Cycling is a metaphor for succeeding in life

[embedyt][/embedyt] [audio mp3=""][/audio] Four cyclist went by me, all with different styles and purpose.  The 1st cyclist was smooth, the 2nd cyclist was out-of-shape, the 3rd cyclist was young, uninhibited, and storing, and the last cyclist was a grinder.  Chugging along through life, doing what she has to do to get the job done. Who are you of these 4 cyclist?  Or are you the surprise 5th person?!? Enjoy!    

How to create instant trust at business meetings, conferences and social events

While on a weekend basketball tournament in Gothenberg, Sweden, I found a beautiful church that got me thinking about how to build trust with people.  This past week, I had meetings with some very wealthy individuals who liked to show their wealth too much and I also had a presentation at a Marketing conference.  This contrast of different people with very different agendas got me thinking about how I successfully navigate all these events and keep on being invited back, week after week, month after month. In this podcast, I share my secrets of how I gain instant trust with business people at meetings, conferences, and social events.

Try something new and treat yourself to meeting new people on a new level.  You will learn that it costs very little and only has an upside.

Podcast: Why treating people, especially your customers, like family is mandatory to succeed

In one week, I had two customer service experiences that were polar opposites of one-another.  Truly, the secret sauce to succeeding in any job, with nay idea, with life itself is how we treat each other. In this podcast, I explain what great customer service is like and also what typical horrible customer service is like.  There is no need to future with Artificial intelligence possibly taking your job if you have forgotten how to be nice to someone.  It's that simple and that important.

Are you a Boss or are you a Leader

So many of us think we are great leaders.  We never think of ourselves anything less, interesting.  We detest the memories of people in the past who were our bosses who did, said, and made decisions for us that were against our beliefs and sometimes, ethics.

Find out how to bring out the great leader within you and not to perpetuate the boss of your past who made life a living hell for you and others around you.  Stop the cycle and be legendary as a great leader.
