“The Contribution Equation” with Alex Charfen

Alex Charfen talks about what he calls “The Contribution Equation.” There is a foundational equation at the heart of the achievements of every major figure throughout history. This Contribution Equation is both the shortcut to success and, as Alex contends, the meaning of life. For EPT’s, what life is all about is knowing you moved things forward, you were in momentum, and you made a contribution every day.

“Entrepreneurial Loops and Spirals” with Alex Charfen

Alex Charfen warns us about what he calls “entrepreneurial loops and spirals” and the challenge of unintentional consumption. Whether it’s books, seminars, coaches, or online programs, entrepreneurs have the tendency to consume information and products unintentionally in an effort to find momentum.

“Entrepreneurial Suppression: Why You Feel Like You Don’t Belong” with Alex Charfen

Alex Charfen says the world is uncomfortable because EPT’s make them nervous. Most people want things to stay the same. Societal systems (like public education) are set up to standardize behavior and suppress what’s unique, different or new. Recognizing this, entrepreneurs can reverse the cycle of Entrepreneurial Suppression to maximize their unique attributes and live in their strengths.

“Momentum: The Life Blood of the Entrepreneur” with Alex Charfen

Alex Charfen says The Entrepreneurial Personality Type (EPT) is a personality type that explains your behavior and the way you interact with the world … there’s nothing wrong with you, and you are not alone. This type is a sub-population of human beings that is driven to move forward, momentum based, and wants to create new outcomes in the world. When we look at success throughout history, and when we look at people who’ve been driven to move the world forward, we don’t see formulas or plans, what we see is a personality type…the EPT.

“Make Decisions Without Self-Sabotage” with Kevin Hogan

Most decisions we make are non-conscious. For example, you get an email, and you just click on it. We make hundreds and hundreds of decisions every day without any awareness whatsoever, and that’s a good thing because our brain knows what has to happen around us. And 97-99% of the time it’s doing a pretty good job.

But then there are the bigger, more impactful decisions that are very conscious. Buy a new house, change jobs, or start a new business are decisions that fall in that category. Those kinds of decisions are very hard to navigate when they bump up against our fear of change and begin to inspire self-sabotage. In this episode, Kevin Hogan guides us through self-sabotage and how to make decisions in a conscious, practical way that helps us get past our fear of change.
