Empowering Individuals and Organizations to Live Life at Performance Level

So you’ve got goals, and you’re ready to make some serious headway to become who you want to be in 2019.

On today’s episode of The Next 24 Hours, I’m talking to a good friend of mine who I consider a goal-achieving expert. Craig Heimbuch has written 16 books. He has traveled the world as a guest lecturer and brand expert. But if you had told him that 10 years ago, he never would have believed you.

Craig was a brilliant journalist. He loved his work, but it wasn't paying the bills. I happened to see Craig at a party on the day that his boss asked him to work more hours for less pay, and he says that what happened next changed his life forever.

On this show, I have Craig talk us through his unconventional career path and the daily habits he implements to crush his goals every year:

Listen in to hear:

  • The incredible thing that happened when he put his two weeks in his dream job
  • How to break through panic when you worry that you're in the wrong career (we've all been there.)
  • How his creative passion landed him a corporate opportunity
  • Why taking risks is vital to success
  • The technique he used to shatter his sales records and pitch success rate
  • How to make time for personal development (Even when you have 4 kids and 9 jobs!)

I'm really excited to share this episode with you because Craig uses strategies in his everyday life that could revolutionize the way you see yourself and achieve your goals.

This episode is available on iTunes, Spotify and Google Play.

Change Management is the New Leadership
Change is the new normal, and change management is the new leadership. Every company and every organization that I've worked with in the past few years has been undergoing major change due to technology, restructuring or rebranding. And they're not just making changes for the sake of change--they're making changes because it's a matter of life a...

In 2019, the Power of Advertising is in the People
Advertising--in the traditional sense--doesn't work anymore. Have you noticed? In general, trends in 2019 don’t start because executives sat in a conference room somewhere and came up with a campaign--they grow organically among pockets of teenagers and corners of the internet. Rockstar brands notice this and map out their marketing strategy bas...

What the Military Taught Me About Living in Excellence
If it weren't for the courageous men and women in uniform who serve in our Armed Forces, none of us would be able to live the dream to the same extent that we get to in the U.S. This is especially meaningful to me because I've had the honor of speaking to over 20,000 airmen in United States Air Force as well as to a variety of other organization...
