122: Change Your Identity, Not Your Actions

“You replace ‘Saturdays are for football’ with ‘I am someone who works on my photography business for 5 hours every Saturday.’” (click to tweet) We know what we need to do. Start a website, get some customers, attend a few networking events—that to-do list in the back of our heads is always yelling at us. Yet for some reason, we can’t initiate the momentum to start that business, side hustle, or art project. On today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast, we are discussing how to build good...


121: Cut Out The Negative Influences

“You will never have the energy to reach out if you’re poisoning your mind with the filth of negative friends.” (click to tweet) Look around you. Conscious or not, the personality traits of those around you will inevitably be absorbed by your own personality. While this thought might induce discomfort, it’s meant to be motivational. We have the power to choose who we become by choosing the people around us. On today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast, we are discussing the importance of...


120: Choose Your (Digital) Inner Circle

“On our own, we’re nothing. You may survive, though certainly you will not thrive.” (click to tweet) Social media is complicated. It is both an invasive tumor and the most powerful tool currently available. If we’re not conscious, the meaningless life updates will crowd our feeds and our minds, paralyzing us to do anything useful with the tool. That’s why we must make the deliberate effort to curate the content we bring in. On today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast, we are discussing...


119: Are You Willing To Wait?

“Patience is the key ‘how’ which unlocks the ‘what.’ It is the underlying mindset on which the rest of the edifice stands.” (click to tweet) We know the formula. If we work hard and take care of ourselves, success is headed our way. But the challenge is accepting the timetable that this sometimes takes. Patience, if harnessed correctly, is the key to unlocking your potential. That’s why on today’s episode of the Mentorbox podcast, we are talking about patience. In our world of instant...


118: Be A Robot

“Create your ideal day. Create your ideal week. Then check, check, check, check, check. Become a robot.” (click to tweet) To-do lists are supposed to get checked. But so often, we transfer the unchecked onto a new to-do list, only to then half-complete that one again. This happens in all areas of life, from the gym to our side hustles, we can’t seem to get a grasp on executing the tasks at hand. The reason for this is a lack of automation. We leave too much of our day-to-day up to...


117: Find Your Purpose

“Your purpose is the big problem you want to solve before you die.” (click to tweet) Can we really find our purpose? The reality is that we have to do our jobs to make money to put food on the table to then continue working our jobs. Nowhere in that cycle is there time for “finding” our purpose. And even if we are able to carve out time on the weekend to pursue that side project, we’re then met with the tidal wave of anxiety surrounding working on something for no pay. That’s why on...


116: Why Your Big Goals Need Smaller Goals with William Shewfelt

“The more you love it, the more you’re passionate about it—the more action you’re going to take on it.” - William Shewfelt (click to tweet) Dreaming is dangerous. It’s easy to make peace with our current realities by imagining how the future is going to be different. While this might seem harmless in our day-to-day, it can quickly tumble into a loop of inaction if we’re not careful. Instead of dreaming, we can seek out other ways to route our surplus of thought. That’s why on today’s...


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...
