Project: Success! Interview with Mark Sieverkropp of Happen to Your Career (#040)


Mark Sieverkropp is back with us! He first joined us in episode #003, talking about purpose. Then, he joined me for a two-part discussion about exercising and dieting.

Today, Mark is sharing some great information and tips about using projects to achieve success. He has also written an e-book called, “Project: Success.” And you’ll be able to get a free copy today!

My Plug-of-the-Week is Stitcher. Stitcher is a fantastic app for subscribing to and listening to podcasts. I used Stitcher for a year and a half, and then I tried the Apple Podcast app. I’m now back to using Stitcher. One of the big things I like about Stitcher is that I can listen at 2x speed, and it sounds better than 1.5x speed on the Apple Podcast app. You can also download the episodes on Wi-fi and listen to them anywhere (nice for helping my data plan go farther).

Mark shares several great things about using projects:

  • Specificity breeds results.
  • Parkinson’s Law: “work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion.”
  • No one is an island

Here’s two resources Mark recommends:

After the interview, I introduce a little bit about my goals for 2014. I’ll be covering this more in the next episode, and sharing different ways that I’m approaching them this year.

Other interviews coming up include Dave Jackson with the School of Podcasting and Kent Sanders from The Artist’s Suitcase podcast.

Don’t forget to get your free copy of Mark’s book, “Project: Success” for a limited time!

      Glad to have you, Mark!

  • Lily Kreitinger

    Wow! Starting the year with a great interview! Great to hear both of you on this episode!

    • Mark Sieverkropp

      Thanks Lil :) It was a great interview to do! I talk to Josh all the time, but this different setting was fun!

      • Lily Kreitinger

        Both of you sound so relaxed and comfortable. Honored to have two great podcasters on my friend list! :)

        • Joshua Rivers

          Thanks, Lily. Like Mark said, we talk almost every week, so it’s easier to sound relaxed. We usually talk mostly about 24 and just a little about other parts of life. It was actually nice to reverse it :)
