“The Addicted Lawyer: Tale of the Bars, Booze, Blow, And Redemption” hit #1 on an Amazon Best Seller’s list as author Brian Cuban shares his journey on the show today. Mark Cuban writes of Brian’s book, “Resilience is an important trait in both business and addiction.” So, there is a lot entrepreneurs can learn from the stories Brian shares in this book. In Mark’s quote on the book’s cover he says, “His journey is one that should be read, AND NOTES TAKEN.” I agree and I’m sure you will, too. On the show, Brian talks about the importance of owning who you are and where you’re at, embracing whatever failure or moment of adversity that comes your way, and using it as an opportunity for expansion. It is in those moments of clarity, if you have the right mindset, that your most innovative ideas may be inspired. His message is powerful. Following Brian’s interview is Susan Davis, a life-long student and teacher of holistic practices and energy medicine, also working behind the scenes as a coach for TLC’s upcoming reality show centered around young women entrepreneurs called, “Girl starter”. She explains why working more is not actually productive. Sounds counterintuitive, right? It’s not. There comes a point where sitting and staring at your computer and focusing on one thing (meaning work), causes you to not be in your most innovative mindset. Any of the kiteboarding tech entrepreneurs and investors will tell you that some of their best ideas come when they turn off the screens and get out in the wind. Susan explains why balance is key to increased productivity and offers tangible, actionable things you can do to be at your innovative best.
