    Make Moore Plans (With Disruptive Entrepreneur Rob Moore)

    Make Moore Plans (With Disruptive Entrepreneur Rob Moore)

    In this week’s show, Kevin talks to one of his mentors, author, property investor and host of the ‘Disruptive Entrepreneur’ Rob Moore. Kevin asks Rob his view on various subjects such as the impact of Covid 19 on his business and how he turned the downside to an upside, his coping strategies and the use of social media.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     
    Having more structure to your days and creating a new routine for yourself can be beneficial to your productivity. Having a structure whereby you map out your days means that you are more likely to achieve these things. Having this also forces you to be more disciplined.

     
    There is a lot of pressure from society to work a certain amount of hours per day. Comparison is often the thief of all joy. Stop comparing your routine to others and do what works best for you.

     
    The social media algorithms are designed to make us addicted to those platforms. The more they have us on their channels the more money they make. Everything has an upside and a downside, as soon as you see something as all upside you’re in a fantasy. If you go on social media expecting nothing but upside, then you are naive about the reality of it.

     
    It is important to set rules. Even if it is something as small as what time you read your book or what you have for breakfast. Putting those rules in place means that you are now a disciplined person.

     
    The line between social media being good for you and damaging for you is very fine. You need to have the wisdom to know where that line is. Keep the way you use social media ever-evolving. Social media feeds you what you have told it you want to see. If you are seeing things you don't want to see you need to give the platform feedback so that it will show you other stuff.

     
    Make sure you are consuming media that you enjoy. If you know something will harm you, don't listen to something because others said that they enjoyed it. Surround yourself with stuff that is going to influence you in the way that you want to be influenced.

     

     

     

    BEST MOMENTS

     

    ‘If you knew your future that would ruin it immediately’  21.12

    ‘Anxiety is a worry about the future, guilt is a regret of the past’ 23.19

    ‘Routine equals results, discipline equals freedom’ 29.28

    ‘Do easy things for a hard life or do hard things for an easy life’ 30.50

    ‘The line between social media being good for you and damaging to you is a fine line’ 57.07

    A Special Interview With Theatre Legend, Cassidy Janson!

    A Special Interview With Theatre Legend, Cassidy Janson!

    In this week's very special show, Kevin talks to theatre legend, Cassidy Janson, recent recipient of an Olivier Award for her work in '& Juliet', about her incredible stage career, including the many highlights, as well as the lessons learned along the way.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    William Shakespeare really was the rock star theatre producer of his day. His work drew crowds from far and wide, and as well as being critically adored, he was also publicly renowned.
    The arts, in particular, have been as essential as any other service during lockdown in terms of keeping people's spirits high, and reminding everyone of the beauty of life.
    Stories allow us to take the journey of someone else. This is why stories have remained at the core of every artistic pursuit since the beginning of time. They are the perfect vehicle for providing escapism.
    People are far too quick to write off the arts as unnecessary, but aside from the cultural enrichment, the arts also bring in vast amounts of money to the economy. Therefore, its dismissal by the government has been very hard to take.

    BEST MOMENTS

    'We knew it was funny, but you never know how funny it is until the audience arrive' - 9:56

    'During lockdown everyone has turned to the arts in one form or another' - 12:37

    'If we do bring this much to the economy, why are you not investing in something that will help the economy come back?' - 15:39

    'I don't know how I made it through my early twenties, I was so naive!' - 38:00

    Strictly Speaking - The Final Review - with Joanne Clifton, Lauren Oakley, and Becky Bishop

    Strictly Speaking - The Final Review - with Joanne Clifton, Lauren Oakley, and Becky Bishop

    We've arrived at the end of the 2020 series of Strictly Come Dancing, and it was an emotional ride for sure!

    Here with Kevin to discuss the series as a whole - the highlights, the surprises, and each dance in turn - are returning guests, Strictly performer, Joanne Clifton, Burn The Floor star, Lauren Oakley, and special guest, poet Becky Bishop!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The 2020 series saw a particularly strong line up of performers, both professional and celebrity. Each celebrity seemed to flourish under their instructor leading to some truly memorable performances.
    Despite the many setbacks throughout the year, Strictly has provided a beacon of hope and joy for the nation when it was needed the most.
    The journey of Strictly is not just about winning the glitterball. It is about pushing ourselves to do better and grow as a person. It is about beginning at point A and ending up somewhere completely different. Winning is less important than the journey itself.
    Strictly is the best medicine for the nation. It has been likened to everyone's favourite Christmas movie. It doesn't matter how many times you've seen it, it still provides comfort and joy.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘I honestly think that this was one of the best finals ever!' - 3:28

    'If there was ever a show-dance, it was this show-dance. It was a show in itself' - 6:46

    'We literally had the conversation - we're not going to win, but we're so happy we got this far' - 20:00

    'Anyone can enjoy Strictly. It's for everyone' - 23:20

    'If you can't describe it in words then you create it in art' - 40:28

    Strictly Speaking - Semi-Final Review - with Joanne Clifton and Lauren Oakley

    Strictly Speaking - Semi-Final Review - with Joanne Clifton and Lauren Oakley

    We've arrived at the semi-final of the 2020 series of Strictly Come Dancing, and it was all to play for, with just Ranvir, Maisie, Bill and HRVY left in the competition! The weekend saw its share of thrills, and of course, the dreaded elimination...

    Here with Kevin to discuss the highlights, the surprises, and each dance in turn are returning guests, Strictly performer, Joanne Clifton and Burn The Floor star, Lauren Oakley!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    At this late stage in the competition, you can be tempted to play it safe, but the ones who really stand out are the ones who go for it and enjoy the fact that their time is running short.
    There are a certain set of rules for professionals on the series. This can affect the number of specialist moves you can perform in each dance. This practice has evolved over time in order to meet consistency guidelines.
    Faults or flaws in technicalities during a performance affect scores, but this is also a flaw in itself. Technical moves are not the only element that makes a dance unique. You can be technical but still boring.
    The celebrities in this year's series have been incredible, but we should never forget the tireless, peerless work done by this year's pros, who have produced some stunning performances and made this series a real highlight in an otherwise downbeat year.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘I feel like he dances every dance as though it's his last dance and that's why he's so magical to watch' - 5:23

    'His arms bent a little bit but I really don't care because it entertained me' - 13:40

    'There's a lot more ingredients that go into the cake that is a dance' - 14:30

    'I think the pros this year have excelled - clap for the pros?' - 39:10

    Strictly Speaking! Week Seven Review - with Joanne Clifton and Lauren Oakley

    Strictly Speaking! Week Seven Review - with Joanne Clifton and Lauren Oakley

    Week Seven of the 2020 series of Strictly was an especially musical affair... Yes, folks, it was Musicals Week - featuring some of the grandest melodies from popular shows, all set to the most incredible series of dance performances.

    Here with Kevin to discuss the highlights, the surprises, and each dance in turn are returning guests, Strictly performer, Joanne Clifton and Burn The Floor star, Lauren Oakley!

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    The best kinds of dances are ones that remove the element of safety, that dare to experiment, and which have the glamour, fun and excitement that gets people tuning in each week.
    In Musicals Week, we are given a great responsibility - to celebrate the art of the musical itself whilst also attempting to put our own spin on some of the most famous numbers of all time.
    Many viewers receive their dance education regarding ballroom and latin styles from Strictly itself. This has raised the profile of these styles, but it has also provided a slightly uneven education in what these styles actually encompass.
    Props have been an integral part of dance and performance for the longest time. Many associate their use with TV variations, but they have been used for many generations.
    Performance is all about authenticity. Despite what many think, sometimes dancers may employ more natural movements, such as walking, in order to achieve an effect. It's all part of creating the perfect performance.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘I don't have words - it was INCREDIBLE!' - 7:54

    'This number is everything that I want to see in a Strictly Come Dancing number' - 19:39

    'He's just having a great time and giving everything he can!' - 37:15

    'Do you know what it was - she probably fell for the energy that you brought to the show...' - 50:57

    'Dancing is body language' - 1:06:26

    Strictly Speaking! Week Six Review - with Joanne Clifton and Lauren Oakley

    Strictly Speaking! Week Six Review - with Joanne Clifton and Lauren Oakley

    Strictly Come Dancing is back, and Week Six of the 2020 series was a tense affair, especially when it came to the results!

    Here with Kevin to discuss the highlights, the surprises, and each dance in turn are special guests, Strictly performer, Joanne Clifton and Burn The Floor star, Lauren Oakley! Plus, there's some incredible news about Kevin and Joanne's new touring show...

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Strictly is definitely a show that seems to work in many different ways depending on where you are. Audience members experience a very different show to the dancers, who get to see the entire workings. This has never been truer for Kevin since he left the show, and now gets to see both sides.
    The dark horse dancers are the couples who work their way slowly up the leaderboard, improving with each week. It is a great way to dance slowly into the hearts of the audience.
    Voting is incredibly important. If we as fans, want to see our favourites do well, then not actually voting is a mystifying decision to take. We need to get behind the performers we love!
    It is sometimes impossible to leave the scars of a bad week behind. As performers, they must develop the resilience to treat each week as a new opportunity to impress.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘It's genius. It has to be timed exactly!' - 7:55

    'It shows the magic of Strictly - why the nation is hooked. It's definitely the best show on TV' - 13:00

    'Everything can change in the final in terms of who's voting for who' - 38:32

    'He's not afraid to use his knees!' - 1:02:44
