In this podcast interview, Dave Skattum and Douglas Kruger talk about how Douglas went from skinny and scrawny to muscular and healthy and how listeners can build a strong foundation for health by finding an activity they love, making a small compliment and lowering the bar, and the importance of sleep for good health.
Kruger discusses new book “Virus Proof Your Business” including:
- How he wrote it in 7 days
- 50 tips on keeping a business going in hard times
- How to use a “Point, a Story and an Application” to make persuasive points.
Skattum said, “The first time I saw Douglas was on the big stage at an International Toastmasters convention. He was performing his magic as a professional communicator all the way from South Africa. I have watched him for years as he helps people around the world improve the way they think about business success and becoming an expert in your sphere of influence. I admired his balance as a professional speaker and its demands and his personal life. I always wanted to talk to Douglas about how he does it, I wasn’t let down in this interview. If we will think about and apply the thoughts and ideas Douglas presents in this podcast, a person’s life will never be the same.”
