Executive Coaching For Entrepreneurs

TIM411: Ask Me Anything

What Is This TIM411 Podcast About?

The short version…

You send me a question and I answer it.

My clients pay me well to coach them to transform them from a founder into a leader of their company. They get to access my years of business experience, depth and breadth of entrepreneurial knowledge, and my ability to quickly identify leverage points in their business.

So one day my good friend, Dan Andrews of TropicalMBA fame, said I should start a podcast again that had an element of me sharing and teaching the insights I’ve gained over my career working with entrepreneurs.

It hit me…

Instead of me only coming up with topics to teach, I would ask you to send me the questions you need answered. Like they say, “if one person has a question there’s dozens of others who have it too.”

This show will answer your question specifically for you, and all those others out there with the same question will benefit too.

Sound cool? It sounds freakin’ awesome to me.

So… Let’s A some Qs!

1. Get Your Voice On An Episode…

2. Or Tweet Your Question…

You can tweet your question with #TIM411 and I’ll take a screenshot of it for the episode post and read your question on the show.

3. Or Write Out Your Question & I’ll Read It

  • Ask me anything. I'll do my best to give you a great answer. NOTE: there is no guarantee that your question will get answered in an upcoming post nor will I send an email answer.
