Ep. 938: Martin Lindstrom Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
You try to reserve a conference room for a crucial client meeting via your company’s new-and-improved computer service, only to find that every conference room is booked–seemingly forever. Your weekly conference call is hijacked by video screens freezing, cords not working, and employees dropping in and out. You then sit through an endless Power Point presentation that everyone claims they’ve read, no one has, and that could have been summarized in one page. What has happened to common sense? And how can we get it back? Companies, it seems, have become so entangled in their own internal issues, and further beset by reams of invisible red tape, that they’ve lost sight of their core purpose. Inevitably, they pay the price. Best-selling author Martin Lindstrom combines numerous real‑life examples of corporate common sense gone wrong with his own ingenious plan for restoring logic—and sanity—to the companies and people that need it most. A must-read for today’s executives, managers, and office workers, The Ministry of Common Sense is funny, entertaining, and immensely practical. Bio: Martin Lindstrom is a well-known international management consultant who routinely sees various kinds of “corporate constipation” all over the world. The author of several New York Times bestsellers – his eight books have been translated into sixty languages. Lindstrom is among the “world’s 100 most influential people” (Time magazine) and the “world’s top 20 business thinkers” for 2020 (Thinkers50).

Ep. 934: Martin Babinec Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
We hear it from politicians, the media, and just about everyone else: “We need more good jobs!” And yet nobody is telling us how to create good jobs. After successfully starting and growing a multibillion-dollar company in Silicon Valley, Martin Babinec returned to his home in Upstate New York where he then realized there were a number of forces at play in Silicon Valley-forces he hadn’t appreciated-that had helped him succeed as an entrepreneur. Since then, he’s been on a journey to understand the importance of community dynamics in the creation of new businesses. He’s found a growing divergence between magnet cities-brimming with talent and new businesses-and talent exporting cities-where bright young minds leave in search of better opportunities. Martin has a playbook for turning your community into a magnet city, helping local entrepreneurs to start and grow companies and, in doing so, creating more good jobs for everyone in our communities.

Ep. 930: Michelle Seiler-Tucker Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
Too many entrepreneurs push off planning for the sale of their business until the last moment. But for a business to sell for what it’s really worth — or even more — owners need to prepare for the sale from the very start. Mergers and acquisitions authority Michelle Seiler Tucker joins forces with Sharon Lechter, finance expert and author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, to create a must-have guide for all business owners whether they’re gearing up to sell a business now or just getting started building out their company into something to sell for a profit in the future. Seiler Tucker’s twofold approach to selling a business for maximum profit combines two of the most powerful elements of her mergers and acquisitions toolkit: an exit model to help business owners set goals for the sale before their business hit the market, and a model to help them objectively evaluate their business’s worth, before their potential buyers do. Combined, these tools provide invaluable insight into the process of preparing a business for sale, finding the right buyers, and staging the sale itself. Michelle Seiler Tucker is a rich resource for any business owner looking to: Objectively evaluate their business before a sale Improve their chances of finding the right buyer Sell their business for maximum profit Bio: Michelle Seiler Tucker is the Founder and CEO of Seiler Tucker Incorporated. She has sold hundreds of businesses to date and currently owns and operates several successful businesses.

Ep. 927: Marissa King Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
Social Chemistry will utterly transform the way you think about “networking.” Understanding the contours of your social network can dramatically enhance personal relationships, work life, and even your global impact. Are you an Expansionist, a Broker, or a Convener? The answer matters more than you think… Yale professor Marissa King shows how anyone can build more meaningful and productive relationships based on insights from neuroscience, psychology, and network analytics. Conventional wisdom says it’s the size of your network that matters, but social science research has proven there is more to it. King explains that the quality and structure of our relationships has the greatest impact on our personal and professional lives. As she shows, there are three basic types of networks, so readers can see the role they are already playing: Expansionist, Broker, or Convener. This network decoder enables readers to own their network style and modify it for better alignment with their life plans and values. High-quality connections in your social network strongly predict cognitive functioning, emotional resilience, and satisfaction at work. A well-structured network is likely to boost the quality of your ideas, as well as your pay. Beyond the office, social connections are the lifeblood of our health and happiness. The compiled results from dozens of previous studies found that our social relationships have an effect on our likelihood of dying prematurely—equivalent to obesity or smoking. Bio: Marissa King is professor of Organizational Behavior at the Yale School of Management, where she developed and teaches a popular course entitled Managing Strategic Networks. Over the past fifteen years, King has studied how people’s social networks evolve, what they look like, and why that’s significant. Her most recent line of research analyzes the individual and group-level behaviors that are necessary for large-scale organizational change.

Ep. 924: Charles Goyette Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
“If you had foreseen the financial confusion of the Carter years, or the exploding debt in the Bush years, or the Federal Reserve’s “money printing” spree during the Obama presidency, you might have profited richly from the resulting bull markets in gold and silver. But today’s governmental recklessness dwarfs each of those episodes. Add other accelerants to the dollar and debt crises—including currency and trade wars, an unaffordable military empire, and a juggernaut of domestic state socialism—now converging to fuel an era of monetary destruction that will drive gold prices to unimaginable heights.” That is where my guest today stands. Is he right? Time will tell. Does he lay a societal foundation hard to ignore? You bet. If we had more conversations like this across America we would be in a much better place. Bio: Charles Goyette is a New York Times bestselling author, commentator, and talk show host, best known for his views on markets and economic issues. He has appeared often on national TV on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox Business, and PBS.

Ep. 923: Weijian Shan Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
My guest today Weijian Shan takes me through too fantastic stories. Money Games is a tale of one of the most successful buyout deals ever: the acquisition and turnaround of what used to be Korea’s largest bank by the American firm Newbridge Capital. This insider’s account is told by the chief architect of the deal itself, the celebrated author and private equity investor Weijian Shan. With billions of dollars at stake, and the nation’s economic future on the line, Newbridge Capital sought to become the first foreign firm in history to take control of one of Korea’s most beloved financial institutions. In a proud country still reeling from a humiliating International Monetary Fund bailout in the Asian Financial Crisis, Newbridge Capital had to muster every ounce of skill, determination, and patience to bring the deal to closing. Shan takes readers inside the battle to win control of the bank―a delicate, often exasperating process that meant balancing the goals of Newbridge with those of the government, bank employees, and Korea’s powerful industrial titans. Finally, the author describes how Newbridge transformed and rebuilt the struggling bank into a shining example of modern banking―as well as a massively profitable investment. Out of the Gobi draws a vivid picture of the raw human energy and the will to succeed against all odds. Shan only finished elementary school when Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution tore his country apart. He was a witness to the brutality and absurdity of Mao’s policies during one of the most tumultuous eras in China’s history. Exiled to the Gobi Desert at age 15 and denied schooling for 10 years, he endured untold hardships without ever giving up his dream for an education. Shan’s improbable journey, from the Gobi to the “People’s Republic of Berkeley” and far beyond, is a uniquely American success story – told with a splash of humor, deep insight and rich and engaging detail. This powerful and personal perspective on China and America will inform Americans’ view of China, humanizing the country, while providing a rare view of America from the prism of a keen foreign observer who lived the American dream. Bio: Weijian Shan is chairman and CEO of PAG, a leading Asia-focused private equity firm. Prior to PAG, he was a partner of the private equity firm TPG, and co-managing partner of TPG Asia (formerly known as Newbridge Capital). Over two decades, Weijian Shan has led a number of landmark transactions that have returned billions of dollars in profit to his firms’ investors. Previously, Shan was a managing director of JP Morgan, and an assistant professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. In his youth, he spent several years working as a laborer in the Gobi Desert of China.

Ep. 922: Dan Sullivan Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
Have you ever had a new idea or a goal that excites you…but not enough time to execute it? What about a goal you really want to accomplish…but can’t because instead of taking action, you procrastinate? Do you feel like the only way things are going to get done is if you do them? But what if it wasn’t that way? What if you had a team of people around you that helped you accomplish your goals? When we want something done, we’ve been trained to ask ourselves: “How can I do this?” Well, there is a better question to ask. One that unlocks a whole new world of ease and accomplishment.

Ep. 920: Christian Busch Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio
Good luck isn’t just chance—it can be learned and leveraged—and The Serendipity Mindset explains how you can use serendipity to make life better at work, at home—everywhere. Many of us believe that the great turning points and opportunities in our lives happen by chance, that they’re out of our control. Often we think that successful people—and successful companies and organizations—are simply luckier than the rest of us. Good fortune—serendipity—just seems to happen to them. Is that true? Or are some people better at creating the conditions for coincidences to arise and taking advantage of them when they do? How can we connect the dots of seemingly random events to improve our lives? Christian Busch explains that serendipity isn’t about luck in the sense of simple randomness. It’s about seeing links that others don’t, combining these observations in unexpected and strategic ways, and learning how to detect the moments when apparently random or unconnected ideas merge to form new opportunities. Busch explores serendipity from a rational and scientific perspective and argues that there are identifiable approaches we can use to foster the conditions to let serendipity grow. Drawing from biology, chemistry, management, and information systems, and using examples of people from all walks of life, Busch illustrates how serendipity works and explains how we can train our own serendipity muscle and use it to turn the unexpected into opportunity. Once we understand serendipity, Busch says, we become curators of it, and luck becomes something that no longer just happens to us—it becomes a force that we can grasp, shape, and hone. Bio: Dr. Christian Busch teaches at New York University (NYU) and the London School of Economics (LSE). At NYU, he directs the Global Economy programme of the Center for Global Affairs.
