If there are two qualities every small-business owner needs, it’s perseverance and the willingness to grow slowly. And this week’s featured guest could be a poster child for both. EntreLeader Danielle Ontiveros, CEO of Grab the Gold, joins us to discuss her company’s journey to becoming a national brand and how even a hurricane couldn’t stop her from building her business. EntreLeadership host Ken Coleman shares his thoughts on perseverance too, along with answering listeners’ mail.
If you’re struggling to recruit talent, listen in. Because according to this week’s guest, Adam Braun, your traditional candidate pool is about to get a lot deeper. The founder of Pencils of Promise, a nonprofit that builds elementary schools in third-world nations, has recently launched a new form of higher education. MissionU is an alternative to college that teaches students the hard and soft skills they need to thrive in any 21st century career. And did we mention that every student graduates without being saddled with debt? This is a fascinating conversation that explores a rising trend you can’t ignore.
In a recent study of CEOs, it was found that the highest predictor of success is knowing your own strengths and weaknesses. And on this week’s episode, we have the perfect person to help you become more self-aware. Best-selling author and psychologist Ian Morgan Cron joins us to discuss the Enneagram personality type system, which gives insight on who you are, how you think and feel, and why you act the way you do. If you are a leader or want to be one some day, don’t miss this episode.
