Episode Description

There is the knowledge of leadership and then actually how it is applied in a real world environment. Everyone talks about what it takes to be an effective leader but not the actual process to become one in real life. Joshua Spodek discusses real world exercises how existing leaders or those aspiring to be one can truly have sustainable success at the next level by actually doing and going through the process rather than just knowing it. Join us to gain valuable insight how a progression of exercises through practice is a game changer for positive change when it comes to taking leadership to another level for sustainable success.

Sustainable Success

Wednesday at 8 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Influencers Channel

Have you asked yourself why your life has not unfolded the way you have envisioned! What holds you back from getting things accomplished and being successful consistently long term? The answer lies with past events which is the cause that leads to effects that many live in that keep them trapped in self-doubt that leads to procrastination. Your habits and behaviors unconsciously in adulthood are tied back to trigger events that have molded you into a pattern of self-doubt or success. It is your inner critic that has a choice of tapping into the positive or negative that dictates your habits and behaviors that either server you or not long term.

Our show focuses on how entrepreneurs and business leaders can have sustainable success at the next level. We cover a broad range of wellness and business topics, including steps to resolve the root cause to mindset barriers, and authentic leadership and living principles to operate in the solution rather than effects of the challenge.
