    WHY Do You Do What You Do...the Way You Do It?

    WHY Do You Do What You Do...the Way You Do It?

    WHY Do You Do What You Do...the Way You Do It?

    After a decade spent riding high (yet occasionally being a Crash Test Dummy) in the radio industry, I finally made a decision that changed my life forever...but I chose to swing a wrecking ball through it first.


    It's not always easy to dig deep to find our WHY, but it can be worth it.

    How Do You Treat YOUR Fans?

    How Do You Treat YOUR Fans?

    How Do You Treat YOUR Fans?

    You have fans.
    Do you realize that?

    Whatever you do for a living...there is someone out there who admires you, cheers you on, and enjoys how YOU make THEM feel.

    So, the question: How do YOU treat these people?

    we've all seen examples of people who seem to have it all...yet treat people around them like crap...as if they forgot what it meant to be that fan in the stands. 

    How are YOU treating YOUR FANS?

    What do you do, and what does it mean, when there is a new awareness of the impact of the words we use and actions we take? I’m not going to lie, 2020 has been a struggle for me in many ways. In this episode, I invited my friend Sejal, an attorney who specializes in workplace environment, bullying, harassment, unconscious bias and more...to discuss how we can all be more aware.

    Sejal is known professionally as Chief Civility Officer and Legal Training Ninja. 

    She is an employment law practitioner with over fifteen years of employment law experience that includes advising clients, human resources personnel, and legal counsel regarding sound, standard employment practices.  She conducts investigations regarding harassment, discrimination, bullying, retaliation, misconduct and other topics.

    Steve Gamlin: Conversation With Nate Peo  

    The Power of Visualization...  

    Steve Gamlin and Nate Peo both learned about Visualization and the Law of Attraction from "The Secret" nearly 2 decades ago...and are both still using them to enhance the experiences (and results)  of their clients.   

    In addition to being a Residential construction professional, Nate Peo serves as VP of Purchasing and Construction for a successful California-based real estate company.   

    Nate holds an M.B.A. in Business Administration from Pepperdine University and a B.S. in Construction Management from the University of Nebraska.   

    In his personal life, he is a proud dad, loving husband and motivated fitness enthusiast.  Nate welcomes opportunities to step out of his comfort zone and emerge better for it. 

    In addition, Nate candidly invites listeners to do the same through his inspirational podcast, All-In, where he presents authentic experiences from his own life along with thought-provoking, yet practical advice. 

    A self-described “super connector,” he is passionate about bringing people together in mutually successful ways.

    We hope you enjoy our conversation!

    If You're Feeling Lost, Play Marco Polo (With Summer)!

    If You're Feeling Lost, Play Marco Polo (With Summer)!

    So much can go wrong...and cause us to give up.

    Today, it nearly DID.

    But, what if...the NEXT TIME something goes wrong, you KEPT ON TRYING, made adjustments on the fly, stayed in contact with the people you're trying to find in the Digital Forest?

    What if you kept playing "Instant Message Marco Polo" until you found the other person?

    A great big THANK YOU to KORE Women Podcast host Summer Watson for holding down the fort until I arrived...10 minutes into the show as I frantically rearranged my recording studio to switch from 'laptop, camera, lights and microphone' to 'phone/other lights' as I yelled (to myself, until I got connected) "I'm on my way!! I'm on my way!!" ;)

    You see, I had missed one simple (yet very important) message in her show instructions.

    We *could have* bailed.

    But she didn't...and she wouldn't let ME either.

    And if we had, I would have missed out on one of the most JOYFUL experiences of my week!

    A message from Summer, after the show:

    What a terrific interview!!! If anyone missed it, it can be watched at: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CDRZbILJKJx/?igshid=vv22bh6w4svc&fbclid=IwAR0cn-y9TSKcDTykZUpZ6BN8TBAsW-41tMp8x7G9c43W2BVCxEG_-MA6EeE

    What would you do...if you were ‘this’ close to realizing your professional dream.

That’s what today’s guest experienced. Hear how she not only survived, but once again thrived. 

    Special Guest Debra Russell shares her story of how she went from the height of achievement...to Rock Bottom...almost instantly.

    The best part: SHE FOUGHT BACK and set herself on a path that continues to inspire her (and her clients) today.
