David ‘D. Fish’ Fisher on the Convergence of Old-School Sales Skills and e-Commerce

[Listen and Profit Now™]

If you could cross the late, great, sales coach Zig Ziglar – a master of face-to-face relationship selling and networking – with Gary Vaynerchuk, the digital marketing and social-media pioneer – what you’d get would think and act an awful lot like David J.P. Fisher

David, who everyone calls “D. Fish,” is an expert on the convergence of old-school sales skills and 21st Century e-commerce. His “hyper-connected” approach to sales allows businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed by building and leveraging their networks and personal influence.

D. Fish combines nuanced strategy and real-world tactics to guide individuals and organizations as they navigate and leverage the evolving landscape of sales.

As he tells Monday Morning Radio host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, D. Fish’s home office overlooks a vast cemetery in Evanston, IL. His view serves as a potent daily reminder of what happens to companies that fail to keep up with the times.

This Filmmaker Plans to Enlist an Army of Partners to Host Local Screenings

Graham Meriwether and ‘Farmers for America’ Aim to Inspire a New Generation of Farmers

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Filmmaker Graham Meriwether is hoping his newest documentary, Farmers for America, four years in the making, will help inspire a new, younger, generation of farmers to replace the rapidly aging population of growers. The film, narrated by TV star Mike Rowe, had its national premier last week.

Rather than distribute Farmers for America the conventional way, Graham is partnering 50-50 with entrepreneurs and others who host local screenings of the film and split ticket sales with him. Already, more than 600 people have signed up be partners.

This week, Graham shares his vision and unique financing strategy with Wizard Academy alumnus Lem Lewis, who along with Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart produce the popular rural business podcast, RANCHCAST with Lem Lewis. Rotbart says he may be a hayseed when it comes to farming, but even a yokel can see that farmers and city dwellers alike can harvest some organic business insights from Graham Meriwether.

Ask Better Questions; Listen Smarter; and Transform Your Business

A Give-and-Take Conversation with Will Wise, Co-Founder, We!™

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Will Wise isn’t a journalist, although host and veteran editor Dean Rotbart swears he’d make one fine correspondent. That’s because Wise has mastered the art of asking insightful questions – those designed to reveal truths that often go unspoken.

Wise uses his ample probative skills to help companies – including GE, JetBlue, and Mead – transform their workplaces, by creating authentic connections and building trust with employees through well-thought dialogue.

Ten years in the making, Wise just published his first book, Ask Powerful Questions: Create Conversations that Matter, which not only covers how to ask the right questions, but how to listen to the answers, and what to do with them. 

He and Rotbart cross-examine one another in a battle of the inquisitors on this week’s Monday Morning Radio.

The UnBusiness Story Behind Chapel Dulcinea

A Special Episode Featuring Pennie and Roy H. Williams

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Sometimes the best business stories are UnBusiness stories.

The tale of Chapel Dulcinea is one of those, the world’s first and most popular free wedding chapel – launched in 2005 by Wizard Academy co-founders Pennie and Roy H. Williams – and playing host to more than 1,000 new unions each and every year.

Pennie and Roy, who were married with hardly a dime to their name in 1976, envisioned Chapel Dulcinea as a sanctuary to help cash-strapped couples take their vows and first steps forward as a married couple.

This week, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart joins Pennie and Roy on a special edition of Monday Morning Radio, to share the wonder and magic of a dream wedding chapel come true. What’s your UnBusiness dream?
