But My Business Is Different
We often brainwash ourselves into thinking “our business is different” or “our industry is different.” Or that political campaigning must be different than entrepreneurship. This misconception couldn't be further from the truth. The fundamentals are fundamental in every industry and when you can create a system, you bring calm to chaos and clarity to confusion. Whether you’re a politician or entrepreneur, you’re in the same business. You’re first and foremost in the relationship business, then the business of whatever field you work in. A campaign, whether it’s a political campaign, a crowdfunding campaign or a business-development campaign is essentially a system with a clearly defined outcome, starting point and finish line. In this episode we break it all down with guest expert Paul Weaver, who is a career educator (college professor) and is running a campaign for local office in his town.  NOTE: We do NOT discuss politics, merely the parallels between an election campaign and new business development. You'll IMMEDIATELY hear about numerous opportunities and strategies you previously hadn't considered.   For more information go to: http://www.CoachBru.com For more info on our guest go to: http://www.ElectPaulWeaver.com

In 19 seasons at the helm of the Cabrini men’s lacrosse program, Colfer has mentored the Cavaliers to 19 consecutive conference championships and 18 straight appearances in the NCAA Tournament. Colfer is a 13-time Coach of the Year and owns a commanding 284-72 career record. His .798 winning percentage ranks among the top 10 coaches of all-time in Divisions I, II and III.  In 2019, Colfer led the program to the University's first NCAA championship with a 16-12 victory over Amherst College.  And in the process they closed the season on a 15-game win streak, finishing the season 22-2, one win shy of the NCAA record for wins in a season. We discuss this season the media called a "magical run" (which I predicted before the season even started) as well as: Building a championship culture The power of hope Why you should root for your competition Empowering your staff and team leadership The importance of continuity Plus a whole lot more.

Hate Me Now, Love Me Later: Interview w/ Coach Jason Brown of Last Chance U
An in depth interview with perhaps the most controversial and widely misunderstood coach in America, Jason Brown. Jason is the star of the Netflix documentary series Last Chance U. Seasons #3 and #4 feature Jason and his team at Independence Community College. We dive into how he is such a lightning rod and polarizing public figure, as well as WHY he's misunderstood. The conversation also turns to authenticity in a world of fakes as well as the fact that there's very little "reality" in reality TV. We also discuss Jason's terrific new book Hate Me Now, Love Me Later as well as his time at Indy and the experience of being followed around by television cameras 24-7. There are a lot of people I meet who I recommend write a book, most don't. Jason is one of the few who not only took the advice but also did it in record time.  You get to see a VERY different side of the man in his book, I recommend you get yourself a copy here:  www.TheRealCoachJB.com

The Things We Think & Do Not Say: Interview w/ Val Gui founder of ProofFactor.com
A discussion on depression in entrepreneurship.  The interview is based on his groundbreaking article  #HustleHarder - A Study of Mental Health in the Entrepreneurship Community. Val is saying what millions of entrepreneurs are feeling but believe it's taboo to talk about. We also expose the fraudulent online goo-roos who promote "Hustle Porn”. Which is using the power of social media to convince others to take risks not right for them, by pushing a lifestyle that isn’t just unreasonable, but downright dangerous for many people. Note: I use Proof Factor on my website. I'm not an affiliate, I receive no compensation for promoting it. I simply do so because it's a great resource and tool that you can benefit from as I am.  Guest expert: Val Gui, founder of  https://prooffactor.com/  The article:  https://prooffactor.com/blog/31-of-entrepreneurs-fear-theyll-go-out-of-business/

Don't Confuse Growth With Results
The worst thing you can do is expect results. The best thing you can do is just put in the work, one step at a time based on a system with a track record of success. When you expect results to occur and they don’t magically appear your mind assumes nothing is happening. In reality a lot is actually happening, you just don’t see it. This episode shows you that when it looks like nothing is happening is precisely when the most growth is actually taking place.
