Soon, Michael will be releasing his newest book, Clockwork, on August 26. Michael was a former business journalist for The Wall Street Journal and a former business makeover specialist on MSNBC.

Today, he travels the world as an entrepreneurial advocate helping people make sure they take the challenges out of outdated business beliefs and teaches people what to do about it.

In this episode, we discuss entrepreneurial poverty, the misconception of success, and the “profit first” philosophy. Michael speaks about his personal entrepreneurial experience and the struggles he faced earlier in his entrepreneur career. He states how he got out of bankruptcy and even shares a touching story about his daughter during that time. Michael states that letting go of his ego and having humility has helped him succeed. We explain how restricting money flow will spark innovation in a business and Michael uses the Apollo 13 mission as an example of this. Courtesy of Michael and his organization, there is a giveaway for listeners of this podcast at the end of this episode.
