Do you ever think you are enough? For most of us, we believe in hustling every day, going to work six, seven days a week, putting on the hours and then going home to do more. And then you get to a point where you’re not enough. Enough is out there. Enough is just beyond. Blake Hudson, Director of Sales Enablement at Re:work Training, joins Joshua Rhodes to talk about his personal experience in dealing with life, getting into politics, public speaking and then sales, where he found his match. And he wants to help people find theirs by helping them navigate the questions on identity, practice and purpose and make them realize who they want to be, what they want to do and the purpose of why they’re doing it.

Ashleigh and Kasey talk to Blake Hudson, the Admission Manager at Victory Lap, about gratitude, his background in politics, and how to clarify your identity and purpose. Show Notes The Gratitude Gap -Blake hit the ground running in his first sales role, hitting quota for the first three months. In the fourth month, the stakes increased. His quota doubled, leads narrowed, and he felt he wouldn’t be able to meet the metrics. -After spending the better part of the quarter sulking, a conversation with a friend helped him to realize that if he could change his viewpoint to one of gratitude, he would be happier and more likely to succeed at work. Politics -In his junior year of high school, Blake attended Boys State, a week for learning about civic engagement and responsibility that impacted him greatly. He returned for his senior year, signed up for an American Government class amid the 2008 election, and his group won the mock campaign assignment. -Believing that politics could be where he would shine, Blake went to college and studied Political Science and Communication and, upon graduating, began working on the Senate Floor. -While there, he saw what the real work in politics is: listening to your constituents, understanding their needs, taking that to the state or national level, and building coalitions around it. -He then went on to get his Master’s in Public Administration before running for State Senate. Sales -His Senate campaign ended, and he worked on a congressional campaign. After this, he found himself at a very liminal spot in his career. -While attempting to make sense of his resume, he worked as an admissions counselor. His manager emphasized that this role was a sales position he was selling the university. -Blake realized he wasn’t getting paid or trained like a sales professional, so he brainstormed ways he could break into sales and eventually found Victory Lap. Talking to People About Sales -A tactic he learned early on from giving speeches is to put your focus on the audience. Think about how they are benefitting from your interaction. Sales is about solving problems for other people. -For underrepresented groups, it can be hard to picture success in the sales industry. Someone must be actively seeking individuals of those groups out and presenting the job in a way that instills the confidence that they can learn and succeed in the role. Sales as a Start -Sales is a phenomenal launching point for a variety of different careers. Not only are you able to dip your toe into a wide array of departments, but the skillset relates to every industry and even to personal life to build better relationships. Who You Want the Be -The question of who you want to be is overwhelming but can be approached practically. -Blake helps professionals find clarity and understand what they want by asking what they needed when they were growing up. From there, they then think about how they can provide that for other people, and how those people then change as a result. -Another tactic would be to ask why multiple times.

In this episode, Blake Hudson, Professor of Law and A.L. O'Quinn Chair in Environmental Studies at the University of Houston Law Center, discusses his article "Denying Disaster: A Modest Proposal for Transitioning from Climate Change Denial Culture in the Southeastern United States," which he co-authored with Evan Spencer, and published in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review. Hudson begins by observing that the Southeastern United States is especially vulnerable to climate change, but voters in the region resist policies intended to mitigate climate change. He reflects on the reasons for that resistance, and offers thoughts on how advocacy organizations could communicate with Southern voters more effectively.
