2020 saw a lot of upheaval for small business, few people were untouched by it.

In March I saw nearly $10,000 in monthly ad revenue disappear.

I was doing work with Pete Vargas, king of the stage, and his entire business disappeared almost instantaneously.

“Pivot” became the new buzzword and now we keep hearing stories from people who took a hit, made a pivot, and actually came out better as a result.

But some did not, and it’s not because they weren’t brilliant people. Some industries are difficult to pivot in.

So I wanted to hear someone in the trenches of small business tell us what they were seeing.

Where are there more and less opportunities?

The Jordan Harbinger Show

Friends, here’s a guy who I cite as being the modern day purveyor of Dale Carnegie’s, “How To Win Friends and Influence People,” Jordan Harbinger. I’ve had him on The Ziglar Show twice, episodes 327 and 489, and two days ago had him on my Motive podcast, episode 19. The Jordan Harbinger Show is an Apple Top 50 podcast and was among Apple’s “Best of 2018” and he has proven his value as a podcasting rockstar. 

The mission of The Jordan Harbinger Show is to help you become a better informed, more critical thinker – so you can get a much deeper understanding of how the world works and make sense of what’s really happening. He has topics on the show such as an FBI hostage negotiator who teaches us how to get people to like and trust us; neuroscientists, spies and special forces operators who teach us how to develop resilience and mental toughness.

Jordan’s show isn’t pop psychology and superficial advice, nor shallow inspiration; this is a show that offers meaningful, fun, life-changing insights with a practical edge so listeners can apply something right out of the box, every show, every day.

Jordan is a skeptic but not a cynic. He doesn’t let his guests get away with platitudes and that shallow self-help stuff. In fact, every episode has worksheets so you can make sure you’re internalizing and applying what you learn from the guests.

Do you have a fast or slow metabolism?

I’ve known celebrity trainer Angelo Poli for over a year now and he’s opened my eyes to the reality that many overweight people have a very fast metabolism and many seemingly fit and healthy people have very sluggish metabolisms.

That is my struggle.

I tend to exercise a lot and eat very little and therefore train my metabolism to slow down and I actually gain fat!

It’s nuts, but in episode 58 of the True Life podcast you can hear why this is.

I’ll tell you it’s not a hack or a secret but just a reality of how the body works to do what it’s supposed to do and how you can get your body to naturally speed up your metabolism and burn instead of store your fat.

Listen to Dr Randy James and I talk with Angelo in episode 58 of the True Life Show, then you can inquire about a high-touch experience working with a Metpro metabolic expert and access the tools their industry-leading coaches use, at metpro.co/ziglar.

You can take their assessment and speak with their team with no commitment, and if you want to engage, my listeners can get up to one month FREE when they sign up.
