Email has become a necessity in today's business environment - and it's brought us plenty of value and efficiency in both our personal and professional lives. But email can sometimes also be used as a way to avoid real conversations, to sidestep issues or frankly, to not make the effort. In the long run, this has real consequences, as I discuss in …
 
When we're communicating an idea or selling a product, we often think that if we just explain the benefits, people will buy. When they don't, we lament that they just didn't get it. But maybe we're the ones who didn't get it - because it's not anyone's job to listen, it's our job to make them want to hear us, as I discuss in today's podcast. If you…
 
In the last episode, I talked about how everyone has a platform and how that can be a good thing. But having a platform isn't for everyone, as it comes with a set of responsibilities around what we say and how we say it. Today's show speaks to some of what I believe are the ground rules for establishing your own platform. If you enjoyed this podcas…
 
Many of us believe we have a message to share, in one domain or another, and many of us long to actually share it. Today's episode speaks to the fact that we all now have a platform to say, write and otherwise communicate, anything we want. But wanting to and doing so are two different things, and the discussion today focuses on that inner dialogue…
 
Today's podcast focuses on the idea of owning our messages. In any work we do, we're called upon to present our ideas and findings in front of an audience. Often, we feel compelled to "do what we're told" or to "follow a script". The reality is that we need to own what we present, no matter our level. In this podcast, I discuss how. If you enjoyed …
 
Today's episode focuses on doing the things we want to do, but don't - either because we're concerned what others will say, or we overthink our own ability to be successful at it. Sometimes, this thought process is helpful, but more often than not, it gets in our way. Better to focus on what we want and just do. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd lov…
 
Today's episode recounts a decision I made many years ago that, in the grand scheme of things, was relatively minor. It was my decision to get - and then remove - my earring before I went to Business School. Not a huge decision in most contexts, but it was definitely one that taught me about why we make the choices we make - and WHY we should make …
 
Today's episode is a reflection on Bono, U2's legendary frontman. It's based on a post I wrote shortly after watching them perform The Joshua Tree live in Chicago. Bono represents the ideal when it comes to achievement. He does what he loves, has achieved tremendous success and uses this fame and success to do more for others. It's an ideal worth u…
 
Today's episode focuses on a story from Live Aid back in the mid-Eighties and a moment that set the band U2 on the path to global stardom. But on the day, it didn't seem like it to the band - and represents a lesson about risk-taking that we can all learn from. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could leave me a review on Apple Podcast…
 
Today's episode focuses on the age old debate of nature versus nurture. We love to argue whether talent is innate or developed, or whether entrepreneurs are born versus made. In the show, I argue that it doesn't matter - our only choice is to move forward to strive to achieve what we want. The alternatives aren't worth considering. If you enjoyed t…
 
Today's episode focuses on the one and only fundamental of success - doing the work. Our role models from the sports to the business worlds understand this. The one commonality amongst all of them is that they've paid their dues. They put in the effort and did what was needed to lay the foundation for their success. If we aspire to that success, we…
 
Today's podcast speaks to the perception that many of us have that we need to be (or at least show we're) perfect in front of those we live and work with. The problem with this approach is that it's founded in insecurity and the idea that our vulnerability is something we should hide, when in fact, it's actually our strength. If you enjoyed this po…
 
Today's episode focuses on the myth of the all-rounder. We're programmed to try and be good at everything, and when we don't hit the mark, we taught to judge ourselves negatively. But the fact is we all have spikes and, while general knowledge is a good thing, our spikes are what really matter. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could …
 
Today's episode focuses on the value of experience when starting a new business. Often, we'll hear about start-up success stories that are driven by founders with no prior history in that sector. I talk through why that happens and how that should probably be more the norm than the exception. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could le…
 
Today's podcast talks about our ideas of perfection, specifically in people. I relate a war story from my consulting days about how reputations of specific individuals can be both accurate and inaccurate at the same time. The quicker we learn that, the easier it becomes to forge solid working relationships. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it …
 
Today's podcast focuses on the idea of silos within our organizations and teams. There will always be tensions among different teams and that's actually not a bad thing. It's only bad when we let those tensions stop us from figuring out how to work together. When we truly collaborate, we're able to create great art. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd…
 
If you've ever wondered how to be rich or how rich people think, this episode goes in-depth into the 6 ways most people think about money and why it is so different from how millionaires think. Your money mindset, or how to think about money, will always affect your results - discover how to create a millionaire mindset right now.…
 
Today's podcast takes on the idea of having allies versus accomplices. That is, when we're growing something of consequence, social or economic, real progress is made when we have people willing to give - at some cost or risk to themselves - to further our collective goals. How they become accomplices is the real challenge. If you enjoyed this podc…
 
Do you expect a musician to be good at financial analysis? Do you expect a financial analyst to be good to creative work? Of course not. Then why do we define "good" in our teams in specific, narrow ways? Today's episode speaks to focus on our colleague's strengths and not class people as good or otherwise based on preconceived notions. If you enjo…
 
We all have a money story - a conditioned money "imprint" which is what we were taught about money growing up. How you think about money may be holding you back from your potential to be financially independent. In this first of four episodes on the money mindset, you'll discover how to become aware of your money story, and how that is the first st…
 
As the podcast hits 100 episodes, I close out this month's focus on lessons from popular culture. In particular, today's episode talks to the idea of putting our past in context. That we need to not only prize our prior experiences but also focus on moving forward. That our past doesn't define us - we continue to define ourselves. If you enjoyed th…
 
This month's podcasts draw lessons from popular culture. Today's episode is about legacy. I've always been intrigued by the fact that, when we leave, our world tends to go with us. So how do we leave something behind? How do we ensure that some part of our world, our experiences, remains well after we are gone? If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love…
 
How’s that 9 to 5 job going? What if, instead of working 50 weeks a year so you can vacation for 2, you were to design your life in a way that would let you never have to go on vacation again because you didn’t need to? This episode will show you how to leave your job, generate your own income, and work from home or work from anywhere by fitting yo…

This month's podcasts draw lessons from popular culture. Today's episode speaks to the importance of self-talk and our choice of words. But not simply in the most overt sense that we need to recite affirmations, but even in our most casual conversations with ourselves. Our self-talk matters. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could lea…
 
There are really only three things (other than the legal things like a business license and bank account) that you must have to run a work-from home internet business or to turn your brick and mortar business into an online business from home. This episode describes those three and how to put them into place.…
 
This month's podcasts draw lessons from popular culture. In today's episode, I discuss a quote from Thom Yorke of Radiohead about this idea of exposure and vulnerability and the role it plays not only in art (which we tend to accept) but also in business (which we often don't). If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could leave me a review…
 
This month's podcasts deal with matters of culture. In today's episode, I speak to how the most important subject in business is also the least valued at business schools: soft skills and specifically, working with people. It's a tension that isn't likely to abate anytime soon, but it's still one we need to maintain a laser focus on. If you enjoyed…
 
I'm back, with a bit of a rebrand to the show, and I explain so you’ll know if it’s time to unsubscribe or whether you want to share this show with others. At its core, this show is about freedom. And that includes the freedom to be financially independent so you are able to walk away from companies and organizations that no longer support you or y…
 
This month's podcasts deal with matters of culture. In today's episode, I discuss the problem of apathy - that is, when apathy arises in an organization, then we're all in trouble. The only solution - for everyone - is to engage. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could leave me a review on Apple Podcasts. It really helps spread my mes…
 
This month's podcasts deal with matters of culture. In today's episode, I speak to the value of assessing cultural fit when we're bringing new people into our teams, and when we're evaluating the long term impact of existing team members. It's not easy and it's tempting to look at hard metrics, but these soft ones can be the most critical to our su…
 
This months podcast deals with matters of culture. In today's episode, I speak to the Sumo concept of Hinkaku - that is, how being a champion is about more than tangible measures of performance. It also has to do with how we behave. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could leave me a review on Apple Podcasts. It really helps spread my …
 
This month's topics focus on personal war stories and observations. In today's episode, I talk about an experience I had with the late, great Professor C.K. Prahalad when I was at Ross Business School, and specifically what it taught me about actually being clear about what we want, versus chasing some idea of what we think we want. If you enjoyed …
 
This month's topics focus on personal war stories and observations. In today's episode, I talk about the time I turned down the chance to see Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls. Which is enough of a story in and of itself, but it's really a lesson in the need for balance, compartmentalization and looking out for yourself. If you enjoyed this podcast, I…
 
This month's topics focus on personal war stories and observations. Today's episode focuses on the importance of being able to work with people as the route to our success - as well as the sheer difficulty of learning (and mastering) how to do so. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could leave me a review on Apple Podcasts. It really h…
 
This month's topics focus on personal war stories and observations. Today's episode discusses how, in our quest for 'more', we’ve confused learning, knowledge and credibility with degrees, diplomas and doctorates. We need a reset in our collective thinking and biases on the subject of education. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could…
 
This month's topics focus on personal war stories and observations. Today's episode focuses on career management and specifically the fact that we cannot outsource our career management to others within our organizations, no matter how good or strong they might be. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could leave me a review on Apple Pod…
 
This month's podcasts focus on the art of communication - a critical skill no matter what we do for a living. In today's episode, I speak to the fine line we walk when we're in the midst of combative communications. In particular, I speak to the four elements that allow us to tell when it's constructive and when it's not. If you enjoyed this podcas…
 
This month's podcasts focus on the art of communication - a critical skill no matter what we do for a living. In today's episode, I discuss how no amount of clever language and word smithing can make up for a poor message or offering. That sometimes, the problem isn't in the message but with us. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if you could…
 
This month's podcasts focus on the art of communication - a critical skill no matter what we do for a living. Today's episode focuses on the idea of conflict, and the fact that it can actually be a good thing for our relationships at home and at work. The question is one of intent and ego (or lack of it). If you enjoyed this podcast, I'd love it if…
 
This month's podcasts focus on the art of communication - a critical skill no matter what we do for a living. Today's episode focuses on the idea of objectivity in what we believe and what we communicate. It's important to believe in ourselves but still be objective enough to understand the reality of our situations. If you enjoyed this podcast, I'…
