Why he chose to join a pricey mastermind before masterminds were 'trendy.' "I intuitively knew that I would stagnate if I didn't surround myself with people that were smarter than me. I am a big fan of watching and learning, and I absorb things like a sponge…I wanted to feel like an insider. Peel back the layers of the onion. And you've got to pay to play". Nitin Chhoda How to identify "Unicorn Developers." "The right developer in Software is like a Unicorn. Not only because of the way they code but because of the way they think. One unicorn is better than having five average developers. They are four moves ahead". Nitin Chhoda  Where to look online for a great developer, and the use of pre-qualifying projects in his hiring approach (Please note, oDesk is now Upwork). Why he prefers Java applications but allows the developer to lead the way. "If you adopt a less common language, you're more likely to succeed because there's a higher barrier to entry." Nitin Chhoda      • Why he doesn't hire Project Managers. "I think that the owner who drives the vision should work with the developer who amplifies the vision. A project manager is like a third wheel that's needed when you get to a certain scale". Nitin Chhoda Nitin's advice for someone considering a Software project. The difference between a copycat idea and something worth developing. "At the end of the day, this comes down to how many users you have and how fast you can scale."Nitin Chhoda Chhoda's Shares His Biggest Mistakes So Far! "The biggest lesson is when you work with a lawyer, and you will… it sucks, but you must work with lawyers who are aggressive for you. Not a nice guy". Nitin Chhoda. Plus, Listen For 3 Questions A Multi-Billionaire Taught Him To Ask. How can you impact the maximum amount of people positively? How can you imagine a better future? Imagination is more important than anything else. How can you create unlimited wealth and abundance for your employees? "This was really profound for me because I realized I shouldn't look at money as a number or a game, I should look at how much value I can create…I need to do game-changing things, and then the money will follow".

This week on the show Nitin Chhoda joins me to talk about why you should never settle for less than what you are capable of. Nitin is a Indian-American immigrant who came to America and was able to become a Physical Therapist and health professional.  A great example of  the 'American Dream', he arrived in the US with no money, in a post 9-11 world. In the past, Nitin worked as a waiter in restaurants and waited to eat after guests left, since he couldn't afford his own meal. He has slept in his car since he couldn’t afford to pay the rent. He understands what it means to struggle. From those positions he has launched several successful business including coaching other PTs to start their own practices and a line of health and skincare products he has branded Total Activation. Nitin shares stories of the challenges he has faced since coming to the United States as well as some of the failures he encountered along his entrepreneurial journey.  He is a true testament of what we are all capable of achieving.  In addition to all of his business endeavors, he also hosts the Ignition Time Podcast and is the author of the book "Total Activation," a dynamic new approach to weight loss and personal wellness. It is a system modeled in three stages of change: Identity, Compare, Integrate (ICI) which has 5 components: Emotional, Physical, Social, Spiritual and Intellectual (ERSSI).
