I love Jonny Burgess! Even if he did almost get me fired. I first had Jonny on the SIV podcast back in 2014. He had just written and published his book You Can Too. The book details his start in the Voluntary Benefits arena and the challenges he had to overcome. (Apparently, his kids wanted to eat […]
I don’t know about you, but if I’m being completely honest and transparent, I haven’t done a very good job saving for retirement during my career. About 7-8 years ago I got serious and started to find ways to invest in my future. After talking to this week’s podcast guest, Daniel Blue, I realized that […]
“Every dollar you write off saves you 30 cents in taxes.” I don’t know about you, but I am NOT a fan of the IRS. We have tangled more than once and surprisingly I have yet to win, sigh… Today’s guest Elizabeth Hale is a CPA that specializes in business accounting. She is definately a […]
“40% of millionaires are 1st generation immigrants.” – Ken Coleman I met Ken through a series of events and I am so thankful to connect with him. He has challenged my thinking and I‘m relatively sure he will yours as well. I’m really interested in finding out if you are a 5% er. Leave a […]
“Before you shift your mindset, you have to clear the mindsh*t.” Today’s guest, Andy Neary, was introduced to me by our mutual friend and frequent podcast guest Eric Silverman. I’ve got to tell you, I loved doing this interview. On the Success Is Voluntary podcast we often talk about mindset or we do a deep […]
“We get out of life what we put into the lives of other people.” I first met Eric Hemati in early November of 2018 and knew immediately that we were kindred spirits. Since then we have probably spent 20-30 hours on the phone together. The more I talk to Eric, the more I realize that […]
Training is something we do, not something we did. I first talked to Brad Lea 6 years ago when I reached out to him about a tweet he had posted. We spoke for nearly an hour and he explained his training technology platform, Light Speed VT, and how it was completely changing the way organizations […]
All we have to do is change everything. I’ve known today’s guest Eric Silverman for a long time. When we had him on last time he sparked some controversy with some of his opinions and thoughts around where he thinks the Voluntary Benefits industry, or as he calls it enhanced benefits, is headed. Well if […]
The A,B,C,D,Es of Selling I first met Wes Schaeffer at a convention in Phoenix back in 2014. He was just starting to get some real traction in his business and he has exploded from there. His “The Sales Podcast” is one of my must listen to podcasts and he has taught me a ton! You […]
The Power Of Focus I have listened to John Lee Dumas’ (or JLD as he likes to be called) Entrepreneur On Fire podcast for several years. I have to be honest with you, I can’t keep up.  John literally produces a new podcast seven days a week! When I just checked today, he had produced […]
I was introduced to today’s guest, Gerry Sandusky by my good friend Eric Silverman. And just to be clear from the very beginning, this is not the same Jerry Sandusky that was convicted of child molestation while a football coach a Penn State. Ok. We got that out of the way. This Gerry is the […]
I was introduced to today’s guest, Dov Gordon by Bob Burg. Bob appeared on the SIV podcast a couple of weeks back and I am thrilled to get Dov on so soon. Bob had him on his podcast and I found their conversation to be fascinating and couldn’t wait to get to dive in deeper […]
I was first introduced to Randy Gage through his book, Why You Are Dumb, Sick and Broke… And How to Get Smart, Healthy and Rich! I ran across it in an airport bookstore early in 2008 and bought it immediately. Ehhhh… For a friend.. yes a friend… That it!  Just for a friend… The truth […]
I promise that today’s guest is going to make you think!  Larry Winget bills himself as the Pitbull of Personal Development. But whatever you do, don’t call him a motivational speaker. According to Larry, he is the world’s only irritational speaker. I almost guarantee you that over the next 40 minutes, Larry is going to […]
I first heard of John Ruhlin while listening to John O’Leary’s Live Inspired podcast. I immediately bought his book Giftology on Amazon and loved it!!! As you may know, I read about a book a week and many of them are in the sales or sales leadership arena. Often these authors take ideas from previous […]
I first met today’s guest at least 12 years ago. Bob Burg was hired by my team to teach from his book Endless Referrals. His speech inspired me and his book influenced me to make referrals my central marketing focus. As important and as timeless as Endless Referrals has been, Bob teamed up with John […]
I love talking to smart, dynamic people. Especially people that I can learn from. Today’s guest is certainly that! When former podcast guest, Andrea Waltz recommended Patrick to me I had never heard of him. Once he and I talked, I felt like I had known him forever. He is the living embodiment of his […]
Today’s guest is the world champion of public speaking. Did you even know that was a thing? Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, Mark Brown migrated to the United States at 18 years old with only $40 in his pocket and a dream for a better life. Today, he has become one of the most popular inspirational […]
I’ve known today’s guest Eric Silverman for a long time now. We have never worked in the same hierarchy. In fact, we worked on opposite sides of the country. Instead of working together, I got to know Eric through appearing on numerous panels together, and winning company sponsored trips and attending conferences. The more I […]
I was introduced to Brett Davenport by my friend, and past podcast guest, Gary Hoy. Brett has had a very successful career in the financial services arena through recruiting and building teams. Even though we come from very different ends of the financial services spectrum, our philosophies around recruiting and training are incredibly similar. I […]
