104: It’s Time to Hit the Pause Button
OK, no need to bury the lead — the title of this post says it all: “It’s time to hit the pause button on Get Your Message Heard.” It’s not a hasty (or easy) decision, and it is one that I’ve literally spent the last 3 months debating. The driving force behind all that deliberation is my core and foundational belief that what matters most for all of us is playing to our strengths as much as we possibly can. It’s simply never made sense to me for people to work so hard on becoming good at stuff they don’t do well when they can create far more impact when they get better at doing the things they already do well. That’s why I found the book Now Discover Your Strengths by Donald O. Clifton and Marcus Buckingham so compelling when it first came out. Completing the included assessment and learning my top 5 strengths (from the list of 34 total strengths) was liberating and affirming. It also put a lot of things into perspective for me. Like why I always think about the bigger pictu...
103: The Real Story Behind My 60 Pound Weight Loss
If you’ve been listening to the last few episodes of Get Your Message Heard, you’ve recognized that a lot of thinking has been going on in my world. In fact, I’ve done more (and better) strategic thinking about my business in 2019 than I have allowed myself to do in a long time. A big driver of that has been the realignment of myself with my brand and my vision. Let me explain. For years I’ve been living out of balance. Medicating myself with sugar and riding the emotional roller coaster that comes with that — something that it took me much too long to realize was in my way. In this week’s episode I share a bit more about that and reveal the real story behind my 60+ pound weight loss, including the inciting incident that ‘woke’ me to the need to FINALLY solve a lifelong problem. It’s not being shared to push anyone to make a similar journey, but instead to help Get Your Message Heard listeners understand why this change in the way I physically walk the planet now has been s...
102: Approaching 300,000 Followers on Instagram (and much more) with Sam Qurashi
What I love most about having a podcast is the chance to dive into deeper conversations about things that intrigue me and will serve you. This week’s interview aligns perfectly with that. Why did you invite this guy to be a guest? Sam Qurashi and I met in the Heroic Public Speaking Graduate School program last spring. His soothing presence and amazing voice caught my attention immediately. But more important the way he carried himself and his helpful manner of engaging made me immediately realize that he had a lot of value to deliver to my audience. That became even more clear when I learned that he had done something few of us do — he started building his audience before he defined and started his business. The result: He is approaching 300,000 followers on Instagram as he prepares to launch his new business next month. That’s why I invited him to join me for a conversation and share some insight into how he did it and some advice on what we can do to be more effective in servin...
