How Podcasting Can Help You Grow Your Online Course Business And Sell More Digital Products

Podcasts are one of the most powerful ways to build rapport with your audience and one of the best ways to build a brand and market and sell digital products, especially online courses.

Once you have figured out how to create an online course that sells and you are ready to set it on autopilot, you need to make a decision on how to drive consistent traffic to your core piece of content.Podcasting is a great way to do that.

Podcasts are a place where youll find people with long attention spans, who interested in your niche and are craving more information. Why would they be subscribed if they werent? Podcasting is the ultimate place to sell digital products, because theres an engaged audience and you get to network with other awesome people in your space.

Your listeners spend some of their most intimate time with you while they are either driving their car, going for a walk, getting ready for work, working out at the gym or before they head to bed. This builds what Joel Brown, the founder of the Addicted2Success podcast calls "the best friend effect."Most course creators are fighting to be seen and heard on social media, and this can be an expensive and exhausting game to play. In an email interview, Brown wrote that All you need is to record an ad for your course, which will be placed at the start of each episode. As each listener gets to know you and becomes familiar with your voice, they will remember you next time they are looking for a course to join. Not to mention if they are listening to a lot of episodes back-to-back they will hear your ad multiple times, which in turn makes it more likely they will eventually purchase your course if they believe you have a solution for them."

You become a well-versed speaker when you commit to a high volume of episode creation. If you are a coach,a podcast is a powerful value exchange you get to offer other coaches, speakers and authors, which will allow you to build a network of friends in your industry.

Podcasts are a place where you can establish yourself as an expert through the power of hijacking other peoples audiences, as Russel Brunson would say.Using the power of other peoples audiences by getting influential guests on your show can instantly build your credibility and authority in the industry.

Brown managed to get huge namessuch as Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Jay Shetty, Gary Vaynerchuk, Tim Ferriss, Grant Cardone, Gabrielle Bernstein, Lisa Nichols, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Brendon Burchard, Bob Proctor, John Assaraf and more through a combination of perseverance and luck. His podcast has been downloaded more than fourmillion times, and the YouTube videos of his podcast episodes have more than two million views.

I messaged Gary Vaynerchuk and told him I would purchase25 copies of his book Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hookand give them away as a competition on my social media channels in return for a quick 20-minute video interview," Brown wrote to me. "He loved the idea and said yes."

"I set a calendar reminder in my phone on the 21st of each month for 12 months straight to remind me to try another way to get in touch with Tony Robbins," he wrote."It took nine months and nine attempts until I finally got a yesfrom Tony. By the time he agreed, he had heard my name and Addicted2Success mentioned to him a few times from a few gatekeepers. It was perfect timing as his new book Money: Master The Gamehad just come out."

"John Assaraf, who was in the hit movie The Secret, was running a Masterclass to promote one of his courses," Brown told me."I put myself in his shoes and knew that he would need support to get as many subscribers as possible to fill his course. I offered to promote his course to my social media followers and email list, which at the time had 30,000 subscribers. He said yes."

For Addicted2Success, traction picked up very quickly once it hit 10,000 downloads per month. That kind of success isachievable when you have a solid game plan and strategy to consistently get all-star guests on your platform and are promoting each episode to your audiencemultiple times. It helps even more when you ask and encourage people to share your episodes with their friends, fans and followers too.

This more quickly you grow and the more listeners you have, the more you'll be picked up by podcast algorithms. That helps you rank in the top charts on Apple's podcast app and get featured on the main page of Soundcloud, for example.

Lets take the closer look at Scot Chrismanspodcast, The Athletic Stance,which focuses on mindset, nutrition, fitness and more for skiers.I was blessed to see a lot of traction quickly," Chrisman wrote in an email."It was the top podcast in sports on iTunes within 90 days. I was able to interview a lot of the best skiers and influential minds in skiing think of the Tony Hawks or the Michael Jordans of the skiing world including two-time Olympic gold medalist and six-time world championDavid Wise and 16-year-old bronze medal winner Nico Porteous. Getting these athletes on the show was a matter of persistence and passion. I sent out lots of requests, and I literally only got one no. The rest just ignored me if they didnt want to be a part of it. It helped that I was an up-and-coming pro, but it didnt mean it was always easy.

Coaches, consultantsand course creators can hugely benefit from starting a podcast, because it encourages them to create "Gary Vee-style" content that can then be broken down, multipliedand posted across social media platforms and blogs. To be able to keep selling online courses consistently, you need as much content as possible.

Podcasting is a great practice for speaking about your topic, diving into your expertise, creating content regularlyand systematically syndicating it out through multiple mediums.

So, when are you starting your podcast?

Even Though He Hasn’t Visited Ohio State, TreVeyon Henderson Has Become One of the Top Leaders in the Buckeyes – Eleven Warriors

Posted: at 4:52 pm

without comments

While the rest of us are sitting around binge-watching movies, Netflix shows and old games, TreVeyon Henderson hasnt had much time or interest for that.

Instead, the Ohio State running back commit has been diving nose-first into the written word.

When he hasnt beenbusy with his three-times-a-day workout load, Henderson hasread several books over the past few months. On Tuesday afternoon, the five-star prospects latest page-turner was Grant Cardones Be Obsessed or Be Average, a motivational book recommended to him by Hopewell (Va.) assistant coach Greg Taylor about how the self-made millionaire Cardone created a better life for himself.

It teaches you to be your best and how to set your goals and achieve those goals of what you wanna do and what you wanna be like dont let anybody get in the way of that, Henderson told Eleven Warriors.

Henderson is already a forward-thinking and motivated person one who has worked his way into becoming the top dog among 2021 running backs, one who is continually putting in work to maintain that status and one who wants to winthree national championships when he gets to Ohio State.

Those types of goals and the motivation to work for them are a couple traits that Henderson says the Buckeyes look for in their players.

Its hard to explain it but its essentially being elite and not being average, said Henderson when asked what the coaching staff wants in its players. Thats basically the message. Ohio State wants elite people that wanna be great. They dont want average. They want people who wanna be great and who wanna be leaders and wanna show other people the way.

That message from Ryan Day, Tony Alford and Co. falls perfectly in line with the message from Hendersons latest reading expedition.

And a leader isprecisely what Hendersonsbecome.

Ever since his commitment in March, the Virginia star almost instantly thrust himself into the upper echelon group with Jack Sawyer, Kyle McCord and Ben Christman as one of the top leaders of the Buckeyes 2021 recruiting class, making pitch after pitch to some of Ohio States top-tier remaining targets while building and maintaining relationships with many of them. That includes guys like Jordan Hancock, J.T. Tuimoloau, Emeka Egbuka and Derrick Davis Jr.

I look at myself as a leader, Henderson said. I always talk about how great we can be and that theres so much we can accomplish together. Because I feel like theres so much we can accomplish, just with how tight and how close we are.

Added McCord: As soon as he committed, he dove in 100 percent, and hes been recruiting everyone that weve been going after. Its been great to have him on board since March. To have him on board is something thats definitely helped us and given us momentum recruiting-wise.

Its not just that Henderson is a class leader. Of course the second-highest-ranked player of the entire 18-man group should be, the program would hope, one of the key faces and voices recruiting others.

RELATED The Hurry-Up: TreVeyon Henderson Getting Faster and Adding Muscle This Offseason, Enjoying Life Without Recruiting Stress, Planning Ohio State Visit Soon

Its that hes doing this without ever having been to the Woody Hayes Athletic Center, breathed in the Shoes atmosphere, taken a tour around the Oval or walked the sidewalk up and down High Street.

It might be unique or out of the ordinary that hes been such a strong advocate for Ohio State without ever having visited. But it might actually be giving the Buckeyes an extra pitch on the recruiting trail.

Having TreVeyon committed without visiting is something we can almost use to our advantage, McCord told Eleven Warriors. If we can get a five-star running back to commit to us and be the second running back in the class, withEvan (Pryor)already being committed, I think that says a lot about the coaching staff and how confident one of the best players in America is.

TreVeyon couldve easily gone to a school he already visited, and he couldve been the guy at that school not that he wont be the guy at Ohio State; he definitely will as the only running back they took in that class. But for him to commit without ever visiting us, says a lot about TreVeyon as a person.

McCords last words there are where we can dig further into why and how Henderson has been at the forefront of the Buckeyes recruits-recruiting-recruits effort.

Henderson has been playing football since he was 6 years old. Hes rushed for more than 20 touchdowns and 1,000-plus yards every year since he started playing, he says, and that on-field production has brought with it almost an obligation to lead.

But that hasnt been an issue for him.

Ive always been a leader, to be honest, Henderson said. Not just in this class but on my team, also. In nearly everything I do, Ive always been a leader. I always think about what I feel is right since I was younger, since Ive been playing football.

As soon as he committed, he dove in 100 percent, and hes been recruiting everyone that weve been going after. Its been great to have him on board since March. kyle mccord on fellow ohio state commit treveyon henderson

Day and director of player personnel Mark Pantoni dont have to tell Henderson or any other commit to go out and recruit another player. It just happens organically.

When Coach Day checks on you, hell ask, How does such-and-such feel about us? Henderson said. And then Ill tell him, I think weve got a great chance of landing him. Hell just tell me to stay on him and things like that. We mainly hit them up ourselves. Nobody has to tell us.

As it stands today, their efforts have helped the Buckeyes piece together the countrys top-ranked class with six months to go before the early signing period. Theres still a lot of work left to do, but they remain the frontrunner to signthe programs first No. 1-ranked recruiting class in the composite ranking era.

The recruits dont care about winning that championship, though. Theyve got their sights on getting the right players into the class to help them win actual titles at Ohio State.

Were not really looking forward to having the No. 1 class, Henderson said.We just want people who are gonna be part of something special and who wanna help us win games. People who just wanna come be great at The Ohio State University.

Graduating college during the pandemic? These business titans have some advice for you – USA TODAY

Graduating from college can be confusing and challenging in the best of times, not to mention a post-COVID-19 world. If youre graduating this year, listen to the recommendations and encouragement these business leaders and Advisors in The Oracles have for you.

1. Pursue what you love.

The advice I always give college graduates is more relevant than ever. This is the best time in your life to take risks and pursue what you love, whether thats trying to become Beyonc, starting a business, or something else. Identify the person you aspire to be and offer to work for them for free. Find a second job to make money, and move home with your parents to cut expenses if needed. If you must take an unfulfilling job, pursue your passion on the side. In my 20s, I didnt spend money on unnecessary stuff; I worked hard doing what I loved. Thats how you have a good life.

2. Go the extra mile to become valuable.

Your education is just beginning, so never stop learning. Read and study every day. Get a job rather than staying at home with your parents. Find out who knows big players at the company where you want to work and then get in front of them (digitally, if needed). Its tough in this economy; so you must bring value to the world, demonstrate how you can drive revenue, and go the extra mile.

Become great at what you do because there is no money in average. Have the mentality that if its going to be, its up to me, and that you must get it done now. Finally, never lower your goals because they seem too big. Id say good luck, but the reality is you create your own luck.

3. Dont be afraid.

All times are challenging. Growth lies in the challenges, so prepare for the worst and work toward the best. Dont fear the future. There are more opportunities now than ever, so its the perfect time to enter your most productive years. Action eliminates doubt, and experience is the real education. So start experiencing jobs and projects that interest you. Dont wait for the perfect opportunity because theres no such thing.

Take care of yourself. Eat, sleep, move, and play well. Keep it simple; avoid overcommitment and constant distraction. Make time to meditate, breathe deeply, and contemplate the true nature of things every day. The egocentric age is over. Were all in this together; so serve others and do no harm.

4. Become the best person for the job.

With fewer jobs to go around, its more important than ever to focus on excellence and being the best at what you do. Approach job interviews asking how you can fix a problem for the company, not what the company can offer you.

Aspiring YouTubers often blame the algorithm if their videos dont perform well instead of asking how they could improve. The YouTube algorithm is built to recommend the best videos; so if it isnt promoting yours, it probably isnt the best. If you dont get a job, its usually for the same reason: because someone else did it better. So adopt a mindset of continuous improvement.

5. Put your degree to the future test.

Ask yourself: Does your degree pass the future test? Many industries are going to look quite different as the world changes and technology automates jobs. Is your industry innovating? Focus on the future, even if that means pursuing a different career. I know you invested a lot in your degree, but dont be stubborn.

The first and fastest to meet the hockey puck where its going will be successful, and theres always a hybrid solution that fits the market. For example, if you have a law degree, consider creating legal technology. With so much change happening, theres no better time to be yourself and choose what you truly want to do. When you do, money and happiness will follow.

6. Make a video to show employers who you are.

Culture fit is more important than skills to me, and to most companies. Before I bother to read your rsum, Ill ask you questions to get to know you and whether youre a fit. To help potential employers get to know you, create a video about yourself that you can share with them.

Do something you love. Dont apply for jobs because of money; apply for ones you will sink into and enjoy. Find something that makes you want to work weekends and look forward to Mondays. Then if you work hard, recognition and money will follow.

7. Dont worry if your path is unconventional.

The path to success is never a straight line. Its OK if your dreams (and your journey to reach them) are unconventional, just like your graduation. Find a career you love, not only one that pays the bills. You may go through some jobs you dont like to learn the lessons that will get you to your calling. Work hard, ask questions, learn from mentors, and do the hard jobs to find out what you like and what you dont. Then your calling will come loud and clear. Follow it.

8. Remember: youre just as qualified as anyone else in this new world.

Its not the strongest who survive, but those who can adapt to change. Were all equal in times of change because no one is truly prepared or comfortable with change. Were all newbies in this new world, where you are just as experienced as a senior executive and as qualified to succeed. Some people are just better at hiding their insecurity and fear of failure. But there is nothing to fear; change is an opportunity.

So, be bold and go big. Let nothing hold you back. If you fail, fail hard. Then dust yourself off and try again. Embrace failure, which is necessary. Dont try to fail, but dont cut yourself off from success by fearing it either. When times are tough, you become a better, stronger, and more humble person with a better story to tell. Life is worth living, so embrace it.

How to weather the Coronavirus storm: 9 business leaders share their best advice – USA TODAY

Posted: May 6, 2020 at 7:47 pm

without comments

The Oracles Published 2:54 p.m. ET May 5, 2020

Being an entrepreneur is challenging. Being an entrepreneur in the age of COVID-19 is even more challenging.(Photo: The Oracles)

The world is in a crisis unlike anything most of us have ever seen, and its easy to become overwhelmed with anxiety and uncertainty. We asked these leaders and Advisors in The Oracles for their best advice to weather the storm.

Heres what they said.

As a parent of two teenagers, my best advice is we need to stay calm for our kids and lead by example. Dont go out and interact with too many people.While its important to stay connected with friends and family, Im doing that via phone, text, and email.

Stay safe and well! Gretchen Carlson, founder of the Gift of Courage Fund, named one of Time magazines 100 Most Influential People in the World, New York Times bestselling author of Be Fierce, and inspiration for the movie Bombshell.

When things seem out of control, control what you can: your time, energy, attitude, and resources. Create discipline in your schedule and be intentional about when you wake up and go to sleep.

I go to bed at 9 p.m. and get up before the sun rises, so I get eight hours of sleep. When I wake up, I write down my goals and go to the gym. I dont watch TV for more than an hour, avoid the news as much as possible, and read for self-enhancement an hour each day. Grant Cardone, founder of Cardone Capital, a $2 billion real estate empire; follow Grant on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

As a Navy SEAL leader, I learned to thrive in a crisis with the PBTA Tool. First, Pause and listen. Eliminate distractions and take a moment to check in with your intuition. Next, Breathe deeply to calm down and take stock of what is really going on.

These first steps will clear your mind and help you focus and tap into the powerful intelligence of your gut and heart. Then you can begin to Think better, merging that gut and heart intelligence with rational thinking for optimal results keeping in mind that your first thought is likely a conditioned reaction. The final step is to Act boldly. Dont wait for the perfect plan. Choose the most viable target and move toward it. Trust yourself, your team, and our collective entrepreneurial spirit to solve these problems. Weve done it before, and well do it again. Mark Divine, retired U.S. Navy SEAL commander, NYT & WSJ bestselling author, and founder of Unbeatable Mind and SEALFIT; follow Unbeatable Mind on Facebook and YouTube

When Isaac Newton had to stay home during the Great Plague of London in 1665, he made discoveries in calculus and began understanding gravity. While the world is forever changed, our ability to be creative, stay nimble, and uncover new ideas and opportunities will leave us stronger than ever. As horrible as this is, I believe good comes from every bad situation if we look for it. For example, while our industry has come to a standstill, retailers are creatively growing e-commerce sites and forging new collaborative relationships, which creates opportunities for the future. Ashley Alderson, founder and CEO of The Boutique Hub and Boutique.Style; cancer survivor, motivational speaker, and host of Boutique Chat; connect with Ashley on Instagram and LinkedIn.

Reflect on whats important to you and reconnect with friends and family. Now is an opportunity for creativity, innovation, and new ways of thinking; so dont limit your imagination. Expand your mind with online learning resources like The Great Courses and CuriosityStream. Look around your house; pick up that guitar or paintbrush you never had time for.

If youre struggling with negativity or fear, stop focusing on yourself. Reflect on how fortunate we are and find empathy for others. Use your skills and knowledge to be a force for good. Dont get mad at the news; focus on solving problems. Then fear will fall away, and youll see more clearly. Remember: the sun is still shining, and we rise by lifting others. Tom Albert, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence expert, and founder and CEO of MeasuredRisk, a leading enterprise risk management company; connect with Tom on LinkedIn

Recessions separate the wheat from the chaff in business. Its much harder to sell when money is scarce. Unfortunately, many businesses will be forced to close their doors due to social distancing. But some digital businesses that could have survived will also close for a different reason: their product was weak. When their customers become choosy, they will no longer choose them.

While its crucial to cut unnecessary expenses to bring in cash flow, dont cut your product development. Now more than ever, you must make it your No. 1 goal to be the best in your market. Sarah Chrisp, founder of Wholesale Ted, one of the largest (over 350,000 subscribers) online educational resources teaching entrepreneurs how to create, grow, and scale successful online stores; started her first online store at 16 years old; follow Sarah on YouTube

Instead of panicking, control the things you can control. I had to travel, but Im careful and hope for the best. Prioritize your spending and conserve where you can. Lean on your mentors and talk to people who are smarter than you. If you have a problem, leverage your network. For example, my friends in the restaurant business didnt offer delivery; so we built them an app and launched a marketing campaign. Theres innovation happening everywhere. Craig Handley, co-founder of ListenTrust and author of Hired to Quit, Inspired to Stay; connect with Craig on LinkedIn

Craig Handley, co-founder of ListenTrust(Photo: The Oracles)

In the face of such uncertainty and anxiety, a leaders first job is to provide clarity from the front lines with steadiness and frequency even if its just sharing that you have no updates. No one has all the answers, but by tapping into your teams collective knowledge, you can determine the best move forward and create a sense of control.

This situation is changing how we live and work, which is challenging for everyone. Be compassionate and honest with your team. Let them pause to feel emotions and handle what they need to. Everything takes more effort during a crisis, so be mindful of your teams energy. Theyll need it when we return to the new business as usual. Michael OBrien, executive business coach, author of Shift: Creating Better Tomorrows, and founder of Peloton Coaching and Consulting and The Pace Line Leadership Academy; connect with Michael on Facebook and LinkedIn

9. Celebrate your wins.

As a leader, Im transparent about what Im thinking and how well continue moving forward. First, we level with our team about the situation and expectations, acknowledging that it will take time to get used to this. Were still adhering to basic policies and protocols and expect everyone to check in regularly, manage their time wisely, and deliver the same stellar work.

Were also making the best of this. Were celebrating our employees accomplishments and offering virtual team-building activities and spaces exclusively to talk about whats happening. Our #viralwins channel invites everyone to brainstorm ways to turn this situation into new opportunities.

3 Top Real Estate Investors Share Their Best Investing Secrets – Motley Fool

Posted: April 2, 2020 at 7:47 am

without comments

How is it that some real estate investors are able to grow their portfolio with one successful investment after another while others are still struggling to turn a profit on their first single-family rental? We wanted to find that out directly from the investors who have been growing their portfolios at an incredible rate.

Luckily, these three investors were willing to share their strategies with us so you can start building your fortune in real estate.

Sarah Larbi, host of the "Where Should I Invest Now?" Podcast and co-founder of the REITE Club, doesn't suggest trying to predict the market and waiting for the right time to invest. She says there are good opportunities in any stage of the market cycle.

"Markets will have ups and downs, and no one has a crystal ball, so it's not wise to wait until that happens. On the downturn and on the upswing there are opportunities. What you want to do instead is to look at market fundamentals and hold for the long term something that cash flows.

"Some of the fundamentals I consider are: immigration to the area, population increase, transportation improvements, postsecondary education nearby, vacancy rates, job growth, a variety of industries, etc. If I buy on those, I will do well in the long term."

Grant Cardone, internationally known entrepreneur and founder of Cardone Capital, looks for properties with the most units. Even for new investors, he recommends buying more units under one roof instead of multiple single-family homes.

"Here are the metrics I look for in every great real estate investment. Notice that price isn't one of them:

Justin Fraser, partner at 88 Real Estate Capital and host of the "True Multifamily Podcast," recommends being open to partnering with other investors on deals. He says that when you have partners, you're able to take advantage of opportunities that you wouldn't be able to on your own.

"Including partners on a real estate deal creates win-win scenarios for everybody. With partners, you are each able to focus on the pieces of the deal that match your skill set or goals. For example, some investors have money but no time to do the legwork that goes into finding and running a deal. Others have the time but not the experience. Matching complementary skills and needs makes the project stronger.

"Many people are resistant to taking on partners in order to keep equity for themselves. However, I'd much rather have a smaller piece, percentage wise, of a property that's many times larger than any project I could do on my own."

Real estate provides opportunities like no other investment, but most people never see the massive success they hoped for. One of the main reasons for this is that they follow the advice of other investors who settled short of their original goals. Study how other investors have built their fortunes, and there's no reason you can't be the next real estate mogul.

It's hard not to get swept up in the panic when the stock market is going crazy, but it is a lot easier if you're invested in real estate. Not only can you benefit from the incredible returns real estate offers, but you can also do so with half the volatility.

That's why we launched Mogul, a breakthrough service designed to help you take advantage of this critical asset class. Mogul members have been receiving investing alerts with projected rates of return of 16.1%, 19.4%, even 23.9% as well as cash yields of up to 12%! When you invest in stable, multiyear real estate developments, the value of these investments aren't subject to the wild swings of the market.

Tony Hawk and 10 other entrepreneurs share the books that changed their lives – Business Insider

Posted: March 21, 2020 at 2:45 am

without comments

caption Tony Hawk. source Dan Mathieu

The worlds most successful people read an outsized number of books. You dont have time to read a ton of books right now. So we asked these elite CEOs and Advisors in The Oracles to share the one book that profoundly changed their life and why. Here are the life-changing books you should be reading (or rereading) next.

Had I read High Fidelity when I was younger, I might have realized that I could pursue my dreams and become successful later in life and at a different pace. You dont have to do what you love with such abandon when you have other responsibilities. Now Im working on a Broadway production of another Hornby book, Slam, about a kid who aspires to be a pro skater but has to realize his path to responsibility when he gets his girlfriend pregnant.

Tony Hawk, founder and CEO of Birdhouse Skateboards and president of the Tony Hawk Foundation, and the most influential and commercially successful skateboarder of all time, with a $100+ million net worth

The Richest Man in Babylon was a game changer for me and changed the way I look at money. It teaches five simple rules: 1) Store money for future use, 2) Control your expenses, 3) Make money multiply, 4) Guard your treasures against loss, and 5) Improve your ability to earn. After reading it, I stopped saving money simply to save it and started storing money that I could later invest to work for me. The investment vehicle that met these criteria was income-producing real estate. This book teaches you to establish reliable income streams and that you should never confuse financial needs with wants. It should be required reading in every school.

Grant Cardone, founder of Cardone Capital, a $2 billion real estate empire. Follow Grant on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.

This book explains how to create apps and online experiences that are easy, intuitive, and enjoyable. Software should be simple and obvious to use. This simplicity is central to the vision of Canva and all good software companies. I reread this book often and recommend it to everyone.

Melanie Perkins, cofounder and CEO of Canva, valued at over $3 billion, and one of the youngest female CEOs leading a billion-dollar company

This book is such a must-read for leaders that I bought a copy for every manager in our company. The premise is simple: Good is the enemy of great. Most companies never achieve greatness because theyre satisfied with good enough. Greatness requires humble leaders who are driven by whats best for the company and dont let obstacles stop them.

Collins explains the importance of the book with this concept: When your passions, what you can be best in the world at, and what drives your economic engine come together, your work and life move toward greatness. Its impossible to have a great life unless its meaningful, and its difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work.

Dottie Herman, CEO of Douglas Elliman, a real estate brokerage empire with more than $27 billion in annual sales. Connect with Dottie on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

As an avid reader, I continuously consume stories and knowledge. I read this book while pregnant with my second child because I was curious about how my daughters relationship would work with her soon-to-be baby brother. It changed my approach to professional and personal relationships.

This book opened my mind to how people interact and why they are who they are. It spawned my interest in learning more about how to communicate effectively and meaningfully. It gave me an incredible gift: the tools to get past the awkward beginning of any relationship easily, be a considerate listener, and engage in fruitful relationships.

Jessica Mead, founder and CEO of BrandLync, cofounder of Mead Holdings Group, The Epek Companies, and Grayson Pierce Capital. Follow Jessica on Instagram.

This book is about aligning your work and life toward your calling and staying the course. When the warrior Arjuna loses his courage to lead a big battle against his evil cousins, Krishna shows him that he must do it because its his calling and duty. Anything less leads to regret and negatively impacts your life.

As I relate in my own book, Staring Down the Wolf, I went through a similar experience in my twenties. If I had read this then, I wouldve been more confident about ditching my corporate suit to become a Navy SEAL officer. I would have avoided a lot of confusion and emotional suffering around the decision, knowing that following my purpose was not a nice to do, but an absolute imperative.

Mark Divine, retired US Navy SEAL commander, NYT & WSJ bestselling author, and founder of Unbeatable Mind and SEALFIT. Follow Unbeatable Mind on Facebook and YouTube.

In college, I was profoundly affected by the concepts Professor Bargh taught in my Modern Unconscious class, which he later distilled into this book. In short, while your conscious thoughts matter, you are also heavily influenced by unconscious or automatic behavior.

I was struck by the huge potential of designing technology products and human organizations based on an understanding of how the human brain actually works, to help people lead happier, more fulfilled lives. After college, I turned down traditional job offers and decided to build a startup instead to put those ideas into action. Now, a decade later, were still motivated by the same long-term goal of increasing human agency. We use these concepts not to make you sad so you buy more or trap you in your Instagram feed, but to enable people to accomplish their goals and lead happier, more fulfilled lives.

Judd Rosenblatt, founder and CEO of AE Studio, an Agile web development and data science consulting firm with a mission to increase human agency with technology. Vote for the charity they donate to next month.

Holmes teaches timeless time management principles and the Dream 100, or the art of identifying and tirelessly pursuing key partners and customers. Ill never forget flipping through the pages for the first time on the island of Koh Phangan, Thailand, and recognizing that everything in my life had to change. I was doing too much, trying to be too many things to too many people. This book taught me to focus on networking. Ive read it multiple times since and always uncover new insights. I shudder to think how much money, time, and frustration I could have saved myself if I had come across this book sooner.

Jonathan Goodman, founder of the Personal Trainer Development Center and the first-ever certification for online fitness training, the Online Trainer Academy. Connect with Jonathan on Facebook and Instagram.

This book downloads nugget after nugget of life-changing wisdom. In particular, Stanley outlines five Cs that leaders need to be successful and leave a legacy. The first is competence. Leaders must channel their energy where they are most likely to excel. Second is courage, which is required to set things in motion and move ahead. Third is clarity. Leaders must learn to be clear, even when they arent certain. Fourth is coaching, because without a coach youll never be as good as you could be. Finally, character. You can lead without it, but you wont be a leader worth following.

Shaun Rawls, founder and CEO of Rawls Consulting who built The Rawls Group of Keller Williams to over $4 billion in annual sales, and author of the upcoming book F-It-Less. Connect with Shaun on Facebook and LinkedIn.

Growing up, I looked at money negatively and thought it was only possible to have money by saving it. This book changed my entire perspective on what money can accomplish for good and how to earn it. It was eye-opening to see the difference between two paths: playing it safe, going to school, and getting a job or using your skills to build a business that creates new opportunities.

Ashley Alderson, founder and CEO of The Boutique Hub and Boutique.Style, cancer survivor, motivational speaker, and host of Boutique Chat. Connect with Ashley on Instagram and LinkedIn.

This novel is about the leveraged buyout of RJR Nabisco for $25 billion in the 1980s. It showed me that with funding from financial institutions and investors, you can buy established, profitable companies without using any of your own money. This book inspired me to purchase multimillion-dollar businesses and help dozens of others do the same, which is what I do today. It teaches invaluable principles through storytelling, for example, that its all about building rapport with the seller. At the end of the day, business is about relationships.

Moran Pober, founder and CEO of, which buys and sells seven-figure businesses and helps others do the same, and former partner at WeKix and ABD Assets. Connect with Moran on LinkedIn and Instagram.
