Episode Description

We are all faced with many life difficulties. The key is how we navigate through the tough challenges. Often it is a kind word or luck that helps us to work hard and move forward. My guest, Bob Danzig, is a perfect example of one who has overcome an extraordinary difficult beginning in life and rising to stellar success in business and personally. How did he do it? What life lessons flowed from being an abandoned child in foster care? What were the key turning points of moving from office boy to corporate CEO? How can we enhance our confidence level and develop the leader within us? Bob will share his vast experience and the importance of embracing the opportunities that come our way and how he handled the pressures of being CEO of Hearst Newspapers and being a Dad of five children and the greatest life lessons he has learned. Please join us on Thursday, April 24th at 3 PM PT, 5 PM CT and 6 PM ET, to listen and ask Bob your specific questions.
