How to Hire Great Employees? | Ethan King | Part 3 of 3 | Episode #350

Sixteen years ago, Ethan King was a struggling artist by day, taking out trash at a strip club by night. The turning point came when he was carjacked at gunpoint, and he escaped with an epiphany to turn his life around.

Tapping into his passion for collegiate Greek life, Ethan and his then-girlfriend-now-wife launched stuff4GREEKS.com as a school project, with $700 and no outside funding. They bootstrapped it to become what is now a multi-million dollar ecommerce brand for specialty fraternity and sorority gear.

A few years later, they opened Zeus’ Closet – a state-of-the-art retail experience in west midtown Atlanta, where you can personalize your clothes through advanced design, screen printing, and embroidery.

Ethan manages several other businesses and brands, and is the President-Elect of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) Atlanta. He is passionate about running, reading, traveling, and spending time with his family.

The Big 3 – Diet / Lifestyle / Sleep | Elle Russ | Part 3 of 3 | Episode #349

Elle Russ is a writer, health & life coach, and host of the top rated Primal Blueprint Podcast. She is becoming the leading voice of thyroid health in the burgeoning Paleo, Primal, Ancestral Health Movements. Elle is the 5th person in the world to be certified as a Primal Health Coach and she serves on the advisory board of The Primal Heath Coach Program created by Mark Sisson.  Originally from downtown Chicago, Elle lives and plays in Malibu, CA. You can learn more about her at elleruss.com Elle wrote The Paleo Thyroid Solution after consulting with over two dozen endocrinologists, internal medicine specialists, and general practice MDs…but her thyroid condition was only getting worse – and nothing from doctors resembled a solution, or even hope.

Exasperated and desperate, Elle took control of her own health and resolved two severe bouts of hypothyroidism on her own – including an acute Reverse T3 problem. Through a devoted paleo/primal lifestyle, intensive personal experimentation, and a radically modified approach to thyroid hormone replacement therapy…Elle went from fat, foggy, and fatigued – to fit, focused, and full of life!

INFO for The Paleo Thyroid SolutionElle’s new book, The Paleo Thyroid Solution dispels outdated, conventional thyroid wisdom still practiced by uninformed doctors, and provides the in-depth guidance necessary to solve hypothyroidism, achieve vibrant health, and optimize thyroid fat-burning hormone metabolism. Over 200 million people worldwide and over 25 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease, but 60% are undiagnosed and unaware of their condition. Undiagnosed or mistreated hypothyroidism can put people at risk for serious conditions, such as: depression, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, gynecological issues (infertility/miscarriages/fibroids/PCOS etc.), hormonal imbalances, adrenal fatigue, anemia, and other diseases. The Paleo Thyroid Solution provides the only lifestyle and weight loss plan specifically targeted for maximizing thyroid hormone metabolism in harmony with paleo/primal/ancestral health principles.    What’s The Paleo Thyroid Solution All About? In The Paleo Thyroid Solution, you will learn: ·      Paleo protocols for naturally preventing and reversing low thyroid function ·      The correct blood tests to diagnose hypothyroidism and how to interpret results ·      How to optimally treat hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement  ·      How to diagnose and treat Reverse T3 issues (including T3-only treatment) ·      How to find a good doctor or help educate your current doctor ·      How to lose the insidious fat and weight gained from hypothyroidism ·      An MD’s perspective on why and how doctors are uninformed and still practicing outdated thyroid protocols (in-depth commentary from integrative physician Dr. Gary E. Foresman, MD)

Facts about Paleo health in general that are interesting:

-Excess protein turns into glucose…most people don’t know this and they think Paleo/Primal is a high protein diet

-The concept and experience of “Caloric Efficiency”

-People don’t usually understand why any animals would be given antobiotics in the first place and why “no antibiotics” would even be on a food label – I can explain why

 

Gift/Promotion:

I am happy to giveaway 3 free books that will include a primal kitchen goodies package each. Perhaps you can do an Instagram giveaway such as:  “Follow @_elleruss with the hashtag #PeakPaleoThyroid and we will choose 3 winners who will get a copy of The Paleo Thyroid Solution along with a Primal Kitchen Goodies Package!”

Sharing Belief (#83)

Having people in our lives who share their belief in us is incredibly important; it’s the underpinning of great leadership, good parenting and many religious foundations. Motivational guru, Tony Robbins’ entire career and platform is based on helping others believe they can do more than they thought possible.

That said, belief must also be coupled with reality; reality of what it will take to achieve the desired outcome. One without the other will likely lead to failure, disappointment and even unreached potential.

For example, I can tell my daughter that I believe she can get into Harvard or become an Olympian, but that should be accompanied by an explanation of what that will require in terms of passion, skills, effort, commitment and time. She must know that, if she really wants something, no one else can or should do the work for her.

Belief grounded in reality is critical. It’s also something I think many micro-managers and “helicopter” parents get very wrong.  Telling someone that you believe in them and then doing the work for them at the first sign of struggle doesn’t allow them to gain the experience of learning from their own mistakes, which is an essential element of success.

Recently, I had the opportunity to hear John DiJulius, a best-selling author and one of the top customer service gurus in the world, give a keynote speech. Like many successful people and entrepreneurs, John shared that he was diagnosed with ADD and struggled in school when he was younger. Fortunately, he had wonderful parents who told him how much they believed in him.

John’s experience came full-circle with his own son. At the age of 10, John brought his son to a national wrestling tournament as he had beaten everyone else in his age group in the state of Ohio. In the double elimination event, John’s son lost his first match 15-0 to the top ranked boy. The match even had to be stopped several times because John’s son was crying. He lost the second match in 15 seconds. It wasn’t pretty.

On the flight home, John’s son asked about returning the next year to compete. John told him that, if he was serious about doing so, it would require a higher level of training and dedication than he’d ever committed to before, all of which he outlined in detail. John was also clear that, while he believed in him, he wasn’t going to hold him accountable for doing the work. His son had to want it for himself.

John admitted that he honestly did not think his son’s zeal for competing the following year would endure. But, to his surprise, his son fastidiously followed his training regimen. When they returned the next year, his son not only won his first six matches, he also beat the same kid who he’d lost to in the finals the prior year and won a national championship.

When John asked his son how he mustered the will to do what he had done, his reaction was simply “because you told me I could.” In relaying the story, John expressed guilt that he had doubted his son’s ability and dedication to compete at that level; he just thought he was giving him a good pep talk. Had he not conveyed his belief in his son, the outcome of that national championship may have been different.

Let’s all remember the power of inspiring others to do more without actually doing it for them. Be there to root them on and then stay out of their way as they learn to believe in themselves.

If you want to see John’s story for yourself, you can watch it here (minute 6 is where he wins).

Quote of the Week

“Sometimes you have to believe in the belief others have in you until your belief kicks in.”

John DiJulius
