On today's podcast, I'm thrilled to interview Sarah Peck about a swim adventure that provided hundreds with drinking water, how to navigate the achievement dance, and why understanding what you're feeling could be the key to eating well. "Deciding is powerful. It is terrifying. It is beautiful. Kill something today. Cut it out. Drop it. Remove it. Make clarity in choosing, by saying No to the part you don’t want. Say Yes to the things you want to keep. Do something. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin now.”
On today's podcast, I'm honored to interview Kamal Ravikant. He's the author of two awesome books - Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It and Live Your Truth. What's awesome about Kamal's writing is that he's vulnerable and authentic enough to share some really raw and profound truths that I think lots of us need to hear. "We don't stumble accidentally into an amazing life. It takes a conscious commitment to figuring out what we stand for - finding our truth. It begins by looking inside ourselves, because when it rises from within, we have no choice but to express it, to live it. That is when magic happens."

For today's profile, we have another special episode of the podcast. I'm honored to introduce you to someone who's been a mentor to me for more than a decade. More than anything, he taught me how to consistently study and apply leadership principles to my own life. Today, Ron Kitchens is the CEO of Southwest Michigan First, a team regularly recognized for their excellence in the workplace. In this in-depth interview, Ron shares his personal leadership philosophy and the unique ways he applies it to the workplace. From rugby scrums to planned cheating, there are plenty of useful surprises that you can apply to your own organization.
Today, I'm honored to introduce you to the man known only as Norcross. We met in 2010 when my online business was a mess and I needed serious help. A mutual friend connected us, and it was all sorted out over a weekend. Only later did I realize how fortunate I was. In online circles, Norcross is regarded as one of the best and the brightest, particularly when it comes to WordPress. Nearly daily, he fields tweeted questions from around the globe, suggesting fixes, plugins, or technical particulars. If Gary V says we should seek to be useful, he could write a case study on Norcross. For those of us looking to sort out the new world of work, Norcross shows one path to success. Be exceedingly competent in your craft and relentlessly helpful to your network. On this Labor Day, I wanted to share this special profile.
I discovered minimalism by accident when I figured out that traveling is tons more fun with just a backpack. Then my husband and I realized the same principle applies to our "regular" life as well, so when we moved recently, we brought less than half of our stuff. One of our guiding lights in this process has been Joshua Becker. We were fortunate enough to meet Joshua at SXSW this year and visit again on our recent trip to Portland. I've been inspired by how he's united his family in escaping the typical consumer treadmill. But I was astounded to learn that he's built his platform and written a best-selling book - all while serving his community as a full-time pastor. Today, I'm thrilled to share his powerful insights and wisdom.
Often, we assume that the best online marketers are young. I'm delighted to share this week's profile because Sue Wallace shows us why that stereotype is dead wrong. I've known Sue for over a decade, and our conversations are always peppered with the new skills and technologies she's learning. It's been a joy to watch her enjoy year after year of success by consistently applying new ideas to her business. In this interview, Sue takes us back to the mindset and priorities that provide her foundation, and how she continues to add new layers in building her business and her life.
Today, I'm delighted to share another special habit profile and interview. It's not often we get to talk to entrepreneurs while they're in startup mode, but Billy Murphy is taking us inside his life and his mind. In particular, Billy has a unique way of explaining why getting a job is very risky and starting a business may not be. We'll explore why he feels that way, what a typical day looks like, and what he's working on next.
Today, I'm excited to share a special habit profile and interview with Mike Hrostoski. On June 4, 2011, Mike's life changed dramatically with the loss of his mother and the discovery of a new tribe. Over the last two years, he has transformed from a frustrated Fortune 50 executive to someone that lives exactly as he would if he only had 30 days left. Even though Mike is a men's coach and focused on being location independent, he shares several principles that can we can all apply to live better.
