||CleanFrom Consultant to Sex Trafficking Abolitionist||Written by Codie Sanchez ...She saw children being sold into slavery in Cambodia and she said enough... It all started with a little girl named Nomi. This little girl had been through things one can hardly imagine halfway across the world. Thankfully she met Diana Mao and Diana instead of continuing on her lucrative and successful track as a consultant became the President and Co-Founder of Nomi Network. She saw children being sold into slavery in Cambodia and she said enough. What does that mean? Well Diana is a modern day gladiator. She’s an abolitionist whose mission is to ensure the complete end of human trafficking in her lifetime. This small of frame, but not of mind, human rights champion and I talk about: The moment her life changedHow she manages international teams across multiple countriesAll while contributing to Reuters, HuffPostAlso being a Presidential Leadership ScholarHow to create a non-profit in a way that makes an impact and is sustainable.What makes a successful partnershipHow to handle international crises.Her story is the kind that gives you chills. AND inspires you to do more. She’s an abolitionist whose mission is to ensure the complete end of human trafficking in her lifetime. I dare you to read their origin story and not be inspired… “Nomi Network’s namesake is an eight-year-old survivor of sex trafficking who now lives in a supportive partner shelter in Cambodia. Co-founders Diana Mao and Alissa Moore first met Nomi on a visit in 2008. As a child living in a rural village, Nomi was sexually abused by multiple perpetrators and was treated worse than an animal. She has physical scars, but also emotional scars from her abuse which will pose major challenges to her living independently and reintegrate back into society. Nevertheless, Nomi has grown into a beautiful young woman, with a warmth that’s contagious and a generous heart. It was through her friendship and resilience that we realized that she did not have to be defined by her past, but that she could be defined by her future. Nomi Network exists so that survivors will be able to say with confidence, know me, know my story, know my success.” Nomi Network exists so that survivors will be able to say with confidence, know me, know my story, know my success. So if you are searching for meaning, impact, a life to help or a change to make this is the episode for you.So without further ado please enjoy my conversation with Diana Mao.

||CleanKumar Arora - Hustling with Heart||Written by Codie Sanchez Kumar AroraCleveland Hustles w/ HeartTV Star, Angel Investor, Fashion Mogul and Entrepreneur Dishes His StoryIf you’ve watched Lebron James, TV show Cleveland Hustles, if you are a fashion or streetwear savant, or if you play in the realm of angel investing then you probably know my friend, Kumar Arora. If you don’t know him I loved this quote from Inside business magazine on him, “Kumar Arora is cool..” They have a point. He hosts parties at hidden gems through his Black Rose Entertainment. He is a co-owner of the popular streetwear brand Ilthy, and also owns Sunglass brand Rogue eyewear which really lives up to it’s name and is doing some pioneering work with stone glasses. So if you see Kumar today, with companies that have millions in revenue a year, launching new products constantly, on TV and sites like Inc and Inside Biz, you might not realize that he’s had to grind just like all of us. Some of my favorite parts of this interview are him talking about how he (like many of us in 2008) couldn’t find a gig and so his counselor told him to go make one. And he made multiple. How he analyzes a company in a way I’ve never heard any other investor contemplate, how he sets small goals which snowball into large ones, and how he systematically created his own empire based solely on the things and people he loves. Also pay attention to the part on the question he always asks in meetings, and the best way he’s ever been pitched for anything. If you are looking for seed money, a mentor, or just how to get more of what you want there are some nuggets here. Get your popcorn ready.. and your notebook and pen out, or get with the 21st century and open your evernote file, because this guy spits some sage wisdom at us. Some of the questions we dug into:Your origin story…. What made you the man you are today, serial entrepreneur, angel investor, founder with companies that rev over $8mm annually, in numerous startups tv star on Cleveland hustles? When did you decide you wanted to build a company as opposed to be a part of a company? What drive keeps you going when you are burning the candle on both ends flying back and forth from LA to Cleveland, grinding on your businesses and your brand? I’ve been struggling lately with the balance of promotion vs. creation? What do you do to balance the two? What is the one thing you believe wholeheartedly that almost no one agrees with you on? What are you most excited about that you are working on currently? (Spoiler alert it's a kickstarter campaign for epic sunglasses!). Hope you enjoy our chat below as much as I did!!

||CleanMind Hacks from Pro Athletes to Olympians||Written by Codie Sanchez Jason Richardson… (all social links are here)Secrets from the Psychologist to Professional Athletes & OlympiansHow to Find Fulfillment, Happiness, and Peace. Aka How Do We Win at Life?To make it to the peak of any sport (and isn’t that what life is?) most athletes will tell you the athletic ability is just the foundation, the real difference is mental fortitude or how strong your mind is. It makes sense. As did you know, we are actually more likely to die in a car accident (1 in 113) than make it as a professional football player even as a kid who plays in high school or college (1 in 325 college students make it or 1 in 1,010 high school players). To beat those kind of odds you must have a different mental gear I figured. So I tracked down the man who gets in the heads of the highest performing among us, professional athletes and Olympians, Dr. Jason Richardson. I am fascinated with the mind and the power it has over each of us and humanity collectively. So when I came across World Champion BMX biker, professional speaker and psychologist to champions Dr Jason Richardson, I interrogated him in my typical reformed journalist manner. Jason specializes in human behavior and specifically how to train your brain like an athlete trains his or her body. I love the idea that we could actually control our actions and thought patterns through better understanding our own cognition. So in this episode we dive into Jason’s book, Gold Metal Mindset, what the biggest mistakes are people make when they try to change their habits, how he overcomes anxiety and recalibrates his mind, and the lessons he’s imparting upon hundreds of clients and listeners so that they can go become world class in their own right. I hope you enjoy this episode, consider it a free chat with your very own award winning psychologist, as much as I enjoyed interviewing him. I love the idea that we could actually control our actions and thought patterns through better understanding our own cognition There are a million tactics but if you don’t plug your DNA into whatever it is you do, the tactics won’t work. Favorite quotes: “Humans are an interesting bunch. We’re messy at best. Beautiful, but messy.” His mantra: “The more I do, the more I can do.” “Your primal brain is designed for one function. To protect you.” “There are a million tactics but if you don’t plug your DNA into whatever it is you do, the tactics w||12/9/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||CleanHow To Become A Millionaire.. From A Millionaire||Written by Codie Sanchez Ask a Millionaire: Q&A on Hitting Seven Figures with Shawn Thomas of @AskaMillionaire Let’s say you want to be a millionaire. So you google search, “how to become a millionaire?” and this guy’s face pops up. This is Shawn Thomas of (@askamillionaire or @askshawnthomas). And I bet you can guess what he’s achieved, and how many zeros’ come with it. Doubters Don’t Pay Your Bills. So Don’t Pay Them With Your Attention. To be honest, the millionaire status wasn’t as interesting to me, although I suppose it does mean he is in the global 1%. What was interesting is that he is now building a business on how to teach others to accomplish the same thing, financial freedom. And people are eating it up. In fact, he has amassed millions (there's that word again) of followers because humans want to know how to achieve the elusive 7-figure-dream. But the best part is that Shawn has one of my favorite characteristics, he’s not that nice. (Sorry, Shawn but don’t worry I’m not that nice either). What does that mean? It means that in this breakdown he is the type of human that actually tells you what it will take to achieve a high level of financial success, he doesn’t sugar coat it and he just might help you get there as opposed to most coaches that tell you if you “visualize it enough” or if you “believe in yourself," that you will wiggle your magic fingers and make it happen. So Shawn and I dive into where most people mess up, how you can achieve financial success 10x as fast, the future of building social media followings, and he even goes into my favorite realm of what happens when you achieve it all, and still have that little hole inside of you. From playing for the circus, to signing a record deal, to going $100k in debt this guy epitomizes what it means to climb and share not just your highlight reel. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Shawn Thomas as much as I did… My Favorite Lines:On how to grow a big following: “Just start, most people don’t do even that.”The question he gets asked the most: “How do I find success?”How he defines success: Balance of 7 areas of my life: Spiritual, Health, Bank Account, Friends, Love, Family, and Business.
