So here's the big question. How are entrepreneurs like us who have been hustling and struggling to make it to success, who seem to make it one step forward, only to fall two steps back? Who are dedicated? Determined. And driven. How do we finally break through? With that is the question. And this podcast will give you the answers. My name is Brian Kelly. And this is The Mind Body Business Show. Hello, everyone, and welcome. Welcome. Welcome to the Mind Body Business Show. You know, I think I say this every single time we start a show, but every time I mean it. This is going to be an amazing, amazing show. Not because of me. Oh, no, no, no. Because of Janine Bolan. She is going to be on here in just a moment, I promise. And you are not going to miss this wonderful, amazing woman, so full of energy, so full of experience, so full of success. And that is why she is on this show and that is what we do on this show. The Mind Body Business show is something that I had developed with you in mind, the entrepreneur, the small business person, the person looking to get ahead. And what I do is I interview only successful entrepreneurs on this show for the sole purpose of extracting their secrets that have brought them to their current level of success. So that all you have to do is simply take notes and then take action and model what they have done. And you you get to pick and choose. And we have oh, my gosh, entrepreneurs from all over the world have been on this show and it has been amazing. It's like attending a seminar for free every single week. And if you're not on our announcement list, you'll want to do that and just head on over to the Mind Body Business show. It's a lot of typing the mind body business show, dotcom, and there are many buttons in that site that all go to the same place that help you to register. And all we use it for is to send out announcements when we are about to go live.

Brian Kelly:
We don't pitch, we don't sell. It is, hey, we're going live. Here's the link. Jump on in and let's have some fun. So go ahead and do that after the show is over. So here's one thing. One of the things that I learned while I was speaking on stage was the importance of staying in the room. And that means you staying in the room, the virtual room. What does that mean? It's like I would hate for Janine to be coming up on that golden nugget that could change your life forever. And I would hate for you to be wandering off and typing in a URL to go check out a resource that either she or I mentioned during the show. And your attention span is there. She's giving the nugget and you miss it. I would hate for that to happen. So please take notes during the show and then go after the show to visit those resources. Sound good? Right on the mind body business show is about what I call the three pillars of success. You might have guessed that as part of the very name of the show, mine means mindset. And what I've done is not only have I interviewed many successful entrepreneurs, I've also studied them for a period of about ten years, successful people. And what I learned were those they had these three pillars. One was mind, which stands for Mindset. And to a person, each and every single one of these very successful individuals have a very positive, powerful and most importantly, flexible mindset, very important. And then body. That literally means taking care of one's own body, both through exercise and nutrition. That is what successful people do. And then business to business is multi, multi, multifaceted. There are so many skill sets that one must master to build a successful business and then to grow it and scale it. I mean, they are skill sets like marketing, sales, team building, systematizing, leadership. I could go on for quite some time and being an astute audience member, listener, viewer, businessperson of your of your own right, you know that to master any one skill can take a long time.

Brian Kelly:
I mean, to be an expert in anything I hear is like 10000 hours of focused effort. Right. The good news is you personally don't have to master every skill set. Ooh. What? Tell me more, Brian. I will. And to do that, all you need to do is really master one skill set. And that is one of the skill sets I mentioned just a moment ago is the one that you need to master and concentrate and focus on. And that is a skill set of you. Ready? Drum roll. I need to get a sound bite for that. It is the the skill set of. Yes. Pause on on purpose of leadership. Leadership because when you have mastered a skill set of leadership and look, even if you don't have a team you want to start mastering, leading yourself, yes, you can do it right now. Once you have mastered that skill, you can then bring in pull in people into your team who have already mastered those skills that you have yet to or may never master in your lifetime. And that is the beauty of leveraging in your business. It's about working smarter. And I like to say and harder not not harder. I don't like that one. I hear that a lot. Smarter, not harder. No. Keep keep working hard. That's how we all make it ahead. Speaking of making it ahead, we're going to move ahead. And so what we're going to do right now is segue into a wonderful segment because one of the other very common attributes of very successful people is that what I found is to a person, they are all very avid readers of books. And what I like to do is real quickly segway into a very short segment. I like to call Bookmarks.

Announcer:
Bookmarks. Going to read bookmarks. Ready steady. Read bookmarks brought to you by reach your peak library dotcom.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah there you see it. Reach your peak library dot com. And here is your first test. Write it down. Reach your peak library, dotcom. Write that down on a piece of paper, notepad on your notepad on your computer. Just write it down and stay with us. Janine is up next. You do not want to miss this amazing woman. Okay. Reach your peak library dot com. That is a resource that I put together. I had my team put it together with you in mind. And I am not kidding when I say that because I myself was not an avid reader until about 11 years ago. I'm going to really task you here. I'm going to let you do some math. That was when I was 47. So do the math. You all, you should get it. So when I was 47, I started reading finally very avidly and very voraciously. And the reason I didn't for so long, I didn't even realize it is that I did not I could not seem to finish any book if I was reading it with my eyeballs and opening and turning pages. But then this thinking came across my knowledge base. I guess it's called audible, and many of you know what that is already this was fairly new. I'm like, What is that? I had a mentor. I was listening to a book and I said, You can listen to a book. So I got an audible and I said, Oh, this is it, this is the ticket. So all of my books I've read, most of them now, I've read a few actually hard copies, but most of them are on Audible and you see them scrolling. There's no rhyme or reason. What this is, is a collection of books I have now read since the age of 47. It's not every book I've ever read and I'm falling behind on adding those to the list. But the only books you'll see here are those that had either a profound impact on my professional life, personal life, or both. And they're not here if they didn't. So not every book I've ever read, which is in a short time span of 11 years, is on this list for sure.

Brian Kelly:
And there's many more I need to add. I got to get reach out to my team and say, add these extras. One on here. There's no rhyme or reason to how these are on here. They're not alphabetic. They were just put in as as we came across them. And I said, put this one in, put this one in. And the purpose of that is just find the first one that speaks to you. You know, that you read the quick little description you see there. If it if it's something you say, man, that looks like a good book, click on the buy here button or don't do it here. You can do it on Amazon directly. The purpose is not here to make money from you. It is for you to have a library of resources that will, with high degree of probability, help you in either business, personal or life, or both, I should say. So that is my quote unquote gift to you to begin this show. We have more gifts coming. That's another reason you want to stay on. Even our amazing special guest expert has a gift for you. And speaking of that very wonderful person, let's bring her on. It's time. Here we go.

Announcer:

You do want to pay attention to this young lady right after I introduce her. Yeah, I am going to. Stop talking at some point, I promise. Janine Bolen has always loved figuring out how things work. A scientist from the beginning, she craved to dig into the mysteries of life and understand why things are the way they are. After working in the pharmaceutical industry for 15 years, she dropped out of corporate America to homeschool her four children. She has always had a side business going on in her life, and she shares with other business owners and creatives how to manage a well-lived life of children, family, friends and clients while not suffering from burnout.

Brian Kelly:
Oh, my. How many of us would like to learn how to do that? Sign me up. Her 12 books. Did you hear that? 12 books. 87 online courses for podcast programs and syndicated radio show all express her desire to share her systems and routines with others. I am so unbelievably excited to share with you the amazing and brilliant Janine Bolen. Officially, formally. Welcome to the show, Janine. I am so excited for this. Oh.

Janine Bolon:
Thank you so much, Brian. It's lovely to be here. We've been waiting a while to get on each others docket, so I'm just thrilled that we finally we made it due to we slid into home plate.

Brian Kelly:
Here we are. I was afraid you were going to say we've been waiting a while to get on each other's nerves.

Janine Bolon:
Like there is that.

Brian Kelly:
You know, I don't think it's possible. I don't think it's possible with you. I don't think you could ever get on my nerves. You're just amazing. What I like to do is start off with something about what is going on in your big, beautiful brain. Janine, what is it that is really catapulted you to success, that made you an overnight success over the past ten to 12 to 15 years? And that's truly how it works, isn't it? And the thing is, is what I found to a person is that our level of success or lack thereof, is 100% attributable. Attributable, I can say, to what is going on between our ears individually. It's no one else's fault. And so knowing that, that is the key to one of the main keys to success. Janine, for you, when you get up in the morning and you're getting ready for your day and you know about, look, it's not all sunshine and roses when you're an entrepreneur. There are tasks, there are arduous tasks. There are things, issues that need to be solved. That's what we do as entrepreneurs. But it's not always fun. And, you know, there are some arduous tasks coming up. What is going on in your beautiful brain, Janine, that keeps you empowered, that keeps you propelled forward day in, day out, week in, week out, month in, month out, without ever giving up. What is it for you that just keeps you driven?

Janine Bolon:
I know what I want. And I and I do that on purpose because it's that simple. I know what I want. And I have found many entrepreneurs that are in confusion and that they don't know what they want. I mean, yeah, they've written out their goals. They have targets, they've set dates, they have timers, but they really haven't taken any time to decide what kind of lifestyle do they really want. They may figure out a piece of it now. They're very good at that. You know, almost everybody I've ever met is very good at being able to figure out that piece. Like, the reason I want to be an entrepreneur is and then they'll label a section of their life that they want to have, but because they didn't really focus on the other 90%, they don't understand why they're in overwhelm all of a sudden, because they didn't have the full picture of what kind of lifestyle they were actually after. And for me in 2015, when I decided to do this gig again, being a full time entrepreneur, when I chose to do that, I was very careful. I went on a retreat. It was me, myself and I. I went on this retreat and I went to a hotel in a city that I didn't know anyone. And then I decided to spend two and a half to three days figuring out what is my. It was a joke to myself and I didn't realize it would catch on with my clientele, but it was like I created my perfect life and people are like, there is no such thing as a perfect life. I go, There is in my head. You talk to any creative, any creative. I guarantee you we all say the same thing. The book that's in my head is better than anything I can ever publish. The piece of art that I want to paint is better in my head than anywhere I can go. Every graphic artist I've talked to is like, I just wish I could take what's in my head. It's so beautiful, it's so lovely. And I just want to put it out on the on the written page. You know, we've all we all have that. It's perfect in between our heads. So that's what bounces me out of bed every morning. I have crystal clear clarity on what I want and I go after it like a war campaign.

Brian Kelly:
I love it. And in your you have you have courses obviously 87 of them and you help entrepreneurs is that is coming up with what your I call it your why but what you want is that part of any of your courses. I'm only guess I can only guess. Yes. Yeah.

Janine Bolon:
It's just a small piece about it because until people do that and there are so look, I know I'm not for everybody. And so there are so many amazing coaches out there and people who are dealing in leadership and help people with their why and they're working with people. It's like, you know, I work with the entrepreneurs that are getting ready to move up to the next place about the point where they're so overwhelmed and they're ready to hire their first virtual assistant. That's where I come in. But otherwise there are other people that are helping them with what I call rice and beans. Right. You know, back to the noodles. If you're Asian, it's all back to the noodles. If you're Hispanic, it's the rice and beans. And for me, it's about the grits from southern Missouri's. You know, we all have it's time to go back to the basics. And when you're at that level and you're trying to determine, okay, what is it you really want out of life? I really feel sorry mostly for the men in my lives, because they all had the same sort of situation, which was you're to protect, protect and provide, protect and provide what you want doesn't matter. You're to protect and provide, protect and provide you. You were taught that from knee high level, right. And so to when I would ask my male clients, so what do you want? Like the dull oh my God, you know, there's no emotion there. It's like they totally go into their head and it thrashes. The machine is just thrashing. There's nothing happening. I feel for them because they've never been asked that before.

Brian Kelly:
It's true. Everything you're saying is so spot on and it's like, Yeah, I mean, we're never asked that and we're not given. It's not that it's anyone else's fault, it's just our upbringing. And we didn't know any different.

Janine Bolon:
That's correct. Yeah. And so I love this younger generation that's that's popping up because they're like, I am going to live my abundant life and I am going to have fun. And, you know, and the people are saying, well, aren't they selfish? And I'm like, it's about time. It's about time people be selfish in this way, which is, I want to live the best life I can go make it happen, let me know how I can help.

Brian Kelly:
And you know, for the folks that think is selfish that might make those comments, it's actually the opposite because you have to take care of yourself first. If you're happy, then whatever relationship you're in is most likely going to be a good one because you're going to choose someone that helps fulfill what you want. Yeah, you know, we didn't know that going in. I'm happy, but I'm just saying it could help. It could help strengthen relationships. Not not the opposite. I think it would be a very good. And so, yeah, we were talking about we both have 26 year old sons at the moment and they're right there, I think, at the cusp. Yours is delivering you wine in the in the back and the room. And I love that.

Janine Bolon:
Oh, yeah, that's what's happening. All right.

Brian Kelly:
He brought her a bottle of water. I think it was right up on it. And I said, Hey. I just having fun. Is that wine saying, no.

Janine Bolon:
It's my my bottle of water here.

Brian Kelly:
Thank you. They're too bad. It's okay. It's allowed. You can do. That. That's fine. Well, I'm going.

Janine Bolon:
To I'm going to follow up with something you said in your intro about how you were talking about mind and body and business. When you're talking about to a person and you start talking about all of them, take care of their body. I just started laughing because every morning my timer goes off at 6:05 a.m. and I am downstairs in the basement doing my weight training. I'm not a big runner. I despise cardio. Oh my gosh. It is not what I do like. The last thing this body is going to do is run not happening. And so but I do love weight training and so I do that. And then of course I live in Colorado, so I hike quite a bit, so I'm walking a lot. So those are the things that I do. But it's so funny when you were like to a person, blah, blah, blah, and I'm like, I just wanted to say.

Brian Kelly:
I.

Janine Bolon:
As a why.

Brian Kelly:
I. Another box was checked.

Janine Bolon:
Jenny You betcha. You betcha.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah. And I want to really point out that, look, everyone, this is a woman who says she loves weight training. And I think there are far too few women that actually engage in weight training because it does so much for I'm a former certified personal trainer and what I found was, look, what women are afraid of is they're going to grow manly muscles and look like Arnold or something. Look, it takes guys half a lifetime to get anywhere close to looking like Arnold. So and we're built differently. It's not going to happen. It won't happen when you do weight training. It it does so much more for your body. It strengthens it literally strengthens your your structure, not just your muscles, but your bones, because they're part of it. They're supporting your ligaments, everything. Your energy increases. I'm getting all goose bumps because this is like bringing back old times. It is like my best. Drug on the planet with no side effects is working out. And we call it resistance training. So weights, bands, body weight, push ups, pull ups, that kind of stuff. Definitely. So listen to Janine. She's got the secrets to success. I hope you're taking notes, everybody.

Janine Bolon:
My favorite part is that I'm losing weight while I sit because of weight.

Brian Kelly:
Training.

Janine Bolon:
Because it has, you know, as you build up the muscle and everything. But the main reason is ever since college, I've just not been a runner. Everybody was like, Oh, you need to run, you need this, you need that. And it just wasn't good for my joints. My body didn't respond well. So I was one of those weirdos, right? That I was there doing the weight training. And of course, you didn't see a lot of women in 1992 in the weight training game. And for all of you who are out there saying, oh, I was I say thank you because I know you were alone in the weight room with the guys and I was running around to the guys going, How do I do this and not hurt myself? And what was lovely is to a man, they all were more than willing to help me so that I would not injure myself. And I have to say thank you very much.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, that was kind of like it's like an unwritten rule of gym etiquette, no matter who it is, what level they're at, what body type they are. That's a beautiful thing. You never get made fun of there because many that are in the gym that look great were there at some point.

Janine Bolon:
They all started zero.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah. And the other part, for those that may never have had an issue with weight or anything like that, it's like I look and say good on you. I mean, congratulations. You're doing something about it where a lot of others are just back on their couch, slap it in the bonbons and tips and watching TV all day, and it's okay to take breaks and do that. I'm not going to say you should never do it, but definitely get working out exercise. And then the other thing I like to say is you don't have to do it to the extreme either men or women. So many do not have to look like Arnold, even though we all would like to. At some point. I would back in his heyday. Not now. Oh, my God. No, he's great. And and women, you don't have to look like a supermodel with your body. It's all about fitness. It's all about feeling good. If you take your direction, your focus to feeling good, and doing more for your body to help you in your business, in your life, then you will see the visual changes start to happen. It's about changing your focus. All right, I'm going to get off my soapbox because I want this to be about Janine. And I started down this rabbit hole of fitness, but thank you for bringing that up because it's very important.

Janine Bolon:
Brian, we're just playing to your strong suit, and I don't mind doing that. Not at all, because it's to me, it's one of those things that it's talked about a lot. But when you actually start talking to entrepreneurs about what is your physical regime, what is it that you do? We all have such wildly different ways that we handle it. You'll get an idea of what it is that you can do. And so with me, I'm known as the Queen of modification because I have injured myself in so many different ways due to horseback riding and jumping out of airplanes and doing a lot of wild and wooly stuff that I wanted the adventure of. Because of that, I have had to learn how to do things differently or just because of the way my body is built. I can't do a normal pushup. I just I've tried. I've even had trainers look at me and go, Yeah, that's not going to work for you. That isn't that isn't good for your body, right? They can tell that something is wrong, mechanically, wrong being a weird word. But anyway, we're all built differently. And so that was one of the beautiful things is that we would as I would sit and chat with different people, whether they were a black belt martial arts of some kind, or we were doing weight training or we were talking. What I started to notice is we all do it our own way. Typical entrepreneurs, man. It's like, Oh, this isn't working or Oh, this really sucks. So then let me try it this way. Whoa, wait a minute. I'm getting progress with this, and you just keep playing with it. And that's the whole key. It is determining when you start working on your physical fitness in this way and you set as your goal progress. It's a whole different game plan. And that's what we do with our businesses is we're just looking for progress, we're not looking for perfection.

Brian Kelly:
And it's a perfect, perfect example of flexibility when it comes to the mindset, which is a key, as I was stating in the beginning. And so you just so eloquently stated it seriously and you just proved it that being flexible is the key to success for Janine. In that particular case, it's her key to succeeding and continuing to exercise and feel good. She found a way and is probably constantly modifying it to find even better ways or different ways. You know, look, as I get older, I just I jumped on a treadmill a couple of days ago here in the house and my right knee, it I don't know, it's rolling the dice whether it's going to just want to kill me or it's going to let me do it. And that time it was wanting to kill me. And I was in I was in pain, but I'm a guy, so I must do it and made it through it and probably completely just destroyed it. I don't know. But it feels okay right now. But yeah, you want to definitely modify and be flexible mentally and then in this case also physically to to try different things to get to that. All of these are equally important people that might be saying, you're not talking about business right now. Yeah, that's right. Mindset and body. Mind and body. Those are two very, very important aspects. It's it's like a tripod. If you take a tripod and you kick one of the legs away, what's going to happen to it? It comes tumbling down. Mind, body, business, same thing. So anyway, my goodness, there's so much I like the number three. I like the number three because it's a digestible number. We can get to it. If you were to come up with just three things, three things that helped you to become a successful entrepreneur and you think that they are the three now primarily where you are now in your stage, in your career, and most particularly for your clients. If you can think of three skill sets that are vital to their success, if you could think of three of them, what would those be and maybe why?

Janine Bolon:
The very first one is if you are not making money, you are not in business.

Brian Kelly:
You.

Janine Bolon:
I know that that sounds very duh. I am aware, but it's amazing how many people go Whoa. I think there is in certain, especially with women, it's very difficult on the money gig. I don't want to be a salesy person. I don't want to constantly be selling blah, blah, blah. And I'm here to tell you, if you're not selling, you're not in business. However, the way you go about it, there are so many ways that we can wrap that up. And I have whole workshops that I teach on. This is how you sell and still keep a friend, this is how you sell and make sure that you're selling to the right people. This is what you need to be doing for yourself. So that's number one. Number two is when you decide to go into business for yourself or do anything that requires some sort of timeline that's longer than six months. You want to be stubborn. And so I like to say I'm one very tenacious individual, and that is I don't give up on myself and I don't give up on my vision. If I've had a vision about something, I go after it. No holds barred, full court press. I go after it. Now, does that mean that I'm burning hot the entire time? No, because I'm not loaded with heavy fuel. For those of you who are in the racing industry, I know I have to be able to calm down every once in a while. So I have a mindset of my tripod, is that I either acknowledge the fact that I have to accept the situation as it is. I have to pay taxes. There are certain things I have to do that are not my fun place. I hire out as many as I possibly can afford. The second thing is I better be enjoying what I am doing. So there is an acceptance, then enjoyment and then enthusiasm. So my vision almost always puts me at a level of enthusiasm. And then what I do day to day is enjoyable. And then there are the times where I just have to accept the fact that this must be done, and that's where that tenacious, stubborn mentality will save you.

Janine Bolon:
So I highly recommend that you have a very strong sense of vision. Now, the last one, and this can get you into trouble with some of your friends, but it's appropriate and that is you be an absolute time management nut. I remember that when I started asking my friends back in 2015 to sign on to calendar in order to schedule time with me. I actually lost five friends over the course of six months and that was because they thought I was being arrogant. They thought that I was being brouhaha. And what they didn't understand is when I showed people screenshots of my calendar, they were like, Oh my God, when do you sleep? I'm like, I get 6 hours, 7 hours of sleep a night. I take care of this body. But at the same time, you're going to have to fit into my schedule. You're going to have to fit into that schedule because that's the way I want to bring you into my life and I want you into my life. But I can't bring you there. And I can't meet with you on your timeline because my timeline has a long range, 15 year goal associated with it. I don't know if you have that. If you do, then we'll work it together. So people like Brian and I, you know, we both were looking at each other's calendars going, holy crap, we're not going to be able to get together for two months, you know, between your travel and my business schedule, you know. Right? But entrepreneurs understand that about each other, realize we are a very weird breed. We are so crazy that we demand freedom over security. Do you realize how bizarre that is? In today's world? We demand freedom and we want freedom for our own schedule. So because you fought so hard to get that freedom and you have that vision for yourself as an entrepreneur, make sure you are a time management zealot for yourself. And if on your calendar it says it's time for you to do X, Y, Z, you do it now. I'm a single mother and I have four children. My time doesn't always end up being my own, and that's where that flexibility comes in.

Janine Bolon:
And that's why I do all the time blocking and moving my blocks of time around and everything, because there are those moments where life just happens. And one of the things that I've told people is there are two things that will keep me from being at an appointment. The first one is something happens with a kid and they need me. I will drop everything from my family. That's why I became an entrepreneur, because where I was in corporate America in 1996, that was not a big thing. And as a woman, if you put your family first, you were frowned upon like promotions. I watch people not get promotions because they put their family first. So that environment. The second thing is, I also happen to be a reverend. I'm a shaman. I work with the Native American community. I have 16 different tribes that I'm affiliated with as far as assisting them with my skill set. And so I will drop everything if one of the tribes needs me, because that is a spiritual obligation. What is amazing. Is if you're working with people like Brian or any one of his guests, they honor that. They're like, okay, good job. I understand that because I always tell them, advance. As soon as I know we're going to have a problem on the calendar, I immediately fire off an email. Dude, so sorry. Got to run up the mountain. Got to do a ceremony, I apologize, blah, blah, blah. And the response I almost always get from a professional is, when do you want to reschedule?

Brian Kelly:
Yes, yes.

Janine Bolon:
Because we understand we chose freedom over security.

Brian Kelly:
And that is the one thing that is going to deserve this mark. Knowledge bombs, bombs of wisdom. I mean, we demand freedom over security. I have never heard that. That's crazy. I love that. That is so. True. That is the that's like the number one reason.

Janine Bolon:
That's it. Every entrepreneur I've ever met to a person I've never met, an entrepreneur that didn't have that, which is why we're considered risk takers by so many people or that we're gamblers.

Brian Kelly:
Oh.

Janine Bolon:
No, we're not. We're. No, we're not. It's just that we demand to have freedom and the freedom to choose our own life, even if we fail. Epic failure. So you and I have both that we were talking about our failures when we were in the green room. We both have failed at what we're doing. But did we fail in life? No. We both talked about how we learned so much from those failures that that's why we're successful now, because we were really good at failing and picking ourselves back up and going, wow, that didn't.

Brian Kelly:
Work. Yeah. And that that was an issue I had in the very beginning was I wanted to be perfect and never do anything wrong. And as a result, I never got anywhere. I had to fail more and more. And all of that really came down to one thing. And that was to do as much as I can about distancing myself from my own ego. And once I was able to do that, then I was able to be okay with quote unquote failing because failure is just, you know, we say there's no such thing as failure, only feedback. You look at it as feedback and learn from it and change your approach to what you just, quote unquote, failed at. That's how you get better. And the more you fail, the just think about how much faster you get better. But you pointed out three things the keys to to skill sets for an entrepreneur. And I loved how you said if you're not making money, you're not in business. There's a guy named Michael Gerber that wrote The E-Myth Revisited. He said something very similar, not quite right at money, but it was similar. He said, if you don't have systems in your business, then you have no business, you know? And that one at that time I didn't have them. And it went right between my eyes like, Oh, okay, I guess I'd better get with it and get some system. Now I got systems coming out my ears. Thank you to him. And be stubborn. Don't give up. Oh, thank you. Thank you.

Janine Bolon:
Because tenacious be stubborn. Be that alligator that grabs a hold of that prey and just keeps rolling in the water until you get what you want. It's just one of those things that's in my nature. It's like when I have such crystal clear clarity on what I want that people say, Oh man, you're just so laser focused. What they don't realize is, No, I'm not technically laser focused. I have moments where I'm laser focused, but for the most part, I'm very I'm very wide open in my view. It's only I get laser focused when I'm in a specific project and I know this is the next piece to get me that to that goal. That's 15 years down the road.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah. And you know, that's the key. You know how many times have your own closest family members without really meaning to, but they are stealing your dream by saying, Oh, what are you doing? You're wasting your time with that. Come on, grab a six pack. Let's get back on the couch and watch some football. You know, stop wasting your time on that stuff and they just want to be with you. They also want to kind of pull you back down to their level because if you succeed, then they're fearing you're going to be leaving them getting it's all these weird things that go on. But that's the thing. Never, ever, ever, ever give up on your dream. And I'm so glad you pointed that out and then be an absolute time management nut. Yeah, the calendar. I love Google Calendar. Oh, my gosh. I love it. I've got everything in their personal business and all my business calendars tied to it so that if it's in my calendar, it's not available. I'm sorry. And that's how.

Janine Bolon:
I've had funny things happen where my children have emailed me a Google invite to get on the phone call with me.

Brian Kelly:
And it was I love it.

Janine Bolon:
And it was a joke. It started as a joke. And then it became it became habits like because they knew that I had time blocks for different things. So there's something I didn't talk about. Time management, I think is really important as entrepreneurs, we're creatives and managers and something that I allowed to cause me heartache for too long. I want to share with you guys so that you don't spend seven. Years trying to figure this crap out. The first one was, you need huge blocks of time to do the creation part of your business and you need time to be the manager. And I didn't have that in my head. Right. I just learned it on my own. Maybe your other people are smarter. They learn it faster than I am. It wouldn't surprise me, but I just it was one of those things that I learned I had to sleep differently than other people because of the need. Because I'm an author, like people talk about, Oh, my God, how'd you write 12 books and 80 some odd online course and blah, blah, blah. How did you do all that? Well, that's because I go to bed at nine and then I get up at 3:30 a.m. and I create until my alarm goes off at 605 and at 6:05 a.m. I'm downstairs doing my weight training and that's how my day starts. My day my day starts as a business owner slash manager at 605, and I do not allow my calendar to have a meeting before 9 a.m. because that's when I have that. So I'm very, very strict. And some people call me a machine and what they don't understand is that machine, those systems, is what gives me all the flexibility, because I don't have decision fatigue, because I know exactly what I am doing moment by moment. And that is the killer for most new entrepreneurs is decision fatigue. Yeah.

Brian Kelly:
You know what's coming? That was too good to.

Janine Bolon:
I just love that.

Brian Kelly:
Man. Oh, my gosh. You just you just dispelled one of the biggest myths out there, which was, you know, for people who have worked corporate like you and like me, one of the last things on earth I wanted to do was put structure into my entrepreneurial business, because that's what I came from. The difference is who was dictating that structure.

Janine Bolon:
Right.

Brian Kelly:
Was it them or now it's you and you just you made a great point. You said that having that structure, you didn't use those words, but that is what gives you the flexibility in the time. Freedom, not the opposite. Oh.

Janine Bolon:
That was you're one you're the one that's dictating it. And so when your beloved wants you to come sit down on the couch, drink a beer and blah, blah, blah, you're like, no problem. I'll be there Friday at 530. Boom. Right. And we have in my family, we have Pizza Fridays and my kids know that at 330 on Friday, I shut the lights off, I turn off the computer and I am I am theirs. And that's the other thing. As an entrepreneur, a lot of people will say, oh, I still I always have business going on in my head. I don't have that because it's on my calendar. I don't need to think about my business until I have that spot in my calendar where I need to think about my business. Otherwise, I'm 100% with my kids or with my friends or whatever it is I'm doing in that moment.

Brian Kelly:
And you have done something else that's very vital to being able to do everything you're doing with the structure you put in place. And that is you have a team that helps you.

Janine Bolon:
Oh, that was required. But I was terrified to hire my first VA. And so that's why I talked to that's why I pick entrepreneurs at that stage. And if they want me to coach them, I will because I was so terrified that when I contacted the first person that I was going to hire and I said to her, okay, here's a book and you want to talk about books that were life changers. For me it was Michael Hyatt's world class assistant. And you can go to a world class assistant dot com and you'll see Michael Hyatt's book. And at the time he was doing this big promo where he had a mastermind and workshop. So I paid 40 bucks for this little tiny book of his worth every penny because I then bought it for the lady I was thinking of hiring. And she and I read it together and we built out the systems and pretty soon here we are, you know, four years later. And I have quadrupled the amount of time that I've used with her. And I've hired every member of her team.

Brian Kelly:
To.

Janine Bolon:
Help me with my business. But in the first 30 days that I had an assistant, my business tripled. So, yeah.

Brian Kelly:
Isn't it just a like a mind explosion of just wonderfulness the moment you get the help because now you think differently? I remember when it happened for me and I was like, Wait a minute, I can say yes to that. I don't have to do it all myself anymore. I have bandwidth now that I didn't have before. I'd have someone say, Hey, can you convert everything I have in this one tool? My website is on this and poured it over to the new tool that you you recommended you use. And before that I'd say, Heck no, I don't have that time for that. But now I'm thinking, Wait a minute, not only can I do it, I don't have to and I'm not going to, but my team will. And I went to my team and I said, How long do you think that'll take? Give me an estimate of hours. They gave it to me. I said, All right, I'll give her an estimate of cost. It will be. More than I'm paying them by by a long slot because I don't pay that much for Vas and we can have that chat later with everybody. And so not only did I get the help, I need it. I made money in the process. I'm like, Wow. I love this world of getting help. So to everyone out there, please, please, if you do nothing, if you get nothing else from this entire show, which I'm sure you got a ton because of this young lady, and that is get help. Reach out to Janine. Reach out to myself. We will give you resources that you can go and get that help you need. And we can also help you if Janine is willing to. I keep saying we don't want to speak on your behalf, but you seem like a person who loves helping. And if you get on her calendar in the next six months, it's the first lot you might be able to have that talk. So just be. Sure to do that. Oh, my goodness. Yes, you are fricking awesome.

Janine Bolon:
Well, there is one more tidbit that I can definitely help people out with, and that is for those of you who belong to a lot of networking groups, like you're a part of a lot of masterminds and stuff like that where you're bouncing back and forth. A lot of people, what I ended up doing was something that saved me 5 hours a week, and that was the first week. The second week it saved me 11 hours and I keep getting a lot out of this. So what I did with my calendar was I had so many one to ones where we were trying to do joint venture partners and all that kind of stuff that I was like, I don't have time on my calendar between that and the production schedule with the four podcast and then my client's podcast, because we're like you where we are hired as a concierge service for businesses, right, that want to have radio shows and all that. It's one of the things I liked about Brian. People were like, What do you mean you're going on the show? Aren't you guys competitors? And I went.

Brian Kelly:
No.

Janine Bolon:
We both do the same thing, but we do it differently enough. We're not even the same demographic, you know. So anyway, I just had to share that because I thought it was funny. Anyway, so what you do is you put one hour a week, that is what you call an open virtual.

Brian Kelly:
Chat, right?

Janine Bolon:
Mine is open my mine. I call open Friday coffee and it's for an hour and from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. I have a zoom room and I use Zoom's feature so that they have to register through Zoom. So they give me their first and last name and their email.

Brian Kelly:
Address.

Janine Bolon:
And I will be there. And this is a holdover from my college days when I was a math and science professor. And so I would have open office hours as you do. And so this to me is like open office hours and I pick Friday because everybody's kind of downshifting into the weekend anyway. And what is amazing to me is I'll have anywhere from 4 to 15 people sometimes on that call, and sometimes they come from Matchmaker FM, which is the podcaster and guest connecting place. And they just want to know if I can handle myself well on camera or.

Brian Kelly:
As a.

Janine Bolon:
Podcaster, because we've all had those guests. And so they'll talk to me for a little bit and go, Right, well, taught me for a little bit. But that one thing, that one idea, which I wish was mine, but it comes from Michael Whitehouse, who wrote the book, the guy who knows a guy. He's a professional networker. Businesses actually hire him to connect them with people. Okay. He's the one that came up with the idea. And then he gives me credit for taking the ball and running it for so far down field. And he was like, God, Janine, I didn't even think you'd get that much leverage out of it, but I was making anywhere from 300 to 1200 dollars per open Friday coffee. Not because I was selling, but because my students would want to take the next lesson. They had lost a link, all that kind of stuff. But because it was an open coffee, they felt comfortable to come on, ask me the question for the course. I send it to them. They paid the 4.97 and we would move on. So just an idea that's phenomenal.

Brian Kelly:
Are you still doing that to this day?

Janine Bolon:
To this day, you can get on. And so if you go to the eight gates dot com, you'll see on the menu open Friday coffee click it's there.

Brian Kelly:
Well I might just have that available.

Janine Bolon:
That is of course you have it, Bill. Thank you so much. Brian, you're a sweetheart.

Brian Kelly:
Oh, well, absolutely.

Janine Bolon:
This will give you a free online course called The Ten Steps to Abundance. And there you go. That's the menu. And Open Friday coffee. You can click on that and you will be taken. I just let you know, take it easy, you know, show up when you can leave, when you have to. If you show up to the room and nobody's there, it's because everybody asks their questions and we left. So it's better to be early than late.

Brian Kelly:
Oh, this is genius. Janine, you are such a breath of fresh air. Oh, my God. I've learned so. Much. I'm going to. Go. I think I'm going to have some coffee Friday. I'm not sure.

Janine Bolon:
I also I also introduce you to the rest of my community because everybody that comes on, I know and sometimes people will show up. I have a person I need, blah, blah, blah, and they happen to be in there in the room with us. And I've seen people like go. Janine, can you put us in a breakout room? We need to go talk. And we don't want to interrupt what you're doing here. So I'll create breakout rooms and send people off so that they can go chat and stuff. It works out very well. Everybody, I love stuff where everybody wins. I win. They win. Yes, I love stuff like that. That's just that's why I'm in business, because I can have that freedom and flexibility to be able to bring people together like that. And then everybody gets what they need. It's wonderful.

Brian Kelly:
And I would argue that is why you are also very successful. That is probably. To everyone watching and listening. Please, please know that that is one of the most valuable recipes to success. What she just said, make it so that everybody wins at all, at all times, as much as possible. And this is a great opening for the eight gates. Get it opening gates. I threw that in there.

Janine Bolon:
Well done.

Brian Kelly:
And I just got a million of them, I tell you.

Janine Bolon:
But just keep them rolling, babe. Just keep them rolling.

Brian Kelly:
What I would love for you to do, Janine, and for everyone listening. Oh, my gosh. They just keep commenting. I love this is definitely go over what it is you do like who is your ideal client I guess would be a starting point. Is it is it single moms? Is it entrepreneurs, small business owners? Is it corporations? I think you've touched on it already, but we'll clarify that and see who that is. And then what does it do that you do for them specifically, if you can get to specifics in a short amount of time, I know that's a stretch. And then if that would be for me, it's what I'm saying. And and also, if you have a success story or two you would like to share with us, I'd love to hear that as well.

Janine Bolon:
Okay. So we'll go in order. The first one is what is your ideal client? And the thing is, is the ideal client for me is anybody who wants to move to the next level in their business. But this is what I'm going to make a caveat. I am very clear on what my lane is. And if you have a situation or a process that is outside of my lane, I will refer you to somebody else who is better. And so that's where I always have no difficulty at all referring you to other people in my network, such as Brian or others, especially if they want certain services that I don't offer. Currently, I am an author who has written in four different genres, so I have four different demographics of people, but it all comes down to the same thing. They want to change their life for the better, and they're doing that through an online business. And so I specifically target authors and I prefer authors who have been published for six months at least because the initial launch is over, their sales has dropped, they don't know where to go next, and that is where I can best serve them. Does that help? And so I have the thing that I work on, which is my book, my virtual book tour. But what is interesting is also works for business owners. It's the same freaking process. Instead of it being your book that you're taking on virtual tours, it's your business. But as you know, in marketing you have to niche down very tight, otherwise you are not heard in the noise. And so I chose to go with author podcasting instead of promotional podcasting. And it's a way to take your business or your book on tour. Last thing is, what do I do that brings in the money so I can put my four kids through school and college? They're all in college right now, and that is and that is like Brian, I am a podcaster as well as a radio show production company, and we help people that have money. We help people in businesses that have money but not time. And we are a concierge service. White Glove Broadcasting is the name of the company and we take you from the logo design all the way through post-production to social media, and we help you do that. And so our packages start at 15,000. So that's our B to B section. I think that answered everything. Did it?

Brian Kelly:
Success story.

Janine Bolon:
Oh, that's right. I missed one. Yep. Thank you. Success story. We had a gentleman that came to White Club Broadcasting, and he told me that I was too expensive. He didn't want to pay for the team. And so we are still he has still not started his podcast, and that was over 13 months ago. And I asked him how much money he spent and he goes, Never mind, next time I'll hire you.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah.

Janine Bolon:
So it's not a success story. It's more of a tale of caution.

Brian Kelly:
And I love I mean, that is such I get it inherently what you're saying there. And you know, I think 15 K is actually on the low side depending on how long that it lasts for a year. And I do the same thing for a year and my price points 25 K and 30 K in some instances because there is so much.

Janine Bolon:
Lots of moving pieces, lots of moving parts.

Brian Kelly:
We and you just said everything, logo creation and all that, we do the same for that. We do live video shows ourselves and and the resources that are necessary, both from the services that we are acquiring on your behalf and the team we have working on your behalf. It's like you've just hired a company to do this.

Janine Bolon:
Or you have yeah, you have hired a company whether you hire Bryan or I. Yeah.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah. 15 ks a drop in the bucket. It's also called a no brainer. What about. You know, so think about this. And I love to make the comparisons. I love how you are big into the authoring in the books and that's your target market because you know, when it comes to those two things, a book or a podcast or a live video show the difference. A couple of difference, a book. You write it. Once you become a best seller, you just said it, you know, you you sell it for whatever, whatever the lowest amount you can sell on Amazon, $0.20 a buck, two bucks to all your friends and family, become a best seller because you did the minimum, which was I don't know how many 20, 50 copies, whatever it is. And you're up forever on Amazon best seller, even though you only saw the people you know and you got five bucks out of it. And then after that, what happens is the crickets come out and that's all you hear. And the thing is, you've taken you put your your life, your soul into this book. Everyone I've ever known to write a book has done that unless they're ghostwriting and. Then you're sitting there going, Why the heck did I just do all that? Well, it's a good thing still to do because you now have the greatest calling card in the world. It's better than any business card ever, ever designed. But the thing is, with the book, you wrote it once and there's no way to change it. Not that I've ever found. Not in real time. Not after the fact. Unless you do edition two or something like that with a show, it's different every single time. And when you transcribe a one hour show, you have the equivalent of half to two thirds of an entire book. I mean, let that sink in. And so I have amazing, unbelievable people on my show like Janine Bolan, who I'm telling you, this has been one of the I say this to many people, but it keeps getting better all the time. I have strategies to keep getting better and better people onto my show.

Brian Kelly:
And holy smokes, is it working because of Janine? And I've learned so many things. And the great thing is it's a valuable. You're giving value to people and guess how much they had to pay to get that live video to watch it or the recorded version? Big Fat Zero. With a book. They have to pay a little bit of money, but it changes. It gets better. I mean, it gets better. It changes. There's variety, there's value. So it's and how much does it cost to promote the show versus a book? If you go to a publisher well in excess of 15 K. That's where I was going with all that well in excess. If you if you've got a bona fide true company and guess what, they won't promote it unless they know it's going to be a seller. So you've got that to get over another hurdle with a live show or a podcast. You don't have any of that. And my God, 15 K is nothing compared to the kind of look at Janine. Do you think you're going to get value for that? Oh, my God, yes. You're going to get she's going to overdeliver. She's going to way overdeliver. So 15 k drop in the bucket. Consider what it would cost you not to do it. How's that? That's a good one.

Janine Bolon:
There's a good one. That's the one you do.

Brian Kelly:
Absolutely. So, yeah. So definitely that was a great story. I didn't expect that one. That was a a lesson. It was more of a lesson.

Janine Bolon:
It was. And it's one of those things that I like to tell people, look, you can do it your way and I encourage you to do it your way. But if you want to do it a way that I've done it, it saves you seven years and $35,000.

Brian Kelly:
I mean, do it. Your way. Experience the pain and understanding it does take to do this and then hire somebody who's done it and does it efficiently, has done it over and over. And that will give you you will come out the highest quality version of you because you're not worried about all that minutia and all the noise leading up to the show during the shows, the sweet spot. That's the fun part. I love this part. And then after the show, there's post-production, there's there's repurposing, there's video editing. There's all kinds of great stuff going on. But you're not thinking about all that if you have someone like Janine doing it for you. And it just it lets you be present and let you shine. And when you get to shine, you can better make your guest shine, because that's what this show is all about, is making Janine Shine. Yes, I call her a shiny ball instead of a ball in the beginning. But I think every get that she's.

Janine Bolon:
Shining, I think we'll be.

Brian Kelly:
Okay. Yes. Lori Ann, heard. You can watch this 50 more times. I hope you do. Please. Yes. Make sense. And she says we are on fire.

Janine Bolon:
Thank you, Lori.

Brian Kelly:
And I want to call out Marcia's name. She sometime ago said good one day. Masha, Katrina, thank you so much for coming on. I hope I said your name correctly. I don't always pronounce things the best way, but I'd give it a go anyway. All right, Mighty. What do we got? Oh, wow. We're at. We're past our time, so it's time to wrap it up. I don't want to. So our first hour is now complete. We're going into our number two. I'm kidding. I would love to. Easily we could. My gosh, Janine, this I literally this has not happened. I cannot remember the last time this happened where I lost track of time and we went over. But we are going to end it. Not right away. I hope you're okay, Janine, with a few more minutes. Cool. And I did promise that give away. I did not forget those you that stayed on live. We're getting there. We're really close. What I like to do and Janine has a gift, too, so. Oh, you don't want to miss that. What I like to do is I like to end the show with one special question that Janine is aware of, the fact that there's a special question, but she doesn't know what it is.

Janine Bolon:
No, he didn't let me see it. He had it all blacked out on.

Brian Kelly:
Yes. Nice little redacted. Redacted quest. Yes. To open that loop. Oh, I love open loops. And so it's a very profound question. I started asking it on occasion in random times during the beginning of the show, which is over three years ago when I started, and I just started realizing that was a different and profound answer. And that's another profound, wow, that was Holy Smoke. So I said, Well, I'm going to end the show with that every single time. And that's I cannot wait for that before we jump into that. Okay. What I promised you is a way for you to enter to win a five night stay at a five star luxury resort. In many areas of the world, you get to choose from all compliments of the big insider secrets dot com. I'm pointing at their logo in the upper right of your screen and she's up plotting the plot of Lord. Yes, yes. So to do that, get out your pen. I hope you've been writing notes all this time. You don't have to get it out. You already got it in your hand. And you hope you have writer's cramp. Because, look, I tell everybody to write notes. This is page two of mine. I started page two. I'm not kidding. So I'm running the show and I'm writing notes. I get so much value out of this. Oh, this is awesome. Because of her. Because of hers. And so here it is. Be ready. Write this down. Don't sweat it. You don't have to enter this. This second. You'll get time when the show is over. Write it down. Enter, go, enter. After we sign off. So it'll be here just a few minutes. All right? Promise. Here it is. I'm putting it up on the screen. For those of you watching live, go to enter at our WIP. I am forward slash vacation guest experts are allowed to enter to our WIP dot. I am forward slash vacation. It's interesting that happened. Janine, one of my guest experts did it. I never said they couldn't. I didn't say they could either. And that guest expert won. The random draw was awesome. I was like, Yeah, oh, I'm going to go with that. That was fun. And that is it. R.i.p. I am forward slash vacation enter after the show's over. And then one more gift before I ask that big question. You don't want to miss this question. I tell you not. You do not want to miss that question. So the gift is going to be from this lovely lady. I'm going to bring it up on the screen and basically let her yak about it to you so you can understand what it is. And I'll pull it up on the website as well. So you get a visual of it. So go ahead, Janine. Take it away as I pull everything up for you.

Janine Bolon:
So this is my media kit course. And at first I thought it was something that I would only be of interest to authors. And I learned that as people started doing more and more podcasting in 2020, go figure. As they started going on to more shows and promoting their businesses, they had no idea how to do that very well for these teams of podcasters like myself and Brian, who have whole groups of people that are working with us. So the effort that you're putting into this media kit will pay for itself in spades because it helps you be that stand out guest and it helps you take your your business or your book on a virtual tour. So like I said, I really need shut down for authors, but it's the same process. It's the same system for business owners as well. And so what you do is you go on, you get registered, and then there's an opportunity, if you want to, to be on my podcast show, realize we're on 47 platforms, 64 radio stations, but also realize I'm a pay to play. I am not a free show. So just wanted to let you know, but the media kit is free and I have had people say to me, Oh my gosh, Janine, I can't believe how everybody thinks I'm pro just because I get to say to them, Hey, would you like my media kit?

Brian Kelly:
Fantastic. And that URL to go to to get your free. How long is this good for Janine? I mean, are you going to leave this up for anyone who listens?

Janine Bolon:
Anyone who listens? This is this is something that I offer when I speak. So it's free to your community. Most definitely.

Brian Kelly:
Thank you so much. I'm going to pick it up. I mean, I'll let you enter my vacation giveaway. So I'm going. Pick up a copy.

Janine Bolon:
Get yourself a media kit. Cause it only take you about an hour or someone on your team and only take them about an hour to fill it out. Yeah, to get through it.

Brian Kelly:
And I'll just do this live. I have a resource. I would love to connect you with another person who is doing something somewhat similar, and you could combine your knowledge and maybe and go even further with this concept person in mind as you are doing this, that person is in the pod. There's this towards podcasters, toward books. Like you said, they can be used interchangeably or for your business as well. So that URL I promised and I never said it is. Our. Wip dot. I am forward slash media kit course all together. No spaces are WIP that stands for Reach Your Peak. That's my company name. Just to give it some clarity dot I am I have no idea what that stands for or slash media kit course. Go there, write this down, go there. After I ask this question because this is going to be the most amazing answer I think we've ever had on this show.

Janine Bolon:
No pressure.

Brian Kelly:
I can almost. Exactly. I love it.

Janine Bolon:
No pressure. I'm saying, hey, this is a comedian, man. And they're really, really funny.

Brian Kelly:
No pressure. They're the funniest comedian I have ever heard. Ever. Oh, this is going to be awesome. So. Okay. All right. A couple of quick check on. I see more comments. Oh, man. Always, always fire. I enjoyed the stinky Lauren Hood, and he's honest about this. I promise. I don't remember what I was talking about. Thank you, Lauren and Marsha. I hope I again say that. And Katrina and yes, thank you so much for coming on and making comments. I love you guys. You're awesome. So the thing about this question, Janine, wringing their hands here is. There is no such thing. As a wrong answer. Oh, it does not exist. In fact, the exact opposite is the truth is that the only correct answer is yours. Why is that? Because it is unique to you. And I know this from asking hundreds of people this question now and so. Yeah. It's not personal. It doesn't get in your knickers, but it is personal because it's going to be unique to you, and that's the only reason it's personal. So with all that build up. Are you.

Janine Bolon:
Ready? You really need that drum roll sequence. I'm going to gift you. I'm going to gift you. That MP three file, my man.

Brian Kelly:
I love it. Make it an animated gift so he can put it over us.

Janine Bolon:
Oh, yes, sir.

Brian Kelly:
You got it. Are you ready, Janine?

Janine Bolon:
I'm ready.

Brian Kelly:
Oh, right. Here we go. Janine Bolen. How do you define. Success.

Janine Bolon:
Okay. How do I define success? I define success when I wake up in the morning. I've had several opportunities to die in my lifetime, and the fact that I wake up and I get an opportunity for a brand new day to me is success. So I see myself as successful as soon as I wake up in the morning and I put my feet on the floor and to me, the rest of my day is a bonus.

Brian Kelly:
Wow. Succinct and to the point. And you know what's coming. Oh, yeah. That is Janine Bolan, the epitome of smart bombs, bombs of wisdom, all of those nuggets. Unbelievable. Amazing, incredible, tremendous. Stupendous. I could go on all night long. About. Adjectives for this amazing young lady. Janine, I am so serious when I say thank you so very much. I'm so glad this day finally came. What an amazing, amazing show. Because of you, I have learned so much and I look forward to nurturing this relationship further with you into the future. Because, my gosh, you're just you're special in such a great way. Such a great way. And I don't say that about most people. I do love every guest I have on the show, don't get me wrong. But. Oh, yeah.

Janine Bolon:
I hear you on that one. Yeah. Yeah. Thank you.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, you definitely raise the bar in every aspect in the value brought in the authenticity, in your in your experience, in your intelligence and your humor. I mean, the whole package. So appreciate you, my God, for four kids. Oh, God bless you. The whole thing, how you do what you do and you've been so successful doing it. God bless women all over the world who are mothers and that are going through, you know, raising kids, especially on their own. I cannot imagine. Janine, so God bless you for that.

Janine Bolon:
I would I would like to honor the the men that stand behind us and help support us. I just wanted to say, it's not every country where women are allowed to own property and where women have a right to choose their mates. And there's a lot of things that we are given in Western civilization that I just wanted to say. I want to honor the men too, because I know we have a hard job, but we couldn't do it and we couldn't step out the way we have been if we didn't have assistance from them.

Brian Kelly:
Wow. Well, thank you so much. That's awesome. On behalf of all men, I accept that. That was awesome. Yay. So every man that watches this, you just accepted it because I did it on your behalf. Using the power of live video shows. Just embrace it. I love it. True. It's all right. That is it for our show. We're going to make it a wrap. I hope we can hang on a little bit longer, Janine. After it's over, it'll be a wrap. But ladies and gentlemen, this has been the amazing Janine Bowen on the Mind Body Business Show. I'm your host, Brian Kelly. And I cannot wait to see you all again on the next episode. Until then, go out there and crush it. Go out there and serve somebody. Go out there and help somebody become successful. Because that is where the true meaning of life comes from. Every entrepreneur I've interviewed agrees with that. I know Janine is no exception. She said it earlier. So go out there and make a difference one person at a time. And and the rewards will come to manyfold. Janine. Perfect example of that. Until next time, be blessed, everyone, and take care.
