    In this week's edition of the AmiSights Podcast, we talk to health and performance coach Danny Martoe, owner of Agent of Change, which empowers individuals and organizations to reach new heights of personal and professional success. He explains how changing your health habits can change your business.“What happens with a lot of successful men and women and professionals is they tend to put the business before themselves, but then they realize that when they start putting themselves first, that they show up even better for their business – and that’s the aha moment,” he said.

    The main topics of today's episode will focus on how the former sports agent transitioned into life coaching and how specific life wake-up calls often prompt people to seek out a life coach. We'll also explore how accountability, self-awareness, and strategic planning are essential ingredients for sticking with a healthy life plan.

    The main topics of today's episode will be how transferring into an ESOP company has made all team members more committed and accountable, how having an in-house trainer and recruiter has helped the company deal with the accountant shortage, and how adopting open-book management has educated all team members on how they can make an impact on the company.

    In this week's edition of the AmiSights Podcast, we talk to Verne Harnish, owner and CEO of Scaling Up, a global executive education and coaching company with over 260 partners on six continents. Verne discusses the vital importance of field reporting and accounting in business operations.

    “We were given speech a 100,000 years ago. We were only given Excel spreadsheets 50 years ago. I think we're much more highly developed to feel and sense patterns and get a good gut feel for the business by speaking and hearing the data instead of staring at Excel spreadsheets.“

    168: From Aspiring to Inspiring: Unveiling Thought Leadership Secrets

    In this week's edition of the AmiSights Podcast, we talk to Peter Winick, founder and CEO of Thought Leadership Leverage, a company that helps thought leaders, authors, consultants, and speakers monetize and scale their content and products. Despite their backgrounds or professions, thought leaders all have several traits in common.  

    “The problem with a lot of thought leaders is that it's the curse of the expert. They're so good at what they do, and some of them are literally the best in the world, that they've lost the beginner's mindset in other things. So when you start to make changes and move the business in different directions, it's like, uh-oh, I might not be the greatest at that. Like no, you might not, but that's okay.”

    The main topics of today's episode will be how thought leadership is the most cost-effective way to elevate your brand and acquire new clients in different spaces. We will also discuss why setting a strategy in place is the top priority in developing a thought leadership plan. Peter will also share how building a strong referral network helps all facets of a business.

    167: Fortifying Finances: Strategies for Sustainable Business Expansion

    In this week's episode of the AmiSights Podcast, Ami talks with Pete Heald, CEO of Signature Analytics, and Jason Kruger, President and Founder of Signature Analytics, a firm specializing in outsourced CFO and business advisory services. They delve into why they started the business, emphasizing the crucial role of accounting and finance in driving value, and discuss the risks associated with relying on a single individual for accounting tasks.

    “What I saw back then, and continue to see now, is the need for these types of companies in the small mid-market – they deserve better than what they're getting,” Kruger said. “A lot of them are looking at accounting and finance as a necessary evil. And what we want to do is educate them and show them how accounting and finance can drive value to their business.”

    The main topics of today's episode will be how CEOs and leadership team members need to understand their financials and fundamentals, especially as they scale and grow. We will also discuss why it is critical to not have just one person in control of all of the financials. We will also talk about how, as a business owner, it is important to know every aspect of your business.

    In this week's edition of the AmiSights Podcast, we talk to Devin Gage, founder and CEO of Engage Personal Training. He explains how he knew he didn’t want a desk job but didn’t realize he could make fitness into a career.
    “I've become obsessed with business and understanding this game of business, and just this understanding that every one of these things has been done before. These problems have solutions and exist in the market, and I love thinking about it from a strategic lens of like, if this then that, and how does this puzzle all fit together? It just excites me."The main topics of today's episode will be how hiring his first employee motivated him to spend more time working on marketing his business. We will also talk about how entrepreneurs are often driven by insecurity and the desire to keep growing and prove something. Devin will also share his goal to increase his locations from seven to 100 in the next 10 years by centralizing systems and building a pipeline of fitness trainers.

So much insight from two incredibly reputable hosts

Fletcher Rille ,

Great entrepreneur content!

This podcast is a great resource for entrepreneurs to learn from CEOs who’ve already paved the way. Ami does a great job at creating and developing conversation that allows guests to open up, share and explain their stories. As an entrepreneur, I find it all very helpful and relevant. Some of it is clarity on things I already knew a little about, while other content is eye-opening. Personally, I love listening to everyone’s story and life perspectives after achieving so much, especially what motivated them before compared to now. Thanks, Ami! I appreciate your work!!
