Over the past 10 years, Adam Hergenrother has bootstrapped his way to a billion dollar organization. He's had what others call success... but he found himself asking, "Is this all there is?"
This show is for the leaders and high achievers who have reached success on the outside and still feel like something is missing in their life. We're going to go deep. We're going to dig into the tough questions about life and business and leadership. You're going to learn how to get and give anything you want in life by mastering your inner world first. After all, business is nothing but a conduit for your personal growth. Need nothing. Enjoy everything!
This is Business Meets Spirituality, hosted by Adam Hergenrother.
The One Characteristic Leaders Need Today
This week, Hallie updates us on how she’s faring after a week-and-a-half of no caffeine — and I finally learn the difference between an iced coffee and cold brew! We then talk about one of the most important characteristics a conscious leader can have, and how embracing it can bring more clarity and less attachment to everything you do. We discuss how being able to separate your role (as a business owner, a parent, a coach, etc.) from your identity is essential to being a better leader and living a more fulfilling life, both in your personal world and professional world.
BONUS - Everything Matters, Just Not Equally
Our future market is currently murky and unpredictable. As leaders, we need to be prepared for anything, which is why we wanted to share this bonus episode with my biggest tip on how to do so. In this episode, Hallie and I discuss what I call the EXTREME Pareto Principle and how you can apply it to your business to insure success, even in the face of uncertainty.

What Does Fulfillment Really Mean?
On the outside, fulfillment can look like a certain house, location, amount in your bank account, or even an aspect of your physical appearance. It can be the right car, social group, or career status. However, true fulfillment comes from an inner joy and living a life that is authentically aligned with your honesty. This week, Hallie and I first talk about why maximizing your physical experience is great, but there has to be an inner knowing of why you are doing that, or else it will be a never-ending fleeting goal. We talk about how to know what your true fulfillment looks and feels like, what to do if you feel like you are on the wrong path, and why so many people are starting to wake up now and realize the importance of TRUE fulfillment. https://adamhergenrother.com/154-what-does-fulfillment-really-mean/ (See full show notes.)
Money, Fame, Power, or Pleasure? What Is Your Idol?
Do you have idols? We're not talking celebrities or mentors - we're talking things you idolize in such a way they influence your decision making. This week, Hallie and I draw our inspiration from New York Times Bestseller, Social Scientist, and Speaker, Arthur Brooks, by talking about the four main idols that drive us subconsciously: money, fame, power, and pleasure. This is a great exercise you can do with your team, your partner, and most importantly — yourself, to give you a better picture of what drives you and guides you to make certain choices. I run through the four idols with Hallie and she talks about her relationship with each one, along with different examples of how idols show up differently in each individual. https://adamhergenrother.com/153-money-fame-power-or-pleasure-what-is-your-idol%EF%BF%BC/ (See full show notes.)
How To Be More Spiritual and Do Techniques Matter?
We tackle some big questions this week, as Hallie and I explore how we can be more spiritual, and what techniques can get us there. First, we define spirituality and lay the foundation for why embracing spirituality is really about seeking wellness in ourselves first, before we bring it out into the world. Then, Hallie and I talk about our own spiritual practices and what works for us to get past the mind and into our higher consciousness. It’s an enlightening episode; get ready to dive in! https://adamhergenrother.com/152-how-to-be-more-spiritual-and-do-techniques-matter/ (See full show notes.)
What’s the Difference Between an Entrepreneur and an Intrapreneur?
Hallie and I jump into a fun conversation this week as we explore the concept of intrapreneurship versus entrepreneurship! We define each of them and what makes them different, and the personality traits that tend to go along with each label. Hallie talks about how she discovered she was an intrapreneur, and we provide some ways that entrepreneurs can feel a little less lonely and isolated. We also provide some practical ways to see which one is in alignment with you, so you can best thrive along your journey.

I highly recommend!
New perspectives to business and spirituality are shared in the podcast, amazing opportunity to question your reality and find new, more fulfilling answers. I highly recommend!
Each time I listen I find myself rethinking previously held beliefs. I am then left with a push to reframe my perspective on things related to my personal (and business) growth. This podcast does not serve to reinforce your already existing beliefs about personal growth. It inspires you to discover new paths and perspectives to live out the life you have with meaning and impact.
Acceptance Insight Accountability
Adam and his guests bring insight into the areas of my life that are really important to me. Business, personal growth, the opportunity to positively impact others, parenting, relationships. It’s funny how they are all not that different! Adam brings it and explains it in a way that connects the dots. Great podcast show!!
