It's been 100 consecutive Monday mornings, going back to February 1, 2016 that I've been publishing a brand new episode at 5 a.m. In today's conversation, we reflected on these 100 amazing reasons to be inspired, motivated, encouraged, and we are reminded of the mission fuel that's now in the library of past conversations, ready to assist others seeking to rise above and go way beyond in blazing their trails. In this celebration episode, we talk with my wife Kristin Hart who shared her perspective on this journey, having been involved from long before this podcast was created and seeing what it's accomplished to this point. We also talked with our most supportive member of the Blazer Nation, our trailblazer Annette Richards, and this episode would not have been complete without our now #1 Most Downloaded Episode guest ever, Mr. Shawn Dove of the Campaign for Black Male Achievement who is also our sponsoring partner. Hands down, one of the best episodes we've created for this podcast to date. There are so many nuggets of wisdom packed inside this hour long celebration. To our listeners, our Blazer Nation, none of this happens without you. If you decided not to download these episodes, we would not be here celebrate 100 episodes, so THANK YOU.

Mission fuel inside today's conversation:

Do not bet on later. When we bet on later, everyone loses @ConcitaThomas
Jeremiah 29 11 -- For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Begin right now, to use the obstacles you've already overcome to show how talented you are, how brave you are, how determined you are, how patient you are, how kind you are, and how strong you are. The curve balls [thrown at you] were there to actually work in your favor. Just don't let the circumstances you've already endured, don't let those derail your dreams and progress. You are great, and today you need to remind yourself of that. Remind yourself that you are worth the fight. Keep pushing, keep believing, and keep showing yourself just how great you are.
Blazer Nation, if there's one rule that we will live by after this first 100 lessons we've got is that Anyone can blaze! Success is defined in many ways. Don't let your background, where you live, how much you earn, or how much you've failed define you. The only difference between you and many of the folks featured on this podcast, is that when life punched them in the gut and then fell on their knees or flat on their back, they got back up. Les Brown says if you fall down, try to land on your back because if you can look up you can get up.

Named to Fast Company's League of Extraordinary Women, Tiffany Dufu is today the Chief Leadership Officer to Levo, which is the fastest growing millennial professional network.
 
She's been featured in the New York Times, Essence, O, The Oprah Magazine and she's a sought after speaker on women's leadership.
 
A good friend said Stephen, you've absolutely got to read Tiffany's book. And that's what I did. Tiffany Dufu has authored a book titled Drop The Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less.
 
Hands down, one of the best books I've read this year. It's a book to encourage women to develop the skill to let go, so they can thrive. If you're a married woman with kids, this is a must read. But if you're a husband or a man working alongside a woman, especially with kids and a family and multiple obligations, this book will help you see some things from another perspective.

Nicole Walters explains what inspired her to quit her six figure job in front of 10,000 people on Periscope, then go on to earn a million dollars in revenue within 18 months. She explains her motivation and drive behind the work she's doing today. Best part is she shares some nuggets of wisdom on the 3 steps we must engage to move towards that desire of full-time entrepreneurship.

Questions I asked Nicole:

  • What unexpected blessing in your life are you most grateful for?
  • Why were you inspired to quit your job on Periscope in front of 10,000 people?
  • How did you make that first million?
  • What's something that people who don't have money, wrongly assume about wealth?
  • What's driving you today to do the work you're doing?
  • What are the critical steps to move forward toward a goal of full-time entrepreneurship?
  • What are the traits that make an entrepreneur a good sales person?
  • What are some non-negotiable daily habits?
  • What's your best advice to parents to raising awesome kids?
  • Share one action our future entrepreneurs should commit to this week, to help them blaze their trail?

I am only limited by what I can dream and pray for

The bible talks about how your provision resides in your purpose. When you are closely aligned with what you are suppose to do and when you are using the gifts God has given you to serve others then you see bounty. And I can honestly say that's what happened. I took the smarts that I had and I started applying it to the place that I could serve the most, and I started seeing rewards for that. Both financially, emotionally and spiritually. It's really been a blessing.

I had multiple income streams ... my business was not based on a single source of income. One of the biggest mistakes people make when they are getting into consulting, is they exchange time for money.

Our featured guest today is Tynesia Boyea-Robinson.  Ty is the President and CEO of Reliance Methods. In this episode, I learned how determined she was. We experienced the mother of all technical difficulties trying to get this call recorded and spent maybe an hour just determined not to let our frustrations with tech get the better of our conversation.  We finally got the call to record and I think you'll enjoy getting to learn a little about Ty.

What are some of the foundation pieces new entrepreneurs need to put in place to have a successful startup?

Ericka Dotson, Indique Hair co-founder and creative director, was inspired by clients to fill the void in the hair extension industry with a premium, knowledgeable and customer orientated business.

In this conversation, Ericka and I discuss how she got into the hair extension business. She shares how she went counter to the advice of her instructors and went straight into startup mode right out of cosmetology school. We talk about her morning rituals and her approach to attract, nurture and empower new talent. She shares how she gets her team on board with her vision and her crazy creative campaigns. Lastly, she gives some wisdom to all our new entrepreneurs on what we can do to help us succeed with our startups.

Some of the questions I asked Ericka:

  • 04:55 What got you into the hair extension business?
  • 29:00 What's one of the most challenging experiences you faced in business and what did you learn from that experience?
  • 32:40 What are some of your consistent morning rituals that set you up to win everyday?

Ericka Dotson's Bio

Ericka Dotson, Indique Hair co-founder and creative director, was inspired by clients to fill the void in the hair extension industry with a premium, knowledgeable and customer orientated business.

In the onset of her career, Dotson focused on a more traditional office profession. While working in a corporate environment in Austin, Texas, she rekindled her love of hairstyling and began to sharpen her skills in hair extensions. Dotson began specializing in this growing aspect of the hair industry and worked heavily with women experiencing hair loss diseases.

Her time as a stylist led her down many creative paths. Dotson has had a great deal of experience in creating hairpieces and designing different looks. Her innovative style has been sought after in numerous fashion shoots and runways.

Ultimately, it was the frustration Dotson’s clients expressed when purchasing hair extensions that sparked the idea of creating a company. Her drive and passion for ensuring the highest quality hair for her clients morphed into Dotson’s partnership with Krishan Jhalani and the founding of Indique Hair.

Dotson is the creative force of Indique Hair. She spearheads the innovative pieces in all the collections and branding methods. With Dotson’s vision and experience, Indique is focused on providing exclusively premium virgin hair extensions. Ericka strives to ensure exhaustive and comprehensive quality assurance for Indique, while continuing to improve and find additional methods to maintain or increase the quality and service.

Dotson is an alum of Howard University. She currently resides in Austin, Texas, and has a daughter.
