It turns out that there is a lot in common between flying a Blackhawk and running a business. Ok, so maybe imminent death isn’t quite as close with one vs the other, however the stakes and potential power represented by both are extreme, important, and meaningful. Today it’s my privilege to introduce you to Commander Adam Jones. Adam was a Blackhaw…
 
I hope your 2021 is off to a great start! Before I get into the episode, I want you to be one of the first to know that I’m partnering with Simon Sinek, NYT bestseller of ’Start With Why,” “Leaders Eat Last,” and the creator of one of the most legendary TED talks. I’ll be teaching a new course, “Branding to Make Your Business Invincible” in his onl…
 
We are all playing a game with constantly changing players and constantly changing rules. Leadership teacher and guru Simon Sinek so aptly captures this in his book The Infinite Game. If we have a rigid mindset, we are going to become demotivated and quickly lose. Let’s leave that for the other people who don’t have the CLARITY and perspective we d…
 
We really did it, and you are in for a real treat this week. We made it through 2020 with enough sanity and fortitude to be resolved to make 2021 something special. That’s why we’re going to be hearing from several Clarity Compressed Alumni as we head into the new year. Get ready for quick shots of insights and encouragement from (in order of appea…
 
I originally recorded this interview with David Long to release it to car dealers, but since it was so relevant to ANY leader, I wanted to share it with you all as well! He’s the Executive General Manager at Hansel Automotive Group, located in the San Francisco Bay area. Although David’s profession is in the automotive industry, his true genius is …
 
I hope you are ready to finish out 2020 with me and go into 2021 with some perspective on where you are heading. Today’s guest will help you do just that. I had the privilege to sit with Ty Montague. If you haven’t heard of him before, you’re in for a treat. Ty has is the co:founder and CEO of NY based co:collective who helps develop and implement …
 
Have you ever been hard on yourself for not being able to keep balance in your life? I have. I find that there are some areas in which I naturally find balance and some which it seems like a complete enigma. One thing is for sure, there is no “one thing” you can change that guarantees balance in any area. That’s because life is not steady. It’s any…
 
We made it to December! The momentum of what has transpired in our country since March has been fast and furious. I think a lot of us have been asking, “How did we get here?” in so many areas of life: personally, professionally, politically, and beyond. This line of thinking led me to the topic of today's episode, Momentum. We usually hear about th…
 
It’s a great week to be Thankful! This week I’m extra thankful for my friend, David Long for inadvertently giving me the topic for this week’s podcast. We were together for the Live Event in Philly I put on a couple of weeks ago. After a VERY long and engaging day at the event, I was completely drained. I always leave everything on the field on day…
 
I hope every single one of you is doing well today…really! I’m about to share something that is sure to make your day even better. I’m about to share the conversation I had with the insightful and inspirational, Glenn Lundy. (You really should check out his social media and especially his daily morning show, Rise and Grind. This interview happened …
 
This is one of those weeks where I get to introduce you to another one of my friends, the one and only Jasmine Star. Jasmine is the founder of the exploding platform, Social Curator and before that a very successful photographer. She’s got hundreds of thousands of devoted followers, been featured on Forbes, MSNBC, Entrepreneur, The Huff Post and mo…
 
Before I start: I’m doing a thing, Live in Philly next Thursday…for real NOW, I was on a date with my wife this past week when she blew my mind and said “I don’t want to live in the “what if”, I want to live in the “what is”. WOW! I immediately told her I was stealing that for this week's podcast, LOL So many people spend their lives thinking about…
 
So I decided to do it. Take a big swing in a time when most people are protecting the plate. (In baseball, ‘protecting the plate’ is basically a half-swing that’s primary purpose is to NOT get a strike). I decided to host a live, in-person event in Philly in a time when all the other events in the Automotive Industry have been cancelled. (P.S. You …
 
I’m too excited not to tell you this first…I’m hosting an IN-PERSON event in Philly in early November. This one is geared toward retail automotive and capacity is very limited. Registration is opening this week. If you want to be first to know, register here. Now on to our regular programming…I changed my mind literally moments before I hit record …
 
Are you done with election season yet? I mean, it’s usually pretty sporty, but this year is in a league of its own. The venom, the volume, and soon to be rendered…the VOTE! I’m blessed to work with brilliant, talented, and kind people who will most certainly vote for different candidates come November 3rd…AND I LOVE IT! Since navigating the social/…
 
It’s Fall time friends, and there’s just something about this season that motivates me to make meaningful change. In my career, there has been nothing more influential than the ability (or inability) to make meaningful change to the team that I surround myself with. Over the course of the last two decades I have worked with countless teams. Mainly,…
 
I don’t know about you, but dare I say the world is starting to feel a little more connected again. Not “zoom life” but in real life. Regardless of where you live, people are starting to “move about the cabin” more and that is leading to more connection on a human level. This week I’m talking to those of you who run a business, freelance, or maybe …
 
If you know what the word “palmcorder” means, then you will have some idea of how long ago I “started” making content. In this week’s episode, I have the very first video camera I bought to start making content with and I try to shoot on it again (you’ll have to watch to see how THAT worked out)! Getting right to the punchline; I started. I’m the t…
 
I’m willing to bet that most of you would agree that throughout our journey in life and business, the impact and benefits of our relationships FAR exceed any financial investment, product knowledge, or strategy. I received some serious clarity on this while filming an Instagram Story with NYT Bestseller and Storybrand, CEO Donald Miller back in Feb…
 
I didn’t take a lot of math courses in college, but one of the most memorable courses I took was a math course. Introduction to Statistics. I can’t remember a single calculation but I learned a VERY valuable lesson: Data doesn’t lie, but statisticians can pretty much make it say anything they want. This week, we are talking about measuring what mat…
 
It’s September…wait…what???? Yeah, we all feel the same way about the strangest collective summer we’ve ever had. But I hope that it wasn’t all lost for you. It certainly wasn’t for me. Sure, there was challenge after challenge. Exhaustion after exhaustion. However, even in the most challenging times, there can be good, solid innovation and growth.…
 
Can you imagine a kindergarten class where we allowed and even encouraged children to treat one another like we commonly observe today…and maybe even participate ourselves? If I try, I can imagine such a situation, and it’s all wrong. Election seasons are always full of escalated emotions and extreme levels of venom and division that is always some…
 
Congrats, you left Monday in the dust! If you are like so many of us, Mondays often leave you staring face to face with a slew of problems. Some big, some small, but all of them requiring some sort of action to address it. Sometimes the problems are new, and sometimes it’s the same problem that keeps surfacing over and over again. Why is that? I re…
 
My guest this week broke through walls like a wrecking ball. Aaron McCormick was raised in poverty by a single mother on the South Side of Chicago and was raised by a family who held him back from pursuing college. That didn’t stop him from becoming hugely successful in the corporate world, being considered in the top 1% of IBM. We discuss what sep…
 
Today I’m opening up the vault to a segment from the Brand Is Gravity workshop I released for sale, last year. It is the section on ‘honesty.’ When building a brand, the concept of ‘honesty’ is the foundation of any authentic brand. Make no mistake, the truth always comes out. Honesty in relationships is about being straightforward with the other p…
 
Lately, it’s been really easy to think about things we HAVE to do; like wearing a mask, working remotely, eating at home, educating our kids, staying up to date on every piece of new news… Feeling stressed yet? No wonder the United States is facing some of the highest levels of stress, anxiety, addiction, depression, obesity, divorce, heart disease…
 
We seem to live in a world where everyone is imagining everyone else at their worst. So many are now conditioned to assume that every news story, every tweet, and every word choice is meant to be an all out aggression. Guess what, although we are in the midst of a major flare-up, this isn’t new to human nature. It’s been happening in our relationsh…
 
There are thought leaders, and then there are thoughtFULL leaders. This week's guest: the one and only Chris Do. If you are a creative or in the agency business, you already know who he is. If you are just hearing about him, he is the founder of the design agency Blind and also the game-changing educational ecosystem The Futur which has a mission t…
 
Ok, so I have a bit of a nerdy man-crush on the author of the most influential business book I’ve ever read. Jim Collins wrote “Good to Great” which was published way back in 2001. (Yes, that is almost 20 years ago and YES, you are old) . I started my first business in 2003 and latched onto this book a couple of years in. In those days, I spent hou…
 
I’m not here. I’m on vacation. And a big part of taking a break is refreshing and finding inspiration to keep running the race in a manner worth running. That’s why my team has helped me by putting together some great clips from my last live stream event. You’re going to get a quick burst of inspiration and energy from some guests and friends… many…
 
We’ve been pretty serious on the show lately. Why wouldn’t we be, life is heavy these days! That’s why I thought it would be great to get back to talking a little “shop” with the CEO of the very well respected agency, Ignite Visibility, John Lincoln. If you have a business or are a marketer, I know you’ll get some great insights from this conversat…
 
Easy answer here; EVERYONE is stressed out. Our routines have changed. Our plans have changed. Our sense of security has changed. Our parenting responsibilities have changed. Our work situation has changed. Our LIVES have changed. So what are WE going to do about it? The way I see it, we have two options: Choose to be a victim to our circumstances …
 
Like many of you, I’ve been reeling. So many emotions have surfaced in response to the recent events surrounding the murder of George Floyd and ensuing social unrest. I’ve been pensive to talk about these things publicly because of fear that I might say something unintentionally offensive to my African American friends. But greater than that fear i…
 
Although it seems like everything has changed, there are still quite a few things that we can lean on to help us navigate our interpersonal relationships at work and at home. This week I was able to sit down with Amber Hurdle, a high-level consultant, coach, speaker, author, and former celebrity event planner. Yes, of course she lives in Nashville …
 
Last week I made this post on LinkedIn that got a little transparent about the sleeplessness that has come with the territory over the course of this pandemic. Apparently, I have a lot of company as the comments and empathy rolled in to make it my farthest-reaching post of the week. But it isn’t all bad. It never is ALL bad…or ALL good for that mat…
 
Without a doubt, the Zoom calls, Google Hangouts, Facetimes, Blue Jeans (yes that’s a real one), and every other virtual call can be quite exhausting. My personal progression went from pensive, to motivated, neutral, all the way to now, when I’m over it. Sure there are efficiencies, but I can’t help but count down the days until we can get our “gam…
 
This week after MANY epic production mistakes on my behalf, I managed to get a podcast recorded! (I explain more in the show). After two weeks of amazing best-selling authors for guests, Donald Miller and David Meerman Scott, I’m setting some time aside to talk with you about a pyramid-shaped tool called Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs that I believe c…
 
Why do you do business with who you do business with? There is no simple answer. With so many variables to consider like timing, cost, value, stage of life and so on, how can any business secure the loyalty of a consumer? By making them more than a customer and tapping into sentiments that run deeper than any single product or service. This week I …
 
There are talkers and there are doers. NYT best-selling author and CEO of the high-growth StoryBrand organization is my guest this week. He is one of the most dedicated doers I’ve ever met. More than that, he has been making a significant impact in my life for well over a decade and he is likely about to start impacting your life today. Don is a ma…
 
I don’t know about you, but I was doing an awful lot of “clinging” in the early days of this pandemic. Holding on to the hope that we would be back to normal quickly and without much trouble. Unfortunately those hopes have slowly faded over the past 6 weeks. But I’m realizing that in many instances, I might be better off not going back to the way I…
 
Everything has been so heavy that I’m looking to break the noise this week. Today’s guest is truly one in a million. It’s the filmmaker, director, and brand warrior, Darren Doane. (Check out his wikipedia page for a taste of the brilliance) One part of this story I love most is the fact that we met over some content I produced almost a year ago on …
 
It’s a battle for the ages that has confounded many teams, relationships, marriages, friendships and more! Some of it is ‘nature’ and some is ‘nurture’, but whether you tend to be optimistic or realistic, you must find the balance or risk ruining relationships. The current pandemic has us all showing our true colors and finding ways to look for tha…
 
If this COVID-19 situation has taught me anything, it’s that we’ve all been living in straw houses, and not fortresses. There will be tons of economic aftermath when we all get through this. There already are plenty of examples, but the one I see coming is going to be a seismic correction of traditional media. Price and payment advertising is the m…
 
Ok ok, I know that might seem a little insensitive, but if you know me, I really do care about people’s feelings. More importantly, I care about their families, livelihoods, our economy, and the stability of our country. Truth be told…we’re coming back from this COVID-19 thing. This is the time when we need to do our very best to keep calm and do e…
 
There are few things that would spur me to record and release a special episode, but this is one of them. There is a lot of fear and uncertainty going around due to the pandemic, economy, and even toilet paper shortages. I was compelled to get this message out to the CLARITY community quickly: Calm minds prevail. It’s going to be ok and in this epi…
 
I’ve wasted a lot of time and emotional energy in my life trying to convince unconvincible people. Maybe it’s the idealist or optimist in me. In any case, I was wasting both of our time by not paying enough attention to the signs. I hope this week's episode helps you avoid the mistakes that I made. This podcast actually stems from a clip of a conve…
 
These last few episodes have really been shaping up to be a bit of a thesis on organizational leadership and people development. This week’s topic is likely going to offend some people, and that’s ok. Sometimes being offended is our first indicator that we are being defensive. In episode 105 I went through four critical traits of great leaders and …
