HOP #57: How to find and follow your inner voice with Laura Powers (@thatlaurapowers)

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #57

How to find and follow your inner voice with Laura Powers (@thatlaurapowers)

Have you ever had a moment in your life, where you had this voice inside your head trying to guide you?

You have two options – ignore and accept the outcome (and usually end up kicking yourself for ‘not trusting your gut’), or embrace it and ‘follow your heart’…

This episode’s guest has made a living from listening to these voices and helping people to communicate with spirits. When Laura first reached out to me, I was so drawn to her work. Honestly, I think everyone I know has a ghost story or two, so naturally, I had to ask about how she realized she had this skill and then more importantly when she realized the value in it – Laura’s answer blew me away.

Laura had known she had the ability to connect with spirits from an early age, but she feared the criticism that would come along with sharing her gift (something I think many of us relate to). Over the course of her career, she held numerous jobs, but she always felt like she had a greater calling and shortly after the financial collapse of 2008, she took action and has never looked back.

Laura Powers quickly rose to the top in her field in Lafayette, Colorado to Denver, Colorado, finally becoming one of the top in her field in Los Angeles in a matter of three years. She also totally transformed physically, going from unhappy, very sick, on sleeping pills, unemployed, in a bad marriage, and overweight (50 pounds heavier than I am today) to being healthy, fit, and living a life she loves.

Laura is also the author of 5 Adult Books, and 1 Children’s book, all of them available on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Laura-Powers/e/B009HW4YRW

What will you learn on this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • The importance of finding and listening to your inner voice
  • Why you should be open to the experiences around you
  • How to avoid letting fear control your life
  • Why you need to start chasing your dream immediately (no matter what)

HOP #52: Why you need to watch out for purple sweaters with Matt McWilliams

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #50 with Matt McWilliams

Why you need to avoid Purple Sweaters

We all need to be pushed into the deep end once in a while…

I had an opportunity to talk with Matt McWilliams a few times before having him on the podcast, as well as participating in a number of affiliate launches for some of his clients. For those of you who don’t know what an affiliate launch is, he explains it around the 5-minute mark of this episode, but for those reading, it is essentially a team of people (affiliates) who are paid a commission for promoting your product.

Matt’s story blew me away because the big aha moment when he knew he needed to build his own business came down to a purple sweater!

Most of his life, Matt dreamed of becoming a professional golfer. Something he did accomplish, but not something someone could live on, at least not well. When he was a kid, he and his close friend Hunter, often joked about how terrible it would be to fail at professional golf and end up teaching golf lessons to elderly women wearing purple sweaters…well as you can guess by the title of this show, that day came and it set off a chain of events for Matt that turned his life from frustration to a life of abundance and having the opportunity to work with one of his dream mentors (to hear Matt tell this story, skip to the 8-minute mark).

Everyone on life has that purple sweater – for many, it’s the 9-to-5, and missing out on quality time with their family. Don’t wait for the purple sweater – go build your future today.

What you will learn on this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • How to build a six figure side business
  • The importance of jumping into the deep end (not dipping your toe in the water)
  • Understanding that life is not about money
  • Why you need to monetize your passion and find a way to live your vacation

BONUSES from MattMcWilliams.com/HOP

Matt has graciously put together some incredible bonuses for you that will include his Guide to Affiliate Marketing, How to earn $100K, and his Guide to getting Affiliates to Promote your products (all insanely valuable stuff).

From near suicide to complete freedom and a 6-figure business (in 3 years)

The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast – Episode #50

How Milena Cerin went From near suicide to complete freedom and a 6-figure business (in 3 years)

don’t die with the music still left inside you

From the moment I hit record – my jaw hit the floor…

Normally, when I interview guests, there is a typical pattern that goes something like this; they went to school, graduated from university, realized they picked the wrong career and hate the field they are in, and then quit to pursue their passion.

Today could not be further from that pattern!

Today’s guest opens with a story about finding love, or so she thought and being left to fend for herself and her children with absolutely nothing – literally begging for just enough money to be passed under the basement door – where she had been relegated too – just to eat.

This level of pain led her to an incredibly dark place, where at times she contemplated suicide just so she and her kids wouldn’t have to suffer…

That pain led to one of the biggest revelations, and what is now a 6-figure business.

Milena Cerin is a coach, speaker, and best-selling author. She has built her business on the ashes of personal tragedy and built a 6 figure business in 3 years. She believes living life on purpose is what brings happiness and success. Her message is that everyone has a voice.

I could not more thrilled than to share this as my 50th episode because it is one of the most vulnerable, heart-warming and motivating interviews to date!

What will you learn in this episode of The Happiness of Pursuit Podcast:

  • How to live life on purpose
  • The reason you must embrace your childlike curiosity
  • How gratitude saved Milena’s life
  • How to discover the unique gift inside each and every one of us

How Jordan Strauss survived 2 strokes at 31 and created a business helping people change their lives

When I doing the research for this interview, I was so humbled by Jordan’s story…

At the age of 31, Jordan suffered from 2 strokes – 2 strokes!

The same day I interviewed Jordan I was complaining about my 1 1/2 hour commute and this interview was EXACTLY what I needed to help me reset my thinking – to be grateful for the gifts I have, and the gifts I have to share with others.

What was even more surprising, was how Jordan kept his focus on building his business to teach people how to play guitar…

After years of being told that I could never make a living with music, I combined my passion for guitar, love of working with others into a full time career.

This interview is one of the most character-defining interviews I have had to date and I know you will find the motivation to help you get started on pursuing whatever dream you have been putting off.

For this episode’s guest, she didn’t care – she just went for it 110%!

She is the youngest entrepreneur we have had on this show and at 19 years old, has already built an exploding business by sharing her passion for fitness and mindset. She didn’t even think about how competitive the online health space was – she just knew that she was passionate about how health, fitness and, the right mindset changed her life and she was going to share the gift with the world.

Within the first 30 seconds of the show, you will be shocked at how much wisdom she has already accumulated as an entrepreneur. What she shares in the episode is something you would expect from someone with 20+ years of experience.

  • How to adopt a positive mindset
  • Why you need to avoid negative self-talk
  • How to accomplish big goals (including starting a business at any age)
