    Ep: 209 Paul N Larsen

    From flipping hamburgers on Main Street to leading HR for Wall Street, Paul has continually reinvented his distinctive voice to thrive within the craziness of our ever-chaotic world.
    As an Impostor Syndrome survivor,  Paul has learned to tame his fake and fraud voice and has successfully coached hundreds of leaders and teams to celebrate their Impostor and find their voice of confidence so that they share their inspiration with others.
    His practical, and sometimes laughable, life experiences led him to author the award-winning coaching book, “Find Your VOICE as a Leader”™ (2016, Aviva Publishing).
    Paul’s coaching portfolio includes working with the talented global teams and leaders at Twitter, Microsoft, Electronic Arts, SAP and Cisco along with many successful life entrepreneurs looking to make their mark on our world. 
    A certified Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Center Coach, a contributing author with Forbes Coaches Council, and the Founder of the Find Your V.O.I.C.E. as a Leader™ Institute, he offers transformative coaching journeys to find & use your distinctive voice of strength to be your best self.
     
    Introducing Paul N Larsen
    What problem do you solve? He is going to help people celebrate their imposter syndrome so they can thrive with it and not just survive. What three questions are you going to answer for us today? What is impostor syndrome? How do I know when I'm experiencing impostor syndrome versus just having a bad day? What are the steps I can do to integrate it, celebrate it, and overcome it? What can I do that's easy? Show Notes:
    An easy way to think of impostor syndrome is that it's when we think we have to be somebody else to be successful. You can be a very confident impostor. It's what is happening inside us in our mind that says, "No, you have to be somebody else in order to be successful." The pandemic has offered us an opportunity to open our mind and ask what are we thinking in here? We are so choosy. We let any thought in. The average adult can process more than 12,000 thoughts a day. If we let thoughts nest, they fester. Thoughts have a negativity bias and often come from the day before. We experience impostor syndrome when we have feelings that we're kind of a fake and a fraud in what we're doing. 90% of successful professionals have experienced impostor syndrome at least once in their life. New experiences can make you feel like you're faking it. We feel like we'll be "found out" and someone will say they realize we don't know what we're doing and we must leave. Realize that you are not a fake or a fraud. You have FEELINGS that you are. At the heart of hearts, impostor syndrome is trying to protect us from messing up (if we mess up we can learn). It's a part of me, so I'm gonna make it work for me. Celebrate the voice and realize it means you have room for growth. Take baby steps to help dilute the voice. Recognize impostor syndrome for what it is. Recognize the value of who you are. Stop and take a breath. If I can do it, then anyone can. Paul N Larsen's Recharge Round
    What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Paul's biggest habit was finding his voice. He then discovered his values, established his outcomes, demonstrated his influence to himself, revealed his courage, and created a lasting expression. If you had one do-over, what would it be? He would spend more time with the people that really matter. Connect with Paul:

    Introducing Jennifer Shaheen
    What problem do you solve? I solve the problem of understanding where to start and what to use when it comes to digital technology. What three questions are you going to answer for us today? What platforms should we be or should not be using in digital marketing? What are some tips for each of the marketing channels? Where does data play into things when it comes to marketing? Show Notes:
    People are trying to do everything, but we can't do everything. We don't have enough people and resources.  Business owners want to do more than they're doing. What channels are working for my business and what aren't and why? You don't have to be on everything. You should create an account on everything and protect the platforms, though. If someone asks about you on one platform, you can redirect them to another. There's nothing wrong with setting up a platform and not using it. What platforms are growing for your audience? What is the path for your business? Social platforms are great for discovery and search platforms are great for seeking. Know how to nurture both types of clients. People don't go from discovery to purchase. There is not a straight path unless there is a sense of urgency. Ask yourself, "I have this kind of business, what are the steps in consideration to purchase?" Build that into your marketing. Do you look at all your analytical data together? Don't look at your data in silos. If you look at it together, you can better understand your customer. Use Google's data studio. Bring your data from many platforms into a central system. Organic marketing takes time because you're dealing with algorithms. Organic doesn't give you insights the same way because Google doesn't share with you what key words people use to find you. Work smarter, not harder. Spend a little money on digital advertising because it'll give you data insights you won't get organically. Reflection is extremely important. What's working for you? Set a goal for moving one of them (not all) forward a certain percentage. Jennifer Shaheen's Recharge Round
    What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Jennifer had to learn how to create habits because she was a little too scattered in her life. If you had one do-over, what would it be? Jennifer wishes she had created better systems earlier on. She has a lot in her head and she needs to systematize it and get it out. Connect with Jennifer:

    Ep: 207 Jeremy Brown

    Beginning his entrepreneurial journey at age 19, Jeremy used his free time to interview hundreds of successful people across the country, learning from their expertise and acting on their advice.  As Jeremy's business development and sales expertise grew, he decided to write his first book in order to establish authority, generate leads, and increase his credibility.  The result?  His business exploded and Jeremy knew he had found his calling - empowering leaders to share their stories.
    Introducing Jeremy Brown
    What problem do you solve? I help people go from an idea in their head to a book in their hand. What three questions are you going to answer for us today? How important is your top goal? Your life is telling a story. What's that story telling? What questions are still in your mind from 2021 that you need to eliminate? Show Notes:
    How important is this to you? It's okay if it's not important. You need to identify that. It's not what can I do but what do I want to do. Your priorities may shift for a year, a season, or even a day. How we tell a story determines how we approach it and attempt to solve it. Stories often start with a loss or a leap. You want to know your story because it can help you connect with others. If we leave questions floating around in our mind and don't answer them, they can cause confusion and a lack of clarity. A lot of people struggle with their purpose. Decide: Am I going to answer this right now? Am I going to come to a conclusion soon? Or will I put it aside and answer it later? What's underneath this that's not letting me coming to a conclusion? Faith is a substance. It's a real, actual thing. If you listen to people well, they will tell you their story and discover their reason themselves. Jeremy Brown's Recharge Round
    What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Jeremy's habit is having a written habit that he keeps in his pocket. If you had one do-over, what would it be? He would put himself around the right people sooner. Getting yourself around the right people will make a big difference in your life. Connect with Jeremy:

    Ep: 205 Richard Flint

    Ep: 205 Richard Flint

    For over 30 years, Richard Flint has been speaking and changing lives. Richards' has a passion for helping anyone who is tired of wandering through life and feels like they are lacking the clear understanding of what it takes to rise above normal and achieve a life of accomplishment, freedom, success, and a personal wealth of knowledge that will serve them for the rest of their lives.
    Richard is the author of 19 books and numerous webinar programs. He is also the host of his own podcast - Let’s Talk Human Behavior.
    Show Notes:
    Richard was prepared to be a person of presence and of value. He has a list of 16 laws that hold his life together. One of these is to never stay anywhere where his presence isn't appreciated. Richard has traveled and shared his research for the past 32 years. He calls it his crusade, and not his mission, because a crusade is where you go and make an impact. Life is continual education. You have to look for the opportunities and the moments that challenge you. Most people live from the outside in. In most audiences, they don't want to improve, they want an excuse. Richard created his own definition of stress that says that stress is anything in life that makes you uptight. Routines make us feel safe and comfortable but can also be traps. People who work to eliminate stress create stress. People who try to control stress make it their friend. Are you moving faster than you can manage? Slowing down for most people is a real challenge. You have to build your life on a foundation of trust in yourself. You can handle change and turn it into improvement if you bring 3 A's to your life: Adapt Adjust Align yourself Behavior never lies. The essence of truth is not what you talk about, but it is what you do. We have to be honest about our behavior. Most people want honesty as long as it's not honest. Richard has four important guiding questions: What do I really want? Why do I really want this? What price am I willing to pay to have it? What behaviors will I have to improve to get there? You can't just sit down and write a goal. Use Richard's four questions to clarify what you want with life. Writing a goal does not create direction, Richard's number one philosophy says "Why spend energy being a carbon copy when you're an original." He wants to have a positive presence that is present when he's not present. Clutter is the number 1 dysfunctional behavior in human life. Clutter is anything that holds you as a hostage to yourself. You can't improve in chaos. Richard Flint's Recharge Round
    What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Richard Flint is disciplined. What's the simple positive action that you take each day to move forward to achieve your goals? He doesn't do a to-do list he does an achievement list. What's your biggest life lesson and what have you learned from it? He is an original and he is perfectly designed to achieve what he needs to achieve. Connect with Richard:

    Ep: 204 Yinka Adegbenle

    Ep: 204 Yinka Adegbenle

    Adeyinka (Yinka) Adegbenle MBA, PMI-PMP is a former financial services professional turned Author | Excellence Strategist and Excellence Coach.
    Her goal and life’s purpose is to equip leaders with transformational
    habits and systems of excellence. Yinka believes that excellence is choosing to rise above average or mediocrity. A person or organization will start to see measurable improvements and results, once a concrete decision is made to rise above being average. She has helped many to obtain outstanding measurable results through teaching and equipping them with dynamic habits and systems of excellence.
    Show Notes:
    Yinka had a perspective change when her doctor told her that whatever it is that she was doing, she needed to stop because he'd be worried for her health. She thought to herself that she needs to do the best she can in the areas she has control in. Yinka helps others through the principal systems of excellence. She wants to help others with roadblocks so that they can get the momentum to change their lives for the better. We're all people of excellence. As a leader, you should be skilled at what you do. Know your worth. Do your best and keep learning. Influence carries a lot of responsibilities. Leaders should be accountable. Leaders should have steady, controlled emotions. A leader should know their emotional stance and know their triggers. Leaders should be vulnerable. Habits make up our belief system and are shown in how we live life daily. Having the right values and actions is an essential base. Words have power. You can't use them recklessly. The words we use create our world, and we can build up or tear down with them. To operate at an optimal level, you have to keep growing. Yinka has to keep learning until the day she dies. Yinka Adegbenle's Recharge Round
    What habit do you think has led to success in your life? Yinka plans her day, her week, her month, and her year. She makes goals because her well-planned weeks are her most productive ones. What's the simple positive action that you take each day to move forward to achieve your goals? She exercises and gets outside. What's your biggest life lesson and what have you learned from it? Excellence attracts excellence. When you strive for it in all you do, inevitably you get that back. Connect with Yinka:
