May 15, 2020

Ep #42 - My guest this week is Tom Burden, a former Air Force F-16 weapons mechanic, that went on to create and sell Grypmat, a flexible, non-slip rubber mat he invented to hold tools. He raised $700,000 to build the business from Kickstarter and Shark Tank, where backers included Richard Branson. The product has gone on to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine and helped Tom to be featured in the Forbes 30 Under 30. The business has grown to doing $4 million in revenue in 2019, more than double what it brought in during 2018. Tom is now planning an expansion into retail, with a lower-priced, smaller-version of the Grypmat for home mechanics.

April 10, 2020

Ep 37 - My guest today is Leigh Daniel, an attorney at law, that started her career being celebrated as a "mean" and results-driven lawyer. After serving as a successful divorce attorney for years, she came to a point where she felt personally miserable and knew that something had to change. As a heart-centered entrepreneur, Leigh began to adopt the belief that she could retain her effectiveness as an attorney without the negative tactics and practices that were creating a reputation incongruent to her core self.

--

Leigh went on to brand her law practice as Leigh Daniel Law: Advocates of Positive Change. On her website, she describes the firm's service by stating "we represent family law cases for people facing major life changes that are focused on coming out the other side a better person." With a similar approach, she has gone on to found 'Project Positive Change' which is a hub for heart-centered entrepreneurs to come together and create a positive impact in the business world.

--

Beyond her law practice and Project Positive Change, Leigh also owns and operates Leigh Acres, a non-profit that provides a place of respite for people facing challenges in their life.

Opher Brayer on the Behaviors and Habits That Scale Businesses…

April 3, 2020

Ep 36 - My guest today is Opher Brayer, the founder of the Brayer Group and an expert in scaling businesses and talent development. Opher is a business mentor, coach, teacher, methodologist and creator. His history is intertwined with the history of his native Israel. During his early years, he witnessed holocaust refugees fighting for their survival against the enemies surrounding them. Later on, he experienced the military glory of Israel and the country’s admiration for its military rise. Following that, he helped grow the advanced generation of talents in the fields of arts, science, and business. Some were involved later in cyber technology and security in the 8200 unit and then they went on to grow the startup business environment in Israel.

 

Since 1984, Opher has been researching, constructing, and applying unique methodologies, which have demonstrated that people can develop multi-disciplinary talent and the innovators’ mind contrary to the popularly held concept that talent is “natural” and “inborn”.

Zach Zelner, 5x Company Founder Who Scaled a Sock Company to $8M in 30 Days, Talks Growth Strategies…

March 13, 2020

Ep #33 - Zach Zelner is an accomplished founder of multiple seven+ figure companies, he's a self-proclaimed fast growth enthusiast and he's only 25 years old. Zach dropped out of FSU to start his first company, Z-Baked, back in 2012 with only $124 to his name. This company was started out of his apartment and provided a cookie delivery service which he successfully scaled to 3 retail locations and over 100 employees.

In 2015, Zach went on to found Penny Delivers, a food delivery service, that he grew to $10M in revenue before the company was acquired. In his short, but extensive career, he has founded five companies including Penny Delivers, DocMJ, Z Baked, PupSocks, and Purafina. DocMJ was launched in August of 2016 to serve the medical cannabis industry in the state of Florida. Zach grew this company to 15 clinics across the state before exiting. In one of his most impressive accomplishments, Zach launched an ecommerce company called PupSocks and scaled it to $8M in revenue within the first 30 days. This company sold custom printed socks featuring customer-submitted pet photos. He continues to run PupSocks currently along with another startup called Purfina which launched in 2019 and provides super premium pet supplements.

In today's interview, Zach and I discuss his growth strategies for scaling these companies along with some of the mistakes he made along the way.
