Beyond Curious ™ (formerly 7-Figure Millennials)
Curiosity alone won't change the world, but going Beyond Curious™ will. The people that shape society are the explorers — the brave adventurers willing to take a voyage into the unknown to satisfy their curiosity, fulfill their purpose, and bring their ideas to life. This is a show for those people. The people that are relentlessly curious about themselves, their impact, their potential, the people they love, and the world around them. The people who are CONSTANTLY asking themselves, “What if…”, “I wonder…”, “Why not…”, and pushing the boundaries of what is possible for themselves and for society at large. Join me (Brandon Fong) as every week I interview pioneering adventurers who have dared to go Beyond Curious™. Past guests have included NYT Bestselling authors, main stage TED speakers, 7-9 figure entrepreneurs... ... and even an occasional Olympian, NFL player, FBI hostage negotiator, hypnotist, drug dealer turned (legal) millionaire, decorated air force pilot, illusionist, Hollywood legend, Shark from Shark Tank, and even the man that invented the cell phone! I'm grateful to say that the show achieved a top 2% global ranking out of the 2.8M+ global podcasts indexed by Listen Notes in 1 year after launching.

We edited them into ONE episode Magic. What stories will you hear today? 1. How Sean Swarner climbed Mount Everest as a 2x terminal cancer survivor WITH ONE LUNG. 2. How Shannon Graham worked on a project that actually increased the GDP of an entire country. 3. How Steve Sims shut down the world-famous Galleria dell'Accademia for his clients to have a private dinner in front of Michelangelo’s David… AND THEN brought in Andrea Bochelli to serenade them while they ate their meal. Friends… If you’re curious and bold enough, anything is possible… and these 3 stories are an epic example of that.

#191: Who Are You… And Who Do You Want To Be? w/ Bob Regnerus
June 11, 2024 • 86 MIN
Two really powerful questions to deeply ponder: Question 1: Who are you? Not your name. Not what you do. Not yourself in relation to your family. Who ARE you? Question 2: Who do you want to be? Not what society told you you should do. Not what your parents wanted from you. Not what your friends think you should do. Who do you want to be? These are two paradigm shifting questions, and they are the focus of my DEEP conversation with a good friend, Bob Regnerus. 3 things to look forward to: - Why you should “fit around” instead of trying to “fit in” - Bob and I talk about how to leverage PLAY to discover your biggest strengths, and we actually dive into my love for playing roundnet (Spikeball) and how I can integrate how I naturally play more into my life - Bob composed a BEAUTIFUL song sung and played by AI that wraps up everything we talk about in the episode, and we play that at the end 🙂 If you’re someone who’s deeply curious about building a life around WHO YOU ARE, this episode is one you don’t want to miss!

#186: Designing World-Class Human Experiences & How To Live a Life of Tenacious & Idiosyncratic Curiosity w/ David Zhou
May 7, 2024 • 74 MIN
A few months ago, I was talking with my friend, Yasmina Ellins. Here’s more or less how I recall our dialogue: B: “Yas, I’m looking to connect with beyond curious, deep connection driven entrepreneurs that are passionate about building community.” Yas: “Do you know David Zhou? If not, you HAVE to meet him.” Yas introduces us… We meet, and I soon realize that David is one of few humans I’ve ever met that is just as stupidly passionate as I am about (1) curiosity and (2) designing world-class human experiences. What does that even mean? Well, here are some examples of experiences David has designed: Brunch With Strangers: Hosting a cast of people from all walks of life for a Saturday brunch... Like founders, street artists, astrophysicists, concept artists, athletes, criminal investigators, filmmakers, college drop-outs, and much more. Improv Presentations. A TED talk-like night where people present someone else’s creatively esoteric slide decks, with no context as to what’s in the deck until they’re on “stage”. People ended up having to present how to survive a cat-pocalypse to how to master the art of DM’ing using military tactics to how to be a good plant parent. Demo Day With Custom Magic The Gathering Cards: Creating an event where startup founders and investors got to know each other a la 100% customized Magic The Gathering cards with AI-Generated images of themselves and fun facts about their life experiences And as far as curiosity goes, David’s LinkedIn headline simply reads: “Tenaciously and idiosyncratically curious.” We go ALL over in this conversation… discussing how to design world class experiences that connect people, how to reach out to strangers (David has sent a cold email to a stranger every week for the past 6+ years), and more.

April 30, 2024 • 73 MIN
Today we have a first on the show… I get to introduce you to a knight! That’s right: Sir Darren Jacklin was “Knighted” by His Royal Highness of The Royal Family of Spain on Saturday, June 04, 2022 for his acknowledgment of Global Philanthropy and Entrepreneurship. As you read some of his accomplishments, there’s no question why he was considered for knighthood… Sir Darren: - Is committed to raising $100 million dollars for his global philanthropy projects - Is a world-class speaker & corporate trainer who has personally trained over 1 million people - Has rung the closing bell at Nasdaq 3 times in New York City - Has successfully summited the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro — the highest point in Africa at 19,340 feet - Is a multi-millionaire that has served for 10 years as the first Independent board of directors member of eXp World Holdings (Nasdaq: EXPI), a multi billion dollar international real estate company I could go on and on… But what was cool about spending time with Sir Darren was how open and honest he was about his mistakes and struggles on his journey. Despite all of his accomplishments, at one point, Sir Darren was homeless and selling watermelons off the side of the road just to get by. This is a can’t miss episode if you’re someone that wants to expand your mindset to think WAY bigger from a knight!

April 23, 2024 • 71 MIN
Growing up, Markus Kaulius’ family was so stressed financially, he felt too guilty to ask his mother for 25 cents to buy a hot dog at school. He lacked confidence, didn’t have a father figure in the picture, and was overall dealt a bad hand.

#183: Co-Creating A Loving Entrepreneurial Family and Building an Aligned Life With Your Genius w/ Jeff & Jake Madoff
April 16, 2024 • 74 MIN
To this day, the most downloaded episode of the podcast is episode #45 with Jeff Madoff. Jeff is an incredible human who has also had an inspiring career… some highlights include: - Starting off as a fashion designer, being chosen as one of the top 10 designers in the U.S. and having 110 employees and two factories at age 22… - Switching careers to film and video production — creating award winning commercials and documentaries for companies like Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, and Tiffany - Authoring Creative Careers: Making a Living With Your Ideas based on the class he developed and teaches at Parsons School of Design, in NYC. - Most recently, Jeff became a playwright and theater producer. His play “Personality: The Lloyd Price Musical”, is based on the life of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legend Lloyd Price Anywho… Since our recording in 2021, Jeff has become a dear friend and mentor (Leah and I saw his play when it came to Chicago!). After one of our more recent catch ups, Jeff introduced me to his son, Jake, who is ranked in the top 1% of growth marketers, having worked with 100+ brands, and manages anywhere from $5K/mo - $2M/mo in monthly ad spend. Jake and I had a great conversation, and it sparked an idea: As many of you know, I became a dad in November 2023 and I have been thinking a lot about “entrepreneurial dadding”. Being an entrepreneur is one thing… Being a present and loving dad AND an entrepreneur is a WHOLE other thing… It was clear in knowing Jeff and meeting Jake that they have a great relationship, and have BOTH built incredible careers out of what they love. And thus a question formed: What if I interviewed them together to talk about co-creating a loving entrepreneurial family… and also how to grow in your own entrepreneurial career while inspiring your kids to pursue their own passions? So, if you haven’t guessed already… they loved the idea, and THAT is what we discussed on today’s episode! If you’re someone who’s passionate about raising a loving family AND pursuing your passions, this is an episode you won’t want to miss 🙂 To learn more about Jeff and Jake, visit https://gobeyondcurious.com/podcast/jeff-jake-madoff/

#181: From Escaping The Gulf War & Spending His Childhood Summers In Mumbai Slums → Bootstrapping a $10M/yr Company By Leveraging Community… w/ Lloyed Lobo
April 2, 2024 • 67 MIN
Imagine being 8 years old and waking up to your mom telling you that you don’t have to go to school today. YAY! Now imagine that the reason you don’t have to go to school isn’t because it’s a snow day… … but because your country is at war. This is Lloyed Lobo’s story. Lloyed experienced the Gulf War as a young refugee in Kuwait, and grew up visiting the slums of Mumbai. Surprisingly, BOTH of those experiences are things that Lloyed has transformed into positive experiences. Lloyed’s experiences in the slums and in war taught him about the power of community. Eventually, Lloyd (out of instinct) found himself as an entrepreneur and eventually leveraged his community building skill sets to bootstrap a $10M company. Insane. If you’re someone who’s a sucker for a good “underdog story” and wants to learn how to build community, this is an episode for you!

Man oh man do I have another treat for you today… It’s my honor to introduce you to someone I’ve respected and followed for the last 5+ years: Brian Kurtz. Not only is Brian one of the most well respected and relationship-focused direct response marketers in the world… … but he’s also responsible for helping Boardroom Inc. sell over a billion dollars’ worth of products “$39 at a time” to millions.

In this episode, you will learn… - What transformational concept on creating impact you can learn from a five-time World Series Champion - Why Brian went to Barnes & Noble with a hand truck and bought enough books to make his 1985 Toyota Camry’s tailpipe almost drag on the ground… (and what that has to do with helping you create a bigger impact in the world) - The ONE metric that Brian believes was responsible for helping Boardroom Inc. generate $1 Billion in product sales… … and SO much more.

#169: How You Can Leverage “Core Embodiment” To Access Deep Flow States, Heal From Trauma, & Uncover What You TRULY Want In Life w/ Ajaya Sommers
January 9, 2024 • 83 MIN
If you’ve been following my work for awhile, you might have heard me share what I believe to be my purpose in life: To create a more deeply connected world by catalyzing curiosity. When I first met Ajaya Sommers, I almost immediately knew that she has a similar purpose… yet comes from a completely different set of tools and approaches than I do. Ajaya is the founder of a unique somatic discovery process called, Core Embodiment®. For the last 28 years, she has studied how to connect deeply with your body's intelligence to awaken and align with the power of your human potential. My perception is that as a society, we often prioritize thinking with our head, and discount the power of listening to your heart and what your body is telling you. In this episode, you’ll learn how to tap into a whole different level of your body’s intelligence to find greater alignment with your purpose and natural gifts.

#168: EPIC "Accidental" Episode: Here’s What Happens When You Connect A Hollywood Storytelling Legend With A World Class “Liquid Storyteller”... W/ Michael Hauge & Ryan Castelaz
January 2, 2024 • 98 MIN
What happens when you connect a Hollywood storytelling legend to a world-class "liquid storyteller"... and then sit back and listen? MAGIC. I think a new format for Beyond Curious just emerged... Context: Michael Hauge has been one of Hollywood’s top story experts since 1985. He consulted for Will Smith to help create I Am Legend... and has worked on projects starring Julia Roberts, Morgan Freeman, Alec Baldwin, Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy, Tom Cruise, and many others. Ryan Castelaz is a "liquid storyteller" and the founder of Discourse Coffee, which Growler Magazine called “the most gonzo, balls-to-the-wall, experimental coffee house.” Ryan has been featured in Milwaukee Foodie, Food & Wine, Barista Magazine... etc. I was catching up with Michael last week when he asked about someone (Ryan) in a video I showed him from the "Curiosity Quest" retreat I co-hosted with John Davie... Long story short, Ryan, Michael, and I got on a call back in October. The coolest part? When I had Michael tell an AMAZING story... ... and then had Ryan translate that story into a drink that would tell that story in liquid form. It was honestly one of the COOLEST conversations I've ever been a part of. Thinking of calling this "Brilliance Blending™" where I bring two masters of their craft into a conversation... Anyways... this episode is the byproduct of that conversation. It was too good NOT to turn into an episode! Ryan and Michael, thank you for the epic conversation! Want to go deeper with Michael and Ryan? Check out episodes #134 and #135 to listen to my conversations with Ryan. And check out episodes #36 and #37 to hear my conversations with Michael!

#141: Why 10x Is EASIER Than 2x w/ Dr. Benjamin Hardy
June 27, 2023 • 76 MIN
After doing my annual 2022 "year review" I found out that I read 51 books, recorded 63 podcast episodes, and took 26 courses. 10x Is Easier Than 2x was one of the best books I read… and has led to a massive upgrade in the way that I’m approaching life. I was incredibly grateful that Ben sent me an early release copy… and I’ve been SO excited for the book to come out for others to read it. The book is finally out now, and of course I had Ben on to talk about it. ALSO… This is the FIRST interview episode of Beyond Curious™, and that was incredibly intentional. Beyond Curious™ is absolutely my next “10x” and has required me to massively upgrade my identity and mindset. If you’ve listened to the show, you know that one of my favorite quotes is by Michelangelo when he was speaking about how he sculpted the David — “I saw the angel in the marble and I carved until I set him free”. I believe that life is about subtracting what doesn’t belong so that you can build a life around the most authentic version of yourself. That is the premise of this entire book — 10X is fundamentally about quality vs quantity. If you really want to evolve every component of your life, it requires radical simplification, and then expansion of the simplification. If you want to radically upgrade your identity and simplify your life while getting more results… this is for you.

#140b: Introducing Beyond Curious™ (Brand Reveal High-Level Version)
June 20, 2023 • 72 MIN
--Read Me To Discover Why There Are Two Versions Of #140! -- The wait is over! I’m SO excited to announce that 7-Figure Millennials is now Beyond Curious™. There’s SO much I want to share with you, so here’s the plan 👇 I created a "choose your own adventure" experience for you to learn about Beyond Curious. Here's how it works: - There are TWO episodes introducing Beyond Curious — #140a and #140b ↪ #140b is the “High Level” version where I share the story and vision behind Beyond Curious™ ↪ #140a is simultaneously the LAST episode of 7-Figure Millennials and the FIRST episode of Beyond Curious™. (For ease of navigation: 140a and 140b start to "split" content wise is at about 26:00) My goal was to make #140a the best episode I’ve ever created. It took me over 20 hours to produce… and it’s a knowledge synthesis of the thousands of hours I’ve poured into publishing 7-Figure Millennials. 140a is a 3-hour long masterclass. In the episode, I do two main things: - Answer the “7-Figure Millennials Question” I set out to explore from day 1 — How can we become financially successful and have a big impact while prioritizing our happiness, health, and relationships? - Make the leap to live out the answer I discovered In 140a, I weave insights and actual audio clips from dozens of episodes into one cohesive masterclass to conclude 7-Figure Millennials and start Beyond Curious™ with a bang.

Here’s the section from his book describing the drink: “Apologies in advance to our vegan friends, but when life gives you pork fat and apple cores, you make caramel. While that's not how the saying goes, the pork fat lends an unctuous umami flavor to this sumptuous caramel, perfectly offset by bright, juicy apple, courtesy of homemade apple powder, which will provide the cores for your caramel. Delicious hot or iced, Motorhead is metalhead magic in a mug.” Ryan is a freaking mad scientist and his drinks are INCREDIBLE. If you’re a coffee lover, buying his new book, The New Art Of Coffee, is a NON-NEGOTIABLE. So: Not only is this episode special because it’s with a dear friend… but it’s also the first ever time I recorded an episode in person!

Yes, it sounds impressive as is… But what you probably DON’T know is just how crazy the story is behind the invention. Here’s a teaser: 1. Back in the 70s, AT&T proposed a plan to be the sole provider of cellular. 2. The FCC was about to give it to them— UNLESS Motorola (who Marty worked for) could change their minds. Here’s what happened next (direct quote from Marty’s book): “To preserve the viability of Motorola—and to save the future of communications from the chokehold of a monopoly—we needed to do something truly dazzling. Something far beyond a basic land mobile demonstration. What could we possibly do to stave off AT&T’s takeover of cellular? Then it hit me. We needed to make a phone call.” In this episode, you’ll get to hear the tale from the legend himself… and how he actually ended up creating the cell phone over a period of only three months.
