In short, Draw to Win explains why you should draw, how to draw (it’s a lot easier than you think), and what to draw in order to lead, sell, innovate, train, or just figure things out on your road to success.

Dan will teach you how to use just seven basic shapes to explain just about anything to just about anyone.

Episode #142: From the Head to the Heart

Becoming a Heart-Led Leader with Tommy Spaulding

In the opening of his latest book, my guest today says “the journey to heart-led leadership covers only 18 inches, but it lasts a lifetime.” 

That is, the distance from the head to the heart is just 18 inches. New York Times bestselling author Tommy Spaulding divides his new book, The Heart Led Leader, into 18 main chapters, each one focused on a different aspect of the journey and highlighting people and companies exemplifying heart-led leadership at its best.

It begins, Tommy says, with asking these questions: Who are you? Who do you want to become? What do you want to be known for as a person and as a leader? And what is your leadership philosophy?

This philosophy will serve as a compass to guide every action and decision.

Episode #141: The 4 Cornerstones for Strategic Living with Brian Holmes

Grab his FREE course and profile!

I had the chance to meet Brian Holmes at a recent 3-day event put on by former guest Ray Edwards called Copywriting Academy Live. 

I was immediately impressed with Brian for many reasons, not the least of which was his friendly and inviting demeanor, his quite confidence, and his better-than-average listening skills (I always notice a good listener).

Brian mentioned he had just completed a new book. As he began to describe its contents, I was immediately intrigued. Though it is very unusual for me to extend an invitation to be on the show to someone whose book I haven’t yet read, inviting Brian seemed like the obvious thing to do. I’m VERY glad I did.

In The 4 Cornerstones for Strategic Living, Brian gives every person a proven system (a blueprint) for constructing the life they desire.
