Episode 49: Show Notes

Scaling UP! Nation!, you know that I believe you get out of our industry what you put into our industry.  This is my normal response to when someone asks me why I train others, why I volunteer for trade organizations and especially why I do this podcast. I truly believe that you should teach what you know. Educate yourself and you get smarter, teach what you know, and you get even smarter (because a teacher needs to know content better than a student) and the person you are teaching gets smarter. Did you see what just happened in that scenario? The industry of that particular topic just got better. Continue Reading

Just think back to when you had an issue with something at a place of business, it’s impossible not to see how core values are applied if you look for it. Observing this is one of my favorite things to do.  Continue Reading

Episode 43: Show Notes  

Did you know we all have something in common?  Well, I’m willing to bet that we have many things in common but the one I want to focus in on is we all start something new as someone new to starting that something. I know that is not very profound, but it’s true. In my career I have been concerned about how someone would view my presentation or recommendation because I was: too new, too young, too…  Continue Reading
