#262: The State Of The Host Address

An Inside Look At My Own Quest For The Next Level


Brian Holmes Host

Over the last two weeks, we have been talking about rising to the next level. The premise is simple: there is a next level waiting, but whether you choose to engage or not is up to you.

As you’re probably aware, I turned 50 earlier this year. While others may not be excited about that landmark, I’m more excited than I’ve ever been.

As we prepare to take our website, podcast, and business to the next level, I want to pull back the curtain today and give you a peek into some of the lessons I’ve learned, the changes made, the challenges faced, and the glorious hope I have about the future.

Tune in to this episode for The State Of The Host Address: An Inside Look At My Own Quest For The Next Level.

History of the Host: 

  • 2012 Next Level Quest
  • No room for double-mindedness
  • Identity and meaning
  • Philosophy and core beliefs challenged
  • Faith, humility, and willingness to learn

The State of the Host: 

  • Turning 50 is not the beginning of the end … it’s the beginning of a new beginning
  • I am confident in whose I am, and I am learning more every day about WHO I am
  • My work matters, and what matters is building people
  • I am committed to those I am created to serve
  • I love God, I love my wife, I love my kids, and all my friends and colleagues

Closing Thoughts:

As we embark on the newest chapter in this QUEST for more, I encourage you to join the movement. Don’t settle for yesterday’s victories … commit to tomorrow’s possibilities. I am in a GREAT place and am ready to climb the mountain to the next level.

How about YOU?

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have recently expanded for a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …


To apply for membership with the Strategic Influencers Mastermind Group, please click the link below, and you will be directed to an online application. Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
