Ed Mylett

Ed Mylett
Life strategist. Serial entrepreneur. Bestselling Author.

Ed Mylett grew up in Diamond Bar, CA. as the only boy in the family with three younger sisters. His father was his first example of what it takes to succeed in life.

Ed decided from a very young age that since he would have to work in life, he might as well work for himself and call his own shots. He realized right away that he was not going to spend his life working for someone else and building their dreams. His wife Kristianna, who had been his sweetheart since they were teenagers, shared that same vision of life. Her father was an engineer who worked hard so her mother could stay home with her six children.

Their initial dream was for Ed to play major league baseball, but an injury sidelined any chance he had for professional athletic career. After putting in countless hours of practice and hard work into baseball for so many years, he wasn't sure what to do next with his life.

While his personal and family life thrived, Ed's career goals stalled. After several job changes, he came across an exciting, entrepreneurial opportunity in the financial services industry with World Financial Group. During their early years in the business, he and Kristianna faced a number of challenges. Ed was always gone in the evenings calling on people and speaking in meetings, and the couple still was not prospering financially. They also couldn't spend much time alone, but they still found joy with being in business with each other.

While Ed has always been more concerned with dreaming big and working hard, Kristianna focuses on establishing financial and family security. He finally convinced her that if she would let him work really hard for three to five years, they would have the next 50-60 years to do whatever they wanted to do. Then finally, his consistent dreaming and effort paid off and his business grew and thrived into a nationwide team of associates, which has turned out some of the most inspirational and successful leaders in the industry. Ed and Kristianna went from being a typical young couple struggling financially, to becoming millionaires while still only in their 30's.

Their business today doesn't just provide the Mylett family with a tremendous income, but it also allows them to have an incredible lifestyle and the freedom to do whatever they want, when they want.

Today, Ed is one of the premier business leaders, peak performance experts, and motivational speakers in the world. He has a passion for mentoring and coaching others on what it takes to become a champion in all areas of life. He has shared the stage and has very close personal relationships with other business legends such as Tony Robbins, John Maxwell, Phil Knight and many others.

After over 20 years of achieving what he thought were his dreams of being a headlining touring comedian and actor, Kyle Cease suddenly discovered that the belief "When something happens, I will be happy" is a complete lie. Following the calling of his heart, he decided to quit his stand-up career at its peak, and now--as a transformational comedian and New York Times bestselling author of I Hope I Screw This Up--he brings his one-of-a-kind wisdom to sold-out audiences in his Evolving Out Loud Live stage show and reaches millions online.

Kyle Cease has made more than 100 different TV and movie appearances, including 10 Things I Hate About You, Not Another Teen Movie, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Chelsea Lately, The Martin Short Show, Comics Unleashed, and numerous VH1 shows. He has two #1 Comedy Central specials to his credit and, in 2009, Kyle earned the #1 ranking on Comedy Central's Stand-up Showdown.

Sonnet of Greatness #1, 2016. Traveling to the School of Greatness, shy,
Guarded, tentative in mind, yet excited, Expectant, ready for growth and to try
Finding new purpose, a spirit relighted. Immersing, expanding, being challenged. To align confidence to competence, Identify intentions unmanaged, Live and love fully; progress with persistence. When fear of failure returned and doubt shook Confidence, walls arising protectively, Kyle Maynard’s spirit smashed down and broke Rationales, excuses; handed you a key To open your heart, be a hope giver, Promise to dream, declare and deliver.

It has been an extraordinary few days for me and I finally have a moment to reflect on the Summit of Greatness.It has been an extraordinary few days for me and I finally have a moment to reflect on the Summit of Greatness.
The people of Ohio have the BIGGEST hearts & I loved having a home away from home. Some people were a little puzzled as to why I was in Ohio but I was more than happy to share why. One of my drivers said "This Lewis Howes must be pretty special if you travelled all the way from Australia for his conference". But before I could utter a word I heard her say "Girl! Your smile just said it all. I need to attend his school"
So to Lewis Howes, the Summit team and the phenomenal speakers my deepest thanks. As I write this my heart continues to sing

In a space of a few days I had the privilege to meet so many extraordinary individuals. Each and every one of you is a beacon of light and it was an incredible honour to have shared this EPIC moment with you all. My family has gotten bigger

I used to struggle with seeing myself as great but the Summit opened my eyes and heart. My understanding of being great is:
The power that a smile has to inspire.
A heart which beats so passionately that the world is a much better place. A fire within which gives us courage to face fears. Being vulnerable. To love deeply, laugh often and live a life of gratitude. Wherever you are on your journey to greatness know you will always have a friend in me, supporting you and cheering you on. I'm always happy for a chat
If you're ever in Melbourne let me know. I'd be more than happy to show you around.
Wishing you all much love & happiness. Show less

I'm just now heading home to Arizona from Ohio and have finally had the chance to reflect on this past weekend.I'm just now heading home to Arizona from Ohio and have finally had the chance to reflect on this past weekend. Something has been nagging at me for days that I couldn't quite put into words; but it finally hit me and I want to share it with you all...
Lewis finishes every single podcast interview by asking 'what's your definition of Greatness?' I have heard him ask that question hundreds of times, and I have listened to every single response he gets. I have contemplated over and over in my own mind how I would answer that question but have not yet been able to get there. I know what Greatness feels like, but I have not been able to figure out how I would put it into words. I finally figured it out.
We tap into our Greatness when we allow ourselves to be led by the fire that burns within us, rather than allowing ourselves to be minimized and controlled by the darkness that surrounds us. Greatness is about connecting with others through love and possibility, rather than pain and fear. We live in a world where our learned behavior is to constantly search for comfort and safety. We are surrounded by people who are stuck in a viscous cycle of believing that tearing others down is the only way they can truly lift themselves up. A world where the majority relates to each other through pain. What we all just experienced was a group of people who brought out the best in each other. Just by showing up, we collectively raised our standards of ourselves and of each other. I felt it with every conversation I had. So I just want to thank each of you for showing up, for raising the bar, thank you for every time you stepped outside of your comfort zone. That is where the magic happens.
This event was the very essence of Greatness. To me, Greatness is when we connect to the deepest part of ourselves that wants to make an impact in this world no matter how big or small, and we allow ourselves to be moved by it in spite of the comfort and safety that our egos are constantly searching for.
And I write this so I can anchor this for myself but also as a nudge to those of you who are worried about losing the momentum of this past weekend - Keep the bar raised. Don't lower your standards to fit into a world that may not be working for you. Don't minimize yourself for the sake of someone else's comfort. Every moment that we allow ourselves to be led by our own greatness, we hold the space open for others to find the greatness within them.
I am so grateful for you Lewis. There are no words to describe the amount of courage it takes for a person to show up in this world the way you do. You have shared your story with the world, and continue to do so. But only you truly know what it took to get here. I just want to acknowledge you for that. Through you we are able to tap into a level of greatness within ourselves that most people only dream about. Thank you for creating and holding that space for us.
I love you guys. Keep the momentum going. Finish the year strong. We've got this. Take a stand for your Greatness. Show less
