22-Year-Old Los Angeles Poet to Perform at Inauguration
"Old L a poet Amanda Gorman was asked to write a poem and recited at Joe Biden's inauguration tomorrow. But you probably don't know that Gorman, who became the nation's first national youth poet laureate a few years ago shares Personal connection with the president elect. Like Biden, who spoken openly about having studied as a child, Gorman has had to overcome a childhood speech impediment. She had difficulty saying certain letters of the alphabet. The letter R was especially tough, which caused her to have to constantly self edit. I don't want to say girls can change the world, but I cannot say Many of the letters in that statement, so I'd say things like young woman can shape the globe. Gorman says her inauguration poem was partly inspired by the insurrection of the U. S Capitol earlier this month. Here's a preview of that poem, which is called the Hill We Climb Allow Democracy can be periodically delayed. It can never be permanently defeated. In this truth in this faith we trust for while we have our eyes on the future history has its eyes on us. And when she steps to the microphone tomorrow, Gorman will continue a tradition that includes luminaries such as Robert Frost in Maya Angelou, who is one of her personal heroes, and crowds could soon

"And it will be better tomorrow as we're reminded again and again by the late Dr Maya Angelou. Meanwhile, I suspect we would get the same thought. From a guy who was in the thick of things in Washington yesterday. Basically locked down in the House gallery in the U. S. Capitol under siege. And a guy who joined us already this week, Congressman Tim Walberg is back to talk about the experience, Congressman A Good morning. Welcome back. Are you there? Cause I don't hear him. Really Well, you know, you know. Wait, wait, wait, wait. Start from the beginning because we didn't hear you at all. If I had taken myself off Mute s, I would have coughed it cost in here. I didn't feel fine, but it's you know, I'm almost feel like Paul W. In bed last night 33 a m. I guess this morning 3 A.m. and then now up How do you I don't know how you do this, but, uh, we're glad to be with you this morning. Yeah, it was. It was. It was a terrible day yesterday for part of it. It was a great day for other parts of it. We We started out doing the things that Constitution requires Electoral college counting of votes. Getting into debates about objections to certain of the state's votes on then everything broke out crazy, but I'll go to the end we we went back into session and completed. Task of counting the votes yesterday. And I think that was a demonstration to the world as well as to, uh, sadly, the people that chose to use their First Amendment liberties In a way that we don't do in the United States and cause destruction and death. And a lot of pain and frustration in the process, But in the end America came through and I'm glad to be part of it. And I'm glad we did show the world that even though there was a momentary blip You got back to doing what you were supposed to do. You were not prevented from doing What you were supposed to do, and you you accomplished what you set out to do in the There's been a lot of confusion this year between what's a protest and what's a riot, and I blame Much of the mainstream media for forgetting the word riot and thinking that everything was a quiet to protest. They right away. Thought of even the quiet protest is being a riot. But when you cross a line As people did you are then writing and it's not right anywhere, but especially in the United States Capitol so there should be no confusion. All of that should be pretty clear to people. And and we move on from there, and that's what we're doing. We will have in the president's own word who called for peace early in the morning this morning. And said, they'll be in orderly transition of power. Which is good to hear him say, because that's what people Needed to hear all along as difficult loss, as it might have been, and with all of the allegations that are still raw, and who knows what went on and where, but the bottom line is We stand for democracy. Around the world we did yesterday morning at this time, and we do this morning at this time. Well said Well said. We are a republic Republican form of democracy. That means we're constitutional democracy. We're not just a democracy that says majority wins, that we've taken great consideration to make sure that we all have a say we don't have an opportunity. And the rights of the majority as well as the minorities are protected. And what we saw yesterday. Um I think was the culmination of a lot of emotions that went on. And maybe some rabble roses assed well. But in the end in the end, um We move forward, and I was delighted this morning to hear that the president said there will be orderly transmission. Uh, the transition transition. You see, you know, you said in the beginning. I don't know how you do this. I didn't know what you were talking about the first but I know what you're talking about. How do you get two hours? Three hours of sleep. Come on the air and makes sense. I'm not sure I do make sense. But I understand how difficult this is for you. Hey, e. I appreciate that. Let me ask you before we leave. Um uh, since I don't have an opportunity to was speak to too many people who were there. Locked down in the chambers. What was it like from your standpoint? Well, it started out much like what you'd hear on a state of the Union address in recent years, you'd hear a demonstration noise going on somewhere in the capital, and normally it's 2030. People that are demonstrating are doing a sit down that type of thing and Banging drums or whatever. And you hear that, But this could began to get closer and closer and we were going on with our debate. Constitutional Abate said. It was over their chambers. We were in ours. And all of a sudden the sergeant at arms and the Capitol. Police began telling us various reports. We we recess for short periods of times, went back into the bait. And then all of sudden they came and said, Listen, we want you to pull your gas mask out for underneath your chairs. And have them in your lap already. And if we ask you to get to the floor, get the floor because there is some protection with the backs of our seats..

Today you may stand upon me but do not hide your face so it is definitely a heck of a poem and a a pretty Pretty smart one for inauguration. Just this is one of my poems.

"Anne johnson able the fourth which is funny. Because i don't give a lot of credence to ethel ethological things okay. I don't but i've always had this weird experience to where women who aries. I always seem to have fabulously get along with them unperfect. Perfect friendships all my entire life. So even though. I never got a chance to meet my. I always felt that looking at her birthday. Because i was born april third that we probably would get along fabulously just because of that. I don't know why now. I never had any romantic relationships. On notions anybody who areas is women but the fact that there were areas some seem to make some kind of cosmic connection. I know it's putting something else all right. So she's a she's a memoir list The only writer unknown those the road seven autobiographies and we'll talk about that and of course of rights activists she wrote a number of of of books plays a essays number of books of poetry. She wrote some plays as she was in some some movies like fifty years. She got like over fifty honorary degrees from different places around the country in the world. The how big i Hit i get you say. On autobiography level would be I know why the courage bird sings. Nineteen sixty nine which is four years after i was born okay and She wrote a great deal about About her life and she wrote in in a different type of style than people will use to on on writing autobiographies. you know. I'm always for changing. Something around fits what you're trying to do. There's nothing wrong with that. That's called creativity. No-one says you have to go around right in the exact same story. Same short story average ruined for two twenty years all the same poem or anything else so she did that differently. She got some criticism for that because they felt that she was fiction. Leising some of her life and also being put together that type of style and that kind of autobiography but to me. That's silly okay. The reason why they'd say that's silly this first of all. There's nothing wrong changing things around. Good that you should do that as a writer i. It's it's definitely a sign of a of a creative spirit. Okay second maya angelou is different than any of us. Okay you sit down thirty forty fifty years later. Whatever to write down something. Are you going to have every notion and every fact no by by this does accident. You're gonna you're going to accidentally officialize things. Because they are the best recollection of your memory. So i don't. I mean when they say that about her and to me. It's almost like the saying that. Somehow she's making up stuff while she's line something. I i just find that nonni route an unacceptable but it's just not very practical to say that you know how you can remember everything. She lived a very interesting and fascinating. Life listen to a job. She had before she really got into creative stuff on a full-time basis. Okay see was a fry cook. At one point another point she was a sex worker. That's nice word. Same prostitute while then. She became a night port club perform and then he was a cast member and poor. gm best which. I could definitely see She was accord aimed for the southern christian leadership conference big in civil rights. She went on become a correspondent for egypt and ghana. When the one that was going to during the decolonization of africa says he got involved in that so at one point she was actress. Riders used directors who produced a number plays movies and public television programs k then.

How to Give Visitors a Wow! Experience
"Priscilla rice and I'm coming to you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of BNI. Dr. Ivan misner. Hello, How are you? And where are you this week? I am in addition to many recorded visits all around the world. I am Live this week June for a regional compact. In event, so I'm in Canada this week. That sounds all right. Now also this week I have a guest this is his fifth visit to as a guest to be an iPod cast and his name is Mark Applebaum. Mark has been would be and I for over 15 years. He's been a director consultant for more than five years. He's long and successful chapters in the b&i Utah and North Region Marx married to his amazing life. He says Tiffany for almost twenty years with two children Ryan and Tom Jenna and one of the things that Mark loves to do is to teach chapter members how to give visitors a wow experience. I can't think of anything better than that. Welcome back Mark mm contest. Thank you so much. I've it's great to be back. What's good to have you here? And you want to start by talking about making visitors female wanted so the floors your home. Well, thank you, you know a little background of where my y about this topic came up his growing up. I grew up back east in New York and my dad owned a pet store or at the time when I was growing up and I worked for my dad for many years and my dad was the world to me and he struggled a lot financially. So if a customer ever left his store, but happy it really affects his livelihood. So I was did my best to if a customer wasn't having a positive experience at least have them leads as happy as possible and you know in vni every visitor is not only a potential customer to be an eye, but it's a potential customer for ourselves. It's a their potential referral partners for ourselves more could lead us to potential customers or referral Partners. So how we treat our visitors. It's just imperative. So this podcast, you know, if you're a visitor host. It's not just meant for the visitor house out there. It's really meant for every single member to take on the mindset of a visit. Post because we all play a role in that visitor experience and it's in the future success of our chapter know let me just add one thing to you real quick. I know if you know this, but when I started back we didn't have visitor hosts. One of the things I said was that if you invited a visitor you had to be there host and honestly that didn't work as well. So because not everybody's created equal as a host wage and we did create visitor host. But that was my initial concept with b and I was that everybody had to be a host especially the person that invited them and I love the story to share in in givors gained about the visitor you sent to a chapter who ended up going to a different chapter who's the chapter that actually designed to visit our house program. That's either story. So everyone listening think about the region your chapters in and the amount of chapters you have in your region and just here in the Utah North Region. We have fifty three chapters and just in the Salt Lake area we have over 2,000 chapter wage. So depending on what what a visitor does they really in a twenty-mile radius twenty-minute radius. They have a wide variety of of chapters to choose from. So if you if the for the people if you take a moment and think about your chapter and the culture that it has now imagine for a moment every chapter in your region met at the same time the same day in the same location as all the other chapters sure that's not possible. But imagine it was for a moment. Yeah, I would a visitor choose your chapter over all the other ones and you know, it really comes down to what the poet Maya Angelou says best people will forget what you said people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel. Yes, what a visitor feel welcomed and important. They're more likely to want more of that and yep. That's why we all play a role in that positive experience. Whether you're the visitor host or not your contribution to your chapter and that in your involvement with how the visitor enters the room and Enterprise is in call and and welcoming them really makes such a difference. So a few examples of ideas that members and chapters can take on that could be very beneficial to them. The first is off when the visitor is already registered in BNI connect. The leadership team will receive an email saying so-and-so is registered to to visit on this particular day. Right? Well, the idea would be that the president of the chapter soon after getting that email sends a personal email to that visitor and also on that email they copy on the email other members in the chapter that are complementary to the visitor and then purpose of all that is 1 to let the visitor know how excited they are to meet them to to give them any instructions. They they may need to you know, show up but yep. To really let the visitor know that these other members could be great power Partners together with that visitor and so a great success story. I'd like to share is about three years ago as a director. One of my roles was placing visitors helping visitors find Chapters and I was working with one professional and his business was custom mens clothing and because of his schedule I took it into three different chapters and the third chapter he went to the president at the time Steve level who's the business attorney in the chapter was phenomenal at doing this and so he sent this personal email to this month custom clothing gentleman, and he see see the financial adviser and the family law attorney on on the email who both of them also replied to the custom clothing gentleman saying Thursday, we looks so we look forward to meeting you we too could use help with their own wardrobe and that visitor ended up visiting and a couple of weeks later. He ended wage. Joining and a couple of weeks later. I called them to say to figure out why he picked that chapter over the other two and in his words. He said that that chapter had an unfair Advantage because without one month then, you know connected to the members before they even met them that he wanted to join a group and three years later. He still a member of the group

Emotionally, we have spiritual processes, intellectual ones, and so on. How did you become interested in doing the work you do today? Well, it was a long and Berry unexpected journey and I think it really started for me at Howard University by alumni really supported me feel seen in loves and space where black women aren't always valued our university boosted lifted me up. So it was there that I countered Zora Neil hurston and Tony Morrison and my Angelo, all incredible authors that allowed me to see myself more clear in allowed needs to really start to think about who I wasn't the world in the work that I wanted to do, and originally I majored in journalism and I minored in geology and I was always surrounded by just incredible people that motivated me whether it's my professors my best friends I just always had a beautiful reflection to someone saving mealy you can do this and whether it was reading pursuing journalism, I, always find courage is supported and I think that's the main takeaway from my spirit's is becoming not. Yet or do serve the festival and so many other names. It's having a support system being passionate and being able to identify what your vision is. Jahns I've been able to say without a doubt that my purpose to really be of service to other black women and help uplift them in a leary space yawns I gained so much joy from that. I didn't know that was what I was going to be doing when I was a freshman in college, but it just organically happened as I started pursuing my career. Network in meeting other people it just services evolved this beautiful way. So years later, we well red black girl but I know that seed was planted on campus our university I, like fat because and maybe this is just my own personal perspective of going to a Pwi a predominantly white institution that it's not to say that you don't have professors that encourage and cultivate you your skills, your interest but I wonder if if it's something about going to an HP, see you that it's like Hashtag black excellence all around and then you. Just really entrenched in that moment of Oh, you dig Tony Morrison to, and it's not like we have one week where we covered Tony Morrison then that's it. No, it's extends like it's like the whole life cycle like I think back when I was a freshman I taught at a school that was called the Maya Angelou Public Charter school and I don't think I could have done that anywhere else but in DC as a student at Howard University and those moments gave me again the sense of purpose of helping. Other children and working in space with other black students and working with black professors just around we twenty four, seven that I didn't have I didn't have a chance to second-guessed took away. Any doubt I had when I was at a randomly whites all as a high school student and then when I graduated I, just have the sense of I mean in.

A Short Reading for Self-Reflection With the Work of Maya Angelou.
"Everyone who other week here we go. Last week so busy for me I don't know what it was like for you all, but I want to give a big shout out to the women for sobriety people who put on this incredible gathering last weekend their annual conference and I was lucky enough to participate as one of their keynote speakers as well as sit on a panel and talking about ref- with two friends of mine one very new ginger rather and Veronica Valley it was such a great experience, and if you all haven't yet looked into women for sobriety, I highly suggest it. As I approached what to do for the podcast today. I recognize that I probably need a little bit of a break. A little time to slow down. And I thought I might try what some of my friends have been suggesting in. That is to do a little bit of like. Meditative. Reading for you all. I thought I'd combine it with some of the things that I've been. Doing for myself, and that is reading some poetry and some essays around what we're going through right now as a nation and I'm using that reading time that downtime that introspection time to get closer to my honesty about. My racism how I look at myself how I've looked at the world have looked at others into come closer to that honest relationship with myself so that I can speak honestly with you, and other people and I kept coming back to my Angelou. She has always been a voice in my head, while I shouldn't say always I probably didn't know about her until she. told me about her, but like many of us her soothing tone, her wise words have truly worked their way into the fabric of my life so today. Sit Back, relax. And, I thought I'd two of her most famous poems to you? The first is caged bird. A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the or orange sunrays. And dares to claim the sky, but a bird that stocks down his narrow cage can sell them see through his bars of rage. His wings are clipped. His feet are tied, so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trail of things unknown, but longed for still, and his tune is heard on the distant. For the cage bird sings. A freedom. The free thinks of another breeze. And the trade winds soft through the citing trees and the fat worms waiting on the dawn bright lawn. Any names the sky is owned. But a cage bird stands on the grave of dreams. His shadow shouts on a nightmare scream. His wings are clipped and his feet are tied. So he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trail of things unknown, but longed for still. And his tune is heard on the distant hill. For the cage bird sings, afrita. The second poem I chose is still I rise I hope I do it justice? I am not a black woman, but I do empathize with the pain that I hear and the strength that I know that comes from this poem. You may write me down in history with your bitter twisted lies. You may trod me in the very dirt. But, still like dust I rise. Does my sassine is upset you. Why are you beset with gloom? 'CAUSE, I walk like I've got oil wells pumping in my living. Just like moons, and just like sons with the certainty of tides, just like hopes springing high. Still I rise. Did you want to see me? Broken bowed head and lowered is shoulders falling down like tears drops weakened by my sofa cries. Does. My harness offend you, don't you? Take it awful hard cause. I laugh like I've got gold mines. Digging in my own backyard. You may shoot me with your words. You may cut me with your eyes. You may kill me with your hateful nece, but still like air I rise.

"Best spoken word album for on the pulse of morning. And so over this past weekend My mother actually just had a birthday on April fourth. And that's also Mi- Angeles Birthday so in my Andrew happens to be my mother's favourite poet and so just thinking about you know my mom's birthday and Maya Angelou's birthday and what's currently happening in our nation and just you know wanting to do something a little special so I'm going to actually dedicate this episode to my mom as well as To my Angelou and then I also found out that April is national poetry month which I did not know itself So I feel like this is just all in alignment so before I start the poem just to kind of lay a little bit of foundation. Oh Allot Or I should say the theme throughout this particular poem you will hear the rock the river and the tree which are all metaphors used for the character of God in the Bible so I think it definitely has a nice spiritual undertone and I hope that.
Michaela Haas on Turning Bad Breaks into Breakthroughs
"Michaela. It is so great to have you on untangle today. Thank you so much for being here. Thanks for having me. I've been looking forward to this awesome so I loved your book bouncing forward. Yeah and the subtitle of the book is transforming bad. Breaks into breakthroughs and this just stirred up so much for me because so much of your work is about resilience and forgiveness and use the term post traumatic growth verses post traumatic stress for example. And I really WANNA help our our listeners. Understand why resilience is so important and why some of US fall apart while others of US thrive based on your stories exactly. That's really the question. That has intrigued me for a very very long time. And I as a journalist I meet a lot of people who've been through traumatic experiences and I always wondered why some people were able to deal with it better or heal from it. And even thrive while others fell apart so this question became deeply personal when I got severely ill in my twenties and I was actually bedridden for about eight months and it was pretty scary because the doctors didn't know what was wrong with me and if I would ever get better and I was Nodar Cillian and I did fall apart. So this really sparked the personal part of the journey to see well other people have been through things much worse than what I've experienced. So are there things I can learn to become more resilient? Are there things that I can use to nourish myself when I'm down and the book bouncing forward is really the result of this because I got to speak to? People Admire like Maya Angelou who actually gave the book it's titled. She talks about bouncing forward going. Beyond what the Naysayer said or people like temple grandin the autistic pioneer or a paralyzed surfer called Jesse Bill. Our and I asked them all the same questions. What helped you. How did you make it through? And in the course of this research I came across this amazing new science of Post Traumatic Growth. And of course everybody has heard of post traumatic stress but much to my surprise. I learned today is really a lot of information about how we cannot only heal from traumatic experiences and challenges but even use them to grow and so this is what really fascinates me and this is why I wrote bouncing forward to share this research with anybody who experiences challenges in life and who doesn't right. Doesn't I think you have a statistic in your book that eighty nine percent of US experience at least one traumatic event in our life and with post traumatic growth. Is there sort of a depth of experience or negative experience that you have that makes it almost impossible to come back or in your research? Have you found any differences between how bad experience actually is in how easy or hard it is to come back thing one of the things? I've most surprising is that it is not what happened to us. That determines how severe trauma is I've interviewed a chapter about. My friend Coco Schumann. Who WAS AN AUSCHWITZ? Maya Angelou was abused and raped as an eight year old. So I've come to understand that there is nothing that we cannot heal from now. Of course it doesn't mean that it doesn't leave scars and actually what determines if can heal from a trauma isn't so much what happens to us that how much support we get. How much incharge feel how much control they can take situation? How safe we feel how much we lost in very very much. Our mindset. 'cause. I'm I've been a practicing Buddhist for more than twenty years now and what actually got me into Buddhism was mine counters with Tibetan refugees in Asia. And they had traumatic life stories. They've often witnessed family members being killed or tortured or they've been in prison or they've been tortured and even when some psychologists were surprised to find that only one of nine hundred refugees they interviewed was diagnosed with Ptsd and all the others had found ways through that practice of compassion and meditation and Mindfulness to work through their pain and work through their suffering. And this is where I think the idea of post traumatic growth is so helpful because as soon as we can find any purpose in while we go through then we actually have a much much better chance of healing from it and this is something that no matter what our specific traumas children set. The fundamental question is not if we encounter suffering because we all do but how we work with suffering so that leads to awakening the hard in going beyond the habitual views and actions to perpetuate suffering. So this is really the core. A founding forward. Yeah it's a really. It's a complicated idea. I mean it seems simple on the one hand and complicated on the other because looking back at your story so your bedridden with an undetectable illness at the time for eight months. And you're struggling with that. Is it because you didn't have the tools yet to become more resilient or to accept this as an opportunity I mean? Is there any way to wall? Were inside the opportunity to look at the gift of that without getting too sort of Wu about that because these experiences are horrible. I met a few people who were able to do it on the spot but I think there are rare. Most people need at least a few years or several years too with some distance to look back and see it as a growing experience and I think one of the worst things you can say to somebody who's in the midst of it things like. Oh it's GonNa get better or who knows what it's good for people. Hey these phrases and that's really not what poster medic growth means and actually the only way we can grow as to allow struggle but one thing I can say that helped me and that I think helps anybody who's going through a tough time is mindfulness meditation. Because I think that we have no choice but to learn to stay present and running away as tempting as it is or drinking. The pain away or taking painkillers or whatever particular styles of avoiding it. It just never works. None of these methods works. So mindfulness meditation is now you so widely in the army and businesses in trauma therapy and I founded crucial now. I head already started meditating before I became ill but I had to realize that I was more like a good weather meditators. I use it to make myself feel good and I had to learn to go deeper with that and to stay present even when the going gets tough even when there is physical pain even when there is emotional pain to stay present and rushy Bernie glassman because also In bouncing forward is well if you think about it. We're always in the present moment anyway. We can't be anywhere else. It's just a matter of allowing ourselves to actually be there and be present with whatever happens. Of course it's a practice at work on for the rest of my life. Yeah I think we all will and I think a lot of people who have experienced trauma. Let's say yet in their lies. Don't really understand that. These practices that you cultivate pre trauma are going to be important for anything that you deal with in life. And how do you inspire people to really understand that these practices will be your if you will forgetting through things? Yes obviously you want to practice meditation or other. Resources full resilience. Ideally practice them when the sun is shining so that we have them at our disposal when the going gets tough and one of the things. I find most encouraging. Is that actually in the mindfulness tradition that I trained in we can use happiness and pain to transform ourselves to open a hard to become more compassionate rather than closing down to sharing was really going on. We don't have to wait for trauma to start but it's useful to prepare ourselves because most of us not only experienced one trauma in life but five to six actually and it's not just the war in Iraq that can be traumatic but a divorce can be traumatic and illness can be traumatic surgery. A car crash thinks that happened to pretty much all of us and I think if it was up to me resilience would be taught in schools. Mindfulness Meditation would be taught in schools because kids learn about it if they applied. They grow up so much stronger because resilience is like a muscle if we work at it. If we train in it then we become strong and we become more resilient and the earlier we start or if we have daily practice the more useful it will be to us when we do encounter a severe challenge or
Graham Brown: How To Influence, Engage, And Create Change Through Storytelling
"In my leadership in the exponential era book one of the storytelling techniques. That I teach in workshops and I share it in the book is the three box. Transformation story inspired somewhat by Charles Dickinson Christmas cow. But I want to go into that just now because Christmas is already passed but just know that there are three boxes and this is how you can tell a story. A good example is when I came to Singapore and I moved to Singapore from Japan two years ago. I could have told people what I was doing there. People ask me. What are you doing here? Graham why are you in Singapore? I'm Ron and tell them what my job ause. I told him what I was going to build you see. I told them that. I came to Singapore to build podcast studio and a podcast business and that Saturday after I moved to Singapore. I put the call out linked in and said I'm going to build a podcast. Judea if you WANNA come along and help me build this and up the acoustic tiles and put in the wiring. Setup the microphones Akon pay with anything apart from kindness memories. Good Times a beer. And a whole bunch of people turned up owning youtube people in Singapore at the time but twelve people turned up to help me build the studio. And that's the point. That's the power of story if I said to somebody when they asked me. What are you doing unless said Yeah I do podcasts. It's a missed opportunity. Robin tell people what you do. Tell them what you're going to build. When you tell stories about you business you can break it down like that. Break it down to three boxes past present future. Let's have a look at those. It's very simple. If you want to tell people about you'll business why you hear what you're selling. Break it down into the three boxes. And if you WANNA go deeper into this cycle the exponential leadership book which is free by the way you can go and get a xl dot org. But I give a plug at the end of this podcast anyway. So you don't forget it for now past present future past. Where have you come from? What is the mindset that brought you here and what is the mindset? Also that holds people back present. What is the shape of the business that you all today and future? What is the shape of the business that you want to become now? You may think this may work for for example. The startup she does is a fantastic sales tool for start of but also works with multi billion dollar enterprises a great example of this. I've seen Tony Fernandez. Who is the CEO of Airasia when he talks about the future of the quote Unquote Airline? He doesn't talk about in the context of we're an allied. He uses the equivalent of the three bucks technique which is passed all is the mindset. That's holding his back. Well the mindset. That's holding AirAsia. Back is we're in allied. We sow tickets. We sell seats and yet if they want to grow they can't go on with that mindset they have to change it they have to even sell competitive tickets. They have to sell whole bunch of other different services ancillary services everything from music to food president. What's the shape of the business that we all today was the structure in which we need to innovate well? We're an ally but yet we have this ecosystem of partners we have venture fund that's funding these policies future. What's the shape of the business that we want to become? We doesn't talk about becoming a better airline. He talks about becoming a digital to travel platform. So maybe you hear Tony Fernandez Talk. He tells the story of Airasia. Tudo which is the journey from being an Anna sold tickets to a digital travel platform. Because you know the problem is this is that the future doesn't belong to the airline that flies the most plane but the travel company that solves the most problems unless what it's about storytelling is about sharing the journey of you and your business why you hear and what you're trying to get to and you can use storytelling everywhere. You can use it when you sell when you post on social media. Notice the difference between just telling people is what we do or just telling people were doing this now or telling people we just on this the difference from that to telling story about it you'll engagements on social media will increase significantly unlike. Weiss this podcast. I've shared stories with. I could just have told you that. Storytelling is a powerful tool and here are three things that you need to know. But then it's not about that like Maya Angelou. The author once wrote people. Soon forget what you told them but over? S- remember how you made them feel so that my name's Graham Brown signing of hopefully I gave you some insights into the world of
