0:01 Hey, it's your host, Daniel Martinez. We're here with another short episode. This is we're here with Brian Kramer here to talk about cool or interesting story that he's had in business with either one of his him or his clients. So, what's that story? 0:17 Let's see, that I've had with myself or one of my clients. Okay, so, here, here's the, here's the story. You know, I, in my, in my career now going on, I think it's around 25 years, I, 0:34 I had some really down years. And, you know, you would think that after all of the things that I had done that I would be over that, but no, I took it to an even lower low. And I thought, Let's push this puppy. So I did, I made it even even went to the lowest of lows. I was traveling over 200 days a year. Speaking and, and running my agency, we had $30 million agency 30 employees and working with Cisco and MasterCard, Netflix, all kinds of great companies. And, and I was traveling at the same time, and I had two young kids at home, my wife and I were running the agency together. And, and it was such a from the outside looking in, you know, you would think I was doing I was doing really well. But from the inside out, I was dying a slow death. And I was just like so, so burned out. It just was so much it was taking a toll on me. I ate my way through every country. It was the food was so good. And I was sitting there. So I was blowing up like getting overweight, and really, you know, got to the point where I got diabetes, type two diabetes and created just my own little world of, of hell really, but still continued to show up in a way that everyone thought that I was doing great. And I'd show up on stages and people I'd speak and then I go home and all that kind of stuff. And so one day I came home from one of my trips, my 11 year old at the time, Henry, he said, Dad, can I talk to you for a second? And I was like, Yeah, sure, of course. And he grabbed me by my hand and took me to his bedroom and said, Sit, sit down, I want to talk to you. I'm like, Oh, wow. Okay. And he said, Dad, you're, you know, you're overweight. He said, actually, in his words, he said, You're fat. You're, you know, which he's right. I ate so much. It was good food. And he said, you're you, you know, you got diabetes, and you're never hear you're never at all our school functions for my sister i and we never see you and I miss you. And, and I and I really hope that you know that we want you here because we don't think that you're going to be here to meet your grandchildren at the pay at the rate that you're going. And it you know, kind of in that in that just and I was like, it was like a dagger to my heart. Because nothing matters more to me than family. And I hear I thought I was doing all this for my family. But I you know, I hear I'm like doing the complete opposite. And I I said thank you I hugged him I said that really means a lot and I love you. And I said to my wife, I'm after my next trip, I had another trip and I came home and I said I'm I'm done not with us but I need to exit everything and I need to quit or not quit but exit things so that I can get my life back. So I stopped traveling for a year I took a year off. We exited the agency over six months. And and I got my life back I lost 85 pounds, I got rid of diabetes and and I started to do coaching and executive coaching after a little bit of time and help people so that they have to burn out and still could run and build their businesses. And and I started making more money Believe it or not than I did with a 30 person agency. And I was like so shocked that I didn't have to work as hard to do it. And I could live in an even better life and do it from anywhere in the world that was like this is great. I never missed a day of school with my kids or, or and that was the goal right to get back with family and to do that kind of stuff. So that that really made a difference in my life. I think that that we all run the rat race and that rat race leads us to something that you know, that we think we're going to achieve and it's going to make us better humans and then before we know it we've lost time with everyone and we don't have that back you can't get that back so so that's that that's what changed me that's the that was a an incredible experience. 4:48 That is I That's That's like my worst fear is like I get to get too deep in the weeds that we lose focus on what I'm actually going to do or what what why I'm actually doing it. So I really man This that even saying that I, I hope you share this episode with your with your kids and hope they see it because I think it's huge self reflection and huge like discipline just to give it all up and let it all go and be be more effective. Because I think she's gonna get it on your own get you get on your own way. 100% and that's that's huge. Because like I feel myself getting better right now and I'm like, I'm gonna do a better one 5:28 day. But you don't have to do it one day you can do 5:33 today. Yeah. 100%. And like, it's just like, I hope, I hope and this is where like, I need to do this now because I don't want to have my my daughter do the same thing to me that have the same conversation because Brian told me this on November 7 2022 that he went through this, I hope I don't have to go through it. And you Oh, that's that's the whole thing about like, mentorship and all that stuff is that you don't have to go through the same pain that your mentors did. 6:03 Amen. Amen. 6:07 So, for everybody listening, focus on what's important. There's better things that take less time that produce better results. And that's a wrap.

Host/ Ceo/ Speaker

I have been an entrepreneur since 2018. I come from a regular home just like most people. My dad worked on the roads in the Chicago area for over 30 years. He always taught me to work with my brain, instead of my body. Your body can only take so much abuse. I learned so much from my father. He always pushed me to work smarter and not harder.

I have owned and operated a trucking business for 2 years. I started learning real estate in 2019. Fell into the Data & Skiptracing business in 2020. My partner Anthony & I started Hivemind in 2021.

I have done a ton of different jobs coming up from painting, to door-to-door sales, telemarketing, truck driving, and loading trailers. What I learned most is that I want to stay in the digital business space. The leverage you can have delivering digital products to the marketplace can yield limitless possibilites.

I started The List Guys in 2020. It is a data and skiptracing service. We provide seller and buyers list nationwide. My clients have been getting great results and I am proud to help people killing it.

I started the Hive in 2021 with my partner Anthony Gaona. It is a real estate and business mastermind. It also comes with a all in one CRM, that can host unlimited websites and users.

Starting the Hivemind has been an amazing journey so far. Seeing one of our users make his 6 figure month in June 2021 leveraging our software, I know there will be plenty more to come!
