Brad Loyet and Bobby Drummond sit down to discuss how to make better business decisions as a boss and how we manage to manage! They cover aspects such as hiring the right people, fostering the right culture, and making sure personalities are compatible. A business is a well-oiled machine, after all, and all parts must work in unison.
Scouring through resumes can be a giant pain, and for what? They’re all going to sound the same, they’re all going to frame prospective employees in the best light, and often times you get an inaccurate picture of who an individual really is. Molding people into who you need them to be is important for a workplace to thrive and the guys share the techniques they use when hiring.
Everyone knows who their rockstar employees are, but how do you keep them happy and engaged? The guys give their insights on good employees vs bad ones, how to spot the difference, and the best way to let the bad apples go.
Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.
Become better at firing and hiring, it’s crucial for building a business.
It’s not always about how you feel, it’s about how you show up.

Not fitting in with the education system doesn’t mean you won’t be successful.
That’s what they tell you.
That’s what they want you to believe.
That’s what they tell the parents.
That’s what your parents end up telling you.
I can tell you right now that just because someone doesn’t fit the mold of the education system, it doesn’t make them a failure.
I graduated with a 1.9 GPA (Dan Griener) AND was kicked out of community college.
It wasn’t until I found a passion that I had a “why” to actually try in school and finish college (which for the record, I use exactly 0% of MY education).
I knew the entire fucking time that what I was being taught is irrelevant to real life.
I was in the hall for 25% of the classes for not fitting in. I was put into a special school district study hall because I refused to take my Adderall (the drug they give you to fit in line with the rest of the class since you are different).
Real life doesn’t even start until graduation day, and on that day, the real game starts.
Graduating near last in my class means that every time I see them, there is a 95% chance they did better than me in high school. And there is a 99% chance I am doing better than them now professionally.
I still know people who graduated with 3.8 GPA’s who are working jobs making less than $40k/year 10 years after high school.
Don’t let your past failures dictate your future. Don’t hold on to it. If anything, use it as fuel to prove the system wrong.

You have to do the work. No one is going to do it for you. No one is going to deal with your childhood shit. No one is going to fix your unhealthy relational patterns. No one is going to heal you from the outside. You must do it from the inside–Conor Beaton.
Golf is a game of inches. The most important is the six inches between your ears–Arnold Palmer.
Anyone can have PTSD. It’s not only for war veterans but that’s where it’s most commonly associated. For me, I just think it’s all about taking care of yourself.
Mental health is a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities can cope with the normal stressors of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make contributions to his or her community.
People love to talk about their problems because it makes them feel like they understand something at a very deep level without actually having to take any accountability for them–Jason Selk.
Most medicines will cover up a problem, so you can’t really see it at the time. So I really believe focussing on your mental health can fix a lot of the issues.
I’m not saying anybody to stop taking medicine, but I would say if there’s an opportunity for you to fix it yourself, I would try that.
There’s a ton of mental, not just the physical benefits of exercise. No matter what it is. Even little things like getting out for a walk can drastically improve your mood.
No matter how shitty or stressful things are, the only thing we can control is what we’re going through right now at this moment.

When I was young, I realized that you had to work to make money. And if you didn’t work, you didn’t have any money.
I have always had the ideology of throwing as much money as you can strategically and smartly. But do whatever you can to move faster.
The point when I thought that I was going to make my first million was the day I saw a million.
I was always so fearful of losing it all. I protected it over and over again.
You can always turn a loser into a winner. But winners will always be winners.
You have to put as much energy into the people that are just like you in the organization, as you do to the people who aren’t like you at all.
Everybody hits a rough patch in their career. Everybody has ups and downs.
I just think that if you do good for other people, stupid as it sounds, Karma is a bitch.
The only way you could beat Facebook is if you figure out a way that they can’t rip you off.

A man’s work begins in pain. It begins in us being able to look at our lives in a very real way and say, why am I suffering?
I’m very grateful for having put in the work to be the man that I am today to give my son the best chance possible in a world that is admittedly radically chaotic.
Some men feel like frogs because they’re not owning who they are or what they’re actually doing in their life.
The biggest moment for me was deciding that lying, hiding, and being untruthful in any way was a damaging impact on my life.
If you can find somebody that can help you get into that shame and grief before you hit the rock bottom, you can circumvent your situation.
The inspiration comes from giving yourself the permission to experience the things that you don’t want to experience, talk about things you’ve been avoiding, and own the things you’ve been running from.
For a lot of men, it’s easier to get validation from women than it is for them to go on a journey.
The purpose of initiation of putting you in contact with death is so that you could come back to culture, community, and your family, and be more effective as a man.
Uncertainty is the force of change. When you don’t know what’s going to happen, then what you’re left with is faith.
