Not only is today Thanksgiving Eve -- it's time to prep those stretch pants for turkey, stuffing, and pie, y'all -- it's also one of the busiest travel days of the entire year. I'll admit I'm pretty lucky, as my days of dashing through airports, racing to make trains, and wallowing in holiday traffic are behind me since I moved closer to home about 10 years ago. But that doesn't mean I want to leave you brave Turkey Day Road Warriors without inspiration as you chart your own journey home toward family, friends, loved ones, and tryptophan. To help you on your way, here are nine addictive podcast episodes across a wide range of topics: productivity, storytelling, leadership, UX, when life falls apart, time management, and everything in between.
Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Retired (RET) Chris Hockenberry took command of the 1st Battalion, 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment on a beautiful fall day in 2012. Captain (CPT) Caleb Ling and I (then CPT Duprey) stood in front of our companies on Pike Field. Our troopers had their M4s and fixed bayonets, and we were doing the All-American parade thing.
We all have those moments in our life when something big happens and we just freeze. They're unexpected; unplanned. When those situations arise, there are two ways to handle them: Freak the hell out or calmly look at options to solve it. In this week's episode, we talk about how to handle life's unplanned events and what you can do to better solve for them. We also share some pretty personal stories.
Working in male-dominated industries can present its fair share of challenges; Some real and some percieved. In this week's episode, we invited Deana Poole, a sports radio saleswoman from Philly to join us and share her challenges and more importantly her advice for being successful in your career. In what is, honestly, my favorite MarketHer episode so far, Brie, Angela and I had an open, transparent, and truly inspirational conversation with Deana on her path to success in sports radio, what she learned as she navigated her career, and how each of us can keep our eyes on the horizon of our own growth! This is really a DON'T-MISS episode!
What are the best inbound marketers doing to get great results from their campaigns? That is the question that I set out to answer each week here on The Inbound Success Podcast, and now that I have published the first ten episodes, I wanted to take some time to distill the lessons learned from those interviews. Ten episodes might not sound like much, but the people that I spoke to are some of the most impressive and accomplished marketers I know, so there's a lot to digest. I've boiled it all down into 14 lessons that you can begin to apply right now to improve the results you're getting from your marketing. Some of these are just good reminders to follow the inbound methodology, and others showcase why its so important to think outside of the box when it comes to inbound marketing.
In case you haven't already heard, LuLaRoe, a multi-level marketing (MLM) company that provides wholesale inventory to its retailers in the form of leggings and family fashion, is being sued. Having all stood in the role of an entrepreneur, Brie, Britt, and I all have valuable and differing insights on how to protect yourself as you begin a new business venture.
Do your employees know how you figured out their salaries? Do they see their future at your company? Do you know how to show them it? Unfortunately, many leaders who have the desire to answer these questions will ultimately answer no.They may say that market research was done and a negotiation took place, but when you dig deeper, most leaders can’t find the language or tools to answer these questions.
Walk like a boss. Talk like a boss. Inspire like a Girlboss. Both inside and outside the business world, society seems enamored with the idea of being a “boss” and all that comes with it. Perhaps it’s the perception of ownership, accomplishment, or autonomy; of corner offices and big paychecks. Being a boss, however, isn’t always as glamorous or carefree as it looks from a distance (or on Mad Men, for that matter).
