Discover the compelling journey of our guest, Aunia Kahn, the dynamic CEO of Rise Visible, who overcame debilitating and undiagnosed illnesses. Aunia's story is far from ordinary, as she turned her personal trials into a powerful force that propelled her business to heights unimaginable. Her remarkable transformation, from undercharging as a self-employed business owner to understanding her worth and the market rates, is a vital lesson for every entrepreneur. We also chat about building connections, striking a balance between providing value and authenticity, and the criticality of separating work from personal life - an enlightening and enriching conversation that you wouldn't want to miss.



Who is Aunia Kahn?

 

Aunia Kahn is a multi-faceted entrepreneur and a globally awarded and collected artist/photographer, published author, curator, and inspirational speaker.

 

Kahn’s artistic journey started as a therapeutic response to a challenging upbringing and her enduring battle with chronic illnesses like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, Dysautonomia, and POTS. Art became a way to express herself and a survival mechanism, rather than an initial career pursuit.

 

Her artwork and photography weave together human and animal subjects, blending symbolism, nature, anatomy, and the profound themes of mortality and rebirth. Her chosen mediums include watercolor, colored pencil, ink, gouache, collage and a Nikon

 

Her work has been in over 300+ exhibitions in 10+ countries; at institutions such as San Diego Art Institute, iMOCA, St. Louis Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. She has lectured at colleges and universities, and has been featured in Yahoo, Prevention Magazine, Authority Magazine, and Entrepreneur on Fire.

 

Kahn’s influence extends beyond her own work; she’s honored to have served as both gallerist and curator for internationally recognized books and projects. She is also the owner of Rise Visible, a web design and digital marketing agency, as well as the founder of Create for Healing.

Do you ever wonder how the wealthy keep on accruing wealth while paying less in taxes? The secret might be in the use of trusts. Discover the ins and outs of this strategy with our insightful guest, Sally Gimon, owner of the Trust Is You. Sally shares her personal journey, transforming a $20,000 investment while also saving $10,550 in taxes along the way. She also talks about how a trust is not only for the affluent but can be a tool for anyone to significantly save on taxes.

 

Get ready to be inspired, educated, and motivated as we explore the expansive world of trusts and income-saving strategies. So buckle up, and let's start this exciting journey together!

 

Who is Sally?
Sally was motivated to become a real estate investor when her mom became sick in October 2018.  Sally was 53 and needed to make a change in her life quickly.  She has been an insurance agent for 20 years and has used her experience to make positive changes.  Now she shares her information weekly in her real estate group and Win, Win Women TV.

 

In July 2020, she bought a Bank Owned Property for $20,000 that would go to auction for $50,000 when Covid restrictions lifted. She knew her Capital Gains would be $7,140 and researched how the rich paid so little in taxes.  This led her to find the Business and Spendthrift Trusts.

 

Currently, Capital Gains are 23.8% on any profit. There is passed legislation to raise this to 40% for some tax levels.  The IRS is hiring 87,000 new agents. The Spendthrift Trust defers Capital Gains into infinity and beyond and keeps people's judgment proof, and their information private.

Get ready for a rollercoaster ride as we walk you through the incredible journey of Steve Cloward, owner of Advanced Home Pros. From renting out VHS tapes at 17 to building successful businesses, Steve's life is an inspiration. Despite grappling with Crohn's disease, a fierce battle with opiates, and a stint in prison, Steve not only came out stronger but also found a renewed sense of self. His story promises lessons on resilience, gratitude, and the power of inner wisdom. Steve's candid account of overcoming challenges, rebuilding his identity, and advice for those in a tough spot make this episode a must-listen. Join us for this enlightening conversation with Steve Cloward and grab some inspiration along the way.

 

Steve Cloward started Advanced Home Pros After the Real Estate crash in 2008 and 2009 when he decided it was time to look at other industries we could get involved in. With the frustration he had personally when calling his Television, internet, and other home service providers, he knew we could make a difference in this industry. He knew that finding home services and getting help with home services didn’t have to be this difficult after you had become a customer. Because he didn’t know the business, he knew how important it was to learn it by starting at the bottom and working his way up. He knew nothing about home services then, so he dived deep into learning about the industry. He knew that he wanted to make a change that made a difference in his life but also in the lives of others. He started down this path in 2010 and has helped over 10,000 customers with their TV, Internet, Home Security, and Solar services.

Today we are joined by a Sales Performance Expert, Speaker, Podcast Host, and the CEO of Helix Sales Development, Walter Crosby. He shares his riveting journey from being unexpectedly promoted to international sales director with zero experience in team management and how he successfully navigated this challenging period, growing revenue by a staggering 120% in just three years.

 

Walter also delves into the art of assembling an effective sales team and equipping them with the right tools for success. Learn how to craft a compelling company story that resonates with your sales team and sets your brand apart in the competitive marketplace. Tune in for a conversation jam-packed with insights for every work-at-home entrepreneur.

 

Walter is on a mission to help Visionary leaders build a high-performance sale organization with a consistently reliable revenue forecast to double revenue.

 

As CEO of Helix Sales Development, he only engages with growth-minded entrepreneurs who are frustrated with underperformance and have the desire & commitment to build a performance-based sales culture. His clients say the journey can be challenging; however, the results are transformative and produce repeatable revenue growth with margin integrity.

 

Walter is a proud alum of the University of Michigan and holds an advanced degree from the School of Hard-Won Wisdom.  He spent the majority of his career as a salesman who was frequently promoted to sales manager. He’s sold various products with complex B2B sales cycles, including LED luminaires, commercial signage, financial services, synchronized clock systems, and commercial fire alarm systems. He’s sold to K-12 educators, colleges/ universities, contractors, manufacturing, and commercial/retail firms.

 

Frustrated by the lack of training each time he was promoted to sales management roles, he sought training and mentors to help him grow as a leader. This led to creating his own firm, Helix, to hire, train, and influence successful sales teams. He has formed strategic relationships to augment the sales coaching services he provides. Walter is a certified partner with the Objective Management Group, an award-winning provider of evidence-based sales evaluation and assessment tools. Helix’s technology partner is Membrain.

 

Walter’s rocket fuel comes from coaching committed individuals to excel beyond what they thought was possible. Using the proven Helix Sales Hiring Process, 91% of Helix-recommended sales hires rise to the top half of the sales organization within the first year.

 

Those that know him best often find him reflecting over a fine cigar in his private cigar lounge. In fact, he regularly speaks about his two favorite passions as host of his podcast called Sales and Cigars.
