Shrugged Collective

Rock Bottom to Rock Star w/ Chad Mcbain  — Real Chalk #51

Social media is the future, and in order to dominate your field you must have a strong social media presence with unique influencers, organic content, and ingenious marketing. Which is why you are about to listen to my man Chad McBain.

Chad has helped build several 7 figure businesses by being the “man behind the scenes” and setting a ridiculous standard for what it means to be an expert in social media marketing. Are you having trouble in this area at all!? Then this is definitely the episode for you. Chad lays out some ground rules that make people successful or ultimately make people broke. Having been in his own whirlwind of ups and downs, like myself, he points out the most important factors that kept him motivated during every step of the way.

We also touch on several new business ventures that he is currently working on with his significant other (Laci Kay Somers… Who just happens to have 10M followers) including cryptocurrency, music, and exotic car businesses.

This episode literally has a little bit of EVERYTHING in it with a super casual feel. You’re going to learn a ton while also feeling like you’re sitting on the couch right next to us. Let’s bro out, get motivated, and learn some things. From rock bottom to rock star… Have great listen!

  • Let me preface this by saying I am a massive Shrugged Collective fan, listening to each show as they become available during the week. I have learnt a lot, had many (what Oprah would call) Aha moments and been able to implement both nutrition, mind and movement techniques in my life. However Real Chalk #51 was the biggest load of complete dribble I have heard on a podcast, perhaps ever. I finally turned off shortly after the 1hour mark, unable to continue listening to the egotistical and self-indulgent wankery – no one cares if your house is worth $38mil or that your mate is flying you to Paris for Christmas. Out of touch bs that the average Joe has no chance of relating to. If I wanted to listen to such garage I would watch the Kardashians. Thanks for reading and peace out.

  • What a total douche.

    This kid is a fucking idiot, and full of bullshit. He claims to have started companies lMFAO. HEY CHAD MCBAIN, you fucking dummy. You were a nobody entry level employee who was hired, then fired. You had NO skin in the game, you had no equity because you have no skills and capabilities of operating, and building a company.

    This podcast had no insight
    You didn’t press on any questions where he was evading
    You didn’t have any follow-up questions

    ..and with shredz, a missed opportunity to provide REAL lessons. In stead, bullshit answers like “at end of the day x” “I can’t talk about this x”

  • Yes, after working deeply with Scam bot reviews i defirintiate 2 main types of crypto scam that ruin even the best ever reputation of founder:
    HYIP-projects (financial pyramids)
    Classic pyramid schemes like MMM did not go anywhere, they just moved to the crypto-zone and are now called “HYIP-projects. And from this they became even more dangerous. But if the organizers of MMM, Finico and other pyramids were caught, convicted by criminal articles and sent to jail, the organizers of Torexo, Deximum and similar no one put in jail, because it is much harder to find and catch these cheaters.
    Fake Startups
    These are scams at the intersection of real business and crypto. Usually they announce about creation of startup, usually IT, like dating site or mail-service or aggregator of something, and funds for its development are collected via cryptocurrency. Investors are promised mountains of gold, a percentage of future profits. In reality, no one is going to develop the project initially, and after a while the project dies, and all the crypto “spent on development, but it did not work.
