Intro 0:02

Do you want to learn effective ways to build relationships, generate sales and grow your business from successful entrepreneurs, startups, and CEOs without listening to a long, long, long interview? If so, you've come to the right place. Gresham Harkless values your time and is ready to share with you precisely the information you're in search of. This is the I AM CEO Podcast.

Gresham Harkless 0:27

Hello, hello, hello, this is Gresh from the I AM CEO Podcast and I have a very special guest on the show today. I have The Truth Jones of TheTruthJones.com. The Truth is awesome to have you on the show.

The Truth Jones 0:36

Thank you for having me on the show, I truly appreciate it.

Gresham Harkless 0:39

No problem, no problem. And what I want to do, is read a little bit more about you so people can hear about all the awesome things that you're doing. And The Truth Jones is an 11-year-old International, Internationally Certified Speaker, Internationally Best Selling Author, TEDx speaker, Successful Day Trader, and the CEO of Return On Investment. The Truth are you ready to speak to the I AM CEO community?

[restrict paid=”true”]

The Truth Jones 0:59

Yes, I am.

Gresham Harkless 1:00

Awesome. Let's do it. So the first question I had was just to hear a little bit more about your CEO story, what led you to start your business?

The Truth Jones 1:06

Well, I started back when I was 8 years old when I wrote my first book, The Win Within. And the reason I read my book is because of the situation. I was going through this at the time, and I didn't know how to express myself. So I express myself through literature. And I wrote my first book, The Win Within and at the time, I was getting bullied by my teammates. So I expressed myself through literature and wrote my first book, The Win Within, that's what got started. And then after that, my mom took me to the Let's get motivated seminar. And I got to see my idol speaker, Mr. Les Brown on stage for the first time. And that's why I want to become a speaker. That's also kind of how I got certified in that way. Because I said, I will get on stage with him in less than a year. And while I did

Gresham Harkless 1:53

Awesome, yeah

The Truth Jones 1:54

I'm part of Les Brown Institute Training, and they had a speaker's competition. And whoever won got to speak on stage with Mr. Les Brown.

Gresham Harkless 2:02

Awesome. That's awesome that you took something where you were getting bullied. And I'm sorry, that happened, obviously, but it seems like it kind of propelled you into having a lot of opportunities to be able to help out so many people by writing your book. And then of course, the awesome opportunity to be able to talk with Les Brown is something that a lot of people don't get to do.

The Truth Jones 2:19

Thank you.

Gresham Harkless 2:20

You're welcome. And now I wanted to ask you what I call exactly how you serve the clients that you work with. So this could be your products and services, could you break down to us a little bit more about like what you do to help support those clients?

The Truth Jones 2:31

Yes. So I have a product and a service, my product is my book, The Win Within, as an actual like product that you have to manufacture. And I have my service, which is my trading course and my basic stock course. And in my basic stock course, it's a webinar. And it's an online webinar that teaches people all the basics and fundamentals about learning and investing in the stock market. So that's what that was.

So that and for that one, you could just go at your own pace and go whatever you want to. It was $97. And then I have my trading course, which also improves as to stuff from sacrum as well, which is 997. But I help you along the way with two coaching sessions about asking questions or whatever you need to know to get started, or if you're having trouble with something. So that's the difference between my stocks, one-on-one course, and The Truth success series training course.

Gresham Harkless 3:21

So, The Truth success series training course is just for anybody that might need help in any aspect, not just about stocks.

The Truth Jones 3:27

Well, no. So mostly specific in stock, stocks, and options.

Gresham Harkless 3:33

Okay. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Well, now I wanted to ask you for what I call your secret sauce. And this could be what you feel kind of distinguishes you and set you apart. But could you give us an example of secret sauce for yourself, and maybe in your business as well?

The Truth Jones 3:44

Well, besides by age by uniqueness a lot of courses that teach you about trading in the stock market and options and a whole bunch of other stuff and teach you everything that you need to know, but I'll teach you how to do it, and give you all the information but then I'll show you how to do that. It'll show you how to get started. It's like one of those things where you help. It's like when you play football, you have to play but you don't know how to run it.

Gresham Harkless 4:10

That makes perfect sense. Yeah, it's all about execution, right?

The Truth Jones 4:12

Yes

Gresham Harkless 4:13

Absolutely. A lot of times people have the like you said playbook game and you know how to run the plays the rationale, everything, all the ins, and outs, but when you get out there on the football field, you don't know what to do. So it's great to be able to kind of lean on people like you and you're developing products that kind of help out support people with that. Absolutely. So now I wanted to switch gears a little bit and ask you for what I call a CEO hack. And this might be an app a book or a habit that you have but it's something that makes you more effective and efficient as a business owner.

The Truth Jones 4:40

Well, something that makes me more efficient as a business owner is more so just offices. I also listened to people's successful business owners every day so I can learn where how they got started, what they were doing, and the shifts in their mindset that made them get to the level or the point they are now.

Gresham Harkless 5:01

Awesome. Yeah, I love that. They always say that success leaves clues. So a lot of times if you can take in the content and listen to those people that are super successful, like you mentioned, like Les Browns of the world that can lead you there if you're able to kind of follow their playbook, so to speak.

The Truth Jones 5:14

Yeah, model those who have already achieved what you want to achieve.

Gresham Harkless 5:17

Yeah, so why not model them? Exactly right. So now I wanted to ask you for what I call a CEO nugget. And this might be a word of wisdom or a piece of advice. Or if you could happen to be a time machine, what would you tell your even younger business self?

The Truth Jones 5:29

I would say for almost four, so that was about three years ago. So if I were to go back three years ago, when I was still getting bullied, I would say ask the bullies. Why they were picking on me, and why were they singling me out at everyone else? Because the reason is, that you never know what someone could be going through in their lives to be as academic issues, personal issues, mom or dad, or they could be struggling with a family member's death, and you never know what someone has going on with their lives. So they don't mind not knowing how to express themselves verbally and in another form without physically having to hurt other people because they're hurt.

Gresham Harkless 6:07

That's true. And that's something to remember, like you say you never know what people are going through. And sometimes people don't know how to kind of manifest those actions. Sometimes you're blessed to be able to write a book. And some of those people that were going through those issues might have been able to do things like that. But that's a great thing to kind of keep in mind and always kind of keep a perspective based on what other people might be going through.

And now I want to ask you my absolute favorite question, which is the definition of what it means to be a CEO. And we're hoping to have different quote-unquote, CEOs on this show. So I wanted to ask you The Truth, what does being a CEO means to you?

The Truth Jones 6:39

As CEO, for me, is being my boss, and being able to well do what I want and live the lifestyle that I want, and help people also live the lifestyles that they want to achieve whatever they want to achieve, can help me achieve both for being a CEO for me exogenous being my own boss and owning a business is to help people or other people achieve their dreams because when I help other people achieve their dreams of achieving my dreams because my dream is to help people achieve theirs.

Gresham Harkless 7:10

There you go. Yeah, I love that in by telling your story being brave enough to be able to do that you're doing that and well beyond your years as I'm sure that you've heard a couple of times so I truly appreciate you for kind of sharing that with us and I think that's an incredible definition.

So The Truth is I truly appreciate you for taking some time out what I wanted to do is pass you the mic so to speak, just to let our readers and our listeners know anything additional about you or your business or any pieces of advice you might have.
