What is failure? And why has it gotten a bad rap?
Most of us have gone through an education system that stigmatizes mistakes. Make mistakes, and you get low grades. Make enough mistakes, and you fail.
Failing earns you the label of loser, a person of low intelligence. If you accept the label, you step into a low status identity. That identity becomes the frame through which you view the world.
CHANGE THE FRAME
Refuse to see failure as something negative. Answer the question, “what is failure,” like this. Failure is an important necessary step on the road to success. You’ll be in great company.
Thomas Edison is a prime example of man who delighted in failure. On the subject of his many “failed” attempts to invent the light bulb, Edison said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”
MINDSET – MINDSET – MINDSET
You may know exactly what the word mindset means. But until you experience the power of shifting your mindset, of changing your limiting beliefs (stories) to empowering ones, you won’t fully appreciate the meaning of mindset.
Today’s podcast guest is Todd Palmer. His story will nudge and inspire you to view the world through an empowering frame. His story will help you discover a mindset that fires you up and can make you unstoppable. Todd is a guy who failed forward to success. His answer to what is failure was always positive.

THE BATTLE OF IF & WHEN
They are two small everyday words. They have the power to determine your failure and success. The words are if and when.
Make no mistake about it. They are at war. And you should care which one wins.
Digital technology is revolutionizing our world. It’s transforming communication, transportation, sales, real estate, medicine, and every other industry that touches our lives. One of those industries is architectural design.
Today’s guest is Bryan Luoma, an entrepreneur with a background in civil engineering. Bryan’s passion is helping businesses evolve in the 21st century. His expertise is computer-aided drafting, or CAD, which helps architects, engineers, contractors, and manufacturers design and create anything that can be built.
Bryan offers his clients the unfair advantage of dramatically increasing the number of projects that they can successfully execute at one time without compromising the quality of their work. In fact, the quality of their projects dramatically increases as well. Bryan Luoma delivers on this big promise by harnessing the talent of a remote team in the Philippines who use 2D and 3D drafting models. Clients benefit from a high standard of professionalism while contributing to the culture and livelihood of their overseas team. Simultaneously, they become more profitable.
This podcast will expand your vision of business, success, and contribution in an age that is moving us closer to a world that is truly one global society.
You’ll get excited by the potential of computer-aided drafting to enhance the speed, the precision, and the creativity of building and manufacturing. CAD also exponentially increases the ability for long distance collaboration on design projects.
You’ll begin to understand and appreciate the enriching power of outsourcing. You’ll discover how this approach to doing business can dramatically increase productivity and profit. Plus, it naturally supports creative cooperation.
Bryan’s vision inspires us to expand our connectivity and move beyond our comfortable borders toward a world of unlimited abundance.

Laughter heals wounds. Especially, emotional wounds. Some of the deepest wounds stem from the feeling that you are an outsider, a person who does not belong.
Today’s guest, Hal Eisen, is a charming, handsome, loving, funny human being. He is a gift for making people laugh and feel really good. It’s a double edged gift.
You laugh at his wicked sense of humor; and you laugh at his laugh. Yes, Hal has a contagious laugh.
He is an actor and a designer. He tells us in the podcast that his theatre friends have asked him not to let them know when he is in the audience of a play they are in.
Why? Because, if it is a comedy, and they don’t hear Hal’s laugh, they will be disappointed. If it is a drama, and they hear his laugh, they will be disappointed. That’s what you call a lose, lose situation.
You will be moved by the journey Hall takes you on in this interview. You’ll discover how and why laughter became his powerful survival tool.
I’ll guess that most of us have at some time in our lives felt unwanted, cast aside, not knowing where we belong. That is scary and painful. The feeling of being an outsider has triggered many suicides.
Hal is no stranger to the outsider’s pain. You’ll love the way he used laughter to heal his wounds.
You’ll be inspired by the way Hal gradually changed his story and his life. He was considered the ugly duckling in high school. He was humiliated and abused.
That phase of his life was the before portrait that contrasts strongly with the after portrait of a good looking, creative, sharp man about town.
You will also learn about the empowering “it get’s better” campaign that helps people reclaim their dignity and saves lives.
It’s interesting that Hal is passionate about his design work with his partner, Andrew, in the Bottecchia Artistic Group. They specialize in residential and commercial makeovers. Sounds like writing a new story over and over again.
This is the kind of story we all need to hear. We are enriched by the feelings it awakens in us. We are uplifted by the gift of laughter that heals wounds.

A WOMAN CLAIMS HER LIFE
What does it mean to own your power? This podcast will answer that question and inspire you to live the life you deserve and not settle for anything less.
Today’s guest is Edna Keep, an ordinary woman who accomplished extraordinary things by by having the courage to live her dream.
Edna’s dream was to stop struggling as a single mom living in subsidized housing. She set her mind to it, and she did it.
Next, she wanted to create wealth for her and her family. She did it.
Today, she continues to expand her wealth and coaches others to live independent lives of abundance.
Anyone can accomplish what Edna Keep has accomplished – if they are willing to step into and through their fears.
Edna has created wealth through real estate investing. That takes guts. The first time you face a six figure buying decision, fear will rear its ugly head.
Edna conquered that fear. Even before she made her first real estate purchase, she chose to invest in Robert Kiyosaki’s intense real estate investment training. The cost? Almost $40,000.
High ticket courses like that one trigger a crippling fear of loss in many people, and they run for cover. Edna walked right into the face of that fear and won.
You will learn the mindset that leads to enormous wealth when you listen to Edna. You will gain the confidence that you can be, do, or have anything you want.
Plus, you will learn how to create your fortune using other people’s money.
Edna’s passion, courage, and insights will give you the exact formula to change your story and change your life.
