Listen to the episode:

In this episode of the donothing podcast, I chat with John Anderson, a lifelong business strategist and entrepreneur. Listen and learn John’s smart business advice on achieving your goals, his struggles with addiction, and why perseverance is the key to a full, successful life at any age. 

John also shares how we can all enjoy the second half of life with even more passion and purpose than the first through his recently published book Replace Retirement: Living Your Legacy in the Exponential Age and in his coaching business.

For the past 20 years, John has coached CEOs and executive teams in developing clear, measurable goals underpinned with structures and insights to achieve both professional and personal success. John’s entrepreneurial spirit has guided much of his professional life starting in the office furniture industry where he built, then sold, a leading office furniture dealership. 

He was the first coach to work with Verne Harnish of Gazelles Inc., which is considered one of the leading executive coaching organizations. John is also active in corporate speaking and coaching, and has equity in a variety of entrepreneurial companies including The CEO Advantage, Dogtopia, VizBe, Exponential Advisor, and more.

In this episode, you’ll also learn:

  • John’s advice on building healthy habits
  • How John motivates himself to stay physically fit
  • What John’s father taught him about perseverance
  • The importance of goal-setting 
  • What lessons John learned from his addiction struggles
