Get Up Nation® Podcast Episode 86 Guests: Michael Houlihan & Bonnie Harvey,

Get Up Nation®! My name is Ben Biddick. I’m the Creator and Host of the Get Up Nation Show, and Co-Author of the Best Selling book Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with Michael Houlihan and Bonnie Harvey. They’re the founders of the world’s largest wine brand, international keynote speakers, and New York Times Bestselling authors of The Barefoot Spirit: How Hardship, Hustle, and Heart Built America’s #1 Wine Brand and The Entrepreneurial Culture: 23 Ways to Engage and Empower Your People. From humble beginnings in a laundry room of a rented farmhouse to the boardroom of the world’s largest wine company, E&J Gallo, they learned valuable lessons crucial to any business. They consult and train startups and Fortune 500 companies on brand building and company culture. Their books are required reading in more than 50 schools of entrepreneurship. They’re highly recommended by companies seeking to increase their sales and engage, empower, and inspire their people. They regularly contribute to Business Journals in 43 cities nationwide and contribute articles and interviews to INC, CEO Forum, Forbes, and other major business publications. I cherish the opportunity to share with Get Up Nation Michael and Bonnie’s insight and perspective on the role of resilience in entrepreneurial success. Michael and Bonnie, welcome to the show!
