Tony Rulli on What True Entrepreneurial Freedom Really Looks Like

Tony Rulli runs Intentional Spark, a Digital Marketing Agency specializing in Facebook advertising.

In a previous career, Tony was a Corporate Banker with Wells Fargo. But finding corporate life less than ideal, he quit and traveled around the world for a year.

Upon his return to the US, he did everything he could to never go back.

3 years later, he now works with his wife, one other full time employee, and 6+ contractors in his Digital Marketing Agency.

Tony’s journey is a really cool story!

After reading The 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss and Vagabonding by Ralf Potts, Tony and his wife Meg quit their jobs and set out on a nomadic adventure.

Through setting up a travel blog and meeting lots of freelancers along the way, Tony found inspiration and the practical resources he needed to turn his long-term desire for building a company into a reality.

Starting with a spice box subscription service, his entrepreneurial pursuit has taken a handful of turns and we dug into some of the common trials that entrepreneurs face, but rarely talk about openly.

Sean Stewart on How Selling is a Metaphor For Life

Sean Stewart is a speaker, trainer, and mentor for mission-driven coaches and entrepreneurs.  His main focus is helping his clients build thriving business by attracting and enrolling high-end clients. Sean’s clients often come to him with a lack of leads and a fear of asking for the high ticket sale and through his transformation based systems, he helps them solve those problems so they can make the impact and live the freedom lifestyle they dream of.

 Sean has been a featured expert on NBC News, Fox News and in The New York Times and 7 figure business leaders (like Ted McGrath, Lisa Sasevich, and Marisa Murgitroyd) have hired Sean to help their sales teams increase conversions.  

Sean is committed to creating serious transformational results in the lives of individuals. He helps his clients align their inner game with their outer game and gets them the promised results by providing easy to follow strategies, to get results quickly, towards the direction that they want to go.

He researched many training styles and methods and found that courses were very motivational and inspiring in providing people with the WHY and the WHAT, but failed to include the HOW.

According to Sean, Sales is a metaphor for life that can provide a transformational growth opportunity. It’s about confronting things head on, about being able to be present in the face of an uncomfortable moment with an individual and stand for them or be a rock for them.

Sean has a 3-day event coming up in October, called Transformational Sales Mastery. It’s for people that have an aversion to sales, are not getting the right results, feel uncomfortable selling or have value issues. This event will help them to step into a new identity.
