In this weeks episode, Peter chats with Michael Hsu, CEO & Founder of DeepSky. A company dedicated to helping entrepreneurs grow profitably by focusing on processes and key performance indicators (KPIs). His mission: happiness. Not only to be happy himself, but to help those around him strive for it as well. Listen as Peter and Michael discuss the importance of living the life you want and not putting off “life” until later, and why staying on a “path of purpose” is better than standing still. Stick around for the Reaper Round where Michael breaks a sweat in the first bite!

LIVE YOUR MISSION | #015: Sugar-free gum that gives back? Tyler Merrick made it happen!

Listen to why you should approach growing your business through "chapters", learn to throw ego out of the window, and focus on adapting to the rapidly-changing markets.
