Rank #5: Lessons in Leadership - Selena Easter

Podcast cover
Read more
Excel Fitness CEO, Mike Turner, decided to flip the script on the podcast and sit me down for an interview.

Typically, I give the guests a heads up on possible questions but of course, Mike being spontaneous, wanted to go off-the-cuff so I had zero idea of what he was going to ask me and neither did he (LOL), which made me more nervous!

Anyone that knows me, knows I’m notoriously private and fiercely protective of my personal life so opening up about myself is inherently difficult for me. I didn’t know if I would ever let this interview see the light of day but one trait that I’ve learned from Mike is the power of vulnerability, which is why I’ve decided to share my story.

It’s raw, real, unedited, and full of heart. Take a listen as we talk how I started my life over at 27, why I moved to Austin without a car, mental health, resilience, shaping the industry, and much, much more!

Excel Fitness Operations Excellence Head Coach, Selena Aguirre had the opportunity to sit down with Excel Fitness Director of Strategy, Jeff Helfgott.

Jeff is a multi-skilled, intellectually-diverse character that helps shape the tactics behind the company’s success. Selena has grown to know him well over the past three years and yet, he continues to be an enigma, of sorts.

Check out Part I where he discusses effective leadership strategies, almost losing his hand in a combat mission, developing mental fortitude, and manifest thinking.

Check out Part II where he discusses the importance of providing context when sharing information, almost getting fired, developing self-awareness, and effective teaching techniques.

Check out the conclusion and my favorite part of our discussion where he discusses helpful leadership tools, developing a love for learning, and why he decided to summit Mt. Kilimanjaro for fun.

This next speaker is one I’ve been patiently waiting for.
She is as busy as they come, so it was a big deal that she made time to sit down with me for the podcast.
This self-described rule-follower and seriously-responsible Director has a lot on her plate, as she oversees one of the

most important departments in the company. But don’t be mistaken, this El Paso native may just surprise you.
She’s also funny, smart, charming, witty, and laughs at all of my jokes :)
I'm very excited to add Excel Fitness Director of Human Resources, Bobbi Brant to Lessons in Leadership lineup!

Check out her interview, where she discusses her childhood, why she’s no Bill Gates, and how she found her way into Human Resources.

She also discusses what drives her passion for her work, her on-boarding experience at Excel, and how she helped build out the HR infrastructure we have today!

Podcast cover

This person is no ordinary individual. Hailing from small-town, New York, no one could’ve guessed that what started for him as a love for online poker would eventually evolve into a behemoth of a business.

He was named #1 on the Dallas 100, his company was listed as one of the fastest growing in America by Inc. Magazine, he’s been listed on countless business power rankings, and most recently announced as a 2019 finalist for EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year award.

However, his accomplishments have not come easy. He’s had to navigate some of life’s toughest hardships to maintain his success and despite these challenges, has never given up.

But that’s not even the most impressive part about him.
He’s been able to achieve all of this before even reaching the ripe age of 30 and he’s only just getting started!

I’m so happy to welcome JM Bullion founder, CEO, and my dear friend, Mike Wittmeyer.
