Description

As the world goes more virtual, it’s more and more difficult to keep making friends as adults —especially if you want friends who will bring energy to your life instead of drain it, friends with whom you can be honest, friends who have your best interest at heart, and ultimately, friends who turn you into a better version of yourself. If you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with, then making friends is the number one self-development activity you can master. After 800 episodes of the top-rated business podcast Build Your Network, Travis Chappell learned that networking is really the same thing as just making friends with people. In this newly rebranded show, Travis Makes Friends, it’s Travis’ goal to simply give listeners like you a chance to get to know world-class performers who can help you become a better version of yourself and share his connection secrets in the process. If you want friends that push you to be better, then subscribe to the show and join Travis as he has conversations with world-class athletes like Shaquille O’Neal, entertainers like Rob Dyrdek, authors like Dr. Nicole LePera, former presidents like Vicente Fox, or even the occasional FBI hostage negotiator, billionaire real estate mogul, polarizing political figure, or controversial social media influencer. It’s time to stop networking and start making better friends.

Today I'm making friends with Greg Mohr –  who has helped hundreds of people invest in a few hundred franchise units.** What I Discuss with Greg:– Getting his start in the fast food industry– Most underrated franchises to invest in– Common misconceptions about owning a franchise– What industries are truly recession proof– and more** (Psst... Before I tell you more about the guest, do you like this show? Please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts — even one sentence helps! 🙂)** About Greg MohrGreg Mohr started his work life in the restaurant industry. His first impression of franchising came straight out of high school, at a fast-food restaurant chain. He later managed a twenty-four-hour restaurant—another chain outlet but not a franchise. Seventeen years of restaurant management flew by before he earned degrees in electrical engineering and physics and became an engineer.Greg climbed the corporate ladder, working in the semiconductor industry for about fifteen years. During this time, he earned an MBA specializing in management information systems. Doing so did not speed up his pace of climbing the ladder, as he had hoped. In the meantime, inspired by many business books, including Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad, Poor Dad series, Greg purchased rental properties and found that he could manage them on the side while keeping his day job. As he loves to share, Greg eventually found himself laid off, and it was a blessing. He saw an opportunity and knew it was now or never. After working with a franchise consultant, he found a great fit after narrowing down his goals and criteria. He never looked back.Greg has helped hundreds of people invest in a few hundred franchise units.

Noah Kagan (@noahkagan) is the founder and Chief Sumo at AppSumo.com, a company that provides tools and content to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses. Under Noah's leadership, AppSumo has grown to over $10 million in annual revenue. Before starting AppSumo, Noah held key roles at two of tech's fastest-growing companies. He was employee #30 at Facebook, where he worked directly with Mark Zuckerberg to build their advertising platform. He then became the 4th employee at Mint.com, the popular online personal finance company that Intuit acquired for $170 million. A self-described "taco-loving" entrepreneur, Noah draws on his experiences building and scaling multiple eight-figure internet companies to help and inspire other entrepreneurs. As Chief Sumo at AppSumo, he pushes the boundaries of what's possible in business, marketing, and personal development. He’s also the author of Million Dollar Weekend, a comprehensive guide on how to take action and build the business (and life) of your dreams. Noah's journey from Facebook and Mint.com to leading AppSumo provides unique insights and lessons for any entrepreneur looking to start, build, or grow their own business. What Travis and Noah discussed: Take action even if you don't have full clarity yet. In the absence of clarity, take action anyway to gain more clarity. By taking small actions, you'll get feedback that helps validate or invalidate ideas faster. This allows you to fail fast and learn. Surround yourself with people smarter than you. Connect with smart people early on before they get really big. This allows you to more easily build relationships that can pay dividends down the road. Start small, test quickly. You can start a business over a weekend without spending much money. Validate your idea by getting real customer feedback fast before investing more time and money in building out a bigger vision. Keep trying new ideas. Successful entrepreneurs try many different business ideas, most of which may fail before they find success. By continually trying new ideas and using the feedback, you get better at executing. There are big risks in not being an entrepreneur, including not having control over your schedule and life. As an entrepreneur, you design your ideal life. Even if you don't become a millionaire, you can create a business that gives you more freedom. This was an insightful conversation with Noah Kagan, a successful entrepreneur who built a $80 million per year business after being let go from Facebook. He shares his journey of trying over a dozen different business ideas that failed before finding his big success. Noah reveals that you don't need a lot of money or time to start a business that can change your life, anyone can do it over a weekend. Listen to this full Travis Makes Friends episode to get all the details on Noah's weekend business launch framework.

Dana Cornell (cornellcapitalholdings.com) is a financial expert with over 20 years of experience advising clients. Formerly an Executive Director at Morgan Stanley, he is now a Forbes-recognized financial consultant running his practice. He focuses on helping individuals, small business owners, and working professionals develop customized passive income and wealth accumulation strategies leveraging commercial real estate opportunities. In addition to being a Certified Financial PlannerTM professional, Cornell has also earned the Certified Investment Management AnalystTM designation. He leverages his extensive expertise to create tailored plans to help his clients achieve their financial goals. What Dana and Travis discussed: The real formula for building wealth is to buy cash flow, don't pay taxes, and don't lose money. Look at investing in commercial real estate and small businesses to generate cash flow. There are different types of equity - preferred equity sits lower on the risk scale than pure equity as there is more protection. Understand the differences to make informed investment decisions. Commercial real estate is likely heading towards trouble due to economic policies, rising interest rates, tightening bank lending, and excessive debt loads. Tread carefully when investing here. The ultra-wealthy diversify their income streams across real estate, small businesses, and liquid assets rather than relying on a single source. Build multiple income streams for stability. The traditional retirement planning approach of saving and projecting into the future often fails. Instead, focus on buying back your time now through passive income opportunities. Learn directly from 20+ years of financial services expertise, gain specific commercial real estate and alternative investing advice, and shift your mindset from traditional retirement planning to prioritizing buying back your time today. Dana Cornell provides a wealth of practical knowledge that can transform how savvy individuals approach investing and wealth creation.

Alex Neist (@alexneist), an ex-Arena Football League quarterback and coach, transitioned from sports to entrepreneurship as the founder and CEO of Hostage Tape, a company focused on improving sleep quality. His journey in business was inspired by his parents' encouragement, the principles of Stoicism, and key insights from authors like Chris Voss and Robert Cialdini. Neist values emotional intelligence, effective communication, and the art of negotiation in both his personal and professional life. Under his leadership, Hostage Tape emphasizes the importance of detail in product development and marketing, learning from early challenges in manufacturing and advertising. Neist believes in giving his team autonomy and continuously seeks to improve through lessons learned from books like Voss's "Never Split the Difference."  His approach to building a strong network involves creating desirable products and reaching out to influential individuals. Neist trusts his instincts for business pivots and stays motivated by viewing challenges as opportunities for growth. What Alex and Travis discussed: Mouth breathing can significantly impact sleep quality and health. Alex went down a "rabbit hole" researching ways to address his snoring and poor sleep, eventually discovering mouth taping. This simple technique helped transform his sleep and energy levels. Building a successful business takes time and perseverance. Alex spent 16 years building his first company through constant failures and learning. This grit prepared him for the meteoric growth of his newest venture. Success is rarely overnight. Surrounding yourself with people on the path you want to be on is crucial. Alex  stresses finding mentors and examples that exemplify your vision and values rather than listening to naysayers without relevant experience. We become like those we surround ourselves with. Delegating tasks and responsibilities is key as a business scales. As Alex's company grew quickly, he focused on letting go of control by empowering his team to take on more. Learning to delegate instead of doing everything yourself is vital. Small problems can snowball into relationship breakdowns if not addressed. Something as simple as loud snoring compounded over the years for Alex, driving his wife out of their bedroom. This was a catalyst leading to their separation and divorce. We must proactively work on the small issues. This was a wide-ranging, vulnerable conversation with much to learn. Be sure to listen to the full Travis Makes Friends podcast episode with Alex Neist to hear the context behind these insights.

Wylie McGraw (@wyliemcgraw) is a former star athlete and 3-tour combat veteran who has become a high-performance coach to CEOs, entrepreneurs, and public figures. Named a "secret weapon" by influential leaders, his work provides an elite edge by ending stress and sustaining peak performance. With a reputation as a direct and honest mentor, Wylie has developed principles to unleash untapped potential and achieve self-mastery. His combat experience gives him unique insights into overcoming obstacles and advancing personal growth. Wylie operates on the belief that with the right radical intervention, anyone can reach their fullest potential. He has worked with influential leaders such as Will Smith, Elon Musk, Kanye West, and he is the host of the Wise Words & Whiskey Podcast What Travis and Wylie discussed:  Sports and athletics at a young age teach important lessons about self-awareness, working hard towards goals, handling adversity, and being part of a team. Getting kids involved can expand their capacity for performance in other areas of life. The personal development industry often sells a "hamster wheel" of programs and gurus rather than helping people truly find themselves. It's important to discern what works for you rather than getting caught up in the marketing hype. True high-performance coaching is about building relationships, asking the hard questions, and pushing people beyond their self-imposed limits - not just trying to make money. Coaches should focus on transformational results rather than numbers. Leaving every relationship better than you found it, even small gestures like an introduction or book recommendation, pays off exponentially in the long run through expanding your network and opportunities. On his podcast "Wise Words & Whiskey," Wiley has authentic conversations about life and performance over a nice bottle of whiskey matched to each guest. It's a chance to gain wisdom in a casual environment. This was an insightful conversation about living life on your own terms and the difference between surface-level coaching and truly transformational work. Listen to the full discussion with Wiley on the Travis Makes Friends podcast to hear more of his unique perspectives.

Thais Gibson (@thepersonaldevelopmentschool) is an acclaimed personal development leader and counselor known for her pioneering work on the subconscious mind and attachment theory. With over 38 million views across her platforms, Thais has helped thousands transform limiting beliefs and behaviors through her integrated attachment theory model. This expansion on traditional attachment theory empowers the healing of different life attachments to enable personal growth. Thais founded The Personal Development School, offering acclaimed courses based on her academic training and in-depth client research. She is certified in over 13 modalities, including CBT and NLP, with a Ph.D. in the field. What Travis and Thais discussed: Going through hardship and pain can be extremely valuable. As Thais said, the hardest times of her life taught her the most important lessons. Embracing and learning from adversity makes us stronger. Understanding the subconscious mind is key to personal growth. Our subconscious drives up to 95-97% of our behaviors, yet most people focus solely on the conscious mind. We must reprogram limiting subconscious beliefs that hold us back. We are all wired for connection and suffer in its absence. Thais noticed that many of her affluent clients created unnecessary problems due to a lack of fulfillment. Seeking genuine bonds with others provides meaning. Food and the environment affect mental health more than most realize. Poor nutrition and societal divisions breed widespread issues. Taking control of our health and thinking for ourselves is essential. We must align conscious goals with subconscious needs to achieve them. Self-sabotage happens when conscious desires conflict with subconscious priorities. Identifying core needs and limiting beliefs allows us to remove inner resistance. This thought-provoking discussion was about overcoming hardship, mastering the mind, the need for connection, societal issues, and achieving goals.

Dr. Aditi Nerurkar (@draditinerurkar) is a physician and public health expert who specializes in stress management, resilience, burnout, and mental health. She currently serves as Co-Director of the Harvard Medical School Clerkship in Community Engagement and formerly was medical director of a Harvard integrative medicine program. Her research has been published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, and she is a frequent medical commentator for MSNBC and NBC News. Dr. Nerurkar has worked extensively in global public health, including on HIV/AIDS and refugee health projects in Africa. She is the author of The Five Resets, a book on rewiring your brain to manage stress. An internationally recognized speaker, she has given talks at major conferences and corporations on building resilience. Dr. Nerurkar aims to provide science-backed strategies to help people thrive in the face of modern stressors. She also co-hosts the Time Out podcast produced by iHeartmedia and Hello Sunshine.  What Travis and Dr. Aditi discussed: Stress is unavoidable, but we can rewire our brains to manage it in a healthy way. Dr. Nerurkar explains how techniques like mindfulness and neuroplasticity can strengthen neural pathways to activate the prefrontal cortex instead of the stress-response amygdala. This allows us to thrive rather than just survive. Know yourself and walk your own path. Travis emphasizes the importance of self-discovery, following your intuition, and being true to yourself rather than conforming to others' expectations. This self-awareness and authenticity lead to fulfillment. Small steps add up through neuroplasticity. By repeating simple practices like taking mindful walks, we cement new neural pathways over time. Consistency matters more than duration. Even reluctant patients find these lifestyle tweaks effective. Combat negativity bias intentionally. We're bombarded with up to 10,000 marketing messages daily, predominantly negative. This can wire our brains to constant stress. Seeking positive inputs counteracts this, whether it's reading good books or avoiding toxic media. Our brains are shaped by what we expose them to. Live a lifetime daily. Dr. Nerurkar recommends devoting bits of each day to the important elements of life - childhood play, work, family, vacation, and retirement. This provides balance and meaning. Details like phone calls to loved ones count. Dr. Nerurkar offers science-based, actionable strategies to refocus our minds and lives. Tune into this episode of Travis Makes Friends to learn more about mastering stress, understanding neuroplasticity, and optimizing your well-being.

He felt someone needed to uncover the problems, even though he was no longer part of the church. The upcoming documentary "Let Us Prey" on Investigation Discovery and HBO Max will shine a bigger spotlight on abuse in the IFB. Eric and others spent significant time being interviewed for it. According to Eric, the IFB attracts and enables abuse because of its authoritarian power structure, purity culture, and lack of accountability for leaders. It sends the message that abuse will be tolerated. Both Eric and Travis emphasize the importance of continual questioning and keeping an open mind, rather than sticking dogmatically to answers that can't be questioned. This prevents becoming trapped in harmful fundamentalist thinking. They feel empathy for Christians saddened by their deconversions but ultimately had to be honest about their beliefs. Mutual love and conversation matter more than agreement. This raw, revealing conversation exposed the rampant abuse and silencing in Christian fundamentalist circles, through Eric's courageous Preacher Boys podcast and the upcoming documentary "Let Us Prey." However, effecting real change requires questioning the system and speaking truth, with integrity and empathy. Travis and Eric model this by engaging kindly across deep divides. Listen to this entire inspiring episode if you want inspiration to fight injustice with compassion. By leading with moral courage, we can take away permission to abuse power, in churches or anywhere else. A better world is possible when we stand for truth empathetically.

Stevie Hendrix (@stevie_hendrix) is a globally recognized digital creator who has spent almost a decade connecting with millions worldwide alongside his wife Sazan. Together, Stevie and Sazan invite their 'online fam' into their lives through social media, cultivating an engaged community centered around kindness. As a true influencer, Stevie's impact stretches far beyond the digital space. He has partnered with globally-recognized brands like Target, Disney, AMEX, and Macy's as a brand ambassador and spokesperson. His infectious positivity and compassion have struck a chord with followers and brands alike. Stevie and Sazan have been featured extensively in major publications, including Cosmopolitan, People, Forbes.com, and graced the covers of magazines like Austin Living and Magnify. At his core, Stevie aims to spread more love, joy and inspiration through his work - regardless of algorithms, platforms or ventures. He is dedicated to uplifting others and making a difference through the incredible reach of his digital profiles. Their book A Real Good Life will help you be more intentional with each hour of your day, build deeper connections, establish sustainable rhythms, recognize the value of reflecting, focusing, gathering, and resting, and inspire you to cherish life's gift in each moment. What Travis and Stevie Discussed: Work hard when you're young to set yourself up for success later. In your 20s, you have energy and time on your side that you won't have later when you have more responsibilities. Use that time to grind, take risks, and build skills that set you up for bigger success down the road. Have a vision for your work. Grinding just to grind accomplishes little. Understand the lifestyle you want in the future, and use the hustle of your younger years to build towards that vision. With a purpose behind it, hard work in your 20s pays off enormously later. Struggle now or struggle later - the struggle is inevitable. It's better to purposefully take on hard things when you're young and able to control the circumstances more. Putting off struggle until later only makes it more difficult. Embrace the necessary struggle on your terms. The hustle is about focused, quality work, not just quantity of hours. Work smarter by examining how you spend your time and cutting out unproductive activities. A few hours of deep focus outpaces unfocused work for 14+ hours. The hustle is about working intelligently. Cultivate the garden you have. Your life circumstances may not be ideal or what you envisioned, but you can still cultivate goodness daily. Start with the garden you have rather than wishing for a different plot - make the most of the gifts and people around you now. Stevie provides an inspiring perspective on making the most of your younger years and cultivating a life you love. For more insights, be sure to listen to the full conversation on the Travis Makes Friends podcast episode with Stevin and how his book "A Real Good Life expands on creating meaning through simple, daily moments.

Jen Gottlieb (@jen_gottlieb) joins Travis Chappell in this inspiring episode of Travis Makes Friends to discuss her journey as an entrepreneur, speaker, and author. From auditioning for Broadway roles to creating a personal training business to manifesting her dream partner, Jen shares the ups and downs that eventually led her to where she is today. Before co-founding Super Connector Media, Jen Gottlieb was pursuing her dreams of becoming an actress in New York City. Her dedication led to landing a role in the Broadway National Tour of The Wedding Singer. But that was just the start of Jen's acting career. She went on to score a role on the hit VH1 TV series That Metal Show as "Miss Box of Junk", aka "The Vanna White of Rock and Roll". The only problem? Jen wasn't actually a fan of heavy metal music. After the show's cancellation and a breakup all in one week, Jen turned hardship into growth. She realized sometimes difficult times happen so transformation can too. Jen created the fulfillment, alignment, visibility and impact she dreamed of by fully stepping into the spotlight and letting the world see the real her.  Jen currently is promoting her new book: BE SEEN. Her book is the ultimate roadmap that will show you how to live out the life that you know you were meant to live. Not only will it help you build the confidence necessary to make this happen, it will equip you with all the essential tools you need to find your unique voice, build your brand, and live out loud! What Travis and Jen discussed: Why you need to take action to manifest your goals. Jen manifested huge milestones like booking her dream role and meeting her husband by not just visualizing what she wanted but also taking steps to make it happen. Manifesting requires putting yourself in the right situations and opportunities. How to turn rejection into fuel. Jen has faced rejection throughout her life, from losing out on acting roles to having book proposals turned down by publishers. But she used those rejections as motivation to keep taking action and work harder. Rejection is part of success. The importance of being yourself. Jen got cast on a TV show by showcasing her true personality, not the persona she thought they wanted. She lost herself playing a character on TV for years. Your authentic self will connect best with your audience. The reason behind never giving up. No matter how many setbacks Jen faced, she persisted in pursuing her goals. She knew what she wanted even as a child and never let anything stop her from achieving it. If you stay committed, you can create the life you envision. The truth about finding purpose. Jen thought her purpose was acting, but it evolved into motivational speaking which feels more aligned. Sometimes your purpose is not what you expect. Stay open and it will reveal itself. This conversation is perfect for any aspiring entrepreneur or creator. Be sure to listen to the full episode and feel inspired by Jen's story!

At just 26 years old, Aleric Heck (@alericheck) has already accomplished what most entrepreneurs only dream of. He started on YouTube over 14 years ago by creating AppFind, which grew into the largest app review channel at the time with over 500k subscribers. Now Aleric runs the highly successful 8-figure company AdOutreach, where he empowers entrepreneurs to harness the power of value-driven video and scale their businesses on YouTube. His clients have collectively generated multiple 9 figures in revenue. Aleric has received ClickFunnels prestigious 2CommaClub-X award, and AdOutreach was ranked the 87th fastest growing company in America by INC 5000. Leveraging his phenomenal results, Aleric has built several other ventures, acquired companies, and invested in businesses with a mission to empower entrepreneurs to share their ideas and solutions with the world. What Travis and Aleric discussed: Mistakes are inevitable when building a business. Rather than get discouraged, view mistakes as tuition you pay to learn. Refine based on data and feedback, but persist through failures on the path to success. Aleric made many mistakes starting his agency, but learned from them. Recurring revenue models are better for establishing long-term relationships and enterprise value versus one-off sales. Big companies obsess over recurring revenue for this reason. With one-off sales, each new deal feels like starting over. With recurring revenue, you continually earn trust. Running YouTube ads to your own public videos as in-stream ads can harm your channel's organic performance. The reason is that in-stream ads are skippable, so they negatively impact watch time metrics. However, in-feed ads that appear in search can boost discoverability without hurting watch time. When first starting out, it's best to niche down and focus on mastering one core skillset or service, then expand from there. This allows you to provide immense value in one area before branching out. Aleric started with a niche YouTube channel reviewing mobile apps, then leveraged that expertise to build his YouTube ads agency. To grow a YouTube channel with ads, first let your best-performing content rise organically. Then boost those top videos through in-feed ads targeted to your ideal audience. This amplifies reach while optimizing for watch time. Simply "boosting" without targeting is less effective. This is a fascinating discussion with YouTube ads expert Aleric Heck on the Travis Makes Friends podcast. To hear more expert entrepreneurial advice from Aleric and others, be sure to check out the full episode!

Natalie speaks fluent Russian and has mastered dozens of internal accents and over 50 character/celebrity voices. Seems like all bets are on Natalie getting on SNL soon! What Travis and Natalie discussed: How to build a social media following over time: Natalie talks about how she slowly built up her social media presence over many years, starting from just a few thousand followers. It requires consistently creating and posting content, finding your niche, collaborating with others, and having some viral moments along the way. Rome wasn't built in a day. The importance of embracing failure and rejection: Natalie discusses bombing on stage and having shows where she considered giving up comedy. Pushing through failure and rejection is crucial for success in comedy, entrepreneurship, and most fields. Use failures as learning experiences. Why you should pursue your interests even if it means leaving people behind: Natalie left Minnesota to pursue comedy in NYC. Travis discusses leaving his religious upbringing to find "his people". Following your passion often means parting ways with some people from your past. The truth about loneliness and human connection: We are more digitally connected today yet often more lonely. Natalie emphasizes making relationships a priority, being open to new friendships, and not overly judging/labeling people. Go out, join groups, and meet people. Talk to strangers. How to collaborate with other creators: Natalie suggests reaching out through specific asks and ideas that add value, organically meeting people through your niche, and attending collab days to brainstorm content. Surround yourself with people pursuing similar interests. Do you ever feel like you don't quite fit in with the people around you? Are you pursuing big dreams that your current friends and family don't really understand? Well, you need to listen to Travis's inspirational chat with comedian Natalie Friedman to hear how she broke out of her small town in Minnesota to bravely pursue stand-up comedy and social media fame in the big cities of NYC and LA. Natalie offers real talk on pushing through rejection, collaborating with fellow creators, and the importance of human connection in this disconnected world. Travis also drops truth bombs on finding your tribe, even if it means leaving some people behind.

She is a founding member of the Producers Guild of America's Social Impact in Entertainment (SIE) board and an Advisory Board Member to the MOVE Network NFT Platform. What Travis and Adhrucia discussed: Adhrucia knew from a young age that she wanted to be a storyteller. Growing up traveling and being exposed to different cultures, she found that books, music, and TV shows were a common language that helped her connect with people from all backgrounds. This early passion for storytelling never left her, even when she pursued business in college. To succeed in Hollywood, you have to want it more than everybody else. Adhrucia stresses that it's not about talent, connections or who you know - it's about determination. The people who make it are the ones who simply want it the most and are willing to work harder than anyone else to achieve it. Learn the business side of your creative industry. Adhrucia went back to learn the money and economics of the entertainment business, even though she was initially allergic to anything financial. This allowed her to better understand how to create and sell her work, and gave her more creative freedom. Have confidence in a backup skill. Knowing she could rely on being a good salesperson or e-commerce entrepreneur gave Adhrucia the confidence to fully commit to producing instead of playing it safe with a side hustle. Develop expertise in multiple skills to increase your confidence. Redefine what success looks like for you. Adhrucia encourages creators to see money made from art, whether on YouTube, Vimeo or elsewhere, as success - not just traditionally-defined achievements like Oscars. Reframe your definition of success within your industry.

She shares how she overcame setbacks, made pivotal career decisions and continues innovating in a rapidly changing industry.

Shelby Wachtendorf Colorado Springs Realtor

Hi Travis! I love your podcast. I am a Realtor and am always seeking ways on how to improve my ability to serve my clients to the highest degree. Like Jordan, I am currently building my business brick by brick - with the exception this is the first time I am building a business - and have realized that there are key elements, such as networking, that in the long term makes or breaks a business. This segment was fantastic as it dawned on me that interviewing skills are just as crucial in your industry as for mine. Approaching anyone with the intention to build a relationship takes interviewing skills - I have never heard it put that way before. Perhaps a significant part of this skill is about being interested in the person, not interesting. I also loved Jordan's acronym of Always Be Giving! Thanks for providing a great resource. ~ Shelby
