    Successful People Live in Truths - Bob Burg

    Successful People Live in Truths - Bob Burg

    Co-Author of The Go-Giver, Bob Burg, shares his insights as to why you should think about giving more than getting. We discuss topics like being resistant to change, pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone, and the importance of providing immense value to everyone you deal with. His book has forever changed how I think about business, and my hope is that many of you will benefit from the concepts in his book and podcast!

    Social Capital: The Power of Connection - Vedran Rasic (Lead Delta)

    Social Capital: The Power of Connection - Vedran Rasic (Lead Delta)

    I've been looking forward to chatting with Ved for such a long time. He's developed one of my favorite SAAS tools as of late, which is Lead Delta, a CRM for LinkedIn. Despite being on it for 15 years, I've only recently started really digging into it. Our conversation is equal parts insightful and juvenile. We talk entirely too long about Arnold Schwarzenegger, and not long enough about why Ved is so scared of hosting a new podcast with me. Enjoy!

You Must Believe in Failure

This guy has the right idea. Most highly successful people have failed more than less successful people. In this podcast Ben and his guests let you know that you should embrace and learn from your failures.

Great Variety of Topics

I love that there are so many different viewpoints and topics covered each episode. There’s definitely something for everyone. It’s been a really helpful reminder to not shy away from failure, but to use those experience to learn and grow. Fear of failure is something that I let hold me back a lot and this podcast is helping my work on that.
