About Karen Deis: When she began in the mortgage business, she never imagined that she would become a pioneer and an advocate for women in the mortgage business. In her small town, she was the first woman closing agent, the first woman loan officer, the first woman branch manager, and ultimately the first women-owned mortgage company with an all-female staff.Then something happened: her sister, co-owner of our company, was diagnosed with breast cancer. She couldn't go on in the business without her, so they sold the company at a profit because of their huge client database and consumer-direct marketing strategies, which are still relevant today.Rather than going back to working as a loan originator, she realized her desire was to share and mentor other loan officers on how to increase THEIR mortgage business. She knew that she could help them be successful and make more money than they ever could have imagined.So she built and created online and live events for loan officers and she has been doing them for the last 22 years. Karen was the first woman contributing editor for Mortgage Originator Magazine. She also built and created Loan Officer Magazine in 2002, online seminars in 2004, Mortgage Girlfriends membership group in 2007, Mortgage Currency in 2008, and Mortgage Women Speakers Bureau in 2020. She has also written several books for mortgage loan officers, which include Little Book of Mortgage Scripts, Little Book of Mortgage Seminars, No Shiny Objects – 29 Timeless Mortgage Marketing Strategies, Dear Younger Me: 68 Women Share their Mortgage Business Advice, and more. Today, she considers herself semi-retired as she is still involved in speaking and coaching clients.She is a Junior Achievement instructor and Volunteer for Dress for Success, South Dakota. Her husband and children are all engineers and she has 3 beautiful grandchildren. In this episode Steve and Karen discuss:Putting your mind in a toward state It's still important to have personal connections Connection rather than competition Engaging people in social mediaKey Takeaways: When our mind is in a “toward state,” meaning we are moving toward something, we become more creative, more thoughtful, and even smarter. Our prefrontal cortex works and we reduce cortisol and stress. Many things have changed over the years, but what hasn't changed is that it's still important to have personal connections with people. Technology has made it possible to converse with people a lot easier but it's better to go beyond that and engage people personally on a deeper level. People you do business with should become friends. Instill a spirit of camaraderie and collaboration with people. Encourage connection and not competition. In social media, ask questions that generate conversations. Reply back to those who comment individually. If it gets a little more involved, tell them you're going to send them a private message. “Take care of your people. You have the ability to read how your people are feeling and what they're thinking - you react to that as well.” - Karen DeisConnect with Karen Deis:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/KarenDeis Website: https://karendeis.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/karen-deis-7b91a66 Connect with Steve and Jason:LinkedIn: Jason or SteveWebsite: Rewire, Inc.: Transformed Thinking Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgShow notes by Podcastologist: Justine TallaAudio production by Turnkey Podcast Productions.

HOW ARE YOU TEACHING YOUR KIDS ABOUT MONEY? Watch on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/idDFkyzxJMo On this episode we are joined by James Woodall. James is the Founder and CEO of Woodall Wealth Management and a Certified Financial Planner (CFP). On this episode we discuss: Estate Planning Teaching Finance to Your Kids The 6 Key Behaviours of Investing For places to listen, places to connect on social media, to be a guest, collaborate with or sponsor DTE visit: https://linktr.ee/DisruptTheEveryday James' Website: https://www.woodallwealthmanagement.com/ About James James Woodall is the Founder and CEO of Woodall Wealth Management. James' passion for Wealth Management has always been around, as a child he was fascinated by the stock market in Junior Achievement and had always been drawn to investing. He graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in International Economics and Finance after studying Mechanical Engineering and realizing it wasn't for him. Moving into the Finance industry he fell in love with Wealth Management and worked with advisors for a decade when he realized his passion for financial planning and becoming an advisor himself. Still dealing with the effects of his Grandfather's passing and seeing the impact of estate plans going awry, he earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® certification from the CFP® Board, using the Southern Methodist University's program. The desire to build a firm focused on planning for generations so that others avoid the family issues that derive from poor estate planning pushed him to open his firm in 2022. When James isn't working you can find him reading, cooking excessively large meals for family and friends, or slowly learning to golf. More About James in his words I started working in the back office of a large financial institution a decade ago focusing clients of all types to help them review their tax forms and review cost basis issues. Initially I was not a fan of the role, however sitting in that seat allowed me to see what worked and what didn't work, from large family offices ($50 million+) to people starting out, and I always kept in mind what they did. Then I moved to supporting advisors and was always stunned at how little some advisors knew, not just from an operational POV, but an investment POV as well. From there I worked in product development supporting advisors and that's when I fell in love with being an advisor. I moved to the advisory side of that large brokerage firm and loved the clients and realized that I wasn't being an advisor, I was being an asset gatherer. From there I moved to a small Wealth Management shop and worked 16+ hr days and studied for my CFP, learning everything there is to learn. At that point the firm was sold and I moved into being a consultant for advisors at a small broker dealer. The call of being an advisor and building a firm the right way to truly spend time with the clients and their families was too much and I started Woodall Wealth Management. My focus is on Family Stewards and Family Businesses to help provide them financial peace of mind. The reason why I focus on this niche is when my Grandfather passed there was no estate plan, causing issues within the family that still last to this day. So my mission is to help my clients avoid that from the outset and its been extremely rewarding and fulfilling.

In this episode, Ben speaks with trial lawyer and trial consultant Phillip Miller about how he helps trial lawyers deconstruct and then build a winning case for trial. Phillip starts by identifying landmines that will cause you to lose the case. Each landmine must be made irrelevant, immaterial, or otherwise overcome so that it does not sink the case. Phillip then talks about questions that every juror needs answered: why is the case important? How will the verdict affect meaningful change apart from money? Who is the villain (wrongdoer) in the case? What is the “real evidence”—i.e., the evidence that is not manufactured by one side of the other? Has this happened before? Phillip talks about his strategy for voir dire, which involves using a series of clear PowerPoint slides to frame critical issues that identify good and bad jurors or prime jurors on important issues in the case. About Phillip MillerTennessee Serious Injury Attorney "Making the world a little better and a little more fair for everyone." Phillip Miller is a nationally recognized attorney who specializes in representing people and families who have experienced serious, catastrophic injuries and death. He is certified as both a civil trial specialist and a pre-trial specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Mr. Miller has been recognized as one of the “Best of the Bar” by the Nashville Business Journal, as a "Super Lawyer," is "AV" rated, and his firm has been designated as one of the pre-eminent law firms in the United States.

Mr. Miller is a frequently sought lecturer on legal issues and has spoken at the National Judicial College, Harvard Law School, the University of North Carolina, Sanford Law School, The William Mitchell School of Law, the Nashville School of Law, the University of South Texas, and Duke Law School. As part of his practice, Mr. Miller is frequently hired by other firms to help them prepare their biggest, most significant cases. Firms in Michigan, Alabama, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Texas, Oregon, Kansas, California, New York, New Jersey, Colorado, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Missouri have used Mr. Miller to help them recover tens of millions of dollars for their injured clients. Phillip's passions include education, the environment, dogs, and what he would describe as "making the world a little better and a little more fair for everyone." In addition to being a founding sponsor of School Aid, International, and sponsoring a Head Start class for more than 18 years, Phillip has also volunteered for Junior Achievement, bringing a businessman's perspective to middle school students. He is a lifetime member of the Sierra Club and belongs to the Tennessee Environmental Council, Tennessee Greenways, Nashville Greenways, and the World Wildlife Organization. Phillip sponsors "Rover," a free neutering/spaying program though the ASPCA, and visits them whenever they are nearby providing services to needy pet owners in the area.
Sales aren't a goal to achieve but a skill to train and improve. Just like any sport, careful practice and preparation improve your chances for success. However, in sales, success is solving a customer's problem with a custom solution perfectly tailored for their needs. Success is not the money you make or the record number of sales you achieve. The best way to provide this custom solution is by asking questions and listening to customers' stories and experiences. An effective salesperson is a good listener first. Our guest Marvin Montgomery has been a lifelong salesman ever since his time as a Junior Achievement member. His first job as Sales Training director for a national jewelry retailer prepared him for a career on his own. Now, with 30 years of experience as a motivational speaker, author, and sales trainer, he helps people across the country “Get Marvinized.” His novel approach to sales has positively impacted hundreds of businesses, emphasizing the value of practice and preparation for more effective sales efforts. These lessons and more are discussed in his two books, Preparation and Practice: The Professional's Guide to Sales Success and Training Wheels.

We wanted to dig into what these findings mean, so we caught up with Stephanie Gambone, President & CEO of Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Learn more about your ad choices.

Christy is the General Manager of the W Minneapolis. Rarely do introspective conversations about the evolution of senior level positions in hotels get to be had, so when I had the opportunity to talk with Christy about the state of play for a hotel GM, I jumped at it. The job of a hotel GM is demanding, in many cases all-consuming and constantly changing. But never before has there been a time where those demands feel like they compete, yet sometimes align and at the same time stretch your boundaries to new places. This conversation tries to shed some light on how the role of a GM is evolving while having to balance the priorities of different stakeholders. Christy shares great insight into leadership, providing purpose and how the hospitality industry is looking to the future.
