    #019: Designing a Life You Love with Jeff Lovell

    However clear or vague it may be, we all have an idea of what our ideal life looks like. But a dream is just a dream without action. This week on System & Soul, expert guide and coach, Jeff Lovell, joins Benj and Chris to discuss how he helps entrepreneurs and business leaders embrace authentic living.

    The three ideas Jeff bring to this conversation are how to help people answer the “what’s next” question, how to avoid climbing higher without going deeper, and the difference between pursuing information vs. transformation.

    #014: What Got You Here Won't Get You There with Jeremy Miner

    Growing businesses are always adapting because great business leaders know that what might have worked for them up to this point probably won’t get them to the next level of business. This week on System & Soul, we invite sales guru Jeremy Miner, Founder and Chairman of 7th Level Communications, to talk about bringing in the right people and systems to prevent your business from plateauing, the importance of utilizing and expanding your business through social media, and expanding the infrastructure needed as your business grows.

    Jeremy provides keen insight into the evolution of sales strategies and how the best form of sales depends on intentional dialogue between the sales staff and the customer. And, he shares about his soon-to-release book The New Model: Selling to an Unsellable Generation. To learn more about Jeremy and honing your team’s sales skills, check out SalesRevolution.Pro for access to their Facebook Group and a free tool!

    Start your day with clarity! As leaders, we have countless things on our mind: things we need to do, things we’re not doing, problems we need to solve, new exciting ideas––all jotted down in that worn out mental notebook we keep in our heads.

    But, sometimes leaders and entrepreneurs simply need to step away from the mental clutter––sometimes we don’t need the notebook, we just need a sticky note––a simple reminder along the way to help us gain clarity and control of our business.

    That’s why we created a new FREE resource called The 261. As you may know, there are 261 work days in the calendar year. So, we have mapped out the entire year with daily micro thoughts and micro actions––sticky notes––to help keep the ball moving forward in your personal life as a leader and for the sake of your business.

    If you want to start your day with clarity and receive a short, helpful thought to jumpstart your leadership, please go to The261.com and sign up!
