“It's up to you to decide who you want to be.”
— Eric Partaker

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Eric Partaker. Eric has been named “CEO of the Year” at the 2019 Business Excellence Awards, one of the “Top 30 Entrepreneurs in the UK” by Startups Magazine, and among “Britain's 27 Most Disruptive Entrepreneurs” by The Telegraph. His work has featured on over 7 major TV stations, in the Wall Street Journal, and The Economist. He has also appeared on The Apprentice as a guest judge.

So, why have an entrepreneur on the show? Well, Eric's other business is that he helps entrepreneurs and leaders perform at their best through his high-performance coaching. He is one of 300 people worldwide certified as a High-Performance Coach, by the High-Performance Institute. He has also completed a coaching certification and apprenticeship with Professor BJ Fogg, who leads Stanford University’s Behavior Design Lab.

Over the last 20 years, Eric has advised Fortune 50 CEOs while at McKinsey & Company, helped build Skype’s multi-billion dollar success story, and co-founded Chilango where he’s also Co-CEO. Chilango has been described by Elite Business Magazine as “arguably the most exciting fast-food company of the decade” and is also the most successfully crowdfunded restaurant chain in the world.

I wanted to sit down and talk to Eric, after being introduced to him by Olly Richards, because he has a very unique perspective on high performance and how we can achieve it. I know every single one of us in the audience would love to be at a higher performance level, and I love Eric's approach, as you'll see throughout the podcast.

It's a wide-ranging and great conversation, and I think you'll see why he and I hit it off every time we hang out! Enjoy!
