WARNING: This podcast is focused on helping people build the quality of life that they deserve. You’ll hear episodes on motivation, leadership, self-confidence, how to communicate better and how to Love and serve others and learn some marketing stuff too.
On occasion there may be some language that isn’t kid friendly but some episodes you may want your kids to hear. I’d recommend that you listen in before sharing with the kids.
A lot of people are doing things in their life and their career because they “can“ but the real question is… Should you be doing that? We’re going to explore that in 65 seconds on today’s 60 second sales tip.
Everyone says the culture is important to millennials and generation Z but I’m here to tell you there’s something bigger going on. Every day people are trading their virtues and values for a paycheck and all the while complaining about the employer… Who’s responsibility is it to police the values and virtues of the workplace? All of that in today’s 15 minute episode.
What does it mean to “get them gains?“ I have a better question… What are you doing with your losses? That’s what we’re going to discuss in under 10 minutes on today’s episode of the rockstar Unplugged Podcast.
The last 10 minutes of this episode are probably the most powerful thing I’ve ever shared publicly. I hope that you’re hanging until then because I share part of my life that a lot of folks don’t know about… And I think it will change your life. If it does, would you please share this with others?
People impact our lives in different ways and you can impact someone else’s. The guy at the gas station give me a rockstar experience and here are a few lessons you can learn from him and under eight minutes that will change your life, your income, and the lives of everyone you come into contact with.
