Redefining Entrepreneurial Grit with Ron Nussbaum
Today on the show I have Ron Nussbaum. Ron is the founder of BuilderComs which is a communication platform that is set to disrupt one of the biggest industries in the United States - the construction industry. We will talk about in this episode some of the biggest problems with communication. Sometimes up to a third of the money and time invested in a construction project can be wasted due to poor communication.
This is a massive problem and a massive opportunity and we are going to talk about Ron’s personal philosophy that has led him to this moment, how he sees himself in this big opportunity, and what purpose he serves moving forward. This is a great episode to explore what high-level leadership looks like and what is necessary to make big changes in the world.
In This Episode: It is not just the long-term vision. It is also the short term and what can happen. You just got to make it happen 90 days at a time.
You always have to be willing to change your perspective. Every time we summit something there is typically another mountain.
Too many people have that one defining moment and they rest their heads on that for the rest of their lives. If you are capable of one defining moment you are capable of a thousand. We need to continue to chase those and not just be fine with that one defining moment.

The Secret Drunk Driving of Entrepreneurs with Jeff Schiefelbein
Today on the show I have Jeff Schiefelbein. Jeff is a successful serial entrepreneur who has been running many different businesses and ventures for twenty years. Today we are going to dive into his story of how an unexpected dark moment became one of the most important in his life. This was when he was pulled over for a DUI.
We are going to talk about that turning point in his life and we are going to talk about a lot of the ways that many entrepreneurs and visionaries are drunk driving in their businesses right now, not necessarily literally drunk driving but are going through the same process that is equally as dangerous at the helm of their businesses. There is a ton of great information that Jeff is going to share whether you are just starting out as an entrepreneur or have been at this for many years.
In This Episode: People have become victims of their surroundings.
People are all driven by the same fundamentals of human nature and when they feel respected, seen, and heard you get a lot of really great things done together.
Recognize the blessing of life. Every single part of my life is a blessing and yours and you can completely change and see the world in a brighter light, more abundance, and less fear because you get to, you don’t have to.

Transform Your Communication with Kyle Gray on She's Busy AF Podcast
I have something a little bit different for you today. A few weeks back I was featured on the She’s Busy AF Podcast hosted by Lauren Loreto and it was an incredible experience. First of all, it was a huge honor to be the first male guest on a podcast for women business leaders by women business leaders.
It was an honor to be able to help with some of the key points that all entrepreneurs face in communicating their value and attracting their clients. This was an action packed episode so I wanted to share this interview with my listeners so you can get a little bit of a taste of what it is like when I am being interviewed.
In This Episode: One of the biggest differences and shifts you can make is moving from a passive voice to an active voice.
Changing your story and clarifying your story as a leader changes who you are, and how you show up in this world and creates a bigger context for the things that you want to do.
Being able to have a vision that lines up your team that you can communicate with your team is so essential.
