Building Business Relationships
When it comes to being successful in business and life, it's all about relationships.
Most elite leaders will tell you that developing a circle of trusted friends, colleagues, and partners is as important as any other task before them.
However, building business relationships does not come easy for many entrepreneurs and leaders. Isolation and loneliness is all too prevalent in entrepreneurship. Often there can be sadness behind that beaming, business-facing smile.
Building business relationships isn't something that is really taught in business school. But it's taught in this podcast!
Join Michael and Jim as they delve into this most important topic and as they explain the differences and similarities between business relationships and personal friendships.
If you're a leader, don't miss this extraordinarily valuable episode.
When There Are Way More Tasks Than Time
Have you ever started off a day or week by saying to yourself, "There is no way we're going to get everything done that we need to do?"
If you're like most business owners, this experience occurs with too much frequency, and over time can cause great harm to your health and well being.
It brings this crushing feeling where the walls are coming closer and closer to you on all sides.
When you're a leader or entrepreneur, this is exasperated further as your panicked face starts to spread to everyone in your organization.
The worst part? You're probably the root cause of why this is happening. The good news is it's totally fixable.
Join Michael and Jim as they discuss this important topic and provide you with the most calming remedy.
Outlasting The Competition
Can you imagine what it would be like if you had no competition in your business? None at all.
Theoretically, our company's offerings would be in high demand and we could negotiate in our favor with all of the leverage.
The phones would be ringing...the cash registers would be singing...at least for a while.
That's because competition is actually a leadership friend. One that makes us stronger. As leaders, competition is good for us. It's good for our teams. It's good for our customers.
And competition isn't just about competitors. It's so much more!
Join Michael & Jim as they delve into a critical strategy for winning in business, leadership and life.
How To Win The Game Of Entrepreneurship
Many people decide to start a business with the idea that it's going to change their lives in so many marvelous ways.
It will change your life alright. They got that part spot on.
The truth is this is a high risk journey...being a business owner. That pathway can lead to financial ruin, a loss of friends and a break-up of a family. You need to know this heading down this road.
Which is why being a successful business owner entails so much more than merely growing your revenues.
Join Michael and Jim as they discuss how to win in all aspects of the game of entrepreneurship.

TAG 153 - Leading When Things Are Out Of Your Control
There are few things leaders and entrepreneurs enjoy more than being in control.
The truth is we never really are in control. It's one of the great leadership delusions.
There are so many things well, well beyond our scope of control...such as rain falling, earth shaking, waves crashing and most of the world's geopolitics that affect even the smallest of businesses. Then there are health crises.
All out of our control!
If we accept the true reality that ultimately we are not in control then as leaders it now becomes our responsibility to learn how to lead when things are out of our control.
Can we even do this? Join Michael and Jim as they explain how.
Great work, looking forward to more!
