My Go-To Restaurant Guide for Mexico City

My FAVORITE Foodie City...

unnamed-2.jpg

Picturing..

TACOS, CHILAQUILES, ENCHILADAS OH MY

THIS IS MY POST SAYING, GO DO BUSINESS IN MEXICO.

Find an excuse to get to know the culture, the people and the food. And do it quick. 

I have a love affair with Mexico City... (otherwise known as DF) but don't tell my man. It's just between the warm and welcoming people, the incredible museums, amazing shopping and the to-die-for food, it's a hidden gem of a city. And, because I'm in finance, with the peso devaluation vs the dollar and the American mentality of it being dangerous it's hugely undervalued IMHO.

But I'll be honest I don't mind it staying hidden so I get to explore it all for a STEAL!

Leave comments and tell me if you want more particulars and I'll hammer out a hotel/activity guide too but only if you beautiful souls want it!

I've played and worked in Latin America for almost ten years now and somehow walking the streets of Polanco, La Condesa, Roma, it always brings me home. I've included below some of my favorite spots of all time to nosh on lovely edibles while in the city. Since I'm usually there for work I included a lot of upscale places because come on guys, you've eaten so many tacos I literally just can't handle it. 

Let me just say that Chilaquiles for breakfast is a need not a want. Pair it with a concha and you can call and thank me, or better yet bring me back a Concha and I'll love you forever. 

Let me just say that Chilaquiles for breakfast is a need not a want.

Enjoy eating your way through this city.... oohhhhh you are in for a treat!

UN ABRAZO FUERTE!

Bosques

Means trees or forest in Spanish. It's the cool part of town that runs in the middle filled with, you guessed it, trees. These are two of my favorites there. You may or may not get to this part of town, if not don't stress, the next spot is the do or die.

Condesa/Roma

If I lived in Mexico City it would be this part of town, no doubt. It reminds me of the best parts of Brooklyn and Soho all wrapped into one deliciously old-world present. No high rises are allowed, the streets are lined with bars and restaurants and the people are just way too d*mn hip.  Bohemian hipster paradise, no doubt about it. 

Pendulo Library & Cafe - Listed as one of the best libraries in the world I secretly love their cafecitos and people watching.

You have a waxed moustache and talk in the theoretical? Mercado Roma is for you and your suspenders my friend.

¡Viva México!

 

Polanco

Polance is like your stylish, European influenced neighbor, who has been to Spain but loves France and can dance salsa. Well, I don't have neighbors like that but if I did I would nickname them Polanco. It's the poshest part of the city and one of my favorite parts to stroll in.

Bistró Chapultepec - $$ - $$$ - Calle Lago Mayor S/N - 1era Sec. Chapultepec. Mexican. Short seating waiting period.  Relaxed atmosphere. Great lakeview.  

Bistro Chapultepec... Ok so you'll butcher the name but the views are worth the embarrasment.

Quintonil - Another place that gets me salivating like a dog on a bone. $$$$- Newton 55 | Polanco, Mexico City 11560, Mexico. Mexican/Latin. Not your average restaurant experience.  An explosion of flavors.

Reforma

This is the main drag of the city, think of it like the artery to the heart. It's where all the commerce is, all the protests are, and leads straight to the Zocalo where the Presidential Palace is. If you are in Mexico for work, this is where I stay. Also - great running paths up and down it. 

J&G Grill - This is my home away from home in Mexico City. It's in the St. Regis so if you aren't looking for a chain this is not your jam, but I sit here and work for hours. $$$$ -Paseo de la Reforma 439 Hotel The St. Regis, Mexico City, Mexico. Top notch service.  Famous for Avocado Pizza.

Cantina La Piedra - They get a little wild here, and I like it. But in a classy way, because I'm a lady. $$-$$$ -Calle Aristoteles Esq. Masaryk 124 | Esquina Masaryk, Mexico City 11550, Mexico. Mexican Bar/Pub. Excellent service and very (ahem) lively atmosphere.

They get a little wild here, and I like it. But in a classy way, because I’m a lady.

Contramar - Did anyone say ceviche. Oh no, my mouth was full of it, so I didn't say it, I just ate it all. $$ -$$$ -Calle Durango 200, Mexico City 06700, Mexico. Mexican/Seafood. Relaxed and informal atmosphere. Nouvelle seafood cuisine.  

 

San Angel

You probably are not going to find yourself in the south of the city (unless you go to a bullfight or soccer match, but if you do this is my go to spot there. Multi-layered, feels like a modern jungle inspired open air mansion. 

SUD 777 -$$$$ -Avenida de La Luz 777, Mexico City 01900, Mexico. Mexican/International. Great atmosphere, gourmet cuisine, perfect wine pairing, fantastic sites all in one place.  

SUD777, doesn't suck huh? 

SUD777, doesn't suck huh? 

All in all my friends, my goal here is that you step outside the taco joints and taste a little more of the metropolitan Mexico. You will be surprised at what you find. 

Adelante,

Jim Rogers: Investing Legend & Original Nomad

Jim Rogers: Investing Legend & Original Nomad

A conversation with the Legendary Indiana Jones of Finance.

Best selling author, hedge fund investor, globe trotter (and a bit of my personal hero), Jim Rogers.

I believe it was Thoreau that said, “I could no more name all the books I have read and yet, all the same, they made me.” Truer words for me have never been spoken. But occasionally there comes across my hands a book that I can name and its impact reverberates through my life for years to come. One such book was by the legendary investor Jim Rogers called, “The Adventure Capitalist.” I touched its pages more than a decade ago and it shaped my life in many ways. Jim is a bit akin to the Indiana Jones of finance, he's an explorer, a pioneer and he is not afraid to go against the norm. Basically, he’s anything but your typical investor.

If the world economy gets better, commodities are a very good place to be in... even if the world economy does not improve, commodities are still a fabulous place to be.
— Jim Rogers, "The Adventure Capitalist"

You see Jim has a story, Jim was at the peak of his investing career in the 1970's. He was the co-founder of the industry leading Quantum Hedge Fund with one of the other most famous investors of our time, George Soros. They just had a record year of 127% return on their portfolio and 4200% return over 10 years. Not bad, eh? Then Jim did something that so few do. He left the lucrative high life of Wall Street behind, by choice. He set out to travel the world investing for himself personally in emerging market real estate, third world stock markets, and currencies, all from not a cushy seat in New York, but atop a yellow convertible. Jim decided to continue his emerging market investing spree and circumvented the globe astride a gleaming yellow convertible Mercedes, bedecked with tires able to traverse an African back road just as well as a Californian coastal freeway. This journey led to one of my favorite books of all time, “The Adventure Capitalist.” As if that wasn't enough he wanted to get even closer to the Earth so better to invest in it's trends, aka he traveled around the world astride a motorcycle. That was his book, “Investment Biker.”

Those who cannot adjust to change will be swept aside by it. Those who recognize change and react accordingly will benefit.
— Jim Rogers, A Gift to My Children: A Father's Lessons for Life and Investing

So you can see why I have to admit when I reached out to Jim to have him on this podcast I thought, “Well, this is a bit of a stretch, to say the least.” Then from the skyscrapers of China, where he currently resides, he responded yes. We spent an hour diving into some of the questions I’ve held close to my vest for a decade. Like how to develop contrarian ideas when the entire world disagrees, how did he get the guts to leave it all behind on Wall Street, what advice would he give to his daughters today, where is the opportunity of the future and what is a belief he holds dear that most of the world would completely disagree with him on.

 

I challenge you if your desire is to travel the world lucratively, invest yourself, or simply understand the inside of one of the most brilliant minds in finance, listen to what Jim has to say.

 

Maybe he'll change your life, just as he did mine. 

 

Un abrazo,

My Most Personal Podcast Yet: Neeta Bhushan

My Most Personal Podcast Yet: Neeta Bhushan


Almost a year ago I walked into a crowded cramped little cabin of a cruise ship for Summit at Sea, (think a young entrepreneurial invite only version of Davos and Burning Man all in one), and I stumbled upon a shining light of energy inside a tiny little body. That light was Neeta Bhushan.

Neeta is a best-selling author of Emotional Grit, a PhD in psychology and medicine, an international speaker renowned across Asia and India, has spoken at the likes of Google and Facebook, and is one of the key members of A-Fest (a grouping of global change makers with her life partner Ajit). She specializes in helping leaders develop emotional intelligence or as she calls it, “Emotional Grit,” as well as is in the midst of a new world speaking and event tour called Boundless.

 

On this podcast, Neeta and I get personal with it. You see she, like so many of us, had to go through a real trial to achieve greatness. She talks about her first marriage to an abusive spouse, to living in her car, to leaving it all behind to start afresh, to pushing past cultural norms as a self-identified “brown girl.”

We talk about how she creates a powerful relationship and success for each of them, how she travels the world while running a major business and non-profit, and the life lessons she wishes she had learned earlier. Neeta was a key trigger and drive in my life at a time that I truly needed it, I hope that you allow her to trigger you too.

Neeta was a key trigger and drive in my life at a time that I truly needed it, I hope that you allow her to trigger you too.

While it's hard to pick a favorite.. I did. Here is my small, succinct but if you sit on it, absolute favorite quote from Neeta:

Is what you’re doing really worth it?

Take a moment, put in your headphones, sit back, relax, and get ready for a ride. 

Love you animals,

How Selling Hot Dogs Led to Funding from Silicon Valley Who's Who

Sam Parr Hustle.jpg

Sam Parr, CEO of The Hustle Tells His Wild Story...

"And how butterfingers are the key to happiness…"

Real talk. I haven’t laughed this hard or wanted to steal so many one liners on the podcast before. I really shouldn’t be surprised because my guest is SamParr, CEO & Founder of TheHustle.co. Sam is just about as quirky, funny, and strangely poignant as his site and newsletter.

I mean what can you expect from a dude who went from owning a hot dog company in Nashville, with commentary such as, “if you can sell meat on the street to strangers something good is going on,” to running a site with over 200k subscribers and millions of people frequenting his website.

It all started for him with HustleCon. A conference he created after he had sold one of his startups in Silicon Valley and was looking to surround himself with the smartest of the smart by hosting an event chock full of them. Maybe stimulating his next idea or two. He figured he’d lose some money, but gain a killer network. Turns out he got both. He made $60k on HustleCon, and a few years down the road they make a heck of a lot more than that and have thousands of attendees listening to hundreds of striving weirdos (my favorite types of humans).

We get into how Sam has systematically cultivated a Zero F’s attitude, the one piece of advice he gives to all salespeople, the thing he thinks we will look back on in 20 years and be amazed by, as well as what he tells himself when he is told, "No, you can't."

Spoiler: "Is it impossible according to the laws of physics? Hmm.. then watch me."

How to Travel & Make Money?

How to Travel & Make Money?

Office chair redefined... p.s. all these clothes are thanks to PrAna. Get you some. 

Office chair redefined... p.s. all these clothes are thanks to PrAna. Get you some. 

Getting Lost to Get Found

I have a belief that if you follow your adventure while traveling, you’ll find yourself and perhaps, make money while you do it. That's why I partnered with PrAna to dig deeper into consciously consuming around this beautiful world of ours (see me sporting all their lovely threads!). You see, I’m an Adventure Capitalist at heart. What is that? It’s that roaming soul who follows their adventure to create an opportunity for themselves and others. It’s the explorer who looks at the world around them and is brimming with questions. It’s the human that when they see opportunity, they seize it. I first discovered it with Jim Rogers book of the same name.

Us adventure capitalists, we’re the wanderers, the curious, the Magellan’s who don’t travel to escape but to create. 

If you follow your adventure, you’ll find yourself and perhaps, discover a new person entirely.

We consume and create consciously, focusing on that intersection of passion, profit, and purpose. Many don’t know it yet, but we are the next generation. If you’re one of my tribe of creators, or just curious about how to become one and release that inner wild soul of yours, let me take you on a journey. 

We consume and create consciously, focusing on that intersection of passion, profit and purpose.

My story started years ago as a journalist along the US/Mexico border (you can view my video here) where I got lost to ultimately get found. It continued through finance and corporate America, but it accelerated the moment that I stopped playing by the rules. It took off the moment I focused on becoming a healthier, happier, well-traveled, more interesting human and applying those lessons to business and lifestyle design. That decision to be my crazy self despite the rules led me to understand finance, international business and how to make the globe my office. It led me to the belief that how I consume, create, and cultivate teams and relationships are the most important things I can ever focus upon. 

 

You see I used to have many days spent watching the clock, getting a case of the Monday dreads on Sunday afternoon, counting the days to Friday and otherwise having steady anxiety about my job. Because I used to think that in order to be truly successful you had better bide your time, climb along with everyone else, and maybe even had to wear matching business suits. The horror. 

 

Then one day I picked up The Four Hour Work Week, like so many other young millennials. I read it cover to cover, then I read The Hard Thing About Hard Things, then I read Man’s Search for Himself. And what happened after blending this idea of working to produce, not to log time, with how to build a company, with why it all matters, and finally with how to find yourself, led me to follow my adventure. I left my gig at Goldman Sachs at the time and started traveling for a living in the world of international investments across the Americas. I found this niche that fit me. Emerging economies that necessitated speaking Spanish, where my unique experiences created an edge, and where opportunity abounds because it is just a bit more chaotic than the U.S.

Have Passport

WILL TRAVEL... ALWAYS

So I started traveling south, almost weekly. I explored countries like Chile, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Panama, Argentina, and Paraguay to name a few. I was hooked. I realized how you can feasibly make the world your office, can adventure consciously, make money while traveling and then consume so much more thoughtfully.

 

It’s why I partner with companies like PrAna, certainly because I love their sustainable, killer active lifestyle clothing (plus they have their HQ in my second home Carlsbad!), but also because they walk my kind of talk. See it here. With motto’s like “OUR MISSION IS TO INSPIRE HEALTHY, ACTIVE, AND FREE-SPIRITED LIVING,”

Or how they write stories about… “Far off places, inspiring people, and tales that need telling,” what is not to be intrigued by.

 

So if you are with me, if a bit of wanderlust flows through your veins, the question becomes how do you create a life yourself that follows your adventure? When I realized this, my adventure truly began…

Us adventure capitalists, we’re the wanderers, the curious, the Magellan’s who don’t travel to escape, but to create. 

 

When I Found the Travel Secret:

Start with WHY it matters at all..
The secret is that exploring is as crucial to our evolution beyond primates and past the unrealized 80%, as water is to a plant, or as tequila is to my personal sanity. It's a tactile education that opens your eyes, your ears, your soul to all the possibilities inherent in the world. If you can internalize the resounding belief that your adventures further your education, you are on the path.

My suggestion: Read the book Walden. Opens your eyes to the beauty of travel. 

 

Learn the Solo Routine:

“What do you mean you are going to Patagonia by yourself?” just about everyone questioned me. I would reiterate, “I am going by myself because I want to. I'm just heading down south and seeing where it takes me. No itinerary and probably the wrong shoes.”

To which at the end of this conversation most people say, “Be safe,” and promptly switch topics. Here's the thing I'm 30, not 22. Solo international travel is utterly questionable to most people, especially considering I have a relatively high-powered job, familial obligations and then throw on that I travel almost weekly regardless. However, the truth is, if you don't go now you just may never go.

My suggestion: Plan a solo getaway. Could be nothing more lavish than a road trip. Travel courage is a muscle, you just need to flex it. 

The man who goes alone can start today, but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.
— Henry David Thoreau.

When the Inevitable Moment Comes SEIZE IT:

Seizing every opportunity in my life is one of the key reasons I've been successful, in a slightly less horrifyingly caricature of Jim Carey in the movie Yes Man, (where he says yes to everything). I do try to take on as many experiences as humanly possible. Carpe Diem may have become a cliché but it became one for a reason, we so very seldom do in fact seize the day. Instead, one day rolls into the next until we look back and exclaim where did the years go? In this way, we fantasize about the future and what we will do with it while putting off today what we will supposedly do tomorrow.

My suggestion: Start with waking up an hour before you normally do. Get work in early and learn to produce at level that is above those around you, freedom is given to those that produce.

 

Your Job Title Is Not Sit At Desk All Day Associate

I want you to ask you a question; are you paid specifically to be present at your desk from 9-to-5? Is your job title, “On Location for 8 Hours Associate”? For most, I doubt it. Your job is related to what you do not how long it takes you to do it. If my team can do in 4 hours what the other teams do in 8, all the better. The rest of the time should be theirs to grow, engage and become better humans. The problem is we need to get your bosses, or if you own your own business yourself, to understand this, and set measurable goals to get the job done while not requiring your entire life be spent doing it. So can you realize that your biggest opponent is yourself? That you haven’t tried to ask the question of, HOW can I become a nomadic capitalist? 

My suggestion: Go to your whiteboard. Or buy one if you don't have one. Write on there how could I travel more and earn money while doing it? Write up as many solutions as possible. See what happens when you start testing them. But be ready, once you take the red pill... you'll never go back.

 

Consume More Consciously

Unless you're hiding a trust fund like Trump, travel may be something that seems to be for those lucky few without real responsibilities. If you are feeling like you don't have the time, the money, the opportunity, start adding by subtracting. So that means we buy less, better things. That next graphic tee you see, skip it. Invest in conscious pieces, reduce, reuse, recycle your wardrobe and your wallet. 

My suggestion: Go to your closet. What in there can you sell online on ebay? Repeat with every room in your house. Money is literally surrounding you. Start making room in your wallet and in your space to allow in the new. AND try a spending hiatus. I like to think of this like a juice cleanse. Before you buy anything you have to wait 24 hours to pull the trigger. It's amazing how many small dimes will accumulate. 

Travel Purposefully

I travel every week. However, I cannot remember the last time I took a trip and didn't incorporate work into it. AND I love that. We aren't talking the kind of work you gouge eyes out over, we are talking playing for a living. Before I took my last two-week trip to Belize here is my list of how I maximized travel so I can do more of it (now you can too):

  1. I reached out to every single hotel to ask for discounts. I got one at every hotel.
  2. I reached out to brands/hotels to see if they would sponsor parts of it in exchange for content.
  3. I got up at 6am every day on vacation and worked the first two hours to fund it. Emails & coconuts baby.
  4. Setup meetings with 3 people I found interesting and that I could potentially collaborate with in country. Email is so powerful. 
  5. I'm a points savage. I use them everywhere and accumulate thoughtfully. 

My suggestion: Try some form of mixing my tactics above. 

So in the words of PrAnaLive fully, play long, and travel well. 

Or as I would say, Follow your adventure.. it’ll take you where you need to go.

Love you animals,

Nathan Chan: The 20 Something w/ Millions of Followers & One Ridiculous Rolodex

Nathan Chan: The 20 Something w/ Millions of Followers & One Ridiculous Rolodex

CEO Of Foundr Magazine on How He Built One Crazy Business

Just a short few years ago Nathan Chan (@foundr) was a young 20 something fixing computers in the IT department in corporate cubicle land. Then something happened that made him say never again. A moment, and a collection of moments compounded, changed everything. Now Nathan is the CEO and Founder of the aptly named Foundr online magazine, he’s amassed millions of listeners and followers, built a business with revenues above 7 figures and as you can imagine, probably now has a dude to fix his computers.

A moment, and a collection of moments compounded, changed everything.

So what’s Foundr and what’s the big deal about that? Well, as we were recording this podcast Nathan had just returned from interviewing Tony Robbins in NY. That’s kind of a like a typical Tuesday for Nathan. He’s a humble sort of bloke, so I’m sure he’s reading this and eye rolling at my pontification, however you guys tell me what you think. His first interview was with Sir Richard Branson and the cover of his magazines has been graced by names like Arianna Huffington, Gary Vaynerchuck, Marie Forleo, Daymond John, Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss just to name a few. So let’s just say he plays with some big fish.

 

Cool for Nathan, but how is that useful for you? On this podcast Nathan gave me the green light to ask him some questions he’d never been asked before. We dig into the moments he, just like all of us, was told NO. That he wasn’t enough, that he couldn’t, that it wasn’t impossible but for him it was. We talk about how he overcame those moments. He gives us his recipe for how to get in front of big names and absolutely what NOT to do when reaching out to just about anyone. Some of my favorite moments are at the very end where we get into where he would escape if convicted of a hideous crime, and his biggest mistakes.

I hope you have a nice adult beverage, snuggled up somewhere and ready to listen to our conversation ripe with questions not appropriate for the dinner table.

Cheers My Animals,

Codie

How to Get Passive Income & Become An Expert

How to Get Passive Income & Become An Expert

So Easy, Your Grandma Could Do It.

 

If there is one thing I could push every single person I meet to do it is this.. 

(Start here  Squarespace  – use code CSANCHEZ for 10% off).

 

What is the Key You Ask?

The world is a changing. Can you remember the days when cover letters, hard copy resumes, and handshakes were the only ways people grew their networks and largely their income as a byproduct? Now LinkedIn has almost evaporated resumes, business cards are turning into twitter handles, and cover letters are absolutely replaced by short, succinct emails. Can you remember the days when people had pensions and stayed at jobs for twenty years?

Now we stay at jobs on average 2-5 years MAX.

It feels uncertain this world we live in, with change as the only constant. We all want to progress, to grow our salary, to grow our career, to grow our online business and ultimately our paycheck.

Many still think that the key to passive income is the "Rich, Dad Poor, Dad" argument of buying houses or hard assets and continuing to invest in them and live off the residual income.

But, as you well know, the average housing price is not cheap my friends.  It is not easy to build a real estate empire. In fact, as James Altucher says, I'm kind of against the whole real estate game. It doesn't seem like a good idea to me to put 60-70% of my savings into one investment that actually costs me money every year, that could potentially drop in price.

There are so many easier ways to make money. 

So maybe if passive income through real estate isn't as easy as it once was, we think the key to getting bigger and better jobs or promotions is using recruiters, LinkedIn, company hopping.

Here's the problem:

  • you could get fired
  • you could get sick
  • your company could get sick aka go away
  • your industry could go away

AND THEN.. your one source of income goes to NO sources of income. How much cooler if you worked at your job because you loved it and your company? As I do. Instead of because you were scared you'd be homeless? 

NOT TO MENTION - if we are talking real wealth, millionaire status, a vast majority of millionaires have 3 or more sources of income..

  • 65% of self-made millionaires had three streams of income.
  • 45% of self-made millionaires had four streams of income.
  • 29% of self-made millionaires had five or more streams of income
Here’s the problem, the average millionare has more than 3 sources of income

That is because the wealthy know a secret, the secret is that you want to pull people, income, opportunities, clients to you by being sought after, not by pushing your resume, email, business card at others. And certainly not by singularly relying on one company or job.

THAT IS WHY:

I believe the KEY to that is becoming an expert in your field (full guide here).

To be an expert means people will come to you, give you opportunities. Opportunities to invest, to interview, to network, to speak, to be on TV, to write, to be on podcasts, to increase your network. Because being an expert these days truly means: "It's not what you know, it's who knows that you know it!"

It’s not what you know, it’s who knows that you know it?

 

Let’s get technical with a few numbers for you quant minded individuals like myself, soak in these statistics:

 

94% of recruiter’s vet candidates online before hiring

These guys all make millions with only a laptop

82% of recruiters leverage candidates online brand to recruit managers

73% of 18-34 year olds found their last client or job online

- 61% of people with a website say they got their last client or job from it

 

If we don’t embrace the inevitable shift in how we communicate, how we grow our network, and how ultimately I believe we will monetize, we are leaving a monumental opportunity untouched. But if you are any normal human, becoming a renowned expert is like a game of Chicken or the Egg, we don't know how to build a following until we have a following, and to break into the realm of expertise seems um, daunting, to say the least. 

BUT Codie, how do we do that? 

 How do we build our brand outside of our corporate spheres, or build them both simultaneously? This question is a bit akin to how does one get hired or promoted. Read more in my post here about how to market yourself online

BUT deep breath... let’s start with one small step you can do in 24 HOURS. 

HOW TO create a brand for yourself on your own platform. 

 

If you do nothing else but you go out right now I would urge you to do this.

 

 

BUILD A PERSONAL WEBSITE

 

Whether you are in college, high-school, in corporate America or a freelance consultant, these days you can create your own website for less than $20 and in less than 24 hours. Whether it only has your resume on it, your face and links to your social media, your mission of why you go to work each day, if you build it turns out some weirdos like us are also into it. I know guys that have grown hundreds of thousands of subscribers and gotten VC money off of a "millennial bro newsletter."

So worry less about exactly what your niche is and worry more about getting your name searchable on the airwaves. In fact Summit Series, the Millennial/Gen X who's who for entrepreneurs won't bring you in unless you are "Googleable," aka have an online presence. 

I promise.. it's easy... 

I will show you how I did it, and (don't tell anyone) I'm a tech moron.

I'll show you how to simply buy your domain name, throw together a pre-made beautiful website from a site like Squarespace, and update it with what you want to highlight.

Those simple steps are what led me to do all this, including red carpet interviews with Gloria Estefan, being on the Today Show, Telemundo, Forbes and Entrepreneur, and speaking at conferences in front of thousands.

You will be the 1%. In fact, I just spoke to a bunch of students at Cornell and less than 10% of them have a personal website. And they are the 1%. 

When you start putting your name out into the online universe, things will happen for you, I promise. I’ll break down how I built mine and taught innumerable others to do the same on the quick.

It’s simple, I dare you to be one of the few that does instead of the many who talk…

 

OK ARE YOU READY TO BUILD A WEBSITE? 

 

STEP 1: Pick your provider

There are tons of options, Wix, WordPress and hosting sites like HostGator, GoDaddy etc etc. I have a personal mantra which is; What if it was easy?

So that motto led me to Squarespace.. (Use code: CSANCHEZ for 10%).. Last time I check it's $5 a month. You can afford that. 

Their motto is – websites, beautifully, simply designed.

 

It was hands down the easiest, most professional and insanely beautiful websites I could find. I truthfully only ever promote brands I use, and that I love. I was approached by almost all the sites mentioned in this article to promote theirs and turned them down.

 

Why? When I went to Squarespace HQ and heard their CMO (Derek Lee) explain their aesthetic and then sat down with Amory Wooden (their Head of Marketing) I absolutely got it.

Between the modern lines, industrial feel, and jaw dropping interior of their building I could see they simply breathed life beautifully simply designed.

They walk the talk. That means your website is going to make you look wayyyyy more professional than perhaps you are. 

 

So here’s the skinny.. all in one you can have a website builder, blogging platform, hosting service, and a domain name registrar. As opposed to using multiple providers. The key for me was simplistic. With a site like WordPress you have much more flexibility but it is incredibly more complex.

I kind of think of Squarespace like an iPhone, it just works beautifully, easily and without a lot of glitches.

I think of WordPress or the other sites a bit like an Android phone, it’s more open architecture so if you are a pro or want to hire someone maybe WordPress is more for you. These two options in my humble opinion are the best ones.

I had my last businesses website on WordPress and what I loved about it was we had a developer/website manager and so he would handle the backend and it was infinitely editable. What I struggled with is that my personal website isn’t that complex to necessitate hiring someone. I wanted easy… aka Squarespace so here’s the how, now that you know the why.

 

How to create a website with Squarespace:

 

Step 1: You need a domain

(that’s just www.codiesanchez.com or whatever you want your website URL to be). Go on Squarespace website and type in the domain you would like to purchase.


 

 

When you find the domain you like, purchase it, and Congrats! It’s Yours! Was that hard?

 

Already have a domain? Let's move on to the next step.
 

 

 

 

Step 2: Selecting a template.

Squarespace has more beautiful, professionally designed templates than Kim K has red bottomed shoes in her closet. You can pick from a variety of categories depending on if you want a personal brand site, blog, photography journal, ecommerce site etc. Select the category that tickles your fancy with your type of website, and choose the template that makes you feel like a happy little clam.

 

After you find the template you like, start creating your website using Squarespace 14-day free trial (register here).

 

 

Step 3: Start filling in your website information.

 

Now that you’ve signed up. You will find yourself logged into a new site. Yup, two steps to you technically having a site.

On the left, you will see a navigation as below:

 

 

 

Step 4: Design Your Website

 

Now the fun begins. These navigation are the tools that make up the content of your website. Personally I like to jump around and play with this portion myself. There is very little you can do to screw it up, so I think the best way to learn is to start clicking and playing inside with changes but for you check-listers below is step by step detail.

REMEMBER - Just throw up your name, a photo and a link to your website if you are feeling overwhelmed. That is ALREADY A HUGE WIN.

 

Let's start by clicking at the ‘Design' button.

 

Here you can add your Logo and Title for your website.

 

After setting Logo and Title for your website, you can now set the basic information.

 

Go to your 'Home', then 'Settings', then choose 'Basic Information'

 

Here you can choose your type of website, anything from Commerce, Business, Non-Profit, to Personal.

 

Under the site type, you can enter the description for your website like the picture below.

 

 

Step 5: Creating Pages

 

Your site consists of pages in a navigation menu and additional unlinked pages. Below is how to create new pages and organize content using features like Index Pages and Folders.

 

For editing and adding Pages, select “Pages" from the Home menu. Click the “+” sign next to the Navigation and to the types of page you would like to create in your site.

 

 

My website is focused mainly on my speaking gigs and my blog, therefore, the top three page features we use are 'Page', 'Index', and 'Blog'. When creating a new content, you need to choose the 'Page Title', and the format that you want for your page.

 

Next, you need to edit your page's settings, which include Navigation Title, Description, and the URL Slug. Clicking the 'Enabled' button means you allow your page to be seen by your audiences, otherwise, you are the only person to see it.

 

 

Index Page is a page that organize content from multiple pages into a single location. Every temple's Index Page has its own design and behavior.

Adding an Index Page is like adding a page. Except that you could drag the page down to make it a part of an Index Page, or adding pages under it.

 

You can then open the 'Page Settings' and choose 'Media' to update a banner image for that page.

 

Adding as many pages as needed by clicking 'Add Page'.

 

If you don't want the Index Page to be shown on your home page, simply drag it down to the Second Navigation, where it says 'Not Linked'.

 

 

Blog is where I spend most of my time. Adding a Blog is like adding a page. A Blog is a folder where you can add as many blog posts as you would like to and thus have rolling content.

 

Click here for our guide to creating a blog post. 


 

Step 6: Upgrade Your Website

 

After designing your site, your trial page will eventually need to be upgraded.

 

You can upgrade the trial by purchasing Squarespace subscription here and add a custom domain. You can create as many sites as you want with a Squarespace account, however, each site has its own subscription. You can pay for your site every month or on a yearly cycle. You can upgrade your trial at anytime by selecting 'Settings' > 'Billing and Account' > 'Billing'. When you upgrade your site, your trial content will still be there.

 

If you want multiple people editing your site, you can send them contributor invitation by selecting 'Settings' > 'Permission' > 'Invite Contributor'

 

To manage your domain, you can select 'Settings' > 'Domain'. Your site has a default squarespace.com domain that was automatically generated from your first and last name when you signed up for a trial. If you want to change what appears before squarespace.com, select the domain and then edit the site ID.

 

You can also add a custom domain, with this, you will still see your Squarespace domain when log in your website, but your customers will only see your custom domain when you set it up as your primary one.

 

To set up a custom domain, you have three options:

 

  1. If you have an annual plan, you can register a squarespace managed domain, and the first year is free.
  2. If you don't have an annual plan, you can buy the domain through squarespace as well.
  3. If you have a domain with a third-party, you can use it as well.

 

Step 7: Connecting Your Social Accounts and Viewing Analytics

 

You can increase your online presence with your social accounts.  

To do this, Select 'Connected Accounts'

Then, click on “Connected Accounts" and add your social medias account like I did my below. The default icons will then appear in your headers or footers. With my template, it appears at the footers.

 

Another way to manage your site is through data on traffics. A new site does not have any data yet, but overtime, you can view it through 'Analytics' in your Home menu.

 

 

 

Step 8: Start Promoting this Bad Boy

 

You can promote it on your Instagram profile, here’s our guide on how to build your IG up to do just that. You can promote it on twitter as we do here. Or on Facebook as we do here.

 

Remember, your goal is to promote yourself as an expert. You want to build your kingdom so regardless of what happens at your company, in your industry, in life in general you yourself are sought after. That is where the power is.

 

Let the adventure begin…

Negotiate Like A Girl: Because You Can Get What You Want

Negotiate Like A Girl: Because You Can Get What You Want

Let's Talk About Getting Paid People 

Written by Codie Sanchez Baker                                                            Topics: The Struggle Isn't Real



Where to begin.. 

First with a mental reframe... negotiating like a girl isn't solely about what you can do for yourself. It isn't a selfish act. It isn't just for the hard core aggressive types in this world. It is a necessity to get ahead and to grow as a professional. And if you are the giving type,  I’ll simply say, when one rises we all rise. Focus on you and those you lead or influence. Help those around you increase their skills, ask your partner for help and use these below strategies to negotiate not only your pay but importantly your next promotion, your next business deal or even your next convo with the family.

Know this, if you don't ask for it, you probably will not receive it. And, hey - worst case, they say No. We eat No's for breakfast.

 

So my friend, let's earn you your seat at the table.

Blog Post 2.jpg
Focus on you and those you lead or influence

 

 

HERE’S THE HOW:

As an entrepreneur, business builder, corporate ladder climber I’ve had to get comfortable asking for what I want, otherwise it’s rarely given. The tough part is as women typically, we not only are uncomfortable asking for what we want, but we also must be cautious in how we ask. If I had a dime for every time I have been called aggressive, crazy, intense, or worse (but we’ll leave those out), I would have a heck of a lot of dimes. So every so often I think about my personal motto:

 

1)     Always ask for what you want, always.

  • You will hands down never get what you don’t ask for. This is especially true for women and minorities. There is much research that proves that we don’t negotiate enough.

 

2)    Assume you just might get it.

  • When you remove the fear from your ask, you are more thoughtful, you consider how to make it a win-win, and you are less emotional. All critical if you are going to be bellying up to the proverbial bar.

So the question becomes the how...

 

If you want a promotion, more money, a new client, how do you get it? And why do we HAVE to negotiate for what we want? 

 

FIRST WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO NEGOTIATE:

REASON ONE:

If we just look at salaries, it’s imperative. Linda Babcock did a study for her book Women Don’t Ask, she found that about 7% of women attempted to negotiate, while 57% of men did. That could help explain part of the wage gap. Now you might say ok so we don’t negotiate as much on average but what are the effects of that? Let’s talk numbers:

Example: Imagine two people were offered a $100,000 salary, and one negotiated an extra $7,000 and one didn’t. What is the cost for the one that got $100,000 vs the one who got $107,000? Many would say $7,000. Codie, I’m not an idiot. But that is wrong. Due to compounding, if nothing else changed and both the person who negotiated higher, and the one who didn’t, got the same raises and promotions throughout their career, something astounding happens. Thirty-five years later – the person who didn’t negotiate would have to work 8 years more to have as much at retirement as the one that did negotiate that initial $7,000. 

Now, the question is: $7,000 may not be worth the risk, but how about eight years of your life?

 

REASON TWO:

The average wage growth in the US over the last 5 years is around – 2-2.5%. That won’t even cover your rent increase. If you don’t ask for more you almost certainly won’t achieve the financial success you want.

Have I convinced you to don your little negotiating cap?

 

MY TOP TEN TRICKS to NEGOTIATE LIKE A GIRL:

(Aka ask for what you want... and get it). 

 

1.     Always ask

-       Nothing beats practice. Start small, negotiate with friends and family first. Then negotiate with a client, then go toe-to-toe with the boss. But with love and numbers backing you. Always.

 

2.     Don’t come in committed to outcome

-       Come with options not outcomes. Instead of saying I want X amount, consider flex work, more vacation, an assistant, a virtual assistant – get creative with your asks and make sure you earned it, and there is a mutual benefit.

 

3.     Explain why you deserve it and know what you are asking for

-       Never come and just say, “I want more money.” This rubs me the wrong way when done to me. I immediately calculate the percentage change they are asking for and say, “What are you doing to earn 35% more money?” Rarely do they have an answer and they didn’t even realize they were asking for such a big % increase. Thus, back it up with facts and numbers. Say, “I did x and y and z and my plan for the coming 6-12 months is to accomplish this and that. Given that, I think the work I am doing is worth more than I am currently making. Thus, I wanted to talk to you about a pay raise?” Then shut up. They may be telling you you’re about to get one higher than your ask.

 

4.     No emotions or needs (needy ain't cute)

-       I don’t care that you can’t afford X, or feel like you want to make Y. Make it about what you have earned, not what you want. Be proud of never accepting a cent you didn’t earn.

 

5.     Put yourself in your bosses (or counterparties) shoes

-       What are their goals and how can you align? Everyone wants more money and if you’ve ever been asked for a raise by an employee you’d know that there is only so much money to go around. How can you put yourself on the other side of the table?

 

6.     Best book on negotiation

1.     The art of war is an uncomfortable classic – it shows you the non-politically correct ways of power but knowledge is power so it is worth reading. Even if you don’t want to use these strategies (I mean they list Genghis Khan so you can imagine the strategies he used – yikes!), you will recognize when they are being used on you. Aka, you won’t get murdered in a negotiation.

 

7.     Be likeable.. Sounds simple, huh?

-       I can’t emphasis this enough, making your “opponent” like you and want to give you what you want, is worth its weight in gold. That means smile, cajole, apply to their better instincts, state the benefits to them. My go to line is this… “You can’t blame a girl for asking can ya? What kind of employee/sales person/business person would I be if I ask for the business?” BIG HUGE ENDEARING SMILE following.

 

8.     Ask for more than what you want..

Henry Kissinger the ultimate negotiator said, “Effectiveness at the conference table depends upon overstating one’s demands.” First because the universe just may give it to you, and then because there will be flexibility on the downside.

 

9.     Get them to say their position first

For example, if you are negotiating a salary or package with a new gig and the person asks you for what you make currently, you don’t need to answer. You can say, “'Well I'm flexible depending on how you structure compensation for the growth potential and the right company fit long term. Would you be willing to share the rough salary range you have in mind for this position?”

 

If they push again and ask what you make you can say, “Charles this is really not something I give out broadly… kinda like a woman never tells her age (wink wink smile), why don’t you tell me what your range is and I’ll let you know if that fits my range.”

 

Confidence is everything.

 

-       The main point is don’t just shout out the $ amount you could be too low or too high. Prep for this question and know what this position is roughly worth.

       

10.  Reluctant seller/buyer

-       Remember the one who wants it less almost always wins. So even if you want this new job/client/raise so badly you would sell out your mother, you need to pretend you don’t.

-       Let me give you an example, say you have a job offer you’re dying to take, you hate your current job and are about to quite anyways and make $0. Here honesty is not the best policy. Reframe your mindset, they must negotiate to get the best deal for their company and you must negotiate the best for you, so for now, no transparency.

 

-       You can say, “I’m really happy in my current role and growing immensely. I’m always open to the right opportunity at the right company but I’m not actively looking.” Why? Remember playing hard to get with a dude? It’s the same thing, it increases your perceived value, and makes them want you more.

BONUS TIDBIT:

After I ask for what I want, I watch the others reaction. If they give in easily, I say nothing but thank you and remember that next time I better go higher. If they flinch, look uncomfortable or get angry I wait for them to speak and then I say with a big huge smile my favorite line again, “Can’t blame a girl for asking can ya? Seems we never get what we don’t ask for?” SMILE.

Can’t blame us at all.


Happy negotiating, Love you Animals!

Lessons from My Favorite Contrarian Entrepreneur

Lessons from My Favorite Contrarian Entrepreneur

Her name is Mary & Her Motto is: Eat, Play, Crush

(You are going to like her, and her stories even more).

There are four people’s Instagram I actively follow and check, four. Mary’s is one of them. I don’t think I’ve told her that before (our little secret). Most have heard of Mary as @PaleoChef on Instagram, twitter and the web. Or you may know her as a private chef to more celebrities and athletes than I can list without being a shameless name dropper… but let’s just say if they write books, have the biggest platforms in the world, play sports, have millions of followers, are frequently on a big screen near you, she probably has cooked or coached them on Paleo. Oh and she has a Youtube Show on Mixed Makeup. NBD.

 

You might also know her because she’s a fudge packer. Say what? She came up with one of my favorite brands as a healthy traveler, PhatFudge, which is all organic, paleo goodness on the go. While I follow her for those reasons, my favorite part about Mary is her completely contrarian approach to business.

While everyone is out talking about life hacking and leveraging everything from technology to personal networks, Mary mostly turns left when others go right.

You see she has never taken a dollar of funding for her now crazily growing company. In fact, she didn’t have a credit card a month ago. Straight cash baby. While everyone is out talking about life hacking and leveraging everything from technology to personal networks, Mary mostly turns left when others go right. On this podcast, she opens up about where creativity stems from for her, how she handles moments of doubt, her transition from corporate to entrepreneur, what Paleo means to her, and everything in between.

I hope you enjoy this podcast as much as I reveled in recording it with her. Stay tuned I guarantee you'll be hearing big thangs from this lady.
