Over the years, I've had the pleasure of interviewing people growing businesses in almost every market imaginable from trampoline parks to peanut butter. And from the farthest reaches of the world from Ukraine to South Africa. Despite all of those differences, they've all shared a commonality that today's guest does not share they could move. My guest today is a brilliant writer and entrepreneur who can't move anything but his face. It's not a joke. The only parts of his body he can move are his eyes and lips. His hands, feet, arms, and legs, are almost totally paralyzed, managing the occasional twitch and nothing more. And yet he has created an amazing life for himself. Using speech recognition technology, he's written articles read by more than 5 million people. He's also built several blogs that have made him millions of dollars. Now,

After nearly two decades in the corporate world of strategic branding and marketing, Kirsty found herself without a job and one year's salary to keep her afloat.

After several failed ideas, she discovered Amazon's fulfillment program -- FBA. As soon as she found this, she instantly knew it was the opportunity she had been looking for. Seven years, and over $16M in Physical Product sales on Amazon, Kirsty is also the co-founder of Real Coaching, where she has coached over 1,000 Amazon business owners. Now, let's hack...

My guest today is Jim McKelvey, a business person turned glassblower turned entrepreneur turned billionaire -- who has become a philanthropist, investor, and now an author. He's started a handful of companies, many that are still in business decades later. As he will tell you, every company he has started has also removed him from his leadership role. Although this doesn't sound like something to be proud of, Jim will tell you that this is one of the reasons for his success. After spending the better part of three decades innovating and building businesses, we mostly know him as the co-founder and designer of Square -- those little white squares we see plugged into phones and used to take credit card payments. Back in 2008, Jim, along with his soon-to-be Square co-founder Jack Dorsey, having just been removed as the CEO of Twitter decided

Jeff Platt had just graduated from college when he found himself in an interesting position -- his dad had just opened two trampoline parks, but he also needed to step back from the business. This was 2006, and Jeff decided at 21 years old to take the reigns and become the CEO of Sky Zone, a trampoline park company. He took charge, and without any real plan of action, he kept refining the parks and opening more and more locations. Somewhere along the way he decided that the real path to growth was in franchising parks to people around the world -- and this is exactly what he did. From those first two locations, they grew to over 200 locations around the world. 25 million people will visit a Sky Zone park this year, gen
