Isaac Mashman is a businessman, podcast host and public speaker. Originally from Jacksonville, Florida and hailing from a lower middle class home, he grew up seeing lack and limitation. This upbringing was what eventually led him to the idea of entrepreneurship. The ability to live a lifestyle of complete freedom, and the opposite of what he once knew was the solution to his problems. Over the span of several years, and nearly a dozen various business ideas, it was in 2020 that Isaac launched his company Mashman Ventures, a public relations firm that specializes in working with people who want to be followed, in-demand, and respected to build their personal brands. Isaac’s intention behind everything he does is to strive to live up to his potential, while both documenting and demonstrating that it is in fact possible to go from nothing, to a whole lot of something. He is the host of Chase the Vision with Isaac Mashman, a business, self-development podcast.

Born and raised in Franklin, Tennessee Sofie Rovenstine was Miss Tennessee Teen USA 2018 and placed Top 10 that year at Miss Teen USA. Since giving up her crown she has gone on to walk in the coveted Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, shoot their campaign, and has quickly made a name for herself as an up and coming model. With all of these accolades it would be easy to change who you are for what everyone else thinks you should be. The most inspiring thing about Sofie is that her faith walk and morals have always been at the forefront of what she does. From the start she promised herself that she wouldn't fall in to these pressures, even putting it in all of her contracts.  Sofie is no doubt a star in the making and I can't wait to see where it takes her!

It's good to FAIL! It means you're getting closer to success. How does someone go from star quarterback, to successful engineer, to a four hour work week and it be the happiest he's ever been? It has to do with following your passions... and my next guest is letting us know the secrets... all the way from Taiwan! My guest Tyler Walter is a corporate dropout who followed his passions to life full of travel and greatness. In his own words he says, "You see everyone else thought I was successful but, I felt miserable. Everyone else seemed to be fine signing up for the next 40 years chained to their cubicle but, I was bored to tears. I felt like I was somebody else 40 hours a week and I got to be myself on the weekends where I spent my free time drinking to much and wasting time watching Netflix. I had unhealthy habits and an unhealthy mindset. BUT, I knew I wanted more. I wanted to travel, spend more time with friends, work on something energizing, and live a LIFE BY DESIGN not a life someone else designed for me." Tyler gives incredible tips on how important healthy habits are. We discuss how important who you surround yourself with is, as well as his favorite books. Grab a pen and paper, you're gonna need it!
