The Only Hack You Will Need

September 29, 2020
Angelica Carrillo


Episode #1 – There are no hacks. Start loving all your journey instead of wanting to skip to the future. The only hack that we need is that you are creating your future right now.

The Only Hack You Will Need
Listen Going Forward Podcast on Apple Podcasts

The only hack that we need is that you are creating your future right now. In fact, we are creating our future every second.

This podcast is not about empty promises and quick fixes. It’s about the long term approach to how you can love your life and business now.

You don’t need any hacks because your journey fulfills you with all the good and bad, the ups and downs.

Join us and let’s create a brighter future together.

Going Forward Podcast

Episode 1

[00:45] – Hey Everyone, my name is Angie Carrillo, welcome to the Going Forward Podcast, the bilingual podcast to future-proof business and life. Whether it is an economic crisis or personal struggles, every moment is an opportunity to build your future.

[00:45] – I created this because I haven’t seen enough podcasts preparing you for the future. There is a lot of information out there about entrepreneurship, mindset, manifestation, quick transformations, but I believe the only hack that we need is that you are creating your future right now. In fact, we are creating our future every day.

Something I see happens to all of us is that we delay our happiness or sense of fulfillment, for a future is not here and frankly we don’t have the security that it will ever be here.

[00:45] – This is something that has happened to me. We fantasize so much about the future that we forget about the present moment. Or there is the other side, when we are stuck in the past reliving it, again and again. We forget we are right here, right now.

A Reformed Hacker

[00:45] – This is something I used to struggle with. I had 2 previous companies. I founded a profitable company and a venture-backed tech startup, and then I was really a slave of my own company. And I decided I needed freedom so went to travel the world and became an accidental travel influencer.

In my path and in my journey what I realized is that is not having the tech company, the millions in investment, the followers, it’s about enjoying whatever you are creating now.

I’m a Latina born Peru, raised in Mexico, and I’m into honoring my roots. I cannot shake the reality of being born and raised in developing countries I cannot unseen a reality that many of the top futurists have not seen.

The Present Moment is The Hack

[00:45] – Now is the only thing we have. The future is created by small bits of present moments.

I created the Going Forward Podcast because the only hack we need is to enjoy our present moment and have a clear path and clarity to know where we are going.

And for me was so hard to enjoy my present moment because I was always living in the future, chasing the next big goal, the next achievement.

We don’t have to wait to feel successful when we hit those 10 thousand followers or feel accomplished when my company hits a certain amount of sales or raises X amount of funding or in your personal life; you don’t need to find the one and get married to be loved. Nope.

We can be happy with what we have. And attract and work for the things we want.

Mindset, Purpose & Business

[00:45] – There is a sweet spot for that. And to teach this is a combination of my own ideas and ideas and conversations with other people.

Work on your mindset, so you can align it with your purpose and take aligned action. And from there you can use a company to be the vehicle for your purpose.

Is not having all the knowledge, or being ready, or having all the mentors and opportunities. It’s about taking action and taking action NOW. That’s the only hack I can give you.

Who is this for?

Everybody should tune in to Going Forward Podcast if they want to grow if they want to have an entrepreneurial mindset.

If you are into self-development, building a business, then let’s prepare you for 2030 and beyond.

This is why I’m creating a podcast because this is an intimate way to connect. Just you and me.

For Entrepreneurs & Aspiring Entrepreneurs

The path of an entrepreneur is not a straightforward path. We have romanticized it. We have shown all the flowers and success, but I’m here to show the real side of things. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you need to listen to this. If you are a content creator, I would like you to listen to this because the ultimate form of creation it’s entrepreneurship. It’s serving people.

I would like you to use the tools that I’m gonna share with you, the conversations we are going to have. So you can start gathering up tools that work for you and for your business as a vehicle for your own purpose that you have. If you have not yet discovered your purpose I would like you to ask yourself the questions and begin to have more clarity.

Globalized Vision

I lived in Peru, Mexico, the US, UK, Brasil and traveled to 35+countries and this has made me learn multiple languages and realize we are more similar than what we think.

Something that will make us unique as a podcast, is that we all have a very different view of the world. And I’m here to not only showcase one side but multiple sides and integrating them. And what I mean by this is that I’m someone very interested in technology and science and have lived many years in Silicon Valley at the heart of tech innovation. I even lived at NASA while incubating one of my tech startups. So few people have this network and I’m all about sharing it.

So, I’m trying to integrate two views of the world that have not been put together. And be the bridge.

From the science to the woo woo, from the business to spirituality, from the tech to the natural things in life.

I have friends from all walks of life, from the billionaires yes with a b to farmers. I don’t give a f* where you come from. I’m all about where we are going.

I have an ability to talk with all the spectrum of the pyramid we live right now and I would like to bring both views, not only have discussions with the top of the pyramid but talk to everybody.

Because I believe we are all more similar than what we think we are.

And have more inclusive conversations, fewer hacks from only one type of people.

And for this, the podcast won’t be only in English but also in Spanish. It will be bilingual because we want to integrate multiple views and that’s what the future needs.

The future needs you

The future doesn’t need one skewed view of how is the world or more hacks. We don’t need only the limited perspective of the richest few or the white and male. It’s not about that. If we want to tap into humanity’s potential, then we need all humans.

This podcast is not about me being your guide and imposing my definitions and views about success. We have enough of that already.

It’s about you being your own best guide and tapping into your best potential to find freedom, legacy, and love your own definition of success.

And to connect the dots we would need to talk in Spanish we would need to talk in English, in multiple languages.

Expect exceptional conversations, I’m gonna be interviewing people that are teaching me, stories that need to be told, even people that are pushing my buttons. Because it can be fun and interesting.

I cannot wait for you to be part of this podcast, and this community and connect with you. Go to www.angiecarrillo.com/podcast where all the episodes will be available.

So, if you are anyone looking to grow, don’t miss out. Be part of this. Hack your future. Subscribe. Let’s create an outstanding future together.
