54: It's possible to live the life you love (Five simple tips!) with Stu Massengill
Job satisfaction statistics have been challenged for years, often hovering in the 60%-70% range. I recall, when writing my first book, Success On Your Own Terms: 6 Promises to Fire Up Your Passion, Ignite Your Career, and Create an Amazing Life, back in 2013, how heavily that notion weight on my mind, that any given time while driving to work, I could count off the cars stuck in traffic with me, and at best, only three out of ten were excited about the destination they were heading to. Stu Massengill is on a mission to change the statistic to most people falling in love with what they do. He is a Peak Performance Strategist for Tony Robbins and the founder of Finding Direction. Through his podcast and university, he helps people go from lost in life to creating a life full of passion and fulfillment. We uncover five tips that I believe will be instructive in helping you move forward during our discussion. The Five Tips: 1. Be willing to experiment and undergo “trials” on your way to finding your life’s work. 2. Overcome big challenges on your way to more significant milestones. 3. Shift the questions you ask yourself from a position of “what is void or missing?” to a place of “how do I best use and give from what I have?” 4. Develop people skills to leverage the relationship opportunities along your journey fully. 5. Believe that you truly can live a life that you love. #purposedrivencareer #businesspodcast #businesspodcasts #careerpodcast #entrepreneurpodcast #podcasts #podcast #newpodcast #businessleaders #business #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #podcastinterview #businessadvice

53: Solving The Student Debt and Savings Crisis with Emeka Oguh
According to the American Federal of Teachers, more than 45 million student loan borrowers owe student debt, amassing over $1.6 trillion (the second-largest type of consumer debt after mortgages). This translates to $37,000 for the average college debt holder, which ends up being about a 7.7-year delay in their path to homeownership. Emeka Oguh, Founder and CEO of PeopleJoy, is on a mission to solving what he calls the “student debt and savings crises.” He and his team bring a set of employer-employee and direct-to-consumer tools to the market that saves borrowers money without accruing more debt and builds them an investment fund —all at once covered by the current payment of their student loan.

51: Eight Unbreakable Rules for Business Start-up Success with Sean Castrina
Owning a small business can be personally and finally rewarding. However, 90% of start-ups fail within the first three-years. During this episode, you will learn Sean’s Eight Unbreakable Rules for Business Start-up Success that he has created after starting over twenty businesses over the past twenty years. Starting a business takes a huge leap of faith. There are plenty of obstacles for aspiring business owners to overcome, from developing a business plan to establishing your target market, to building the right team. For self-made entrepreneur Sean Castrina, the key to success lies in a practical mindset and eight simple rules. Sean Castrina is an entrepreneur with over twenty companies under his belt and at least one more being added each year. He is an accomplished financial writer and best-selling author, having written the titles “The World’s Greatest Business Plan: That Actually Works,” “The Greatest Entrepreneur in the World,” and the “8 Unbreakable Rules for Business Start-Up Success.” He has written for several notable publications, including Forbes and Yahoo Finance, and has held events alongside the likes of Tony Robbins and John Maxwell. Sean also hosts his own podcast, called the “10 Minute Entrepreneur Podcast.” Sean says the best way to approach business is to be systematic. How has he succeeded in his ventures where others have failed? Simply put, he says to look at the data. He analyzes why businesses before his have failed and tries to see what he can do better. Sean also believes establishing a solid business plan and having that thoroughly vetted are essential to get started. Entrepreneurship doesn’t have to be something you do all alone. According to Sean, “One plus one equals done.” Partnering is an essential tool for your business arsenal. Whether they’re full-time or only hop on board for specific projects, a reliable partner is just what you need to fill in any oversights and help you see your plan to execute. The road to entrepreneurship is challenging and will require a keen mindset, some investment, and for some, even the juggling of regular work alongside your business goals. But Sean summarizes his journey and what has worked for him over twenty times over in his eight unbreakable rules. 1. Act like an entrepreneur. No procrastination or laziness. If you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you need to think and act like one. Hone the qualities and skills of someone ready to succeed. 2. Formulate a business plan. You need a comprehensive and thorough business plan that will target all the points you need before moving to the next phase. As Sean emphasizes, beta testing is key for qualifying your idea. 3. Put your plan together. Make sure you’ve answered all your questions in your plan – What’s your target market? Who isare your competition? What will your starting costs be? Then, string everything together for a foolproof and reliable business model. 4. Protect your business. Leap through whatever legal and intellectual property hurdles you need to to ensure your business, as well as you and your partners, will be safeguarded. 5. Build a strong team. No business or business owner can succeed without the right people ready to support you. 6. Market your business. A good marketing plan is a must. Don’t rely on word of mouth. 7. Know your numbers. Don’t rely on accountants or assistants to memorize your numbers for you. Make sure you know all the goings-on around your offices each and every day. 8. Learn, learn, learn. Whether through online courses, podcasts, books, or fellow entrepreneurs, Sean says you’re never too far in your career to be a learner.

38: Five Steps Towards Partnering with Higher Education to solve Systemic Racism with Greg Hanifee
Many are inspired to contribute to the eradication of systemic racism but struggle with how best to do so. The call to action is seemingly driven by a “tragic moment,” but the issues drive much deeper. As one begins to understand the depths of challenges that span areas such as criminal justice, education, economics, voting, jobs, health, and more, it can be overwhelming. Institutions of higher education can be engaged as allies provided you understand the landscape and have a strategy. They are the largest employers in 10 states and two-thirds of America’s 100 largest cities, employing nearly 4 million people. Economically, these schools hold nearly $600 Bn in endowments. They cultivate entrepreneurship, incubate new businesses, and provide through-leadership to companies large and small throughout the world. Greg Hanifee (Associate Dean at the Kellogg School of Management) and I will provide you with some clear ideas for partnering, engaging, and driving forward.

35: The Three Keys To Increasing Authentic Leadership with David Brown, Jr.
We’ve often seen the word “authentic” being used to describe leaders, influencers, and personalities, especially in the time of digital media.
