Should you change your job or career? We share a quick way to find out. And if it’s a career change, we use some rock and roll songs to help you discover how soon to make a move.

Is it time to change jobs? Or is a career change called for? We discuss how to know the difference on The BIGG Success Show today. Here’s a summary of that discussion.

Picture this – you wake up. As you begin to gain consciousness, you realize that it’s Monday morning. The weekend is over. Another week has begun. How do you feel?

This Monday morning test tells you a lot. It’s your intuition talking to you. If you’re excited about the week ahead, you’re in the right job. If you’re dreading the week ahead, you may need to think about a change. The question is:

Do you need to change your JOB or do you need to change your CAREER?

Kobe Bryant had the heart of a champion. We share seven ways this helped him become one of the greatest basketball players ever.

This show is a tribute to Kobe Bryant. It’s our way of saying “Thanks” for inspiring us all to be our best self. A summary of our conversation on this BIGG Success Show podcast follows.

Zero. That’s how many points 12-year old Kobe Bryant scored at summer basketball camp.

Nothing. Not a free throw. Not a layup. Not a lucky shot that went in.

With his confidence shaken, he says he almost quit the game of basketball. At 12 – before he even became a teenager. Thankfully for all of us basketball fans, he didn’t.

And just six years later, he was the 13th pick in the NBA draft. Straight out of high school, a first-round draft pick. Truly, a rare feat.

He ended his career with 5 NBA championships, 2 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player awards, 2 scoring titles, and 2 Olympic Gold Medals.

He became one of the greatest players to ever play the game. How did he transform himself from zero, literally, to hero? He had the heart of a champion. We’ll share seven ways this helped him become one of the greatest basketball players ever.

This work-from-home mom wanted to contribute to her family’s finances. She did more than that – she turned a $3,000 investment into a $740 million business.

On The BIGG Success Show, we discuss the story of Doris Christopher, Founder of The Pampered Chef. With $3,000 borrowed from a life insurance policy, she created a business with sales of $740 million a year, at the time she sold The Pampered Chef to Warren Buffett. Here’s a summary of our discussion on the podcast.

This show is a continuation our last two shows. First, we talked about 5 easy steps to personal leadership. Then, last time, we discussed your arena of service – which is about who you serve and where you serve them. Today, we want to talk about the BIGG Success Power Triangle. We’ll use Doris Christopher’s story as an example.

Work-from-home and make money

[George] One semester, my students and I, at the University of Illinois, participated in a guest lecture given by Doris, who is an alum. The information here comes from my notes of her presentation.

She also documented her story in her book, The Pampered Chef: The Story of One of America’s Most Beloved Companies*.

Doris is the quintessential successful work-from-home mom. This former home economics teacher started The Pampered Chef in 1980 with $3,000 borrowed from a life insurance policy. At the time, she was a 34-year old wife and mother of two. She had no business experience.

Like 69% of entrepreneurs, Doris started her business from home. Her basement was the initial distribution center and headquarters for The Pampered Chef.
