#14: (Season Finale) Pillars of a Healthy World
We went all over the globe, became artisans, artists, race car drivers, checked our anxiety at the door, and traveled in time to relive and recount profound moments. This season took us everywhere and made us feel every emotion anew again.
And the same way we began this season coming together on a trip to Thailand for a destination wedding, we end this season with a trip to different destinations of time and places. We get handed bus passes to Jay's journals to listen to stories of philanthropy small and big, from making friends with the friendless to teaching kids to surf 10,000 miles away from home, and grieving the birth of 26 angels.
No angles here, just real stories in going the extra mile to reach out and give back. After all, we are all on this delicate rock together.
Thank you for an amazing season, and we look forward to the next season.

#13: Good Gone Viral
During these times, there’s a natural inclination to look inward and focus on protecting one’s self. After all, we’re taught to put the oxygen mask on ourselves before helping others. Yet as we distance ourselves from one another, it’s important to realize that we are now more connected than ever… and there is strength in numbers.
As we work to do what’s best for ourselves, our families, and our friends, let’s also do our best to focus the lens outward. When you’re unable to dine at your favorite restaurant, what happens to that business owner and their staff? When you cancel your group fitness class, what happens to that instructor’s income? If you’re able, maybe pay for that scheduled appointment that got cancelled. Or...if possible, take care of your landlord sooner knowing he/she may not be able to collect payment from others...it’s all a domino effect.
If we all zoom out for a second, we may be able to self-audit our resources and perhaps realize we have enough. Maybe even enough to notice we might have the power to help someone else in need. Sure, it might be scary. But I can promise you, it’ll be worth it. No one ever went broke from giving.
Jay, Jeff, and the Client Giant family are committed to doing what we can to go outside the scope of what’s expected. If you, a family member, a friend, or a distant acquaintance are going through a dire time right now, we want to know. Maybe we can help.
Please email us the details at email@example.com and we will be spending this week doing what we do best in trying to help. Stay healthy, stay safe. This too shall pass.
#12: 4 Weddings and Your Funeral
On today's episode, Jay grabs the verbal chef knife and puts branded gifts on the chopping block. We take a dash of sarcasm, a pinch of wit, and throw it all in the pot set to high. This episode puts the purity of your branded gifts on the grill
Let's see how well they cook and ask if anyone wants a dish of your name on their plate.

#11: John Williams, Seth Godin, and a Homeless Man
Ah. The good old days when you could just walk into a Blockbuster Video, grab the hottest Jim Carrey movie on VHS, pick up some popcorn, and graduate with a degree in marketing techniques that are 20 years ahead of their time. No, this isn't fiction and these things don't only happen in the movies.
On today's episode, Jeff gives us a table read of the masterclass that was put on by an unexpected source as he was walking into a Blockbuster Video. Ingredients contain a dash of nostalgia to test your memory and your ears so put your learning cap on! Take notes from this charming lesson in marketing that sticks.
#10: The Most Expensive Pot Pie I've Ever Had
Just as creating massive craters can be done with small rocks, changing the world can be done by holding the door for someone, or paying for the drinks for the people behind you at the drive-thru. The effect of good deeds doesn't stop at your participation, their intention and will carries to the next like a good vibe virus. Everyone wants to feel good, special, and when anyone shares their good deed, we want to share that currency with everyone. It's the simple nature of human reciprocity.
On today's episode, Jay shares the smallest gesture someone gave him that still has him talking 13 years later.
Grab your forks and pot pie, and hop aboard. We're going up.
#9: Everyone is Pregnant!
On today's episode of The Lift, Jeff Jackel gives us the run down on how everyone seemingly becoming pregnant was the ticket to teaching empathy, and utilizing this strange phenomena to connect with people.
Grab a drink and some popcorn and up the dial, this episode will have you seeing things differently in the span of 15 minutes. (Literally)
I’m “lifted.” Different and refreshing
I Had to listen to all episodes before I gave my review. Just finished.
I grew up with Jeff. Quite the unique soul. My assumption was that this podcast would provide great value and entertainment- My assumption was correct.
The Lift is an excellent podcast. I listen to quite a few podcasts, and sometimes it’s hard to find new content. I’ve learned and laughed a lot from The Lift. I’m already applying some of their wisdom to my own business (Real Estate Sales)
Give it a try. You won’t regret it.
Entertaining and Practical
This podcast is extremely well produced and entertaining, while also providing practical advice to help your business and personal life.
Love The Lift!
Absolutely love the way this podcast is produced! So well done!! Sit back and enjoy the masterful storytelling by Jay and Jeff. Just one more reason to love these guys and what they do!
