Randy Ginsberg

A natural-born entrepreneur, believes that a person’s future is not dictated solely by their past, and even the toughest challenges can be overcome through the power of entrepreneurship. He illustrates this idea through his book, Adversity to Advantage: How to Overcome Bullying & Find Entrepreneurial Success.

Our guest dives into the stories and mindsets behind a group of highly diverse and successful entrepreneurs who were bullied in adolescence yet overcame bullying and used it as fuel to develop themself in the world of business.

Randy has been featured in numerous national press outlets such as Forbes, Entrepreneur, Inc.com, and Newsweek, and now shares his insights with a wide audience of business leaders, students and parents. Randy constantly works to step out of his comfort zone and re-invent himself through his entrepreneurial endeavors.

Top Tips

Don't let negative energy bring you down

It’s difficult to look on the bright side when you’re surrounded by negativity. Sometimes, we unknowingly give toxic individuals influence over our thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. Dealing with negativity can be quite a downer. It's important to regain your personal power.

Seek out positive people to keep you balanced. Just like negative people can rub off on you, a positive person can brighten your spirit. Decide that you're not going to allow negative people to determine how you think, feel, and behave. Take back your power and focus your time and energy on becoming your best self.

The only person you have control over is you, so focus on your happiness. Rise above and remain positive.

Develop resiliency on being an entrepreneur

Resilience is achieved through the consistent progress we make each day towards our goals. It is the ability to get up one more than you fall down.

As the saying goes, "Fall down seven times, get up eight"

As an entrepreneur, starting a business requires a lot of work - emotionally, physically and spiritually. It’s a never-ending path of setbacks, challenges, and potential roadblocks from start to finish. The struggles may be inevitable, but the way you frame your setbacks is completely up to you, and may be the very thing that helps you succeed.

David Meltzer | How to Buy Happiness by Shopping for the RIGHT Things
In today’s episode, we cover the myth about success with David Meltzer. David is the Co-founder of Sports 1 Marketing and formerly served as CEO of the renowned Leigh Steinberg Sports & Entertainment agency, which was the inspiration for the movie Jerry Maguire.   While “money can’t buy happiness” is a phrase most people in today’s world are familiar with, many of us still chase after money as if it will buy us happiness - so what is it about this truth we can’t seem to let go of and what can you do every day to lead a more fulfilling life without money?   What to Listen For What is the biggest myth about success?  What does it mean to “shop for the right things” and why is that phrase so important when you start attaining financial success? How do you start practicing gratitude when you feel like you have nothing to be grateful for? What are the 3 votes you make each day that influence whether or not you can live a successful, fulfilling life? What 3 concepts can you internalize that will give you motivation on a daily basis? What 5 daily practices can you start implementing today to help you achieve your dreams?   We grow up being told that money doesn’t buy happiness and yet we are surrounded and bombarded with messages about the crap we need to buy in order to make our lives better (aka to make us happier). And many of us are raised in a culture where we expect to give/receive material gifts every year (Christmas, birthdays, etc) because they’ll bring us joy (aka happiness). We have to be able to recognize these signals and then we must be willing to take steps to live outside of them - aware of them, but dismissive of how silly they are.   A Word From Our Sponsors Share your vulnerabilities, victories, and questions in our 17,000-member private Facebook group at theartofcharm.com/challenge. This is a unique opportunity where everyone — both men and women — celebrate your accountability on the way to becoming the best version of yourself.

Find the Blessing | An Intimate Fireside Chat with Tony and Sage Robbins (Part 1)
Tony and Sage sit down for an intimate fireside chat to personally share what their own experience has been during this time, and also share a message of hope and unity during this unique holiday season. Together they tell us how this is a time to move forward, to create, to be able to step into another dimension of who we are. Because what we get will never make us happy; it’s who we become and what we contribute. “We are not the manager of our circumstances, we are the creator of our life experience.” – Tony Robbins About The Fireside Chat Series: In the 1930s and 40s, a time when the country was struggling even more than it is today, we had an amazing leader named FDR. He began doing evening radio programs called “fireside chats,” designed to communicate directly with the American people. At that time, 90% of people in the U.S at that time had a radio. Today, 96% of people have a cell phone and nearly all have internet access. Instead of being unified and watching all the same things, and having a collective experience, now we're all kind of separated. And we can see division in our culture. We desperately need a form of unity, a form of connection, more humanity and more kindness in the world. Tony and Sage thought to bring back this time-honored tradition of a fireside chat as a means of unity and compassion. We’re entering the winter season, drawing inward into our homes and into ourselves, reflecting on the hardships and blessings alike this unique year has brought. In this three-part series, you will hear them dispel their hopes and dreams for you this holiday season, as well as share some of Tony’s powerful tools and strategies to not only survive the coming months, but to step up and thrive.
