Warrior of Reciprocity

In the worlds of personal development, motivation, and positive thinking, were are usually encouraged to move forward. While that is likely the goal, maybe we have to first get frustrated enough about what we want to move away from in order to fully commit to where we want to go. A compelling topic and I look forward to hearing your perspective!

Usually on Talking Stick, we talk about business quests. Our guest today, Devin Galaudet, shares the story of a very different quest. A personal quest that led him on a 10,000 mile journey with his dead father’s ashes. As you might imagine, there are plenty of life lessons to be learned here. All shared with a touch of humor. One highlight is our conversation about what keeps us on a quest when we really have no idea where we’re going or perhaps, even why we’re doing it.

I absolutely love this conversation with Anne Gordon! Anne is founder of WhaleWatchingPanama.com. After years of whale watching tours, interactions with dolphins and guiding her guests to interact with these magnificent creatures, she has compiled a wealth of wisdom from whales and dolphins that we can all learn from. Consider this- whales have been on earth for 30 million years! We humans are toddlers in comparison! This is a wonderful treat!

What really is self-love? Is it different than self-worth? I think many of us, myself included, think we don’t have an issue with self-love. Why then do we speak to ourselves, judging and criticizing ourselves, in ways that we would never speak to a friend? Joie Cheng shares her journey through suicidal thoughts to finding self-love. A journey she tells in her book, Naked Truth.

I could go all Matrix on you and put your brain in a knot. But the truth is, things are as you see them because of how you perceive them to be. Is it a good day or bad day? Depends how you see it. Was that a good thing that happened or a bad thing? Depends how you look at it. That’s what makes this a compelling conversation with Dr. Shawn Andrews, author of The Power of Perception. Or at least that’s how I see it.

If you’re in business and plan on being in business for the next several years or more, you better plan on understanding the often misunderstood millennials. They are a major buying force. From a marketing perspective, they are both predictable and unpredictable. To me, Shaun Gold embodies the millennial generation. A nightclub promoter, known as “the nightlife ninja”, he’s part partier and part intellect having written four books. Part carefree and part very intentional. This IS the millennial manifesto.

Story telling in business has become the “in” thing. It’s a great way to tell the story of your business and why you do what you do. But let’s flip this around. How about stories that create relevancy with your ideal customers? Told in the right way, stories can create a bond between you and your ideal customer. So it’s not about you or your business. It’s also not a story about them. It’s a story of shared values and life experiences to create relevancy and build relationship.

Many people have a hard time charging what they are worth. This is often because it’s easy to not see value in what comes easy to you. Your gift. Most people have no problem charging a lot for what’s hard or takes up a lot of time. It’s actually the other way around. What comes easy to you is likely what you should charge the most for. Mellissa Seaman will help you find your gift and work with your gift, not against it.

One of the things that holds many people back is a fear of becoming “that person.” As if getting recognition or having financial success is going to inherently change who you are. Sure, perhaps it does for some people. But if you are kind-hearted, person-driven in the first place, it’s unlikely success is going to change you into someone you’re not proud of. Often, quite the opposite. Financial success can free you to do your best work and give back. In today’s marketing world, recognition is also often necessary. Or, as I like to say, “recognition is a strategy, not a goal.”

Do you ever feel ignored if you are out to eat with someone and they keep checking their phone? Does it make you feel insecure? Well, you’re not alone. We all feel that way.

Today it seems like everyone pays attention to their device and not the world around them. It’s an addiction not many people are addressing, but lucky for you this can easily play in your favor as an entrepreneur.
