Nick Gray is an entrepreneur and author living in Austin, Texas. He started and sold two successful companies: Flight Display Systems and Museum Hack. Nick is the author of The 2-Hour Cocktail Party, a step-by-step handbook that teaches you how to build significant relationships by hosting small gatherings. He is featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and New York Magazine, which called him a host of "culturally significant parties." After finishing college, Nick was working and living with his parents and realized he didn't have much social life and wanted to turn things around. He moved to New York, where he started working on the idea of creating events everyone would want to attend and how to become that magical person who hosts incredible parties and connects fantastic people. That's how The 2-Hour Cocktail Party was born. Find out more about the 2-hour cocktail party and why you need to be a host of unforgettable events. For people that do solar, for all that stuff that sells those things. You can do it all for under $100. It would be best if you hosted a party for your potential and past customers.
Good relationships and connections are keys to building a successful business. Every small business owner must look for ways to reach and connect with people that can greatly impact their business operations through mutual interactions and sharing of innovative ideas. However, what troubles the minds of many business owners is how to develop a working business relationship with people they barely know, as it's always intimidating and terrifying to ask someone out for a coffee or a drink because of the fear of being rejected. In today's podcast, Nick Gray, a seasoned entrepreneur, and author, and Stephen Halasnik from Financing Solutions discuss how to build a great relationship with the 2- hour cocktail party.

Nick Gray is an interesting man. He built his first company, Museum Hack, by offering non-traditional tours of museums, starting with the MET, when he lived in NYC. By "nontraditional art tour" I mean showing the most expensive art piece, or the most controversial, or the least commercially successful artist. It was not about teaching Art History 101 but giving people a memorable experience in a great location. He's taken this expertise and applied it to networking. Best of all, he shares it all with me in this podcast episode on making new friends, aka networking now. By creating your own 2-hour event, a 2-hour cocktail party, even if you don't drink, you can meet interesting new people, have REAL conversations, make connections and help others to do the same. His book is called The 2-hour Cocktail Party: build big relationships with small gatherings. It's so introvert friendly! This is your opportunity to learn a fresh way to build relationships and as a result, build your career. In this high-energy conversation, take away prime assets like these: - Why you need this new way to network - What to do if your house is small or shabby and you don't know anybody - Get everyone out of the awkward zone and the best ice breakers - A step-by-step on creating social proof - Special touches that ensure your event's success - Nick offers to coach you for free!

Arthur Smith and the Atlanta Falcons look a lot different than they did last year. For Smith, that's intentional because he and Terry Fontenot want to get guys that fit their system. So, Mark Zinno gave his observations from day one of training camp. Also, Zinno talked about a quarterback competition that would be a good thing for Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder. Secondly, the Atlanta Braves have some players on the struggle bus right now. Charlie Morton and Ronald Acuña Jr. both are at the top of the list. And with the trade deadline looming, general manager Alex Anthopolous must prioritize what's important. Mark Zinno talked about the big decision that Anthopoulos has to make in order to improve his team down the stretch. Lastly, the Georgia Bulldogs gave Kirby Smart a contract extension because he was able to win a national championship for the city of Athens. Now, Smart has been very vocal about wanting the “Cocktail Party” moved out of Jacksonville and back to Athens and Gainesville. Mark Zinno talked about how he may not get what he wants just yet, but another national title may do the trick. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Let's talk about building your influence. And I don't mean growing your follower count on social networks. I mean really growing the number of people that you have some degree of influence over. Now, for some of you who want to build a following online or offline and have true influence. Perhaps you want to be content creator that does brand deals and gets paid to create on social media channels. Or maybe you have political aspirations. Or you just see the value in growing your audience or network that you have an impact upon. Others of you probably see the value in growing the influence your business has. Perhaps over prospective customers. But more specific to what we talk about on this show, maybe you want to grow your influence over the influencers in your space. When you remove the guardrails of influencer marketing and stop focusing solely on follower counts and social networks online, you start to see true influence. That is often built offline. Face-to-face. At events. Think of it networking, not social networking which now seems to imply online. When I happen to stumble upon a person, brand, case study or resource that can help me explain and emphasize the offline part of influence marketing, without the R, I latch on to it. And I recently found one such resource. Nick Gray is an entrepreneur that you could say was an original influencer. He started a website and company on the side in the mid-2000s called Museum Hack. He did what he calls “renegade tours” of the Met and similar museums in New York City. The content exploded and Museum Hack became a full-fledged business with 50 employees. He sold it in 2019. Nick's climb to the top of the entrepreneurial success ladder, however, sprouted from a socially awkward kid who moved to New York City in his early 20s. The way he networked and grew his influence inspired a now five-year-long project that resulted in a book. It's called The 2-Hour Cocktail Party: How to Build Big Relationships with Small Gatherings. Nick and I caught up recently to talk about his book, the idea of hosting cocktail parties to grow your local and community influence and how the ideas in the book can help content creators and brands alike become more influential. Not just leverage influence or influencers. Today's episode is presented by Tagger, the complete influencer marketing platform. Get a demo to see if Tagger is right for you at jason.online/tagger.

Nick Gray has scaled and sold mutliple businesses. He's the founder of Musem Hack, which started as a fun way to engage with art and artifacts and then grew much bigger than he ever imagined. He was also an important part of growing and selling a business his father started. Today he does a lot of things. He's always sharing his adventures and experiences online and in his newsletter, which I personally really enjoy reading and following. Most relevant to my life and our conversation, he's been developing a method for hosting parties that I've been using. And it's been a blast. We'll get into all of that in the interview, so I don't want to spoil it here. But what I do want to say is that I really like Nick. He's approachable and open. He has a comfortable and genuine air about him, that I really appreciate. He's the kind of person who makes you feel at ease. And I've really enjoyed getting to know him in this conversation and beyond. Show notes at: https://themeaningmovement.com/nick-gray

Label Bleu et Table Pounding Records ont le plaisir d'annoncer la sortie du premier album, depuis huit ans et sous son nom, du clarinettiste, compositeur et chef d'orchestre David Krakauer : Mazel Tov Cocktail Party Orchestra. Toujours en quête de nouvelles frontières esthétiques et de nouveaux sons, Krakauer s'est associé à la productrice Kathleen Tagg pour créer une expression cathartique de joie et d'affirmation. En réponse à la montée du sectarisme et de l'intolérance dans le monde, Krakauer et Tagg ont réuni une équipe d'artistes issus d'une grande variété de genres et de milieux culturels pour transmettre un contre-message de positivité qui célèbre notre humanité commune. L'album et le projet de tournée Mazel Tov Cocktail Party Orchestra ont été conçus et créés par Krakauer et la productrice Kathleen Tagg comme une "explosion de bonnes vibrations" en réponse au climat actuel d'incroyable polarisation et de négativité qui envahit notre quotidien. Aux côtés de Krakauer et Tagg, l'album présente une toute nouvelle formation composée d'un groupe de musiciens de renommée mondiale : le virtuose de la clarinette Krakauer s'impose en parrain des claviers et de la production excentrique de Tagg, du batteur iranien et multi-talent Martin Shamanpoor, de la basse virtuose du gourou du jazz Jerome Harris, de la voix et des mots de la chanteuse et rappeuse soul Sarah MK et des lignes du oudiste/guitariste Yoshie Fruchter. Ce groupe apporte son énorme diversité musicale et culturelle au projet, et collabore pour créer à la fois des œuvres originales et des réinventions uniques d'œuvres du monde entier. L'album reprend des formes de danses traditionnelles et anciennes et les refond complètement pour apporter un message manifeste de tolérance et d'inclusion. La polka, la danse carrée et la hora n'ont jamais sonné de cette façon auparavant, avec des rythmes électro, des tambours à main acoustiques du Moyen-Orient, des grooves profonds et des paroles qui appellent à l'espace pour tous. La clarinette hurlante de Krakauer nous enjoint à nous unir, à célébrer et à ressentir la puissance de notre vie. Une danse carrée ? La polka ? Hornpipe, Hora et Calypso ? Des rythmes urbains mêlés à des instruments acoustiques et à un rap qui donne à réfléchir ? Quelle est cette musique ? Au cours des mois qui nous ont fortement divisés en 2020, Krakauer et Tagg ont commencé à réfléchir profondément à ce que nous partageons tous en tant qu'êtres humains afin de contrer le barrage incessant d'histoires relatives à nos différences. Ils ont été profondément troublés par le fait que la conversation est si divisée, que le fanatisme aveugle est endémique et que les tensions entre différents groupes de personnes n'ont jamais été aussi fortes : urbains contre ruraux. Rouge contre bleu. Conservateurs contre libéraux, etc. Quel est le lieu commun où nous avons le potentiel de nous rassembler en tant qu'êtres humains, sans avoir besoin de connaître les croyances de la personne à côté de nous, pour passer un bon moment ? C'est la musique et la danse. Krakauer et Tagg se sont donc tournés vers les anciennes formes de danse. Celles qui sont conçues pour que les communautés se rassemblent et bougent. Des danses qui sont immédiatement reconnaissables. Et à partir de là, ils ont plongé dans les réalités de leur Amérique, avec toute son étonnante diversité, et ont ajouté ces sons : par exemple, une danse carrée avec des mots en partie en français québécois, des tambours sur un daf iranien et un rythme de beat maker né au Maroc et basé à New York. Une musique avec la forme et la pulsation d'une danse carrée traditionnelle mais le rythme d'une boîte de nuit de Brooklyn. Un lieu de rencontre musicale où chaque membre s'est présenté tel qu'il était, avec toute son histoire et ses compétences, pour créer un nouveau son où des petits bouts d'individus créent le tout. C'est une soirée cocktail Mazel Tov et tout le monde est invité ! En ces temps incertains, c'est l'occasion pour les artistes et le public de se réunir, de célébrer tout ce que nous avons en commun et de lancer en l'air un "cocktail Mazel Tov" métaphorique pour illuminer le monde ! Depuis 25 ans, David Krakauer est le fer de lance de projets qui rassemblent des éléments multiculturels de manière inattendue. Il est considéré comme l'une des principales forces qui redéfinissent et ré imaginent la musique de son héritage culturel juif d'Europe de l'Est. En 2008, il a fondé Table Pounding Records telle une plaque tournante pour des projets qui croisent les genres. Puis en 2015, Kathleen Tagg a rejoint Krakauer à la production et création de Table Pounding Records : Table Pounding Music. Déclaration de l'artiste et contexte historique de David Krakauer et de la productrice Kathleen Tagg : face à l'écrasante négativité et à la montée alarmante de la haine et de l'intolérance dans le monde d'aujourd'hui, nous nous sommes sentis obligés de proposer une célébration musicale de notre humanité partagée comme contre-pouvoir à toute cette folie. Ce projet s'inspire d'un lapsus d'un expert conservateur qui a appelé les cocktails Molotov des cocktails "Mazel Tov". L'image d'un cocktail "Mazel Tov" illuminant le monde d'espoir et de joie - au lieu d'être une arme de destruction - nous a interpellés. Cette idée est résumée par les paroles de la chanson éponyme de l'album : "Débranchez-vous, arrêtez d'avoir peur. Regardez votre voisin dans les yeux, et souhaitez-lui bonne chance. Et levez votre verre d'un breuvage crépitant. Pour éclairer le monde et le renouveler." Nous avons imaginé qu'un projet musical pourrait être une fête amusante qui aurait le potentiel d'être utilisée comme un catalyseur pour encourager et soutenir les gens à faire des choses positives dans le monde. Nous voulions prendre des formes de danses traditionnelles et anciennes et les remanier complètement pour apporter un message explicite de tolérance et de célébration de notre humanité partagée. Et nous voulions créer de nouveaux airs qui fassent danser les gens. Ces deux années ont été très dures, et nous avons besoin de bouger ensemble. C'est une fête, et vous êtes tous invités !!! Nous soutenons sans équivoque le mouvement Black Lives Matter ainsi que tous les autres mouvements et organisations en faveur de la tolérance et du respect mutuel.

It may seem unthinkable now - people considered it unthinkable at the time - but for about 13 years in America, alcohol was constitutionally banned. The 18th Amendment made criminal the distillation, transportation and distribution of alcohol. It was never, however, illegal to drink it.Ah-ha. An American-sized loop-hole.Prohibition was a dark and exciting time - the birth of jazz clubs, speak-easies, and organized crime. A time none of us would return to, yet it remains in the top five party-themes of all time. Oh really? You don't have some photo-booth picture of you in pearls, holding a Tommy gun? Really?And speaking of pearls…My guest for this episode is Beau Hufford. He is at the helm of 3 different podcasts and so we begin our conversation talking a little “podcast shop” and playing with my sound effects. Welcome. Pull up a chair and pour yourself a cup of hooch as we begin the HILF of Prohibition.---EPISODE NOTES/LINKS---00:00:00 - Dawn and Beau discuss the podcasting sound board as well as Beau's other podcasting exploits:Campfire ShtshowMovie Cinema Film ClubThings You Can't Tell Your ParentsHe is also a visual artist who performs and travels around the world.00:08:57 - The subject at hand is, Prohibition. Beau explains that his fascination all began when he built a small Tiki Bar hidden in his apartment called “The Sneaky Crow”. Dawn presents her sources of research:‘Prohibition' - Documentary by Ken Burns on PBSLAST CALL: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition - By Daniel Okrent00:13:54 - Dawn explains that one of the lessons of Prohibition is this: For a bad idea to succeed, it needs a good intention and a committee of assholes. The good intention was to do something about the very real and very growing problem of alcoholism in America. Most families could trace some terrible situation to a man and a bottle. The assholes include some classic ones like the KKK, but also some more likeable-assholes like The Suffragettes. 00:24:30 - In December of 1917 congress passes Prohibition… They fucking pass it. Then, in January of 1919, it is ratified by 36 states and the one-year countdown begins to January 17th, 2020 when it's all illegal baby. Almost immediately the many loopholes were exploited. For example, beer and fermented cider you made at home was legal. But there were other figures - braver, wiser, more-desperate - who had no interest in squeezing through a loophole... and the are so fuckable. --- BREAK --- 00:32:36 - Another lesson from Prohibition: A bad idea can become a good situation for some people, but it's still a bad idea.Fortunes were made, adventures were had, and in the case of some places like The Bimini Islands (Bahamas) and St. Pierre (a French island off the coast of Canada) Prohibition was to thank for their entire existing infrastructure. There were also bootleggers like Bill McCoy (swoon) and NASCAR, and Cocktail Parties and Speak-Easies... But... There was also a lot of suffering, the poor and unprotected were the disproportionate victims. It couldn't last. 00:57:00 - It's all hitting the fan in 1928. In the presidential election is Al Smith [of New York who had essentially repealed Prohibition in the state of New York] and Herbert Hoover who isn't terribly vocal about it but seems to be comparatively 'wet'. He wins.The Prohibition advocates double-down on enforcing drinking laws, misreading the election results as a mandate to get tougher. It backfires just as the stock market crashes in 1929 and whatever meager funds we had to unsuccessfully fight the laws before, also evaporated. 01:04:50 - One of the greatest exports of the time was an American deviant youth culture. Kids fucking around. Don't forget that The Great Gadsby was written during prohibition. It was a present-day inspiration... and it was sexy as fuck then as it is now.---THANK YOU - listener - for tuning in and reading this far. We appreciate you and thank you and can't wait to see you next time. When we do it will be for THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS with guest, Alex Malt.In the meantime...Please leave us a review!And follow us on Instagram!

He lived in St. Louis during the first eighteen years of his life and attended Harvard University. In 1910, he left the United States for the Sorbonne, having earned both undergraduate and masters degrees and having contributed several poems to the Harvard Advocate. After a year in Paris, he returned to Harvard to pursue a doctorate in philosophy, but returned to Europe and settled in England in 1914. The following year, he married Vivienne Haigh-Wood and began working in London, first as a teacher, and later for Lloyd's Bank.It was in London that Eliot came under the influence of his contemporary Ezra Pound, who recognized his poetic genius at once, and assisted in the publication of his work in a number of magazines, most notably "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" in Poetry in 1915. His first book of poems, Prufrock and Other Observations, was published in 1917, and immediately established him as a leading poet of the avant-garde. With the publication of The Waste Land in 1922, now considered by many to be the single most influential poetic work of the twentieth century, Eliot's reputation began to grow to nearly mythic proportions; by 1930, and for the next thirty years, he was the most dominant figure in poetry and literary criticism in the English-speaking world.As a poet, he transmuted his affinity for the English metaphysical poets of the seventeenth century (most notably John Donne) and the nineteenth century French symbolist poets (including Baudelaire and Laforgue) into radical innovations in poetic technique and subject matter. His poems in many respects articulated the disillusionment of a younger post–World War I generation with the values and conventions—both literary and social—of the Victorian era. As a critic also, he had an enormous impact on contemporary literary taste, propounding views that, after his conversion to orthodox Christianity in the late thirties, were increasingly based in social and religious conservatism. His major later poetry collections include Ash Wednesday (1930) and Four Quartets (1943); his books of literary and social criticism include The Sacred Wood (1920), The Use of Poetry and the Use of Criticism (1933), After Strange Gods (1934), and Notes Towards the Definition of Culture (1940). Eliot was also an important playwright, whose verse dramas include Murder in the Cathedral, The Family Reunion, and The Cocktail Party.He became a British citizen in 1927; long associated with the publishing house of Faber & Faber, he published many younger poets, and eventually became director of the firm. After a notoriously unhappy first marriage, Eliot separated from his first wife in 1933, and remarried Valerie Fletcher in 1956. T. S. Eliot received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1948. He died in London on January 4, 1965.From https://poets.org/poet/t-s-eliot. For more information about T. S.

"So, what kind of work do you do?" When you're in pediatric palliative care, what answer do you give? And how do you respond to the inevitable follow-ups?
