Hail To The Junk King: How Brian Scudamore Turns Trash Into Gold

There’s a man who collects junk for a living. And he’s made millions in the process.

As a walking, talking, breathing, sneezing King Midas protégé who’s known to surround himself with rusty ovens, dusty desks, and musty mattresses, he’s clearly very unique – every piece of junk he touches turns into gold.

His part-mythological, part-entrepreneurial touch transformed an upstart company (originally founded by a few shaggy-haired college kids with an equally shaggy pickup truck) into an international powerhouse called 1-800-GOT-JUNK?.

Just who exactly is this proverbial King Midas and what’s his story?

Forget About Siri Or Alexa: Try #TheAskCharlieShow Instead

Got questions? You’ll find that Siri will field your fine dining dilemmas, upcoming weather quandaries, traffic jam plights, and standard assortment of day-to-day lifestyle related queries with aplomb.

But try asking Siri how to differentiate your product from the competition. Or how to deal with conflict in the workplace. Or how to go about delegating vital tasks to employees.

I’m willing to wager that you’ll be left staring at the blank screen of your iPhone with an equally blank look on your face. And don’t fool yourself by thinking that Amazon’s newfangled Alexa will be much of a help. There’s a better solution.

Enter #TheAskCharlieShow.

The Best Of Everything: Reading About North Korea On My iPhone At LTB 2015

Did you hear? Apple is releasing the new iPhone 6S soon.

Snore.

Hey. Did you read about Kim Jong Un’s latest rant against America?

Sniff.

Wow. They’re saying LTB 2015 is happening on July 8th.

Boiing!

Okay, you’ve got my attention.

Predictable headlines and banal captions are ideal for topics involving technology geeks camping outside Apple stores in flimsy tents and despotic dictators bent on fashioning nuclear bombs out of paper clips. But when it comes to describing a game-changing movement that has impacted so many lives and helped countless entrepreneurs from our community flourish? Now that’s worth an exclamation point or two.

Planning Ahead & Thinking Big: The Bill Gates Technique

I spent this past week in Arizona – and it wasn’t for vacation or relaxation purposes. Rather, it was to take part in a special mastermind group.

People flew in from across the USA to attend. The group seemed to be made of entrepreneurs of all ages… and in similar growth stages of business. We sat together in a big room and got right to work. Everybody spent hours learning, analyzing, discussing and strategizing how to go about advancing their business goals and career objectives.

Perhaps you think that leaving the office for nearly an entire week might be a little bit too intense. “Was the whole trip really necessary?” you may be asking yourself. To say it was productive would be an understatement. Truthfully, it baffles me as to why every single businessperson in today’s marketplace doesn’t spend just one week out of a whole a year attending a mastermind group to focus on planning ahead.

Of course, when I talk about planning ahead, I don’t only mean technical things like crunching numbers or crafting contingency plans.

I’m talking about thinking big.
