Let's Talk Business, Podcast

Mastering the Art of Blending Worlds with Rabbi Shmuel Reichman

By , September 12, 2023

Sometimes, we like to imagine that business success can be separated from success in other areas of life. But as Meny Hoffman, host of the Let’s Talk Business Podcast, often says, life is like a car with four wheels: the wheels of spiritual goals, financial goals, health goals, and family goals; if one wheel is flat, the others won’t do much good.

In this conversation with international speaker, bestselling author, business coach, and CEO of Self-Mastery Academy Rabbi Shmuel Reichman, Meny and Shmuel discuss the importance of personal development as a part of business success, the need to create an integrated life, the necessity of having a vision and the ways to divide that vision into bite-size goals, avoiding irrational fears of failure, having partners to whom you can be accountable, and much more.
