It was my pleasure today to sit down with one of my entrepreneurial heroes, Giovanni Marsico! Giovanni is the founder of the Archangel Summit and the Archangel community, Archangel Academy. Through his work, it is his mission to be able to empower entrepreneurs who are visionaries and have a deep desire to change the world. Through his programming, masterminds, and frankly, his attitude and leadership, Giovanni is shifting an entire generation of entrepreneurs and giving them the tools to take their dreams and turn them into a reality.
Our conversation today was epic — just like all the conversations I have with Giovanni! And what I loved the most was that we not only talked about how to eliminate limiting beliefs, but also what we can do as entrepreneurs to dream as big as possible and hone the skills associated with that. He also took us through some of the practical tools that he uses in his own life to take his dreams and enable them to become a reality.

BADASS FUEL — Fuel for Badass Women
Scientifically Supported Ingredients | Support, Not Replacement | Non-GMO
Two years ago, someone asked me what supplements I take to maintain my health, energy, and edge — and they were surprised that I only took four things consistently. For myself and my patients, there are four basics that support — at a foundational level — nearly every system in our bodies. In my quest for the highest quality ingredients and the easiest system for consistently incorporating supplementation to my routine, I formulated and manufactured my own line of foundational supplements. Trusted for myself and my patients, and under the guidance of your own healthcare provider, I’m excited to invite you to check out our foundational product line: Badass Basics. Learn more or order the products yourself by visiting BadassFuel.com!
CALL TO ACTION
Dream BIG! Giovanni recommends scheduling in ‘dream time,’ building a support team around you (who are really good at executing on your dreams), as well as scheduling in time for self-care. On top of that, another big piece of the puzzle is taking time to journal out ‘sh*tty’ ideas. Because when you practice doing idea generation you will get better at idea generation. Treat it as a skill! This is key in order to be able to effectively execute on your dreams or vision. Next, be sure to follow-up with us on The Entrepology Podcast Facebook page — because when you’re accountable, you’re helpable!
