The Roadmap to Success, With Bew White

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on April 27, 2022

Bew White’s story is not the story of a man’s straight-line success of going from rags to riches. As one of Bew’s friends observed, “Bew started life on third base.”

Indeed, he did.

Knowing more than most about his own ancestors, Bew White is descended from an aristocracy of sorts. Even so, his story is a zigzag. If he started on third, mistakes and misfortunes would send him back to second and first bases.

Undaunted, he kept swinging and pursuing his own version of the American Dream.

Bew joins Adam to share his story and discuss:

  • What a roadmap to success is and how you create your own
  • Advice would to those just starting out in their career
  • What it takes to live a successful life
  • And much more.

Tune in and listen to one man’s journey up the ladder of success. You may just hear your own story in there somewhere.

Use Willpower and a Higher Power to Create the Business of Your Dreams, With Tonyah Dee

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on April 20, 2022

Tonyah Dee was 40 years old, with an 18- month-old son, when she went through a two-year separation that eventually led to a divorce. A couple years later, she was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and around the same time discovered that her ex-therapist was working with her ex-husband out of a book titled, The Productive Narcissist. This piqued her curiosity, which led her to read several books on the subject of anxiety and narcissism. A common theme among many of them was to learn to practice meditation and prayer.

This struck a chord with Tonyah, and she took her first step down a very beneficial new path. She woke early in the morning to meditate, often singing worship songs, meditating, reading and contemplating scripture and praying. Eventually, a habit of daily seeking The Trinity was established. Her faith and trust in God became unshakable.

Then during her meditation time one morning, she heard the Holy Spirit direct her to make meditation music from the Bible. She responded by saying, “Who, me? I know nothing about making music.” She heard the same message for about a year.

Despite having no formal music background, she finally said yes to the persistent voice of the Spirit of God. Soon she was writing down songs and singing them during her morning meditation.

Conflict and stress were still a part of her life, but peace and compassion began to gradually overcome her situation. Grace flowed in and her company, YahLight, was born.

Along with making music, Tonyah teaches YahLight’s daily practices. She still tries to wake up every morning and start her day with stillness, singing, meditation, contemplation, reading scripture, and prayer. Arguably, these practices are what have helped her rise above all of her life’s challenges, including over 18 years of living (and thriving!) as a single mom.

Join Tonyah and Adam to discover:

  • How authenticity is developed through spiritual disciplines
  • We have inner powers that lead us to inner strength
  • How spiritual disciplines are effective for business
  • Why meditation is so popular and why is it so hard to do
  • What role a higher power has in helping us to create a business of our dreams
  • And much more!

Are you ready to stop the struggle and accept the grace? Tune in.

5 Foundational Pillars for a Successful Entrepreneur Lifestyle, With Bob Schlegel

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on April 13, 2022

Being an entrepreneur isn’t a job. It’s a lifestyle built around one’s businesses.

Beyond the nuts and bolts of starting, growing, and running a business, it’s important to first build a foundation to ensure a meaningful entrepreneurial career. This means that budding entrepreneurs must assess their capacity for persistence, lifelong learning, entrepreneurial drive, and passion for pursing business opportunities.

Also added to those is the quality of their partnerships, because in business as in life, they are vitally important.  

Seasoned entrepreneur Bob Schlegel speaks from more than four decades of experience to instruct a new generation of aspiring business leaders on what factors to consider before they make their first sale or seal their first deal. His five foundational pillars will determine not only the level of success, but also the quality of life they can achieve.

Why Courage May be the Most Critical Sales Quality We Need, With Dr. Nadia Brown

Filed in Podcasts, Previous Episodes on April 7, 2022

When you think of sales, have you ever felt:

  • You have to be sleazy or inauthentic in sales in order to grow your business and take it to the next level.
  • The gift of charm or the use of manipulative sales techniques are the only ways to get ahead in your business.
  • You can’t show up as yourself in sales calls or else you won’t convert.

You know deep inside you should start having more sales conversations or you desire to have the ability to enroll more of the right clients from your existing pipeline. And yet, there’s something that is holding you back.

Many times, the fear of rejection combined with a lack of sales skill can hinder your ability to have the courageous conversations that convert.

People often admit that they struggle with going into sales conversations feeling like they have to defend the value of their services and convince prospects to work with them.

What comes up before the sales conversation will come out as you’re talking to prospects, from your willingness to connect initially all the way to your follow-through after the call.

When you go in feeling like you need to convince someone to work with you, you’re naturally starting the conversation off-balance, undermining your confidence and the value you can provide.

Dr. Nadia Brown gets it. She used to feel the same way until she learned how to show up fully and powerfully to sales conversations with prospects and guide them to the buying decision that is best for them.

Dr. Brown joins Adam to share why courage may be the most critical sales skill you need.


  • How you overcome the fear of selling;
  • How to find your motivation and find your purpose;
  • How to show up in the sales conversation;
  • And much more.

Fear not my friend, sales no longer has to be scary.
