I had a powerful spiritual awakening in 2018 from which I was inspired to create my meme page @new_earth_knowledge which has grown to 60k followers. As my nest egg, that helped propel me to some recognition as a modern spiritual leader for the "New Earth" sub-niche. I soon started thinking energetically, emotionally, almost dimensionally about every aspect of life. My perception shifted from linear to liminal. I began doing life coaching off the heels of my account which led me to a renewed passion for working with people. I had what I call a secondary financial awakening a couple years later when I realized what a prison the 9-5 drag was and that I wanted to design my freedom-based lifestyle. So I ended up binging on all things financial literacy for the next year. A year ago I invested in a done-for-you Amazon store as I think the Amazon ecosystem is a more reliable economy than the regular global economy. I am also passionately pursuing multifamily real estate in addition to building my podcast to a global reach. I'm also passionate about brain optimization, human potential, travel, reading, fitness, and conscious living.

I’m joined by Trent Stonehouse, founder of VersedLook and Remote CEOs Academy.
Trent’s focus is empowering entrepreneurs to leverage delegation and systems for growth. Born deaf, Trent faced significant challenges from an early age. However, he didn’t let that setback define him. Instead, it fueled his determination to succeed. At the age of five, he regained my hearing, but the early years of his life had already taught him the value of resilience, grit, and perseverance. At 18, Trent began his entrepreneurial journey, carrying with him the resilience he developed in his early years. This journey culminated in the establishment of VersedLook, a 7-figure digital marketing agency. With a dedicated team of 20+ remote offshore employees, VersedLook achieved remarkable success, generating over $50M for clients in 2022 alone.
In our session, Trent and I discuss the shifting outsourced economy, and what it means for businesses into the future. Enjoy!
