I talked to Leanna Johnson who is a journalist and who is using her journalism to build a business around it and to promote entrepreneurs to help them tell their stories. As entrepreneurs, as business owners we talked about this in the Chris Smith interview if you’ve heard that, telling your story is one of the most important things you have to figure out how to do. How to pull out those stories of who you are, of why you do what you do, and sometimes we can’t pull it out of ourselves. We need to be interviewed, we need to talk to someone else, and a journalist can really help with that. So Leanna is doing that for others and she is really documenting everything that she’s doing, everything that others are doing, on her website. It’s some really cool stuff.

    The 5 Forces of Entrepreneurial Storytelling with Chris Smith: TREPX Podcast Episode 66

    04/03/2016 Duration: 39min

    Stories are how we learn about history, people, and even businesses. Poorly told stories are forgettable and hard to connect with, but we rarely think about investing in the stories we tell as entrepreneurs. When we don’t clearly communicate our company’s brand and message, we miss huge opportunities. Even a simple networking introduction can turn into thousands of dollars of business and long-lasting business relationships.   In TREPX Podcast Episode 66, host Micky Deming talks to The Campfire Effect Founder Chris Smith. “We teach entrepreneurs and their teams how to tell their story in a really powerful way so they can do three things,” says Chris. According to Chris, those three things are:   Get More Clients   Build a Stronger Culture   Make More of an Impact   Could something as simple as a story really bring in more clients, help internally with culture, and assist the business in making a bigger impact? Absolutely, but it doesn’t come to each of us naturally. “Very rarely do entrepreneurs invest

    Living and Growing Yourself and Your Business Consciously with Kim Ades - Episode 65

    26/02/2016 Duration: 27min

    Kim Ades, the Founder and President of Frame of Mind Coaching, joined TREPX Podcast host Micky Deming to talk about mindset, journaling and getting ahead in business. Kim coaches executives and leading entrepreneurs to become emotionally resilient. ”Coaching, up until recently, has been highly focused on helping people take actions in order to reach their goals.  It wasn’t really focused on emotional resilience,” says Ades. Ades described emotional resilience as “the ability to bounce back from adversity with speed and agility to leverage the adversity.” During our entrepreneurial journey, and discovering how to grow a business that’s bigger than just ourselves, we often try to forget adversity rather than utilizing it to move forward at a greater pace. Ades talked about the false concept of “balance,” and posed the question “do we really want balance?” She says that balance isn’t what we actually want. “What we are after is engagement. We are after passion. We are after being turned on. We are after being fu

    Ilan Nass came from an entrepreneurial family and has made it in the world of digital marketing. He tried his hand in finance but that all ended in the crash of 2008. “People who do not know their own data will have a very difficult time growing in any meaningful way because they will not know where their holes are. Once you know your data you can grow. And there is nothing better for growth than having a good competitor because that will force you to either be better or fall off.” Ilan reminds us that we should put a lot of thought into who you are and what you stand for as a company. Because no matter how good your product is you will not be able to sell it if you do not market your product or market your company.

    11/11/2015 Duration: 49min

    This episode dives into the topic of public speaking but is applicable for anyone. We are all performers, Port says, because we have to deliver when we are on display.   This interview covers the topic of fear and anxiety surrounding public speaking and what the root of it really is.   Port says the reason we find speaking publicly difficult is because we are too self-absorbed. The more you focus on your audience and what you are saying, the more your anxiety goes down.   The other reason for fear is about criticism. What will people think?   Port says to deal with this by understanding first of all that if you are doing anything worth doing you will have critics.   He also urges people to allow their idea to be bigger than their need for approval.   He also gives practical tips on how to dominate when the spotlight is on you. You’ll definitely want to stick around til the end because Port shares with Luchies some specifics on exactly what to do as he prepares for the Ted X talk.   This interview has a lot to
