Your Best, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO120

“I’m doing my best.” That’s what people say all the time. But Andy Frisella asks, “what is your best?” According to The MFCEO, “your best” is always developing, always evolving. That’s why you can’t ever really say you’ve achieved your best. Instead, you should be constantly pushing yourself to your best, which will always be just out of your reach.

Five Days In, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO118

Even if you’ve already screwed up your plan, stop being in love with the idea of success and start actually working toward it. Now.

The Intangibles, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO114

“Steve” is “the average mother f*cker.” He buys all the success books. He goes to all the seminars. But nothing ever changes for him. Why? According to Andy Frisella, he doesn’t have “The Intangibles.” These are: heart, desire, drive, passion, intensity, a will to win. Do you have these? If you don’t, nothing will ever change for you, either. If you do, you’ll be part of the 1 percent that truly achieve success and greatness. Ultimately, your actions will answer that question.

Make Your Now Resolution, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO110

Look back at your life over the last several months. What did you accomplish? Did you stick to the resolutions you made back in January?

Approach And Engage, with Andy Frisella – MFCEO109

Doing business today, people might think that online technology makes in-person contact less important. Only morons believe that. That’s like saying that since we have the internet, we no longer need to know the alphabet. Wrong. The alphabet is fundamental; and so is one-on-one interaction. In spite of websites and social media accounts, businesses still have to make real phone calls, sometimes even go door-to-door, and have real conversations with real people. In business and in all of life, successful people know how to approach and engage.
