Welcome to Episode 226 of Building My Legacy.

In this podcast we talk with author and motivational speaker Mason Harris whose book, The Chutzpah Advantage, explores the eight key behaviors and characteristics that create the skillset of chutzpah. “The Chutzpah Guy” — as he’s known — walks us through many of those key behaviors, explaining that somebody with chutzpah both conceives of an idea and then actually implements it. He contrasts that with people who pass up good opportunities because they don’t want to “rock the boat.” Our discussion will be fascinating for would-be entrepreneurs, people looking to grow their business or anyone ready to move their career forward.

So if you want to know:

  • The positive and negative sides of chutzpah
  • How a sense of purpose is so critical to survival and real success
  • Why we need to recognize that, although we can’t control what happens to us, we can control our response
  • The importance of handling objections when you need to get a project done
  • How humility is an important part of chutzpah
