The Recipe for Success, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO182

People always email or DM me and say stuff like “Oh, Andy, I’m going to be the best entrepreneur that you’ve ever seen. I know you’ll be proud.” But then they add, “Uh, but I don’t know where to start.” Well, in this episode, I tell you where the start.  I give you the basic sh*t you need to do to get rolling in business and making money.”

Talent Vs. Choice, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO181

Does loads of talent determine your success? No. So stop looking at other people and say, “Man, if I had his talent, I’d be able to achieve my goals.” That’s total bullsh*t.  Here’s the reality: It’s not lack of talent or ability or circumstances that keep you from success. It’s the failure to make the right choices. You have to know what to do and to choose to do it.

Lewis Howes’ Mask of Masculinity, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO180

My buddy Lewis Howes wrote a book called The Mask of Masculinity. He joined me in the studio and we talked about how getting honest and transparent and dealing with your sh*t will help you succeed. We also talked about how being vulnerable doesn’t make you a p*ssy, but actually helps you be even more driven and competitive. This is one of my favorite episodes ever.  Listen and learn.

100-0: It’s A Lifestyle, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO179

When we’re little, most of us are encouraged to be great. But when we get older, for some reason, the script changes. We’re told to be practical, realistic. The people who used to support us now discourage us–so we can be average, like them. You need to learn how to react to people like that. You need to learn to get p*ssed at their negativity and drive it into productive action. Learn to do whatever it takes to “live a life that says ‘I told you so’ without having to say a word.”

Serious Millionaires Know When To Laugh, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO177

I’ve told a lot of you guys that when my best friend and I started our business, we were so broke we had to live in the back of our store and sleep on an old mattress from Goodwill. In this episode, I go into detail about actually sleeping on that mattress, how embarrassing it was, but what it taught me: Successful people know when they shouldn’t take themselves too seriously. If you learn to laugh at yourself, you’ll laugh all the way to the bank.

The Key Flaw That Keeps Millennials (And You) From Success, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO176

Are Millennials entitled? Do they lack work ethic? There’s some legitimacy to those charges. But on the other hand, there are plenty of young people (men and women under 30) who have the drive and ability to do great things. In this episode, I talk about the key flaw in many Millennials. It might be what’s keeping you from success, too.

Know Your Limits, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO174
