Episode #21 - Want To Know How To Stand Out As The "Go To" Sales Person?

Authoritti5.0Sep 01, 2019

Episode #39 - The Great Distraction

Episode #39 - The Great Distraction

The world is in a state of distraction. Adults are distracted socially and emotionally. Children are distracted by technology and yet I think we are missing the entire point of distraction and its true meaning.
We have become a society that can’t think for ourselves, ask pragmatic questions and watching Netflix and reality TV is somehow widely accepted as entertainment. To be honest, all of this is nothing but a distraction - if it consumes you.
For a vast majority, thinking has become “too hard” or “too time-consuming”. Stillness is uncomfortable and boredom creates distress and severe uneasiness.
Where are we heading? I am asking a serious question here.
In this issue of Authoritti5.0 there is only ONE person in the universe who could help me unpack my concern about the distracting economy and that is best-selling author
Nir Eyal, who wrote the book Indistractable.
Nir Eyal is in one word – OUTSTANDING.

He is pragmatic, grounded and brings an innerstanding of distraction by combining his academic and entrepreneurial expertise.

His wisdom is captivating and I encourage you to listen to the podcast interview because you will get a feel of his conviction and passion on this topic.

Mike Michalowicz understands business. Period. By his 35th birthday, he founded and sold two multimillion-dollar companies. He was confident that he had the formula for success. He became a small business angel investor and proceeded to lose his entire fortune. Then he started all over again, driven to find better ways to grow healthy, strong companies. 

Now he has devoted his life to the research and delivery of innovative, impactful entrepreneurial strategies to people like me and many other business owners out there.

He is the creator of Profit First, which is used by hundreds of thousands of companies across the globe to drive profit. He is also the creator of Clockwork, a powerful method to make any business run on automatic and his latest – arguably the most impactful discovery, is Fix This Next. In Fix This Next, Mike details the strategy businesses can use to determine what to do in what order to ensure healthy, fast, permanent growth and avoid debilitating distractions. 

Today, Mile leads two new multimillion-dollar ventures. He's a former small business columnist for The Wall Street Journal and business make-over specialist on MSNBC, he is a popular main stage keynote speaker on innovative entrepreneurial topics, and an accomplished author. 

This interview covers a lot of ground on the trials and tribulations a business faces in 2021. Mike shares pragmatic and implementable ideas and strategies.

Episode #28: Think Like a Thought Leader: How To Use Your Stories To Communicate and Connect Better

Amy Blaschka has made a career offering “stories as a service.” From her degree in film to her three decades spent branding products, places, and people, to founding her writing practice, Amy has always understood the power of weaving an engaging tale. She is a social media ghostwriter who helps leaders craft their stories to communicate and connect better. As a longtime leadership contributor for Forbes, Amy covers personal transformation and its impact on career growth. 

In this interview, we discuss 

Get clear on what you want.
Clarity is essential to creating a path to your goals.

Sell your destiny, not your history.
If something is no longer relevant, it’s muddying your message and will confuse—or lose—your intended audience. Instead, let clarity be your friend and be ruthless about paring down your profile to support what you want to do, not what you’ve done.

Identify your common thread.
Even if you’ve had seemingly unrelated jobs in vastly different industries, you can always find a common thread that weaves together your personal and professional experiences into a compelling narrative.

Serve, don’t sell.
Focus on providing value with your content rather than making a sales pitch.

Embrace consistency and discipline.
The savviest thought leaders stick to two fundamental branding concepts in telling their career stories: consistency and discipline.   Maintain your “voice,” look, and feel in all your communications and stick with those few areas where you have expertise.

She wrote a book about it called This Human and its well worth a read, especially if you work in the corporate landscape in a leadership role.

In this podcast, she takes us literally on a journey on the topic of humanisation, especially in leadership roles, how she brings human design into corporate infrastructures and her thinking behind her mission...which ultimately is to humanise the human.
