Founder and CEO

David Finkel is the founder and CEO of Maui Mastermind®, one of the world’s premier business coaching companies who helps businesses in the $1-20 million range build their companies to sell, scale, or own passively.  He’s the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 11 books, including his most recent bestseller, SCALE, which he wrote with priceline.com cofounder Jeff Hoffman.

BusinessInterviews.com:  Can you expand on the difference between building a business vs. building a job?

David:  All businesses start at Level One (start-ups) feeling their way forward to launch their new venture. Those that survive reach Level Two (owner reliant businesses). It’s here that most companies get stuck. A Level Two business is a business that works, but only because the business owner is there every day to make it work.

The owner makes most of the key decisions and often is the one who generates most of the business.

BusinessInterviews.com: Why do you believe that leaders never have to choose between success and happiness?

Dr. Jay: If you want to be truly successful, part of your success depends on being happy. The goal is to find personal success that also leads to business or financial success. For example, you may be someone who has been successful but hasn’t taken the time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. In that case, tapping into one of the practices of personal leadership I recommend, Feel Fulfillment, is a way to help you feel that what you’re doing matters, and give you the perspective you need to realign with your goals. You become more successful when you embrace that success and let yourself feel it. By doing so, connect to an internal source of vitality that leaders need in order to strive.

Dr. Mary M. Gillam
M2G Dynamic Leadership Solutions, LLC
President & CEO

Imagine being married at age 14, giving birth to 17 children, and widowed at 48, with five teenage children still at home to raise. If that is not enough, you are now given sole responsibility for four of your little grandchildren – all under the age of six. That is the story of the paternal grandmother of Dr. Mary M. Gillam because that is exactly what happened to her. Dr. Gillam was one of those little grandchildren.

Despite growing up in very humbling conditions, Dr. Gillam was determined to succeed. With God as her guide and her grandmother as a role model, Dr. Gillam triumphed against the odds. After achieving the rank of Colonel in the United States Air Force, she was later selected to the Senior Executive Service Corps in the Department of Defense at the Pentagon. Destined to follow her dream of business ownership, in 2013, Dr. Gillam established M2G Dynamic Leadership Solutions, LLC. The company is a woman-owned, service-disabled veteran, small business specializing in information systems technology management and leadership development consulting services located in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.
