info_outline #95: "I’m not a banker, I’m a musician.” 12/19/2018
#95: "I’m not a banker, I’m a musician.” Self-awareness and self-assessment - two of the most important things you need to get clarity on in life! Why? Because it's so hurtful and wasteful when you chase things because you see your friends or people on social media seemingly happy with them - not understanding that it's not what YOU truly want. Too many people wasting time, energy and money on things they don't even want. Let's get clear in 2019. PS, connect with me on Instagram if you haven't already: http://instagram.com/juanvlopez

info_outline #90: You Don't Gotta Be A Dog At Home (Personal Relationships) 10/31/2018
#90: You Don't Gotta Be A Dog At Home (Personal Relationships) 2018 has been a helluva year. More sacrifices, work, sleep deprivation, investments, risks and changes in this year more than any other year combined. And my relationship has taken its hits. This podcast is for the hustlers out there, the grinders, the ambitious who are always on the climb – who have the "dog" mindset as I call it. But might be bringing that dog mindset into their relationship...
info_outline #88: I'm Meant To Be Taken Seriously, Not Literally 10/10/2018
#88: I'm Meant To Be Taken Seriously, Not Literally Yes, the title of this podcast is a jab at our 45th American President ;) But on a serious note: We dive into a few subjects on this podcast. 1) Drew Brees breaking the all-time passing yards record in the NFL. 2) Looking at ALL the possibilities of something going wrong in what you're doing. 3) Sacrificing what you have for what you want. Enjoy - let's goooooooooooo!
info_outline #87: The Art Of The Hustle 10/03/2018
#87: The Art Of The Hustle One of the best qualities you can have is being able to solve problems on the go. Too many people have something go wrong or not according to plan and get totally derailed. Life is going to throw all kinds of stuff at you and if you stop when you face a little resistance, you won't get very far. This is for all my HUSTLERS - not just entrepreneurs or business people. For anyone who's willing to put things together and work through problems to create a life they love.

info_outline #81: What If? 08/09/2018
#81: What If? This one’s short and sweet. I share a powerful moment I had at a recent speaking engagement with a group of incoming college freshmen who have a disability. My question to them was simple: What if? What if it had nothing to do with your intelligence or beauty or athleticism or parents or last name … and everything to do with your heart, courage, commitment and effort? Your circumstances are fact, but don’t let them run your life.
info_outline #80: "My Partner Isn't As Motivated As I Am" 08/01/2018
#80: "My Partner Isn't As Motivated As I Am" This one is for those of you who are super motivated and driven in life ... and have a partner who isn't on that level. Really wanna emphasize the ignorance I had with trying to make her meet some silly expectations I had in my head. If you're a hustler but your partner isn't and you might be building a silent resentment toward them, check this out.
info_outline #79: Knocked Out on my Computer Chair 07/25/2018
#79: Knocked Out on my Computer Chair I'm so grateful for people, man :) I posted a pic of me taking one of my patented 8-minute naps a week ago on social media and got a lot of kind reminders to take care of myself and make sure I sleep and eat well. I appreciate the concern, but there comes a time in a budding entrepreneur's life where it's a HUSTLE SEASON. Where there's a window of opportunity and you gotta go as quickly as you can through it to try to create the most of what you have. THIS IS MY TIME. Enjoy the listen and Tweet me if you're in a hustle season as well – would love to hear what you're up to @JuanVLopez
info_outline #77: Lil Sis Passed Her Driver's License Exam! 07/11/2018

info_outline #76: Inconsistent Commitment 06/28/2018
#76: Inconsistent Commitment A few themes that have been popping up in my life a lot lately is how people gradually slip into becoming a terrible version of themselves and how few people actually do what they say they're going to do. Life changes when you can get a handle on these two things...especially the latter. Shoot me a Tweet @JuanVLopez and me know what you think.
info_outline #75: Your Measurement of Happiness is Not Their Measurement of Happiness 06/20/2018
#75: Your Measurement of Happiness is Not Their Measurement of Happiness A funny thing happens when you're clear on your purpose and are moving at 1000% speed in that direction - people judge you and try to make their happiness your happiness. They criticize you for NOT doing the thing they think will bring you happiness. Their opinions of you are circulated around them thinking you're not leading a good life because they're not doing what they think should make you happy. Really listen to this. If your life is dominated by the opinions of others, really listen and apply.
info_outline #74: Life’s Gonna Serve You A Sh*t Sandwich 06/14/2018
#74: Life’s Gonna Serve You A Sh*t Sandwich Some people are only able to perform under perfect circumstances. The perfect timing, the perfect day, the perfect weather … But what do you do when it hits the fan? How do you react when nothing is going right? Are you motivated even when you’re behind in life? That’s the meat of this week’s podcast, PLUS an #AskJuanLo question about Facebook ads & ecomm. Enjoy ;)
info_outline #73: Something's Gotta Go 06/06/2018
#73: Something's Gotta Go When starting a new goal or taking on a new journey, a lot of people focus on the work that needs to be done to get there. Great place to start, but I immediately zone in on what do you need to give up to get there. What sacrifices have to be made to get to your new spot? A lot of people have goals but don't want to give up what they have in the short-term to create a better long-term. You can't have both old and new. Something's gotta go. You're gonna love this one...
info_outline #72: Speed Makes Up For A Lot Of Mistakes 05/30/2018
#72: Speed Makes Up For A Lot Of Mistakes You’re gonna make wrong decisions. You’re gonna suck. You’re gonna lose money. You’re gonna fail. You’re gonna analyze something fully and still make the wrong choice. A lot of you out there want to do something new in life but are being held back from starting out of fear of making mistakes. I get that you want to be cautious, but accept that you’re gonna screw up sometimes. Make a decision AND THEN make it right. Speed and urgency will correct a lot of your slip ups.
info_outline #71: How To Uplevel To Greater Opportunities 05/24/2018
#71: How To Uplevel To Greater Opportunities A lot of people out there are stuck, not because our work ethic sucks or because we suck ... but because we aren't getting the opportunities we deserve. It hurts me to see people in the same bad position year after year, simply because they aren't getting a shot to get to their next level. In this podcast, we dig deep into how to hack that and get a shot to jump ahead. A lot of personal happiness in life is dependent on what you do with the opportunities you have and your ability to create new ones.
info_outline #70: Keynote at American Advertising Federation 05/16/2018
#70: Keynote at American Advertising Federation Suuuuuuuper fire keynote I gave at the AAF Reno recently – you're gonna love it. We talked about the real challenges in the advertising space right now, the golden opportunity we have RIGHT NOW with the internet, excuses people make to not adapt, and a bunch of other good stuff. I really went in on these folks. Great group, grateful to connect with them. Enjoy and let me know what you think ;)
info_outline #69: If Someone's Gonna Screw Me Over, They're Gonna Screw Me Over 05/09/2018
#69: If Someone's Gonna Screw Me Over, They're Gonna Screw Me Over When I was younger, I used to act differently based around the people I was around. In my heart, I was giving, caring, loving and patient, but when I got around certain people, I would change up. I would change my behavior because of the circumstances. Not anymore. I'm me through and through. Giving, kind, empathetic, helpful. I'm a believer that if you are happy with who you are, continue to be you despite whatever circumstances arise. You'll reap the blessings ;)
info_outline #68: Wearing My Sister's Shoes In 6th Grade 05/02/2018
#68: Wearing My Sister's Shoes In 6th Grade I read an article recently on Jayson Tatum from the Boston Celtics which told about how he grew up poor, sometimes having to ask neighbors for food. Truly humbling and got me to thinking about what drives people to put their work into another gear. Poverty, hunger, homeslessness, abuse... And if you don't have those things in your life, are you able to fabricate something to drive you every day? Really think you'll enjoy this one. Holla at me when you're done listening!
