A Good Word, From the Right Influencer, Can Work Magic for Your Product or Service

Author Greg Jameson on Ways to Get Others to Market and Sell on Your Behalf

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Getting a popular entertainer, athlete, author, blogger, or YouTuber to say nice things about your business or products is a powerful way to generate sales.

Greg Jameson, author of The Influencer Effect, specializes in helping companies identify the influential men and women who can provide them the greatest endorsement leverage, and then negotiating terms with those influencers.

As Greg explains to host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, an effective influencer needn’t have a household name. Anyone with a loyal following, no matter how small, can often produce over-sized results for the companies and products that they endorse.

Forget Warren Buffett: It’s Big Mama and Biggie Who Should Be Your Financial Role Models

Timolin Langin Teaches How to Live Like a Millionaire…On Any Budget

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Some people look to Warren Buffett and Mark Cuban for investment wisdom. Timolin Langin looked to Big Mama and Biggie – her grandmother and great-grandmother –  for her financial sensibilities.

Timolin was born and raised in Mississippi to sharecroppers and cooks – none of whom graduated high school. Yet leveraging the wisdom imparted to her by Big Mama and Biggie, she became a school teacher, and then a real estate investor, author, world traveler, and ultimately a millionaire.

In her book, Mind Over Money, Timolin says anyone, on any budget, can live like a millionaire when they dedicate themselves to her wise saving and spending strategies. This week she shares her five-step program for achieving greater financial well-being with host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, who may not in fact be a multi-millionaire, but after talking to Timolin already thinks like one.

Brian Harman Relies on Storytelling, Humor, and a Splash of Vulgarity to Teach Leadership

His Book Aims to Help the Next Generation of Owners and Bosses

[Listen and Profit Now™]

Brian Harman works in supply chain management for a large multi-national pharmaceutical company. He relies on storytelling, humor, and a splash of vulgarity to instruct lousy business leaders in the art of leadership excellence.

Stepping aside from his day-to-day responsibilities, Brian recruited family and friends to help him write, publish, and promote a book he hopes will inspire a new generation of leaders who aren’t burdened with the bad habits of existing owners and bosses.

Brian’s book, How to Avoid a Leadersh*t, co-written with his cousin, Stephanie M. Taglianetti, uses an expletive in its title, just like the enormously popular bestseller, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*uck.

If foul language – or innovative thinking – offends you, host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart suggests you skip this week’s episode.

How to Rise to the Occasion, When the Occasion Calls for Impromptu Remarks

Communications Expert and Author Judith Humphrey Shares Her Strategies

[Listen and Profit Now™]

“All the world’s a stage,” Shakespeare wrote. But what happens when you find yourself on the “stage” – whether it’s a business meeting, a news conference, an elevator full of colleagues, or even a platform such as Twitter – and no one has handed you a script?

 

In her new book, Impromptu: Leading in the Moment, Judith Humphrey teaches business leaders, owners, and entrepreneurs how to prepare to speak spontaneously and win over their audiences. But can she talk the talk? 

 

Host and Reputation Coach Dean Rotbart, a one-time Colorado state high school extemporaneous speakers champ, puts Judith to the test this week, as he probes her ability to ad-lib answers to some of his toughest questions.

Is It Time to Trust Your Instincts, Open Your Eyes, and Leap to a New Career?

Author Mike Lewis Explains How and When to Jump

[Listen and Profit Now™]

In his new book, When to Jump, Mike Lewis profiles 44* men and women who enjoyed successful careers in one field, and then made the leap to something entirely different. 

There is the journalist who enlisted in the marines; the public relations executive who became a Bishop in the Episcopal Church; the commercial banker who became a brewery owner – and Mike Lewis, himself, a rising star at Bain Capital, who at age 24 walked away to pursue his dream of being a professional squash player.

Mike says that jumping is more about the pursuit of your life’s dream career, than necessarily achieving it. As he confesses to host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart, his squash dreams didn’t pan out as he’d hoped, but they did lead him to a new career as founder and CEO of When to Jump, a global community of like-minded individuals who share their stories, attend events, take courses, and pursue a variety of other learning opportunities.

On this week’s Monday Morning Radio, Mike details how and when to “Jump.” 

*The 45th Jumper who appears in Mike’s book is Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who jumped from government to Google, before landing happily at a startup run by then 23-year-old Mark Zuckerberg. Sheryl, who writes the book’s preface and has been the keynote at Mike’s When to Jump conferences, is Mike’s second cousin.
