‘Rising Above’ Adversity: How Hardship Can Forge Strength

This week’s guest, Gregory Zuckerman, is marking his 20th year as a reporter with The Wall Street Journal.

Greg, who himself has been a publishing entrepreneur, is fascinated by unlikely characters who overcome life’s obstacles to achieve phenomenal success.

Already the author of two blockbuster books – The Greatest Trade Ever, and The Frackers – Greg enlisted his two sons to pen a third book, Rising Above, the tale of how 11 athletes overcame challenges in their youth to become stars.

Among those Greg and his sons profile are LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Jim Abbott, Shane Battier, and Althea Gibson.

Rising Above is targeted at school-age readers. But whether you have kids who are still in school, or you are a seasoned entrepreneur looking for inspiration, the core message of Rising Above is essential: It’s not where you begin, but where you journey that matters most.

Greg and Gabriel share their experience studying adversity, and working together on a family book project, with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart.

Grab Your Slice of the $45 Billion Apps Marketplace

If you love sports, or have customers, friends, and family who do, this week’s edition of Monday Morning Radio may offer you a low-risk way to earn some extra income – and really enjoy it.

My guests – John Zehr and Robb Lewis, say they’ve developed an opportunity to leverage your existing customer base and social networks to grab a slice of the $45 billion apps industry. 

Robb Lewis is an executive with Utah-based United Games, which has created a live, interactive sports app that promises to let sports fans – in the stadium, on their televisions, or using their smart phones – experience and interact with live sporting events like no game app ever before.

John Zehr, an early adopter, is one of thousands of affiliate hopefuls who plan to use word-of-mouth buzz to attract players to the free app – and profit when those players buy tokens, or watch commercials embedded into the game.

The opportunity intrigued host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart enough that he not only invited John and Robb on the program, he agreed to pay the rather minimal upfront fee and small monthly retainer to try his hand at becoming a games app mogul.

[Email Dean at dean@mondaymorningradio.com and he can provide you an official invitation to become an affiliate as well.]

To paraphrase President Reagan, Dean says, “I plan to trust United Games, but verify. I encourage my listeners to do likewise.”

The Inspiring Tale Behind Hyperkid v. BullBorg

Emerson Daub recently published his second book, HyperKid v. BullBorg. Backed by a national PR campaign, the juvenile novel is selling well on Amazon in several categories, including Growing Up & Facts of Life.

What makes Emerson different from the crowd of other children’s books writers is that, he, himself, is just 9 years old – at least until July 22nd that is, when he turns the big 1-0.

Many parents think about teaming with a young son or daughter to create a book, write an opera, or launch a business, but never actually act on their ideas. Emerson’s parents did, and this week, reputation coach and Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart – in his best investigative mode – gets the scoop from both Emerson and his proud papa Richard. (Hint: Emerson’s favorite color is red; Richard’s is blue.)

If you’ve ever dreamed of going into business with your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews, you’ll want to hear the inspiring tale behind Hyperkid v. BullBorg.

Senior Citizen Waltz Proves a Viral Success for Tiny Milne Court in Nova Scotia

Scott Frazer and his son, Sean, help run the family’s service station and convenience store, Milne Court, in tiny New Minas, Nova Scotia, population 2,500.

Last month, when out of the blue an elderly customer in their store asked Sean to dance with her, he obliged. Sean’s impromptu senior citizen waltz was captured on Milne Court’s security cameras and Dad Scott posted it to Facebook. In a two-step, the video went viral and is now nearing 1 million views.

This week on Monday Morning Radio, Scott and Sean share with reputation coach and host Dean Rotbart the story behind their viral video, and the takeaways we all can utilize to generate our own popular online videos.

Star-Spangled Reputation: How Janine Stange Became a Reputation Hall of Famer

From the time she was in high school, Janine Stange was touched by our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, and all it represents. So she began singing it, and singing it, and singing it, right into the record books.

Now known as the National Anthem Girl, Janine has performed the Star Spangled Banner publicly thousands of times, in all 50-states, in venues from Madison Square Garden to Arlington National Cemetery, and at untold numbers of major sporting events, festivals, and patriotic celebrations.

In one 24-hour period last August, in fact, Janine performed publicly 24 different times.

For Janine, singing the national anthem is a cause, a passion, and increasingly a business. 

Does patriotism make for a good business platform?  This week on Monday Morning Radio, Janine will address that question, as well as share with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart what it takes to be a hall of fame-caliber reputation builder.
