Capitalism.com with Ryan Daniel Moran

Very few people in the world have the ambition, drive, and talent to walk a billion dollar path. But Nathan Latka has proven already that he’s able to do it. He’s still in his 20s and has already built and sold a company for more money than most companies ever make. He’s a voracious reader and learns everything he can about entrepreneurism, billionaires, and how they go the where they are. Today’s conversation is a blunt look at why Nathan approaches business the way he does and where he’s headed. Your mind will be opened up by this one, guaranteed.

He’s made it a public goal to be a Billionaire by age 30.

There are many people who say that Nathan Latka has a big ego and he would totally agree with them. He says that he ego is actually his biggest asset. It’s that ego that has given him the belief that he can become a billionaire by the time he’s 30 years old - and he’s well on the path to achieve it. During the chat Ryan and Nathan chat about what it takes to be able to produce a billion dollars and how Nathan plans to do it. He also reveals some plans for his future that may be surprising, but definitely fit the scale at which he thinks.

What life is like on the billion dollar path Nathan Latka has set.

Nathan Latka boldly says that his life is happier than almost anyone who’s working a 40 hour a week job simply because he’s been able to build a lifestyle of absolute freedom. He’s built and sold a business for an astronomical price and now is investing his profits into things that can fuel his life long term. But he’s also assessing opportunities, looking for the one that will take him to the place where one billion dollars is not only possible, but inevitable. Join Ryan and Nathan as they range all over the place in this engaging talk about the quest for billionaire status.

Buy on cash and everything else is a bonus.

One of the things Nathan Latka is doing to fuel his billion dollar dream is studying and investing in real estate. When it comes to finding good investments he has a very simple philosophy: If the cash flow works, everything else is just a bonus. On this episode he walks through the numbers on his very first real estate deal to give an example of what he looks for in a good investment and tells about some other things he’s stepped into that are related to real estate but not quite the traditional route. You’ll find this very interesting.

Looking for something of lesser value to make it something of greater value.

Long term, what is a guy like Nathan Latka looking to sink his teeth into? The Presidency? Check. Other business ventures? Check. And when he surveys the entrepreneurial landscape he sees that the sharing economy has just gotten started. He’s looking for ways to leverage assets people already own - those things that are currently of lesser value - in ways that make them into items of greater value. He believes it’s a business model that not only will last long into the future, but will also change the future. Get inside the always moving mind of Nathan Latka, on this episode of Freedom Fast Lane.

There are so many variables and pitfalls - you’ve got to be clear on your business/market identity and exactly who it is you’re trying to serve with your products. And you’ve got to know where to find those people and the influencers who have a high profile in their eyes. Today’s episode is with two guys who have been members in the Freedom Fast Lane community for some time and are building a business just like that. Kevin and Jeremy’s supplement business is a great example of how you can build a great business on Amazon and then branch out to build your own independent ecommerce platforms for greater profitability and customer loyalty, so be sure to hear their story on this episode.

Amazon sales has built a business that is very respectable. But these guys want more.

Amazon private label products have been revolutionary by enabling everyday people realize the dream of owning their own profitable business that reaches people all over the world.

But Ryan and the entire Freedom Fast Lane team believe that one of the most powerful forces for changing the world is the force of capitalism.  Entrepreneurs are the only real wealth creators in the world. Their efforts provide work, jobs, cash flow, and revenue that goes beyond their individual businesses to team members, clients, contractors, and others - all around the globe. On today’s episode you can hear the practical steps two guys from inside the Freedom Fast Lane mastermind group are taking to build a business that matters beyond their own gain. It’s a refreshing perspective you won’t want to miss.

Adding new team members to fuel a new return on investment.

One of the bold steps that Kevin and Jeremy have taken to grow their business to the next level is this: they’re pivoting from an entirely digital business into a physical location. They believe it’s time to build a community and culture in a central location that can create the type of corporate brand presence that they believe will fuel their long term appeal to customers. A significant part of that is hiring the team members to inhabit and work from that space. They’ve already added many to their team and are still looking for additional members of their team. It’s a bold move because they’re doing so much at once and because they’re working out the details of each of the positions as they go along - but they are convinced the ROI is going to be tremendous.

The input, ideas, synergy, and encouragement they receive in the community have enabled them to believe in themselves and make the bold decisions that have made their business so successful ($300K per month at this point) and that move them forward each day as they strive to make the business its own major brand in a very crowded marketplace.

When we hear about lifestyle design we tend to think of yachts, fancy cars, and huge houses. Justin Brooke had all of that due to the business success he had built but wasn’t happy. Do you hear that? He wasn’t happy. He realized that he’d started his online marketing and info product business to give himself the ability to live the kind of life he wanted to live - never setting an alarm clock, spending the day with his family, traveling the world - but he was working more hours than ever and instead of having the stuff, the stuff had him. On this episode you’re going to hear Justin’s story and learn how he was able to strip away the things that were making him unhappy so that he could finally life the lifestyle he wanted in the first place.


What happened to the dream that started you on the path to your own business?

Why are you trying to build a business? Is it only about the money or is it about the freedom that the money can produce for you? Never lose sight of that. The journey to that place is filled with lots of hard work but if you’re not enjoying the journey along the way you need to pay attention to that. Your dream can easily get sucked up in the long hours and hard work and you’ll find yourself on a treadmill of performance with no clear end in sight. That’s what happened to Justin Brooke and on this episode he tells the story of how he came to see that the lifestyle he wanted to design got lost in the hurry of business - and how he got out.

The key questions that opened Justin Brooke’s eyes to how he was killing his own dream.

It was a day like any other. Justin was cleaning-up his 6 bedroom house for a bunch of guests who were coming over. He had everything he ever wanted. And he realized he was unhappy. Why was he unhappy? The answer to that question changed everything for him and started him on a journey of self discovery that resulted in finally designing the lifestyle that he wanted in the first place. You can hear Justin’s story on this episode and we promise, it’s one that will leave you thinking about HOW you’re building your business, not just whether or not you are.

What are you doing that needs to go?

On his journey to designing his perfect lifestyle Justin Brooke realized that the life he was living in an attempt to get there was exactly opposite of what he was trying to achieve. Long, long hours working, setting his alarm so he could wake to face the pressures of another day of business - and more than any of that - HE was the business. Things could not continue in a healthy way without him. That’s when he decided to travel the world and see a bit more of life. That’s when he learned to delegate and simplify his processes so that things could go on without him. That’s when he began to see that the trap he was in was one he’d made for himself - and it was time to break free. You can hear Justin’s story on this episode of Freedom Fast Lane.

How much will your success cost you in terms of lifestyle?

Most entrepreneurs start their business to have freedom - take a look - it’s the title of this podcast and blog (Freedom Fast Lane). That’s time freedom, which ultimately means the freedom to do with your time what you want to do with your time. But building a business and the hard work it takes, makes for demands on your time that you don’t realize at first. It creeps up on you, sucking you in deeper and deeper until you wake one day to the fact that your freedom is nowhere to be found. Learn the lesson Justin Brooke has to teach on this episode and you may be able to avoid the same trap he fell into. Your success doesn’t have to cost you the lifestyle you want.

Outline Of This Great Episode

  • [0:03] How we forget the issue of lifestyle design and Justin Brooke’s unique road to it.
  • [3:10] The things Justin has been doing over the past 6 months: moving out of excess, going on the road.
  • [4:21] How Justin realized that he had too much stuff and wanted something different.
  • [7:30] The mindset shift that came once Justin began to simplify his life.
  • [10:50] 10X means get more results, not work 10X more.
  • [12:10] The answer to getting your lifestyle fixed: Loving life and work again.
  • [15:20] What Justin discovered that only he could do each week.
  • [20:00] The things Justin gets to do because he’s simplified his life.
  • [21:27] The big revolution to Justin: He was the business.
  • [24:07] Learning that America is so easy: The change it made to Justin’s life.
  • [30:30] How to move in the direction of simplicity and greater success.

Action Steps From This Episode

FOR GETTING STARTED: Assess your own level of happiness. Ask the hard questions. Are you working too much to enjoy life? Are you having fun? Ask yourself what you actually want in life.

FOR GREATER SUCCESS: Find ways to generate income without HAVING to invest so many hours per day.

FOR PRODUCTIVITY: Do the things that ONLY you can do. Train someone else to do everything else.
