Awaken the Wonder Inside—Become A Master Asker

Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV,  is kicking off the new year by announcing a new episode featuring Mark Victor Hansen and Crystal Dwyer Hansen, authors of Ask! The Bridge From Your Dreams To Your Destiny.

The book is a guide to awaken the inate ability of every human being to ask questions. While kids are naturally inquisitive, Crystal says that “Over time, just through basic life rejections, people get shot down. That spirit of asking gets crushed out of them.” They say that asking is truly the only thing that has the ability to reveal what’s hidden in our lives and “that is powerful.”

Learning the magic of asking can be achieved by three equally important channels: ask yourself, ask others, ask God. The book is chock-full of personal anecdotes and tidbits capable of re-instilling our natural curiosity to ask questions. The genesis of the book, which is extremely relevant, is to go back to a time in our lives where we were unafraid to ask for everything we wanted.  “It’s important for each of us to become master askers,” the Hansens said. That’s the main reason they wanted to bring this particular message to the world.

Mark Victor Hansen has authored many books, including the world-famous “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series. However, this is the first book he’s ever co-authored with his wife, Crystal Dwyer Hansen, a health and wellness author and entrepreneur in her own right. The Hansens were unsure about how their first foray into co-authoring would go, but according to Crystal, “It sort of fell into place kind of magically.” They discussed the framework of the book collectively, then each fell into their respective lanes of expertise, making collaboration a seamless process.

While everyone faces adversity, Mark Victor offers some sage advice, originated in his own hardship, including bankruptcy. He added, “I’ve always taken adversity and turn it into an advantage.” Out of this adversity, everyone can learn how to ask.

During the interview, they also covered the six destinies everyone has, a personal anecdote about their young grandson that directly correlates to the book’s themes, and a reminder that “one question can pivot your entire career.”

 

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.

“I’ve known Mark Victor for a number of years, and now his wife Crystal, and I can’t think of better people to kick off the new year with,” Hayzlett said. “They bring incredible insights as a result of their travels, speaking to people from all walks of life, and their life experiences. I’m positive our audience will find much needed inspiration in this interview, especially during these difficult times we’re experiencing.”

Creating Disruption in the Self-Help Book Industry

Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV, is announcing a new episode featuring Kelly Fuhlman, author of Be the Hero and Rescue Yourself: Creating the Inner Courage To Wear Your Own Cape.

Fuhlman, a first-time author, wrote the book to give people the opportunity to read and understand some of the lessons she learned throughout her life, while providing encouragement to journal their own ideas and solve their own problems. She says, “I have learned that people do better if they create their own strategy instead of someone handing it over to them.”

The book is about heroes in her own life that have come to her rescue and opened doors and opportunities; however, at the end of the day, it’s up to each and every single person to put in the work and rescue themselves. Fuhlman wanted to create a disruption in the self-help book industry and drive home the notion that life isn’t about “10 easy steps” – it’s far more complex than that.

After being laid off from the Disney Institute, she decided to write a book, start a podcast, and create opportunities for herself at a time where she felt the rug was being pulled from under her. These opportunities led to growth and learning, but the journey wasn’t a perfect one. In fact, one of the chapter titles in her book is  called, “My crown is crooked (and so is yours)” to reinforce the point that there’s no one path to success. Everyone must choose their own way and not rely on anyone else to rescue them.

Fuhlman wrote the book for anyone struggling to move forward, personally or professionally. This easy read aims to have great impact for readers as they reflect on the lessons learned and empowers them to write down their own thoughts, build their own plan, and move forward.

“At the end of the day, it’s up to you,” she concludes.

“Opportunities are available to everyone who wants them. Even during crisis, there are opportunities to be had. This episode provides a simple, yet meaningful message for anyone looking to move forward,” Hayzlett said. “After the year we had, we all want to move forward, but it’s simple – it all starts and begins with you. You are the hero of your own story.”

‘No Plan B’ – The Making of an Unapologetically Ambitious CEO

Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV,  is announcing a new episode featuring Shellye Archambeau, author of Unapologetically Ambitious: Take Risks, Break Barriers, and Create Success On Your Own Terms.

Archambeau recalled how even as a high school student, her goal was to become a CEO. While she didn’t have a full understanding then about the implications of running a corporation, she set her goals and pursued them becoming one of the first African-American tech CEOs in Silicon Valley. Her book’s core message is to teach readers how to get what they want out of life – professionally and personally, by being intentional. The book shares strategies, approaches, tactics, and hacks on how to go about it, despite it being hard.

Archambeau relates that when people say someone is “ambitious,” they don’t necessarily mean it as a compliment. She knew she wanted the word “ambitious” in the title; however, the “unapologetic” part was inspired by her friends. They noted that women tend to apologize for everything. She adds, “Everyone deserves the right to be ambitious and nobody should have to apologize for it.”

She recognizes she used to be one of those “overapologizers” and had to work on that throughout her career, “because in business, it makes you look weak.” Women apologize, not because they did something wrong but because it just makes everything better. Archambeau adds, “We use it like salt, it just makes everything better.”

Achambeau has a definition for ambition. She says it’s about being intentional – something she learned along the way simply by listening. It’s about paying close attention and watching other successful people and follow their path, take in all that knowledge and build it into your own plan. She adds, “There’s a lot of good advice that comes down if you actually listen to it.”

Archambeau encourages people to find mentors because they don’t have to have a “formal role.” Mentors are people that can offer you advice, counsel, and perspective so you can make decisions and take risks. “It is not weakness to take help, it’s actually a strength.”

She also imparts great advice for readers: “You have to be strategic about what you’re doing” and “Ambition alone won’t get your where you need to be.”

 

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.

“Shellye is a perfect example of what a great leader is. It’s all about listening, being strategic and working hard to achieve goals with as less distractions as possible,” Hayzlett said. “Her book serves as a reminder that, as a society, we need to de-stigmatize the word ‘ambition’ as a pejorative term, especially for women, but as something to strive for. I love having guests like Shellye who can challenge the norms of what great, unapologetic leadership looks like.”
