#164: SHOCKING NEWS: People are weak!

A lot of people are going to be offended by what we’re talking about today. This is one of those hugely controversial self-evident truths nobody likes to talk about.

So if you’re easily offended, this is probably not the episode for you. We’re talking about issues that keep us from being who we want to be. It’s really...

Since people are the most precious asset to any business - and hiring the best people can be challenging, today we take a look at what it takes to build a winning culture that...

#160: The 3 Things That Impact Energy

Is energy the missing link to peak performance? As Entrepreneurs, we all know too well the meaning of burning the candle at both ends. Stress, overload, uncertainty and even social isolation.

The problem is that most Entrepreneurs are doing activities with no energy and therefore the activities are unfruitful. In today’s...

#158: The Optimists Die First!

Stay Positive! That’s the common advice given to people who start out in business.

Sales and Marketing are two very important pillars of any business, but which is more important? It’s a common question even the most experienced Entrepreneurs wrestle with.

#154: The Resolve of a CHAMPION!

What makes a true champion? It’s not a trophy. It’s not the talent, the salary, the fastest time, or the most records. It’s not even being the best of the best.
