I am so honored to have author, speaker and trainer, Brian Buffini, as my guest on the inaugural episode of the Live Inspired Podcast.

A few years ago I shared a stage with Brian at his event, The Success Tour, where we spoke to a stadium with thousands of of real estate professionals.

Little did I know that that day I would meet my mentor and a dear, dear friend. 

Brian's direction has helped me to improve my speaking, business, faith, family life and led directly to me writing and releasing my bestselling book ON FIRE

Brian is an expert in the real estate industry, but his vision applies well beyond and continues to inspire thousands of people each year. Today, you are among them!

My favorite takeaway from this episode is the lesson Brian learned from his grandpa:

  • The rule of asking yourself after everything you do: "Can you put your name on it?" On your days. Activities. Business. Faith journey. Life. It's a simple thing to remember and could profoundly impact your day!

You can order Brian's books here:

This is my favorite episode from The Brian Buffini Show Podcast: http://podcast.brianbuffini.com/episode-011-trust-worry-less-enjoy-journey/ 

To close each interview in a special way, I created the LIVE INSPIRED 7 segment. This is a series of 7 questions, shared "rapid fire" and answered boldly (without prep!) by our guests. My hope is to leave you reflecting on our guest's answers and YOUR answers... and excited to apply ideas from today's show to help you live an inspired life. 

Brian Buffini's Live Inspired 7

 

1. What is the best book you ever read?

The Bible.

2. Tomorrow you discover your wealthy uncle shockingly dies at the age of 103; leaving you millions. What would you do?

Give it away. I don't want anything from anyone.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be?

The question is 9-years to late for me! If I could have known, what I would have gotten: all the video tapes of my kids growing up. Those are the only things I miss.

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be?

Jesus. Just one dinner, breaking bread with him would be great. But also Alexander the Great, Julius the Great, Winston Churchill, Ronald Raigan, Mother Teresa.

5. What is the best advice you've ever received?

Work more on yourself then you do on your job. You can double your income as fast as you double your self-esteem.

6. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself at age 20?

Trust God. Enjoy the journey. It's going to be alright.

7. It's been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read?

Loved God. Loved his family. Helped the people he came in contact with.

My mom has taught me more about resilience, faith, courage, redemption, family, love and life than ANYONE else in the world. I am so honored to have her as my guest on this very special, preview episode of the LIVE INSPIRED Podcast!

If you've ever heard me speak, you've heard a lot about the impact my mom has had on my life. But for those of you who've not heard me speak, here is just one example. My mom and dad's unauthorized biography of my life, Overwhelming Odds, is what encouraged me to accept, own and celebrate my scars and my story. 

As if that wasn't enough! The initial 200 copies they printed to share with friends and family has resulted in my becoming a professional speaker nearly 10 years ago and the subsequent sale of more than 60,000 copies...

To close each interview in a special way, I created the LIVE INSPIRED 7 segment. This is a series of 7 questions, shared "rapid fire" and answered boldly (without prep!) by our guests. My hope is to leave you reflecting on our guest's answers and YOUR answers... and excited to apply ideas from today's show to help you live an inspired life. 

Susan O'Leary's Live Inspired 7

 

1. What is the best book you ever read?

What She Knew - Gilly Macmillan
Left Neglected - Lisa Genova
The Help -Kathryn Stocket 

2. Tomorrow you discover your wealthy uncle shockingly dies at the age of 103; leaving you millions. What would you do?

I would give large amounts to my kids...and family and friends who could really use the help. I'd get something really going with Parkinson's Disease Research. And I would go on a river boat cruise in Europe.

3. Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be?

My bible. Being a bible teacher for the last 18 years, I know that is where our true stories lie. 

4. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be?

Martin Luther King.

5. What is the best advice you've ever received?

My mom used to always tell me, "Put on your lipstick and you can go anywhere!" It has helped me through life. I'll keep this one lighthearted!

6. Looking back, what advice would you give yourself at age 20?

With relationships, work at letting any hurt feelings or harsh words go. Put them behind you and just keep going. 

7. It's been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read?

She came, through blessings, to know the Lord and love Him and she tried her best to pass that love on to her family and friends.
