Recently I was interviewed by Tim Martin of Success Is Voluntary and I wanted to share it here with you. This interview was so fun because of the connection Tim and I have with each other – he titled this interview “Twins Separated at Birth”.
Things we talked about:
- I was expelled from seminary.
- I started my career selling books door to door as a college intern
- Adversity needs to be examined in perspective.
- My passion is helping people live their best life.
- Learning to ride in the current rather than fighting it.
- The next 10 years are the “golden age” for Voluntary Benefits.
- When you are having “one of those days” remember:
- It’s not about you.
- We tend to look at problems from the “me” perspective.
- Why are they being mean to ME?
- Why do bad things always happen to ME?
- Why don’t people buy from ME?
- The best way to get out of that funk is to make a positive impact on another person.
- Be present
- You only find your authentic voice after you know how to do something.
- Courage doesn’t occur without fear.
- If you saw someone talking to their dog like you talk to yourself, you would probably want to intervene and tell them not to treat their dog that poorly.
- One of the biggest self-limiting beliefs is that we need to do something on our own. Lose the pride and ask for help!
- My billboard: “Love each other.”
