Ep. 22 Recap – Paul Franklin

Paul Franklin is the principal at Franklin Capital Strategies, a financial services firm that specializes in estate planning and insurance for small business owners and entrepreneurs; athletes and celebrities.  His “no quit” mentality coupled with his detailed level of attention to each and every client makes Paul a popular choice when it comes to future wealth generation.  I was greatly inspired by Paul’s attitude as he discussed the challenges of being told, “no.”  Rather than looking at “no” as a closed door, he looks at “no” as simply “no, not right now.”  And he uses that type of rejection to fuel his fire and improve wherever possible.  Or as Paul had put it:

I run to failure.

It is that type of mentality that separates the winners from the losers.

Ep. 13 Recap – Andy Simms

Absolutely loved reconnecting with my man, Andy Simms.  Whenever you spend countless days, weeks, months and years with someone on the road, you develop a bond that lasts a lifetime.  Listening to our conversation, it is easy to see that Andy and I had a very unique dynamic and friendship that was formed through our business ventures.  When you go into battle with someone, that person becomes a brother for life.

Our battles were in the form of recruiting college players in hopes of beating out all the other agents and agencies vying for the same prize.  And quite often, we found ourselves on the winning end of those battles.  It was our energy and contagious positive attitude (I took that from my Episode 7 with Ryan Young!) that often made the difference.  It was those hard-fought, intense battles that taught me how to win in the real world; and, at the same time, taught me how to handle the brutal realities of losing.  I use those priceless experiences now on an almost daily basis in both business and in life in general.

“It ain’t about how hard you hit.  It’s about how hard you get hit and keep moving forward.” –Rocky Balboa

There’s no doubt that Andy has kept moving forward in his 20+ year career as he has now partnered up with Young Money APAA Sports – the heavy hitters in the music and entertainment industry.  I look forward to seeing what Andy does in the next five to ten years now that he has the backing of Lil’ Wayne, Mack Maine and Cortez Bryant.  And I am hoping to see him negotiate some of the most lucrative deals — “a (hundred) milli” — in NFL history.

Ep. 13 – Andy Simms, NFL sports agent

Andy Simms is an NFL sports agent who heads up the football division at Lil Wayne’s Young Money APAA Sports.  After founding PlayersRep Sports Management in 1997 – and growing his firm into one of the premier NFL agencies in the industry – he sold PlayersRep to Young Money APAA in 2017.

In this episode, Andy and I discuss the cutthroat, competitive nature of the sports agent industry.  We talk about what it takes to succeed in the business and why so many agents fizzle out.  We take a walk down memory lane and provide insight into our many crazy, fun and compelling recruiting stories from the road.  We end with Andy’s continued plans for growth and what he expects from himself and his firm in the coming years.

Ep. 11 Recap – Kelli Carson

Beautiful, smart, compassionate, insightful :: just a few of many adjectives that can be used to describe Kelli Carson.  A woman who always knew creating a career for herself would be important, Kelli was able to marry that entrepreneurial drive with her immense passion for helping people.  And these are not just any people.  These are people struck by severe diseases/disabilities such as autism.  People who are “non-verbal” and do not have the ability to care for themselves.

As All Hearts Home Health Care approaches its 13th anniversary, I was honored to have Kelli on the show to discuss her professional path.  It is extremely impressive to see her now employing approximately 100 people who care for anywhere between 50-60 clients throughout various counties in Northern Ohio.  As her reach continues to spread and her company continues to grow, we will undoubtedly see Kelli having an even greater impact throughout our community.  Her pending children’s facility – due to open May of this year – is just one example of likely many more to come.

What I really love about sitting down with my guests is the ability to pick their brains and find out what makes them tick.  Each person has a unique perspective of the world and they all bring their own flare to the game.  While Kelli’s passion remains in health care, she is always on the look out for new business ventures outside of the medical industry.  It is that type of entrepreneurial spirit that keeps the wheels of our economy in motion.  And while the future is unquestionably bright for Kelli, the future for her clients and patients remains even brighter so long as she and her company(ies) are involved.

Ep. 11 – Kelli Carson, home health care owner and entrepreneur

Kelli Carson is the founder of All Hearts Home Health Care, a home health care service provider to people with mental and physical disabilities.

In this episode, we hear about how Kelli’s entrepreneurial journey began at the ripe age of ten.  We hear about her path from sales to real estate, and how she knew she needed more emotional fulfillment from her career.  We hear about how she ultimately found that fulfillment by combining her passion for helping people with her passion for growing a business.  We get insight into the emotional tolls that the home health care industry can take on the providers and hear about some of the challenges these remarkable people face every day.  We end with a discussion on Kelli’s plans for the future, her love for her clients and employees, and other business ventures that are of interest to her.
