Pastor And World-Class Coach, Tim Storey, Shatters The Source Of Your Anxious Desires With One Simple Truth
A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Tim Storey
Tim Storey is known as the “Pastor to the Stars.” He works with celebrities like Oprah, Robert Downey Jr., and Kanye West. He’s one of the most thoughtful, genuine men I know.
Recently, he shared a lifechanging lesson about slowing down and overcoming anxiety. A stranger taught him this lesson, and it has been so inspirational to him that he thinks about this person every week.
I can promise you, Startup Nation, this person is not who you’d expect.

A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Sean Casto
When Sean Casto was younger, he felt like an outcast becuase of his dyslexia. He had to take his tests in a different room with the other “different” kids. He felt confused and ashamed when the school assistant called his name and asked him to leave class on test days.
Because he couldn’t read as well as his friends, Sean started wondering if he was smart at all. Did he have the same value as other students? Would he ever be successful?
Then a teacher changed his perspective forever.
She reframed his dyslexia from a negative into a positive. She said that his brain was processing information a little too fast. Sometimes the words on the page got mixed up. This meant it was hard for Sean to articulate the thoughts, ideas, and facts he was reading. But she told him that in a few years, his brain would adjust and his fast-processing brain would become a powerful tool.
After a little digging, Sean discovered that many successful businesspeople had dyslexia. Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and Albert Einstein are just a few. What role models!
This encouraged Sean. He developed a new perspective on life. He saw his “disadvantages” as superpowers and it gave him the confidence to become a successful entrepreneur. Now he runs an app marketing platform that makes over $2 million in revenue each year.
Now before you read the next section, ask yourself this question, “What is your biggest disadvantage?”
A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Quinell Dixon
Quinell Dixon and I share similar life stories. Both of us grew up in poor families, and both of us became entrepreneurs to try and escape that lifestyle.
“I didn’t come from a family of money,” Quinell says, “I didn’t have things handed to me."
Quinell recalls one story that truly shaped him. When he was about nine years old, he asked his mother if he could have money to go to the store for a snack. She handed me a five-dollar bill and said, “Quinell, go to the store but please bring me some change back.”
That might not sound like a big deal, but when a parent hands their kid five bucks and says, “Please bring me some change back,” the kid knows something is up. The kid knows that his family can’t spare five bucks.
Now Quinell isn’t angry about this. He doesn’t blame his parents. Instead, he has developed a powerful WHY, a deeper purpose, that's guided him in his success.
He says, “Moments like that give you the opportunity to say, 'There are things that are bigger than me, there’s a legacy they want you to lead, there’s something deeper within me that wants to be consistent for my family and for my generations to come.'”
A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Atara Malach
Early on in her therapy business, Atara Malach was asked to speak to a group of working parents. As a parenting expert with six kids of her own, she was the perfect speaker for the event, and she was looking forward to it.
On the night of the event, Atara was prepared. She had written her lecture days in advance. She had her notes ready to go. She looked the part of successful, professional woman.
And as a loving mother, she had found a babysitter. She made sure the kids were fed. She even set out the kids’ clothes for the next day.
But as soon as she was about to leave for the lecture, her son curled up by the door and said, “Mommy, don’t leave.”
IT BROKE HER HEART.
Atara hugged him and told him things would be alright. She tried bribing him. The minutes ticked by. Eventually, she had to peel the little boy off her leg, hand him to the babysitter, and head to her talk.
When she finally stepped on stage, she couldn’t start her speech. She could only think of her son and how sad he had been as he watched his mom leave him. The guilt paralyzed her.
“I don’t know what to tell you,” she said. “I do know that I did not sign up for this, and I think that part of being stuck in my business life is feeling torn… When I am home, I’m thinking about business and when I’m at my business I’m feeling guilty that I’m not where I should be.”
Behind the Curtain with Joseph Warren
Startup Nation, today I’m going to share a story, and it’s going to be a story about Jesus. I know not all my listeners are Christian or even religious. That’s ok. But this story reveals a critical mindset that allows entrepreneurs like you to overcome tiredness, frustration, and depression.
One day Jesus was on a mountain teaching a large crowd of people. He was teaching them about how to live and about who God is. This crowd wasn’t full of professors, or priests, or billionaires. These were regular people like you and me.
Jesus understood the problems facing regular people. He knew that we worry. We worry about jobs, and food, and clothing. So, to encourage the crowd of listeners, he said, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’… But seek first [God’s] kingdom and his righteousness, and all of these things will be given to you as well.”
A Conversation with Joseph Warren, AJ Yager, and Meaghan Connell
Before starting Praxis Metrics, a very successful data analytics platform, AJ and Meaghan ran their own marketing business. As CEO, AJ was the best employee in the company. He had the most expertise. That meant he was irreplaceable.
But one night while AJ and Meaghan were vacationing in Spain, AJ’s phone rang. It was a client emergency. No one else could solve this problem, so at 10pm - instead of spending the evening sampling tapas with his wonderful fiancé - AJ was trapped on a business call.
“I really didn’t want to be on these calls this late,” AJ says. “I wanted to enjoy this time with my fiancé.”
A Conversation with Michelle Royal and Joseph Warren
Michelle Royal is a good friend of mine and a successful speaker, consultant, and entrepreneur. Now that she's found serious career success in these areas, she wants to write a book. Like most of us, she wants to share her experiences and wisdom with the world. She wants to make people’s lives better!
Michelle's problem: every time she sits down to write, she can't. She doesn’t know what to say. The responsibility to speaking to thousands of people is overwhelming. The complexity of the project paralyzes her.
Behind the Curtain with Joseph Warren
Startup Nation, I want to invite you to join me on a free Spiritual Clarity Call. There are a lot of business coaches who can guide you in pitching investors or marketing your product. But few coaches address the heart-level issues that affect our business and personal lives.
The reason I’m passionate about spiritual coaching is because I get to see behind the entrepreneurship curtain. Some of my coaching clients make tens of millions in annual revenue. They own the Ferraris and the beachfront condos. From the outside, they look like they’re absolutely killing it.
But I’ll tell you looks can be deceiving. I’ve seen it firsthand. For all the money and success my friends have achieved, they’re miserable. I see the pain and sorrow so many entrepreneurs struggle with. And maybe this sounds a little too familiar.
A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Jane Deuber
I’ll admit, Startup Nation, I’m not an introvert.
I love speaking in front of crowds. I get excited to hit the pavement and make sales to scale my businesses. My purpose in life is to talk to business owners like you and help them discover God’s purpose for their lives.
But I also know many entrepreneurs who identify as introverts. If that describes you, don’t worry! I recently hosted Jane Deuber on Your First 100k Podcast and she calls herself an introvert (and has been killing it as an entrepreneur for the past 30 years). Jane Deuber is a sought-after business strategist, two-time author, international speaker, and a respected mentor to mission-driven entrepreneurs around the world.
