14: Justin Nguyen | Creating Your Own Path Through Podcasts and LinkedIn > College
Justin Nguyen was the student who had “everything”; a high GPA, internships at Fortune 150 companies, and involved on campus… but he still didn’t know what he wanted to do in his life. Instead of going down the traditional path, he decided to start a podcast where he gets to interview people his age who are killing it in their industry, learn from them, and share their stories. Being the son of two Vietnamese Refugees, education was supposed to be the way out, but he’s always felt that he never got the guidance that he was looking for in school. With Young and D.U.M.B. and GetChoGrindup, he is bridging that gap between school and real life application. Justin is a LinkedIn Campus Editor for the University of Central Florida, his content is viewed over 65,000 times each month, and host LinkedIn Workshops on campus to teach students how to leverage LinkedIn to get a full time job after graduation. Through the Young and D.U.M.B. Podcast Justin and his team have interviewed Emmy winners, influencers with tens of millions of followers, successful entrepreneurs; and one thing they all have in common is that they’re just getting started. Each month thousands tune in to listen to these stories. https://www.getchogrindup.com/ Please don’t hesitate to reach out. I promise I will respond to EVERY person who messages me.

13: Brian Schulman | Why You Need to Share Your Story, Even if You Think You Don't Have One
This week Will is joined by Brian Schulman, Founder & CEO of Voice Your Vibe™, a Forbes Featured Entrepreneur, a LinkedIn Top Voice 2018 and LinkedIn Top Video Creator.  However, behind all of the accolades is a seemingly unparalleled struggle that has forged an incredible man. It all began before Brian was born. In fact, he wasn’t even supposed to live at birth, but he did. Later in his life, he was diagnosed with Turrets Syndrome and has been battling it ever since. Now Brian is taking these experiences and turning them into positives. He’s spreading his message through his large LinkedIn following (over 30,000) and through his company Voice Your Vibe™, which aims to maximize the impact of company’s messaging across all platforms and media, as well as within their internal communications.  Brian’s goal is to empower everyone to share their story (because we all have one) while not forgetting what got us here in the first place. This episode even features a never-before heard personal letter from Brian’s daughter, which Brian reads as a testament to his own struggles and perseverance. www.linkedin.com/in/brianschulman.

Chantel is also a top LinkedIn creator, a social media influencer, and a host of the (Un)Learn Show on the social networking platform. The (Un)Learn Show features those who have broken bad habits. In doing so, the show inspires and motivates others to un-learn certain behaviors or beliefs that no longer serve us. By administering the power of positive thinking, Chantel has overcome severe personal and professional obstacles. In my view, Chantel is most certainly a wise leader who practices what she preaches. Yet, her message is always delivered with love, kindness and generosity. Chantel spends a substantial portion of her time coaching others to accept and believe in themselves, and to treat one another with dignity and value, recognizing we are all brothers and sisters. You’ll be inspired by Chantel’s courage, captured by her humble, soft nature, and empowered by her story. Through her storytelling, we are all invited to fully accept what we may perceive as our own, personal weaknesses, to embrace challenges as opportunities, and to convert them into strengths. Likewise, we are encouraged to see and value the diversity of our brothers and sisters in life.

6: Jordan Paris | The Secrets to Growth are Right in Front of You
Jordan Paris is a 21-year-old author, web-developer, podcast host, and former college athlete seen in Men’s Health, Yahoo Finance, and NASDAQ as a beacon of light for inspiring people from all walks of life.  After wallowing in the pit of depression for years, Jordan Paris finally made the decision to climb out; He decided to change his life for the better. He turned to personal development, seeking out countless books, mentors, and ultimately, his unique truths. In only a few short years, Jordan effectively turned his setbacks into setups; he built multiple businesses and his online programs impact lives across the globe.  Jordan’s journey is the latest to prove that anyone can rise up from any challenge to enjoy a prosperous life. He teaches us that a major key to prosperities of all kind is continual growth and development. At a time when people are desperate to improve their lives but are unwilling to improve themselves, Jordan's compelling lessons come in handy for those that seek to create their own reality.  His approach is a bit unorthodox in some ways, though, as he says that there are no seeds of greatness that are already inherently inside us. Instead, he says that we must make a conscious effort to plant these seeds by enrolling in the University of Life, and water them continually in the form of growth and development. In the end, unlike most self-help books that claim there is only one right way to live life, Growth Mindset University argues that there is an infinite amount of truths since what works for one person may not work for another.  In this way, wisdom is merely an accumulation of a wide-ranging spectrum of different perspectives. With this invigorating manifesto, Jordan summons us to seek our own unique truths while empowering us to creatively and effectively design our lives in the manner we wish. Jordan’s podcast, Growth Mindset University, was ranked #227 in the iTunes Education category. On the show, he interviews young up-and-comers and the most successful people on planet earth like David Meltzer, Mark Manson, Rachel Starr, and Dan Lok.  Jordan is also the founder of The WordPress Rocketeer, where he focuses on developing engaging websites to launch his celebrity clients’ dreams to infinity and beyond.  His approach to life and business is simple yet powerful: Don’t make a living, design a life.  With this creator’s mentality, Jordan has been able to produce outstanding results for himself and challenge others to rise above circumstances and take control of their lives. - https://jordanparis.com/  Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

5: Shawn Heide | Going From Homeless to Business Owner with a Laptop
Within just a few months, CEO and Founder of the digital media marketing agency Heide Media, Shawn Heide, has established viewer counts of over 500,000 in 2019 and over 2.4 million views in 4 months in 2018. His recent clients have seen major rises in book sales due to Heide Media handling their content creation and profile optimization, and have seen 4,000 follower increases in just under a month with their content automatically going viral as soon as we take over their social media operations. But given the full context of Shawn’s life, it’s hard to believe he’s even gotten this far. For much of Shawn’s recent adult life he lived out of his car, and later on the street. He would often find himself braving the elements without any shelter and only a bag of clothes and a laptop and charger to his name.  Bouncing between less than ideal sleeping quarters at night and cafes during the day, Shawn began picking up the pieces of his life on the back of just his laptop. Shawn describes several times in which he would have to use a street light to charge his laptop, just so he could work near a coffee shop with internet during the night. Despite all of this adversity, Shawn prevailed, and he recently started Heide Media as a triumph of a previous life. Heide media works with brands and businesses with everything from lead generation to content creation and has been built through Shawn's relentless effort. - https://www.linkedin.com/in/shawn-heide/ Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Cory Warfield is the Co-founder and CEO of ShedWool.  They are an employee scheduling and workforce management software company.  In just a year, they have partnered with IBM, American Airlines, and several other high-profile companies.   Cory wasn’t always an acclaimed CEO, however. For 20 years he worked in the restaurant business, serving tables and chasing his passion projects on the side, but when he found a gap in the market for a program like ShedWool, he went all in.  “All in” wasn’t all it was cracked up to be either. It meant long, sometimes 100 hour long, weeks and countless failures. All of this didn’t discourage Cory, however, as he had been through the entrepreneurial gauntlet before. He took his past experiences and failures and turned them into what ShedWool is today.  ShedWool has helped revolutionize the way businesses in over a dozen industries connect their employees to each other and their work schedules through customizable web and mobile apps. By assembling a team of brilliant engineers, developers, and business specialists, they launched ShedWool cross platform at the beginning of 2017. 5K downloads later, we have published 250K shifts, and saved hundreds of companies thousands of hours and dollars. Cory’s team is always available for customer support, and they proudly offer customized free trials to all, and free services to nonprofits. ShedWool is rated with 4.7 stars on Capterra, the App Store and Google Play. - https://shedwool.com Please don’t hesitate to reach out. I promise I will respond to EVERY person who messages me.

1: Allen Little | How Mentorship & Community Breeds Motivation and Success
Allen Little is the founder of “A Little Motivation,” speaking to groups of people on the power of living authentically. He was a keynote speaker for the Ben Carson Presidential Campaign and has addressed tens of thousands of people across the country on his message. The origin of Allen’s message can be traced back to a time in his life when he wasn’t sure who he should become. Allen struggled for direction, but eventually found a mentor who helped guide him in his personal and professional life. But Allen reached a crossroad, idolizing his mentor he wanted to start doing what his mentor was already successfully doing. Allen’s mentor didn’t let this happen, and by doing so taught Allen a lesson that he would go on to share with people all across the world, live your own, authentic life.  Allen’s message teaches people that they often work too hard on their profession, and that we’re taught the ostensible belief that working hard long hours is the only way to generate a decent income to provide for their family. Although action is necessary, there is a way to be proficient without burning yourself out, and by doing so you can work half as hard and still create double the results.  Allen helps people live authentically, excel at their profession and actually have time to enjoy the fruits of their labor. He’s helped individuals create seven figure incomes for themselves and still come home to their families every night enlivened and fulfilled.  - www.rethinkingbig.com  Please don’t hesitate to reach out.
