What does it look like to live the best version of yourself? At Success Made to Last, we explore that question with people who are living uncommon lives. Moreover, we have conversations with people and learn how they think differently and live their vision.
We are indebted to the thousands of guests who have graced our podcast with tactics, tips and tricks that have led to “best versions.” Collectively, they help us achieve our mission of providing effective tools to help you “practice greatness.”
Success Made to Last is a multi media company aiming to produce the world’s richest library of digital and print content to unleash the power of each of us to be the best we can be—for ourselves and the people around us.
Our Core Strength
We love inspiring stories emblematic of the tagline of our company- LIVE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF. Both of us have been publishing content for many years–in one form or another–from and with people worth reading and hearing. In summary, engaging with people who are living a life of purpose and meaning is immensely gratifying, and we want to bring that joy to you.
CREATIVE BOLDNESS AND COMMITMENT
We have built a Creative Boldness list for you…our Audience, that is a part of our COMMITMENT to excellence in podcasting. 1. We go the extra mile in research so we ask the “beautiful questions” that no other show considers. With that, we get the very best from our guests in terms of exclusive stories. 2. We don’t talk too much about ourselves, products or services. That’s just noise. 3. We are not safe or conservative when it comes to guests and content. Being safe doesn’t get to the heart of the matter. 4. Our shows are so good that we would listen to them if we were NOT a part of making them. They are THAT outstanding.
In short, we think that there is an art and science to podcasting. We are artisans at our craft, practicing greatness on a daily basis, creating a gift…or perhaps a piece of art to YOU…our audience. That’s our commitment.
