MAKE THE DIFFERENCE YOU WERE BORN TO MAKE

The Business of Thought Leadership podcast is about building your thought leadership around your expertise, your brand and your name. To become well known and highly regarded in the market place for the results you are able to produce for your clients.

Our guests are top thought leaders who have done it. They’ve become widely known for their expertise and results they’re able to deliver for their clients. They all love what they do and get paid very well for doing it.

You’ll meet entrepreneurs that have leveraged thought leadership in driving business revenue, coaches that were unknown and barely making ends who later became celebrities and took their income into the 7 figures, consultants that transformed into best-selling authors and built multi-million dollar firms and senior executives who followed their passion, left their day jobs and are changing the world.

We’ve had interviews with notables such as New Times Best-Selling Author Seth Godin, success and investment coaching icon, Raymond Aaron, a personal coach to billionaires, Alex Charfen & Tony Robbins’ Director of Coaching, Marc Von Musser.

Steve Jobs once said “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.”

Are you crazy enough to join us in making the difference you were born to make. We want you to 10x your impact, your income and your influence every 12 months.

Financially successful people with purpose and passion are changing the world and we want to inspire you to be one of them.

    EP364: Peter Ratnikov - Crypto Consultant & Documentary Filmmaker

    "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world — no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” - Thomas Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States
    The federal reserve has an interesting backstory and it’s telling of the current state of the economy. The economic climate is grim but promising at the same time, with an old financial system seemingly running itself into the ground while a new, promising system surges forward. It’s all happening so fast now that educating ourselves is critical to our future and even our individual freedoms. Today’s guest, Peter Ratnikov, is answering the call with a new documentary called Crypto Life.TO. Peter has seen both sides of the financial fence. He was earning six figures while still in high school. He was later introduced to blockchain technology and has since become an expert, mentoring others on how to navigate this new technology.
     
    Expert action steps:
    Go watch a one-hour documentary that’s been made to explain blockchain step-by-step. Take action and use blockchain technology and currency. Implement cryptocurrency into your business.  
    Peter is based out of Toronto. You can learn more about him on his website where you can connect with him directly or be linked to one of his social profiles.

    EP362 - The Hon. Tony Clement: Freedom Principles - From Politics To Business

    EP362 - The Hon. Tony Clement: Freedom Principles - From Politics To Business

    “We have to be compassionate as conservatives. We have to show that we care what people are going through.”
     
    In business, your message needs to be aimed at people who have an acute problem that needs to be solved. This same principle applies to politics and there are powerful examples of this from the last several decades. The Honourable Tony Clement came into politics in his mid-teens, when free choice and free markets were being threatened by the spread of communism, before the fall of the Soviet Union. As a member of the conservative party and minister of health and industry, Tony has always worked to protect individual freedom from big government. Tony believes that big government is now on the rise again.
     
    Expert action steps:
    Never give up. It’s about how you step up and face adversity. Hope is not a strategy. When you have goals in mind, you have to know how you’re going to get things done. Have grace in your life. Be understanding. Be compassionate. Power is good but love and compassion are even more important. Go online and register as a conservative at conservative.ca.

    EP360: Don Bentley - New York Times Best Selling Author

    EP360: Don Bentley - New York Times Best Selling Author

    “You can’t do it alone but you gotta do it by yourself.”
    At the end of the day, you’re the one who takes each gruelling step toward your goals. But you’ll get there faster the more you learn from mentors, coaches, your competition and other relevant influences in your personal and business life.
    Don Bradley is an author who’s partly inspired by his 10 years of service with the US Army, where he flew Apache helicopters and was deployed to Afghanistan as an air troop commander. Later he became a special agent in an FBI swat team. Along the way, he was always writing, pushing himself past his limits and doubts and facing rejection when it came. Through the process, he met some invaluable people who encouraged him to keep going and showed him the way. All he had to do was keep going. Don has written two books as part of the Tom Clancy, ‘Jack Ryan Junior Novel series, Target Acquired and Zero Hour and has started his own thriller series, Matt Drake, including, Without Sanction, Outside Man and Hostile Intent, to be released on May 3rd.
     
    Expert action steps:
    Know what you’re selling and whom you’re selling to. If you don’t know what your audience expects, it’s going to be hard for you to craft a product that they want to buy. Get better at your craft. Push your boundaries. Dissect what your competition is doing well and improve on it. Show up every day and do the work it takes to succeed.
