On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Primoz Bozic joins me to discuss Ultimate Guides. Primoz Bozic is an online business coach for top performers. He started his journey earning just $7/h as a programmer in Slovenia, and now runs a 6-figure online business while traveling the world. He works with world-class experts like celebrity makeup artists, songwriters and high performance coaches to help them turn their expertise into an online business that changes the lives of millions of people. His superpower is helping you create super detailed and comprehensive blog posts and Ultimate Guides that become the #1 resource in the industry and attract thousands of high quality visitors to your online business.

In this episode, we discuss:

-What is an Ultimate Guide?

-How to attract high quality customers by offering free online content

-Primoz’s step-by-step guide to create the best content in your industry

-How to produce simple and digestible content for your ideal customer

-And so much more!

 

In order to create the best content, you will need to spend a lot of time on it but Primoz believes it will be well worth the effort because, “You can create this asset once and then use it everywhere to attract new, high quality customers.”

 

An Ultimate Guide can be proliferated across different media channels such as audio and text. These different formats increase your chances of reaching the most diverse audience and Primoz believes that, “Now you have this ability to really stand out from all the other people.”

 

One of the most important aspects of your Ultimate Guide is that it is relevant and understandable by your audience. To accomplish this, Primoz advises, “Talk to your customers.”

 

For more information on Primoz:

Primoz went from being a 20-year old socially awkward computer science student earning $7/hour with no connections, no experience and no business knowledge to earning multiple 6 figures with his online business, all while living in Slovenia. He now coaches world-class experts, CEOs and rising stars on growing their online businesses by creating world-class content, Ultimate Guides and premium online courses.

He has served as the lead coach and product manager for Ramit Sethi’s “Zero to Launch Accelerator”, a 7-figure online business coaching program. He has created multiple successful online courses that range from $50 – $1,500, had multiple 5-figure product launches and coached private clients for $400/hour. His clients include celebrity makeup artists, world-class songwriters and world’s best high performance coaches.

Primoz has been featured in Yahoo Finance, Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Growthlab, Ramit Sethi’s Zero to Launch, Derek Halpern’s Yes Engines, Selena Soo’s INFLUENCE, as well as all major Slovenian newspapers. He has spoken to audiences of several hundred people, at events such as Ramit Sethi’s Forefront and Selena Soo’s Get Known, Get Clients LIVE.

On this episode of the podcast, I welcome Dr. Sharad P. Paul to discuss medicine and health. Dr. Sharad P. Paul, MD is a skin cancer surgeon, family physician, academic, skincare expert, evolutionary biologist, storyteller, and social entrepreneur, as well as an adjunct professor at Auckland University of Technology. Born in England, with a childhood in India, he is a global citizen who lives Down Under. In 2008, was featured in international editions of Time and in 2015 was awarded the prestigious Ko Awatea International Excellence Award for Leading (Health) Improvement on a Global Scale.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The most important questions to ask your physician at a yearly check-up

-The Genetics of Health: making medicine personal

-How historical human migration and diet patterns influence your Vitamin D levels and Omega 6:3 ratio

-Should the medical system be proactive or reactive with illness?

-And so much more!

 

The healthcare system today is primarily focused on reactively treating illness with very little resources going towards proactive treatment and advice. Dr. Paul stresses, “Medicine isn’t health. Medicine is an industry... It doesn’t automatically mean good health.”

 

Dr. Paul believes that achieving good health is done by both recognizing genetic risk factors and adjusting your environment appropriately. For those seeking to provide more personal healthcare, Dr. Paul advises, “It’s important to get to know the person and not just the illness.”

 

Dr. Paul advocates people become knowledgeable about what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle and take action to achieve their health goals. Dr. Paul recommends to, “Increase your sense of personal responsibility.”

On this episode of the podcast, I welcome Daniel Thomas Hind onto the show to discuss Evolution Eat and the components of a healthy lifestyle. Daniel Thomas Hind is the founder of EvolutionEat, a transformational weight loss and lifestyle company designed to help overwhelmed folks solve their eating, food and weight problems. Over the past few years Daniel has specialized in helping busy executives and high performers who tend to have a tough time prioritizing their health over their jobs, businesses, careers, and families. And here’s the kicker…he’s figured out how to make the process fun so that it lasts forever. Every week, tens of thousands of people read Daniel’s material to learn how to use psychology, mindset and healthy habits to live a more meaningful life. Welcome Daniel to the show!

In this episode, we discuss:

-Evolution Eat: how to proactively take control over your lifestyle

-Daniel’s food and exercise journey

-Developing the right mindset for change

-How to set-up a morning routine that powers the rest of your day

-And so much more!

 

Daniel encourages you to jump at new opportunities and overcome natural feelings of hesitation and fear. From Daniel’s experience, he stresses, “It’s often when you lean into that edge that the most extraordinary things occur simply because you don’t know how to predict for them.”

 

To reach your full potential you cannot neglect your basic needs as Daniel believes, “Your health is baseline.”

 

A sustainable healthy lifestyle over the long-term is achieved with healthy habits. Daniel has found that, “It’s a skill you develop and practice over time versus a goal that you accomplish.” Ultimately, it is not the end goal that counts but the process you develop to get there as, “Goals are a place to come from not a place to get to.”

Daniel Thomas Hind is the founder of EvolutionEat, a transformational weight loss and lifestyle company designed to help overwhelmed folks solve their eating, food and weight problems.

 

Over the past few years Daniel has specialized in helping busy executives and high performers who tend to have a tough time prioritizing their health over their jobs, businesses, careers, and families. (Sound familiar?) And here’s the kicker…he’s figured out how to make the process fun so that it lasts forever.

“Most people know what’s healthy for them, you don’t need another diet guy on the internet to tell you what to eat,” Daniel says. “When it comes to emotional eating, stress eating and all kinds of habitual overeating, you can’t just give someone a diet and say, ‘Here, good luck!’ There’s a lot more going on under the hood that influences our decision-making, and there’s a key distinction between someone trying a new diet for a few months and fully adopting a lifestyle as a way of being. That’s what I’m here to uncover and teach. Because your health is baseline.”

Every week, tens of thousands of people read Daniel’s material to learn how to use psychology, mindset and healthy habits to live a more meaningful life.

Happy December to the Healthy Wealthy and Smart family! On this episode, I welcome Tricia Brouk on the show to discuss the elements of a memorable talk. In addition to working in the entertainment industry, Tricia Brouk applies her expertise as a director and writer for film, television and theater to the art of public speaking. She’s the executive producer of TEDxLincolnSquare and has choreographed Black Box on ABC, The Affair on Showtime, Rescue Me on Fox, and John Turturro’s Romance and Cigarettes. The series she directed, Sublets, won Best Comedy at the Vancouver Web-Festival. She’s written two musicals, a play, a sitcom pilot, and a feature film. She’s been featured in Inc. Magazine, Huffington Post, Broadway World and has been a featured guest on Leaders In The Trenches, Ultimate Leadership, EO Fire, and Weekly Alignment. She also hosts the podcast, The Big Talk on iTunes, where she interviews people who talk for a living.

In this episode, we discuss:

-Tricia’s simple formula to make a powerful talk

-How to craft a raw and meaningful story

-Introversion and ways to overcome stage fright

-The importance of communicating expectations for success

-And so much more!

 

Over her career, Tricia has been able to work on a variety of projects by maintaining confidence in her talents. Tricia recommends jumping at any new opportunities that present themselves and that, “It was all about saying yes, being challenged and not being afraid of failing.”

 

To create a powerful and meaningful talk, Tricia advises, “Inspire what you have to offer without selling what you have to offer.”

 

The most powerful talks use stories and a point of view that are unique and authentic to the speaker. As a result, “You disarmed the audience by sharing something about yourself, by showing up and being vulnerable.”

 

For those wanting to improve their public speaking, Tricia suggests that, “You have to flex the speaking muscle just like you flex the bicep.” To gain more comfort on stage, there is no substitute to practice. Tricia recommends gradually pushing boundaries, starting with family and moving on to co-workers, as she has found that, “Repetition is everything.”

 

For more information on Tricia:

Tricia Brouk draws on experience as a TEDx organizer, a writer, director and choreographer in film, television, and theater to help you bring your life-changing talk into focus. Her unique point of view will get you onto the big stage and guarantee you an unforgettable big talk every time.

 

I view public speakers through the same lens I do an actor. You have something important to say and it’s my job to help you find the way to say it with truth, confidence, vulnerability, awe, compassion and courage. With the help of my direction and guidance, I’ll bring your life-changing speech into focus, while giving you the unique insight into what makes an unforgettable big talk. I’ll break down your script just like I do with a film or play. I’ll identify the arcs the beats, and if what you are saying is actually what you mean to say. I’ll identify what you need to do for your big talk or your Keynote, as they are very different. Once I do that, we’ll work together on clarifying, specifying and performing your big talk through blocking, repetition, and simple techniques I use with actors.

 

My goal in the room is to create a safe space so you can drop in. When you are working on the material, I’ll help you find new and interesting ways to communicate your very important talk. Once we find those, together, I will help you maintain the integrity and consistency of the performance so you can be free to talk to the audience, like you’re talking to a friend. I will help illuminate the importance of what you, as a speaker, want to say and how you communicate that information so that your audience leans in.
