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: For more info on our guest go to:

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:
