In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with the Writer, Publisher & Journalist of Catapult Bookwriting, Mike Ulmer.Mike's journey from sports journalism to business storytelling is a fascinating one. After spending three decades in sports journalism, he transitioned into the business world. He noticed a common thread among many people he interacted with in the business network - they struggled to tell their stories or present themselves effectively. This observation led him to develop a formula for writing great business books and assisting others in their writing endeavors.Mike attributes much of his success to networking and word-of-mouth referrals. He believes that writing a book should be an enjoyable and adventurous process, and that every book is a journey of self-discovery. His book, "Show and Tell Writing," serves as a guide for those embarking on the book-writing process.According to Mike, a great business book should have three key elements: a compelling proposition, a meaningful backstory, and practical tips for readers to apply the information. He also advocates for brevity, suggesting that 20,000 words are sufficient to convey a great story and provide valuable advice. He encourages authors to challenge themselves to write just 200 words a day over 100 days, resulting in a 20,000-word book. This would typically translate to around 100-130 pages, depending on factors such as font size and visuals.Key Points from the Episode:Mike Ulmer's background in sports journalism and transition into the business worldThe development of a formula for writing great business books and helping others succeed in writingThe importance of networking and word-of-mouth referrals in Mike's successThe concept of writing a book as a fun and adventurous journey of self-discoveryCoaching and guidance offered by Mike to aspiring authorsThe book "Show and Tell Writing" as a guide for the book-writing processThe importance of a compelling proposition, meaningful backstory, and practical tips in a great business bookMike's advocacy for brevity in book length, suggesting 20,000 words as sufficientThe power of storytelling and finding exceptional stories within ourselvesThe significance of listening and asking the right questions to uncover profound truths in someone's lifeAbout Mike Ulmer:Mike Ulmer is a seasoned journalist with 30 years of experience, specializing in helping clients craft compelling business narratives through the medium of books.

In this episode, Ayesha talked about the FDA's acceptance of AstraZeneca's supplemental biologics license application (sBLA) for a self-administered option of its nasal influenza vaccine FluMist Quadrivalent. While FluMist has been in the market since 2003, AstraZeneca is now seeking FDA authorization for a self-administered option of the vaccine. By offering a more accessible and flexible self-administered option, the company and experts in the field hope it will help increase uptake of the flu vaccine, especially as flu vaccinations have been on the decline in recent years.Ayesha and the editorial team also talked about a new ad from GSK Canada that features Wayne Gretzky, as well as a younger, AI-generated Gretzky, raising awareness about RSV vaccination among older adults. The ad features young Gretzky reminding his older self to get his RSV vaccine as older adults are at a greater risk of developing complications from RSV infection. Hear more about the ad featuring the Canadian hockey icon.Read the full articles here:FluMist Nasal Flu Vaccine Gets FDA Consideration for Self-AdministrationGSK Canada's New RSV Vaccine Ad Features Wayne Gretzky, Young and OldFor more life science and medical device content, visit the Xtalks Vitals homepage.Follow Us on Social MediaTwitter: @Xtalks Instagram: @Xtalks Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Xtalks.Webinars/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/xtalks-webconferences YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/XtalksWebinars/featured
“Job security” is the buzz phrase in this subscriber's mailbag edition of the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast. From Sheng Peng to John McCarthy to David Quinn to Mike Grier to Jonathan Becher to Hasso Plattner to the literal concept of the Sharks in San Jose, everybody's job security is questioned. Alaskan_ice started us off nice though, wondering if Sheng or Keegan have ever "geeked out" during an interview? (6:20) Gary To asked if Tomas Hertl is slowing down. (13:00) Embrace_the_rebuild asked where Sheng and Keegan would bet the San Jose Sharks would finish, over/under 34.5 Points? (17:30) Also, do the Sharks have any attractive Trade Deadline pieces? Lizbeth DeSelm checked in on the severity of Logan Couture's injury (26:50) and just how good is Macklin Celebrini? Chris Boucher-Lam wondered if the end is nigh for Marc-Edouard Vlasic and if the San Jose Sharks should buy him out this summer. (34:15) Bring Back Celebrini! asked who's worth bringing back from this current Sharks squad and what type of UFAs should they target this summer. (38:50) Just Steve inquired as to what the Sharks' scouting presence in Russia is. (49:10) Alex Genadinik wondered about Mike Grier's job security (51:00). Also, if the Pittsburgh Penguins' top-10 2024 first-round pick doesn't convey, does that mean the Pens' 2025 first-rounder is unprotected? matthias893 asked if there are any young, affordable NHL-caliber offensive defensemen available for the Sharks? (59:00) Anthony Morris inquired about Jonathan Becher's job security. (1:01:45) Zeke followed up about Quinn and McCarthy's job security? (1:07:20) Supreme_dream wondered how the Sharks D prospects were coming along? (1:18:40) Teddy asked if any Barracuda prospects look ready for the NHL? (1:34:00) Jon Swenson wondered who we thought was the best goaltender not in the NHL? Fin Coe asked about the difference between dealing with Bob Boughner and Quinn? (1:42:10) Amy asked if Grier and Quinn are in danger of losing their jobs right now. (1:45:30) Jodv wondered when Sheng would get on Threads. (1:46:30) Jamnjon asked how high would you pick a defenseman in the 2024 Draft? (1:51:00) SummoningSalt had this gem of a question: “In 1984, Wayne Gretzky injured his shoulder. In his time gone from the team, the Oilers went into a tailspin, losing 5 straight while being outscored 33-9. This included brutal beatings of 9-2 and 11-0. “Is it possible that Logan Couture is Wayne Gretzky and the Sharks are the 1983-1984 Edmonton Oilers?” (1:55:00) Brownagedon requested a detailed analysis of William Eklund's season. (1:56:20) Kristian wondered if a perfect storm is brewing to blow the Sharks out of San Jose, indirectly questioning Sheng's job security. (2:08:00) Christopher MacDonald asked if the 2023-24 San Jose Sharks will get any better, or if this is it. (2:13:45) SJShorky wondered if Hasso Plattner would sell the team.

Scott Hannan joins the San Jose Hockey Now Podcast – and it's a family reunion! Really! But before we find out, between Keegan and Sheng, who's related to Hannan (1:17:24), let's talk about some of the big San Jose Sharks news. What's going on with Kevin Labanc (1:25)? What was up with the Frank Seravalli report that he was going to be waived? Radim Simek was actually waived (20:25). Mikael Granlund and Logan Couture are still on the mend (25:35).

So who on the show is related to Hannan (1:18:00)? Why did Hannan think the Sharks weren't interested in him in the 1997 Draft (1:19:25)? He gives details about how Tim Burke grilled him in his pre-Draft interview. Who did he think would pick him? Hannan shares who bought a katana sword (and brought it home on the plane) when the San Jose Sharks started the season in Japan in 1998 (1:24:30). Hannan talks about his breakout 2003-04 campaign, when he shut down Peter Forsberg in the playoffs and hung up on Wayne Gretzky when the Great One tried to call him to tell him about his selection to Team Canada's 2004 World Cup-winning squad (1:32:40). Alexander Ovechkin called Hannan the league's "toughest defenseman to play against" – also, who was tough for Hannan to handle (1:37:40)? How did the rule changes in 2005-06 affect Hannan's career (1:40:45)? How good was Marc-Edouard Vlasic as a teenage rookie in 2006-07 (1:44:20)? Jason Demers had a great Hannan story (1:45:35). Which was the best Sharks team that Hannan was a part of, the one that he thought should have won the Cup (1:50:50)? Hannan talks about his increased role on “Sharks Pregame Live” and “Sharks Postgame Live” (1:56:30). He chats about Demers joining the broadcast (2:02:58).
