Have you ever struggled to make payroll? Have you ever stressed over taking your business to the next level? Well, most entrepreneurs have been there before; however, it does not have to be that way. Drew Pearson, Owner of Ninja Multimedia, shares his journey so that it may help you. Drew took a chance by attending an event with me. Afterwards, we had one coaching session to fine-tune his strategy so that he could turn around his business. Drew has always done excellent work, (and gotten lots of referrals) but he needed to change his business development approach. Listen to Drew tell you how he turned around his business so that he could be proactive in his sales strategy.

Have you ever been told that what you wanted to accomplish is impossible? Well today's guest on the show was told her idea was impossible by countless numbers. At the age of 23, Molly Ola Pinney wanted to start a global non-profit that served the autistic children of the world. Yes, this is a big undertaking that had many challenges yet Molly would not accept that it was impossible. She kept focused on a vision that would empower a generation to understand and accept autism. I truly believe this is a story of the seemingly impossible to a journey that will inspire many to think big.

Being curious is underrated. We grow up as children with curiosity raging inside of us. We ask questions to some of the simplest things; however, as we get older many of us replace curiosity with knowing. It is great to KNOW something, yet don't underestimate the value of being curious. Chris Guillebeau, NY Times and Wall St. Journal best selling author, shares how he uses “curiosity” to grow his business, create products and even write books. We talk about many other aspects of business growth too so join us and be sure to leave a comment too.
