Tyler Carter, 2x Paralympian In Alpine Skiing, On His Journey To Team USA...
Sep 25 2020 45 mins  
Ep #232 - Tyler Carter, or "TC" as his friends call him, is a 2x Paralympian in Alpine Skiing. Tyler lost his right leg below the knee at the age of one due to the congenital condition Fibular Hemimelia, which means he was born without the fibula bone. Not letting this deter him, he participated in various sports and activities while growing up including basketball, swimming, tennis, dance, and karate. He eventually found his true calling in the form of alpine skiing. Thanks to a combined effort from the Pennsylvania Center for Adapted Sports and the National Sports Center for the Disabled, Tyler fell in love with skiing and quickly moved up in the standings. After being awarded a scholarship to attend and spectate the 2010 Vancouver Paralympic Games, a dream was formed to compete at the games and represent Team USA. Four years later Tyler had his chance when he was named to the 2014 United States Paralympic Team that would compete in Sochi, Russia. Since then, he has competed at the 2015 World Championships, World Cups and the 2018 Pyeongchang Paralympic Games with some Top 20 and Top 15 finishes to his name. While ski racing is a major part of Tyler's life it is not the only passion he has. Tyler has a huge heart and is a strong believer in giving back to communities. He volunteers with various organizations promoting living healthy and active lifestyles among youth, individuals with disabilities and many more.

Creating 'The Vacation Effect' in Your Business with Denise Gosnell...
Sep 18 2020 29 mins  
Ep #231 - This week on the podcast, I'm joined by Denise Gosnell, a serial entrepreneur, business strategist, productivity hacker, attorney, author, and real estate investor. Denise owns 3 companies: a coaching/training company, a law firm, and a real estate company. Through her company, The Vacation Effect, Inc. (www.vacationeffect.com), Denise helps busy entrepreneurs learn how to use unconventional scheduling and growth strategies to grow their business even faster by working up to 40% less. In fact, those same strategies are what allow Denise to work an average of 3 days per week running her 3 companies in 3 different industries, while having 2 business days per week for any creative or other pursuits she desires. But life wasn’t always like this for Denise. She used to be a workaholic who worked 70-80 per hours per week, until a house fire and some emergency surgeries gave her an attitude adjustment about the importance of living life in the “now”. She then stumbled onto the secret of what she now calls “Growth By Subtraction” after those incidents. Denise is an 8-time author and has been featured in dozens of media outlets over the years, from television, radio, newspaper, magazines, blogs, and more. She also has a new book coming out in 2020 called “The Vacation Effect”. In this week's interview, we go into the principles of 'The Vacation Effect' and how entrepreneurs can get back their time by implementing a few key strategies to shift their focus and priorities. This is a must listen for any business owners or professionals that want to get more done in less time. Don't miss this powerful interview with Denise Gosnell.

17 Year Old Coach, Shawn Swick, Teaches Other Teens To Be Positive & Productive
Sep 11 2020 31 mins  
Ep #230 - Earlier this year, I met Shawn Swick, a young entrepreneur that shared a powerful story about losing a high school classmate to suicide and how the experience inspired him to study the subjects of positivity and happiness so he could prevent other people from experiencing the same fate. Shawn, still just 17 years old, now helps other high school students and young adults to become more positive, happy, strong and productive. In this conversation, I explore Shawn's upbringing, what he's learned from his research on positivity and how parents, peers and teachers can do more to recognize signs of suicide or depression so they can address them in a healthy way.

Eric Lupton on Building a Top Pool Safety Company While "Disabled"...
Sep 04 2020 31 mins  
Ep #229 - This week on the show, I have a powerful interview and message to share from a hugely inspiring guest, Eric Lupton. Eric is the President of Life Saver Pool Fence, a company initially started by his family, which he joined in an admin and marketing capacity back in 1997. Having previously owned a boutique web design firm, his first work was bolstering Life Saver’s web presence, an area he oversees directly to this day. He became the company’s Executive Vice President in 2002, managing many of the company’s day-to-day operations, before taking over as President in early 2006 with the retirement of the company’s founder, and his father, Robert Lupton. Eric has been featured as an expert in two New York Times Best Sellers on writing effective marketing copy and his thoughts on online marketing have been quoted by publications including the Wall Street Journal and USA Today. These days, Eric is mostly sought after and interviewed by the media as an expert on pool safety. A lifelong pool safety advocate, Eric serves on the Board of Directors for the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) and was unanimously voted to take over as the NDPA Vice President in 2016. Eric also started, personally manages, and contributes to the largest pool safety page on Facebook, Pool Safety for Children, which has over 15,000 followers. Eric manages all of this while living with a severe disability, cerebral palsy, caused by a brain injury during birth, that requires him to use an electric wheelchair and need help for many day-to-day tasks. His symptoms are almost identical to those that can be experienced by near-drowning survivors. Fortunately, neither his speech or his intellect were affected.

Brandon Lyons On His Journey From Paralysis to the Paralympics...
Aug 21 2020 38 mins  
Ep #227 - This week on the podcast, I'm joined by Brandon Lyons, a Paralympian that has fought through incredible adversity to reach the precipice of the next Para Olympic Games. Following graduation from Penn State University in 2012, Brandon Lyons began his career with the professional services firm of Ernst & Young (EY) in the greater Washington, D.C. area. During his first year as a consultant for the Big 4 firm, Lyons was recognized as the Supply Chain Rookie of the Year. His professional career was off to a great start, but that would quickly change. On May 24, 2014, Lyons dove into shallow water breaking his T5/T6 vertebrae and leaving him paralyzed from the chest down. Lyons quickly took on this new challenge and returned to work at EY just four months after his accident, and even completed a marathon just five months after the date of his injury. He relocated to San Diego in 2016 to be closer to an advanced rehabilitation gym, which is where he found his passion for handcycling. He was introduced to former Ironman world champion David Bailey, and the two would ride the coast of southern California together as Bailey pushed Lyons to go faster. In March 2017, Lyons would be invited to a tryout at the Colorado Springs Olympic Training Center to earn a spot in the residence program. Lyons was awarded a spot as the first handcyclist in the residence program and would relocate to Colorado Springs, Colorado exactly three years after the date of his injury on May 24, 2017. Lyons made his first national team in 2019 and continues to work for EY.

For over a decade, Joel also served as President & CEO of Herschend Enterprises, the largest family-owned theme park and entertainment company in the United States with popular brands such as the Harlem Globetrotters and Dolly Parton’s Dollywood theme park. Even further back, Joel spent 20 years in the auto industry in general management and marketing roles, primarily in General Motors’ Saturn and Saab divisions. Joel served as CEO of Saab Automobile USA from 1996 to 2000, during which Saab experienced the best sales result in its 50+ year U.S. history. In addition, he was CEO of Amazon’s car selling partner, which was sold to CarsDirect.com in 2001. Joel received an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.S. from Albion College. As valedictorian of Albion College, Joel was a Rhodes scholarship finalist, academic all-American and two sport collegiate athlete. Joel is currently the non-executive Chairman of Orange, a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and distribution of student, youth, and next generation curriculum to over 7,000 churches in 40+ countries. He has held that position for over 20 years. In addition to his duties as chairman of Orange, Joel consults and speaks around the world on the topic of leadership, the story of leading during SeaWorld's transformation and on his book, "Love Works." Manby wrote “Love Works" to describe how to integrate “love the verb” into the leadership ethos and philosophy of any organization. This approach has been systematically proven to create organizations with lower turnover, higher employee engagement, more satisfied customers, and stronger profits. "Love Works" has sold over 100,000 copies since its’ release, and a new expanded and updated version is being released in 2020.

Can Learning Early With Games Make You A Genius?
Jul 24 2020 34 mins  
Ep #223 - This week on the podcast, I'm joined by Opher Brayer and Mark Hirsch to discuss a unique education platform called 'Games of Genius' that teaches children the foundations of how to learn. Opher, a world-famous talent coach and educator, developed this program for parents of children aged 4 and up, because the educational system hasn't changed in decades. It fails to prepare our kids for a world where robots and AI will outperform humans and replace many of the jobs that exist today. The games you’ll discover on Games of Genius have turned poor performers into stars, transformed schools around the world and enabled Opher's son to attend college at age 13. Mark is a highly accomplished executive with a string of successes in new and existing venture start-ups, product development, sales and marketing. He's a strategy-driven business leader with 20+ years of experience across multiple industry verticals spanning e-commerce, financial publishing, information products, public relations, and more. With Opher as his partner, Mark is aiming to take the 'Games of Genius' platform to a worldwide audience and turn it into a household name. In today's interview, we discuss the process behind 'Games of Genius,' why our current education models fail and how this program can turn any child into a "gifted" prodigy. Listen in for the details.

Winning With Words - Ep 4 of 5 - Never Say Never
Dec 17 2019 13 mins  
Ep 185 - Welcome to Part 4 of my 5-part miniseries titled, "Winning With Words." This episode is titled "Never Say Never" and our conversation focuses on the topic of universal quantifiers. This is a term we reference in NLP training to reference words that are all encompassing of all possibilities or none. The reality is that these words are frequently used, but rarely true. When people use terms like "always" or "never," more often than not, the statement is an exaggeration and not fully true. Today, we are going to chat about the impact of universal quantifiers to your words along with when and when not to use these to get specific results. If you missed Part 1, 2, or 3 of this mini-series, make sure to listen back to episodes #179, #181, and #183 to get the full value of this content.

Steve Cockram on Discovering Your Leadership Voice
Aug 09 2019 32 mins  
Ep # 148 - My guest this week is Steve Cockram, an international speaker, author, and consultant to top-level executives and leaders around the world. Steve is dedicated to empowering the leader in everyone. He is a subject matter expert on personality and wiring, organizational leadership, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal communication. Steve is the co-founder of GiANT Worldwide, a global leadership consultancy. He is also co-author of the books 5 Gears and 5 Voices. He has worked with companies like Ford, Biogen, Chick Fila, Lockheed and the United States Air Force. He is the creator of the 5 Voices System which has helped clients experience the following results: Greater Self-Awareness: Learn your voice and understand what it’s like to be on the other side of your leadership. Better Alignment: Discover the sweet spots of those on your team, get better aligned, and reach higher levels of performance. Clear Communication: Communicate what you mean without people taking it the wrong way and getting offended. Effective Delegation: Delegate more effectively to save time and increase productivity. High Performance: Confidently build high-performing teams, rather than taking shots in the dark and hoping people do their jobs well. Quicker Decisions: Learn how to listen better, ask helpful questions, and make quicker decisions. Steve’s passion for leaders, team communication, change management and work/life balance is clearly echoed through his books, speaking and executive consulting. He is coach to a number of CEOs and is a sought after speaker both in the US and in his native UK. He inspires audiences to create better organizations through his heart-level stories, use of humor and expertise in human interactions. Cockram's leadership and management models have widespread appeal in large part due to the multiplication effect – rather than just the leader being transformed, they provide a framework for spreading this transformation throughout organization through ‘intentional apprenticeship’. Steve has been married to Helen for 24 years, during which time they have lived in 12 different houses on two continents. They are now living back in the UK in Gerrards Cross, London with their three girls. This has helped him with his moderate addiction to Liverpool soccer (or football, in his case).

Nicholas Bayerle on Reaching an Ultimate State of Health, Power, and Confidence
Aug 02 2019 29 mins  
Ep #146 - Nicholas Bayerle, an international speaker, podcast host, and social media influencer, joins me on the show this week for an inspiring and motivating interview. In our conversation, we discuss the topic of achieving greatness and the actions it actually takes for attainment. As CEO of The Billion Dollar Body, Nicholas specializes in helping men to reach an ultimate state of health, power, and confidence. Having worked with over 600 private clients, Nicholas has identified common patterns that block men from achieving full potential success. He helps them to overcome these areas by working to align their "what," "why," and "how." Sometimes a person may claim a high-level goal, but then show a lack of interest or willingness in doing the full amount of work necessary to achieve it. In cases like this, Nicholas works to get his clients to step back from the fake illusion and to embrace realistic goals based on their own threshold of willingness. Nicholas now surrounds himself with top-tier entrepreneurs and influencers including the likes of Lewis Howes, Cole Hatter, and Jay Abraham. Through his speaking, podcasting, and social media presence, he has built a large audience of engaged followers and was recognized by Influencive as a "top 30 under 30" influencer. Late in our interview, Nicholas describes one of his business philosophies as being a broker for the success of others. He describes how adopting this perspective changed the way he approached sales and other areas of his life. Nicholas has incredible wisdom to share and this provides a glimpse into some of the amazing things that you can learn from following him further.

Adam Schaeuble on Inspiring Transformation in Others...
Jun 11 2019 28 mins  
Ep #131 - Adam Schaeuble, aka "The PHD" - Previously Heavy Dude - joins me on the show this week to discuss how he uses his personal story and experience to inspires others to transform their lives. Adam reached a low point early in his life when he was still in his twenties and tipping the scale at 327 pounds. Even at this young age, he began experiencing dangerous health consequences, so he made a decision to overhaul his life and fitness strategy. The result was over 100 pounds of weight loss and people noticing an incredible change. Rather than being satisfied with only his own success, Adam felt inspired and took what he learned form his transformation journey to create a boot camp aimed at helping others. From this boot camp he was able to produce more than 35,000 pounds of weight loss from community members in his home town of Bloomington, IN. Adam found that helping others transform was a critical component to his journey. From his experience, he started The Million Pound Mission podcast where he continues to inspire large groups of people to make dramatic shifts in their health and lifestyles. His website and Instagram profile highlight members of his community who have also achieved incredible results. He has set his sights on inspiring over one million pounds of healthy results through his podcast, coaching programs, and the Million Pound Mission Boot Camp. Adam recently started a second podcast called "Casting the Pod." With this podcast, he seeks to help other podcasts to solidify their dreams of being content producers and influencers.

Chris Burns on Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self
Apr 23 2019 71 mins  
Ep #118 - Chris Burns, AKA Mr. "Heart Fire," joins the show today to discuss how to become your greatest possible self. Clients hire Chris to hold them accountable so they can breakthrough their BS while he encourages them to be their best and achieve higher levels of personal and professional performance. Chris hit rock bottom at an early age and figured out how to bounce back stronger than ever. He has since spoken on stages across the United States, and over the last 2 years, he has interviewed more than 500 inspirational role models, influencers and leaders on his weekly, 12-hour live-streamed marathon and podcast called "Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self." In today's interview, I talk with Chris about overcoming a troubled and party-centered teenage life and finding self worth as I too went through a similar stage in my own life. Chris shares his early struggles with fitting in and the important of finding community. Chris found it difficult to let go of the shame and guilt that came with hitting rock bottom and getting arrested, but he learned that putting his past behind him was essential to be able to step into speaking and coaching along with sharing his story. He now believes that each of us can choose to make our stories mean anything. So, if this is true, why not choose an empowering meaning for your life's story. Later in the interview we go behind the scenes regarding his 12-hour marathon podcast. We explore why and how he sets it up this way and talk about how it got started. Chris will share a bit about what he has learned from having 9 powerful interviews a day, and how you can lead your own version of it in your community as a coach, speaker, or entrepreneur. It's a powerful interview so enjoy!

Expectation Therapy works to transform how you and the world communicate, perceive, and process expectations. It aims to teach you that your expectations can transform your life for the better.

Jay Gabrani - How a Father Comes Back From Loss
Mar 12 2019 40 mins  
Ep #107 - What would happen to your family if you passed away suddenly? In today's epsiode, I sit down with Jay Gabrani, founder of Prepared Fathers, to discuss this exact question. After Jay's first child was born in 2005, he jumped into the world of real estate investing. Despite several challenges along the way, Jay built a multiple seven-figure real estate portfolio. That portfolio helped him take a multi-year sabbatical to deal with heartbreaking personal tragedy when his wife passed away in 2014. This experience lead Jay to reevaluate the purpose of his life while taking a multi year sabbatical. Before his wife passed away, Jay thought he was financially prepared. After going through the experience of being the executor of his wife's estate, he realized he wasn't. Today, Jay makes an impact raising his three children and empowering Fathers to secure their Family's Financial Future as the founder of Prepared Fathers. He achieves this through his one-on-one and group coaching programs and his daily podcast A Minute with Jay. He is a frequent podcast guest and does a limited number of speaking engagements.

Are you stuck, or do you see possibilities
Dec 25 2018 27 mins  
Ep #93 - "What you are expecting determines whether you will or will not be able to see the possibilities all around you." This is a quote by Daniel L. Castro and I recently shared this on my Instagram page (@mattbrauning). When I posted this, the word from this quote that really stuck out to me was "possibilities." I wanted to do an episode this week that goes into some NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) concepts. NLP can be thought of as the study of excellence, the study of success, but it's also the study of the language of the mind. One of the biggest areas of language is called modal operators. There are several types of modal operators which is a fancy way of saying the mode in which we operate. It's how we walk through life and you are either walking through life in a world of possibility or in a world of necessity. We go pretty deep into this concept and discuss the difference between possibility words and necessity words. If you're interested in this stuff and want to learn it as part of your business, grab a pad of paper and a pen and take some notes. If it's not relevant to your business, listen up anyways because you're going to learn a lot from this discussion. This episode is dropping on Christmas Day so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our listeners.

Dave Nassaney - The Caregiver's Caregiver
Sep 07 2018 54 mins  
Ep #61 - In today's episode, Matt Brauning sits down with Dave Nassaney, a caregiver, caregiver advocate, best-selling author, speaker, and entrepreneur. Dave states that his most important role in life has been serving as a caregiver to his lovely wife Charlene. Twenty-two years ago, Charlene suffered a massive stroke that left her severely speech impaired and paralyzed on the right side. This incident led to Dave's personal journey of becoming a caregiver and it has led to his advocacy for other caregivers. For some background, here are a couple little-known stats about caregivers: 30% of caregivers actually die before their loved ones. 40-61% of caregivers have felt down, depressed, and hopeless just over the last two weeks. Caregivers often spend so much time caring for others that their own needs are neglected. One of Dave's speaking points has been to teach caregivers how to avoid caregiver burnout and how to receive self-care. Dave is the author of the best-selling book, "It's My Life Too!" Reclaim Your Caregiver Sanity by Learning When to Say Yes and When to Say No." Check out Dave's book on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2QgCM8i Also, be sure to visit Dave's website https://www.davethecaregiverscaregiver.com/ to take advantage of his free gifts being offered.

Since returning to Los Angeles, he has written two feature films, landed a pilot show with Fox, and become a stand up comic.

Can a Customer Change Their Stripes?
Jul 31 2018 23 mins  
Ep #50 - The big question asked in this episode is "Can a customer change their stripes?" Matt starts this conversation by referencing a simple three-step formula that comes from a book written by Keith Cunningham called "The Road Less Stupid." This is how the formula goes: Step 1 - Find Out what Your customer wants Step 2 - Go Get It Step 3 - Give It To Them It's the most obvious thing in the world, but most entrepreneurs will complicate this severely. Many entrepreneurs tend to sell things that they believe people need rather than asking what they actually want. The problem with this is that they fail to assess the culture and environment of their market ahead of time. This is a big mistake and Matt will share why it is absolutely critical to know the culture of your customers before getting started. If you'd like to read Keith Cunningham's full book, "The Road Less Stupid," you can find it on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/2mYyp4o The official "The Firebox Principle" hard cover book launch is coming up on August 13th in Orange County, CA. General admission will be absolutely free and VIP tickets will also be available. The VIP tickets include a signed copy of the book, early admission, a special Q&A with Matt, and VIP food and drinks.

The Avenger Drive - "This Must Change!"
Jul 25 2018 27 mins  
Ep #48 - In this episode of the podcast, Matt breaks down "The Avenger Drive" which is one of the seven drives that fuel every entrepreneur. The Avenger Drive has the catchphrase "This Must Change!"

The person becomes so mad that they decide to take action and do something to change the situation. Anger is one of the most powerful motivators that inspire people to create something. An example of an entrepreneur that created a business from "The Avenger Drive" would be Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of Lamborghini.
