Interview with Miha Matlievski

Interview with Miha Matlievski

July 13, 2020

One business coach has forged his approach to helping entrepreneurs and business executives by using a monumental personal failure and eventual redemption to help get others where they need to go to find their personal success and fulfillment.

At just 18 years old, Miha Matlievski, a Slovenian high school dropout, dreamed of becoming a successful entrepreneur. And he pursued it with a passion, putting in 12 years of hard work that resulted in four successful businesses and a personal net worth of $15M.

But in December 2009, an unexpected call from his bank, which had decided to foreclose on his real estate investments, brought his world crashing down around him. That one negative event instigated an avalanche of ruin for him and his businesses, resulting in his four, once-successful companies going bankrupt.

Featured Interview with Tamara Ghandour

July 10, 2020

Tamara Ghandour, author, podcaster, keynote speaker and founder of innovation training company, LaunchStreet, used to believe that innovation was the domain of a select few, exclusive to certain industries, or relegated to a specific job role. But, as Tamara discovered in her 25 years of work and research, everybody has the capacity to innovate. It's a person's unique innovation style, (which can be assessed and channeled), that can transform inertia into innovation.

Drawing on eye-opening data from her proprietary Innovation Quotient Edge Assessment, Innovation is Everybody's Business is for those looking for solutions to the daily pain of "how do I prove my worth," a reality for many people whether they work in the C-Suite or on the front-lines. This book will resonate with those that recognize that being more innovative is their ticket to being indispensable. It is also for leaders under pressure to build a culture of innovation but don't know how. As organizations face pressure to innovate, the accountability for making it happen falls on senior and mid-level leaders. They are told what to do, but not how to do it. This book will give them a tool to build a team of innovators who make an impact every day in big and small ways.

T in Burnout Stands For Time

T in Burnout Stands For Time

July 6, 2020

Last on the BURNOUT acronym series is the letter T, and that's for time.

One of the biggest challenges that many people face is they say that they don't have enough time. Last time I checked, everyone gets the same amount of time every day. It's how we choose to spend our time. The key is really to know how you choose to spend your time.

Your Stories Don't Define You, How You Tell Them Will, is Sarah Elkin's new book  Sarah says "I've learned that most people don't recognize the importance of personal storytelling, and cannot pinpoint a specific incident to share to inspire and connect."

What internal messages are holding you back? What stories are you sharing that confirm those messages, and impact the perceptions of the people around you? Your Stories Don’t Define You, How You Tell Them Will will help you uncover where those messages came from and the patterns they have created in your life, create context around them, and shift them to benefit you, your relationships, and your career. Story sharing isn’t just about entertainment and persuasion. When you share the right personal story at the right time and with the right audience, you connect more authentically and open the door for real positive impact. Whether you’re sharing personal stories or business stories, the stories you share and how you share them shape your identity and have the power to bring out the stories of others. What personal stories will you uncover using the exercises in this book?

U in Burnout Stands For Upheaval

U in Burnout Stands For Upheaval

June 29, 2020

Next up in the BURNOUT acronym is the letter U for upheaval.

Burnout can create a situation where your life is completely upside down, and create upheaval all of your life. When I had my burnout in 2009/10, you can say that my life was upside down and an upheaval took place. For those of you that are not familiar with my over a period of time over 369 days, I had a heart attack that should have killed me. I lost my job during an economic recession. The family vehicle was repossessed. And then finally our home was foreclosed. All in a year. I don't want anybody to go through that. It was not fun for my family or myself to experience those losses. But we did. And as I said in an earlier post, burnout is a choice.
