    Tom Henschel—Establishing Your Executive Presence

    You may take pride in wearing your heart on your sleeve when interacting with your team, feeling it comes across as transparent and honest. The trouble is even though you may have the best intentions, your impact could be leaving team members feeling judged or dismissed. And, even more troubling, it could be holding you and your company back! Today we talk with Tom Henschel, executive coaching expert and host of The Look & Sound of Leadership Podcast, all about how to navigate the gap between intention and impact and how you can strengthen what Tom refers to as your "executive presence."

    How to Scale as a Solopreneur

    Solopreneur- we applaud you. You’ve worked hard, started a business, and grown it to where it is today. Now you’re ready to take the next step! ... Except you’re stuck. And because you alone continue to act as the “secret sauce” powering everything inside your business, you never see the light of day. To take the next step in scaling your business and avoiding burnout, you must first figure out how to scale yourself!
     
    Today's guest, Katherine Kelly of KatherineKellyDesign.com, knows this all too well. Katherine is the "secret sauce" powering her very successful stationary business but is finding it harder and harder to grow when she's stuck doing everything herself. Donald Miller coaches Katherine (and you!) how to give up the need to control all aspects of the business, develop ways to automate, and staff her liabilities to finally gain back the freedom needed to continue dreaming and growing.
     
    Order and experience Katherine's amazing stationary at KatherineKellyDesign.com. Follow her on social @KatheringKellyDesign.

The best bang for your buck

If you have only 30 minutes a day, this is the podcast you must listen to. Donald is a phenomenal interviewer, and leaves out the filler words that leaves you scrambling to understand what is being taught. He is concise and drives home necessary points. Further, I appreciate how his language is clean, he acts professional, and yet still very real. I have completely changed my business model due to his teachings. Thank you Donald Miller!!

Arlie K ,

It’s obvious Donald puts extraordinary effort in covering salient topics and finding guests that are authentic and truly care about being a positive force in this world - the insights they bring to bear are always mind-blowing! Truly cannot recommend Business Made Simple enough.
