Maria Dismondy Shows How to Write, Publish, and Build a Business as a Mom on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 54

When you need a particular book and it doesn’t exist, sometimes you just have to write it yourself. But it takes focus and determination to turn a first book into a career change, especially while bringing up three children. Maria Dismondy took on that challenge, and now she’s an award-winning writer of children’s literature, and has built a publishing company to help other women share their work. In this episode of Hack the Process Maria will tell us what mentors and mastermind groups have taught her about delegating responsibilities, why she continues to invest her time and energy in social networking, and how she structures her routine to get it all done in a few hours a day without sacrificing family time.

Find Out What a $100 MBA is Worth from Omar Zenhom on Hack the Process Podcast, Episode 39

Omar Zenhom realized a semester into a Wharton MBA program that his ten years of independent teaching experience already gave him the background to teach people what they really needed to know to run a business. His popular $100 MBA podcast now has close to 900 episodes, and it’s helping to grow the audience for his library of business training materials. Along the way, he realized he needed a better tool to host his online classes, so he developed the Webinar Ninja service to scratch his own itch, and turned it into a software-as-a-service business by popular demand.

In this episode, Omar will tell us:

  • why he believes that having immigrant parents broadened his perspective and strengthened his resolve,
  • how leveraging your strengths can help set you in the most sustainable direction for your business, and
  • what it’s like running a company with a cofounder and partner who’s also your spouse.
