Wanting to leave behind a legacy for his family is really what set him out on a journey to build a strong personal brand. Listen in to hear how Jeff is successfully building a brand that will give future generations a better chance at success.

Show Notes

Jeff Lopes is today’s guest and he is a man with amazing experience and success that he has built for himself over the years.

From a young age, Jeff has had that entrepreneurial drive. So much in fact, that Jeff has never worked for anyone else in his entire life (at least not for another business).

One of the biggest things Jeff mentions about building a business right in the beginning of the podcast that really stuck with me:

Grow and develop your business so you can “fire yourself” from it.

I have never heard it put quite like that, but it is so true. Our goal should be to grow a business to the point where we are no longer needed for it to run.



Key Points Discussed in This Episode


Jeff is a man full of knowledge and experience and having him on the show was such an honor. After listening to this episode, I know you’ll walk away with something that can help you.

Throughout the episode we get into:

  1. How building a personal brand can help build your legacy
  2. The importance of networking and building connections with more people
  3. Tips for using Instagram to build relatinships and deeper connections with more people

With the success that Jeff has had through the many different businesses he has started like the ones mentioned in this episode, Kimurawear and True Blue Homes, we would all be fools not to implement some of the things mentioned in this episode.

Jeff has obviously unlocked one of the biggest keys to success and has proved it time and time again. And thankfully, Jeff was kind enough to share these tips with us today.

So start implementing. Start booking calls with random strangers. Start building deeper connections with people and grow your business and brand.

I Want to Know…

I hope you enjoyed this episode of the Nine-Five Podcast. Thank you so much for listening!
