How to Create More Wealth, Influence, and Power

Did you know that there is a real life version of the movie character Hitch? As the world’s most influential matchmaker, Paul C. Brunson has been recognized by Oprah, CNN, Good Morning America, and ABC, just to name a few. He is an expert on building influence through the power of relationships and I cannot wait for you to hear the insights that he shares in this week’s episode.

While working for a nonprofit he saw countless children without the presence of both parents in their home. He knew then that he was called to cultivate more nuclear families within households. Despite the criticism that he received he pursued his curiosity in matchmaking and is now an influential mentor, entrepreneur, and TV host.

We cover a lot in this episode including:

  • The various levels of influence

  • How to build stronger relationships

In this episode we debunked the following fitness myths:

  • Carbs are the enemy.
  • Eating 5-6 small meals boosts your metabolism
  • Lifting weights will make women bulky.
  • Only women are obsessed with the scale.
  • Tilapia is the only good source of protein.
  • Cardio is the best way to get in shape.

In this episode we also discussed:

  • What a sample eating plan on The Cut Diet would look like for different individuals.
  • The transformations that took place after Morris and Obi reached out to recruit participants to do “The Cut” via Facebook.

 On a personal note:

I literally tuned into Steve Harvey's TV show and my friend Tiaja Piere was on talking with Steve Harvey, celebrity trainer Obi Obadike, and movie star Morris Chestnut. Obi and Morris co-authored the book "The Cut". Basically, Obi thought it would be a great idea to write a book after Morris had gotten into tip top shape in 12 weeks getting ready for the sequel to "The Best Man" his plan. People actually talked about Morris’s physique more than they talked about the movie. Obi and Morris decided to get together and write a book based on the training protocol that Obi used to get Morris into shape. The dynamic duo actually reached out to people on Facebook who would like to be part of the study. Tiaja Piere responded to their Facebook invitation to get in shape with many others, and as they say the rest is history. My friend Tiaja's transformation was astonishing and really peaked my interest, as I have known her for years. I also heard Obi and Morris on"The Model Health Show" with Shawn Stevenson and thought I would love to have them on my podcast. How is that for the power of positive thinking. You have to ask for what you want and then act upon it!
