#242: Reading Between The Lines Of Leadership


reading between lines

You’ve heard it said many times, “Readers are leaders”

This is absolutely true, however, leading is about more than just filling your head with a lot of stuff; it is about learning, and most importantly, implementing what you learn.

My guest today exemplifies what this looks like in every way! Jeff and I met earlier this year at a Ray Edwards event, and became fast friends. He is a wonderful leader, and has a beautiful heart.

Most notably, he is making a HUGE impact in our world.

I am incredibly excited to revisit his interview on the program. Let’s go right now to my exclusive interview with Jeff Brown.

About Jeff:

Jeff Brown is a podcaster, mentor and speaker who is passionate about helping others bridge the gap between intentionality and implementation.

He achieves this every day by sharing his professional insights, and the insights of successful people all over the world, on leadership, personal development, productivity, entrepreneurship and more through his blog, podcast, and through personal consulting and speaking.

Before beginning his highly-acclaimed, top-ranking Read to Lead podcast, he spent 26-years in radio.

He lives near Nashville, TN with his wife Annie, and two miniature Dachshunds, Fritz and Frank.

Jeff has interviewed a number of New York Times bestselling authors including John MaxwellSeth GodinDan Miller, Daniel Pink, Simon Sinek, Chris Brogan (not once but twice), Gary Vaynerchuk and Liz Wiseman among others.

1.  Strategic Influencers Mastermind

We have recently expanded for a few openings in our next-level mastermind group for Strategic Influencers just like YOU. The purpose of this group is to connect emerging leaders for sharing ideas, purposeful collaboration, relational and business accountability, and ultimately, each member realizing “NEXT-LEVEL PERFORMANCE!”

This is not a marketing effort to get people into a course. In fact, this is not a course and it is not coaching. I’m looking to grow my businesses in a co-operative environment and also share my knowledge and experience with those who are ready to take their life and their leadership to the next level.

For more information on this incredible opportunity, go to …

Once you’ve completed the application, someone from our office will contact you to set up a short phone interview. Our desire is to serve you with excellence. The application process ensures you have all of your questions answered, and you and I are confident this group is a good fit for all involved. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
