Smart Hustle Agency & Publishing Launches Search for Entrepreneurs & Professionals to Participate in Business-Athlete Challenge 

Published

on

Smart Hustle Agency & Publishing begins the search for current, former, and forever Business-Athletes to participate in a new Challenge that will benefit student-athletes in all sports.  The Business Athlete 30-Day Challenge starts on May 17, 2021.  

 

Lisa C. Williams, Chief #Momentum Officer (CMO) of  Smart Hustle Agency & Publishing, confirmed they have officially launched the search for business athletes to participate in the challenge. The 30-Day Business Athlete Challenge is for CEOs, business owners, entrepreneurs, and any former, current, or forever athletes.  Business-athletes are being challenged to purchase a Social Impact package for their business and a portion of the revenue will allow the publishing company to provide an important book about leadership and racial injustice to athletes.  

The upcoming book, #REALTalkRacism – Blow the Whistle: You Have the Power & Influence to Affect Change, Top Athletes who Rose Up Against Racism Share Their Leadership Advice, is for athletes in all sports.   

CEO of Vayner sports Gary Vaynerchuk recently said, “History is watching. Let’s suffocate hate.”  

Professional athletes from every sport rose up against racism by leveraging their leadership which had an immeasurable impact on a global scale. The books that will be given to student-athletes will inspire them that, they too, can use their platform and influence for good.  

“The business athletes that participate in this challenge will join me in a full-court press on racism and I am committed to putting resources and training in the hands of young athletes so they will be empowered to affect change as well,” book publisher Williams said.  

Williams was inspired to create this corporate social responsibility challenge after the professional athletes from the top sports teams in the US stood up and went on strike on August 26, 2020, in response to the killing of Breonna Taylor and the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Explaining her motivation, Williams said, “The athletes leveraged their power and it made me realize that young athletes can and need to do the same.”  

Williams went on to share, “The NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who had offered little support of Mr. Kaepernick after the quarterback began protesting, made a full reversal in August, offering a public apology to him and saying, ‘I wish we had listened earlier, Kap, to what you were kneeling about and what you were trying to bring attention to.’ Colin’s leadership and hard stance paid off!”   

This is a timely initiative, as conversations are going to arise about social injustice, activism, and racism.    

The publisher’s goal is to give 10,000 books to student-athletes in Minnesota, Milwaukee and Louisville. The book is due to go on pre-sale in August 2021. Once the book is published, 100% of the royalties from the retail sales of the book will be donated by the publisher to a social justice-focused non-profit that they are finalizing now.

About the Business Athlete Challenge  

The Business Athlete Challenge is a 4-week challenge beginning May 17, 2021, through June 17, 2021.  We are asking weekend warriors, former athletes at any level, and those forever athletes who are business owners to support young athletes by purchasing a Social Impact package for your business. We are also looking for partners to get the word out about the challenge. 

About the #REALTalkRacism Beyond an Athlete Book Edition    

The Beyond an Athlete Edition book is part of a new book series called #REALTalkRacism, Heal Our Land which is our version of “Chicken Soup for the Soul”. The title of the book is, Blow the Whistle: You Have the Power & Influence to Affect Change, Top Athletes who Rose Up Against Racism Share Their Leadership Advice.   

The book aims to inspire, equip and empower young athletes that they too can stand up against racism just as the hundreds of athletes did in 2020 after the deaths of George Floyd and Jacob Blake. The book will feature top athletes from various sports.  The publisher’s goal is to gift as many copies as possible to high school athletes around the country. 100% of the retail royalties of the books will be donated to a non-profit organization that supports black athletes once the book is published. The publishing date slated is to be August 26, 2021.  This date is the historical day when professional athletes took a stand after being fed up with the multiple killings and shooting of unarmed black people – the sit-out after Jacob Blake was shot.

Ben Trygstad, Business Insurance Advisor with Trailstone Insurance Group Interviewed on Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast

Ben Trygstad, Business Insurance Advisor with Trailstone Insurance Group Interviewed on Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast

Published on January 18, 2022

Ben Trygstad discusses his approach to bringing his business customers options for their insurance. Insurance is an essential part of protecting their employees and livelihood.

Trailstone Insurance Group is an independent insurance agent that represents multiple insurance companies. They are not locked into just one insurance company, which allows them to find the best options for coverage and the best pricing available. There is no charge to use their service; the insurance carriers pay them.   

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network

https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-ben-trygstad-business-insurance-advisor-with-trailstone-insurance-group/

Trygstad commented, ” I want to take the heart of a teacher and will always guide you to make the best decisions to protect the business you have spent so many years building!”

Business owners strive to make decisions that are right for their business & employees. This includes decisions about business insurance. They know they need excellent coverage; they don’t, however, have time to become an expert in business insurance. That’s where Trailstone Insurance Group can help with a business owner’s insurance policy.

A Business Owners Policy (BOP) combines property, liability, and business interruption coverage for small to medium-sized businesses. This packaged coverage is generally less expensive than when purchasing coverage separately. With a BOP, they have the ability to customize the policy to meet their individual business needs.

Dave Ramsey has endorsed Trailstone Insurance Group. Trygstad commented, “It took us years to pass Dave’s vetting process. We had to prove to Dave’s team that we have the “Heart of a Teacher” in our selling approach with our clients. This means we put your needs first before ours or the insurance carriers. Insurance agencies cannot purchase Dave’s endorsement, and it must be earned. Also, if our customers are not happy with our service, we will lose “The Dave Ramsey Trusted” endorsement. To make sure we are continually improving, Dave’s team does monthly training with the leadership here at Trailstone Insurance and asks for feedback directly from our customers.”

About Ben Trygstad

California Attorney Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz Reveals Her Philosophy and Core Values for Standing Up for the Underdog on Influencers Radio

California Attorney Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz Reveals Her Philosophy and Core Values for Standing Up for the Underdog on Influencers Radio

Published on January 18, 2022


Award-winning attorney Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz was the featured guest on Influencers Radio with Jack Mize.

On a recent episode of Influencers Radio with Jack Mize, award-winning, Los Angeles-based attorney Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz discussed the philosophy and core values behind her compassionate approach to representing the underdog in the areas of family law, immigration, and litigation defense.

Legal problems can be one of the toughest and most confusing times in a person’s life. Whether someone is in the position of defending themselves as the accused or standing up for themselves when they’ve been wronged, the experience can be overwhelming with possible life-changing outcomes.

Cheryl Deptowicz-Diaz is a zealous advocate for the underdog, dedicated to giving voice and the ability to fight hard but fair for what her clients deserve. She prioritizes communication, hard work, and respect for each client so that they always know their options, risks, and plans of action.

During the interview, Cheryl shared the four core values that she uses as the foundation for her law practice, saying, “I spent a lot of time really figuring out who I am as a person and therefore as an attorney, and I was told that I should have core values so that people can really know who I am and what I stand for. And I’m proud to say that I came up with four, and they’re on our website.  I believe in Equality, Partnership with Justice, Peace, and Self Criticism. And for me, these are not just passive items, but really active items, meaning that we have to participate in all of these things. So, in terms of Equality, I believe all people deserve to be recognized and treated as equal. But for us to achieve that equality, we have to see eye to eye fully, completely, and honestly.  And for us to see eye to eye, we have to look at each other. That means we have to spend time with each other. We have to occupy the same space and get that opportunity to hear from one another. In terms of Partnership with Justice, I really believe in my core in the concept that attorneys are officers of the court. And as such, we are partners in the pursuit of justice. Of our 55 founding fathers, 35 were lawyers. And so, as our society developed, the whole idea of lawyering is built-in, it’s in the very fiber of our social fabric. And yes, lawyers have a bad rap, but I personally believe that as partners of justice, we have that duty to lawyer in a noble profession. And because of that, we have the power to transform our society and move it towards true equality. Then I believe in Peace.  And for me, peace is not just something that is guaranteed, but peace is something that we have to fight for.  We have to create it. But peace is not just something that can exist in the theoretical realm, it has to exist in our hearts, in our pocketbooks, in our homes, in our communities. So we have to seek peace, but we also have to create peace and protect peace. And then finally, Self-Criticism.  How can we do all of these things if we are not constantly evaluating ourselves?  I’m a human being and I have my own story, and I have my own experience, but I constantly have to look in the mirror and ask myself to be brave, so that I can change to meet the call of the moment. Whether it’s fighting for my client’s team, or defending them against an attack from some outrageous claims. I can only do that if I’m at my best, but I’m only at my best if I’m constantly evaluating myself.”

As the daughter of Filipino immigrants and an immigrant herself, having arrived in Southern California at the age of eight, Cheryl understands what it means to be a stranger in a strange land. She is also married to a Mexican immigrant and mother to a Mexican-Filipino son. This unique perspective allows her to approach each case with an unmatched level of compassion and empathy for her clients, who are often new to the legal system or intimidated by the complexity and desperately need her help navigating their way through the process.

Listening to this episode, it’s easy to hear the passion Cheryl has for the law and to understand why she believes that lawyering is a noble profession as she continuously and consistently brings more dignity to the profession one case at a time.

Interview with Michael Wright, Insurance Agent with Trailstone Insurance Group About Bringing Customers the Best Options for Insurance

Published

on

Michael Wright discusses his approach to bringing his customers options for their insurance. Insurance is an essential part of protecting families; Asset and Liability Protection is the surest way to preserve wealth.

Trailstone Insurance Group is an independent insurance agent that represents multiple insurance companies. They are not locked into just one insurance company, which allows them to find the best options for coverage and the best pricing available. There is no charge to use their service; the insurance carriers pay them. 

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network

https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-michael-wright-insurance-agent-with-trailstone-insurance-group/

Wright commented, “With a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado Denver where I studied Risk Management and Insurance and an insurance claims handling background, I bring a unique perspective to my clients. I can guide them in making decisions to protect them from mistakes I have seen firsthand from past claims. Having this ability saves my clients money and worry, allowing me to be their Personal Trusted Advisor.”

Having access to over 25 insurance companies means when rates go up with one company, Trailstone has the ability to move their clients’ insurance to a better option…in fact, they have an entire department in their agency focused on just renewals and finding the best coverages!

Dave Ramsey has endorsed Trailstone Insurance Group. Wright commented, “It took us years to pass Dave’s vetting process. We had to prove to Dave’s team that we have the “Heart of a Teach” in our selling approach with our clients. This means we put your needs first before ours or the insurance carriers. Insurance agencies cannot purchase Dave’s endorsement, and it must be earned. Also, if our customers are not happy with our service, we will lose “The Dave Ramsey Trusted” endorsement. To make sure we are continually improving, Dave’s team does monthly training with the leadership here at Trailstone Insurance and asks for feedback directly from our customers.”

About Michael Wright

Michael likes to refer to himself as a Colorado Native, but technically he is not. He was born in the Midwest and relocated to the Denver Metro Area shortly thereafter, where he met his wife, Kelsey. Colorado has a lot to offer, and it was truly a blessing to grow up on the Front Range.

The move to Colorado led to many great life experiences. He obtained his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Colorado Denver, where he studied Risk Management and Insurance. The opportunity in the aging industry is what led him to the decision for his academic studies. From there, he found an opportunity for a Claims Handling position with a national insurance carrier here in Denver. From auto to property to business claims, he is versed in the intricacies of what can be seen as a complex process. He is passionate about helping my clients protect their assets through insurance and helping them navigate any hurdles that may arise.
