Intro: Hi, this is Matt “The Do Over Guy”, Theriault and welcome to Your Do Over: Episode Three.

Narrator: During an era where countless people, businesses, and organizations are feeling the pinch, running out of time, running out of money, losing confidence, feeling as if life is unfair, praying for another chance, and unless something is done- life is going to pass them by. Life is going to pass them by. Fortunately, in the nick of time there is now a place where the ignored underestimated and unknown steps to producing results and making life work are revealed. Save your career. Save your business. Save health. Save your relationships. Save your life. Get from where you are to where you want to be, faster and with greater ease than you ever thought possible.  Say hello to “Your Do Over”.

Welcome to Your Do Over, the place where once a week you will hear learn and take action on the ignored, underestimated, and unknown steps towards producing results. This is the show where I along with my network show people dissatisfied with their current situation, how to start over, discover a better life, and get lasting results, easier, faster and smarter.  Tonight, coming at you from Downtown Los Angeles with an awesome show, I am actually very pumped up because I just in the mail from my publisher the first paperback copy of my book, Do Over, the e-book, and audio book they have been available for a while, a couple months now, but the paperback is now here. You know I wrote this book specifically to show people that a discontent and unhappy with their lives how to start over, discover a better life, and get lasting results so that they can actually enjoy life again. I know our country could use a whole lot more of that right about now. So, if you want to pick up a copy you can go to DoOverBook.Com, purchase it there, if you are new to this podcast, I suppose we are all new to this podcast, this is only our third episode, so if you have never heard of me, if you are new to me, so to speak, and you are a little cautious I can understand.  You can also, go to DoOverBook.Com and download the first couple chapters for free. You know it is funny, I just recently took a personal thought assessment on-line and perhaps I will discuss it in detail on another episode, but the results were pretty interesting. It revealed that I am really open to new ideas and concepts, but have a high level of suspicion around the source from which I receive that information. So, I assume there are others out there just like me, so I did make the first couple of chapters available for free, to give you a little bit more insight into who this Do Over Guy character is, and again you can do that at DoOverBook.Com. Okay, enough of that let’s get on with the show. Last week I introduced you to my good friend, and mentor J Massey, if you remember today he is having a field day in today’s real-estate market. My guest today however had a very different experience in the field of real-estate investing, he essentially lost everything over the last few years, you know, like so many people in our country right now, he found himself mid-life calling for a Do Over. He is also a good friend of mine and I am happy to here he is doing very well as he has resumed his passion for pursuing physical fitness and well being. He is building a new successful Cross-fit business in Lake Charles, Louisiana.  If you have never heard of Cross-fit: forging elite fitness pretty much says it all. He is a man of great integrity and compassion. I admire him for his balance of confidence and empathy. He has been a really close friend of mine for a while, and if you have known him for more than 30 seconds than, he is probably someone whom you already call friend as well, that is just the type of  great guy he is, so without anymore delay, I introduce to you Mr. John Wilson. Hey, John, thanks for being here and taking the time to share with us your do over.

John: Thank you Matt for having me.

Matt: You bet, things are going very well for you right now in the world of physical fitness, and I want to hear all about it, but can you begin with what you were doing just prior to your current endeavor, and lead me up to where you are, and how you got to where you are today?

John: Sure, sure, I was in an organization that marketed and sold real-estate investing education, and it was a great company, a great idea, great system around real-estate investing, and because I was involved in that, I also got into, and was pretty heavily involved in real-estate and real-estate development as well. So, I had taken the education and applied it in my own life, and started to do some developing, and suburban properties, and things of that nature. And, as it happened, it was the quintessential right idea, absolutely the right idea, but the wrong thought. If you remember what has happened over the last couple of years, starting back in 2007, I closed on four properties in California February of 07’ and 600 acres in Alabama in January of 07’ and I am not sure if you remember what was going on in the mortgage world at that time, but t that is when the industry started to take a huge hit and for a lot of people and a lot of property owners that was the beginning of it. So if you saw me right now, I think I learned from righting those properties down, but it was an incredible experience, and it took me back to one of my first loves which is the fitness industry, I lost literally everything that I had worked for a number of years, in that mortgage decline, debacle, whatever you would want to put a title around it for. And, it got me back into fitness. Now, the interesting thing about that was as I got back into fitness I have continually redefined everything from my definition of success, to what makes me happy on a daily basis, what I am committed to creating on a daily basis in my life and the lives of others, so it has taken me full circle to an extent from being very excited and happy about making a lot of money to being very happy and excited but not making a lot of money, but feeling a much greater sense of contribution and service, and a greater sense of satisfaction all together.

Matt: Got it, you know, you kind of mentioned the- what was going on in the mortgaged industry and I think you pretty much have to have your head in the sand in this country to not remember what was going on just a few years ago, and what had happened to our economy. But, when things are going really good, it’s easy to feel unconquerable and I remember knowing you back then and you were just such a pillar of confidence and the consummate success. When the change came, and the financial world change, what was really like the first sign that you saw, this isn’t any good, and how did you respond to that?

John: Well, interestingly enough, there was no specific event. It was a series of things that was almost like a storm coming in. Where the barometric pressure drops a little bit, and if you have arthritis your knee will start to ache a little bit, and once it get a little darker, then it gets a little bit darker, then the breezes start to blow. I mean it was a literally a series of events that I believe began with, and it wasn’t very long, if you thought about how  great timing was, it wasn’t very long after we closed on the acreage that we had down south to start developing, we were in conversation with partners that were of national caliber, I mean the real-estate venture of Prudential life insurance, with decision makers in that realm, and having conversations about doing joint ventures with them on these pieces of property that we had acquired along interstate 20 down Alabama, you know, as these companies started to see what we had planned and as there demeanor started to change because at that level, they seem to know well in advance what someone on the ground level, like they are on the 50th level of the skyscraper , or the 100th level, and I am on the street in terms of experience and financial viabilities. These are people involved in national, and multi-national and hundreds-of-billions-of-dollar-companies. They started to look back and share stories with me of large nationwide builders like KB Hall (Hall Irwin Construction) and Lenoir Homes and all these people walking away from all this hard earned money that they had put down on literally thousands of acres of property nationwide, and it had not filtered down to the little guy that was trying to do just one development here, one development there, but they were already starting to back out, and I think the general sense that I had with my partner was because of the scale of the thing that we were trying to do, that we should be able to get it done, we were very wrong. (laughs) very wrong and it was the cost of adjustment, because we found ourselves redefining and I think we went through three or four revisions of what the best and highest use of the land that we had acquired was going to be, and it was simply we were having to adjust to the market, and we didn’t know we were one-step behind, that as things adjusted we, and loans were no longer being made for residential, we were going to try a small commercial model. Well, small commercial was looking for tenants, you had to have tenants, but the national tenants that you wanted for a commercial development were pulling back, and they weren’t expanding so much. So, these Big Box stores, like Circuit City, and Best Buy, all of a sudden were not expanding like they had been, and we were fortunate in one way to be connected to the people who could have those types of conversations with us. But, on the other hand, just enough confidence and belief to think that we could have made it, you know, happen anyway.  And I think that was the beginning   of the end. And it was our response, and I believe it was the best response that we had access to. We didn’t absolutely knee jerk react, we thought about it, we planned we looked, we consulted with people, and then we responded to the changes that we felt were necessary. And, you know, once the momentum had started downward you can negative or positive momentum, this was defiantly negative momentum and we rode that baby down. (Laughs)

John: Hey, along with the rest of the country right.

Matt: Hey, so knowing what you know now. They say hindsight is 20/20 and that is somewhat of a theme of this show, is taking successful people like yourself and taking their hindsight and transforming it into their foresight. So, knowing what you know now, how would you have responded differently under the same conditions?

John: Well, that’s interesting, and a great question. In terms of how we laid out the business, found investors, the path that we took to create the developments that we wanted to create- I wouldn’t change any of that. What I would have done differently would have been bight off much smaller pieces. You know, I was lucky enough to be on the road for a while with Anthony Robins, and I really found by surrounding yourself with people watching the game, that if you are going to go down for a big game don’t go down trying to put your shoes on in the morning. You know, and we really went for it. Now, in hindsight the one thing that I would have done differently would be to start with a smaller little piece of the pie, let’s do one, do it really, really well do it right and then let’s do three. Then let’s do five. Then let’s do seven, instead of looking to see how we could do a hundred. And, the market that we were looking to develop was going to be over 100 homes in one area, then were going to have another couple hundred acres free and clear, once that was done, and as the market shifted and changed, I believe I would have had more do diligence done and not relied on people who I thought were experts, and would have consulted a number of different entities to so. We chatted with a number of people, it is not like we just talked to one person, and said okay let’s do that. I would have done even more, because what I remember seeing now were teams, not just three, or four or five, but teams of people consulting on what would be best, and how to go and make it work. I think that was kind of a long answer, but I think that pretty much exemplifies what would have been different.

Matt: You know the answer to this next question might have been laced into your response of the last one, but is there one mistake that you made that you swear you would never make again. Like a universal mistake that can translate into any business.

John: Absolutely, yes, absolutely, not following my gut.

Matt: Not following your gut?

John: Not following my gut. There was a moment when I was about to sign and close on my personal rental properties,  my personal rental properties and in that moment I had a flash of, you know what, maybe you need to back up and look at it from 5000 feet again. And, just really consider, but I was there. There was a little bit of pressure, lets-just-get-these-papers-signed, lets-just-get-it-done-get-it-done-get-it-done, and I just kind of pushed that feeling aside and did it anyway. I have to say I have not done that to myself since.

Matt: Right.

John: So anytime I have had one of those gut feelings, or one of those intuitions, God’s winks, God’s slaps, whatever you want to call it, I have absolutely listened to it, and I have to say, since then it has been spot on. I have absolutely not done certain things, and they have absolutely worked out the way I thought they would, which was (laughs) which thankfully I was not involved in.

Matt: Right, I am glad you clarified it, because I really though your answer was that you would never follow your gut again, but what you meant is that you would.

John: Oh, no the opposite. (Laughing)

Matt: Got it, because I often say follow your gut and follow it fast, and that is a great.

John: Yes, I would absolutely listen to my gut, my intuition, and I did not do that.  I listened to it, heard it, and put it aside, and it was the wrong thing to do.

Matt: Got it, glad we clarified it, I thought we were taking a left turn on this interview, I though uh-oh,

John: (laughter)

Matt: Well now that you are on your way back up, what new habits or disciplines have you had to adopt in your Do Over, so to speak?

John: Hey, one of the biggest- and it’s a quote that I love from Jim Rollins, he says, “Discipline and regrets they just wastes times, what do you want to carry around for the rest of your life?” and I have gotten discipline back in my life, discipline is no longer a punishment or a negative, it is a positive, it is something that I can dial in and participate everyday in. That’s probably one of the biggest things, being disciplined around staying on course. You know I have goals for my fitness business, I have goals for my health personally, I do something every single day towards those, towards that end.

Matt: Hey, I think that is important, it’s the small things over time that add up and produce the result.

John: Hey, what is showing up is drastic changes in small steps. You know, small bits every day over time, then all of a sudden, it is a drastic change and it was done, very simply, very easily, all that’s little accounts for so much. When I go to counsel people on losing weight we go down to how many ounces they need to lose each day, not how many pounds they need to lose overall, and sometimes it is three ounces a day. Which is a lot more manageable in a person’s mind that needs to lose fifty pounds? And, “wow, you need to lose fifty pounds?”, “No, you need to lose three ounces a day for twelve months.”

Matt: That is a great way to put it, I like that, and perhaps I could borrow that from you, as I have been trying to get back a little into shape myself. That sounds a little easier. What is going on, you are in the middle of you do over, you haven’t completely, you have a new definition of success that you touched on a little bit, but I know you are a man of big ideas, and big dreams, and big goals, what would you say is the biggest challenge in you do over right now, and what types of things are you doing to overcome it?  Or overcome them?

John: The biggest challenge right now is. Being immersed in a culture that doesn’t hold health in its highest regard. So, my biggest challenge is the education of this culture, on how they can absolutely, enhance vitality, reduce their health risk factors, increase their longevity, increase the quality of their life, and not completely lose the identity of who they are. I am living  in south Louisiana right now, and I call  it the land of rice and gravy, and you know, in the health realm, if you look at a sixty year old in South Louisiana compared to a sixty year old in Southern California that has taken care of themselves, eaten healthy, fresh foods, exercise daily, and did not immerse themselves in drinking gin and eating fried foods, and again, not everyone in South Louisiana does that, but I would say the majority. It’s amazing at the different quality of life that they experience, not to mention how differently they look. So it’s not- by no means is it just about how they look, but one of the things that we Americans spend millions and millions and millions on, men and women, are ways to fight aging and the easiest way that I have found to fight aging is take care of yourself, work out a little bit each day and eat healthy foods. You know I believe in a lot of places that people are driving in Cadillac’s and eating at McDonalds. I would rather drive and pay for a Nissan Centra and eat the best food that I can put in my body, because I am going to have my body a lot longer than I have my car.

Matt: You know when you started that I was going to say you don’t obviously live in Southern California anymore , what are some of the approaches that you are taking to overcome that, I imagine education has a lot to do with it?

John: Well, I absolutely believe that the one that educates the market dominates the market, and I don’t believe in advertising per say, I believe in exposure, and I believe in public relations. But, for my business, I don’t have a demographic because I believe everyone really wants to be healthy, live longer, and lead a better quality of life. So, I have been doing more, free workshops, free seminars, free phone calls, free speaking engagements to get out into the public, and be as visible as I can be, in beating the drum of what can be achieved through, you know, drastic changes and small steps. What can be done with minuet changes in their daily lives, to get them a lot closer to- you know some people the goal is simply reducing their blood pressure medication, not fitting into the 30,000 dollar gown for the gala this weekend. You know it can be that small for somebody and I think what a lot of people think about people losing weight, it is for vain reasons, and down hear especially it is not. We boast about having some of the best cancer doctors in the country and that is not a good thing. It’s good that we have them, but unfortunately it is because we need them. We have 65 miles of chemical refineries, and we have some of the highest cancer rates in the nation, so of course we would have some of the best oncology doctors in the country down here. Just like in west Texas they have some of the best heart specialists because they have some of the most heart attacks around. You have to look at both sides and then go its good, but I would rather have mediocre doctors because we don’t need them at all.

Matt: Right, right.

John: Kind of, kind of.

Matt: Kind of, okay great, I am glad that you are down there, and it defiantly sounds like you are making a difference, how are you using technology today in your Do Over?

John: The biggest is the communications, is being able to plug in, having a simple hub, where we can plug people in, we use a simple website and a blog, and it is designed strictly to send everyone who hears about us in any way ,shape ,or form -do it. And from there they can figure out our events, they can see our work outs, they can see the tips that we post, they can see information on nutrition, or we can link them to another website that has got a vast amount of information on it. So, I would say by far the web, the blogging- by far the neatest communication tools that have come around in awhile. Kind of on the other side of that is the revolutionary ability to send out multiple e-mails at once, instead of just spam, having your own database, I mean I think none of it is really brand new, but I never really had a reason to use it before, I mean in our marketing we were always making phone calls, we used some of it, but it wasn’t the same type of education that I want to get out there now. So, the blog, by far is one of the most fun tools that we have added.

Matt: Got it. Well, if our listeners wanted to go and check out your blog what is the domain name?

John: https://crossfitlakecharles.com/ for our gym down south. I am a cross fit coach, and it’s also connected with www.crossfit.com which has a depth of information that we hope to have one day, but you can link directly to there from our site.

Matt: Okay, I will defiantly put those into the show notes for those that definitely want to go check that out. What would you say is the service or the technology but maybe you answered this as well, but what would you say is the service or technology that is making the greatest difference for you right now?

John: Probably the auto responder program that we use for communicating with our members, that an possibly the on-line survey, we use Survey Monkey. And I really enjoy that because it allows us to get feedback, and not everybody necessarily wants to respond and answer questions in an e-mail, but if they can go and just click a button it gives us pretty immediate feedback within the course of a week, and we can adjust and adapt. Something as simple as our hours, you the times of all our classes,  different offerings that we might have for classes, days evenings, weekends, kids classes, seniors classes, women only classes that give us immediate feedback, to keep us more in touch, instead of relying on a suggestion box, or anything like that

Matt: I have heard people mention that Survey Monkey, I think I am going to have to check it out; I will put that into the show notes as well so that people can go find that. In my do over, I have that my environment and the people that I choose to surround myself with has probably had some of the biggest impact and influence on my success, than any other thing that I have really changed. What would you say is the most important character trait of the people that you surround yourself with?

John: These days it is really those with a sense of honor, someone that has the ability to honor themselves, and lives that way through their daily actions, somebody that honors their word. Things that- they do things that they say they are going to do simply because they said they were going to do it. And there is a sense of personal pride connected to it, there is a sense of honor, is the best thing I can think of, high level of integrity in character. Not necessarily, the most, the wealthiest people I have ever been around, but by far the nature of who they are as people in regards to their integrity and honesty and character is very high.   I am very, very honored and humbled to be around them.

Matt: They say without integrity nothing works right?

John: Absolutely.

Matt: So, I guess John, in the morning, in your do over, what excites you, what gets you out of bed in the morning?

John: You know, great question, that’s something that I literally experience a few times a week, if not on a daily basis.  The feedback that I get from my members, the people that have come, that have trusted me to play a huge part in their lives because for whatever reason their life, their health, their wellness, their physical stature wasn’t working for them, and the changes that I see, and the feedback that I get from them, and their thanks and their stories of what they are accomplishing now in their life, is by far the most satisfying thing that I have experienced in a long time. I have got a number of people that have lost over fifty pounds, just slightly less than 2000 that have lost 70 pounds or less, and we have a few that have lost 70 pounds or less and we have a few that have lost close to a hundred pounds, or over a hundred pounds, and their lives are completely different now. And, to be told that I have played a part, obviously they did the majority of the work they just used me as a resource as a coach, to guide them, gives me a sense of satisfaction that I have not felt in a really long time.

Matt: Seems I am doing a lot of interviews these days, and it seems that that is a very common theme, is helping people and the type of satisfaction that people get from that, and it sounds like, you know, you’re making a difference as well, and you’re feeling the same reward that is awesome. How do you divide your time, John, when you are not working?

John: You know it has been very, very important one of the reasons why I did make a move from out West to down South was my mother. She is turning 85 this year, and I am doing my best to spend as much time with her as I can for the time that we have left. And, it’s been just wonderful, if not sometimes trying, because there are issues obviously. But, you know it’s by far it is the best thing that I can do as a son, my father would be proud of me for doing it, and I also make sure that I take enough time for myself. And, sometimes that may look selfish to some people, but I really take the time to recharge to do things that I know will make a difference for me, whether it is getting a message, spending time in meditation and prayer to, you know, just going for a drive, parking out by the lake and making plans.  You know, spending some down time- when we were heavy into the business world it was working on your business not just in it. Now it is working on my life not just working in my life.

Matt: That is awesome John, that is just awesome. What is in your future right now, what is in your future that really excites you?

John: I am building a campaign called “honor your existence”, and it is very exciting for me, it is going to be connected to a number of different facets from young children to the elderly, and it literally has me snap the sheets to get out of the bed in the morning to work on it. In my immediate future I am going to be hosting the first Louisiana competition for a Cross-fit style workout, it is not through Cross-fit itself, but it is going to be involving those types of workouts, and it’s a statewide event, and we are very excited about doing that. And, that is going to be the lead off, or ramping  up point for the “honor your existence” campaigned, and we are looking for a couple of national sponsors to promote it, so that is goes out to junior high, and high schools, and a number of different places that a lot of the message will resonate. It is a lot of fun and it’s a lot of work, but it is the first thing that I’ve done in a long time that occupies my thoughts the majority of my day. Everything that I am doing is working in some way towards that end. There is also something very satisfying about that, jus the level of focus involved and the satisfaction of chipping away at those, I like to call them free lists, but, my project plans, as those things become fulfilled it just creates the most positive momentum.

Matt: Will there be more information about those two things on your Cross-fit Lake Charles website, or do you have some sort of separate hub for that?

John: There will be an honor your existence dot com website in the very near future, it is not up just yet, but I will let you know when it happens. Then there will be links there on the Cross-fit Lake Charles site.

Matt: Okay, so if people want to stay in touch with that they will be directed from there.  Okay.

John: Most defiantly

Matt: Okay, perfect. Final question John and I have really enjoyed this, you have really given us a lot of great information, and your story is very inspiring. When it is time to leave this earth John, what do you want to be remembered for?

John: Making a difference. I want to make a difference in as many lives as I can, and I’ve done everything I can with what the Good Lord has given me.

Matt: Amen, I like that. Well, John, you have certainly made a difference in my life and it sounds like you’re making an impact on the South, the same way you made an impact here in Southern California, and it was an absolute pleasure to have you here. If in the future if we check back in with you, would you mind coming back and sharing with us your latest developments?

John: I would be honored, any time you need me howler and I am there, I am there.

Matt: Thank you very much, you have an awesome day.

John: Thanks Matt, thank you for having me.

Matt: I am assuming it is obvious as to why he is such a good friend of mine, he has just such a great big heart, he has got a great head on his shoulders, and he has so much commitment and determination. And, just loves helping people. Awesome guy, I just can’t wait for John to come back and come back and give us updates on his latest endeavors. He did say one thing today, that I wanted to turn into our lesson, he mentioned something, though it caused a little confusion for me there at first, I wasn’t sure where he was going with this, but once we got all the way through it, it made perfect sense, and it is something that I profess all the time, it’s trusting your gut. Trust your gut, and trust it fast. You know we all have what I call an integrity meter built within.  I mean we all have this innate ability to asses and judge the difference between right and wrong. And, if it doesn’t make sense to us logically, if our brain isn’t really deciphering what is right, what is wrong, our gut tells us. Our gut always lets us know. We have that internal feeling, kind of that pit that you get in the stomach on Sunday night if you didn’t do your homework. You just know the difference between right and wrong. So, the do over tip for this week is trust your gut and trust it fast. That is actually you assignment for this week, and what I want you to look back is, if there is anything amiss in your life right now. Like if there is anything, maybe it is something at work, and it just doesn’t feel right, sit back and analyze what that might be, and how you can make it right. How you can make that feeling go away. If there is something in a relationship, maybe with a family member, or a loved one, or your spouse, or a boyfriend or girl friend, if there is something wrong there that just doesn’t feel right. Your gut is telling you something, you have got something there to fix. Okay, so this week, “Trust your gut, and trust it fast.” Because, I will tell you when your gut feels good, essentially when your conscience is clean and clear, life really unfolds magically, and it is really, really awesome, and I don’t want you to be robbed of that. So, this week, “trust your gut, and trust it fast.” So, that is it for this episode, coming up next week I have a twenty year network marketing veteran who is has earned millions of dollars in the industry. He has found himself however last year looking for a Do Over, and boy I will tell you he has found one. He has discovered a nifty little invention, a revolutionary product in driver safety, and is about to take it to the home shopping network. So, if you have ever wondered how to take a product to the lucrative world of infomercials, or if you simply just want to hear an inspiring story of rise and fall and rise again from an amazing business mind, you won’t want to miss it.
