I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

“We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

As a small business owner, leader, and person, I can spend a lot of time on things that really don't provide any value OR don't bring me any joy.  Actually, just the opposite.  They can stress me out and zap all of my energy.

On this episode, I'm talking with A.J. Sue.  He's a small business coach and really cool guy.  We talk a lot about how to divest yourself of things that aren't working for you and to focus in on the things that you like, what you're good at, and what will provide the real value....in your life and in your leadership.

I know you'll dig him as much as I did.  We had a lot of fun!

CHEERS!
