Many of us receive the call to leadership at some point in our lives. It can happen when we are young, and it can happen later. Sometimes it happens more than once. Regardless of its timing, saying yes to that call fundamentally changes us and the direction of our lives. The Play Your Position Podcast explores what happens when we answer the call -- and why it matters.

    John Mitchell on the $5 Million, 12 Minute a Day Leadership Secret

    John Mitchell on the $5 Million, 12 Minute a Day Leadership Secret

    John Mitchell teaches the “SCIENCE of SUCCESS" at the University of Texas, along with a 12 minute a day technique that typically doubles an entrepreneur’s income within a year. When John turned 50, he wasn’t as successful as he thought he should be. Then it came to him: find the top book in the world on SUCCESS and apply that book literally Word for Word to his life. That book is Think and Grow Rich, which has been read by over 100 million people. Once he did that, everything changed.
    John has since gone on to develop his 12 minute a day technique which caused his income to start doubling. Within four years he was netting MID SEVEN FIGURES figures a year. Time Magazine even did a cover story on the science behind his 12 minute day technique.
    John now teaches his methodology with the former Chancellor and President at the University of Texas where his technique is recognized as the “Top Application in the World” of the top book in the world on SUCCESS.

    Scott Drake on How Leaders Hire and Lead with Compassion

    The war for talent is perhaps as fierce as it has ever been. Consequently, business leaders across the board are putting more energy into attracting and then hiring the best people for the right roles.
    It's no easy feat.
    Today's guest Scott Drake helps leaders make great decisions about who they onboard along with how to guide high potentials through the leadership pipeline. Scott is a sought-after consultant and trainer who made every mistake when rising through the leadership ranks. After seeing emerging leaders on his teams repeating the same mistakes, he set out to find a simpler and faster way to grow leaders. When he couldn’t find a shortcut, he invented one. His 25-year career includes stops at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington and start-ups in Silicon Valley.
    A few of the questions Scott addresses include:
    How can someone accelerate their growth from a role player to a leader?
    Why is it essential for leaders to “lose the competency war?”
    How can leaders improve their hiring of other leaders?
    Enjoy!

    In today's episode, you will hear Dave “Laundromat Millionaire” Menz share his leadership journey from being your everyday average high school student to becoming a millionaire business owner in an industry with a not so clean reputation. Arguably one of the less "sexy" kinds of businesses to own, laundromats have nonetheless been very good to Dave. His story showcases why sometimes going against the popular grain grants you the biggest harvest.

    Dave is a laundromat industry veteran and the owner of the Queen City Laundry Chain of Laundromats in Cincinnati Ohio. His inspirational journey from purchasing a struggling laundromat to becoming a millionaire has inspired many entrepreneurs to try and overcome their own obstacles while building wealth.
