What happens when you are sick? You know, for more than one day (for one day, you get the benefit of just being sick and trying to sleep as much as you can), like sick for a week? What did you do? What if you were sick and feeling miserable for a lot longer… like a LOT longer? You might get angry. You might start cursing the world. You might just give up hope. And that’s exactly what this week’s guest, Ari Meisel, did when he was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease… …then he got better! Not physically right away, but in his brain he realized that he had to make some changes. So he did. He started realizing that there were ways to be able to get things done easier than he was doing them before. Then he realized that this was something that he could help other people do! So he started an empire. No, really, he started a freaking empire helping people do less work than they ever did before. And if you are wondering what that statement means, it means that you need to subscribe to Ari’s podcast “Doing Less with Ari Meisel” and get his books “The Art of Less Doing” and his new one “The Replaceable Founder” and find out why starting a business and being the boss doesn’t necessarily mean that is all you are going to do with your life… you can live a complete life away from work as well! We discuss: - Using surrogates - Why bald people all look the same - Getting rid of small tasks and eventually big ones - Good & bad experiences with coaching - Curing Crohn’s - Ari’s 9 books - Why business is not like family, but more like a team - Crashing in planes (twice!) Then we decide on one of these sketches, find out which one next week! 1. A Pilot outsourcing his job in the middle of a crash. 2. Multi-generational company transitioning to a younger generation in an odd business model. 3. Performance-enhancing drugs for horses being brought to humans. Special Guest: Ari Meisel | "Overwhelmologist" and Master of Doing Less.
