    Understanding Your Role with Jon Gordon

    In today’s episode, I’m joined by my friend, Jon Gordon. Jon is an author and public speaker perhaps most well known for his words regarding positivity and leadership. We chat about the practical integration of faith and positivity, the importance of difficult conversations, and the power of metaphors in communication. Jon shares his model for having difficult conversations, which includes focusing on the mission, telling the truth, assuming positive intent, maintaining respect, and establishing rules of engagement. He also emphasizes the need to understand one's role in a conversation and to approach it with intention and a desire for unity. Listen in with me and let’s learn a thing or two.

    Lighting the Silent Path with McKinnon Galloway

    Lighting the Silent Path with McKinnon Galloway

    Bob stumbled upon McKinnon Galloway through social media, where she teaches basic sign language. As a teenager, she was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2), a rare and incurable genetic disorder that causes tumors to grow on nerves throughout the body, leading to her deafness. McKinnon has a beautiful ambition of bridging the gap between the hearing and deaf communities, which led her to start the Deaf District—a community where deaf or hard of hearing individuals can find resources, support, and a sense of belonging. Join us for an inspiring conversation about the challenges she has faced, the importance of surrounding oneself with supportive people, and the power of words.

Wow! Finally a spot to find nourishment for my soul!! Thank you for Episode 134 , with Carey (I believe was his name) . I am about to walk out the door to meet a potential client. I have tried more times than I care to admit to start my design business. Everytime something has happened. I essentially gave up. This along with many other events that happen in everyone’s life… I have become cynical & even bitter at times. I got to the point where home was the only place I wanted to be. I isolated and was battling this decision to go to this appointment but I have to try. Yes, it’s not worked out before many times. But this one episode has given me the boost I needed to go with attitude of hope. So thank you both!
