Speaker1:
So here's the big question,

Speaker2:
How are entrepreneurs like us? We've been hustling and struggling to make it to success who seem to make it

One step forward, two steps back, work dedicated to turning. And Dreft. How do we finally break through? That is the question. This podcast will give. My name is Bob. This is the mind body.

Speaker1:
Hello, everyone, and welcome, welcome,

Speaker2:
Welcome

Speaker1:
To the Mind Body Business Show. Oh, my goodness, we bring the most amazing people to you so you can listen to and learn from their genius. And tonight is no exception. Latricia Grant Mingus's here with us. She is waiting, just chomping at the bit to get up here on stage and share her brilliance with you. And I can't wait to share her with you as well. What an amazing, amazing young woman she is from so many aspects. And we'll get into the details of her incredible integrity and character and her love for people and helping and her incredible intelligence and experience that she brings for you tonight right here on the mind body business. I cannot wait. She's coming to the mind. Body Business Show is a show we had developed with you in mind. It's a show by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. The sole purpose and mission of the show is to help you, the audience member, the person watching or listening on podcasts. To give you the tools you need to become more successful more quickly, that's what we all want, is more rapid results and we want but results that don't come at any cost of our integrity or character. Very clear about that. And that's what happens. I bring on guest after guest, successful person after successful person like Patricia, and each and every time they give their wisdom, their value, their golden nuggets. So I implore of you to take notes through this, because when they talk, take notes and then take action when the show's over and go back over your notes. This is like a free seminar every single week. This week is special. We're doing two shows this week.

Speaker1:
We normally do one because we have a special guest this. Latricia, come on now. All right. And one of the things I found in my now many years on this planet, I'll be fifty seven real soon. I just said that out loud. That is crazy. Hard to believe. It's awesome, though. Every year is a victory. About the last decade or so, I just began studying only successful people and wondered what made them perhaps more successful than someone like me. I mean, do they not put their pants on one leg at a time after a man like or do they run and jump and land on them and they have superpowers? What is it that they do and why are they more successful? In that study? I learned and found three things that kept bubbling to the top each and every time to a person, these very successful people, they had these three key components and they are the very name of the show mind being that they have a very positive and even more importantly, very flexible mindset. Body is all about taking care of one's own body through nutrition, through exercise. And then business is multi multifaceted. There's things like sales, marketing, team building, leadership, systematizing. I could go on a long time. And what these successful individuals had done that I studied is they hadn't mastered the skill sets required to build a successful and thriving business and to grow it. And all those skill sets were part of that. The good news is you look, if you're going to master any one thing we all know, it takes a long time. If you want if you want to be an expert, I think the sweet number is something like ten thousand hours that you're doing it before you can call yourself an expert.

Speaker1:
Well, who's got ten thousand hours times the multitude of those skill sets that are needed to master for a business. Not many of us. So the good news is if you master just one of them and I mentioned it, it's one of those that I mentioned, if you master just one of those and the rest will fall into place. And that one skill set is the skill set of leadership. And once you mastered that, you can then bring in those who have mastered those skill sets that you have yet to master and may never master, to be honest. And they can then take and fill those gaps for you and your business. So that is that that is what the mind body business is all about, is about what makes people successful, eliciting that from my guests who will then gladly and graciously give out their, quote, unquote, secrets to success. And just to hint at there's really no secret and you'll learn. You'll learn as we go through this, the more shows you watch. Patricia, I'm sure, will give you every bit of advice and secret you need to know to crush it without watching another single show. And that's just the way she rolls. She's amazing. And another wonderful, wonderful thing about very successful people. Don't worry, Latricia's coming on very, very soon is that to a person, they are also very voracious readers of books. And with that, I like to segue into a segment I affectionately call bookmarks.

Speaker3:
Bookmarks, Hornsey, read bookmarks, ready, steady, read bookmarks brought to you by Reach Your Peak Library Dotcom.

Speaker1:
There you see it, reach our library dot com, a word of advice to everyone watching and or listening is to write that down. And not just that, but any resource that moves more more than myself that Latricia gives you tonight, write it down instead of clicking on a tab and going off and searching and looking. Because when you take your gaze away, your eyes go to a different place, your attention goes with it. And I would just so, so hate for you to miss that golden nugget that Latricia is about to drop that could change your life for better, for forever. And so this is the advice I give each and every show I do this from stage is keep your your gaze and your attention span with us. Take notes, write down the websites, write down the resources, write down the book titles and all those things, and then later you can go back to them. But keep your gaze here, because Latricia's coming on here in just a couple of minutes. Once I get thrown gabbing about all this great stuff. Reach your peak library is literally a resource that I had built with you in mind. It is here because I myself was not a voracious reader until about ten years ago. And then I learned, oh my goodness, this is the most transforming thing you could do in your life. And it doesn't come at a great cost. So I put this together.

Speaker1:
What it is, is a library of books that I personally read that had profound impact either on my business or my personal life or both. And you can see as we scroll down and show you this on screen, as we do this live on video, that there is no rhyme or reason to the order that these books are listed at all. They're not alphabetically are not in order of how much profound impact they had on my life. I just dropped them and had them put in here the moment I finished reading them and just said, put them in there. I don't care what order. So this is here for you to just find out one book that jumps off the page that you haven't read and just click the button and get it. This is not, I repeat, not a money making website. Persay. Oh, my goodness. If you've ever tried selling books, you'll know that there's very little margin. This isn't the reason. The reason is not for making money is to provide you with a valuable resource that I never had when I started reading. I just got great advice by great mentors on what books to read and kept following along with that. Speaking of following, along with that, it's time to follow into our next segment. What do you say we bring on the amazing Latricia Grand Mangoush right now? Let's do it.

Speaker3:
It's time for the guest expert spotlight. Savvy, skillful, professional, adept, trained, legally qualified.

Speaker1:

And then we'll get to this amazing young woman here and have a great show. If you're struggling with putting a live show together and it's overwhelming and you want a lot of the processes done for you while still enabling you to put on a high quality show and connect with great people like Latricia Granicus and grow your business all at the same time, then head on over to carpet bomb marketing, dotcom. Carpet bomb marketing saturate the marketplace with your message and one of the key components that is contained in the carpet bomb marketing courses, this is one that you will learn how to absolutely master is the very service we use to stream our live shows right here on the mind body business.

Our Web imports live stream live. And now at last, we are going to give Patricia the introduction she so richly deserves. Latricia Grandma Mingus is the CEO and co-founder of Grand Mingus Entertainment Group. Right on cue, radio ad promotions and marketing company and online radio station located in, you guessed it, Las Vegas, Nevada for twenty five years. There's no way she could have this experience.

Latricia developed significant experience in the Areas of Business Administration program and project management instructor led training, virtual instructor led training, business analytics, strategic planning and implementation. She knows business information technology and customer service. Latricia is a wife, mother of four amazing adult children. Yes, I have two of those persistent entrepreneur life coach in No Fear coaching since twenty ten and a host of live talks, a daily talk talk show currently broadcasting on where else, but right on to radio her radio network.

Speaker2:
With that, you deserve a round of applause.

Speaker1:
Oh man. I need to go work out some more. I'm out of breath already. How are you doing this evening, Latricia? Welcome to the show.

Speaker4:
I am. Well, Brian, thank you so much. I truly appreciate this opportunity. I'm very honored

Speaker1:
The honor is mine. And that is because I got to know you. And we didn't talk that long. It just that was like this synergy, this connection. And what came out to me was you choose with integrity and character.

Speaker2:
Just thank you.

Speaker1:
It just comes out of your pores and yeah, you're just an amazing individual. And I loved when we were talking what you you said your mission, your purpose was and what you and your husband are embarking on. And we'll get into that definitely deeper as the show progresses. I cannot wait for everyone else to hear this. And you just come off as you've got it all at the heart. You've got the experience. You've definitely got the smarts and knowhow. You've got the full package and you've got a supporting husband that you're both in this business together. That's that's game changing right there. I have a spouse that supports and vice versa. So, so many things about you impressed me, Latricia. And I'm so, so glad that you took the time out of your busy schedule to come on and be here with us tonight.

Speaker4:
It is my pleasure. And again, it's my honor. And I have to say, I just could not have asked for a better intro. I don't think I've ever been introduced in that manner. So thank you so much. And I'm so happy to be here. I'm just very excited to be here.

Speaker1:
It's going to be a lot of fun, what I like to do is find out so we know that you are very adept at business. I mean, the opening bio says a lot, and I love that it gives everyone an idea that, well, Latricia is real. She's not a tire kicker. She's not a wannabe person. Right. But one thing I like to do is kind of go in a little deeper, a little deeper. And what that means is in order for anyone to achieve success, something has to be going on correctly between those two ears. And for you, what I wanted to find out, like every day, you know, being an entrepreneur, it's super, super simple. We never have issues. It's just like an easy life right now. Could be farther from the truth. So knowing that every day you're going to be faced with a new task, a new a new challenge, what is going on inside of that wonderful, beautiful brain of yours when you get up in the morning and you're about to take on the day, what is going on with your mindset? What are you going through? What are you doing on a daily basis that keeps you going through all of the arduous task and all the challenges that hit you every single day to keep moving forward for you? What is that?

Speaker4:
For me, it is the time that I take in prayer. It is my prayer time if I don't start my day with my prayer time, it is a hot mess. Oh, for the rest of the day it is. It's my prayer time. And just taking the time to be thankful. You understand, it's not about asking for a bunch of things, because as you stated, when you wake up in the morning, the motor is already running. So to put all of that on pause and just to say thank you for opening my eyes today. Thank you. That I have breath. Thank you. That I made it through the night. Thank you for just giving me another chance to get it right that for me, since the day I can do everything after I've had that moment in prayer. Absolutely.

Speaker1:
And we were talking a little bit before the show, we I think we share a belief system in that area and I couldn't be more agreeable, even if folks aren't a believer like it's a it's what a lot of people call an attitude of gratitude. It doesn't matter what your belief system is. You can all do this by going through. And just what are you grateful for? And there's great ways to do exercise exercises that they seem kind of corny that you're out driving and say, well, I'm grateful that I can see what's right and I'm grateful I can see this dreary sky. Even if it's raining. I'm grateful. I can feel this water that you just got. There's so many things to be grateful for. And when you start your day out like that. So you're listening to. The recipe for. What a recipe, what, Latricia, if you ever have your big the cake.

Speaker4:
Yeah, I'm not a baker. I'll cook. I'm not a baker.

Speaker2:
But if you get

Speaker1:
A recipe for a cake, could you do you think you could figure it out? Like, go get the ingredients. It says to get the sugar, the flour, the whatever. They put it in eggs and then and then follow directions, mixing a bowl, slapping a pan, throw it in the oven. If you preheated to whatever, you could probably make a pretty darn good cake if you had a good recipe, right? Absolutely. And so with our ship or business or success in life, there's really no difference. Just you have a recipe. You just heard it. All you have to do is follow it. Like I said, it's not it's not rocket science. There's no big secret. It's just knowing the things that successful people do and you just model them. Go ahead. You had something to say.

Speaker4:
Look, I was going to say the the attitude of gratitude is not something that I've always made a major part of my day. It really took for me to go through some stuff. First, we get mired down in all of the happenings of life. We become very frustrated or irritated. Sometimes it even goes farther than that, depressed and all of that. And I had to go through a very difficult season in my life where. It took everything that I had just to say, OK, there's got to be something about this life that is still worth living, and that's where the attitude of gratitude started kicking in because like, listen, you know, whether you are currently an entrepreneur, whether you are working for another company, whatever it is, you've got to start that day remembering that there's so much more going on than just that job or that business that you have. And you've got to be thankful for just being able to play the game. You know, that's what it is for me. I had to go through some stuff, Bryan.

Speaker2:
Ok.

Speaker1:
It's interesting that often that seems to be the case, isn't it, that a lot of times we need to go through some kind of trial in order to come out on the other side of it lights a different fire under our butts. It changes our course. And oftentimes it's looking back. I can see why that happened.

Speaker2:
Right.

Speaker1:
That was allowed to occur in my life. OK, I got it at the time, though. You're gone.

Speaker2:
Oh, my God.

Speaker1:
What is this all about? So just stay the course and follow what Latricia's says. Pray in the beginning in the morning. Start your day with prayer.

Speaker4:
And one other thing to. We are so trained to wonder why me, why is this happening to me, I started to flip that question to why not me? When you change how you look at that, why not me? Doesn't matter how dire the circumstances are. Why not? Why shouldn't I be the one going through this? Why should it be someone else? Because once we get our minds into alignment with that. Our decision making process then shifts from being a victim to being a problem solver. Resolution Vinther, why not me? I obviously have something in me that can handle whatever this is and guess what? You've been through some things before, so I'm absolutely certain that you've got some tools now to make it through whatever this is, business or otherwise.

Speaker2:
And for me, it's coming,

Speaker1:
It's right, knowledge bomb, smart bombs, bombs of wisdom, all from Latricia grinding those listen up mindset is one of the key components of success and Latricia is giving them right now. So be sure to write this down and follow this and get in the habit of it, especially the attitude of gratitude that is such an easy thing to form a habit for. Just you don't have to write a list. Just put a reminder gratitude and you get up and do it for, I don't know, a few minutes, start off slow and then go to five to 10, however long it takes for you to start rewiring your brain for better. And that's what I'm telling you. After I was about forty seven, Latricia, when I finally realized I had no idea that everything my place in life might be, their level of success or lack thereof had nothing to do with any outside forces. It was what was going on in the training. Once I realized that I started doing work on that.

Speaker2:
Wow, absolutely.

Speaker1:
And I never would have met like you had that not happened.

Speaker2:
Thank you.

Speaker4:
And I could say vice versa.

Speaker1:
That all seriousness, that wouldn't have happened because just everything I learned something called NLP neurolinguistic programing and at a deep level taught it from stage. And just it was a life changer. It's a science. It's not. Woohoo! I know. I used to be like that aleatoric feels

Speaker2:
Like right now.

Speaker1:
And then after I learned it at a deep level is that you can't you can't take my face.

Speaker2:
That was the main reason.

Speaker1:
So fantastic. All right. We got a couple of things going on that I need to take care of. Apparently, we're having some connectivity issues. There's one. All right, where we connected so weak. That was nice and easy. So you have done a lot in your short time on this planet. The Bible was reflective of that. Now, if you were able to rewind and go take a step back into the younger Latricia and you knew what you knew today. What would you have done differently, if anything, going back to say when you first began making those career decisions earlier on in your life?

Speaker4:
I would have become an entrepreneur straight out of high school.

Speaker2:
Yes, yes,

Speaker4:
That's the change I would have made, I want to skip all of the jobs that you weren't happy with and all of the shenanigans and office politics and I would have just gone for my own space. Pretty much that's and what I realized is in being an entrepreneur. I just happened to pretty much what I've always sort of done in my mind, set my thought processes, it's all pretty much been the same for as long as I can remember. It's great being older and wiser and having the tools to properly apply, but I think the trial and error would have been well worth it.

Speaker1:
Well, it's interesting, I have similar thoughts, I came from the corporate world myself as well, and, you know, I totally get it. The hijinx and the everything. But I also and I know you needed to talk a lot from experience wise to inject into my current business. And the thing is, you learn what you don't like as an experience. You learn in a meeting, make you just.

Speaker2:
Well, you're right.

Speaker1:
It's like you learn a lot of good things to good or how important it is to document your systems. And that doesn't mean in the paper anymore. You can record video. This is what I do all the time, record the screen and talk or have my team do it. So I got a lot of good stuff from it and I just hang my hat on that because the bad was what I felt. That from you is the same as

Speaker2:
I

Speaker1:
Felt the same way when you said I was just like, yeah,

Speaker4:
There's a reason we work for ourselves.

Speaker1:
And it's interesting. It's like I don't look and I know you don't do this either, but I don't look back and go, oh, man, or at all time. It wasn't a waste at all because you and I both got a great life experience.

Speaker4:
Yes, indeed.

Speaker1:
And we learned what to go away from that we didn't like what you is just as important as what to go toward. Personally, I'm not going to cry in my milk, and I know you won't either. As I say, some of them

Speaker4:
Absolute over spilled milk, whatever it is, cry in your beer, whatever it is.

Speaker1:
Oh, yes. All right. Fantastic. So do you ever have, like, alone or downtime where you're able to kind of recharge and just sit back and do stuff that you want to do? I mean, in addition to your business, we all as entrepreneurs, we do it because we love it. Do you have anything you do outside of the business that you enjoy, that you carve time out for like a hobby or things that you enjoy doing?

Speaker4:
Well, for me, outside of Grand Entertainment Group, right on cue, radio is my other love, which is the if you're coaching, that is my hobby. That is my love. I truly believe that my station in life is to assist others in transitioning from one state of being into the next and for it to be to help them progress from that place of feeling stuck, that place of feeling uninspired, that place of feeling helpless to that space of strength and just being able to say, hey, I may not have it all together, but I know I can make it. That to me is my goal to it's what I love.

Speaker1:
Never is a business, I love it.

Speaker4:
My hobby is a business, right? I mean, I do. I enjoy singing and cooking and that type of stuff. But I don't there aren't hobbies that I would stop and cook. I do love to travel. I will say that I do love to travel.

Speaker1:
Yeah, well, we have so many things in common, literature. I mean, people ask me that question, too. What was the last time you went golfing? I said, I don't know, but I don't care

Speaker2:
Who's

Speaker1:
Doing what I like doing right now. I'm enjoying it. And I love to travel to my wife and I would love to travel. We go on a smooth jazz cruise whenever we can rise several times. Oh, my goodness. That is off the charts. Yeah. And due to recent events, we're not going to be able to make this one that's coming up. But one will be

Speaker4:
The next one.

Speaker1:
Absolutely. And it's just being with the one you love more than anything on the planet that's stuck in that fulfilling. And when you're coaching that one person and you get to that point where they have just hit that unsteadiness, where it's probably step wise and they're getting to the crescendo. But when you start to see the improvement because of things you've helped them do, is that gratifying?

Speaker4:
Oh, my goodness. For me, I literally feel like I'm going to just get out in the street and dance because I remember being there myself. And it was someone who did a group coaching in a training program that I belong to at the time. And boy, once those lights started going off, I said, OK, this is what I'm meant to be doing here.

Speaker1:
And here's what I love about that you took a negative experience that occurred to you. And you turn it into a positive. That's the beauty of going through trials to see what the reason was for you. Yes, I put you through that or allowed you to go through that so that you could now help people because you aren't the only one. We all don't feel like when you're going through it. You are the only one on the planet that's ever existed. Yeah, it's

Speaker4:
Something. Yes, indeed. Yes, indeed.

Speaker1:
And just knowing that other people I mean, just not long, when you tell somebody you're not alone and I know X, Y, Z person is doing the same thing like, huh, I feel better already. I'm not all the way there, but that certainly helps. Have you ever noticed?

Speaker4:
Absolutely. Absolutely. And I'm not afraid to to share some of the tidbits of my personal journey when I coach people, because people want to know, first of all, that they're not alone, but they also want to know they can trust what you're telling them. I'm not an expert, but I know what I know. And I just aligned my training with my life experience to give it the double whammy. So I'm not ashamed to say I've been where you are and I can't experience it as you do, but I know how I felt when I went through that. So, yes.

Speaker1:
And for folks watching and listening to this, this what she just said applies to business in general in all facets, is being authentic and having some level of transparency. Look, you don't have to give away everything about your open up that closet and reveal all

Speaker2:
You

Speaker1:
Can. Be transparent and let people know you're human and do it authentically, not just to do it, but just as part of what you like to do. Then people will relate to you. People will be more apt to do business with you, to talk to you. It's like an open and door, like, wow, well, you're not superwoman. Your normal is superwoman behind the scenes.

Speaker2:
But you see that your

Speaker1:
Husband was throwing up behind you right before the show,

Speaker2:
Fluffing the caper with a

Speaker1:
Little press. Those little crease in there, little

Speaker2:
Boy,

Speaker1:
To show others you are you you have struggles. I mean, look, we go on Facebook and always is. Oh, look, I'm a

Speaker2:
Vacation and

Speaker1:
I'm drinking this exotic cocktail. And life is and there are no problems. And we're looking at this. Most of our lives are gone. I think the way it works with me is, well, I guarantee you they got stuff going on. Everyone to everyone,

Speaker4:
Every person now. No, I don't just magically snap my fingers and both legs are in the pants. I've got to put them on one at a time like everyone else.

Speaker1:
You just do it quicker and more efficiently.

Speaker4:
Some days. Some days, I don't know.

Speaker2:
Some days.

Speaker1:
I mean, these days we don't even need pants.

Speaker4:
Well, because we're all from here to here. There you go.

Speaker1:
I mean, if we're being authentic and transparent, I'm literally wearing workout shorts at this rate.

Speaker4:
I have leggings.

Speaker1:
I've done well before college. I've always done this. It's just comfortable. I'm barefoot. My feet are on a earthing pad. I'm just enjoying and relax. I got air conditioning gone. But the appearance is professional because I'm here to not just represent myself, but also you, Latricia. And that means a lot to me. And but I can be transparent, tell people I'm in workout shorts while I'm doing this. That's fine. I don't mind if people know it. I learned that from a guy who this is going a long way back. All those talk show to awards like Arsenio Hall. There were several others. Dennis Miller had his on his show. I had a buddy who was asked to come on as a lookalike. This guy had the chin of Jay Leno, I'm telling you, my buddy, that look just like him. So he had a Letterman look alike, a Leno look alike and all these things. And when the guy came back, my friend, I asked him about his experience because the one thing that stuck out with him was Dennis Miller during the shoot in a studio was wearing like a

Speaker2:
Godfather

Speaker1:
Suit. Right. Things in his cheeks. He said when he got up, he was wearing shorts right now.

Speaker2:
Oh, a great idea.

Speaker1:
I'm going to start doing that with my live shows. It doesn't matter. People can't see.

Speaker4:
No one can see. Just don't stand. Just don't stand up. You'll be all right. Somebody, I think on CNN got in trouble for that one or something happened. I don't remember. But yeah, it's got to be careful. These people get in trouble

Speaker1:
A little more than most. What I would love to give you a standing ovation, Latricia, but out of respect for you, I won't let this comment. I'll put on pants and do that then,

Speaker2:
End

Speaker1:
Quote. This is going down bad. All right. I do want to bring up your business. I'm very intrigued by what you and your husband have put together on on many fronts. Maybe we start with the entertainment side of the house with your network and what is your mission together with you and your husband for this network and what are you looking to achieve?

Speaker4:
So dreaminess entertainment group right on cue. Radio is the brainchild of my husband, who is the grandchild of Charles Mingus. And I don't know if you're familiar with jazz, but he was a world famous composer and my husband is his, I believe, his oldest grandson. And so in the early 90s, he got into the entertainment industry and just felt like something wasn't quite right. So he backed off and just continued on with his aspirations, with his craft and his gift. But he wanted to find a way to help artists who were up and coming that maybe felt like him in terms of being involved with the mainstream industry. So he started his cued up showcases where he would just produce shows for them to perform flash back many, many, many years later. He and I met and he asked me to come on board and help him. So Grambling's entertainment group, right on cue radio was born. And our specific focus is to provide a safe, loving promotions and marketing platform for up and coming undiscovered entertainers. That is what we do right on cue. Radio features the music of up and coming artists. We play little to no mainstream music, so every song that we play on our network comes from an up and coming entertainer. We play music of all genres. We get music from all around the world. We just got something from South Africa last week and DJ's Sweden. We've gotten music from the UK, from Ghana, from New Zealand and all around the United States. So we are so proud. Our little little engine that could definitely has we are broadcasting to just over 90 countries at this time.

Speaker1:
Wow. Wow. Is that Internet based terrestrial?

Speaker4:
Both It's Internet.

Speaker1:
That's the way to go to it that way. And what I love about it is you're giving the quote unquote, little guy, little girl the ability, the opportunity to showcase their talent is all the music. Are they all original pieces or can they cover for other well-known talent as well?

Speaker4:
All the music we get we do have a few cover songs, but the majority of the music is original content. Wow.

Speaker1:
Wow, so you're showcasing also not just their vocal and maybe instrumental talent, but also their writing skills as well?

Speaker4:
Exactly, exactly. Yes, it's exciting.

Speaker1:
What's that? Oh, there's there's a show that came on recently that we love song song.

Speaker4:
I think I've heard of it. I don't do a whole lot of TV. So we run running off of the TV shows. I may not be able to keep up with you. This is what we do all day, every day.

Speaker1:
So but it's similar in that it's a competition type thing, but it's writers of music who come on and perform their own pieces. It's mind blowing because their talent is they should be the one headlining the song on Scott. And they just it's really cool. So I love what you're doing. You're giving people an avenue, a channel. And so for everyone watching right now, whether it's ever recorded or if you're listening to a podcast, if either you have talent and please make sure you've got someone else to tell you you have talent

Speaker2:
To send

Speaker4:
It anyway. Send it anyway. We take it all. It doesn't necessarily mean it'll all get on the air, but it doesn't matter because there's probably someone looking for exactly what you do.

Speaker1:
Oh, I love it. And so what would be the best way for them to get their their work to you?

Speaker4:
We have a dedicated email address. It's EPK submissions. Aggressing is dot com. So it's E for electronic press kit. So if you're familiar with what that is, it's just epic submissions at Grand Mingus Dotcom. And and we'll take a look at it. We're asking that you send it in three format because that's what our system plays sometimes and before work. But really, MP three is our our go to. And if you can send us your artist name, a brief bio and maybe a picture or two, because in addition to loading your music into our playlist, we also provide promotion's services through our social media. So we're going to create fliers for you and just let people know who you are and all of that. We do have pay packages as well. So if you want a little bit more, then you can certainly visit our website and sign up for one of the packages. But just to get your music in the queue, it's EPK submission, the electronic press kit submissions at Grand Mangus Dotcom.

Speaker1:
That's fantastic. Cool, so there you have it, if you are either you have talent or, you know, somebody else who's looking to get their music heard, then definitely just steer them to the show and have them watch it and they'll get the information. The cool thing about coming to the show to get the information is you get to meet and get to know this amazing young woman and realize that what their interests are, they have your interests at heart. They're looking to help people. That is what drives both Patricia and her husband. Yes. Can we see your husband's name on the air?

Speaker4:
Yes, Gran Mingus. He just goes by Gran Mingus.

Speaker1:
I remember a different name that I got wrong the way I pronounce that eau de.

Speaker4:
You know what? Listen, I'm not going to get the cold shoulder after I finish this interview. We're going to leave it with Graham Mingus left to give his government name. He can do that on another time.

Speaker1:
Cool. Because I wasn't going to say it and get it wrong again, because I respect.

Speaker2:
Oh, no, it's OK. It's a subprime.

Speaker1:
And so, in addition to that, you do you have several things going on. And I wanted to also touch base on another thing you're doing as far as you are putting in as part of a package for businesses. This is for both businesses, as I understand it, and for entertainers to help promote either or both cases. So if you're an entertainer, you need to promote yourself and your your talent or your band, whatever you have, or if you're a business and you need both, they're both businesses. Let's just get that straight. That's right.

Speaker4:
Music is a business.

Speaker1:
You offer packages for folks. And as part of those packages, you've thrown in a nice little twist. I was just going to leave that to you to say that because I think this is genius is wonderful what you guys are doing.

Speaker4:
So for every package that you purchase, a portion of the proceeds goes to help us feed families as grand as entertainment group right on cue radio, we decided early on that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. And so we have as a business, we have our acts of kindness every day initiative. And the first campaign under that is our Feed the Families campaign. So we decided to start small. We are assisting in partnership with the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. So when you purchase one of your sponsorship packages or an artist promotions package, partial proceeds will go to help us put together packages that we then present to some of the families that are being serviced by the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation.

Speaker1:
That is awesome, and what I love is that it's built into your business model. It's not like an additional so if you want to also contribute, but it's part of it. So just by doing business with you guys, they're are making a difference and and you are making a difference. And thank you for both you and your husband's heart for putting something like that together. Like you said, you're starting out small. Here's the thing I love to say for especially it's almost every guest has been on my show, probably everyone. But what I what I wish for you and your husband is that you get blessed with an abundance of wealth. And the reason is because it's pretty conceivable that what you and your husband will do with additional money is scale and change more lives.

Speaker2:
Absolutely.

Speaker1:
It's so apparent that that's what drives you to. And so I hope that you are just blessed with shower, showering from the heavens, lots and lots of wealth so that you can spread what you're doing and help more families, help more organizations. Wow. That hit me. That tugged at the heart strings of child cancer or childhood cancer. That's oh, I can't imagine being a parent and going through something like that.

Speaker4:
We my husband, a very good friend of his, lost his battle a few years back. And so we you know, it's just something that, listen, we all have lost a loved one to one thing or another. So we've got to start somewhere. But we just felt like, wow, you know, especially this particular organization, because a lot of the larger organizations get more of the attention. They get more of the donations. So they are not as big as some of the others, like St. Jude's and and Susan G. Komen and all those national organizations. They're pretty vocal. So we wanted to make sure we did our part to help out. And we and you're absolutely right. Our our our acts of kindness every day initiative, we plan to expand that. We have already drafted our programs to help our our seniors, to help our veterans, to help the people that are coming out of abusive relationships and things of that nature. So we have an entire plan. It's just we had to start somewhere. So who we wanted to start with the kiddo's.

Speaker1:
I mean, you could have started with any one of those, and it's the right answer, doesn't matter which, when you start with this, the fact that you started and that's the message that I would like to impart upon everyone who might be thinking, well, I got five of them and I just can't get started. I don't know which one to go with. Pick one just to draw it out of a hat.

Speaker4:
Right, exactly.

Speaker1:
Because you wouldn't be even considering doing it unless it made an impact. Absolutely. Grab one and go take action. So you're big into helping others to promote get their name, their likeness, their brand, their image, their company, what have you out there for the world to see so that their business can thrive. And one of my favorite questions that I get to ask on this show is around. That is, what is your and your husband's what I call a sweet spot today? What is working for you right now? Because let's face it, it doesn't talk about marketing. Marketing. What used to work ten years ago doesn't always work today. And what's working today may not be working very well ten years from now. And it's always about what is working now when it comes to marketing, because it just it's a moving target for you and your business together. What have you found lately? The latest best form of marketing that has worked for your business and more importantly, for your clients to get them the exposure and everything they're looking for that you guys offer?

Speaker4:
It's actually one of the oldest ways of marketing. It's just our street team promotions, person to person interactions. Hi, how you doing? My name is Patricia with Grambling's entertainment group. This is what we do. You have a business we'd love to help. Or hey, we have a client, Brian Kelly, who's looking to increase his presence online. We would love for you to check out his show. Here's an invitation to one of his live interviews shows. Yeah, and that and it works, it's been working for my husband for the better part of 30 years, and it still works just as well. Now, even in the time of all of the cool stuff and everything else, it still works.

Speaker1:
Amazing, isn't it? And that magical word, I think, called relationships.

Speaker4:
Absolutely.

Speaker1:
I used to avoid that like the plague because I'm an automation freak. I love

Speaker2:
To do

Speaker1:
Big things with you know, I build something once and it can repeatedly do big things.

Speaker4:
I love it

Speaker1:
A lot more people. But the thing I found was automation by itself. It doesn't go anywhere. It's very difficult because especially today, relationships now are more important than ever they've always been. That's like one of the common threads through all of time when it comes to marketing. And what works is relationship building. I don't think I ever did not work right. People don't like to hear about it, me included, at the time,

Speaker2:
Because it's

Speaker1:
One at a time relation that takes that four letter word called Time to establish. And we have an instant gratification society, whether you're in the US or anywhere we can. I mean, goodness sakes, I order something on Amazon. A ding dong is practically I barely touch the button. And so we get used to that and we expect it. And then when it comes to business, we're in the same boat and it's like this I working. So I got to go on to something, just keep moving. But that's

Speaker2:
Yeah.

Speaker4:
So that's one thing I can certainly say is this. There is a concept that they talk about in the Bible, but if you are a farmer, you're going to understand this. It's called the principle of seed time and harvest. So you plant those seeds, you get out, you meet the person hand to hand, you give it a little time, you're going to reap the harvest. And guess what? You never just get one stock of corn. You know, you never just get one push of whatever flowers you're going to get many. So what happens is when you're when you're building that rapport with someone face to face, they're going to go and tell people, we met that wonderful young man and he was just awesome. He made us laugh. And you should check him out, see, so they don't just come back on their own. They come back with about four or five others. So it's it's very effective.

Speaker1:
Planting seeds, ladies and gentlemen.

Speaker2:
As we plant some bombs, some of

Speaker1:
Those seeds into what those bombs, because that is so true, all of the networking events and seminars and boot camps and all those things I went to, I made so many amazing connections and I could look back and think of several that happened seven or eight years ago that fast forward to like a year ago I was making million dollar contracts with that person because you said the word, the magic word. It's relationships. It's building rapport, establishing rapport with an individual. And you're right. You know, I this I met this gentleman a long time ago and just by happenstance ran into him again. Guess where in Las Vegas.

Speaker2:
Wow.

Speaker1:
Seminar. And I was like, oh, my God, I know. And I love this guy. And we just struck up a conversation. He then realized I was doing the show. One thing led to another. And it was just an amazing thing, all because of what Latricia's just told you. Another secret to success is, you know, we're not looking here to go make a quick kill on fast cash and then run with it. We're looking at establishing a lifelong long term business that can keep going. I'm sure, Latricia, you and your husband want to keep a legacy long.

Speaker2:
Yes. Yes, indeed.

Speaker1:
And that can't be established if you're going after the quick kill. It has to be a long term nurtured relationship, that relationship build the business foundation culture of the business, and then you can pass it on to maybe one of your adult children if they're open to it, or someone else who's ready to take the reins. When that time comes, your legacy will have been firmly planted because you guys did what it took to make sure this thing lasted.

Speaker4:
Absolutely. And the interesting thing about it is my youngest son, William, who's also an entertainer with music that we play on the network, he is working with us and learning the ropes. So you're absolutely correct. We're building that legacy team.

Speaker1:
That's going to be so fulfilling, I mean, Germany, Christmas, that would be so much I'm a big family guy and to be able to do that and have everyone kind of involved, even if I can imagine, you guys didn't push him into it. He just said, I want to do it. I can just I think, Latricia, where we separated at birth, are we just identical twins? The resemblance is uncanny already.

Speaker2:
They're like this.

Speaker1:
You're like my sister from another Mr.. There you

Speaker2:
Go. And that's

Speaker4:
Before. That's right. I'll take

Speaker2:
It.

Speaker1:
And we are the weight based on our belief system. We are brother and sister. And let's just let's everyone out there just get over this ridiculousness that's going on and just love each other.

Speaker4:
That's right.

Speaker1:
Help each other find it

Speaker4:
Cannot stand

Speaker1:
To lift each other up. And just let's all just be great humans with each other. Oh, my goodness. Man, we're getting down to it, I was just checking the time from. Oh, OK, this would be a good one. So. I'm often curious, and I can imagine that people watching and listening are curious as well, what does a typical day for Latricia Lingus look like? Like when you get up and then how long do you work and what do you do during the day? And then when you when your head hits the pillow? What happened between that time?

Speaker4:
Well, I can say that outside of my prayer time, the next part of the next piece of the puzzle is to organize my activities. I don't make a move until I have organized the activities of my day. I usually do it the day before, but sometimes things happen. So making sure that I organized the activities of my day and then it's I answer emails on my phone, I'll do that for probably about an hour or so. And then I get to the computer and it's all about doing everything that you do on the computer and three businesses here. So and just taking the priorities, you get overwhelmed if you try to do everything all at the same time. So you give priority to the things like right now we have an event that we're preparing for and promoting for on August 14th. So we're getting the artists to sign up in advance so they can come to Vegas or if they're already here locally, they can get involved and it will give them an opportunity for a PR package and and distribution through one of the subsidiaries of Sony Music. So they're going to have an opportunity to try out and see if they can qualify for that. And so we're that's August 14th. So we're in the mix for that. And then we have a November event that's happening with another venture that we're involved with where we are doing our 60 day stressless challenge. So we're promoting for that. And if you want to know anything about any of this stuff, guys, just go to Grandmama's Dotcom and send us a quick note and we'll send you all the information you want. But doing that and then we have another client that we're bringing on. So it's organized and then you take the priorities as they go. My work is no longer than six hours.

Speaker2:
Oh.

Speaker4:
Never. Well, I can't say never, but very rarely longer than six hours, and that's pushing it, it's usually between four to five.

Speaker1:
Wow. And you get a lot done in that time. How do you get so much done in such a short amount of time organization?

Speaker4:
Yes. Yes, it's prioritizing.

Speaker1:
Indeed, it is so easy to get sidetracked on a little ridiculous things. And then by the time you look up, all the day's over. And I didn't do anything on my list. But do you actually put stuff in like, say, a calendar or something as if it were an appointment that has to get done or what what do you do to make sure that your organized list gets accomplished? Is there anything beyond writing it out on a piece of paper or on a phone or somewhere else?

Speaker4:
I do. I have I send myself notes. I'm old school. I mean, with all this technology, I was getting bogged down. They have project management software and apps and all that stuff that you can use. And they're great. They're wonderful. If that's your thing. I'm an old school girl like Post-it notes and all of that. So I have my version. I create my notes the night before in the morning. I add anything that needs to be added and I email it to myself to make sure that I'm remembering it's that repetitive motion, you know, that repetitive process that reminds me, OK, these are the things that I really need to focus on and anything that is not a priority. I make sure that I put it to decide whether it's in my mind, whether it's in my documentation, whatever it is, it's always to the side so that I can strictly focus. On those things that have to get done,

Speaker1:
And I think the key for everybody listening and watching is to write it down, you don't have it either with pen or pencil or on computer, notepad, whatever you use. But I haven't. I have to do this and similar. I've got a tumulus pat on my computer. I've got to do this on my own. But I've got you know, it's all over the place, but it works for me. The point is, do what works for you. And we still have a beautiful, wonderful prize to give away. And one of the things I like I can't believe this is where at the end already, Latricia,

Speaker4:
It's going so fast and flies when you're having fun.

Speaker1:
And I'm telling you, we were separated. I was going to say that that's what happens when twins. Right. They think the same thing with the

Speaker4:
Same thing yet.

Speaker1:
So I like to always close the show with a particular question. And I know you've watched the show earlier. Oh, I've got to say hello, Prince. I big salute to both of you for all valuable information, peace and blessings. This guy is

Speaker2:
Here.

Speaker1:
I met him about seven or eight years ago and just talked to him several times since. Just a beautiful human. I love you, Prince. Thank you for coming on and saying hi. But I ask this question of each individual because it's just it's profound. I found the responses just kind of blew me away. I was like, didn't expect it. It can be a little bit personal, but not to worry, it's it's just a profound question. But before we do that, I promised those who watched live that they could enter to win a five nights stay. Five star luxury resort compliments again of the big insider secrets dotcom. And I'll put the information up on the screen for those of you watching live with us right now, all you need to do and you now have our both of our permission to take your gaze away for just a moment and enter this website, address into your phone, onto your computer, tablet, whatever you're watching on. And that addresses are wiki. I am for vacation, our WIP. I am for vacation. And all you do is you enter your information there on the form and that will officially enter you in to win this. Well, we do this every show. I was going to say this weekly prize, but it's every dog on show that we do, no matter how often we do, and because we're doing them twice this week.

Speaker1:
So that is that I hope you win. Enter that do that quickly because we're going to ask Latricia that big heavy hitting question. My goodness, there should be a drumroll for this. Maybe we'll drop some bombs. The good news with this Latricia's there's no such thing as a wrong answer to this question. It flat out does not exist. The reason is, is because it's it's it's personal because it's unique to you. That's the only way. It's personal because the only correct answer will be your answer. It can't be wrong, and the only right one is yours, because it's an interesting question that way, and I love to be able to ask this, so just know that. And if it takes you a few moments to think about it, ponder, that's fine. If you get it immediately, that's fine because it's your answer. It's unique to you. So there's absolutely zero pressure and it's actually fun because I get to be on the receiving end along along with everyone else who's watching and listening to your remarkable answer, because it's going to be yours and coming from you. It will be remarkable. We all know. So with all that buildup.

Speaker2:
Are you ready?

Speaker4:
I am ready.

Speaker1:
I knew you would be all right. Here we go. Latricia Grandmama's, how do you define. Success.

Speaker4:
That's a great question for me, success is being able to. Live your life on your terms. It is being able to roll through the challenges of life. With your mind, your body and your business intact. Success is having people you love. Success is learning the lessons of life. And not repeating the same problems that, you know, that we go through, sometimes we have to circle a few times. But success is just being able to be happy about the life that you're living in, having peace. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it's yours and live it on your terms, and I can promise that's going to feel like success does for me.

Speaker1:
And you know what's coming? Oh, my goodness. Ladies and gentlemen, we are talking to Latricia Green Mangus, the amazing, amazing young woman doing some incredible things with her business, with her husband, helping people, serving people, you know, donating to worthwhile organizations from their proceeds for their packages. Definitely get in touch with her. And on that note, Latricia, what is the go to way for folks to get in touch with you and your husband and have that conversation to take you to the next level? Because you guys are involved in so many things. I can only imagine a lot of people want to get in touch with you.

Speaker4:
It's very simple. They can fill out one of the contact forms at Grand Mingus dot com. It's going to send a notification to us to let us know that you see the button in the right, or I guess maybe that's the right court says get in touch, fill it out and let us know and we'll we'll reach back out to you. It's a lot easier when you fill in all the details so that we have. All the information to get in touch with you

Speaker1:
And you go every field, just make it required and just fill it out.

Speaker2:
Absolutely.

Speaker1:
But that'll save they'll save Latricia and her husband time and it will save you time as well. The more information you give and be clear about why you're wanting to connect with with them, as you heard many different things on this show. So help make that connection work as efficiently as possible, as quickly as possible, because let's face it, Latricia and her husband, they have they've got work to do. They've got people to serve, people to help. And they want to they want to help you as well. So be sure to reach out. You can tell I mean, come on, she's so approachable, such a wonderful human being. And I am so blessed to now be able to call you friend. And you're my sister. So we know that. But I appreciate you, Latricia. I look forward to the day where you and I meet in person along with your husband. I can't wait to meet him. Well, and keep doing what you're doing. Keep fighting this fight. You're on a great a great path, in my humble opinion. I appreciate you.

Speaker4:
Thank you. And we appreciate you as well for giving us this opportunity.

Speaker1:
My my pleasure. Oh, my goodness.

Speaker4:
Oh, what can I say? Just one quick thing. If you're interested in life coaching, you can still fill out the form there at Gramling is dot com and just say life coaching and it'll get to where it belongs. So if you're interested in that as well.

Speaker1:
Yes. And look, you can you can take advantage of Latricia's life experiences. And that's the great thing about it. That's what makes a life coach a great coach, because they've been through very likely what you're going through and can help you get good cheer. So definitely reach out to her for that as well. Good, good. All right. Well, I hate to say it, but all good things do come to an end. There's one good thing that will never come to an end, but that's a discussion for another topic, another show, both attrition. I know what we're talking about. There are many. But with that. Thank you, Latricia. You've been an absolute blessing. And that's all right. On behalf of this amazing young lady, Latricia Mingus, I am Brian Kelly, the host of The Mind Body Business Show. Until next time we'll see you again on until then. For now and blessings to all.
