Lost Tapes: Jacquie Somerville - Love Your Life

April 18, 2017

BOLD. IRREVERENT. UNUSUAL. FUNNY.

You won’t find another motivator like Jacquie Somerville. Known as the Queen of Courage and Confidence, she’s a born storyteller and a self-titled normalphobe. She may shock you, make you laugh, and will definitely inspire you!

Jacquie draws on a lifetime of challenging and rewarding experiences – a lifetime of pushing the envelope, taking big risks and challenging the status quo. She’s been married a few times, immigrated twice, been fat, slim, broke, rich, and followed her gut to a life of excitement, adventure, passion and purpose.

As a speaker, Jacquie’s quickly becoming one of the world’s most sought after voices for women who are ready to tap into their full potential and live a thrilling life of courage, confidence, and clarity. Her signature keynote Break the Rules for a Kick Ass Life: The Normalphobe’s Guide to Scandalous Success is being touted as THE manifesto for the 21st century woman.

As a mentor, Jacquie counsels her clients to cultivate the courage to live a life true to themselves and not the life that others expect of them. She motivates them to face their fears, embrace uncertainty, and confidently move into a full life of adventure – a life that’s hot, healthy, rich, and free!

As an author, Jacquie’s Little Rule Book series is quickly becoming THE go-to resource for women who are ready to live the life of their dreams. My Fat Little Rule Book is a fun but hugely effective take on diet and exercise; My Scandalous Little Rule Book is a definitive guide to risk-taking and embracing uncertainty. Jacquie’s currently writing My Rich Little Rule Book featuring wealth lessons learned from the rich and poor men she’s known.

No stranger to media coverage, Jacquie has been covered by many notable outlets, including the Vancouver Sun, Toronto Star, and Canada’s Fashion Magazine. Also a television personality, Jacquie has starred in the reality TV program “Golden Gays” and appeared as a guest on Global TV’s national morning program, “The Morning Show.”

Jacquie was born in rural South Africa, immigrated to Canada alone in 1992, and now resides in Rancho Mirage, California. She is passionate about empowering women and changing the way girls are raised. She loves animals, horse riding, dinner parties, chocolate, Scotch, and storytelling. She has always had a penchant for bucking the normal, so it’s no surprise that this fashion-crazy glamour girl has a degree in Agriculture. Now Jacquie is driven to inspire others to stop conforming and to start living out loud!

Lost Tapes: Danielle Sabrina - What Vibes Your Tribe

March 7, 2017

So you’ve turned your vision into reality and started your business. You’ve got great content on your website that’s genuinely helpful to your target audience. You’ve put yourself out there and made yourself accessible. But do you know how to really vibe with your tribe?

You can produce top-quality content ’til the cows come home, but without knowing what vibes your tribe — what makes your ideal clients tick — you and your biz have no buzz. And with no buzz, you don’t get a chance to establish your credibility and authority. With no credibility and authority, your clients will question why they should work with you — and most likely, they’ll choose somebody else.

Trust me — I understand what it’s like to not even know who your ideal client is or where to find them, let alone a whole tribe of them. But I didn’t take no for an answer: I buckled down, dug deep into the world of psychology, and voilá: suddenly, my tribe appeared. Within just 11 days of launching my business, I grew my mailing list to over 500 people, created a mini-course What Vibes Your Tribe, sold out my coaching program, and booked myself solid.

It hasn’t been an easy journey. As a delinquent high school dropout and teen mom of two, I was told that I was lucky to land a job in retail — let alone start my own career. But that wasn’t good enough for me, and I sure as hell didn’t think it was good enough for my children.

I realized I had to work with what I had and believe in myself so strongly that nobody — nothing — could stand in my way and convince me otherwise. Sure enough, by the time I was 22, I had gone from a dropout “lowlife” to living the high life: I was making over six figures as a director in a wealth management firm.

I’ve been accomplishing what people have told me I couldn’t accomplish my whole life.

From that time, I’ve owned boutique retail stores and helped countless people like you launch successful businesses. I’ve also lost everything, and have had to build it up again.

Here’s what I’ve come to learn: when I’m speaking my own personal truth and living a life that is authentic to me, I can manifest just about anything. Stepping out into the scene as a Business Intuitive was one of the hardest things I’ve done in my professional career. But doing it — breaking through my self-doubt; remaining undeterred by the people who don’t take me seriously — is hands-down the best thing I’ve ever done for myself, both personally and financially.

You’ve got the dreams and I’ve got the tools to turn them into reality. Together, your goals will have no choice but to manifest. We will unlock your true potential as you step into your personal power on your path to getting happy, making money, and loving life.

Not only am I passionate about empowering others to follow their truths, but also I know how to teach you what you need to get there — how to vibe your tribe, and how to monetize yourself along the way.

Let’s start a journey together.

The Lost Tapes: Charlie Poznek - The Boomer Business Owner

February 28, 2017

Who is Charlie Poznek?

Funny, I ask myself the same question every day.

What I’ve come up with:

I’m a guy.  Just a guy. I have no rags to riches story to share with you. I didn’t overcome great adversity to be here writing this. I’m just a guy who leads a reasonably good life. The problem? I want to lead an unreasonably spectacular life.

Living an unreasonably spectacular life means I can…

Achieve financial freedom

For me, financial freedom means being able to do what I want (a long list), whenever I want, while living from the income of my investments and never having to worry about generating new income – ever.

Enjoy time flexibility

I believe “time freedom” is a misnomer. I want to do work that allows me the flexibility to create my day the way I want. This includes working out at the gym and going to yoga class during the “work day”.

Get creative

I believe that all of us have a creative itch that could use a good scratching from time to time. When I don’t scratch that itch, I get cranky.

Give back

This is a really important part of this business for me. I firmly believe in helping others who are trying to help themselves. That’s why I started The Boomer Business Owner.

Scrap the suit and tie

Need I say more?

I found it difficult to live a spectacular life while working for someone else. For the better part of 20 years, I worked in the hedge fund industry and wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. I met some great people who remain friends to this day, and I met some really smart people. The problem was that I was helping build someone else’s dream (as the saying goes, if you’re not building your dream, someone else will happily hire you to help build theirs).

In looking at ways to create my spectacular life, I noticed a lot of people (often in their 20’s and 30’s) living the kind of life I wanted to live. A common factor seemed to be they engaged in some form of online commerce by selling a product, service or information.

I began investigating ways I could build an online business while continuing to work in the hedge fund industry.

In a matter of a few years, I transitioned from working for someone else to creating strong online presences for my various business ventures. I quickly learned what a powerful tool an online business can be in creating a spectacular life.

I enjoyed success in the development and sale of two fitness websites, including HealthAndFitnessAdvice.com and PersonalTrainerCoach.com. Another great online success I’ve enjoyed is creating an Ebay store with over 2,000 positive reviews (and not one negative review!)

Don’t get the wrong idea I am not a “tech person.” As a boomer, I know what it’s like to be intimidated by technology. I’m here to tell you that if I can build and run an online business, anyone can do it. Even if sending email is about as complicated as you get on the computer, I can show you how to start and run your own online business with little to no technical experience. I invested a lot of time and money to learn how to be successful in an online business, and I want to help other boomers do the same. The current result of that desire is TheBoomerBusinessOwner.com (and our podcast The Boomer Business Owner with Charlie Poznek).

My Vision for The Boomer Business Owner is to provide:

A vehicle for making a materially positive difference in the world.

Great audio information via our podcast where we interview successful online entrepreneurs.  There is nothing more inspiring than listening to the stories of how people create success online.

My favorite online resources and tools for online entrepreneurs.

One-on-one coaching with me.  Sign up for a free 20 minute consultation to see how I can help you build a spectacular life through online business.

A community for like-minded people working toward the same goal, sharing information and resources, and fostering accountability.

Great video information.  This includes The Boomer Business Owner webinars and videos, and relevant video content from some of my favorite experts and websites.

Great written information, including informative blog posts, articles by guest contributors who are excellent in their respective fields, and up to date news you can use from around the web.

If any of the above resonates with you, let’s talk.  Set up your free 20 minute consultation with me, and let’s start creating a spectacular life.

Thanks!

Charlie

Lost Tapes: Carl David on Depression & Suicide

February 21, 2017

My first foray into writing was in college in the school newspaper when I had a grudge about the disgusting food quality.  The article was pretty funny but scathing so they wouldn't let me sign it.

My next work was an article in the American Art Review in May 1978, about Martha Walter, an American impressionist artist, whose estate we represented. 

In 1981 I authored, "Collecting & Care of Fine Art" published by Crown in New York.  It revealed the truths about the art market and separated them from the hype which was so widespread.  It was a factual expose for which I received significant flack from many colleagues, but someone had to tell the truth and protect the collectors.

My latest book, "Bader Field" has just been released by Nightengale Press.  It is a heart tugging memoir about my father, Samuel David, the legendary art dealer whose life was taken way too early, and how my brother and I had to step into the front lines of the third generation family business to live out his dream, all the while trying to survive emotionally after the devasting loss of our brother only eight years earlier.  The book is a journey of love, forgiveness and acceptance which begins at Bader Field (in Atlantic City), the oldest airfield in the country, the last place I saw my father.

It is my hope that "Bader Field" will help those who have had less than ideal fathers growing up to break the chain of negative influence and become much better fathers themselves when it is their turn to assume the role. 

An even greater aspiration for me is that this book reach deep into the mind of anyone who is contemplating taking their life and show them that they are not alone, that there is always another answer, another way, no matter what.  Those so desperate need to know that they don't just destroy themselves, but everyone around them as well; their family, friends and acquaintances. I pray that my perilous journey through those darkest days will bring light and hope to anyone on that final path, and draw them back.
