From millionaire to decamillionaire to broke and back again in a whole new way and faster than ever – those are some of the credentials that may get you interested in listening to what our guest Marx Acosta-Rubio has to say.
Today’s podcast was filled to the max by Marx. We’re not exaggerating when we say we could have gone on for at least twice as long in just this episode. Who doesn’t appreciate a story of a fall from grace to a stunning Phoenix-like rebirth?
With so much actionable mindset advice based on his own experience, it’s no wonder he’s got a bevy of GTD-ers lining up to take his 90-day challenge. As we listened to his business savvy around setting priorities, following the 80/20 principle and thriving in business, when Marx offered, we jumped at the chance to enroll in the challenge ourselves.
We’re so busy these days getting out of our own way, we can’t imagine what’s next. This is a buckle down kind of episode. You may want to mark this one off in your schedule so you have enough time to take notes and develop a plan of action with all the takeaways hiding inside.
If you like some of what Marx has to say, be sure to check out these past episodes with James Schramko and Christy Whitman that really hit home about gaining clarity, taking aligned action and abundance.
