    Reframe Your Thinking to Find Big Opportunities with Eli Harris

    Reframe Your Thinking to Find Big Opportunities with Eli Harris

    Here's the real deal, the past two years have been filled with unexpected challenges and obstacles. For some it led to exponential growth, and for others it meant having the rug pulled out from underneath them. In these situations what has always inspired me are people that even against the odds find new opportunities to pursue. People that create opportunities where they didn't exist before. Today's guest is no exception to that. Eli Harris may be young, but his vision and experience is wise beyond his years. As the Co-Founder and President of R-Zero, Eli is looking to totally disrupt the disinfection industry, lead the way in the new field of bio-safety, and change a field that on one hand has experienced massive change, yet on the other hasn't seen innovation in years. Listen in as we talk about how to reframe your thinking, view legacy industries and pursue a massive vision.

    Your Attachment to the Wrong Emotions Is Stifling Your Success

    Your Attachment to the Wrong Emotions Is Stifling Your Success

    It's easier to be attached to the things we know, even when they aren't good for us than to deal with the fear and discomfort of the unknown. At least it used to be for me. In this episode, I share my experience about being attached to the wrong emotions, the ones that weren't serving me because I could anticipate them. And, it's when I broke free from those emotions, or the attachment to what I know, that I began to experience tremendous success in work and life. In fact, everything started to really fall into place when I changed this part of my life. I hope when you listen to this episode, you'll also realize a few negative or toxic emotional attachments that aren't serving you.

In this episode customer experience guru, Shep Hyken, gives us some real-world stories and tools to keep our customers coming back for more. As a reminder, you may have customers, clients, members or even internal customers inside your organization. No matter where you are coming from, this episode will help you think differently about your customer experience.
