It is true that when a door closes, a window opens. For Nikki Rausch, a window of opportunity opened after she got fired from a sales position, which helped propel her to create her own selling system that has since helped hundreds of clients. In this episode, Nikki joins Mitch Russo to share with us the details of her story—from selling leather belts to becoming the Sales Maven that she is now—as well as the sales process that put her to where she is. Along with that, she imparts some great sales strategy and advice that can help even those who may not identify as salespeople become good at doing this very important job in business. What is more, Nikki then taps into the client’s language and the kind of mindset you need to have when it comes to sales.

For most families, K-12 education is a fairly significant expense of about six figures, and for many, it’s even more. Mitch Russo’s guest, Grant Aldrich, graduated with an overwhelming level of debt, which almost crushed him. Even more stressful for him was the job-hunting process, knowing the amount he had to pay back. It became such a burden after he started his first job that he decided to change the way students embark on their college education and has revolutionized the entire process using technology and some great systems for planning and production. Hear all about his incredible story and his mission to make college education accessible and affordable for everyone.
You don’t need to be a visionary all the time to succeed. Sometimes, you just have to read the instruction manual and follow the steps. Casey Stubbs did just that and is now reaping the benefits of his seven-figure business in stocks trading. Casey started as a broke dad of nine, who quit his profitable soap business in favor of construction and carpet cleaning just when things didn’t exactly pan out for both in 2008. With his old computer, he tried his hand out on website advertising and went on his way to the top since then. Casey now runs a thriving business at Trading Strategy Guides, helping traders and trading educators up their game by providing the best free trading education and education strategies. He aims to reach $20 million in revenue – a story that he shares to people through his podcast. Listen in as he tells his story to Mitch Russo on the show.
It is one thing to start a business at 25; it is another to turn a family business around from being deeply in debt and on the brink of failure to profitability at the same age. This episode’s guest is just as legendary as achieving this feat at such a young age. Mitch Russo interviews none other than the legendary entrepreneur, Gino Wickman, the creator of Entrepreneurial Leap and the author of the best-selling book, Traction. Here, Gino shares with us the story of his life and the mission he has set to do. With his book of the same name, Entrepreneurial Leap, he guides those who are undecided about becoming entrepreneurs to determine whether they have what it takes to be one. He takes us deeper into that and provides some great tips and insights on how to harness the entrepreneur that is in you. Save yourself from years of hell in your entrepreneurial endeavors. Learn when and how to take that entrepreneurial leap, minus the crashing and burning, in this great conversation.
