EP.147 | Jeff & Derz - Farewell Feed Me Fuel Me

It’s not the end. It’s a shift. Mycal (@coachderz) & Jeff (@iamjeffthornton) have recorded the final episode of the Feed Me Fuel Me (@feedmefuelme) podcast. Feed Me Fuel Me isn’t Jeff. It’s not Derz. It’s us. And we decided to leave it that way. This is it. It has been one hell of a ride up this point. Evolution requires change. We had some very deep conversation off the mic to arrive here. We are leaving the show in a place of mutual support and respect for each other’s future...


EP.146 | Dr. Morgan Francis - Beating the Shame Game

Dr. Morgan Francis, LPC (@drmorganfrancis), owner of Scottsdale Premier Counseling (@scottsdale_premier_counseling_), explains that her passion found her as a result the therapy she received after losing her brother in a tragic accident when she was 16 years old. As she goes on to describe her journey in this week's episode of Feed Me Fuel Me (@feedmefuelme), she experienced the grieving process with a therapist sourced by her parents, and it was a tremendous help. However, at the same...


EP.145 | Tayne Griffin - Her Soul Story

Add another badass woman to the list of Feed Me Fuel Me (@feedmefuelme) guests as we sit down with co-founder of Her Soul Story (@her_soulstory), Tayne Griffin (@taynegriffin). She comes from the world of medical sales but found her passion amidst her own personal growth and development in the wake of losing everything in the recession. Tayne and her family had to give up their home and move into a friend's spare bedroom for months while they picked up the pieces. Through the process of...


EP.144 | Matt Kafora - Make The Sacrifice Worth It

Would you be willing to miss the first 18 months of your child's life to ensure they had every opportunity to succeed? That's what Matt Kafora (@mattkafora) did when he was in making deals, slinging memberships and training for big box gyms early in his career. Then there came a point where Matt decided that there had to be a better way to create the same quality of life and be a presence in his child's life. So he did what any logical person would do. He burned the boats and went all in...


EP.143 | Amanda Goolsby - The Energy Exchange

We live in a world more connected than ever. The world couldn't be smaller. The ability to reach out and connect with ANYONE is more than possible now. Yet, we find ourselves confined to the space between our ears more than ever, and when that narrative goes unchecked we can find ourselves in a dark place seeking validation from external sources when that validation actually begins inside you. This week we get into the self-worth discussion with Amanda Goolsby (@amandagoolsbycoaching),...


EP.142 | Bert Martinez - The Immigrant Mentality

In the book "The Millionaire Next Door", Thomas J Stanley (@thomasj.stanley) identifies a characteristic common amongst immigrants who come to America and become financially successful as an appreciation for hard work and the power of money. Bert Martinez (@thebertmartinez), host of the Money for Lunch Podcast was raised in a family that fled communist Cuba, settled in Houston, Texas, and starting the first Spanish newspaper the area. Bert got his start in sales and marketing through the...


EP.141 | Jeff & Derz - Branding Is Relationships

We sat down and chopped it up this week, just the two of us, before Jeff (@iamjeffthornton) heads off to Tel Aviv for an Amazon Mastermind. He is shifting gears and going all in on the tricks of the trade in a product-based industry as opposed to what worked when he sold his services as a consultant. As Jeff discovered last year building Land of Lean (@landoflean), those games are not played the same. However, where we landed in this conversation was on something monumental. Whether you...


EP.140 | Eric Fellows - You Have To Earn It

As a collegiate tennis player, Eric Fellows (@azfellows) was put through an exercise with the sports psychologist in which he was asked to visualize and describe what winning looked like. He envisioned himself raising the trophy above his head in celebration of victory. Then he was asked, "Do you believe it?" At which point, he had to look deep inside and be honest with himself. As Eric will go on to describe in this episode, as amazing as it is to WANT success in health, wealth,...


EP.139 | Rob Worley - Wellness Infused

What do you do when you are resigned to live the rest of your life in pain? To make things worse, the meds you've been prescribed have lead others in your circle to lives of addiction and drug seeking behavior? That's where Rob's life was headed before he decided to change his path. The result of that change is New Life Juice & Wellness (@newlifejuiceandwellness). After he was electrocuted from the top of a 14 foot ladder, Rob was left with 2 compressed discs and 3 bulging that lead to...


EP.138 | Justin Maxim - It's All About The Journey

This week, we ride the ride with Justin Maxim (@justin__maxim), our videographer, founder of JMAX Media (@jmaxmediallc) and partner in VaporSwift Media (@vaporswift_media). A low-key clairvoyant, Justin has consciously and unconsciously followed his intuition from driving a mail truck in the cold winters of Akron, OH to the arid heat of Scottsdale, AZ. Justin came to the conclusion early on, that being miserable wasn't worth the money. This philosophy lead him to a period of giving....


EP.137 | Jeff and Derz - Ego is Hard Work

How much of the adversity we experience is of our own doing? Why do we have such a hard time accepting the advice of mentors as gospel? Speaking of advice; not all guidance is created equal. It is true that many of the people of influence in our lives give advice from a place of love with our best interest at heart. However, in many of those instances, much of that cautionary guidance also comes from inexperience and fear. So while they may be looking out for you, these people can be...


EP.136 | Tammy Fellows - You Can Have It All

We are excited to add Tammy Fellows (@tfellows77) to our ever-growing list of superwomen! She owns a number of lifestyle publications native to Phoenix, Arizona's East Valley, namely Paradise Valley Lifestyle (@paradisevalleylifestyle). Tammy has an incredible story in which she cut her teeth in marketing and media to find success as a woman in an overwhelmingly male-dominated field. After spending her early years learning her trade and harnessing her craft, she struck out on her...


EP.135 | Neil Carlson - It's All In The Words

Did you know that by the time we reach adulthood, we are subconsciously wired to say, "No"? Neither did we. That is until we met Neil Carlson, sales coach and founder of "It's All In The Words" Sales Training. In his 40+ year career, he has studied sales and people for 30 of them. Publishing a book on human behavior and sales, with a second on the way. In that time he has come to one singular conclusion: you must change your way of thinking before you can ever expect to change the mind of a...


EP.134 | Sam Davis - She's A Boss!

If she looks like a boss, sounds like a boss, and acts like a boss, she probably is a boss! That's exactly what Sam Davis (@samdavis19) has become, not only her own boss but her own superhero as well! Like many entrepreneurs, Sam recognized holes in an industry and then built her company around fixing the gaps she saw. Creating a niche market for herself in the process. Sam has an amazing soul. One in which the value of relationships is unquantifiable. After a last minute trip to see a...


EP.133 | Jason Archer - HardWodder: Creating Mastery

It is rare that we get to see the manifestation of a mindset based in scarcity and that of abundance simultaneously. In the case of Jason Archer, founder of HardWodder (@hardwodder), he got to experience both firsthand. He was raised, on the other side of the tracks in a family that never really had much. He also had an uncle, whom he would later work for, that had everything your heart desires. He has taken the scrappy work ethic and resourcefulness acquired by being one of society's "Have...


EP.132 | Kevin Donahue - What Is Alpha?

What do you think when you hear the word "ALPHA"? What does it mean to be masculine? Can feminine be truly defined? As we dive in with Kevin Donahue (@donahuekm), founder of Surf & Serve (@surf_and_serve) and serial entrepreneur, he has found his gift in people. His mission is to serve. As he quoted Dan Sullivan, creator of Strategic Coach (@strategic.coach), "people are helium distributors, and others in the world are balloons. The more helium we put into each other's balloons, the higher...


EP.131 | Curtis Ray - Pay Yourself First!

This week we sit down with Curtis Ray (@curtisthefinancialguy), author of "Everyone Ends Up Poor" and we talk about MONEY!! As PT Barnum once said, "Money is a terrible master, but is an excellent servant". Curtis developed, designed, and implemented the Maximum Premium Index (MPI) financial strategy. Curtis is a serial entrepreneur, having an athletic career cut short only to realize that a conventional education wasn't for him, he struck out on his own. Along the way, he began a ferocious...


EP.130 | Josh Zuniga - The Love Frequency 528

How do you manifest love? You have to start operating from a place of abundance, which increases your vibration. This, in turn, increases your frequency. The frequency of LOVE so happens to be, 528 Hz. Also known as the frequency of creation. This is just one of the many lessons learned in our conversation with real estate entrepreneur and developmental coach, Josh Zuniga (@joshzuniga_). While the family business is in financing, fixing, and flipping homes, it is the result, not the...


EP.129 | Leila Marrash - Reveal The Realness

Leila Marrash (@lei.a.m) was the victim of her own choices for a long while. She took a trip to Sedona, Arizona seeking clarity and found much more than that. She found ownership and purpose. A labor of love, Leila wears her heart on her sleeve in hopes of inspiring others to live their best lives and to set their authentic selves free. REVEAL the Realness (@revealtherealness) builds on Leila's Guiding Principles of REVEAL, offering a holistic approach to health and wellness. Through her...


EP.128 | Subyn Wadsworth - Sometimes Your Passion Finds You

Subyn Wadsworth (@subyn) is no stranger to being, as David Goggins (@davidgoggins) puts it, "The Only". Growing up in two families: her white hippie mother in Oregon and her black executive father in Washington, D.C. she had to create her own identity very quickly. As she came into her own she was often not "black" enough or racially ambiguous in her immediate circles of influence. Subyn's life is one symbolic of being at the right place at the right time, sometimes for the wrong reasons....
