Have you ever wondered what matters the most to people who have unlimited wealth?

Is it their health? Is it their family? Is it their mission? Is it making more money?

I recently had a fantastic opportunity to immerse myself among some of the world’s most successful and ambitious entrepreneurs at Genius Network, hosted by Joe Polish.

One after the other these giants stepped on the stage and passionately shared their vision for a better world through service and contribution.

You see, the most successful people on the planet didn’t accumulate their wealth through greed, they did it through a never-ending desire to serve humanity by trying to create a better future for millions of people (and billions who are not even born yet).

I took lots of notes from the speaker presentations and had some intimate conversations that proved to be personally transformative.

I wanted to share some of my biggest takeaways in the hopes that they inspire you to take your business and personal growth to the next level.

It’s an honor to be able to attend such an excellent event and to bring these nuggets to you. I’ve dreamt of this day for many years. I consider this one of many ways that I can pay it forward to you.

  • It’s easier to create a billion-dollar business than a million-dollar business.
  • Don’t sell, inspire.

  • The health of your company is a reflection of your own health.
  • To scale your company; eat right and develop yourself.
  • Let your team fail so they can learn and become independent.

You can clearly see that that health, family, and personal development are a theme that comes up quite often. What you might not know is that every single one of these people utilizes functional and lifestyle medicine as their primary form of healthcare!

Of course…they’re Geniuses.
