After 100 episodes, we've learned a lot. This episode features my thanks and my advice to anyone wanting to start their own show.
When we started the show on YouTube, I had just a random number of viewers. 44 MILLION views later... wow.
Since then, my Facebook fans went from around 1 million to 4.6 million. When we put the show here on iTunes, it debuted at #1 across ALL categories. Amazingly, despite the fact I don't really promote the podcast to my email list that often, it's been a fixture in the Top 10 of Self-Help for 100 weeks. I'm so happy and honored people keep finding us here and spreading the word.
As you know, I've never had a sponsor or ad on the show - I'm able to self-fund the entire endeavor because enough people buy my books and courses that I don't have to resort to that nonsense. I don't have any issues with other people having sponsors on their podcasts - it's necessary for a lot of people. I just personally don't like it and have turned down multiple 7-figure sponsorship deals so that I can keep your listening ad-free. Yes, the podcast could be "bigger" if I went with the money, but I just don't need to. I like that you can come here and hear positive messages unattached to ads. If you feel the same, please share the show!

After suffering depression and surviving a car accident at the age of 19, Brendon began asking himself important life questions: “Did I truly live today? Did I love? Did I matter?” His intention to be happy with the answers led to his breakthrough and life's work helping others “live a fully charged life.” By the age of 32, he became a #1 bestselling author and a multimillionaire as an early pioneer in the online education space. Since then, he has dedicated his life to helping others find their charge, deepen their motivation and strength, and share their true voice with the world.
Larry King named Brendon "one of the top motivation and marketing trainers in the world." SUCCESS Magazine named him as one of the Top 25 Most Influential Leaders in Personal Growth and Achievement, along with Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Joel Osteen, Wayne Dyer and more.
