The Digital Age has changed the way we exchange and retain information. Every day, 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data are created. We are publishing and exchanging more information than any other time in history.  So why do so many people lack the motivation to learn new things?  When it comes to brain health and strengthening the mind, there is no one better to talk to than Jim Kwik.  Jim suffered a traumatic brain injury at five years old. Throughout childhood, he was labeled the boy with a broken brain. However, once he learned that genius is built, not born, he began studying the way that the brain works and how we can consciously retrain it to weed out limiting beliefs and conditioning. Now, he is recognized as a leading brain expert who has helped hundreds of individuals and organizations to reach their full potential by optimizing their brain health.  In this episode of YAP, Hala and Jim talk about how to take hold of your brain health. Jim described how his childhood led him to learn about brain health and how his first mentor taught him the power of knowledge. They discuss the importance of remembering people’s names and some tricks that Jim uses to remember every person’s name in a crowd. They also talk about the four ways that the digital age is impacting our cognitive functioning.  Topics Include: - Jim’s traumatic brain injury  - What is a lie?  - Jim’s mentor  - How did Jim start learning about the brain?  - Jim’s motivation formula: P x E x S3  - Training your brain  - Do we only use 10% of our brains?  - Genius is built  - Getting better at remembering names  - The Four Horseman of the Mental Apocalypse - And other topics… Jim Kwik is one of the world’s top brain coaches. He started Kwik Learning in 2001, which features a myriad of online courses in memory recall, improved reading comprehension, study habits, and overthinking.

There are several common misconceptions about generating wealth. For example, many people believe that becoming an expert in one skill will set them up for success, when in reality, having multiple skills under your belt will give you a unique portfolio that is more desirable to employers and customers.  Additionally, too many young people let thousands of dollars go to waste by sitting in a savings account.

Negotiations don’t always take place in a conference room. A negotiation is simply a discussion where both parties come to an agreement, so we are negotiating all the time. Something as small as talking to family about who’s bringing what to Christmas dinner is a negotiation!  And negotiations are not entirely verbal. Whether we realize it or not, we are influencing every negotiation with how we present ourselves.  Through paying more attention to our body language, our word choice, and the way we frame information, we can intentionally evoke more information from others, which can help us establish trust and build stronger relationships!  This episode of YAP Snacks will feature several pieces of negotiating advice from Chris Voss, a former FBI hostage negotiator and CEO of The Black Swan Group, where he’s using his extensive career in international crisis mitigation and high-stakes negotiation situations to teach people how to better negotiate and refine their communication style.  Stay tuned to find out more about refining your communication style to get what you want in everyday negotiations!  Topics include: - Tone of voice - Mirroring - Emotional labeling - How to use the words ‘I’m sorry’ - What does the word ‘fair’ really mean? - Why you shouldn’t match people’s energy - Lying to gain influence - And other topics… Sponsored by -  Delta Air Lines - Visit delta.com/travelwell to learn more.

How many times have you set a goal for yourself that you didn’t follow through on? How many ideas are swirling around in your head, waiting to be brought to life?  Too often, we keep our goals trapped inside our minds. We have a vivid image of what we want, but because we don’t know how to get there, we don’t try.  Casper Craven came onto YAP to talk about how to set massive goals for ourselves and follow through with them. Caspar has sailed around the world twice, so he is well-versed in turning the impossible into the possible. He has also built several million-dollar companies and delivers keynotes on motivation, goal setting, work/life balance, mental health, and resilience.  In this episode of #YAPClassic, Hala and Caspar talk about how to hold yourself accountable for achieving your goals. He gave tips on how to handle criticism constructively and why deadlines are crucial when starting ambitious new projects. He also revealed one of his best memories from his journey with his family, some of the challenges they ran into, and how they overcame them.

He spent more than 10 years in Professional Services, including five years at KPMG Corporate Finance. During his five years of travel preparation, he built three $1 million businesses - one of which he sold for a seven-figure sum while sailing across the Pacific Ocean.  He has sailed around the world twice, the first time on a trophy-winning race yacht and the second with his wife and three children, who were all under the age of ten at the time. He wrote his first book, Where The Magic Happens, about the process of planning and executing his family’s global adventure.  Resources Mentioned: YAP episode #14: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/14-anchor-your-success-with-caspar-craven/id1368888880?i=1000427679742  Caspar’s Website: https://www.casparcraven.com/  Caspar’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/casparcraven/  Caspar’s Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/cravencaspar/  Caspar’s Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/casparcraven Caspar’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/casparcraven  Caspar’s book, Where The Magic Happens: https://www.amazon.com/Where-Magic-Happens-Family-Changed/dp/1472949919  Connect with Young and Profiting: Hala’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/htaha/     Hala’s Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/yapwithhala/     Hala’s Twitter: https://twitter.com/yapwithhala  Clubhouse: https://www.clubhouse.com/@halataha   Website: https://www.youngandprofiting.com/  Text Hala: https://youngandprofiting.co/TextHala or text “YAP” to 28046 Learn more about your ad choices.

Too many people are stuck in the past: old ideas, old technologies, and old ways of living. When we don’t embrace change, we don’t grow or evolve. Accepting change and using it to fuel our growth is one of the most important things we can do for ourselves in every area of our lives.  But how can we resist our natural inkling toward predictability and become comfortable with change?  To answer that question, Hala invited Jason Feifer, a champion of change, onto Young and Profiting podcast. Jason is the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur magazine. He hosts two podcasts that focus on how to take hold of change and use it to your advantage. He’s also the author of the newly released book, Build For Tomorrow, which outlines how to use the power of change to your advantage using wisdom from some of the brightest minds in the world.  In this episode of YAP, Hala and Jason talk about how entrepreneurial thinking differs from the rest of the population, and how embracing entrepreneurial thinking can help you find more opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise have seen, even if you’re not an entrepreneur. They explain how to stack your skills in order to open new doors for yourself, why we resist change, and how humanity has resisted change throughout history. He also explains how we can use failure as data and view new situations as temporary experiments rather than permanent commitments.  Topics Include: - How well do you really know your audience?  - Why Jason renamed one of his podcasts  - Opportunity Set B - Parkinson’s Law  - Seeing loss as opportunity - Viewing opportunities as temporary experiments  - Defining traits of an entrepreneur  - Using failure as data  - The truth about time management  - The 1907 Teddy bear crisis - Jason’s actionable advice for becoming more profitable  - And other topics… Jason Feifer is the Editor in chief of Entrepreneur Magazine and champion of change. He has led an extensive career as a journalist, working at publications such as Fast Company, Men’s Health, and Maxim Magazine. He hosts two podcasts: Build For Tomorrow and Problem Solver.  Earlier this year, he released a book called Build For Tomorrow that outlines how humanity has rejected and embraced change over time. His goal is to help you become more resilient and adaptable in a world of constant change — so you can seize new opportunities before anyone else does!

Since the 1970s, we have viewed business as a way to make money, not make a difference. However, the way we view the role of business is changing. Some of the most successful entrepreneurs believe that purpose is the primary function of business, not profits. If your career and your organization exist solely to make money, you will likely lose motivation to keep going after you’ve met all your major milestones.  When we infuse purpose into every level of our businesses (and lives), we are building more fulfilling careers and inadvertently becoming more profitable. By aligning your organization with a mission, you attract customers who want to uplift that mission.  Plus, the profits generated by those customers will satisfy your stakeholders, so it’s a win-win!  On today’s YAP Snack, I want to explore how to build a purpose-driven business by sharing wisdom from entrepreneurs who have successfully aligned their companies with a powerful mission. Tune in to hear what John Mackey, Derrick Kinney, and Darius Mirshahzadeh have to say about purpose, conscious capitalism, core values, and using your money to fuel your purpose.  Topics include: -What is conscious capitalism?  -The Good Money Revolution  -The importance of purpose in business  -Using core values to create accountability  -Love in entrepreneurship -And other topics… Sponsored by -  Indeed - Visit Indeed.com/YAP to start hiring now.

The RAS is a bundle of nerves at our brainstem that filters out unnecessary information from our subconscious so that only the important stuff gets through to our conscious minds. It keeps our conscious minds from being overwhelmed with too much information by acting as a doorway between our conscious mind and our subconscious mind.  Our RAS determines what’s important to us by examining our past experiences. If your past is filled with pain, trauma, and limiting beliefs, then that’s what your RAS will seek out. This is why people get stuck in patterns of self-destruction; their brains are operating on autopilot, and their past programming holds them back from success.  On today’s YAP Snack, we talk about how to reprogram your RAS by sharing some of my best tips from the experts. Utilizing these tips will create long-lasting change in the way you perceive yourself and the world.  Topics include: -What is your RAS?  -How our RAS filters out information  -The Law of Attraction  -Controlling our subconscious mind  -Building a powerful morning routine  -Challenging your internal dialogue  -And other topics… Sponsored By: Black Pearl Mail - Turn your sign offs into sign ups with blackpearlmail.com  Podbean - Sabio - Go to sabio.la/yap and save $125 on your total bootcamp cost!

Getting a handle on your finances can look like a daunting task. But the truth is, you don't need a degree in accounting to get your financial house in order. Knowing where you stand financially is the first step to taking control. Secondly, it is also necessary to learn about https://fitmymoney.com/50-loan-instant-app/ as it might help you in the future. If you’re carrying balances on credit cards or other high-interest loans, pay them down as quickly as possible.
