Today’s podcast guest is an “underground secret weapon” that you won’t want to miss. Mike Kim is a former CMO-turned-marketing consultant and business coach, who hosts The Brand You podcast. He has worked with people like Donald Miller, John Maxwell Team, and Catalyst.

In this episode, you’ll hear Mike get real about pain, change and grief, and how he slows down to work through hardships.

He unpacks how divorce changed him personally and professionally. He also answers the three questions he asks others to help them discover what they want to do with their life:

  1. What pisses you off?
  2. What breaks your heart?
  3. What problem do you want to solve?

Mike also answers a favorite question of mine: if you could go back in time, what would you do differently in your business? (Hear my answer to this question in episode 16 of Diary of a Doer.)
