Focus on the process.
In this episode, Steve, Mary, Richard, and Parham discuss:
The benefits to opening businesses in more rural areas.
The process of investing in real estate and investing in property.
How the number of stores affect your choices and expanding decisions.
The drive that comes from growing up as a poor immigrant.
Opening a business and the financing it requires.
Success is partially luck, being in the right place at the right time to seize opportunity.
Changes happen quickly and sometimes aren’t planned when it comes to scaling your business.
A background with trauma often deeply motivates someone to work harder for a better future.
Fear of shame and personal failure can collapse a business.
“Always assume 15%-20% of the stuff that’s happening is not exactly going the way you wish it would be going.” — Parham Parastaran
About Parham Parastaran:
Parham Parastaran is an Iranian-American entrepreneur and author with a passion for discussing mental health issues in the business community.
After fleeing Iran as a child during the midst of the Iranian revolution, Parham became the epitome of the American Dream. He built multi-million-dollar business Car-X Tire & Auto, a franchise of tire and auto repair shops that quickly grew from a single store in Champaign, Illinois to 16 locations.
Although he enjoyed success as an entrepreneur, he had a secret: He suffered from severe depression and addiction. A rock-bottom moment led to signing himself up for psychoanalysis, starting a journey that opened up the darkest doors within himself and found him revisiting a childhood of trauma. Over 15 years after that first psychoanalysis session, he chronicles his powerful story in new memoir,Perfect Pain.
Shifting to a focus on mental health advocacy, Parastaran stepped away as a business owner and successfully sold Car-X Tire & Autoin 2017 to Monro Muffler Brake, a New York-based publicly traded auto company that operates in 25 states and owns over 1,000 locations, adding over $10 million in revenue to Monro’s business.
Beyond his passion for advocacy and entrepreneurship, Parham is heavily involved in his community through philanthropic efforts. While owning Car-X, he hosted the Car-X Crazy K, a charity 5K race held in his home city of Champaign, Illinois which raised over $300,000 for over 30 charities throughout its tenure. Parastaran’s penchant for charity won the former Champaign Central High School graduate the C-U Schools Foundation’s Local Business Community Impact Award in 2016.
He graduated from the University of Illinois, and later attained an MBA through the university, where he often returns to give talks to current business students. Parham is married to his wife, Jennifer, and they have three daughters. They live in Champaign, Illinois.

Introducing Beyond 8 Figures
Recent Commentssolsher on $11M Exit- Viki Winterton, Expert Insights PublishingMary Ann Bella on $11M Exit- Viki Winterton, Expert Insights Publishing Podcast ReviewsHappy New ListenerNovember 16, 2018 by Rips Mom from United StatesJust started following Steve and am learning so much already. This is great stuff!Listen to this podcast even if you haven't reached 6-figures!October 29, 2018 by The Kim Sutton from United StatesAlright, I admit that I didn't listen to all the hype and subscribe to Beyond 8 Figures because... well, I haven't even hit 6-figures in my business yet. But holey crap. Every episode hits me like a bag of bricks with huge "ahas"! Listening to Melissa Krivachek right now and LOVE that she mentions the guard dog (assistant) that protects her time. BAM! Keep going, Steve, Mary and Richy! I want to be a guest some day and give credit to the nuggets you and your guests share!Learn from Successful Business PeopleSeptember 28, 2018 by ScoHarr from United StatesDiverse guests - some more engaging than others, but all have interesting stories. The hosts dive deep into the numbers, sometimes att the expense of the conversation. The best moments are more about the concepts and challenges experienced - the "how" and "why"- rather than the "how much." As there are 2 or 3 hosts interviewing, ometimes the questions seem a bit disjointed, but I expect the brand and "voice" will evolve in the future.Three Co-hosts Bring Out the Best in GuestsSeptember 27, 2018 by Steven Dent from United StatesSteve and company bring 3 different takes to the guest interview, and I think that is partiicularly important when interviewing business owners who have broken the 8 figure barrier. Lots of interesting guests and well produced.Love the 2 Comma Club!September 27, 2018 by Devi Adea from United StatesSuch a great conversation!!!! Just love this show and the hosts and awesome guests! Leveling up just by listening!

Steve is adept at getting people to open up and share and he won't give up until he gets the answers. LOVE IT!Quality Guests and allows for Messy. RealSeptember 27, 2018 by Bigoc23 from United StatesI listened to the Podcast with Naveen Jain and I like "The Teamwork" displayed by the Podcast team Steve and Richard between 5 minutes and 8 minutes. The team allowed for "Messy" and kept that in (didn't edit it out which is "Real to Life") ... feedback is take notice of State of guest and look to mirror the enjoyment and intensity of the guest even if it is going a little more "Organic" than the intended/expected result, I saw . Would have also liked a little more info prior to each podcast on itunes -3 to 4 highlights that I am going to receive from the Guest/Podcast.No fluff so far!September 27, 2018 by ryanbasham from United StatesTotally digging this podcast so far.

I think both of these aspects cannot be absent in starting a business. As she said the tools are out there and I agree, but a business without them will only be work and a job. -Cindy MasseyNext Level Business Ideas Found Here!September 26, 2018 by Jon Schumacher from United StatesBusiness podcasts are a dime a dozen. But very few bring in the caliber of guests that Steve and the crew does here at Beyond 8-Figures. I highly recommend you subscribe right now and learn from some of the best!ReviewSeptember 26, 2018 by ProcureSmartAPS from PolandHi very expiring show, to hear first hand the experiences of successful entrepreneurs snd the road they tool in developing their businesses not always laid in roses but also with downsides.

Though each person’s circumstances might be different, there are things we learn from each other.
Thanks for sharing.$11M Exit- Viki Winterton, Expert Insights PublishingSeptember 25, 2018 by Dr. Maryann from United StatesBeyond 8 Figures is a great Podcast for all entrepreneur, even the beginner. The tips Steve Osher is able to get his guests to reveal are amazing. One tip Viki Winterton gave that is important for the beginner is to be very careful to keep your company's vision front and center and not get caught up is just expanding to expand. Another tip is to remember that relationships mean everything, not only as you're beginning but throughout the years you're in business. I've listened to several Beyond 8 Figures poscasts and I've always come away with some really important points to keep in mind as I grow my business. Dr. Maryann MillerSuper InsightfulSeptember 25, 2018 by thePricingLady from United StatesInteresting discussions with people who have not just made it but who have truely excelled at scaling their businesses. Full of great insights into how entreprenuers / business owners can take steps to growing their businesses on a large scale.Great showSeptember 25, 2018 by Rouan Kruger from South AfricaLove the mindset behind scaling to 8 figures. Loved the Anik Singal hit the nail on the head when he was broke, about how he went back to basics and scales his business by serving his already existing customers better.Steve doesn’t hold backSeptember 25, 2018 by Nathan Seaward from United StatesThis is a no nonsense look at what it takes to scale your business to 8 figures. Steve is not afraid to challenge his guests and push for the real life answers to the issues facing entrepreneurs. One of my favourite shows!Every entrepreneur should subscribe to this show!September 24, 2018 by Michael Levitt @369Days.com from CanadaSteve, Mary and Richard have created a show that didn't exist prior to now. Entrepreneurs that have been so successful that they were able to exit their success story is an amazing concept of a show!
Entrepreneurs don't often think about the conclusion of their organization, but they should and this show provides epic good insights on how the extremely successful leaders did just that, in a way that carries on the legacy of what once was just a dream.
A must subscribe!Who are you hanging out with?September 24, 2018 by Mindset Missionary from United StatesLove the concept. If you’re going to become the average of the 5 people you hang out with most, why not hang out with people at the top? It’s hard (impossible?) to change your perspective and gain insight on your own. You need to listen to people who think differently than you do. This show lets you do that.100m in revenuesSeptember 24, 2018 by Rico Caveglia from United StatesI reall enjoyed Reid Tracys story about the success story of Hay House, especially since
it offers such beneficial programs of people making a big positive differience the world.
Great interview.as always Thank you Steve.
Rico Caveglia Fearless Aging PodcastAmazing ContentSeptember 17, 2018 by The Note Guy from United StatesYou have to love the insight that Steve and his guests share. It’s a must listen to for anyone looking to grow their business. Thank you for sharing!Awesome ShowSeptember 10, 2018 by Alyson Franz from United StatesThis is a new show that is off to a great start. Steve interviews high level entrepreneurs who think outside of the box and share inside information about their success and how they run their companies. Steve digs deep and the interviews are very interesting. As an author myself, I especially love the interview with Reid Tracy of Hay House. I definitely recommend this show!Chris Lochead Mercury Interactive--Cindy MasseySeptember 8, 2018 by Cindym37 from United StatesWhat I like most about this interview is that first it was down to earth advice. Second, stand out be different and then claim it. Clain the niche! Great going Steve, another winner. I would add my own quote: Dare to be different.Required Education for Growth-Minded EntrepreneursSeptember 7, 2018 by Janny-Jan from United StatesCongrats on creating a needed and timely new podcast. I'm loving the energy between you, the crew, and your guests (although maybe take. a. breath. and take in what's being said before diving into the next question :-). In this age of so-called overnight success and easy-breezy get-rich-quick talk, it's really helpful to hear just how much struggle each accomplished mogul endured, both business-wise and personally, often for years. And how much they value their own spiritual growth as part of the formula behind their success. Thank you for sharing these inspiring stories!Required Education for Growth-Minded EntrepreneursSeptember 7, 2018 by J._W. from United StatesCongrats on creating a needed and timely new podcast.

This is a new level of information that you don't typically hear. These are well-seasoned entrepreneurs. It's inspiring and keeps me wanting to hear more!Expand my MindSeptember 5, 2018 by Brande Weber from United States8 figures felt like something that isn’t even in my reach in my lifetime. However, after listening to these podcasts I realize I need to dream bigger and keep focused on my goals. I would have never thought I could even accomplish something like this due to a limited mindset around money. This Podcast has expanded my mind and beliefs about what is possible for me. Thanks!Hosts That Ask Guests the Questions You Want AnsweredSeptember 5, 2018 by Lori Barr from United StatesEven if you have routine access to 8 figure entrepreneurs, you may not have the opportunity to ask the probing questions Steve, Mary and Richard ask week after week. Worth every moment of listening.Qualities of CharacterSeptember 5, 2018 by Silt Lv from United Statesoccasionally hilarious, sometimes tense, impressively open and real…. good show.
The “team” of interviews allows for a broader and appropriate conversation navigation and they seem to tag team very well. It also seems their questions are getting better and more focused with each interview.
raw real insights how what it takes, which mostly are coming down to qualities of personal character.Awesome advice from amazing peopleSeptember 5, 2018 by BeingRaluca from RomaniaI loved the episodes I listened to so far, they’re entertaining and packed full of insights into life, business, making money and living a meaningful life.Gems!!!September 5, 2018 by Dragon of dreaming from United StatesI am just getting ready to launch the fund-raising portion of my nonprofit and these podcasts are the perfect inspiration!

This podcast gives you the viewpoint and experience of some of the best VERY successful entrepreneurs around.PossibilitarianSeptember 5, 2018 by GailSimard from CanadaI've listened to all the podcasts and learned so much. I especially loved the interview with Reid Tracy from HayHouse. I'm a big fan of their books and have attended over a dozen of their live events, where Reid is always available and meeting fans. Also really loved hearing Brian Smith's story (met him at events too) and learning so much from Naveen Jain. This is a podcast I'm looking forward to.Pivotal PodcastSeptember 5, 2018 by N Franc from United StatesI’m in a point in my life where I’m trying to figure out the best steps to move forward, both in life and with a potential business. There are so many great pieces of advice scattered throughout each episode. By listening to this podcast, I hope all the nuggets of wisdom can help me get over the walls blocking me from succeeding in my own life.Very informativeSeptember 4, 2018 by NicoleO0717 from United StatesThis podcast is fun, upbeat, and transparent in its delivery of interviews with 8+ figure entrepreneurs.The next levelSeptember 3, 2018 by Morgana_Rae from United StatesHow many business podcasts are interviewing the same people, covering the same information, yada yada yada? Stevel Olsher breaks out of the pack, playing with the BIG KIDS of profit, scaling, impact. Sooo interesting to hear how they get there and how different the thinking is between 7 and 8 figures.Keeping up with each new episode is just a no-brainer! ?September 3, 2018 by scottsdaleyorkiemom from United StatesLike everything visionary entrepreneur and thought leader Steve Olsher puts out in the world of business building, marketing, and lifestyle -- Beyond Eight Figures has already turned to gold (just like the beautiful show branding ?)
I'm not such a big fan of the 'morning zoo' format and the 'down these mean streets' language... and here's the thing:
1 it's good thing to get out of my comfort zone in reasonable increments on a regular basis ?
2 the content is so valuable and entertaining that for me keeping up with each new episode is just a no-brainer! ???
Thanks for this insightful, savvy, poignant, and inspiring addition to your impressive business repertoire, Steve!Beyond 8 figures, great content, straight up...September 3, 2018 by DreamBigToday from United StatesIf you want a lot of fluff, then this is definitely not the show for you. This cuts right to the core of what it really takes to build, create, and sustain an 8 figure biz. You'll get a peek inside what works and what doesn't from experts who are and who have done it. Enjoy the ride!Unveils deep wisdomSeptember 3, 2018 by TheDarkLord24189 from United StatesI absolutely loved the interview with Naveen Jain. What brilliance was uncovered.

I can't wait to listen to it again & to the others. Thanks Steve.Fantastic, Thoughtful & MeaningfulSeptember 3, 2018 by Fav. Ferret from United StatesReally insightful inside strategies on how super successful businesses have made it.
I will keep listening!Beyond Expectations!September 2, 2018 by another8hours from United StatesLove this show!

I've been amazed at how much each guest is willing to reveal, and their journeys are incredible. Keep up the great work!Love the new show!September 2, 2018 by Women Talk from CanadaI love, love, love the idea of a podcast about people who have succeeded BIG TIME with their business!
Once you reach your smaller goals (6 & 7 figures), you must move on from what you did to get there, and set new goals with new mentors! Next step is learning from the 8 figure entrepreneurs - it’s a whole different ball game!!!
There are so many lessons to be learned from these inspiring leaders!
Brigitte100 M in Annual Revenue, Reid Tracy,Hay House PublishingSeptember 2, 2018 by Dr. Maryann from United StatesThis is great information for, not only publishing houses, but for any business that hasn't looked into scaling their employees for business growth. The growth of Hay House into a 100 M dollar company has also gave rise to the designation of "New Age" books which has helped catapult authors who may never have had the opportunity to make the best sellers list. What a success story.Lurn--Cindy MasseySeptember 2, 2018 by Cindym37 from United StatesI liked Anik's openness. I also enjoyed his story about how the business went down and how he had to go back to basics or what made his money in the beginning. I like what you are doing regarding putting a mindset out there that it is more than the brass ring, it is service to the people and all of your guests are saying that in their own way! Thank you Steve Olsher!This is next level...September 2, 2018 by HowieRocks from United StatesTo get to the next level you need to learn from people that are already there - this is awesome! So many people focus on getting to 6 figures (which is awesome) but when you’re ready to get to 7 or 8 you can feel like you’re on your own - not anymore you can apply this stuff now!Real InterviewsSeptember 1, 2018 by Time you will never get back from United StatesI love that Steve left in the entire interview so people can hear what it’s like to interview a person of this caliber. Too often people would cut that out so the listener thinks the interview was easy and all went perfect. But Steve worked through the interview and allowed Naveen to provide great content. Well done.Love Steve Olsher!September 1, 2018 by CrystalHK13 from United StatesI absolutely love everything that Steve Olsher does and this podcast is no exception. Thank you for bringing all these wonderful interviews into my space.Next levelSeptember 1, 2018 by Blake4 from United StatesI have been looking for a way to take it to the next level. ????Access To Amazing GuestsSeptember 1, 2018 by cwjahnke from United StatesSteve Olsher and his team have found at least 17 ways to develop real relationships with amazing influencers and they bring those people front and center to teach average people how to do the same and how to benefit from the wisdom of many of the world’s highest performers. For example, learning from Reid Tracy and his experience with Louise Hay and Hayhouse, is an invaluable investment with your time.Focusing on ExcellenceSeptember 1, 2018 by MusikBoy from United StatesSteve's new show: Beyond 8 Figures has a specific mission which is to help listeners understand how those who create big businesses think. Seeing the world from the perspective of those who have "done it" is different than those who have not made it that far. Steve's brilliance is in how he extracts the specific thinking patterns and natural decision making process that only those who are generating $1M a month posess. A brilliant show, great story telling and actionable details make this show very special.Great insights!September 1, 2018 by Stacey Copas from AustraliaGreat behind the scenes insights on how to scale beyond what most of us can even imagine. Helps to make it real and inspire growth.Growing into a billionaireAugust 31, 2018 by BillionaireBoss from United StatesThe success tools and habits described here have helped me to be a better leader and business owner. I look forward to new concepts every week! Thank you!?Access to Top Influencers and IconsAugust 31, 2018 by Lani K. from United StatesBeyond 8 Figures provides rare access to the everyday personal and business lives of leading influencers and "icons" in all walks of business. Highly recommend that serious entrepreneurs, business leaders and anyone interested in achieving self-reliance tune in to get potent insights and "coaching" in both personal and business development. Kudos to Steve and Team for launching this gutsy new companion show to Reinvention Radio.Almost unbelievable and absolutely fabulousAugust 31, 2018 by name lady from United StatesImage even finding all of these people to interview that have earned that much money! And then to ask the questions that sometimes make these highly accomplished people squirm. Interesting, insightful, and educational show that is riddle with numerous ideas that the rest of us can utilize.Great Content!August 31, 2018 by danielazeam from United StatesI absolutely love this podcast! The topics discussed are great resources if you are hoping to develop a mindset in business. Very well prepared!To Be The Best You Have To Learn From The Best!August 31, 2018 by Raven-Talk Show Maven from United StatesI love this show because Steve is bringing nothing the best of the best to us. This show we're learning from those who have cracked the 8 figure+ code and are passing the good bad and ugly of their lessons to us. Not everyone can pull off this type of show. Steve Olsher does it wellAccess to leading ‘private’ entrepreneursAugust 31, 2018 by Authentic Liz from AustraliaBy giving us access to amazing successful people we can gain insights we otherwise wouldn’t find.... anywhere! Thought provoking, inspirational, real info to support our own journeys. I’m following this one with great interest.Beyond Wisdom!August 31, 2018 by Never forget again from United KingdomSo far I listened to the Naveed Jain interview and it was jam-packed full of wisdom! ??
I had wondered if interviewing people so far ahead would be relevant? And perhaps there’d be the danger of wanting to run before walking... ?
However this interview shared advice and ways of thinking that are applicable at any stage of business! ???
Absolutely loved it and have the other episodes lined up in my queue...New and DifferentAugust 31, 2018 by Caring Creative from United StatesInterviewing billionaires is enlightening. They think differently. Steve Olsher’s knack for asking the right questions and drilling down to the essence of what that is makes this show unique. As entrepreneurs we need this.Great infoAugust 31, 2018 by Mr. Hat Trick from United StatesThis is a great show with great guests. really good information, Steve does a great job disecting how successful entrepreneurs got that way.Dynamic Threo did it again, Awesome podcast!August 31, 2018 by Esmie Lawrence from CanadaI listened to Beyond 8 Figures with Steve Olsher, Mary Goulet, and Richard Otey. The Dynamic Threo interviewed Anik Singal (founder of Learn) and author of the new book: eSCAPE. One takeaway, you must network with others. Excellent interview Dynamic Threo!Steve, Rich and Mary interview vry accomplised entrepreneurs - great conversation!August 31, 2018 by debontheradio from United StatesStarting a business can be hard. In this podcast, Steve Olsher finds out why some companies struggle to reach six figures while others scale to 7-9 figures. The podcast conversation is essentially a mission to identify the key differentiators that empower businesses to scale… and exit. Highly recommended - they talk about their proven methodologies, tactics, and strategies.Hosts ask a great variety of questions.August 31, 2018 by Scholarship Coach from United StatesI enjoy the realness of the conversations, the variety of the topics and types of questions asked. Some guests talk more about what it was like to grow the business while others focus more on exiting. Each conversation is tailored to the guests’ expertise. Questions are skillfully asked to dive deep and seek pearls of wisdom from each guest.The Insignt and Wisdon is Invaluable!!August 30, 2018 by Coach Tamara from United StatesI love this podcast! It's a great reminder that 10 figure entrepreneurs have the same insecurities and have gone through the same challenges that us 6 figures entrepreneurs have gone through. The insignt and wisdom is invaluable.
Thank you for creating this podcast!Healthy Love, Sex & Intimacy Coach at Uncage LoveAugust 30, 2018 by River Roaring from United StatesThis podcast is wonderful!

I so appreciate the no-fluff approach. I have listened to three episodes already and have a list of specific, implementable items that our team will be following up on.Thought provokingAugust 30, 2018 by Momifero from United StatesPodcasts offer new perspectives on enhancing my business, mostly in ways I’ve not really considered before. Great content!Great showAugust 30, 2018 by Rouan Kruger from South AfricaI really loved when Naveen Jain talked about that once you become an expert you then have to become an incrementalist to grow 10x or 100x your business. Focusing on the mission or bigger picture is so important.Once againAugust 30, 2018 by Natalie Blais from CanadaSteve Olsher hits it out of the park. He digs deeper than any other entrepreneur I know and he truly has his finger on the pulse of what needs to be done to nail a successful entrepreneur journey!Worth a listen!August 30, 2018 by Lena Bravo from United StatesIn full transparency, Steve is my husband... :). That said, I have to admit that his new show, Beyond 8 Figures, is really good. I love the interaction between Steve, Mary, Richard and the guests and how they cut right to the chase about how successful entrepreneurs built their businesses. I hear my hubby talk... a lot! This is one forum where I'll actually listen to him. LOL.Refreshing take on successAugust 30, 2018 by Angel cal from United StatesI love Hay House and never get tired of hearing about how they became successful. This isn’t just a rags to riches story but one where someone was willing to think outside the box and stay true to their beliefs and ideals. It amazes me to think that even though the niche they serve is small, Hay House grew to an 8 figure company in relatively little time.

I loved his statement: The fastest way to become a frog is to b a happy tadpole everyday. Naveen was less forthcoming but did provide real insight into the bigger picture. Placing your focus was very important qnd in the beginning I thought the interview was going to derail. I am still glad you let us hear it as it showed the different ways to get the same result of ten figures.
What I learned is that there is both a business entrepreneur and there is also the human emotional elements. For me, deciding to author a book and make a presence online and at the same time keeping the banks at bay in order to think and create is a huge challenge. I have to tell you the road is not short. And at this point, I am just getting started! With a big bank account comes new and more challenging problems and I am already feeling that bite..

Its an eye-opening look at what's possible if you think BIG.Thanks for tuning in!August 27, 2018 by Steve Olsher from United StatesWhen me and my Reinvention Radio team sat down to give consideration to starting our first NEW podcast in almost 9 years, unanimously, we knew that we wanted to focus on one thing... BUSINESS. For years, we've shared incredible stories of inspiration and transformation on Reinvention Radio and, often, we delve into the world of business. However, given that much of the show is dedicated to understanding how people have reinvented their lives, it left little room to REALLY dive into uncovering the key differentiators that empower certain businesses to soar to 8 figures and beyond, while most businesses struggle to reach 5 or 6 figures. And, this is the core mission of our new show, Beyond 8 Figures. To sit down exclusively with entrepreneurs who have either exited for more than $10,000,000 or currently run $10,000,000+ businesses and grill 'em until they share their proven tactics and strategies. This is not your ordinary business podcast. There is NO fluff. We don't ask 'set' questions. We ask the questions that YOU want the answers to... the answers that will empower YOU to Start, Scale or Exit. We hope you enjoy the show and encourage you to connect with us at Beyond 8 Figures dot com. We look forward to hearing your feedback.Amazing Mindsets in Action!August 27, 2018 by Claudia Tappeser from GermanyThank you!
