I help entrepreneurs and business owners Make More Money… In Less Time… Doing What They Do Best… to create an abundant sustainable 4-day work week lifestyle so they can enjoy their family, friends and lives outside of work.

I’m committed to helping 4,444,444 people create their own 4-day work week lifestyle.
Regardless where you currently are in your journey (student, employee, side-hustler, freelancer, solopreneur, business owner, executive or CEO), this podcast will teach you how to get started.
077 - Play Your Way To a 4-Day Work Week with Jeff Harry
Stop taking work & life so seriously, and start having more fun. Jeff shares how to escape the limited fixed mindset and embrace a growth mindset, so you can embrace and capitalize on the opportunities around you.
Jeff Harry shows individuals and companies how to tap into their true selves, to feel their happiest and most fulfilled — all by playing.
Jeff has worked with Google, Microsoft, Southwest Airlines, Adobe, the NFL, Amazon, and Facebook, helping their staff to infuse more play into the day-to-day.
Jeff is an international speaker who has presented at conferences such as INBOUND, SXSW, and Australia’s Pausefest, showing audiences how major issues in the workplace can be solved using play.
Jeff was selected by Engagedly as one of the Top 100 HR Influencers of 2020 and one of the Top HR Influencers to Watch By BambooHR for his organizational development work around addressing toxicity in the workplace. His play work has been mostly recently been featured in the NY Times Times Article: How To Add More Play To Your Grown-Up Life - Even Now (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/14/smarter-living/adults-play-work-life-balance.html). His work has also been seen on AJ+, SoulPancake, the SF Chronicle, and CNN.
While we spend most of our time pretending to be important, serious grownups, it's when we let go of that facade and just play, that the real magic happens. Fully embracing your own nerdy genius — whatever that is — gives you the power to make a difference and change lives.
Jeff believes that we already have many of the answers we seek, and by simply unleashing our inner child, we can find our purpose and, in turn, help to create a better world.

076 - Why Sleep is THE Skill to Prioritize Now and in the Future with Mollie McGlocklin
Learn how to better manage 1/3 of your life (the time you sleep) to overcome burnout and create greater energy, focus, productivity, and results.
Mollie is the creator of Sleep Is A Skill, a company that optimizes how people sleep through a unique blend of technology, accountability, and behavioral change.
The company was born from “scratching her own itch” after a lifetime of poor sleep habits culminated into a mega-challenging bout of insomnia for months without end.
With a background in psychology & human behavior, she went down the rabbit hole to solve her own sleep disturbances without sleeping aids.
She became fascinated with chronobiology, and by extension, its practical applications to restore a state of homeostasis not only to her sleep but also to her life as a whole.
Knowing the difference between a life with sleep and without, she’s now dedicated her life to sharing the forgotten skill set of sleep.

074 - Half-Retire with Jim Muehlhausen
Discover how to break free from your business while keeping it running smoothly.
Jim and I discuss Half-Retirement, a process he teaches to help business owners find a middle ground between selling a business to completely retire and never retiring.
It's possible for business owners to delegate work they don't wish to do so they can focus on their "Picasso" work.
It's not quite an exit strategy, but it focuses on maximizing the business valuation to you and your lifestyle, rather than a random investor.
Like most entrepreneurs, Jim Muehlhausen has an eclectic background ranging from CPA, franchisee, attorney, business owner, consultant, franchisor, public speaker, university professor, and book author.
While still attending the Indiana University School of Law, he became the youngest franchisee in Meineke Discount Muffler history (1987-1991). After successfully selling that business, Jim founded an automotive aftermarket manufacturing concern. During his 9-year tenure with that business, the company achieved recognition from Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School and Inc. Magazine in the IC 100 Fastest-Growing Businesses.
About twenty years ago, he found his true passion, serving as a consultant, business coach, and advisor to hundreds of businesses. He has conducted 10,000+ one-on-one consulting sessions with business owners around the globe. He has written two well-regarded books, The 51 Fatal Business Errors and How to Avoid Them, and Business Models for Dummies, and has contributed to publications such as Inc., The Small Business Report, Entrepreneur, BusinessWeek, and various business journals.
Jim has now turned his attention to the problems facing aging business owners. By studying thousands of business owners, collecting their best practices, and augmenting them, Jim created the Half-Retire Blueprint. This step-by-step process helps business owners create a profitable alternative to selling their business via Half-Retirement. This trademarked system is outlined in Jim’s upcoming book Don’t Sell Your Business Half-Retire: A New Exit Strategy for Business Owners.

073 - What are you most grateful for in your life?
I hope you're enjoying the holiday season. 2020 has been a challenging year for many, but if we look around, we can often find something to be thankful for.
Gratitude creates Appreciation, which breeds Confidence and leads to Powerful Action. This starts a virtuous cycle that leads to having more things to be grateful for.
One of my mentors, Dan Sullivan, has an audio & book called "The Gratitude Principle" that teaches this beautifully. You can get it here if you like... https://private.strategiccoach.com/store/products/8
My intention is that you discover many new things to be grateful for, and you use that momentum to push you powerfully into the new year.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
072 - Are You Growing or Living the Same Life Every Year?
One of my favorite questions by the author, Dr. Wayne Dyer, was, “are you living a new life, a unique life every year or are you reliving the same life every year for 30 years?"
This question has constantly challenged me to grow and evolve so I can experience more of what life has to offer.
Sometimes our comfort and familiarity can lead us to become complacent with life.
If we want to truly experience all there is, or at least a bigger portion of what there is to experience on the planet in life, then it's going to involve creating free time.
It's going to involve doing something more than sitting at your desk.
It can be easy for us to get caught in the pattern of reliving the same life year after year, even if it's not what we most desire. I'll tell you a simple way you can start adding more variety, growth and excitement in your life.
