I Literally Hit Rock Bottom, So UP Is the Only Way to Go!

I Literally Hit Rock Bottom, So UP Is the Only Way to Go!

September 20, 2022

“Obstacles are the fearful things before you, but then you choose how to handle them,” explains Chonci Houston, Founder, CEO, and Owner of Houston's Tree Service. After suffering from an accident, Chonci hit rock bottom. His pain sparked his dream of opening his own business, leading him to the positive life he leads today.

 

After an argument with a coworker, Chonci became angry, which affected his work. He then fell from 90 feet, leaving him severely injured. This experience only further ignited Chonci’s faith, and he quickly chose to move forward anyways by starting his own tree service company. No matter what obstacles you face, Chonci believes that if you follow God’s scripture, you will find success. 

 

Even when things get tough, you can always turn it all around. Learn more about Chonci’s life-changing fall, his visions of God, and the gift of faith.

 

Quotes

• “God has a way of using those things that have been a pain, and then you have the choice to move forward anyway. (34:55-35:03| Chonci) 

• “Obstacles are the fearful things before you, but then you choose.” (35:22-35:25| Chonci) 

• “Since I fell, I'm at rock bottom; there's nowhere else to go but up.” (38:57-39:01 Chonci)

• “I believe that when you commit your way through scripture, he will make you successful. Your plan was successful.” (42:50-42:57 Chonci)

• “Scripture says the reason why people perish is because they don't have a vision. So you simply need to write it out. Everyone that has ever been successful in life has always written their vision out.” (44:56-45:05 Chonci) 

• “I'm willing to help solve an issue or fear to bring peace and a resolution.”  (47:21-47:26 Chonci)

Leave Something Valuable and Value Will Return to You

September 6, 2022

“I have found so much peace through music,” explains Mireia Clua, Teacher, Modern Violinist, Composer, and Improviser. Mireia first discovered her love of music in childhood, which prompted her parents to put her into music school. While studying, she realized that her passion was improvising music, which led her to the beautiful career she has today.

 

For Mireia, music truly is a calling. Although it’s not always lucrative and it’s a competitive field, Mireia’s primary focus is to make music that reminds others about the essence of life. Through working on improvising music with her husband or running social projects, Mireia is fully committed to her passions. It may be challenging at times, but Mireia trusts that her art will reach people in a meaningful way. 

 

Ultimately, you must leave something valuable in the world to receive value. Learn more about Mireia and her husband’s Latin American social projects, balancing an income with art, and her new course on how to compose with a violin.

• “I have found so much peace through music.” (12:09-12:14| Mireia

• “There's always going to be self-doubt. And this is a voice that we always have available inside us.”  (28:12-28:19| Mireia)

If You Don’t Try It, You’re Going to Regret It

If You Don’t Try It, You’re Going to Regret It

August 30, 2022

“I often talk about it as God's work because you may interpret it that way, but I think it is about connecting people,” explains Todd Nilson, Owner, Digital Strategist with Clocktower Advisors. Before starting Clocktower, a consultancy firm specializing in building online communities, Todd tried out multiple careers. Proud to say that this is the career that stuck, Todd shares his entrepreneurial journey and the importance of taking a risk.

 

Todd was working the highest-paying job of his career when he decided to leave and start his own business. Wanting to highlight his strategist skillset and needing the flexibility to take care of his parents, Todd knew it was time to take a chance. By creating online communities for his clients, Todd connects human beings and starts honest conversations. 

 

If there’s something you want to do, do it. Otherwise, you’re going to regret it. Learn more about Todd’s impetus into entrepreneurship, the benefits of an online community, and the importance of a curious mindset.

 

Quotes

• “I often talk about it as God's work because you may interpret it that way. I think it is about connecting people.” (12:21-12:30 | Todd)

• “Our neighbor is not necessarily the person living next door to us anymore. Our neighbor is the person who is somewhat similar to us or has something they're trying to learn or something they need. And we find them in some place of affinity. And that's often online.” (12:33-12:55 | Todd) 

• “Having that curious mindset is a gift, and being able to create curiosity is an even bigger gift.”  (30:49-30:56 | Todd)

• “If you're going to get a tool, make sure it's not just for one specific thing, but it's going to help you in a couple of different ways.” (47:22-47:29 | Todd)

• “You don't want to look back with regret and say, “I have this great idea for a business, and I just stuck with the job. I stuck with the job because I was making money for my family.” There's nothing wrong with that, but I think that kind of regret is poison to you.” (49:57-50:15 | Todd)

Your Story Has Tremendous Value!

Your Story Has Tremendous Value!

August 9, 2022

“Who can I invite into my life that has the kind of influence I'm looking for to help me make quality decisions? That individual mentality helped me shape the narrative of Peak Perspective,” explains Jimmy Zugschwert (Jimmy Z), Speaker, Author, and Sales Specialist. Jimmy has always worked in the sales field but never suspected that he would be a published author. Initially wanting to write a family history book to pass on to his sons, Jimmy discovered the importance of stories, leading him to write his first book, Peak Perspective

 

Throughout his life, Jimmy has been fortunate to have a group of mentors serve as his “personal board of directors.” Although he’s never held a board meeting and many of his advisors have never met, Jimmy understood the importance of having a trusted group of people by your side. Ultimately, the secret to success is utilizing the advice around you and uncovering the steps to fulfill your dreams.

 

Tune into this week’s episode of Move Forward Anyway for an uplifting conversation on the value of stories. Learn more about Jimmy’s book journey, the purpose of mentorship, and why no one can tell your story better than you.

 

Quotes

• “Who can I invite into my life that has the kind of influence I'm looking for, to help me make quality decisions? That individual mentality helped me shape the narrative from Peak Perspective.”  (19:07-19:23 | Jimmy) 

• “A personal board of directors is a term used to describe your personal team. It's not about a governing body of the person. A mentor, by definition, is a trusted adviser or a guide.” (21:59-22:14 | Jimmy) 

• “The greatest personal growth you'll have when facing a fear or a challenge is to be vulnerable with someone who cares about you and wants the best for you.” (28:06-28:18 | Jimmy) 

• “In your life, no one has a clear perspective on what you've experienced, what you've gone through, and what you've learned up to this point in your life. No one can tell your story better than you.”  (35:56-36:11 | Jimmy)

• “The things you have to share can inspire one person, or 20 people or 1000s of people. Don't be afraid to share your voice.” (36:43-36:55 | Jimmy)

I Will Never Live With ”What If”- I Am Going to Always Strive to Live for the ”Why Not”?

I Will Never Live With ”What If”- I Am Going to Always Strive to Live for the ”Why Not”?

July 26, 2022

“Courage is the ability to feel fear and do it anyway,” explains Gigi Butler, Founder and Culinary Creator of Gigi's Cupcakes and Author. Fourteen years ago, Gigi opened her first bakery with only thirty-three dollars left in her name. Five years later, she had over 120 stores in over twenty-four states, demonstrating the power of sticking to your dream.

 

Before Gigi opened her first bakery, she was a cleaner and aspiring singer living in Nashville. One day, while cleaning a client’s toilet, she got a call from her brother, who encouraged her to open a cupcake shop. After this life-changing call, Gigi found the courage to trust God and work toward making her dream a reality. Although it was risky, Gigi hit it big with Gigi’s Cupcakes and learned what it meant to be an entrepreneur.

 

Tune into this week’s episode of Move Forward Anyway for an uplifting conversation on striving to live for the “why not?” Learn more about Gigi’s entrepreneurial journey, courage’s relationship with fear, and the unbelievable rewards of taking a risk.

 

Quotes

• “Courage is the ability to feel fear and do it anyway.” (5:06-5:10 | Gigi) 

• “And all through my life, it's been a pattern of a tenacious spirit. That's what God gives you. God gives you special gifts.” (6:34-6:41 | Gigi) 

• “If you listen to what the world says about you, you're never going to heal. You're going to be in a rut, you're going to be devastated, and you're going to be depressed your whole life. If you depend on what people say about you, you're done. So good luck with that, because it's never going to work. You have to hear the words of healing from what God's perspective of you is.” (13:08-13:28 | Gigi)

• "You have to go through it to learn it. You can't learn these skills in a college setting. It's getting the touch and feel, mistakes and pain.” (17:11-17:21 | Gigi) 

• “I think people need to know that being an entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. Living fearlessly and being anointed doesn't mean you'll have an easy life. It means you are going to be persecuted more than most people.” (20:39-20:45 | Gigi) 

• “Shame on you if you're feeling something deep in your spirit, and you keep hearing it and don't act upon it. Because you're missing an opportunity to build something and create something that God has intended you to do.” (25:50-26:04 | Gigi)

Acknowledge the Giftings You’ve Been Given to Influence the Marketplace!

Acknowledge the Giftings You’ve Been Given to Influence the Marketplace!

July 12, 2022

“I think we have to give ourselves permission to adequately look at what our skills are,” explains Christina Walker, Vocal Performance Coach at Christina Walker's Vocal Performance Studio and CEO of Christina Walker Communications. Christina was a vocal coach for twenty-two years and learned much about entrepreneurship throughout her career. Now, she has a waiting list for her ever-growing business, where she finds fulfillment in watching people improve a skill they love.

 

Christina saw a hole in the vocal coach market—how kids performed under pressure. Through her program, she teaches children how to move past the anxieties of auditions and live performances to showcase their techniques. Understanding that the “performance energy” can cause our minds to lose control, Christina uses her natural gifts to help her students work past the fear and own their performances.

 

Tune into this week’s episode of Move Forward Anyway for an inspirational conversation on using your gifts to influence the marketplace. Learn more about Christina’s shift from the missionary mindset to business, why we should utilize our natural talents, and how to choose faith over fear.

Quotes

• “I love what I do because it allows me to impact people in something they're interested in growing. It's been fun to see people change as they go through vocal coaching.” (5:57-6:16) Christina)

• “I think we have to give ourselves permission to adequately look at what our skills are and what we are bringing to people through our gifts and talents.” (7:56-8:10) Christina)

• “But if we shut down and think, “I can't do this, or there's just no way.” And when we start having those thoughts, it's faith or fear. Choose. Nobody can choose for us. We have to choose ourselves.” (27:49-28:05) Christina)

• “I know the vision. I know what I'm going for. I can see it, feel it, taste it. It's there.” (33:07-33:13) Christina)

• “I think now more than ever, parents need to know what's actually in the performing arts because it's really geared a certain way. You can trust what the child is getting, and the coaching they're receiving from me is to build up and move them forward in what they're created to do.” (35:54-36:13) Christina)

June 28, 2022

“I would say you're never too old. Never too old. Go ahead,” says Rocklyn Grace.

• “I had to learn to step back and just laugh at myself a little and say, “You know what, even if it's delayed, it will still get published.” (32:33-32:43) | Rocklyn)

• “I just want to be able to tell them that they're loved, they are seen, and that God loves them.” (38:00-38:06) | Rocklyn)

• “If you're listening, contact Jeff and get some clarity. And let us help bring this dream into fruition because your dream is important. I love you and we want your dream.” (40:22-40:37 | Rocklyn)

If You Take Actions, You Will Get Results!

June 14, 2022

“I realized that I would never really get to the level of income or live the lifestyle I wanted for myself and my family if I worked for somebody else,” explains Tiffany Higgins, Founder and CEO of The Stay at Home Bookkeeper. Tiffany started her bookkeeping business in 2015 and credited that for changing her family’s life. Now, she teaches other moms how they can do the same and gain financial freedom.

 

Tiffany always understood that if her business failed, she could go out and get another job. With that safety net in mind, she chased after her dreams and figured out how to become a business owner along the way. Although Tiffany admits that she didn’t know how everything was going to work out, she stayed the course as she transitioned from her successful bookkeeping company to becoming an educational resource to budding entrepreneurs.

 

Tune into this week’s episode of Move Forward Anyway for an encouraging conversation on taking action. Learn more about Tiffany’s journey into entrepreneurship, the benefits of networking groups, and why you shouldn’t wait to take action.

• “I had not been a business owner before. I had no clue how it was going to work out. But we just went for it.” (9:01 - 9:07 | Tiffany)

• “You work it out and figure out each step as it comes to you.”(10:05 - 10:08 | Tiffany)

• “My favorite thing about teaching moms is that they’re stepping into new powerful versions of themselves that they didn't even know existed.” (24:43 - 24:52 | Tiffany)

• “We're always trying to make it more fun and more graceful for our students to reach the results they want. So we're always looking for new ways. We've added some cool new calls to our program.” (25:24 - 25:38 |Tiffany)

• “If you just take action, even though it's not perfect, then that's what gets you results.” (27:35 - 27:47 | Tiffany)
