Jennifer Kahnweiler Phd. (@jennkahnweiler on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss introverts. For many people, introverts are a mystery. They tend to stay away from crowds and enjoy time alone. Yet, they are also highly effective leaders, workers and team members that can be invaluable to an organization. Craig and Jennifer have an honest discussion on why some people are introverts, the difference between social anxiety and being introverted and what Craig, a self-proclaimed misanthropic recluse, has done to try and overcome his own introvertedness. Mostly though it’s really just an excuse to stay home with his dogs and nap. They also talk about Jennifer’s latest book: The Genius of Opposites: How Introverts and Extroverts Achieve Extraordinary Results Together which provides a process that will enable introverts and extroverts to work together better and achieve more than they ever could on their own.

Scott McKain (@ScottMcKain on twitter) joins host Craig Price about his book Create Distinction. Being unique is something we all strive for. So much so that it seems everyone is the doing the same things to be unique (think hipster beards and tribal tattoos). Scott talks about how companies makes themselves unique to attract customers, Craig repeats his anti-purple cow rant, how to figure out what to focus on to be distinctive (other than being great) and how small businesses can compete with big companies by being distinctive. They also talk about how you need to know what your competition is before you can separate yourself from them. Far too many people don’t know what others are doing so they can stand out (I’m talking to you podcasters who don’t listen to podcasts!).
Scott can be found at the obvious http://ScottMcKain.com. You can all find his book Create Distinction: What to Do When Great Isn’t Good Enough to Grow Your Business on amazon and all the regular places.

Jeffrey Hayzlett (@JeffreyHayzlett on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his latest book Think Big, Act Bigger. Everyone has dreams and goals, but not everyone does the things necessary to achieve them. Jeffrey’s latest book Think Big, Act Bigger: The Rewards of Being Relentless shows readers how he has thought big and acted big in his career that included being the CMO at Kodak, becoming a business celebrity and being a prime-time Bloomberg Television host. Craig and Jeffrey discuss the need for confidence, how being authentic shouldn’t be a strategy it should just be as well as how failure and humility can fit in with your big plans. They also talk about Jeffrey’s recent induction into the National Speaker’s Hall of Fame as well as his failures on the football field. If you’re looking to move the needle of progress forward, you’ll want to listen in.

Ann Zuccardy (@AnnZuccardy on Twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss traumatic brain injuries. A slip in a german shower (No, that’s not a euphemism) sent Ann on a new path. Having to relearn things that once were simple not only was a frustration but a crash course on creativity for Ann. There was no real way to rehabilitate her injury so Ann had to figure it out on her own. Understanding how to get across the street or remembering appointments wasn’t something she could put on autopilot. Neuroplasticity became her new conversation starter! Craig and Ann talk about the accident, how she was able to comeback from the injury without much help and how her business changed for the better because of it.
