    Wynning Your Way (Season 2 Episode 19)

    Wynning Your Way (Season 2 Episode 19)

    Your current thinking around winning is messing you up.
    Chances are your definition of winning is influenced by others’ definitions. Maybe you picked up a piece from a leadership book, a section from corporate goals, maybe a smattering from a mentor or from playing a team sport. 
    How’s that working for you?
    I want to talk to you about the difference you can make in your life by redefining what it means to YOU to win at work and in your life. I’m not talking about winning at all costs and smashing unrealistic goals set by people with little skin in the game (or understanding of the game in some instances.) I’m talking about how you define what it’s like for you to feel like you are operating at your best, showing up as your best self in situations that matter to you, and feeling like you’re participating according to your own rules. I’m talking about Wynning Your Way. Listen to what it takes to Wyn Your Way and how you can define it and live it on the latest Champions of RISK episode. Season 2, Episode 19

    Mike and Gaby Grinberg - partners in business and life (Season 2, Episode 16)

    Mike and Gaby Grinberg - partners in business and life (Season 2, Episode 16)

    “The way we look at it is, when you have a business partner, your business partnership is built on trust. And if you can't trust your spouse, you got a whole different set of issues, right? It actually helps that you're never questioning the other person's motives – they are both automatically going in the same direction.” – Mike Grinberg on being in business with a spouse
    There are many reasons entrepreneurs start their businesses, including necessity. Mike and Gaby Israel Grinberg created Proofpoint Marketing, a remote people first business to business revenue marketing agency, out of necessity to generate income that also met specific family needs. Mike and Gaby share their personal journey that includes their now thriving daughter who was born four months prematurely. Hear how the partners in life became business partners, what works well working with a spouse, the surprising risk of being in business together, and how they’ve extended their family first value into their company culture on Champions of RISK

    How to Move from Striving to Thriving (Season 2, Episode 15)

    How to Move from Striving to Thriving (Season 2, Episode 15)

    “It felt like my whole life changed once I made the necessary shifts to get in thrive mode.” 

    Have you ever felt like you’re working hard but you’re not sure where it’s getting you?

    Do you wonder what you’re working towards? 

    I used to be the same way. I was striving and achieving, it’s just it was coming at a high cost to me and the people around me. 

    It took a lot of unwinding of old beliefs - like I had to work hard to get ahead – and really identifying what work and activities mattered…and which ones didn’t. 

    I’m not going to lie. I didn’t make it easy on myself. I took the long route, but now that I’m on the other side, I want to share ways you can move from striving to thriving at a much faster pace than I did. 

    Psst…it’s easier than I thought it would be.

    If you pride yourself on being a hard worker, but you’d like more ease in your life. If you want to feel more energized in your day instead of exhausted. Or, if you want or need a vision to work toward, then you’re going to love today’s podcast
