Author Charlie Gilkey Will Teach You How To Start Finishing

The Published Author Podcast

Drawing from his military service to a PhD in Philosophy, Charlie Gilkey teaches entrepreneurs, small business owners, and professional creatives how to get stuff done. In this episode Charlie talks about how his first book, The Small Business Lifecycle: Taking the Right Steps at the Right Time to Grow Your Small Business, wasn’t the first book he set out to write, but it ended up being a growth engine for his business anyway. His second and latest book, Start Finishing: How to Go from Idea to Done, was delayed for years because Charlie thought someone else had already written it, but an epiphany pushed him to write his book anyway, which went on to become a bestseller and drive his business to new heights.

EP 322: Building A Stronger Team With Productive Flourishing Founder Charlie Gilkey

What Works

This week, we're examining how we nurture the relationships we have with the people who work with us. I'll be honest with you: there are so many different places I'd like to take this episode. There are so many of the lessons I've learned that I'd like to pass on. Luckily, the lessons I've learned have largely come through conversations I've had on this very podcast! And there's one conversation in particular that I come back to time & time again. It was my first interview with my friend and founder of Productive Flourishing, Charlie Gilkey. Looking back on this conversation, I can see that there were already lessons that had started to come into focus about how I work with people and what it looks like to nurture relationships with team members. But what I can also see is how much this conversation actually helped to solidify those learnings into how my thinking & approach have changed since. Charlie and I talk about the operational components of the mindset shift I just dug into. We talk about the art of management, whether for one or for many. We discuss what prompted him to bring his core team on as employees instead of as independent contractors. And how we keeps his team—and himself—from becoming over committed and overwhelmed, as well as how he structures his time to enhance his creativity. The post EP 322: Building A Stronger Team With Productive Flourishing Founder Charlie Gilkey appeared first on What Works.
