S3-37: Eric Berman:
Entrepreneur Extraordinaire

“If you’re listening to this… I want you to try this for twenty-four hours. Think about every situation, and say to yourself, ‘I am responsible.’ If you don’t do that you’ll stagnate and never get ahead.” ~Eric Berman

A varied and enviable background, EB has been a bachelor on the hit reality show Millionaire Matchmaker. He’s stood in the winner’s circle multiple times at Del Mar as part of the winning horse’s ownership group. He’s part owner in multiple popular restaurants throughout San Diego, and perhaps best of all (at least according to MG), he is long-term business partners with the personal development legend Brian Tracy.

EB begins the show sharing how some early career success with a Facebook-like company (collegeclub.com) in the ’90s goes terribly sideways as it collides head first into the exploding dot-com disaster of the late ’90s.

As “guy #3” in the fast-growing company, he was close to all the action when his company failed to qualify for a bridge loan amid the market collapse; before long they had to lay off 200+ employees and ultimately file bankruptcy.

EB shares how he adapted, took stock of what he did have, and kept moving. Not too much later a family friend connected him with Brian Tracy, and Eric shares his secret offer and strategy that makes his sales pitch a true no-brainer!

MG asks EB for his very best personal development /success tip after working so closely with BT for fifteen-plus years, and it comes down to just THREE WORDS! (minute 38:00)

Enjoy the show!

S3-24: MBM – On Your Toes!

“If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” ~Clint Eastwood
Martin kicks off this episode with his GTR, (good things report) what he believes might just be a great trick to help him remember names. Henry’s GTR is about his recent trip to the desert with the family to see the amazing desert bloom. The spring flowers are flourishing as a result of the recent and heavy rainfall in California.

Jumping into today’s topic; “Staying on your toes” they both share how easy it is to fall back into “comfort” and “security”. To become complacent and then before one realizes it they are “playing” defense” and have fallen back into “protection mode” rather than pushing forward and continuing to learn and challenge themselves.

It’s easy to fall back on your heels, become tentative, hesitant and insecure. And, Henry and MG use the old sports analogy that is almost cliche these days. That of the football team with a big lead who will go into a “Prevent Defense”. If you saw the most recent Superbowl many contend that is precisely what happened to the Atlanta Falcons. The strategy (to preserve the lead) seems to almost always backfire and prevent the team with the lead from winning.

Why does that happen so often? Well, one team is focused upon what they DO NOT want to happen while the other team is focused upon what they DO want to happen. The interesting thing is both teams are focused upon the same thing.

What are you focused upon? What you want to happen or what you do NOT want to happen?

The question the hosts offer the listener is this: WHO KNOWS FOR SURE WHAT THE FUTURE HOLDS?

If the reason people become hesitant and insecure, and stop taking action is because they are afraid and think they might fail, then the question is, “WHO KNOWS FOR SURE?”

The answer of course is NOBODY knows for sure and even with “failure” there are so many benefits that come of it. So the ONLY mindset that really makes sense is the “BE ON YOUR TOES” ? an aggressive, confident and optimistic view about what you DO WANT To HAPPEN!

So, go for it! Enjoy the show! ; )

Here’s a recent post on the same topic from thehabitfactor.com’s blog. Enjoy!

Mind Bullet Monday 03: Principles and Lighthouses


“Fundamentally, these are the core four— the power four— that sustain us and direct our outcome and well being…”

Martin opens with a story shared by the late, great Dr. Stephen Covey regarding the unwavering principles that influence the outcome of our life. If these are ignored, dishonored the consequences are severe.

Covey shares a fabled (and apparently fabricated) story about a US Navy Captain being told that another ship is in their course and further, is unwilling to move.

The Captain gets on the phone and demands the other ship to move or suffer the consequences.

The importance of checking our ego, asking questions and “honoring” these four dimensions helps us to direct the consequences. That is, since the lighthouses (the principles are unwavering) we must “move” and honor them with our actions in order to experience the outcomes we desire.

Dr. Covey’s four dimensions are:

  • Mind
  • Body
  • Heart
  • Spirit

Grunburg sees some overlap between the heart and the body and also the mind and so, insists that the social dimension (is missing) and is a governing principle in our lives that cannot be overlooked

  • Mind
  • Body
  • Spirit
  • Social

Hear all about it on this Mind Bullet Monday!

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

“If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” ~African Proverb

There are very few things in the world more powerful than that of a strong TEAM— a group of individuals committed  to a clear, common goal.

TOGETHER. EVERYONE. ACHIEVES. MORE.  ~John Maxwell

While it’s tempting to be a “one-man band” or an “efficiency machine” ultimately, one person can never keep up with the long term value that a TEAM provides.  Join Martin and I as we discuss what makes a good team, what can destroy a team and important strategies for building your own dream team.

According to the late, great Dr. Stephen Covey, (author, businessman, and speaker)  there are three stages of maturity; dependence, independence and ultimately, inter-dependance (the highest stage).

Unfortunately, most individuals believe that independence is the pinnacle of maturity.  It isn’t.

[Tweet ““The strength of the team is in each member and the strength of each member is in the team.” “]

For the wise (you), the end-game is INTER-DEPENDENCE. Ultimately, you should strive to move past the “me vs. we” mentality and build bridges.
Core traits and qualities to look for in a solid team:

  1. Harmony
  2. Vision and alignment
  3. Shared values
  4. Strong leader

And, much more… join us now to check it out ; )

Thanks!
