Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV,  is announcing its 11th season with two episodes in March, featuring Mike Skrypnek, author of Entrepreneur Secrets to a Grow Get Give Life and Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvery, authors of The Barefoot Spirit: How Hardship, Hustle, and Heart Built America’s #1 Wine Brand.

Mike Skrypnek, author of Entrepreneur Secrets to a Grow Get Give Life categorizes himself as a “mindset, transformational coach” teaching other entrepreneurs and business owners in mid-careers how to grow their business and gain more freedom to pursue their passions. In Skrypnek’s case, he wanted to make a bigger impact in life and started with one big goal – to give $1 million to charity every year; however, he wasn’t sure how to accomplish that. He wanted to live his passion seven days a week, not in the periphery, so he sought the advice of those who had done it prior. For Skrypnek this book is a byproduct of a lifetime of experience that he felt would be beneficial for others so he wanted to get it out there.

Skrypnek felt it was important he write this book to get the message out because ‘give, grow, get’ means different things to different people. It can mean growing your business, your personal wealth, and getting the freedom entrepreneurs seek to give back as a result of that freedom. He used the word “impact” as his guide in order to build “a mountain of credibility” to give as many people as possible the opportunity to live their passion. Once people find that passion, he adds, “it changes everything.”

Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey, authors of The Barefoot Spirit: How Hardship, Hustle, and Heart Built America’s #1 Wine Brand, turned their best-selling book into an audiobook to take the message where the people are. As nationally recognized speakers, both Houlihan and Harvey noticed the number of people with earbuds on kept increasing. They found people weren’t listening to music, but podcasts and audiobooks, and that sparked the idea.

The book is about lessons they learned the hard way – it’s about learning about business by actually doing it. What makes this audiobook unique is that the audience is part of the action, they have including big names as characters such as Ed Asner, and they are the first business book to employ the audio theater platform. As Houlihan explains it, “The best way to convey a business principle is through story and the best way to convey a story is thought business theater.” He adds, “If you really want to engage people, the mobile generation, you have to entertain them.”

It also serves as a way to educate employees about how the company they work for got started. Harvey says, “When an employee understands the founders, their principles and challenges, they’re more engaged, work better together and have better team spirit.” She adds that understanding helps reduce turnovers – which are the number one hidden cost for any business.

All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.  

Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.

“Our episodes this month change how we see business. We have great hero leaders like Mike talking about giving money back while growing your wealth and Michael and Bonnie reinventing the concept of the business audiobook,” Hayzlett said. “Love that our authors are finding new and creative ways to engage a larger audience and get their messages across.”
