Imagine how your life would be transformed if you could get 1% better every day. Every week since 2017, your host Joe Ferraro (@FerraroOnAir) releases a new episode designed to help you improve your mindset, language, and behavior.
A Conversation Killer: Diminishing Language
Human beings regularly speak 15,000 words a day.
This reality makes it impossible to communicate perfectly.
Luckily, perfection isn't the goal, connection is.
This week I invite you to eliminate an entire category of language: diminishing language.
Take the compliment. Say thank you. Tell someone: "I made this for you."
Watch your conversations bloom and your connections deepen.

Getting More Than 1 Percent Better
Joe Ferraro does an outstanding job over delivering value in every episode. I’m so impressed with his style and how he seamlessly weaves in substantive points in every episode. So many podcasts try to dazzle you with their superior verbal footwork or how knowledgeable the host is. Joe shows his superiority in a conversational, welcoming and warm style. You can’t help but learn something that makes you more than 1 percent better in every episode.
Honestly Great Conversations
I love the variety, the mission and the simple art of great conversation. I’m excited to dig back into more of the older episodes!
