Buckle up your seat belt, because you are in for an inspirational ride. This episode features my interview with Sheri Fink, the author of five best-selling children's books.

She also produced an inspirational journal, published a romance novel, and her voice and lyrics are featured on music albums - and all of them have achieved impressive levels of success.

I didn't know what to expect when I first reached out to Sheri to interview her. I had a feeling it would be an interesting story, and boy is it ever!

In fact, there's so much great stuff here, I'm breaking it up into two episodes. This is part one. Enjoy!

Wanna learn how to vlog like a boss? Not sure what that even means? Have no fear. You'll learn all about it on this episode.

Amy Schmittauer started a YouTube channel in 2009 to vlog (video blog) her life. She discovered she was good at video, and people started asking her how to use video and social media for business purposes.

That inspired Amy to launch her Savvy Sexy Social channel in 2011. Soon after, she quit her corporate day job to become a full-time vlogger and social media consultant. Her channel currently has 54,000+ subscribers and nearly 4 million channel views.

On this episode, she shares her story and offers some great advice on expanding your presence and personal brand online.

Jamey Stegmaier may be one of the most successful people I've interviewed. He took a childhood interest and turned it into a thriving, multi-million dollar business. That makes him a guy worth listening to.

His company creates board games for niche audiences. He used Kickstarter to raise a total of $3.2 million over several campaigns for different games, each one raising more money than the previous campaign.

Jamey's business philosophy is based on engagement, interaction and delivering value to his community. His attitude is infectious. You don't have to be a board game creator to benefit immensely from his wisdom. So listen up!

I think of him as the punk rock entrepreneur. Jon Nastor took the DIY punk music ethic of his teens and twenties and ended up applying it to his business life.

Today he hosts the wildly successful "Hack the Entrepreneur" podcast, even though he hates the sound of his voice.

His first time out of the gate as an author resulted in several thousand copies sold of his Hack the Entrepreneur book, even though he never considered himself to be a great writer.

Listen to this high-energy interview as Jon lays out his amazing story in detail. You'll learn:

  • How he wrote and published his first book in three months
  • What his young daughter taught him about the power of birthdays
  • Why he loves and embraces "maniacs" and encourages you to do the same
  • How Dr. Seuss changed his life
  • Why all entrepreneurs should be willing to suck

Click Play. You'll be glad you did!
