What’s Your Excuse w/ Max Ivey - Reunion about internet marketing!

April 27, 2017

The blind blogger Max Ivey, blind podcaster Michael Babcock, and I, Frederic Bye, are chatting about internet marketing and email lists! 

Look, there is nothing more exciting than being an online entrepreneur...

...but it comes with its challenges. 

The three of us chat about how we run our businesses and their upcoming webinar April 30th! 

I, for one, will be there and I am super-excited to participate! 

What if I told you that you can use Facebook to increase your number of subscribers and only pay when someone actually takes action?

And learn about the book that completely changed the way I run my business. 

It's incredible. 

With purpose, passion, and love.

The Frederic Byé Show - Monday Edition

April 24, 2017

Leonard Perlmutter wrote the book The Heart and Science of Yoga. 

He will be my guest later this week. 

So today, I share thoughts on what I have learned from speaking with him. I talk wellness of mind. 

The level of spirituality we hold with ourselves is one way in which we establish some wellness of mind. 

Spirituality, on any level, is a way to cleanse the mind and refresh the soul. 

Yoga and meditation are not only about the mind, though. They are a state of our whole being. They are a state of mind, body, and soul.

They provide you with the opportunity to reflect on the inside, to relax, to regroup...

Enjoy this brief talk about one of my (and yours) favorite subject.

Have you ever heard of mirror work? 

When you mix it with affirmations, your spirit changes. As though a fire is kindled within, and then you begin to feel like a warrior again. 

Affirmations are very powerful tools that can be key in bringing about change in your life, whether it is in the form of personal change or bringing new situations.

Self-affirmations are healing, optimistic messages that you give to yourself to counter your negative messages. Affirmations resemble visualization with mental images but words are used instead

Listen as I share my experience with mirror work, affirmations, Louise Hay and Cheryl Richardson...

7 Steps to Achieving Healthy Self-Esteem

April 10, 2017

Do you ever see someone who is perpetually happy and wish you could be like them? 

In my personal experience, I struggled with self-esteem for the longest time.
I was socially awkward. I had a hard time making new friends. 
Most of the times, I felt like I was not "enough". These darn negative voices in my head were louder than the positive ones. 
I began blaming other people for the state of my life: my mother, my absent father, my friends...
One day I decided that I had enough. I took matters in my own hands.  
I read books. I wrote. I did affirmations. I meditated. I trained my mind to love myself. 
I am here to tell you that you CAN achieve a healthy self-esteem…
...but it takes time and effort. 
In my latest podcast, I suggest 7 steps to getting you started right away!
I posted this short episode to help you on your way to a better self-esteem. 
There is no benefit in going through life unhappy. You are missing out. 
Listen to the episode and tell me what you think. 

You CAN achieve a healthy self-esteem…it takes time and effort.

Here are 7 steps to getting you started on your way!

Joe Pardo on What’s Your Excuse w/Max Ivey

April 6, 2017

Joe Pardo is a special guy with a peculiar story. I'll let him introduce himself: 

Society starts with you is more than a motto, it is a way of life. To change society you must first change yourself.


Helping others to achieve their dreams has always been my goal in life. When I was younger I dreamed of becoming a child psychologist in order to help others deal with the strain of divorce. At the age of six I began working with computers which helped hone my problem solving skills. My third childhood dream was becoming a DJ which taught me an endless set of skills and really helped me break out of my shell.

In early-2014 I left my family’s $100 million business in order to pursue my goal of helping others achieve their dreams. Following in my family's footsteps I became a fourth generation business owner. Founding the Dreamer's Podcast in order to help others pursue their dreams in business has been an amazing experience.

Two Hundred and Eighty Episodes of the Dreamers Podcast, two books and countless memories later I have finally realized my dream of helping other business owners. These past three years have been filled with amazing interactions with visionaries of all backgrounds.

Along the way, I have consulted with business owners from around the world on how to better utilize their resources, both technological and human.

The Secrets of Meditation

March 31, 2017

The modern world comes with an incredible range of possibilities.

It also comes with challenges and, let’s not forget, with a wide selection of responsibilities.

Are we ready to face them all, to deal with them all? The fact is that this modern world is overwhelming and therefore, we tend to get tired, weak and stressed.

But is there a solution to all these effects of the modern world?

Undoubtedly, meditation is the one tool that can reduce best all these aspects of a busy, dynamic and active lifestyle.

A lifestyle that implies, besides all the successes and satisfactions, an additional package of worries and, of course, stress.

Want to dig deeper into meditation? God to fredericbye.com/zensecrets.

March 30, 2017

Simone Bennet is on a long vacation, trying to heal from the trauma she suffered at the hands of a serial-killer kidnapper. After looking death in the face, she tries to develop a new outlook on life—live in the moment! Carl, the charming lawyer, is back, asking once more for Simone’s help, this time in analyzing Lara’s journals, which were discovered by her siblings after her death. In her own words, Lara divulges all her secrets, and reveals a dramatic world of betrayal, passion, and the most unusual sexual behaviors, exposing the beautiful architect’s troubled life. As Simone tries to deal with the contents of Lara's haunting diaries, one of her patients gets himself into a bit of legal trouble, forcing Simone to return early from her vacation. Although she's happy to be back on her home turf, she finds herself surrounded by a whole new set of problems. A killer is out there, and this time, he seems to be after the people Simone cares about most. Suddenly, people around her are dying, a stalker/admirer keeps showing up at all the wrong times, and Simone’s dear friend Edward has a new girlfriend—forcing Simone to analyze her feelings for him and her attraction to Carl.

March 24, 2017

Aaaaa, the meaning of life. Gosh, is this a popular question, or what? In my opinion, it is THE question of today’s era. Who isn’t intrigued by this question? Who hasn’t struggled to figure out his or her true purpose?

Could you sum it up in 100 words? What if someone offered you $10,000 for your best description?

What if there are no meanings to life, except those we choose? As new-age gurus assert, “It’s all made up, anyway!” Or, as religious doctrines proclaim, “Follow God’s will for you. This is the true meaning of life.”

This is the topic of today's show, hopefully it will help you on your path. Also, I suggest you check out Wayne Dyer's videos on this subject at fredericbye.com/dyer. Pay attention at the 4:30 mins mark, as he talks about the transition he made from a guaranteed position as a professor to following what he believed was his life's purpose. 

Amy Starr Allan on What’s Your Excuse w/Max Ivey!

March 23, 2017

Amy Starr Allen is the founder of the Next Level Mastermind (a community and ‘think tank’ for online entrepreneurs) and the author of several books and courses including MLM for MOM, Conscious Marketing, Next Level YouTube Marketing and The Next Level Blogging Blueprint.

After struggling for years as an online entrepreneur and not feeling in alignment with many of the sales tactics others use to make an income in a home-based business, Amy decided it was time to pioneer a path for people to be able to market authentically and serve their audiences.

As a single mother who could barely afford to buy clothing for her children a few short years ago, Amy has since become a 6-figure earner in the industry and has helped hundreds of people learn how to tap into their unique gifts and share their messages with the world, all while earning an income doing what they love most.

By teaching people how to ‘Cash in on Their Passions’, Amy has been invited to share the spotlight with industry giants such as blogging expert Neil Patel, and has been invited to speak to local businesses about how to get their unique message out into the marketplace.

Amy’s unique understanding of entrepreneurs and how powerful it can be when they tap into their own voice and their own passions, is reinventing the way online entrepreneurs market their businesses.

Jamie Lerner on The Frederic Bye Show!

March 22, 2017

Jamie Lerner's book will change your life for the better. But first, I will let Jamie introduce herself to you: 

I was born with a knowing; a true sense of who I came forth to become. Fortunately I grew up in a family where there was tremendous encouragement to explore every curiosity and embark on each incredible journey of self-discovery. I threw myself into the mix of life with a sense of wild abandonment. There was so much to experience and I was bound and determined to explore it all. I was ahead of my time, always choosing the road less traveled as I allowed my inner being to guide me every step of the way. The contrast that I have experienced throughout my lifetime has been stunning. Each and every wonderful moment has brought me closer to the clarity of the life that I have so joyfully created and live out each and every day.

I am on what I often call my "third life." I have co-created a beautiful family with my successful and dynamic husband. I received my MSW from Loyola University, and developed a wonderful thriving private psychotherapy practice. I have traveled the world exploring all types of spiritual healing modalities. I am a passionate amateur equestrian rider on the AA horse show circuit. I have an insatiable appetite for pleasure, beauty and joy, and often refer to myself as a true pleasure junkie.

I am now so appreciative to be able to offer this integrative approach to well-being, as well as a lovely new texting option called The Quickie, providing you with an easy way of checking back in with yourself at a moment’s notice, allowing you to re-frame your current thoughts and feelings, so that you may quickly be on your merry way.

Did you know that harmony is a secret to happiness? It is!

When we harmonize our words with our behaviors, we discover heightened levels of happiness, peace and well-being.

In this podcast, I take up the topic of marrying our public professions and beliefs with private and sometimes unconscious behaviors. We begin with several meanings for the word harmony and learn the concept as described by Buddha.

Next, we’ll cover the difference between stage personalities and behind-the-curtain, sub-personalities that bring us into disharmony and unrest.

Discover how triggers exposing our hypocrisy can actually help us connect with inherent contradictions. Find out how to convert “aha!” moments into empowering new choices for a happier and more peaceful life.

Then, listen in as Janelle Alex, a traveling entrepreneur and writing coach, shares some of the simple pleasures that make her happy from the inside out, too.

How to Find Your Life’s Purpose

March 17, 2017

What’s the purpose of life and how to I get there? Those are two of the most asked questions on this planet. Have you ever asked yourself something similar to that?

You have something very unique in your life to accomplish, which is very great. Of course, the question that comes after that is, ‘What is it then?’ But that is just about as far as most people will ever go. You may ask yourself this question, think about for a few minutes, come up with no answers, and then just let it go. 

I will give my view and few tools you can use to find your purpose as fast as possible.

NEALE DONALD WALSCH on The Frederic Bye Show!

March 15, 2017
In the middle of the night on August 2, 2016, Neale Donald Walsch found himself drawn into a new and totally unexpected dialogue with God in which he suddenly faced two questions:
  • Is the human race being offered help by Highly Evolved Beings from another dimension?
  • Is there a key role that humans are being invited to play in advancing their own evolution by joining in a mutual mission to assist the planet during the critical times ahead? 
He was told that the answer to both questions is yes.
And thus began the unfolding of the completely new and unexpected addition to Walsh's world-changing Conversations with God. That Trilogy ignited a new level of understanding, awakening and spiritual evolution for millions around the globe. Walsch never anticipated there would be more to his seminal work, until that August night in 2016. 
Now encompassed in Conversations with God, Book 4: Awaken the Species (Rainbow Ridge, March 27, 2017), readers will discover 16 specific examples of how Highly Evolved Beings respond to life differently than humans do-and how adopting even a few of those behaviors could change the course of world history for the better forever.
Coming at a time when humanity is facing especially challenging times and an uncertain future, Conversations with Go, Book 4: Awaken the Species shows us that we can raise our consciousness to a new level of creation and action that provides individual and collective hope for mankind and the planet.
In Conversations with God, Book 4: Awaken the Species Walsh brings forth these 16 contrasts between how we live and how an awakened Highly Evolved Being would act. And then he further goes on to cite the 7 Tools of Integration.
Walsh presents:
  • How every decision and action must be infused with the question "Why?"-and why this is so transformative
  • Why sharing yourself deeply with others from a place of authenticity is emancipating for both parties
  • The way in which we can choose a state of being to change the course of our lives
  • The one Magic Inquiry that can guide you to far greater fulfillment in life, which further contributes to planetary evolution.  
A striking invitation to every reader sets the stage for the extraordinary explorations that follow. Picking up where Book 3 in the Conversations with God trilogy series left off, the revelations about Highly Evolved Beings and about how ordinary humans can answer the call to help awaken the species on Earth, will breathtakingly expand your view of both your personal and your collective future.

Bridges are spanning structures that provide passage over waterways, railroads or other obstacles. And when we think of bridges, architectural wonders like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Golden Gate or the Sydney Harbor Bridge come to mind.

In this podcast, however, we talk about the idea of serving as a human bridge and consider the ways in which doing so can change our lives and the lives of others, too. Learn about the first time I became an unwitting bridge and how the experience changed at least one of my perspectives.

In a world divided by ideologies and innumerable identifiers, this podcast will help you see your powerful potential as a bridge builder to a more peaceful and happy world.

For all those who relate to Gandhi’s quote that says, “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” there will be inspiration and more for you here.

March 3, 2017

In today's show we chat email marketing! 

It's funny how life is. I have been bored lately...I do love podcasting and the online world (for the most part), but I have to admit I have been doing it on autopilote for a while. I needed a change, something to shake the foundation of what I am doing. And boom! I stumbled upon The Circle of Profit book by Anik Singal. Since Saturday, I have been obsessed with the new things I am learning and implementing in my online business. I usually sleep at around 11PM, but yesterday I went to bed at 2AM, and woke up around 8:30 AM. I spent the entire afternoon at the coffee shop working on building "sales funnels"among other things.

Anyway, my point is, if you are in the online world and you want step by step instructions on building an online business, Anik's book will give you the 411. It also includes priceless, free webinars to educate you. Gotta try it, folks. If you are really serious. For the first time, someone debunked the online marketing world for me. I have a little more confidence in what I am doing as Anik puts it so clearly and simply. He is a great teacher. No wonder why he is on Rich Dad Radio Show this week: a program I have been listening to religiously for the last 3 years and a half.

Dave Steele on What’s Your Excuse w/ Max Ivey!

February 23, 2017

His lyrics can make you cry, take you by surprise, and at the same time, make you dry your eyes with the same rhyme...

I'll let him introduce himself. 

Hi my name is Dave Steele I am severely sight impaired (legally blind) due to RP. I have lost the majority of my vision in the last year and my way of fighting back is to write poems and music to raise awareness to the fears and misconceptions of losing vision. I find music and poems an easy way to get through to people. Please search for my page StandByMeRP 

https://www.facebook.com/StandByMeRP and here's one I wrote recently

Being blind can be so scary,
living days with eyes wide shut.
So we must change minds,
seek out to find,
the one ones who've given up.
There are those of us who live in fear as to what the future holds,
who spend their days lock themselves away
and it's time their stories told.
Depression can be a symptom
as we grieve for vision gone,
need love of friends and family
but some of us have none.
It's those we must stand up for
to the world we'll shout out loud,
let's fight for each others confidence
we are blind and we are proud.
So if your eyes are fading don't let your spirit slip,
just remember you're amazing
let my words repair the rip.

Jill Lublin on The Frederic Byé Show

February 15, 2017

The Cream of the Crop! Jill Lublin is on The Frederic Bye Show to talk her recently released book: Profit from Kindness! When kindness becomes your primary goal, everything changes: how you look at life, what you get from it, and how others interact with and relate to you.

The Profit of Kindness will help you master the art of building trusting, long-lasting relationships through open, nonadversarial interchanges that result in mutually beneficial outcomes. A basic adjustment in attitude and approach can substantially improve virtually every facet of your life. Each chapter provides specific examples for improving skills such as communication, building integrity, team work, influencing others, and more.

In order to connect with new clients or future business partners and transform your potential into success, you need to establish trust and build strong relationships. The key is to focus more on giving and working with others rather than simply on “winning.” Because doing so is guaranteed to help you actually win.

The Profit of Kindness is a practical guide that teaches you how to connect with others using the global asset known as kindness.

You will learn:

*Kindness does not mean weakness.
*Kindness can help you stay competitive, anticipate pitfalls, and stay one step ahead of your rivals.
*Success, achieved through kindness, can indeed be yours.

The Frederic Byé Show - Jeff Rasley

February 8, 2017

Jeff Rasley is back on The Frederic Byé Show! Livin'on the edge...baby! 

MONSTERS OF THE MIDWAY 1969; Sex, Drugs, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Viet Nam, Civil Rights, and Football (2d Edition)  is historical fiction, a comedy, and a romance set at the University of Chicago (so it must be fiction). The narrative is about the struggle of the star of UChicago’s football team to cope with the cultural revolution on campus, a 2-year losing streak, and a girlfriend who hates football.

Jack's football coach, philosophy professor, and radical-feminist-girlfriend, Alice, each ask for a commitment he is hesitant to make. A farm boy from Indiana and precocious scholar-athlete, Jack tries to resolve the universal conflict between independence/personal freedom and commitment/community. (What is Love?)  The cast of characters includes a stoner buddy, air-head BFF, gay football player, mill-worker-Renaissance-scholar, suicidal Moose, Mothers of Invention, Communists, racists, and Muhammad Ali. History and historical photos are sprinkled throughout the book.

The original edition of the book was an eBook, which has been rewritten and expanded. The new edition is now available in paperback, eBook, and audio athttps://www.amazon.com/Monsters-Midway-1969-Rights-Football/dp/1540856216/ and all other book-sales outlets.

School. It is becoming one of the most controversial subjects today. Kids are rebelling. They are bored. The traditional system tells us to get good grades so you can get a good, high-paying job. However, is this really what kids want today? Are they willing to give up their creative urges for a paycheck?  

I share an article from the Huffington Post written by a 14-year-old student who talks about this fascinating subject.

q?_encoding=UTF8&ASIN=150112353X&Format=A book of liberation and ecstasy, The E-Word lucidly explains how the ego is created, how it thinks, and how its limited mind-set can be expanded—not inflated—into a joyous transpersonal perspective that eradicates feelings of isolation, fear, and insecurity in your life.

Through stories, practices, and a masterful detangling of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, the Matrix, and quantum physics, The E-Word strips the ego bare and liberates the soul in highly entertaining, relatable ways, revealing how even self-improvement techniques can chase away the very fulfillment and wisdom we seek. Montana further reveals how the ego co-opts spirituality, dangling enlightenment in front of us as a prize.

Stuffed with electrifying insights and transformative meditations and exercises, The E-Word is the ultimate how-to guide for discovering the “real you” within.
