I love the concept of being “not almost there.” It carries a sense of never-ending progress and improvement, knowing that it’s important to strive for what you need and want because you’re not almost there yet.
But I wasn’t sure if my interpretation is what Joe Chura means with Not Almost There.
Joe is an entrepreneur, inventor, and investor philanthropist. He founded and bootstrapped two companies, Launch Digital Marketing and Dealer Inspire, that both became two of the fastest growing companies in America, earning the #39 spot on the Inc. 500 and #5 ranking on Crain’s Chicago Fast 50.
In 2018, Joe sold both businesses to Cars.com in Chicago’s largest acquisition of the year, and he continues to lead their growth and innovation today as CEO. Joe’s passion is using his leadership and health and fitness experiences to help others achieve their goals, which led him to start his podcast, Not Almost There, in January of 2021.
I find out during our conversation what Almost Not There means and how he got started with it. Then we discuss Joe’s unique meditation ritual, what you can learn from people (good and not-so good), the importance of small moments, and a whole lot more.
I’ve been making an effort to have deeper conversations on this podcast, especially since the shift from The Productivityist Podcast to A Productive Conversation. I think this is one episode that hits the mark. I hope you’ll think so, too.
