It's All About the Questions

Entrepreneurial journeys rarely go in a straight line. They have detours, divergences and often life outside the work journey impacts thinking, action and final goals. When one journey ends, another might start along the same path or go in a completely different direction. My guest on this episode is Vered Neta. A multi-hyphenate entrepreneur who has done several successful exits from companies she has created, Vered is now on a new journey that she chose because she wanted a new challenge. When that new path threw up a lot of road blocks, she pivoted and created another successful divergence....

It's All About the Questions

What can one say about John David Mann? He has mastered, well he wouldn't say that, but I would, writing non-fiction, parable and fiction writing. He has also shown us how a marriage can be lived fully and be written about, how to start your own school, and how to run a business with over 100,000 people. And those are just a few of his achievements to date. My favorite is that he has launched almost every book he has written or co-authored on my show since 2015. Yup, that one is special to me because his words lift my spirits, awaken my brain and bring me joy. Well not just to me but to over 3...

Norm LeMay is an entrepreneur, educator, and philosopher. Thanks to his unique approach to management, he spent thirty years of his storied career helping to convert his family’s business--a waste management company that his father picked up in a swap for an old truck--into an asset worth more than $300 million. Through hard work and foresight, LeMay became a pioneer in recycling, transforming the State of Washington into one of the most efficient recycling areas in the United States.
