For two years, Steve Larsen was the Lead Funnel Builder at ClickFunnels for Russell Brunson, and put over 500 sales funnels under his belt, eventually earning a "Two Comma Club" award (a funnel that made over $1,000,000).
I recently launched my funnel, www.ShawnMYesner.com/BecomeDebtFree after taking the One Funnel Away Challenge (this is my affiliate link) with Steve as one of our coaches. Thanks to all of you who supported the funnel, we're helping people to get out of debt and I've hit the "One Comma Club" (over $1,000 generated from the funnel).
In today's episode, I interview Steve and his energy is infectious!
How did he feel using funnels to "bootstrap" his way to the event that introduced him to Russell?
What is it like to get that first subscriber, first sale? What about the 1,000th?

Debt settlement companies advertise that they can eliminate your debt for a fraction of what you owe, so should you hire one?
Certainly there are great debt settlement companies out there, and we get great referrals from them. Most debt settlement companies, however, can be a scam.

This week's episode is part of a project that I worked on for the One Funnel Away challenge - The Origin Story for Yesner Law. I've told parts of this story within the podcast and on other podcasts, but never as raw as you're going to hear it this week.
My hope is that you take away some do's and don'ts, and gain a little insight into how and why I started the law firm.
Speaking of the One Funnel Away Challenge, start to look for other products I created to help people Become Debt Free - those should be rolling out in the coming weeks.

The Crushing Debt Podcast was created to help you eliminate the financial bullies in your life.
A "financial bully" is a collection company or creditor who threatens a lawsuit, garnishment, or makes repeated phone calls to try to collect a debt. It is a company with a "customer service" representative who only reads from a prepared script rather than trying to understand your financial hardships. A "financial bully" is a company that doesn't care about your current financial situation and only wants the money you allegedly owe.
The Crushing Debt Podcast provides practical answers around such topics as real estate litigation, partition, quiet title, chapter 7 liquidation, chapter 13 reorganization, and Chapter 11 business bankruptcies, short sales, loan modifications, creditor harassment and other related topics. I interview industry professionals and experts, as well as provide practical information you can use without all the "legalese."
The goal of the show is simple - I hope that you have more money at the end of the month, rather than more month at the end of the money.
After reading Profit First, my mindset around money, cash flow and profit changed forever!

For those who think Home Title Theft cannot happen, or will not happen to them, listen to this week's episode!
Jennie Restrepo, the Director of Implementation for Fraudshine State discusses the case of Linda Cleland, who was evicted from her free and clear childhood home in 2014.
Ms. Cleland was homeless for seven months and, after a three-year battle finally unwound the theft of her home and got back the title to her house.
The person who committed this crime served an eight-year prison sentence and then will serve fifteen years probation, but the hardship on Ms. Cleland was immeasurable.
Title insurance did not help her, the clerk of the court did not help her, and even the police were powerless to help Ms. Cleland.
Ultimately, the County prosecuting attorney was able to successfully record a document in the County public records to unwind all of the damage (including deeds and mortgage documents for many other people and properties, including Ms. Cleland).
Visit www.fraudshinestate.com/checkhere for your free title evaluation. You can then sign up for Fraudshine State's monthly monitoring service, or their firewall protection.
Fraudshine might have prevented the loss of Ms. Cleland's house, had it existed back in 2014.
If you think something has happened to the title to your house, contact my office for a free consultation or a connection to a local attorney who may be able to help you - Shawn@YesnerLaw.com or www.YesnerLaw.com.
Is your home protected from being stolen?
Did you know that someone can forge documents, record them in the County public records, then evict you from your home, and that is NOT covered by your title insurance policy!
Your home owner's insurance policy won't protect you from your house being stolen!
The Clerk of Court will allow the criminals to record fraudulent documents (although unintentionally as the Clerks do not check the documents for fraud)!
Even the police won't protect you from the criminal(s) that want to steal your house!
How do you protect yourself and your family?
Listen to this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast with our friend, Kevin Overstreet, of Insured Title Agency, Synergy Title, Become a Better Agent, and Fraudshine State.

In this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, we talk about professional liability insurance, malpractice insurance, errors & omissions insurance, and E&O insurance with our friend, show sponsor, and referral partner, Sam Cohen of Attorneys First Insurance Agency.
Sam and I talk about a variety of topics including:
I have remained silent about the racial issues in our Country. The reason for my silence is that: (1) I didn't know what to say, and (2) I didn't know how to say it in a manner that gives respect to what our Country is going through right now.
On this Bonus Episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast, I talk with my friend and referral partner, Bridgette Domingos, owner and founder of Domingos Law, a criminal defense law firm, to better education myself about the racial issue confronting our country, our society today. I thank Bridgette for helping with this difficult but important conversation.
If you want to make a difference, you can do so by: (1) treating everyone with respect and love, (2) stopping hateful speech, (3) and educating yourself and your family.
Please tune in to Bridgette as well as other community leaders at the "Where Do We Go From Here" panel discussion, Tuesday, July 9, 2020, from 6 - 8 PM (Eastern). You can attend at the Florida You Judge website.
Bridgette and I discuss a few uncomfortable topics like:

On this week’s episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, we’re happy to have Brian Morris back on the show to talk about his new book - How to Wipe Your Dad’s Ass and Other Things his Doctor won’t tell you about Alzheimer’s.
Brian is NOT a doctor, nor is he a licensed caregiver for people suffering from dementia. Brian IS a son who watched and cared for his father who eventually did die from Alzheimer’s. Brian captures the end of his father’s life with raw, unfiltered reality and emotion. Brian also tells stories and gives practical advice to family members dealing with a loved one fighting this disease. I read this book and although I have no family members currently fighting dementia, I thought it was a fantastic book!
Brian and I discuss: (1) the financial impact of Alzheimer’s, (2) his purpose for writing the book, (3) the signs of dementia, (4) some “how to” and (5) other topics.
You can find the book on Amazon here.
You can contact Brian here.

What can you do to protect your home from foreclosure if you’ve lost income or your job during the COVID-19 shutdown? As we re-emerge and re-open the economy in Phase 1, what should you do if you fell behind in your mortgage payments over the last few months?
I thank Money Talk 1010AM and Tampa Bay Today with Shriner for allowing me to use that interview to turn into today’s podcast episode.
The main point to understand is that the forbearance does NOT save your home; it merely gives you some breathing room in your budget. You still need to catch up your mortgage payments when the forbearance is over, like loan modifications and repayment plans, and why a refinance after a forbearance is a bad idea.
Please remember to visit our sponsor, Attorneys First Insurance, if you are an attorney or title company and need a quote for malpractice insurance. If Sam Cohen doesn’t answer on the first ring, you are eligible for a substantial cash prize, or at least a sincere apology.
In this week’s episode, I take some time to answer some great listener questions. Thank you all for keeping the questions coming in! I hope all of you are staying safe during the pandemic. Here in Tampa, FL (and in many other areas) starts Phase 1 to “reopen” the Country. We hope that everyone continues to stay safe and wash your hands!
Today, we cover:
Please also visit our sponsor, Sam Cohen, with Attorneys First Insurance, if you are an attorney or title company looking for an honest price on malpractice insurance.
Please continue to keep these great questions coming in, for us to answer on future episodes. Thank you for being a listener and please connect with me by email at Shawn@YesnerLaw.com, if there’s anything I can do to help as we hopefully emerge from this worldwide pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused Congress to pass the Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security Act - the CARES Act. While most people talk about the SBA Lending, Payroll Protection Plan (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL), many people don't know or understand the rest of the Act and its impact on your ability to make and save money.
In this week's episode of The Crushing Debt Podcast, we talk about:
Please also visit our sponsor, Attorneys First Insurance and talk to Sam Cohen about E&O Insurance for your law firm or title company.
