Leadership Principles and Historical Adventures with Author and Speaker Joel Hawbaker


The phrase “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” may be a cliche, but it applies in so many situations. Specifically, there’s a key word in there: make. You have to make the conscious decision to improve your situation. This episode’s guest, Joel Hawbaker, is no stranger to tough times – in the span of three years, he learned his dad had terminal cancer, got divorced, and lost his home. After hitting rock bottom while wandering aimlessly around a Walmart, Joel realized he could turn things around. He just had to commit to his self-improvement and consistently keep working at it. The end result? He’s developed leadership methods that anyone can use to help grow their business – or even just become more comfortable in their own skin.

Joel is an award-winning teacher, author, speaker, and frequent podcast guest who loves helping young leaders overcome obstacles and grow through courage, confidence, and humility. By sharing personal stories of failure and success, with plenty of humor and engagement mixed in, Joel teaches leadership principles that audiences can apply as soon as they leave the event. His book, Inverted Leadership: Lead Others Better By Forgetting About Yourself was a #1 best-seller on Amazon.
