Episode #146: Be Obsessed or Be Average with Grant Cardone

Today’s guest is unlike anyone I’ve ever had the chance to interview. 

Grant Cardone suggests that everything we’ve been told since we were young about success and wealth is essentially bunk. That burnout, and the need for time off and balance are all myths. He addresses this and more in his new book called, Be Obsessed or Be Average

Burnout, for example, is often felt only when someone else suggests you should. “You’d better be careful or you’re going to burn yourself out.” If you think the burnout is real, it really just means you’re no longer doing something you’re purposed to do. In other words, it’s time to move on to something else. 

And to the naysayers and haters, those who are going to be critical, envious, and even worse? Grant says they’re just people who have given up on their dreams and are simply spending their lives trying to get others to give up on theirs. Whoa!

Episode #124: The Secret to Solving Your Toughest Sales Challenges

With Tim Sanders

tim sandersPrior to sitting down with Tim Sanders for the first time, I knew very little about him.

An earlier book he’d written, Love is the Killer App, was one I’d heard good things about but had not yet read.

In the case of Tim’s new book, Dealstorming: The Secret Weapon That Can Solve Your Toughest Sales Challenges, many people I respected were talking about it in my Facebook and Twitter feeds. People like Chris Brogan, David Burkus and Michael Port among others. I knew I had to investigate and consider inviting him onto the show.

The topic of sales is not one that comes up on this podcast often. However, if my experience as a leader has taught me anything, it’s that everyone is essentially in sales now. Meaning, the silo’d days of old are over. In Dealstorming, Tim suggests that “one of your most important leadership missions is to overcome the bias against cross-departmental collaboration.”

Episode #107: Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast with Jeff Sanders

Author, 5 AM Miracle

Jeff SandersI first met Jeff Sanders in the spring of 2013, right about the time both of us were set to launch our podcasts.

Since then, a lot has happened. Both Jeff and I have seen our shows nominated for multiple awards, we’ve both had the chance to speak at a number of conferences, and quite a bit more.

In Jeff’s case, his journey also included being offered a book deal about this time last year. 5 AM Miracle: Dominate Your Day Before Breakfast, out now, is the one we discuss today. I couldn’t be more proud of him.

Jeff has positioned himself as the guy who bounces out of bed when most of us are sound asleep. He understands what it takes to tackle big goals and actually achieve them again and again. In fact, since he first launched the weekly 5 AM Miracle podcast on July 1, 2013, he has yet to miss a single Monday (126 and counting).
