Rank #3: Ironman Rich Greene on How to Win at Sales Every Time

Podcast cover
Read more

Ep #160 - My guest today is Dr. Rich Greene, an author, business coach, entrepreneur, and Ironman triathlete. Dr. Greene is the founder of Amplifier, a business coaching and consulting company that works with corporate sales executives to achieve peak performance through his training programs. Prior to starting this company, rich worked as a corporate sales executive for more than 30 years across many different industries.

Over the years, Rich employed many popular strategies to create a mindset that contributed to his success. However, it was his work as a Masters Swim Coach helping triathletes to prepare for their Ironman races where he discovered that these athletes had a unique way of thinking about success. This mindset was so powerful that it enabled these athletes to face extreme challenges and succeed where most other people would fail.

After years of research working with ironman triathletes to understand this special mind power, Dr. Greene was able to capture this unique mind ability and incorporate it into an elite executive training program called The IronMan Mind. Today, he coaches top executives for companies like Hewlett Packard and Oracle to adopt this mindset.

During our interview, we dive into a few peak performance qualities including the 3 levels of listening. Dr. Greene has observed that the best sales people in the world are also among the most effective listeners. Furthermore, Dr. Greene discusses the key differences between making low priced offers and high ticket ones that may reach millions of dollars.

Additionally, we get into the importance of social media in B2B relationships and how to effectively manage it to protect your reputation. We also touch on the power of your personal brand, your word, and your performance and follow-through. Dr. Greene is a leader of leaders and has tremendous insights to share. Enjoy the interview.

Rank #6: Chris Burns on Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self

Podcast cover
Read more

Ep #118 - Chris Burns, AKA Mr. "Heart Fire," joins the show today to discuss how to become your greatest possible self. Clients hire Chris to hold them accountable so they can breakthrough their BS while he encourages them to be their best and achieve higher levels of personal and professional performance.

Chris hit rock bottom at an early age and figured out how to bounce back stronger than ever. He has since spoken on stages across the United States, and over the last 2 years, he has interviewed more than 500 inspirational role models, influencers and leaders on his weekly, 12-hour live-streamed marathon and podcast called "Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self."

In today's interview, I talk with Chris about overcoming a troubled and party-centered teenage life and finding self worth as I too went through a similar stage in my own life. Chris shares his early struggles with fitting in and the important of finding community.

Chris found it difficult to let go of the shame and guilt that came with hitting rock bottom and getting arrested, but he learned that putting his past behind him was essential to be able to step into speaking and coaching along with sharing his story. He now believes that each of us can choose to make our stories mean anything. So, if this is true, why not choose an empowering meaning for your life's story.

Later in the interview we go behind the scenes regarding his 12-hour marathon podcast. We explore why and how he sets it up this way and talk about how it got started. Chris will share a bit about what he has learned from having 9 powerful interviews a day, and how you can lead your own version of it in your community as a coach, speaker, or entrepreneur. It's a powerful interview so enjoy!

Podcast cover
Read more

Ep 187 - Welcome to Part 5 of my 5-part miniseries titled, "Winning With Words." This episode is titled "Say It Like You Mean It" and our conversation focuses around the subject of tonality. The way we use our words and the emphasis we put on them can change the meaning of what we say and especially how people interpret what we say. The classic example of this is when kids issue a half-hearted apology only to be rebuked with the phrase, "Say it like you mean it."

Rank #16: [Bonus Q&A Session] Building a business, NLP and Psychology, using a meetup to get leads in biz...

Podcast cover
Read more

Ep #4 - Today is a bonus episode from a Live Q&A answering a few hot questions of the week. Join in a facebook live session I did recently anwering things like:

1.) Nate Whalen asked what has one of your biggest personal takeaways been from building your own business ground up?

Answer) I talk about following your passion as a potentially good or bad thing, how to navigate this, and why much of today's advice doesn't work in that area.

2.) Bruce Moreno asked how well #NLP and traditional psychology play together.

Answer) I speak to the similarities and the differences between the two. How NLP tends to have a more "whole person" point of view versus normal or abnormal. In NLP there is no abnormal, simply behavior adaptions, and curiosity as to how people choose. More in the episode on this.

3.) Jim James Cassidy asked about setting up a meetup successfully in your business.

Answer) I share in the final third of the episode a few secrets to starting and launching a successful meetup group, and how to make sure people show up. Also about how long they should be, and a format for the evening meetup. Oh, and which days or evenings are the best for show up rates!Enjoy, and tune in next week for a few more.

Rank #17: Nicholas Bayerle on Reaching an Ultimate State of Health, Power, and Confidence

Podcast cover
Read more

Ep #146 - Nicholas Bayerle, an international speaker, podcast host, and social media influencer, joins me on the show this week for an inspiring and motivating interview. In our conversation, we discuss the topic of achieving greatness and the actions it actually takes for attainment. As CEO of The Billion Dollar Body, Nicholas specializes in helping men to reach an ultimate state of health, power, and confidence. Having worked with over 600 private clients, Nicholas has identified common patterns that block men from achieving full potential success. He helps them to overcome these areas by working to align their "what," "why," and "how." Sometimes a person may claim a high-level goal, but then show a lack of interest or willingness in doing the full amount of work necessary to achieve it. In cases like this, Nicholas works to get his clients to step back from the fake illusion and to embrace realistic goals based on their own threshold of willingness.

Nicholas now surrounds himself with top-tier entrepreneurs and influencers including the likes of Lewis Howes, Cole Hatter, and Jay Abraham. Through his speaking, podcasting, and social media presence, he has built a large audience of engaged followers and was recognized by Influencive as a "top 30 under 30" influencer.

Late in our interview, Nicholas describes one of his business philosophies as being a broker for the success of others. He describes how adopting this perspective changed the way he approached sales and other areas of his life. Nicholas has incredible wisdom to share and this provides a glimpse into some of the amazing things that you can learn from following him further.

Rank #18: Are you stuck, or do you see possibilities

Podcast cover
Read more

Ep #93 - "What you are expecting determines whether you will or will not be able to see the possibilities all around you." This is a quote by Daniel L. Castro and I recently shared this on my Instagram page (@mattbrauning). When I posted this, the word from this quote that really stuck out to me was "possibilities." 

I wanted to do an episode this week that goes into some NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) concepts. NLP can be thought of as the study of excellence, the study of success, but it's also the study of the language of the mind.

One of the biggest areas of language is called modal operators. There are several types of modal operators which is a fancy way of saying the mode in which we operate. It's how we walk through life and you are either walking through life in a world of possibility or in a world of necessity.

We go pretty deep into this concept and discuss the difference between possibility words and necessity words. If you're interested in this stuff and want to learn it as part of your business, grab a pad of paper and a pen and take some notes. If it's not relevant to your business, listen up anyways because you're going to learn a lot from this discussion. 

This episode is dropping on Christmas Day so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our listeners.
