One of the benefits of having a podcast is the ability to connect with folks you really want to learn from and have conversations with
This episode of the Hardwired for Growth 2.0 podcast is a great example
I read the book the Go-Giver on a Saturday and reached out to the author Bob Burg later that night and within in 3 weeks he was a guest on the podcast
I wanted to have Bob on to talk specifically of how we as solo business owners could approach and leverage the "Five Laws of Stratospheric Success”:
1️⃣ The Law of Value: Success is not about the profits we make, but the value we provide to others.
2️⃣ The Law of Compensation: Our income is determined by how many people we serve and how well we serve them.
3️⃣ The Law of Influence: Our influence grows as we prioritize others' interests above our own.
4️⃣ The Law of Authenticity: Authenticity is the most valuable gift we have to offer.
5️⃣ The Law of Receptivity: To effectively give, one must be open to receiving.
If you read the book, you will love this interview and if you are unfamiliar with Bob's work this will be a great intro
Give it a listen and let me know what you think!

Growth Lessons with the Author of Teenage Wastebrand- Evelyn Starr
I am your host, Brett Trainor. Today, I welcome our guest, Evelyn J. Starr. She is an author, and I recently came across her insightful book called Teenage Waste Brand: How Your Brand Can Stop Struggling and Start Scaling.
I would also like to mention that she has a fantastic newsletter on this topic which I highly encourage everyone to check out. As we have this conversation, I'm eager to explore more about who she collaborates with today, the types of brands she is helping to shape, and the strategies she is currently advocating. In light of Evelyn's initial comments, it seems she wants to reassure our listeners not to let the challenges of branding send them into panic mode.
In essence, she appears to emphasize that success in a service business largely comes down to earning the trust of your customer base.
Entertaining, insightful, and actionable! 🔥
Whether you’re well established as an entrepreneur, or just getting started carving out a profitable niche that’s ready to grow, this is a must-listen podcast for you! Brett does an incredible job leading conversations that cover a huge breadth of topics related to the ins and outs of building a thriving business (and life!) you can be proud of with leaders who’ve actually experienced success themselves.
