You will never meet a more PASSIONATE and ENTHUSIASTIC man than this week's guest, BEN NEWMAN. Ben is one of the most sought-after PERFORMANCE coaches in America. He's worked with a lot of people and companies you'll know, and a few that will be new to you. We've known each other for so long that in many ways, this feels a lot like a FIRESIDE CHAT between two old friends. Ben released his new book, UNCOMMON LEADERSHIP, earlier this month. It immediately jumped to the top of the WALLSTREET JOURNAL LIST, and several other bestseller lists as well. This is an UPLIFTING book you're going to want to read. Ben doesn't just talk about different theoretical paths to leadership, he talks firsthand about the people he's worked with over the years including JERRY RICE, JON GORDON, and several Olympic and MMA athletes. As Ben explains, there is NO SINGLE WAY TO LEAD. He peels back these uncommon journeys to success and helps readers understand why and how they can be great leaders, too. For example, Ben has been blessed to be the mental performance coach for the ALABAMA FOOTBALL TEAM over the past several seasons. You'll want to hear what he has to say about working closely with COACH NICK SABAN, and one of the coach's beliefs about how to change your MINDSET when you practice that YOU CAN APPLY to any challenge in your life. If you want to know what makes Coach Saban uncommon, this strategy alone will convince you. We also spend a lot of time comparing NOTES, sharing STRATEGIES, and trading DETAILS on things every one of you can apply to your own lives. One of these is his signature strategy called THE BURN. THE BURN is the underlying motivation that resides in each one of us and Ben reveals how to DIG DEEP and TRANSFORM your Burn into real-life actionable items to help you do great things. You'll also want to hear what Ben has to say about how FAITH often plays a central role in some of the great leaders he's worked with. We exchange some FRANK and HUMBLE thoughts on the subject. Ben has a simple but insightful take on one of the differences between great and not-so-great leaders. Pay attention to what Ben has to say about MY vs. OUR. It's GOLD. Finally, I want you all the know the kind of man Ben Newman is. In honor of his mother who was a teacher, Ben is donating ALL PROCEEDS from Uncommon Leadership to a CHARITY that helps teachers' pay for classroom supplies and activities. To date, he's DONATED $50,000 to this cause. And that, my friends, is what an UNCOMMON LEADER does.

Sentenced to sixty-five years in a Texas prison, Damon West once had it all. Damon West, M.S. Criminal Justice, is a college professor, nationally known keynote speaker and best-selling author (with best-selling author and motivational speaker Jon Gordon) of The Coffee Bean: A simple Lesson to Create Positive Change. His first book and autobiography, The Change Agent: How a Former College QB Sentenced to Life in Prison Transformed His World, was published just three years after his release from a Texas maximum-security prison. At 20 years old, he was a Division 1 starting quarterback at the University of North Texas, when he suffered a career ending injury. He turned to hard core drugs to cope with disappointments of life. After graduation, he worked in the United States Congress, was a national fundraiser on a U.S. Presidential campaign and eventually trained to be a stock-broker for United Bank of Switzerland (UBS). One day at UBS, he was introduced to methamphetamines; he became instantly hooked—and the lives of so many innocent people would forever be changed by the choices he made in order to feed his insatiable meth habit. After a fateful discussion during his incarceration with a seasoned convict, Damon had a spiritual awakening. He learned that, like a coffee bean changing with the application of heat and pressure, he was capable of changing the environment around him. Armed with a program of recovery, a renewed faith, and a miraculous second chance at life, Damon emerged from over seven years of prison a changed man. His story of redemption, grit and determination continues to inspire audiences today. Today, Damon lives a life of recovery and service, going to meetings and sharing his story all over the country with schools, church's, athletic teams, corporations, conferences and inside correctional facilities. Over the past few years, he has been sharing the Coffee Bean lesson with dozens of college football teams such as Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, and Texas, and countless schools and businesses. His #BeACoffeeBean message has inspired thousands from Walmart to the US Army to the NBA. Damon's story has been featured both nationally and globally. His second book, The Coffee Bean, co-authored with best-selling author Jon Gordon, became an instant best-seller and a part of Forbes' “Top Twenty Books You Need to Read to Crush 2020.” Damon is passionate about the Coffee Bean message and loves sharing how it changed his life and how it can change yours, too. His latest book (with coauthor, Jon Gordon), The Coffee Bean for Kids, is the genesis for Coffee Bean Clubs being started by students at schools all over America.
