    OM100: Celebrating 100 Shows with Bob Burg

    OM100: Celebrating 100 Shows with Bob Burg

    ABOUT OUR SHOW Mastery Unleashed (formerly Overcoming Mediocrity) is a podcast for success-driven women who want to empower their thoughts, design their dream businesses, and build beautiful lives that are aligned with their destinies—hosted by Bestselling Author and Business Strategist Christie Ruffino.
    Each episode features today’s top influencers and entrepreneurs on the rise as they share empowering stories and ninja tips meant to become the FUEL that will ignite a positive change in YOUR life and the lives of others.
     
    ABOUT TODAY’S SHOW On today’s milestone show, Christie celebrates episode #100 with sought-after speaker, national bestselling author, and friend Bob Burg. Together they dive into an engaging conversation on a wide range of topics, including leadership, networking, authenticity, and the importance of stories in business.
     
    ABOUT BOB Bob Burg shares how a subtle shift in focus is not only a more uplifting and fulfilling way of conducting business but the most financially profitable way, as well. For 30 years, he’s helped companies, sales leaders, and their teams to more effectively communicate their value, sell at higher prices with less resistance, and grow their businesses based on Endless Referrals.
    Bob has regularly addressed audiences ranging in size from 50 to 16,000 — sharing the platform with notables, including today’s top thought leaders, broadcast personalities, Olympic athletes, and political leaders, including a former United States President.
    Although for years, he was best known for his book Endless Referrals, it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann), that captured the imagination of his readers.
    The Go-Giver, a Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek Bestseller, has sold over a million copies. Since its release, it has consistently stayed in the Top 25 on Porchlight’s (formerly 800-CEO-READ) Business Book Bestsellers List. The book has been translated into 30 languages. It was rated #10 on Inc. Magazine’s list of the Most Motivational Books Ever Written and was on HubSpot’s 20 Most Highly Rated Sales Books of All Time.
    Bob is an advocate, supporter, and defender of the Free Enterprise system, believing that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people they serve.
    He is also an unapologetic animal fanatic and served on the Board of Directors of Furry Friends Adoption and Clinic in his town of Jupiter, Florida.

    ABOUT OUR SHOW Mastery Unleashed (formerly Overcoming Mediocrity) is a podcast for success-driven women who want to empower their thoughts, design their dream businesses, and build beautiful lives that are aligned with their destinies—hosted by Bestselling Author and Business Strategist Christie Ruffino.

    ABOUT OUR HOST I am Christie Ruffino, and I am addicted to helping women step into the power of their story in business so they can help more people and make more money.
    Because I know what it feels like to be weighed down by challenges that seemed impossible to overcome, yet I did. Instead of saying, “why me”, I said, “what’s next” and allowed my mess to guide me into discovering my true life’s purpose.
    I also discovered how I could make an even bigger impact in the world by sharing that journey and wisdom with others to equip them to become overcomers as well.
    So, they can rise and thrive!
    From a broke single mom to a top-rated podcast host, Best-Selling Author with 15 books, and Profitize Your Purpose™ Coach, I guide entrepreneurs through my process to harness the power of story, systems, and community to build a more dynamic brand, attract more clients, and make more money.
    I CAN HELP YOU TOO!!!
