Work is not primarily a thing one does to live but the thing one lives to do," wrote Dorothy Sayers. "It is, or it should be, the full expression of the worker's faculties, the thing in which he finds spiritual, mental and bodily satisfaction, and the medium in which he offers himself to God."Swift on the heels of the pandemic came the Great Resignation. Millions of people around the world voluntarily resigned from their jobs. Economists and sociologists believed that the pandemic gave people the opportunity to reevaluate their work life balance and why they are working. On this episode of Christian Curious, we speak with The Denver Institute for Faith and Work's Director of Public Engagement, Joanna Meyer, about God's calling and why we work. Joanna hosts the Faith & Work Podcast and oversees the Women and Vocation Initiative. Prior to coming to DIFW, Joanna worked with Global Telecom, nonprofit consulting, and campus ministry with Cru. She has an MA in Social Entrepreneurship and graduated magna cum laude from the University of Colorado Boulder. She also completed her a certification of Women and Leadership through Cornell University. She is a contributor to the multi-author book, Women in Work, Bearing God's Image and Joining in His Mission Through Our Work.

SCALING SALES-BASED BUSINESSES FT. (JOSH TROY) WITH (ALEX QUIN) | (EPISODE #) Episode Summary: In this podcast, Alex interviews Josh Troy, founder of the WFS (Wires From Strangers) Group. The WFS group is a brand that helps businesses scale integrity-based sales operations. Together, they talk about building offers and why crafting a pitch before reaching out is essential. Finally, they tackle common mistakes, and obstacles salespeople make when scaling their business. Wisdom Nuggets: Building an offer is important before reaching out to a client. An offer usually includes brand voice, marketing hooks, and a CTA. It's important to put together an offer that is appealing and speaks to the client's needs in order to increase the chances of them working with you.Pitch matters because it's the first step in getting a client to say yes to working with you. Your pitch should be well-thought-out and tailored to the specific client you're reaching out to. It's also important to have a strong understanding of what the client is looking for so you can position your offer in the best light possible.Evolving your offer is key to success in business. By always being open to change and making sure your offer is up-to-date, you'll be able to maintain strong relationships with clients.Podcast Outline: Alex: (00:18) This is Josh Troy, founder of the WFS group. What's up, man. Thanks for jumping Alex: (00:27) let's give everybody a little bit of context. We met at Jeremy's Q2, my back Q3 inner circle mastermind. It was a fantastic weekend. You presented; I was really blown away by your presentation.Alex: (01:15) There's a ton of marketing agency owners in there doing six figures a month, seven figures a month. And ultimately, we're all here to help each other out. And that's what we wanna do on this podcast today. Alex: (01:52) So what's up with Wires From Strangers? How did this come to life? Josh: (01:56) Yeah. So first of all, so wires from strangers, we also call it WFS group. We scale integrity-based sales operations. And I think that was the presentation that you heard me speak on at the mastermind. It was like my 10 best nuggets for scaling integrity-based sales operations.Alex: (03:34) A lot of people have a great offer. They have a great business, but they have sales; it's happened to me in my businesses.Alex: (05:34) So what, what are the biggest mistakes you see people usually make in their sales system.Josh: (07:12) Pitch design is one of the main ones. People don't spend enough time, really diving deep into how their offer needs to be pitched to resonate.Josh: (10:01) Offer, design pitch, design, process design. Alex: (13:23) A lot of the time I notice, especially because I've been in digital marketing for a while, is that not every time digital marketers care to see the process all the way throughAlex: (14:11) There's a whole lot to it to finally get them on the phone. And even after you get them on the phone to get the deal closed.Josh: (17:39) There's three things to me that I've, and I didn't always know this.Josh: (23:27) I'm 29 now I was 20. Then this is almost a decade ago. I had to explain to people why videos were a smart thing to pay for as a business.Alex: (23:42) To have a video production was like something really glamorous because at most what was working was photos. Instagram was popping at that point. Josh: (23:56) Totally. I mean dude, at the time back, I mean just a couple years before that the only people that were producing like videos and commercials and ads were the biggest companies in the world that could pay for TV.Josh: (26:10) I'll say side note real quick. If there's somebody that's listening to this by chance, that's a server right now. The first thing that you should do is go get a job at a high end restaurant, cuz you'll triple your pay overnight doing the same exact thing.Josh: (29:50)That's it, man. So going back real quick, I'll wrap this up for you on the, on the story of like how it kind of continued to evolve is so I, I started iron wall now, the video marketing company. So that was, I, I built the entire thing from cold calling.Josh: (31:57) So I have so much strategy and structure around the first minute of a, of a cold call because here's the other thing about a cold call.Alex: (36:47) That's why, so I love sales and marketing. Like you specifically sales marketing on my end because ultimately you could apply that to anything that, that skill sort of selling.Josh: (38:33) Anything, anything that you want to be repeatable, you're gonna wanna have process documentation for. So it's not just for sales for really anything you wanna do. Josh: (40:48) What is the most repeatable high leverage action that you need? Make your, make your SOPs for that first. Alex: (42:09)Troy, man, I really appreciate you jumping on. I really hope we could continue this conversation in the future cuz I find a lot of value in what you do.Power Quotes: “Anything that you want to be repeatable, you're going to want to have a processed documentation for.

Gemeinsam mit Georg und Christian spricht er über Soziales Unternehmertum und aktuelle Entwicklungen der Szene. Was kannst du aus diesem Podcast mitnehmen?

A big believer of businesses and entrepreneurs as driving force for human development. Fahad believes as rationale human beings we don't buy or invest in "things". We don't make decisions based on features and benefits, we make decisions based on emotion, intuition and a range of other calculations which are complex in nature similar to the markets which we thrive in.This is true for the poor farmers, producers, big corporations, governments and financial institutions. Prior to founding iFarmer, Fahad worked for 10 years in the "market systems development" and ” and Private sector development space with experience in agriculture, micro-enterprise development, value chain development, policy analysis and private sector engagement across various countries in South Asia.Prior to iFarmer, Fahad worked at the NGO, Swisscontact-Katalyst, The World Bank, CARE Australia and SPRING Accelerator.Fahad has a BBA from NSU (2006-2010) and a Masters in Economics from NSU (2012-2013).About iFarmeriFarmer can connect farmers, space/landowners, investors, and crop buyers to create a complete farming supply chain.To date, iFarmer is used by 71000+ farmers in Bangladesh and growing rapidly month over month.iFarmer is an impact tech startup that has developed an innovative online platform that enables anyone in Bangladesh to easily sponsor in farming and livestock.

A Senior Professor of Practice in Classical Studies at Tulane University, Dr. Mallory Monaco Caterine loves to help learners find connections between the past, the present, the self, and the human community. She believes that a humanities education is a highly effective mode of leadership training and infuses opportunities to practice leadership into all of her classes, including Greek and Latin language, Greek culture, Ancient Medicine, and the Classical Leadership Lab. She earned her Ph.D. in Classics at Princeton University, where she explored Plutarch's Lives of Hellenistic statesmen and the lessons they held for his contemporaries in 2nd century CE Roman Greece. Her recent research focuses on the representations of tyrants and women's leadership in Greek and Roman literature.In addition to her work at Tulane, Mallory is also the co-founder and co-executive director of Kallion Leadership, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to comprehensive and inclusive leadership development through the study of the humanities both inside and outside higher education. Her work with Kallion has been supported by her position as the Greenberg Family Professor in Social Entrepreneurship and Cole Fellow at the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking. A Yankee by birth, she spends each day falling more in love with her adopted home of New Orleans, where she lives with her husband, son, and cat, Lil Easy.Two Quotes From This Episode"It was shocking to read the news and see so many of the things I've been studying in these texts coming to life in front of my very eyes. And I think this is when I really moved from working on Plutarch to working with Plutarch.""I've always tried to figure out this question of how do we learn from other people's experiences?

Ethnotek is so much more than just a bag! It's a celebration of culture, it's a community, it's a global movement!The one thing all of the Ethnotek weavers and artisans have in common is the fact that their craft is disappearing. Every year they see less and less local demand for their fabrics due to low yield and long lead times.Traditional techniques are quickly being replaced by machines and factory labor in major cities, drastically reducing the number of jobs and industry in the regions where it is needed most.By creating new demand for these traditional handcraft practices, the brand and its customers are in a sense forging an effort to keep them alive and well and in the same villages from which they came.The last and most important part of the mission is to spread the idea that we should all celebrate each other's differences more often. The only way culture can stay alive is if we keep it that way.Culture runs deep; from the tribes of Yunnan Province to the Subways of New York City. From the Ghats of Varanasi to the Cafes of Paris. To ensure the survival of these incredibly interesting differences we must learn about them and retell their story. This is why we see our bags as a flag. A flag that you wave which says, "I care"​.Check out Ethnotek's Sourcing Roadmap: This is an article to describe Ethnotek's internal ethical guidelines for working with artisans and is to provide suggestions to designers & business owners who are looking to practice Cultural Inclusion in their supply chain."We in no way claim to be experts in this department and are still learning, but we do have over 10 years of first-hand experience and not only does our system work well, everyone is happy and having fun in the process!"Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Powered by: ReFi Jobs - ReFi jobs curates the best new regenerative finance jobs at leading companies and startups - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

Episode Summary: In this podcast episode, Host, Alex Quin, discusses music legend Russ with Kevin Pimentel. They also explore the topic of manifestation and motivation. They discuss how to use the power of manifestation to create the life you want and how to maintain motivation throughout the process. Wisdom Nuggets: Ruminating on ideas from books you've read. Alex shares that he reads books front and back and then highlights the most important to him at that moment. He then skims through the book again and writes the information he's garnered in a google doc file, and turns them into tasks.There are three essential qualities, qualities required for turning your real life into your dream life. Delusion, persistence, and gratitude. Delusion will give you faith when there is absolutely nothing in your present life that indicates you should believe. That's why it's the number one quality. It is the mother of all manifestations. Persistence is required because even if you have unwavering faith and believe with all your heart that you will achieve your goal, there will be times when it seems impossible. When those times come, you must remember why you started down this path in the first place and hold on to your vision no matter what. The third and final quality is gratitude. You must be grateful for what you have in the present moment, even if it's not what you want. The more you focus on feeling thankful for what you have, the more likely you are to attract what you want into your life.Podcast Outline: [00:45] Interview begins[01:43] So you recently flew to LA with me and the rest of the contrast magazine team to do a cover with Russ.[02:41]we found out about Russ through his music. Yeah. And we had the blessing of being able to feature him in contrast magazine.[03:06] I feel there are other ways of being able to communicate certain messages, books being one of them, and this book is called it's all in your head. Get out of your way.[04:17] Music is the soul stripped away from the body in audio format. When you record music, you transcend your body.[04:30] There are three essential qualities, qualities required for turning your real life into your dream life. Delusion, persistence, and gratitude.[06:17] Be your devil's advocate. Yeah. So that you can say, well, hold on now, am I actually wanting this? Or is this something I'm being led by because of my ego and to fulfill something that is worthless, right?[06:56] I'm successful because I am confident. Not the other way around. [10:49] You could be a rockstar designer. You could be a rock star consultant. You could be a rockstar trainer. You just gotta do it. Exactly.[13:14]I think one thing that we have to learn as human beings is that we're emotional beings, which means that we're always gonna reach these places. It's almost like you have to anticipate the fact that that's already going to happen. [14:26] What fills me up with the most enthusiasm is what I know is to come. So like I'm so, so motivated by my understanding of what it is that I am and I'm doing, and I'm building and then know it's like, you're bracing, you're bracing for it.[16:15]And one of the surest ways of reaching success in whatever ways success is to you is through repeating successful actions.[17:42] Everyone's just trying to understand this thing that we call life.[19:16] So yeah, no matter what's happening economically, no matter what's happening in the world, don't lose hope in your ability to create in what has not been created yet.[20:15] It's been a great time having Kevin again, this is his third time on the podcast. Love the way he thinks, love the way he expresses himself.Power Quotes: “You are gonna be the only thing that can stop you from achieving what you want” - Keven Pimentel.“I'm successful because I am confident.

His firsthand experience with mental illness, university-level education in psychology, and contagious positivity combine to fashion a spirit of advocacy and compassion unlike any other.Through both music and motivational speaking, Crowder's testimony has impacted millions of lives across the globe by de-mystifying taboo psychological principles and sensitive topics with levity and wit. He also studied Psychology at the University of Central Florida and has years of mental health advocacy work through the National Alliance on Mental Illness.After nearly a decade of clinical treatment, volunteer peer counseling, and public advocacy, Crowder now relies on the strategies he shares through Cope Notes to live a happier, healthier life than ever before.I have "SAVE THEM" tattooed on my knuckles.

The more often we think a thought, the easier it is to think, the more likely we are to think it again, and so on.

ACHIEVING GOALS AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OPPORTUNITIES FT. (KEVEN PIMENTEL) WITH (ALEX QUIN) | (EPISODE #78) Episode Summary: In today's podcast episode, Host, Alex Quin, discusses the art of setting goals and taking advantage of opportunities with Kevin Pimentel. They also discuss how your circle of influence affects your goal setting and how to keep pushing when you feel like you can't anymore.Wisdom Nuggets: Life isn't always going to go the way you want it, but you can always choose how to react to the hand you're dealt. In today's economy, it might seem like there are limited opportunities available, but if you're willing to work hard and be creative, there are always ways to create your own opportunities.When chasing your goals, It's important to have an accountability coach or someone in your corner who will believe in you and help you stay on track with your goals.The law of attraction is a powerful tool that can help you manifest your dreams into reality, but it's important to remember that you still have to take action in order to make your dreams come true.Podcast Outline: [00:44] We're back. We're back. It's been what? A few months. Yeah, this was planned yesterday![04:10] Just to give everybody context, you run a marketing company. I run a marketing company. We're both digital marketers. That's how we make money. Correct. You may see us doing a bunch of other, but we make money making money for people online.[05:34] It's funny how circumstance can determine possibilities. Right. Because a lot of times I think we get carried away with thinking, you know, it's like the whole thing, everything happens at the right time. [07:24] How many people actually write their goals down? Like on paper, on a notebook. And let's say like this year's goals, this quarter's goals, next year's goals, the year after that. And once I get those goals, then what?[08:05] Because sometimes just having someone that you have to report to in that sense where it gives you that challenge to be like, I have to get this done, cuz there's someone who actually knows what's up and they're gonna be like, yo, so did you get this done?[09:22] I mean like it got to the point where it was like I already got there, and I remember talking to the coach, and they said, wonderful.[09:57] There's that thing they say that luck is prep. When preparation meets opportunity. Luck is when hard work. Yeah. Hard work meets opportunity. [12:12] And then you see people that feel good for your, like, for your accomplishments or feel good for the things that you're doing. You usually see those people growing with you as well. So that it's very mindful. [13:12] Some people pursue something that makes them money.[16:21] You have to like, if you're doing business, like you really gotta think about like other things other than money and business, otherwise, eventually, you'll just find yourself like sitting on a mountain of money probably.[21:59] So there's this book called? It talks about thinking time. I, I can't, it's called the road less stupid.[24:41] Do some research, right? Who are the winners? Why do they fail? Who failed? And why did they fail?[27:45] Life is not always gonna be the way it is right now. So you always wanna brace for impact. You always wanna prepare for this. Wanna prepare for that? Not thinking negatively, but also knowing, Hey, if we're in times of abundance, for example, let's say right now, instead of going crazy, how can I make sure that when there is an abundance, I still could continue to live this way maybe.[32:08]But the point is to surround yourself with these kinds of influencers, start with the ones that you can actually control. So you have podcasts, you listen to, you have certain people on videos,[35:13] So if you can imagine a building in front of you, that's great, but you gotta go grab those bricks. Right. And you gotta lay 'em down, you gotta put the concrete, and then you gotta actually build it.[35:43] I think the law of attraction has gotten a bad reputation in some way. Right? Because people think that if you just wish for something long enough or you meditate for something long enough, it's gonna happen.[48:55]Well, what if you're a tribe in the jungle that's, you know, in their own system, what if you're in a completely different sociological situation that doesn't have anything to do with the way that this world, this country works and it's different belief systems. [50:22]Thomas Sowell and Sowell spelled S O W E L L. I believe it is. This man has, has truly revolutionized the way that I see race theory and the political realm.[1:04:04] Thank you for joining me on this episode of the hustle inspires hustle podcast.Power Quotes: “Get good at what you want to get good at.

As churches become unable to fund full-time ministry mainline denominations are starting to notice and have begun offering ideas in how to pastors can find outside work. One idea is taking part in social entrepreneurship. What is social entrepreneurship? One way it's been defined is from the Faith and Leadership website from Duke Seminary . They define it as “the process of pursuing innovative solutions to social problems. For Christian leaders, this blending of a business model with Christian mission can be a valuable tool to help sustain an organization while at the same time bearing witness to the reign of God.” That sounds exciting! But is it really? Loren Richmond Jr. doesn't think so. Loren is a minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and he has his own misgivings when it comes to using social entrepreneurship as a way to help fund bi-vocational ministry. Loren is also the host of the Future Christian podcast and he and I talk about this new endeavor and why it might not be the best way to supplement part time ministry. Stick around for the end of the podcast when Dennis remembers the actor Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek fame who died on July 30 at the age of 89.   ChurchandMain.org
