New Podcast: On Leadership, Networking, and Reinvention

Robbie Samuels' "On the Schmooze" C-Suite Network Podcast

I recently spoke with Robbie Samuels for his podcast, On the Schmooze. We had a great conversation, covering a wide variety of marketing leadership, networking, and reinvention topics. I reveal some things about myself that you never heard before. You can listen to the podcast here. (30 minutes)

Here’s a preview of some of the topics we discussed:

  • my definition of leadership: “The ability to inspire others to take action.”
  • how early opportunities to work in retail, especially a family business, is a great learning ground for understanding sales, upselling, and work ethic.
  • the evolution of my business, and why I constantly re-invent: “80% of my revenue today is for services & products that didn’t exist two years ago.”
  • work/life integration — not balance
  • advice to those getting started in their career: “Surround yourself with the people you aspire to be one day.”

It feels as if we are in a messy maelstrom. We just hosted our Marketing Growth Leaders private cohort last week. The theme was crystal clear: Transition.
