    13. The Rise and Fall and Domination of Taylor Swift

    13. The Rise and Fall and Domination of Taylor Swift

    Let's just get it out up front: I am a Swiftie through and through. We're talking songs-stuck-in-my-head-when-I-can't-sleep, saw-the-concert-documentary-3-times, drove-to-San-Diego-for-a-Taylor-dance-party Swiftie. 
     
    And while you may argue with me if you want about the appropriateness of my obsession at my age, you cannot argue with the fact that TS is one of the great entrepreneurs of all time. 
     
    Don't believe me? Listen to this and then tell me I'm wrong.

    In this episode, we get into breaking generational cycles, holding onto things for 47 years, living up to parents' expectations, talking to your kids about taking medication and so much more.

    10. From $20K in Debt to a $10 Million Business with John Disselkamp

    How many people do you know who, while working in banking, thought, "You know, I'd rather be a janitor"?
    Well, I know one and he's my guest in this episode.
    John Disselkamp found that suit he had to wear just a bit too tight so left it to literally push a broom.
    That broom turned into a $10 million a year company with over 300 employees.
    So how did he do it and what were his failures along the way? More importantly, what constitutes a failure—is it working in a job that doesn't fulfill you or making money? And how can you have both?
    We got into all that and more in this episode.

    9. How Arianna Huffington Got Rejected 37 Times (Solo Episode)

    To most people, it looked like Arianna Huffington went from political pundit to publishing with ease, allegedly pocketing a cool $100 million when her eponymous site The Huffington Post sold. But did you know she was rejected 37 times when she was trying to sell her second book? Or that when she ran for governor, she received less than 1% of the votes? In this episode, I break down Huffington's highs, lows, successes and of course failures.
