Capitalism.com with Ryan Daniel Moran (Business)

There are two humongous milestones in the development of your brand.

The first comes when you reach the point of being “all-in” on it. Like, it’s not just a smart idea for a business. It’s not just a clear path to a million dollars. It’s not just something some investor might want to throw money at.

Instead, it’s the hair on fire moment when you really see the massive positive contribution your brand can make in the lives of the people you’ll serve. It’s like the mission behind your brand takes on this feeling of enormity, urgency, and maybe even a sense of, “If I don’t do this, if I don’t serve my people with this, I am missing out on an important part of my whole purpose for being on this planet.”

Ryan had that experience recently with his new brand, and he’ll tell you how he reached this point of going all-in on this episode.

But the second milestone, that’s the one that may make this the most powerful episode you ever listen to. Why? Because for entrepreneurs looking to scale a brand, what Ryan shares with you in this episode will clear a straight path for you and help you to bypass popular pitfalls that could sidetrack you for years (or forever). Getting clarity on this singular question will not only give you a whole new perspective on how to scale… it’ll also help you make crucial strategic decisions easily and wisely.

Most success stories get told backwards, from the great win all the way back to the humble beginnings. Think of all those “they started in their garage” stories. They wouldn’t be nearly as compelling if the story ended in the founder going to work at a ‘regular’ job because of failing.

A lot gets lost in the telling that way. Hindsight dictates which efforts, twists, and turns are worth recalling because they became significant. But what would it be like to look over Bill Gates’ shoulder while he built Microsoft in his garage? Or to stalk Target’s deodorant aisle with Moiz Ali as he built Native Deodorant?

Wouldn’t you gather far richer insights by studying a brand in real time as it climbs to an eight-figure valuation? To see all the experiments, to understand the thought processes, to witness the moment when a brand caught fire?

In this episode, Ryan sketches out his plan to take the Switch Supplements brand, and On Switch (its first product) from $0 to an eight-figure exit. Just as he teaches other entrepreneurs to build a million-dollar brand using his book 12 Months to $1 Million as a playbook, he’s following that same plan for this brand.

As you listen in on his plan, you’ll pick up strategies and thought processes that can help you build your own million-dollar brand. Will the brand become a huge success? Nobody knows for sure, even though it sure looks like that. Either way, because you listened to this episode, you’ll have an insider’s perspective when it all shakes out in the end.

Know how some discussions are important to have? You know you need to start wrapping your head around them, but it just seems more confusing the deeper you go. So you get with an expert because you know you’ll get thoughtful, knowledgeable answers to your questions. But sometimes, the expert is so familiar with the topic that you find yourself feeling even more confused the longer you talk.

That’s how it is a lot of the time for those of us who haven’t mastered the world of cryptocurrency. The vocabulary is unfamiliar. The concepts are complex. You could easily get lost in the weeds and decide it’s just too complicated to understand. No wonder so many entrepreneurs, despite knowing crypto is important to get to know, have thrown up their hands and said, “Nevermind.”

In today’s episode, you’re going to hear a conversation with Ryan and his friend Matthew Tremolada. Frankly, Matthew is so well-versed and deeply immersed in the world of crypto that it would be easy to get a little lost.

However, Ryan serves as your translator. You’ll take deep dives into some pretty heady concepts, but he won’t leave you there, flailing. Instead, you’ll come away with a greater understanding of this blockchain world, how it impacts your future as a business owner, and what you need to know as an investor.


“Hey Ryan, what do you think about Bitcoin?”

Most of the people who follow his work know how he’d answer that question. He’d say something like, “C’mon, be serious. It’s a fad. It’s not backed by anything. You’re WAY better off just building a business, which you can control. Then invest the profits in some nice dividend-paying stocks.”

Oh, but we’d be wrong. Now, anyway.

Ryan’s thoughts on Bitcoin have changed pretty dramatically. In this episode, you’ll hear his reasons for taking a serious look at cryptocurrencies. Plus, now that he’s digging in to learn more, he brings up some good questions any crypto investor should ask regarding how crypto might shape the future of the financial world and how we do business.

More than anything, you’ll hear what Ryan plans to DO about what he’s learned so far. This marks the start of a whole new discussion, and we’d love to hear your thoughts and questions about crypto as well.

Ryan Daniel Moran was recently at an investor meet up when he met a man with the most fascinating life story he had ever heard.

Having done 100s of interviews over the years this became an immediate top 5.

This man, Adel Sayegh, had everything you could ever want in life. He had everything entrepreneurs chase after and he lost it all.

In this interview he shares everything he learned through that painful process and what he now believes about life on the other side.

This is one you won't want to miss.

A nudge to make some long-overdue changes - like ending the self-inflicted pressure that says we have to do it all ourselves or watch our businesses crumble.

Rather than gunning the engine non-stop, maybe it would actually be more effective to just stop for a moment.

And maybe… just maybe, time spent resting might turn out to be the most profitable, productive time of all. One upside of getting knocked on your ass is that you finally gain supreme clarity about what really matters.

In this episode, Ryan shares how his experience with Covid brought him back to some wisdom he lived by and preached way back when he first started this podcast… and now he’s finally getting his own lesson. 

What braingasms will you take away from this podcast? We’d love to hear from you.

You want to build wealth? 

“Save your pennies.” 

“Work hard.”
“Live way below your means.”

“No matter what, protect your money.”

That’s the advice so many of us have heard about how to become wealthy. It might work… but it’ll take a long, long time that way because it means playing not to lose rather than playing to win.

What if we turned that around and played to win, instead?

This question prompted a thought experiment for Ryan that came back with surprising results. What if you took $1 million and invested it well enough to get a 20% annual return for 30 years? You’d cross the quarter-billion mark.

But what if you don’t have a million dollars to invest yet? And how could you get a 20% return per year? This episode answers those questions. But it’ll do something even more valuable for you. As you listen, you’ll find your brain moving beyond the shock of large numbers to reach a point of logical certainty that this is doable. What’s more, instead of advice that sends you into a frantic, hustling mode, you’ll discover how to reach this financial goal - or any you set - in a peaceful, freedom-filled frame of mind… and you’d be shocked by how quickly it can all happen.

I don't care who you are. $75,000 dollars is a lot of money. But that’s what Ryan just spent on Gary Vaynerchuk’s NFTs. As an investor who’s spent most of his life studying the stock market and a capitalist who’s raised and deployed millions of dollars through the Capitalism Fund, for Ryan to drop this kind of cash on something so… weird? Well, there’s got to be a good reason.

The good news is, you don’t even have to understand what a Non-Fungible Token is to see what Ryan REALLY bought.

After listening to this episode, you probably won’t be one bit clearer about NFTs. But you’ll leave with something far more valuable - a model you can follow to build social capital and to strategically position yourself to get in front of leaders, thinkers, and mentors you want to engage.

Networking groups? Masterminds? They have their place. But this “strategy” can work even better, once you know how to use it. Why? Because when you come from a place of giving, service, and humility, wonderful things happen.

If you want to make more money, you’ve got to work more.

Well, that’s what most entrepreneurs hear. But the truth is, if you want to make more money, you’ve got to think bigger… and that means you need time to be able to think big thoughts.

Yeah, but if you’re like most entrepreneurs, you’re already burning it at both ends. You can’t remember the last time you had “spare” time - and to be honest, even if you’re squeezing all your priorities in somehow, there’s always this fear that something’s slipping through the cracks.

Will this podcast episode magically help you reclaim an hour a day? Well, if that happens, it won’t be from magic. But that’s not even the big idea. Instead, here are five tips that, well, frankly, even if you followed just one, there’s no telling what would happen next in your life and business.

This is one talk that’s always a hit in our community because it’s so impactful. That’s why we’re sharing it with you today. When that braingasm hits you, let us know.

“You should become an influencer!” No. Don’t do that. The world has enough content creators hoping they’ll become the next famous celebrity putting their face on products from makeup to wine.

But here’s a secret: there’s an enormous amount of opportunity for entrepreneurs who’ll partner with content creators who’ve built audiences. In fact, relative to the number of influencers out there, there are very few entrepreneurs capable of building a meaningful business selling physical products to these audiences. The opportunity lies in the wings, outside the spotlight.

In this episode, you’ll see how you can partner with influencers who’ve already built one of the three crucial elements of a successful million dollar business. The best part is, up-and-coming influencers are waiting and wishing for someone like you to help them find another alternative to lame sponsorships. This is an opportunity to build a business that excites everyone involved.

Here’s where the puck is headed.

Question for you…

Would you be okay with owning only 10% of the business you founded? Not so much?

What if that business grew to be worth a billion dollars? Would you be okay with that percentage then? 

Ryan’s conversation with Brian Lee (founder of Legal Zoom, ShoeDazzle, Art of Sport, and the Honest Company) took a surprising turn when Brian revealed he “only” owns a small percentage of each of his businesses. But, as he said, "Look, I'm out to build billion dollar companies. I'm okay if I only own 10% of it."

While most entrepreneurs wear all the hats in their businesses, clinging to their ownership stake rather than bringing others on board, the Owner’s Model Ryan teaches blows that model to smithereens. As Ryan asks, “Do you want to eat a grape or do you want to eat a slice of a watermelon?” When an owner is willing to build a bigger pie, everyone benefits.

In this episode, you’ll discover exactly what you need to build a 7-, 8-, or even 9-figure business. And if you’re expecting to hear that you’ll need to work your face off for the next decade, you’re in for a very happy surprise.

Hey brand builders, if you’ve ever wondered whether your business has what it takes to attract investors so you can take it to the next level, this episode is for you.

Inspired by the Capitalism Incubator’s recent Pitch Week, Ryan pinpointed four key questions every brand owner should ask. These are some of the questions investors are asking when they look at your brand to decide whether to take the next step with you.

If you can answer YES to each of these questions, chances are good that you’re building something investors would want to be part of. But if the answer to any of them is NO, don’t worry! You’ll also discover where to put your focus to get back on track. And remember - even if you don’t want investors, building a business they want to partner with results in a business you’ll love growing.

“For the love of money is the root of all evil.” What’s an entrepreneur to do? We want to build something great, something that serves people. But we definitely want the money, too. Does that make us evil?

So many entrepreneurs carry at least a little guilt when they hear this verse - or its more commonly misquoted version: Money is the root of all evil.

That ends today.

In this episode, Ryan puts his pastor hat on to do a little exegetical work on the Greek in this passage from 2 Timothy. As you listen, you’ll discover what the Apostle Paul was really saying. 

And as its true meaning sinks in, not only will you find yourself operating from a far more resourceful, abundant, and free state, but you’ll also find a whole new level of freedom and inspiration on your entrepreneurial journey.

I wanted to share a conversation one of my students, Debbie, and I had recently. Debbie’s making great progress in her journey of building a million-dollar brand. But like many entrepreneurs, this is not her first go at building something big. This time, she’s going at it using the blueprint I share in 12 Months to $1 Million. 

Debbie’s nailed down her audience and her product now, but asked me for advice on how to attract investors. As you’ll discover in this episode, there are three big things an investor wants to see in place before they’ll get excited about throwing their money behind a brand. Plus, and this may be the most important piece of all, they’re looking for a certain mindset… and they can tell within seconds whether a brand owner has it.

Take good notes so you’ll be ready when it comes time to pitch investors for your brand. And do let me know if you experience any significant shifts after you listen.

Are you facing a life situation you don’t want? Unhappy with your business, your money, or your relationships? We’ve all been there, wanting something to change. How long we stay stuck in that situation, though, largely depends on the questions we ask. 

In this episode, Ryan shares a line of thought experiments that will leave you in a more resourceful state of mind any time you use them. You can use what you’re about to hear to help yourself - or others - to leave excuses and paralyzing doubt behind. But even more, you can practice what you learn to create the life you crave, starting right now.

This is how you can change your financial situation, your relationships, your business… you life today.

“That guy. We want to invest in that guy.”

In this episode, Ryan Daniel Moran and Sam Prentice give an update on the Capitalism Fund for the second quarter of 2021. You’ll hear the surprising advice they’ve given Scott, Jesse, and Nick, the three brand owners the Fund invested in already. But you’ll also get a sneak peek into  the brands the Fund is in discussions with, before any ink hits the paper. Also, you’ll learn what Sam and Ryan look for in the entrepreneurs and brands the Fund invests in - and what an infusion of capital can do to grow a brand to 8, 9, or even 10 figures.

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to bring on investors in your brand, and what would happen if you traded a bit of equity for what those investors could bring to the table, you won’t want to miss this frank conversation.

“The top one percent richest people in the country” - in some people’s mouths, this is a slur. Others strive to reach this financial milestone. Still others passed it long ago and now live a life of financial independence. Helping people join the ranks of the one percent is what we do at Capitalism.com.

But what does the math look like? How much wealth would put you into the one percent in the United States? Which assets count? And what would it take to push you across the line? How long would it take to get there, and is there a way to speed up the process?

In this episode, Ryan and Justus talk cold, hard numbers. But after listening, you’ll walk away with your brain buzzing and inspired. Could it be that you’re closer than you think? We’d love to hear your thoughts.

“First, I’ll make the money. Then, I’ll live a better and happier life.” That’s the lie so many entrepreneurs buy and live. Not because they want it that way, but because that’s the message so many of us hear. 

Granted, there’s a certain amount of hustle needed to get through the grind phase of any business. But that doesn’t mean you need to put off happiness while you “work your face off” to grow your business.

It might even be fair to say that all the tactical advice you’ve heard about what it takes to make money misses the point entirely. The perfect ad, the right product, the best sales copy… all of that has its place. But those are not the most important puzzles to solve.

Instead, when you learn to ask THIS one question first, all of the others fall in line. Not only will you find it easier to get wildly rich, but you’ll be a whole lot happier along the way.

My coach, Justus Murimi, sat down with me to talk about purpose. There’s a reason he has this conversation with every entrepreneur he coaches. It’s because it’s very easy to forget why we got into our business in the first place, and shocking to see what we unlock when we remember it. 

In getting crystal clear on your purpose, you unleash your power. But that’s not all. You also free yourself to be yourself, to step into your greatness, and to come from a powerful place of service. 

I’m excited for you to listen to this episode, and for it to turn you loose to create the business and life you’ve been craving.

This could be the most important decision a brand owner makes. 

On one side, you might look at your business as your baby. You’ve nurtured it from its birth, pouring your blood, sweat, tears, and money into it. Win or lose, it’s all yours. Even if that means you grow at a snail’s pace instead of taking off like a rocket.

And maybe you’re wondering whether the cash, connections, and advice you’d add with an investor could pour some gasoline on the little fire you’ve started. Are you ready? What if you mess it all up and disappoint your investors? What if they start getting power-hungry and you lose control? 

How should you think about taking on investors? In this frank conversation, you’ll hear from someone who’s been on both sides of this experience. Once you wrap your head around this discussion, you may find your whole strategy changes.

If you’ve ever lost money in business, this episode is especially for you. 

Until today, I’ve talked a lot about my eight-figure exit, how I’ve helped hundreds of people become millionaires, and the simple 12 months to $1 million plan I teach.

I haven’t been quite so public with my losses in business. They’re big, as you can tell from the title of this episode. They may actually be even bigger than $2 million, depending on how you count.

But as much as losing money hurts, there’s something even more destructive that can happen in the mind of a business owner in this situation. That’s why this may be the most important episode you ever listen to. 

Here’s the truth: you will have setbacks. Sometimes they’ll be big setbacks. Maybe really big ones. But if you can learn from my journey of coming to grips with my losses, you can pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and get back in the game a lot faster.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this episode - no matter where you are in your journey or how you’ve done so far.

Why do you do what you do? We all got into this game for one reason - the freedom to do what we are called to do. Often, entrepreneurs find ways to keep themselves busy. We pride ourselves on working to death and make fun of those who work a 9 to 5 for someone else without realizing that we are working double and are often less happy than those people. 

Here’s how to fix that. You can go from twice as busy and half as happy to spending your days doing what lights you up and creates change in the world. And you’ll make a lot more money, too.

Everyone wants to reverse engineer the successes of the most rich and famous people in the world... 

That strategy might look good on the surface, but in reality, it never works. You and I can never be Jeff Bezos or Elon Musk - and we shouldn't want to be! The secret to success is to be yourself. You can only be you. 

In this episode, I’m contrasting two ways I’ve gone about building my business. One leads to misery. The other one might not seem like it should work, but it’s how I’ve enjoyed the most success. If you focus on building your business from a place of creation instead of a place of desperation, everything changes. Your life and business change when you set out to create something meaningful, not just make profits.

Money isn't really real. It’s a tool that we use to formalize agreements with each other. Its purpose is to fund and sustain our service to one another. 

In this episode, Ryan shares some conclusions he’s drawn about how humans think about money. But even more, he digs into the emotional responses most of us have to money. He also suggests a thought experiment that can help you make money show up faster in your life. And you can do it just by tweaking the way you make decisions about money.

Give it a listen, then put these ideas to work for you. See how much more ease, freedom, and enjoyment you’ll create in your life as a result.

“How do I make the next sale?” 

“What fire should I put out next?”

“I’m burned out, overwhelmed, and can’t seem to grow past the $1 million mark.”

We start businesses because we want to create something life-changing and exciting. But so many entrepreneurs end up instead feeling stuck in the worst job they’ve ever had. 

That’s where three business owners were before the Capitalism Fund came in and set them back on track to quadruple or even quintuple their revenues. Not only did we make a financial investment in these businesses - we also helped connect the owners to resources that free them up to stay in product-creation mode.

Listen in to see if any of the fixes we did on these businesses might help your business, too.

Failure. The angst, the anxiety, the shame and fear it carries with it… no entrepreneur escapes the experience of failing. But what comes next after we fail can mean the difference between shrinking into the shadows or emerging victorious with a helluva great story to boot.

In this episode, I share a thought experiment you can use to process even your worst failure and completely reframe it in a way that sets you free. Spoiler alert: it worked wonders on a friend of mine who was willing to play along. She says it completely transformed her from feeling shackled to fear and shame to finally feeling free.

“Ryan, I just wanted you to know you’re my hero.” 

Those were the first words I heard from Andri Sadlak. At the time, I didn’t know much about his story. I didn’t know he’d taken his first sale at one of our events, that he’d lost everything and started from scratch, and certainly not that just a couple of years later, he’d have a nice exit.

But all of this is part of Andri’s story. Andri followed my book, 12 Months to $1 Million, like a blueprint. He built a little audience, focused on delighting them, and built a business he could sell. 

I’m excited to share this conversation with you, especially if you’re at the early stages of your journey. Andri is living proof that you can build a meaningful business with just a couple of products and a small group of followers.

One day, Jared Springer was on the verge of filing bankruptcy. Fast-forward just a little bit, and he sells his business for millions of dollars. Staring at his phone, watching millions of dollars hit his bank account, you’d think Jared would have been the happiest man alive.

But he wasn’t. 

That is, until he discovered the secret anyone, anywhere, in any financial situation can use to finally be happy. As Jared discovered, with money, all of your tendencies just get louder and bigger… because now you have the time and money to amplify them.

On this episode, I’m sharing the conversation Jared and I had on a recent Wine with Wyan. Jared tells a harrowing tale of workaholism, physical paralysis, near financial ruin, massive success, and finally… happiness. 

Jared’s the author of I’ll Be Happy When. Entrepreneur, my hope is that you will take what he says to heart now, while you’re building, so you’re not waiting for someday.

Today, I’m joined by our Product and Community Manager, Justus Murimi. Before joining the team, Justus was a pastor with a heart for coaching entrepreneurs. He noticed a few unique challenges entrepreneurs face, and he’s gotten really good at helping them get unstuck so they can thrive in all areas of life.

Justus has been taking calls with members of our community, The One Percent, bringing his unique ability to hear what’s really going on for them. It’s amazing what getting clarity can do to help entrepreneurs make sometimes tough decisions their business needs them to make. 

In this episode, Justus works some of his magic on me. I asked him where he sees me getting stuck, and he nailed it. As he lays it all out for me, I’m betting you’ll think he’s talking about you, too!

“Who am I?” That might be the simplest and most challenging question to answer, all in three little words. But it’s also one of the most valuable questions an entrepreneur can ask. Its answer forms the foundation for successful business-building, self-confidence, and goal setting. 

In this episode, you’ll get to listen in as Capitalism.com’s Product and Community Manager, Justus Murimi talks with Ryan and The One Percent community. This conversation can help you set yourself up for a strong first 90 days in 2021. 

Justus walks us through some powerful questions about who you are, your purpose, vision, mission, and what goals make sense for you this quarter. Even more, you’ll discover a way to go after your goals that eliminates a lot of the inner conflict so many of us feel while looking at the gap between where we are and where we want to be.

And you’ll get a little assignment to complete in the next 30 days. Let us know what you discover as you do it!

Hey entrepreneur, are you sitting in the owner's chair? Or are you operating every piece of your business? 

If it is the latter, you are probably way overstressed, way undercapitalized, way confused about the direction of your business, and growing really slowly. 

You’ve discovered that the worst businesses in the world are seven figure businesses. Why would the author of 12 Months to $1 Million say a thing like that? Because:

  • You have to hire really good talent, but you don't have the money to hire really good talent. You have to have the cash flow to be able to reinvest into growth, but you don't have enough cash to grow the business. 
  • You're just stuck paying yourself and then getting by on the rest of the revenue. 
  • You're able to pay yourself and for your overhead and maybe some team members, but you’re caught in a trap where you're not really able to grow to that $10,000,000 point, or even higher. 

So, in today’s episode, we’re going to help you make the shift from entrepreneur to owner. After listening, you’ll be crystal-clear on the three things a business leader needs to focus on. With that clarity, you’ll see the path forward for making your current business - or your next - the freedom machine that fuels your life and lets you make an enormous difference for your customers.

Let me know what you think. I think this message has the power to change everything for the entrepreneurs who really get it.

Today, Ryan talks with Cathryn Lavery of the Best Self Co. to find out how this super-scrappy founder launched on Kickstarter. While many entrepreneurs seeking funding give Kickstarter a shot and get mediocre results, Cathryn did it the smart way. The result? Not only did she fund her first inventory round, but her second and third, too!

If you plan to launch your own product on Kickstarter, listen in and take notes because you’ll learn from someone who’s learned to navigate all the pitfalls and make crowdfunding work. And if you hadn’t even thought about using Kickstarter for your launch, stop everything! Give this a listen to see whether crowdfunding makes sense for you.

After you listen, I’d love to hear your thoughts on using this solution for funding your business.

Here’s something weird… and it 100% determines whether you will succeed as an entrepreneur.

It’s the one difference between two people who…

Both say they want to start a business.

Both have ambition running through their veins.

Both say they WANT it.

Both go through the same exact training, read the same books, and have the same blueprint.

But one seemingly small difference between these two people determines whether they’ll become wildly successful... or become stuck and bitter.

The only difference? It’s not what you might think.

As you listen to this podcast episode you may find yourself feeling terrified (in a good way!)... and oddly, even MORE eager to get started building your own business.

I’d love to hear what shift you experience as a result of listening today.

Did 2020 suck for you? Or was it the best year yet? 

Your assessment of 2020 and your experience of 2021 all depend on which “menu” of options you choose. You could choose from the menu where everything sucks and nothing’s working for you… Or, you can choose from an entirely different menu, one full of new possibilities that all come together to make 2021 the best year yet.

In this episode, Ryan shares four “extended menu options” anyone can choose from to make 2021 a fantastic year. It all boils down to a series of decisions - and they impact your business, your relationships, and your own wellbeing.

Best of all, you don’t even have to wait for the new year to start. You can make these decisions starting right now. If you do, and you look back at 2020, we’d love to hear how your take on the year shifts. Here’s to setting ourselves up for a great 2021!

Today, you’re in for a treat. Inside the Capitalism Incubator, a couple dozen brand owners have been busy preparing to launch their million-dollar brands. Each one of these entrepreneurs has taken ownership of a problem that’s plaguing a specific group of people who are hoping and praying someone, somewhere will come up with a solution. These brand owners are about to answer their audiences’ prayers.

Now, as I’ve taught over and over, you don’t have to have a big bankroll to launch a million-dollar brand. I recently published a video on YouTube detailing how I launched a brand with just $600, and later sold it for $16 million.

But having investors backing your brand can sure help speed up the process. That’s why we put our Cap Inc students through a powerful exercise we call Pitch Week. It’s grueling at times. It’s emotional. It’s a huge stretch for some. But they did it! (And they’ll be the first to tell you that this assignment was incredibly valuable for them.)

Give a listen, and you’ll hear a handful of our Cap Inc students pitch their brands to a panel of investors. If you’re a budding entrepreneur, you’ll pick up some gems of insight that can give you clarity as you think about the brand you want to build. If you’re an investor, you’ll get a sneak peek at the kinds of brands the Capitalism Incubator is helping to launch. 

Enjoy!

Today, I’m joined by Jason Franciosa. Jason’s the co-owner of a brand that serves the CrossFit community - and he’s the head coach inside the Capitalism Incubator. 

About a year ago, we had a conversation about how his company was just on the cusp of reaching a million dollars in sales for the year. Fast-forward to 2020, the year of the pandemic. Sure enough, the business faced some of its biggest butt-puckering challenges ever.

But… Jason’s still grown it 300% this year, and monthly revenue now tops $250K.

I wanted to share this conversation with you because right before Jason started this venture, he was about to give up his entrepreneurial dreams and go get a job. Instead, he went all in, one last time… and he says it was the best decision he’s ever made.

No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, there are priceless bits of wisdom for you in this conversation. 

Give it a listen, and let me know what you think.

Just a few months into the Capitalism Incubator experience, we asked each member to present the vision of their company. 

Why? Because if you create a crystal clear vision for where you're going, you can build the road knowing you’ll get there. Even more, you can get there faster with the help of a few key relationships who can bring resources to the table. 

Each member you’re about to meet is on their way to building a 7-8- figure business. Each one has chosen an audience to serve, taken ownership of a problem their audience faces, and created solutions to serve them.

You’ll meet Damien, Kristy, Keerthan, and Yasmine and hear about their experience inside the Incubator and where they’re headed with the brands they’re creating.

Prepare to be inspired and impressed by what these four entrepreneurs are up to. Comment to cheer them on with us!

A few years ago, two Australian entrepreneurs joined me at the lake house for a Backroom event. They’d built a wellness brand selling yoga products, and were right around seven-figures in annual revenue. Fantastic, right?

Well, they were walking into a room of people doing $300K to $400K a month. It would have been easy for them to feel intimidated and even to wonder what they were doing wrong. But they set their sights on much bigger milestones, and kept doing the right things for the right reasons.

I’m really proud of Gemma and Georgie and what they’ve created through Ajna Wellbeing, and know you’ll love getting to listen in on this conversation. We recorded it for our Capitalism Incubator. But this discussion is so inspiring that we wanted to share it with everyone.

One of the best things about having the Capitalism.com podcast is that I get to introduce my audience to people and resources they may never have encountered otherwise. 

This is one of those episodes. 

You’ll meet my doctor, Dr. Dan Stickler. Doctor Dan has become my trusted guide as I optimize my health and wellbeing. But I’m not alone in that. He’s also the go-to doctor among Austin entrepreneurs because he’s at the forefront of cutting edge medicine, including nutrition and psychedelics. You’ll see why after you listen to our conversation.

We’re going to go deep here, talking about consciousness and other topics that may not be everyone’s cup of tea. But the risk of being a little “woo-woo” here is worth it to me because I believe the ROI on an entrepreneur’s health and wellbeing is impossible to overstate.

You’ll also learn how you can work with Doctor Dan if you’d like - and you’ll be able to do so at a relatively affordable price through his special offer.

After you listen, I would love to hear your thoughts on this discussion.

My friend Ryan Coisson and I have the same side hustle. We’ve both built successful e-comm businesses and both have a fascination with the stock market. 

But we’re not day traders! To us, that seems like no way to live… eyeballs glued to ten different screens, blood pressure through the roof, making hundreds of trades every day.

No way. Instead, we’re hooked on trading stock options - and we only spend a few hours a month, tops, doing it.

Ryan Coisson’s my mentor in this arena, and I brought him into The One Percent to talk about it. Of course, neither of us is an investment advisor… this is purely for entertainment purposes. 

Tune in, and you may just discover that this stock investment strategy gets you jizzer-jazzered up, too!

After chatting with Bill Glaser of Outstanding Foods (one of the companies I invest in), our conversation shifted to a coffee creamer company called Laird Superfood. 

With revenues of only $19 million, investors just valued this company at $400 million. Their 

products aren't even all that different from their competitors’ and yet they went public with a nine-figure valuation because they're a good brand. You have the same type of opportunity. You're just as qualified as any of them. It might take a few years for that vision to come to life, so now is a really good time to set that vision. 

This discussion gave me a major braingasm about Capitalism.com, too. Now, I’m thinking bigger than ever before.

Hey Entrepreneurs,
Ever feel so stuck and stymied by a burning question that it’s hard to move forward building your business? Happens all the time.

One of my favorite things about the time I spend with The One Percent community is when we open the floor to take questions just like that. The best moment is when I see the lightbulb come on - or as we call it, a #braingasm. After these mental roadblocks are cleared, it’s so much fun to watch these folks run full speed ahead.

I wanted to share this Q&A session with you because I suspect a *few* of you may have similar questions holding your brain captive and keeping you from building the business you’re dreaming about, too.

I didn't really learn much about entrepreneurship in business school.

But my economy professor Dr. Tom Lehman completely changed how I saw the world.

I began to really understand how supply & demand worked. How incentives can drive our world, for the good or the bad.

As we are living through an unprecedented pandemic and The Fed continues to print money to keep the country from falling apart, I thought I should give my old college professor a ring.

We discuss the economic impact of COVID and what could happen as a result of all this after the dust settles.


Entrepreneurship isn't just about becoming financially free.

It isn't about running away from money problems, or putting in years of hard work so that you can actually be happy at some future date.

It is about doing work you enjoy every day.

I've learned a lot of lessons like this over my years building and selling companies.
