    In this episode, we respond to those who have asked what our favorite Twins Talk it Up episodes have been so far.

We begin with discussing our sentimental favorite episode; episode 15, entitled 'Wakanda Forever'. Chadwick Boseman was a fellow Howard University Bison and a generational talent.

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 39: Power of Affirmations

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 39: Power of Affirmations

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 39: Power of Affirmations
     
    In this episode, we speak with James and Becky Zheng. James and Becky are transformation coaches & entrepreneurs who help people live a life of design through education, mentorship, and ministry. James also runs The Morning MindSET Podcast where he shares practical wisdom on how to make proper mind shifts, empowering leaders to accomplish more impact and success in their lives. If you can win the morning, you can seize the day.
    Special surprise to learn that Becky is also a twin. We ask them to define what affirmatinos are and how they have used these positive statements to shape their own mindset. This habit or daily ritual also led to James starting the Morning MindSET podcast where he provides daily short positive uplifting messages.
    They talk about the conscious and the subconscious mind and how you can create new beliefs. Creating positive affirmations may be as simple as starting with "I am" statements. Statements such as I am beautiful, I am successful. The key is to connect these statements - these declarations on an emotional level and to say them consistently as if you are already there or that you have already accomplished your goals. The "last 4 letters of the word enthusiasm is iasm which can been seen as I Am Sold Myself."

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 37: Storytelling in Content Marketing

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 37: Storytelling in Content Marketing
     
    In this episode, we speak with Ruthie Bowles of Defy The Status Quo. Defy the Status Quo is a woman, minority and veteran-owned authority marketing consulting firm. As the chief strategist, she focuses on helping organizations create and position their stories to become visible experts in their industries. Did I mention that Ruthie also is a podcaster?
    Ruthie speaks on how storytelling is all about connection and that you should begin with the end goal in mind. Authenticity and trust must be foundational in discovering and developing an effective story. Storytelling can be the secret sauce for attracting the right audience. You won't be the right fit for everyone but you can be the best and right fit for the right audience.
    Is there ever a time you need to rebrand and tell a different story? With a full rebrand, you create an entirely new identity for your business. Ruthie shares when a company should shift and rebrand with a new story. She speaks about conscious consumerism. This is where your target audience puts their loyalty and their money where their hearts are. Your story will keep them 'reading' and will keep them engaged.

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 36: Build your Brand Right

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 36: Build your Brand Right

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 36: Build your Brand Right
     
    In this episode, we meet with our good friend and fellow Howard University Bison Shala Graham. Shala is a brand strategist, speaker and writer. Shala shares about the importance of having a solid and effective brand. Your brand is your reputation. You have to be aware of your target audience and then manage that reputation while building upon your brand values. Your Brand is the foundation of your marketing.
    Think about the most valued brands in the world and what makes them so effective. Brands like Google, Amazon and Apple are extremely successful as they know their audience and they stay true to the areas/niches that they specialize in. This allows them to be the right fit and the right solution. Do you know who your audience is and are you firm in your niche? You may not be the right solution for everybody; but for somebody, you are the perfect solution.
    Shala poses the question of what makes your organization different. Volvo is extremely different than other manufacturers such as Subaru or Honda in the minds of potential buyers and yet they are all cars.
    Branding changes should only happen when values change and when those you are trying to serve (your audience) change. Remember that it could take years and decades to build a brand - build a company's reputation and yet it can really take just one bad mistake or one instant to tarnish or destroy it. Authentic branding is about trust and your target audience needs to trust you and your organization.

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 35: Directing the Airways

    Twins Talk it Up Episode 35: Directing the Airways
     
    In this episode of Twins Talk it Up, we speak with Katlyn Lovelady. Katlyn is an air traffic controller and also serves in the Air National Guard. 
    Communication skills are vital in the air space. Clarity of speech between Ground Control, the Tower and Aircraft is vital to ensure safety for both crew and the passengers they serve. Regarding intentional listening, Katlyn shared some incredible insight about being able to listen to the silence - that what is not being said can be just as important as what is being said. Having a calm and confident tone also is crucial to the overall success of the mission.
    As a leader, never let your ego get in the way of the goal. Lives are at stake. While others may only see 'their part', you as the leader must keep your focus on the big picture and communicate the plan. "They want to the plan to succeed as much as you do". Give everyone an opportunity to excel in their role and surprise you.
    Here are the 3 leadership lessons Katlyn said that she has learned through being an air traffic controller:
    1. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
    2. If you wouldn't want what you said "played back", then don't say it.
    3. Tell the team your plan.
    Love Katlyn's confidence and the pride she has with being one of the few women in this role. You can do "hard things."

Dave and Danny squeeze so much value out of their guests. Every question they ask is targeted and something I want to know as I listen.
