Choosing a Life of Entrepreneurship with Jeff Lerner

In the book The ONE Thing there’s a concept called “moving from E to P,” which means moving from the entrepreneurial outlook that’s necessary to get started and becoming purposeful in how you operate.

Jeff Lerner has his own unique look at what it means to move from E to P. We talk about how he views the value of entrepreneurship and leverages purpose to create extraordinary results, as well as how he’s created systems, tools, and a business to help support people in developing their own entrepreneurial skills and leverage their purpose.

The Power of Mentors (and Why You Need One Right Now) with Scott Jeffrey Miller

To go far—in business or in life—you have to lean on the knowledge and experience of those who’ve been where you want to go. That’s what mentorship is all about.

Easier said than done, though. People are busy—especially successful ones. But what if we told you that you can find all the mentors you need without them even knowing who you are?

Scott Jeffrey Miller is a speaker, author, and podcast host with over 25 years in the leadership development industry. His new book Master Mentors Volume 2 is a compilation of thirty transformative insights from the greatest minds he’s had the honor to interview on his podcast. He’s learned not only what great mentors have to teach, but also how to put their insights into practice with what he calls “informal mentorship.” We discuss the ins and outs of mentorship, how to find the right mentor for you, and how you can be a mentor to others.

How Getting Radically Curious Can Help Us Reshape the World with Seth Goldenberg

When you’re setting big, audacious goals, you first need to ask yourself some big questions: What do you want out of life? How will you make an impact on the world?

Seth Goldenberg is the author of Radical Curiosity, where he shares a practice that he believes will lead to incredible transformations in your life. The problem is that most of us have been taught to stop being curious. To stop asking questions, and to just do what’s expected. But you can’t live an outstanding life while doing things the way they’ve always been done.

We have an interesting conversation about what it means to be curious, how to ask big questions, and how those questions can inform the direction and impact of your business.

Harnessing the Power of Influence with Brian Smith

There’s a common phrase that gets thrown around when it comes to teamwork: “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘Team.’” But every team is made up of individuals—when we lose sight of that, the whole team suffers.

Teams need to be able to work together as a whole, but we can’t forget to address the individual influences and strengths that each person brings to the team. And each team, or even the entire company, can be viewed as a single “individual.” That’s the thesis that Brian and Mary Smith put forth.

Brian is the founder and senior managing partner of IA Business Advisors, a management consulting firm that has worked with more than 18 thousand CEOs, entrepreneurs, managers, and employees worldwide. Together with his daughter Mary, they’ve authored the book Individual Influence: Find the “I” in Team. We have a conversation about positive influence and making a difference in your organization and the people around you.
