuickSprout got started as well as Neil’s excellent work ethic and tenacity in distributing so much content on his own.

You’ll also hear how, even though he feels he has a few haters (which means he must be doing something right), he is able to ignore pretty much all the negativity and push on through, only taking in anything that can benefit him in the long run. 

Neil also discusses what he considers would be best practices for just starting out as well as what he does to keep his content fresh and rank continuously with basically no ad spend. After you’ve delved into this episode be sure to check out our previous shows with Paul Clifford and David Sinek, two folks who also know a thing or two about content and SEO. 

My philosophy is don’t get bogged down by people saying negative stuff, take that negativity and if you can improve, improve. If you can’t because it’s just opinions and there’s nothing you can use to make yourself better, then keep moving on.” - Neil Patel

Some Topics We Discussed Include:

  • How to get backlinks on your site from SEO
  • Why every little bit helps by posting on a variety of sites
  • Some ideas about the future of the internet and where we are headed 
  • How to use organic content properly
  • Neil’s list of sites for content linking and how to use each one properly
  • How to deal with haters
  • Neil’s tenacity and his content producing machine
