Forget Warren Buffett: It’s Big Mama and Biggie Who Should Be Your Financial Role Models

Timolin Langin Teaches How to Live Like a Millionaire…On Any Budget

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Some people look to Warren Buffett and Mark Cuban for investment wisdom. Timolin Langin looked to Big Mama and Biggie – her grandmother and great-grandmother –  for her financial sensibilities.

Timolin was born and raised in Mississippi to sharecroppers and cooks – none of whom graduated high school. Yet leveraging the wisdom imparted to her by Big Mama and Biggie, she became a school teacher, and then a real estate investor, author, world traveler, and ultimately a millionaire.

In her book, Mind Over Money, Timolin says anyone, on any budget, can live like a millionaire when they dedicate themselves to her wise saving and spending strategies. This week she shares her five-step program for achieving greater financial well-being with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, who may not in fact be a multi-millionaire, but after talking to Timolin already thinks like one.

Brian Harman Relies on Storytelling, Humor, and a Splash of Vulgarity to Teach Leadership

His Book Aims to Help the Next Generation of Owners and Bosses

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Brian Harman works in supply chain management for a large multi-national pharmaceutical company. He relies on storytelling, humor, and a splash of vulgarity to instruct lousy business leaders in the art of leadership excellence.

Stepping aside from his day-to-day responsibilities, Brian recruited family and friends to help him write, publish, and promote a book he hopes will inspire a new generation of leaders who aren’t burdened with the bad habits of existing owners and bosses.

Brian’s book, How to Avoid a Leadersh*t, co-written with his cousin, Stephanie M. Taglianetti, uses an expletive in its title, just like the enormously popular bestseller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*uck.

If foul language – or innovative thinking – offends you, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart suggests you skip this week’s episode.
