056 - Understanding YOUR ANCHORS in YOUR LIFE

We all need support at times. As we continue to develop both personally and professionally during the course of our lives, we all have those ‘things’ that we can count on. What happens when the ‘things’ that we have relied upon for strength, guidance, or even just friendship are removed? Potentially destabilizing events can be thrusted upon us suddenly and/or while we sit and helplessly watch the incoming tide. In today's podcast, I dive deep into a space where we touch upon every emotion a human possesses. It's an episode that my friend, Johnny Ruppert and I have talked about doing for some time now. Only this time, it's about his journey and sharing how he dealt with the balancing of the "floating dock" (representing LIFE). Listen to this personal discussion as Johnny shares how his "Life ANCHORS" that kept the "floating dock" stable, slowly began to snap one chain at a time. Our goal with today's episode is to show that along our journey throughout life, we will need the help of others. Always remember, it's okay to reach out and ask. The support of others is what "Anchors" us and keeps us grounded, preventing us from going adrift. Johnny shares with us how he refused to surrender to the storm and made the decision to grow and adapt to form the new anchors that has gotten him through his day to day life. I am so grateful for Johnny Ruppert. As a friend of over 25+ years, I wish that I would have known MORE about what he was going through in his personal life, how he was desperately trying to balance the "floating dock" as the "anchors" were coming apart. I remember first hand when he was going through these turbulent times in his life. I was on the outside looking in, not knowing what was happening inside the mind of my friend. I am thankful to him for entrusting my platform and podcast, T20E World to share with us all his personal journey. I hope this episode makes an impact in your life. Not only to know that it is always okay to reach out and ask for assistance during those tough times or turbulent times (as we call it) but also to get professional help when you are feeling all alone and like there is no one you can trust. It's perfectly okay. I ask that you please leave us a review with comments, share this episode or share an experience. We can make this world a much better place, if we learn to continue to respect, accept and support one another. Thank you.

053 - Respect the Struggle, Don’t Struggle for Respect with Steven Cruz

On this week's episode of The 2020 Entrepreneur World (T20E World) I bring back Steven Cruz to talk to us about how to RESPECT the struggle and how to NOT struggle for respect. It is so important to not only respect yourself, but others around you too. When you walk into a room, do not just respect the people you are waiting to meet. Make sure you respect EVERYONE around you. Giving respect will help you gain respect! You can not buy respect . . . you must EARN respect. It is also important to always stay humble and grounded. The strive for respect is a journey not a destination. And as Steve says . . . "Always be true to yourself"

Although Eldine struggled, he worked anywhere possible so he could afford school and send money back home. Today, Eldine owns several successful companies in the United States and overseas in West Africa with real estate, investments, and chocolate production company.

051 - The Single Most Important Skill for Acing College Admissions and Life with Steven Cruz

On this week’s episode of The 2020 Entrepreneur World (T20E World) I am with my special guest Steven Cruz. Steven is the president of Omega Educational Consulting, INC. He is also a facilitator who specializes in educational counseling, program development, and student affairs. In this episode, Steven shares with us the most important skill for ACING college admissions and in your life. Steven explains that the number one skill is RESPECT. You need to always respect yourself first especially when it comes to starting your college career. When you start college, you have to figure out what you want to do in life. Unfortunately, we start college at such a young age that most of us do not know what we really want to do. BUT that is all part of the process of life, and when you make a decision whether it may be wrong or right, you have to learn to fail. IF you respect yourself, you will respect yourself from failing. Throughout the episode, Steven will guide you through steps on how to be SUCCESSFUL through the whole college process. He says interesting people make the most interesting applicants and his key advice is to always “be faithful and keep on working!” Steven works with all levels and starts as young as students who are in their freshman year of high school!

BE SELECTIVE … Make sure you know the crowd beforehand and dress the part because you want to REPRESENT YOU. Have a GOAL in mind and stick to it … Remember TIME is LIMITED. Have your ELEVATOR PITCH … it is important to have several pitches, for example, a personal and a business pitch. Always remember what makes you MEMORABLE and know how to tell your story. Stay POSITIVE at ALL times … Too many of us are not certain or confident so we gravitate to the negative side because its easier, but create comfort in your space and a conversation will flow much better. Remember your PURPOSE and you are there to WORK … So work the room, work the crowd, and work the individuals. It is so important to compliment, connect, thank and move on. Do NOT stay in your SHELL … You must break out of your bubble and comfort zone. How do you do that? Select 5 people and introduce yourself ENGAGE in a conversation … Make Eye Contact, smile, find the balance, and stay focused on your conversation. FOLLOW THROUGH and FOLLOW UP … It is key to take notes on each business card you collect to remember who you are meeting. Connect via LinkedIn, email, or even shoot a quick text! And most importantly … PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
