Encore Episode: The 5 Most Powerful Moves You Can Make with Beverly Flaxington

Beverly FlaxingtonFor most of us, when we think change, we resist. There are things, it seems, that begin happening inside our body that tense up at just the idea of it.

Change is something we all have to face from time to time, but the word change sounds so abrupt, doesn’t it?

What if we could think instead to shift, much like an entrepreneur’s business idea might do when it comes to responding to changing market conditions?

Shift feels more gradual, more baby step-friendly, more evolutionary and, maybe most important, less stressful.

In her book Make Your SHIFT, Beverly Flaxington reveals the five most powerful moves you can make to get where you want to go. Change, in other words, doesn’t have to be hard.

From products and packaging, to marketing and advertising, the hits seem to far outweigh the misses. But what is it about Apple that has them firing on all cylinders more often that not?

When Ken Segall, author of the book Insanely Simple: The Obsession That Drives Apple’s Success, asked himself that question, he found a common thread in all the data, feedback and meeting notes.

Encore Episode: Surviving Job Loss with SPI’s Pat Flynn

Pat FlynnThe first time I heard the name Pat Flynn he came up three times in a single week.

There was a friend, a blog and a podcast all referencing this guy. I had to find out who he was and why he was so important.

If there was ever the perfect example of an individual honestly and ethically making his own way on the internet – employment be damned – Pat was it. A more personable, down-to-earth guy you’ll never meet.

He’s the proverbial exception to the rule. Nice guys finish last? Hardly! In Pat’s world, nice guys are right where they should be: at the top of their game and graciously showing the rest of us how it’s done.
