Warrior of Reciprocity

For a lot of entrepreneurs, our businesses are much more technologically driven, forcing us to spend more time sitting in front of a computer. The negative effects of sitting are serious, including restricted blood flow and pressure on the spine. As I’ve said many times, Warriors have to take care of themselves because, without us, it’s likely our businesses would not go on. That’s why I have this chat with fitness expert, Jeremy Abramson. To get you moving. To make sure you stay healthy. This guy is a beast. He’s the real deal. Be sure to check out his website and Instagram.

What if I said doing business in the selfie age is a good thing? Well, I think it is. But not in the way you might be thinking. Listen and learn how your customer’s “selfishness” is an opportunity for your business. How customers are empowered today like they never have been before. Why you want to understand this concept to build a business that speaks to your ideal customers, allows them to create the experiences they want, and to know what is most convenient for THEM.

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.
