How to Overcome your Fear of Sales Calls with Nina Cooke
"What is holding us back? Nina from having more powerful and authentic sales conversations well, the one thing that I found held me back and has held back all my mind is their mindset. They seemed like is all the scary stuff out there? It's getting on the phone and having to talk about your price in your great product, and having to convince someone that they should be spending money with you and this affair about the prospect, saying no than all interested too expensive, or they need to think about it until we think is all coming from the outside, and that's what's scaring us, but actually are thinking thinking. We're creating moment by moment about. What we believe is going to happen on. That sells coal which fills us with fear. And up. What about biggest enemies that we makeup through our thinking is anticipation. We're anticipating house go. At. Such a big gap between US having been warring. How things actually are. When we buy into this big scary worry about how it's going to pan out. That's what makes us feel so scared is all coming from inside of us? Now I do have a question for you Nina de you have Karaoke and Scotland's I'm not prompt Scotland. I live near London Scottish dancing school, but we do have carried okay here. You Have Karaoke in England as well. Good because for me, this is always two quick things to is people across the board? They're scared to make those initial sales calls because like you said they have this anticipation. About how is GONNA go and They're filled with dread so I always tell people hey. Just do one call. Just do one call this week. That's it and what happens is they make that call? Because it's just one it's not like. Oh do one hundred calls today, which is very daunting. They do one like that was actually kind of easy and like to bring it around to like the actual conversation that have with people around Karaoke with this is. If you've ever been Karaoke Bar, you always see. There's like that one person that gets like pushed on stage by their friends. They don't WanNa, do it. They're terrified. They don't WanNa, do Karaoke and then they sing that song and like by the third bar? They are just like you. You, Know Adele? They're out there and they're singing there. Hardaway, then you literally can't get them off the stage and it's just sometimes breaking that ice. Realizing that is not nearly as scary as you're anticipating that it was so for me. That kind of comes back to mindset. So why is having the right mindset? Absolutely crucial for successful sales calls because we can think our way into being okay about having sales cools and taking away the fair, because everything is you know that we're seeing in the world where making up through thoughts and everyone has a unique perspective on the world, because there are seven billion or more unique thinkers in the world. Because! We are able to create thinking because we're the crates. Is Thinking bothered than the some possible thoughts? We are able to change our thinking and it's it's amazing. We have this. Incredible Gift of free thought that we can use to Crato reality and most located. We don't pay any attention because a busy. Reacting furiously to was on outside of US and eat a big sky, and anxious and overwhelmed, and yet we forget we have this amazing palace superpower. When we can change our thinking about anything. It changes our feelings, and it can just bring up so much. Courage and resilience and you'll. Writer is about taking action. I helped my clients to overcome. They block so they can take action in their business because we don't take action obviousness. No can't get kinds simplisafe. Semi. People scared. They're so scared off having conversation because they pay rejection. They worried about getting because when they get no. Those people are selling the services products, and when they get the take it, Brady Pass, nate and they feel that being passed rejected who they are is being rejected by the prospect, and that could fill a berry berry painful. We'll do anything become to avoid that pain. At. That's why we're muddling up. The the failed to sales compensation will make you all up in ahead, and we think he is waded through with buying into the story, but if we would strip that story away at just say okay. What I'm going to do now is have a conversation with this person for good together. That's all that can happen and what we take away. All the meanings that were attached to this means again. No too terrible, they may think. They may think I'm too expensive. I believe with my value, and they believe my value either won't be stocked crazy with these stories around taking a acton. Than, we can easy took US outfit, but we see justice neutral action, which is a compensation. That's all. That's GONNA happen the. Pus might say yes. They may say nerve it fun and they. We're GONNA have another compensation off that. There are plenty more competition going to have when we strip away and just. Look at the neutrality if you lie. Then it will stop making us feel scared because this the meanings for attaching. To the action, thus causing the fan or the actual
Finding Simplicity in Complex Times With Julia Hobsbawm
"Good day. Now welcome to episode two hundred sixty two of live happy now. This is Paula Phelps. And I'd like to thank you for joining us once again this week. Today's world has become increasingly challenging. So it's fitting that this week we're talking about simplicity. How do you find more simplicity in a complex world? Well that's complicated in this week. Author and social commentator. Julia Hobsbawm looks at how we can live a simpler more creative and productive life. Her new book the simplicity. Principle six steps toward clarity in a complex world looks at how we can become more focused and less distracted. It's something we can all benefit from learning. So let's hear what she has to say Julia. Welcome to happy. Now thank you for having me a pleasure to be with you. Will you have a wonderful topic to talk to us about? And it's a great time to talk about it too because our lives seem very complex. And so you're talking to us about the simplicity principle. I guess to start. Can you tell me what made you want to take on this issue? Yes it is a funny time. I think a good time to be talking about symptoms tedious. When all lives became both Bruce Lee simple through lockdown but also a lot more complicated with the ramifications and implications of life next began writing seven. Right is go around. The connected age in the digital age in all the complications of that role. And I wrote a book fully connected and that book really seemed to resonate with people that were worrying about overload and then I thought well what's next for the people concerned about now. I thought it was in the end that people feel they have almost limitless choices. Limitless possibilities windows within windows and APPS and meetings and opportunities and the world was becoming so full of potential that it was also getting really complicated. And I thought what is it that we really want. We want all these opportunities. We want to be innovative and entrepreneurial allies at least I do but equally we want to not feel like we're going a bit nuts and the truth is I think we all did feel even before corona virus. That life was just really getting complicated spell. I wrote the simplicity principle to really say. Can IT BE SIMPLISAFE Walk to simplicity? Look like what's wrong with complexity in the first place and you know what a successful at like and that's what I came up with the book and why is complexity so difficult for us well in some ways complexities natural human beings a curious and you only have to look the way we like sports. That have complicated rules or hobbies have intricate ways in which you do something. Even a jigsaw puzzle is complicated. The human brain itself as an organism as about as complicated objects if you like in the world so there's nothing unnatural about impact city and everything from viruses and weather systems to ecosystems all complex. The problem I think comes down to the fact that the human being that we own all inside systems and jobs digital worlds. We're actually a bit more basic. We need sleep. We need dressed. We honked overload our brains without stressing out tuning out venturing out. And when we do that things happen which might not make light operate smoothly in other words. You want your pilot to fall asleep at the controls because they're exhausted or you don't want somebody to miss. As arguably authorities have missed the signs of endemic coming because s what the systems to warn each other and take action. Were too complicated so really. What I'm saying is at the very least. We need to balance on the spectrum. Between what is simple uncomplicated? But in an ideal world we would also give the human body and the human mind more of what we now know that needs which is simple straightforward reset nut chewing respecting the complexity respecting. That things are not straightforward. This is not a book about being simplistic. I think of things at simplistic is a bit like it's stupid. You know him wants to be stupid but simplicity is actually what sophisticated and the person who taught me. That actually was the late great my Angelo. Who I have the pleasure and privilege of working alongside for a good few years when I was a lot younger. And you want me to keep it simple. And she taught me that when you can connect with what you want and what you're Abou- and what's real and what matters sat is smart but it might also be simple as what I've tried to create is a bit of a blueprint for how to get to that simple. It's right in the middle of everything that super super complicated and one thing that makes your approach so unique and so effective is. There's a lot of books at tells. Here's how to simplify. Here's what you need to do but yours isn't just about that. You really look at how the world can open up for us when we live a simpler life all of that. So can you talk about the research that you did to discover these result? Yes I wanted to write a book. That was a like a bit of a business book on a business woman. And I'm a business writer and so I wanted to give it a magic number. Because lots of the best business books do say who it intense steps seven steps in the four ways in the and so on and I want to really structure it so that it was incredibly useful but I also wanted to a homage if you like to the philosopher and all of we're on a quest to find meaning and I think more and more we want meaning in our lives and so I thought how do I do this and so I alighted on the idea that I would write about simplicity and the human brain I would dig into the research around. Neuroscience and present some case studies at pupil could relate to as some data that says. Look this is why the human brain needs to keep it simple but I would also structure the book a little bit like a cross between a business book recipe. Frankly so that. If you like may acquire impatient to say all right I buy it. I'm into simplicity versus exte- when the line begin how do I stop that? It would be easy to pick up. The book died in and to find something within five minutes of. Reading the book that you could relate to and do that's what I want and to feedback Sephora has been quite good because I think that most of us now want just quick wins. You know we want hacks and simplicity as well as wanting to look at the deeper meaning and I think the coronavirus crisis is a really good moment to reset and rethink. What are we wanted to? How do we WANNA live? How's it going to be
Robert Kolker Discusses 'Hidden Valley Road'
"Us about the Galvin family. Let's start with the parents. Don and Mimi there. The subject of this book Don really lived through the greatest moments of the twentieth century. He was a World War Two veteran and the two of them put down roots in Colorado after the war and raised a family and had twelve children. The twelve children's span the baby boom the. I was born in nineteen forty five and the last in nineteen sixty five and they were known in Colorado Springs. Colorado is sort of a model family. Everybody knew the Galvin's with their twelve children and the oldest was a football star and dated the general's daughter at the Air Force Academy and all of the boys were Jock simplisafe on every hockey game. They played they were sort of legends at the time but nobody really knew that privately. The family was suffering that that in the end six of the twelve children were diagnosed schizophrenia. And it was at a time in America where there was a lot of shame and stigma around mental illness. Even more than there is now where the parents were often blamed and so it was a secret for as long as they keep it a secret and that just lead to more damage and the youngest children in the family really suffered the most from living in that house full of secrets before we get into their stories. It's interesting that you say everyone knew the Galvin's in Colorado Springs. My cousin actually grew up in an air force family in Colorado Springs and had never heard of them and so it might be that. She's she's younger. She's in her forties now. But I'm curious how you came across this family and their story because you're not from Colorado Springs. Yeah their heyday was in the early years of the academy. Right after the academy opened in the mid fifties that was when the family really started to rise up so they were best known in the late fifties. I know about them because the youngest two children the only girls were friends of a friend of mine. And for years. These two sisters Margaret and Lindsey had been talking with one another about the best way to let the world know about their family but they realized they couldn't do it alone. There was a lot about their family. They didn't even know. I mean a lot of these brothers were fifteen or twenty years older than they were and then of course a lot of the medical records. They didn't have access to and a lot of the stories that their parents told they couldn't necessarily verify on their own. A lot of legends going around and in fact they some of the worst things that happened to the family had been kept from them kept secret from them because they were too young when it happened and so finally they decided to turn to an independent journalists to to cover the family independently to take the story wherever it would lead and they were confident in doing this because they felt that the there was scientific value medical value in focusing on this family and they knew that researchers had been talking to them for decades and they wanted to know what those researchers learned as. Well okay all families. Don't get along perfectly. And I imagine a family with twelve children. Probably even more so where they unanimous in their willingness to collaborate with you to answer your questions be interviewed well aside from being completely gobsmacked by the story and and really could not believe all. This happened to one family. I was pretty convinced in the beginning that there couldn't be a book about this because of medical privacy laws that all all it would take was one sibling standing up and saying what you WANNA book about this family no way and then suddenly it would get very impossible so I worked very Slowly and really took it very easy and over several months I would get on the phone. Maybe once a week with different family members saying so you know your sisters are interested in having a book about your family. How does that make you feel and sort of got took the temperature of the entire family and to my amazement everyone was interested in. Everyone was ready including Mimi. The family matriarch who had been so determined to keep everything secret for so long. She was in her nineties. Ready to talk about it too. She died in two thousand seventeen after you interviewed her. And I want to talk about that interview a little bit because as you mentioned earlier at that time schizophrenia was often blamed on mothers. Yes and and so. She was thrilled to be talking about it from a genetic perspective. You know. We're in the Arab genetics. Now so it it made her feel good to be able to say yes. Well now. We know that it couldn't have been bad parenting that it was genetics and so two that part she was happy but she was really part of her survival instinct and part of what made her so functional for so long was that she could really move past a lot of the unpleasantness in her life. So getting here to talk about unpleasant subjects was not easy and of course. I didn't WanNa get a ninety one or ninety two year old to to do anything. I didn't want to traumatize someone who was clearly in such frail health. So what proceeded was me sitting there at the kitchen table with her and her two daughters were at the table too and every time she would try to deflects the conversation. One of her daughter's would go. Oh Mom and and try to kind of cajole her gently back to talk about the unpleasant stuff and eventually she she was able to really open up about some very difficult things and I was really grateful to get that kind of clarity from her. Twelve children is difficult enough. I mean twelve children. Ten of them were boys even if they did not suffer from mental illness even during the baby boom. That's a lot of kids. Why did they have twelve children? I spent a lot of time sort of looking into that question for dom father. He was Catholic and he was looking for a distinguished life and he wanted to to stand out in some way and it made him feel good to be a pattern familias and so it pleased him to have so many children. And then Mimi who was like a lot of women in her generation a little frustrated that she couldn't intellectually really achieve dreams. She really gave up her college education and gave up and he sort of independent life to be a mother and she gave up a life of culture and sophistication moving out to the boonies which is Colorado was in the fifties to her as a sophisticated New Yorker and so she liked the being having a certain amount of notoriety and fame and accomplishment of having such a large family but more than that I think she was binging on family in a way because of a lot of the losses she had had in her life. She had lost her father when she was younger and a scandal he sort of became divorced from the family and she never really had a relationship with him. She now was in a marriage where the husband was increasingly absent. He was a career military guy who really created a life of the mind and was not an active parent like a lot of fathers in that time period and so really having so many children gave her a lot of company and I came to appreciate that aspect of it. So six of these kids. Six of the were ultimately diagnosed with schizophrenia. Which as I understand it typically emerges in adolescence or young adulthood it. Correct me if I'm wrong but we're there earlier signed. How did they first find out about the first child to be diagnosed? They suspect something was wrong. Well five of the six of them really followed that pattern. They were all twenty twenty one twenty two in late adolescence. When they had their first really visible psychotic breaks. There was one peter who was earlier he was fourteen he. There was real trauma right before that happened. He watched his father suffers stroke but the they were warning signs for for some of them for Donald. The oldest son he really was a very troubled teenager despite being out early so successful and so popular and he would do things like smashed dishes while washing the dishes out of rage or be overly almost gratuitously abusive to his younger brothers when he was left to take care of them. There are certain ways that he should have demonstrated that he wasn't connecting with the world in a traditional way in that it's almost like there is a barrier between him and others and that was very visible even in his teenage years. But it only devolved into psychosis. Once he was in college he would do things like run into a bonfire during a PEP rally or be cruel to animals. Th they were difficult moments that suddenly were wakeup calls to him. That something was really wrong and he started going to see therapists and his parents started shopping for a medical opinion. That could keep him in college and keep the family away from scandal.
Investing Your Resources with Craig Groeschel
"We get to have a conversation with Craig Rochelle. He's one of our summit twenty twenty speakers and he's the pastor of one of the largest churches in America and today today he's going to teach you the business owner on one of the topics that he's deeply passionate about resource allocation. Because here's the deal if you're a business owner you you need a focus plan for where you are investing your time your talent your money and your energy and has craig lays out in this conversation conversation. There are a few things about resource allocation that we all need to focus on so we're talking about resource allocation nation. And if you think about just the two words what our resources resources would be the time the money the staff the assets. Whatever we we have to move the mission forward and then allocation comes from the word allocate which means just to direct or distribute and so the most simple definition that? I had that I work with our team. On with resource allocation is investing the available resources in the present took -CCOMPLISH your goals and your objectives in the future. What do we have? How can we invest to bring about the desired results in the future? So that's my best definition of resource allocation and I love that you use that word invest and I. I know that you use that word intentionally. Can you explain to us kind of the mindset around that word invest. Yes so Alex. In my early years years of leadership I tended to think about spending resources rather than investing them and I think a lot of times business owners leaders of nonprofits. We we think we need to spend the budget. We need to spend our time. And in my opinion that's kind of a lower level thinking as leaders what we should do instead thinking about spending what we have if we change our mindset to investing then it really does change how. We approach our resources because if I'm spending I don't expect to get something back or at best. I'm getting a trade meeting. I might spend seventy five dollars in exchange for a pair of shoes if I'm investing seventy five dollars though. I'm hoping for a better return. In other words I might get back eight hundred dollars if I invest it wisely and so as leaders of businesses and says or whatever our organizations would be it sounds like a play on words but I really really believe. It's way more than that in our mindsets. We don't want to spend our resources because at best we're getting a trade we want to say. How can we take whatever we have? The people time the energy the money any kind of capital assets and and how can we invest them toward the mission and believing this will get us a better return in the end. You said that it was a shift. You made individually internally Mullaly do you remember what the motivation or the impetus behind that shift from spending to investing was. I wish I could say it was like in a moment. I think it kind of evolved over time in the early years of our leadership and I say ours because I might have been the point leader but I've never been the seller leader. We've always lead with a team. We thought when it came to resources we often had a scarcity mindset and not an abundance mindset if you have a scarcity mindset. You always tend to think. Well there's not enough to go around we'RE GONNA lose out and we're going to be super super careful and that's why someone with a scarcity mindsets generally afraid to invest because they I think if I invest in. This doesn't go well. I'm not going to have enough. I think in the beginning Alex mindset had to grow from a scarcity mindset. Meaning you know. We only have so much money. Money to we actually can create more money. We can create a product that brings money we can cast vision for change lies which attracts money and moving. I'm from scarcity. We don't have enough mindset to an abundance mindset gave me the ability to then start shifting my assets from spending them and always afraid we're not gonNA have enough to say okay. We can invest meaning. We can take risks and what we actually want. Is We want to return. And so before long we started using a really common business term return on investment. But that's just a normal phrase shoes all all the time everywhere in our organization when we invest our time our people our resources we buy this piece of land. We've hired staff member. We buy some new software. We want uh we want to return on the investment. What type of return do we expect when we invest this resource and if we can get our whole team thinking that way not just the senior leaders the executive team or whatever but everyone on the front lines thinking this way it will change the way we manage resources are organizations and I love that you kind of clarified there? This is not just related to your financial decisions for your organization. This is where you're spending your time individually as a leader. This is where you're investing into into the talent of your organization into the leadership of your organization. It kind of runs the gamut. Is that right. Well one hundred percent and I think a lot of times as leaders. When we think of you've reached source allocation? A lot of people tend to drift toward money. You know where we're gonNA invest the resources we have. We have a limited amount of capital or such but I think that it equally Julio or more important than money would be our time because we can earn more money though we cannot make more time and we do have a limited amount of time is so as leaders. We can be really really busy. And not have a great return or we can be really strategic on who invest in where we spend our time how we try to use czar influence and resources in so unquestionably our time really matters and then our people would be really at the top of the list of our valuable resources and if we see them not just as someone who's going to get us return but as we see them as an investment we want invest in them and help them get better if they can grow in their leadership if they can become more capable leaders if they can expand their influence then ultimately that can help the whole organization win and so yes. We have to think broadly sadly our people matter. Our time matters are influence matters. All these things are resources that we need to strategically allocate and. We're not going to become great by accident and many ways. That's what Dave Ramsey teachers all the time you know every dollar has a name. We know where it's going to go. We don't get out out of debt accidentally. We have to be intentional about it. And I'm choosing you know in your personal finance. It might be. I'm choosing to give first and then then I'm choosing to save next and then I'm I'm choosing to pay off these bills and resource allocation. That's at simplisafe. That's what your team teaches all the time and that's what we need to teach our leaders and again Alex not just our senior leaders not just our finance team. This needs to be interwoven into the culture so that everyone on the team recognizes this is we are all allocating very important resources and what we do with them really does matter and I know you lay out some specific actions that leaders leaders and team should take with regard to this topic of resource allocation as you walk through these. I want to challenge our listeners to really be running through the lens of okay how what am I doing in this arena with regard people with regard to my time with regard to my finances of the business with regard to time as a whole because I think that this is a really exceptional exceptional exercising kind of self evaluation looking in the mirror. But I'd love for you to start with that first action and it's kind of related to just starting with the end in mind as leaders. We have to do Alex. We we have to clearly define the win and that sounds almost insultingly simple but the tragedy is this often doesn't happen in the organization if you walk into a business and you ask ten different people. You know what's your win. What are you trying to accomplish? You might get ten different answers. And that's not not acceptable so we always say that you can't accomplish what you can't define. What is the win? Something that we're working on this year we plan on the opening Six New Church buildings in in different cities and states. And so you could say. That's the win but Audi really limited when because if we open them all all and they all have only fifty people coming or they're all understaffed than other appropriate team members. Then that's not really a win so we can't just say we. We want to grow revenue by twenty percent. We WanNA open up Two new branches or whatever. We need to be really really really clear. What is the win? How many people do we need becoming? Look what type of revenue do. We need. What kind of culture? We're trying to create and be super super clear on the win. If we can be clear on the win then we can start looking at the second step. which is we're investing toward that when we're intentionally trying to create the win and I think a lot of times what happens is we're trying to implement what might be five or six or seven year old wins? Meaning we're we're still you know. Someone had an initiative years ago. And now we're just coasting in our organizations and we're doing what we did in the past and and not looking at. What is the fresh win? What are we trying to accomplish today? If that's the goal then what do we need to do with our time with our money with our people. Our Team are enough to invest it very specifically toward that direct

It's not a really great way to get in shape when you're my age anyways, and biking a super great lot easier on for a so I am back in the be cycled in coming back to them this year. It's still ten dollars a month if you go to heartland dot B cycle dot com is their site. They now have electric assist bikes which are awesome. Like I, I want to I wanna buy these, this is one of those where it senses like so you start pedaling. And if you're going up a hill, it will kick in, and then it just kind of syst- you up the hill, and we have some pretty good hills here in Omaha. It's not in ver okay? Okay, denver. Sorry. It's not Denver. Right. Everybody's. No, we're not Denver. But it is pretty we still have some pretty good hills downtown. And I took the electric bikes out for the last two days, and it has really brought some magic back to some motivation behind me biking to the point now where okay I'm getting electric assistant ongoing lot faster, which is a lot more fun. And I'm not gonna do it all the time because I really I need the workouts that the really crappy vikes, you know, the big heavy trek bikes. Right. These are the heaviest bicycles in the world. They only have three speeds there intentionally slow like they don't want you to go fast. They don't want you to get hurt hurt on these things. But, but wow. The other thing they changed on their app here in town, which is cool is you can see not only how many bikes, but what kind are they electric? Or are they just the manual kind which is super cool? And then the new feature they added this time. And this is this changes everything. Me because I was having to carry I was carrying my ID and my credit card, so I could check the bikes out and yesterday. I lost my driver's license as I was biking. It's really sucks. I'm hoping somebody will mail, it, it, I'm hoping some, some nice, personal mail in, I don't have to get a new one. Getting a new ones losing a credit card. Honestly is worse because you have to shut off the credit card, and then all those things that go along with canceling a credit card that really sucks driver's license just go down and DMV pay him twenty five bucks, and they give you a new one out of a deal, but it has been. I'm having that. So now on the app, you just you say where you're at and you put the number of the stall in the bike, just pops out for super great charge Jakarta the app. Yeah, switch. No. And I have a ten dollar ten dollar plan here. No Mahal gets me an hour on the bike for free and then it's four dollars an hour after that. But if I checked the bike in and check it back out. Timer, resets, a soup or great way, men and ladies, a super great way to get some fitness. I don't own a bike. I don't have to own a bike. We have I don't know, hundreds, maybe thousands of bikes in the Omaha area. I can just drive the one jump on it and get get a bike fracture Cise. It's a super great way of getting out getting some sun, getting around Omaha and getting some exercise, Mike. I'm kinda back it. I've done it twice now yesterday and today and I'm like miss this during the winter. So super great to be back on the bike. Have you ever have you looked at any? Kind of any kind of the, the bike system, and now we're gonna talk about an a second. They have those scooters have you ever looked at an using any of those? Yeah. Well, I, we loved the scooters we went to Nashville, Tennessee, and we use the scooters to get around locally when we were down there for family vacation and we loved him. So I'm super excited actually use those in downtown. But from where I'm at Jim, there's really no easy place to access those bikes. You know, I don't work downtown or anything like that. So we actually hand, I have our own bikes. And I we use them every once in a while we now have the burly that attach to the back of the boys, which, you know, makes us use them a little bit more. But no, you know, I haven't used the ones we check out very often when those are nice, though, is when I'm with a group like
