Episode 14: Brian Fouts Interview

Empowering People to Take Control of Their Personal Finances with Brian Fouts, CEO of The Elevation Group

For 10 years, Brian Fouts worked and traveled as a construction manager – but while following the straight and narrow, he accrued debt, struggled to make ends meet, and realized his time was controlled by someone else. He knew there was a greater journey to follow, and made a significant change after 2008, when he, his family and friends lost their homes, their life savings and financial security. He and his brother Jake began to educate themselves about how money, wealth and “real” investing worked. Learning strategies ranging from real estate to private lending to cash banking (including real estate single families and online investing), they began taking control of their financial destinies. As founders of The Elevation Group, they teach people how to get out of the rat race and create connections with those who can help them achieve their goals. Through their resources at EVG and investing ventures, they built Elevation Institute as a beacon to those looking for actionable education and resources to take control of their financial security.

Episode 12: Loral Langemeier Interview

Lance Edwards recently hosted Loral Langemeier, “The Millionaire Maker” on his Greenlight podcast, and Ms. Langemeier spoke in detail about her trademarked seven steps that people can take to create more wealth for themselves. The first is understanding your relationship to money. She teaches it not from the standpoint of just writing about it in a journal, talking about it and having therapy about it, but the importance of hands on experience. You’ve got to get out in the streets, to speak, and hang out with established entrepreneurs. It’s not just reading or audio books – you have to have the relationship in person. Ms. Langemeier tells people that the fastest way to know what millionaires think and how they act and behave is by spending time with them. You can read and fantasize all you want but it won’t manifest in your life unless there’s that personal connection. [Read More]
