March 15th 2020, we all remember that timeframe when the world shut down and many of us had to pivot. Some of us had our careers completely wiped out.
For Julie Hruska, she would teach her last 'in person' class on this day, then shut down her studio 6 years prior to her existing plans.
Julie then made her pivot, she declared what she wanted to do, which was expand in a time of contraction. Then it started, full send on getting active on LinkedIn, creating content, getting active on video, networking.
Julie posted this on her LinkedIn page recently:
"2 years ago, when the world locked down, I faced the dark unknown.
As a single mother of 3 and an entrepreneur, I had to pivot quickly to keep the lights on and food on our table. It sounds dramatic, because it was.
I knew that if I didn’t quickly shift to a virtual model for my business, my coaching company wouldn’t survive and my children would suffer.
The pivot was fast, but I was committed.
There was a steep learning...
Today on the Mindset Hackers Podcast it's time to drop some major heat with one of the most impressive entrepreneurs that I know, Ammar Assad.
Ammar owns 2 rental car franchises and learned how to 'detach' from his businesses and hire the right managers to allow those to function independently, they started business coaching to help others do the same.
Ammar is a leader within a top sales and coaching organization who helps other coaches go from average to elite. He has also been a pivotal colleague in my own entrepreneurial journey and a great friend as well.
Before we started recording, I asked Ammar what was one topic that he was excited to jam about and he said 'Taking Action', which was EXACTLY what I was wanting to talk about.
As you know, I often talk about the formula for success being this equation "Knowledge + Action - Overthink = Massive Results".
When you dissect any journey, and you use this formula, you can find out where the breakdown is: you are lacking the skills...

Hello Mindset Hackers, on this episode my Mindset Twinner Hallie Avolio joins me as we talk about the importance of elevated emotions and having a high frequency makes it incredibly easy to create the life that you desire.
Last week I talked about the Law of Attraction and how most people miss out on the 'taking action' component. But there is more to that, and it has to do with you emotional frequency and staying as much as possible in what is called an 'elevated emotion'.
Your emotional frequency has ranges depending on what kind of state you are in.
At the lowest part of the spectrum: fear, shame, resentment, victim mentality, unworthiness.
At the highest part of the spectrum: joy, happiness, enlightenment, freedom, gratitude.
By having an intent (of where you want to go) combined with a true elevated state, will allow more of what you want to come into your life.
In this episode we also talk about Abraham Hicks and the...
I remember when I was a kid, my grandfather used to always tell me:
"You've got to work hard, you've got to go to school and get a degree, then you can succeed".
When I was younger I used to love school, but then around high school I started hating it, and by the time college came around, I knew that I didn't want to pay crazy amounts of money to do something that I hated.
Without me realizing it, it became a battle of 'going to school to succeed' or 'having an average life'.
I didn't want school, so I resigned myself to living an average life.
By sheer chance, I got the opportunity to scrape dishes as a bus boy at the Country Club and be around very successful people that made it look easy.
But for me, I still had years of ups and downs before it started to feel easy, because my belief system was that it needed to be hard.
The crazy thing is I was programmed that success NEEDs to be hard.
How many of us have been told through our entire life: 'you've got to work hard for success'?
Today on Mindset Hackers I bring you one of the top professional mindset coaches that I know. She has a podcast that ranks in the top 1.5% in the world, she has also been voted as one of the top Mompreneurs by Yahoo Finance and today she sits down with me to talk about the journey and the mindset of a true entrepreneur that makes a living doing what she loves to do.
Jamie is also a member of the Elite Mastermind group, the top mindset and personal development mastermind in the world and part of my Elite series of interviews with some of the members.
Jamie Kullman was born to be an entrepreneur, slinging car parts out of her garage right after high school. Then she became an Amazon affiliate, a model, then she became a Podcaster inspiring and empowering moms to create sources of revenue.
Then she became a professional mindset and business coach and that is how our paths have crossed.
The path of entrepreneur is no surprise: sometimes it looks all glossy and badass but what you don't...
Are you thinking "Simon, why the hell are you saying that coaching is a waste of money? Don't you support coaches and don't you coach"?
I didn't say that coaching was a waste of money.
I said spending money on coaching was a waste of money.
The definition of spending is: to use up, to consume wastefully, to squander.
Unfortunately the truth is a lot of people look at hiring a coach as spending, and even worse, they act like it.
They say that only 3% of digital courses (without a live component) are completed.
Far too few people even give themselves the gift of coaching or learning after they leave school.
Then there are those that do decide to further their knowledge and buy a course but either don't finish (gain the knowledge) or don't take action with the knowledge in order to gain results.
The equation for massive success is: knowledge + action - overthink = incredible results.
There are a few people, the elite, who INVEST in coaching.
"There Ain't No Other Way To Be Than High Frequency" - Natalie Spaeth
Natalie Spaeth has had a rollercoaster of a life, but in a short amount of time has made a major transformation in her life and is now a professional fitness and mindset coach. She is also the 2nd interview of my Elite Series episodes where I have the honor of interviewing several members of the Elite Coaching Systems mastermind group that is the most comprehensive mindset programs in the world.
Natalie's life on the outside may look absolutely perfect and pristine now, but in her true authenticity shares with us what it looked like behind the scenes.
She had a good upbringing in a strong and supportive family but found herself overweight, addicted to drugs, pregnant without knowing who the father is, then into an abusive relationship, then many other battles.
At her darkest moment, she made a change and asked for guidance from her higher power to give her the strength to change things around. She made...
I had it pretty good in my 20’s until I blew it all up
Up until high school, I had always thought I would live an average life, I clearly remember walking to school one day with a somber thought of me ‘just getting by’ through life, hating my job because it was all I could get because I didn’t want to go to college and ‘do what they say’ to be successful.
It's true, a lot of people have a big aversion to getting on a call with potential clients.
You can be the best coach in the world but if you can't sell, then you can't do what you do best.
When I even mention sales to a lot of people and ask them what comes to mind they say things like:
^ Those are actually words from a live call I did where I asked that question.
So how do you sell if your gut gets an icky feeling with even mentioning sales?
Our Leveraging LinkedIn community had the honor of having Charlotte Petit Noble drop some massive value on our group about sales calls and how to feel good about them.
English is a second language for Charlotte and she says she can close sales calls with ease by adopting these 4 core beliefs:
Core Belief #1: You are the expert. You are the one that solves the problem. You are the one who can solve the pain points.
