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!

Here's the audio to my most popular YouTube video in recent months. It racking up more than a thousand views in a week. In this short clip I offer an alternative view of celebrity deaths and the widespread notion that "2016 sucked!"

I must have struck a nerve, because the view count keeps rising.

I recorded this the day after George Michael died. After that Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds passed away. Add them to a long list of icons that includes David Bowie, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Muhammad Ali, George Martin, Alan Rickman, Gene Wilder, Garry Shandling, John Glenn, Florence Henderson, Glenn Frey, and more.

There are many ways to respond to all that happened in 2016. Take a few minutes to listen to this for a different perspective
