TC321: Cafe Book Club interview with Ana Weber – author of Passion, Spirit, Purpose
In this week’s podcast host Robin Masiewicz and co-host Amy Frost welcome back bestselling author and success coach Ana Weber, author of Passion, Spirit, Purpose – 3 Formulas to the DOXA Method to Empower You to Love Your Life to discuss what we’ve learned from this great little book.
In this interview Ana recaps some ideas from the book, and describes how it has impacted her readers. Ana is now in the process of developing a companion workbook so we can dive deeper into the DOXA method (which we’ll share on here on Transformation Cafe when it’s available).
Amy also tells a story about how she has been applying some of the DOXA principles to her work with veterans and their families, and what she’s experienced as a result. It illustrates how these concepts can be applied in a real-world setting.
The consummate “people person,” Ana approaches every person and every new experience with joy and love. Her employees love to work with her, and her friends love to be around her. And at every company she has helped to manage, she’s helped engineer massive revenue growth. As an example, she took one company from annual revenues of $250,000 to $62 million in just five years, while creating 83 new full-time jobs. If you ask Ana the secret of her long string of business successes, she’ll tell you it’s all about building relationships.
