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.

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 #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.

Ep #118 - Chris Burns, AKA Mr. "Heart Fire," joins the show today to discuss how to become your greatest possible self. Clients hire Chris to hold them accountable so they can breakthrough their BS while he encourages them to be their best and achieve higher levels of personal and professional performance. Chris hit rock bottom at an early age and figured out how to bounce back stronger than ever. He has since spoken on stages across the United States, and over the last 2 years, he has interviewed more than 500 inspirational role models, influencers and leaders on his weekly, 12-hour live-streamed marathon and podcast called "Becoming Your Greatest Possible Self." In today's interview, I talk with Chris about overcoming a troubled and party-centered teenage life and finding self worth as I too went through a similar stage in my own life. Chris shares his early struggles with fitting in and the important of finding community. Chris found it difficult to let go of the shame and guilt that came with hitting rock bottom and getting arrested, but he learned that putting his past behind him was essential to be able to step into speaking and coaching along with sharing his story. He now believes that each of us can choose to make our stories mean anything. So, if this is true, why not choose an empowering meaning for your life's story.   Later in the interview we go behind the scenes regarding his 12-hour marathon podcast. We explore why and how he sets it up this way and talk about how it got started. Chris will share a bit about what he has learned from having 9 powerful interviews a day, and how you can lead your own version of it in your community as a coach, speaker, or entrepreneur. It's a powerful interview so enjoy!

Ep #111 - Today, I welcome Art Costello as my guest on the show. Art is an author and entrepreneur with a unique background as he served as a marine in Vietnam, played college and professional baseball, earned a degree in psychology, and has now created a personal development modality known as expectation therapy. He's virtually done it all and he still has plenty left in the tank. Art created expectation therapy which is a technique to achieve self mastery by letting go of expectations. Expectation Therapy works to transform how you and the world communicate, perceive, and process expectations. It aims to teach you that your expectations can transform your life for the better. It’s not what others expect of you that really matters, it’s how you react to your own self-expectations that have been developed throughout your years that count the most.

Ep #107 - What would happen to your family if you passed away suddenly? In today's epsiode, I sit down with Jay Gabrani, founder of Prepared Fathers, to discuss this exact question. After Jay's first child was born in 2005, he jumped into the world of real estate investing. Despite several challenges along the way, Jay built a multiple seven-figure real estate portfolio. That portfolio helped him take a multi-year sabbatical to deal with heartbreaking personal tragedy when his wife passed away in 2014. This experience lead Jay to reevaluate the purpose of his life while taking a multi year sabbatical. Before his wife passed away, Jay thought he was financially prepared. After going through the experience of being the executor of his wife's estate, he realized he wasn't. Today, Jay makes an impact raising his three children and empowering Fathers to secure their Family's Financial Future as the founder of Prepared Fathers. He achieves this through his one-on-one and group coaching programs and his daily podcast A Minute with Jay. He is a frequent podcast guest and does a limited number of speaking engagements.   Learn More About Prepared Fathers and Jay Gabrani: Prepared Fathers Website: www.preparedfathers.com/matt Jay Gabrani Website: https://www.jaygabrani.com/ Connect with Jay on Social Media: Facebook (Personal): https://www.facebook.com/jaygabrani Facebook (Prepared Fathers Page): https://www.facebook.com/preparedfathers/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jaygabrani/   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 #98 - Hey, it's Matt Brauning and I'm excited to share this episode because I will be covering the topic of radio interviews and how to crush it when you are on the air. If you ever have the chance to get yourself and your business in front of media outlets such as radio, television, podcasts or live events, it's important to understand what to expect and how to succeed within an interview. In today's discussion, I will share my top tips for holding interesting interviews that benefit both you and the host of the show you are on. To demonstrate how I handle interviews, I will first describe my interview strategies and then share a live radio interview that I did with Dr. Nita Vallens on KPFK with thousands of listeners. This interview was a fundraiser and I think you can learn a lot from paying attention to how I navigate the interview, the stories I share, and the transition we both make to the fundraising section. Also, listen to how the host handles her role and how we bounce back and forth off of each other. Take some notes, listen in, and enjoy the show.  As always, please remember to rate, review, and subscribe to the show if you have not already done so. We love to hear from you.

Ep #93 - "What you are expecting determines whether you will or will not be able to see the possibilities all around you." This is a quote by Daniel L. Castro and I recently shared this on my Instagram page (@mattbrauning). When I posted this, the word from this quote that really stuck out to me was "possibilities."  I wanted to do an episode this week that goes into some NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) concepts. NLP can be thought of as the study of excellence, the study of success, but it's also the study of the language of the mind. One of the biggest areas of language is called modal operators. There are several types of modal operators which is a fancy way of saying the mode in which we operate. It's how we walk through life and you are either walking through life in a world of possibility or in a world of necessity. We go pretty deep into this concept and discuss the difference between possibility words and necessity words. If you're interested in this stuff and want to learn it as part of your business, grab a pad of paper and a pen and take some notes. If it's not relevant to your business, listen up anyways because you're going to learn a lot from this discussion.  This episode is dropping on Christmas Day so Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our listeners.

Ep #92 - In this episode, I sit down with Jay Fiset, a Canadian farm boy turned entrepreneur, to go into his story. Let me start by giving some background on Jay. He is a best selling author, master facilitator, and mastermind trainer and has been in the business for over 3 decades. Jay is a student of human nature, an avid outdoorsman at 5 star hotels, and he can see and reflect your life mission within 5 minutes flat of meeting you. We discuss what it was like for Jay growing up in rural Canada, being left on his own to bike around town at age 12, and even how he started his first business. Jay shares how he bought his first motorcycle with "bottle-pickin" money (you'll have to listen to learn what it means!!) and how he turned a losing business around with no outside loans into a 7-figure enterprise. It's an amazing story and you won't want to miss it.

Ep #91 - "Patience is also a form of action." I recently put this post up on my Instagram page (@mattbrauning) and it had me thinking. Patience has been such an important theme in my life that I wanted to take some time and have a discussion about it.  There are two different ways to approach life: Passive / Waiting OR Active / Moving. Look at the season that you are in for your life. In our lives, there is a time for moving and a time for standing still. What season are you in and are you taking the appropriate action based on that season? I think this episode will get you thinking and provides lots of good insights.

Ep #73 - What's the secret to make your goals happen? Today I share one simple resource: FLEXIBILITY. The more flexible you can become in your goals approach, the more ways you can find to win. How can you take on more flexibility in life and what does it mean for you, what does it do for you? Perhaps you've found yourself not getting something done that you want to get done. When you find that, I take on the philosophy that the person with the most flexibility will always control the environment.  Today's discussion is all about flexibility and a lot of the content derives from Evolution Seminar's Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) content.  Listen in and enjoy the show.
