Before I get to our guest speaker and the topic we covered, I wanted to share a great reference for all of you which I also talk about in the podcast.

As Harry S. Truman once said, “Not all leaders are readers, but all leaders are readers.” A great book that I’ve read recently is the book “Principles” by Ray Dalio. The book is about a set of life principles that Ray discovered as he was building the fifth largest hedge fund company in the United States. In this book, he argues that life management and investing can be synthesized and systemized into a group of understandable rules for success.

Want to read the book and plan your road to success? You can find the link to this reference at the end of this post.

Alright, time to get down to our podcast! Our featured guest today is an entrepreneur who helps promote speakers who have a story to tell and want to get paid for it. But… it isn’t as easy as you may think.

  • At 04:31, I introduce Nancy Vogl of As I mentioned, she’s an entrepreneur. She is the owner, founder of Nancy Vogl speakers and she’s a writer as well! She’s the editor/co-author of “Chicken Soup for the Single Parent’s Soul”.
