It was 2008 and my whole world came crumbling down around me.
There was a mountain of bills and all our properties were being foreclosed on.
I lost everything, including my house and my Dad's house too.
I was in a deep depression thinking that I might have to go back to the job life.
We had no dough and no idea what we were going to do next.
I couldn't stand the idea of ‘them” being right.
See, most of my friends and family thought I was crazy when I quit my job as an electrician and decided to go into business for myself as a real estate agent and investor.
Then a buddy turned me on to iTunes and I heard my first podcast.
It was a whole new world of learning. That's when I realized I knew nothing about business and I began subscribing to podcast after podcast about business, sals, and entrepreneurship.
My new found knowledge gave me a second chance and I launched my real estate business 2.0
That business is still going strong today.
Since then I've become obsessed with being a better business man, entrepreneur, and salesman.
That obsession has made me seek out the best mentors I can find to have them help me take my game to the next level.
Now you can have my mentors in your pocket anytime you need them with the new Podcast Factory App.

This week at “The factory”
“Awaken the Igor within”
In this show we talk about the “breaking point” of Igor's Internet marketing career, his personal motivation rituals and his way of dealing with the fear of failure which never fails him.
“Can anyone really make it”
People tell you to follow your passion and you'll make it. In this week's show you'll find out why that's B.S.
“The dirty little secret about the law of reciprocity”
Marketing people treat the law of reciprocity like it’s marketing gospel.
Heck, some people base their entire business around it.
How about we examine what the biggest proponent… at least the most QUOTED proponent of the law of reciprocity thinks about it, shall we?
“Insight into freelancing”
If you are an aspiring copywriter and looking to break into the biz full-time or a business owner considering hiring a copywriter, this show is for you.
“How NOT to be THAT person”
Today we're going to talk about the social pariah, the person that when you interact with them socially they turn you off.
A couple months ago I was hanging out with my pal Dan Meredith at an event we were both speaking at and got into a conversation about something people are (apparently) paying big money to learn, yet boggles both our minds anyone has to be “taught” it.
And that something is…
How to be “authentic.”
