Scott Armstrong: Performance Pivots

Jul 14, 2018 01:03:00

Description:

Scott Armstrong joins host Denise Griffitts to discuss performance pivots which can lead to limitless performance. The whole Limitless concept started with Scott Armstrong playing with animals over 30 years ago. Sitting at a soulless desk as a corporate banker, he was deeply frustrated. I knew there had to be more for him than pushing paper. He had done it right - followed the proper path of education and had what most considered a great future in front of him. That was 1986 – and that’s when things changed and he decided to go limitless. Three years later he was operating Canada’s largest rehabilitation center for abandoned exotic animals – a lifelong dream come true. As a result, an incredible myriad of wonderful creatures became part of his family – swimming with jaguars, running with wolves, playing in the snow with tigers, helping an owl take flight again.  He wanted to help others feel the incredible satisfaction that comes from doing what one loves. My next step – helping people create their own Limitless adventure. Over the last 20 years, he has worked with over 2000 businesses and individuals to help them create and grow.

Dr. Steve Taubman joins host Denise Griffitts to share tips and techniques that will help you handle stressful situations with mastery.

Despite graduating valedictorian from one of the nation’s top chiropractic colleges and running a thriving practice, Dr. Steve found that his outer success did little to calm his inner turmoil. Thus began a thirty year journey to understand the root of his suffering. His exploration of Western psychotherapy, Eastern teachings of mindfulness, hypnosis, and the science of neurology provided profound insight into the universal nature and cause of suffering; the subconscious mind… which ultimately led to the creation of his successful UnHypnosis system and bestselling book.

Description:

Odette Peek is here to share mindset shifts that need to happen in order to create massive impact in the world. Your message, your mission, and your vision will change the lives of millions of people, but only if you get out of your own way.  Odette Peek Laurie, award-winning entrepreneur and owner of Women on Top Business Coaching, built her first business in 1993 at the age of 27, during Canada’s worst economic crisis. She sold a service to real estate agents, the market hardest hit by the recession. Within five years and against all odds, Odette’s brainchild grew to seven figures. Today Odette helps entrepreneurs achieve their lifetime dreams through the vehicle of entrepreneurship. But it hasn’t always been easy. In her first year as a business coach, Odette lost her love relationship, both her parents passed away and she woke up one morning paralyzed in her arms. She couldn’t move them properly for more than a year. She says, "I know that business owners are not successful because they are paralyzed by their life circumstances and then use these as an excuse to not go after what they want. But excuses are stupid and stupid is very expensive.” Odette has written two books: “Profit Domination: How Successful Women Get on Top and Stay There -- 201 Rules for the Road,” and an account of her personal tragedies while building Women on Top in her most recent book, “Paralyzed: Getting Past the Excuses of Why You Aren’t Successful”.

David Brown - Interview With the Doctor of Business Planning

May 28, 2016 01:06:00

Description:

Denise Griffitts interviews "Doctor of Business Planning" David Brown. During his 25 year career in insurance, Dave Brown learned firsthand the challenges of running a small business.  Including the number one reason businesses fail, which is failure to understand their market and their customers’ buying habits. David became a student of marketing, and knocked it out of the park with his first campaign, which brought in 20% more sales.  When fellow agents saw the results, they said, “Hey Dave, you should be teaching this stuff.”  This led him to write his book From the Bottom Up:  The Ultimate Guide for Business Planning to Profitability.  In 2012 David left the insurance business and started his own consulting business, D Brown & Company, pursuing his passion of marketing and helping others. David is a firm believer in serving his community.  He became a member of a volunteer board of directors for a community health center in 1987 and worked his way up the ladder becoming President of the Board of Directors for nearly 20 years.  During his tenure the organization grew from a small health center to 4 locations in two counties with a budget over $11 million dollars.  He was elected President of the Michigan Primary Care Association for two terms.  He has also served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of Community Health Centers.  David’s work has earned him several awards from both the State and National Associations.

Ruth Ross - Reflections and Recalculations

Apr 9, 2016 01:01:00

Description:

Denise Griffitts interviews author, speaker, and engagement evangelist Ruth Ross. A journey with a destination that only you can choose. A journey that will ignite your life and refuel your career. Corporate leaders, midcareer professionals, entrepreneurs and others have sought Ruth Ross out as their guide because she took this journey herself. To her amazement, she realized she was not alone in her feelings of disenfranchisement, anxiety, boredom and apathy. Then, she did what many of us think about but rarely do: Stop. Reassess. And commit to the life she wanted to lead. The result is that Ruth created resources to help leaders identify whether the “disengagement disease” is infecting their organizations — or even themselves. As a successful HR executive for top Fortune 500 companies, she realized she felt held hostage by the trappings that come with a “big job.” She was an influencer at her company, yet she felt invisible. Perhaps even more debilitating, she recognized that her work no longer excited her. After putting a name to these feelings and admitting she was disengaged, she set off on a new path as an advocate for treating this affliction. If Ruth’s story strikes a chord with you, join her on a journey toward reengaging your life and career. You won’t have to pack for this trip. In fact, you’ll end up discarding baggage that might be holding you back from coming alive.

Creating a Go-Giver Culture

Nov 21, 2015 01:05:00

Description:

Denise Griffitts interviews Bob Burg and John David Mann on Your Partner In Success Radio. It is generally agreed upon that entrepreneurship is the engine that drives an economy upwards and is primarily responsible for its growth. Entrepreneurs create jobs, bring better and more affordable products and services to the marketplace, resulting in greater societal health, overall wealth and a vastly improved standard of living. And, while we treasure the entrepreneur, one needs not start their own business in order to be one. One can be entrepreneurial within a company setting (often called “intrapreneurs”) and can lead from anywhere they happen to be positioned. John David Mann, a successful entrepreneur and student of success (and author of numerous books on both topics) shares with us exactly how you – from any position in your company – can create a go-giver culture. But, what exactly IS a go-giver culture? Why will it make your team-members, your customers, and all your stakeholders more loyal? And, how will it make your business, and your life, a lot more fun and much more profitable? We’ll find out in this enlightening discussion. Bob Burg, coauthor of the international bestseller, The Go-Giver and a much sought-after speaker at sales and leadership conferences, is committed to inspiring the entrepreneurial spirit in us all. He shows that companies both large and small that conduct their businesses “The Go-Giver Way” are not only of much greater value to their customers; they are also significantly more functional, and profitable, as well.

She is also CEO of Business Solutions Made Simple, a multi-VA firm made up of the best and brightest virtual assistants (VA) who specialize in assisting high achieving entrepreneurs.

And as Tracey and I have discussed numerous times both privately and publicly, the problem often lies in the depth (or lack thereof) of business knowledge and actual training/education the new VA has acquired. We will talk about: What do you need to start a VA business? How do you price your services? Where do you get clients? What about subcontracting for other VA's? How can you "level up" your VA business? How do you manage your time, clients and projects? How can you compete with the "big dogs" in the VA industry?

And that poses very real issues for business owners who employ them and Baby Boomers who are attempting to work side-by-side with them.

Denise Griffitts Interviews Don Hutson: The Global Expert on Sales & Negotiations. At age 17 a young Don Hutson helped his dad selling houses in a brand new subdivision outside of Memphis, Tennessee.  Don had a problem.  As a skinny teenager, he needed to wear a suit, to appear older and more professional.  He thought adding a hat to the look would do the trick.  And so launched a legendary sales career for Don Hutson.  It was in that year he and his dad sold 76 houses, and the rest is history. Although his plan was to succeed his mother and father to get his degree at their alma mater, fate had a different plan, and that twist of fate was the key to Don Hutson’s incredible journey.  He worked his way through the University of Memphis, graduating with a degree in Sales, the only one in America at that time. Don went on to become the #1 salesperson in a national training organization. He established his own training firm and was soon in demand as a professional speaker. Don has been recognized with many honors, most recently the National Speakers Association’s “Master of Influence” Award.  He shares this recognition with leaders that include Ken Blanchard, Jack Kemp, Zig Ziglar and Norman Vincent Peale.  Don is the author of 14 books, including his latest, Selling Value: Key Principle of Value-Based Selling, and his two Wall Street Journal and New York Times best sellers, The One Minute Entrepreneur: the Secret to Creating and Sustaining a Successful Business and the One Minute Negotiator: Simple Steps to Reach Better Agreements.

For 12 years he worked at a job that he absolutely hated. So much so that his days were consumed with thoughts of quitting. But as a family man with a wife and children to support, that was just not an option. Things came to a breaking point in the summer of 2011. He was over $180,000 in debt, his marriage was falling apart, and his children barely knew him because he was always working. The cherry on the cake was that he was 170 pounds overweight. In the back of his mind he had a dream of being a writer. How could that be possible, a guy with no college degree become a writer? More than that, he wanted freedom! Three years ago Kimanzi finally got fed up enough to stop existing and to do something about his dream. He decided to stop listening to all those things keeping him from a life that he and his family truly deserved. Today he is a contributing writer for The Huffington Post, Entrepreneur Magazine, and Mind Body Green. He is a business editor at The Good Men Project. His mission is to help men and women create true freedom in life. Today we are going to pick up the threads on Kimanzi's tale and find out how he lost 170 pounds and moved his family to Maui, Hawaii.

Content Marketing Strategist and CEO at Artre International, James Artre, is a direct-marketing veteran with over 30 years experience to his credit. James started his career in marketing as supervisor of a direct-mail printing company, overseeing the day-to-day activities of marketing materials as they worked their way through the creation process and then on to the consumer. Little did James realize at the time, that the numerous hours spent proofreading content were actually preparing him for his future career as copywriter, content strategist and consultant. James is perhaps one of the best-kept secrets in marketing, choosing to work behind the scenes as opposed to today’s "gurus" who prefer the limelight.  As James states, "I've never been much interested in becoming a star personally, I'd much rather help others learn how to shine a little brighter, instead." James attributes this attitude of helping others shine brighter to a quote he read by the late great motivational speaker and author, Zig Ziglar, who said, "You can have everything in life you want, if you just help enough other people get what they want." It is upon this principle that we base today’s show; titled:  Give and It Shall Be Given Unto You: A Success Paradigm We will discuss the following points: The Importance of Having a Success ParadigmThe Give & Receive PrincipleMindset vs. Technique Be sure to join us in the chat room to ask quesitons of either of us.

A second sectional crown followed in 2007, and Coach Johnson then coached the Trojans to their third straight league title in 2008 by posting a perfect 12-0 record in league play, netting Coach of the Year honors. His success continued in 2009 with a league co-championship (34-2 league record over a three-season stretch) and third sectional title in four years, with an overall record of 20-5, his first-ever trip to the state quarterfinals and more Coach of the Year accolades.

Denise Griffitts Interviews Steve Rizzo

Jan 26, 2013 01:03:00

Description:

Meet Steve Rizzo, author of Amazon's Best Selling book Get Your Shift Together.    Once upon a time, Steve Rizzo was told by a guidance counselor that he didn’t have the intelligence for college.  And having been saddled with the dubious high school honer of being voted “Least Likely to Succeed,” Steve didn’t give himself much of a chance to emerge as anything special, much less a world-class comedian or a hall of fame speaker and trainer.  Years of negativity had led him to believe that dreams were the luxury of only a fortunate few.    “Looking back,” says Steve, “I can see how and why I sabotaged so many opportunities.  My perceived limitations had me very confused.  I had a fear of failure and a fear of success. I knew I had talent, but I couldn’t understand why I wasn’t being given a chance.  I finally realized that opportunity had been knocking all along…I was just afraid to open the door.”    Steve went on to surprise everyone, including himself, by excelling with honors at the university and post-graduate levels.  Eventually Steve even taught at his old high school, proving once and for all that guidance counselors are not fortune-tellers.    Steve has spent much of his own life learning how to pursue and achieve is own definition of success.  Luckily for audiences across the country and around the world that definition has evolved to include showing others his blueprint for realizing their dreams and achieving personal excellence and professional satisfaction.

Dec 15, 2012 01:03:00

Description:

This week I welcome to Your Partner In Success Radio Janet R. Carpman, Ph.D., and author of Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around. If you are as directionally impaired as I am, there actually is help! And when I say that I am directionally impaired, I mean it so bad that my dentist leads me back through the labyrinth (as I see it) of his building back to the receptionist desk because they know that I will wander around helplessly until somebody takes pity on me!   Jan Carpman has been thinking about wayfinding ever since she became lost on a Jersey Shore boardwalk as a wandering 3-year-old. Many years later, while directing a unique applied research project at the University of  Michigan Medical Center, she found that disorientation accounted for a significant amount of stress experienced by hospital patients and visitors. As I told her during the pre-interview, not even my onboard nav system in my vehicle is of any real assistance because I invariably pick a fight with the voice that is telling me to "turn left here", because she is not the boss of me. But that is a whole 'nother topic. Jan holds a PhD in Architecture and Sociology (University of Michigan), a Master of City Planning (Harvard University), and a BA in Sociology (University of Rochester) and is a skilled speaker, writer, and coach.  She is going to tell us why she wrote this book and share some very important tips and tricks to help us to learn how to navigate.

Denise Griffitts Interviews Sean Moffett

Oct 13, 2012 01:03:00

Description:

  Leader of the Excellence Movement   Sean Moffett of  The Moffett Company says “business IS personal” and I absolutely agree with him.   After the financial crash we witnessed in 2008 the landscape we do business in has changed. Back then we used language like customer satisfaction and exceeding expectations. Today, we see our clients now know their dollars are far more precious than ever before. That’s the new economy.   As a result, our clients are no longer looking to be satisfied – they need to be electrified! We need to do more than just exceed their expectations, our clients are looking for authentic care – a true reciprocal relationship. They will invest in us as we invest in the them.   While it’s true that excellence in your field is critical, it is also true that the process by which your clients receive your goods and services is becoming equally important. So in effect, our ability to deliver our expertise is directly linked to our ability to control the experience for our clients. Drop the ball somewhere in the process and chances are, your competitor will pick it up. You need to create an environment where your customer comes first!   Sales excellence and sales success are Sean Moffett’s passion. Developing those traits in others is his mission. Through years of dominating the markeplace in his fields Sean has identified the three things individuals and organizations do to force themselves into sales mediocrity.

Description:

  Dixie Gillaspie has been a business consultant and analyst, a firestarter and mentor, a coach, alchemist and general trouble-shooter for more years than she cares to admit. (but if you ask, she'll probably tell you.) Her success stories have been featured in books such as Go-Givers Sell More, by Bob Burg and John David Mann, The Referral Engine, by John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing, and more than one of the books by “The Nametag Guy,” Scott Ginsberg. She will release her first full-length book, JUST BLOW IT UP!, through Sound Wisdom this November. Dixie says she is blessed to have come to a wonderful convergence where "What I am and what I do is the same thing - I am a coach." Dixie considers herself more of a “story teller” than a speaker, but she’s shared the stage with the likes of Zig Zigler, Bob Burg, John David Mann, Scott Ginsberg, Mark Sanborn, and Southwest Airlines Emerita, Coleen Barrett. She's allergic to the word "CAN'T" and her Blast Thru Coaching(TM) method is a process for challenging and even eliminating the word from your vocabulary.

Sean Moffett of The Moffett Company says "business IS personal" and I absolutely agree with him. [Source: The Moffett Company.com] After the financial crash we witnessed in 2008 the landscape we do business in has changed. Back then we used language like customer satisfaction and exceeding expectations. Today, we see our clients now know their dollars are far more precious than ever before. That's the new economy. As a result, our clients are no longer looking to be satisfied - they need to be electrified! We need to do more than just exceed their expectations, our clients are looking for authentic care - a true reciprocal relationship. They will invest in us as we invest in the them. While it's true that excellence in your field is critical, it is also true that the process by which your clients receive your goods and services is becoming equally important. So in effect, our ability to deliver our expertise is directly linked to our ability to control the experience for our clients. Drop the ball somewhere in the process and chances are, your competitor will pick it up. You need to create an environment where your customer comes first! Sales excellence and sales success are Sean Moffett's passion. Developing those traits in others is his mission. Through years of dominating the markeplace in his fields Sean has identified the three things individuals and organizations do to force themselves into sales mediocrity.  Want to know what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong in sales?

Bob Burg is the Go Giver

May 19, 2012 01:08:00

Description:

This week I welcome back to Your Partner In Success Radio Author and Speaker Bob Burg. Although for years he was best known for his book Endless Referrals, over the past few years it’s his business parable, The Go-Giver (coauthored with John David Mann) that has captured the imagination of his readers. It shot to #6 on The Wall Street Journal’s Business Bestsellers list just three weeks after its release and reached #9 on BusinessWeek. It’s been translated into 21 languages. It is his fourth book to sell over 200,000 copies. Shifting your focus from “getting to giving” is not only a nice way to live life…but a very financially profitable way, as well. When Bob Burg, coauthor (with John David Mann) of the international bestseller, The Go-Giver, speaks about “giving,” he’s talking in terms of “constantly and consistently adding value to the lives of others.” When you can take your focus off yourself and shift it onto how you can be an asset of value to other people, you’ll plant seeds of goodwill — of great will — that will come back to you many, many times over. And, not because of some magical, mystical type of thinking, but because it makes absolutely practical sense.”

Denise Griffitts Interviews Lisa Manyon

May 5, 2012 01:02:00

Description:

  Lisa Manyon is an award-winning, #1 bestselling author, copywriting strategist and master of powerfully communicating marketing messages to increase results. A leading expert in copywriting, Lisa successfully challenges the notion that “copy is king,” with her message that copy is actually QUEEN, strategy is KING, and together they are the key to creating strong and effective results. She is the creator of the new marketing model for success that’s changing the way people market today. Lisa tuned into tactics that consumers, especially women, were turned off by. She recognized that standard marketing techniques, especially in the copywriting arena, are antiquated and not as effective as they once were including; hyped-up claims, overly “sales-y” spiels, hard-sell tactics, broad-based messages, scare tactics, stretching the truth, false claims of scarcity, over-dramatizing pain and problems and more, Lisa shares a better way. She’s found that the traditional copywriting formula of “Problem. Agitate. Solve.” isn’t resonating with women. Women are looking for solutions to their challenges. What’s really working is her new copywriting formula of “Challenge. Solution. Invitation.” In the traditional formula we’re taught to highlight the issue, we’re told to agitate that issue to focus on the pain points and then we solve the problem. Manyon believes people are in enough pain. We don’t need to be agitated to make a decision. In fact, especially for women, when someone acknowledges our challenges (and really understands where we’re coming from), provides a helpful solution and extends a friendly invitation, we’re more likely to take action. Nothing truly flows when it comes from a place of pain and fear.

Your Partner In Success Radio Welcomes Kimb Tiboni

Oct 22, 2011 00:47:00

Description:

The term "Creative" is something that is appearing more and more on the internet as a marketing term. According to Kimb Tiboni, author of "Illogical Success: A Creative's Innovative Path" the term is interchangeable with designer or graphic artist. And if you are an affiliate marketer you have undoubtedly come across the term "Creative’s" for marketing which can come in the form of image and text banners. As a graphic designer, when Kimb first began hearing herself referred to and referenced as a "creative" she found the terminology odd, but as time passed, she found that being labeled as a "creative" suited her just fine. As Kimb says in her new book, a creative person is born that way, and signs show up very early, whether you are a sculptor, painter, animator, florist, interior designer, or like me, a web developer. In her book, Kimb gives techniques, tips, tricks and ideas about creative entrepreneurship that can be applied to anyone with a strong passion and a dream to become an entrepreneur and share your product, art, and literature or business visions with the world. During this interview, Kimb will be sharing the path that she has taken to get where she is today and what compelled her to write her new book. You can find Kimb's Graphic Design Studio here.

Your Partner In Success Radio Welcomes Dovell Bonnett

Jun 25, 2011 01:02:00

Description:

Cyber attacks are now at epidemic levels. A single computer breach is now estimated to cost over $7.2 million per incident. Companies, universities, utility plants and government offices are battling this by adding more backend security (like firewalls, anti-virus and CAPTCHAs) to protect their sensitive data, all the while leaving the “front door” wide open. The biggest and most overlooked threat to almost every system is not from outside. It’s your own employees! Beefing up password size and complexity frequently leads to more insecurity because it drives the users to practice poor password management.   Dovell Bonnett has been creating security solutions for computer users for over 20 years. In order to provide these solutions to consumers as directly, and quickly, as possible, he founded Access Smart. With each of his innovations, the end user — the person sitting in front of a computer — is his # 1 customer.   Mr. Bonnett’s solutions reduce security risks for individual users, small businesses and large corporations. His professional experience spans 21 years in engineering, product development, sales and marketing, with more than 15 years focused specifically on smartcard technology, systems and applications.

Your Partner In Success Radio Welcomes Susan Handley

Apr 16, 2011 01:04:00

Description:

Susan Handley first started designing handbags when she was ten years old. At that time, the ideas remained strictly in her imagination. Today, they’ve grown up to become a very real part of her adult life. As the founder and sole designer of Beijo, Susan is not only watching her own dream come true, but is also the creative force behind a growing success story for women all across the country. As a single mom struggling just to make ends meet, Susan started Beijo with no prior business experience. Instead, she had the encouragement of her friends and family, and the desire to make a better life for herself and her young son, Kyle. It was Kyle, in fact, who provided the name for his mom’s company. “Beijo,” which means “kiss” in Portuguese, was Kyle’s second spoken word, one that the toddler often repeated when asking for a “beijo, Mama, beijo.” From that kiss for luck was born the inspiration for Susan to begin selling—at first by the armload out of her car—the Beijo bags that, only three years later, are now sold by the tens of thousands at home parties. Having declined department store offers to carry her bags nationwide, Susan is committed to her vision that home parties remain the core of her company. Many of the women who host Beijo parties are in the process of gaining their first measure of financial independence. These women are, as Susan says, “Exactly like myself, who can do something to make money and feel good and still be there at the bus stop at 2:00 when their children get home.”

More recently, Andrea has expanded her entrepreneurial interests. She and her husband Jamie launched a wine tasting social network, VinYou.com in March 2010. And she also has a number of other web-based businesses in the works. Andrea and I will be discussing social media and why it is so important to come out from underneath your safe rock and put yourself out there as a professional and as an expert. We will talk about how very daunting this can see to the newly minted online entrepreneur and how you can change your mindset and your business model by becoming more active (in a professional and seemly manner!) on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Andrea’s story is quite compelling in that she is now taking the steps necessary to make her business more visible on the Internet and is undergoing the mind-shifts necessary to make this happen without feeling that she is bragging or being overly “salesy”. Let’s face it, some marketing and marketers come off as frankly obnoxious and this can be a real concern for people who want to expand their business presence to the Internet. For audience members who are experiencing the same type of angst this interview will be one that you definitely want to tune in to. Please join us in the chat room if you have any questions for either myself or Andrea.

During a career spanning over twenty years, Theodore Henderson has excelled as an articulate, organized, and successful business manager, entrepreneur, consultant, seminar leader, and speaker. He demonstrates a proven ability to build and maintain profitable, long-term relationships with a sophisticated client base. Theodore is a lifelong New Yorker who works with individuals who want to use biblical principles and Christian faith as a guide to success in all the key areas of life: spiritual, social, personal, family, and business. He is also involved in youth leadership training and has taken a special interest in mentoring and tutoring urban youth and the disadvantaged. Theodore has written an extraordinary new book, The Wisdom Compass,which takes the biblical book of Proverbs and brings it into the present as a vehicle for personal transformation. Why Proverbs? Wisdom Compass author Theodore Henderson says, "The answer is simple: The book of Proverbs was originally intended, when first published several thousand years ago, as a wisdom guide for those of faith to do what is right and for making sound judgments in sometimes-difficult circumstances. It was written to give us wisdom, instruction, perception, prudence, knowledge, judgment, learning, and advice." Another unique aspect of The Wisdom Compass is that the teachings are suitable for all even if they share a different faith or religion. Henderson asserts that the purpose of Proverbs' lessons is to help people live according to God’s wisdom. He explains, "There is a divine plan for each person, but it is up to us to seek and follow its direction. After all, we are creatures of free will, and we don’t have to follow the right path." The Wisdom Compass was written for those who are striving to live life at that next level. The book can provide the steps for planning the journey. We will be discussing faith based decision making in business and in life.
