Show Notes

“In order to do the things you want to do, you need to be around the people that are doing it, in the places it’s happening.”  

That, in a nutshell, is The Proximity Principle and it’s the title of Ken Coleman’s book, which is a roadmap to figuring out what you want to do, where you want to go, and how you’re going to get there.  

For anyone, young or old, that feels they still have more to achieve in their career and is looking for clarity on how to put a plan together, this book is your answer.

Ken is a nationally syndicated radio host of The Ken Coleman Show, where he goes live on the air every day of the week taking calls and providing actionable advice for people looking for guidance in their careers.  He’s the former host of the Entreleadership Podcast, where he had the opportunity to interview hundreds of successful leaders and innovators and learn their secrets to success and prosperity.  

But for Ken, this wasn’t always the case.  There was a season in his career where he was struggling with the desire to do something different, to get out of his current situation and get into broadcasting, where he knew deep down was where he was meant to be.  

So, over the course of 7+ years he began to put himself in front of the right people and in the right places and after plenty of patience, persistence, and sacrifice he landed where he is today, at Ramsey Solutions, doing what he loves to do.  Little did he know at the time, it was The Proximity Principle at work.
