Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is a common underlying cause of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Bloating, constipation, diarrhea, excessive gas, or nausea are all hallmark SIBO symptoms. When it comes to diagnosis, the gold standard is endoscopic small bowel aspiration. This method is invasive, inconvenient, and not without risk. Breath testing and stool testing are now more commonly used. Today we dive into some specific patterns seen on stool testing that may point toward a SIBO diagnosis in symptomatic patients.

In this episode, Jeannette talks to Baiju Solanki. He explains how he went from teaching psychology to successfully negotiating huge sales deals. But realised that despite his great success that it didn´t “feed his soul”. A realisation that led to him radically changing his life, starting his own business, and fulfilling his dreams. He shares tips and approaches anyone can use to do the same for themselves. Baiju also explains how he coaches corporate leaders. Providing an insight into some of the leadership and performance issues many of them have. As well as some of the solutions he teaches. KEY TAKEAWAYS Don´t ignore that nagging feeling that you are not fulfilled. Take action to change that. Write down everything that is holding you back. The practical reasons as well as the intangible ones e.g., my family would not approve. Decide on what actions you need to take to solve them. Then physically take one or more of those actions. Mindset is vital. It really is possible to hold yourself back You have to adapt. Your goals can stay the same, but how you get there will almost certainly have to change and evolve. Identify something that you can easily change to make a positive difference and do it immediately. That will enable you to get started and gain momentum. If members of your team are regularly making the same mistakes, that is down to you as a leader. How you can break that negative cycle is explained in the episode. Before having difficult conversations, identify what your perfect outcome would be. Don´t have conversations about issues without having identified some sort of viable solution. If things are not working out for you, do something that is going to change your energy e.g., start exercising. BEST MOMENTS ‘Take an action. It is only in that moment of action that an outcome occurs.' ‘Your level of success and affluence is not determined by your past; it is determined by your choices now.' ‘The difference between those who are good, great and highly excellent is the consistency and or persistence. ´ ‘Don´t ask a question and answer it yourself. Just ask, stay silent and listen. ´ This is the perfect time to get focused on what YOU want to really achieve in your business, career, and life. It's never too late to be BRAVE and BOLD and unlock your inner BRILLIANCE.

Kwavi is 53 years old and BOLD! She is a certified Life Coach, Author, International Retreat Creator and an in-demand Speaker. Her niche is working with illustrious groups of women who are age 50+ to inspire them to live their best life! Kwavi received her B.Sc in Informational Technology from Thames Valley University in the United Kingdom. Additionally, she obtained her master's degree in Medical Informatics from Northwestern University in Chicago. Although she was very successful in her previous careers, Kwavi is equally proud of the excellent training that she received from the Life Coach School. Her emphasis is on the whole woman age 50 and beyond and her experience in Information Technology compliments her current career trek by providing women with tools and empowering knowledge. Kwavi also reaches women through her Master Classes like “3 Simple Steps to Live Your Best Life Over 50”. It is through Kwavi's commitment to motivating, encouraging and assisting women that accelerates her clients' ability to reach their maximum potential. This is a mission for her. In her exploratory work and conversations with women age 50+, Kwavi gleaned that the theme that kept permeating the dialogue was their feelings of invisibility. Kwavi in her mission to eradicate those internal feelings both within her clients and those external systems that contribute to this line of thinking became more determined to create solutions to this issue. “It is women who will make a difference in the world, says Kwavi. This is why she is adamant that it is not too late to walk into your authentic self and flourish in the way God has intended for you. “The world needs you”, says Kwavi. She has created the Flourish Online Community; in her words (as highlighted on her website) you will learn to reinforce self-care in the following ways: Get a whole new outlook on life in your 50s and beyond; Make your health a top priority inclusive of proper rest/sleep, increased energy and glow from the inside out; Identify habits that keep you stuck like people pleasing, perfectionism, shaky boundaries; Take steps to create the life you truly want Kwavi instructs her group members that there are six pillars to Flourish: It's all about you Relationships Health and Wellness Sleep and Sex Style To deepen her work with her women age 50 and beyond, Kwavi has written a book entitled “50 Questions to Answer When You Reach 50”. This is a guide that will help you shine and thrive! The book's aim is to get its reader to focus on answering questions that encourage you to really examine the things that are important to you. It is a non-judgmental and non-“preachy” approach to helping you pinpoint how you want to proceed on your life's journey without comparing yourself to others nor setting goals that don't serve you. You will walk away with a sense of renewal and a sense that all things important to you are conquerable. Kwavi has set a challenge to reach one million women, and she is determined to impact these women because it is them who are key to making our universe a healthier place for all. Kwavi has been featured on CBS, NBC, Best Self Magazine and the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Kwavi, who reside in Atlanta, is a prolific blogger, dedicated wife and mother of two teenage boys.

In the latest "trend" by high school students, they're dressing up and acting like cats in schools. Identifying as human isn't good enough anymore, so now some must cross species to identify as a cat to gain attention. And no, one seems to want to stop this and instead encourage it in their schools. Stop the world we need to get off. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
This is Your Anxiety Toolkit - Episode 206. Welcome back, everybody. How are we doing? We are on week 3 of the Self-Compassion Challenge. So welcome if you are new and you haven't caught up with our Self-Compassion Challenge. We are doing a 30-day Self-Compassion Challenge for everybody, so everyone can dabble in their self-compassion practice, maybe strengthen their self-compassion practice, and hopefully thrive with their self-compassion practice. Today, we're going to talk about the roadblocks to self-compassion. Now, this is coming directly from my new book called The Self-Compassion Workbook For OCD. However, even if you don't have OCD, this will apply to you. I did a poll on Instagram with almost a thousand people who wrote in and polled on the biggest roadblocks that they're having, and I've compiled it. Thankfully, I used it in the book. The cool news is there were so many people who agreed on those top eight roadblocks. So I wanted to share them with you today. We're going to go through each and every single one. But before we do that, I would like to first do the “I did a hard thing” segment. Now, for those of you who are new, welcome. The “I did a hard thing” segment is where you write in and you tell me the hard thing that you have done. Today's is from anonymous, and they have said: “I just got on a ship for a daily trip and I forgot to take with me my medication. I don't use the medication that much, but I do feel safe when I have them with me. This makes me anxious, but I am choosing to manage my anxiety.” How cool is that? Sometimes things don't go as we plan, and we have to rely on all of our tools and it sounds like Anonymous is doing that in an amazing way. All right. I have been doing a review of the week for people who submit a review for the podcast. However, as I'm recording this, the reviews have started to come in for the book and I couldn't help myself but share the very first review for the book. It made my heart explode. I was taking a walk. My friend called me to tell me there was a review, and I basically burst into tears. So here we go: “I've read a number of books on OCD in the past, but Kimberley's emphasis on self-compassion and its place in the ERP process is so, so refreshing and so very important. This is a must-read for anyone with OCD or anyone helping a loved one through OCD. It is a beautiful day to do hard things.” Thank you so much for that amazing review. The reviews literally are changing my life. Oh my goodness, I can't tell you, when you write a book, there is so much anxiety involved, at least there was for me. And so to have people enjoy the book is just literally the most amazing thing. The most amazing thing. I had no idea. Number one, total massive respect to any author of any kind. Writing a book is very, very hard. And so, I'm just honored to be able to help people in that format as well as this format, and in addition to CBT School and in my practice. What a joy. All right. Let's get to the show. Let's talk about the Common Roadblocks to Self-Compassion. Now, the first one is related to OCD. Like I said, if you don't have OCD, stay with me because the rest are really going to maybe resonate with you, but this one is very much hands down, was the number one roadblock people reported who have OCD to have a roadblock with self-compassion. 1. “I do not deserve self-compassion because of the content of my obsessions.” In the book, we go through each and every one of these in detail, but today I'm just gonna quickly knock each one of them out. So here we go. Your obsessions do not determine whether you are worthy or deserving of self-compassion. The minute you say that, you're giving too much importance to your thoughts, feelings, sensations, and urges. So the big thing to remember here is, your job is to have these obsessions and not respond to them as if they're important, and to practice taking care of yourself, whether you have them or not, that this idea that you're not deserving of them is completely false. In fact, we talk a lot about calculations in the workbook. Some people like we have these weird algebraic calculations where we go, me + obsessions = undeserving, or me + intrusive thoughts = I'm a bad person. I want you to keep an eye out for these little nuanced calculations that you have in your mind because they are dead wrong. Your thoughts are thoughts. Your feelings are feelings. Your sensations are sensations. You are not disqualified from being treated with respect and kindness because of them. 2. “I am not worthy of self-compassion because I have a mental illness.” Now in the book, we use a case study where we talk about this idea of stigma around mental illness. I really want to urge you, as I do in the book, to start to break this belief that there is anything wrong with you for struggling with a mental illness. We have to be the change here. We have to lead by example. If you have a mental illness and someone has shamed you, or you've experienced the stigma of that, your job is to be the change by treating yourself how you would treat anybody else who was struggling with a mental illness. And that would be with kindness and respect and care and nurturing. You're not disqualified, again, because you have a mental illness. There is nothing wrong with having a mental us. That doesn't mean you're less worthy, less valuable, less successful, less lovable. We have to break through all of those faulty beliefs we have around mental illness because it's no different to a medical illness. In my belief, the more you suffer, the more you tend to that suffering with kindness. It's not like, oh, well, some suffering is okay. We'll give some of my suffering kindness, but not the ones with mental illness because society has told me that there's something wrong with that, which is absolutely incorrect. 3. “I am too preoccupied with anxiety, panic, and uncertainty to practice self-compassion.” This is a common one, and I fall into this category as well. Sometimes when we're anxious, we rush too much, we speed along, we try to push it away, and we don't stop to go, “Wait, maybe I could be just kind. Maybe I could just be really gentle with myself while I feel anxious. Maybe I could slow down and tend to my anxiety.” Maybe that's the answer instead of trying to push it away or have it be gone, because that is the answer. 4. “It feels wrong to practice self-compassion.” Now, this is a really good definition of what we would call “emotional reasoning.” It goes under the cognitive distortion that, just because I feel it, it must be true. Now, just because things feel wrong doesn't actually mean they're wrong. It's often because you've been taught for many years based on society or your family about what's right and wrong, and we've never stopped to question, is that even true? Because it's not wrong to practice self-compassion. In fact, it's effective to practice self-compassion. It's helpful to practice self-compassion. We've already sort of declared you're worthy and deserving of practicing self-compassion. So your job is, even though it feels wrong, do it anyway. Do it anyway. It might feel awkward and weird to start with, do it anyway. It might feel bizarre and self-centered, do it anyway. That's what we want to do. 5. “Self-criticism and self-punishment are how I motivate myself.” Whoa, this one is so strong for some people. So many of my patients and clients have told me in the past, “If I don't beat myself up, I'm going to turn, you know, it's the only way I get myself to do things.” And I often say, “Okay, maybe that's true. It might work. You might find that self-punishment and self-criticism does motivate you. But is there possibly a more effective way? Is there possibly another way that you can motivate yourself? And yes, self-compassion can be used as a motivational force. Is there another way you could do it that actually doesn't create more problems?” In the book, one of the main concepts I talk about is compassionate responsibility, which is where you honor what your needs are, and sometimes that you do need to get things done. So you practice motivating yourself using what we call a kind coach voice instead of a critical voice. Both have the same outcome. Both are motivational. One tends to bring you down and the other one tends to cheer you on and make you feel empowered. Let's choose the latter. Let's choose the voice that says “You can do it. Keep going. You've got this. Keep trying. It's okay that you fell down. Just one minute at a time, get up and keep trying,” instead of the critical voice and the punishing behaviors and voices. 6. “What if self-compassion makes me lazy?” This goes together with the last one. A lot of people are afraid that if they're self-compassionate that they'll just become some sloth that doesn't do things and lets themselves go. I'm here to say, no. If that's what happens, that's not self-compassion anyway. Self-compassion is doing what you need to live a good life. It's not letting yourself off the hook all the time. Sometimes it can be to say, “You've had a rough day, it's time to rest.” But a lot of the time it's saying, “Yeah, you've got some hard things to do.” Let's be so gentle and so encouraging of you as you do those hard things. The whole phrase “It's a beautiful day to do hard things” is a self-compassionate statement. You just didn't know it yet. We didn't call it that, but that's what it is. The thing to remember here is, maybe you want to check your definition of lazy and weak. For me, this has been a huge part of my recovery, especially having a chronic illness and mental struggles. Is taking time off to rest really the definition of weak and lazy? No, it's just what human beings do. Humans need to rest so that they can restore themselves to go and do amazing hard things. Sometimes we're taught to believe that you should never rest, and you should never be lazy. And so you don't give yourself that basic need of restorative rest. So, so important. 7. “What if practicing self-compassion makes me snap or lose control?” Now, this is a big one, particularly for people with anxiety. This comes under the misconception that we must constantly brace ourselves for the worst. We must constantly be hypervigilant and hyper-aware of all the possible dangers. And so we have to constantly be scanning for danger, looking for danger, what's going on, what could go wrong. We know, number one, that that's compulsive in nature. It keeps you stuck in anxiety. But it also is a block, a roadblock to your ability to tend to your suffering, tend to the sensations that are uncomfortable, the feelings that bring pain to you. So an exposure, we want to actually practice not engaging in those hypervigilant behaviors and practice being uncertain on whether you will snap or not, or lose control or not, and just tolerate the uncertainty of that. Sometimes self-compassion is an exposure in and of itself because when you're practicing self-compassion, you're not engaging in those compulsive rituals that keep you stuck in that cycle. It's really, really cool that it can be both an emotionally intelligent behavior, but also be an exposure. It's like to bang for your buck, I guess. 8. “Practicing self-compassion makes me self-centered.” Now, we've had amazing guests on the podcast who have addressed this, but I will address it again. Being self-centered is not the definition of self-compassion. Self-centeredness is this idea that we're egotistical and everything has to be about me and so forth. What I have found in my own practice is, the more self-compassionate I am, the more I'm able to tend to other people's needs and be aware of other people's struggles and difficulties because I'm connected to my suffering. The more I am aware and meet my suffering, the more I can acknowledge and be in relation with other people when they're suffering. I can sit with them and go, “Yes, me too.” I can tend to their pain without having to make it about me because I'm there for myself. I don't need other people to make it about me anymore because I have already tended to my needs. I have unconditionally been there for myself, so I can be there for other people. It's so, so important. So that is the top 8. In the workbook, I have room for others. There's lines where you could add your own and you might find you have your own roadblocks. They are valid too. Identify them and keep an eye on them. The main work here is once you catch them, and you know they're happening, you can then move on to dismiss them and correct them and move towards tending to your discomfort, being kind while you ride the waves of uncertainty and anxiety and discomfort. It's so, so important. It's so, so important. Let me go right to the top. You deserve this. YOU. Yes, you. I'm talking directly to you. I'm looking you right in the eye. I'm going to conclude this episode by saying YOU DESERVE SELF-COMPASSION. You are valuable. Your pain matters. You deserve kindness and respect and tenderness in your suffering. Your suffering is important. It's not irrelevant. It's not silly. It's not childish. It's important. You deserve to tend to that kindly. I'm talking to you right now. I hope you're listening. All right, folks sending you so much love. I hope that you're finding this Self-Compassion Challenge helpful. Continue to follow on the lives on Instagram. That's where we're doing tons of live work.

This week, Dan Neumann is joined by Justin Thatil and Mariano Oliveti, both AgileThought colleagues. They are addressing today a very important topic, which is how to successfully address individual behaviors that might threaten your team's performance. In this episode, they dive deep into three efficiency killers: procrastination, avoidance, and delay, while providing strategies and ways to treat these individual behaviors to effectively achieve teams' goals and objectives. Key Takeaways When individual behaviors impact team delivery You can't solve individual behaviors from a team's perspective. Disruptive individual behaviors can be procrastination, avoidance, and delay. Build to perfection can contribute to delays in delivery. How do you spot efficiency killers? A procrastinator might be someone who is very busy but not with meaningful tasks that will help to achieve the sprint goal. Does someone have difficulties sticking to a productivity system? The daily Scrum is a useful tool to spot disruptive behaviors. Make sure there is safety within the team to call on someone who is struggling. Which are the strategies to treat efficiency threateners? Identify the root cause. If your to-do list is too long, you can split it into the specific goals you want to accomplish in a day. Prioritization is key! Ask yourself: Is this something I need to do right away? Can it be automated? Do the hardest thing first. What happens when it is not clear what needs to be done or what the outcome is? Not starting to work until you have an exact idea of what needs to get done could be a trigger for procrastination. There are intermediate steps too; you do not have to look at the entire journey at once. How to seek continuous improvement? True conversations have to take place, especially when there is a failure in delivery. Inspect the process of the work on a continuous basis. Who can solve the problems that are being encountered? Assign responsibilities. Tackle the problems first. The whole team has to work together.

Episode 436 called “You are Soft” was our most responded to podcast—good and bad. After listening to it recently, I still stand on what I said, “WE ARE SOFT” Soft equals weak. SO, when I say soft, I mean we are weak. Which is why I wrote the book, “STRONG Men Dangerous Times” People think Jesus was a pastor, I think he was more of a coach. Listen as Jim unpacks these thoughts. Get Your Copy Now! of Tell Them, What Great Fathers Tell Their Sons and Daughters www.meninthearena.org Men in the Arena Books and Swag Support the Podcast
It's possible to be a woman and a conservative. Many people are surprised to hear this: for some reason, the idea is out there that to be a republican is to hate women. I find this idea offensive, and in this episode, I talk about why you should too. Today, I talk about the myth that women should be Democrats. I ask why our anatomy should define our political beliefs, and I note that women are able and allowed to have opinions about more issues than just reproductive rights. I list the reasons I find the assumption that I'm a Democrat offensive, and I note that everyone wants to hear a woman's take on politics--until they find out she's conservative. “How does the left own woman? Did I miss the purchase of our gender and of our minds?” - Jennifer Nassour This Week on Political Contessa: Why the assumption that a woman can't be conservative is offensive Why feminism and conservatism aren't mutually exclusive Why a woman can have opinions on multiple issues Why you shouldn't let people assume your politics Don't Forget to Pick Up My Quick Guide!

There are lot of people trying to learn how to invest in real estate for the first time, and you can identify the "newbies" immediately by the questions they ask and by how they approach real estate in general. It's not easy to learn to think like an experienced investor when you don't have experience, but there are some general principles that new investors can apply to their mindset to learn how to "punch above their weight" in the RE investing space. So in this episode of Selling Greenville, we discuss the differences in mindset between the novice real estate investors and the experienced ones, with the goal of some novice investors learning to think more like the experienced ones. As always, if you have any questions or comments (or, of course, need a realtor), feel free to reach out to Stan McCune directly by phone/text at (864) 735-7580 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tim and Julie Harris demystify the pieces and parts which must work together for your Social Media presence to be successful. Part 1: COMMUNICATION. A) Communication is key. This is what social media actually is…it's an additional way to communicate with your friends, center of influence, prospects, clients and professional relationships. YOU should be efficient and professional at communicating effectively with all of these categories. If you hire someone else, you'll have to insure they can do this for you, and do it in a way that's appropriate to who you are. Typical things you must be good at to be effective communicating on social: *Identify current events which are interesting and impactful to your social followers. Housing news, mortgage news, inventory trends, new construction. Provide something of value consistently. *Understand all of your different tools and use them. Video, pictures, GIFs, testimonials, etc. *Have an actual content strategy. Sporadic updating on random topics is not a plan. What are you trying to accomplish? -Lead Generation -Community Engagement -Expand your Center of Influence -Engage online to engage ‘IRL' (in real life). B) How to get Un-Followed (according to Sprout Social research): 51% said ‘irrelevant content' 35% said ‘too many promotional posts' 34% said ‘too political' 29% said ‘ignored my posts, likes or comments' Homework from today's podcast?

Sinking time and money into outdated sales techniques is why so many organizations are struggling to increase their results. That's why the question should shift to focus on how to implement the most cutting-edge sales tools to identify prospects faster and nurture deeper relationships. My guest in this episode of The Modern Selling Podcast is a tech-savvy sales leader who has his finger on the pulse of modern sales in the digital age. Make sure to tune into my in-depth conversation with the one and only Michael Labate to get a digital front row seat to the incredible social selling tools, strategies, and insights he's using to 3x the sales conversations of his team. Michael Labate, North American President of Intellias has a remarkable career spanning over two decades in various industries including Technology, Banking, and Sales & Marketing, serving midsize and large enterprise clients. Combining his extensive business background with his Executive MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, Michael was instrumental at SAP, and, now Intellias, in establishing profitable revenue-enabling and revenue-generating business activities across regions with a focus on digital sales strategy, innovation, go-to-market, and operational excellence. The incredible insights Michael shares in this episode are exactly what sales leaders need to quickly gain an insider's advantage to master the art of social selling. Download this episode so you can hear how mastering social selling can land sales teams 100% better leads for 50% of the cost. How to adapt to remote selling the right way. The pandemic has changed how sales leaders are approaching customer touchpoints, for the first time in some organizations. So, I was curious to know what Michael has seen emerging in this space and what Intellias, a global enterprise, has done to adapt to remote selling. Michael shares, “If the pandemic did anything, it accelerated what I call social selling – it's broader than just social – it also includes the social tools and technologies behind doing this… For Intellias, it was a major adaptation we had to make. There was some of this in place, but never implemented in the North American market.” Even for sales teams with large technology budgets, it can be challenging to make that shift to more social-driven outreach in the current virtual selling world. Plus, without the right digital transformation training, many sales leaders have a host of remote sales tools and strategies but lack the clear vision to know how to execute. Michael encountered a similar challenge with moving Intellias into leveraging social selling. He solved that with mandatory sales leadership training, like the courses we offer here at Vengreso, for example, our Modern Sales Mastery program. “We had to establish baselines to see how well we were actually doing. We noticed very quickly, with doing online engagement, that being proactive and moving the conversation from email or phone call to social platforms that we started seeing a significant uplift in our results. But, we had to invest in training first.” Tune into the full episode to hear what Michael recommends that sales leaders and executives do before making the remote selling leap. Does remote selling work for every customer segment? At Vengreso, we always promote hyper-personalization in sales – no matter the client, like we do following our PVC sales methodology. And, I was curious to hear Michael's approach and if he saw Intellias moving back toward using more traditional sales methods, at some point in the future. His answer is exactly why selecting the right sales strategy for your customer segments is so important. “We have both SMB and enterprise clients. On the SMB side, social selling drives these important interactions, especially since we are doing a lot of cross-border outreach. But, on the enterprise side, the initial outreach is not happening on LinkedIn, it's happening very differently…” Listen to the episode (particularly around the 15-minute mark) to hear Michael's actionable advice on how to approach enterprise prospects in the digital age to consistently nail sales meetings. What are sales leaders really missing? Sales data proves that the fastest way to get into someone's office is not through a cold call or a cold email, but rather through a referral. Yet, despite 60% of referrals resulting in a sales conversation, it always amazes me how many sales leaders don't start an outbound cadence with the referral. This is such an important sales tool that so many teams aren't using that could powerfully move the needle on their company's growth. At Vengreso, our longest article is about prospecting and it outlines why the first step of any outbound cadence must be securing a digital referral. After all, why go after new business with cold outreach, when you can easily tap into the network you have at your fingertips? I wanted to pick Michael's brain and see what he believed was holding sales leaders back from using the power of referral. His insight was very telling, “When I ask sales leaders this same question, I often hear that it takes time to try to find that referral… sales executives are up against quota, so they'd rather ‘spray and pray' because they think it's easier or faster.” That's why Michael highly recommends that sales leaders take a very unique approach to get better sales referrals. Check out the episode to hear the strategy Michael uses to get more quality referrals – in less time. How do you win the cold outreach game? I knew if anyone could answer this question, it would be Michael. In our conversation, I asked him to share some of the data he's collected within a global sales engine that points to what's really working in cold outreach. Because I'm always surprised when I speak to experienced sales leadershow much emphasis they place on the number of dials they can make in a day. That's not what we consider modern selling at Vengreso. Instead, we focus on targeting specific accounts, with varied buyer personas and using that to make hyper-personalized outreach to a highly selective group. The data Michael shares validates that point too, “We tracked the likelihood that an outreach method would produce a strong lead over an entire year. The data says it all. Our cold calls had a 0.15% success rate, generic automated emails bumped up to 0.3%, highly personalized emails jumped up to 1% success rate, but LinkedIn was closer to 2.5-3%!” This new discussion around social selling is so powerful and immediately relevant for ALL sales leaders. We dive deeper into conquering cold outreach on LinkedIn throughout this entire episode. So, make sure to tune in to hear Michael's approach to social selling and how you can use it to consistently book more sales meetings. What's the modern selling wave of the future? Almost by accident, Michael shared this powerful statistic, “This method was 50% cheaper but it produced 100% more inbound responses.” So, naturally, I had to know what he was referencing. Michael calls it intent- or signal-based outreach and according to his results, it is THE best way to win the remote selling game. His approach to intent-based outreach follows five key steps: Identify a source to provide intent-based data. Look for trends in who is searching on key parameters. Based on the data, put these contacts into an immediate outreach sequence. Leverage integration tools to target these audiences with specific sales messaging. Follow-up with personalized messages that speak to the pain points (that you know they have). In today's technology-driven world, it seems like a straightforward framework to follow, especially when you deploy tools like Bombora and Zoominfo. When you look closely at the sales data – intent-based outreach becomes even more of a no-brainer approach to at least try. According to Michael, “When you use this targeted approach and reach out with messages that are hyper-personalized to people that you know have a problem that you can solve, then I've seen response rates shoot up another 1-2%.” But, this is just the tip of the social selling iceberg. Listen to the entire episode to hear Michael's top 10 must-have sales tools that he's used to quickly expand Intelllias into North America and beyond – using powerful social selling. If you get anything out of this episode, the 10 minutes on this topic alone is well worth the listen!

Destiny Aman runs JPoint Collaborative and has a background in behavioral science working as a risk communication expert and has over 20 years of helping translate science into practical solutions adapting to environmental risks, including in work that has supported FEMA and the CDC. She's here today to share more about how people think about risk, mistrust of science, and how to reach out about vaccines while maintaining relationships with people we love. 4 Steps Toward More Effective Vaccination Conversations Reflect on and invest in the relationship. Identify common ground, and (importantly) validate that shared common ground. Address barriers, using your own personal story. Make a gracious and respectful exit. To Do: 1- Get your COVID 19 vaccine if you haven't done so yet. Learn more about the COVID19 vaccines at the American Lung Association, and find where you can get your vaccine here. 2- Reach out to your loved ones about the importance of vaccination- feel free to share the last podcast regarding vaccine science or share what you've learned as an equal, especially in how to communicate more effectively. 3- Make a plan for the holidays and be sure you are giving friends and loved ones over a month's awareness of where your COVID safety lines will be for the holidays and what accommodations for unvaccinated family and friends you may be able to make. 4- Consider a donation to the American Lung Association here, who is trying to help share accurate information about COVID19 vaccination and fund research and advocacy. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Visit blog post for more information, or go to airhealthourhealth.org.

Reflection 285: Deception as an “Angel of Light”The evil one hates you with a profound hate. And the closer you draw to God, fulfilling His Divine Will, the more he will seek to attack you. Do not fear the bark of this little dog. One of the most common ways the evil one attempts to deceive you is by presenting himself as an angel of light. He does this by using his natural angelic powers of influence, speaking lies that have a faint resemblance to the truth. He rarely speaks outright with obvious lies since he knows we would immediately identify him as the source. Instead, he seeks to manipulate the truth and lead you into confusion, tempting you to doubt the truths that God has spoken and to doubt the holy Will of God. He may subtly remind you of your past sins and weaknesses while trying to mask the infinite Mercy of God which eliminates those sins and manifests its power through your weakness. He may tempt you to discouragement and despair, removing from your heart the hope you have been given in Christ Jesus. He may tempt you to anger and resentment leading you to believe that you are justified in holding on to these feelings. Whatever the case may be, the evil one is a slippery liar and you must overcome his deceit by turning constantly to the truth of the Mercy of God (See Diary #1405).Reflect upon the subtle lies that you have allowed yourself to believe. Whatever they are, you will know them by their fruits: sadness, anger, hurt, confusion and the like. Identify these and dismiss them through prayer. Allow the Mercy of the Lord's Truth to permeate your soul and set you free.Lord, help me to know the truth and to be set free through this knowledge. Please protect me from the subtle lies and deceptions of the evil one. I rebuke him in Your holy Name and entrust myself to Your protecting Hand. Jesus, I trust in You.Source of content: www.divinemercy.lifeCopyright © 2021 My Catholic Life! Inc. All rights reserved. Used with permission via RSS feed.

Episode Summary: Today we speak with Mark Jones, Owner of the New Orleans-based Blue Street Pools. Mark has been immersed in the world of sales from a young age, but never imagined himself touching the pool industry until quite recently when he decided to look for better opportunities as a new father. Not long after losing his job in Corporate America, Mark found his first account in a neighbor who asked him to clean his pool. One summer and another nine accounts later, Mark had completely replaced the income he made as an employee. He never looked back. Mark entered the pool industry in 2017, marketing himself solely through flyers which he disseminated around his neighborhood. But his breakthrough would come in 2020 when he settled on TikTok to promote his business. Encouraged by a friend, he created an account on the social media platform. Six months later, Mark had gained 100,000 followers on TikTok. Today, he has over 2.1 million. Listen in as Mark discusses how to build an online brand as a pool pro using TikTok.

Where I started with the marketing was: Identify a certain area I want to service, pass out flyers to specific pools that I want to do, and go from there. My [TikTok] page has turned into a community of people who are really understanding how to take care of their pool. It's just a whole mix of a whole bunch of people from all over the world trying to figure out the same thing, and that one thing is, “How do I keep my pool clear?” That's all I care about. At the end of the day, what I'm creating, being in the pool industry, are memories for families. My content is not for people in the pool industry. My content is for the homeowners that want to take care of their pools. If you show people what you're doing and tell them why you're doing it so they can understand, that's where people will start to gravitate to you—when you're teaching someone something they don't know about. That's what TikTok is all about.

After solving thousands of pains for all kinds of companies in every different market, Aaron Krall finally got fed up and decided to niche down. So he started a group called SaaS Growth Hacks five or six years ago, and it now has 27,000 members. Aaron Krall is the former Brand Manager at L'Oréal and the former VP of Marketing at Lead Generation Specialists. He also founded a SaaS growth accelerator to help companies with their SaaS growth, and he developed a new SaaS software.When Aaron started SaaS Growth Hacks, he did not know much about SaaS. He did not have a SaaS product either. He simply emailed SaaS founders and asked them to share any problems that they were having. When he first started contacting SaaS founders, he felt out of his league and inadequate. Over the past five years, Aaron has spoken to at least 1,000 SaaS companies and worked with hundreds of them. So now he feels that he has a pretty good grip on the market. Aaron looked at all the data he collected over the last five years. He came up with the top 20 percent of everything that can be done with a SaaS company to make the most impact and get massive growth quickly. When Aaron finds SaaS companies he can help, he implements that 20 percent to give those companies a guaranteed revenue increase. The companies Aaron can help the most usually meet three criteria:They are the best-kept secret in their market.They are succeeding despite themselves.They have excellent use cases, customer stories, or customer loyalty.When companies meet those criteria, the founders usually:Do not yet have a product-market fit. So they do not know who they can serve the most.Tend to undervalue their service and do not realize how valuable it is to their customers.They do not leverage partnerships.Identify your current customers who have paid you the most money and have been around the longest. Talk to them and find out what pain you could be solving for them. (Go to Aaron's Facebook page and ask him to send you the interview questions he uses. He will be happy to share them with you!)Aaron asks his customers what the highest amount would be that they would be willing to pay for his SaaS product. Aaron prefers to work with those clients who have partners out there who would love to work with them and are willing to increase their price and increase the perceived value of their product.Generally, most SaaS companies are undercharging because creative people tend to undervalue what they create.Aaron does not usually recommend raising your price for current customers.If you can solve something no one else is solving, you will automatically have a mini-monopoly.It is easier to find customers when you know who you're going after.An equation I used to grow from zero to $30,000,000 in ARR in less than six years:Have the big promise for a big outcome at the topAdd the certainty of the solution you are offeringAdd how fast you can deliver the result and how little hassle will be incorporated in that resultIdeally, you want to 10x the outcome of the solution you are providing.Partnerships can be broken down into three categories:Channel partners: Those are people who have built an audience similar to yours, who will promote you to their audience.Content partners: Find all the articles, listicles, and blogs that talk about the top 10 products in the market in the same category as yours, and try to get your product into those.Deep integration partners: Integrate your product with someone else's product in some way.As a founder, ask yourself what real estate is unused currently in your market that you could leverage while also benefiting someone else.You can find a lot of unused real estate in expired trials. If you have a retargeting list, that is real estate that you could rent to another company.You can also create partnerships by sharing Facebook audiences with other people on Facebook.Look at where your traffic spends its time and be aware of what they are looking at. Those are called traffic streams, and within them are transaction points. Come up with creative ways to get integrated into those traffic streams and transaction points.You can also get to know who your target audience is and do some outreach towards them.SaaS companies should not do free trials anymore because SaaS products are no longer something new or different. So instead of focusing on the offer of getting a free trial, focus on getting the outcome for free.

Are you a bit behind on your retirement savings and wondering how you'll ever be able to retire? One of our listeners feels the same way. In this Listener Questions episode, I'll answer his question as well as how to handle net unrealized appreciation (NUA), how to shift retirement savings after a job loss, and we'll wrap it up by discussing the ramifications of taking Social Security early. We're trying a new format this month and releasing 2 episodes a week. On Tuesdays, we'll release the main segment which focuses on the theme of the month, and on Fridays, you'll hear listener the questions. Make sure to check out all the episodes and let us know if you like the new structure. Change is hard! October has been a month full of change for me and change doesn't always go smoothly. Not only am I publishing 2 episodes per week, but I've stopped drinking alcohol and started exercising in the mornings rather than in the afternoons. Any time you bring about changes to the rhythm of your life it can be a challenge. This is why the transition into retirement can bring such trepidation. Even if something new seems daunting, with practice over time the situation will improve. The more you practice the bigger your muscles will get. With a bit of research, planning, and action, you can learn how to create a paycheck for yourself in retirement, how to tackle your taxes, and how to navigate the healthcare system. Listening to retirement podcasts like this one is a great way to get started. How to go from zero to retired Not everyone has a 7 figure retirement portfolio, in fact the majority of the population finds themselves wondering how they'll ever be able to stop working. One listener asks how he's supposed to be able to catch up on retirement savings at age 50. The first thing you need to do if you feel behind in your retirement savings is to acknowledge and accept where you are. The next thing you need to understand is that there is only so much catching up that you can do at this point. Social Security will be a large part of your retirement equation After you realize that there is only so much you can do it is time to figure out how to maximize your Social Security benefit. There are a couple of ways that you can do this. The first one is to work longer so that you can increase your benefit. The next idea is to navigate when would be the best time for you to file for your Social Security benefit. If you take it early at age 62 you may see your benefit decreased by 30%. Waiting until the full retirement age at 66 or 67 will ensure that you get your full benefit amount, and each year that you wait to file your benefit will increase by 8%. The beauty of Social Security is that it is adjusted each year for inflation and it lasts for the rest of your life. Retirement is about living out the best version of yourself To create a retirement plan you can live with, you'll want to increase your income and decrease your monthly obligations as soon as possible. Identify which bills you can pay off and try using the debt snowball method to pay down your debts. The less you can live on the more prepared for retirement you will be. Try to create a living environment that doesn't require a lot of money. Remember that rocking retirement isn't about spending loads of money, it's about creating an environment where you can live the best version of yourself.

Developing time management skills enables you to accomplish high-level goals that accelerate your business success. Time remains our most valuable resource. The most successful professionals master their time utilization, so their "hours worked" align with meaningful objectives. These time management skills guide seasoned professionals in their craft. So, the five time management skills you want to master are: 1. Schedule Calls Within Time Blocks Business professionals love to hear the phone ringing. A prospect, partner, or client resides on the other line, waiting for you to pick up the phone. However, fielding calls throughout the day can present a problem. If you spend too much time fielding all your calls, you will not have enough time for outreach and building your brand. Hiring someone on your team to field calls for you greatly alleviates this issue, if you don't already have someone in place. The person answering the phone can schedule a time for you to call back the prospect or handle the entire call themselves, so you don't have to. Connecting with colleagues and people in your local area on Linked-in and asking for introductions to potential clients expands your pipeline. Taking calls throughout the day limits your ability to perform these activities. Scattering your calls throughout the day will give you little time to embrace deep work for your other objectives. Scheduling your calls within a time block gives you set hours to get into the flow with other activities. Setting a time block is one of the best time management skills to master. This practice cultivates deep work, which is an essential element of highly successful professionals. Some of the most productive people in the world swear by time blocking. Ever heard of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Michael Hyatt, or Cal Newport? Yep – all time-blockers. They're squeezing every drop of productivity from their days, and you can do the same. 2. Identify and Prioritize Your KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) Time blocking gives you a scheduling framework to input activities. We all know specific tasks deserve more attention than others, but which tasks deserve the most attention for your business? Rather than take a guess, let your KPIs guide you. Decide the vital KPIs for your business and prioritize work that matches up with your KPIs. Revenue growth and profitability are two common KPIs. Professionals focusing on these KPIs would focus on activities that bring in revenue and increase profit margins. Digging deeper into general KPIs such as revenue growth and profitability gives you further clarity on your priorities. If you make the bulk of your revenue through specific products or services, prioritize activities that effectively fill up your pipeline with the greatest opportunities. If connecting with people on Linked-in more effectively fills up your pipeline than writing industry articles, then you should obviously prioritize Linked-in over articles. 3. Put Less Work On Your Plate When you identify KPIs, it gets easier to implement other time management skills. One of those skills is putting less work on your plate. Many professionals make the mistake of seeing a busy calendar as a successful one. Rather than focus on how many hours they work, successful professionals fill their calendars with impactful activities that are the highest payoff. Pursuing fewer tasks gives them more time to focus on what most contributes to the bottom line. Review all of the work you perform in a given day, week, and month. How many activities produce negligible results? How many activities lead to incredible results? According to Pareto's Principle, 80% of our results come from 20% of our work. Discover the few activities that yield most of your results. Then, phase out the many activities that only lead to 20% of your results. 4. Slow Down To Speed Up Slowing down to speed up is one of the most underrated time management skills. If you speed up and always keep yourself busy, you will eventually hit a productivity roadblock. Slowing down your workday with mini breaks allows you to recharge. A quick walk, exercise routine, or meal away from the screen goes a long way in refueling your mental state. Before important races, runners slow down their mileage and workout paces. They don't burn themselves out leading up to a race. This level of preparation gives runners plenty of additional energy to thrive on race day. There is a time and place to work extra hours. However, there is also a time to slow down. Mini-breaks and vacations help you with slowing down. Not only do professionals temporarily slow down via mini breaks but also by reviewing their businesses. Most professionals make the mistake of staying busy without asking themselves if they're taking an optimized approach. Taking a step back from your business to review operations will help you understand if you're moving in the right direction. This review will help with prioritizing your time and addressing essential items. 5. Track Your Time Even if you apply the other time management skills, you can't improve in areas you don't actively track. Tracking your time allows you to spot opportunities for improvement. You can use a time management app like Toggl, for one example, to document the time you spend on each activity. Tracking your time allows you to see if your time management strategies are working rather than guessing. Professionals strive to remove as much guessing as possible from their success. In a survey of business professionals, when asked, they consistently feel they waste approximately 2 hours a day, which translates to 10 hours a week, etc. Let's not focus on how much time is actually wasted as the focus needs to be on what you can do with the wasted time to generate even more money, work less, or do other things you really want to do. Use a time log to help you know where you are actually spending your time during the day. Periodically use this time log for a 2-week period of time to help you continue to be time efficient. This tool can be utilized by everyone on your team at the same time. Talk about what you realized at the end of the 2 weeks and how you can get even better with managing time. Think about it for a minute. When you track what you eat, you watch more of what you put in your mouth as it has to go on a food log that someone else will be reviewing and helping you be better at nutrition. The same works when you apply it to your valuable time. You think twice about doing activities that aren't moving you forward because you have to write them down.

Simple instructions come with the exercise to help you know how to complete the time log. Time management is vital for any business professional's success. Make sure you prioritize these time management skills to master your time utilization, so you can accelerate your business results and enjoy having your ideal business and your ideal life.

It's the premiere episode of The Grown-Ass Woman's Guide! Let's dive in, shall we? In a recent poll, 100 Grown-Ass women were asked: “How often do you feel like you're not enough in one or more areas of your life?”The answer may surprise you. But what's even more important is WHY we feel like we're not enough and what we can do about it. In this episode, you'll hear from therapist Melody Murray who provides some key insight Plus, learn five simple ways to feel more enough that's worked for me and so many other grown-ass women.Identify the area or areas in which you feel like you're not enough. If there are multiple, write them all down, but then we're going to pick one at a time to go through the process. Define what enough looks like in that area. What does it even mean? What does it look like to be enough as a mom, in your job or a friendship? It really helps to define what it is that you think is enough so you can actually compare where you are and where you think you should be. Imagine someone you love, it could be your best friend, a sister, neighbor, maybe even a daughter. Would you hold her to the same impossible standards you expect of yourself? Would you judge her so harshly? Or would you cut her some slack? What makes you so unique that you are expected to achieve some bogus level and be this person that you would never expect someone else to be? Who is determining your enoughness or not enoughness? When we put our own value in the comments of other people, how can we not feel like we're not enough, especially when that person hasn't even gone through their own healing journey? Spoiler alert: the person you should be listening to is you.5. Imagine for a moment that you are enough right now. Just be quiet with yourself and say, I am a human being doing the very best I can. And that's enough. I am enough. How would your life look if you stopped and you reminded yourself every day just for five seconds, 10 seconds, 30 seconds, five minutes? Huge thanks to our sponsor!
