Ask Altucher

Today is a huge day for all of us at The Choose Yourself Network. Today we're publishing our 300th episode of Ask Altucher.

What started as an experiment has now become a way of life for so many people, including us.

So from James, Claudia, myself, and everyone else involved in getting you these shows every day, thank you for listening...

And to celebrate today, James and Claudia invited a good friend, Jim Shells, to be their guest on Ask Altucher today.

Jim and James meet two years at a Jason Gaignard Mastermind talk.

Jim's the founder of Board Meetings International,an organization that exists to strengthen the relationship parents have with their children.

Jim noticed while traveling the world and speaking with thousands of entrepreneurs that many are feeling burnt out. In their never-ending quest to build their businesses, they've often forgotten about why they were doing it.

They worked so much to be able to spend quality time with their families.

As Jim says in his brand-new book The Family Board Meeting, "intending to spend time with your kids isn't the same as actually doing it."

And he goes on to say, "Time together isn't the same as quality time together."

So he's created his family board meetings.

According to Jim, there are three basic ground rules for making a board meeting a rewarding experience:

  • It must be one-on-one (i.e. not with your spouse or other children).
  • No electronics allowed.
  • It must be a fun activity, which the kid gets to choose, with focused reflection on questions like, what was your favorite part and why?

This process can be used in your business relationships also to quickly find out which ones may not work out.
