What is your typical day, and how do you make it productive?
I have two kids and my wife. Everything has a place in the day, on a normal day. I do sports every day for an hour. I also incorporate the sauna and ice bath. Each area of life has a place every day.
How do you bring ideas to life?
I see the end result first. I visualize what I want to build before it’s built. Then, I quickly take action.
What’s one trend that excites you?
Artificial intelligence (AI). We’re using artificial intelligence in our app so we can personalize everything. This is really crazy stuff. It’s really interesting for me at the moment because it makes the Reach Goals app better in so many ways.
What is one habit that helps you be productive?
Sport, sauna, and ice bath. This is what I can recommend to everybody who wants to become a high performer or really successful. The first 10 years in business I worked, I was a workaholic and my health was really poor. I needed to get my health back and I found that the sport, sauna, and ice bath combination gives you high focus.
What advice would you give your younger self?
Set goals. Just believe. And act. Just believe that it’s already happened. Have no doubt. Just go for it. Focus on your goals and go!
Tell us something you believe almost nobody agrees with you on?
Life is simple. It’s not so complicated. Just have goals, believe, follow your intuition, and do what you love. Excitement is one of the highest frequencies in the universe, it’s even higher than love. So every day, be excited about what you’re doing.
What is the one thing you repeatedly do and recommend everyone else do?
Being able to visualize what I want before I have it and have incredible belief in achieving it.
When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, what do you do?
I never feel overwhelmed of unfocused because I truly believe in what I am doing and that I am being guided. Things that help me stay physically sharp are incorporating sport, sauna, and ice bath everyday.
What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business or advance in your career?
One strategy that has helped grow my businesses is Facebook ads. We deploy a multi-channel strategy. We also have a lot of experience with influencers and affiliates.
What is one failure in your career, how did you overcome it, and what lessons did you take away from it?
First of all, I’ve made many mistakes. But through each mistake, I’ve come back ten times better. One of my mistakes was trusting people blindly, but during that time, I was also greedy. Therefore, I attracted that negativity. Now, I have learned to attract only good people that want to help me grow.
What is one business idea you’re willing to give away to our readers?
It’s not about any one business idea. Whatever your idea is, set goals, and take action.
What is one piece of software that helps you be productive? How do you use it?
I’ll mention again the benefits of artificial intelligence (AI). AI allows for the personalization of the experience a user gets from the Reach Goals app. It makes that app better. The more people can engage with the app in a fun and interactive way, the better chance of reaching their goals.
Do you have a favorite book or podcast you’ve gotten a ton of value from and why?
I have read and can recommend many books. At the moment, I am writing my own book called “How Goals Saved My Life”, which will be published soon. This book details my life and how the act of goal-setting allowed me to bring myself out of darkness and to success.
What’s a movie or series you recently enjoyed and why?
“Think and Grow Rich” the documentary promotes the idea of setting clear and specific goals. The documentary reinforces the importance of defining what you want to achieve and then taking deliberate steps toward those goals. That what our App is doing as well.
