How do you think about creating wealth… or do you even think about it?   In this episode, we reveal the mindset required to create a net worth of $20M, $100M, or even more. The people we are talking about today did not inherit their money – they just think differently about wealth creation.   To teach us about this mindset, we are talking to Richard C. Wilson, CEO of the Family Office Club Association, the largest community in the industry with offices that manage in excess of $1 Trillion in Assets Under Management.     In this episode, you will learn... [9:30] The strategic habits that can make your someday vision a reality. [13:50] How to identify what you should be focusing on learning. [23:00] What Richard’s clients focus on to create a long-term competitive advantage. [26:50] Where you should invest your funds. [32:30] The ONE thing you can do, over time, to make an executive team opportunity easier or unnecessary.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: The people who achieve extraordinary financial success, in Richard’s experience, didn’t get there through diversification – they got there through focus and planning.   They understood what the big, long-term goal was and they made sure their actions, every day, were aligned and in integrity with their vision.   Of everything you heard in this episode, what’s the ONE thing you can do to make achieving that lifestyle easier or unnecessary? Think BIG, and then go really small.   Links & Tools From This Episode Learn more at familyoffices.com Connect with Richard: Twitter | LinkedIn Want to join Jay & Geoff for the very first The ONE Thing Mid-Year Reset Retreat (June 23rd & 24th in Austin, TX)?

Are you doing the same thing every day, working hard, without actually living your purpose?   Sometimes it takes something catastrophic to compel us to do something different, or to take an action that we previously didn’t have the confidence to take.   For Jeff Sanders, host of The 5 AM Miracle Podcast, it took being hospitalized for him to realize that most of the things on his calendar simply didn’t matter. Jeff completely changed the way he manages his time, and the experience prompted him write a book called The Free Time Formula. In this episode, Jeff shares how he schedules his time, how he chooses what to invest his time in, and what you can do to begin taking action today.     In this episode you will learn... [4:40] How to look at your calendar in an entirely new way. [7:00] Why you don’t need to (and shouldn’t) fill every time block on your schedule with a task. [14:10] How you can optimize your time by utilizing your strengths. [18:00] How to begin auditing your time & identifying the changes you need to make. [20:40] The ONE thing that makes everything easier or unnecessary, when it comes to acting in order of priority.   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: We urge you to take Jeff’s story as an opportunity to pause and reflect; if you continue to do what you have been doing, every day for five years, what will your life look like? Are you living the life you want to be living?   If you want to make a change, first look at the seven circles: your spirituality, physical health, personal life, relationships, jobs, business, and finances. Now choose just one area and ask the focusing question: What is the smallest domino that you CAN knock over that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, in your world?   Keep asking that question until the answer is something so small, so doable, that it almost seems too easy. Think big, but go small – and prove to yourself that you can knock that lead domino down today.   Links & Tools From This Episode Connect with Jeff: jeffsanders.com | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram Listen: The 5 AM Miracle Podcast Read: The Free Time Formula   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!

Today, we want to take you on a journey.   We host this podcast to show you new ways to live The ONE Thing at a higher level, and one of the ways that we learn best is through story, or through other people’s experiences.   Our guest, Dan Quiggle, was well on his way to building a successful business – but the number of hours he worked prevented him from doing the thing that mattered most: being a father who was present for his daughter. While you listen to Dan’s story, assess where you are in your journey: Are you striking the right work-life counterbalance for you? Are you holding onto tasks that are limiting your impact? What does it mean to show up for the people who matter most in your life?     In this episode you will learn... [2:20] Why work-life balance doesn’t exist. [6:40] How you can build a business that scales without you. [10:30] The ONE thing that separates successful people from extraordinary leaders. [14:05] How you can practice work-life presence. [19:20] What you can do to transition from work mode to family mode (and vice versa).   The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What was the ONE thing from this episode that resonated most with you?   For us, it was when Dan asked, “Who’s getting the worst of you?” Many of us consider being a parent or spouse as the more important role in our lives, but too often, we give so much energy to work that our family gets the worst of us.   So what’s the ONE thing you can do to show up as best version of yourself in the role that is most important to you? Continue to ask yourself that question until you narrow it down to one, specific, measurable activity that you CAN do.

Gary Keller once said, “Sometimes you’re failing so slowly that you think you’re succeeding.” If you continue to act the way you are now, in the long term, what do you think will happen? This is the time of year to pause and ask ourselves these questions; it’s time for a reset.   We’re bringing this model to you for the first time – a chance for you to reflect on how things are going, re-evaluate what’s working, simplify your approach, establish a new plan, and time block it.

Imagine each of the seven circles of your life – spirituality, physical health, personal life, relationships, your job, your business, and your finances – is a ball, and you are juggling them. What happens if you drop the relationship ball?   If you drop that ball, it breaks. We find that people often spend so much time focusing on their job, business, and finances that they, ultimately, end up neglecting their relationships, spirituality, health, and personal life.   Jordan Harbinger, titular host of The Jordan Harbinger Show, has been on a decades-long journey learning how to form powerful relationships and network in a way that brings results – as opposed to what a lot of us do, which is NOT working. In this episode, Jordan is going to share how you can really distinguish yourself and form relationships that matter.     The ONE Thing to Implement From This Episode: What is the ONE thing from this episode that will make everything else easier or unnecessary, when it comes to your relationships?   We really resonated with the idea that you need to stand out – you just have to be a little bit different. And this doesn’t even have to be a big thing! When everyone else is just clicking Like on Facebook, are you willing to actually send a text? And if you aren’t willing to do those things… are the quality of your relationships reflect of what you’re putting in?   Remember: build the well before you need to use it; bring value to other people FIRST, not expecting anything in return.   In this episode you will learn... [9:00] The 20% work that leads to 80% of results, when it comes to forming the right relationships. [16:05] How you can become the type of person who brings value to others. [19:05] Why only focusing on your particular skill set, or on what you already know, is hugely limiting. [27:00] What you need to know about making an ask. [31:50] The ONE thing that most people currently aren’t doing that can completely change everything. [36:00] The most important people you should be connecting with. [40:00] How you can leverage “The Benjamin Franklin Effect.”   AWESOME FREE RESOURCES FOR YOU!
