Greg Salciccioli: The Enemies of Excellence

Author Greg Salciccioli is on the podcast!

How lucky can I get? My favorite book of 2016 was Greg Salciccioli's, The Enemies of Excellence and I get to chat with him on today's show and unpack how leaders can stay healthy.

I never would have though Greg would say yes to an interview. I read his book in the mastermind I participate in and the book so profoundly impacted me I had the masterminds I lead read it too.

I composed an email and hit "send" before I could consider what I was doing ... the next thing I knew Greg said he was looking forward to being on the show!!!​
