Episode #068: Hal Elrod Shares How Changing Your Mornings Can Rock Your Life

Hal ElrodI have heard the name Hal Elrod so many times in the last few weeks, I’ve actually lost count.

So much so that I decided I had to find out what all the fuss is about.

Simply put, he’s written a book that has done what many books are unable to do: convince you to change the habits that aren’t benefitting you and replacing them with a specific morning routine, customizable to you, that will prepare you – better than anything I’ve experienced – to sustain what Hal calls Level 10 Success.

That book is called The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life Before 8am.

Episode #067: Dan Miller, author, 48 Days to the Work You Love (10th Anniversary Revised and Expanded Edition)

Dan MillerYou may recall that Dan Miller was the first ever author to appear on the Read to Lead Podcast.

Episode #067 marks his return; this time to discuss his first book (which is also his latest). In the 10th Anniversary Edition of 48 Days to the Work You Love, there’s plenty of new material, including new chapters. After all, a lot has happened within the world of work the last 10 years.

Think about it. 10 years ago, Podcasting (along with Facebook) was in its infancy, the entire economy we now know as smartphone apps didn’t yet exist, nor did YouTube, Twitter or Instagram. Think about those that have started new companies with the help of sites like Kickstarter. Not even possible in 2004.

Needless to say, a lot has changed. In the new edition, Dan addresses those issues and more.

Episode #066: Seth Godin Shares Wisdom from His New Book: What to do When it’s Your Turn

Seth GodinYou might have to pinch me because, as hard as it is for me to believe, Seth Godin is indeed appearing on the podcast today.

He is easily my favorite business book author of all time and to have him here is nothing short of a thrill for me.

Seth is the author of 17 bestsellers (soon to be 18 no doubt) that have been translated into 35 languages. He’s the founder of several companies, a member of the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame and an influential speaker around the world.

He writes about treating people with respect, the changing economy and ideas that spread. Mostly, he creates projects, many of which end up failing.

Episode #065: Entrepreneur on Fire’s Kate Erickson offers 16 Steps to Successfully Launching Your Business

Kate EricksonMy guest today, entrepreneur Kate Erickson, has an eclectic background.

There’s extensive experience in marketing and advertising, an English degree thrown in for good measure, and a passion for entrepreneurship.

She is the now content creator and community leader for EntrepreneurOnFire, a website and podcast hosted by John Lee Dumas. John, by the way, was a guest on episode #003 of this podcast.

Kate, you see, realized after all those years in marketing and advertising and the banking industry that she didn’t need corporate america to determine her worth for her.

Instead, she decided to determine her own worth by taking all of that knowledge and experience she gained and putting it towards helping others recognize, create and build the business they’ve always dreamed of, but never thought possible.

Episode #064: Multiply Your Time by Procrastinating on Purpose with Rory Vaden

Rory VadenToday my guest is Rory Vaden, New York Times bestselling author of Take the Stairs: 7 Steps to Achieving True Success.

His new book is Procrastinate on Purpose: 5 Permissions to Multiply Your Time.

Unlike most productivity books, this one is not based around tips and tricks, tools and technology, or calendars and checklists.

For example, you will not read techniques like: create a schedule every week, determine your priorities, take a break every few minutes, do the hardest thing first, turn off your email while you are working on your computer, or any of the other “tired” techniques that nearly every article or book on “time-management” refer to.

Instead, you will read about the fascinating dynamics of how human emotions such as guilt, fear, pressure, and worry drive our decisions of how to spend our time each day. Most of all, you’ll learn how to manage those emotions to make different decisions about how to use your time. This book isn’t about what to do with your time; it’s about how to think differently about time.
