    • A Bachelor Contestant Shares His Personal Story and InsightsMichael A. discusses his experiences on The Bachelor, his finance journey, and the upcoming FOMC meeting potentially leading to another interest rate hike.

      This episode of Trading Secrets features an in-depth interview with Michael A., a contestant from The Bachelor franchise. Michael shares his personal story, including his experiences before, during, and after the show, as well as insights into his finance, personal life, and professional career.

Overall, this episode offers a multidimensional look at Michael's life and the economic landscape.

    • Using personal experiences for goodRecognize the interconnectedness of personal and professional lives and use opportunities to create positive change.

      Personal and professional lives are interconnected, and using one's experiences and platforms can lead to making a difference in the world. Michael, a Bachelor Nation favorite, shares his journey from losing his wife to founding a non-profit organization to help families battling cancer. Before his reality TV stint, Michael was an entrepreneur, starting a distribution company with his parents that supplies safety clothing and creates easy-to-use online ecommerce stores for businesses. The industry was antiquated, with a lot of paperwork involved in ordering logoed apparel. Michael and his family created an online platform to simplify the process, ensuring workers in various industries comply with safety standards. Michael's experiences on Bachelor Nation gave him a larger platform to leverage for good, and he has continued to use it to make a difference. His story highlights the importance of recognizing the interconnectedness of personal and professional lives and using opportunities to create positive change.

    • Efficient Uniform Solutions for BusinessesCompany offers streamlined process for purchasing work uniforms and safety clothing, ensuring compliance and handling sourcing, procurement, logoing, and warehousing. Founder's resilience and focus on efficiency led to success.

      The company provides a solution for businesses to easily purchase work uniforms and safety clothing while ensuring compliance with safety guidelines. They handle various aspects of the process, including sourcing, procurement, logoing, and warehousing. The business started small and faced challenges, but is now profitable and employs a small team. The founder shared a personal story about the importance of staying calm and collected during difficult times, especially as a caregiver. Despite the challenges, the company's focus on efficiency and the right team has helped it succeed.

    • Stay adaptable and view challenges as opportunities for growthLife's challenges help us grow and understand ourselves better, making every experience valuable in the story of our lives

      Life doesn't follow a linear path with predetermined rewards, and it's essential to stay adaptable and respond to challenges as they come. Perspective is crucial, and it's important not to discount the significance of our own struggles, no matter how minor they may seem compared to others. Instead, we should view difficulties as opportunities for growth and learning. Life's ups and downs, including the painful ones, make us feel alive and connected to ourselves. Embracing our emotions, even the difficult ones, helps us understand ourselves better and move forward. Ultimately, we're all writing the story of our lives, and every experience, good or bad, contributes to the narrative.

    • Finding Creativity in Difficult TimesEven during personal struggles and sadness, creativity can flourish and lead to unexpected opportunities for growth and transformation.

      Creativity often flourishes during difficult times in life. This was the case for the interviewee, who experienced a surge in ideas and new perspectives when dealing with personal struggles and sadness. A significant turning point came when he was approached to join a reality TV show, "The Bachelor," following the passing of his wife. Initially hesitant, he eventually agreed, leading to a dramatic shift in his life, as he gained widespread attention and support from the public. Despite the initial fear and uncertainty, he ultimately embraced the change and was grateful for the opportunity. This experience highlights the potential for growth and transformation during challenging periods, even when it seems impossible to see the positive side.

    • Weighing the Pros and Cons of Being the BachelorBeing the Bachelor comes with personal and professional risks, and individuals must consider the long-term consequences before accepting the opportunity.

      The experience of being on "The Bachelor" comes with a heavy burden, both personally and professionally. The individual's identity and reputation can be altered significantly, and the weight of public scrutiny can be overwhelming. Michael, a former contestant, shared his personal dilemma when he was approached to be the Bachelor after Katie Thurston's season. He declined the offer due to concerns about the potential damage to his personal life and career. Michael weighed the pros and cons, considering the examples of past bachelors who faced public backlash. He ultimately decided that the potential risks outweighed the potential benefits. Michael's decision highlights the complexities of being in the public eye and the importance of considering the long-term consequences of such opportunities.

    • Personal values and relationships matterDespite financial struggles, the speaker chose to prioritize their personal values and relationships over a professional opportunity, and their business continued to thrive.

      Personal values and relationships can outweigh professional opportunities. The speaker shared their experience of turning down the offer to be the lead on a reality TV show due to the potential negative impact it could have on their personal life and relationships. They felt it would be a burden and could potentially harden them, which they didn't want. After making the decision, they returned to work and continued growing their business, which they had always been good at managing despite financial struggles in the early years. A controversy arose regarding their distribution company and price gouging during the pandemic, but the speaker clarified that the comparison of prices in the article was misleading due to the concept of supply and demand. Overall, the speaker prioritized their personal values and relationships over a professional opportunity and continued to focus on their business.

    • Company stepped in to provide PPE during pandemicCompany drop-shipped essential PPE, charged hospitals competitive prices, and made a profit while ensuring supplies reached those in need

      During the pandemic, a company named Money Mafia didn't intend to get into the PPE business but stepped in when primary suppliers failed to deliver. They drop-shipped products directly to hospitals and first responders, never hoarding supplies. The article accusing them of hoarding and price gouging lacked sufficient information. Hospitals, with aggressive procurement teams, ensured prices were competitive. Drop shipping involves finding manufacturers and charging hospitals, while the manufacturer sends the product directly. At the time, shipping rates and international freight were unpredictable, so these costs were incorporated into pricing. While the company made a profit, they were providing essential supplies to those in need.

    • Lessons from a struggling PPE entrepreneurDespite financial struggles, staying involved in PPE market driven by desire to help and potential line extension. However, would not consider re-entry due to high competition, labor-intensive processes, and potential dangers of price gouging. Emphasizes importance of transparency, accountability, and understanding complex situations.

      Even with strong industry connections and the opportunity to extend a business during the pandemic, the PPE market was not profitable for this individual due to high competition and labor-intensive processes. Despite barely breaking even, the decision to stay involved was driven by a desire to help and the potential for a line extension. However, with the potential return of COVID-29 and lessons learned about the importance of a diverse supplier network and the dangers of price gouging, this individual would not consider entering the PPE market again. The experience highlighted the need for transparency, accountability, and a focus on serving the true purpose of relief programs like the PPP. It also underscored the importance of seeking to understand complex situations rather than rushing to judgment.

    • Deciding whether to confront issues directly or remain silentConsider the potential consequences of both actions and make a decision based on what feels right for us in that moment.

      Life presents us with challenging situations where we must decide whether to confront issues directly or remain silent. While silence and apathy can be a form of self-preservation, there comes a time when standing up for ourselves is a necessary response. This was a dilemma the speaker faced when deciding whether to appear on Bachelor in Paradise after being passed over for the lead role. The decision not to go ultimately proved to be the right one for him at that time, but the experience left him with a longing for the excitement and stimulation of being part of the Bachelor franchise. When faced with similar dilemmas, it's essential to consider the potential consequences of both actions and make a decision based on what feels right for us in that moment. Life is full of choices, and sometimes the hardest part is deciding which path to take.

    • Considering the financial implications of reality TV showsReality TV shows can bring unexpected financial gains, but it's crucial to weigh potential income loss and long-term opportunities. Life insurance is essential for protecting loved ones' financial security.

      Participating in reality TV shows like "The Bachelor" or "Bachelor in Paradise" can bring unexpected financial benefits, but it's essential to consider the potential loss of income during the show's airing and the long-term opportunities that come after. Additionally, having life insurance, especially when raising a family, is a crucial financial responsibility. The interviewee shared how going on the show helped him grow his influencer career and income, but he also faced unexpected challenges, such as being away from his son during filming and the lack of life insurance when his partner passed away. These experiences underscored the importance of careful financial planning and the potential rewards of reality TV appearances.

    • The Power of Saving and InvestingSaving and investing can lead to financial freedom and security. Prioritize saving and investing for future wealth and experiences.

      Saving money and investing it wisely can lead to financial freedom and security. The power of compounding interest can help individuals build substantial wealth over time. It's essential to prioritize saving and investing, even if it means sacrificing immediate gratification. Additionally, experiences and struggles in life, including financial hardships, can shape our character and lead to personal growth. Money can provide freedom to leave jobs or pursue passions, but it's important to ensure compatibility and communication in relationships. Life is unpredictable, and challenges, including personal and professional setbacks, are inevitable. However, with resilience and a positive attitude, we can learn from these experiences and continue moving forward.

    • Transforming Challenges into OpportunitiesBelieve in yourself, take chances, and don't let fear hold you back from turning setbacks into opportunities for personal growth and meaningful contributions.

      When facing setbacks in various areas of life, it's essential to take a moment for self-reflection and growth. Change can be unsettling, but it often leads to the most significant learning experiences and personal development. Michael's story is a testament to this, as he's turned past challenges into opportunities for progress. When encountering setbacks, believe in yourself, take chances, and don't let fear hold you back. The cost of regret is far greater than the cost of failure. In the context of work, consider the example of hand-foot syndrome (HFS) in cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Approximately 356,000 patients annually experience moderate to severe HFS, which can lead to reduced or discontinued chemotherapy treatment. However, studies suggest a correlation between HFS and better chemotherapy outcomes. Michael, with his background in pharmacology, recognized this issue and is now dedicating his life to developing a topical ointment to help alleviate HFS symptoms, proving that even the most challenging experiences can be transformed into meaningful contributions.

    • Overcoming personal struggles to make a discoveryDetermination and perseverance can lead to groundbreaking discoveries despite personal struggles and seemingly insurmountable challenges.

      Determination and perseverance can lead to groundbreaking discoveries, even in the face of personal struggles and seemingly insurmountable challenges. The speaker, who lost her sister to a rare disease while caring for her newborn, went to great lengths to create a lab in her basement and develop a potential solution. Despite setbacks and obstacles, she continued to improve the formula and eventually received help from a larger company, leading to the creation of a team and a patent. The journey was long and costly, but the drive to make a difference and potentially help others ultimately paid off.

    • Securing Intellectual Property for a New InventionFiling multiple patents, including continuation patents, is essential to protect a new invention. A successful patent can lead to significant financial gains, especially for products addressing common and expensive health issues.

      When inventing and patenting a new product, it's crucial to file multiple patents, including a continuation patent, to secure your intellectual property. This strategy allows you to add to your patent as research and development progresses, ensuring that your invention remains protected. Once approved, a patent can lead to significant financial gains, especially if the product addresses a common and expensive health issue, like Hand Foot Syndrome. In this case, the inventor is working on a topical ointment or mask, which has shown promising results in treating HFS in over 50 people. They are currently in discussions with Stanford University for a clinical trial and considering both the IND and cosmetic routes for approval. If successful, the product could potentially save insurance companies $190 million annually and generate sales up to $36 million. As a single parent, the inventor remains dedicated to bringing this solution to market, seeing it as a calling and an opportunity to make a positive impact on people's lives.

    • Embrace the struggles and make a positive impactSingle parents face challenges, but listening to kids and embracing struggles can lead to important insights and positive impact

      Single parents working full time face immense challenges, but it's essential to make the most of every moment with their children. Listening to them, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant, can lead to important insights and investments in their future. Phil Ax's quote, "it's wrong to expect a reward for your struggle. The reward is the act of struggle itself, not what you win," can be applied to both parenting and trading. Instead of just pointing out the problems, take action and make a difference. Creators don't criticize but find the good and apply it to their own creations. Overall, the struggles in life are the rewards, and it's essential to embrace them and make a positive impact.

    175. Micah Lussier: From making $130k in tech to reality TV star. BTS of Love is Blind & Perfect Match, landing brand deals, and finding her core audience revealed!

    175.  Micah Lussier: From making $130k in tech to reality TV star. BTS of Love is Blind & Perfect Match, landing brand deals, and finding her core audience revealed!
    This week, Jason is joined by Love is Blind Season 4 and Perfect Match’s Micah Lussier! 

    Although Micah’s time on the show did not end in marriage, she most certainly got the full experience of the experiment, having split from her partner Paul on their wedding day. After her time on the show, Micah has leveraged her newly generated platform into various brand partnership opportunities.

    Micah gives insight to the two sides of her life in reality TV and previously working in tech, how the Love is Blind reunion was, what she thinks makes a season thrive or flop, a teaser about her time on Perfect Match, how she would describe her brand, how success can be defined in the tech space, and how she ended up on Love is Blind. Micah also reveals the behind the scenes of the timeline for Love is Blind, the departure process for her job in tech, how they talk about money on the show, and what she enjoys about going on reality shows. What other reality shows would she consider? When did she tell her job that she was on a hit reality TV show? 

    Micah reveals all that and so much more in another episode you can’t afford to miss!
