Audacious Goals Friday

Plus Creators Spotlight:

In this vibrant episode of Morning Talks, the hosts kick off by catching up on recent activities, including a fun pickleball game and interacting with an exchange student. The show features Corey Quinn, who shares his journey from sales to authoring a book designed to help businesses escape founder-led sales, and offers a free audio book to listeners. Laurie Hybee, a digital marketing expert, discusses the impact of AI on marketing and the importance of leaning into new technologies rather than resisting them. The hosts also highlight Anthony Mahaj's LinkedIn post about changes to the platform that could make selling harder, and Justin Welsh's 22 steps to building a successful one-person business with a focus on content creation, identifying ideal customers, and operating with high margins.

The show wraps up with plans for the weekend and an upcoming segment on dads in the lab discussing blockchain technology.

Chasing big goals? Remember to pause.

I love being the hardest worker in the room.

Iโ€™m always pushing my limits.

But I also hit pause.


To refocus on what drives meโ€”family, health, sanity.
