    #21: Kirk Thompson Part II - Common Language Shapes Stronger More Vibrant Communities & Economies

    In part two of my conversation with Kirk Thompson we shift away from his personal development story to focus on development opportunities in his community. He imagines how a common framework and language like V-REEL® might contribute to the formation of unified vision and re-development plans in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands in the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Maria. https://archive.org/download/KirkPodcast2/Kirk%20podcast%202.mp3

    #20: Kirk Thompson, Part 1 - V-REEL® Yourself to See and Build Personal Value

    This episode is about one person's effort to build a career and a life with intention. I talked to Kirk about how he made career choices, how he responded to inevitable changes, and what grounds him as he figures out the path forward after Hurricanes Irma and Maria virtually destroyed his home and his business in 2017. I, of course, put it all in the context of the V-REEL® Framework in hopes that it might help you organize your own thinking toward a long, rich, resilient value-creating career and life. https://archive.org/download/KirkPodcast/Kirk%20Podcast.mp3

    #18: Mark and Bethany Douglass Part II—V-REEL for the Whole Family

    #18: Mark and Bethany Douglass Part II—V-REEL for the Whole Family

    In Part II of my conversation with Mark and Bethany Douglass, we talk about how the L in V-REEL, Longevity, helps them carry out their family mission statement— training their children in an atmosphere that seeks creativity, education, and fosters the entrepreneurial spirit in their kids.  Bethany is quick to point out that as a family, they apply V-REEL to more than business/financial decisions. It also works with abstract and emotional goals and helps the kids better understand who they are. Both creative thinkers, Mark as an executive with Fidelis Creative Agency, and Bethany as a popular lifestyle blogger, this couple has a lot to teach all of us about strategy for business and for life. https://archive.org/download/MarkBethanyPart2/Mark%20%26%20Bethany%20Part.mp3

    #17: Mark and Bethany Douglas Part I—Building a Family’s Future Using V-REEL

    #17: Mark and Bethany Douglas Part I—Building a Family’s Future Using V-REEL

    While the V of V-REEL stands for Value, after visiting with Mark and Bethany Douglas, I’m thinking of another v word: versatility. The way Mark and Bethany are applying V-REEL is very versatile and, honestly, they surprised me. Mark and Bethany are both entrepreneurs and have used the V-REEL framework in their businesses for a while now. Mark’s business, Fidelis Creative Agency, helps businesses look, sound, and perform better. They handle digital services, websites, media, and are expanding into digital marketing. Bethany’s business, Cloistered Away, is a lifestyle blog that is focused on simple, purposeful family living where she writes about keeping a simple lifestyle, recipes, resources for homeschoolers, and offers encouragement for parents. But here’s the surprising part: Mark and Bethany shared V-REEL with their kids last year while driving around in their suburban on vacation. Now they’re using it together as a family to implement their strategic thinking at home. Listen in to Part I of my conversation with Mark and Bethany for some really strategic thinking and inventive application of the V-REEL framework. https://archive.org/download/MarkBethanyPart1/Mark%20%26%20Bethany%20part%201.mp3

Great podcast host!

Great podcast host! Terrific interviewer who ensures that those being interviewed look good, as opposed to trying to shine the spotlight on themselves. Prepared well for the interview with me and as a result, the conversation was smooth and flowing. Highly recommended!
