121 Take Intelligent Risks with Dan Kent-Smith

When you mix your passion with your vocation with your mission and profession, you find fulfilment in your work. This is what Dan Kent-Smith has found when creating his business Next Play. Leveraging the best of the LinkedIn platform alongside the people who worked there, Dan’s WHY is to serve those who want to future-proof their career and business by helping them to identify transferable skills to build and maintain their greatest assets. KEY TAKEAWAY “If you've got an idea that you think could go somewhere, check it! Think, can you do this? Can you talk to the right people? Can you actually push through with this? It is about taking those risks, even though you've got that fear inside, the butterflies in your stomach. Should you do it? Yes, you should do it. Go for it. So take intelligent risks for me is absolutely key.” ABOUT DAN KENT-SMITH It was 2012, Dan Kent-Smith had a sales development role and was using LinkedIn when he spotted an old work colleague of his working for LinkedIn. Dan reached out to her to introduce the company he was working for and she responded, "Dan, I'm glad you called, I've got a job for you". Dan did not see that coming and this is where his LinkedIn journey really started. He joined LinkedIn soon after and stayed for almost 5 years working with some of the world’s biggest companies. Today, Dan uses that knowledge to help execs, sports people and companies future-proof their career and business through LinkedIn.

KEY TAKEAWAY "You can wear 1000 hats if they all hang on one hook. Right? I navigate between many things in the course of a day but I'm always directed by a WHY.

118 The People Stuff with Zoë Routh

117 Control Your Environment with Tom Libelt

Tom Libelt learned from a young age how to sell and negotiate business by getting haggled by Russian vendors. His family moved from Poland to the US to escape communism and his parents took any job they could to survive. Seeing all this as a young man motivated Tom to control his environment, never want a job and keep moving forward as an entrepreneur, publisher, salesman and one of the top Polish hip hop artists. KEY TAKEAWAY “The thing with business is you can control your income and a big part of what stops you from making more is just mindset, procrastination and not taking risks. So you need that stronger WHY to kind of override those.” ABOUT TOM LIBELT Tom seems like one of those guys with the Midas Touch, where everything he works on turns into gold. He has published around 5000 Kindle books, built a successful SEO & online course marketing business, partnered with a Muay Thai champion, owned a coffee shop, a retail store, a record label, created a documentary, and released two albums with five hits on top ten Polish radio. All of it was bootstrapped and done with zero outside funding. Tom spends most of his time in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He runs Smart Brand Marketing and We Market Online Courses. “If you can’t sell, then you’re not in business. Marketing and Sales are the backbone of a company.” - Tom Libelt CONNECT WITH TOM https://smartbrandmarketing.com https://www.facebook.com/SBMPodcast/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/tomlibelt/ https://twitter.com/TomLibelt ABOUT THE HOST - AMY ROWLINSON Amy is a Coach, Mentor, iTunes #1 Podcaster, Mastermind Host, Speaker and Property Investor.

117 Control Your Environment with Tom Libelt

116 Find Your Story with Rachel Maunder

You don’t need to have a big story to be a great speaker! You just need to know how all your little stories that have life lessons within them can be crafted into a captivating presentation. A talk that has your audience totally spellbound from the very first moment you open your mouth leaving them wanting more when you finish. This is what Rachel Maunder does as she helps speakers to find and hone their stories. KEY TAKEAWAY “If you are holding back from telling your story because you've got that voice in your head saying, who do you think you are to share your story? I would say to you, if someone somewhere needs to hear your story to help them take the next step to make their life better, I would turn that round and say Who do you think you are not to share it?” ABOUT RACHEL MAUNDER One of Rachel Maunder’s first observations about successful speakers was they all seemed to have a powerful story to share – and she didn’t have one. This started her journey towards realising that everyday stories can be equally inspirational to an audience and that we all have a wealth of those. Passionate about inspiring people to speak up and inspire others by sharing their stories, both big and small, Rachel helps emerging speakers to hone their stories and to weave them into their own presentations for maximum effect.

114 Speaking of Influence with John Ball

Having always loved performance in some way, shape or form, John Ball developed a passion for public speaking years ago. On his speaking and storytelling journey, John discovered that there are lots of ways that we are influenced and persuaded often without our knowledge and through his own podcast and trainings, John now shows people how this happens and how people can in turn use persuasion and influence ethically. KEY TAKEAWAY “I think one thing that I feel is most important in life is to not just keep learning but to keep putting the stuff into practice because it was reportedly Lao Tzu who said to know or not to do is to not truly know.

When you mix your passion with your vocation with your mission and profession, you find fulfilment in your work. This is what Dan Kent-Smith has found when creating his business Next Play. Leveraging the best of the LinkedIn platform alongside the people who worked there, Dan’s WHY is to serve those who want to future-proof their career and business by helping them to identify transferable skills to build and maintain their greatest assets. KEY TAKEAWAY “If you've got an idea that you think could go somewhere, check it! Think, can you do this? Can you talk to the right people? Can you actually push through with this? It is about taking those risks, even though you've got that fear inside, the butterflies in your stomach. Should you do it? Yes, you should do it. Go for it. So take intelligent risks for me is absolutely key.” ABOUT DAN KENT-SMITH It was 2012, Dan Kent-Smith had a sales development role and was using LinkedIn when he spotted an old work colleague of his working for LinkedIn. Dan reached out to her to introduce the company he was working for and she responded, "Dan, I'm glad you called, I've got a job for you". Dan did not see that coming and this is where his LinkedIn journey really started. He joined LinkedIn soon after and stayed for almost 5 years working with some of the world’s biggest companies. Today, Dan uses that knowledge to help execs, sports people and companies future-proof their career and business through LinkedIn.

KEY TAKEAWAY "You can wear 1000 hats if they all hang on one hook. Right? I navigate between many things in the course of a day but I'm always directed by a WHY.

118 The People Stuff with Zoë Routh

117 Control Your Environment with Tom Libelt

Tom Libelt learned from a young age how to sell and negotiate business by getting haggled by Russian vendors. His family moved from Poland to the US to escape communism and his parents took any job they could to survive. Seeing all this as a young man motivated Tom to control his environment, never want a job and keep moving forward as an entrepreneur, publisher, salesman and one of the top Polish hip hop artists. KEY TAKEAWAY “The thing with business is you can control your income and a big part of what stops you from making more is just mindset, procrastination and not taking risks. So you need that stronger WHY to kind of override those.” ABOUT TOM LIBELT Tom seems like one of those guys with the Midas Touch, where everything he works on turns into gold. He has published around 5000 Kindle books, built a successful SEO & online course marketing business, partnered with a Muay Thai champion, owned a coffee shop, a retail store, a record label, created a documentary, and released two albums with five hits on top ten Polish radio. All of it was bootstrapped and done with zero outside funding. Tom spends most of his time in Chiang Mai, Thailand. He runs Smart Brand Marketing and We Market Online Courses. “If you can’t sell, then you’re not in business. Marketing and Sales are the backbone of a company.” - Tom Libelt CONNECT WITH TOM https://smartbrandmarketing.com https://www.facebook.com/SBMPodcast/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/tomlibelt/ https://twitter.com/TomLibelt ABOUT THE HOST - AMY ROWLINSON Amy is a Coach, Mentor, iTunes #1 Podcaster, Mastermind Host, Speaker and Property Investor.

117 Control Your Environment with Tom Libelt

116 Find Your Story with Rachel Maunder

You don’t need to have a big story to be a great speaker! You just need to know how all your little stories that have life lessons within them can be crafted into a captivating presentation. A talk that has your audience totally spellbound from the very first moment you open your mouth leaving them wanting more when you finish. This is what Rachel Maunder does as she helps speakers to find and hone their stories. KEY TAKEAWAY “If you are holding back from telling your story because you've got that voice in your head saying, who do you think you are to share your story? I would say to you, if someone somewhere needs to hear your story to help them take the next step to make their life better, I would turn that round and say Who do you think you are not to share it?” ABOUT RACHEL MAUNDER One of Rachel Maunder’s first observations about successful speakers was they all seemed to have a powerful story to share – and she didn’t have one. This started her journey towards realising that everyday stories can be equally inspirational to an audience and that we all have a wealth of those. Passionate about inspiring people to speak up and inspire others by sharing their stories, both big and small, Rachel helps emerging speakers to hone their stories and to weave them into their own presentations for maximum effect.

114 Speaking of Influence with John Ball

Having always loved performance in some way, shape or form, John Ball developed a passion for public speaking years ago. On his speaking and storytelling journey, John discovered that there are lots of ways that we are influenced and persuaded often without our knowledge and through his own podcast and trainings, John now shows people how this happens and how people can in turn use persuasion and influence ethically. KEY TAKEAWAY “I think one thing that I feel is most important in life is to not just keep learning but to keep putting the stuff into practice because it was reportedly Lao Tzu who said to know or not to do is to not truly know.
