Innovating and growing a legacy company that has often played inside the conventions of an industry, is different from the proverbial outside disruptor crashing the party. John Toler, who worked his way up to CEO of Evergreen Enterprises, shares his thoughts on innovating inside the model. 5:39 – on personal growth “I'm part of development group YPO… they're a good sounding board… I've done a lot of continuing education, a lot of reading… those outside reference points… what others are doing… inside or outside our space are very insightful.” 8:14 thru 10:47 – Key drivers of Evergreen's growth story, from a couple of amazing immigrants sewing product in Virginia… to a multi-national corporation.” 11:26 thru 16:50 – why sharing data and collaborating with customers and competitors helps both the sharing company and the receiving industry. 16:50 thru 20:33 – Fairedotcom, how and why John shared his experience with this disruptor with GHTA (trade association) members and the industry, as other industry players felt they couldn't address the elephant in the room, the disruptor. 20:34 thru 26:59 – on innovation – what it is, how to make it happen, what it takes to bring people along, to innovate inside the model. 29:20 – “… consumption of home furnishings is about 20% ecommerce now…(projected) to go to about 40% by 2025… how do we participate and adapt the model?” You can learn about GHTA at www.giftandhome.org, and you can connect with John Toler on LinkedIn.

The living world moves in pulses, defined equally by motion and pause. As waterpeople, we know this. Daize & Aamion Goodwin are a couple of exceptional surfers who have taken to applying the philosophy of the pause to daily life as a family.Daize is a two time world longboard champion and Aamion made a successful career as a multi-faceted waterman renowned for his casual approach to Pipeline and other waves of consequence. Now in their 17th year of marriage, with three wildlings, Daize and Aamion have become known for their freerange approach to parenting while maintaining surfing lives of their own. In 2016, they delivered the film Given into the world, named after their first born, -- a documentary that follows their family from their island home of Kauai through 15 countries in the quest for surf and to fulfill a calling handed down through generations.Theirs is a surfing love story, defined by the crests and troughs many know well: finding work/life balance, learning how to communicate, adapting to the seasons of parenting, falling in and out of love. "That's what marriage is," Daize says. As perpetual students of surfing, life and love, The Goodwins talk us through a little of what they've learned along the way. ...Listen with Lauren L.

Most people believe the American economy is being rigged by and for bankers, CEOs, and other superrich elites, because… well, because it is! With their hired armies of lawmakers, lobbyists, lawyers, and the like, they fix the economic rules so even-more of society's money and power flows uphill to them. Take corporate CEOs. While 2020 was somewhere between a downer and devastating for most people, the CEO class made out like bandits, with each of the three top paid corporate honchos pocketing as much as a billion dollars in personal pay! Are they geniuses, or what? What. All three of their corporations ended 2020 with big financial losses and declining value. So how can such mediocrity produce such lavish rewards? Simple – rig the pay machine. Today's corporate system of setting compensation for top executives is a flimflam disguised as a model of management rectitude. On its face, it sounds good – “Pay for performance,” it's called, meaning the CEO does well if the company does well. But who defines “doing well?” The scam at most major corporations is that the standard of corporate performance that the chief must meet to quality for a huge payday is set by each corporation's board of directors. Guess who they are? Commonly, board members are the CEO's handpicked brothers-in-law, golfing buddies, and corporate cronies. So, they set the bar for winning multimillion-dollar executive paychecks so low that a sack of concrete could jump over it. Well, insist these flimflammers, corporate shareholders are the ultimate stopgap against CEO greed. These “owners” can just vote “no” on any executive pay they consider excessive. However, even “shareholder democracy” is rigged – corporate rules decree that votes by shareholders are merely “advisory,” meaning top executives can simply ignore them, grab the money, and run. This system is fixed... and we need to break it!

Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein are evolutionary biologists. They both earned PhDs in Biology from the University of Michigan, where their research on evolution and adaptation earned awards. They've been visiting fellows at Princeton University, before that were professors at the Evergreen State College for fifteen years. Heather researched the evolution of social systems across a range of organisms, including humans, and my 2002 book, Antipode, is based on experiences in Madagascar studying the sex lives of poison frogs. In 2002, Bret published The Reserve-Capacity Hypothesis, which proposed that the telomeric differences between humans and laboratory mice have led scientists to underestimate the risks new drugs pose to humans in the form of heart disease, liver dysfunction, & related organ failure. They resigned from Evergreen in the wake of 2017 campus riots that focused in part on their opposition to a day of racial segregation and other college "equity" proposals. They cohost weekly livestreams of the DarkHorse podcast. Their new book, A Hunter-Gatherer's Guide to the 21st Century outlines a science-based worldview that will empower you to live a better, wiser life. It is a provocative exploration of the tension between our evolutionary history and our modern woes--and what we can do about it. For evolutionary biologists Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein, the cause of our troubles is clear: the accelerating rate of change in the modern world has outstripped the capacity of our brains and bodies to adapt. In this book, Heying & Weinstein draw on decades of their work teaching in college classrooms & exploring Earth's most biodiverse ecosystems to confront today's pressing social ills. https://bretweinstein.net/ https://heatherheying.com/ LinkedIn Jobs is the best platform for finding the right candidate to join your business this fall.

Exciting news from Wall Street: Our wealth markets are booming! Everything from the Dow Jones Average to gold prices are rocketing to new records, showering us with wealth from above. Oh… wait. Maybe you're one of the big majority of workaday Americans who don't own stocks or gold, so maybe you're not celebrating Wall Street's big boom. But just chill, because conventional corporate wisdom assures us that the wealthy will invest their good fortunes in enterprises that eventually will produce trickle-down gains for everyone. Excuse my rudeness, but let's take a peek at how those who're reaping today's big-buck bonanza are actually investing that wealth. Look at Wall Streeters themselves. The big banks have been making money like… well, like bankers, with their stock prices zooming up by 28 percent just since January. So, how are these moneyed elites spending this windfall? Not by making job-creating investments, but by simply giving the money to their big shareholders, including their own top executives – nearly all of whom are already among the richest people on Earth. The main way they do this is through a slight-of-hand called a “stock buyback.” The honchos simply cash out the bulk of that 28 percent increase in the value of the banks' stock price, using that money to repurchase more of their banks' own stock from lesser shareholders. Hocus-pocus, this manipulation artificially pumps-up the value of the stock these insider shareholders already own – making each of them even richer than rich, although they've done absolutely nothing to earn this increased wealth. It's not a small scam. JPMorgan Chase is now sinking $30 billion into buying its own stock. Wells Fargo is shifting $18 billion into the scheme, and Bank of America is throwing $25 billion into its buyback. Hello – Wall Street bankers are the biggest robbers in America.

Did you know that the online course market has been exploding over the last few years? More people than ever are open and eager to invest in learning from the comfort of their own couch — and smart business owners are learning how to create offers that can't be ignored. My guest for this episode is the incredible Gemma Bonham-Carter, who helps her clients simplify the heck out of growing an online course business and create email and funnel strategies for daaaaays! Gemma has a ton of experience in creating digital programs, both live launches and evergreen offers — and she's not shy about sharing what works… and what doesn't. Here's the skinny: You do NOT need to have your course created to start selling it. You do NOT need to have mastered the ins and outs of a fancy teaching platform to run your first course. Your LIVE launches will always have a greater conversion rate than your evergreen offers. “There's a lot of noise in the online space… you need to craft offers that are truly irresistible and really highly sellable,” Gemma says. “There's some things that people need to be doing to make sure that theirs stand out in the marketplace.” If you've been thinking about creating an online course, you will definitely want to hear Gemma share the lessons she's learned (and taught her own clients!) and find out your best next steps! (Bonus: Gemma shares some mind-blowing examples of ways to make your offer completely irresistible!!) In my latest podcast episode, you'll discover: The first steps that you should take when you're thinking about creating an online course How to work up to charging high-ticket prices for your offers (get that money!!)

When Donald Trump declared he would fix the US Postal Service, he was using the word “fix” the same way veterinarians do when you bring in your dog. Trump wasted an inordinate amount of his presidential power and prestige in a failed attempt to neuter an agency that literally delivers for the people. Extraordinary postal workers move our letters and packages by truck, car, airplane, boat, motorbike, mule – and, of course, by foot – to any address across town or across the country. Both essential and effective, it's the most popular federal agency, with 91 percent of the public approving its work. Thus, an uproar of protests killed Trump's attempt to gut it. When it comes to bad public policy, however, failure is just a way of saying, Let's try the back door. Trump was defeated, but he left behind an undistinguished Postmaster General named Louis DeJoy, who had only two qualifications for the job: He was a Trump mega-donor, and he was a peer of corporate powers that've long wanted to privatize the Postal Service. In March, before the new Biden presidency had taken charge of the postal system, DeJoy popped through the back door with his own “10-year-plan” to fix the agency. Rhetorically, his plan promised to “achieve service excellence” by making mail delivery more “consistent” and “reliable.” How? By consistently cutting service and reliably gouging customers. Specifically, DeJoy proposed to close numerous mail processing facilities, eliminate jobs, reduce Post Office hours of service, and cut the standard of delivering our first-class mail from three days to five. Oh, also: Raise stamp prices. Delivering lousy service at higher prices is intended to destroy public support for the agency, opening up the mail service to takeover by private profiteers. That's the real DeJoy plan. And who gets joy from that?

Is “corporate ethics” an oxymoron? Do you have to be a jerk to be a successful CEO? Is exploitation the only path to profit? The good news is that many companies, big and small, in the food economy are blazing a different path through Wall Street's jungle of greed, demonstrating that money and morality can be compatible. Texas supermarket chain HEB, for example, has drawn an intensely loyal customer base by (1) investing in good wages and benefits for employees, (2) showing up in such emergencies as pandemics, hurricanes, freezes, etc. to give essential supplies and hands-on help, and (3) being an involved and supportive neighbor to the hundreds of unique communities it serves. Also, Maine Grains is “relocalizing” the business of milling grain by working with local farmers who'd been abandoned by global grain marketers like Ardent and Gold Medal. They're producing nutrient-rich flours from heritage grains, boosting the local economy in the process. Then there's Bob's Red Mill, which also artfully mills its products from diverse, natural grains–and it's 100% employee-owned. These are part of a rising business alternative to the selfish, profiteering ethic of Fortune 500 titans. Called certified B Corporations, they definitely exist to make a profit, but they are equally focused on having a positive social impact, prioritizing fair wages, environmental protections, and healthy communities as core elements of their missions, even making those goals legal requirements of their corporate charter. Ben & Jerry's, Amy's Kitchen, King Arthur Baking, and New Belgium Brewery are just a few more of some 3,800 other businesses now organized as B Corps. Though not pretending to be perfect, they're at least striving to be more than money grubbers, instead trying to contribute to the Common Good. For more information on the products and practices of B Corps, go to BCorporation.net.

We've got the Academy Awards, the Emmy's, and GRAMMYs… but what should we call the award for the most extraordinary performance by a corporate profiteer? How about the “Sleazy,” with winners getting a solid gold sculpture of a middle finger? There were so many worthy contenders, but one corporation exhibited uncommon callousness, so the 2021 Sleazy goes to … Tyson Foods! The meatpacking giant has regularly run roughshod over workers, farmers, communities, and the environment – not to mention the millions of animals it fattens and slaughters. But the coronavirus pulled out the worst in Tyson's corporate ethic. Last April, its billionaire chair, John Tyson, ranted that health officials who were closing-down several of his slaughterhouses that had become hotbeds of contagion were creating another crisis: A national meat shortage! Responding instantly, our corporate-compassionate, burger-gobbling president decreed that meatpacking plants were crucial to America's national security and must be kept open at all cost. Trump's edict required workers to return to their jobs or be fired. Only there was no meat shortage. Not only did Americans have an excess of cheeseburgers, pork chops, and chicken nuggets, but Tyson and other giants actually increased their meat exports to China last year. Meanwhile, Covid rampaged through Tyson's factories. In its Waterloo, Iowa facility alone, a third of the processing workers – low wage, mostly people of color – were infected. At least six died. Which brings us to the corporate play that cinched this year's Sleazy for Tyson. Waterloo slaughterhouse supervisors actually knew that the back-to-work order would sicken hundreds, but not exactly how many. So, managers organized a winner-take-all betting pool on the percent of employees who would test positive. “It was simply something fun,” said one – “kind of a morale boost.” The virus infected more than a third of 2,800 workers in the plant. Some fun huh?

Kristian was originally a swimmer, but also excelled on his feet by competing at the 2011 European Cross-Country Championships as a junior and showcasing the necessary tools to excel in the sport of triathlon. Blummenfelt prospered as a junior, winning numerous events. Victories at ITU Junior European Cup events in Brno, Tabor and Antalya were followed by a Senior ITU victory at Tartu. His first major success came at the 2015 European Championship where he picked up a bronze medal. Kristian's Norwegian National titles came in 2015, 2016 and 2018, and now he was also showing off his talents on the IRONMAN 70.3 circuit. He notched three consecutive victories in Bahrain between 2017 and 2019, and in both the 2018 and 2019 renewals set new world records for the half-IRONMAN. 2019 was a highly successful campaign for the Norwegian as he was also crowned winner of the ITU World Triathlon Series Grand Final. He finished a highly creditable fourth meanwhile at the 70.3 World Championship in Nice, a race won by one of his training partners Gustav Iden. Kristian is also an Olympian, having competed at the 2016 Rio Games where he finished in 13th place. He won gold at the Tokyo 2021, won again in Edmonton and World Championship double August 21st. Blummenfelt's sporting hero growing up was Alexander Dale Oen, a swimmer from his native Norway and a European champion in 2008. Unsurprisingly for someone who has set those world records, Kristian's motto is “go big or go home”. Kristian Blummenfelt (protriathletes.org) Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Endurance News: Kristian Blummenfelt sprints to Edmonton win and World Championship double Win or lose (and this year it has mostly been the former for the Norwegian), Kristian Blummenfelt impacts more races than anyone else. So powerful is his cycling ability and mentality, you feel as though he is on a mission to challenge anyone who thinks they can breakaway on the bike (from him) and win. The result of that – for me at least, and it has been the case for some time now – is that the first major measure I look at during a race is not who is leading the swim, who is in the lead pack, is there a break etc. It's, “did you exit the swim ahead, or behind Kristian Blummenfelt?” Ahead, and – if you have the legs to follow him – you gain access to the world's greatest domestique (!) to help overcome any swim deficit. If you are behind and you miss the Blu Train… expect a very difficult next 90 minutes. And that, perhaps, is the primary reason why Great Britain's Alex Yee wasn't able to challenge for world championship gold on Saturday in Edmonton, despite producing the fastest run by a long way. Blummenfelt swam 18:36, Alex 18:53. Those 17 seconds would prove impossible to recover from. Preview of the Showdown in St. George at IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships 303 is heading to St. George to bring you in-person coverage of the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships. With no Kona this year, all eyes are on the desert of southwest Utah. With a hilly run course, fast bike and a predicted temperature near 100 degrees, the real sizzle isn't the rubber meeting the road, it's the clash of top triathletes on heels of the Collins Cup that has no doubt sparked some rivalries. In the women's field in particular, the match up of Daniela Ryf and Taylor Knibb seems most intriguing. At the Collins Cup they went head to head and Knibb had the biggest victory of the day of all athletes crushing Daniela by double digit minutes. But Daniela reportedly wasn't feeling her best and we all know of the four time IRONMAN World Champion capabilities. No doubt she is looking for some revenge. Obviously as the championship, the field is stacked. Maybe there is a chink in Ryf's armor? Maybe not, but Lucy Charles, Ellie Salthouse, Sky Moench, Paula Findlay and Jeanni Metzler, all with great races in Slovakia could be in the mix at the end. No doubt there are others like Holly Lawrence who crashed in the Collins Cup could fight for the podium. The mens field offers similar drama with Sam Long, the top ranked American and one of the favorites will have stiff competition from Lionel Sanders, Gustav Iden and fellow Norwegian and Olympic Gold Medalist Kristian Blummenfelt. Last May, Long and Sanders battled shoulder to shoulder in St. George and the two have had some fun social media banter in the last 12 months. After the race in May, Long said he knew he could take advantage of the downhill with his long stride and he did so almost winning so it will be interesting to see what happens. The Norwegians are going to be tough to beat. Both Iden and Blummenfelt have had fantastic seasons. Iden handedly won his race in Slovakia and Blummenfelt has focused on training for St. George since winning Olympic gold. With no Jan Frodeno, putting odds on this race is challenging. There are many podium worthy contenders like Chris Leiferman, Rudy Von Berg, Alistair Brownlee, Ben Kanute, Javier Gomez, Sam Appleton and maybe a dark horse to watch is Collin Chartier from Louisville, Colorado. What's New in the 303: Pro Race Insights from Jocelyn McCauley https://303cycling.com/cyclists-4-community-raffling-off-new-cervelo-to-raise-money/ 8 of Colorado's crazy tests on foot and bike: Jagged alpine to rowdy singletrack at night Here's a nod to some of the state's most infamous challenges spanning 100-plus miles: Hardrock 100 Clearly, lockdowns of last year fueled ambitions. Example: François D'haene's record dash over the San Juan Mountains this summer. The French man became the first in the fearsome race's 28-year history to clock a time under 22 hours — stunning, considering the 100 miles and 33,000 feet of climbing in the jagged alpine around Silverton, Telluride and Ouray. Lottery-based entry, race is usually mid-July. LEADVILLE 100 RACE Andy Fox of Evergreen, Colo. rides his bike near Twin Lakes during the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race Saturday, August 14, 2010 in Leadville, Colo. Gazette file Leadville Trail 100 This is a classic in the ultra world. Where miners once flocked for gold, now runners and mountain bikers race to finish within demanding cutoffs (30 hours for runners, 12 for cyclists). It's a test of lung power, starting from North America's highest incorporated town near 10,200 feet and rising to Hope Pass above 12,600 feet. It's better known as Hopeless Pass. Lottery-based, races in late August. Run Rabbit Run Are you a tortoise or a hare? That is the first question to ask when approaching this 100-mile sufferfest from Steamboat Springs. While gaining 20,000 feet of elevation, you'll be covering parts of the Continental Divide and the town's recognizable summits: Mount Werner and Emerald and Rabbit Ears mountains. Hares finish under 36 hours, tortoises under 30. Usually mid-September. Flaming Foliage Relay This 165-mile overnighter showcases autumn's aspen glow where it is famously glorious, along Guanella, Georgia and Fremont passes. Running teams might struggle to admire the beauty. Their heads are down on the course between Idaho Springs and Buena Vista, crossing roads and trails amounting to about 17,000 vertical feet. Usually mid-September. Triple Bypass In 1988, a group of cycling buddies thought it would be fun to ride from Evergreen to Vail. Ever since, that's been the idea of fun for riders traversing a trio of heart-pounding passes over 100-plus miles and 10,000-plus feet. An exclusive bunch has made it a “double triple” in recent years, pedaling back the way they came. Slated for late July/early August 2022. Breck 100 Mountain bikers have come to know this, not the Leadville 100, as Colorado's ultimate endeavor on a saddle — a tantalizing route shaped like a clover leaf, crossing the Continental Divide three times. But the race has been on hold for two years; the pandemic again caused a cancellation this summer. And the past two plans were a condensed course, closer to 70 miles. Will the real Breck 100 return? “That's the million-dollar question,” says organizer Thane Wright. Previously mid to late July. SBT GRVL Colorado's gravel revolution begins in Steamboat Springs, a cycling town proud of its crunchy backroads. This race has risen to prominence with a variety of endurance courses amid classic scenery. They have recently ranged from nearly 40 miles to more than 140 miles, with climbing between 2,000 and 9,400 feet. Slated for Aug. 22, 2022. Vapor Trail 125 Any ultra competitor knows about “sleep demons,” those hallucinations that manifest at night. That's when this whacky mountain bike foray begins, in the darkness of 10 p.m. It begins in Salida, where some of the whackiest riders reside, molded by the vaunted Monarch Crest. Vapor is reserved for the most skilled and wilderness prepared. One must negotiate technical singletrack by headlamp and sustain long climbs over 125 miles. Slated for Aug. 26, 2022.

Important Events September 17, 1702 Death of Olaus Rudbeck, Swedish botanist. Four months before he died, a fire destroyed much of Upsala. At 72, he helped lead the effort to save the building where he taught even after learning that the fire had destroyed his home along with his personal collections and writings. Thanks to Olaus, the university library was saved. After the fire, he drew up plans to rebuild the city. (The plans were carried out without him.) Twenty-nine years after his death, Carl Linnaeus named the Rudbeckia, or Black-Eyed Susan, after him. Linnaeus wrote, So long as the earth shall survive and as each spring shall see it covered with flowers, the Rudbeckia will preserve your glorious name. September 17, 1833 Birth of Hugh Macmillan, Scottish minister, and naturalist. In The Ministry of Nature, (1871), he wrote, Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart. She withers the plant down to the root [so] that she may grow it up again, fairer and stronger. She calls her family together within her inmost home to prepare them for being scattered abroad upon the face of the earth. September 17, 1910 Birth of Patrick Millington Synge, British botanist, writer, and plant hunter. He served as chief editor for the Royal Horticultural Society. In 1934, he joined the British Museums expedition to the Ruwenzori range in Kenya and Uganda, which inspired his book The Mountains of the Moon - a nod to Herodotus's name for the area. The equatorial mountain lakes were home to six-foot-tall impatiens, 30-foot-tall lobelia, and thick, tree-like heather. The experience was otherworldly and his writing is romantic and lyrical. He wrote, Slowly we glide out through a long lane of water cut through the papyrus thicket into Lake Kyoga, where blue water lilies cover the surface with a far-stretching shimmer of blue and green... Vita Sackville-West loved his book, writing, Readers of Mr. Patrick Synge's enthralling book... will remember his photographs of this alarming plant (groundsel). Patrick is remembered in the daffodil Narcissus hispanicus ex 'Patrick Synge' and in the exotic-flowering favorite Abutilon 'Patrick Synge'. Unearthed Words And finally, it seemed autumn had realized it was September. The last lingering days of summer had been pushed off stage and in the hidden garden long shadows stretched towards winter. The ground was littered with spent leaves, orange, and pale green, and chestnuts on spiky coats sat proudly on the fingertips of cold branches.” ― Kate Morton, The Forgotten Garden Grow That Garden Library Thus Spoke the Plant by Monica Gagliano This book came out in 2018, and the subtitle is A Remarkable Journey of Groundbreaking Scientific Discoveries and Personal Encounters with Plants. In this book, research scientist Monica Gagliano explores plant communication - a subject that influenced her research and ultimately changed her life. Monica has studied plant communication and cognition for a good amount of her academic career. She shares firsthand accounts from people all over the world and then shares the scientific revelations. This book is 176 pages of plant stories - strange, beautiful, and unforgettable. You can get a copy of Thus Spoke the Plant by Monica Gagliano and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $20 Today's Botanic Spark Reviving the little botanic spark in your heart September 17, 1907 Birth of Elizabeth Enright, American writer, illustrator, and creative writing teacher. She won the Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer (1938). In book three of her popular Melendy family series called Then There Were Five (1944), she wrote, The mullein had finished blooming and stood up out of the pastures like dusty candelabra. The flowers of Queen Anne's lace had curled up into birds' nests, and the bee balm was covered with little crown-shaped pods. In another month -- no, two, maybe -- would come the season of the skeletons, when all that was left of the weeds was their brittle architecture. But the time was not yet. The air was warm and bright, the grass was green, and the leaves and the lazy monarch butterflies were everywhere. Thanks for listening to The Daily Gardener.

In today's episode, I'm sitting down with my coach, Business Strategist and Evergreen Queen, Rose Radford! After leaving her Strategy Consultant role at McKinsey & Co. aged 25 with no plan, Rose has created a multi-6 figure online business helping women unlock their income potential online. Rose has made it her life's mission to financially empower women through entrepreneurship and is committed to helping 100,000 women unlock their income potential through online entrepreneurship by the year 2025.Since building a multi-6-figure business herself, Rose discovered only 12% of female-led businesses ever reach this level of financial success.

There's a shift happening in the online space. And I love it. People are fed up with the overly pushy, false promises, hype-y sales tactics that have (unfortunately) become the norm over the past several years in the online space. And now people are showing how over it they are by choosing to invest in course creators and mentors who, in addition to being an expert, are real and authentic. Experts who aren't going to get all “used car sales-y” (nothing against used car sales people) when they are selling their programs. Nobody likes being sold to, right? And that's especially true if you have a course or coaching program that's a bigger investment, say, $2K or more. People are often going to need a bit more information and to learn more before making a purchase decision. If you're selling a “high ticket” program, I definitely recommend getting on a call with people to discuss whether they're a right fit for your program and vice-versa. For example, in order to even be considered for my Accelerator coaching program, you need to apply and then jump on Zoom with either my team or me. If you're not getting on calls with people, by the way, it's a great way to make it easier to welcome more people into your program. It's such a simple thing to do, get on Zoom with someone, yet so few people do it. Calls are so effective for a couple reasons: You get to determine whether the person who is interested in your course or program is a right fit And they get to determine whether you are right for them, to help them make a decision one way or the other. Whether you are already doing “sales calls” for your higher investment offer or are now considering starting to do them… Here are a couple things to do to help you be more successful in your calls: Listen more than you talk. We all love to hear ourselves talk, but this isn't about you it's about the person considering your program. When you take more time to listen to their challenges and struggles and what they're wanting to accomplish, you can (gasp) tailor the call to their specific concerns and how you can uniquely help them. Make your offer with confidence. If you're not confident in your own program or deliver the offer to join your program with confidence, people are going to see right through it and they're aren't going to invest in what you have. If you get results for people, own the fact that you're the s*%t (because you are) and deliver your call with confidence. Selling your higher investment course or program doesn't have to be so scary or hard. It's a skill that's learned, and can be learned quickly. And it can be one of the most important skills you have as a business owner. That's why on today's episode of The Art of Online Business podcast, I'm interviewing expert sales coach Leah Neaderthal… ... where we're talking all about How to Make High Tickets Sales Without Feeling Pushy Among other topics, you'll learn things like: How to shorten the sales process How to avoid the mistake most people make when they get on a call with a prospective student Ways that we unknowingly prevent clients from saying “yes” And more… If you're selling any kind of offer that's north of $2K, this episode is a must listen.

The past year proves that a lot of conventional economic wisdom is neither true nor wise. For example: “We don't have the money.” The power elites tell us it would be nice to do the big-ticket reforms America needs, but the money just isn't there. Then a pandemic slammed into America, and suddenly trillions of dollars gushed out of Washington for everything from subsidizing meatpackers to developing vaccines, revealing that the money is there. “We can't increase the federal debt!” Yet, Trump and the Republican Congress didn't hesitate to shove the national debt through the roof in 2017 to let a few corporations and billionaires pocket a trillion-dollar tax giveaway. So, if those drunken spenders can use federal borrowing to make the likes of Amazon and Zuckerberg richer, we can borrow funds for such productive national needs as infrastructure investment and quality education for all. “The rich are the ‘makers' who contribute the most to society.” This silly myth quickly melted right in front of us as soon as Señor Coronavirus arrived, making plain that the most valuable people are nurses, grocery clerks, teachers, postal employees, and millions of other mostly-low-wage people. So, let's capitalize on the moment to demand policies that reward these grassroots makers instead of Wall Street's billionaire takers. “Tax cuts drive economic growth for all.” They always claim that freeing corporations from the “burden” of taxes will encourage CEOs to invest in worker productivity and – voila – wages will miraculously rise. This scam has never worked for anyone but the scammers, and it's now obvious to the great majority of workers that the way to increase wages – Hello – is to increase wages! Enact a $15 minimum wage, restore collective bargaining, etc. and workers will pocket more, spend more, and the economy will rise. Percolate-up economics works – trickle-down does not.
