1:15 Bradley offers "free frickin'coaching" to anyone on the call!!
4:50 Brad offers advise on getting crystal clear on the specific transformations desired for each mod.
7:15 Elijah says he's been battling tech rebels lately! OMG Elijah has a course launch "death counter" on his site with just 25 days until take off!!The question is : will Elijah's wife let him buy the $2,000.00 Samurai Armor outfit he SO desires for his next course? Deanna has the same launch date!
24:15 Akasha says that she keeps running out of room while recording on her iPhone.....is there a way to create more space on her phone such as an external jump drive? Brad shows us how to get rid of "recently deleted" images and videos which actually still reside on the iPhone taking up space! Trish posts an article with lots of other ideas and Brad chimes in with a few more as well.
Questions get ANSWERED here folks!
28:00 Akasha is next up...She speaks of Boundaries, centering, guardians and how being connected to your core is key! Brad comes up with a great idea for her Library theme.
46:00 Catherine asks for a better way to get her Samsung phone files to sync to her computer. Trish uses Samsung
48:10 It's Catherine's turn! Great insight here on using the "5 year vision" to see if what you are doing today is in or out of alignment with your goals.
Exercise: Ask yourself what word describes what had happened to you to bring you to this mission..rebellion? rehabilitation? Use that word to find your process!
Brad gives Catherine a hefty exercise: he proposes to play her client and asks her to create a weekly program for 30 days including exercises, routines, ceremonies, rituals etc...
1:02:20 Brad shows us his huge whiteboard and teaches Catherine his system for GSD! It's all about figuring out the tasks needed to accomplish your goal, how much time each task will take and committing to a "due date".
Organize your day by blocking out timed sections to include each task. The key is to commit and focus on just 1 thing at a time. His brilliant tip: "Know what you're gong to do tomorrow..TODAY!" And, complete at least 1 major accomplishment everyday!
August 31st, 2016 "Introvert & Extrovert eCourses"
3:50 Shoutout to Deanna who has completed her "Ultimate Customer Letter"!!!
6:40 Deanna mentions the unexpected inner work she has come up against while climbing the Mountain. The guys explain: the inner work was intentional when they created it and that Transformation/Liberation is baked right into the GEA course.
12:15 Brad describes the EPIC script writing day with Andy since redefining their perfect roles!
"The more you refine yourself as a human being and allow yourself to be fully expressed in who you are and what you stand for, the more kick ass your course will be!!"
14:20 Lisa asks how being either an introvert or extrovert can effect those of us creating eCourses.
16:00 How can introverts create a powerful learning experience without being the main on-camera focus? ? Brad offers up tons of ideas!
23:40 Andy describes how awkward he felt in the beginning days and how much easier it has become.
24:25 Brad's boyhood high-pitched voice had others calling him "Mrs. Morris" when he answered the phone! He became so self-conscious of his voice that he couldn't listen to his meditation tracks later in years.
33:33 Lorraine brings up a great point...being on camera in the comfort of your own home can be great for an introvert (as opposed to filming or performing in front of a live audience!)
35:50 Brad acknowledges that just because he's an extrovert doesn't mean he doesn't get nervous.
36:50 Breathing, intention setting and not trying to be someone you are NOT are all very helpful! Great exercise for introverts...take down 10 ideas to deliver your content that don't revolve around you being in front of camera the entire time. You do NOT have to be on camera to create a great course!3
39:13 Andy offers up a great idea: get an intern actor.George Lucas did NOT play Luke Skywalker...play to your strengths! Brad poses the question to Andy..how would he have created GEA without the extrovert Brad to lean on? Andy thinks long and hard...tough question.
48:28 Lorraine says she "goes until the inner pain is greater than she can push thru!" Brad: We are all being pulled to do our greatest work. Andy: what you WANT has got to out-way the resistance!
50:20 Deanna appreciates the GEA community support!!

14:00 The "real" Kimra Luna story....not an overnight success but a lifetime in the making. Very cool insight into the B and A story, how GEA came to be and how their unique form of E Learning developed followed by "What is Trans-media storytelling?" You will find out here!Andy says: Marketing is "storytelling" but, the stories being told have been "played"
23:50 Story time!! (this is where I wish I was the one bouncing on Brad's knee) Brad reads us an exciting, action-packed snippet from their newly drafted "Prequel" for the "Art of eCourse Adventure 2.0" (I'll be calling it AOEA2.0 from now on)An Eye-opening insight into their newest venture "Trans-media storytelling"...the story takes us to the VERY beginning which involves getting US onto their spaceship and preparing us for our mission! Sounds like the beginnings of a CULT guys...haha!(I'm IN...lead the way B and A!)
26:14 What was that?! Did Sauryn get a little too much bouncing?
26:30 The AOEA inappropriate "Porno questioner" REVEALED!! Learn WHY B and A will be sticking closer to the skill sets of each of their charactersin the next AOEA and WHO is behind this decision. From here, these guys get deep into the future GEA 2.0 incarnation and how Brad will become our Captain Kirk and Andy, our Dr. Spock!! Sooooo cool and FUN!! A great lesson on knowing your strengths/weaknesses and being willing to embrace CHANGE in order to make things work more efficiently.
35:00 Catherine feels "relief" upon hearing easier and fun ways to be on video.Brad and Andy give hope to those of us who don't like being in front of the camera. They insist that there are NO rules and infinite creative possibilities for us to deliver a powerful media experience without being on camera! Yay!!!!!
35:40 Introducing Sharyn! Highest of fives as she has delivered her very first WEBINAR, "A Walk in the Park"!! She speaks of the "invisible non-authenticity" and how she USED to believe she had to conquer her non-strengths to make things work. That was BEFORE her 2 on 1 coaching session with B and A!No more "shoulding" on herself! "The power is in our Wyrd" ...LOVE that Sharon!Tons of huge insights from Sharyn on pulling off her 1st webinar experience!(
47:00 Baby Sauryn is cooing...so sweet!
49:25 we get to SEE Sauryn's adorable face!)
50:10 Brad on the Creative Vision Quest...Is the joy and inspiration greater than the resistance? If not, what to do and questions to ask to make it so! Step #1. UNPLUG!!
53:05 Q and A! Haha, our tech master Andy says (and I quote): "there's a couple questions on the thingy"
53:25 Elijah asks about web hosting. Andy says Go Daddy is the McDonalds of web hosting (popular but low in quality!) Traffic Planet Hosting gets a huge smile out of Soren and is #1 with Andy. What is a "Managed WordPress Host"?
59:40 The big B and A PIVOT!! Change is hard and sometimes we wish everything could stay the same. But, our boys must grow and we need to be here to support!We're pioneering and mixing with the pubes (public) on Wednesdays to expand the GEA community. The time has come to save the world from being flushed down the sales funnel! (Andy-ism) What the heck does he mean? Learn all about it here!
1:07:30 Andy: "Really, all we're doing is telling stories" His golden nuggets (crafted from his golden goblet): "Craft a compelling enough story to get someone to take action. And: There is no limit to the ways of telling a story...find the way that works best for you. Brad: Figure out what you're here to tell/teach and what transformation you're here to facilitate.
1:09:50 Final announcements and reminders including how to become a GEA affiliate! Brad unapologetically admits that "thingy" is a technical term he uses often.Andy is out and we are left with a full-sized vision of the bouncing Brad and Sauryn.

23:00 YES. We get a glimpse of Andy's Gold Goblet!!
23:10 Andy expands on how taking "the Longcut" road and "staying the course" has helped them to see opportunities and "luck" that are finally starting to blossom!

The guys work hard to unpack this one and settle on a few gems: the mind doesn't like to commit to things when there is no tangible return, if you find yourself asking "are you CRAZY", you are on the right path and the voice telling you that you can't or shouldn't might not be your own!
