Freddy Owen: Got an awesome guest today, Mr. Russell Beebe.

Freddy Owen: He wants to help you eat better. He wants to help you think better and awaken spiritually. You can't beat that, right. Let's go

My Beautiful Wife Kristy: Thank You for listening to the Freddie O Show, a podcast devoted to you, the listener, your purpose, your mindset, and your marketing efforts designed to help you go to that next level. Now here's your host, Freddy O!

Freddy Owen: Gosh, you are awesome and I thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to listen to episode number two, number two of the Freddy O show. This is Freddy Owen, and now before I get to our special guest rockstar today, I wanted to extend the invite to a brand new Facebook group.

So question, do you want to eat better? I do. How about think better? I think we can always think better. Maybe even give your spirituality a wake up call, well giddy up. All three of those things are what our next guest thrives on. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, Russell Beebe, welcome to the radio show Russell. And I'm super pumped to have you on. Welcome.

Russell Beebe: Thank you so much for having me, Freddy.

Freddy Owen: So we can get started right off the rip and just ask you Russell who is Russell Beebe and what makes you tick?

Russell Beebe: Yeah, absolutely. So I am formerly a musician, a French horn player, turned into a therapist, counselor and a clinical director and then reformed to what I like to call a life and wellness coach. And I do that work online. Basically. So I help people with their wellness. I help them with their life purpose. It's a little bit like counseling but it's a little bit, a little bit different than doing clinical work. So that's basically basically what I do. I'm a life and wellness coach.

Freddy Owen: Okay. So what, what actually made you dive into that particular niche? Was it something that you would just because of your past or is it something deeper, something more personable, personal for you?

Russell Beebe: Yeah, that's a really good question,, so and I can kind of give you a, I'll try to give you sort of the brief version of this. So I was a musician and I was doing that thing and then over my life, I would say about 20 years ago, I started to recognize that I had some pretty significant addiction problems with alcohol and drugs. And I got into AA and I was sober for a bunch of years. Eventually relapsed, kind of went on sort of a about a year and a half of a, of what I would consider to be a pretty horrific bender. And I ended up back in, in substance abuse treatment, got sober again, started cultivating health and wellness in my life and then decided I wanted to, I really liked helping people. That began for me in the 12 steps.

And as soon as I started doing that, I realized, you know, maybe I could be a therapist cause I found that I was like counseling. I was sponsoring them, but I was also counseling them. So I went back to school and got a graduate degree in mental health counseling and that was probably about nine and a half, 10 years ago. And then I went through sort of a sort of a stream of different types of jobs in the mental health and addictions field. You know, out doing outreach, doing outpatient therapy. And then eventually I landed as the clinical director of a substance abuse treatment center up in New Hampshire, which I worked in for about three and a half years until the end of February. And that's kind of like where I came from in terms of helping people and, and you know, doing health and wellness work was really out of my own, my own recovery in the 12 steps on my own. Like really my need to get healthy in my life so that I could kind of live a good life. Because when I didn't, when I don't do that, drugs and alcohol happened and really bad things happen.

Freddy Owen: Oh, a hundred percent agree. And like, for instance, right now with the pandemic it has affected a lot of people. It surely is showing a lot of people their weaknesses they maybe didn't even realize they had. And if you look at the liquor stores, they're the most packed places right now with, you know, people are falling back into previous addictions. It's really, really frustrating. So it's, it's good that you, that you're doing this for people. It's helping people out. So when was the moment that turned the idea machine on that made you want to take your passion online and bring it to the masses?

Russell Beebe: Yeah, that's a, that's a really great question. I'm so glad you asked that because it's like, it literally gets me pumped up to think about and I, and I, like literally yesterday I did, I talked about this live in my Facebook group, so but yeah, so, and I know exactly when this happened. It was probably early September, 2000 I had been working as the clinical director of this substance abuse treatment center up in New Hampshire. And there I was again once again in my life, very unhappy in a job. And I was in a sort of a corporate structure. I was stressed. I'm working 50, 60, 70 hours a week. I'm getting calls on the weekends, you know, it's, am, I'm frustrated with staff, great program, you know what I mean? Doing a lot of good stuff, good help with people.

But once again, I was miserable at my job. And I remember having, you know, doing what I do as somebody that's in recovery is you sort of get quiet and kind of ponder what's going on with yourself. And I was like, I knew because I had had several different jobs that it wasn't the jobs that were to blame. It wasn't the sir, the like the, the employer that I, that was to blame. I started to realize that it was jobs in general. Like the thing that you, that people do where they go to work for 40 hours a week, they get two weeks of vacation and they live till they're 75 and hope that they have enough retirement so that they can retire and live off the money that they make. I had, I realized in that moment back in 2017 that I had an issue with that.

And I also realized that I really wanted more freedom in my life. And it's funny, this interesting thing happened. I suddenly got turned on to a book that talked about you know, passive income. It talked about being an entrepreneur and you know, outsourcing some of the things that you do and being a business owner. And I got very much interested and then how that, the internet could make that possible that the internet could make it possible. If I had a business that was online, I could run that business from anywhere. So like my parents have a place down in Rhode Island. I could be in Rhode Island or I could be on a vacation and then I would have the freedom to run the business the way that I wanted to do. So I started to realize the power of the internet in order to do that.

And I set out rather obsessively to find sort of my niche for that. Because I was, I was clear that that's what I wanted to do. And the reason and the why and the reason I wanted to do that is I wanted to get away from the nine to five grind of a job, do my own thing, be able to work wherever I, wherever I, you know, from where, anywhere in the world. And then to be able to scale that to a point where I could make a living doing that. And that's kinda like, that was the, the epiphany that I had. And it was a long journey to get where I am now. You know, where I am doing that. I'm not working a job and I'm making a living online.

Freddy Owen: That's awesome man. Let me ask a question. Do you ever have a point in time where you stray away from your passion? You know, your focus and get hit between the eyes, the old shiny object syndrome? Because a lot of entrepreneurs struggle with that. And did you ever struggle with that? Because it's very easy to do in this space.

Russell Beebe: I did shiny object like you wouldn't believe actually. And I, by the way, when I say that, a lot of people say, you know, there, there is some negative connotation to that, but I have to tell you that every shiny object I followed, I learned a ton from. And I learned about what I didn't want to do. And I also learned about the game of life. You know what I mean? So like I always tell people when I, when I coach them like nothing is ever lost. Okay. And I spent a lot of money going down different sentences, shiny objects, believe me and my wife was starting to get very unhappy with that. I did start out, I started out with a random online money making thing, but I did quickly kind of turn into like, I wanted to take my recovery experience and my experience as a counselor and utilize that.

So like the course idea and the ebook idea was there. But I went down, I went down some rabbit holes with affiliate marketing which is awesome stuff by the way. Like I have no problem with that. That just wasn't my cup of tea. So I went these different ways and some, you know, and, and bought a lot of different courses and, and set out on a trajectory going one way and then it wouldn't, didn't turn out very good. And then I'd do a 180 degree turn. So, yeah, I mean I did the shiny object thing like, like crazy. 

Freddy Owen: But it's good though that you went through that?

Russell Beebe: Yes, it was a good, no, it was a good thing. I don't now that I'm actually successful, I look back at it and I go, everything that I did was for a reason and I learned a ton from it and I met a lot of good people. I met you through that process. You know what I mean? I met Bob Beckett through that process. My current coach that I have, Mark Crandall, I mean like, Oh, like I met him through that process. So it's, it's

Freddy Owen: Because you can look at it in two different ways. You can look at it. Either A. I lost a lot of money, okay. Or B, I learned from my mistakes and the shiny object syndrome and I'm going to get better not do those mistakes again because here's the thing. A lot of people do the same mistakes over and over again. They just don't learn from the previous mistakes and that's why they fail. I like to put it like this. If you're driving on the road and you see a brand new building, my wife loves like new restaurants. She's like, Oh look, there's a new Starbucks getting built here. That's fantastic. So, if you're driving on the road, you see a brand new business, it's got a nice shiny new sign and you can tell that they're like pumped the rate at the grand opening and boom, they're up and ready to go.

So then you drive down the same road five years from now. The signs dilapidated. It's like they gave up on their idea. They gave up because either a business was not as easy as it was supposed to be. You know, B, they lost their passion, but usually it's because they don't know how to reignite that fire every day. Like, okay, I'm going out there to do what I am. You know, my purpose, what I am blessed to do. And a lot of people cannot keep that mentality. They just give up. And it's frustrating

Russell Beebe: Real quick. The problem that I had. But the problem that I see with shiny object syndrome is that a lot of the programs people join part of the marketing sends a message that this is going to be easy and it's not easy starting your own business. All the people that are like working four hours a week, they were, they've grinded like nuts. Absolutely. To get there so you can get to that point. I'm not there yet. I'm still working. I'm still working my butt off seven days a week to grow my business and I love it. Like I would do it all day if I could, you know what I mean? But eventually I want to get to a point where some of that stuff is outsourced and I can, you know, get some freedom. But the problem is people expect it to be easy and it's a lot harder than people think, but if you stick with it, the miracle will happen. You know what I mean? Like that's just, I'm just here to say that.

Freddy Owen: And the sad thing is that some people don't give themselves enough time. They could be right there. Right at that point to where they're about to cross that momentum, that tipping point and they give up. And it's something I've come to realize that after  coaching a lot of people is that I used to take it very personal if they did not succeed, but if they don't want it bad enough, there's nothing you can do, you know, no matter what motivates them, to encourage them. There's nothing that you can do to make them want something bad enough. Usually they just, they don't have that tenacity that has needed to run their own business and it is just frustrating. But I guess they're more, it's easy for them to just go to a 40 hour work week and be told what to do by somebody else and actually do it for themselves. And I truly believe that there are people out there that give up way too easy and if they just stuck with it, they'd be in great shape. They just got to stick with it. Now, what would, what kind of advice would you give to somebody brand spanking new about the dive into the online world and getting ready to start their own online business or actually regular business? What advice would you give them? Like you're starting from scratch

Russell Beebe: The best way, If I was to go back and do it all over again, the best advice that I would do is to find a mentor or a coach that can do two things. One, help you identify exactly what you want to do. You know what I mean? Rather than going like all these different directions, like to really dig in. I didn't get that coaching, that particular coaching until it was about like the middle of March actually, where I was forced by a coach to like identify exactly, like what's my, why? Why am I doing this? How do I want to help? What's my niche going to be? And then to develop a plan to go and do that. And then to, and then, so for that to be, to, to have a process where a person can get really clear on what it is that they want to do and then go into it and with the understanding that it's going to be a lot of hard work it's not this easy plug and play thing that you see everybody promising out there.

I mean, I still get the emails, learn how to make a thousand dollars a day. I'm just like, that's, that disgusts me. Like, are you kidding me? Like, I don't, can't tell you how many times I tried that BS, you know what I mean? So that's kind of like, to sort of realize that and then to just do that long enough for, you know, to, to stay the course long enough for the miracle to happen, you know what I mean? Like I'm in a place, I spent two years figuring this out. I'm in a place where I have my own business. It's paying the bills, I'm working from home and I love the work that I do. But that took me two and a half years to get there.

Freddy Owen: And like you said, you coach people. So have you ever had an issue where like when I coach people, there's been times where I've had to have like some, a tough love type kind of talk. Like, Hey listen, you know, I told you to go ahead and do this last week and then you're asking me, you know, what do I do? And you didn't do the first thing. Have you ever had that, that tough love kind of talk? Because sometimes, you know, people need to be like woken up and say, Hey, listen, you know, you paid for this. You know, why aren't you doing the work? Put in the work?

Russell Beebe: I, to be honest with you, I have like, so I just started being profitable in my business. I have enrolled, I have six in my wellness coaching program. Okay. And then one that I'm doing kind of that I'm about to do some business coaching with. She wants to learn how I did what I did. So I'm going to show her how I became a coach and a consultant. I, I have a package that costs a certain amount of money and I have found that when people commit to this financially and emotionally and they have to commit on the front end, most of the time to two months with me, I have found those people that commit like that financially and emotionally they're doing the work. So my experience as a therapist doing like people come in for a week for like an hour session and then go and they come back the next week and they don't do anything I asked him to do.

That hasn't been so much my, my experience with coaching just yet. But I will, I'll tell you what, that conversation, so I just started and I'm sure that's going to happen. I'll tell you what that conversation is going to look like. It's going to look like, Hey, you paid me X amount of dollars and yet you're not doing anything that I'm asking you to do. Can we talk about why that's going on? And then I, as a therapist, I would dig in like, why is this happening with you? Try to get that person to pull their head out of their butt and get them moving forward. That's what a coach does. It's like on a football field,

Freddy Owen: Right? Yeah. Oh yeah. And then people, it's like they care more about what other people think than about themselves. And that is just really, it's sad. It's frustrating. It's sad. I love the football coach reference by the way. I always do football coach references. And personally I like to have a real targeted list. Everybody says it yet to have a huge list, a huge email list. I just want to have a targeted tribe of people that are go getters that want to make a difference in their life. And honestly then they give me great feedback that they learned something and they're successful. That's huge to me. So here's a question. Uif you were like Forrest Gump, hopefully you've seen Forrest Gump. Have you seen Forrest Gump?

Russell Beebe: Yeah, it's been awhile, but yes. Okay,

Freddy Owen: Good. So what would you want to build a tribe and just FYI, everybody Russell has a free Facebook group. We're going to go ahead and put the link in the show notes, so make sure you check that out. You can join that and that's awesome. And then you're gonna get something else for free when I talk about the, at the end of the show, but what would you Russell want them to follow you for? Like Forrest Gump was running, you know, because he loved running, but they believed in his vision, his mission.

Russell Beebe: I think the one thing that a person would follow, so I would say people, let's not talk about acute mental health, acute mental health issues or, or acute addiction issues. There's a lot of people in the world that are like me and you and they, and they have this, this section of their life, like 20 to 30% of their life where they are somewhat miserable. Like maybe it's having trouble getting out of bed in the morning. Maybe it's eating bad, it's wanting to lose an extra 40 pounds. Maybe, you know, they get a lot, they have a little more anxiety than they would like to have. There's some kind of wellness or health issue that they're, that they're having, the people that I work with mostly have something like that going on and they desperately need a program that can show them how to cultivate a daily wellness routine where they, where they sort of, they, they achieve the goal of that 20 or 30% in their life to kind of level up in their wellness. And that's what people would follow me for.

Freddy Owen: And I think that the people that are going to actually follow you, like Forrest Gump are ones that can really admit that they have an issue. A lot of people don't do that. Like on Facebook, you see everybody's highlights. You don't see all the lowlights that sometimes people have, but everybody has something you've never arrived. If you think you've arrived, I think you need to do a gut check because no matter what, you're continually climbing, getting better, getting better every day without fail, no exceptions. And honestly, it's brave to do that. It's brave to say, okay, listen, I have an issue and I need to make it better. So I'm going to go ahead and get Russell's coaching to make my situation better. That would be huge for somebody because guess what, one little thing can change your life for the long run. You know, and that's what's so powerful about what you do.

So if you're listening to this and you do have an issue, you want to get better with your health, you want to get better with your regimen, you want to get better with your mindset. Russell has a coaching program and we're going to show you how to get a hold of Russell at the end of the show. Or you can look at the show notes because guess what? He's somebody that you want to call and take advantage of his services. So let's switch gears. Let's talk about daily rituals. If there was only one daily ritual that you could do what would you, which one would you do? What would you say? What would, which one would you do? Not sacrifice.

Russell Beebe: Yeah, hands down. Absolutely. And by the way, this is 95% of why I sit here feeling healthy and well in my life for the most part I'm like a 9.5 on a scale of 10, right? Is the morning routine, period. End of story. Which basically is prayer, meditation, some reading visualization, some writing. There's a couple other things. It's sort of like the miracle morning, how L L Rod's miracle morning. If I miss that morning routine the day is much more difficult for me and if I, but if on the other hand I do it, everything flows really nicely from there. So that's, that's what I would say.

Freddy Owen: That's fantastic. But what I want you to do Russell's, I want you to give me one. You're running late, you have no choice but to pick one of those habits or rituals, which one would you not sacrifice?

Russell Beebe: For me it is sitting down with a pen and a paper and writing out my goals and writing out a plan for the day. And it's pretty brief. It's a writing process.

Freddy Owen: Oh yeah. That's fantastic. That's some gravy right there. So your whole morning routine, all the things you described earlier, how long does that usually take you to accomplish every morning?

Russell Beebe: My whole morning is about an hour, but I can do it in 20. If I really need to.

Freddy Owen: Also, Russell obviously when you first started out, it took a lot longer. When you first started doing the routine then it does like right now.

Russell Beebe: Yeah. You mean longer than an hour?

Freddy Owen: Yeah. Like for instance, I started this app, it's called elevate and cause I like to stay sharp. I like to stay sharp and I'm glad I started doing this. But this thing notifies you every morning at a certain time. Hey, listen, let's go through your training. You know, and then it just keeps your mind sharp. And there's been times I've looked at it and I've had to force myself to go ahead and, and like dive into it because a, I was getting frustrated because some of the stuff that they were having me do was really frustrating. I just wasn't getting it and I was like, dang, I feel dumb. But here's the thing. It just, it's not my forte, but it really does help me stay sharp. So, exactly. And it goes back to doing it for you.

Russell Beebe: Yeah, that's right. And the funny thing is is I couldn't even force myself to do any of it. The turning point for me was when I was in substance abuse treatment, this was over 10 years ago. I could, they wouldn't let you sleep in. I couldn't even get out of bed in the morning. I couldn't get up when the alarm went off. So I was forced to get up when I was in treatment and it created this habit and then I started to feel the benefits of it. And so then it wasn't difficult to get up in the morning. So it's kind of weird. Like I didn't, I didn't feel like one day I need to start getting up in the morning. I just couldn't do it at all. And so at first it was, it was a struggle to, to be like, I'd rather be sleeping right now. But as soon as I started doing that, day after day, I started feeling the benefits and I was fine. So, yes, I mean it did, it did take, there was a period of discomfort of some, you know, you know, a week, two weeks or something like that where I had to, I had to do that new habit for it to become automatic. If that makes sense.

Freddy Owen: Absolutely it does. Now, Russell, I like to try different things. Have you ever heard of the cold shower thing in the morning where you wake up and you jump into the shower and all you do is take a cold shower and it's miserable? Have you ever heard of that?

Russell Beebe: Yes. You know, it's funny. I, I'm literally, and I can, I can show you right here, day 62, this is my book that I write on. I'm on day 62 of cold showers. I got turned on to it from somebody that I met actually about a year ago. And this covert thing went down and then somebody was like, Hey, you want to do a cold shower challenge? I did. It was like a 21 day challenge. Unbelievable. So, yes.

Freddy Owen: Yeah. I, yeah, I, I, I've, I've tried it out. And the thing is, I don't know what is cold, what is considered a cold shower because if you turn it all the way to cold, it's horrific. It feels terrible. And I fought through it, but it like sort of put my body into a crazy shock mentally and it didn't feel good. I just need to know what is cold.

Russell Beebe: I asked that question at the beginning when I started this chat. This guy, by the way, his name is Jesse Harless, he wrote a book called Smash Your Comfort Zone with cold showers. It's really good. You could listen to it on audible in about an hour. Anyway, he goes over that and he, and it's, but I asked this question when I started the challenge, how cold is cold and he basically said 68 degrees or less is fine. That's not bad.

Freddy Owen: No, that's like pool water temperature.

Russell Beebe: So you can, but I want to tell you my experience though. You can also start, you can do a hot shower and rinse off for a couple of minutes cold. But here's what I experienced at first. I would do it moderately cold and I've got good benefits from that. After about a month of doing that, I started to, I had this period where I was really struggling doing them. Like I didn't want to do it and I felt really uncomfortable doing it and I went to, and from that point I went as cold as I could get it, like the thing pinned on cold. So now for, I would say for the last 20 days or so, I've been doing it like piping cold to the point where I have to like back out of the shower sometimes. You know what I mean?

And there's something about doing that that pushed it to another level for me. And part of the reason I started doing that and I started seeing all these pictures of the Wim Hof method of people sitting in like in baths with with ice cubes and things like that. And so it intrigued me there. But I just found there's something easier for me about doing the like extreme cold thing and just like taking deep breaths and just being uncomfortable for five minutes and then I get out and I just feel like on the top of the world,

Freddy Owen: Yeah, five minutes. Yeah. You know, here's the thing, I'm going to get back to it. It's, but I can tell you right now, it was, it was crazy when I first started doing it, but I also had it down to probably 30 degrees or well, not 30, but you know, low. It was all the way to the, the cold end of it, the spectrum. And it was, it was beaten me up. I was like breathing like crazy. I had to get my breathing under control, but 68 isn't, is it 68 degrees isn't too bad. I'm actually even lower than that isn't too bad. So yeah, I'm definitely going to get back to it and and do that, cause I know the benefits really are amazing, is what I've been told. So obviously it's the game changer for you.

Russell Beebe: My life. I was fairly I don't have it high, a degree of anxiety when I started doing this and stress in my life. But I would say from my baseline, which that bad, I would say 20 or 30% reduction in my overall stress and anxiety. It was like really profound from like day one. It was unbelievable. So it's very powerful and apparently it's good for your immune system. Like, which is good these days with the Covid thing going on. He talked about all the science of it in that book and stuff like that. So.

Freddy Owen: Well, I'm definitely gonna grab that book, so yeah. Okay. So we're going to switch gears now to the digital marketing aspect of what we do in this industry. There's a good, the bad and the ugly. What would you do if you had a button? What would you do to change? What one thing would you change in the industry? Because I think we both know there's a dark side to the industry.

Russell Beebe: I mean it's just what I was saying earlier, I think that this message that jump on to this thing and you can, you know, make X amount of dollars a day working 30 minutes a day, like that whole thing. Like I just, that makes me ashamed of being part of the digital world to be honest with you.

Freddy Owen: Yeah, and that's, that's understandable. The sad thing is if it's too good to be true, it's, it's most likely not true. And it's great that a lot of the companies, the networks have really cracked down on some of these guys that were putting out straight garbage offers and taking advantage of people. You know, they were here one day and then the next day they're gone. It's just, it's a shame.

Russell Beebe: One, one quick, one other thing I would say is don't, don't underestimate organic. A lot of people are paying for clicks and Facebook ads and all that's really good. But I, I, I've been successful with organic at this point and I spent a ton of money paying for ads that I didn't, I didn't need to. I may at some point to scale, but you can grow this deal. Organic and social media is really good with it if you're willing to put the effort in, you know what I mean? So

Freddy Owen: Yeah, you gotta put in the work, you gotta put in the work, you got to, you know, step out of your comfort zone every day. There was a point in time in which I had a hard time doing that. I kept on looking at everybody else and how they were doing things. And it's good to, you know, learn from people, but you have to make it your own. If you don't make it your own and you don't put in the work, you're not gonna get anywhere. You know, there's nothing, my, my father always just telling me, you know, there's nothing for free. Okay. You're not, you know, some people consider, think it's free, but in the long run it's going to cost you time and a lot of headaches. So realize you've got to put in the work and eventually it's going to pan out and be successful. And unfortunately, some people don't want to put in the work. So do me a favor. If you're listening to this and you really want something bad enough, you're going to go ahead. You have to put the work and you're going to get dirty and you're going to have some struggles, some roadblocks, but make sure you fight through them. So Russell, what are you going to be giving away to the audience today? I know we've got the Facebook group. What else are we looking at as far as they can get from you? To learn a little bit more about you?

Russell Beebe: Yeah, absolutely. So I have a free training where I basically talk about the top three things that I have done in my life to be consistent in a health and wellness routine. And how that basically became automatic because of the ways that I did it. And because of the quick benefits that I got from, from, you know, doing a daily routine. And I actually in this, in this training I talk about, it's funny cause I did, I planned out the training and it kind of went differently than I had expected. I talk a lot about my own depression and trouble getting out of bed in the morning and sort of trouble, you know, being a successful human being and showing up for life and all that thing. And I talk about my struggles getting into recovery and, and all the things that you need to do in terms of mind, body, spirit with healthy eating and meditating and exercising, you know, mind, body, spirit stuff.

So it's a, it's basically a free training where I talk about how I got to where I am in my life and and you know, the main points that people need to sort of realize in order to get to a point where they can kind of level up their health and wellness. You know, whether that be they're eating poorly or, or whether that be they're feeling depressed or they have a high degree of anxiety. There's certain things that are common amongst everybody that they can do to get to a point where they have this routine where they, you know, literally transformed their lives. I'm seeing it in my coaching clients now cause that's how I have structured my coaching program.

Freddy Owen: Fantastic brother. Okay, so definitely you guys want to go to winwithfred.com/podcasts, and you can get the show notes, get everything that Russell has offered, join his Facebook group. You want to definitely go ahead and do that because I'm gonna tell you something. This guy is a super, super wealth of knowledge, has tons of knowledge and wisdom and he's been through, he's been through it, you know, so if you're struggling with your mindset, your purpose and anything like that, definitely go ahead and go to the podcast notes and hit Russell up and take advantage of what he has offered today. 

So now we are going to have a little bit of a, I'm going to call this the, what can I call this? This is going to be called the super fast, super hyper fast Q and A round where I'm going to ask you some crazy questions and you give me the answer if they're, they're not going to be anything that can be off the wall questions, but I want to see what your answers are and just have some fun with it. So here we go. So question number one, would you rather have a third eye or a third arm?

Russell Beebe: A third eye.

Freddy Owen: Okay. A third eye. So why would you want a third eye?

Russell Beebe: I think there's some real spiritual significance to that. As a person that meditates every day. I don't know. I feel I get a lot of pleasure out of my visual sense. So that's why.

Freddy Owen: Yeah. And I would have a third eye too, but I wear glasses. So if you can imagine where that I would be probably in the middle of your forehead. Glasses. It would be really weird unless they invent that down the road, but they may, who knows? Okay. Second question. Do you watch Seinfeld or have you watched Seinfeld in the past?

Russell Beebe: Yes.

Freddy Owen: Perfect. What is your favorite Seinfeld episode of all time?

Russell Beebe: Okay. I don't know what it's called, but it's the one where George, I gotta explain this. Is that okay?

Freddy Owen: Absolutely. I'm a huge Seinfeld fan, so please explain a way I love, love, love Seinfeld.

Russell Beebe: This is really cool because it relates to like sort of a surrender and kind of a relaxing principle that I talk about sometimes in my coaching. So George comes into the, into the coffee shop. Jerry sitting there, I don't know if Elaine's there or not, but George sits down with Jerry and he's like, my whole life has been a complete disaster my whole life. Everything I've done has been wrong. I've done everything wrong in my life. Something like that. I'm kind of paraphrasing. Jerry says, well, why don't you try doing the opposite of what you've always done? And George goes like, yeah, that's interesting. And it goes over to a lady that's sitting at the bar in the coffee shop and he's like, hi, I'm George. I'm fat, I'm bald. And I live with my parents and she goes, hello, hi. He stopped showing up to work and they give him a promotion. He just completely gives up on life and like relaxes and all these great things start to happen. I think it ends up like snowballing and it starts, it gets really bad, but by the end of the thing. But it makes me realize how much we grip up on life sometimes. And it's like when I relax and sit back a little bit, sometimes really great things happen. You know what I mean?

Freddy Owen: Yes. 100%. Sometimes you have to slow down to speed up. Slow down to speed up. Okay. So here's is a 3 part question. If you are a pro wrestler, what would your stage name be? What would be your entrance music and what would be your signature move?

Russell Beebe: I gotta make up a name. Okay. Live in Lavita. Loca I'd be a Luchador. I'm thinking that live in Lavita. Loca what was the second part of that?

Freddy Owen: What would your intro music be for your wrestler? What was your intro music? What music gets you pumped up? Ready to rock and roll?

Russell Beebe:I would say Chalk Dust Torture by Phish.

Freddy Owen: I have never heard of Chalk Dust Torture, by Phish, but I'm going to Google it by fish. And now what is your, what is Russell Beebeā€™s signature move?

Russell Beebe: Mmm. I dunno why, but I'm picturing myself and I know that that could not even ever do this, but I'm picturing a backflip off a ladder, mid ring. Okay. Onto somebody's body slam.

Freddy Owen: So the BB crush, huh? 

Russell Beebe: There you go. 

Freddy Owen: Yeah, buddy. Okay. So thank you for your answers. Now how can people get a hold of you? We talked about the free giveaway on winwithfred.com/podcasts.

so thoughtful of you to put up such an amazing content on life and wellness,,, it is really necessary that one should get a coach to set aside you to prepare on how best to face life it goes a long way  to preparing you I heard of what you intend to encounter…… awesome review keep up the good work

Thanks for the feedback! Russell is a class act :) 

The best part of the website is that in the beginning you always make sure that the guest on the Podcast gets his best qualities highlighted so the visitor knows what to expect in the rest of the web site (Podcast).

Your language is very positive and relevant in your dialog with your guest and it is very uplifting to hear about. I also think that the dialog with your guest is very authentic like for example Russell Beebe was working 50,60 and 70 hours a week feeling miserable in his job. And then come the keyword to me which was “Passive income” and if you have an income on the internet you could run it from “anywhere” if your find your niche.

And he bought a lot of different stuff to find – and he learned a lot from his mistakes. I’s always good to hear an authentical story as from a person as Russell Beebe and then He also find a mentor – as I did because it saves time and often it cuts 9/10 of the learning curve, when you first have taken the decision.

And he also has a Facebook group called wellness seekers community. So, He can help other people.

A very uplifting story… I hope it was okay with this little comments to a very honesty person, who learned me a lot.

Always want to be positive, 100%.Russell is a Rockstar :) Thanks for tuning in!

Really appreciate the podcast and sharing the info.  I love the idea of eating better as being the basis.  Personally I have found that when I reduce the amount of caffeine and sugar, that I think a bit more clearly and have more focus.  I got out of the Marines and was addicted to energy drinks mostly and for the longest time, I didn’t think that had any crazy effects on me but looking back can see how that one simple thing had changed so many other things for me.  

This obviously compounds and spills into other areas of life!  Got a lot of value and thank you for sharing!

You hit the nail right on the head Rob! Simple tweaks in your life can take you to higher peaks!

“Give your spirituality a wake-up call.” I love this phrase and, as corny as it may sound, I think it’s definitely what the world needs now, even more so with the stresses of the global pandemic we are still facing. Thanks for having such an inspiring guest on your show, Freddy, and thank you so, so much Russell for sharing your story.

Thank you for listening! #FaithFocusFinish

Thanks for the intro to Russell.  I’m impressed with the cold shower thing!  I had not heard of this kind of therapy for stress.  Totally clicks with what I have seen in my lifetime, and gives me some new wellness ideas to think about adding to my routine.  Thanks for providing the text for your interview as well.  Like to hear the information, then scan through the text.  Seems to help me retain more.

Your subject of helping people figure out how to live better lives is also interesting to me.  I have always thought that only weak people needed personal coaches  I have quickly learned only the strong will allow someone to help them. As I see how many successful people give credit to personal coaching it is slowly sinking in that this is important.  

The idea that being a better person just happens is such a falsehood.  Getting on the right track for you and your life can be such a lifesaver.  I think that addicts have a lot to benefit from personal help.  I am a food addict in that I eat when bored.  Instead of getting busy with the many chores an online business presents, it is easy to grab a snack.  Then the peaceful feeling that eating creates and you could care less about priorities, just what it takes to get by.  Reading about the help available is encouraging to me.  Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the feedback Sami! I too am a food addict, it can be a way to deal with stress, or to just give you a feeling of comfort. We all have some type of addiction, and realizing it is a big step towards recovery.

I like the part when he said that in order to carry out his goal for the day, he would take a few minutes to write it out before starting. I think that it is one of the best methods a disciplined person can use to get through the day. The cold shower challenge thing, I would pass on that in the winter. Ha! Ha! I think that the overall conversation was very interesting and straight forward. Russell Beebe’s plans for self improvement are workable if the individual find a common ground within his/her self to apply them. Like you said Freddy, it can take longer for an individual to put his/her plan on paper when first starting out, which Russel acknowledged. But practicing day after day would make it easier as he pointed out.

💯John! Everyone is different, the key is actually getting started 👍 

Thank you Fred.

I love the fact that you provided the transcript, which provided the audience options to choose their best method of learning. I love both listening and reading; however, audio and videos do require more time to go through the whole thing.

What Russell Beebe shared has been my thought for several years as well. I am also in a transition from an employee to the other side of the quadrant: an entrepreneur or a business person etc. I also agree with Russell on the morning rituals. My morning rituals are Drink Water, Meditation & Pray, Gratitude, Journal, Intention and Breakfast. It looks easy; yet doing it consistently every-day is not as easy. It is about breaking old habits, snoozing addiction, time management and a strong why to build new habits.

lol at the third eyes part and glasses. Yes, I have fourth eyes too =] can take them off if needed.

Appreciated for a great post Fred.

Regards,

Tam.

Thats awesome Tam, regarding your morning ritual. I’m not going to lie, that has been one of the hardest things for me. I always want to get up and start hustling from the get go, and that is not always a good idea.  You’re also correct when it comes to consistency being the key element. Thank you for being a part of the Freddy “O” Show! 

Thanks for having Russell Beebe on your show.  He did certainly give us some good ideas.  I have to agree, that when you are starting into business online, it’s very helpful to have a coach.  When I started my business, I picked one of the top people whose knowledge I respected to be my coach, and she agreed.  It’s been immensely helpful.

I don’t think I want to try the cold shower thing.  68 degrees might not be so bad, but not sure how I’d figure out that the temp was 68 degrees.  Perhaps I could just go outside during one of our heavy Alaska rainstorms and achieve the same purpose.  

Russell is certainly providing a needed service, and I commend you for giving us information on how to hook up with him.

Thanks Fran! Russell was a great interview and also becoming a good friend. As far as the cold Alaskan rain, I have a gut feeling that would be plenty cold 😁
