Episode #158: Living a Life of Significance with Aaron Walker

Author of the Forthcoming Book View From the Top

I’ve crossed paths with today’s guest more times than I can count. I knew who he was and was familiar with his work, but just never worked up the nerve to introduce myself. 

Dumb right? It wasn’t until an event called Tribe Writers put on by Jeff Goins, that Aaron Walker decided to approach me and introduce himself. He must have gotten tired of waiting. It didn’t hurt that I was one of the speakers (made me hard to miss).

Everything I’d ever heard about Aaron was overwhelming positive. Witnessing him interact with people at Tribe Writers, and a few other conferences I’d seen him at, only helped to confirm what I’d heard.

I’m excited to let you know that in June, he has a brand new book coming out called View from the Top: Living a Life of Significance. You can actually pre-order it now, and I highly recommend that you do just that.

From launching numerous successful brick-and-mortar businesses over the years, to now coaching men all over the world through his numerous mastermind groups, Aaron is working hard every day to leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.

Episode #157: Mastering the Art and Science of Exceptional Presentation Design

With The Compelling Communicator Author Tim Pollard

I’ll be the first to admit I have a soft spot for books on public speaking. For me, it’s just a subject area where I feel as if there’s always something more or new to learn.

And if my writing in the margins, and all the highlighting and underlining I’ve done inside my copy of today’s featured book is any indication of the amount of insights I’ve gained, then look out because I’m about to be awesome!

My guest today is a chap named Tim Pollard. I call him chap because he’s originally from the UK and, last time I checked, that’s what they call each other over there. Now, however, Tim lives in Billings, MT of all places, so I’ll just call him friend.

His new book, as the image above might have clued you in on, is called The Compelling Communicator: Mastering the Art and Science of Exceptional Presentation Design.

Tim and his company, Oratium, have worked with LinkedIn, Salesforce, Disney, Rockwell, Ericsson, and Graybar, to name a few, and they specialize in training TEDx speakers.

Devouring this book with help you to “powerfully land a small number of big ideas.” Mastering that is the key to any memorable and actionable presentation.

If you’ve ever heard phrases like, “the ‘magic’ is in the comfort zone” and others like it, then you’ve been exposed to some of the myths associated with successfully stepping outside your comfort zone.

In the myth above, the reality is the “magic” can happen both inside and outside your comfort zone. If only there was a guide.
