Description:

Episode 110: Laura Gassner Otting's definition of success changed amidst her career that included a Presidential appointment and exiting her successful executive search firm.

Guest Biography

Laura Gassner Otting helps people get “unstuck” — and achieve extraordinary results.

Through Limitless Possibility, Laura collaborates with change agents, entrepreneurs, investors, leaders, and donors to push past the doubt and indecision that consign great ideas to limbo. She delivers strategic thinking, well-honed wisdom, and catalytic perspective informed by decades of navigating change across the start-up, nonprofit, political, and philanthropic landscapes.

Laura’s 25-year resume is defined by her entrepreneurial edge. She served as a Presidential Appointee in Bill Clinton’s White House, helping shape AmeriCorps; left a leadership role at respected nonprofit search firm, Isaacson, Miller, to expand the startup ExecSearches.com; and founded and ran the Nonprofit Professionals Advisory Group, which partnered with the full gamut of mission driven nonprofit executives, from start-up dreamers to scaling social entrepreneurs to global philanthropists. She is the author of Mission-Driven, a book for those moving from profit to purpose, and the upcoming Limitless: How to Ignore Everybody, Carve Your Own Path, and Live Your Best Life (April 2019).

Through her own commitment to give back, Laura has helped build a local Montessori school, co-founded a women’s philanthropic initiative, advised a start-up national women’s PAC, grew a citizen-leadership development program, and completed three charity-inspired marathons—projects emblematic of her passions and values. She’s turned on by the audacity of The Big Idea and that larger-than-life goal you just can’t seem to shake. She’s an instigator, a motivator, and a provocateur, and she’s never met a revolution she didn’t like.

40. 079: Farming and Grammy Awards with George Kahumoku, Jr.
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 45.91Mb)

Description:

Four-time Grammy award-winning musician talks about how being an entrepreneur and living with ancient Hawaiian values brings him success.

Guest Biography

There’s a reason he’s been called Hawaii’s Renaissance man: George Kahumoku Jr. is a multiple Grammy Award & Na Hoku Hanohano Award winning master slack key guitarist, songwriter, world-traveling performer, high school teacher, artist and sculptor, story-teller and writer, farmer and entrepreneur. He hosts a weekly show on Maui called George Kahumoku Jr’s Slack Key Show: Masters of Hawaiian Music.

George is currently living on Maui with his wife, Nancy, at a beautiful upland farm on the pristine north side of the West Maui Mountains. He recently retired from 40 years of teaching at risk kids, art, ceramics, guitar & ukulele at private and public schools over the years including the historic Lahainaluna High School and directing the inception of the Institute of Hawaiian Music at UH Maui College.

Farming being in his blood, George now spends quality time maintaining his 3-acre farm growing fruit and vegetables, dry-land taro (for his famous home-made poi) and tending his goats, chickens, ducks, and miniature horses. True to his Hawaiian heritage, wherever he goes George always brings bundles of fresh produce to share with friends and students.

“George Kahumoku, Jr. is one of the great Hawaiian slack key guitarists, as well as a wonderful composer, songwriter, song interpreter, vocalist, and storyteller.”  – George Winston

“Mr. Kahumoku assumed a natural role as the evening’s host, peppering the show with charming, picaresque stories (“I grew up with 26 cousins in the same household,” went the setup to one of these), and speaking with ease about the origins of the songs. Before singing “I’ll Remember You,” a beloved Hawaiian standard, he recalled his debt to its songwriter, who gave him his first break at age 11. At every turn he got a richly chiming tone from his acoustic guitar and favored a light, easeful flow of rhythm.” – Nate Chinen, New York Times

47. 072: The Good and Bad of Money From Retired FBI Agent Jerri Williams
http://www.inspiredmoney.fm/07... download (audio/mpeg, 48.87Mb)

Description:

Retired FBI special agent, Jerri Williams talks money and her unique perspectives gained from a career in economic fraud investigations where she studied the schemes con-artists and corrupt corporate and public officials used to steal other people’s money.

Guest Biography

Jerri Williams has always been a storyteller and, after serving 26 years as a special agent in the FBI, she has plenty of stories to tell. During most of her Bureau career she worked major economic fraud investigations and was amazed at the schemes con-artist and corrupt corporate and public officials would devise to steal other people’s money. She has also had the opportunity to work bank robberies and drug investigations. The one thing she knows for sure is, “With a gun, you can steal hundreds. With a pen, you can steal millions.”

During her FBI career, Jerri specialized in cases targeting major economic crime and corruption. Her investigation of a $350 million Ponzi scheme perpetrated against unsuspecting nonprofit organizations, high profiled philanthropists and beneficiary donors, resulted in a 12-year prison sentence and multiple forfeitures. The international advance fee scam case she conducted resulted in a 14-year prison sentence and the forfeiture of the subject’s residence. And her major investigation of business to business telemarketing fraud, which included a long-term undercover operation, resulted in 16 search warrants, 25 convictions, and several multi-year prison terms. Jerri received numerous awards throughout her career, including four United States Attorney Awards for Distinguished Service. Being interviewed and appearing on CNBC’s American Greed in the episode—Confessions of a Con Man—was a highlight of Jerri’s career.

Toward the end of her federal law enforcement career, Jerri was appointed as the spokesperson for the Philadelphia Division of the FBI, taking on the responsibility of educating and informing the media and public about the Bureau. Post-FBI retirement, Jerri served for seven years as the spokesperson and Director of Media Relations for SEPTA, Philadelphia’s public transportation provider. Both positions often placed her in the spotlight in front of local and national news media.

Jerri is using her prior professional experiences with scams and schemers to write crime fiction inspired by actual true crime FBI cases. Her novels – Pay To Play and Greedy Givers – a series about a female FBI agent assigned to a Philadelphia Corruption Squad, are available at Amazon.com as e-books, trade paperbacks, and audiobook.

Jerri also produces and hosts FBI Retired Case File Review, a true crime podcast where she interviews retired FBI agents about their high-profile cases and careers, corrects clichés and misconceptions about the FBI in books, TV, and movies, and recommends crime fiction. The podcast will soon surpassed two million downloads, has listeners from around the world, and is regularly listed on iTunes’ History Top Charts. FBI Retired Case File Review can be accessed on her website, Apple Podcast, Google Podcast, Spotify, and other popular podcast apps.

Track Your Spending as a First Step
Peter Polson, CEO of Tiller Money, wants you to better manage your money by tracking and budgeting with automated spreadsheets. He says that most people know their income but have a harder time explaining exactly where their money is spent every month.  When you start tracking your spending, you become more aware of where you're money is going and based on this feedback, you're likely to change your spending habits and better align spending with your values. Today's technology makes it so easy to spend with a click, a swipe, or tap, it's no wonder people have no idea where they're spending. Tracking your expenses is the first step to gaining control over your personal finances.

Chasing Your Passion Sometimes Requires Living Frugally Professional wrestler Colt Cabana loved wrestling from an early age and knew that's what he wanted to do when he grew up. He romanticized the money mindset of the circus folk wrestlers who came from the carnival and independent wrestlers of the 1970s who had to budget wisely based on their meager earnings. Early in his career, he took pride in living on just $3 a day, when necessary. Even today, now that he has found success, he lives and works knowing the importance of saving by spending less than what he earns.

Form Good Money Habits Bola Sokunbi of Clever Girl Finance saved her first $100,000 in 3.5 years after college by committing to a high savings rate and side hustles to generated extra income. She says, "If you have money coming in, you have the opportunity to save." A lot of people think that when money is coming in but there's only a couple dollars left over, it's not worth the effort to save. Bola says even if you have just 50 cents extra, it's worth saving because it's critical to start learning the habit and consistency of saving early. She recalls driving 20 minutes to the bank to deposit $1! Building good money habits early, even when you are only earning a little, will benefit you when you're making a higher income and able to save more.

Start Meaningful Conversations to Build Connections for Better Sales Ryan Serhant, as seen on Bravo's popular series “Million Dollar Listing New York,” is one of the most successful real estate brokers in the world with at team that sold nearly $1 billion in real estate last year. Ryan says we are all in sales whether you're selling a product or service, yourself, or trying to convince your boss why you deserve a promotion. The trouble is that no one likes to be sold yet many sales people make the mistake of identifying a prospect and immediately trying to sell something. Instead, your focus should be on starting conversations with the intent to build connections. Since you only have a few seconds to make a first impression, start with a solid introduction, smile, compliment, and try to find something that you have in common. Another mistake that salespeople make is talking too much. Everybody loves to hear themselves talk so ask questions. Once a conversation is started, eventually get them to talk about what you do for a living and how that can benefit them. From there, opportunities can open up.

Don't Fear Investing, Just Start Danielle Town is a New York Times bestselling author and Investing Practice expert who started out desperately afraid of numbers and stock markets, until she took her head out of the sand and discovered that, with a little knowledge and practice, her weaknesses were actually strengths. Starting to invest can be hard but don't fall victim to inertia. Remember the saying, "An object at rest tends to stay at rest?" Kick start your investing by reading business news. Skip the things that seem boring or things you don't understand. Make it a point to notice things around you to see if the products and services that you enjoy are produced by publicly traded companies. By making it personal, you'll quickly start seeing things differently. For example, if you're an iPhone user, start reading about Apple to better understand what is driving earnings and what new product launches are coming.

http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 49.05Mb)

Description:

Former top-selling corporate exec who quit her six-figure sales job in front of 10,000 people, Nicole Walters took what she knew and built a million-dollar business in one short year.

Guest Biography

By age 28, Nicole Walters was a highly-paid executive at a Fortune 500 company, managing multi-billion dollar accounts. But something wasn’t right. “My job was feeding my family, but not my soul,” she says. So in YRTK (you have a right to know), Nicole quit her corporate job to focus on opening her own private business and product development consulting firm, The Monetized Life. As her audience ramped up, so did her revenue—she made $11,000 in the first three weeks of working with small business clients full time. Now, when she’s not hanging out with her husband and their three foster kids, she shares her secrets to earning “passive income” with other entrepreneurs through her wildly popular online course, 1K1Day. “I teach people how to add commas to their bank accounts,” says Nicole. “They learn that they don’t have to trade time for money.”

Why Nicole left her 9 to 5 to live in her purpose. How she's built her business and helps entrepreneurs to build theirs. The importance of creating and developing a "customer map" for your business.

92. 027: Happily Retired in Their 40s by Spending Less | Tim and Amy Rutherford
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 51.00Mb)

Description:

Financially independent couple, Tim and Amy Rutherford tell us how they retired in their 40s by spending less and have found happiness.

Guest Biography

Tim and Amy met in colorful Colorado in 2016. Although they tracked every penny spent, in retrospect, they were "mindless spenders" because they weren't concerned about the big dollars flowing out of their bank account. They felt like their financial health was good because they weren't in debt (other than a mortgage) and were maxing out their 401ks while adding to savings and investment accounts at a steady pace. Even so, they spent an average of $115,000 per year for many years. This number didn't include income taxes, savings or payments to their mortgage principal. Their initial retirement analysis assumed spending of $120,000 a year.

They had an epiphany in 2014. Spending less meant Tim and Amy didn’t have to work as long. Cutting back made them happier and kept moving up their target retirement date. By living with less, they could say goodbye to their stressful careers in 2015.

From the beginning of our relationship, Tim and Amy treasured experiences over things. As they continue to downsize, their new life is filled with fun, frugal (or free!), fulfilling activities that bring them happiness. They spend less time acquiring, maintaining, upgrading, insuring, and thinking about material things. While it may be cliché, less truly is more. In 2016, they spent $43,000. That year, they took 3 international vacations and traveled (by plane) around the US several times. Tim had back surgery that year which meant a $6,000 deductible. So, $43,000 isn’t lean or mean. There’s fat in there, too. They continue to seek and find fun and creative ways to further reduce their spending.

Tim and Amy are re-engineering their new lives with purpose. Their path includes more travel and embracing a healthier lifestyle. These days, they are active volunteers, house sitters, and travelers.

They blog at www.GoWithLess.com, writing about how they retired in their 40s and how they plan to stay there.

Show notes: http://www.inspiredmoney.fm/027

In this episode, you will learn:

How spending less can impact your retirement plan in a big way. You should never worry about being bored in retirement. Resources for finding low cost or even free activities wherever you live.

94. 025: Increasing Sales by Answering Customers' Questions | Marcus Sheridan
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 46.97Mb)

Description:

Inbound marketing saved Marcus Sheridan's business, his family's finances, and brought him to the place where he is today -- a successful business owner, keynote speaker, and author. We dig into the mindset it takes to be successful in marketing/sales and more.

Guest Biography

Called a “web marketing guru” by the New York Times, the Story of how Marcus Sheridan was able to save his swimming pool company, River Pools, from the economic crash of 2008 has been featured in multiple books, publications, and stories around the world—and is also the inspiration for his newest book, “They Ask, You Answer,” which was dubbed the #1 marketing book to read in 2017 by Mashable.
 
Known for his incredibly unique ability to engage live audiences, Sheridan has become a highly sought after global speaker and consultant in the digital sales and marketing space, working with hundreds of business and brands alike to become the most trusted voice of their industry while navigating the ultra-fast rate of change occurring within consumers and buyers today.
 
No one ever says, “When I grow up, I want to be a pool guy.”
 
Neither did Marcus Sheridan when he was a youth being raised in the small town of Callao, Virginia.
 
But that’s exactly what he was for 10 years of his life—a decade that would go on to become the foundation of his incredible “They Ask, You Answer” story, one where his swimming pool company would go from near bankruptcy to one of the most successful pool builders in the entire country while being featured in multiple best-selling books, the New York Times, and many other publications.
 
For Sheridan though, one can trace his success as a business and communications thought-leader today back to his time spent as a missionary for his church, when he lived in Chile for two years from 1997-1999. During this time there, Sheridan, who had never spoken Spanish and up to that point had a fear of public speaking, was constantly put in positions to speak to and teach large audiences.
 
Eventually, Sheridan’s fear for public speaking would turn into a strength. By the end of his mission, he realized he had a knack for explaining complex subjects in a way audiences could easily understand and relate to them.
 
Furthermore, he could see that audiences seemed to resonate with his unique, interactive speaking style, something he would end up using full time as a professional speaker 15 years later.
 
After his mission, Sheridan married his high school sweetheart, Nikki, and finished his degree at West Virginia University. While looking for his first post-college job, Sheridan was approached by two close friends from home who had just started a swimming pool company—River Pools and Spas. Upon asking him to be the first employee of their fledgling company, Sheridan responded:
 
“Sure, at least until I find my ‘real’ job.”
 
The rest, as they say, is history. Sheridan’s two friends invited him to join them as owners 6 months later, and for the next decade, he would help River Pools and Spas find the ultimate success it did.
 
With such success, Sheridan started his personal blog, The Sales Lion in 2009. By focusing on an array of sales, marketing, and personal development issues—Sheridan developed a large following and eventually, the site was recognized as one of the top 10 Social Media sites on the web.
 
The momentum with The Sales Lion naturally led to speaking and business opportunities for Sheridan, where today, he and his team are internationally known for keynotes, workshops, sales/marketing coaching, and HubSpot training.
 
But outside of all this, the thing that means most to Sheridan remains the marriage he has to his wife (Nikki) of 15 years and their 4 children: Danielle, JT, Larsen, and Casey. In fact, if you happen to run into Marcus at a conference or event, there is a very good chance one of these 5 is right there with him.

Description:

Phil White's success goes beyond being a partner at the largest law firm in the world. His inspirational story is one from rags to riches, one about a student athlete, one about an incredible transformation from poor student to making straight A's.

Guest Biography

Phil White, who serves as the global co-leader of Dentons' Transportation and Infrastructure practice, is recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on the construction and engineering sector and particularly in construction disputes. His skill was recognized most recently in 2016 when he was designated "Lawyer of the Year in Construction Litigation" by Best Lawyers. He has been listed in Best Lawyers each year since 2006, and was appointed several times to International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) arbitration panels in disputes involving hundreds of millions US dollars.

Phil has tried, mediated and settled cases on behalf of clients around the globe through hundreds of days of hearings in many forums, including the ICC, the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA), the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA) and courts in the United States. These matters include many trials of cases to award or judgment, with the total amount in dispute now running well into the billions of US dollars. Phil has handled disputes arising from a broad range of projects, from 30 power plants in the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa to petroleum facilities in Equatorial Guinea, to rail in New Jersey, to roads, sewers and utilities in Qatar. His approach to disputes is to put the issues in a pragmatic commercial context, while pressing his client's interests tenaciously.

Garrett Marrero and Melanie Oxley poured determination and long hours into building Maui Brewing Company and were named 2017's Small Business Association's Small Business Persons of the Year.

Guest Biography

Garrett Marrero is Co-founder & CEO of Maui Brewing Co. Garrett makes sure to drink the local beer everywhere he travels. For him, great beer reveals elements of the personality of a place and, hopefully, reflects a vibrant part of the local economy. It’s also the reason why, on his first visit to Maui in 2003, Marrero refused to accept the fact that Maui’s “local” beer was actually made on the U.S. mainland and shipped to the island. An investment consultant with bachelor’s degrees in economics and international relations, and an associate’s degree in finance, he recognized an opportunity to create a niche product in an untapped market. A beach kid from San Diego, he also saw in Maui a chance to live near some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Garrett and his wife Melanie opened Maui Brewing Co. in January 2005 with a seven-barrel brewpub and 30 employees in the West Maui community of Kahana. Over a decade later, Maui Brewing is Hawai‘i’s largest craft brewer and one of its fastest-growing companies, employing more than 400 people, producing 53,000 barrels a year, and retailing its beers in 23 states and 10 countries.

102. 017: Setting Small Goals to Achieve the Extraordinary | Colin O'Brady

Description:

Two-time world record holder, Colin O’Brady embodies what it means to overcome obstacles, test limits, dream big, set goals, and never give up. Apply his lessons to your money and anything you do.

Guest Biography

A two-time world record holder, Colin O'Brady has spent the last two decades as an elite endurance athlete.

Raised in Portland, Oregon Colin spent his childhood exploring the mountains of the Pacific Northwest and cultivated a passion for adventure in the outdoors. Colin was a nationally ranked swimmer and youth soccer star. He was recruited to swim at the collegiate varsity level for Yale University where he graduated with a Bachelors in Economics in 2006.

Before beginning what he thought would be a lifelong career in finance, Colin left to explore the world on a backpacking trip. While in Thailand, Colin suffered a tragic accident and was severely burned in a fire. His injuries covered nearly 25% of his body, primarily damaging his legs and feet.

Doctors warned him he might never walk again normally, but Colin was determined to beat the odds. He focused not only on walking again, but set himself a goal: to complete his first triathlon following his recovery. This focus drove his recovery and rehab. A mere 18-months after his accident while working as a commodities trader in Chicago, Colin amazed the racing world when he not only completed his first triathlon, but he placed first overall amateur at the 2009 Chicago Triathlon.

Over the past six years, Colin has raced as a professional triathlete in 25 countries on six continents representing the United States in international triathlon competitions.

With a passion for pushing his body and exploring persevered limits, Colin took on an extraordinary mission. On May 27, 2016 with his project coined BEYOND 7/2, Colin conquered the speed records for the Explorers Grand Slam and Seven Summits; a global mountaineering challenge which includes climbing the tallest mountain on each continent and trekking the last degree of latitude to the North and South Poles.

Colin’s world record feat has been featured by CBS Sunday Morning, The Washington Post, Huffington Post, Men's Journal, Outside Magazine, People.com, and TODAY among many other national media outlets.

Colin uses his public platform for charitable good - to inspire kids and their communities to dream big and set goals, while promoting the importance of an active, healthy lifestyle to achieve happiness and success. Colin continues to use his athletic ambitions to make the world a better place.

How setting goals can lead to incredible outcomes. The importance of good risk management. Why Colin wants to a build something bigger than himself.

107. 012: Outspoken Advocate for Civil Rights in the Episcopal Church | John Shelby Spong
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 58.73Mb)

Description:

John Shelby Spong, whose books have sold more than a million copies, was bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark, NJ for 24 years.

Guest Biography

John Shelby Spong, whose books have sold more than a million copies, was bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark for 24 years before his retirement in 2001. Many of the views that once turned the former Episcopal bishop into a lightning rod are now regarded as so matter-of-fact that they barely garner much notice: ordaining gay clergy, blessing same-sex marriages, or having a female presiding bishop. His admirers acclaim him as a teaching bishop who makes contemporary theology accessible to the ordinary layperson — he’s considered the champion of an inclusive faith by many, both inside and outside the Christian church. In one of his recent books, The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible’s Texts of Hate to Discover the God of Love (San Francisco: HarperOne, 2005), this visionary thinker seeks to introduce readers to a proper way to engage the holy book of the Judeo-Christian tradition.

A committed Christian who has spent a lifetime studying the Bible and whose life has been deeply shaped by it, Bishop Spong says he was not interested in Bible bashing. “I come to this interpretive task not as an enemy of Christianity,” he says. “I am not even a disillusioned former Christian, as some of my scholar-friends identify themselves. I am a believer who knows and loves the Bible deeply. But I also recognize that parts of it have been used to undergird prejudices and to mask violence.”

A visiting lecturer at Harvard and at universities and churches worldwide, Bishop Spong delivers more than 200 public lectures each year to standing-room-only crowds. His bestselling books include Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, A New Christianity for a New World, Why Christianity Must Change or Die, and Here I Stand.

Bishop Spong’s extensive media appearances include a profile segment on 60 Minutes as well as appearances on Good Morning America, Fox News Live, Politically Incorrect, Larry King Live, The O’Reilly Factor, William F. Buckley’s Firing Line, and Extra. Bishop Spong and his wife, Christine Mary Spong, have five children and six grandchildren. They live in New Jersey.

108. 011: Math Teacher Turned Hip Hop Artist Performs to Change Lives | Dee-1
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 40.95Mb)

Description:

New Orleans native David Augustine, aka Dee-1, didn’t start rapping until he was enrolled at Louisiana State University, but he proved to be a quick study. He released his first two mixtapes during the mid-2000s. The year he graduated from LSU and began teaching mathematics at a middle school, he released his third mixtape. In 2009, the same year he opted to stop teaching and focus on music, he self-released David & Goliath, his proper debut album, throughout which he maintained his down to earth underdog approach. Several additional mixtape releases followed, and his profile continually grew; 2012’s The Focus Tape alone featured collaborations with Killer Mike, Mannie Fresh, and Juvenile. The year it was released, he made an appearance on HBO’s Treme (season three, episode nine). Augustine signed to RCA Inspiration and released an EP, 3’s Up, in 2015.

Dee-1 has toured the country with chart topping and Grammy award winning artists such as Macklemore, Lupe Fiasco, Lecrae, and PJ Morton. Most recently, he has headlined his own 30 city nationwide tour.

Dee-1’s public profile skyrocketed due to his viral hit, the student loan anthem “Sallie Mae Back.” After receiving a substantial advance from signing his first major record deal, Dee-1 made a conscious decision not to buy a new car, a big house, or some expensive jewelry, he decided to pay off his student loan. He prides himself on being debt free and to be a rapper responsible for a hit song that is highlighting financial freedom and a tangible message, is just icing on the cake for the New Orleans native. To date, “SalIie Mae Back” has hit millions of views on Youtube & Facebook.

How to prepare for a performance. We non-actors can event benefit by these insights and routines because life is a grand performance! How you should not tie your self-worth to your work. We'll explore all sorts of things like wealth, fulfillment, and happiness. Linus is not just a great actor but after hitting many of his professional goals by age 30, he began to wonder if this is it? He took a break and explored the spiritual aspect of life that included meditating for at least 2 hours a day! So we'll explore this too.

117. 003: Transforming a Passion for Ping Pong into Big Business | Franck Raharinosy
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 43.65Mb)

Description:

Meet Franck Raharinosy, an entrepreneur and ping pong player who has worked in event production, media, fashion, hospitality, writing, and film. When talking to him, it doesn't take long to realize that passion drives his actions, and he strives to make a positive difference in the world. He co-founded SPiN ping pong social clubs with best friend Jonathan Bricklin, Andrew Gordon, and Susan Sarandon.

Guest Biography

Franck Raharinosy is a socially-driven entrepreneur and co-founder of the ping-pong social club, SPiN. “If you’re a ping-pong fanatic, this is your spot" hails the Examiner, while the New York Times describes SPiN as a “relaxing home away from home.”

In 2009, Franck turned his passion and love for ping-pong (a love so deep he even trained for the 2012 Olympic games) into a playful, yet successful, career. A self-titled “Naked Ping-Pong” loft party for friends (no one was naked, by the way) sparked the idea for the ping-pong social club, where everyone from grandmothers, to 7 year-olds, to Drake, to Bieber, to Prince, has picked up a paddle. With locations across the United States, SPiN continues to grow, creating a place to socialize, celebrate, and connect through a game that transcends age, gender, and boundaries. Before SPiN, Franck pursued a successful career in filmmaking and fashion.

Franck grew up between France, Reunion Island and Madagascar and has called New York home for the past 20 years. He graduated with a degree in marketing and business management from the Ecole de Gestion et de Commerce on the tiny island of the Indian Ocean, Reunion.

Driven by passion and curiosity, Franck has managed to build a life out of turning his passion and purpose into business ideas that span genres.

SPiN, his most recent business venture, is a ping-pong club that was inspired by his never-satiable love for sports and competition, as well as connection. What started as an idea for a party in 2006, has turned into brick and mortar ping-pong clubs sprouting up across the United States, where club-goers can indulge their own love for sports and play. Franck’s appreciation for style and sportswear motivated him to design and sell his own fashion label to Barney’s in the early 2000’s. Franck has produced award-winning documentaries like The Entrepreneur and Waiting for Mamu and self-published a book of creative writing in 2014. Franck recently completed a screenplay inspired by his personal journey and has been acting and collaborating with some inspiring filmmakers.

Franck’s career far outshines what he dreamed it could possibly look like as a child growing up between Reunion Island, Madagascar and France.

119. 001: Playing Guitar for the Love and the Money Followed | Jim Kimo West
http://traffic.libsyn.com/insp... download (audio/mpeg, 44.58Mb)

Description:

Today, I'm speaking with guitarist Jim Kimo West. Now I grew up watching Late Night with David Letterman in the early 90s. I've always had this understanding that the best musicians were those like Paul Shaffer and the World's Most Dangerous Band because they could perform at the highest level with any musical guest covering all genres.

It's in the same light that I have such high regard for Kimo. He great at what does and he plays from the heart. If you do not know him, he has played along side the king of parody Weird Al Yankovic for over 35 years. He can pull off an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo with ease (as heard in Eat It), then followed by a spot on Green Day guitar tone (as heard in Canadian Idiot.) If that weren't enough, he's just as proficient covering the Back Street Boys, Lady Gaga, and Don McLean. I've seen him rap in the style of Chamillionaire on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

As a guitarist myself, I'm kind of a sucker for listening to creatives talk about their work – perhaps because it's so different from my desk job. I also appreciate sitting down with Kimo because of his very unique career path to success. His band is truly like no other. His band has sold more than 12 million albums, recorded more than 150 parody and original songs, and has performed more than 1,000 live shows around the world.

Kimo is also a prolific and respected Hawaiian “slack key” guitar artist. If you;ve seen the Oscar-winning film, “The Descendants” you have experienced this great acoustic guitar tradition. He's a two-time winner of the LA Treasures Award.

In this interview we talk about money, music, taking risks, and what motivates him to be the best musician he can be. Let's get inspired with Jim Kimo West.

Guest Biography

Jim "Kimo" West first visited Hana, Maui in 1985, after a long summer on the road as guitarist for famed musical satirist, "Weird Al" Yankovic. As the sounds of Gabby Pahinui, the Sons of Hawai'i, Sonny Chillingworth, The Sunday Manoa, and others, played on the turntable, he jammed along for fun and relaxation. Already a devotee of open tunings, he was immediately drawn to the gentle rhythms of ki ho 'alu (slack key guitar) and soon began writing his own songs. The rich physical and cultural landscape of the Hana Coast has provided the inspiration for many of his compositions.

While always retaining the heartfelt essence of traditional slack key, Jim "Kimo" West brings much of his own musical heritage to his original ki ho'alu instrumentals. His style can best be described as "nahenahe", meaning "soft, sweet or gentle voice", a fusion of old and new but still rooted deeply in tradition.

Jim lives in Los Angeles where he writes and produces music for film and television. His music has graced feature films and TV shows on all the major networks and cable channels and his slack key compositions have been featured on National Public Radio, Honda TV spots as well as the Disney Channel . He travels regularly to the islands to perform, relax and visit with his "ohana". He also performs slack key concerts around the mainland US, especially in the Southern California area, and at selected private events.
