    Think & Grow Richer - Why Leaders Fail

    in Business

    The Compassionate Capitalist Show, hosted by Karen Rands, digresses from the regular outline of each of the chapters in Napolean Hill's historic best selling original novel Think & Grow Rich to focus on Leadership.  Within his chapter on Step 6 Toward Riches: Organized Planning, Hill focuses a great deal on Leadership.   He spends time discussing the Origin of Leadership, the Eleven Secrets of Leadership, and what causes a Leader to fail.   


    Whether you are an aspiring entrepreneur or an active investor mentoring entrepreneurs, understanding and mastering leadership within a growing organization is critical to the success of the company long term. A dysfunctional leader in a company, depending on their shortfall, can lead to a corporate culture of inefficiency, fear, and/or selfishness that will directly impacts the company's ability to create maximum profit and sustained growth.  Without profit and sustained growth, the company becomes an under performing company and does not realize its true potential in the market leading to less than ideal outcomes for an exit and return on investment. 


    In this 30 min broadcast, Karen will explore this topic of Leadership drawing from Napolean Hill's writings and her own industry experience from working with hundreds of CEOs over the years.

    Think & Grow Richer: Imagination – Ideas become Fortunes

    in Business

    The Compassionate Capitalist Radio Show continues with the Think & Grow Rich series for entrepreneurs with Episode 7: Think & Grow Rich:  Imagination – Ideas become Fortunes.  Napolean Hill discovered in his study of the most successful men of his day - man can create anything he imagines.  He found then and it is still true today, man has discovered and harnessed more of natures forces during the past fifty years than during the entire history of the human race prior to that time.   Man has conquered air so that birds are a poor match to the modern plane.  Man had defied gravity to fly to the moon - and back, and now populate space with stations that can support life, again and again.   Man has harnessed the forces of nature - wind, sun, water - to produce power sufficient to run our modern lives.  Man has broken the most complex of chemical coding to be able to define the elements of our human DNA genome to identify markers for various physical characteristics, diseases, and even identify our common ancestry.   At one point someone had an idea - a question that began with a "what if" and either by their own device answered the question or by harnessing the intellect and knowledge of others answered that question. 


    Tune into hear Karen Rands interview Jim Debetta for this exciting episode. Known nationally as a trusted coach and mentor to thousands of inventors and entrepreneurs, Jim knows how to take new ideas from a sketch on a napkin to selling the final product to major retailers worldwide.  He has worked with hundreds of inventors and has seen first hand the power of harnessed imagination.   To learn more about Jim, and gain access to his "Essential Steps to Inventing" worksheet, visit http://jimdebetta.com

    Think & Grow Richer: Faith gives power to Thought and Confidence

    in Business

    Karen Rands, as host of the Compassionate Capitalist Radio Show, will continue the Think & Grow Rich podcast series focusing on Faith.   Napolean Hill in his epic book, Think & Grow Rich, describes Step 2 in the journey to achieve success, wealth and personal greatness as Faith.  "Directed Faith makes every thought crackle with Power.  You can rise to limitless heights, impelled by the lifting force of your mighty new self-confidence." 


    To explore this topic, Karen will be joined by Faith Reagan. Faith is a certified life coach focused on results.  Her mission is to help men and women who strive to set and achieve their personal, financial and business goals release those things that hold them back, steal their confidence, and inhibit their ability to move forward. Faith helps them gain Faith that they can achieve their goals.   Sometimes a person may not believe they are worthy of the success they are trying to achieve.  They focus on the negatives in their lives rather than the positive.  It is in the repetition of that negative story replayed in their self-talk of failure or "bad luck" that leads them to repeat and fail to achieve their desired goals.   Similarly, Napolean Hill determined over 75 years ago by examining the lives of the incredibly successful people of his time, Faith is a state of mind that can be induced or created simply by affirmation.  Every person has the power within themselves to change that if they take the 5 simple steps discussed in this segment.  Tune into hear more about how to create Faith and Belief in your success and potential to achieve your goals.
