266: Developing Long-lasting Relationships with Brandon Fong

Today's guests: Brandon Fong


Brandon Fong is a husband to his high school sweetheart, Leah, and is on a mission to create a more deeply connected world. While growing up on the government-provided “free lunch program” at school, Brandon realized that his most valuable resource wasn’t money… it was his relationships. This is why, at his core, Brandon is a connector — of people, ideas, and resources. Before age 26, Brandon leveraged his skill of connection to become a published author, run the marketing for an online education company with 250,000+ students, travel to 23 countries with his wife, get featured on TV, and launch his podcast, 7-Figure Millennials, to a top 2% global ranking in less than a year. Every week, Brandon interviews elite performers with eclectic backgrounds to discover how he and his audience can prioritize their happiness, health, and relationships while making their entrepreneurial dreams a reality. Brandon is on his own path to build his first 7+ figure business while staying in alignment with the 7FM values and sharing what he learns along the way.


On this episode:


Amber is joined by entrepreneur and host of the 7 Figure Millennials podcast, Brandon Fong for a discussion on financial motivation, podcasting, and the entrepreneurial spirit.

  • 326: Striving for Balance in Life while Developing your Business with Bill Mueller

    54:04
    Today's Guest: Bill MuellerBill is the consummate serial entrepreneur and visionary. Bill has been at the forefront of several industries to include the resume bank, jobsite and career fair industries. Early in his career, while the owner of a chain of some of highest volume resume services in the nation, Bill sold employers access to a resume bank via modem hosted on his computer at home. This was an idea ahead of its time, as the internet wasn’t available and many HR departments didn’t even have access to a modem, which required Bill to not only sell the service but to install the modems. Once the internet became common place most employment websites adopted the concept of selling employers access to resume databases. Bill later opened Texas Job Fairs prior to taking his company national and renaming it to American Career Fairs while simultaneously starting one of the first jobsites, formerly referred to as job-boards! Episode Quotes:"Until you really get to know someone, it's not possible to know how you can help them." -Bill Mueller"People have this illusion that people completely unlike them started networking groups. They are entrepreneurs just like us." -Amber Fuhriman"I've always considered networking events as opportunities for people to help each other." -Bill Mueller"If you close yourself off to experiences you will miss out on opportunities." -Amber FuhrimanFind Amber on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/amberraefuhrimanBill Mueller:https://www.linkedin.com/in/startanetworkhttps://www.facebook.com/bill.mueller.14019https://www.alignable.com/roanoke-tx/start-a-networkIf you are interested in connecting with Amber, send an email to amber@amberfuhriman.com.Connect with other incredible people looking to break out of the corporate mindset by joining the Facebook Success Center: http://bit.ly/2MuWn53Checkout Amber's Speaker Reel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPj5OBvjrr0Schedule a connection call with Amber: https://calendly.com/amberfuhriman/connection-call?month=2021-05If you are interested in connecting with Amber, send an email to amber@amberfuhriman.com.

  • 322: Finances & Life's Struggles with Jamie Lima

    40:26
    Today's Guest: Jamie LimaI grew up in a family that always seemed to have money challenges.That led me to a career in finance as I wanted to learn and understand how to better support myself and my family.I began my career in 2006 with Morgan Stanley, and in 2011 joined Fidelity Investments. I was responsible for overseeing $1 billion in assets for 450 families and businesses.Today, I primarily focus on mid-career professionals, working to maximize their wealth, so they can do what they love with zero financial stress.I also am a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® and founded Allegiant Divorce Solutions in 2023 to help others better prepare for, navigate, and recover financially from divorce.I promised myself early on that I would do whatever was required to ensure that my clients never felt the same struggles related to money that I did. I really love helping clients make important financial decisions and making the puzzle pieces ‘fit’ for them.Outside of work my wife, Dawn, and I spend a lot of time in our Jeep driving the country backroads here in inland San Diego, working around our farm (we currently have sheep, goats, chickens, pigs, ducks, and rabbits!) and trying to keep up with our 5 (yes, 5!) kids.Episode Quotes:"Marriage, from a financial perspective... is basically two CEOs merging two businesses. Discussing the financial aspect of what might happen during a divorce shouldn't be a weird topic." -Jamie Lima"The touchier the subject the more uncomfortable the conversations around it can be... and the more we'll avoid them." -Amber Fuhriman"Take a pause. It's a smart move to make sure everything is in place before you get married.
