Justin Sachs published his first book at 18, and now at 23 has published 4 books, 3 of which are best sellers! He owns 8 companies, including Motivational Press.  Motivational Press has published 50 authors! His international speaking tour, The Ultimate Success Tour, cemented his position as one of the world's leading leadership and peak performance speakers in the world. His latest project is called the Ultimate Business Mastery, which helps entrepreneurs take their business to the next level through mastering their mindset for success and implementing specific actions. I can't recommend this interview enough!       ...

Guest: Cherie Stine, COO and Slaes Chick at OCG Products, Tech Candy Cases http://www.cyberears.com/cybrss/18827.mp3 [caption id="attachment_4058" align="alignright" width="300"] Cherie Stine and April Mraz[/caption] Cherie Stine is our first two time guest! I loved her so much the first time, and wanted to hear the rest of her story, so I had her back! Last time we spoke, Cherie told how she sold million of her trendy product in months and then watched the market die in a month, that's right, one month! This time we talk about how she survived and fought back!  See her new product on the Nordstrom site.  Topics include: what to do when a market dies, how to find a new product based on old skills, a trip to China!, how to manage valuable sales channels, can you create a wave?, getting into the best retailers in the US, dealing with Apple, and listening to customers. This is a great interview with tons of insights into products and retail.  A must listen!                ...

But I was so interested in the story that I asked him back not as a restaurateur, but as an entrepreneur. Terry Hall was a country club manager who quit to follow a dream, his strong passion for bringing healthy food to all. The thing that is the most interesting is how Terry has taken an industry not known for its business excellence and looked at it with sophistication and depth of thought. His truck is the first with a corporate tie like his with the Big Green Egg Company. He raised his startup capital (with the help of last week's guest Grace Frick of Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs!) and from Starbucks' Create Jobs for USA fund. And just recently, Banana Republic made a documentary about him! Just too cool.  All this for a food truck.  Done right. Very right.     ...
