Business Ethics with Scott Stratten

Easy Prey

No one enjoys being on the receiving end of a business that manipulates or pushes you into buying something. Good business is about relationships where you are authentic, engaged, and building trust. Today’s guest is Scott Stratten. Scott is an author, podcast host, and an award winning keynote speaker. He is known for his energy, passion, knowledge, humor, and his man bun. His live and virtual presentations bring UnMarketing to life, energizing attendees, and creating experiences audiences will remember and learn from. Show Notes: [1:30] - Scott’s inspiration for starting UnMarketing was frustration. He explains his background and how he moved forward into entrepreneurship. [3:58] - In business, Scott saw the “buy or bye” mentality and believes there’s a better way. [5:27] - It isn’t about tactics. Strategies don’t take into account the human factor. [6:53] - “I’m going to say what I think and I’m going to say it without a filter.” A lot of people are afraid of this for polarizing the market. [8:13] - Scott shares the story behind the domain name for UnMarketing. [11:01] - The kindness of the person who originally owned the domain name believed in Scott’s brand. [13:04] - Many companies continue to manipulate people to buy. [14:04] - In marketing, if you lie, nobody knows. [15:49] - Scott shares the story of catching a company in a lie.

[36:13] - A lot of companies believe they own their employees. Employees are an asset, not overhead. [37:18] - Scott shares the story of an experience when consulting and a technique called Stop, Start, Continue. [42:04] - After 20 years in this field, Scott continues to be shocked that people don’t realize how they are supposed to treat others. [45:01] - Scott recently revamped the UnMarketing website to better show what it is about and to ensure that it is presented authentically. [46:29] - A newer phenomenon in business is that younger generations are coming in with better skills in tech. [48:31] - Be wary of those who say something isn’t working anymore because they are likely selling an alternative.

How His Mistake Bankrupted a Viral Video Company | Scott Stratten, Unmarketing

The Professional Confessional

Today's guest is entrepreneur, keynote speaker, and unapologetic Canadian, Scott Stratten, who explains how his biggest mistake drove a mind-bogglingly successful viral video production company into bankruptcy--and how he pivoted back into success. Scott's biggest mistake was his lack of professional curiosity and overconfidence in his approach and product that left him blind to industry updates and progress. Ultimately, his loss of curiosity led to the bankruptcy of his previously successful video business in 2008 and the complete erasure of his speaking gigs during the Covid pandemic a decade later. On realizing his mistake, Scott eliminated distractions that only reinforced his error of self-admitted arrogance and proactively sought out opportunities which forced him to learn new things and make time for what really mattered -- personally and professionally. Professional enthusiasm was key. Today, Scott Stratten is resuming his keynote speaking engagements -- though on a greatly reduced schedule by design -- and experimenting with new platforms, including video-on-demand courses and live LinkedIn webcasts under his Unmarketing brand. You can find out more about Scott on Unmarketing.com, through any of his six business books coauthored with his wife Allison, and on Twitter @Unmarketing. You can find this and other episodes of the Professional Confessional podcast at PC-Podcast.com or on your preferred podcasting platform of choice. Do you want to come on and share your biggest professional mistake? Head to PC-Podcast.com/BeOurGuest to schedule your professional confessional. In the meantime, please share this episode with someone you think needs to hear this today -- and share what you needed to hear in a review! The more often we rate and review our favorite podcasts, the more people will find out about our community and the more episodes I can make. That's all for this Professional Confessional. I'm Ashley Stryker. Thanks again for tuning in, and I hope you'll join us next time. Talk soon! Support the show (https://ko-fi.com/professionalconfessional)

Unlearn with Scott Stratten (ep. 360)

Live Inspired Podcast with John O'Leary

Scott Stratten is president of UnMarketing and was named “Top Five Social Media Influencers in the World” by Forbes.com. Co-author of six bestselling books with his business partner and wife Alison, Scott helps organizations see their business through his unconventional + disruptive “unmarketing” lens. Today, Scott reveals the power of having others believe in you, tips you can apply that have helped him evolve as a presenter, and what he recommends you "unlearn."  This conversation will motivate you to rise above limiting beliefs and take the next best step in your life. SHOW NOTES Captivated by motivational speaker Les Brown, Scott dreamt of using his energy, passion, knowledge and humor to inspire others. [Just as Scott admired Les Brown as a child, hearing Capitan Charlie Plumb's story left me mesmerized. Hear Charlie share how forgiveness + discipline helped him survive six years as POW on Live Inspired Podcast ep. 31] High school teachers Mr. Penman and Mr. Bearagen had such a positive effect on Scott, he credits them as the reason he graduated. Put the work in. Get the reps. Scott shares how he's evolved as a presenter and how comedians influence his delivery. Watch Scott's now-viral piece on Millennial bias here. "If they're laughing, they're listening. If they're listening, that's when they're evolving." Scott shares the meaning behind some of this tattoos including "unlearn" and Gandi's quote "my life is my message." "It's not mandatory. You have the right to close these things off and pull away if it's no longer serving a purpose." - Scott's social media philosophy "My job isn't to rehabilitate jerks online. I'm not the jackass whisperer." "Every success in business and life is a combination of luck, timing, skill and effort -- and you can only control two of those." "If you believe business is built on relationships, then make building relationships your business." Get Scott Stratten's popular bestselling book UnMarketing here and his latest bestselling book The Jackass Whisperer here. SCOTT STRATTEN'S LIVE INSPIRED 7 What is the best book you’ve ever read? The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch and Permission Marketing by Seth Godin. What is a characteristic or trait that you possessed as a child that you wish you still exhibited today? Curiosity.  Your house is on fire, all living things and people are out. You have the opportunity to run in and grab one item. What would it be? My family's passports because traveling together and being able to experience things is everything. You are sitting on a bench overlooking a gorgeous beach. You have the opportunity to have a long conversation with anyone living or dead. Who would it be? My grandfather because I didn't ask him everything I wish I had. What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Just keep going. What advice would you give your 20-year-old self? It would be encouragement to follow the path of passion, hard work and time. It’s been said that all great people can have their lives summed up in one sentence. How do you want yours to read? Treat others how you liked to be treated.

Punk Rock HR

Punk Rock HR Episode 133: In case you haven’t heard, I have a new book coming out called Betting On You: How to Put Yourself First and Finally Take Control of Your Career. The journey of writing a book has been both straightforward and surprising. Throughout each step of the process, something happened to my health or my family, making it a journey for sure.  The easiest part of it all is writing the book; the business of publishing, on the other hand, is extremely complex.

I brought on my dear friend and Hall of Fame keynote speaker and author, Scott Stratten. Scott is the founder of The UnMarketing Movement and a true marketing genius. He has been where I am now, at the beginning of a book launch. So, this episode will be a good old-fashioned mentoring conversation. Tune in and I know you’ll learn something, too. In this episode you’ll hear: What the favor economy is and why it’s breaking my heart right now. Some of the sketchy ways books are sold today. What nominations really mean. Why it’s so critical to figure out your end goal when writing a book. All the work that actually goes into making a book. One thing about the book publishing process that has surprised Scott.   Resources from this episode: Laurie on Instagram Laurie on LinkedIn Read more from Laurie Work with Laurie UnMarketing UnMarketing on LinkedIn Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us UnMarketing: Everything Has Changed and Nothing is Different The Jackass Whisperer: How to deal with the worst people at work, at home and online―even when the Jackass is you *** EPISODE CREDITS: If you like this podcast and are thinking of creating your own, consider talking to my producer, Danny Ozment.
