If you’re interested, then listen to this episode with our guest, Chris Naugle, America’s number 1 Money Mentor, to help us take back control of our money and teach you the steps into the secrets of the wealthy and generate more money.

Here’s what you missed:

Against all odds

  • “…why can’t I, if I just do what everybody else is unwilling to do.” (02:55)
  • “all that practice against all odds and everybody telling me I couldn’t do it. I ended up becoming a pro snowboarder and that was kind of my upbringing.” (03:43)
  • “And I said, you know what, it’s the best thing ever. It’s all I knew. It didn’t matter that other people had more, this is what I had and we made the best of it.” (04:03)

How do I not fail?

  • “…a lot of people get into business ‘cause they want to be super-wealthy to me back then, business was just the means for me not to trade hours for dollars.” (05:24)
  • “So this was my first crash course into realizing how difficult life can be sometimes” (05:50)
  • “…Chris is a snowboarder who fails at this new venture, which it very well could have. I just lose mom’s house. That was the point where I really started focusing on the money side. How do I not fail? And it was a lot more than just, you know, The dream of chasing big dollars.” (06:51)
  • ” I never lost mom’s house. That business was a success and all the way up to the early two-thousands, I faced my first recession.” (07:13)

Start putting the twigs together

  • “… entrepreneurs have something about them that makes them more successful in the financial world.” (08:07)

  • ” Sometimes timing is everything in my life I thought was going this direction. And then all of a sudden, when the great recession hit, I was going that direction.” (09:23)
  • “…they say that a lot of money is made obviously in the downturns” (11:27)

Why do I keep failing?

  • “…you never know it when you’re doing it… But then I made a massive mistake or just circumstances hit me the wrong way in 2014. And, uh, I took my 37th deal to the bank and the bank said you don’t fit in our little square box called debts income.” (12:25)
  • “…but banks have a certain number of, of mortgages you can do, or your debt to income ratio calculation. And I hit that wall, even though I was making good money as an advisor… because you don’t fit in the box, now they open up everything and they, they froze my lines of credit.” (12:49)
  • ” So you can see like my journey, you know, from early years, right on straight through, it’s just been this crazy rollercoaster ride. Of just ups and downs, where I had money, I lost it all. You know, I had things, I lost them all.” (13:46)

Be around the campfire

  • “And it made me question everything. Made me question everything I learned that I dove in and I started there’s a lot more to it, but I started really following multi-millionaires and billionaires…but I knew the answer to what I needed lied in these people’s minds and the only way…the only way I was going to get that is to be there with them, I call it be around the campfire.” (16:15)
