Podcasts Of The Week [2nd week May]May 13, 2018
Welcome to another edition of Podcast Of The Week!
Each week we will post a few of the best podcast episodes that we have listened to over the last 7 days. The podcasts will cover various topics, not just personal finance and investing.
Podcast: Self Made Man
Episode: Finding Your Perfect Partner In Life
Today’s interview is one of my favorites…
We’re going to sit down with the biggest power couple in fitness, Chris and Heidi Powell.
If they sound familiar, it’s because they are the stars of ABC’s hit show, Extreme Weight Loss, and together, they have built up a social media following of more than 3 million fans.
Well my plan for this interview was to dive into how they’ve built their brand and their business empire.
And while that’s what we end up discussing, how they achieved their success was completely unexpected…
At the end of the day, what they’ve built is not a result of effective marketing… It’s the result of the relationship they have with each other.
When Chris met Heidi, he was completely broke and literally living out of his car.
Heidi was divorced with two kids, and the last thing she wanted was a relationship.
But the attitude that each of them brought to the table when it came to their dreams in life, and each other, was the magic pixie dust that changed everything.
There is nothing in this world, that has a greater impact on your destiny, or quality of life, than the partner you choose to spend it with.
What you have here today, is an opportunity to see what’s possible when you choose the right person.
You’ll have a chance to see the qualities you want to look for as you hear Chris and Heidi share their story, and you’ll walk away from this interview with a lasting example in your mind, of what a world-class relationship looks like, and what’s possible in life when you find the perfect partner.

Episode: Cindy Whitehead – How to sell your company for one billion dollars
Cindy Whitehead (@cindypinkceo) is an entrepreneur with $1.5 billion in exits who currently serves as the founder and CEO of The Pink Ceiling, an investment firm and consulting enterprise nicknamed the Pinkubator with a mission to invest in, launch, and build other women-led or focused businesses. She believes that access to good advice alone is not enough to change the ratio of men to women in business, and that is why she personally invested more than $15 million in 2017 alone to support the development of nine portfolio companies.
I should mention right off the bat that if you’re a guy, don’t let this bio turn you off in any way. I wanted to have Cindy on the show because she is a good CEO and entrepreneur, very much regardless of gender. The negotiating techniques, the approaches to deal-making, everything that we talk about applies to entrepreneurs, period, full stop.
Earlier in her career, Cindy was the founder of Sprout Pharmaceuticals, home of Addyi, the first and only FDA-approved treatment for low sexual desire disorder in women, which was sold for one billion dollars and then reacquired in a crazy story with incredible terms that we will discuss in this conversation.
Please enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Cindy Whitehead!
