    Three Entrepreneurs Who Have Influenced Me

    Three Entrepreneurs Who Have Influenced Me

    In the last episode of The Jody Maberry Show, Dr. Mike Goldsby joined me to talk about entrepreneurship the Disney Way.
     
    Dr. Goldsby returns to ask me three follow up questions to our conversation. In response, we are discussing three entrepreneurs who have influenced/impacted me over the years. Second, we take a look at my time as a park ranger. How did my experience and the skillset I learned prepare me for what I am doing now? Lastly, we are examining the areas of challenge and the opportunities for innovation in education as we move forward.
     
    These three topics share the bottom line that leaders learn from the inputs around them – whether observation, experience, or the chance for innovation. Leaders keep moving.

    Entrepreneurship the Disney Way

    Entrepreneurship the Disney Way

    Today, Dr. Mike Goldsby, Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship at Ball State University and author of Entrepreneurship the Disney Way is with me. Dr. Goldsby has been teaching for 20 years and is sharing some valuable lessons about entrepreneurship, especially as seen in the life and career of Walt Disney.
     
    Entrepreneurship is about being creative and it is all about opportunity. Walt Disney balanced creativity and business. He was a dreamer who knew how to be open to his circumstance and how to capitalize on his unique situation. As entrepreneurs, we can learn a couple of lessons from him in this area. First, be willing to take time and shape your ideas – learn and take input. Second, as a dreamer/visionary, surround yourself with implementors.
     
    Understand yourself and what you stand for. Know yourself well enough to know when an opportunity isn’t for you. When you know what gives you energy and what takes it away, you can be patient enough to wait and find the opportunities that are good for you and those connected to you.

    The Five New Things I Tell Myself Every Day

    The Five New Things I Tell Myself Every Day

    Jeff Noel is with me again today to continue our discussion and introduce the five new things that I am telling myself every day in 2020. Last time, we laid to rest sayings and questions that I have used daily for years. Entering 2020, I wanted to think differently about the year.
     
    Today we are examining my daily exercise and meditations on excellence, gratitude, thankfulness, appreciation, and ownership.
     
    By defining what excellence is in the short term, we know how the whole of a project or situation will play out. By allowing ourselves to embrace enough and be thankful, we can experience the fullness of life. Through understanding our follow-through is not dependent on other’s feedback, we can overcome discouragement, which can allow us to appreciate what we encounter, rather than set ourselves up for unmet expectations. Lastly, by embracing ownership, we remove the limit of waiting for someone else to fix something or make a change. Even amid failure, we can move forward and do better. As Jeff likes to say, be amazed and be amazing.

    Gaining an Advantage by What You Tell Yourself

    Gaining an Advantage by What You Tell Yourself

    Jeff Noel returns today to join me as I lay to rest my five daily sayings. Every day, there are five sayings/questions that I meditate on to help me create a successful frame of mind. When we want to do what we have never done, we must think differently than we have. So, in preparation for stepping into a new season, I want to visit these sayings for a final review.
     
    Jeff and I discuss the concept of ‘rest being a weapon’ and the advantage it gives you over any adversary. We examine the benefit of asking ‘what does this make possible’ when you suffer loss. We look at the pro’s and con’s of ‘do the one thing’. We also consider what it means to ask yourself ‘what is it for’ as a means of keeping yourself on mission. Lastly, we unpack the benefit of reminding yourself to ‘do your best and forgive yourself’.
     
    Words are very powerful. A slight change to a word can affect the whole manner with which we approach something. In the next episode, I will share what 5 new things I will be saying to myself every day.

    Behind the Scenes of Dealing With a Crisis

    Behind the Scenes of Dealing With a Crisis

    While Dan Cockerell and I were in Orlando for the annual Magical Vacation Planner Conference, most travel-related businesses began closing in response to Covid-19. 
    In the midst of the commotion and confusion, Dan and I along with Lee Cockerell to record an episode about how to deal with a crisis.
    In addition to the interview with Lee and Dan, this episode will give some behind the scenes information about dealing with the crisis as it unfolded. 
    Here are four steps to keep in mind while dealing with a crisis:
    Safety First. Before anything else, the safety of employees, customers, and yourself comes before anything else.
    Deal with the Facts. During a crisis people get emotional. People speculate and gossip. You should deal only with the facts when you communicate with people.
    Be Empathetic. Everybody is dealing with a crisis in different ways for different reasons. Understand people are worried.
    Use the situation to get better. You and your organization can learn plenty from a crisis. Use it as a training opportunity.
    During a crisis, your culture is on show for everyone to see. Your actions should match your words. What you say doesn’t build a culture. Culture is built through actions.

Encouraging, Inspiring, Educational

I love Jody's perspective on life and business. He will not only help you develop better business skills in creating a podcast ... he will also help you become a more generous and impactful person. Highly recommended!

Incredible material

I first became aware of Jody because he is the co-host of Lee Cockerell’s podcast, “Creating Magic.” Through that, I learned we’re from the same area and have several mutual friends. After finishing those 250+ programs, I’ve since begun getting caught up Jody’s own podcasts. He presents invaluable material in a casual and friendly manner. There hasn’t been a program of his in which I’ve not learned something that I can apply to my situation. Looking forward to more inspiration! Thanks!

Outstanding "Down to Earth" advice!

Jody's podcasts are always informative, useful and fun! Jody has so many interesting guests and hearing their ideas is always worth the time. Jody's style is refreshingly "personal" and listening to his podcasts seems more like "catching up" with a good friend. Have a listen; it will be well worth your time!
