Do you want to be the wave or surfer?
In full disclosure...I was Stephen Woessner's guest for episode 9 of Onward Nation. It was an incredible experience because the format of the show gave me the opportunity to share deeply personal stories -- stories that have impacted my business, family -- and will hopefully save business owners who listen to the episode from making similar mistakes. But also the successes, too. I tried to give everything I could to episode 9...and so I ask you..."Do you want to be the wave or do you want to be the surfer?" Go study all of Onward Nation's episodes -- because when you do -- YOU WILL BE THE SURFER! -- Afraa Zammam, episode 9.
practical and tactical
Stephen invited me to be his guest for episode 12 of Onward Nation -- and I am so glad I accepted his invitation. It is not common to find a podcast where the questions are so practical and tactical -- and where the guest is given an opportunity to share stories, insights, but also training. And that is exactly what I tried to do during the conversation with Stephen. My hope is the business owners listening to Onward Nation will not just take notes on what they learn (although that is important) but that they take action. Most critically...don't be afraid, identify your core strengths and use them, and keep asking questions. Ultimately, you will be successful if you follow that path. -- Albrecht Behmel, episode 12.
