My guests, Carla and Roni, have a new book, What You Can, When You Can. It's pretty darned neato. Just get it, okay? Don't let me get in the way. 

Hi Peter! I'm glad you read the show notes. I can tell you that you're not alone. But Brad, don't give away all my secrets. A girl has to have a little mystery. 

Okey doke. Gotta go.

**FIXED THE DEAD AIR> SORRY** Brandon Webb, CEO of Force12 Media and former US Navy SEAL sniper trainer, sits down with me for a second interview, talking about his new book, Among Heroes. It's the story of 8 fallen comerades and what their lives and deaths mean and what they might mean for YOU. Great conversation and definitely worth your time!

I talk with Dr. Eric Greitens, New York Times bestselling author about his new book, Resilience, which is an excellent study into how to battle depression, improve your mental health, and deal with life's big challenges. It's super straightforward and filled with quite a mix of references.

Had a great sit down talk with Steve Garfield about his recent investment in Mercedes Benz of Burlington (Yeah, a car dealership!), and his other investments, and about what he does as a business man. Whenever you meet Steve out and about, he's just a happy go lucky guy, so little did you know, he's out there doing all kinds of interesting stuff. 

Hi to Patrick, both Nicks, and Pamela (who read the show notes!)

 

Do YOU? Drop me a line: chris@owner.media

I sit down with Chief Trend Hunter Jeremy Gutsche about his new book, Better and Faster, and about trends in general. And I get to chat with Chris Greenwood aka Manafest, about music and writing and what it means to be the kind of artist he is, and more. 

Hi Patrick! Didn't want to leave you out. And evidently TWO Nicks read the show notes. Holy cats! I'm just going to stuff the show notes with YOUR names, right?

Nicole Lapin 's new book is Rich Bitch, and it's about how to do better with your money. While it's technically aimed at girls, it's like Cosmo. You'll get a lot out of it if you're a dude, too! :) She's a smart egg and anyone who can talk about finance and make you dig it is good to know. Hi Nick!
