Business Machine 0052 - Bedros Keuilian

May 8, 2017

Bedros Keuilian is a best-selling author, speaker and business consultant. He's the founder and CEO of Fit Body Bootcamp, one of the nation’s fastest growing franchises and an investor in over a dozen companies ranging from software, digital ad agencies and coaching and consulting services.

He's known as the hidden genius that entrepreneurs, best-selling authors and thought leaders turn to when they want to create high level mastermind and coaching programs, quickly scale their businesses.

His sales, marketing, and business systems are the secret weapon used by thousands of successful digital marketers and entrepreneurs who want to reach more high paying clients and customers without the use of unpredictable or sleazy marketing tactics.

An immigrant from a communist country turned hugely successful entrepreneur, Bedros uses the stage, TV and social media platforms to share his personal Immigrant Edge and American Dream story to help inspire audiences worldwide to reach their fullest potential.

Mission: Bedros hopes to teach that at first it is about the hustle and grind to start your business, but the smart entrepreneur knows that after some time, it's about scale and strategy. He also strives to let people know how it is easier than ever to strive towards the American Dream in terms of resources, it only becomes more difficult because of the transparency so many customers want when looking into businesses.

Mistakes: He had started selling supplements online far before many people used the Internet, thus he lost $55,000 because the business was too far ahead of its time. He also started an online subscription when no one knew, liked, or trusted him, and thus he lost $126,000. He also brought in a business partner that did not do well with the company, and urges entrepreneurs to only add a partner if they bring a specialized skill or knowledge that they do not possess or care to possess to help strengthen the business.

Business Machine 0048 - Carolin Soldo

February 27, 2017

Carolin is a well respected business coach, specializing in helping passion-driven women bring their skills to the world and launch thriving online coaching businesses with international reach, make an impact, and create free and abundant lives. She's built a seven figure business while maintaining a healthy work-life balance b/c she's so dedicated to being fully present with her two young boys.

Mission: Helping women create the life of their dreams by empowering them and giving them the tools they need to do just that.

Mistake: When she first started, she spent her first year-and-a-half tied to her desk, working alone and focusing on doing things cheaply instead of with quality. It was fear that held her back from quitting her corporate job and committing fully to her business, and because of that her personal relationship with her family, her business, and her sanity suffered.

Recommendations:
-Book: Think and Grow Rich

-Quote: “Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it! Begin it now.” - William Hutchison Murray

Eat With: Tony Robbins and Mark Zuckerberg

App/Tech: Facebook Messanger, Calendar

Contact: Carolinsoldo.com

Legacy: She hopes to show her boys that she took some risks, even when it wasn't always easy, and she worked hard to succeed, even if she didn't always do so. She wants them to feel that they are limitless and free to do what they want to, whether that means college or just finding a job, and to go for what they are driven to do.
