Great show today with Marc Mawhinney of Natural Born Coaches.

With Natural Born Coaches, he helps other coaches build their businesses through his podcast and services.

Utopia was hard for Marc to define. It has changed over the years. His Utopia is living a life that makes him happy and is on his terms.

Utopian Quotes of the Show

"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning, goes to bed at night, and gets up and loves what he wants to do" - Bob Dylan

He has changed his life around to a more balanced life that is on his terms since he was younger.

He started at 21 in real estate and for 20 years built up a successful real estate company. He used to work crazy hours and spent plenty of time working until late at night (does this sound like any of you?).

He thought that’s what he wanted but has since realized that that wasn’t his Utopia. His son, who is now 6, changed his thought of what a Utopia is.

He has always had the issue of “chasing the rainbow” and has always had a hard time to stop and appreciate what he has.

After staying clean of stumbles and achieving consistent success for some time, then stumbling greatly in 2008 with the real estate market crash, that money and status were low priorities in life. This humbling experience had a great impact on him.

Just like other Build Your Utopia guests, he realized that quality of life, not money and status were more important.

Check out these books that Marc recommends:

Currently like many of you, Marc is working towards having a lifestyle business that allows him to focus on what's most important, his son, his family, and himself. Nothing delights him more than being able to relax and play Lego Batman with his son.

To Marc, using your time wisely with focus is his key to success and maintaining a work-life balance. 

Learn to say “no” to people, personally and in business.

The 3 Value Bombs for Utopians:

  • Don’t sweat the small stuff
  • Change is good
  • Be bold. Don’t play small and be conservative

2nd Utopian Quote of the Show!

"Don’t sweat the small stuff. Nothing is life and death." - Marc Mawhinney

Inspired by Build Your Utopia and past guests, he just changed his name to Marc Redbull inspired by past guest Jason Surfrapp (if you haven't listened to this show, you really should). Click here to listen!
