    Finding Your Authenticity that Leads to Your Purpose

    Finding Your Authenticity that Leads to Your Purpose

    You Need to Find Your Authenticity to Find Purpose

    The famous sociologist Erving Goffman in his dramaturgical theory suggested that we are all actors on a stage, and we wear masks so people will perceive us the way we want them to perceive us.



    In today's world and the party that is social media we see more masks as people present themselves behind screens where we often will not see the truth of who they are.



    And if we cannot be true to who we are, that is, be authentic, then how can we truly live our purpose? The answer is we cannot.



    So many of us do not live a life with purpose, much less on purpose. We simply go through life as if it is purposely living from one vacation to the next.



    Isn't it time we lived a life of purpose on purpose? To help us understand how we might do that, we bring in best-selling author Randy Adkins Jr. on this episode of A New Direction. JOIN US Right HERE...and start living your life on purpose.



    Randy Adkins book, "Produce on Purpose: Experience Life Being the Real You" is a spiritual and deep look at how your authenticity leads to your purpose.



    At the end of each chapter Randy asks some deeper questions to help you along the journey to discover who you really are and what you are created to do.



    The big AHA moment is when you realize that you will have a difficulty discovering your purpose if you do not live authentically from your true self.



    The book uses the analogy of going to a masquerade party where we all where masks and Randy helps us to remove them and set us on the path.



    Like so many people in today's society we are not comfortable in our own skin.  And thanks to the like of social media, we feel pressure to be someone else than we truly are.



    Once we live authentically, then pursuing purpose becomes easier, as we are able to look at our God give natural talents, gifts, and abilities that lead to what our mission is and live it intentionally.



    Truly an inspiring book, and one that truly begs the questions, "what is life really about and what is my place in it"?

    We all know marketing is important. But is your marketing positively influencing your profitability?



    Often times in business we just turn things over to a marketing department and we hope for the best.

    Tips and Techniques to Get the Best Out of Your Sales Team

    Tips and Techniques to Get the Best Out of Your Sales Team

    60% of Sales People Never Meet Their Quota...

    The Question is "why" and what Can You as a Sales Manager

    Do about it?

    Well here it is episode 300!

    Wow!  I can't believe we have been doing this show for 6 years.  It has been an awesome time.  And you know what?  I LOVE IT!!!



    So in this 300th episode we talk sales with our friend Steve Weinberg and his latest book.  Join us!



    Did you know that 60% of salespeople never reach their sales quota?



    You may think it's 50/50 but in fact most do not make their sales quota. Why?



    This is the frustration for many CEO's and sales managers. It is the question of how do we improve our salespeople?



    The first look is often and probably should be the sales team manager. They are like a coach of a sports team. They often get too much blame and the eyes of the sale staff, they can get too much credit.



    Okay so what does a great sales manager do to help get their sales to excel?



    Well in this episode of A New Direction Best Selling Author, Veteran Sales Success Expert and Sales Whisperer (I call him that) Steve Weinberg joins us to get us "Above Quota Sales Managment: Tips and Techniques to Get the Best Out of Your Sales Team".



    You will not want to miss Steve's practical insights, from his years of experience and research.



    Steve Weinberg's new book, "Above Quota Sales Managment: Tips and Techniques to Get the Best Out of Your Sales Team" is an absolute must read!



    The book is a culmination of Steve's successful experience as salesperson who has closed over $500 million dollars in sales, and research in the field.



    Above Quota Sales Management is a practical guide and handbook for those who truly want to either change the direction of their sales team or want the best out of them.



    The book dives into areas that typical sales books do not.  Talking about the change in what sales managers do, and how the interact with their salespeople, dealing with the personalities of a buyer, understanding the nature of personal assistants who are protecting the decision makers and more!

    101 Entrepreneur Lessons for Making it Big

    Get 101 Lessons from an Entrepreneur Who Made It Big!

    I think all of us dream of working for ourselves at some point or another. We all like the idea of being an entrepreneur.



    But let's be honest, being an entrepreneur is not easy. In fact it takes a lot of guts, a lot of resilience, sleeplessness nights, and spending a lot of your time alone.



    But one of the ways you can get through it is when you are able to talk with the people who have done it and done it successfully.



    And that is exactly why we bring best-selling author and entrepreneur Larry Gaynor to A New Direction to give us...well...A New Direction when it comes to being an entrepreneur.



    Entrepreneur Larry Gaynor's new book "Take a Chance!  101 Entrepreneurial Lessons for Making it Big" is the perfect book for every entrepreneur regardless of the stage you are in.



    Personally, I love books that have numbered lessons and tips.  Each one makes you think and reflect if you are doing the same thing.



    What makes this entrepreneur book more powerful, it is written by a person who is in the middle of it, had to build it from the ground up, maintain it, and create a legacy from it.



    The book is filled not only with practical and useful tools and tips, but has great stories that help make the lesson really come to life.



    If you are an entrepreneur, or considering becoming one, this book is one that you will want to read, keep on your bookshelf and use it as a refence.

    There are tons of people out there who want to tell you how to build wealth. Some are successful and others...not so much.



    But perhaps one idea of wealth creation has been overlooked by you and others. And that is owning a franchise.



    Look creating your own business can be difficult, but you can still own your own business by investing in a franchise.



    Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to purchase a franchise is how to go about selecting the right one, and asking the right questions.



    In this episode of A New Direction Franchise Expert and Franchise Consultant Gregory Mohr joins us to help us make the best decision when it comes to franchise ownership.



    You may think this may not apply to you...so did I until I read his book, "Real Freedom". A franchise may just be the ticket for building wealth that you have over looked.



    Greg Mohr's book, "Real Freedom: Why Franchises Are Worth Considering and How They Can Be Used for Building Wealth is 101 pages of gaining an introductory and practical understanding of how to find the right franchise for you.



    Real Freedom shares real stories and provides real examples of how people changed their lives buy purchasing a franchise.



    Real Freedom takes a deep dive into understanding the pros and cons of owning a franchise, and the insights into how you can finance and purchase a franchise.



    Greg Mohr's franchise coaching experience is invaluable as you read this book as he is able to help us understand some of the details of franchising that we might otherwise overlook.



    This is a great show and a great information.  If you have ever thought about getting into franchising, and not sure what franchises are available Greg Mohr makes it easy.

    14 Mindsets and Behaviors to Live Your Most Successful Life – Part 2

    14 Mindsets and Behaviors to Live Your Most Successful Life

    We all have different definitions of what a successful life looks like. But there are specific ways of thinking and acting that lead to a more successful life.



    So why do people not make these changes if that means a more successful life is in store?



    It really comes down to one thing...a resistance to change. Sadly we have all developed patterns of thinking, believing, and behaving that even though they may not be good for us...we are reluctant to change.



    In this episode of A New Direction Best-Selling Author Rand Selig joins us again to dig deeper into the changes that we all can make to live our most successful life.



    From his book "Thriving", this is a show that if you will follow Rand's guidance will lead you to the place you dreamed of being.



    Rand Selig's book, "Thriving!: How to Create a Healthier, Happier, and More Prosperous Life" is a complete book into living a truly more successful life.



    Thriving! is in my opinion one of the most comprehensive books on how to live a successful life on the market today.



    The book covers everything from building your character, to improving your relationship with your self to handling aging and death.



    The book also covers how to deal with others, how to manage ourselves and others.  Finding purpose and meaning and so much more!



    If you are ready to live a thriving successful life, then you need a copy of Thriving!

Loved Thriving Interview!

I’m so glad I got to meet you at my Aunt Myrna’s funeral. Obviously, a funeral is a sad time, but her life was filled with friendship and love so I felt enriched by the experience. You are an inspiration and have found the perfect way to follow your purpose! As I make my way on this fabulous journey, I will definitely benefit from this book and your Podcasts. Thank you!
