#233: Ryan Levesque—Better Questions, More Sales

In working with businesses across 23 different industries, Ryan Levesque—CEO of The ASK Method Company and best-selling author—has discovered what a big (think $100-million- dollars big) difference the smallest subtleties in language can make. Turns out it’s not enough to simply ask people what they want. You have to use the right words in the right way to elicit the most truthful response. And when you do? You may very well watch your sales catapult from so-so to stellar. Tune in to find out how to successfully deploy The ASK Method in your business. Also weighing in on the tremendous power of asking questions is Antonio Garrido, cofounder and president of Sandler Training in Miami.

#231: Renée Mauborgne—Move Beyond Competing

World-renowned professor and best-selling author Renée Mauborgne has spent the last decade proving to businesses around the world that they have the power to shape their industry—in spite of the competition. In fact, making decisions based on what your competitors are doing achieves little more than turning you into them. Instead, Renée insists the best way to fuel growth is to create a new market—with conditions favorable to you—rather than allowing the current market conditions to dictate your decisions. Scary? Yes. Worth the risk? Absolutely. Join us to learn how you can shift into uncontested market space and win—big time.

#228: Donald Miller—How to Double Your Revenue

Donald Miller, best-selling author and CEO of StoryBrand, knows your most powerful marketing tool has nothing to do with a big budget.

Join us to learn how to clarify your brand message so people will actually listen. Donald joined us last week in Nashville for EntreLeadership Master Series—and now you can watch him in action with our attendees on the EntreLeadership YouTube channel. We’ll also share highlights from this power-packed leadership event, including some special conversations with Ramsey Solutions leaders as they weigh in on the ever-important topics of goal setting and recruiting.

#223: Mike Erwin—The Power of Solitude

An Intelligence Officer in three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, Mike Erwin has had to weigh in on the heaviest of all decisions—the ones that involve life and death. Of course, military intel and his years of training were invaluable in those situations, but he would argue that solitude—those quiet moments that bring clarity—was equally important. Mike, who now serves as the CEO of the Character & Leadership Center, explores how some of history’s greatest leaders (think Winston Churchill and Martin Luther King Jr.) found courage and conviction during moments alone. Tune in to find out how you can too.
