I recently had the pleasure of interviewing a young new author and coach by the name of Zander Fryer.  Zander and several other authors co-authored a book with Jack Canfield entitled ” Mastering the Art of Success“.

In my interview with Zander, I get the opportunity to explore the journey and path that Zander took to become a top-notch coach as well as learn about his personal passion for helping his clients find and live their purpose.  Early in Zanders career, he made some mistakes and those mistakes lead him down a path to become one of the top systems architects at a major software company.  Then one day one of his mentors ask Zander a question that changed his life forever.  “What would you do if you could not fail?”  Zander had a passion for leading which came from his experience in being in the ROTC, and with that passion, he developed his own coaching organization.

Zander has studied under the best–Jack Canfield and advocates to his clients to find their joy in life and by knowing that you will live a life filled with more abundance, happiness, and fulfillment.  Zander has a great exercise to help someone find their life purpose.  He asks you to sit quietly and ask yourself “What is your life purpose?” then write what comes up.  Then he asks you to ask “What is your true-life purpose?” and repeat this about three times.   The purpose of doing this exercise three times that you will most likely get to the true inner purpose and it will help you refine your purpose.

I know that personally throughout my career I have made changes and taken course corrections. If you are like many people you may want to make a career course correction but you are uncertain about what your new career path might look like.  There are obviously lots of decision one must make, but in my interview with author Tim Cole, he outlines a great set of guiding principles that I believe would be great to follow.

In Tim’s new book “The Compass Solution” you are 4 P’s which stand for 1) Personal Accountability 2) People 3) Process 4) Perspective.  These main principles are important guideposts for navigating the path to a better career. As Tim states “It is your performance, your goals, and your vision for your life that will dictate your future.  For the remainder of your career, it will be the one thing you can count on and that you can set your course around.  Nothing else and no one else.”

I ask this questions to the listeners of this podcast.  If not now then when?  When will you make that all important decision to make the career change you have been thinking about but afraid to take?   Don’t let your fears hold you back.   Use this podcast and Tim’s book as the tools that can provide you with the courage and strength to make the change.  Allow the important information in the book to be your guide to a better career and life.

I recently conducted an interview with author Chris Barez Brown about his book entitled ” Wake-Up“–Podcast # 645.  I had such a great experience and interview with Chris that I invited him back to speak about his new book entitled “Shine, How To Survive And Thrive At Work“.

We all spend a lot of time at our work, so having fun and enjoying our work is so important to remain engaged.  In my interview with Chris, we discuss the many great ideas about how to keep our work fun and stay engaged.

Just one of the ideas includes a concept he calls “Who’s Elvis Around Here?” This is really a great idea, and is the person who stands out in your business, the one that breaks the rules, and makes things happen within the organization.  Is that you our are you just standing by waiting, or afraid to speak up?  Don’t stand on the sidelines waiting, get engaged and speak up with your good ideas to propel the business forward.

Chris states that our minds are highly efficient killing machines.  They are trained from an early age to destroy anything that doesn’t fit our model of the world. This means that analytical, logical minds dominate our working lives–what are you doing to get off or autopilot and tap into your abundant thinking brain which breaks the cycle of helping us to consider futures that are not based on past experience?

Shine, How to Survive and Thrive at Work is a book loaded with great ideas to help you thrive in the workplace.  It is an easy read and should be the companion to anyone wanting to make a difference at work.

This is my second interview with author and entrepreneur Michael Alden.   What I love about Michael is his passion for his work and life, he truly is a trailblazer.

His new book entitled ” Blueprint to Business-An Entrepreneur’s Guide To Taking Action, Committing To the Grind, And Doing The Things That Most People Won’t” is a must-read for any entrepreneur.  Michael has had his share of ups and downs like many entrepreneurs, but he has learned from his lessons and applies the learning to make the next venture he gets engaged with just that much more successful.

Michael’s book is the ultimate guide with practical advice from a master entrepreneur who can really teach new entrepreneurs invaluable lessons.  I can really appreciate his chapter on “Doing What You Say”.  “In business and in life, always do what you say you’re going to do. Keep your word. When you tell yourself that you are going to do something, and you don’t do it, you’re doing yourself a disservice, and you’re setting yourself back. Not following through on something you said you were going to do is an absolute travesty.”

This sound advice runs throughout “Blueprint to Business” In my interview with Michael we speak about his personal life and business ventures, as well as he imparts practical and sound advice about becoming an entrepreneur.  I know you will love this lively and engaging interview with the author, entrepreneur Michael Alden.
