Our first guest today was Tom Panaggio, Strategic Innovation Consultant, accomplished Entrepreneur and author of the book The Risk Advantage which can be found online here . As an entrepreneur and racecar driver, Tom has learned that you cannot avoid risk if you want to be a winner. In The Risk Advantage, Panaggio tells the story of how he and his business partners built two thriving companies: Direct Mail Express and Response Mail Express. The book is designed as a guide for those who are contemplating an entrepreneurial pursuit, are already engaged in building a business, or are currently working for someone else and want to inject their entrepreneurial ideas and attitude. With The Risk Advantage, Panaggio aims to help entrepreneurs face the many situations, predicaments, and crises they’ll encounter during their lives as well as to help them formulate their leadership style and business strategy. On the show, Jamie and Tom share a great discussion on what it means to take risk. Taking risks is an essential part of any business and you cannot fear failure to be an entrepreneur. Tom shares how risks can be minimized but never eliminated and how entrepreneurs must be self-reliant and not fear change, one of the areas that stifle many leaders from growing. “Involve your employees and give them the wheel when it’s time to change”, an excellent tip that Tom shares when dealing with change in companies with staff. As he explains, change affects your staff as it does you so give them the reigns and let them steer the ship while you guide. Tom shares with us his personal entrepreneurial journey in the direct mail business and how he learned to trust his gut when it came to decision making and how you can too!

Our 7:30 guest was Diane Daniels, host of Weight Loss Nation, a podcast she launched this past April. Since childhood, she has struggled with maintaining a healthy weight. Being unsuccessful with so many different weight loss programs, Diane decided to find the answer to achieving long term weight loss on her own. The result is Weight Loss Nation; a remarkable solution to a very real problem. Weight Loss Nation is different from any other weight loss program, because support is the #1 priority. She talks with Jamie about season #1 which saw many fitness and weight loss experts join the discussion and how she lost 30 pounds by changing her habits and diet to be in line with her goal to be thin once again! Her strategy has been to lay off of carbs while eating “real foods” as she puts it. Nothing from the convenience stores or in a box she says. Her new season launches October 15th and Season 2 will not be a contest format with her weight loss participants. The new season will feature a group / collaboration style weight loss challenge based on feedback she got from her season one participants who competed in a winner take all challenge. You can find the podcast on Stitcher and iTunes as well as on www.theweightlossnation.com and she is taking applicants now to participate in this season’s weight loss challenge!
