Episode #057: Improve Your Focus, Boost Your Energy and Make the Most of Your Time with Erik Fisher

Erik FisherTo say today’s guest and I have a lot in common would probably be an understatement.

Erik Fisher is a podcaster (check), speaker (check) and coach (check). In the past year, he has added Productivity Author to his list of accolades (maybe author will be something I too can add one day).

Erik’s speaking gigs include Podcast Movement (August 2014), a conference I was also fortunate to speak at, as well as this October’s Social Media Success Summit and 2015’s Social Media Marketing World.

And, Erik became an author last fall with the release of the first in a three part series on goals called Ready Aim Fire!: A Practical Guide To Setting And Achieving Goals (Beyond The To Do List Book 1).

This year, Erik and co-author Jim Woods, have followed it up with the release of Hit The Mark!: Improve Your Focus Boost Your Energy Make the Most of Your Time (Beyond The To Do List Book 2).

Episode #056: Mike Michalowicz on the Profit First Formula that will Transform Your Business into a Money-Making Machine

Mike Michalowicz

By his 35th birthday, Mike Michalowicz had founded and sold two multi-million dollar companies.

Confident that he had the formula for success, he became an angel investor…and proceeded to lose his entire fortune. Ouch!

Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. Among other innovative strategies, Mike created the “Profit First Formula”, a way for businesses to ensure profitability from their very next deposit forward.

Mike is now running his third million dollar venture, is a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal; is the former MSNBC business make-over expert; is a popular keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics; and is the author of The Pumpkin Plan, and The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur, which BusinessWeek deemed “the entrepreneur’s cult classic.”

His latest book is called Profit First: A Simple System to Transform any Business from a Cash-Eating Monster to a Money-Making Machine.

Episode #055: Finding the Quest that Will Bring Purpose to Your Life

Chris GuillebeauIf I could live my 20s and 30s over again, I think I’d live those decades the way Chris Guillebeau has his.

For starters, he visited every country in the world (193) before he turned 35!

He’s built an amazing tribe of fellow non-conformists through his blog and first book, he followed that with writing an instant New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller and, this week, releases his third book called The Happiness of Pursuit: Finding the Quest That Will Bring Purpose to Your Life.

If you’re anything like the people whose stories Chris shares in the book, you are continually cognizant of your own mortality and are driven by the desire to leave this world better than you found it. If that describes you, or the ‘you’ you’d like to be, then you’re in for a real treat.
