"All the old shows are there. And if you're looking for a real old show, they're all there, but sometimes they're tricky to find, but just if you just Google Jason beam and whatever guests you're looking for, I feel like 8 times out of ten, that'll get you, that'll get you there, or libsyn will have it as well. So that archive, which now is, I mean, God, what are we at here? We're at 600 and I think this is episode 6 O 5 or 6 O 6. Of this is 6 O 5, and that's since we made the move from the bed America, and that was 940, so we're at like 1540 shows. Huge. Huge archive for you to peruse and look through. What else is on my little note sheet for stuff I wanted to talk about. Well, clearly I had her come back clear a year had her come back down at fairgrounds, I thought it was impressive. I try to never get too overexcited about when a really good horse comes back with like a solid allowance win. I thought that was a pretty decent feel for that allowance. In fact, I think you can argue it was a stakes level caliber race. I saw Phil Bon Giovanni, who had micro cap in the race, even tweeted to, I mean, it was DeMarcus hirsch, but it was to somebody said, I thought we were, you know, entering a little allowance and we showed up in a graded stakes race. Well, I mean, you ran against the, for sure, a great one type horse. She won by 6 and a half, she was one to 9, ten cents on the dollar, and scored very, very easily. Joel Rosario in there to ride. And I didn't think too much to glean other than the fact that she looked good. And you know, I think if you're a fan of hers, I thought it was interesting what Joe said yesterday about Aspen and his horses as older horses and some of the successes he's had with horses who were good at three. But then really took that step forward as older horses, especially in regards to echo Zulu obviously who was very good young and the fact that he's not in a hurry. I mean, that was kind of one of the primary questions I wanted to ask Joe was like, why aren't we just seeing her? For the first time in mid March. And by the time that race is run, late March. It's funny we're talking about that race that's being entered soon, but through that ten days. Keep forgetting about that. But yeah, clear. I thought very, very good. I mean, you guys don't need me to say that, you know that it was a good comeback and obviously going to set her up for much more and bigger races down the line as we get into the spring and into the summer. So no surprises, no shocking, you know, she had to wait for she had a little bit of traffic there. She was last early on and had to wait and as is the case. When you're on much the best, you can, you can get away with getting blocked or waiting for a little while. And I feel like 9 times, well, let's say 7 or 8 times out of ten. If you're on the best horse and you're stuck at the top of the stretch, I feel like usually there's going to be an opening for you at some point. It might not be right then, but it's common. And I thought it was, if I was a fan of hers or a cheer, I wouldn't have been concerned. And once she kicked out, you know, if she flattens out then obviously you get concerned, but she was she was much the best, much the best, and never endowed for a clear year's return. Kind of, I thought spiced up a Wednesday afternoon, you know, not a ton of big race action going on then, but yeah. Didn't want to talk about a story that appeared in the daily racing form. Mary rampini did a story on George Bryant, who is a new trainer. We have had George on the show for a horse player Thursday, George is a horse player based in Texas. He moved into the content creation space. I know he has a podcast and they have a website and stuff force racing destination. I believe is the name I'm thinking off the top of my head, but I've talked to George a couple times over the years and always been a super nice guy and George is since November has been battling oral cancer. And I had to have some pretty intense surgeries and all that kind of stuff. Well, Mary did a nice article about George because he decided to, you know, I remember seeing a tweet because I follow him on Twitter and he tweeted, I guess it was a couple of weeks ago, maybe about passing his trainer's test. And I know I always thought because he, his dad was a trainer and his dad was George Bryant. And so I always thought because Georgia, I kind of saw him on social media and got to know him a little bit. I thought he was the dad that was the trainer. And then we had him on the show and came to find out that he kind of worked for his dad at the time. He was kind of a stable manager and then in a horse player. He's also a member of the Texas thoroughbred association and all that kind of stuff. And so George had the surgery, like I said, go read the article for Mary rampini and follow George on Twitter. If you want to kind of follow his story, he's at Bryant HRD. Yeah, horse racing destination. That's where I was right. I was right, George. But yeah, so it kind of details everything that George had to go through. Like I said, these surgeries were no joke. And neither was the recovery, but he said it's been now a couple of months. I think January 28th that says that he got to ring the bell. He was cancer free. I remember they posted a video of that. It was really beautiful video to see. So many of us have obviously been affected by cancer in one way or another, and that that cancer free bell ring is a pretty great thing. But, you know, he said that, you know, kind of made him realize, you know, maybe this is a good time to kind of go and pursue my dream. It's something I'd wanted to do for a long time. He said, when I had the surgery afterward, I said to myself, this is my dream since I was a kid. I got to just go for it. I thought it was this great reminder of, you know,.

"I can imagine very light and dark film podcast of the mind of George can go and mini renna ablaze. It's a good one. It's a good movie keep them sure. We'd do Monday minutes. So they're all like five minutes. Our last Wednesday's are like twenty to twenty five minutes like strategies tactics then Fridays or free for alls. Those are the ones that get deep Alex Sheriff in and I just did. Two and a half hour podcasts and we're both pretty successful entrepreneur I. Think we cried like seven times. We yelled a couple of times. You know like we we the full range of human experience in that podcast. So it is a fun place to hang out. Yeah. Why I really appreciate you taking your time to share your message today and I know we brought many Dad's home with your message probably with the sledgehammer maybe even with a piece of TNT depending on where people were at their self awareness journey. Yeah it was awesome. Thanks for having me and for everybody. Thank thank you for giving me time and just keep swimming. I. Hope that episode did exactly what it did for me and just revealed a whole bunch of truth in my life I. Hope that that did for you and if you've been listening to the end of this episode that means that this episode resonated with you in that, you know that this content we keep putting out every week is making an impact and you're starting to feel those slow steps and that progress to this process of coming home and back to your. Family. So some of the big giant takeaways I loved the analogy when he talked about staying stuck in the storm, I loved the way he put it and it probably hit you when you heard that stuck in the storm because I can picture. So many different times in my life where I felt stationary inside the middle of a category five storm and I could make out heads or tails. It's like you're looking down at a compass and the compass is literally spinning. It's almost like a scene out of Jack Sparrow and you're just spinning and you're like word do I go this isn't normal two plus two isn't equaling four. You feel all laws the universe are breaking down. That was a ginormous being true to yourself having radical honesty, Michelle that's not something in language that I've used a lot but I really liked George brought it to this episode because it's something that I've been having more and more conversations with myself on in been taking bigger steps behind the scenes to get this podcast setup to do some. Big Things I'm getting ready to launch a major stuff for you guys. I can't wait to talk about it in the future. So stay tuned on the other side and keep listening because I'll make sure that you guys are the first to know about what's going on in the future at this episode really challenged me to get their recorded about a liberal a month ago but the end of September, and now at the end of October, I can say I've done some really big giant things with my life, some of the things that I've done. And said Yes to almost wanted to puke other side of head so much anxiety to saying. Yeah. So that's just an idea of some of the things. That I'm going through on my own in the backdrop but George kind of gave me that courage to have radical honesty with myself, and it just has really helped me own more of who I am and more who I want to be. But then more importantly with George talks.

"Other option. Is Not repenting ourselves and passing that on and creating it again, and you know by not feeling it, we teach our kids to be numb by not expressing it. We teach them at their feelings are wrong by not changing it. We teach them the same pattern signing shame too. That's often look parents do is like your kids are screaming over something stupid or visit toy they lost like you just tell them stop crying like you're just denying the feeling like because I is often told me like if you've had a bad day at work, you need to treat that motion of whatever you're feeling just as real as whether your daughter had issue on the playground day because both the real. World issues to them, and when you deny that you just created someone's therapy bill years decades in the future totally like that's the thing that we have to remember like you know it's a big responsibility to be a parent and I feel like I'm figuring it out every day and I like I'm getting emotional thinking about right now like how I can be better every day like how I was grumpy yesterday because I was sad and how that gets passed on through everything we do and I think the biggest thing that we have to remember liked to close the loop back to the beginning like we have to lead ourselves we have to be forgiving ourselves we have to be resilient. And we have to be willing to understand that like every feeling is a feeling and it has to be expressed and it's completely okay and it's completely normal and that's their perception just like it's ours and like you now the bad like that's that's the biggest part is like create a container, create an environment where expression is safe And that's really really going to be the best way because we have to express we have to grow, and so that was a that was something that took me. I'm still learning like I'm pretty emotional thinking about this right now like just where like.

"I can if I do something I have a chance and so I've just kind of made it my mission to honor myself like when we talk about self leadership, we talk about integrity. I had some wires crossed where. I had integrity mixed in with perfection and integrity is like just having an honest conversation with yourself. Right and you know we're trained as Marines to always be the best and be the best. But really the best is being the person that continues to grow and progress forward not what it looks like on paper or yeah when they're when the finish line comes in. So when I looked at it, I was like there were days where all I do is get out of bed. And I had to honor that. I'd to celebrate that and I'm like that's what I got today like that's what I got today and celebrate, and of course, some more would happen somedays lasts, and then there's other days where it's like, how did I produce this in a day and it took me six months to do three years ago right and you get a celebrate that as well but I think it really comes down to. Being able to lead oneself but also understanding that leadership is not rigidity. It's compassionate empathy understanding and we have to understand ourselves right? Like we don't have an unlimited gas tank. We don't have a you know a nas by that we can hit whenever we want or we end up dying and crashing, and so we have to be able to lead ourselves but check in with ourselves and be like okay. Quitting or is this really all I have today and if this is all have today like how do I acknowledge myself? What am I going to do tomorrow, but then also being able to check in and be like. Am I just committed to being miserable right now my quitting like, do I have more? Can I give more like really being okay being reflective of that place and then having the ability to understand that at some point you have to make a decision they call do right like you observe your aunt you decided you act you have to take an action and you have to move forward and so those are things that like I work on often and like I mean even this week like. You know a couple of weeks ago I. Mean I was like knocking out forty podcasts in a week videos, courses, trainings, outlined syllabuses in this week I've been like. It's been hard to open my email like just hard to and I was like that's okay and I was doing a couple weeks on my God like just putting my walking shoes on right now like I feel like an old man. But like I'm like I just need some time and like honoring that and letting that be okay. And I think when you have that level of like self leadership and integrity was self and really You know something I learned Marine Corps, which is going to sound crazy is gentleness when it comes to leading like myself and leading marines, right like having it. Okay. To have tight containers with padded walls. Right and that's kind of how I see how I lead myself and and those are the things that I think about a lot. When I move forward and and realizing like you just said it and and I think this is something that so imperative to understand that. There is no finish line, and if you chase on, it's just pure misery because number one, we don't ever..

"In Lakewood, you said you were running from that relationship with yourself and I can only imagine that transition was probably. Fifteen fifty times scarier than going down camp because I had to face yourself as a drill instructor real. Joke. Yeah. Camps said tell everybody I'm like we gotta remember that like our biggest enemy lies in our head. It knows are demons are fears our insecurities and every ounce of it, and you know one of the things that I I'm grateful for. Is that you know I spent twelve years in active duty and I swore I was going to do four and then get out and I, hated it like I. let me be really clear everybody I loved being a Marine I hated the Marine Corps and I mean like. viscerally, Lake viscerally hated it and. But the fear of going back to where I came from was always greater than the fear of staying in. So I was stopping her enough to reenlist and reenlist and reenlist and what I will say. Is that as time went on and became a staff NCO I became a you know I was I was a staff sergeant in a gun he select and I started to get up I started to see the game and seeing the game from that perspective allowed me to start to really identify like what I had been through and what I had. Processed and who I had become in the Marine Corps and starting to realize that it also wasn't my identity but I choose to use it as a tool, and so you know after twelve years. I wasn't so engrossed in engulfed that like it owned me because I had a lot of dissonance being created I'd say probably from like your six on where I was like counting the days till retirement I'd fourteen years left that I had a countdown count it right? I'm like, okay thirteen years six months thirteen years, three months, right? Like I was going there but I was I was already starting to. I'd gone through that process and I feel like this happened to me in the Marine Corps like you know you go through boot camp, they break you down they train you to give you an identity gives you this level of confidence that's required to do the job that we do in the small numbers that we do it, and then you start after that point. If you stay long enough, you start to find yourself in that identity and then you start to see them as almost like a suit that you put on or like jekyll-hyde or Clark Kent Superman, and I remember like I got to this. Point in my career it was like, okay I'm putting my uniform on. It's time to be a marine today I wasn't that guy that it was like, Oh, I'm a marine twenty, four seven like it started to get more and more distant with each other and I was like, yeah, I'm not wearing a high and tight I'm not talking my damn shirt my pants on a Saturday afternoon I go to the beach get the hell away from me but the moment I put that uniform on I was in like it was like the switch was flicked I was in the cage and I was like, let's go. and. So I went through some evolutions and so you know the transition out..

"Should put it up on this website called Click Bank, and sell it like how do I do that? Two, thousand ten and I asked him what to charge is at twenty seven bucks I'll never forget I, put it up and like within the first three days I made my yearly salary marine after twelve years and I was like I'm out whatever I've no idea what I'm doing I don't know what this but I'm out and serendipitous Lee enough like three weeks. Later, the board came back and they medically separated me three weeks after that after twelve years of. And so I basically went from being a marine to being food blogger and entrepreneur overnight and had no idea what I was doing. But I figured I would figure it out on the way. It was a new place to hide all my pain, right? So I didn't process any of the war, any of the trauma of the death, any other suicides? Any of that stuff I was like, Oh, I'll just go pour my energy into this new thing, and now become addicted to be an entrepreneur and it worked for a while became massively successful that became a bestseller number one in the world couple million social media followers five, million, a month my website you know made a multi seven figure business. And then know then avail crash down and you know I ended up in hospital with PTSD depression, suicide ideation tendencies like and the whole world came crashing down and so then I had to really start doing the work work and at this point I had a family, my wife was pregnant. And so I walked away from that company and I went dark for two and a half years. Three years deleted social media changed my phone number changed my email and fell off the face of the planet and started doing the real work. So I started doing like amd are plant medicine I did meditation added breath work did. A lot of things and I started to really heal my childhood and as well as like come to terms and grips with like what I'd done of the military, what I'd seen what I witnessed and start building this new life, and in that process realized I had a skill set for digital marketing. And people wanted it, and so people started hiring me as a consultant to teach them what I had done with that company, and so then I became a digital marketing consultant and started working with companies like Adidas entitled and made in on it and men's health and very quickly became a very successful digital marketing consultant and then. Continue that now, and then now I just spend my time helping entrepreneurs build and scale.

"I really had two choices when all this stuff happened than it was either stay stuck in the storm and like just punish myself or do something about it and it. It's not easy like I'm not sitting here being like, oh. Yeah. It was so great when my wife was eight months pregnant we were two weeks away from bankruptcy and she told me to move out and live in a hotel that I was. So stoked that I was GONNA, make it back like no, that's not what it felt like. But. It felt like if I do nothing, there's zero chance that I'm going to change anything and I can, if I do something I have a chance. One. Fire. Coming.

Welcome back to military veteran dad episode ninety, six days episode with George Bryant is going to crack everything you know to be true because rare out of the gate George. Just lays her right on the open in explains who he is who he was and how he got to where he is today. So I'm not going to go ahead and steal out of just under because man this episode just blows me out of the water as I and listening to it it was almost difficult for me to keep going through the next question because. I had to process everything that was going on. It was extremely emotional for me because he just has a story and opening up the way he did it's very difficult to not see your life and to see some pattern or see some similarity in a positive by George going I with his story, there's a data out there going to be able to go second. And share historic made with a close friend, a battle buddy or hack just even acknowledged some things there. Because often times with military dads do is just lighter ourselves that everything is good fine and it's neither good nor fine. So I know that George episode is going to do that.

"What are you doing and I was like I don't know I just kept going just kept going and then there's other days where he's like I need three and like I can give you one I, deliver one I respect myself my intuition that guidance I go fill the tank and then I make sure that I'm ready to go at and Jeff. Spencer. Who is one of my dear friends is a mindset coach. He's responsible for a hundred plus gold medals at the Olympics. And he's been to the Olympics. But Jeff tells me every time. He's like the reason. Olympians are great as they only perform at one hundred percent once every four years. Yup they trained to seventy line. There's too much online seventy percent every single day. So they can keep training and keep training and keep training, and so you have to make sure that we're playing the long game like this is the long game right and when you play that way like Oh yeah, I could get all this done today. I'm like, yeah. But then you can't get anything done tomorrow exactly or you can, and then you end up presenting with I struggle with that sometimes when I compromised my quality of life to get to a a goal or maybe it's just not even a goal just target I'm trying to hit once I hit that target and that's what you're doing. You're scary scary because if you don't hit it and it's like all give myself next week in what you're doing is you don't realize you're telling your brain. It's okay, Yep and The next thing. You know you're like, okay. Well, I couldn't do this every once in a while compromise at now is a non fucking negotiable we'll. See. This is my best military reference for this if you're shooting and marksmanship and you stare at the target what happens you looking down. And hit the target getting. Everybody, listening if you're not familiar with the marksmanship when you're using the sights on a weapon that target has to be blurry to hit it, you have to rely on only you your sites think about pilots that fly at night to pilots look at the runway or two pilots look at the controls and the instruments right we. Live in this society perpetuates set your target focus on your target, hit your target. But the truth is that you can't you have to focus on what you can control. It's like literally putting yourself can Matrix Yep and you're going so slow. Everything else is moving so fast but outside, but I am moving I can this movie so slow for me I Wasn't that movie Kevin Costner, Kevin Love game with Kevin Costner Yeah..

"Have you money Monday everybody. Welcome back to another episode of the Women Effect Podcast. I'm your host Chris Ross by four to six weeks ago. I had an opportunity to sit down with Mr George Bryant and before start sharing with you a multitude of reasons on why we wanted to have this great mind come on our show and bless our audience with. Some of his accolades and some of his struggled and some of his many successes that he's had in his life and business in a lot of different types of industries to be honest with you touch back. We're not hearing second. It's important for me mention especially during this time bizarre time that we're having experienced in the world, the people going through a lot of challenges, and perhaps it's better to change the narrative to view as an opportunity to I accept and learn to grow from these challenges you'll quickly learn his. Show why this episode hit home for myself in general sometimes in life you're driving forces don't come from the greatest memories of your life if for some of you that might be really hard to deal with but George has a very simple formula that he lives by in for us being men were taught at a very young age that is not appropriate to be vulnerable but having the courage to overcome something like that and focusing on the four as awareness acceptance action and accountability, you will be able to propel yourself forward. To be at peace even at all the traumatic experiences George has been through he's able to find peace each and every day, but it takes work hard work each and every day because the healing process, the healing process, you don't just magically become healed. No, you were in a healing process to the day You Die Georgia. Father Husband amazing. Friend United States Marine veteran. bestselling author multiple seven-figure earner in several different industries, and those are the reasons we invited him to be on our show. Got Something else special when we recording this episode of our listeners and you've been around show long enough you probably have heard me say that we live in a causing effect world. There's no luck involved over seven months ago I've been going through something personally myself vulnerable moment I'm going to share with everyone. That I've had to go back in, put in the work, have a Lotta coverage and do something I've never done before and realign myself and not just for all the other people that are involved in my life and all the businesses, no family and. Not, because of all those things I, have it do it for selfish reasons for myself it for me to become the best version of myself it took me to take that first step in George mentions in this episode is being aware accepting taking massive action and holding myself accountable even when I didn't want to, there's a mathematical formula to this that I try to break down to a really simplistic level. So what we pay a tidgy to and then give intention creates the coincidences in our lives. And coinciding is a mathematical term to me and it's not an accident. We were blessed to have this conversation. So any more delay let's go ahead and bring this gentleman on and I really hope that this episode is going to be received well with our audience because it made such a huge impact on my life at the right time before I bring on today's guests if you're watching us on youtube mixture to subscribe and hit that notification, bow..

"Just to give you numbers that one email sequence when it was standard was recovering about one hundred and ten thousand dollars a month when I wrote mine. It started recovering multiple seven figures a month. So I'm talking about a difference of three million dollars by changing three emails by understanding human psychology and human relationships and not being it about me and the purchase and so those are a couple of tangible examples that I can give you that. Just come right off the top of my head. Okay that's phenomenal. I'm curious about the social media. Part good going back death so realistically a solo poor real real small business. Two to three people slugging it out every day How can they scale that concept of? I guess that's the right term had the concept of going into your favorite social media platform every day and common genuinely commenting on other people's posts and stuff like that to develop a relationship is or. Is it realistic to think you can scale it or Yep Yeah? That's a great question. Here's what's funny. It's the only way you can scale it. That's what's getting in there and getting your hands dirty and being like listen. It's like don't tell me that you want a happy marriage but yet you're only willing to come home once a week right like like you get out what you put in. And here's what's not at civilize caveman. When I walked away I had between instagram and facebook. I had seven hundred seventy thousand followers. We would get on average two to three thousand comments and messages a day. I would personally respond to eighty percent of them myself and it would only take about two hours a day and this is a perfect example. I give people I did one live video on select caveman that had six and a half million views and I got sixty five hundred comments and I did this in Akita and I said how many of you would love to do a live. Eighty six and a half million views. Everybody hands it goes up. How many would love to have six thousand comments posts? Everybody's hand up and I was like how many we'd love to make a half a million dollars in a video and of course everybody's hand goes out bright and then. I said how many of you would respond to every comment and nobody's hand goes up and let me ask you again. How many people would like to make a half a million dollars in a video? Everybody's hand goes up like how many people would respond to every comment. I'd like to smart. People put their hands up and I was like. I made a half a million dollars on this video because I responded to every single comment without selling anything six thousand of them six thousand of them. It took me eight hours and I said one of you. Tell me that you wouldn't work eight hours for half a million dollars and nobody would and I said. But here's the secret. I've been doing this for eight years to earn the right to make a half a million dollars in a video because I never got off of it and we responded to every comment from day one and the thing is companies don't exist without customers but yet people ask me how they automate relationships. You can't and you shouldn't try because the nature of that thought is a self sabotaging business cycle because you tell me that you wanna make six figures. Seven figures eight figures my great. Who's paying for it like well? Our customers I'm like. Oh the ones that you don't. WanNa take the time to respond to. Can you imagine walking into a car dealership just to window shop and they ignore you the whole time No right so the question isn't how can I automated? It's like how can I automate everything else? They creates more time for me to be in a relationship with what matters which is my customers. Because they're the ones that are going to make me a seven eight nine ten figure company and so what you think about it. We're not talking about writing novels paragraphs we're talking about letting human needs right so if you know or familiar with psychology maslow's hierarchy of needs right. Well when you think about the online space just summit up at the only three things you need online or human beings need to be seen heard and respected right and everything you do is training our customer on how to be your customer so you post on Instagram. And you guys I want you to share my share your number one tip to be happy every day right and you have fifty people that comment and you don't respond to any of them. You just train that customer that when you ask them for something and they give it to you that you're not willing to give it back and then you ask me. Why three weeks later. They're not commenting anymore. Because you trained them not to comment because they did what you said and then you didn't acknowledge them. You took it for granted. You didn't make them feel seeing. You didn't make them feel hard and you didn't make them feel respected and you wonder why your followers go up in your engagement goes down. It's not because you're contents getting worse. It's because you've trained every one of them that you don't care enough about them to respond. So why should they comment? But that but then flip it on the other side you have ten people who comment and you just take the time to be like. Oh my God that's amazing. Send them Emoji back. Ask Him another question. You're literally filling their love bucket on a subconscious level because you're having them feel seen heard a respected and then the next day you twelve and then sixteen and then twenty and you've trained people that when they do what you say you acknowledge reward them back which by the way is the definition of reciprocity based relationship and then objections zone exists anymore. There are no price. Objections are no funnel objections or no product objections because you have an actual real relationship and I watched people chase vanity numbers all day. Listen I have a facebook group? That's my only social media platform right. Now there's thirteen hundred people facebook group. I give away content for free every day. I generate multiple seven figures a year from that one facebook group of thirteen hundred people. It takes me less than forty five minutes a day to be in that group. The why'd you choose facebook vs Lincoln or rate question Images Rachel and South Hundred Lane reason? No there's always an underlying reason would make friend always always so this goes back to the field of dreams concept right you have to be where your customers are right and so if your audience is fifty five plus stay at home. You know grandmother. She's going to be on facebook but she's not going to consumer engage on facebook. She's going to law a long form blog. Post if your audience is fifteen to twenty five. They're going to primarily be living on TIKTOK instagram. If your Avatar is CEO C. Suite CMO COO decision. Makers those people don't live on facebook. They spend all their time on Lincoln. And so you have to go where your customers are not expect your customers to come to you so for me. I'm not going to close a consulting deal off facebook or linked in because I'm one of the highest paid I am the highest paid digital marketing on the world. Right so people that pay me. Don't have any social media right so. I spent a lot of time on phone calls and events in nurturing relationships and word of mouth but the people that are on facebook are my future ideal customers and so rather than me trying to find customers which is a losing game. I spent all my time creating my ideal customer so I give value content and and these people sometime within a year or two years. They'll join my mastermind. They'll tell their CEO about me and then they bring me in for a quarter of a million dollar intensive. Because I'm in a relationship with the people that are doing the work and moving the needle and that's where I choose to serve now recently. We've nailed facebook. We've been doing facebook groups alone for eighteen months right and Mike team looked at me and by the way guys disorder nos. I run a mastermind consulting company. A podcast all of our social media and seven other companies and. I only have one fulltime employee and I have one. Va and we both work about six hours a day and our va works twenty two hours a week and so my entire staff cost me four thousand dollars a month to have all of that done fulltime plus my time and so there's always ways to be efficient ryon and what. I found his own when I remove go from business and I stopped doing things for validation for the wrong reasons and I do them for the reasons that matter which is deepening relationships with customers. Moving the needle having intense focus it eliminates a lot of fluff right. And so what we did. Is we been running this facebook group for like eighteen months and I love it? I absolutely love it right and everyone's like I love it. I love it I love and then a few people start being like God. I love this but I would love some nuggets on instagram. And we're like okay. We're just paying attention right till it got really wants him nuggets on instagram. And then we pulled everybody and we're like hey. Would you guys appreciate if we've started posting videos and instagram stories behind the scenes of business stuff and they're like Oh my God I'd love it and so then I'm like okay so we look at it? We're like do we have the time do we have the processes? And we're like yeah. I like cool so I followed the path that my customers in ideal customers laid out for me. I didn't create something because I had an idea and expected them to come so I built it with them right and so we built these relationships on facebook and then God love it here. We're like well we can do that. We'll repurpose content will will trim it down. We'll we'll meet you there. And when there was a demand for it we created it and now we are ensuring that we can give it one hundred percent of the focus that we give the facebook group which is going to help us deepen our relationship with our customers. Give them a separate touch point or modality or Elaine will also launching a podcast right and so I tell entrepreneurs I help business owners all the time you have to earn the right to scale and earning the right to scale. Isn't you being like all some some marketing video? Or some course told me so. I heard this some conference and now we're going to be on this platform. No if you go on a platform that your customers aren't honor. Haven't demanded what you're doing is you're taking attention away from where they are. And then focusing it somewhere else and the pain of that fallout is horrendously bad. Men's really really bad dry and this is another thing I tell people. Do you know we think about anything. Email marketing social media marketing. Anything I've people come to me all the time they're like. I need more customers anymore. Koss anymore customers. I was like Oh stop. I said what's your product and they'll be like. I have a thirty day digital program Brian. I was like cool..

"But yet people think it's okay to do online. And they forget that on the other end is a human. An eighty. Six percent of marketing is word of mouth and the average consumer gives eight to ten brand recommendations or non recommendations and a sixty second conversation so I watch these companies devalue relationships and transact with people and create anti marketing machines against their company and then they wonder why their stuff doesn't work. They wonder why they get negative reviews. They wonder why things don't scale. I'm like because you're missing. The basic premise that marketing the definition of marketing is a successful long term to way value-based relationship. Not a one night. Stand where I'm GonNa take your money and not give you what I pay for ghost on you. Which is what most people do so those are a couple of things that I really really like to tell people which is also why trademarked relationships beat algorithms like I literally trademark debt. Because it's what I teach teach mastermind members my business partners and everything that you know at the end of the day. A credit card isn't making a purchase. A human being is making a purchase a human being following US. A human being is responding to our emails and I always tell people give it the family test. Would you be okay if your mother went through your funnel? Would you be okay if your grandmother saw your ads? Would you be okay if your daughter read your emails and if the answer is no I'm not okay with it either because that means it's my mother and my grandmother and my son and my daughter reading getting taken advantage of do you have like I mean those are great examples? You have like some real specific examples like we used the term hacks because it almost goes like for example. If you're talking to like a young fledgling maybe a military couple that still in the military and they get their young business or they're they're they just got out in their starting their own business or pretty young like al Qaeda do this social media digital marking stuff. Like what kind of things do come to mind when you first start talking to people like that? Yeah I love. I'll give you a couple easy. Ones like social media right. This is my favorite one. Ripe the amount of lead ISM that exists in social media right so this is what I love small business right. Let's say you have somewhere between one hundred and one thousand followers right you create content you create content and then you get upset that people don't comment right you'll get ten likes fifteen likes and nobody comments and people call me on. Nobody's commenting nominee commenting. I'm like well. Who the hell do you think you are like me? I was like women's the last time you went to their profiling commented first and then they stare at me and I was like you have to earn the right to be in a relationship. I was like if you're a single dude. Do you walk into a bar. Stand in the corner and just expect every woman to come talk to you or even every man like you don't deserve anything you don't have a right to anything if you are planning on being on social media and you post content in eleven people like it and nobody comments. It's because something was missing for you to get them to comment and I was like and most of the time. It's the initial touch point of the relationship right and I say but instead you blame them go find more followers. I'll go five more followers without realizing that you're breaking relationships and setting a really bad paradigm in the relationship and I was so for me. You have to respond to everybody right because this isn't like a. Oh like I'm just GonNa Post this and expect you to do something like you have to take people on a journey. Three years ago it took an average consumer twenty six touch points once they self identified the problem to spend sixty dollars so somebody like. I want a new way protein three years ago. I WANNA way protein. It took twenty six touch points before they committed a spending sixty dollars and they knew what they wanted. Now we're upwards in the fifty and seventy five so when you think about social media you have to earn the right for people to be in a relationship with you and it doesn't come by being an elitist or having an ego and be like. Oh I posted today. Everybody should consume it like your contents not that good none of ours is were competing with millions and millions and millions of other people and the nature of the thought is what hurts most businesses. Because people aren't there to consume the content they're there to consume the relationship and that's why they're loyal and so when you think about social media let's say right now. Your instagram gets ten. Likes opposed and no comment every single day. You Post and those ten people like it. I want you to. Click on the ten likes and that I want you to go to their profiles and I want you to leave a comment on their last post encouraging them not asking him to come follow you not asking them to comment but the actually give value. And if you do this for seven days or fourteen days or thirty days you won't be able to handle the amount of engagement that you got. Because you're actually understanding what motivates humans to be on the platforms in the first place and so social media is a really really good example for me. Another another one is With social media. I see this all the time. People like okay on social media like I'm on Instagram facebook. Twitter Pinterest TIKTOK. Bob Item like Whoa. Whoa and the guy. I just don't know why it doesn't work. I'm like yeah. 'cause it's really easy to get fulltime results from part time effort right. No you have to be all in and listen. This is my advice. I give entrepreneurs if you wake up in the morning notice. What the social media APP you openness. That's the APP that you belong. And that's probably the APP that most of your Avatar uses as well because most of US create businesses to solve our own problems and then share that result with the world. And so if you wake up and you're on instagram. Every morning please spend your time on instagram and go deep right go all the way as many levels deep as possible right and so I'll give you another example when it comes to e commerce right so Carter Banham. Sequences are the bane of my existence. Somebody adds a product to a card and then they leave and then we insult their intelligence and send them an email says. Hey you forgot something. So I didn't fricking forget anything you sucked and I'm not interested because you didn't help me solve my problem right and it's like Oh yeah. And then what's the best part is then you send them back to the same page they said no on and this is my favorite part industry. Standard people recover about three percent so that means out of a hundred people only three said yes so if I extrapolated that forward and I put ten thousand people in a room that came through your website and I said how many of you like me out of ten thousand people only three hundred hands go up and I said how many of you had a negative experience with me and ninety seven hundred hands go up and then people wonder why their business doesn't scale. You're disrespectful you're not understanding what's happening in your customer. You're not realizing that your the one that failed to complete the purchase not them and so I started this five years ago. I started teaching companies on how to do gift sequences and so literally. Let's say you come at one of your supplements to my car. One of the COLLAGEN companies. That built you had the college and you don't leave. I send you an email thirty minutes later and I said I'm sorry an email says I'm genuinely sorry because you gave me the one asset that I can never give back to you which is time and I saw that you were interested in our Collagen but for whatever reason we failed to meet the mark or it to be the right fit so instead of me sending you back to my college in an insulting your intelligence like everybody else that you shop with. I wanted to give you this free three part video series on how to achieve the same results you could achieve with Collagen but in your natural diet your sleep and your routine every single day just as a way to say thank you email to have. You watched it yet. Like I'm genuinely curious if you've watched it 'cause I want to help you and I'm totally ethically bribing you. So here's the videos again. Pay Very close attention to this part and this part and make that recipe tomorrow. Email three subject line. I'm ethically bribing you yes. I'm being honest with you. Just as we'll go straight for the jugular objection. I literally only sent you those videos in that gift. 'cause I need something from you but what I need isn't what you think. I need an honest opinion. If you could just hit reply to this email and let me know what I missed. And what was missing for you. It would be super helpful for me and my team to make some adjustments in our leadership to ensure that we can serve people like you and it would be in the world to me email four. I'm sorry I missed. All of these points questioned one answer. One basically copy and paste all the feedback. So I just want you to know. This is the last time you're going to hear about this product. My team in my commitment to you is to help you achieve. Whatever goal that you set out to achieve? You can hit reply to this email.

"Military appreciation during the May show it with using the Hashtag mission military. Thanks get out there on Social Media Post what you won't show your support and use the Hashtag mission. Military things are members of the mission. Maybe federal is federally insured by. Ncua back talk with Marine veteran. George Bryant from mind of George George Phenomenal Story. Thanks for sharing all that some really deep stuff on. We could spend probably a couple hours talking about that. But if we wanted to talk about your after your two year hiatus of basically just unplugging from everything you decide to come back in went into the digital marketing world so you're you're one of the highest paid digital marketing consultants world in the world really this point and when you came back and started digital marking. Walker's through that and in talked a little bit about how you went. Basically from you weren't really starting from zero because you've been in an done it myself. So yeah so what was pretty interesting. Just kind of like the marine mentality was. Nobody's GonNa give me what I need but we have to make it work anyways and You know that's how I built my career in the Marine Corps. And that's how I built my career you know with the company Civilized Caveman when I ran it and But through that process self taught myself everything. I self taught email marketing affiliate marketing social media website design photography a lot of different aspects in areas of digital marketing. And when I went dark like when I deleted social media and a pretty big following right like I had a lot of people that knew me I was connected to a lot of people and people started to see me and call me and during that period when I wasn't really online getting a lot of phone calls like hey. I know you're not doing this anymore. But can you come help our company do this? I'm like yeah I'll help you. I started flying all over the world helping companies you know build and scale their companies and I've worked with men's health titles Taylormade Adidas Reebok vital proteins on it like the list goes on and And it was in that process when I was dark with the world. I was doing this as a consultant and helping people do what I had done. And I learned a lot through it and I figured out a way to basically the world's of human psychology understanding NLP neuro linguistic programming and marketing altogether into one world and started utilizing it to build some really big successful companies. And I've helped people all the way from pre revenue all the way up to seven billion dollars a year in revenue and All of it came from being self taught and so really what it was is kind of my mindset was always Field of dreams is bullcrap. Like if you build it they don't come you kind of have to build it with people and so that was kind of my thing. I'm like okay. Well I didn't know I was a consultant. People like Hey. I want your help and I'm like cool and then like why would I pay you? I'm like why would you pay me? I'll just help you know your consultant. Like what does that mean like. Oh you charge money for your brain and I'm like oh I like this. I'm addicted to hearing myself. Talk like I can do this and That's really like how it was but it wasn't like oh. I'm going to build this consulting business. I'm going to do this. It was like I'm GonNa find people that need my help and I'm going to help them. And then when we're done if they decide they want more they want to pay me. That's a really good way to do business. Because we're playing. Reciprocity you and I you pay me second and it just Kinda became the way that I started doing business and through that though I started applying a lot of those same principles to Digital Marketing. You know came up with seven marketing laws. I started studying creating customer journeys. I started teaching people the conscious and subconscious Customer Journey. And how to do all this right and really work in business on a level deeper than the transaction right which goes from making one time customers to making lifetime customers and so after about two years of doing it silently For a lot of other people you know tell everybody I was like Bruce Wayne in Batman. Right like Bruce Wayne Go. You're this food blogger. But underneath the surface I was literally helping companies make millions and billions of dollars You know like the most money I've ever spent a month on facebook ads as twenty five million dollars which is kind of mind blowing to think about a month in a month about twenty five million well Zuckerberg you. Yeah I mean it's like and listen. I was lucky I created a job where I got to play monopoly with other people's money and it was a really really good job because I didn't have any risk now of course like I didn't sleep most of the time because it's like Oh my God I can't lose this money. I'm going to make it work to make it work but I got to learn a whole lot through a whole lot of experience very very fast and I I realized the ineligibility taking somebody who literally just finished boot camp and dropping him into country and being like get ready to learn. That's kind of what it felt like and But I evolved adopted pretty quickly and then after doing it I realize that most of the companies I was helping weren't really interested in helping other people. They were interested in helping their bottom line. They wanted bigger jets. They want bigger houses. They wanted more money and I was like I felt pretty empty and I was like. Why am I using this talent? I have to help people. That aren't really going to help. More people like this isn't why I do what I do. And this isn't why joined the Marine Corps. And why do I WANNA do good in the world like I've caused enough pain? I've caused enough damage and so my wife looked down in the I one day and she said baby. It's time to go help people that need the help and I was like okay. She's like go back on social media and I'm like okay cool. I just started a facebook group and I was like. I'm GonNa Break The digital marketing game because I'm going to give away everything for free that most people charge for because just like healthcare like I think I think every human deserves access to basic healthcare. I think every human deserves access to clean water. I think every entrepreneur deserves a fighting chance to know if they have an opportunity to win without having to pay for it and I've watched way too. Many people take anywhere from a grand to a hundred thousand dollars from people and give them nothing and put them into dead in cash out their 401K's and I was like you know what I can't teach the stuff that I teach and live differently. And you know. Human beings don't pay for products. They use products to vote with their dollars to pay for access and accountability. And so I was like if I give away everything for free. I'm going to build a community of people. I'M GONNA help a ton of people and I feel like once they win and get momentum. They're going to be more inclined to work with me in the first place. And that's Kinda how I built my model and so far. It's been working really really well. I now own eight companies. That all came to me for free You know I own a supplement company diaper bag company a protein bar company a couple of digital marketing companies. And I. I literally spend all my days everyday. giving away three to four hours of content for free to help anybody in business understand marketing. The psychology of marketing social media offers paid media search every every strategy and tactic that you could ever have but always built on a solid foundation and so You know when I when I think about that and I think about you know people that listen to this and one of the things that I see most businesses struggle with. Is that one of the things that I focused on the most. When I hope people is getting really really clear right so the analogy would be. Don't be a sniper rifle a shotgun and you know understanding that you don't need funnels you don't need automations. You don't need software like buying a gym membership. Doesn't make you skinny going to the gym. Makes you skinny if you buy software and services and tools doesn't make your business work it actually over complicates them. It's the relationship with your customers. And what you do in the journey that you take them on. That makes it work and so I basically told my team last year. I said I wanNA break the digital marketing system and I said so. Here's what we're GONNA do. We're going to take everything that we know we're going to give it away for free and all those crap. Excuse my I myself although I know I was like. I don't know if you have an explicit podcast. I'm doing really good Adult all the all the crap on the Internet. They're going to have to do one of two things. They're either going to go out of business and stop stealing from people or they're going to have to up their game actually deliver on what they promise and so we started that about a year ago. We literally post videos for free every single day in a facebook group. Which is you know when you go to mind of George DOT COM. You get all of this stuff for free in our facebook group and then now we're launching podcast and a youtube channel and I literally every day post or create anywhere between a a three and a thirty minute video for free on different aspects of business. How to do certain things how to scale certain things how to fix things and and we cover all of it because you know entrepreneurs and especially small to medium businesses are what makes this world run and without us people's lives don't change without us. Economy doesn't run without us. The world stays this aim. And it's not the big businesses right and and when I say small to medium. I'm talking up to like five hundred million a year. Because that's what's considered mid cap on on the bay on the big side right and so you know. My mission is to help anybody. And it doesn't matter if you're pre revenue or doing a billion a year because when you focus on the right things the right strategies tactics foundations and principles like you have a guaranteed chance of success. You just got to be very intentional. Methodical about what you do. And that's kind of how I how I see Digital Marketing. And and the one caveat. I'll say and this is one of the things I asked people all the time people like how do you learn this stuff and I was like well? I taught myself ninety nine percent of it and I said but I'm not a genius. Not The brightest Cryan in the box right. Like I'm tenacious am stubborn right and solve like. I'll do it until I figured out and I said but you know one of the ways that I look at digital marketing is that most people get wrong and most people get it wrong because they think digital marketing is different than being in a relationship in person. And it's not and so like one of the things that doing like if I owned a grocery store would this make sense and I'm like oh no so like so. I probably shouldn't do online and like I'll give you an example. I love this one. Can you imagine if you went to the grocery store? And you weren't on isolation or whatever's going on went to the grocery store and you went to buy a dozen eggs in the you paid for and then you took two steps like wait. Do you want a dozen more? I'll just add to your credit card. You no I just bought a dozen and then you walk three more steps like wait. I'll give you four dozen for half the price like we'd get arrested for assault right.

"I teach healing modalities and personal development and You know to say it was rough as an understatement. I look at it now and I'm smiling as we say this because it's really nice to be able to look back but you know there was a good period of like six years where it was hard to even pick my head of. It was hard to look back to see where I was. It was hard to look forward and figure out where I wanted to go. It was hard to process that I wasn't a marine anymore that I wasn't you know a leader of fifty five marines that I couldn't identify myself with those and and really what was hard was processing all the trauma processing the death processing the loss processing the fact that I still talk to all those marines families and see their kids getting grown and raised and I see their mom being single moms and you know those are the things that I work on every day now and so I turned all that energy into service and I now sit on the board of a couple of nonprofits for veterans where like healing. Our heroes is one of them. Were We make documentary films? And then we use that to fund veterans getting Free Stem Cell Treatments for their traumatic brain injury. Kyle Quist and will higson One doctor and one former state forces marine Run that company. We donate forty thousand dollars treatments for stem cells. We take them on journeys and so now. I've just used my experience in my past and now my new life and job and business to support veterans and change the conversation as much as possible. And that's the shortest summary that. I could give you of like a good eighteen years of my life. Wow that's unbelievable. Story Georgia I think you did it all without taking a breath. That was like fifteen minutes and you didn't even breathe once I did. I know it's it's pretty insane. I do this a lot. I'm like I'm pretty good at breath work. Now you're on like a fifteen minute roll man but you eloquently just walked all the way through it without me having to say thing so but I will say this is a good stopping point It's the point we're gonNA take a quick break and we'll be right back. No one is more reliable and committed than the men and women in the military. That's why since nineteen thirty three navy. Federal Credit Union has been committed to being there for members to all of Life's challenges and they have been there for me and my family have been a member for over thirty years navy. Federal Credit Union was with us through all the PCS moods. All the deployments peacetime and wartime and to this day over thirty years later..

"My parents signature to depp in and I shift boot Camp July. Twenty ninth of two thousand and two to go Paris island so I went into the Marine Corps Pretty Pretty broken not really done any worker healing on much of my childhood. So I just stacked know. A very structured but disorganized Life in the Marine Corps on top of it and so actually ended up being the honor graduate at Parris Island then I went to marine combat. Training became the honor Marine Combat Rating. And then I went to mos school and I went for Tom. So a forty sixty six in the beginning and then we shifted to. Oh six and so. I was a marine and I actually graduated first in my class there and got to pick my duty station which was cherry point and then as soon as I picked my duty station I got. They're checked in the mass against. It's like we're looking for somebody to go to. Somalia and I was like I'll go because you know. I just wanted to run as fast as I could volunteered. My Way Malia Actually spent thirteen months in my life in Somalia. I was there for seven. They extended me for six and That's where the fun really really began. And so I was full on Camarena. Meritoriously promoted All Up to corporal at that point spent thirteen months there and then in December two thousand four was lost. Both my legs to exercise induced compartment syndrome ended up staying in country in until they brought me home in. May of two thousand five and On my post deployment physical like the day we got back they did an MRI. And I was on the operating table about six hours later My Chop blood clots everywhere so I ended up having six emergency surgeries. Spent twelve months in wheelchair went through to limb do boards and then they looked at me at the end of the second one. They're like we're going on your third and at the end of this kicking him out and I was like okay. I was more scared of going home than I was fighting through pain to stay in and they are like we're going to amputate your legs and like no you're not and so. I basically ballooned up almost eighty pounds because I was sitting in a wheelchair and My master's look me dead in the eyes and he's like you have sixty days to pass a of tea and lose the weight or you're out and It kinda put a fire into me. I ended up passing a PF t barely talking barely. I think I ran a twenty seven minute. Three Mile pull ups and crunches were easy but could barely walk still and that they gave me some leniency. Put me in just to keep me accountable so I could lose the weight and then I don't dropping the weight and about thirty thirty days after the fifty took about ninety days to get back with higher standards pretty aggressively and then it lit a fire in me and I kind of became addicted to working out and fitness. And so this point I was married. Touristy promoted a sergeant and then Stayed in Basically ran a half ironman. Did A try start. Doing triathlons became literally of black belt. At Mc map started going for my instructor trainer. Became you know. Little whatever the SWIM CALL IS ABOVE WANDA. The the rescue swimmer one. I did that like I basically just set my sights. W W S Q. Yeah it's been it's been eight years right so it's been a little while and so. I basically set my side on being the best at everything that I could do and I volunteered for everything and then ended up getting transferred to penalty not to penalty getting transferred. Takebe spent three years in Kebe during that time My Dad got sick with cancer. I ended up getting a humanitarian transfer to a reserve unit in Rhode Island Took Care of my dad for six months at that point. I was promoted to staff sergeant So I made staff sergeant in five years and eleven months and stayed. There took care of my dad lost. My Dad adopted. My brother moved him back to Hawaii with me Three weeks later. I got orders to Pendleton checked in the penalty. And they're like. Hey you're going to ninth calm and you're going to Afghanistan so pumped and really have much time Did a six month workup went. Afghanistan is the COM chief for Alpha tune in night com camp. Leatherback FOBS missions their ended up getting pretty hurt In work ups and out there ended up having seven concussions in two years so had traumatic brain injury some bleeding on my brain unfunny circumstances that happening country and So did my deployment. There found cross fit out. There are found Paleo really like Kinda took control my life at this point. I was running three hundred. Pf TS three hundred. Cfc's I was running. Pto'S THE COM chief for nine Combat Talian and Came back and on the on the back trip of Afghanistan. They looked me dead in the eye and they said listen. You'RE NOT GONNA make it if you stay in for eight more years and They're like your legs your head your body. Ptsd BLAH BLAH BLAH. So they started a MED board is in twenty twelve twenty twelve and they moved me to. Mukta at this point like I was still trying to stay in. I went through Staff Academy You know was in the top two it staff academy and did all that stuff and then they're like. Hey YOU'RE MED. Boards going through. We're going to process you out and quite frankly. I was petrified because twelve years in medical separation. You don't get retirement. You don't get anything and I had nothing to go back to. I had nothing to fall on and so I actually started documenting my food journey. I was eating while I was cooking and so I taught myself how to cook and started a website and so they came back and I think it was June of two thousand thirteen At this point I was pretty checked out in the Marine Corps. I was in zone. I was a Ghani Select My number was actually supposed to Pin June first of twenty thirteen June third. I got a message saying my package was approved and I was out of the Marine Corps as of May thirty first and so they they save themselves about twenty five grand on the way out the door by back dating my my step since I didn't get to Pin Ghani and a and I got out and I spent the first thirty days Figuring out what the Heck I was GonNa do with my life and I got out from the. Va rated eighty percent. Va Twenty percent dod so it was medically separated And then one doctor's appointment they. They gave me a one hundred percent permanent total for my injuries. 'cause I can't feel my legs from the knee down. You know get massive headaches. Concussion from the concussions. And things like that. I've had nerve blocks in stem cell treatments and Bo talks. And all those different pieces. But I'm thriving now. I'm absolutely amazing and so I started a business and I became an influence earn. Food Blogger and Really what it was. I jumped from one addiction to another right. So in the Marine Corps. It was nice because there were no days off right. There was no helmet can take a week off like I'm going to be lazy. It's like nope. I'm up at three forty five every morning. I'm home at nine pm every night being a staff. Nco With fifty five marines and And so when I got out I basically just replace that. With a new form of addiction you know structure which was me becoming an influence in a food blogger and so that was basically my Marine Corps career to the to the transition. And it's really not about it is I use a lot of the skills in the Marine Corps. Like you know my focus. The determination that drive and everything to succeed in in two years I went from literally being nobody and not having a career to one of the top Paleo websites in the world. I became a twenty two week New York Times bestseller. I launched an APP and hit number one in the world. Got featured by Apple's Atop Health EPA Twenty fifteen and built up about a million social media followers and about five million people on my website and my recipes and I was literally just hiding from people I was using social media and blogging and websites to basically dealing with what I had experience for twelve years of my life. You know eighteen months in in country you know I lost a twenty eight Marines to suicide over. Twelve years I witnessed three of them All three of them being marines and it was hard It was hard to think about the fact that like I could take you know a hundred Marines to Afghanistan and then I could bring them all home and then I could lose them five minutes for me. Yeah and it was something that that really really struggled with and I never gave myself the time and space to do the work. Never you know went to therapy. I never processed most of it. I never I just pretended like it was going to go away if I just kept working out really hard or working really harder succeeding in business that it was going to somehow make it go away and it was horrible because for about three years through my marriage and with my children. I was like an empty soul. Like you would look into my eyes and you wouldn't see anything and it was Wyoming to do this and I'm going to do this and I'm going to do this and it was like NAM and I didn't think I knew what a feel and I was I was successful on paper but I was completely miserable depressed suicidal tendencies Addicted to all the medication you know 'cause via likes to pump that down you And so they had me on everything from hydrocortisone blood pressure medication to to steroid stuff to whatever. And they're like don't move. Don't get out of bed better. You're going to pass out and don't try to do it was it was a real big big struggle and It was when my wife became pregnant with my son. Did everything Kinda hit me really. Really hard I ended up going and checking myself into the hospital just to have some time in space. I wasn't suicidal but I just needed. I needed something quick and fast and I really needed a pattern interrupting my life and so I checked myself in a about two hours and I was like. I don't belong here but this is really good for me and so I did it on a Friday so stay through the weekend by Sunday. It was like I am ready to go home ready to do the work. I'm ready to face. This and I really started exploring a whole lot of like healing modalities. Alternatively medicine breath were cold. Therapy saw knows meditation Spirit retreats and and all the things that allowed me to really heal and process a lot of the trauma came up and and in that I also realize that the business that I built was basically poisonous and I built a business that fed those addictions the dopamine validation. The everybody seeing me and I didn't know who I was. I had no idea who I was as a human eye. Naughty Hor was as a man I had no idea who I was as a father as a husband and So after about I'd say five years from two thousand thirteen to two thousand eighteen of like really intense work like cognitive behavioral therapy to two years of EMT DR I did MD Ama assisted psychotherapy for my nightmares PTSD. I didn't serve blocks in stem cells and blood transfers and like every single thing that you could imagine and it was amazing and I I made progress but I realized that I had to let the past the past and so.
