Episode 138: Joel Salomon – Unlocking Financial Freedom: The Power of Mindset, Process and Belief

Listen on:


Hey everyone, it's Matt Levenhagen! In this special episode of “The Builders,” I sit down with an incredible guest, Joel Salomon, who shares his remarkable journey from starting to pursue his dream job in money management in 1992 after finding a roadmap to follow to eventually launching his own hedge fund by 2012. But the didn't end up being all smooth sailing; just as he thought he had it all figured out, his initial investors pulled out, throwing a curveball his way. Learn how ‘act as if' and manifestation played a role.

I was truly inspired by how he took this setback as a chance for personal growth. In December 2015, he listened to a speaker who was dishing out bad financial advice to his audience. That led him to a pivotal moment of clarity, realizing his ultimate goal and purpose: to help others achieve financial freedom.

We also dive deep into the world of self-publishing. My guest has penned three impactful books, one of which became a bestseller in its first week! He shares invaluable insights for anyone looking to publish their work. We wrap up the episode by exploring one of the most potent rules from his best-selling book—Belief.

So, grab your favorite cup of joe, and let's jump right into this inspiring tale!
