Bob’s special guest is both directly and indirectly responsible for billions of dollars worth of referred business per year. (Over $14.2 Billion in 2018 alone!) CNN even called him the “Father of Modern Networking.” He’s also authored 23 books, and when you think of Dr. Ivan Misner, Founder of BNI (Business Network International) you probably think about…business. His newest book however, “Who’s in Your Room?: The Secret to Creating Your Best Life” is not focused on business.

Influential Detachment is a very special topic for Bob because he considers some of his biggest and most devastating failures in life to have been very connected with the amount of emotional “attachment” he felt to that which he desired. Once he became aware of the destructiveness of attachment, he then began to work on this issue and saw amazing results. Does he still struggle with it? He’s the first one to say, “Absolutely!” The difference is with awareness he’s able to take the proper steps and move into Positive (and Influential) Detachment, which is what he’ll share with you today. It’s a very thought-provoking episode!
