“If you don`t know what your `why` is, then probably your `how` and `what` are wrong”– Brian Carter
Brian Carter is an author, comedian, digital marketer and adviser amongst other things. In today`s show he comes back to tell us about his new book – “The Cowbell Principle” which is based on the `More cowbell` sketch. The maid idea is that everybody needs to find their `cowbell` – what they love and always want more of, to be successful in any aspect of their life. By understanding yourself and what you do best, you can then go about getting it.
The `Cowbell principle` is based on the idea that for people to buy from you, you need to offer them something that they really want. In today`s show, Brian Carter, one of the authors of “The Cowbell Principle” comes back to tell us all about how to use this principle to get success in all aspects of your life. Brian tells us how to take criticism constructively, the importance of finding your `why`, and how to get a great team going.
