Episode 0: Welcome to MYM Your Business: The Brutal Truth, with Colin Sprake
Hi. My name’s Colin Sprake and welcome to MYM Your Business: The Brutal Truth, my podcast that is devoted to getting business owners and entrepreneurs to be massively successful in all areas of their life. My podcast is a weekly podcast, and the first week of each month is going to be devoted to business mindset. Really getting your mind in the game because your mindset is the most important part to being massively successful in your business.
The second week of each month, I’m going to bring onto the podcast my personal mentors. People who have mentored me in all areas of my life, because to be successful in business doesn’t mean just being successful in understanding marketing, sales, what have you. It’s also being successful in your relationships, successful in your fitness, your health, what have you. I’m going to bring my personal mentors onto the podcast so we can interview them and you can learn what I’ve learned from them to get yourself to the next level.
The third week of each month is going to be devoted to business tools. Real solid business tools in sales, marketing, operations, profitability, what have you, to really get your business to the next level. When you are finished with the third week of each month, you’ll have set tools that you can use to go and implement and use in your business immediately to get you to the next level.
And the fourth week of each month is super exciting, because I’m going to bring on real successful entrepreneurs and business owners, the business owners that have gone through a lot of challenges in their past and have actually got themselves to the next level and broken through all those challenges, and you’re going to learn from them what it took to get through those challenges. These are what we call the entrepreneur stories on the fourth episode of each month to really assist you and get you ahead.
The big part about this is understanding that I am here to serve you, to get you to the next level and to assist you with getting your business way beyond where it is today. It doesn’t matter what level you’re at. I grew up as a child in South Africa. You can hear from my South African accent. I grew up in an environment where I was severely bullied. I thought at some stage in my life that I would never be successful. I actually, in fact, attempted suicide twice and people said to me, “Wow! I don’t know how you ever became so successful.”
I want you to understand. I am no different to any of you listening to this podcast. I want you to get ahead, no matter what your circumstances are, and my podcast every week is going to assist you with understanding exactly how to do that. At the same time, I want people to understand, too, that you can build a very successful business and a successful family at the same time. You do not have to sacrifice one for the other. In fact, your family and the support you have at home or your friends and what have you are vital to you being successful. The support is to me one of the biggest parts of ensuring you become massively successful in your business.
I’ve been in business since the age of nine. I started a very small company at the age of nine making calculator cases for very expensive calculators and I sold them at university campuses. I then started a cabinet company in my late teens which I eventually sold in my early 20s. Since then I’ve continued to build different businesses in healthcare, fitness, mining equipment, and also in the training industry. In terms of businesses, I am very, very devoted to assisting business owners with getting ahead and understanding what it takes to be successful and to learn from other people who have actually done it.
Like I say, this is the brutal truth. There’s not going to be any fluff or anything on MYM Your Business: The Brutal Truth Podcast that’s going to be airy-fairy or anything like. It’s going to be let’s cut to the chase. Let’s give you the tools you need. It’s understanding what has taken other people to get to that next level, and I want you to do the same, because I know what it takes to be at that level.
At the same time, I’m going to share with you the things I’ve learned from my personal mentors. People like Richard Branson. People like Kevin Harrington from Shark Tank, one of the initial original sharks from ABC’s Shark Tank show. I’ve learned so much from them. I want to bring it to you, because right now I’m growing a multiple eight figure business and I’m going to take that into a nine figure business and eventually into a 10 figure business which is that billion dollar, with a B, company. I want to show you how I’ve taken it from a very small business each time and grown it way beyond what I ever thought possible.
I want you to see that what you think is impossible today actually is really possible, and I’m going to open your eyes to it, open your heart to it so you can see how this can be achieved in your business.
My goal for you on each of the MYM Your Business: The Brutal Truth Podcast episodes is that you become more successful. You walk away with tools, strategies, thoughts, maybe mind shirts, aha moments, whatever it might be for you, that when you finish listening, you’ve got very set things that you can do and implement immediately from the shows.
Like I say, there’s not going to be any fluff. It’s all going to be about the cold, brutal truth of what it’s going to take for you to be very, very successful in your business in every way and form. And I look forward to you listening and getting you to that next level.
