Brenda Ring Wood is known as the “Professor of Change.” She has been an entrepreneur since high school and has seen many challenges in life, including battling cancer and spending 4 years in prison. Through those challenging times, Brenda realized it was up to her to make a significant shift in her life if she wanted true happiness. Shifting our perception of our circumstances and the world around us can make all the difference in our mindset and reality.

Rich is very focused on optimizing life with efficiency, routine, and manifestation, which has led him to where he is today.

Although saying “no” can feel difficult, a lot of things are not worth letting go of your dream. That might mean waking up earlier, spending less time on social media, or even walking away from a position that you know is limiting your potential, just as Rich did. Tune in to hear Rich explain the power of “addition through subtraction.” Key highlights: Introduction to Rich and his background as a marine and Amazon employeeHow he quit his job at Amazon to be an entrepreneurTony’s advice for becoming a leader in your company even if your company doesn't put you on that pathWhy Rich applied to entry-level positions after quitting AmazonHow a lot of people are limiting themselves in what they are willing to do and learnKnowing which doors to shut and avoiding “shiny object syndrome”When to stop consuming content and take actionHow to get unique content when meeting your role modelsHow Rich got the idea for his globally ranked podcast, NFTs for NewbiesClues that you should consider a pivotAre you rolling with people you are not aligned with? The price of your dream is letting go of the thing you're doing right nowSacrifices don't always mean you're losing somethingThe power of saying “no” is one of the best skill sets you can haveThe value of your proximityAddition through subtraction and being in a “no” periodThe local vs. global benefitWhat Rich has learned from a social media hiatusThe power of conceptualizing and visualizing what you wantYour subconscious looks for opportunities to meet your goals Quote from the episode: “The world will give you more of what you give attention and energy to.” For more information about this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode255

Uncertain Times Bring Opportunity for Exploration - with Joan Ball - EP254
Joan Ball is an associate professor in the Tobin College of Business at St. John’s University in New York City and the founder of WOMB Service Design Lab, an action research consultancy where she works with individuals, teams, and organizations to help people learn to thrive in uncertain times. Joan works with leaders of all experience levels and helps them to navigate and thrive through times of change and embrace the idea of pausing and inquiring. Disruptions and uncertainty happen to everyone, but learning to pivot around or push through is not always the best option. Joan is passionate about changing how we view uncharted territory and see it as a great opportunity to inquire about our true goals and wishes, and explore new routes that will set us on the path to living our own version of a fulfilled life. So many of us get caught up in a game of comparison and think that there is only one path to success, and if we don’t follow that path, we have failed. In this episode, Joan invites you to spend more time pausing and doing the work to make sure your identity and goals are in alignment. Her work lives in the space between ambition, impact, and well-being at a time when we are forced to reimagine what it means to live meaningful and successful lives in a rapidly changing world.  Key highlights: Introduction to Joan and how she got to where she is nowWhy do we pursue other people’s dreams?Joan explains the idea of time boxed experiments and active waitingNavigating no man’s landWe all have the capacity to persevere or panic, so how do we amplify the perseverance part?What are some indicators that change is needed?Practicing pause and inquirySelf-identity and direction - Who will I be and where am I going?Tony’s experience with a micromanager and having a hard conversationWhat are you avoiding that you know you need to confront?“What now” moments - assessing what your options are in a situation that is not ideal for usConnecting your goals to the steps that it takes to get thereThe significance of pausing and assessing our happiness with where we are currentlySometimes the next step is going backward for a little whileNot getting caught up with your ego and comparison game, sometimes we are happier with lessThe idea of a “true north” is deadCalibrating your journey and goals with your valuesIf you are in the midst of change with no direction, what is the first step to take? Quote from the episode: “I'd rather prevent unhappiness perhaps, than always have to be happy.” For more information about this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode254

Are You Living in Freedom? - EP252
Tony Whatley delivered this closing speech about Freedom at the 365 Driven "Advance 4" event on May 21, 2022, in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Tony speaks about 3 types of freedom we should all be striving for: financial freedom, time freedom, and mental freedom. Financial freedom isn't just about the numbers, but more so about the freedom to choose where your money is coming from and have the ability to make decisions that will bring in more money if that is what you want. It’s not being tied to a company or job where you don’t have control of the money you can acquire.  The next is time freedom. Tony talks about how we have been sold an idea that we have to hustle all the time in order to be successful. In reality, we should be intentionally delegating tasks to others in order to free up time for things that we enjoy. This is the key to scaling a business while getting your time back. Focus on your strengths and get help with everything else. The last freedom is mental freedom. Tony shares about his near death experience and the perspective on life he gained from going through that. The truth that we all have to face is that we will die someday. Wasting time and energy on what other people are going to think, or fearing judgment is a waste of time and holds us back from taking action, making a real impact, and creating a life we are truly proud of.  Key highlights: How Tony started his first company by teaching himself how to build websitesBeing more focused on giving than receivingSelling Tony’s first company at age 34Developing money maturityProviding value to othersYou don't have to work 24/7How to scale your business while getting your time backGetting rid of negative or toxic peopleHow Tony’s parents instilled discipline in himBeing fired from his corporate jobHis near-death experience and what he took away from thatAction, belief, consistency- take the action before you have the beliefHow Tony got better at public speakingLosing the fear of judgment Quote from the episode: “Regret is avoidable, but only with action.” For more information about this episode, visit: 365driven.com/episode252
