This is part 2 of a series that I want to do for you guys. We are taking a deeper look at how we can apply a lot of the amazing content we have heard in the 90-days and how to action it in our own lives.
In part 1, earlier this week, we went through some affirmations for everyone. You should still be feeling confident and oozing with energy. If you have not checked that episode out, feel free to take a listen here.
Have you enjoyed the last 90-days as much as I have?
What kind of results have you achieved in the last quarter?
In TICM 47, I talked about this one tool that I have been experimenting with called the intention letter. Essentially, it combines visualization and imagination into an actual actionable tool and you write yourself a letter 90-days from now, but you do it in the past tense.
For ex: I wrote, I spoke at this conference and you won’t believe what happened. I also got this speaking opportunity. So… that actually happened.
I spoke at Podfest in Tampa and by the end of the conference, I had a full blown course underway and I found out that I am going to be speaking at Podcast Movement. Crazy right?
Example 1: I wrote about this event company that we started, it's called Toronto Internet Marketers
Example 2: I wrote that I wanted to build up my email list to the 10,000 mark, but I never wrote down in detail how I am going to go about getting the 10,000. Same thing for monthly income. I had a range of 8-12k per month. And I didn’t hit this either as I could have been more specific in terms of the actions I wanted to take. For example, I wrote, sell the online course. I should have written, "sell podcasting creators course at a specific price pt and will generate x amount over this period." That is more specific and would be easier to visualize. But nonetheless, I am grateful that I made a decent income from launching the podcasting course.
Let me give you a little more context.
I have this course that helps messengers and entrepreneurs launch #1 podcasts just like I did in the beginning and help them get their message out to the world in a bigger way. The piggybacking that I have been able to leverage through the podcast and just the pure learning has been life changing. I have learned how to leverage my front-end, my podcast, my videos, my social media to funnel people to my back-end, courses, email lists, what have you . I have about a big group of students going through the program now and it's exciting to see other entrepreneurs and messengers get ready to present their message to the world in a bigger way.
Because I really go all out in the sessions, they have been overwhelmed with each of their projects and that’s where most of my time have gone the last few weeks. It’s a 6-week accelerator program with direct coaching from me, I throw in my 1-on-1 time and a private community behind it all.
If you are listening and you are a messenger or entrepreneur looking to launch your show in the next 4 months, then I would love to help you out. Unfortunately, we have no openings right now. We are looking to start a new cohort starting in May, though.
Feel free to go to www.theinnerchangemaker.com/waitlist and get on the waitlist for this accelerator program.

Where do you stand? What level of success do you want for your life?
In this personal episode, I get us to realize our greatness through affirmations and mindset shifts.
This is a 2-part series for a BETTER YOU where we start with affirmations (This episode) and we address your 90-day intention in the (next episode.)

Jonathan is the co-founder of refound, a management and leadership coaching organization dedicated to helping managers and employees enact change from the inside and out and former CEO of EMyth (the company that brought us the wonderful books The EMyth and The EMyth Revisited).
Honestly, if you have not heard of e-myth, where have you been? It’s getting up there as one of those timeless classics in terms of business books.
Well, since Jonathan’s time there, he has grown into a successful entrepreneur in his own right and an author now.
He came on the show today and shares with us his insights on how the e-myth framework still applies in today’s business markets.
Jonathan talks to us about collaboration and finding the right business partners in business.
At first glance, it seems like we are pitting employees against entrepreneurs, but I promise, its’ actually about culture and teamwork.
We do a deep dive on "culture" and what this means for us as entrepreneurs and solo-preneurs and how we can look to attract the right partners and superstar teammates.
I get it. You are thinking culture?? Seriously Jay…
It lacks the sexiness of seven-figure xyz or marketing strategy hack over here, but culture, specifically team culture and building teams is a topic I have grown to be fascinated by.
As I have matured even with doing the show, and in my business, building a team has never been more crucial and I get kinda schooled in this episode, which is part of the reason why I love these conversations.
This episode is all about teamwork, delegation, and creating the right partnerships.
We also mention his NEW and upcoming book, "Good Authority - How to become the leader your team is waiting for"
However, if you want to read the first couple chapters of the book, please visit goodauthoritybook.com to download your free chapters.

Thank you to all your wonderful people for supporting and following me on this journey.
Part of this is a replay from last year. If you have not heard the episode on self-love #61, you gotta check that out first :)
This is a personal episode. It is something that I feel compelled to share.
Validating ourselves and our journey has led me to realize the many ups and downs in my life.
It has led me to embrace all aspects of myself and it is one of the most honest exercises we can do.
I invite you to join me on this episode and explore this side of yourself.

Jason Connell is a world traveler, a world class speaker and writer who teaches confidence, self-love, and self-compassion.
He's worked with everyone from Senior members of the Obama administration and professional athletes to middle school students and emerging entrepreneurs.
He is one of the most genuine people I have had the chance to interview on the show. In this interview, we do a deep dive on the topic of self-love and self-compassion.
Jason gives us the real deal on how to tactically approach our inner work and it is evident within seconds into the conversation.
In other words, he is not here to sugar coat anything for us.
He also tells us why he believes the saying of “fake it till you make it” is also complete bullshit! We also talk about Finding the courage to trust yourself and your intuition. Which I know for a lot of us listening, we can always use for help in terms of personal growth and move forward to our projects with more love and more courage. So total behind the scenes moment, we were actually supposed to chat about how to make money from public speaking. Obviously, I wanted to hear it for my business, but I thought you would find value out of that.

"How do you get everything done so efficient?" The overly simple answer is FOCUS.
But used in a very specific manner.
It was a been a while since it was just us. The sound of my voice and your ears.
So much has happened in the last 6-8 weeks that it’s hard to know where to start.
Enough about the past and what has happened, let’s talk about right now.
It’s March. Perhaps you are like me, things are happening at 100 mph in your life.
Perhaps you are booking summer plans?
Perhaps this year is not what you imagined...
Not matter where you are at, let’s bring our focus to what matters most.
This is two-fold. Your grand vision and at the same time knowing the next tactical move.
People forget. It was less than 90 days ago when we started 2016. Whether you set a new years resolution or not is beside the point.
I am talking about setting intentions.
You probably set an intention somewhere along the way and said to yourself, I would really like to do this one thing this year.
Or I hope I keep myself open. Or I want to incorporate this habit.
Whatever it is that you set on doing, its either in the midst of happening or its not happening at all.
It’s chaotic right now. I get it. People are getting new opportunities, perhaps you are listening to this and you lost an opportunity, which in turn gives that that new opportunity.
Here is the thing, it is nice to be moving at a 100 mph, but we have to think about whats important.
Why are you doing what you are doing?
We forget, it can all end tomorrow.
It is likely, probably not. But imagine for a few seconds that it does.
If it was all gone tomorrow, would you be happy being and doing exactly what you are doing?
Not just happy, but beaming with joy. Almost as if you feel you are exactly where you need to be.
Sure, it would be nice if you were a little more ahead. Or if you are behind, then it would definitely feel nice to be ahead, but are you on your way to where you need to be.
Because if you are, you feel it.
You already know what I am talking about.
You are living in total alignment and you are loving it.
But let’s help our friends that might not be 100% there.
Perhaps you feel it a bit, or you know you are not suppose to be where you are. Maybe you lose sight of your "why" and you don’t know how to fix it.
Here is an exercise from a recent book that I read by Gary Keller, The One Thing.
It’s called the "focus question"
You simply asked yourself, "what is the one thing that you can do thus by doing it, everything will be easier or unnecessary?"
This question needs to be asked on two levels. Macro and micro.
So let’s start at a macro level – what do you need to focus on that by doing so, everything will be easier.
Perhaps it is your career or your business that you need to fix and focus on.
The micro level – is the most important first step that you need to take right now so that you are moving forward in the direction of your macro vision.
Example, perhaps it's making 5 sales calls, or sending 5 proposals. Whatever it is, it's all about figuring out the most important task and doing it.
Does that make sense?
Imagine a zooming in and zooming out of your life plan here.
You want to be able to focus on what matters, and execute on the tactical level right away.
The rest is honestly irreverent.
I found this exercise quite useful as there are TONs of new opportunities that have been coming up, but I am learning to say "no" and having to remind myself to focus on what really matters.
There's a beautiful quote from Mark Twain about success "The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one."
That's more or less what you are doing here.
Getting started on what is important. Forget the noise, just focus on your grand vision (the macro part) and then focus on the next step (the micro part.)
I hope that makes sense and I hope that helps you feel a little less overwhelmed while we are attacking this year.
I have so much to give and I have so much amazing content in the pipeline for you guys.
Try this method and let me know how it goes.

How would you like to learn about manifesting wealth?
How about your dream life?
Bob Proctor is a legend in the personal development industry and has been revolutionizing the game for the last 55 years.
He is most famous for being apart of the Movie and book the Secret and has shared the stage with the likes of Tony Robbins, Les Brown, Richard Branson and the list really can go on.
In short, Bob is a pure legend. So you can imagine how nervous I was when we got to the interviewed.
We cover EVERYTHING in this conversation. From his rise to fame to how we got started at 26 years of age.
He tells us how we can activate our lives with the simple technique of imagination.
He tells us why making six figures is not great, and how you can start making seven figures in your life
He breaks down for us how to leverage what he calls paradigms and how we can start re-programming our subconscious to match the results we want to see in our lives.
Man…How excited are you?!
This is why I do this show. To get the BEST possible humans in the world to share their knowledge openly and candidly with us.
