Your Biggest Barrier to Success with Ryan Holiday
51:14

The last 18 months have been this generation of business owners’ greatest challenge. A natural byproduct of a challenging situation is fear. You’ve probably felt your fair share of it recently as you guided your team through the chaos. But as a leader it’s your job to lead no matter the circumstance, and that’s going to require courage. In this week’s episode of The EntreLeadership Podcast, we sit down with Ryan Holiday to discuss his new book, Courage Is Calling. Ryan challenges us to ponder the question, “What would the world look like if we all acted courageously every day?” Then, in our second segment, George Kamel sits down with Ramsey Solutions’ Executive Vice President Blake Thompson. He breaks down how we, at Ramsey, have been taking calculated risks since the early days when The Dave Ramsey Show still only had one station.

Why People Are Leaving Your Company with Shawn Davis
51:31

As leaders, we know employee turnover is expensive. And while that’s bad enough, becoming demoralized because you can't seem to find a solution is even worse. Questions like, Is there something wrong with me? and Why do I even bother? start creeping into your mind. In this episode of The EntreLeadership Podcast, we interview chef Shawn Davis, owner of Big Shake’s Hot Chicken & Fish. Shawn knows a thing or two about turnover from working in the restaurant industry. But at the end of the day, he still believes investing in your team is worth it—no matter how long they’re with you. Later in the episode, we sit down with Suzanne Simms, a Ramsey Solutions board member, to hear about how she uses friendship and vulnerability to create trust with the team she leads on a day-to-day basis. Remember, life’s too short to not be friends with the people you work with!

But with that growth comes the pressure for the people in charge to keep up—or else watch their company culture get out of control. In this episode, Turner gets vulnerable about what makes leadership so hard and what he’s doing to keep growing into the leader his business needs so it can get to the next level.

01:07:58

Most people wouldn’t consider HVAC companies, occupational therapists or construction contractors to be creatives. Seth Godin, bestselling author of leadership staples like Linchpin and Tribes, disagrees. He joins EntreLeadership to talk about the essential practice of shipping creative work and inventing the future—even if you aren’t conventionally “creative” and there are no guarantees the idea will work.

01:08:27

How do you create a brand people rave about? Turns out, there’s more to it than just fancy fonts and packaging. Tim Newton, senior creative officer at Ramsey Solutions, argues that truly amazing brands dig deeper. They use what they value to influence every touchpoint they have with customers.

Time is a limited resource. And somehow it seems to be extra precious to come by when you’re running a business. It’s actually one of your most valuable assets as a leader and should be protected.

01:00:07

Once a successful attorney, Shawn Askinosie had it all—security, a winning track record, and good money. So why did he find himself struck by a panic attack as he left the courtroom one day? Shawn took a hard look in the mirror and discovered he was completely unfulfilled by his job and his life. And so, his search for meaningful work began, leading him from the courtroom to cocoa beans, and eventually, to Askinosie Chocolate. The community-changing chocolatier joins the EntreLeadership team to share his incredible story of self-discovery and how small businesses have the opportunity to create meaningful work and make a real difference in the world, one person at a time.

#395: Pitfalls to Avoid in Your Leadership with Dr. Chip Dodd
01:13:59

Fear, anger and shame are generally NOT the emotions we get excited about using in our leadership toolkits (or in life). In fact, leaders are trained to leave emotions at the door or to believe that emotions are a sign of weakness. But Dr. Chip Dodd, author of The Voice of the Heart, says these “weaknesses” are actually tools for strength in business and in life. Tune in as he shares the true value of human emotions, the pitfalls of leadership, and why he’ll never get on an airplane with a fearless pilot.

If your average day at work is consumed with putting out fires and dealing with one emergency after the other, you’re on a very slippery slope.

#381: Debt Is Never the Answer with Dave Ramsey
51:02

While many people stubbornly subscribe to the you-have-to-borrow-money-to-make-money philosophy, Dave Ramsey knows that idea is just a bold-faced lie. And he learned it the hard way. Forced to file bankruptcy in his twenties, Dave started over from scratch and has since built a multimillion-dollar business the only way he knows how: at the speed of cash. That’s right, over 25 years later and now with a team of nearly 1,000 people, Dave is—and has resolved to remain—debt-free. Tune in to hear Dave explain why debt is never the answer, no matter how tempting an opportunity may be—or how dire the circumstances (we’re looking at you, COVID-19).

#376: Keeping Your Dream Alive with Drew Holcomb
01:24:51

As many an entrepreneur will tell you, what originally starts as a dream opportunity can all too often turn into a never-ending nightmare. But Drew Holcomb refused to let his story play out that way. Rather than simply focusing on the creative side of his career over the past 15 years, the singer/songwriter doubled down on infrastructure to build a thriving business (in an extremely competitive industry, no less). Tune in as Drew shares how he balances priorities and navigates change, and what he loves most about his job.

#375: Operating with Mission Focus with Evan Hafer
01:15:06

Black Rifle Coffee Company founder Evan Hafer says building a successful business over the past six years has been the most difficult thing he has ever done—and Evan has done some seriously hard stuff, like 43 overseas rotations in nine years as a Green Beret in the United States Army. One thing that has made it easier, he says, is locking in on the mission of his company. Tune in to hear Evan explain how maintaining mission focus at all times not only allows you to make the right decisions and crush your goals, but also makes you a much better leader.

#372: Going All Out in Your Business with Paul Steele
59:33

Triple 8 Management Partner Paul Steele says he’s always been an entrepreneur but is quick to admit that it kind of happened by accident. Diagnosed with attention deficit disorder as a young child, Paul chose to channel what he calls his “fidgeting” into entrepreneurial endeavors, like selling his baseball card collections or stamping envelopes for his mother’s real estate business. And once he started working, he never stopped—and he’s logged enough 80+ hour work weeks to prove it . Tune in to hear how Paul went from being homeless (three times!) in college to today heading up one of the fastest-growing music management companies in Nashville.

#368: How to Always Add Value with Adam Grant
01:14:21

Organizational psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Adam Grant shares insight from his research on what qualities really add the most value to a team. Hint, narcissism isn’t one of them. In fact, having a blinding, high regard of yourself or your abilities tends to make a business less efficient and less effective—no matter how great the individual performances of the team members may be. Listen and learn how to always add value, learn from your limitations, and build a humble team culture.

56:49

If your goal is to grow your business, Trainual Founder and CEO Chris Ronzio—who successfully grew his own company by 500% in just one year—has some advice: If you want to do something differently tomorrow, you’ve got to teach someone else what you’re doing today.

Tune in to hear Chris break down his do-document-delegate approach that will help you scale knowledge, empower your team, and maximize productivity.

#347: Growing 57,000% in 3 Years with Tom Bilyeu
53:13

Entrepreneur and Quest Nutrition co-founder Tom Bilyeu isn’t a doctor, but he has confidently diagnosed himself with a “sickness” that has only one symptom: an intense need to matter. But if you ask him, it’s a pretty good affliction to have. And considering that he helped grow Quest by 57,000% in only three years, we’d say he’s 100% right. Tune in as Tom breaks down the difference between ambition and drive and shares why pursuing your passion—not a big payday—is infinitely more rewarding in the long run.

This week marks the 18th anniversary of September 11, 2001, a day that forever changed our nation.

#338: How to Play an Infinite Game with Simon Sinek
46:51

Forget winning or losing. Bestselling author and leadership expert Simon Sinek says the most important thing is to determine what kind of game you’re playing. For example, baseball is a finite game—a game with known players, fixed rules and an agreed-upon objective. Business, on the other hand, is an infinite game: The rules are changeable, there is no set finish line, and no one wins. And if that isn’t complicated enough, Simon warns that if you approach business with a finite mind-set, the consequences are disastrous. Tune in to learn the five things you need to have in order to prevent disaster and successfully navigate the infinite game of business.

#335: Why Self-Knowledge Matters with Ian Morgan Cron
01:01:35

There’s a lot of talk these days about the importance of self-awareness—and for good reason—but bestselling author and Enneagram master teacher Ian Morgan Cron says nearly 90% of us aren’t self-aware at all.

A life lived with both passion and purpose—and fewer costly mistakes along the way, too. We’re also joined by Daniel Tardy (Ramsey Solutions’ Executive Vice President of Business and Leadership) and Jen Sievertsen (Ramsey Solutions’ Chief Marketing Officer) with an insightful look at the ultimate leadership position: parent.

On today’s bonus episode, we’re taking you back to San Diego, California, where EntreLeadership Summit is underway. Have you ever heard of a natural-born leader? Well, we hate to break it to you, but there’s no such thing. Tune in as Dave Ramsey explains why leaders are built, not born, and what it takes to become an amazing one.

We’ll also take you behind the scenes to our Live From Summit stage where Ken Coleman sits down to chat—first with Dave, and later with speakers Dr. Henry Cloud and Patrick Lencioni. Get ready, folks. We’re just getting warmed up!

#306: Studying Failure with Jon Erwin
44:21

Whether we like it or not—and sometimes, in spite of our best intentions and best efforts—failure is unavoidable. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, says filmmaker Jon Erwin, whose production company makes faith-based, inspirational feature films. In fact, he insists if you examine failure closely—think an uncomfortable, really honest look—you may very well find the keys to your next big success. Tune in as Jon shares how doing just that helped him learn from a crushing box office loss in 2015 to go on to make the highest-grossing independent film of 2018. Also joining us is Craig Groeschel, founder and senior pastor of Life.Church, with an invaluable lesson on the power of feedback.

#305: You’re Doing Delegation Wrong with Dave Ramsey
47:59

News flash: When it comes to running a business, you can’t do it all. Sure, you can survive 90-hour work weeks for a season, but ultimately if you’re interested in building a business bigger than you, you’re going to have to delegate. And it’s not as simple as telling someone else to do something for you and hoping for the best. Tune in to hear Dave Ramsey explain the 10 basics of delegation, the same ones that helped him build his business from scratch and develop it into an international brand with more than 800 team members. Also joining us are Ramsey Solutions’ own Daniel Tardy and Sarah Sloyan who share why—and how—to develop new leaders within your organization. And finally, StoryBrand CEO Donald Miller weighs in on the undeniable value those leaders add to your bottom line. If you’re feeling even the least bit overwhelmed, don’t miss this powerful episode.

#304: Are Core Values Worthless? with Donald Miller
31:51

Core values can be tricky. So many companies are quick to say they have them, but if you ask best-selling author and StoryBrand CEO Donald Miller, too few actually mean much of anything. And the reason is simple: They fail to answer three things that every team member wants—and needs—to know. Tune in to hear Donald explain exactly how to get your core values right so they inspire and motivate your team, not create mass confusion.

37:46

If you tend to blame yourself for your bad habits, New York Times best-selling author James Clear says you’re wasting your time.

Tune in to hear James explain the real cause of bad habits (translation: You’re off the hook!), as well as some super easy strategies to help you break them and replace them with good ones. We think you’ll be amazed at how even the tiniest change can lead to really remarkable results.

We’ve compiled a comprehensive roundup of the year’s episodes that did what the best ones always do: inform and inspire, change our perspective, and challenge us to stretch ourselves.

#254: The Power of Curiosity with Chalene Johnson
34:13

If you use social media to market your business (and really, who doesn’t?), lifestyle and business expert Chalene Johnson says the best way to build your tribe is through something she calls “curiosity marketing.” The goal is to first position yourself as a trusted friend and give your customers just enough information to pique their interest and get them asking questions. That curiosity allows you to engage your customers in an authentic conversation, which then helps create a relationship that, with any luck, leads to a sale. Tune in to find out Chalene’s three golden rules of doing it well. Also joining us are Revelation Real Estate owners Chuck and Angela Fazio, who credit the EntreLeadership Master Series for helping them completely transform their culture and reach $1.4 billion in sales.

#247: Virtual Culture with Bryan and Shannon Miles
40:08

Bryan and Shannon Miles, cofounders of the wildly successful virtual support provider BELAY, have done what many would think impossible: create a unified and thriving culture among a team made up entirely of telecommuters. Turns out you don’t need to work in the same building—or in some cases, even the same state—to foster excellent communication, unparalleled accountability, and good morale. In lieu of a corporate office, Bryan and Shannon have decided to invest in their team instead of infrastructure. If eight years in business, 60 employees, and 500 contractors are any indication, it looks like they’re doing something really right. Tune in to find out how to do the same in your organization, virtual or not. Also joining us is All Access member Renee Daggett, president of AdminBooks, to highlight what you need to know now about the new tax bill.

#246: Creating a Culture Like Netflix's with Patty McCord
43:26

When it comes to shaping a healthy and vibrant culture, Patty McCord—co-creator of the now viral (think over 12 million views) Netflix Culture deck—says most companies are doing it all wrong. In fact, she contends that commonly held “best practices” like performance reviews or limits on vacation time are surprisingly ineffective when it comes to keeping people motivated and engaged at work. Instead, during her 14-year tenure at Netflix, Patty found that people are far more productive when guided by their own logic and common sense rather than antiquated HR policies. Join us to find out how to create a culture of high performance and profitability in your own business, stat.

#244: The Danger of Complacency with Charles Koch
43:21

Ever since taking over his family’s business at age 25, Charles Koch has been guided by one singular mantra: Success is one of the biggest enemies of success. Those powerful words have inspired the chairman and CEO of Koch Industries to keep pushing, keep experimenting, keep improving—a state he likes to call “continual transformation.” Koch’s ironclad belief that there is always a way to do it better has helped grow the company into a $100 billion enterprise—one that prides itself, first and foremost, on creating unparalleled value for its customers. And that’s something any business, regardless of size, can aspire to. Join us to hear Charles explain why complacency is never an option and what you need to do to outpace your competition.

56:17

We all know the creative process is unpredictable at best, but if you ask best-selling author Todd Henry, the one thing you can control every single time is the way you are guiding that work as the leader. Not only is your role more influential than you may realize, says the international speaker on leadership and creativity, but the stakes are about as high as they get.

Tune in to find out the two things every creative needs to thrive, as well as what you need to do to lead creatives well.

#241: Dr. Marshall Goldsmith—4 Ways to Win Now
58:37

After years spent traveling the globe working with top CEOs, world-renowned leadership coach and best-selling author Dr. Marshall Goldsmith has discovered a universal truth: We all make mistakes. And oftentimes, even the seemingly inconsequential ones (for instance, not saying thank you enough) can undermine the most skilled, charismatic leaders. Luckily, there are four behaviors you can adopt right now that can help put you on a more successful—and likely more profitable—leadership path. And though Marshall’s advice is simple and straightforward, don’t expect real change to come overnight without some major commitment and determination on your end. As Marshall likes to say, the challenge in life is not the understanding; it’s the doing. Tune in to find out how to make the most of Marshall’s proven and practical methods in your own business.

#240: Clay Scroggins—How to Build Your Influence
52:06

One of the most common misconceptions we all have about leadership is that it’s the same thing as authority, according to lead pastor of North Point Community Church, Clay Scroggins. During his 10-year tenure at the Alpharetta, GA-based megachurch, Clay has learned that nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, he has come to the conclusion that the real currency of leadership has nothing at all to do with being in charge but rather with influence. And that’s really great news, because every single one of us has the ability to be influential. The key is first figuring out who you are. Join us to find out where to go from there so you can start leading today.

#239: Top 10 EntreLeadership Podcasts of 2017
01:43:02

 

If you could only use one word to describe 2017, it would have to be transformation. From politics to technology to the job market, there have been a lot changes this year.

Here at the EntreLeadership Podcast headquarters, that’s incredible news. We LOVE change—especially when it comes to helping you transform yourself and your business. It’s like former British prime minister Winston Churchill once said, “To improve is to change, so to be perfect is to have changed often.”

With that in mind, 2017 was a banner year. Our guests focused on helping you get better in many areas. To make the most of their sage advice, we’re closing out the year with clips from some of our favorite conversations. They were selected based on number of downloads and feedback from our listeners. We hope you enjoy them! Have a wonderful new year!

Seth Godin—Change Your Mind, Change Your Life

The Rundown: Marketing master Seth Godin returns to the podcast for an in-depth conversation on change, from why we avoid it to how you can make it the number one weapon in your arsenal.

Top Takeaway: Change creates an environment where you are not an expert. So if you don’t like the feeling of incompetence, you’ll fight the feeling of change. Getting comfortable with the feeling of being incompetent is one of the most important things you can do.  

Favorite Quote: “The only way to get better is to do things differently.”

Chris Baréz-Brown—Escaping a Life on Autopilot

The Rundown: It’s been estimated that 50% of our time awake is spent on autopilot, leading to a life of missed moments and even less enjoyment at home and at work. Chris Baréz-Brown is on a mission to help us escape that routine. The inspirational speaker, author and business beatnik joins us to share his tips on how to feel more conscious, joyful and inspired, and how to avoid missing what matters most.

Top Takeaway: Want to break the cycle of running a hundred miles per hour all day—spending all of your time putting out fires? Take a walk with someone for 7.5 minutes and talk it up while they listen. It gives you better perspective, insight, ideas and the ability to think differently about the future.

Favorite Quote: “You can’t be a good creative leader unless you are a conscious leader.”

Jocko Willink—The Discipline Advantage

The Rundown: A favorite of our listeners, retired Navy SEAL commander Jocko Willink returns to our Top 10 list for the second year in a row. Once upon a time, Willink traveled the world on military missions. These days, as a best-selling author and leadership coach, his work still takes him around the globe but to a much different battlefield. Jocko joins us to share his thoughts on developing leaders.

Top Takeaway: If you want someone to step up into a leadership position, put them in one that’s slightly out of their comfort zone and watch them rise to the occasion. This idea doesn’t just work with your high-potential people; it works with your problem children who aren’t performing or have a negative attitude.

Favorite Quote: “If you’re the easy button for your team, they’re going to get trained and conditioned to use that easy button. They are going to come to you for everything.”

Jon Taffer—Rescue Your Business

The Rundown: When it comes to a struggling business, we’ve heard pretty much every excuse in the book: a terrible economy, a bad location, an overcrowded marketplace. But Jon Taffer isn’t buying it. The no-holds-barred star of Spike TV’s hit show Bar Rescue explains why excuses are the common denominator of all failing businesses—and exactly how to kick them to the curb for good.  

Top Takeaway: You don’t have to spend a fortune with traditional advertising to market your business. All it takes is organization, high standards, an engaged owner and some common sense.

Favorite Quote: “Every failing business has a failing owner.”

David Allen—Getting Strategic With Personal Productivity

The Rundown: If “overwhelmed” seems like the best way to describe your day, listen in. Because the leading authority on personal organization, David Allen, joins us to discuss how to get things done. This best-selling author shares new insights on personal productivity and how you can become more effective, organized and focused, plus how you can plan projects like a pro.

Top Takeaway: You need to get things off your mind so you are free to focus on what you want to focus on. Your head is for developing ideas, not for holding them. Give yourself time to stop and reflect on how you’re doing. Build in a thinking process. Take two hours a week to step back and check the inventory of what’s going on.  

Favorite Quote: “Your head is a crappy office to hold ideas.”

Chris Voss—Negotiating as if Your Life Depended on It

The Rundown: Former FBI international hostage negotiator Chris Voss joins us to share effective tactics and strategies you can use to become more persuasive in both your professional and personal life and how to solve business communication challenges with these hostage-negotiation techniques.

Top Takeaway: When negotiating, always use the “mirror technique.” Repeating the last three words someone said creates a connection and gives you permission to persuade.

Favorite Quote: “You become the smartest person in the room when you start tapping into other people’s brains.”

Bob Beaudine—The Power of Relationships

The Rundown: Remember the days of going to local events, handing out cards, and hoping to grab some new business? Bob Beaudine believes this kind of networking is not viable anymore because you already know everyone you need to—and it starts with your friends. As CEO of Eastman & Beaudine, Bob manages the nation’s leading executive-search firm in sports/entertainment.

Top Takeaway: Networking is not working for Americans any longer. Your most powerful network is created by simply by interacting with people in your daily life. Focus on doing business with your friends and the rest will take care of itself.

Favorite Quote: “You already know everyone you need to know.”

Ryan Holiday—Battling Ego

The Rundown: Ego is an enemy we all face—wrecking careers, impeding learning, and running companies into the ground. Entrepreneur and best-selling author Ryan Holiday joins us to discuss how to keep your ego in check in this age of “It’s all about me.” This is a must-listen for anyone who wants to succeed.

Top Takeaway:  History is made by individuals who fought their egos at every turn, who avoided the spotlight, and who put their higher goals above their desire for recognition.

Favorite Quote: “Sometimes when everyone tells you you’re wrong, they’re wrong. But often when everyone says, ‘Hey that’s a really bad idea,’ they’re right and you should listen to them. Ego can make you lose the ability to discern good advice from bad advice.”

Simon Sinek—The Number One Question for Success

The Rundown: What’s the one question you need to ask that will propel you, your business and your team to greater heights? Leadership expert and best-selling author Simon Sinek stops by to give the answer, plus he shares lots of additional leadership and business tips.

Top Takeaway: Your why has to be front and center. It’s the thing that inspires people. It’s the thing that will give them their marching orders on how to build the business. As soon as your team knows the why, they’ll instinctively know what decision to make. That’s called scale.

Favorite Quote: “People rise to the occasion. Let them make decisions. Let them own it.”

Mel Robbins—5 Seconds to a Better Life and Business

The Rundown: What if you could become more confident, stop procrastinating, beat fear and uncertainty, story worrying, and feel happier? Mel Robbins says you can change in five seconds, and she’s sharing the tools you need to get started transforming your life.  

Top Takeaway: You can do tricks to outsmart your mind. The moment you have an instinct you should do something but you start to hesitate or feel afraid, use the five-second rule. Start counting backwards 5-4-3-2-1 and then move.  

Favorite Quote: “If you let your emotions kick in as someone is trying to undercut you, you’re not going to be powerful.”

Donald Miller—How to Double Your Revenue

The Rundown: Donald Miller, best-selling author and CEO of StoryBrand, knows your most powerful marketing tool has nothing to do with a big budget. The most effective marketing comes down to one simple thing: the right words.

Top Takeaway: We intuitively know we have to simplify our message. People aren’t as smart as we are in our field of expertise. Most of us are talking over their heads. We have to speak to their actual needs.

Favorite Quote: “The problem is you’re so smart that you have to get a dumb guy to look at your website.”

Her company may be in the cleaning business, but she likes to say she’s in the business of making her team members better people. You can do the same thing in your own business and if you ask Kristen, the upside is endless. Join us to learn how it’s done.
