065 Gene Hammett with Jared Easley and Kimanzi Constable | Work Hard Play Hard Summit in Maui – Part 3

Gene Hammett with Jared Easley and Kimanzi ConstableMost conferences are usually structured the same. We walk way with tons of useful information, but rarely do we build lasting friends or more importantly, transform our businesses because of attending these events. Think back on the last conference you attended…what have you applied to your business? How about the stack of business cards you collected there that just sits on your desk?
Well, the 3 of us understand, so Jared Easley (Host of Starve the Doubts) and Kimanzi Constable (Author of “Are You Living or Just Existing?”) and I created a new and different kind of conference. Discover more about the WORK HARD PLAY HARD SUMMIT here in this episode. We tell you all about the “work hard” part of this experience. Get an overview of this whole experience in Part 1 (on the Starve the Doubts podcast) and for Part 2, we discuss the “play hard” at KimanziConstable.com.
