Mike Hahn’s Adventure: Community Development, Entrepreneurship Counseling, Small Business Development (E.020)

podcast Aug 03, 2022

In this episode, I get to introduce you to someone I met quite a few years back when I was initially exploring entrepreneurship and had the idea of publishing a travel magazine.  Mike Hahn was working with small businesses at the University of Northern Iowa, and he helped me see that was not something I should pursue.

Mike is unusual as he knew as a teenager that he wanted to work with businesses and communities, and he has made a career in that work in Iowa, North Dakota, and Minnesota.

He talks in the podcast about how building durable skills and relationships are key to success, plus as he has seen in his work, don’t be afraid to try things and fail.

Tim Schurrer’s Adventure: Singer/ Songwriter, Talent Management, Operations Officer, Author (E.019)

podcast Aug 01, 2022

In this episode, you get to know Tim Schurrer. Tim began his Career Adventure thinking he would be the next John Mayer but realized that singing and songwriting were not what he was wired to do. It turns out logistics and operations were the work that fit him.

In his journey, he discovered that he needed to redefine success and fame, and that success lay in giving assistance to those around him, and choosing a lifestyle over title and company brand was what he needed.

I was drawn to Tim through his work with Don Miller and Story Brand, a program I have been involved in for a number of years, and when I heard a recent interview with Tim on a podcast I had to connect with him.

His book The Secret Society of Success showcases the unsung heroes behind many famous brands and names that would not be what they are now if it wasn’t for them.

Daniel Alfon’s Adventure: Competitive Business Intelligence Specialist, LinkedIn Trainer, Speaker (E.018)

podcast Jul 15, 2022

In this episode, you get to meet Daniel Alfon. He followed a past from believing he would be a judge in the legal system but then found that helping people go from point A to point B.  He saw that was the work he was wired to do, and that led to building a career in training.  Today he is an expert in helping people make the most of their Linkedin profile to help their careers and professions.

Daniel was drawn to LinkedIn during his career in business intelligence as he was investigating people to connect to within different companies around the globe.  LinkedIn cut the amount of time it took to find and connect with people for the sales role he had with the company he worked for.

He now trains people to better leverage their profile on the platform, not as a digital resume, but as a personal website to convert the reader to connect with you.
