YAPClassic: Billionaire Jim McKelvey on Building an Unbeatable Business | E69
3302
There are two types of entrepreneurs: those who copy other people’s businesses and those who create an entirely new market. When you disrupt an existing market, you run the risk of being lumped in with your competitors. For example, you can probably name five of your local coffee shops off the top of your head.  While some entrepreneurs thrive off of copying other business ideas, the most successful businesses are the ones who solve a problem that nobody else has solved. If your business idea is completely original, then whoever needs your product will come to you because nobody else is filling that hole in the market.  Over the years, Jim McKelvey has become an expert at building businesses that solve problems no one else is addressing. He has founded several groundbreaking businesses like Square and LaunchCode, both of which fill a hole in their respective markets.  In this episode of YAP Classic, Hala and Jim break down the two different types of entrepreneurs. Jim tells Hala about how he met Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Square and Twitter. They also talked about why money is a weak motivator in entrepreneurship and how Jim and Jack survived an attack from Amazon.  Topics Include: - The impact of his mother’s suicide  - Jim’s relationship with social media - ‘Don’t do’ list  - How does Jim define entrepreneurship?  - Pros of copying someone  - Our copy-centric world - Becoming aware of solvable problems - Why money is a weak motivator - How Jim met Jack Dorsey - Age bias - Starting Square  - The Innovation Stack  - Competing successfully against Amazon  - Writing The Innovation Stack  - And other topics… Jim McKelvey is a serial entrepreneur who co-founded Square. He also founded Invisbily, LaunchCode, and Third Degree Glass Factory. He still serves as the owner of all seven companies he started, but does not hold a leadership position at any of them. In 2017, he was appointed as an independent director of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.  He’s the author of three books, the most popular being The Innovation Stack, an inside look into the world of entrepreneurship that details Square’s battle with Amazon. He also wrote The Birth of Baking, a graphic novel about The Bank of America’s conception, and The Art of Fire, a beginner’s guide to glassblowing.  Sponsored By: The Jordan Harbinger Show - Check out jordanharbinger.com/start for some episode recommendations Indeed - Visit Indeed.com/YAP to start hiring now.

YAPSnacks: Best of Chris Voss, World's Top Negotiation Expert | Part 1
2295
Negotiations don’t always take place in a conference room. A negotiation is simply a discussion where both parties come to an agreement, so we are negotiating all the time. Something as small as talking to family about who’s bringing what to Christmas dinner is a negotiation!  And negotiations are not entirely verbal. Whether we realize it or not, we are influencing every negotiation with how we present ourselves.  Through paying more attention to our body language, our word choice, and the way we frame information, we can intentionally evoke more information from others, which can help us establish trust and build stronger relationships!  This episode of YAP Snacks will feature several pieces of negotiating advice from Chris Voss, a former FBI hostage negotiator and CEO of The Black Swan Group, where he’s using his extensive career in international crisis mitigation and high-stakes negotiation situations to teach people how to better negotiate and refine their communication style.  Stay tuned to find out more about refining your communication style to get what you want in everyday negotiations!  Topics include: - Tone of voice - Mirroring - Emotional labeling - How to use the words ‘I’m sorry’ - What does the word ‘fair’ really mean? - Why you shouldn’t match people’s energy - Lying to gain influence - And other topics… Sponsored by -  Delta Air Lines - Visit delta.com/travelwell to learn more.

Jason Feifer: Future-Proof Your Career and Unlock Opportunities with the Entrepreneur's Mindset | E188
4193
Too many people are stuck in the past: old ideas, old technologies, and old ways of living. When we don’t embrace change, we don’t grow or evolve. Accepting change and using it to fuel our growth is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves in every area of our lives.  But how can we resist our natural inkling toward predictability and become comfortable with change?  To answer that question, Hala invited Jason Feifer, a champion of change, onto Young and Profiting podcast. Jason is the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur magazine. He hosts two podcasts that focus on how to take hold of change and use it to your advantage. He’s also the author of the newly released book, Build For Tomorrow, which outlines how to use the power of change to your advantage using wisdom from some of the brightest minds in the world.  In this episode of YAP, Hala and Jason talk about how entrepreneurial thinking differs from the rest of the population, and how embracing entrepreneurial thinking can help you find more opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise have seen, even if you’re not an entrepreneur. They explain how to stack your skills in order to open new doors for yourself, why we resist change, and how humanity has resisted change throughout history. He also explains how we can use failure as data and view new situations as temporary experiments rather than permanent commitments.  Topics Include: - How well do you really know your audience?  - Why Jason renamed one of his podcasts  - Opportunity Set B - Parkinson’s Law  - Seeing loss as opportunity - Viewing opportunities as temporary experiments  - Defining traits of an entrepreneur  - Using failure as data  - The truth about time management  - The 1907 Teddy bear crisis - Jason’s actionable advice for becoming more profitable  - And other topics… Jason Feifer is the Editor in chief of Entrepreneur Magazine and champion of change. He has led an extensive career as a journalist, working at publications such as Fast Company, Men’s Health, and Maxim Magazine. He hosts two podcasts: Build For Tomorrow and Problem Solver.  Earlier this year, he released a book called Build For Tomorrow that outlines how humanity has rejected and embraced change over time. His goal is to help you become more resilient and adaptable in a world of constant change — so you can seize new opportunities before anyone else does!

YAPSnacks: Building a Purpose-Driven Business
3226
Since the 1970s, we have viewed business as a way to make money, not make a difference. However, the way we view the role of business is changing. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs believe that purpose is the primary function of business, not profits. If your career and your organization exist solely to make money, you will likely lose motivation to keep going after you’ve met all your major milestones.  When we infuse purpose into every level of our businesses (and lives), we are building more fulfilling careers and inadvertently becoming more profitable. By aligning your organization with a mission, you attract customers who want to uplift that mission.  Plus, the profits generated by those customers will satisfy your stakeholders, so it’s a win-win!  On today’s YAP Snack, I want to explore how to build a purpose-driven business by sharing wisdom from entrepreneurs who have successfully aligned their companies with a powerful mission. Tune in to hear what John Mackey, Derrick Kinney, and Darius Mirshahzadeh have to say about purpose, conscious capitalism, core values, and using your money to fuel your purpose.  Topics include: -What is conscious capitalism?  -The Good Money Revolution  -The importance of purpose in business  -Using core values to create accountability  -Love in entrepreneurship -And other topics… Sponsored by -  Indeed - Visit Indeed.com/YAP to start hiring now.

YAPSnacks: Rewire Your Brain for Success
2417
The RAS is a bundle of nerves at our brainstem that filters out unnecessary information from our subconscious so that only the important stuff gets through to our conscious minds. It keeps our conscious minds from being overwhelmed with too much information by acting as a doorway between our conscious mind and our subconscious mind.  Our RAS determines what’s important to us by examining our past experiences. If your past is filled with pain, trauma, and limiting beliefs, then that’s what your RAS will seek out. This is why people get stuck in patterns of self-destruction; their brains are operating on autopilot, and their past programming holds them back from success.  On today’s YAP Snack, we talk about how to reprogram your RAS by sharing some of my best tips from the experts. Utilizing these tips will create long-lasting change in the way you perceive yourself and the world.  Topics include: -What is your RAS?  -How our RAS filters out information  -The Law of Attraction  -Controlling our subconscious mind  -Building a powerful morning routine  -Challenging your internal dialogue  -And other topics… Sponsored By: Black Pearl Mail - Turn your sign offs into sign ups with blackpearlmail.com  Podbean - Sabio - Go to sabio.la/yap and save $125 on your total bootcamp cost!

At age 7, he tested at genius IQ levels, AND he got near-perfect SAT scores in high school. His mathematical, detail-oriented mind makes him exceptionally aware of patterns in human behavior.  Jonah is author of three books on psychology and consumer behavior, and two of his books, Contagious and Invisible Influence are New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestsellers.

Bob Burg: Go-Giver Sales Strategy | E150
2564
Sell the go-giver way by shifting your focus from getting to giving! This week on YAP we’re chatting with Bob Burg, best-selling author, motivational speaker, and sales guru.  For over 30 years, Bob has successfully shown entrepreneurs and sales professionals how to communicate their value and accelerate their referral business. For much of his career, Bob was known for his book Endless Referrals, but it’s his newest series The Go-Giver that has grown into a world-wide movement.  The Go-Giver series contains 4 books which have sold more than one million copies, and have been translated into 30 languages. Go-Giver was listed in Inc. Magazine’s top 10 Most Motivational Books Ever Written and was on HubSpot’s 20 Most Highly Rated Sales Books of All Time.   In today’s episode, we’ll learn why Bob believes you’re better off being a ‘go-giver’ instead of being an opportunistic ‘go-taker’ when you’re trying to gain influence. We’ll uncover the difference between influence, persuasion and manipulation, and gain insight as to why the best influencers pull others in as opposed to pushing them. And lastly, Bob will break down his five laws of success, as well as the law of the backdoor and how you can use these key aspects of human nature to your advantage.  If you’ve been wanting to enhance your ability to influence and increase your success in sales, keep on listening!

Chris Voss: Advanced Negotiation | E144
4412
Have you ever wondered what goes through the mind of a hostage negotiation expert? In this episode, we talk with Chris Voss, formally the FBI’s leading international hostage and kidnapping negotiator. Now he spends his time as an author, professor, CEO of the Black Swan Group, and teaching his Masterclass: Teaching the Art of Negotiation which shows others how to apply his learnings from international crises and high-stakes negotiations to the business world. Chris is regarded as one of the most influential negotiators of our time. He wrote the best-selling book, “Never Split the Difference,” which lays out actionable negotiation strategies and is known as the bible of negotiation. Chris joins us on YAP today to teach us how to negotiate as if our lives depended on it and become more persuasive in both our professional and personal lives. In today’s episode, Chris shares his knowledge with the YAP podcast. He tells us about his journey from FBI agent to hostage negotiation and what specific negotiation tactics he uses and why they have been so successful. Chris covers the reason why giving someone a chance to start with saying “no” can be more useful than getting them to start with saying “yes”. We learn about the neuroscience behind why tactical empathy is the best way to diffuse a situation and get someone to say the magic phrase, “that’s right!” Chris teaches his 7, 38, 55 body language method and tells us that people don’t remember what you said, they remember how they felt. If you are looking to learn how to negotiate your way through any situation, you don’t want to miss this episode! Chris is a past guest so check out episode #23!

Marc Champagne: The Power of Being Present | E139
2904
Want to live your life with more intention? In this episode we are talking with Marc Champagne! Marc is a creator, author, podcast host, and mental fitness strategist. In 2016 Marc co-founded the digital journaling app KYŌ once he saw a need for a digital guided journaling tool for people. After fast and immense success with KYŌ, he made the decision to end the business and delete the app permanently after realizing his business model wasn’t sustainable or profitable.  In 2019 he created his podcast Behind the Human, which has since become a top 50 health charting show, where he talks to some of the greatest minds about how to live with more intention and presence. He created his own brand strategy business using his mental fitness theory called THRIVE, and has become an acclaimed mental fitness strategist through his work with THRIVE. His first book, Personal Socrates, “is an exploration of questions that shape the lives of legends and world-class performers—questions that have the power to change your life and work”, and is hitting shelves in October 2021. In today’s episode, we discuss Marc’s journey with creating and ultimately ending the popular journaling app KYŌ and how that led his path to writing Personal Socrates. We also discuss Marc’s full-proof formula to getting unstuck, why journaling actually works, and the questions to ask ourselves to live with more clarity and intention.

Robin Dreeke: FBI Hacks for Building Rapport | E137
3981
Ever wondered how to hack your way to more meaningful relationships? In this episode, we are talking with Robin Dreeke, best-selling author, professional speaker, former Head of the FBI and master spy recruiter. Robin’s life mission has been breaking down the art of leadership, communication, and relationships, and building them into 5 steps to trust and 6 steps of who you can trust. Robin is also the founder and president of People Formula LLC, an organization that offers Advanced Rapport Building Training and Consultation. Having made his way through the ranks of the US Marines, Robin quickly realized his path to leadership was going to be a non-linear one. He learned the defining lesson that leadership is more than telling people what to do, but rather using interpersonal skills to inspire action. With this knowledge, he was recruited into the FBI where he became a counterintelligence specialist and recruited Russian spies. His fascination with human behavior eventually led him to run the FBI’s elite Behavioral Analysis Program. He quickly became a Behavioral Analysis Expert, and has written 3 best-selling books and uses his expertise to train others through his online training academy. In today’s episode, we discuss Robin’s journey to the military and eventually the FBI, how humans are hard-wired socially, and the difference between likability and trust. We’ll also talk about Robin’s 6 signs of predicting human behavior and leadership mantras, how to keep our egos in check, and some of the biggest mistakes we make when trying to build new relationships.
