Spend Your Energy Wildly is the topic for Part 6, the final episode in our six-part book series. Gladys' teaching is that living well is a matter of learning how to steer your energy toward life. I recap the previous five lessons and illustrate how to receive the lessons and love from each moment. I share client stories and moments from my own life tied to the choice of expanding your energy wildly vs. wisely. I end the episode with Gladys' six-part practice on how to embrace and appreciate the gift of life. Gladys shares the decision to stop fighting at school in order to make connections. She had to redirect the energy and unconscious patterns created in her family with intention and purpose. We all have sovereignty over our energy. I share a moment from my life when my husband and I were inspired by families in our church to adopt children of our own. I discovered the capacity of both my light and darkness while raising five children, but I had the agency to expand and move toward light energy. I also illustrate Gladys' practice on how to embrace life with a series of questions for inquiry so life can grow and expand with you. Can you feel life's boundless energy moving throughout your body? This message is a reminder to embrace the wildness of life around you. Listen in to learn Glady's teachings as a stepping stone on the journey to a life well-lived. Thank you for joining me for this six-part series. I am honored to be with you. Please reach out.

Before the advent of the iPhone, Logitech was a boring but successful company, making $2 billion per year. They made functional but ugly computer mice at affordable prices. But when the world moved from PC to mobile, its revenues tanked and its future looked bleak. The board knew they had to make a radical change, and hired Bracken Darrell as its CEO. Darrell changed the entire ethos of the company from an engineering led firm to a design led firm. Darrell was Logitech CEO for 10 years. Under his leadership, Logitech expanded into more than 20 new product categories, more than doubled revenue, and achieved a 10x increase in market capitalization.

I'm originally from Ohio, and lived there for 12 years. Grew up Catholic (I'm a recovering Catholic now) and played every sport known to man when I was a little kid. Became a Steelers fan back then. Steel Curtain and all that. Got in a lot of trouble in school too. (No surprise to those of you that know me). At 12, we moved to a little 'burb outside Philadelphia where I was one of three gentiles in the entire town. I had an entire drawer of Yamikas. That was great...they were warm on my head and velour. In between 10th and 11th grade my parents decided it would be a great idea to move down to a little redneck town in Florida called Spring Hill, which I hated for every second I was down there. (Well, except for you Renee...you rocked.) In fact, I think my bags were packed on stage as I accepted my high school diploma. I bolted back to Philly and had stops in Newark DE, Long Beach Island NJ, and Palm Beach FL, where I graduated from music school. I then finished up undergrad at Temple University in Philly and studied communication, and this new thing called the "Internet". (It was 1994). I became a web designer, and worked that field for 15 years. I still do design and development, but only if you hold a gun to my head. In 1997 I moved to Boulder Colorado, and have lived there and in Denver for almost 13 years, until 2012 when I moved to San Diego. After a few brief stints working for other people, I found myself to be truly unemployable around 2005, and have been on the entrepreneurial track ever since. From 2004-2008, my parents would fall ill, and basically "level" me in all aspects of my life. Emotionally, financially, etc...They both passed away in 2007, just 7 months apart. I tried to "muddle" through 2008, and didn't have much success. But I decided to take actual time to mourn, so in 2009, thanks to my wonderful friend Melanie, I went to Europe to spread their ashes everywhere I could. You see, I had a "dream" as an adult to surprise my parents with a trip to Europe, so this was my best substitution. So, I got a little Italian Parmesan Cheese shaker, and I ventured off into the wild blue yonder. And they are *everywhere*. In the Sistene Chapel, the Beaches of Normandy, Notre Dame...you name it, they're there. I arrived back in the States, healed, broke, and happier than I'd been in years. But I knew that I no longer wanted to trade a dollar for an hour, so I went looking for something else. That's when network marketing and internet marketing found me. It's been 4 years since I found that world, and the transformation it's made in my life has been nothing but profound. I've met amazing people in the network marketing, internet marketing, life coaching, and entrepreneurship world. Every single day I learn from them and they impact me. In August 2013, I started a Podcast called The Solopreneur Hour - Job Security for the Unemployable. It's aim is to show the other unemployable people of the world the correct path to business success on their own terms. It's been an amazing ride. I'd love if you'd have a listen: http://solohour.com

In elementary school, Ashley had friends from both backgrounds, but by 8th grade, the Mennonite children would no longer attend school with the rest. Despite this separation, Ashley would still cross paths with them while driving their cars, while the Mennonite families traveled in horses and buggies.

SPECIAL RELEASE LOCAL EPISODE! Grew up in a home with an alcoholic mom who I KNOW loved me but because of the circumstances, I was forced into unhealthy coping mechanisms (people pleasing, magical "empath" qualities, constantly questioning my inner voice and compass) One day I realized I was communicating with my kids the way she communicated with me...not healthy communication patterns AT ALL I realized I was parenting with the unwritten generational parenting handbook that my ancestors passed down to me without me even knowing it.

Dennis is joined via Zoom from Atlanta by author Mark S. King to talk about his new book My Fabulous Disease: Chronicles of a Gay Survivor, which he describes as his "greatest hits" from years writing columns for outlets like Poz, Frontiers and Windy City Times. In the interview, Mark expounds on some of the experiences he shares in the book, like the time he won a car on The Price is Right at 18 while his 26-year old boyfriend cheered from the audience and his audacious, loud-and-proud coming out as a senior in high school in Bossier City, Louisiana. He also recalls the time when he was working at a gala event for the Shanti organization and his AIDS-stricken former boss, Daniel P. Warner, showed up with Miss America Leanza Cornett as his date, causing jaws to drop and tears to flow. Mark also talks about converting to Mormonism as a young man, largely so he could star in the musical Saturday's Warrior, how his jock brother David kept him from getting beat up at school and what it was like when protease inhibitors came out and changed everything. Other topics include: Mark's getting sober and finding out he's actually a nice guy, getting called out for his shallowness by his therapist, his column "Your Mother Liked It Bareback," which caused something of a furor and playing Trivial Pursuit with Rock Hudson before sleeping with him...and yes, there was a Doris Day question. www.marksking.com

How did I land the emcee role for one of Canada's largest TEDx? Great question. Here's the secret.At the end of last year, I took a CEO day for myself — no distractions, no meetings, no laptop—just me and my notebook. I identified four lessons that grew my business.I'm replaying the episode for you all because if there was a secret to my year, it was knowing how to focus. Getting to host TEDX and having room to say yes was made possible by taking the lessons from last year into 2023. I used to get so busy in the excitement of planning for the next year that I didn't spend enough time reflecting and distilling my lessons. Last year was different, and it paid off. Tune in to hear the lessons — every year builds on the next, and I hope it gets you thinking about the lessons you will distill and carry into 2024 for easier growth.

If you've spent a morning running up the long Blaine Street Stairs, you've passed right by the gardens. But the story of how this unorthodox public garden came to be is one of coincidence, love, and perhaps a bit of magic.

She tells us how she made the transition from employee to employer when social media was just emerging about 15 years ago. “I had been doing media relations, and I recognized that social media was going to be this new emerging way for companies to interact with people,” she said. “So, Slice was founded on that point of view—that media relations and social media really should work hand in hand.” The main topics of today's episode will be how Cassandra has learned valuable lessons about business management and leadership through serving on various boards. We will also chat about the importance of mentorships and internships and how they can boost your business. We will also hear about how Cassandra melded the cultures of her company with the business she acquired, and reinvented the company values together.

They crawl out from underground and terrify the masses. They create chaos, devour entire villages! Giant worms! Yeah, we've all seen stuff like this in the movies, but that's not quite how it'd go down in real life. Well, hypothetical real life. Say you're a farmer in this world. You own fields with rows and rows of vegetables and some fruit trees. Your friends are coming over today, and you're all going four-wheel riding in the valley near your farm. You're having a great time and don't even notice the beautiful blue sky disappear behind dark grey clouds. The valley gets swallowed by a blanket of darkness. Off in the distance, you hear rain falling. Dread filling your eyes. You book it out of there full-speed toward the farm. The rain is heavy now. The Earth starts to shake beneath. A gargantuan worm appears, the size of a jet airplane! It wiggles its way out of the ground and crawls on the wet grass... Here's another scary (or not?) "what if" video. This time, we tried to imagine what life would be like if huge worms lived inside the earth. By the way, if you're looking for cool facts about animals, this video is definitely what you need.

#470: The economy is booming. GDP grew 4.9 percent last quarter, the fastest rate of growth since 2021. Consumer spending jumped 4 percent. Unemployment is holding steady at 3.8 percent, historically low. The U.S. added net new jobs for the 34th consecutive month. And yet – people are worried. Online discussion around layoffs at its highest point since July 2020. High-profile headlines about major staffing cuts – most recently from Schwab, which is dismissing 2,000 employees – fuel these fears. Why is there such a disconnect between sentiment, which is pessimistic, and economic data, which is robust? We explore that qu estion in today's episode. We also discuss the controversial Credit Card Competition Act, which if passed might eliminate credit card rewards like airline miles and cashback. We talk about Mint, the budgeting app with 3.6 million users, announcing that it's shutting down. We also share details about the student loan repayment debacle. And we describe a landmark court ruling for $1.8 billion – yes, with a B – against the National Association of Realtors and several real estate brokerages, a verdict that may revolutionize the business model of how homes are bought and sold.

8 Figure Amazon Seller Mels Terlouw Goes Deep On Data Introduction Danny McMillan welcomes Mels Terlouw, an Amazon seller from the Netherlands, to the podcast for his first time on Seller Sessions. About Mels Mels started selling on Amazon in 2014 after discovering people selling $100k per month. He set a goal to hit $10k in sales by end of 2014. Hit $100k that first year. Grew to $2.4 million in sales in 2015, then continued rapid growth each year. Hit 9 figure mark in 2020 but had a setback afterwards. Still doing great. In 2016, started building own software tools and put them into a mastermind group. Opened the tools up in 2022 as Intellivy. Obsessed With Listing Optimisation Focus is on listing creation based on consumer insights. This can be the difference between 15 units vs 250 units sold per day. The Evolution of Amazon In the "golden age" of 2014-2016, selling was easy on Amazon. Fake reviews worked. Now Amazon algorithm and competition has evolved. Old tricks don't work as well. Need to go where "the puck is going" instead of where it's been. Get back to basics of selling. 3 Types of Amazon Sellers Ignorance Sellers: Try stuff without much strategy, hope for the best. Arrogant Sellers: Copy competitors thinking they know better. Vigilant Sellers: Build on consumer insights and real selling fundamentals. Understanding the Amazon Algorithm BERT algorithm understands search intent, customer persona/journey better. Search results will be tailored more to individual searcher. Recommendations are already customised to user. Search will follow. Amazon wants to match real world experience better. Adapting to the Changes Can still succeed in saturated market with the right approach: know your customer + selling fundamentals. The Iceberg Analogy Most fighting happening "above water" on Amazon right now. By going deeper below surface there is calm and less competition. This represents focusing on consumer insights and the lost art of selling. Video Lesson from Jordan Belfort on Selling Key points: Understand your consumer thoroughly Know their persona, journey stage, needs Ask pointed questions Craft sales pitch Develop products to match Optimise listings for buyer-focused messaging Start selling in the right way The Scientific Method for Amazon Listings Ask questions Research to find answers Form hypotheses Test with experiments Analyse results Repeat until find winning formula Implement in listing Key Questions to Ask What problem are you solving? What are alternate solutions/products? What are the customer objections, drivers, preferences? Brainstorm Extensively Get multiple people involved. Spend hours diving into data. Come up with creative hypotheses. Develop Listing Theme Focus on winning the click, converting the customer, countering objections. Weave together into cohesive theme for listing. Test and Validate Try different creative variations. Tools like Intellivy can help with robust testing. Make sure hypothesis proves true before investing in new listing. Case Study: Dollar Shave Club Upstart disrupted market by simplifying down to core job of razors - conveniently replace dull blades monthly. Didn't get caught in feature arms race. Addressed root consumer frustration. Types of Amazon Shoppers Different groups have different needs. Most sellers focus only on "need based" shoppers. But many other opportunities exist. Be creative. Connect on an Emotional Level Surface features don't create enough certainty and trust. Tap into beliefs, objections, and emotions. Storytelling and visual patterns are powerful. Focus on the Buyer, Not You or the Product Avoid self-focused messaging. Put yourself in the customer's shoes. Talk to them directly. Execute the Lost Art of Selling Go below the surface noise on Amazon. Dig deep into consumer insights. Master stories, emotions, and relationships. This creates real connection and converts browsers into loyal buyers.
