This 8-Figure Business Coach Turned Empathy Into a Superpower That Made Him Millions (and How You Can Do It Too) – Interview With Alex Charfen - Episode 74

The Kim Constable Podcast

Stop letting yourself off the hook. Too often, we fall victim to excuses, and these excuses become the way we do everything in our life. They become the habitual reasons we never reach our full potential, and yet most of us never realize we are the cause...or the solution. Over the last few years, more and more people are jumping into the entrepreneurial life, but something is happening in the process—they’re letting themselves off the hook. They’re not showing up for themselves. They’re getting wrapped up in their emotions and doing all the wrong things that are ultimately leading to the demise of their business.  So I decided to interview Alex Charfen, co-founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar business, to get to the root of why most people are struggling with entrepreneurship. It ended up being quite an emotional podcast. Alex may be a multi-millionaire now, but he has struggled throughout his life and has even experienced bankruptcy. As a kid, he had a difficult time fitting in. He was made fun of, mocked, and constantly judged (by kids and adults alike). He was the weird kid with massive self-awareness, always getting in trouble and constantly switching between the gifted classes and the special education classes, never knowing where he belonged. He spent much of his childhood surrounded by powerful women who supported each other emotionally. As a result, he developed an incredibly influential level of empathy, which I deem his superpower.  He has used his superpower to go from bankrupt to being on the Inc. 500 list of the fastest-growing companies in the country three years in a row and won many other awards. Now, his mission is to help other entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses just like he did. In this interview, he talks candidly about his struggles growing up and how he’s now using these experiences to make millions of dollars helping people. And you might be surprised to learn how he’s done it. You will hear him talk about:  Why he’s no longer unschooling his kids (I absolutely loved this) How his unique childhood experiences formed his massive level of empathy  How top-down pressure can destroy your team/business How entrepreneurs are failing and how they should be running their business How masculine and feminine energy can work synergistically to explode your business and make you millions What’s missing in women-owned businesses that could be the one catalyst to their massive success Why we say businesses are becoming more powerful than governments You are going to really love hearing Alex share his heart and passion.  Love Kim xo Reference List:  Radical Honesty: How to Transform Your Life by Telling the Truth (by Brad Blanton) (https://www.amazon.com/Radical-Honesty-Transform-Telling-Truth/dp/0970693842) Alex Charfen’s website - BOOK A CALL to see how Alex can help you level up in your business: (https://www.charfen.com/) Alex’s podcast: (https://www.charfen.com/podcast/)  FREE BOOK: Your Entrepreneurial Personality Type (https://eptbook.com/ept) QUOTES USED: “When your behavior matches your beliefs, you are integrated.” “Consistency creates trust.

People are living as the best version of themselves. Good things are happening. People are being helped. Love and encouragement is being shared.  And it’s all because you helped them get there by stepping into your calling and walking in your EPIC vision, creating a legacy movement, and changing the world.  In this week’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I talk with Alex Charfen about creating momentum in your business.

I can’t wait for you to dive into this game changing podcast! The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are: “There are clear differences in what successful people do and so I started applying those things to my life.”  After years of studying successful people, Alex found that there were similarities and commonalities in and between these people. And there were patterns within patterns and personality descriptors that began to shed light on common attributes that successful people had. Through this, he has created his Entrepreneurial Personality Type system. [6:15] In today’s world, we have this belief that if you aren’t like everyone else, then something is wrong with you.  Part of your superpower is being you! The real you! In today’s world, it’s easy to feel the pressures to “fit in”, show up, and be like everyone else. It can be difficult to be different and do things in your unique way. But I want to call you to it! You are you and nobody else! So walk in the fullness of who you are and live out your epic calling! [8:49]  “Any attempt to be anything other than yourself only increases pressure and noise… it’s sabotaging your success.” Who you are and how you show up is so important! And it has to be authentic! Waking up everyday and living a facade will take a toll on your business, your health, your finances, your life. You are you! So be the real, authentic, unique person that you are. And own it! [36:00] I want to leave you with this challenge.

I know the world can be messy and intimidating but you are you for a reason!  I want to see you walk in the fullness of who you are with confidence, joy, and clarity! I want to see you live out your mission in authenticity, vulnerability, and uniqueness! And I am here to help you do it!

TEA# 52: The Secret To Real Freedom & Momentum in Life with Alex Charfen

The Entrepreneur Accelerator

About Alex Charfen:Entrepreneur, author, speaker, and coach who has spent 3 decades on the front lines of entrepreneurship and business, and is helping tens of thousands of entrepreneurs with six-, seven-, and eight-figure businesses to grow and scale.Career History: Alex’s entrepreneurial journey started early on at a young age. In his twenties, Alex became a Fortune 500 consultant, working with some of the most successful people in the world. When he met his wife, Cadey, he sold his consulting business and together they invested heavily in the Florida real estate boom of the late 90's, and soon found themselves prosperous, but highly leveraged. When the market took a dive, they lost everything and were forced to declare bankruptcy. "It was," says Alex, "my darkest hour." Rising from the ashes, they built an information product called the Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE) where they worked with the majority of major lenders and real estate brokerages in the United States, and taught other Realtors what they'd learned, offering education, tools and hope. Later they discovered that many of these principles applied to any small business, and with this theory CHARFEN was formed. Within the first few years, it became one of the fastest-growing small businesses in the country with the mission of empowering entrepreneurs to grow and scale their business and make their greatest contribution.Sharing his journey with others has led Alex to write for publications such as Success, Entrepreneur, and Inc. Magazine, and his story has also garnered attention from major media outlets like MSNBC, CNBC, FOX News, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, and Investor’s Business Daily. As a result of his mentorship and success, Alex is now known as the go-to person for helping entrepreneurs ascend the Billionaire Code and understand how to plan strategically.~You can find Alex Charfen on…  LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexcharfen/Company LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/charfen/Website: https://www.charfen.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/alexcharfen/?hl=enTwitter: https://twitter.com/alexcharfen?lang=enYoutube: https://www.youtube.com/c/AlexCharfenFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/charfen/Don’t forget to check out Alex’s 3-day event as he teaches his new Momentum Masterclass LIVE on October 6 to 8!======================================================================To book a power session with Reem, go to: https://calendly.com/reem-kharbat/30min To Join Reem's mentoring program, learn the same exact strategy she used to build her three 7-figure businesses, got featured in Vogue Magazine and Top Media, go to : www.reemkharbat.com Or Book a consultation call to see if you're a fit for this program at https://calendly.com/reem-kharbat/teal If you would like to learn 7 figure strategies to launch and grow your business and be surrounded by like-minded people, then make sure to join my community of elite entrepreneurs : https://www.facebook.com/groups/theentrepreneuracceleratorlab If you enjoyed the episode, if it helped you in any way, or if you had ONE aha moment, please let me know, hit the subscribe button and leave me a review and a comment.
