215: Peter Winick—Can A Thought Leader Help You Think Better?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 29, 2020 8:48:58 AM

Learn how to think better, think smarter

I had really not paid attention to a category of professionals called “Thought Leaders.” But when Peter Winick reached out to me about growing my business as a “thought leader,” I was curious. Who were these folks and what did they do? I invited him onto our podcast to share his purpose and to educate us on the power and potential of thought leaders to help us, each of us, “think better.” Now I am a devoted member of Peter’s Thought Leaders Thinking Group and enjoy every minute of our weekly hour together with him and his business partner Bill Sherman, along with several dozen very thoughtful leaders. Would you also like to learn how to think better? Listen in!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 26, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to embrace change rather than flee from it 

I have had the pleasure of interviewing Michael (Mike) Tate once before on our podcast, in March of 2019. He is a charming man who has a purpose and a passion to help others find their way through often-challenging times. Today's podcast focuses on his new book, "Roll Up Your Sleeves," a collection of common-sense approaches to managing stress that are very helpful for leaders, in their careers and in their lives. Career coaching is Mike’s passion and calling, and he loves helping clients make their best next career move. Are you facing some big changes in your work, your life? I invite you to listen in and learn from Mike. He has great lessons for all of us.

206: Dave McKeown—The Need For Self-Evolved Leadership

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 8, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to be the great leader the future needs!

We have been developing a Leadership Academy for a healthcare system and working with their team to develop great leaders. This is particularly important during times of great stress, like this pandemic that is upon us. But it is equally important during the more normal yet still uncertain times that were affecting the world before the COVID-19 mess. The need for effective leadership goes way beyond healthcare. It is a recurring theme virtually everywhere. But what type of leaders are needed for the Fourth Industrial Revolution, with all the changes to our workplace and workers? Add the pandemic to the mix and leadership is facing its own crisis. How can we soften the great transformation and enable leaders of today to refocus for tomorrow? Listen in.

“It’s important to be an informed consumer. We are in unprecedented times due to pandemic concerns, geopolitical tensions and our own presidential election. You should become familiar with how your broker-dealer handles customer service to prevent problems and make sure your trades are executed smoothly,” says Dan Pipitone, co-founder and owner of TradeZero America. We interviewed Dan so we could help you, our listeners, think clearly about your own relationship with your broker-dealer during the ups and downs of today's stock market. Crucial listening!

171: Michael Wigge—Nothing Is Impossible!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jan 27, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to overcome obstacles, tackle challenges and succeed!

You might wonder why we invited German comedian, travel writer, television producer and soft skill trainer Michael Wigge to speak to our listeners about setting a record for the longest donkey ride in music television history, dressed as Henry VIII. Or about the time he crossed Germany on a Mibo Mastr scooter, covering 2,500 kilometers (1553 miles) in 80 days. Or how he's travelled the world for free, several times, and written two books about it. This is one guy who knows how to overcome challenges, find creative solutions, and persevere. And we can learn to do it too!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Aug 26, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to turn a failure into a phenomenal success!

Todd Palmer loves the same things we do: how to help entrepreneurs and business leaders do better. As he says on his website, he helps business leaders Get S#!t Done. But how does he do this, differently than others might? And what can you and I learn from his approach, his own experiences, and his failures and successes? Turns out, a lot. In our conversation today, Todd and I talk about entrepreneurs getting stuck or stalled, then turning around and finding ways to build successful businesses. Sound familiar? (Hint: my book, "On the Brink.") Lots to learn here!

125: Jared Tate—Creating DigiByte, Cryptocurrency With the Best Speed, Ease and Security

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 19, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Jared Tate shares how he is powerfully disrupting currency with blockchain!

You might just be a real fan of Jared Tate. So many in the DigiByte (DGB) world are. Jared founded DigiBYte in 2013, then the next year, launched DGB's genesis block to create a better cryptocurrency. Recognizing that blockchain is the wave of the future (or more accurately, the tsunami), disrupting all kinds of markets and creating new ones, we did a podcast with Jared in June 2018. So much has happened since then that we did another one just now, and Jared was terrific, again. Clearly, blockchain and cryptocurrency are two phenomena you should be watching carefully, and listening to our podcast with Jared is an important step in that direction.
