Michael Simmons’ father died when Michael was eight years old. That, he says, is why his life in business has been all about defying the odds.
He’s the CEO of Empact Summit, has spearheaded over 600+ entrepreneurial education workshops at universities around the world and is the popular columnist at Forbes about relationship building in the age of social media.
Michael sits down with Jake to discuss relationships, the #1 mistake he says people make when trying to be social on social networks, why being open and vulnerable with all people, not only certain ones, is imperative to being successful and how to build rock solid relationships even if you’re a quiet or shy person (hint: it’s about serving others, not you!)
At the top of the show, Jake and Cait discuss important lessons learned (and mistakes made) in building relationships in business and why Cait won’t go with Jake on the Transiberian railroad from St. Petersburg, Russia to Beijing, China.
