Known worldwide for his incredible feats upon the high wire and beyond, Nik is the holder of eleven Guinness World Records, among which are the highest four-level eight-person pyramid on the wire, the highest and longest bicycle ride on a wire, and hanging from a helicopter by his teeth. Nik’s career began at the age of two, as he learned to walk the wire while holding his mother’s hand, leading from there to record-breaking performances across the United States and around the world. In 2012, Nik fulfilled his lifelong dream to become the only person to walk directly over the precipice of Niagara Falls, which was broadcast live by ABC. In 2013, he became the first person to walk a wire across the Grand Canyon, an epic event aired live by the Discovery Channel in 178 countries, breaking network rating and social media records in the process. The next Discovery special took place in Chicago, where he walked blindfolded between two skyscrapers in November of 2014. In June of 2019, accompanied by his sister Lijana Wallenda, Nik took it to yet another level, becoming the first person to walk over New York City’s Times Square, an event that was carried live on ABC. Nik’s motto is “never give up”, and he carries this positive message with him in every walk with the purpose of “inspiring people around the world to follow their dreams.”  On this Episode: Nik gives a historical background to his family line and their life in acrobatic high wire acts.

    Evan Carmichael (https://www.evancarmichael.com/) is a media guru. He is the face of a YouTube channel that is watched by millions. He hosts a workshop in Toronto where he teaches 25-30 people in person how to create content. But how does he define himself? “Introvert.” Evan explained during my recent interview (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LNv4K9xd8M) with him in Toronto. “I’m an introvert. I don’t do networking super well. I do it through what I know. For example, Youtube. I’ve helped a lot of the big names in the thought leadership space with their channels. The what I know created the leverage to create the who I know.” “The what I know created the leverage to create the who I know.”He went on to offer several steps for introverts to network successfully. I’ve broken them down for this article. Evan Carmichael’s Networking Strategies for Introverts  #1. SPEAK AT EVENTS“I speak at events. So, I speak and then people come and talk to me after. I’m not going up to them.” #2. WEAR BRANDED GEAR“Whenever I’m at an event, I always wear my branded gear. So, if it’s an entrepreneur event or youth event, people will recognize it. I’ve got ‘Evan Carmichael – Believe’ on the back [of my sweatshirt (https://teespring.com/new-believe-hoodie)] and then the airplane. So it’s like, ‘I’ve seen that somewhere.’ And then people come up and they say, ‘Are you that guy?’ And that creates a conversation.” #3. WEAR AN ITEM THAT DRAWS ATTENTION“If I didn’t [have branded gear], then I would try to have something that would bring attention to myself. People always ask me about my shoes – these Japanese wrap shoes. So doing something so that people will come to me instead of me reaching out. So whether you like cowboy hats or some crazy jersey or chains or whatever, wear something that creates conversation to make it easy for people to find you. “…wear something that creates conversation to make it easy for people to find you.”#4. BE IN THE CENTER OF THE ROOM“I always go to the middle of the busiest room and I don’t talk to anybody. I pull up my phone and I start doing Instagram video DMs, and what it does is it creates energy. So instead of being at the back of the room on the phone or in my room, I go to the middle of the room and I’ll just start doing Instagram video DMs.” “instead of being at the back of the room on the phone or in my room, I go to the middle of the room “Now, I get a lot of people DM-ing me, but maybe you don’t have a lot of people following. Maybe you have fifty. Awesome. Make a video message for all of your fifty. Say, ‘Hey Jim, thank you so much for following me. I really appreciate it.’ It raises your energy, people see it. As soon as I’m done doing one of the messages, invariably somebody’s going to come up and talk to me afterwards. That gives permission to create the conversation.” Resources Mentioned: Visit Travis’ website at travischappell.com (https://create.acast.com/episodes/3b48e6da-a672-4e83-9897-ddefc4e88bc7/travischappell.com) Join the Build Your Network Facebook group travischappell.com/group (https://create.acast.com/episodes/3b48e6da-a672-4e83-9897-ddefc4e88bc7/travischappell.com/group)
