    Jon Acuff is brilliant! I met him as we both found ourselves on the same tour of speaking events with one client and we bounced to a few cities together.
    Not only is he awesome on the stage, he has so much more to offer outside of his stage performances. You may know him from his incredible books Quitter, Start, Do-Over, and Finish.
    Jon Acuff shares his insight into the word "Motivation".
    Listen in on our conversation and enjoy learning from being a fly on the wall to our discussion.

    S2 Ep 9: Jess Pettitt Talks "Normal"

    S2 Ep 9: Jess Pettitt Talks "Normal"

    Jess Pettitt is possibly my newest friend of this season. I have heard so much about her from mutual acquaintances and we had regularly been in the same rooms but never really had time to connect.
    That's why I invited her to chat with me via Zoom and thought you fine people might enjoy eavesdropping.
    Jess wrote the book Good Enough Now and is a living dictionary definition of the term "Good People" - So what did I choose to chat with Jess about... Obviously I picked the simplest option!
    Jess Pettitt shares her insight into the word "Normal". Listen in on our conversation and enjoy being a fly on the wall to our discussion.

    S2 Ep 8: Scott McKain Talks "Service"

    You know those moments when you imagine that the people you see as heroes become your friends. Meeting Scott McKain and now having him as a dear friend allows me to live out that dream several times a year.
    The man is truly ICONIC - so it's no surprise that is what he has entitled his latest book. If you have not read his work or are unfamiliar with his work, that needs to change right now!!!!
    Scott spends much of his life helping the world's best brands get better! His insights into customer service and consumer experience are soooo powerful. That's why I picked a boring and overused word, and thought I would see what Scott had to say about it!

    S2 Ep 7: Toni Newman Talks "Innovation"

    S2 Ep 7: Toni Newman Talks "Innovation"

    When I grow up, I want to be more like my brilliant friend, Toni Newman. We met through a beautiful community of speakers and in every interaction I become more in awe of this lady's talents. As the third Canadian in this series it would indicate that there are good things in the water across that border because Canada sure has some exceptional people!
    This episode is simply stellar. So many practical, thought provoking and actionable takeaways that come from our chat about a hugely overused and under appreciated word. In "Words With Friends" you get to hear me chatting about a specific word with one of my incredibly talented friends.
    Toni Newman shares her insight into the word "Innovation." Listen in on our conversation and enjoy being a fly on the wall to our discussion.
    Oh and one more thing - check out Toni's speaker video at www.toninewman.com - it is incredible and demonstrates how she truly practices what she preaches. You can even see how much better than mine it is if you want to compare :) www.philmjones.com

    S2 Ep 6: Scott Stratten Talks "Speaking"

    S2 Ep 6: Scott Stratten Talks "Speaking"

    In Matthew McConaughey's famous Oscar acceptance speech, he mentioned that you need 3 things.... Someone to look up to, Something to look forward to, and A Hero to chase.
    In my world, I have a friend that delivers me all 3 of those requirements in one human. He is a role model in both my personal and professional life, I look forward to every time I am in the presence of him and his incredible wife Alison and damn I wish I could catch up with him.
    The man is a living legend and I was tempted to speak with him about a word that included the letters "UN".... Why? you may be thinking.... Well Scott and Alison are the creators of Unmarketing, Unselling, Unbranding, and the brilliant Unpodcast. So instead of talking about any of the UNbelievable obvious words, or reaching for the comedic "manbun" option, instead....

    Scott and Allison are worth looking into and a great place to start is www.unmarketing.com As always - you can find me at www.philmjones.com
