If you’re tired of struggling in key areas of your life, this approach will help you overcome and flourish in your work, relationships, spirituality and health.

Hear on the podcast how this family bootstrapped their beloved family tradition into a cultural phenomenon without the help of publishers and corporations -- and what we can learn from their enduring success and unique company culture. If Chanda and her family can do this with a fictional story, imagine what you can do with yours. Listen now!

The religious was OK. I didn't agree with all of it, but you need to include actual context, because atheism is not the only acceptable religion. Other people will have other context.

Most of the US Army generals that I worked for fit in the category you are describing as a spanning leader.

This is one of the best interviews I've ever listened to. Not only informative about crypto currency, but also about life. The last part of the interview was the best.
