We are very excited to bring you part 2 of our conversation with Chris Plough, Entrepreneur, Storyteller, and Adventurer.

We jump right back into the conversation with Ben asking Chris Plough to help explain how to find your True North.  Chris has a very specific way that he works through his ideas to help keep him on the path and he shares that with us.

Besides jumping into a Wraith and driving around Europe, Chris Plough takes us through the methods he uses to make time for himself and gives his mind a place to work and bubble up ideas.

We then get on another tangent by Josh and Chris Plough encouraging Ben to share his own motorcycle story.  Ben shares the story of his bike wreck which includes totaling the bike, road rash, and an overpass.  While Josh and Chris enjoyed the story, it wasn't the one Josh wanted to hear and prompts Ben again for the story of a mustang, the center stripe on a two lane highway, two semi-trucks, and 130 miles per hour.

We bring things back to business with Chris Plough sharing how he makes time in his day for both business and time for himself.  Chris's method is key to making his day feel like a win and the things he gets done feeling like icing on the cake.

Finally, Chris Plough drops his Value Bombs on us:

  • You have to be vulnerable at least with yourself
  • Your network is your net worth
  • Question everything

We are very excited to bring you part 1 of our conversation with Chris Plough, Entrepreneur, Storyteller, and Adventurer.

Chris Plough starts of the show by sharing some of his 'reset' adventures including driving an ambulance across Europe, riding a motorcycle and side car in the arctic, and racing a Rolls Royce Wraith in Europe.

Next, Chris Plough takes some time to walk us through his history. He has worked for small startups, for large companies (that acquired the small startup), started his own business, purchased ambulances (yes, more than one), the loss of his parents and how he handled that, his vision of Utopia and if he is there.

We are excited to bring you part 2 of our conversation with Ryan Deiss, CEO of Digital Marketer, co-founder of Idea Incubator LP, speaker, loving husband, and father of four.

We jump right back into the show by learning how to ask your audience what they want and you do that by offering them a product.  Offers are great because you can drive the conversation with your offers and if your audience like it, they will vote for it with their pocketbook.

Ryan Deiss shares a couple stories about oscillating between making money and being broke.  Google made a change to their algorhythms and his business stopped.  He got better by running up $250,000 in credit card debt.  He fixed that only to find out he owed a ton in back taxes to the government.  His experience is a great lesson we should all learn and keep in mind.

Ryan Deiss drops some value bombs on us!

  • Chaos is okay
  • Life is not about checking a bunch of stuff off a list
  • Remember that you don't actually matter
