#5 - Where Do Ideas Come From? (featuring Anthony Cardno) (No Easy Answers)
This is a "quickie-cast" in between regular-length shows to let you know what I'm up to. In this episode, I talk about being in the process of fasting, which is new and strange to me, because I LOVE TO EAT! I talk about why I'm doing it, and wonder whether I'm going to make it three days without losing my mind! I also talk about my book, No Easy Answers, which is now available on Amazon! You can find links to the book on Amazon and more at barrymangione.com.
#4 - Who's Hungry? (No Easy Answers)
This episode features the first guest on the podcast, my coach, Steve Borek. Steve is a professional coach specializing in business coaching, career changes, and changes in your life's direction. My experiences being coached by Steve are what lead to me writing my first book, No Easy Answers. In this episode we discuss the coaching profession, what it means to be successful, and what it's like to be a zombie (you'll have to stay 'til the end for that one!). Steve can be found at www.endgamebusiness.com, or on Twitter @steveborek.
