Have you ever asked yourself...what if?

What if I went all in?

What if I saw what I was really capable of?

What if I really gave it everything and truly made an impact in this world?

My guest on today’s show asked himself those questions from his hospital bed as he was recovering from a rare condition that nearly cost him his life.

He was 30.

It was a few months after the birth of his first son. And he knew he had to make some big changes...

He left that hospital with a new determination, drive, passion and desire to be the best version of himself that he could be.

Fast forward to today...

Ryan Levesque is the #1 best-selling author of the book ‘Ask’ and two others. He’s the creator of 34 information and software products.

He’s a world renowned marketing expert known as "The Funnel Specialist", the guy that companies quietly bring through the back door to go from good to great.

But here’s something that most people don’t realize...

For most of his life, fear ruled him.

Fear of taking chances. Fear of failing. Fear of going broke. Fear of change. Fear of going “all in”.

Until one day, when Ryan decided that fear was no longer going to be his master and instead, it was going to his fuel to go even further and reach new heights...

In Episode #9 of Deconstructing Success.you’re going to get the full story and so much more.

Some of the big things you’ll learn from Ryan in this "jam-packed with takeaways" interview are:

  • Why "Screw It. Let's Do It!" were the 5 most lucrative words of Ryan’s career.
  • Discover the counterintuitive online formula to find out exactly what your customers want to buy.
  • How simple productivity "hacks" tripled Ryan's income (and changed his life).
  • How to accomplish your biggest goals by “keeping the main thing the main thing”
  • How to determine what your true “driving force” in life is through the Through Line exercise
  • And so much more…

We'll cover all of that (and so much more) in this exclusive interview with Ryan Levesque in Episode #9!

I hereby solemnly declare never to freeze in fear, sit in utter despair, or move from foot to foot like a 3 year old on the verge of an “accident” when faced with an email, sales page or Facebook post.

I refuse to smile needlessly, play nice hopelessly, give in uselessly…in the hopes that if they like me enough, they might open their wallets for me.

I am a persuasion revolutionary and I use psychology of persuasion to win hearts, minds and wallets of my audience.”

Thousands and thousands of people have taken this oath and are loyal "soldiers" in the Persuasion Revolution.

Ready to meet the person who has somehow made the science and psychology "sexy, classy and fun"?

Bushra Azhar is one of the world’s leading authorities in the science of persuasion or as she puts it:

“...helping the frustrated, the lost and the uber confused; bulldoze their way through counter-arguments and objections effortlessly and gracefully (like a ballerina on roller-skates).”

Bushra is outspoken, bold, funny, direct and super passionate.

Now here’s the interesting part...

...she grew up as army brat in a culture that favored “pretty little boys” and definitely not bold, outspoken women.

And since she certainly wasn't a "pretty little boy" she made a decision early on to overcome these shackles and in turn used this as motivation to carve her own path and discarding the labels and limitation that others put on her.

Was it easy? Nope.

Did she fail? Yep.

Did that stop here? Nope!

In fact, at one during our interview Bushra said something that led me to rethink what failure (or success) really mean:

"I failed a lot. I just don't label it as a failure. For me it all boils down to the self-imposed labels that people tell themselves."

Find out what she means and get the full story (and so much more) right here in my interview with Bushra in Episode #8 of Deconstructing Success.

Some of the big things you’ll learn from Bushra in this "hilariously informative" interview are:

  • Why she was living a “double-life” and how her husband reacted when he found out.
  • How Bushra "themes her days" for maximum efficiency and uses personal “intention” challenges to reach her goals.
  • The simple “BS detection system” Bushra deploys to suss out fakes online and in real life.
  • How to convince your boss to give you a raise, get a customer to buy or get your kid to clean their room by leveraging persuasion principles.
  • What the “8 Most Powerful Persuasion Switches" are and learn Bushra's step-by-step framework to use them in your business and personal life right away!

We'll cover all of that (and so much more) in this exclusive interview with Bushra Azhar in Episode #8!

He dropped out of law school in 2012 to start his first business. He was scared. He had doubts...lots of them.

But he kept taking action (most of the time, before he was ready). Things slowly moved along...

Then, in early 2013, he got a call that no one ever wants to receive. His younger brother had passed away suddenly.

He was crushed. And even though he didn’t know it at the time, that was the turning point in this young man’s life…

On that day back in 2013, Navid Moazzez made a pledge to himself, his brother and his whole family that he was going to make his business work...no matter what it took.

Fast forward to today, Navid is the leading authority on helping businesses create, promote & profit from virtual summits to skyrocket their business and brand online.

So...how did a young man from Sweden with no experience, no connections and lots of fear & doubt become “the guy” for one of the hottest and most effective forms of online marketing in the world today?

You'll get the full story (and so much more) right here in my interview with Navid in Episode #7 of Deconstructing Success.

Some of the big things you’ll learn in this "non-stop learning session" interview are:

  • How Navid “fails forward fast”; the reason he loves being told NO; and why you should thank your critics.
  • Learn exactly what a virtual summit is; how anyone (in any business or niche) can leverage this powerful tactic; and get the step-by-step process Navid follows for his own events and with his clients.
  • The exact ways he connected with them and built relationships with people like best-selling authors Robert Greene, Cal Newport & David Meerman Scott.
  • What “hustle” really means (hint: it's not just about "business").
  • Discover how Navid sets goals, decides what to work on each day and keeps his mind clear so he can get more accomplished.

We'll cover all of that (and so much more) in this exclusive interview with Navid Moazzez in Episode #7!
