In my interview with author Michael Alden, he states that most self-help program don’t have the anticipated impact on people’s lives that they expect. The reason is that in his estimation people reach too high, then don’t achieve their goals and become disappointed.
Simply stated Michael says to just do 5% More in every area of your life and you will achieve your goals. This technique is not new, but Michael is absolutely one-hundred percent correct– if we just complete the incremental short term goals our larger goals and vision will manifest. Do they always manifest that we envision, no but we do make progress toward our goals and dreams–you bet.
In my interview with this dynamic author that has reached the pinnacle of success, we discuss his challenging youth being brought up in the housing projects, having a mother as a drug addict, and loosing other members of his family to drugs. Mike has seen it all, and as a result decided to take an alternative path, he became a lawyer then started a very successful marketing company called Blue Vase which sells millions of dollars of health related products through infomercials.
If you are on a quest to improve your batting average relative your goals in life then I would highly recommend that you read and study the techniques that Mike talks about in his new book 5% More.

This book is for anyone, it is a book for those who are willing to take charge of their destinies, beat the odds and create opportunity to pursue dreams on their own terms.
I recently sat down to conduct this podcast interview with Jonas Koffler one of three authors that makes up the team who wrote “Hustle-The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum.” Hustle addresses the political, social and economic issues that plague the American citizen attempting to have more meaning and money in their lives.
Jonas states “The “American Dream” is not longer about advancement or the acquisition of material possessions–secure job, car, home, family or even social mobility–alone. It is about greater freedom and autonomy to choose one’s own path forward. The American Dream is more of a DIY creative project than is has ever been, and hustle is the way to achieving it, surfacing one’s talents, capturing luck and opportunity, and leveraging skills and technology into a diversified portfolio of upward optionality.”
The authors definition of “hustle’ has been redefined to mean “Decisive movement toward a goal, however indirect, by which the motion itself manufactures luck, surfaces hidden opportunities, and charges our live with more money, meaning and momentum. “
If you want to change the trajectory of you life I highly recommend reading “Hustle” and listening to this interview. You can also join the “Hustle’ generation by joining the authors on their quest.

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Bill Jensen the author of a new book entitled ” Future Strong, How to Work Unleashed, Lead Boldly, and Live Life Your Way.”
According to Bill the future of work is undergoing radical transformation and it starts with you. Bill states that before personal commitments and habits come the choices we will make. Those choices include 1) Inner Truth-Will You hear the heartbeat of your past choices? 2) Soul on Fire-Who will you choose to become? 3) Humble Self-How will you choose to be vulnerable? 4) Sacrifice-What are the best hardships for my best future? 5) Reliance-Who will you choose to have your back.
The premise for “Future Strong” is that most businesses are locked into 20th century approaches that are holding back the next fundamental shift in human capacity. These outmoded systems and structures are on a collision course with the wave of millennials who will constitute half of all workers by 2020. Future Strong is the road map for leaders and individuals to create strong futures for themselves and their teams.
