Ep #219 - In a very special episode of The Driven Entrepreneur podcast, I'm joined by actor, TV host and media personality Dean Cain. If you don't know Dean, he's most popular for portraying the man of steel, Superman, on the 90's TV show "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman." Beyond his well-known acting reputation, he's also a Princeton graduate and a former professional football player where he signed with the Buffalo Bills before being injured. You may have seen him hosting 'The Today Show,' appearing on Fox News and in several TV and film roles he's taken on throughout his career. In this interview, we go into Dean's backstory, what it was like growing up with parents in show business and how his upbringing shaped his life. Of course, I ask a couple questions about his experience playing Superman along with Teri Hatcher as Lois Lane. We also go into his current work, his social media activity and what's next for him.   Check out Dean Cain's full filmography on IMDB at: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001002/   Follow Dean Cain on Twitter: https://twitter.com/realdeancain   Whether you are new to The Driven Entrepreneur Podcast or are a fan, please don't forget to rate, review and subscribe to the show.

Ep 187 - Welcome to Part 5 of my 5-part miniseries titled, "Winning With Words." This episode is titled "Say It Like You Mean It" and our conversation focuses around the subject of tonality. The way we use our words and the emphasis we put on them can change the meaning of what we say and especially how people interpret what we say. The classic example of this is when kids issue a half-hearted apology only to be rebuked with the phrase, "Say it like you mean it."

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

Ep #178 - Derek Gallimore, the founder of Outsource Accelerator, joins me on the show this week to discuss the current state of the outsourcing industry and how his company goes about creating sustainability and maintaining ethical standards in this sector. Derek is passionate about helping entrepreneurs to implement outsourcing for certain areas of their businesses. He has become driven to spread this message after creating massive success for his own companies and finding that his process can be replicated by others to achieve similar results. Derek Gallimore's blend of extensive international business and travel experience means that outsourcing came relatively naturally to him. Derek has been in business over 20 years, outsourcing for over seven years, and has lived in Manila, Philippines – the world’s outsourcing capital – for over three years. He has worked and lived in five countries and worked and traveled through dozens more. Having been in various businesses since 17 years old, Derek is a fully committed entrepreneur.  He has founded and bootstrapped two 8-figure businesses, enjoyed fantastic successes, as well as his fair share of challenges.  After more than 20 years in business, Derek has now set his sights on disrupting the outsourcing sector.

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

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

Ep # 139 - My guest this week is Jarrod Castillo, a peak performance coach for young adults and the creator of the WOLF method. Jarrod guides young adults and helps them to make the next big leap in their lives. He is a professional acrobat, a movement enthusiast, a multi-sport state level college champion, and an active participant in AcroYoga. Throughout his time in college, Jarrod completed over 300 hours of volunteer service, worked part-time, and graduated debt free. He earned Magna Cum Laude Honors with degrees in both Education and Psychology. Partway through college, he suffered a car accident that led to months of recovery and interrupted his life path. Almost immediately after the accident, he also suffered the loss of a very close friend. These two events led him into mental health issues and depression which created major difficulties in his life. Only after completing countless hours of personal development, reading, online education, workshops, seminars, meditation, and guidance from coaches and mentors, he was able to transcend the problems in his life. Jarrod's goal is to now use his education and experiences to provide other youths with the same support and encouragement he received so that they can too be on a fast track to success, fulfillment, and achievement.

Ep #131 - Adam Schaeuble, aka "The PHD" - Previously Heavy Dude - joins me on the show this week to discuss how he uses his personal story and experience to inspires others to transform their lives. Adam reached a low point early in his life when he was still in his twenties and tipping the scale at 327 pounds. Even at this young age, he began experiencing dangerous health consequences, so he made a decision to overhaul his life and fitness strategy. The result was over 100 pounds of weight loss and people noticing an incredible change.  Rather than being satisfied with only his own success, Adam felt inspired and took what he learned form his transformation journey to create a boot camp aimed at helping others. From this boot camp he was able to produce more than 35,000 pounds of weight loss from community members in his home town of Bloomington, IN. Adam found that helping others transform was a critical component to his journey. From his experience, he started The Million Pound Mission podcast where he continues to inspire large groups of people to make dramatic shifts in their health and lifestyles. His website and Instagram profile highlight members of his community who have also achieved incredible results.  He has set his sights on inspiring over one million pounds of healthy results through his podcast, coaching programs, and the Million Pound Mission Boot Camp. Adam recently started a second podcast called "Casting the Pod." With this podcast, he seeks to help other podcasts to solidify their dreams of being content producers and influencers.  Listen to Adam Schaeuble's Top Ranked Podcasts: Listen to "The Million Pound Mission" Podcast on iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/transformationcoach-me-podcast/id1138490044?mt=2 Listen to the "Casting the Pod" Podcast on iTunes: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/casting-the-pod-with-adam-schaeuble/id1439327697 Visit Adam's Website and Learn More: Visit Adam's "Transformation Coach" Website: https://www.transformationcoach.me/ Get Adam's "Transformation Battle Plan Workbook" for FREE: https://www.transformationcoach.me/workbook Get Adam's Book "The Third Component" on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Third-Component-process-exercise-nutrition/dp/1535034793 Follow Adam on Social Media: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/millionpoundmission/?hl=en LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/millionpoundmission/ Join Adam Schaeuble's "Defeat the Cheat" Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DefeatTheCheat/ Whether you are new to The Driven Entrepreneur Podcast or are a fan, please don't forget to rate, review and subscribe to the show.
