115: Why Your Reasons Are Excuses

“Successful people—no matter the details—are ultimately successful because they are f—ing relentless.” (click to tweet) We are elegant storytellers. When left to ourselves, our minds can play the trick of justifying anything and everything. And when it comes to achieving our dreams, we often hide excuses as reasons for why we haven’t met our goals. This lying to ourselves blocks us from achieving our dreams because we can’t accurately diagnose what is and isn’t working That’s why on...


114: Why You Are A Future Thought Leader with The Elementary Entrepreneur

“Instead of calling it ‘selling’ - call it serving because you’re giving value to the other person.” - Julian Alfaro (click to tweet) We all have a unique story to tell. But often times, our busy lives make it difficult to tap into that voice. We become bogged down by the minutia of our day-to-day, clouding our vision for what is possible. But if we rewind time to a simpler version of life, before the bills and responsibilities came into the picture, we can see what we’re meant to...


113: The Importance of Keystone Habits

“If done, a keystone habit exponentially increases the chances at succeeding at everything else.” (click to tweet) Autopilot is an instinct. When our jobs and relationships become routine, our brain tends to shut off and just do the required motions. It’s not a bad thing that this happens—rather, it’s an indicator that we might not be striving to fulfill our potential. How we reverse this tendency is by building new structures into our day, so that we are reminded of what the greater...


112: Job Security, The 7 Ways To Be Your Company’s Benevolent Linchpin

“Being a benevolent linchpin means your skills and values are aligned with the company’s ethos so much so that not only does the company need you. It wants you.” (click to tweet) Job security is always on our minds. As technology continues to grow and get faster and faster, we are continuously met with the fear that robots are taking our jobs. But when we examine what humans bring to organizations, we realize that it’s impossible for a computer to replicate the intangibles. That’s why on...


111: Craig Handley, Why You Want Your Employees To Quit

“It's easy to feel intimidated, but if you can start accomplishing the little things—the bigger things start to become believable, achievable, and conceivable.” - Craig Handley (click to tweet) Companies are often judged by their employee retention rate. But employees who stay around aren’t necessarily the most productive workers. This complicates the employee-employer relationship. Of course, you want the employees you spend time and effort training to make that investment worthwhile by...


110: Are You Worthy of Your Consciousness?

“If we are made up of the same stuff as a rock, the only difference between life and non-life is that it is on a spectrum of consciousness.” (click to tweet) Human consciousness is our rare gift. Unlike any other organism, we have the ability to zoom out and examine our place within the greater hierarchy. However, with our busy lives, it’s easy to forget to do this. We adopt tunnel vision and lose the ability to think deeper with a purpose. On today’s episode of The MentorBox Podcast, we...


109: Cameron Herold, Why Authenticity Is Vulnerability

“When we’re just completely ourselves as humans, we resonate with other humans.” - Cameron Herold (click to tweet) Vulnerability is in. Today, our Facebook feeds are filled with people sharing personal stories. But are the people behind these accounts being truly vulnerable? Or, are they marketing themselves as someone who is vulnerable? When we implement this filter, we can start to distinguish which of the two categories the people around us fall into, and thus—who is being authentic...


108: Denise Brosseau, Ready To Be A Thought Leader?

“If you do not include diversity at the table, you do not make good decisions.” - Denise Brosseau (click to tweet) Employees no longer need to be at the office. Laptops, smartphones, and the internet empower the worker to be something much more powerful than he/she was 15 years ago. Thus, leading a group of these more powerful people requires a much more powerful leader. The recipe for effective management used to call for checklists and procedures, but today—the responsibility calls for...


107: Are You Doing Things On Purpose?

“You must be able to see yourself outside of yourself. And then answer the question, ‘Am I doing this thing on purpose.’” (click to tweet) It’s the weekend. Common knowledge tells us that Saturday and Sunday are meant for relaxation, but the Gary Vees of the world say something else: that every minute we must be working. So, how do we know what to do with our time inside this contradictory framework? On today’s episode of The MentorBox Podcast, we are reframing what recreation and...


106: Originality vs. Imitation: Where Do You Stand?

“Be sure you aren’t breaking any laws by infringing on copyright, but shed yourself of the pressure to be unequivocally original.” (click to tweet) Is there such a thing as originality? When we examine creativity, we can see that constructs like language and education have us undoubtedly building off a foundation that’s already been thought of before. This is the predicament the artist finds himself or herself in. To be truly unique is both impossible and very possible. We must understand...


105: Stephan Spencer, Perfecting The Art of SEO

“I say that the only way to win against an AI is with another AI.” - Stephan Spencer (click to tweet) Succeeding online requires more than great content. We can spend all the time in the world perfecting the marketing video or blog post, but if search engines aren’t motivated to drive traffic there, it is a futile effort. Today, no matter the business, publishing content online is necessary for survival. But embedding SEO-rich keywords into the content is what will push you past survival...


104: Beth Comstock, Imagine It Forward

“I think a career is to build your expertise, but it’s also to build your capacity to learn faster. And that gives you confidence.” - Beth Comstock (click to tweet) A career is a series of lessons to learn from. But often times, it’s hard to see this big picture. At each job, we are met with new challenges that keep us up at night. The anxiety and frustration can be overwhelming, but these momentary obstacles are actually the moments that deepen our learning and understanding to become a...


103: Lee Richter, What You Can Learn From The Pet Industry

“Because there’s so many different platforms, there’s more opportunity for people to rise to the top.” - Lee Richter (click to tweet) The pet industry speaks for the changing times. It used to be that if you built a big enough business, you could just mass message consumers, and those seeking your product would become your customers. But today, a corgi owner only wants to know about corgi products. Technology has broken the messaging infrastructure, and now social media allows for niche...


102: How To Shoot Movies With Your iPhone

“YouTube is the most affordable film school you can get.” - Will Giovacchini (click to tweet) We check email, message our friends, and scroll through social media. This is the story of us using our smartphones. But the camera inside a smartphone offers something far greater than what we’re using it for. We can actually shoot professional quality visual content (photo and video) with just a few taps on our smartphone’s screen. On today’s episode of The MentorBox Podcast, we are joined by...


101: Do The Right Thing: Why It’s Easier Than You Think

“If you were to compare yourself to an ideal version of you—most of your problems are so comically easy to solve, you’ll end up embarrassing yourself.” (click to tweet) Doing the right thing sounds too simple. In the pursuit of self-help and self-development, we often find ourselves in the rabbit holes of complex, over analytical thinkers. But what if the best way to move through life was as simple as locking into as reductive as of a mantra as, “Do the right thing.” On today’s episode...


100: Lucas Conley, Why Your Brand Must Have A Social Conscience

“What is it that great brands do, that is different from what we see as branding?” - Lucas Conley (click to tweet) McDonald’s can ask Wendy’s, “What do you think about Trump?” And then suddenly, Wendy’s has to voice its stance on the sociopolitical climate. It never used to be this way; corporations would hide behind the mechanics of the marketing and advertising machine. But today, a company must voice its authentic message to the market through the megaphones on social media. On...


99: Overcoming Paralysis By Analysis

“You must make the evolution of your brain a sacred time. The same as you would not miss dinner—you must not miss learning.” (click to tweet) When we don’t pursue our goals, our minds spiral. The energy and ambition that wants to push us to a greater future gets displaced to areas it doesn’t belong. We begin overthinking our situation, second-guessing our relationships, and crafting stories about why we’re not doing the things we want to be doing. On today’s episode of The MentorBox...


98: Law of Attraction, Why Your Success Depends On Your Mindset

“If you believe in something strongly enough, if you think about it enough, it will become real.” (click to tweet) They say that the world is a confusing place. Is that true? Or are we just letting external stimulus dictate our perception of it? When we mindfully choose to perceive the events around us in a more positive and thoughtful light, our reality becomes simplified. On today’s episode of The MentorBox Podcast, we are discussing the law of attraction. In our pursuit of success,...


97: Tyler Gage, How To Be The Scrappy Entrepreneur

“Our goal would often become: what do we need to do in the next 3 months to not have to call our parents to bail us out.” - Tyler Gage (click to tweet) Some companies are started in a vacuum. The founders draw up a business plan, seek out investment, and go to market on the gamble that their idea will fit into the market. And then there are the companies that constantly push their product to the public, and iterate based on consumer feedback. Which company does better? On today’s...


96: Mike Robbins, Why You Should Be Yourself At Work

“You don’t have to be vulnerable. But if you’re not, it’s going to be 10x harder for the people on your team to be that way with you.” - Mike Robbins (click to tweet) Monday morning means back to work. And as we sit down at our desks, we’re faced with the question: why does this feel the way it does? Over the weekend, we laugh and hang out with friends, and at work we find ourselves rigid and straight-faced. Tailoring dimensions of our personality for the workplace is inevitable, but just...
