Behind the Brand with Bryan Elliott

Bryan Elliott

Founded in 2008, Behind the Brand with Bryan Elliott is a show about innovators, entrepreneurs and the stories behind their success. It's like a backstage pass inside the minds, companies and habits of some of the smartest and most interesting people on the planet. Host, Bryan Elliott decodes these stories to help you turn their wisdom into practical tactics that you can use to improve your life and grow your business. Why do this?I'm someone who loves to tell stories that I hope will inspire and educate others to find their reason for being. I basically invented the podcast I wish I had when I quit my corporate job and started my own business. I made a lot of mistakes and figured things out the hard way. I've been inspired by so many of my guests and I know you'll find a ton of value here as well. I love the quote from Mark Twain: "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." My mission thru my video series, podcast, talks, book(s) etc. is to help people discover their purpose and find joy and fulfillment. read less

For What It's Worth

For What It's Worth
One of my traditions in the new year is to read a quote often attributed to F. Scott Fitzgerald. Based on my research, this actually may be an adaptation from a screenplay or movie -- but whatever the case and for me --the words and message are more important than the context of the person (who may have written it):“For what it’s worth … it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”Special Thanks to our sponsors!Fourlaps:This episode is brought to by Fourlaps. When I was searching for the perfect short to take me from a run near my home in Laguna — right into a swim in the Pacific Ocean — I found the Fourlaps Bolt short 5”.

Everything You (probably) DON'T Know about Marketing | Seth Godin
This interview has millions of views on Youtube but since it was EP #1 when I launched the podcast, let's just say a lot fewer people have listened to this on the audio podcast here. For that reason I'm republishing this classic! Marketing is often a misunderstood concept often viewed as simply creating demand and driving brand awareness. Seth Godin dispels this view by explaining everything you need to know. Special Thanks to our sponsors!Eight Sleep:This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep. Good sleep is the ultimate game changer and the Eight Sleep Pod is the ultimate sleep machine. I HAVE A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT — CHOOSE YOUR FORM — THE NEW POD 3 COVER AND MATTRESS IS HERE!

Sleep, especially on a thermo-regulated bed at the right temperature customized for me, has been the key to feeling my best and performing at a high level. The Eight Sleep Pro Pod is a game-changer! If you sleep with someone every night like I do, you would normally have to compromise with your partner on temperature… But not with Eight Sleep. The Pod is the only sleep technology that dynamically cools and heats each side of the bed, to maintain the optimal sleeping temperature for what your body needs. With the pod, you can start sleeping as cool as 55°F or as hot as 110°F.  You control everything with an app on your phone and it’s really easy.

Rob Siegel - The Brains and Brawn Company: How Leading Organizations Blend the Best of Digital and Physical
Rob Siegel is a lecturer at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business who specializes in teaching strategy and innovation for both large and small-scale businesses and companies. He is the author of the book The Brains and Brawn Company [https://amzn.to/3bY1CJz] which uses the brain and body as metaphors for ways that companies can be successful holistically. Siegel has spent time researching the ways in which technology changes things in the business sector and he has explored how companies can integrate digital and physical solutions for their client base and customers. It’s a fascinating career to have but Siegel tells me that he never had an idea that he’d end up here and he found his work by happenstance. “When I was a teenager, I was just a big, fat loser,” he says. “I was just trying to think about how I was going to get beer and try to meet girls. And I didn’t really know what I wanted to do. I entered UC Berkeley as a seventeen-year-old, and my roommate was working for a software company. This was the mid-eighties and I had played with computers, but I didn’t really know software or how it was made. I was thinking about studying engineering and I said, okay I need to make some beer money now that I’m in college and so I ended up going to work for the software company part time and I loved it. I loved technology; I loved the people. I loved the energy.”Special thanks to our sponsor WeWork!I love my WeWork office because it perfectly suits my entrepreneurial lifestyle and business model.

Olivier Bernhard - On Running Brand

Olivier Bernhard - On Running Brand
When On Running Co-Founder Olivier Bernhard was a child, running made him feel whole. He had trouble focusing in school and he says that in today’s society he would have probably been given medication to help him focus. Luckily his parents saw the energy he needed to expel and put him into a running club. That changed everything. The experience of moving his body and running gave him a sense of belonging and place and eventually he would grow up to be a pro Swiss athlete.“I’ve been a runner all my life,” he says. “I would say I’ve had this DNA in me. I started racingwhen I was five or six years old, and I enjoyed it. Maybe not so much to climb the podium andclaim a medal. It was more the feeling of running; the breathing and heartbeat...”Bernhard—a multi-championship Ironman never intended to be at the helm of a disruptor brand, nor did he intend to create a running shoe company. The idea sort of found him when he was looking at ways, not to create new running products but to create a different kind of running experience and feeling.

Chris Voss - Master the Art of Negotiation and Learn How to Win

Chris Voss - Master the Art of Negotiation and Learn How to Win
It's 1983 and Chris Voss was hired at the FBI just before his 26th birthday. During his 24 years of service with the Bureau, Voss became a leading international kidnapping negotiator. He regularly engaged with some of the world's most dangerous criminals in extremely high-stakes scenarios. One of the moments that put Chris on the map was the time he successfully negotiated the release of hostages after a 1993 bank robbery at a Chase Manhattan bank in Brooklyn.I imagine Chris's life a little like a scene from one of my favorite TV shows, The Americans, a period drama about two KGB spies (portrayed by Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) posing as Americans in suburban Washington, D.C., during the Reagan administration. Voss is currently the founder and head of the Black Swan Group, where he and his team are leveraging his deep knowledge and experience to train businesses and individuals to become highly effective negotiators. Here are a few things you might learn from Chris during this session:1. How to decipher your leverage and negotiate from strength [ "The enemy is not the person across the table; the adversary is the situation." ]In other words, don't make people the enemy--focus instead on the problem to be solved. Negotiation shouldn't be a zero-sum game if you're planning to be in business long-term. So how do we win without burning bridges? The best strategy according to Voss is to "come up with a better deal than both parties could have imagined. You're both faced with different aspects of the same problem. So by definition, you have to look out for the other person to get to the best deal you can get."2. How to figure out if you're the favorite or the fool...3. How to use tactical empathy...While many believe that business is war, Voss sees getting to wins as a collaboration with effort on both sides rooted in empathy. "Aim to magnify positive emotions. To try and take emotions out of negotiation is a fool's errand." So be kind. Be professional. Put yourself in your rival's shoes and figure out a way for you to both be happy. 4. How to use mirroring...And much more! Special thanks to our sponsors:This episode is brought to you by Eight Sleep. Good sleep is the ultimate game changer and the Eight Sleep Pod is the ultimate sleep machine. “For me, the three pillars of health are: Sleep. Nutrition. Exercise.

Alex Hormozi - Listen to this if you want to become a millionaire

Alex Hormozi - Listen to this if you want to become a millionaire
Do you know the difference between $1 million and $1 billion? It's a lot. If you were to compare the delta in time, a million seconds is about 11 days. However, a billion seconds is almost 32 years. Alex Hormozi, entrepreneur, author, and CEO of Acquisition.com, has a growing portfolio of companies worth upwards of $100 million. Hormozi has a remarkable story that has all the makings of a Hollywood movie. Triumph and tragedy; high stakes business failure and success; complicated family relationships; romance; and more. Hormozi says that by the age of 32, he and his wife Leila's portfolio of companies crossed $85 million per year in revenue spanning brick-and-mortar service, licensing, education, SaaS, and e-commerce. In my opinion, they are on a trajectory to hit the billion-dollar milestone sooner than most.In his 20s, Hormozi opted to choose his own path and not the one that his successful Iranian immigrant father hoped he'd choose. Many children of immigrants might relate to this story and the subsequent consequence of the choice. Hormozi's decision led to serious conflict and years of tension -- even thoughts of suicide -- between Hormozi and his father that he had to figure out how to heal. In spite of it all, Hormozi remained true to himself and eventually, he hit major success working in the world of fitness and fitness business. Hormozi tells me that in his youth, everything he did in his life was in pursuit of his father's approval, and that he had never really made decisions for himself and for his own joy. Ultimately, it became clear that he didn't want to live the life that he was living. He says that for a short time he contemplated not living anymore at all, but ultimately decided that risking disappointing his father and carving his own path was a better way out, and so he took that risk.  Listen to this wide ranging conversation with $100 million Alex Hormozi -- and you might catch the formula to becoming financially free.Check out Alex's Youtube channel:https://www.youtube.com/c/AlexHormoziSpecial thanks to our sponsors:Vimeo:This episode is brought to by Vimeo…I’ve been a Pro User of Vimeo basically since I started my production company in 2010.

Charlie Health's Carter Barnhart - a brand making personalized mental health treatment for teens, young adults & families available and affordable to everyone
Trigger warning for listeners sensitive to mentions of sexual trauma or violence, this episode contains references to rape and recovery from sexual trauma.Most teenagers move through the world with a feeling of invincibility. With a few rare exceptions, teens who are still living in the care of their parents and within the family unit home are sheltered from life’s harshest realities. While they might be individuating, preparing for college and the life they’ll live once they leave the nest, it usually takes a major life event to shake a teen out of their childhood bubble and welcome them to the realities of the real world.  For some, this might mean little-t traumas like getting fired from a job, or going through a breakup, but for Carter Barnhart, it was something far more difficult. When she was just fourteen, Barnhart was out at a concert with friends, and she was raped. One night and just like that her life changed forever. Her innocence and childlike wonder shifted to a place of darkness, loneliness and pain.Barnhart comes from a strong family, and she is close with her parents and her brother, yet none of them could reach her. She didn’t tell them what happened to her, so on her own she was facing depression, anxiety and passive suicidal ideation.

When Necessity is the Mother of Survival | Robb Wolf
Wolf believes that all wellness is rooted in sleep, food, movement, and community and that if we can get a handle on those things we will need to see our doctors far less. The onus falls on us, but he’s doing his part to educate and help the masses not only with his books, but also with LMNT Electrolyte supplements. https://www.behindthebrand.tv/lmnt His story and his life’s mission is one that I personally vibe with and can relate to. I have had my own moments of experimenting with food and exercise and diet in my own search to deal with chronic headaches and sleep apnea. In my journey, I saw countless doctors who took educated guesses on how to fix what was ailing me, but in the end, I knew intuitively to a degree what was going to work and what was not. Neither Wolf nor I want to disparage doctors in any way. When something goes wrong, having a trusted physician is an incredible advocate to have, but when it comes to overall wellness, there are actions that we as people can take to advocate for ourselves that limit how much medical care we need.

When we step out into the world, we are transformed

When we step out into the world, we are transformed
I’m excited for you to watch this next episode with Global Brand & Marketing Officer, at Marriott International and the Convoy brand, Tina Edmundson.  Please forgive the video quality as we had to do this via zoom but the content is a masterclass in brand marketing for any of you wondering how to build your own brand.  I never considered how much I really valued feeling like I belong [when I travel] until the pandemic locked me in isolation. The distance and separation from family, friends and colleagues was dramatic and I felt it. Travel and connections to new people and places can open our minds to new possibilities and help us remember our humanity. Without hyperbole, travel has been transformative for me. My advice for choosing a place to stay is based on this feeling of being with “your people” whatever that may look like. It might be subtle but the social aspects can make all the difference and even help you bond, heal or create new friendships. This idea reminds me of a theme song from an old 80’s TV show. The lyrics hit me differently now:   “Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away?  Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name… And they're always glad you came. You want to be where you can see, our troubles are all the same. You want to be where everybody knows your name. Let’s get into it — Cheers!
