There are people who have excuses in life, and there are people who make excuses. Our guest today has every reason to make excuses, but instead has made a greater fortune.
We are joined by special guest Marie Cosgrove. Marie has written a book, Greater Fortune: Essential Lessons from the Entrepreneur Who Bought the Company who Fired Her.
Marie talks about the less than ideal start in her life she had and how that has impacted her to work hard. She shares the story of how her grandmother fought for her mother and her to give them life.
Marie was a single mom of 4 kids, she had sole custody and worked to be a top seller for the company she worked for. She was expecting a promotion but instead was fired because she was making too much money.
With the encouragement of friends, she started her own company. She used her mindset, perseverance, her faith and surrounded herself with others that believed in her to go after her dream.
Marie shares how the negative voices we sometimes listen to, pushed her to invest in leadership training so she could lead her team better.
To be inspired to be all you were created to be, listen to this episode on The Lead Up Podcast.

Happy May 14th. I am happy to share a lesson on mentorship today with you and hope you find great value in the ideas.
I grew up without great modeling and a dad who didn't and still doesn't have mentors. So, making mistakes is commonplace in the lives of those who don't seek advice from others.
In the episode you will listen to in episode 234, I share 3 types of mentors we all need but why you should also be there for others.
Make sure you leave us a comment and share it with your colleagues and friends.

We are joined by Fred Kienle on this episode of the LeadUp podcast.
Fred and Mike discuss the difference between being retired from a company and retired from life. You always have to have a purpose or you will waste away.
Fred has met many people during his 76 years and has observed that the ones who are healthier, happier, and stronger are those with good attitudes.
If you change your attitude you can change your life.
Good leaders stop and assess themselves, they ask themselves questions and then say, 'I got to get back on board. Take a deep breath.'
Fred believes that leadership is an attitude- everyone from the CEO to the person that answers the phone. Everyone should be the best at their position. Everyone is a leader. Listen in on this inspiring conversation with Fred Keinle and Mike Harbour
Fred's books Health with an Attitude and Success with an Attitude are available on Amazon.
