Marc Allen
Marc talks with Jim about how he came to transition from the performing arts to business. Marc talks about how his 5 year plan took 10 years to complete. He worked other jobs while he was developing his business. Marc also introduces us to what he calls "Your ideal scene". This is an excellent interview for those who are in a hurry to start a small business.
Randy, who is legally blind, joins Jim to help us focus on what we see, and what we don't see as we manage our businesses day-to-day. They take a caller who offers his ideas on the subject of focus, which provides a great opportunity for Randy to contribute his thoughts and advice on the caller's specific example. Randy also explains the power of a view point, both positive AND negative view points. Powerful information. Outstanding dialogue. Don't miss this one.
Steve Chandler
First visit for Steve. He helps Jim develop the concept of reinventing yourself and your business. They begin talking about the things that get in the way of this process, like preoccupation, not delegating, and lack of focus. They move on to talk about the difference between being an owner and being a victim, and a number of other valuable ways to reinvent yourself and your business. Steve also introduces the radical concept of looking after your employees first, and your customers second.
Kelle Olwyler
Kelle and Jim talk about how to not lose yourself as you are building your business. One way, Kelle says, is to understand how to draw on some of our hidden strengths that we might not be aware of. Kelle also says that our weaknesses can be our greatest gifts (really), if we can learn how to identify them and use them to our advantage.
Kelle Olwyler
This is our first visit with Kelle, who coaches high performance individuals. Kelle defines paradoxical thinking, and then explains how to use it in your small business as you attempt to balance all of the elements of your life. Don't miss this interview, especially if you are not getting as much out of your personal and professional life as you think you should be.
