RWR-012: Eric Zimmer Goes From Drug Addiction to Fortune 500 Consulting

On this episode, Eric Zimmer explains how he has always had the entrepreneur mindset. From a paperboy to owning a small landscaping company to working in various small startups to starting his own companies and so much more.

But all that could have been cut short as he developed a nasty drug problem early on. Luckily for him, he was able to kick that habit and create a lot of success for himself!

At the beginning of 2014, he launched The One You Feed Podcast, and by the end of the year, he was voted one of the Best of iTunes Podcasts of 2014. But it doesn’t stop there, he also does e-commerce consulting for large businesses on huge projects.

I’m excited to share this story with you today, I think you’re really gonna find it motivating and relatable! So without further ado, here’s Eric…

RWR-011: My Goals Don’t Stop For Anyone

The quote of the day is:

My goals don’t stop for anyone. Either you support me or I make it happen alone. Either way, it’s going to happen.

You will encounter many people in your life that will doubt you, hate you, make fun of you, or whatever. You need to ignore them, and move on. You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with, and if they are holding you back, it’s time to cut them off. You will never reach your goals if you give into them. You need a stronger mindset. Reach your goals no matter what. If they don’t want to support you and go with you on this amazing journey towards your success, then leave them behind, while you go on to do epic shit alone!

RWR-010: Producing Digital Automotive Magazines with Mike Alexander

I’ve known who Mike was for quite some time, but we didn’t connect with each other until a year or two ago when he approached me to build a website for him. Little did I know, this idea would turn into a big digital publishing company. And by big, I don’t mean a massive office in Silicon Valley with hundreds of employees. He has assembled a team of freelancers and passionate individuals in the custom automotive scene from all over the world to crank out high quality content month after month.

Over the past year or so, Slam’d Magazine has built a huge following, and I know the recently launched Lift’d Trucks is setup to do the same in the coming months. It’s pretty cool to see it all evolve even though I was hired to build these sites, so I may be a little biased. But from the perspective of a custom automotive enthusiast (which I have been for over 15 years), something new like this is exactly what our scene needs. Someone to push the envelope, put quality before anything else, and make the content easily accessible to the entire world.

I ask all the typical business questions, but I dug deeper and really pulled out some inspiring thoughts from this publishing veteran, things he never thought we’d discuss. Not only is he a very genuine person, but you really get a sense for his desire to help other aspiring entrepreneurs, as well as pave the way for generations to come in the automotive space. Even if you’ve known Mike for years, I think you’re gonna learn a lot more about him here, and after you listen to the whole episode, you’ll be so motivated that you’ll probably reach out to him just to say thanks.

With that being said, let’s get on with the show. And I apologize in advance for any audio issues you might hear, we had some technical difficulties but I really didn’t want to lose all the value he adds, so I edited it the best I could. Enjoy!

RWR-008: Stats From My First Month of Podcasting

When I recorded my first episode about 5-7 weeks ago, I knew I wanted to immerse myself into the world of podcasting. I was so nervous to record that first episode, but I’m so glad I did. A couple weeks after that, I launched the Risk Without Regret podcast on iTunes and I was humbled by how many people around the world cared about it. As soon as the first few episodes went live, I knew I was going to do a recap of everything after the first month. Well, here it is.
