We have all been there, we were all young. I cannot help but to wonder have times really changed that much? In speaking with friends I think back, and yes, I was not that engaged as an individual. However, did I ever reach this level I am not really sure. It seems its not just a lack of engagement, but a total lack of effort. The youth today seems to totally lack any motivation. I say this not just about students, but at 27, I am also speaking about those of my own generation. I seem to know so many my age that not only do not work, but really seem to have no motivation for life. What has happened to us? I say this not as the old codger, but rather I say it just as an observer. This is not to say that all millennials are bad, because in fact they have been a huge source of innovation. However, the generation below myself is quite concerning to me.

It seems that many things can be pointed to as part of the issue, not only the welfare state, but also technology as well. As a people we have little patience; social media has rewired our brains in such a way that we cannot wait for anything. People just do not even complete simple tasks, as simple as not even cleaning up garbage. Its always pushed aside and blamed on someone else, but what can be seen in garbage can be seen in many things. We have a total lack of accountability, everyone seems to be looking for the next person that they can shift the blame upon. There in lies the problem: the situation cannot be solved if there is no one to take the blame for it. Just like the first step of AA, someone needs to admit that a problem exists. If there is no admitted problem, then there is no one to readily accept a solution; if something is not wrong then a solution is not needed.

I saw a political cartoon just the other day that made this real for me. In the cartoon, there are two images of parents reactions now and parents before the 1960’s. In the earlier picture, the parents are questioning the student about his grades and why they are so poor. In the second, the parents are angrily questioning the teacher why the student’s grades are poor. Its simple, but its a good explanation of just where the problem starts. I have never been a parent, though I hope to one day be, so I cannot profess to be an expert. I am left with an essential question: “Do we love our kids too much?”

We all love our kids, and want them to succeed, but do we do too much for them? We have to hold them responsible and teach the accountability; that is where it starts. Think of it like a ripple, it starts in the home, and it starts with the baby boomers, the generation after World War II. Their parents spoiled them with the new idea of American wealth. They loved them so very much and wanted to give them the world that they never had; that’s a wonderful thing. The problem is, that they never learned self-sufficiency, and from that started a cycle. Each successive generation spoiled their youth, and less and less was expected. I’ll admit it, my parents spoiled me, but they did teach me the responsibility to be an adult. That is the problem, we are not showing our kids we love them by not teaching them that life is not fair.

However, that being said, I think Gen Y actually has an amazing mind for entrepreneurialism. They have differing views than the rest of a society that has not kept up with the shifting tides, one that in a few years, will totally be in their court. They have different core values, which are tied to freedom and not long, hard hours. Rather, they want a business that can scale quickly and produce income that is not tied to their hours; they understand their hours are limited. These are the growing pains of society, tied to a generation that has learned from observing their parents.

The Millennial generation I feel like gets a raw deal, there’s a lot of hustle there, but its a different type than a lot of people are used to, and because of that, they’re not sure how to react to it. I wanted to get to the hear of the matter, and bring in some that I saw with a lot of hustle, so today, we have 5 minutes from 18-year-old Jared Dykas. He has helped to put together a really active group in RECN and managed to not only meet Gary Vaynerchuk, but also run an even with him. I’ll let Jared tell you in his own words the different type of hustle that he sees from his generation; this is shot, but strap yourself in.

Laura Coe is an entrepreneur, author, and mom. At 24, she co-founded a healthcare tech business and later sold it to a Fortune 500 where she stayed on as an executive. After 11 years of success in business, she found herself very successful, and very unfulfilled. So, she tried yoga, alternative medicine, and anything she thought would help me feel fulfilled. But nothing worked.

Obsessed with the idea of fulfillment, she dove into its philosophical roots and discovered that she was "emotionally obese"-- she had layers upon layers of assumptions, fears, and negative thoughts that had piled on over the years like "emotional fat" and in order to lose them, she had to learn to shed the "emotional weight."

In This Episode:

  • Organizing Information can be profitable.
  • Figuring out purpose in work.
  • Understanding who you surround yourself with.
  • How to understand what people are really saying.
  • The value in mentorship.
  • Learning when and how to delegate.
  • Understanding the difficulty in being an entrepreneur.

He started asking himself framing questions to reveal where he was on his own way. In the end, it all boiled down to assuming things were impossible just because he hadn't seen them succeed yet. He then went on journey, which initially, was not a profitable one, but succeeded in creating freedom for himself; here's his story.

In This Episode:

  • Transitioning from employee to full-time entrepreneur.
  • The highs and lows of being an entrepreneur.
  • What happens when cognitive dissidence occurs with you day job?

Its always been a funny thing to say to someone to "Take a cold shower," but it may be one of the best tips that you have ever been given. There are many benefits of taking a cold shower if you can handle it. I have been doing it for about three weeks now, and in addition to diet, have seen a pretty nice drop in body fat. I recently started reading the 4 Hour Body and have tried a bunch of the crazy experiments to see exactly how they work. I have found many positive results in my body and will continue to experiment and see exactly where this rabbit hole leads.

  • Cold showers burn fat:this is initially what attracted me to them. In the 4 Hour Body, Tim Ferriss speaks about a massive increase in body fat burning. He started by looking at swimmers and why they can consume such a massive amount of calories and not go up in body fat. Their massive amount of swimming, 3-4 hours daily can contribute to this, but they still do not swim enough to burn the massive amount of calories, such as the 12,000 taken in by Michael Phelps a day. When looking at it, they found the high level of heat of the pool really magnified calorie burn, but to an extreme. So a NASA scientist, looking to make himself a bit skinnier and not willing to sit in a pool for 4 hours a day, checked out cold exposure and found that it burned more calories in significantly less time; 10-20 minutes. So Ferriss looked at this and started taking ice baths for 20 minutes a day, I'm totally not doing that because of the immense amount of pain it can potentially create. Then, there was a break through in types of fat that the human body carries. We have two types of fat in our bodies, white and brow. The brown fat is actually a fat that burns other fat, like the type in muscle milk, is stored in the back of your shoulders and activated by extreme cold or extreme heat. So, set your timer for ten minutes, clean yourself quick, then turn the water cold. Make sure to focus all of that shower on the back of your neck and upper shoulders and let the body fat burn!
  • Cold showers boost workout recovery:Ever heard of pro athletes sitting in an ice bath for 20-30 minutes to recover faster? Well, not you can have most of those results in a significantly shorter and less painful time. Cold showers stop lactic acid build up as well as removing inflammation that may be starting in a muscle or the whole body for that matter.
  • Cold showers can enhance mood:your heart rate increases from a cold shower and thus your body process speed up a bit. Therefore, they wake you up and make you feel a bit better by catching your groggy body up with the rest of the world.
  • Cold showers enhance immunity:Remember since cold showers are speeding your metabolism, they are actually speeding up your total metabolic rate. With that comes a greater sense of wellness and a greater ability to fight off disease.

You may think I'm bit crazy, but remember to put on a timer. Also, go back and reference the first reason: you only need to do it for ten minutes a day and it only needs to hit your neck and shoulders. Your body will actually really appreciate your new found sense of adventure. Now, go take a cold shower.

Vick Tipnes was born in London, England and immigrated to Florida as a young boy with his Family. He always knew that he wanted to be an Entrepreneur from a very young age. He gave college a shot, but after 6 months he decided to drop out and pursue his goals.

Vick then struggled through various businesses that he started and sold, but didn’t really reach his full potential, when compared to the image he had in his mind. It wasn’t until he was 35 years old that he really woke up and realized that he needed to truly invest in himself if he was going to become anything in life. Once that ball dropped for him, everything changed. He took massive action to learn and educate himself as much as he could. He became obsessed with bettering himself, and invested every dollar he. At the time he had little or no money, he didn’t even have a sofa, but he had belief in himself.

He started Blackstone in 2012; his purpose was to help as many people as he could, through better cost, access and quality. He started this business from a 400 sq.ft office, with no revenue, one employee and a loan from an investor.

Today he has over 30 employees and is a multi-million dollar revenue company. He has grown into a national company that does business in over 38 states.

  • Why working on yourself is pivotal to success.

  • The timeframe to profitability.
  • The importance of paying your employees first.
  • The importance of learning to observe.
  • The difference between entrepreneur and business owner.

Pejman Ghadimi is a self-made entrepreneur and best selling book author born in 1982 in the middle of a revolution in Iran, raised in France for the majority of his childhood, and eventually migrating to the United States in 1997. Raised by a single mother his entire life with very limited resources, Pejman quickly adapted to the idea of being resourceful. Due to lack of finances and the inability to go to college due to family obligations, Pejman chose to start working from a young age and focused his efforts on banking where he built a name for himself very quickly, climbing the ladder all the way to the VP level in a short 4 years span all without any type of formal education or formalized training.

Fast forward 3 more years and Pejman left banking with a significant amount of experience, an incredible salary history and real estate portfolio to die for which was later leveraged to founding three major businesses: VIP Motoring, Secret Consulting, and Secret Entourage (which collectively have grossed over $40M in revenue annually). Pejman shares a very unique perspective on success and entrepreneurship; one that involves the birth of innovation through the impact made on others as well as the human connections we create daily backed by years of effective and practical leadership skills. Pejman has authored 10 books to date; his most recent best seller Third Circle Theory focusing on a unique roadmap to achieving a higher level of self-awareness leveraging the power of entrepreneurship. While currently being financially independent, Pejman focuses his efforts on teaching others the importance of self awareness, belief, and the power of defining your role and purpose to others through the Secret Entourage Academy as well as to a select few on a one on one basis.

  • What being an entrepreneur demands.
  • How to revamp your prospect list.

  • How familiarity can help you to find a business idea.

Whether you're a new entrepreneur or someone that has been around a while, there is one that is pretty scary to most of us, and thats the idea of scarcity. There is not scarcity of clients or money or opportunities in the world, and shifting your mindset is huge to making a concerted effort to really living and really building a career; its time to remove the "Time Suck" from your life.

In this episode:

  • The signs that its time for a client to go.

Michael Russo started Sticky Quotes while still in college to bring inspiration and motivation to others. Being the optimistic and idealistic philosopher he is, he once thought: "How could I make the world a happier place?"

For starters, he figured he could write inspirational quotes on sticky notes and leave them all over the place. And that’s exactly how Sticky Quotes got its start. The sticky quote note idea was his simple yet effective way to make the world a happier place.

He was sticking these instant happy notes everywhere – all over the Morgan Stanley office where he once interned; in every classroom at Molloy College; and just about anywhere else he's gone since January 2014 when he started this movement.

It wasn't until he paired up with an awesome team of friends and mentors, won a college business plan competition, and printed an insane number of sticky notes in his parents’ kitchen that he had the confidence and the opportunity to start this business.

Now he's 21 years old, on a mission, running his business, and set to graduate from college in May.

In this Episode

  • The power of having a mentor for accountability.
  • Does every entrepreneur need to go to school?
  • Using school as a networking tool.
  • Using the structure that school gives to be a better entrepreneur.
  • Customer acquisition for a new business.
  • Using Fulfillment by Amazon to help to scale your business.
  • Strategies to take your marketing to viral levels.
  • Using competitions to launch your brand.
