Emmitt Muckles: ladies and gentleman welcome to the billionaire lifestyle podcast today I have a really awesome guest and she’ actually met one of the people that I adore which is Og Mandino ladies and gentlemen I like to welcome them Judi Moreo to the billionaire lifestyle podcast how are you today
Judi Moreo: I’m great thank you and thank you for having it again
Emmitt Muckles: oh I looked at your books and I was like who I have to have this woman just your presence will just make my podcast shine and forgive me for being selfish for having to have you on.
Judi Moreo: i’m pretty selfish too. i enjoy doing these shows they’re wonderful and it gets great exposure for my book and I’m so proud of my book and to could comment on what you said yes I did have the good pleasure to meet Og Mandino. you know and and no him over a period of years before he died and he was quite a mentor to me really helped me to get my writing going.
Emmitt Muckles: so i have written a book myself i’m not going to talk too much about that so I Understand fully you know the challenges it is when you’re writing a book you know all the ideas you have but just to put them so another human being can understand them is a challenge itself which lends itself to one of your videos that i saw talking about communication it was so elegant the way you put the words and i made the definition for people to understand communication. do you speak a lot to as a keynote speaker.
Judi Moreo: I well I do have a lot of keynote speaking but actually I do more in the field of training. i love training I i like the keynote speaker because you go there you do it for an hour and and you touch a lot of people but with training I get to be a closer up one-on-one so I like to do like the workshops and the breakout sessions and that and the training in the company’s and actually really help people to get something they can walk away with. I feel like in the keynote speech I kind of just motivate people but they don’t walk away much, so i have to have a product from to take home to say okay you know this is what she can teach me, whereas with training i can actually do more you know once we have smaller group we only had like 30 people in a in a training class so. i really enjoyed that the most.
Emmitt Muckles: so your book is titled you are more than enough can you explain how you got to the process of that and what brought you to that ideology and share it with people.
Judi Moreo: well when I when I named the book you’re more than enough that was based on the fact that, i keep self-esteem I I do a lot of pro every program i do whether it’s customer service for communication or creativity it’s always gotta and a part in an on self esteem because how we feel about ourselves helps to create how we treat other people and how creative we are, and so I the attitude and self-esteem is always a part of it. as I was growing up I didn’t have a lot of self-esteem I had to learn it and so I studied and studied and studied and learned it. and I I always overestimated other people and underestimated myself. and even though my parents constantly told me you are enough you know you can do this you go to try it. somehow I still had that that timidly about me, I was shy and I didn’t want to get out there now people who know me can’t believe I was never shy can’t believe I ever didn’t have high self-esteem. but it was something I had to learn and so as i got older i kept meeting women that were older that were saying to me oh I wish I had self-esteem and i’m looking at people who work for the thirties and forties fifties you think of what do you mean you don’t have self-esteem you know that was something we had to learn growing up and then I started talking to people and, I thought you know what I’m going to write a book about this since I was writing the book I was writing a chapter entitled you are more than nothing one of my girlfriend’s was reading the book and she’s quite a successful woman and she said well why did you name your book this because this chapter is what your whole life is all about and I said oh my gosh there appears right in front of me I wrote it down at the chapter title and didn’t realize it was the book title and so I i moved it over to be the book title and and it really is you know that we are more than enough and we underestimate ourselves so many of us then and now I just because that book the publisher totally slanted that book for women and yet the men that that I worked with that when i did the audiobook the man that recorded it when you got done he looked at me and he said why did you just do this for women if I have this book 20 years ago I have been more successful.
Judi Moreo:so I’m doing a new book now iíve using some of the same principles but i’m not doing a new book for men and women both entitled you are more than you think you are
Emmitt Muckles: that’s awesome you know that you you bring up a really great point when women do so much in this country now and I realized this a long time ago that women were controlling a lot of businesses and they were making a lot of inroads to areas and it was a quiet storm but one of the things that i noticed that when women produce products they literally stay within the female demographic and it seems like it and, I’m talking from a male point of view that men are to and if you go and i remember this from 1991 my first marriage. i had hard time adjusting it but i remember going to the bookstore and I saw droves of books to help women. there was literally nothing for men
Judi Moreo: I know I know
Emmitt Muckles:so your new book that’s coming out when do you anticipate that the next year or so ?
Judi Moreo:oh I’m hoping to have it out in about three months I’ve been working on it for about a year already so i’m pretty sure we’ll have it out by Middle of march
Emmitt Muckles : awesome awesome so that’s one thing that we have to do you have to come back here so that we can talk about that thentoo
Judi Moreo: i’d love to but you know I just want to comment on what you said because when I wrote the other book I wrote it for men and women both original and the publisher said men don’t buy books you have to change needs to be just the women and I wonder if the publishers belief is what causes there to be so many books dear toward women because they believed that women by book and men don’t buy self-improvement type books its more leadership type books.
Emmitt Muckles : well I think that it’s a changing demographic with the Millennial course if you watch if you watch the Millennials they are about they have their own community and they have their own self awareness and I think that may have been true with a certain man that found to a certain time period but i think that has changed now with with the way the internet is opened up things because now people are how very comfortable in the ebooks
Judi Moreo: oh yeah i think i agree with you i agree with you but I think that’s why it wasn’t a path that people wrote predominantly you know the self-help books for women but I seem an everyday now, in fact i have a an online program called the achieve more method and I have a lot of men sign up for that program because I think about how you can be more and do more and have more by learning how to achieve more and very often we don’t know how to set our goals and if we do set our goals we don’t know how to make them become reality a lot of people write goals the first of every year in two months they give up on them. and so I I really work with minimum about in fact a lot of my coaching clients are men as well as entertainers. I live in Las Vegas so I get a lot of people from las vegas trip that that come to me to have me help them figure out how to market themselves properly.
Emmitt Muckles: awesome , actually i’ll be in vegas probably in September i have a conference that i have to attend that I attend every year they keep having their so I’m not maybe
Judi Moreo: maybe we can have you on my television show all that would be awesome
Emmitt Muckles: that would be so awesome! tell me about your television show tell me about it
Judi Moreo: I have a I have of live television show in las vegas it’s called the world of book reviews and I review books and talk two authors i have various authors on and i have a guest of a guest co-author and co-host that is eight years old but she’s my guest co-host whenever she’s available and she reviews children’s books and. we talked about children’s books and why they’re good for the kids her age which is she’s really popular people like her a lot and so mainly I just I talked to authors and I thought to people who read certain books who like or don’t like him I like to get people’s opinions in the show is a live on on the local television station and then it gets archived on AK experts tv.com and so it’s always there on AK experts tv.com for people to watch this segment.
Emmitt Muckles: so who led you to your coaching career because I’m you know if you’re dealing if you’re talking to people of course you’re probably going to have to have some kind of relationship to bring them further some people can’t just digest information and then move forward and as you said there are some people who make new year’s resolutions that’s the start but they don’t know how to continue the race into the end so how did that come about in your life
Judi Moreo: Emmitt, I started my first business when I was 24 years old and I didn’t know that you couldn’t start a business with two thousand dollars. so I i went out and started my business I just had this idea to start this finishing school and model agency and I had two thousand dollars saved up and I thought that was enough money so I rented the office, and I started telling everybody about my business and three weeks after I open my business was the first time in the history of Las Vegas that they had a strike and turned out every light on the Las Vegas Strip and so people who aren’t going to send their kids to modeling school because that was an extra and the strip hotels weren’t going to hire models because they were all closed down so here I was you know like like a couple months in. and I was like my gosh i’m broke you know and i went to my landlord nice that we have a little problem here because I can’t pay my second month’s rent and he looked at me and he said well you know the guy next door bet me that you wouldn’t last in business six months he said not betting you would so if you can hang in there for six months we can make enough money off him to pay the rent.
Judi Moreo: that’s a true story and I hung in there for six months and actually i hung in there for 21 years my business became very successful and. I and I basically promoted my business through speaking that’s why i started speaking i started going out and talking to junior high schools and high schools and Girl scout troops and Boy Scout troops and telling them about my finishing school and model agency and why they had to come and go through the school and have personal development courses and learn to believe in themselves and then one day the Tropicana Hotel called me and said do you do mouth programs and I said well what’s that they said well when we bring a convention and we need someone to entertain the wives and husbands and I said oh yes i do that makes to go how much you charge and I said fifty dollars which was really thinking and and they hired me and then after they hired me a hundred times i joined the National Speakers Association and i found out, wait a minute you know you should be making a lot more than fifty dollars so by then identify hundred features and I of my price and and that’s how I promoted and started that business and that business you know was so successful and then someone bought it for cash my my financial planner said you build a business in order to sell it so i did and i went into speaking full-time and it’ taken me to 28 countries around the world and i ended up working in south africa for eight years and starting a new training company over there. and then after six years of having a company in south africa brought it back to America could put our our headquarters here in Las Vegas I could be home with my family was but I love South Africa and so that’s how I got here where I am today but it was a long hard struggle you know
Emmitt Muckles: but most struggles are long and hard did that’s one of the things that I hope to impart by sharing people’s stories that, we have this notion that everything is a overnight sensation or it was they went into it and they began to be successful and most of the really talented most of the people that we see in any field genre they’ve been added a while. they it’s it’s the and eating an elephant ideology I always say, you have to start somewhere because you just even if you have raw talent you have to refine that talent so life will dictate to you the path but what you must do is you must start on the journey and stay on it that’s part one have been one of my biggest flaws ‘as because I’m all over the place sometimes actually had a podcast called that and it was called all over the place what I really like is your youtube videos so do you have a youtube channel ?
Judi Moreo:yes it’s judi moreo, youtube/Judi Moreo
Emmitt Muckles:you have several websites so you have lifechoices.com, judi Mario dot-com and you also have one for your new book correct?
Judi Moreo: well I have your more than enough dot-com, and then I also had viet read more method dot-com that’s our online training program that people can have me coach them online
Emmitt Muckles: alright
Judi Moreo: oh it’s a one year program
Emmitt Muckles: so when your program yeah so how much time do you have to spend is it like one day a week or is it monthly or do you have group sessions how does that work
Judi Moreo: well we have all of that, they for the first 21 days if the kickstart program for the first 21 days I seen them three questions a day and they send me their answers and then on the twenty-second day we actually start the lessons because by then I have a knowledge of who they are and what they done and then we actually start the lessons and then they get one videotaped lesson every month in addition to that they get 52 audio affirmations throughout the year sorry I’m sorry you and then they get daily affirmations and then in addition to that we have a closed Facebook page and they have like a mastermind group with just their group on the closed Facebook page and that’s where they asked me questions directly and I answer them and we all work together on their particular goals. it’s somewhere between private coaching and group coaching it it’s kind of both but I don’t have the time anymore to privately coach people I used to coach people privately and it was sixteen thousand dollars a year. and now I i do this online and it works out real well cause i can give them a lot of personal attention but at the same time they’re getting the mastermind with other people who are on the same path trying to reach the same success. and the price is really reasonable and it’s two hundred ninety seven dollars for the year you can’t beat that and so I like it because i get to know people from all over the world and i get to know them on a more personal basis and they get to ask me questions based on my experience in my background and I have you know section extensive background in the business world especially as an entrepreneur. and so for them to be able to ask those questions personally to me it helps them a great deal as well
Emmitt Muckles: great great great one thing I really liked about contacting you are just doing my research on you i really liked your your website your web site is is beautiful i’ve talk to some people for interviews , several people in the last couple of days and that the websites blow me away because it so clean and so beautiful and how you integrated your blog into your website as well as your blog attached to your website or is there a different address I know people have that
Judi Moreo:you know it in the website its judimoreo/blog
Emmitt Muckles: your website is so informative because you can grab media about your media you can get your about you learn more about you you’re speaking, your blog, your shop I was just kind of blown away you gave me some some direction and just you mentored me just by having a website can you believe that
Judi Moreo:oh Emmitt, thank you thank you i’m gonna tell jake takes my my wonderful Jake naylor, he’s the guy that does all of my website and all of my graphic arts and he’s just the most magnificent person and I i like my website because it’s clean you made it looks so neat and pretty and I’ve had a lot of web people tell me all your websites to clean it needs to have more links that needs to be this way or that way and I just insisted on keeping it the way it is because i like this the way Jake get it i think he’s a he’s brilliant when it comes to putting these together it is
Emmitt Muckles: the way I would say it’s just it’s simply elegant you in and also
Judi Moreo:I’m count it and
Emmitt Muckles: it shows you are NSA member how has NSA and which for those of you who are not very familiar with it that’s National Speakers Association how they helped you to bolster who you are today
Judi Moreo: oh my goodness i find the National Speakers Association and 1986 I mean that’s a long time ago and that was where i sat down at dinner next to OG Mandino you know I said right next to get it at one of the first dinners I ever attended and I didn’t know that was who he was I’d read all of his books and and he was sitting there and he asked me who I was and of course I went on and on and on about who I wasn’t what I did and then I said and what you do and he said oh I right little books and I said oh really what kind of me said fables. and I said oh what’s the name of one and he said The Greatest Salesman On Earth. and I was like oh my gosh oh my gosh I i do you know anywhere you know when I said I thought you were dead you said my wife sometimes fix something and it’s I you know I just blurted it out like that you know but I mean back then you sat next to people like norman vincent peale and Zig Ziglar and Og Mandino and Joe Charboneau and I mean these were the Great’s of the speaking industry and they were all in the National Speakers Association. today many of those people have died but still the best speakers in the world that and the National Speakers association conferences. so i try never miss a conference because I get to meet people I get to hear all the latest things on training and development and all of the the latest technology. and you know it’s one of the places that I discovered that the internet is the way for speakers to be selling themselves nowadays. it so that’s why I started you know really making a presence on the internet and i started this online program to help people i can reach people all around the world and i would have learned about that if I hadn’t been with the National Speakers Association and I mean the about all my best friends are from there so you just meet positive people everybody’s coming up you know nobody’s walking around complaining about things
Emmitt Muckles: that’s true
Judi Moreo: i like positive people
Emmitt Muckles:I’ve been to a few NSA meetings i started looking into it when I had an idea for a book and actually, I had this conversation with God to said I want to change direction and I had this book that i wrote and it’s a and it was inspired by Og Mandino, because it’s about the same size but I didn’t know anything that do after that I was clueless are probably i’ll send you a copy of it and I would like very clear so between that and toastmasters which I just kind of ran through they were like where did you come from
Judi Moreo: Toastmasters it’s a great place for people who are learning to speak where National Speakers Association is about more about marketing yourself as a speaker
Emmitt Muckles:and that’s what i did not know at the time I was a complete novice I was just ignorant in this is information that people would like to hear that’s why we’re talking about it because it’s about the journey and your journey is going to be a textbook for someone else in this little conversation that we’re having here because this is this is what this will go on forever I’ve done podcast back in 2006 and i still get emails about them and I didn’t even know they were still online.
Emmitt Muckles: where do you see yourself in 2017 were right there at the precipice so what’s a good oh
Judi Moreo: I write my goal every year on New Year’s Eve I have a I have a definite program that i do and i write my goals every year on New Year’s even. I like right now I’m formulating all those goals for next year in my mind and then I write them down quarterly I say okay by the end of the first quarter i want to achieve this and by the end of the second quarter this and third quarter this and usually by the end of the second quarter I’ve already done the whole year because by writing them down and getting real clear on them that happens and so this year my my goal was to put the achieve more method up online and get it going that that was supposed to start 2017 and I got it already so i went ahead and launch it earlier so it’s already up and running for the coming year and then i’m going to be doing a little bit more speaking on locally. I’m I’m trying to cut back on doing so much national speaking because national and international travel it’s gotten harder and harder and harder i am going back to South Africa for a trip in march i’m looking will forward to that to do a program for a hotel chain over there that I’ve worked with in the past. it’s called misty hills it’s a wonderful a chain owned by Recreation Africa so i’m going there and then august i’ll be going to Tanzania and 2 Kenya because i want to see the migration of the animals all my life I’ve been on my bucket list that i want to go and do that hot air balloon flight over the Serengeti when the wildebeast through all my grading and feel like signed up for it i bought it i bought the hot air balloon like I’m ready I’m but that’s one of my goals for this year personal
Emmitt Muckles:goal good good good we have to have those you’ll have to excuse my voice as i said i have i’m suffering a little bit of a cold here but there’s one thing that we have not talked about and that’s the country conquer the brain drain
Judi Moreo: oh yes that’s it that’s the interesting book that I real with me on Fiona McCulloch Carmichael she and i wrote that book a few years back we were hired by one of these women are companies that you go from city to city to city to do public seminars and people find out method and they go you know they pay like a certain amount $39 or $79 are $199 dollars may go for a seminar and the similar company ask us to write a a creativity day camp program for them and we did and then we went out on the road we tested this creativity day camp across the country and it was very successful and so they bought it and they put it on their their menu of all the different courses that they have and then they had about 30 different trainers that actually trained the creativity day camp and one of the things we noticed when we were out there was they didn’t have any product that taught people how to be creative and so we said well why don’t we write a book for you and that you know you would put on the tables in the back of the room and so they said okay and we will conquer the brain they actually paid us a fee to write the book and we wrote the book conquer the brain drain and then we ended up selling it and they had all these trainers across the country that we’re selling it back of the room so the book did really really well it’s a book about leadership and it is also about how to have more creative meetings because when we were doing our research we found out that people said that two biggest causes of the demotivation in the workplace where boring meetings and poor leadership. so we combine the two to make a book about leaders and how they can make their meetings more interesting to keep people wanting to come back and be in the meeting and accomplish the goals of the meeting. and then we took the book to South Africa and we invited all the who’s who of the Johannesburg to a luncheon and we spoke and we had them as I guess we gave them all the copy of the book and Penguin Books picked it up in South Africa and it became ignite the spark 52 creative ways to fire up your team and it was an international bestseller from there.
Emmitt Muckles: you you’re busy individual you’ve done some things in
Judi Moreo: my mind never thought I’m always creating something new
Emmitt Muckles:if you could look back in time or if you could tell your yourself when you were let’s say 30 if you could give yourself some advice when you were 30 what would that be
Judi Moreo: i would say never give up on your dream i would say believe in yourself and i would say even when you don’t believe in yourself and you’re scared do it anyway just do it anyway because if you have this little spark of something inside yourself that you want to do you need to go do it in a few years ago I got cancer and the doctor looked at means that you have about a year left and when somebody tells you you’re gonna die you think oh my goodness did i do everything I wanted to do in this life bun did I did I handle myself by not having enough self-esteem by not just going ahead and doing things because there were so many things I wanted to do when I was younger that I didn’t do because I was scared or because I didn’t have the support or because someone said you can’t do that or you don’t have the education or you don’t have the money or you don’t do whatever and so when I got the cancer I made up my mind right then and there I am going to do for the rest of my life whatever it is I want to do I’m going to go after it I’m going to be it i’m going to have it i’m going to i’m going to just go forward and do it and you know what it has been incredible and and I applied my formula i have that little achieve more formula that i use and i applied it to my health I thought okay I don’t want to die in a year
the doctor can tell me I’m gonna die in a year how does he know. nobody knows i’m going to die except God right. so I made up my mind you be healthy and I just really really worked and it’s been seven years now and I’m healthier never been in my life.
Emmitt Muckles: now that is a blessing.
Judi Moreo: oh it is, it is a blessing because i had to make up my mind I wasn’t going to do the chemo I wasn’t going to do the radiation i was going to change the way i ate i was going to take care myself. so i would say to people like in their thirties i would say yes it’s important to be successful but take care of yourself eat what what you should be eating not just the stuff that we think we should be eating or that we don’t think about it all and exercise and get your rest and love yourself because, that’s what makes you well that’s what makes you healthy and whole and only when you’re healthy and whole can you go out and see the things you want to achieve
