Legendary entrepreneur Ewing Kauffman's success in building Marion Laboratories is like an entrepreneur's dream come true. With just $5,000 of borrowed money, he built the company into a $6.5 billion success. He also went on to found the Kauffman Foundation and became the owner of the Kansas City Royals.
How did he do it?
Jim McGraw served as Mr. K's Chief Operating Officer during Marion's period of explosive growth. As his way of giving back, Jim has developed a free program called LEAPPAhead that outlines three of the critical skills he and Mr. K used at Marion during its glory days. These skills are as valuable today as they were then, and Jim joins host Kelly Scanlon to share them with you.

What's Funny: The Humor Code
Research over the years has tried to answer the question: what makes things funny? Understanding how the brain processes humor can help marketers use it in a much better way (we hope, anyway!). Join us July 10 when we talk to Peter McGraw, co-author of The Humor Code, about his theory on what makes things funny.
Dr. McGraw, a professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, is an expert in the interdisciplinary fields of emotion and behavioral decision theory. Most recently, he has been examining the antecedents and consequences of humor. He directs the Humor Research Lab (HuRL).
McGraw holds appointments in marketing at the Leeds School of Business and in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience. McGraw is willing to leave the ivory tower to try his hand at stand-up at a dive bar, attending a funeral director convention, pose as a shopper at a gun show, or sing hymns at a Baptist church. His work has been covered by NPR, BBC, Scientific American, Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and the Financial Times. With Joel Warner, he has co-authored The Humor Code: A Global Search for What Makes Things Funny.

LEGENDARY BASSIST TIM BOGART JOINS DR. DAY AND LARRY BATTSON FOR A WALK THRU ROCK AND ROLL HISTORY.
in Self Help
As a long-time, close associate of Guy Finley (Self-realization author and teacher who is known for his deep understanding of the Inner Path), Tim Weichman brilliantly addresses many of the inner life topics that Guy writes and teaches about such as freedom from stress and fear, finding inner peace, relationships, taking command of our own lives, and many other related topics. He has presented over 300 lectures on all aspects of these principles, and his background in science, which will be discussed in more detail on the show, brings a penetrating, laser-sharp precision to the exploration of these extraordinary ideas.
On today’s show Tim will share his insights on inner balance, harmony, forgiveness, and letting go. And, if our instincts serve us correctly, we will have more than a few laughs along the way. So, if you are looking for a good time, this is where you want to be..
