"The top of Don show. Listen, we're going to try to cipher. Some of these poles that air out this week. Some of these polls are not very promising for Donald Trump this morning. Well, hi Bill cipher through some of those in just a minute. Right now. Those 7 35 in time for tech news brought to you by nerds in a flash. You hear about the Twitter hack? I mean, some of the most high profile people on the planet. Or hacked via Twitter. Among the high profile Twitter accounts targeted former President Barack Obama and his vice president Joe Biden, Billionaires Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos and Michael Bloomberg. Some company Twitter accounts were also hacked, including Apple and Uber Thie accounts of a collective following of more than 300 million people. They tweeted similar messages. Biden's Tweet read. If you send $1000 I will send back $2000. Only doing this for 30 minutes Buttons campaign told Fox Twitter locked down the account immediately following the breach and removed the related tweet. But for hours, Twitter released few updates on Lee, saying they were investigating a security incident. The Department of Homeland Security Cyber Division did not answer whether any government accounts were at risk. There you go. That's story there from Fox News. It's Yeah, it spells bad news for Twitter, and it brings into question What kind of influence they could have on the election. What kind of influence that could have on the stock market? I mean, they were able to the hackers were able to reach 300 million people. Yeah, It's incredible. Does there's no other way to reach them now? No, No, they're obviously the influence is massive. So it's a wake up call here and what? What? The possibilities are absolutely right where the power lies, and it's in. You know, some Cheeto eaten Gatorade drinking geeks working it. Ah, Twitter, most likely who just know the right buttons to push. Listen, I don't think you should underestimate There's word this morning. If they were blackmail they were bribed into doing this. Well, maybe so. Let's I mean, this is very sophisticated. These air Not Cheeto punk sitting on their mom's couch. These these air, highly intelligent people that have a lot of power to influence still think they might like Cheetos. They might mean only the spicy Holland's love him the jalapeno about that story on my linked in page at Todd Jeffries. So Donald Trump has been hit with a barrage of poles with him, trailing Joe Biden in Florida, Pennsylvania in Arizona, and barely hanging on to a threat here in Texas. Plus Ta, there's Ah Doomsday national survey that has him 15 points behind there. And people are freaking out on the right about this night's. It should be something that you're concerned about is to take it seriously. Don't get too comfortable that you're confident that Trump's gonna win if you think he should win. Because there's a lot of changing, especially when you got the Twitter stuff that's going on and how they know these things could be influenced, But I'll be honest with you in the midst of a pandemic in the midst of incredibly horrific unemployment numbers. I kind of think that these poll numbers You look good, considering what we're going through over going any other candidate any anybody else? Joe Biden would be winning by more than 50% points in these polls, right, but but but but for the fact that there's so much support for Trump on the right It's not as bad as you think it might be the po and in you know, yeah, economically things or rough right now, But at the same time, the stock market is still going pretty dang strong. And and rallying quite well. I just think a seven point edge in Florida, a six point edge in Arizona on Trump barely winning looting a little bit in Texas. I don't think that's a big deal right now. Well and Ted all because anything can happen in the next few months. Whole needs to be done about who's participated in polls, a poll of polls and I think if that was done and done well, you would find that that probably a massive majority of Trump supporters have not participated in a poll. They don't have time and and some may be afraid. I mean, committee. We've got a kid whose family is suing the Austin school district because he got picked on and bullied for a couple of years at Austin High. There you go because he supports the president s so I could only imagine. That if ah, you're called, are approached by a poster. There's a lot of trump supporters that just say I'm not involved. Exactly. I don't know. They're afraid they're afraid because of physical violence. To say they support the president could be in l. A mother's. There's a big chunk of people that you know openly and are eager to support the president. But I think there's a large number of trump supporters that if they get that phone call about a pole there like that, Never mind. I'm not gonna participate. I have never participated in a pole ever, ever, ever. The only poll I've ever done if if it's something that just pops up, online says, Are you a trump supporter? Yes or no? Maybe I've done that. Maybe I don't know. But but but with its just one click, and maybe that was a dump. For me to do, I I don't know, but but maybe did at one time, but the majority of Trump supporters I promise have not participated in polls. Most people don't participate in any poll, depending on either side of the specials. I mean, Todd on Election Night back in 2016. Did you think that Donald Trump was gonna win? I thought it could go either way. I really thought it was a strong possibility. But I had no idea, but but I My gut was telling me yes, but it's forced the poll numbers. Obviously, the poll numbers were saying No. So we all sat down. We all sat there watching MSNBC meltdown as as a cz the country What red? And I think we're all sitting there going. What the hell just happened? And it turned out all those polls were wrong. It is 7 41 Here, it K l B. J and listen. You know, it's it's hot out there, and I know your electric bill's been climbing 23 400 bucks. Sometimes a month of you guessed it depends on your house when I want to tell you a way that you can actually lock in your electric rates and prevented from actually going higher ever.
OBJ: 'The blond is back' and new attitude, too
"Newton Noto Beckham Jr had their own red table talk early on Tuesday. No Jada Pinkett Noble Smith. But that doesn't mean that both of these two were not going to say something that got people's attention. They both used the word humble but coining the context of tired of being humble. Cam Newton said that about replacing Tom Brady, the elephant in the room with the doing the Patriots and Noto Beckham Jr soak office hat and said the blonde is back and said he is tired of being humble. He is tired of playing that game. I don't know if we're going to Jada Pinkett joining them at any time soon, But Cam knew no Dahlbeck. Um do you have there red table talk, and it got plenty of attention, Especially way they use the word humble and the way they wanted to use it being tied of being that way to satisfy others. When it comes to playing football. I don't know if you can hear my eyes rolling in the back of my head right now, But when I saw that first I'm not going to be nice anymore. I saw that I thought was that broke version of LeBron's thing with a shop like that's what I saw, if if anybody wants to do Parody of this, with Victor Cruz leading the conversation, and you've got Odell Beckham looking smug, and it's weird jacket he's wearing Todd Gurley looking like he doesn't know what's going on one side of the table in Cannes, sitting with a cigar in these in these glasses of wine all over the table in the decanter, I mean, It was well done. I'll give him that Odo back him and his production company put this thing together. It was very well. I will say it was great to hear them. Talk about black lives matter Movement and what Corona virus That's very honest things to say about Corona virus and kind of the fear that a lot of people have of playing the season. The athletes at the center of this They are the product. They're the ones who make owners millions and billions of dollars every year yet I think that we missed the mark. Sometimes these were not necessarily considering all the health and safety protocols. Ah, when it comes to them, But so that's the stuff that I actually could get down with. But when the word humble was thrown around, I felt like you know, I needed Kendrick Lamar to come in and just kind of like, walk that back a little bit, because when you talk about the blonde is back and this that and the other thing with Odell Beckham have we not been hearing some version of the same thing for the last 3 to 4 years, Freddie Even before he went to Cleveland. I mean, it's every single season is new Year new Me New Year new Me But silence the haters. Got a You know, everybody wants to be labeled. We want to label something in society because we don't know what it is. And I'm tired of being labeled. Oh, my goodness. I'm tired of hearing this is every single year Put up or shut up, bro. I can't handle it anymore. By the corner. Cronin, Finn Fitzsimmons of Freddie Coleman on Friday and Fitzsimmons and ESPN radio. I said it's for the longest time and every time he does or says something like this without a Beckham Jr It further further confirms my suspicions. He still wants to be in New York. He doesn't want to be in Cleveland. Yeah, he'll say all the right things about the organization. But if he had his way, he still be a New York giant playing in the biggest city in the world when it comes to New York because his personality fits more in New York than it does in Cleveland. He doesn't realize that if he just goes out there because to me, he has way too much talent. So have that kind of mouth promising and making those false promises would come without backup Jr. I'm with you. I don't want to hear about humility I don't want to hear about the blind is back in. All of the nonsense stopped talking about it Be about it because you had that kind of ability and talent. But I still wonder I don't want any more. He confirms it every time Courtney Every time he opens his mouth. It tells me each and every time That he still wants to be in the biggest city in the world. Whether the New York Giants or in New York jet, Cleveland does not fit the personality to me in the mind of Odo Beckham Jr so and you're putting that out there. To me. It seems like he's laying the groundwork that if eyeball out in Cleveland, I want to go somewhere else where I believe my personality is going to fit that city and clear as a great sports city. Put it back on. Gina's realized that if he bawls out in Cleveland and leads into the playoffs and end of a deep run in the play offs, he could go anywhere representing him in a Cleveland Browns, but because he doesn't leave his personality Is suited for Cleveland. He keeps putting stuff out there time and time again to let everybody know I'm a celebrity, and I'm too much of a celebrity for the city that I'm playing it now because I did not want to be traded away from the city where I started my NFL career in the first place, and it's like we've seen the story play out. I said again and again, I mean, think about some of the distractions and think about what happened this offseason with him handing out cash Tol issue players of the national championship and You know, slapping the police officer on the Mac side in Superdome, and you know all of these things. It's like he was quiet for a little bit. And there were some trade rumors before that. I mean, like it or not, there was talks behind the scenes about him trying to get out of Cleveland. I have Pete. You know, sources that I've spoken with people close the situation. I know that it's been debunked allegedly at this point, but at one point that was actually in the works being talked about. It didn't just come out of thin air, so I mean I understand where he's at right now in wanting to wipe the sleep this late, clean because, you know, by his standards, you know he didn't you know, he still was 1000 yard receiving season last year, but he wasn't where he wanted to be. I think that he had different expectations for what his first year Cleveland could have looked like. But you know, the blonde is back. Does that mean that the celebrity and all of the distractions come with it to be as you'll remember? You know that last season in New York in 2018 there were a lot of distractions. There was an interview with Little Wayne where he was talking about his quarterback and essentially throwing him under the bus that created a lot of distractions in the locker room. So I mean, is that coming with it? If you're talking about the blonde is back, because, sadly, we know that this is one of the most talented wide receivers to ever play the game. But beyond that, you know, the blonde has kind of been the demise for him.

It is something that a lot of people have questions about. and I have a question for you. Which is why? Why do you think now? Is such an incredible time to use PODCASTING TO BE A. In whatever industry someone is? Yeah and I love starting with this question because I'm I am. Of the opinion that cussing just a communication channel and medium there's video. There's podcasting there's blogging. There's email there's social. There's various forms and. PODCASTING is has its own natural strengths, and it has its own natural weaknesses when you compare it to the natural strengths and weaknesses of the other platforms in medium so. I see podcasting, being particularly important and relevant now because we're in this phase to where in person and live events are a little bit thrown into question from from covert and from you know a lot of companies are now having their workforce's working from home. and there's much more of a distributed more digital interaction format going on right now. And part of the challenge here is, it's just a time of uncertainty. People are looking for leadership. They're looking for connection there, looking for information and guidance now more than ever. They're working from home. They are not attending live events and conferences, and some of those things that they're used to in their business schedules, and so. podcasting allows for someone to be a leader to. To advocate to. Essentially create content and create a valuable resource for their audience for their industry, and they can do it from home, so it's got you know social distancing built right into it. But, I think I think that's a pretty important piece at the moment.

Team of ten people in Alpha silicate, this down at the Rock Church and you had just got the building at the Rock Church and you came in, and we had the you know Donna, dig in Ken! Sawyer we had some people that have been with me for a long time, and you actually facilitate an exercise where you said Todd, you're not allowed to talk. I'M GONNA ask questions to all your people not. Is this the rights pepper? You remember that? Was At work. What it was awesome, because it did work because we got great feedback about you said you've got to lean on people who have been with you for many years which you can't be the one doing the meeting to get feedback of you should, if you should expand your business or not, let me do it off. Facilitate the round table and we had a two hour round table. Discussion we had pizza brought into the Rock, and it was like a a was a Monday night from seven to nine o'clock and I'll never forget that you may forget it, but I'll never forget it because. Pay Maybe. That's why I forgot IT I. Yes. Each Even up to now, guys, I share this, but one of the highlights. Is We record this in the month of April? Are Among the May I'm sorry we.

But, it is like giving I'm glad it's a blessing. I just love being in groups with people well always. Here is Mondays the most difficult day for pastor. Right because you give all Sunday and then Monday your absolute shot, and actually you've done a great job since I've known you at least the last decade on Mondays trying to recharge with your body massage and recouping your energy and all that stuff so. It's interesting, but today I want to actually step back. I in in a way you. WanNa think about? These days where you're at right now, a lot's changed in. Let's say twenty years. What's what's most on your heart right now? While is a lot of things.

"Day Anki. Todd I mean I appreciate that in you. Know where gratitude is is more than attitude. That's another tool that's helped me. It is a way of life and because because I didn't have that coach absence team I have to make sure that I'm that for the other people in in order to do that. I have to appreciate have to appreciate the opportunity that I've been given to work with this youth right into appreciate that. Appreciate the because man it is it. Is there how they helped me and they teach me more than I feel like? I get that the users today are awesome. We are still that we get you. So even when they're headaches we have to think that because they are making a better. I I want to end with this I believe everyone needs a mentor. To coach you mean I need I need mentor? You need coaches and mentors. We all need people that we can be held accountable to in that. We can get things done one of the reasons you started. Your developed developing athlete. Podcast was so that you can impact a young athletes in men and women who are striving to be the best in their life If you could tell an athlete three things to remember along their journey of development. What would those three things be? Could you talk about that? A lot on the podcast. What would your three Be Leslie? Number one would be respect. The Rep beat present in each honor. It honor extra in every area of your life every interaction and then the second thing would be to to compete of course compete to be your best in compete. Means to bring out the best in yourself into bring out the best in each other. I don't think you can be your best without helping the people around you there. S Right so help. Your teammates help your parents help. Your friends know that we're all in this together and then the third one would definitely be that you're you can make it through whatever challenges in front of you so honor the struggle. Seek the struggle week. We don't want to be comfortable because when we're comfortable were not growing right to seek it. Say how how can I wrote every opportunity in front of you challenge it use it to wrote and then become the person that are meant to be you know and enjoy the journey. I'm going to add a PS. Enjoy the journey. The highs the lows. You'RE GONNA YOU'RE GONNA cry. You'RE GONNA laugh. You're you celebrate. You'RE GONNA win. You'RE GONNA lose like that's right that's like we see that in the mastermind. Some people come in they are at the highest some people at the lowest but they keep showing up in the next thing like that. It's like heels. Valley writes does enjoy the journey in. Enjoy it with people you love. So why now? Thirteen years later. You'll still find yourself in the mastermind because you need coaching. And you need to surround yourself with people. Every opportunity for me is is opportunity to grow and I need to get feedback from you. Need to get feedback from my coaches and say you know. What do you think about this? What do you think about because we see things especially when you're emotionally attached to something a lot of times you have like this view but you can see objectively through other people? I could give tons of ice other people but when it comes to the I might not be able to see that so. I don't need you because you're not a mostly invested in it to give me honest feedback and to look at that and I love giving. I love giving now at the beginning of the mastermind. I did not think anything like why. Am I here now when we get together? What can I help you but can help you right there. I love to others so it just an energy flow that I well.

"Eight five three eight is really high energy. Todd I've seen you as an eight. You'd see me as we get a lot of value of being eight. We can keep that up on time. That's what I think is big energy high energy passion disaster. Think of three as calm observe and listen both eight and three or awesome right on like you're right now being a three eight and what I tell people with. The handshake started five. Then people might go. That's pretty basic. It is about a handshake but if we don't if we don't make this basic then the stuff that gets really deep like conversation listening laughter humor knowing how to end the conversation knowing how to honor someone else. That stuff is the art of it could have. We don't know head a handshake properly. You're you're missing the entry. You're missing how to open the door. So start at five five look like well. You don't need a bro me up like try to like overpower me with an update on the flipside. Be careful never GONNA get my business partner. Blair bloom stay. Who you know she's a Rockstar. Do Not Give Blair. Bloom stint a week handshake all trust. You condescending. Doesn't mean you have to overpower people started five. What else practice practice practice now? I think that's great. I mean same even I. It's it's now just human nature when you even a young young boy or girl and you shake their hand if they have a firm handshake look in there and say yes coach. Mike. He's different she's different and I like that. I mean that's that's what you WanNa do on that. Let me ask you this because this is interesting times as we record this right now. The power of a handshake as we record this in the midst of of Kobe. Nineteen people aren't touching each other houses going like you know. How do you give the power of a virtual handshake? You give an Air Bumper Air Hogger. Or how is how is this virtual impression going to change? You believe. It's such eight important question. Just ask talk because we'd never experienced this year's what I think and I'm no grew on unprecedented. Unprecedented damage okay. Let's acknowledge that this is there a guru on something? That doesn't really line out real well but on learning. We're all in this year's I'd say I think there's going to even be more emphasis on a smile on body language. Cool because if we're not creative we're not gonNA hug all the time which I get. It's going to be tough and we're not going to be handshaking all the time the idea. You're more important when you walk into a situation. Put your cell phone down prior to entering if high stakes in fact if you don't have to bring your cell phone don't but the idea of looking at your cell phone before you look up in green is going to be noticed your posture and your body. Language is going to be noticed. And I'm telling you you can see a smile from one hundred yards away. Just remember that. That's it so again. It goes back to basics but I think this whole situation is unplugging us tied so we have to get back to basics daughters a writing. Thank you notes now. They're writing their pen pals with their neighbors. My wife in the neighbor. Figure this out there pen pal. They're loving it dude. I can't remember the last time I wrote a thank. You note talking thank you. I'm not talking about an email or text. Says you'RE LEGIT. Bro. I'm talking to you. I'm saying all this because I know that there are leaders. Parents fitness professionals executives men and women. Listen to your todd and I wanna say to all of them. You're a father. I'm a father todd were all in this and I think we're going to embrace. I hope we embrace this. Simplicity that we're being forced to lean on right now when we get back and reconnect So Good Steve Still GonNa Love The power of a handwritten note power. A handwritten letter Talking to you about something when it comes to body language. Let's say someone is warped? Let's say they don't feel good about themselves. They're either down or depressed Let's say it could be a boys earl? I don't WanNa say you. You have to fake it. You make it. But how do you change your body language? So you're battling dictates your mind that you know if you got chest out and you start to get that tail wagging little bit. A If someone's down like that from a body language perspective. How do you shift your energy from a body language perspective? Yeah I'm really thinking about how to clearly share. I think I'm thinking two ways one is I all of us. We need to give ourselves some grace. We need ourselves some grace. Todd people see you and they think this guy's charged on all the time I know you well enough to know you definitely have your times to reset. I'm not funny all the time out there. All the time and communication grew all the time I asked my wife. She'll tell you messed up or times already. It's one o'clock eastern right. Now Helps Grace give ourselves some grace and if you don't have to pivot into that social interaction right away don't create unnecessary haste if you don't have to pit let's example. I've just worked out with you. I'm wiped out and and you want to meet someone important if we have time for me to reset and get my breath. I'm just GONNA ask for maybe a reset so I'm not shifting quickly so give yourself some grace and then when you are in that situation you know my my hope is that we can appreciate not acting up. Benthic but being often. I think being authentic is way more powerful than acting authentic so you know what if you genuinely are wiped out and you're around people that you trust you can also say hey guys. I'm not feeling at my best right now. Just want to let you know. Knowledge it nate. I'm not feeling at my best right now. I need you to have my back. A Don't mistake my mic down as anything other than a pretty wiped out and then most human beings at a right minded. They're going to be got you so good so good and folks that that you remember. We talked about all those other other habits that we can do to make sure that we shift that as well away from the training what we're eating and then swollen up that that chess and all that as well so that is great right there. See I wanNA talk about something. I know all of our listeners today. love talk might success and you worked with a lot of successful individuals athletes leaders and companies. If you were to break down have some common denominator some common behavioral traits and Best Practices From the executives teams incorporations in parents. Even children would some of those common denominators. I love this question. And it's really hard and you know all due tot start by saying that everyone listening. We are in this together. I'll start with the fact that I'm a father of an eight year old and a six year old and I'm going to try to answer. That question is if I was talking to them. I don't want to see if it resonates with executives leaders and coaches out there. One thing I tell my children do not be afraid to apologize. So one thing I've seen in successful companies is. The leadership has the confidence to tell their teammates when they made a mistake. And you could actually connect that all the way and I'm not going to get political all the way in politics government anyone who's in charge of anything the power of saying. Hey I'm sorry and having the confidence to know you're not gonNA lose your authorities so the ability to be a to say I'm sorry. Another common denominator is leadership. That is successful are accountable. They make themselves accountable and in the last one. I'd say that I see a lot. I mean I see a lot of common nominators. Another one is I tried to encourage my children and I try to look for leaders that have the combination of authority and empathy. So my daughter's eight. I want her to know. She has authority over me but she has authority over her thoughts. She has authority over her decisions and she also at times can have authority over her. Little sister who asks sorta helped her read and then the other component is empathy if we can complete authority and when I see that Combo work usually the companies and teams and groups working with our very successful if they have a Nice Combo Authority and empathy. Ask you this yes I do. You teach empathy Moo thought. This is going to be simple questions. Todd why are we GONNA go? Where did you got a? I don't know if you list whispering now you know what? How do you teach empathy? I think before you think about teaching for the you've got to really know someone's story and you really got to know like where they're coming from and what scars they'd gone through you know. Look Man. I'm pretty privileged brother and I'm GONNA I'm GonNa say you are too and I never taken for granted before. I even tried to teach us a young athlete fighting. Try to teach that young man or woman maybe I I should practice empathy and understand their journey where they brought up with two parents where they brought up in associated economic environment that allowed them to have education privilege. So really the best way for me to teach up at the. You can't is to be empathetic I think he would say that a lot of that. Can you teach love? Yeah you know how to do it be loving. Can you teach fitness Indiscipline Abbott? Rather one of the things I love about you. Is You taking care of your body? And you're not a straight coaches like smoking a cigarette during the break. I mean that's extreme. That's not what I would like. I know that when extreme but like the answer to your question Keith empathy. I think you can and the first step is gateway is to show empathy and when you realize people's journey maybe you understand why they're angry. Maybe understand why they're selfish. Maybe you understand why they don't like to be around. Lots of people may have nothing to do with you. Get Out of your own way. Just be that they're guarded and your job is to love on them and somehow some seeds stay there every time I talk to You. I laugh and that's why I love talking to you because you make me laugh you make me smile and there's power in that there's power and making people laugh and the reason I asked about. Empathy is because it was a great answer. Because you know we have three kids seventeen fifteen and twelve and I think one thing that kids can learn is more of like what you just shared. How do you listen to your friends story? How do that then? Hey how are you doing how? How's life going? How how to me as a as a leader Finished ten asked my team. Hey how how's everything outside of your in training and we got forty two people when you asked when you said that you have to listen to people will listen. I mean just to step away from your ego and you have to go outside of yourself beyond yourself. Say How are you doing and you go back to the listening aspect because empathy and compassion are two things when you even the John. Wins the great coach of the world. They have empathy unloved for the people who they work with that they they train that they're in the trenches with their in the foxhole with so thanks for sharing that that was powerful. Our free down the love this brother I'd love and this This is my worried. I was GONNA jump through my computer and break my read me up to my listeners. If you hear my computer just crashed. Tried TO TACKLE. Todd Todd to go further with this time and I encourage leaders..

"You can't fast forward time but you can absolutely control your time. What are you doing with the time that you have right? Now it might be inconvenient. You might be home. It might be inconvenient. You might be shut down. It might be inconvenient. Maybe maybe the crisis is recovering from a health scare. But what can you do to optimize the time that you have right now? That's being a leader and here's the other thing that always happens in times of crisis leaders show up Eaters stand out so again you could be a leader and control your situation a little better or you could be follower which is okay. But you're GONNA have a lot more anxiety and you're gonNA feel a lot less control over the crisis that you're currently in great wisdom right there. Frank One more question for you you know you shared a few of your different learning opportunities. I'll call them crises in two thousand fourteen. You're diagnosed with cancer yet again. Another crisis And if you've ever gone through battling cancer or any other major disease or health scare. Obviously that's the only thing you think about right and not said before he or she has their health has a thousand dreams he or she does not has one. You're diagnosed with cancer and fourteen looking back now. What did that crisis teach you? Well once again You know you can you. Can YOU CAN LEARN? You could lead. You could lean on you know when I when I got an first of all. I never had a fatalistic form so my my thyroid cancer. Even though there was a little bit of spreading I was always optimistic that I would have the best possible outcome. But when you get that first phone call you know when even when you know that. That's a possibility. Because you're going for ultrasounds and you're going you're going for biopsies and you realize that. Hey this could be cancerous. Nothing prepares you for that phone. Call when you get a call. It was Good Friday two thousand fourteen. I stepped out into the hall of work and the phone voice on the other end. Was Frank this doctor Margulis? Your biopsy results came back. You Have Cancer. You need to prepare for surgery and you're like you're flooded with just like now or any crisis what happens now. Where do I go? How long does this take? Who DO I call? What happens next but once you breathe and you settle down again. Now you've got to lean. Who can I lean on You know at the time the first person I leaned on my wife. Francesca and God bless her. Francesca leaned on heavily during that time. you know. She was making. My doctor's appointments running to the pharmacy making making sure that I had levin pound cake from starbucks. Right after surgery but You know that enabled me and I obviously great doctors but that enabled me to do what I needed to do to prepare for surgery and then recover after surgery so again you know what what I probably learned from. That process is always be proactive. With regard to your health it also started to two thousand. Fourteen was a pivotal year for me. After surgery I started to realize that I wanted to set up my work around my life. Not My life around my work you know. I think it's very easy to think about well. One day down the road. I'd like to maybe take Wednesdays off to ride my bike while I actually did that as part of my recovery once I was physically able to get out and become active again I didn't really have a lot of clients on Wednesday in once I did. I was able to move to other days So I created a blue sky Wednesday where I woke up and I read got on my bike for an hour or two came back and I just kinda focused on a different a different aspect of life that I was always waiting for but I the the cancer diagnosis surging. The recovery said by taught me like why not. Now can you. Can you start to readjust your work life so that you can live a better life and so there was a lot of lessons? Learned through there in terms of how to manage a little bit of fear but definitely. That was a moment where again you learn to lean on people and quite honestly if you recall the day. I got the diagnosis. One of the first things I did is I put a rather lengthy Yum e mail out to my mastermind team and you actually called me that night and said hey man I I wanNA share this to the the entire mastermind. That's your like your first of all you're going to be okay and then afterwards you said like to share this because I recognize there was an opportunity there to lead. It's like hey guys you know what I caught is very early. I'm going to have a great outcome. Be Proactive with your health. Don't just assume because I'm twenty thirty. Forty fifty whatever that and I feel good that I can skip a biannual doctor's appointment or something like that so you know again a different type of crisis but opportunity to lead opportunity to learn and certainly an opportunity to lean and to love. We've got all of those you get in a lot of love. And you've received a lot of love and I think any crisis is a great time to focus on love and we've been talking about love and lighting the world up right now. I think any and all of us who are listening in today right now as you listening is to come from a place of love realizing that you to like me like frank like all of us have been through crisis and we will. We will overcome this. We will get through this and I just hope that Franks words of wisdom today and what you heard from me will just help. Ease your mind and allow you to focus on the here now and to focus on the things that will Be Around family. Be Around love around your community. We talk about iron sharpens iron Franks saying lean into those people who sharpen you right now. Lift you up and empower you. Think good positive thoughts frank any final words here before we wrap it up. You know I guess I would wrap up with this Way when you're facing a crisis a couple of things a great question to ask yourself is if I had a six months heads up on this what would I have done differently over the last six months to prepare and obviously the bigger the list that you would come up with the more things you need to work on the fewer things that are on that list maybe a small comfort to know that you did everything you could to put yourself in the best possible position. But you also need to ask yourself. What are the lessons that this crisis is teaching me? And I want you to remember to final God's in times of crisis the worst thing that you can think of is always the least likely to occur so the worst thing you can think of is always the least likely to occur. And that was thinking about this on my ron earlier. But you'll undoubtedly find yourself facing a crisis at some point but it's often in times of crisis that we truly find ourselves so you know I said earlier. That crisis brings about an opportunity for leadership. I think crisis brings about the opportunity to become our best selves. Todd you said you see a lot of love and times of crisis. I think that's incredibly true and I think that that's going to reveal an avail itself to many people over the coming weeks possibly months now. That's awesome frank. I appreciate you being here as always You and I have the opportunity to interact and converse every single day And it's an honor to work with you and to be your friend in the have you in the inner circle and I always respect and appreciate all the value the wisdom and love that you bring to myself. Our family fitness quest hand the toddler mastermind group and today everyone across the globe. Who's listening in Trying to figure this all out and I think your your words or certainly GonNa Comfort people and allow them to have a different perspective on things so I really appreciate it.

It's today is the start of a new canoe me. What would you say to that person I would say? Don't give up because you can do it because dieting exercising using and when I did into it. It's not fun. You missed a candy. You missed the sodas you know. It's not fun but it's it's worth it you can undoing and did you put your mind on something like the person you wanted to be or the body you wanted to have. What was your? Where is your mind going going like when when you know? You've got an addiction to food or bad habits and you know you know that you want something.

It's an instagram post to facebook. Post or a tick tock or a podcast like listen. All of these. Things are great great ways to reach people but the way okay that I got myself out. There was changing lives. And it's not just the pro athletes I work with. It's the everyday people of falling in love with the process of what I'm doing everyday day see. Nowadays people often want that one thing and I'm always thinking like fall in love with the process of of change in lives. If you're a coach of your trainer if you're alive transformers change more lives and by changing lives people start talking and it becomes authentic in one of the reasons.

We all have a great story and and don't ever hide behind a story of shame. Aim or guilt or fear of like. Oh my gosh. What if they found out I? I used to be obese and overweight and had apathy and depression anxiety stress. All those things.

"Book and like how to system is your business and we are much more savvy and sophisticated today than we were then but starting out to scale your business what I would say is you gotTa make sure you do set up systems that are going to allow you to be successful. What technologies can use today too when someone starts working with you you today? They're like wow this carly her businesses really streamlined. And it's it's it's a little more technological than are archaic system that we use back in the day where he had a shoebox where we had literally cards that you had to like cross literally manually. Cross out one through forty eight and you're on session. Twelve forty eight sessions. It was the honor system the most archaic system that you ever could imagine that costs us. Tens of thousand dollars in the long run because that was just like we didn't technology exists like it does now but I would say set that business up so you can system is a end scale it and then last like stay in tune with your audience and your Avatar Avatar so like who tried to attract and in your Avatar. Stay in tune with them because guess what. Even though I've had clients for almost twenty years some of our clients have been here for that long and we've got new clients obviously all the time as well. I think consumer insights do change the way people consume information. Change Heck look at the way. Fitness has changed people aren't consuming Consumers aren't even consuming fitness. The way they did twenty years ago when it was just big box gyms it was studios studios. Now there's a lot of online digital ways that you can consume That look at the way we use myzone technologies and have different Challenges that we have on on that so it's an ever changing environment and I think you look at like net flicks. They kick they kick blockbuster business streaming video uber. The taxi taxicabs are like practically out of Business Uber. Now it's changed the way it disrupted the way when did expedia it. Usually you call a travel agent agent member. I want to remember travel by the way. It's a love travel agents not anymore called Expedia and and Expedia you book. Travel travel often through a service like an expedient always say is where the industry your industry whatever industry you're in how do you disrupt it so so you look and say how do I scale it for the future because it's gotTa probably involve digital. It's got to be technological. There's gotta be systems. But how do you still maintain that kinesthetic feel feel when someone walked in there like. Hey it smells good here. Feels good in here. I like this Because I think when you come out of the gates you you'd have to come out of your gates like making an impression and even no we had carpet on the floor refurbished equipment and we had the bootstrapped our way because we didn't have a lot of money I Still WanNa make a good impression. Always making sure you're smiling as a friendly only face because people remember the energy feel it remember what you say but they remember how you made them feel. That's important so that if if it's you or someone at the Front Desk Director First Impressions. It's crucial how you make them feel. Yeah so you talked a little bit about You know you didn't have very much when you start it up and you had you know refurbished abridged equipment and stuff like that. Yeah so when you're starting up finances can be really really tight So one of the things that I'm thinking about is they've got like a small sum of money to start your business. What are some of the areas that you would invest in knowing what you know now? How much money? Let's say like under five thousand dollars under five thousand funny you say that because actually the only investor I had an angel investor Ester bill and Kathy cotton up in San Jose. My future wife's aunt and uncle believed in me so much that they lent me. Five thousand dollars. I was so much money I was like. Oh my gosh I feel like I'm GONNA be rich. The and the and the loan was you. GotTa you gotTa repay back within two years. Here's at no interest. No interest right some personnel. I'M GONNA pay these guys back in a year and I did one year I pay them back but to answer your question. Like what would I do with that money well again for me. I bootstrap that pretty early because it went pretty quick. Because like I ki- runs I ki- like got expensive expensive. Quick for you know you have a couple of thousand dollars you gotTa get a desk and you gotta get some furniture for the front area the lobby because the lobby is very important area. Because you want to feel good and you no you should. You should have a little waterfall there because we have streaming water When you look at Fang Sh- way and represents harmony and happiness and wealth so you have that I think little things. I'd invest in that front area making sure that that lobby is tranquil. That someone comes in they feel like you know what I really liked the feel of this place. It smells good this you know some sense in there whether it be orange or lavender whatever it may be I think the colors of your place council also investing in the way it looks and feels is important. I would say at least in the gym in the fitness studio. Never white walls whites boring. Don't be deep boring. You can't be vanilla in today's Day. So what are you going to do to give an air and a feel about something to make sure it feels good on that. So five thousand dollars goes by like that. It goes by so fast that I think got eaten up real quick because I remember when I first got my sign fitness quest hand. It costs three thousand dollars. I was had a heart attack at age twenty nine because how can assign cost three thousand dollars they do. They're expensive answer and again. Everything's expensive so I maxed out my credit card. Sorry Dave Ramsey on that I did. It was my only option because I didn't have any money in the bank. Said no money no clients. No business plan is the truth. I had a five thousand dollar loan Max Everything Out in in in Fortunate was able to survive. It's amazing it really is helping is answering the questions helping you start your business. I hope it's helpful for everyone else's it has been for me. I really do absolutely absolutely one more question. And this is my last question all right so this is based off of one of your recent instagram posts. So you made a post about marketing being about fifty percent of the game for some of your projects so for someone like me who is so new to this whole business idea like I've spent the last four years learning medicine. I don't know anything about business. Marketing Marketing or very very little so marketing sounds like this big huge ambiguous word right so when you say marketing for specific projects projects. What do you mean by marketing? Like what kind of marketing are you talking email marketing. You're talking social marketing or are you talking. You're starting how should I what I do. Yeah now if I was opening now what I do yes. How much time do you have all day? Todd I know you have all day test fans I know right now. You're at the end of your work. I like Oh man. Td GotTa rap but let me tell you. I'll go rapid fire. I'm just GONNA go off the top my head because marketing I said in that instagram post about marking being fifty percent of your pride. Let me preface it by saying this if your product stinks. It doesn't matter how much you market it doesn't matter. How good your marketing is? You gotTa have a great product. You gotTa have a great culture in that product so I wanNa make sure that that you're that you know it's not confusing that you've gotta you've gotTa make sure that your product is world class and that the customer service is world class in today's competitive Uber Competitive Space It's gotta be it's gotTa be up to snuff. Now what would I do. You mentioned a couple of things the first thing I would do is I would make sure I get out there and shake hands. That's free I'd make sure I network like. Hey I really liked that guy. He came out and shook my hand when he did he. He gave me a a handshake gave me a bag. I'd probably give them an under armour bag full of great swag with it. It is ten water bottle. I give them my while book. I give them stuff including a little guest passed to come. The fitness quest had an experience our culture. They ain't thrown away a good swag bag now. I'm I'm not saying you gotta go out and spend thousands of dollars on that but to go out and shake hands and give a little gift bag with Some of your services and welcome them in for a complimentary treatment achievement. I think that'd be good. I would give away some services in the beginning because all you want is people in your door because those bill you're on referrals and by word of mouth but asking them for help help not just hoping that they're going to help you That's number one. I would write an email once a week. I would once a week write a weekly email. That's one hundred percent content unladen. I want that email full juice for you. Manage endless think about topics of of health topics and conditions Diseases and things in. Here's the key folks. Don't just write the email carly right the email but then make that email a blog. Then take that blog and post on your facebook now. You hit three different mediums. Because when you do that and you take that blog of its streamed on your wordpress website. Now that's GonNa help your search engine optimization so when someone hits an irritable balance bowel syndrome in Google Google. You'RE GONNA possibly hop into the first or second page which is more likely someone's going to use you because I I am still in the belief that someone still does Google websites and there's GonNa look for your website or they're gonna find you through that I would target on facebook ads. I'd have target ads on facebook and have an ad spend ten to twenty dollars a day. Do the math. How much is that going to be thirty thirty days in a month to three to six hundred dollars good advertising because you can actually today very very cheap still is you could say I'm going? I want to attract men or women between thirty five and fifty five years old that have these current conditions and target the heck Outta them Avatar. Absolutely don't just do like a regular post on that you want to have some paid advertising. That's very specific and have a trial mile offer trial opportunity for them to get into and remember with anyone doing ads. You always want to sell benefits not the features Silla benefits the features. I made the mistake early on as we have personal personal training massage therapy pilates. Who Cares who cares that we have that those are features of fitness quest hen? What are the benefits? What are the emotional benefits benefits? We can help you lose weight. Feel great get your mind.

"You are asking great questions by the way that starts arts with your vision as a leader because in year two thousand three I started working with an athlete name Ladainian Tomlinson anyone by the way know who that is I don't know but lt was my first athlete I ever worked with. He was the first round pick for this anyway. chargers and I started working with with Lt and he came in and he was right after my seventy five year old woman Donna Dickenson now Donna was like my first client here at fitness quest ten year two thousand and I would train Donna for her tennis matches and the and the next hour I was training. Lt This incredible famous athlete here here in town and the more I was working with athletes grandma's and GRANDPA's people would start to ask like have you ever considered getting an athlete only performance facility Jodi and the more I went deep on Hayes at something I should do more is like absolutely not why would I do that you train nine athletes and clients and grandma's and GRANDPA's and kids the same way. They all want the same thing. They WANNA be great. They strive for excellence. They tried to become better so donna is pushing just as hard as Lt. He is now. Does he have more physical gifts. Of course he does. He was a twenty three year old athlete with a forty inch vertical jump as fast as lightning and and you know he was working on his craft but guess what Donna got so much joy out of playing tennis matches and that would that's what kept her alive and moving on that court was her joy how she expressed herself so from the start it was always my vision under one roof to combine training and massage therapy because I have back onto massage and bodywork as well it was the take the best of the Western world and take it with the eastern world of breath work meditation <hes> stretching and Yoga and Tai Chi and ricky work and how do you take this an integrated with Olympic lifts and and and apply metrics and if you take that under one roof and integrate into very complimentary three hundred sixty degree he practiced how can we affect all areas of the body mind and spirit and to me that from the start was always our philosophy and it has been that way for now over nineteen years almost twenty years. It's been that way of we work with you. Walk in an hour. You'll see kids training and you guys have worked a lot of kids. You'll see you've been on the field with the pro athletes you see the grandmas. GRANDPA's the class with the everyday duties weekend. Where's desk jockeys coming on in so that starts with a visionary thing and then the folks that you attract the trainers and staff massage therapist that you attract to your organization here at his quest ten <hes> then that just becomes is an aspect of your culture good question Todd <hes> you mentioned Lt and lt obviously brought in drew so and so forth Raza's history what what was it like for you personally to see their growth on the field as being you know a rookie for a second year player and then to where they became name and where they are now like for you to see knowing that you you know played a hand in it right. I love football season because I get to sit back and watch when when their off-season it's I'm in-season so from February through July. I'm in grind time. I'm getting these guys better and I am going to work my butt it off to make sure that these guys get better not just in the weight room but I'm peppering them in text them and send them crazy videos from the gym. I'm in their head and having them read and everything else so you know to get in to get in their head all the time a guys like Lt Drouin sp- Rosie and these guys is let's face it. I've been blessed <hes> part of the NFL is you gotta be lucky to get hurt. <hes> you know. Lt didn't have any major major. Injuries drew had a major injury from a hit in two thousand late late two thousand five but overall has been <hes> very healthy his nineteen year career part of that is because because of the hard work that they put in but I mean when you're when you're such a violent game as football <hes> hard work plus preparation you get a little bit lucky to on on that <hes> when I went to Lt's enshrinement in Canton Ohio two years ago it was the highlight of my career here because for nine years I saw that guy buses when he put on that headband and came in here and trained <hes> whatever I said that guy would do and then some <hes> when you see someone's fruits of their labor payoff it brings you tremendous satisfaction because of the platform they have and how they get back to the community drew brees is no different <hes> five years after that guy retires he will be enshrined in Canton and drew nigh become extremely close obviously with training him for sixteen of nineteen years almost seventeen years <hes> <hes> tremendous respect pride <hes> happens with a guy like drew and not only how he carries himself on the football ballfields but I've never seen drew ever once in my seventeen year relationship with him on ever say no to an autograph he stayed on a football field several several times for the military two hours after practice was over to sign everything for that military family all the soldiers men and women around <hes>. I've seen him in news interviews. I've seen him in radio interviews podcasts and everything else and that guy just serves people and let me tell you it's exhausting when you're on when when people like. Oh man you don't see all the things behind the scenes but <hes> I find tremendous satisfaction knowing that these men are men of CARE Chairman of faith men who are giving good things not the kind of guys. You're going to read about in the police blotter that are doing the wrong. Things are just they're good men doing great things out in the community minority for their teams and the organization great question so I was going to also talk about what the euro professional athletes that you have and just the way that they conduct themselves here as well <hes> because of the community you did that. You have set up here that they don't come in as make some space here. I come. You're there every day folks just just like the rest of US coming in and I actually had the opportunities to co train with Jeff King <hes> who is one of your coaches here and and I was training with Tony Gwynn junior and had no idea who he was and so we are having a conversation and and I hear coach Jeff King mentioned his wife's name and said Gwynn at the end but why introduce me to Tony Tony. He didn't say his last name didn't register to me so I actually did my first half marathon. The San Diego Heff was in honor of Tony Goin' senior and so I said to coach King. Do you think I could talk to him like I just WanNa tell them like about this half marathon on because the people that did the half marathon actually sent me a personal note because I did that marathon half marathon honor of my mother's birthday which was her birthday they weekend and I was able to share that with Tony Win Junior and he was so compassionate with me about the story of me losing my mother him losing his father and just the fact that I'm standing here having a conversation with him both of a sweaty because we just finished working out and I actually was like come on keep going to motivate him mm-hmm. You know standing outside looking like what can I do to motivate Tony Gwynn Junior. You know what I might WanNa trainer so he needs me so I'm in my head like okay this. This is what he came here for but it's just so amazing that nobody walks in here better than the next person's right and is just a community that everybody is giving and loving and even when we're off the schedule as interns there were still being contacted and and being taken care of or making sure that everything is okay with us and I just want to let you know that I appreciate that from you have an community and bringing us in as interns that we have an opportunity to <hes> build our toolbox and be able to say I work with this person and that person and and then no matter who comes in like you're talking about a fifty year old or eighty year old is coming in treat everybody the same and give them the same no matter who they are no matter what they're driving or what they're wearing. It's a person that's coming to you to make them better and so I really appreciate that. You have made their community here. We'll remember this the sweetest thing in the English dictionary if someone's first name yes when you call by name. You make them feel special <hes>. That's a really important thing so that's a skill. You'VE GOTTA learn. How do you remember People's names and you uh when you when you meet a lot of people but how you make people feel is everything <hes> and they always say they don't care how much you know until they know how much you care right so they don't care what you know until until they know how much you care so you gotta make sure that you you win the Karen Game. How do you win the Karen Game. You truly listen to people on that. Tony Gwynn Juniors a great example. Tony's been here cash for a dozen years since he's been playing and his father's an icon a lot of our younger kid you. Tony Gwynn is like no never heard of Mike Oy. He's one of the top baseball players of all time look them up on that and when Tony Senior passed away he was just in his fifties. Oh it's cool to see now. Tony Gwynn junior now doing so many great things in the community of San Diego and around. He's now commentating <hes> for the San Diego Padres <hes> <hes> but hey tony's like anyone else who he's here. He's the regular do trying to get better. He's trying to keep the weight off. He's trying to feel better trying to get his mind right. He's got a podcast as well. He's doing awesome. Things is and again when you're rubbing elbows Lotta Times. It's you know what it is. It's the athletes telling me men that Graham Graham over their their farm me up the way how hard they're working right into the aperture looking at the aperture fire never knows up no the athletes are looking at the regular person in the corner who's just banging out push ups in and TRX rose and they're firing the athletes elites up right so Tony's a great example of of just you know who we have here. F- in his quest hand the culture and regardless of where you train what I wanNa make sure you you find find around the world around the globe. There's so many amazing extrordinary coaches and trainers and fitness professionals find someone who's going to motivate hey you. It's going to inspire you go into an environment. That's positive go into a culture. That's GonNa Light. Your light your heart and soul on fire not just a place because it's pretty the and and the reputation precedes no good a place where you feel great. It brings up your vibration. Your mind and you leave there feeling amazing when you.

"Its fits within your methodology but that's how we've designed fitness quest ten Julia. My question was more about like the culture in keeping people through the grind. So how do you keep people on the grind through adversity city whether it be like team or business or working with professional athletes that kind of expand. I'm not sure I follow you so you're asking. How do you keep the people grinding if they're facing adversity yeah so every time like whenever I'm in the gym everyone is always on the grind. They're they're working their butts off in here in this amazing to see and it is just a community of pushing each other and helping each other recycles. She's like if there's something going going on like maybe outside the gym like how do you keep people pushing through that. You have any specific examples Julia uncut if I relate it to like. I'm going through like as a college athlete like maybe there's an injury on a team or maybe there's a the team just isn't getting along or maybe CBS just an off day or or even like in a game like something's happens like maybe you're starting player is down. <hes> you really just have to figure out how to get got through that lake. But what would you say that yeah a couple of things first off we all know anyone listening and whenever you've been hurt injured whether it's acute injury through sport you have a chronic injury. You've got a knee issue back. Issue Pain is interesting when you look at pain because pain messes with you mentally. It's a mental thing many any time you can put up when I had my knee issues. I put up with pain for years and I could do it. The hardest part wasn't the physical pain. It was the mental pain of. I don't feel like I should or the energy. GS depleting its fatiguing on that when you're a student when you're a high school student college athletes even a pro athlete. The hardest part is when you feel ostracized from the team. So how do you keep someone who's injured whether it's a two four week injury it's a several month injury or to an ACL. You're sitting out for nine months twelve months. Whatever may be how do you keep that person in the game. Mentally that's a hard thing to do and I think it's important as a coach as a trainer to make sure that you make sure those people still feel part of the team because they will not doc feel part of the team because they're in Rehab there with the or there with a physical therapist they're doing the Rehab and there are steps removed on that if you're grinding on the team and there's some drama uh or there's some other things going on. I think it's important that as a coach as an athlete all of us in this room are leaders at fitness quest hand. Would I'd say with forty two teammates. There's bound to be a few of my teams that have stuff going on outside of your personally whether the families themselves whatever may be as listen when you you show up and it's time to go you gotta go. You gotta find a way you gotTA. Snap Your van literally snappy ban you gotta get your mind right and you gotta go. Sometimes you do your best work when you're facing adversity. Sometimes when you're backed up against the wall you like you dig down and you start to get a little red. You get to get the little grind on that. You know that but that is because you're listening to podcasts podcast like this. That's because you you you dial in your best practice. I'm not going to submit to eating garbage all the time because I feel like garbage. That's hard that's disciplined. The Best of the best have the ability to go train when they don't feel like it if you're going through a tough time go out there and start doing delasin squat. I tell you the other day and you were killing it <hes> on that. That's how you continue to get your mind right and your teammates see you. They see you working on that if you're in high school if you're in college you're you're a weekend warrior. Remember this find people who you want to train with that are gonNA lift you up and you live them up. Five teammates find workout training mates that you can work out with who you're. GonNa get the best of the best out of you push. You're GonNa have fun on your smartphone. You have high fives and that's because all of a sudden all the endorphins get I call dose get little dose. Now does it but it does dopamine oxytocin oxytocin. Listen Serotonin and endorphins when you work out you get a dose on that. That's a hormonal chemical response that happens in your brain so when you say when I'm always get your mind right. Get your mind right. Get your mind. It is interesting as saying that you get your mind right. It's when you're physically yourself to be the best that you can. You're training hard. You're eating right. There's a chemical reaction that get your mind right so if someone is struggling struggling with depression anxiety stress all right. Let's go for a walk. Let's go out there and start with the buy low but you have to kill yourself and all of a sudden chemical start getting released and you start feeling better. That's why every day every single day and sixty five days a year. We're giving ourselves our own keynote every day on that so for the question. Julia I know it's a long winded answer answer on that is just gotta you gotTa keep the Grit you've got to keep the grind and and <hes> if someone a teammates going through adversity voice of encouragement lifting them up not pushing pushing down pull up never pushing down pulling up pull up up too many times especially the you know the young young kids. Even young teens are constantly pushing people down. How could you be the vehicle of change to help poor people. Yes good question good question. Chevy so I have a question more so about you and your success <hes> first of all. Do you realize how many people love you and I wouldn't necessarily want to say the word famous because sometimes famous people they get out of touch with just everyday people. I saw you at idea a couple of months ago and I was like Whoa oh like people were pushing to get inside the room and I was like wow like todd darkness somebody so to see that from me not knowing who you were and so my question to you is because your ICU so humble every day and then you get on that station you just like the whole room on fire. Do you realize that you have that first of all and while I'm talking to you and I just glass behind you and I see your Bible and that to me already is like it's amazing as A. I'm trying to get emotional. It's amazing as a I would say just the everyday person succumb in and see somebody who's so successful but then to see your foundation right behind you because I have worked with admirals. I have worked. I'm a retired Navy. Maybe veteran so I have been in office of some quote unquote bigwigs. I haven't seen Bible sitting out a Lotta Times tucked in a drawer somewhere but just while while I'm asking this question my eyes glaze over the first thing I see I just WanNa know. If you realize how much of impact you're making and how does it fills you in your heart. Oh that's a big one. When I slow down enough breath sometimes I do yes. I don't slow down enough. I think I love when I meet people that don't know me <hes> and they're like I've never seen you never met you. Don't know who you are. I love that I actually like that and and <hes> realize that my mission nation on earth is to simply motivate and inspire people to greatness. That's what makes me work. That's what makes me tick my divine bovine purpose. You talk about the by a man of faith. <hes> you say success but I say success is what you deem use it. I'm successful. I don't look at myself as successful. I don't strive for quote success. I strive for significance. My significance is based on on my divine purpose so what is God have in store for me and my living up being obedient to that. Would I realize if I'm listening to what he's telling me to do. As I make decisions should expand my business if he saying no and I listened and tap into that than the answer is no if he's saying yes I'm like. I don't know how I'm GonNa do that. I realized he will provide the answers for me to do that. So for me is I've always been in tune with that faith aspect and obviously there's times when I'm really good would end the time when I'm not spending my daily devotional time which I so wholeheartedly attempt to do every day on that so when I'm up on stage lights me up and I always ask an I'd ask you guys is find out what your gifts are know what lights you up and do more of it so I know that writing and speaking and presenting lights me up it fires my soul up when you find things that you're passionate about in the love love to do and you do more of it you discover that gift and when you discover that gift and that is your purpose at that becomes like men. This is why I love to do and that so so I'm always appreciative when I go to an idea or to a conference or to a keynote and people have heard the podcast so they've seen a youtube. I saw a youtube in two thousand to nine of them and I'm like well. That's a long time but there's also people they've never met me and to me it's all about human connection and helping people discover that purpose purpose of what they want in life and and how you become better most people want to become better and most people wanna do that the reason that Bible sitting there is because there's many times during during a work day. I just need it. Oh yeah I I don't need a lunch break I need. I need a little forever AK before big needing. You'll and you take a big podcast before for any. I'll pray and I'll just I'll ask guidance and wisdom and if I can slow it down enough to realize what's most important. It's not about what other people deem team me successful not successful because again successful is fleeting. There'll be a day when no one wants a pitcher with me or sign a book or whatever so I realize I I try. Try To revel in that so chevy. Thanks for the question which you got big. Mike questions a little more business related K. so one one of the most major things I noticed about fitness. Quest ten is how diverse clientele is you have old and young people who've never been in the gym before and people who show up every day high school athletes college athletes professional athletes so what <hes> my question is. What do you think are few aspects of either the staff or the community of fitness quest ten in general that allow for this to exist..

"Listen to the chorus thing and hey we've we've asked the interns they've been grinding for eight weeks and they're graduating this week and the opportunity sit down on the podcast and to to ask any question they want on business leadership training personal growth career tracks whatever it is that's on their mind. They have a chance to ask the question today day. So let's go down the line real quick introduce yourself and a little bit of background and we'll dive right in. Hey guys I'm Julia. I'm currently going into my second year <hes> Fairfield University diversity which is in Connecticut. If you don't know I play volleyball there I've been training fitness quests per four years now and <hes> super fired up for this podcast <hes> and I've learned a lot out of this internship just seeing how much of an impact I could be to other girl training four years at ten and going in and in to what what year now airfield second year second year second year just a sophomore check it out guys. My My name is not. I am going to be a junior Washington University in a couple of weeks. Go cougs yeah there. I'm studying sport management. <hes> I WANNA get into to some sort of like sports business profession <hes> once I graduate but his internship here is helped me personally and physically on getting to know more people coming out of my shell that I've been in although I was finished quest client first time back in two thousand eight when I was about nine years old only so even living on the other side I've seen the impact I've seen the way of <hes> coming out and you know kind of finding your true self and getting along with people better and I've also in the physical side as well like learning about more like P- rehabbing rehab south. I'll take back to me that I didn't know beforehand interesting fact you had a class last semester with Mike Leach coach football coach Insurgent Warfare Football Strategies is a nice ninety minutes seminar <hes> for the month of April where we talked about war and the VAL football and not how they're the same because they're not the kind of how their little more similar. What was the one thing that you learned from coach. Leach either what he said how he carried himself. What what is it <hes>? It's more about his saying about swinging your sword about how your body's sort many. Don't want your store to be dull. Dull sword soared y'all can be able to take down your opponent but if you sharpen your sword if you know if you're in the weight room if you're training consistent love it you're gonna be able to take down your opponent and if you swing your sort of into nasty and your violent and you're aggressive. You're better off being passive love aggressive fantastic. Hey guys on Alex costs. I got my bachelor's in Kinesiology at San Diego state in two thousand seventeen currently have one semester left at San Diego State and I'm working on a master's in exercise physiology not nutrition science. This engine ships been great really diversified. Training South had a lot of fun here and it's really made me realize that there's not one way to train anyone. Athlete thebeat lot of cross training involves learning from the trainers and <hes> really excited for today. I really just want to go and see what's inside that brain those gears turning into the mind right maniac man and what what's your goal. What do you WANNA do Sunday. I WANNA work with professional athletes. Which is why I took this internship. I didn't do for college credits or anything I've just heard so many great things about it and I know some people who've been through it and so I wanted to do it mainly for the experience and I know that you train a lot of high quality athletes and even the average joes but they're all treated the same way I also have aspirations of owning my own facility at some point and everything I've learned this internship has just catapulted me into doing exactly that awesome awesome Nice Job Alex. Thank you Chevy. Hello hello everybody. Thank you for having us here. I'm so super excited for being here to to be able to talk to you. I am actually a fan of Melanie Durkin. Yes he's my professor to meet this <hes> I won't I'll say better half. Let's say this meet this. I'm super excited. I had no idea she's so modest about who her husband is so I'm just happy to actually be in the room with todd today and be able to talk to him. <hes> you know a little more one on one and <hes> have his attention rather than be watching him from the distance train which he is so great at <hes> so. I am alive learner and I go to southwestern college again with Melanie your wife and when and she gave us the opportunity to come here. I just knew that it had to be done and again. I had no idea what I was walking into but we came here for <hes>. I'm just to walk around before the internship started and soon as I walk through the door so much love and I said Oh yeah I need to be low so I'm very happy that I had the opportunity and much more excited to be able to talk to you. One on one like I get to do with Melanie more often also Chevy. If you guys haven't listened to the previous episode with with my wife Melanie definitely tuned and she talks about her experience as a teacher and professor at southwestern college and <hes> Chevy done a great job here the internship so congratulations. I think some semblance of Garett what's up on Garrett Garrett. I'm currently a student at UCSD going into my third year <hes> <hes> longtime client of fitness quest through both my family. My sister has gone here for multiple years. <hes> I'm actually going on seven years as a client. I'm here now and I intern last year and this is actually my second year interning finished quest and the main reason behind that is just the community. It's such an uplifting feeling being here with all the other interns and all the other coaches an environment of just motivation and optimism. That's just <hes> something I wanted in my life. It's something good to have so second time intern. Did you pass the first time I think the past because they brought me back nice good guys. You're looking at five and listen to five great interns on this end today. All we're doing is opening up for questions of who wants to go first and whatever you have question wise. Let's rock and roll tune in go ahead all right. Td I got a I got a question that I was thinking of. It's been on my mind for a while. While since I was in deficit training as a high schooler so your success and with the success of fitness has a gym the two different brands how come there was never are bigger expansion because there's forty two forty two forty one staff Yup Yup and if you look at the space when I walk in you're kind of like wait seriously you kind of you know. Take a step back and then you kinda grow to appreciate it more but how come there was never a bigger expansion into like a more of a warehouse type facility or more of a conventional right. That's it's a common question. I get actually is you know why why don't you have this twenty or thirty thousand square foot warehouse and people come in expecting that and they walk in and we have eight thousand square feet an eight thousand square feet is distributed between three thousand square feet upstairs in the roots and then five thousand square feet down here but two thousand square feet of this down here is absolutely massage therapy physical physical therapy locker room and everything else and <hes> you know believe it or not when when I was growing the business I always wanted to be the best. I never wanted to be the biggest. I always want to be the best and I remember wing cotton asking me about <hes> you. WanNa have won five hundred. I said I want to have one. I want the best one and I WANNA make sure people fly in from all over the world and come train with me and one thing I've realized over the last nineteen years is that it's not the size of the business that makes you successful well. It's the culture that you create in the community that you create your business. One of the secret sauce is that we have offended question is that we're not twenty thousand square feet. It's because the culture culture here is contained in a space that you can get this energy electric. You guys have felt that this summer with Alex and the training in that and that's part of the the secret sauce and I it took me a while they realized that because my mic growth mindset so I was like yeah we gotta get bigger and bigger and bigger but I've learned that bigger is better better better. Bigger isn't better better is better so my ego sometimes like man we should have that big space but Mike we will know because my love and my passion isn't and managing brick and mortar. It's not in growing in really changing lives and one thing of the last let's say five years especially the last two years. I realized as we've grown our our our brand with social show media and digital is that we don't need more or bigger brick and mortar to impact more lives right so what we have done now and I made a strategic decision when we expanded expanded down here in two thousand six took on the extra five thousand square feet is much of my growth in the last few years has been outside of the brick and mortar. It's been with growing my mastermind group. We have now one hundred eighty seven fire breathing dragons where I could digitally literally coach trainers worldwide we actually have a coaching program that just launched to every day high-performers MOMS and Dads grandmas GRANDPA's who want the most out of life in training and mindset and all that so what I realized is there's so many ways to grow and it's not always defined by having brick and mortar matter of fact unless you know you on brick and mortar. I would suggest maybe not having brick and mortar unless you know you wanna be really like doc here all the time so for me. That's the reason why we haven't grown to more quote space. It's been more. I want to grow in different areas. I want to write my books and speak more and and grow the mastermind group in the coaching groups in all of that as well right I'll say or I'll add one thing onto. What I've experienced has client is at you. You you meet people yummy different. You're not sure anyway just because you're so closing share the same space and I'll go for a while although you although you may never be in a training session with them you come to grow a a <hes> relationship bond some sort of friendship between the two that's part of the it's part of the tactic tripping over each others. You have to get to know each other right when when you have let's say eight ten twelve trainings actually going on some of those are small groups one of the things. I've always said since day one or two thousand is I won't ever trainer introducing their a client to another client always introducing why because.

"Industry. It's a podcast someone you listened to. I simply ask you to spend more time with them. Listening to them learning from them watching them and all of a sudden your words will start to become just like there's and then also lastly number seven is a take time off to work on you. You heard it before you know spend more time working on your business not just in your business. How about taking more time off to work on you right. So what is that. You got to schedule the time so living inspiration living inspired tired. Sometimes you'll say hey todd was ever time when you were not inspired and when i hear that question from you it made me think when it was i not inspired. Let me give you a story of a time. When i was not inspired a time that was somewhat difficult in my life i i had just graduated graduate school and it was about may of one thousand nine hundred ninety nine so i had not yet opened. My business may nine thousand nine step back. I was at san diego state and may may i get my degree and what happens after that. I apply for a position as a full-time strength strength conditioning coach and professor at a community college called the college of the canyons in los angeles california and lo and behold august one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. I offered the position if the first tenure track position in the the state of california. The job was paying about sixty thousand dollars. Now folks that. That's a lot of money now. That was a lot of money then an and whenever i'm making a big decision there's several things i do. I pray about it. I think about it. I trust my gut and i talked the people who i'm closest with and in august nineteen ninety nine i turn that position down. I said had no thank. You and i still remember the other voice on the phone. I said no thank you. I'm not going to accept the job the person on the phone said. Are you sure you wanna turn this position down. This position doesn't come around very often. I said no. I appreciate it. Thank you very much but where i'm at right now at this point in my life i'm going to <hes> stay put in san diego now. You listen to that you probably t._d. What are you thinking and i'm gonna tell you flat lot out that after that and turn it down. I was close to as depressed as i've ever been. I didn't turn that down because i had another job. I didn't have another the job matter of fact. I was free floating between many different positions. I was a trainer. I was a massage therapist. I was an adjunct faculty member at a community college college but i didn't have a quote career yet at that point well. One of the reasons why i turned that position down was because i was dating a girl who i met in college college and i didn't know at that point but that girl was eventually going to become my wife and her name is melanie and sometimes you gotta sacrifice in your life unbelievable opportunities because it doesn't fit with where you wanna go because i remember august august september october november four months being so down about what am i going to do with my life. What am i going to do. And where am i going to go and i wasn't happy with what i was doing. I knew i was worth more than what i was doing. Well that was one point that i wasn't inspired but that was also the impetus to then n. Ultimately really seek out the next phase of what i was going to do in life so my friends living inspired. Sometimes you're going to be inspired art and sometimes you're not when you're not you have to lean on your faith. You've got do the things. I just shared you. Gotta make sure working out and you're eating right. You're listening to podcasts. You're really have after dial in to your best practices so you can get back in spirit. That's live inspired. M is called master your craft. Let's say master your craft right. M ma master your craft malcolm glad we'll talk about the ten thousand an hour rule right. It takes about ten thousand hours or about ten years to become an expert at something. Well being now a coach at a trainer for the last nineteen eighteen years at fitness quest ten. I've had an inside look at some of the world's best athletes my first athlete ladainian tomlinson who was the first overall pick pick for the san diego chargers. I had the opportunity to work with him for nine seasons and getting to see him enshrined at canton in the hall of fame just a couple a couple of years ago was one of the career highlights of my life and for the last seventeen years his training partner <hes> in in working with drew brees the the quarterback for the new orleans saints. I had a chance to see when you talk about master your craft some of the best in the world at what they do the darren sproles the jerrell mccoy's zac urges the chase daniel's the mike chandler's m._m._a. Fighter mike chandler and a slew of my minor league baseball guys who are on the fringe of making it to the major league. It takes work mastering. Your craft takes work lots and lots of work. Wherever ever you are in your career today about mastering your crapping great at what you do. It's not a one or two or three year thing. It takes delayed gratification. It takes the grind in the grit for it to be the best you can possibly be and breezes is a classic example of that right. It's not just what you see on t._v. It's the preparation and i can count on one hand. The number of any scheduled sessions he's had in seventeen years that he's ever missed the preparation too hard work to watching the film that no one sees also the best of the best of the mindset of success the desire to be the best the desire to be the best as an athlete as an entrepreneur as a parent. Whatever it is that you do if you're an uber driver and you listen to us right now. Fantastic be the best uber driver that there is in the world old. If you work at home depot you work at a starbucks and other coffee shop. Be the best server waiter waitress bartender police east officers firemen. Whatever it is that you do be the best that have the desire to be the best. I think about the best in the world i think about leadership again using these athletes as an example drew brings out the best in his team and having seen him play for the san diego geico chargers and now of course the new orleans saints whenever drew brings in his teammates to train at fitness ten he has the uncanny ability to tap happen to these guys and get them to perform at a higher level. If you're a high school athlete today boy or girl. Do you have the ability to get the most host out of your teammates. Do you push them down or do you lift them up. If you're at an organization right now and you work for an organization are you at the water cooler and and your and your squabbling and gossiping about what's not right at the office or you lifting people up in finding what's good at that job and that opportunity unity. That's a mindset that's leadership and what we need. In this world is more strong leaders that bring out the best in their teammates in other people regardless of the title in your position and then using drew as an example here in and <hes> mastering your craft i was on a mastermind call a few two years back and drew driving to training camp and he used an acronym that i still use to this date. I share it with you. On the inaugural ogle episode of the impact podcast as called faith matches faith in god but faith standing for fortitude means strength breath attitude is positive. I stands for integrity. Do what is right when no one else is watching t trust trusting your teammates trust in god trust in your family and most importantly trusting yourself trusting yourself. No one else does and then humility humility now. That's a biblical term but humility is when things are going right and things are going great and your champion that you're humble when you're winning inning and when you're down in the pit and you're in the valleys you're humble knowing that there's always going to be tomorrow and they'll be light that will be shining so faith my friends. We talk about master. Your craft is carol dwell in the book mindset. Are you a person of growth mindset. My plea to you is to make make sure that you prepare like heck that you work your tail off at you have the mindset and desire to be the best that you're a leader in your middle school in your high school your college or university within your organization sation your operation who your sports team and that you always stay hungry and you always stay humble. Let's go to the next letter in the acronym impact. It's p. Play at world class play world class my friend. You've heard me say before and i'll say say to the day i die. Get your mind right now. Say if you're out in the in the neighborhood walking right now. They're gonna think you're crazy can look at you look kuku. That's okay. Just tell me listening to the podcast. Say get your mind right. Get you my right yeah. That's right. Get your mind right but what if you're like hey t._d. My mind's not right right now or you're really scared because you're going through a tough time right now. Maybe you've had healthcare. Maybe you're going through a tough time at work. You know i gotta be honest with you just moments before i turn this microphone on for my first episode of the impact podcast. I had a little bit of jitters. I was a little bit the nervous i that's okay. That's okay matter of fact. That's when you know you're playing in the right stratosphere. I gotta i gotta admit in late nineteen ninety nine when i told you just earlier about being inspired when i wasn't inspired. It's often when you're in your valley's. Your deepest valleys right around the corner is when your greatest opportunities are going to be there because in november one thousand nine hundred ninety nine as i was searching for my location to open up my studio despite having no money no clients and no business plan. I said yes to an opportunity to work at a health healthshare in a place called script ranch san diego now. I had no idea where script ranch san diego was. It was about twenty five minutes north of downtown but i was at a health fair and i was doing massage therapy. I just finished my graduate thesis work which was actually on the physiological and psychological effects of massage therapy on stress stress and anxiety so a company had asked me to come do some seated massage with my massage chair at this this place of work and a gal there says do you know of any yoga studios pilates studios polite studios or training studios in the area. I said i have absolutely no idea where any city is because i don't even know where the heck i am and she laughs and she says you're in script ranch as a matter of fact. If you're in this business you should look at opening a studio around here well well. She didn't need to say that twice. Because that afternoon i went around and drove around that town of script ranch and lo and behold i found.
