150: Rita McGrath—Don't Run From Change, Embrace It!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Sep 3, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Hear how nonusers are waiting for you to fulfill their unmet needs!

I had such an amazing conversation with Dr. Rita Gunther McGrath. I have been a fan of her thinking over the past twenty years, and have read and used each of her books, The Entrepreneurial Mindset, Market Busters, Discovery Driven Growth and The End of Competitive Advantage. Her new book, Seeing Around Corners: How to Spot Inflection Points in Business Before They Happen, is coming out today, September 3, 2019, and is the topic of our interview.

136: Brian Solis—Break Your Bad Habits So You Can Achieve Your Goals

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jun 3, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Brian Solis explains how to minimize distraction and maximize productivity!

I could tell you all about Brian Solis in the past. And I will. But our podcast is not about what he was doing before he couldn’t do it anymore. Our talk is all about how he found himself again and wrote an amazing book, "Lifescale: How to Live a More Creative, Productive, and Happy Life," to help others transform their own lives. Brian loved to write. He wrote easily. And then something happened. He stalled. He couldn’t focus, couldn’t find his thoughts. He had to change his own life to find it again. And that is what we want to share with you in our podcast. Don't miss this!

What if you could create your “Life by Design” (not by default). In this podcast, I have the pleasure of speaking with Irina Baranov about just that idea. In fact, how to actually do it! You might be asking, "Really? Can I pause, step back and think about what I want my life to be, not just wander along, letting the path I am on take me on its way?" Why is it important to design our lives, and who typically does this? Listen in to learn a fresh approach to you and your life.
