Scott Cooksey (@ideacharger on twitter) sits down with host Craig Price to discuss connection. Connection means different things for different people. For some, making and keeping connections is a natural thing. For others, it takes effort and energy to connect and engage on a regular basis. When Craig sits down with Scott, the two talk about how a disaster forced Scott to reach out to his clients and establish a connection, how listening is the key to building connections and why Craig is so bad at maintaining long-term connections with clients. They also get into why Craig feels LinkedIn requests from strangers are just ways for people to spam his connections.
You can learn more about Scott at his website http://ideacharger.com and listen to his podcast The Success Charger Podcast with Scott Cooksey where Craig recorded an episode on negativity.

As many of you know, Craig is a member of the National Speakers Association (NSA) and each year attends the national convention. This year, the convention (named Influence 2015) will be at the Marriott Wardman Park from July 18th through July 20th. Tami and past guest Brian Walter are this year’s convention chairs and have they got a convention for you! With a load of breakout sessions, including Craig’s “Podcasting Your Influence: Using Podcasts To Share Your Expertise” on Sunday the 19th at 4:30PM (Craig’s going to record it for a future podcast), the convention will also offer great keynoters like Jeffrey Hayzlett and the one and only George Takei!
Tami and Craig go over the entire schedule, highlighting sessions like Friday night’s comedy night “The Speaker Games!”, a great opening session with the XY Fast Five, Celebrity Sunday, Money Monday and Influence Tuesday. It’s all capped off with a gala CPAE Awards Banquet (email Craig if you have an extra ticket!). There are tons of things to learn as Tami and Craig cover it all in this podcast.
Don’t forget the Cigar PEG charity auction on Monday the 20th. Head over to cigarpeg.com/join to become a member and get your ticket into this exciting night that benefits the NSA Foundation.

Abby Kohut (@Absolutely_Abby on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss job searches. It seems everyone is always looking for a job and with the downturn a few years back, more people were unexpectedly looking for a job. That’s when Abby Kohut (Absolutely Abby to her fans) started a crusade to get 1 million people hired. But, you can’t get hired until you find another job. Being gainfully employed full time for the past 12 years, Craig is completely out of the loop in the job search department. Times have changed and some issues that weren’t a reality when he last looked for work are coming to the forefront. Abby and Craig discuss where to look for a job, why networking is the most important part of your job search, interview techniques and how social media can really mess things up for you (even though they say it shouldn’t). They also discuss the hidden job market, if potential employers prefer you to already have a job and if they prefer whether you’ve had that job for awhile or not!

Thom Singer (@thomsinger on Twitter) returns to talk about his new podcast Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do with host Craig Price. It seems podcasting guests are few and far between so when Craig heard Thom was starting up a new podcast dealing with entrepreneurs, he knew he needed to get Thom back on the show. The two discuss Thom’s show, how podcasting has opened up his network (even though he’s a master at it!) and what he’s learned talking to entrepreneurs. Craig also shares his insights into why Thom’s podcast has rocketed atop the iTunes (a good show is only one reason) and some of the ways Thom could use his podcast along side his Conference Catalyst program. If you’re on the fence about podcasting for your business you have to listen to this episode.

Michael Goldberg (@MEGoldberg on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss convention networking at the upcoming NSA Convention. The two talk about their involvement in the 2014 National Speakers Association’s annual conference where Craig will be recording a LIVE Reality Check podcast on July 2nd at 3:30pm CST in the Learning Lounge and Michael will be presenting two first-timers sessions with Glenna Salsbury at 2pm on June 29th and 7:30am (yikes!) on June 30th. They talk about the feeling of overwhelming many new attendees get at such a large conference, Michael’s involvement in the conference “Buddy” program, how to effectively follow up after the conference and why Craig refers to aspects of the convention as the Star Wars Cantina. They also discuss the great charity they both are a part of: Cigar PEG and why Michael is the de facto bartender for the infamous Cigar PEG suite (think networking!). A great listen for any attendee, be it a veteran or newbie.

Thom Singer (@thomsinger on twitter) returns to prep Craig on his networking skills for this year’s National Speaker Association’s Annual Convention (#NSA12). Thom is in for a tough time as Craig prefers not meeting new people, being alone and driving strangers away with his snarky wit. Thom explains some of the bad habits both new and veteran attendees fall into and how to make the most of any conference or meeting.
Thom is known at the “Conference Catalyst” and can be found at www.ThomSinger.com.
