Ep.74 Tony Loyd, Leadership Development Coach and SOCIAL ENTREPRENEUR
Calm the Chaos
Tony Loyd is a leadership development expert who helps people who are frozen and frustrated in their careers and aspires them to be purpose-driven leaders! Oftentimes, people may feel inspired but stuck. He helps people develop a bridge from an idea to innovation to impact! Tony’s podcast, Social Entrepreneur is about interviewing people who are making a dollar and a difference. These are people who are making money but the money is in service to that mission. Tony goes on to share some of these people who he has interviewed and how they are making a difference. Even though Tony interviews individuals worldwide, he provides two examples in his local community which is inspiring! To help people in this process of creating something bigger than themselves, he asks his clients the following questions What breaks your heart? What inspires you? Those answers are the clues for what you can do in the world! The next question is What unique strengths and abilities do you bring to the table? Tony goes on to share what he would say to the woman in midlife who feels that it’s too late for them to tackle anything inspirational or imaginative. Tony then goes on to share how tackling the questions above and taking baby steps is your first step to making things happen. Ask yourself, what is my one month, ninety-day plan, and then one year plan. Last but not least, what are the daily habits that are going to get me there? Remember, if you take small actions every day then you can make a lot of progress! You have value in the world! Stand firm and tall! Burning out your candle doesn’t make anybody else's candle burn any brighter. Tony then goes on to encourage all the listeners that if you have something to share that now is the time. We need you more than ever to shine your light and stand tall! We then go on to discuss Tony’s book: Crazy Good Advice, Ten Lessons Learned from 150 Leading Social Entrepreneurs. He took what he learned from the 150 people interviewed and boiled it down to the ten pieces of advice that was given repeatedly. During this process, he came up with one sentence “miracles find you while you’re in motion”. If you are sitting still, then these moments or miracles can not find you. It’s when you go into motion that you run into those little moments of serendipity. So miracles find you while you are in motion. Don’t you love that?

Social Entrepreneurship, the Future of Capitalism with Tony Loyd (#065)
Are making money and doing good mutually exclusive? I don't believe so, and neither does my guest on this episode, Tony Loyd. Could the future of capitalism be social entrepreneurialism and social enterprise? A new model where the benefits of free enterprise meet the world of doing good? Not for profit organisations certainly have their place when it comes to short-term solutions to issues, but their long-term effectiveness relies on continuous fund-raising. Social enterprise on the other hand, can have a positive impact in the way it sources, produces and sells its products or services from the materials it uses, the waste it creates and the way it treats people. Following a period of feeling unfulfilled, Tony left his high-flying corporate position with zero notice to pursue a life of purpose and meaning. That decision has led him to help many people pursue their dreams, speak on the TEDx stage and host a top podcast. If you want to pursue a life of more meaning, fulfilment and impact, this is a great place to start. Find out more at https://pocketmastermind.com
