The podcast for leaders, believers, creators and small business owners. You’re different. You embrace change and make things happen. You’re crafting your life and your stories and you’re on a journey to do amazing things.
I believe leaders are readers, learning is a life long obsession, listening is an act of love, giving is the greatest gift, and sometimes… inspiration comes from a swift kick in the butt to get moving. So let’s take this next step together.
Nothing happens until the work is done. Right?
The good news is that I already have more than 10 interviews completed. But, it takes time, and I’m still looking for about 20 more guests to interview before launching.
The amazing men and women I’ve spoken to so far all had valuable things to share about passion, persistence, risk, challenges, break-through, and making amazing things happen. I know you’ll get something out of it and I can’t wait to share them with you.
Speaking of sharing with you, when you sign up to be notified of the podcast launch, you’ll also get updates on my journey to bring this podcast to life. After all this is a work in progress for me and I want to chat with you about the how’s, why’s and challenges along the way. Because nothing’s easy – and, frankly, aren’t we all wanting to share our message? I’ll show and tell you about how I’m doing that in my update emails.
So, back to the launch.
My goal is to have 30 interviews completed to officially launch the work in progress podcast.
See below for the wonderful entrepreneurs you’ll be hearing from soon.
I got in massive debt and thought I was going to die.
But, before that, from 1996 to 2009 I built websites, an ecommmerce platform and a CMS platform (before WordPress).
I helped with strategic marketing and business development programs for about 300 CEO’s and launched books, newspapers, magazines, hundreds of websites and countless direct mail and business development programs.
I also worked with Gateway Computers and opened three stores and trained about 50 sales people. I worked with Hearst Newspapers and ended up being VP of Marketing for about five commerce products at Capital One.
I share all this with you because I’ve generated millions of dollars, launched all kinds of things, and I have a unique process and view of the work that makes this kind of success possible.
I’ve made it through failed partnership, recovered from being over $100k in unsecured debt, and learned some important lessons on life beyond work. I think that’s what makes my story and point of view valuable to other business owners who are on a journey to grow and accomplish amazing things.
Because it’s not easy and we shouldn’t “go it alone”, I wanted wanted to launch this podcast to encourage, inspire, and equip as many people as possible on their journey at work and in life.
I’ll hope you’ll join me as I try to help 1 Million Small Business Owners by interviewing others and sharing stories of success, perseverance and vision and values in action.
