A Conversation with Stephen Somers and Joseph Warren
Stephen Somers has made millions profiting from the rise of Amazon. He didn’t do it through an Amazon stock portfolio. He did it by creating a system for selling products to buyers across the globe. So far, he and his partner have MADE OVER $12 MILLION IN SALES.
But last year, one of Stephen’s family members became very sick. He had to take time off from his business to become a caregiver.
Looking back, Stephen is so thankful that HE CREATED A BUSINESS INSTEAD OF A JOB.
He says, “If you don’t have a business that allows you to take time off, then you don’t have a business. You have a job you can’t get out of.”
The reason Stephen was able to take this time off was because he isn’t just a master Amazon salesman. He's also scaled his business to teach his methods to others. He’s created automated courses and trainings, which means he earns passive revenue even when he’s not in the office.
Women-focused business conferences are FAILING female entrepreneurs.
Jen DeVore Richter, a popular conference speaker and my guest on Your First 100k Podcast, just can’t believe the typical speaking topics.
Jen doesn’t see anything wrong with these topics, but… WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY?!
She calls these topics “soft subjects.” And women do a disservice to other women when they assume their peers only want to hear about soft subjects. THAT ASSUMPTION IS WRONG.
The reason most female entrepreneurs fail is because their business numbers fail. Their numbers fail because no one sits new entrepreneurs down to explain revenue, profit, and cashflow. Financial conversations are what Jen would call “hard subjects.” To all my female followers out there, I know you can handle that conversation!
It’s simple. Your revenues must be higher than your costs. The difference is profit. And profit has to be high enough to sustain a livable lifestyle for both you and your family.
Otherwise, your business model isn’t sustainable.
Maybe you didn’t get a business degree from college. That’s ok. Jen has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs get CLARITY on their financial situations, and she is willing to share her top tips with you right now.

A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Dr. Dorian Williams
There are some people who just seem to have life’s Midas touch. They’ve had success in multiple careers. Their marriages are strong. Their children are excelling in school and sports. Dr. Dorian Williams, my guest on Your First $100k Podcast, is clearly one of these men.
But like 21 million other Americans, Dr. Williams was raised by a struggling, single mother.
“My mother worked graveyard shifts at convenience stores as long as I can remember,” Dr. Williams says. “I had many opportunities to watch my mother wake up at 2 or 3 in the morning and leaving before school, go to work all day long, and still cook for me and have a meal when I got home.
“For me, what really drove [me] was the want to not see my woman work like my mom did. That’s what drove me to say, 'There’s got to be a better way.'"
A Conversation with Joseph Warren and Dr. Deb Ekstrom
Long before Bill Gates founded Microsoft, he started programming computers in high school. This was before personal home computers. If he wanted computer time, he had to hitch a ride down to the school’s computer lab and spend long nights, after hours, experimenting with code he wrote himself.
Bill Gates logged thousands of programming hours before graduating.
Startup Nation, if you were sit down with a young Bill Gates and recommend an industry to start with, what would you say? Maybe... computers? OF COURSE!
It’s almost too simple, but it’s a principle entrepreneur forget ALL THE TIME. When starting a business, start with something you know.
