Have you ever paid off a credit card?

Do you remember what it felt like?

What about the joy and relief you'd experience by paying off your home?

Imagine you've helped someone accomplish that goal and the feeling you'd experience as a result of helping them focus their attention on solving their problem. That's what Travis Johnson has done over 400 times with his clients at Warrior's Wallet. No stranger to overcoming adversity, he's also had to personally overcome the instability of moving over 30 times before he graduated high school. 

Travis sums up his mission very simply, as his business helps people cut through the BS and misinformation surrounding personal finance to focus on the education and accountability needed to bring bedroom and peace to you finance.

Travis started the journey to Warrior’s Wallet after a decade of helping others get their day-to-day finances in order. He’s helped hundreds of families pay off more than $6 million in debt. The perspective he provides bridges the gap between knowledge and action.

University of Oklahoma Graduate and Navy Veteran Travis Johnson is the Books by Vets Vice President and Public Relations Director. He also serves on the board of the S.H.I.N.E Foundation and teaches Reboot Combat Recovery.

What is a “Recovering Principal”?

Having spent seven years leading an exemplary elementary school campus in West Texas, Chris Shade refers to himself as a “recovering principal.” Despite spending only four years in the classroom prior, he was always a teacher.

Now speaking with educators, students, and parents on fostering a growth mindset. In this episode, we diving into a largely unsuccessful and costly rollout at his school as a principal, and the nontraditional approach he took to making it right.

For the past 10 years, he has delivered presentations and keynote speeches across the State of Texas and throughout the United States. In 2016 he gave a TEDx Talk, “Education Is None of Your Business” in Flower Mound, TX as a part of a TEDx event on the topic of “disruptive innovation.”

#WomeninBiz Series E2 - Can you HEAR ME now? w/ Phoebe Mroczek

A new prospect asked on Friday afternoon, “Can you have that to me on Monday?”

Phoebe had just been asked to commit to a 48-hour turnaround on a leadership and development workshop. Only problem was, she hadn’t created any of the material. There’s no way she’d be able to pull off training a group of people, let alone teams of folks in that short of a time.

What did she do? What would you have done?

Since killing it at that first training, Phoebe Mroczek has continued to bring value for her clients with digital marketing strategies, podcasts and helping hone their tone of marketing campaigns. She hosts a widely popular podcast, Unbecoming, and has been featured all over the media landscape to include Inc, New Media Summit and more.

E63 - What’s your Why, Best Selling Author, Chris Perez

March 18, 2019

Do you live your core values? Have you experienced the pain of a setback so intensively that you had to change? Do you ever want to make a different decision when your core values are displayed, but your choices tell a different story?

It’s called being confused. The literal first step to clarity is confusion. Most folks don’t take the time to stay in it or analyze that they are responsible for putting themselves there. Alcohol, shying away from responsibilty, mistakes in the military caused Chris Perez to examine why he was in the situation he was in. He decided to pour his life into writing and expression that would help people face the darkness of inauthenticity.

Every one of us have those challenges that cause us to tuck our tail and run. But, when you press in, like Chris talks about in this episode, you can face the darkness and not shy away from the fear. Start today and live your core values - those that follow need to have a leader like you win each day.

1 - Become all you can

2 - Help others do the same

3 - Help the world be a better place
