167 The One with John Fenton

Executive coaching, John Fenton, CEO Sensei, Executive consulting, 5-minute mastery, leadership coaching, professional coaching, CEO coaching Scaling UP! Nation, it’s hard to run your life. Everyone expects the most from you, and you expect the most out of yourself. This leaves most of us running faster and faster until we run out of gas. We all need to take time to get gas and make sure we take care of ourselves before we take care of everything else. The problem is, we don’t. Stave yourself too long without that needed gas, and you may not have the option of refueling.

My lab partner in today’s episode is John Fenton, the “CEO Sensei.” John J Fenton is a Certified Success Principles™ Trainer, an award-winning speaker, best-selling author, and leading authority in Leadership.
