Allan Blain – Life is Hard, Succeed Any Way

Allan Blain is the former owner and CEO of a $40 million dollar real estate investment company. After realizing that he was not pursuing his true purpose and calling, he launched what he calls his “work-from-anywhere” freedom business, teaching everyday people how to create passive income streams from their phones. Today, he has grown his organization to include over 10,000 others spanning 10 countries, producing millions in annual revenue, and representing countless lives that have been positively impacted by his company’s food supplements.

The Illusion of Perfection

In this episode of The Dad Edge, Larry sits down with Allen Blain to discuss the challenges of life and the importance of vulnerability. They delve into the misconception created by social media and how it can make people believe that others have always been successful without facing any hardships. Allen also shares his own journey of embracing vulnerability and the positive impact it has had on encouraging others. 

Embracing Change and Strengthening Relationships

Embracing change strengthens relationships. This is the underlying theme of the podcast transcript between Larry and Allen. Throughout their conversation, Allen shares his personal journey of embracing change and how it has impacted his relationships, particularly with his wife, Nicole. Despite being in law enforcement for five years, Allen felt called to a different path. He recognized that his entrepreneurial spirit and desire for personal growth were not aligned with a long-term career in law enforcement. 

Leap of Faith and Its Outcomes

This decision required a leap of faith, as he was giving up a stable job and financial security. However, Allen’s willingness to embrace change and follow his calling ultimately strengthened his relationship with his wife.

Overcoming Tragedy

Tragedy can strike anyone at any time, and it is how we respond to these challenges that define us. Allen’s story is a reminder that even in the midst of the darkest moments, there is always a glimmer of hope and an opportunity for personal growth. 

A Path Forward

By reevaluating our choices, finding our true purpose, and surrounding ourselves with a supportive community, we can overcome even the most devastating tragedies.
