Announcer:
Welcome to The MIND BODY BUSINESS Show. The three keys to your success is just moments away. Here's your host Brian Kelly.

Brian Kelly:
Hello everyone and welcome, welcome, welcome to the MIND BODY BUSINESS show. Oh, goodness, gracious, me oh my! As I like to say, we have an amazing amazing show lined up for you tonight. Our guest expert, you are going to love this person. She is an amazing woman, who has so much experience and success in the area of entrepreneurship, in branding, taking offline-to-online your business. I cannot wait to bring her on, and I will very, very soon. But first real quick the MIND BODY BUSINESS show. What is that all about? Well, in my, now, 54 years on this planet, circling the sun, I've noticed, over that time and most recently, I started focusing on just successful people, learning about successful people? What do they do? What is their - what are their habits? What are their recipes for success? What are their patterns? And that's what happened I started noticing patterns, patterns of successful people, and I thought, my goodness, if there's a pattern, and I followed that pattern i.e. modeled it - modeled them - could I also achieve success? And the answer is absolutely, yes. And it's amazing. So, did , it only takes one recipe to have to make success in your life. You can have five successful recipes to make a cake, for instance, but you really only need one. You don't need all five this one. All five are successful. If you have one recipe and that that person successful and they do with integrity and character then follow and model. So, I found these patterns, in successful people. One was mindset. They have an empowered, rock solid, positive mindset, all the way rooted down to the subconscious mind, not just the conscious mind. Very, very important. Think and Grow Rich (book written by author Napoleon Hill) is a great place to start, if you want to know what that's all about. Also neuro-linguistic programming, which is called The Science of Success NLP for short. Just over 30 years old, it's a proven science. I am also certified in that and know that it works. So, those are two great resources for you to look up and body. What I've noticed with successful people is they take care of themselves both inside and out. And that means, inside, by putting in the proper nutrition. things that fuel the body in the proper way. Nothing processed, all natural. And exercise. Get up and move. Get up and move. If your joints hurt it's not necessarily the best thing to do is not resting your joint. It's the opposite of what many tell you. It's moving, moving and strength training. But the bottom line is if you're not moving, start, just start and get moving. And that's another successful trait of entrepreneurs that are successful. And then business, business that is multifaceted. We're talking about sales, team building, marketing, systematized scaling, many different skill sets that you can learn over time. And we'll discuss really easy way to do that in just a moment. A hint is from what you see behind me on the back wall. And that is, once you master - if you just master one of these mind, boy, or business you will see profound improvements in, not only your business, but your personal life. To me, the first - the the baseline, the foundation of all success, without fail, the number one - if you were to start in any one area - would be mindset. Bar none. And that may surprise some of you. I kid you not. You could have all the skills in business and be really good at them. But if your mindset isn't straight, you're not operating what I call a "peak level of performance". Hence, the name of the company, REACH YOUR PEAK. And that's what it's all about, is helping you the viewer, the audience, the listener to REACH YOUR PEAK. And I bring on incredible experts, like the one you're about to be introduced to. Her name is Ronita Godsi. I can't wait to bring her on, again, really soon. But I just wanted to give you a brief outline of what the show's about. And concerning success and great, easy ways to learn skill sets. Right now, is by reading books. Simply reading books. And many years ago, I was given this incredible advice, by a multimillionaire, who had flown me out back east, picked me up in a limo - had me picked up in a limo. I stayed in his office. We met for two days - I didn't stay there - but we we met for two days to sign a contract. And in that time, he told me this story about one of the greatest ways to become rich, Bryan, is to simply read,and I ignored him. I flat out said, no - in my mind - no way could that be that great. I mean come on. And it's, like, just reading any books. You got that, right? It's reading the right books. And, so, with that I want to segway into a little section I appropriately named Bookmarks.

Announcer:
Bookmarks. Born to read. Bookmarks. Ready, steady, read! Bookmarks. Brought to you by ReachYourPeakLibrary.com.

Brian Kelly:
Yes, real quickly, ReachYourPeakLibrary.com, you see it next to me, and by the way, for those of you watching live, right now, or even after the recording is done and or audio on podcast, do yourself a favor and stay here with the show. In other words, continue listening, continue watching and get out a pad of paper and a pen whatever, your method is for taking notes, and take notes. So, when Ronita or I give you a resource, write it down. Do not go off and visit it, because what happens then, is you may be concentrating on that instead of what Ronita was about to say, and you could miss out on the one nugget that could propel you to super-stardom. And I kid you not. It all happens in the room quote unquote. So, stay in the room. That is my advice to you. So, ReachYourPeakLibrary.com, that is a site I put together, literally, as a gift for you, the entrepreneur, or the business person that is looking to take it to the next level. And what happened was, after I discounted that one mentor's advice, luckily, years later, I had another mentor come into my life. I ended up working with him for several years. I spoke on a stage for two of those years training his students his material. And he showed me, by example, not by words, by walking around and listening to books. And once I found out you could listen to books, I went crazy with it, because it turns, out I love listening to books far more than reading, because I would get eye fatigue and I didn't know there was a different mode to ingest this information until my mentor showed me by walking around his house, at that time, with his headphones. I'm like, "What are you doing"? He said, "I'm listening to a book". I said,"What?" And, so, I started listening, voraciously - reading, voraciously, that way. And, as I did, I started cataloging all the books that had an impact - a positive impact - on me, either through business or personally. Mostly, most of these are dealing with relatable topics of business. But, look, business is a relationship. It is still personal. There's really not a big divide between business and personal relationships because, in order to be successful in business, one must develop relationships and nurture those. And, so, I began reading these and then I would bookmark sections as I listened to them. And I just wanted to give this- put this out there - and let you know it exists. I don't charge anything above and beyond. These are links to, I think, Amazon - where they - where you can purchase the book in either physical form, Kindle form or, even, audible form, if they exist - if they're available. So, that is for you, my gift to you. If you haven't started reading, just pick one book, whichever one jumps off the page first. Don't go crazy over analyzing all of them. Grab one because, if it's there, I've read it and I vette it. I say, "It's a good book". It doesn't mean I guarantee it'll be good for you, but the odds are increased that it could be because at least one person said this had a profound effect. So, there you have it. Speaking of having profound effect, oh my goodness. Guess what time it is it is? Time to bring on our special guest expert because this show is about her, tonight, as it is every night with my special guest expert. It's not about Bryant. It's about Ronita Godsi who is coming on right now. Yes!

Announcer:
It's time for the Guest Expert Spotlight. Savvy. Skillful. Professional. Adept. Trained. Big league qualified.

Brian Kelly:
And there she is ladies and gentlemen. The one, the only, that beautiful Ronita Godsi. Yes! Welcome, welcome, welcome. How are you doing to night Ronita? Fantastic,fantastic! This is Ronita's international television debut, and she is just - look at her - she's so radiant and smiling and happy. She can't wait to get this going, and neither can I because, Ronita, I've talked to her several times, in the past, and she has a lot of value to give to you, the audience. And we're just gonna have a chat. She and I are just going to talk together. And this is the way every show goes, is where, it's two entrepreneurs having a chat. And very soon I will kind of stop talking as much as I have been and let Ronita to take over. But just before we do that, I want to quickly remind everyone that's on here, that we do have a wonderful giveaway. And for you to know how to get this wonderful prize, which is a five night stay at a five star resort in Mexico. Compliments of my good friends at PowerTexting.com. In order to know how to or how to enroll, or enter to win, stay on to the end and, we'll give you that information. All the way to the end. Fantastic. Let's bring on Ronita. I want to introduce her to you, and then we'll dive in and actually see what makes this woman so successful. Does that so good to everyone on? Good. I see the nods. I don't, but I'm just acting like I do. Ronita is an expert at branding, web development, sales, funnels, and marketing. And is the business development director of Idezzine, and that's spelled I-D-E-Z-Z-I-N-E. I thought was pretty creative, pretty clever. A company that helps businesses, from creating your unique brand messages, to designing meaningful experiences for your audience that grows your online business, Ronita is fully dedicated to helping entrepreneurs across the globe to realize their potential and to achieve success. She has helped hundreds of coaches, speakers, authors, and mentors build step-by-step, direction driven strategies so, that they reach more clients and, here it is, make more money. Because that is what really is important to entrepreneurs. Not because we're money mongers, but because the more money we make the more people we can help and serve. And there is absolutely everything right with that. With that Ronita welcome, welcome to the show. So, that was a really cool intro. That was something you wrote, and is a great - it gives people a good idea of where you're coming from, what your skills are. And what I love to do every single show is I like to dig a little deeper and get into what makes a successful person like you, I say "tick". Which means, what's going on under the hood? What is happening? And one of my favorite parts is like to open that up with is, what happens when you open up your new day - when you get up? When you wake up, you slide over, your feet hit the floor, and if you're anything like me, here, like groggy and you're coming to. And you're starting to realize that, okay, an new day is coming. And then it starts to set in. And what is that? It's the drive. It's the motivation. It's whatever it is for you, that really gets you going in the morning, to tackle the day and go out and serve more people. So for you, Ronita, specifically, what would that be? If you have one, maybe more. Either way.

Ronita Godsi:
I do. That there's something that I do every day, and I know when life starts to get a little bit challenging, the first place I'll look is if I've gotten busy in the morning and not done that. And that's, really, waking up in the morning, I have a journal where I write down, like, three pages full of what my vision for the future is, as if it's now. And I'm very visual person. So, the the the act of writing it down, really makes a difference. And, then, once I've done that - and that goes to all the areas of relationships, and clients, and money, and who I am as a person, who I show up as, in life - and, then, I'll set three intentions for the day. What do i really want to - if I look back at the end of that day - what do I want to have achieved? And then I go into gratitude of just everything that I am grateful for. Every little thing that's happened, that's happening now when I - there's just so much to focus on. So, when I start my day that way, and that's my form of meditating, I'm not very good with all the meditations that have the audios that take you through but I'm - I just get very quiet and write my gratitude's and my intentions. And that sets the day for me. And especially when, like, certain mornings, like this morning, just so happens, I woke up with lots of interesting conversations going on in my head. And to get out of that space was doing this practice and really one of the things a really long time to get. And we practiced, that is the belief that things happen for me and not to me. So, with that mindset, when we were talking from that mindset, I totally agree with you. So, that when something challenges challenges me during the day or something with one of my daughters, or something with clients,or just anything it could be. There's always, like, once I've gotten myself out of that rabbit hole, really looking like, "what is that here that's a gift. Where is the lesson. Where is the skill that I, perhaps, need to develop for the next phase of my life". And that shifts everything around. It shifts the perspective around to look at what can I do here to learn. I believe that life is, the outside is a reflection of the inside. If there's something on the outside, it's just reflecting back something that's inside of me. And where can I look in there and find the gift there.

Brian Kelly:
Wow! That was phenomenal. Phenomenal! And I'm curious, so, you talked about - you journal 3 pages. You set 3 intentions, and you go through gratitude. I'm curious, as a person, because this so deeply interests me Ronita. I love this. About how long each morning does it take you to get through that process that you just describe?

Ronita Godsi:
It takes you through... (Inaudible)

Brian Kelly:
How long?

Ronita Godsi:
20 30 minutes.

Brian Kelly:
Oh that's it. Well you write three pages in and all that in 20 to 30 minutes. You're a speed writer. I love it. And so one of the things that -I'm taking notes as we go along so, see, those that are watching listening. I don't ask you to do anything I don't do myself. Let's just put that out there. So, I love this, Ronita, because this follows another pattern of successful people. Entrepreneurs, business people, athletes, you name it. And that is, there's a couple words that come to mind. One is discipline, and a softer, more empowering word is routine. And, that, you have a routine that you do every, single morning. And you do the same - you follow same steps that the results are probably different each time. I doubt you write the exact same words three pages long each. Three intentions are probably different, maybe some overlap. And, then, gratitude is just being thankful for everything around you. And I love how you framed - things about - how things happen for me, not to me. That is so powerful. That is mindset at work, at play in Ronita's mind. And that's why she is where she is today. She's a successful entrepreneur. And for those who are watching and listening, if you don't have a routine put down, either - I've heard many I've had many entrepreneurs on the show Sunday morning. Some do it in the evening. Some do it both and do a different routine on each end.-The bottom line is, having a routine - not just to have a routine - but to have something that's empowering, that takes you farther. And for Ronita - and this is a personal process and so you may have to play around with this, for those of you watching, listening - But start with one model, one person, model Ronita. Journal one page, if three pages is too much. Set three intentions. That's pretty easy. Can you give an example of an intention? So people have a good idea.

Ronita Godsi:
I want to touch based on what we've said before. I think, when I started, my first mentors had said to me to, actually, put a timer on. And it was- I started off with two minutes. And it was just doable. It was manageable. When the thing landed two minutes, I was done. So, whatever I managed to write in that time frame, I was done. The same thing with reading. He would have me write down gratitudes for two minutes and read for two minutes. And sometimes I find that, when when my mind starts going off on negative tangents, I'll look, and I'm either not doing my my morning ritual or not reading other books. So, nonsense, not nonsense, but interesting conversations are going on. And to get back into the routine, I'll still put a time on for five minutes, and just read for five minutes so that it's bite sized pieces that I'm setting myself up for success. So, I love that you had mentioned that to people are listening. You don't have to do half an hour. There are many days that it feels overwhelming. Once I get into it, that feeling of when I'm creating, it becomes so real, that -it my whole shifts.

Brian Kelly:
Wow! Simple, yet brilliant. I kid you not. So, you've got some great advice, and I love that it brings it down to bite sized chunks. Because my first thought, three pages in 30 minutes. If I were to follow your model, I'd be, like, stressed because I don't know if I could do three pages in 30 minutes by itself. But the thing is - and that's why you make it your own - But you just said back it off. Break it off in chunks. And I love how you can just reset your day by just going back. I'm gonna just do another five minutes of reading. I've never heard this by anyone before you and this is - I love it - it's genius.

Ronita Godsi:
It's my one of my early mentors was Barry (inaudible). He was amazing. I mean, where I come from - because I came from such, no judgments on anything but just a victim mentality. So, he had me read, As a Man Thinketh,by James Allen.

Brian Kelly:
Yes.

Ronita Godsi:
Written, like, over 100 years ago. But this whole concept, that we are what we think, is so outside of the box with me I thought that I lived in this space and - that - had absolutely no single concept we could go out with that. So, one of the things that's very important to me, now, because I lived so many decades in that victim mentality. Why are things happening to me? What am I doing wrong, and all of that? Becoming one hundred percent responsible and accountable for my life regardless of what's coming in front of me. Has been a game changer that's taken years to, and still it's nowhere near perfect, but it helps getting me back on track. So,I don't stay down as long. Or I don't get off track as deeply and it's easier to bounce back. I just wanted to share that part.

Brian Kelly:
It's all brilliant because, I mean, my goodness, As a Man Thinketh. So, this is a great resource for everyone. Everyone pick up that book, As a Man Thinketh. There are a couple other books I'd like to throw on the back end of that. Think and Grow Rich, of course, is one that hits mindset pretty hard. And it starts to make it more tangible for you to use in your business. And then to take it, yet, another step to make it super, intensely tangible is Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker. That was a book I could not put down. It was just unbelievable, off the charts, amazing information. What a page turner. I would actually do it in that order, though, because As a Man Thinketh, as you said, was written a very long time ago. Think and Grow Rich was a long time ago, but not quite that long ago. And Secrets of The Millionaire Mind are pretty much based on today and very relatable to business.

Ronita Godsi:
If you're open to it there's two others that I would put in there to. The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles. Who is the precursor to Think and Grow Rich.And Creating Money: The Keys to Abundance, which I think takes all of that (inaudible) stuff, like all the Esther Hicks and all of that attraction part and breaks it down into such - it makes so much sense. That's a book that's really worth reading. That's when I'm really delving into, now, at the moment.

Brian Kelly:
Fantastic. So, and just for folks that are watching, look these are recommendations that are coming from a successful entrepreneur. If you have an account on Amazon these are things I do when I'm sitting - I'm in a seminar, and I see a speaker on stage and I see that they're successful like you Ronita, and they start giving recommendations of books - I'm on my phone, literally, buying them at that moment.

Ronita Godsi:
Yes, the same.

Brian Kelly:
And so for those who you watching listening, I implore you to do the same. Do similar things, is to just take action all the time. Get in the habit of that. As you can tell Ronita is an action taker and one of the reasons she is she is very well read and she has had mentorship and coaches Ronita you've got everything. You've got the whole package. You are where you are because of what you've done. And that is a culmination of your mindset, number one and, then, you're an action taker. There is no doubt. And because I know that because you had coaches and mentors. Many people, the ego would get in the way, "Ahh, I could do it on my own". That's just a recipe for failure, right there. But you are the opposite, and you're going to be getting better.

Ronita Godsi:
I did do it on my own in the beginning. I learned the hard way. One of the questions you had asked is, like, what would you do differently and it would absolutely be get mentors in earlier because if you can find anything that you wanted to do, someone has already done it. If you could just approach them, when they're successful, they are so happy to show you what they've done. It's paying it forward and you, literally, just have to step in their footsteps. You're going to create your own. You're not going to be a carbon copy of them, but there's such wisdom that you can glean from anyone you're talking to. So I absolutely encourage that. I learned the hard way. I would not do it that way again.

Brian Kelly:
And that's okay. I think I have not yet, myself, met one, Ronita, entrepreneur that's made success that didn't start out trying to figure it out on their own. I get it. It's rare, but what I love, the message you're giving right now, is do it sooner rather than later. If you, when you start, if you're doing it on your own, it's not if but when you'll begin struggling, which will be very quickly and just be in recognition of that. Be aware of that, and then find the help and, you know what. You have a connection right now, right here. Reach out to Ronita and say Ronita,"Do you have any recommendations of people I could hook up with and model and or hire as a coach or a mentor that you have done?" You can reach out to me. You can reach out to any of us. Because like Ronita so properly stated, these people want to help you. They can't wait to share with you how they became successful and guess what the way they became successful was that they modeled someone else, too. It's amazing. So why reinvent the wheel? Why go through that struggle? Very powerful message Ronita. So thank you so much for bringing that to the front. Very, very powerful. So, I can tell you're a very avid reader so, are you reading a book right now?

Ronita Godsi:
I'm actually really focused on the Creating Money: The Keys to Abundance one and The Hero With a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell's work. I find just fascinating. I'm always fascinated and you had mentioned that in the beginning how what makes people who they are and the perspectives that they have, getting into their shoes and understanding it. Because if you can do that and you can shift it for them one percent you change the whole trajectory of their life. And there's just so much you can - I can learn from talking to people and understanding their model of the world. So, that's that's a big one for me.

Brian Kelly:
And in neuro-linguistic programming, we call that the I-R internal representation. And it's a fascinating topic and it makes nothing but sense and what you just said was absolutely on point. If you could understand what they're their thought processes are, their patterns, and how they react to certain things, you can communicate more effectively with them because they will understand you better if you know how to speak to them. And that covers business. That also covers personal relationships. So it's a -

Ronita Godsi:
Absolutely. I mean even just being a mom of four girls - being able to- And it took me til child number four to get this one. They see their world their way. And all, I think, everybody really, what they want at the heart of it, is to be heard and understood and acknowledged. It doesn't matter whether you see the world differently. I think once you're able to do that, they can take a breath and then there's space in them to hear another perspective, that you don't have to agree, but that was a very interesting lesson to learn as a parent that bled over into everything else. And all my all my relationships with people.

Brian Kelly:
Yeah, our reality is a culmination of our experiences and our learnings we're growing up and everything combined, going through. And no two people's realities are identical. And, so, there is no such thing as a single reality. Everyone has their own. And that's kind of a mind-blowing concept in its own right, but it's so true. If you think about it. I mean, you could have two people go to a wonderful event, maybe go back to college, a great party. And two two guys go to the same exact party. They are standing side-by-side and experiencing and seeing and listening to the whole thing. They get done. One guy says, "Man, that was a phenomenal party. Oh my gosh the music was great. There were so many beautiful people. How did you like that?" The other guy having experience the same exact thing says, "It was horrible! What are you talking about? The air conditioner, it was too cold in there. It was too loud, and that person annoyed me - that one that was talking to both of us ..." It's just amazing how two people can have a total different reality from the same exact experience, and they could be standing, literally, side-by-side. So, very, very own point. So, there's a lot ...

Ronita Godsi:
I wanted to go back to something that you had asked before about giving tips to entrepreneurs, and I wanted to share something else that one of my mentors, Ken Courtright, incredible gentleman, owns the Income Store. He has a podcast that's on. Just brilliant, brilliant information! And a few years into my business maybe like six or seven years ago. We've been doing this for about fifteen years, now. He said, "Take what you do and look for other people who are serving the same clients and coollaborate". There's plenty for everyone but when you collaborate together you are serving that client so much better, that it becomes a win-win for everyone and that's how I built my team over the years. I just wanted to put that out there, as well.

I think that's a golden nugget. It's powerful because so many are in the competition mindset and it's amazing how it doesn't take much for two individuals as businesses to be different. Very little. And the cool thing is if you're both - if you're both going after say the same exact client it turns out that that client will probably, only, want to work with one of you. And if they didn't have both of you in front of them, and you weren't the one they chose, and you were the one talking to them then they'll have nobody to work with and so you're doing the person a service by bringing more talent in front of them. And someone that matches their needs in a better way. Or maybe they just feel better with one of you versus the other. You could be the greatest person, most friendly - and you get that, right? - That personalities, we are attracted to different people, for different reasons. And when you do that, though, and you're lucky - that's an abundance attitude, right Ronita? it's not a scarcity mindset at all. - And when you do that there are a lot of people in this world, there are many people to sell to. And when you do a collaborative approach, you're just opening up, not only the possibility to get more clients for both of you, but you're opening your mind to the openness of abundance versus scarcity. Thank you. A great, great tip. I wrote a note. Collaborate. Yes. That was the other thing, joint venture partnering. If you don't - if you're just starting, and you don't have say a monster list like an email list or a big following on social media then start following someone like you said, Ronita, that's somewhat in a similar niche, and then see what you can do to help them. Reach out to them. Offer them help. Offer to give a shout-out to the next, upcoming event. Be someone of service. Give them value. And then ask, "Hey, is there any way I can work with you or learn from you?" Always ask and just be professional about it and and be helpful along the way. It doesn't matter how much money someone makes. They still need help.

Ronita Godsi:
I love what you said because it's, I think, taking the time to understand like whoever that mentor is that you want to work with and understand what they do and really take the time to see where you think that there's a gap, that you could offer contribution to and offer that to them, that's phenomenal. That's a heart-centered place to come from. That only comes back to you many fold. It may not come from that particular person, but you'll see it come back from other places. So, I love what you just said.

Brian Kelly:
along those lines, what I learned was,find out do some research on that person. Get to know them as much as you can. And now it's easier than ever with social media. Assuming they're active on it. And find out what their charities are. And make sure they're in alignment with you. I mean, you don't want to just be false about it. And, then, maybe donate time or even money toward it. And you'll have that thing in common, when you do make that personal introduction, and it will go that much smoother. But be genuine about it. Be authentic, is my advice. Just like Ronita is. Look at her. Can you tell? This is one authentic integrity-filled, character-based woman. And I'm so happy to have her on this show because that's all I have on this show are people like Ronita. They're superstars, in every way, and every step of the way and you can tell why. She's got it all. She's got the whole package! She's got mind, she's got a body, and she's got business. All of it. All in one package. Definitely is very skilled.

Ronita Godsi:
It's a constant day prose. I don't think you get to any place where you just stop. You'll slowly die inside you. There's always more (inaudible). Like doing this today. It's so outside my comfort zone, but this is important for me because is definitely not something I would do.

Brian Kelly:
And, you know what, I'm going to tell you right now. You're a natural. I mean I know there's stuff going on inside, but you're an absolute natural. And this is just the first of many. Watch for Ronita. The world premiere of Ronita's interview show coming up soon, near you, because this is just a spark. And what a great example you're setting Ronita, in all seriousness, that you're, actually, stepping out of your comfort zone. I know that, personally. And isn't that one of the recipes for success, is to do that? Cognitively, on purpose, over and over and over. And you did it because you knew you knew that this would be good for you. You just knew that. And the subconscious tells you, "it's good. Do it". The conscience is saying, "Yeah, but, dang it I'm nervous. I don't want to be in front of people right now". Or whatever the thing might be. The thing is, you listened to the subconscious and it won out and because of that you are going to win out, even farther, each and every time you do this.

Ronita Godsi:
I've got to say that I had another- I've been very, very blessed with incredible mentors and coaches in my life - and one of them David Corbin said to me your comfort zone is really your coffin zone and it just really landed.

Brian Kelly:
Oooh.Oooh.

Ronita Godsi:
I'm just like, "oh my gosh. I didn't like that". So, it gave me a little bit of courage to push through it.

Brian Kelly:
I am writing that one down. That is awesome. "Your comfort zone is your coffin zone". Wow. Wow. I've never heard that before. Did he coined that phrase?

Ronita Godsi:
I don't know. But he'd say it. David Corbin. Incredible gentleman.

Brian Kelly:
I'll get the spelling of the name from you later because I want to give him credit. Corbin gotcha. Awesome. Thank you David and thank you for sharing that, Ronita. That's another incredible nugget. My goodness, you're full of nuggets tonight. I love it. Golden nuggets, we have. So, as you go on in business, as we all know, being entrepreneurs, doing this every day, it's really, really simple to be successful, right?

Ronita Godsi:
Ronita laughs.

Brian Kelly:
Exactly. And it takes struggle, it takes, like you said repetition. If we did ever reach that point, that you kind of describe, that you don't just get to a point you stop, but what if you ever did. What if you got to that absolute pinnacle of success, you could go no farther. Personally, I would be bored out of my gourd.

Ronita Godsi:
I think you ever get there, I think that's the sign for you to start another path and put a ladder up against another building.

Brian Kelly:
Exactly.

Ronita Godsi:
Going back to what you said about how difficult it is. For me it's almost like three things that are important, like taking 100 percent accountability to whatever is happening. Whether it's a challenge in the business. This is a phrase that someone said to me once that, "communication is the response that get". So, if your response from somebody is coming back and it's not what you won. Look first at you and how you're communicating, whatever it is. So now that was very - That was a mind shift for me. I think being present and having - that's why that journaling for me in the morning and reminding myself what I'm doing this for and where I'm going to is really important. Which Lipton talks about. When you're inspired by something, it's not a place to get, to but it's a place to come from because the fact that you have that desire within you, I believe, is divinely inspired. It's yours. And if you have that desire within you to create, whatever business you're in as an entrepreneur, then there's the wherewithal, all around you, and the people and the resources that need. Like Napoleon Hill talks about, you just have to take action and start moving forward and keep your eyes focused on that clarity of what you are doing and your why. I think if you don't have your why, you mentioned before about just making money and, yes, making money is absolutely important because you can do so much good with it. But your why is so important. And there are times where I don't want to do something and it takes effort to remember what that why is that promise I made at that time to step into all of this. So, I think that's very important.

Brian Kelly:
So Ronita has given everyone, in this short amount of time, just about everything we teach her - what I used to teach from stage, on a two day live event. It's just amazing. Every time you say something else, Ronita, it's another amazing, very attainable, achievable, learning segment. You keep talking about being accountable. And, yeah, I mean that's like - we call - that being at cause. same thing. Where, if something happened, it happened for me, not to me. And use that kind of mindset, and then say, "Well, whatever did happen, I wonder if in any possible way that was somehow, one shred of a way, I could be partially responsible for that particular thing happening". I mean, we train, all the things you're talking about. It's phenomenal. Communication is the response that you get. That's so true. It's on you. If you're at (inaudible). So, here's a great one, like, Ronita, how many times have you gone to a public event where there are business people around, and you see business cards being exchanged left and right? Right? And how many times - have you ever had someone just come up, and come out, and reach out with a card without even saying hello first? Like, here's my card. Take it. Yes. Yeah? that's like, and what does that make you feel like? Like, get away from me. What are you doing? I didn't ask for your card. I didn't even know who you are. And so, along the lines of communication, I don't carry business cards anymore because of what I learn and train. And if you do carry business cards, the rule to follow that makes it so powerful, what Ronita just said is don't give a card to anyone unless they ask you for it. That means you then did communicate and you have something of value that they want. That's because they're asking for your card. Someone will just say hey give me your card. I'll give you mine. That's that's a different thing. But you know what I'm saying there. So, communication is a response you get so spot on. And the cool thing is, look, if someone doesn't ask you for your card, great. Move on to the next person. They're not a fit anyway. It's OK. Not every single person you run into is going to be a business prospect.

Ronita Godsi:
They're not. But I take a slightly different approach on that. It's like, I really believe at this point that whoever's in front of me, there's a purpose for it. I mean looking back and especially working with so many coaches and mentors and just seeing the journey that they've taken. Looking back it's much easier to see nothing happens randomly. Everything is, I believe, divinely put, and intricately put together, for you. For you to grow and expand. So, if somebody is in front of me, there's either a lesson I can learn from them, or there's something that I can say to them that's just going to plant a seed. So, no one walks away not feeling better for having had that contact with you. It's not always about who's my next client. I don't believe that's how business - when I've been successful in business - it's not been based on that.It's been based on real - building real relationships with people, one conversation at a time. Even when you scale online, it's based on one conversation at a time that you've perfected offline, first, because the online is only going to scale whatever you've managed to achieve offline.

Brian Kelly:
Absolutely. Yeah. And that is as well said. Beautifully said. And that shows me what a servant's heart you have, Ronita. You are one of - I won't say rare - but one of the hot, one of the smaller percentage of people that I run into that really gets it, when it comes to being one that is there to serve first. I'm not in it for me. I'm not in it for gain. Yes. Ultimately that's what we need and what. But when you go at it with the servant heart and say I'm here to - how can I help you? Instead of vomiting all over them about what you do when you walk up to talk to somebody, it's like, "Hey how are you doing.? And tell me what you do and maybe I can figure out how I can serve you, going forward and help you". Yeah. Gold. Hoo hoo! I love it. I love it. OK. So, going along the line of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Like I said, it was super easy to become successful, we all know that. I'm kidding of course. And along the way, though, some things have to take a backseat in your life for you to achieve that success because a level of commitment must be all in, or it doesn't happen. So, for you, personally, and I don't know if the word sacrifices is a good word, but we'll go with that for now and you can rephrase it if you like. But what sacrifices have you had to make, so far, on your road to becoming a successful entrepreneur.

Ronita Godsi:
I've always been an entrepreneur of sorts. Ever since I was a teen and I've been single mom for a long, long time. And I worked in corporate for a little bit,and that was hard. My lunch hour was taken to go pick up the girls from school, take them home, and come back to work. And, then, when I decided that I just couldn't - I am very much a free spirit and independent and I just I wanted to just branch out on my own. I remember sitting with girls down and just saying, "look I am not quite sure how this is gonna work but I'll do whatever it takes. I was holding down three, four different jobs, just to make ends meet. There was - so you're talking about sacrifice. Sacrifice of time. Sleep. Being there for the girls. It was not easy, not pretty. There's fall out all the time, but I am so incredibly grateful to be where I am today and have an opportunity to spend more time with them, one-on-one. And it doesn't make up for everything that's happened in the past, but just for them to know how much I love them. They really took the brunt, at times, of what it took to build that business. And it was tough. It's not easy.

Brian Kelly:
And I know for a fact that they're going to look back on this and be so grateful for you and everything you've done. And it's difficult. And the thing I like to say is the past is the past. It's still in our mind. But the cool thing is we can now focus on what is ahead of us. And then your kids are just going to - if they haven't already expressed it - they're just going to,so,thank you.

Ronita Godsi:
It's been an interesting journey to get to here. So, it's not, it's not easy. It's not for the faint of heart. I think the key to me is remembering my why. And that fuels me on times at tough, and when I set myself up for success - whatever you routines are whatever you need as a human being, to stay centered and to stay present. And to set yourself up for success. Whatever it takes. If it's trial and error. And it may shift and change and evolve over time. But you're your own best advocate to create that business because I think people want to do business with people. And it's who you are, energetically, that the resonate with.

Brian Kelly:
Well said. And on the topic of finding your why. For those that may not understand that beyond what we've just talked about is, it's finding that one thing that, so you started a business. You're passionate about it. You're excited. You're enthusiastic, emotionally charged and, then, you're going to start realizing, but this is still work. And when the work hits and when you have days where you don't make sales. And you have days that are bad. And you have clients that leave. This stuff happens and that can that can etch away at your emotion, at your charge, at your drive. And what Ronita is saying is if your why is solid, what that why is something that you can go back to and say, "I will never quit. No matter what. Because of this why. This is what keeps me going. And for each individual, it's unique. it's a personal thing. For me it is my wife, My wife is my why. I do everything with her in my mind, and I will not ever give up in achieving even greater success because I want to live an even more empowered, loving than - I don't know how it could be even more than it is today because I'm so blessed as well, but I know it can because I always get surprises but - she keeps me driven. Without saying a word because she is my why. I went through a process. And your way might be your kids. It might be something else, might be a charitable organization, might be something that just is that thing that you would do anything, I mean anything, maybe even lay down your life for that why. And then go back and say, well, because of that why, I'm going to continue doing what I'm doing and become successful because when I become successful I can now empower and further nurture that why. So I just want to expand on that a little bit.

Ronita Godsi:
I'm glad you did. I wanted to just add a little bit on to that. Speaking, just I love speaking to people and trying to understand world why is it so much wisdom than that. And it's invariably - not always - but invariably it is born out of a difficulty that they've gone through. Whatever their wound is, that ends up being what they cannot not do for someone else because they wanted it so much for them. So, just as a little flag pole with you you're having a hard time finding your why.

Brian Kelly:
Love that. Love that. Now, for those watching, everyone watching, by now they know they want to work with you Ronita. I know it because you have -

Ronita Godsi:
I might not be a match for them. I don't know. Until we've had a conversation.

Brian Kelly:
No. But but based on everything you've said and how you go about your life and where you are today. The experiences you've had. What you've overcome. Your mindset. The fact that you're a serving heart. Everything put together, I can't go through it all again, right now. It's a full package. I know there are many, many people that would love to connect with you, to see what exactly is it you do, and how can you help them. So, if you don't mind I want to give you the floor and just say what is it you're looking for. Who is your - Who is your avatar? Who is your perfect client? Who are you looking to help and serve? And how can you help them?

Ronita Godsi:
Well, I love working, it's actually a privilege to work with the smaller entrepreneurs who have the gift or the talent out of their own roots, but they have a gift that they want to share. And by the time they come to me or to we connect, they are so frustrated and overwhelmed because they are trying to fit their business into a model that somebody else has given them. And you can't fit that square peg into that round hole. It doesn't work. So being able to step in and give them the support that they want and that they need, I'm a huge believer in hiring up their weaknesses and have done that with my own team. And that's it's challenging at times to do. But being able to free yourself from things that are draining you and focusing on, on what that gift is. And the gift of being able to see that light come back on in their eyes, when they when there's someone there holding space for them and believing in them is huge. So really stepping in and looking at where are they in their business now. What do they want to scale online. Many times it's, it's premature because the online is only going to magnify what you are offline, and if you haven't perfected that, yet, offline, that's where we step in first. Not just me but the whole team and helping you articulate what it is you do and getting that feedbac, going through that feedback learning curve. Once you've perfected that then taking it and scaling it online so that you reach more people is, is pretty easy to do. It's technology and and taking your gift and automating it and systemizing it and duplicating it. So, that's easier to do. The hard part is really understanding who you are in your business, and what it is you offer and why it's so important. I think if you think about how many times we as entrepreneurs just like I wish I could find X Y and Z person to come in and help me. There are people asking for that with your particular whatever your gift is they are asking for you to show up in their life. So it's helping entrepreneurs who have a a service or a product that truly touches another person's life. Those are the people that I'm looking for and they have to be heart centered, coachable, action takers,take a hundred percent responsible - have some success already. It's very hard to scale if you have not had success already. So, by success I mean, have eight to 10 clients - paid or not paid - doesn't matter so much, but eight to 10 clients that you have served successfully because, whether you know it or not, there's a system and a process that you used inately and intuitively and, then, that's our job to take that and then break it down, automate it, and systemize it so that you can go on line with that.

Brian Kelly:
That's an amazing service you offer. My goodness I could have used your service about seven years ago. I recently transitioned complete, 100 percent transitioned from a fitness based business into an online automation and marketing, branding business. Basically an entrepreneur training company, now. And instead of personal training, now, it's actually entrepreneur business training. And I didn't realize my passion and my gifts, that you are describing, like how you extract that, until just, literally, about three months ago and have been doing a complete rewrite of the business model and strategy and loving every minute of it. I now found my core competency, and I love doing what I do. And it's been a great way to reset, but seven years ago would've been nicer, if I had known Ronita Godsi I would have been ... That's OK. I don't look in the past and go crying over spilt milk. Never do that. Those experiences I went through for seven years have done nothing but empower me for what I'm doing now. And I look at all the great things I learned the struggles I went through. They're there for a purpose, like you're saying, when you meet somebody,there's a reason why that happened.

Ronita Godsi:
I'll give you just a little - unfortunately there was all sorts of abuse in the marriage, but one of the things that I - the gift the real gift to me in that, was being able to listen so deeply to what was not being said. So, when I talk to people it's just like zooms in to where, what they're not saying, that I can pick up on and just show them back and kind of give them just clarity on that. So, anything your biggest adversities, there's absolutely a gift in that. It's not done to hurt you. It's done to -there's a gift or skill that you have there to polish.

Brian Kelly:
Fantastic! Fantastic! And this happens every single show Ronita. We are near the end. Did you know that? Just like that, poof, already. There is one more question, and this is a question that I like to ask every single guest expert that's been on the show, and it's truly remarkable because of the answers I've gotten to date. And you're gonna love it. Before we get into that I don't want to forget. I need to remind everyone that, right now, I will give you the information on how you can enter to win that five night stay at a five star luxury resort in Mexico. Compliments of PowerTexting.com, and I'll bring up the information on the screen right now. If you're watching live you can see that there are two ways to enter if you want to use your phone and text - use that way - that's quicker and easier for you,then go and do that. Or you can go to this Website. The TheMindBodyBusionessShow.com/Vacation. Yes, it's a lot to type. I get it. Open up a new tab. Go ahead and do this right now.

I can't wait to give away - I give away a trip every single show and I love doing that because it's just fun to give isn't it, Ronita. It is just fun. And now for that wonderful, game changing question that - The beautiful thing about this question is there is no such thing as a wrong answer. It's impossible. And in fact it's just the opposite. The only, the only correct answer is whatever your answer is because it's kind of personal. It's not deep personal, but it means something different to nearly everybody. And on that I will say not one that, I should say not two past guest experts no two have answered it exactly the same way. Yet. I'm kind of blown away by that. And it's neat. It's awesome because it's it's personal in that way. And that just goes to show and prove there is no such thing as a wrong answer. And the only right answer is yours. So are you ready.? It's gonna be fun.

Ronita Godsi:
OK.

Brian Kelly:
She's ready I said I love it. No pressure, whatsoever, it's your answer. It's yours. It's just unique to Ronits. And I know it's going to come to you very quickly. Ronita, how do you define success?

Ronita Godsi:
Oh um. I think feeling fulfilled inside feeling like I've touch the life doesn't really match with its one or a thousand or a hundred or a million. Just being able to touch the person's life in front of me. That, to me, is success.

Brian Kelly:
And true to form, true to form once again, unique. No one else has ever answered it that way. I love what I get to do and what I'm going to do is I'm, literally, going to compile a book with all of these incredible answers, yours included. And I will reach out to each of you personally to get your permission to do so. And that was a a profound answer. I have to tell you. You know the fact that you said, just to know that I've touched a life. And I'm not talking about ten, a hundred, a million, just the one in front of me and that's taught, that just epitomizes how you live in the present, and how you are there for that person when it's that person that is in front of you. And another reason why I like you so much, love you so much and that you're on this show helping everyone to learn what it's like, what it is to become a successful entrepreneur. So thank you so much for that. And we're not done with the gift giving, yet, because this young lady right here also has a gift for you, and I would like to bring it up on the screen right now and let Ronita take it away and let you know what she is going to gift you, tonight, as well. So, take it away, Ronita.

Ronita Godsi:
Thank you and my gift, whoever is open to it, just a two hour conversation. Let's get on a conversation and just see where you're at and what you're looking to achieve and if I can give you some insights into what might be, what path you could take and connect you with resources that will help you get there.
