How to Take the Lead and Play Bigger with Liz Wiseman
When you think about your current and prior work performance, would you consider yourself to be a key player in the organization? If you’re working for yourself in a startup and you’re the only player, ask yourself the question this way, would you hire someone with your same work ethic? In today’s episode, I am bringing on Liz Wiseman. Liz is the CEO of the Wiseman Group and the best-selling author of multiple books, including the book we’ll talk about in this episode titled Impact Players. She was formally an Executive at Oracle Corporation and the Vice President at Oracle University. She’s easily one of the most accomplished business professionals I’ve ever talked to. In our conversation, Liz explains how each of us can become an Impact Player, which will help us to stand out in our line of work, and it will also benefit the organization that we’re part of, even if it’s our own. Here is my conversation with the extremely accomplished, Liz Wiseman!

Making the Most of Every Minute in a Day with Tim Timberlake
If I were to ask you about how you spend and steward your day, would you say that you’re making the most of every minute of it? Most of us would admit to not spending every minute of our day the way we should. I’ve often been guilty of spending many hours of my day in wrong mindsets and being wasteful with the time I have, and I know I’m not alone. Today I am bringing on my pastor, Tim Timberlake. Tim is the lead pastor of Celebration Church in Jacksonville, Florida, and is the author of the book title, The Power of 1440: Making the Most of Every Minute in a Day. In this episode, Tim explains how we can begin changing our perspective of the value of every minute and how we can live more in the present, which is something all entrepreneurs need to hear. Here is my profound conversation with Pastor Tim Timberlake!
Transform Your Businesses Pains Into Gains with Pete Mohr
In this episode, Pete Mohr, owner of Simplifying Entrepreneurship and creator of the Simplifying Entrepreneurship podcast, outlines what it means to have a turnkey business. Running a business shouldn't be a mystery, and Pete outlines his story of what it was like to be overworked and overwhelmed before putting in the frameworks that enabled him to work more on his business than in it. He shares a simple tool called "The Pain and the Gain" that you'll be able to use to understand better what it will mean for you if you put the systems in place that will allow you to work more on your business instead of in it.
How to Build Habit-Forming Products with Nir Eyal
Is the product or service that you offer habit-forming? When people use what your company offers, do they get hooked and continuously come back for more? If this isn’t something you’ve thought about, you may be missing out on a huge opportunity to earn more business.

Nir is the author of multiple bestselling books, including Indistractable (which we talked about back on episode 52 and is one of my all-time favorite books). Today we will be talking about today, titled ‘Hooked: How to Build Habit-Forming Products.
