The average conference lasts between one and three days. They’re expensive to put on and expensive to attend. So when it comes to deciding where a company spends its education budget, modern conferences need to provide value and demonstrate an ROI that continues to grow even after they end. With pre-conference …
I am not a good networker. I don’t like to go out of my way to introduce myself, I don’t feel the need to meet new people, I certainly don’t like being in a room full of strangers whose only goal is to introduce themselves to someone new. Sometimes, when I go to …
One of the great things about negative thinking is it fosters innovation. Finding improvements to already useful items is a sure sign of someone who is not satisfied. For example, why would anyone build a better mouse trap? An entirely positive person would be happy simply because they have a mouse trap! If it …
Managers across the business landscape are seeing a new side to corporate loyalty. Gone are the days of fresh faced employees hoping someday to get that clichéd gold watch after decades of service. A new perspective of employees looking out for themselves and letting the company worry about the company is more commonplace. Loyalty …
Last week we talked about no. This week we’ll talk about yes. It’s always good to have at least one person in your group with a negative mindset. At least one, no more than two. . The point is to get a person who doesn’t always agree with you. Having a dissenting voice …
“No” is an important word. It’s okay to say “no”. For many people, “no” is a hard word to say. We’ve grown up thinking “no” is a bad thing. We’ve been conditioned not to say “no”. Think about it. When you were growing up, what did you hear the most? “No”.Can I …
Nutritionist Charles Remington (@FLCCoach on Twitter) the Fat Loss Coach discusses weight loss with host Craig Price. Craig has had a long personal history with weight loss (you don’t get a body like his on just frappachinos and doughnuts alone) but his understanding on what works can be down right murky. Like most people, Craig gets confused on the constant flip flopping in the media on what you can and then can’t, then can eat again foods so Charles is here to clear up some of the confusion. The two discuss myths of when to eat, how often you should eat, what kinds of foods are best as well as the importance of eating the right amounts of food. Charles also explains why you need to change up your eating patterns and also answers several listeners questions!
Charles Remington is a nutritionist and herbalist who is the author of a best-selling nutritional software program. Known to his thousands of clients as The Fat Loss Coach, his concepts on healthy weight loss are well embraced by the medical community and supported by a large insurance provider. He has conducted more than 200 seminars in the corporate, municipal and education arenas and manages a nutritional practice in Cheshire, Connecticut.

Hayley Foster (@HayleyFoster on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss TEDx events. With the TEDx format becoming more and more popular, Hayley Foster explains what a TEDx talk is, what the biggest mistakes professional keynoters make when trying to take their traditional talk and put it into the TED format. Think of TED as a liquid concentrate presentation instead of the watered down sugary kool aid of a keynote. It’s all about having an idea worth spreading, an idea that you can explain in a succinct yet engaging way. There’s no room for extra padding here! Hayley even explains that the audience has to apply to even attended! Getting the idea in front of the right people to create innovation, it’s an intriguing concept.
Hayley has just released her new 64-page mini booklet specifically written to help professional speakers called “Don’t Tank Your TED Talk! 12 Mistakes Professional Speakers Make”.
After working with well over a hundred speaking professionals, and coaching hundreds of TEDx talks, Hayley has identified why TED.com content directors avoid professional speakers. As it turns out, some of those same behaviors and training, that have enabled your professional speaking success, are the exactly those which can contribute to one terrible TED/TEDx talk.

Dan Nevins (@DanNevins on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his amazing story and the Wounded Warrior Project. Dan talks about how he lost his legs while serving in Iraq and his struggles to cope and adjust. Thankfully, the Wounded Warrior Project was there to offer a helping hand, bringing a bit of normalcy to utterly abnormal situation. The two discuss how the Project helps not only the physically injured but the vets who return with the invisible scars of combat stress (a.k.a. PTSD). Craig also struggles through the interview as the overwhelming reality of the topic makes being a smart ass almost impossible (but Craig finds a way!). It is an awe inspiring episode that really can’t be missed!
The Wounded Warrior Project’s mission is to to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members. Please visit http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/ to learn more about this amazing organization and how you can help returning servicemen and women get the help they deserve.
Phil Gerbyshak (@philgerb on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss his path to entrepreneurship. Starting your own business can be tough enough but when you have to figure out how and when to leave your current job can make that final jump even more scary. With Phil, he figured a two year notice would benefit everyone. Two-years?? That little fact fried Craig’s brain but not Phil’s honest and realistic approach to spreading your wings and finally making it on your own. Phil explains how a great employee can make their own terms (you lazy losers just collecting a check…not so much) how to work two jobs ethically (no stealing pens from the supply closet) and how to work from a coffee shop can save your sanity. He also opens up about the loss and strange feelings you get the first few weeks out there on your own. And yet leaving to start your own company can be done without burning bridges and even keeping your current employees on your side. A great guide for anyone thinking about going out on their own but aren’t sure how to leave their current job behind.
Phil also hosts a great internet video podcast call “The Shut Up Show” with his co-host Bernie Xiong, which Craig calls a video support group for entrepreneurs. Check out Craig as he guests on Phil and Bernie’s show to talk about why he got into podcasting and how he shut up (yeah right…in his case it’s just an expression) and just did a lot of strange things in his life.
