If you’re a small business owner, you obviously want to create a profitable company. But have you ever stepped back to ask – really and truly – why you want to be financially successful? The ability to answer that question might be the difference between prosperity and failure.
It’s one thing to want to make money; it’s quite another to think about why making money is important to you. Dean Mercado, the Founder, and CEO of Online Marketing Muscle and Best Selling Author of The MINDStretch: 49 Inspiring Insights for Business Breakthroughs, suggests that answering this question may be the key to growing your business more than you ever thought possible. Join Meny as he and Dean talk about why the “Why” matters, Dean’s recommendation that a small business owner should make himself unnecessary, the secrets to finding a good business coach, the importance of having an accountability partner, and much more.
What exactly is a Chief Evangelist? In business, we’ve embraced the idea that customers can be evangelists, but it’s important to remember that employees and business builders can be evangelists too. Our guest, Guy Kawasaki, is the Chief Evangelist at Canva, a title that he explains can only work if the product can change the world—or at least a significant part of it. He’s the host of the Remarkable People Podcast, an executive fellow of the Haas School of Business (UC Berkeley), author of 15 popular books, and an adjunct professor of the University of New South Wales. As a former revolutionary at Apple, Guy popularized the concept of evangelizing in the technology business, and his ideas behind this concept have spread like wildfire.

This interview has been months in the planning, and I’m so excited I can finally share it with you all. I had the honor of interviewing Gino Wickman, creator of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) and the Founder of EOS Worldwide. He is a bestselling author of several books, including Traction and most recently, Entrepreneurial Leap: Do You Have What It Takes To Become An Entrepreneur? Gino founded Entrepreneurial Leap with the mission to give people the tools to decide whether entrepreneurship is the right path for them and how to go after their dreams.
In our interview, Gino and I discussed his journey in developing the EOS system and what he has learned is the most important mind shift a leader must make to make their organization successful. We discussed entrepreneurship—the six essential traits of every entrepreneur, how to identify whether entrepreneurship is in your DNA, and the different ways that one can pursue the entrepreneurial path.
If you’re currently an entrepreneur, thinking about becoming an entrepreneur, or wondering if entrepreneurship is right for you, I encourage you to give this one a listen!
