Seth Godin's Six Words That'll Change Your Life

Let It Be Easy with Susie Moore

I discovered Seth's *many* books as I was starting my business years ago, and his ideas gave me so much confidence to create.  And then I used to walk around New York City binge-listening to Seth Godin podcast interviews.  In the dead of winter, his words and encouragement gave me a warm feeling as I circled the Jackie Onassis reservoir, taking mental notes.  Now, Seth's on MY podcast, and I'm dyyyyyinnng to share this with you!  In this interview, we talk about:  - Is talent or skill more important?  - Do you need volume to create success?  - Why "nobody is coming to save you," and why that's a brilliant thing!  And we don't always agree.  Seth is an entrepreneur, best-selling author, and speaker. In addition to launching one of the most popular blogs globally, he has written 20 best-selling books, including The Dip, Linchpin, Purple Cow, Tribes, and What To Do When It's Your Turn (And It's Always Your Turn). By focusing on everything from effective marketing and leadership to the spread of ideas and changing everything, Seth has motivated and inspired countless people around the world.  If you like this episode, please consider rating and reviewing the podcast on Apple Podcasts!

Seth Godin On How To Make Things Better

Scale Up With Nick Bradley

Seth Godin is a former dot com business executive and the author of twenty best-selling books that have been translated into over 40 languages around the world, and which have helped to empower others to become the best version of themselves. His blog was named by Time among its 25 best blogs of 2009. Seth joins Nick today to talk about the answers to some very crucial questions - namely how we can increase our impact in the world by doing the things we're truly passionate about, and how to turn that passion into a scalable enterprise of which we can be proud. KEY TAKEAWAYS A true teacher is someone who can recognise the light in others, and who do all they can to make it burn brighter, without regard for their own personal glorification. Marketing and advertising used to be the same thing, leading to a misunderstanding that still exists to this day. An advertising campaign is not the same as a marketing campaign. The core principle of marketing used to be to make average stuff for average people at scale. What has shifted is that scale is no longer a plus but a minus. The finest way of reaching your customers is to create something sp special that they will run to tell others. This is a dramatic shift in the way we reach people. BEST MOMENTS 'I'm trying to turn on lights for people' 'It is cheaper and more effective to make something for someone than it is to make something for everyone' 'I would rather applaud people who are doing extraordinary things, than win any given competition' 'Spend money to make a product or service that people want to talk about' VALUABLE RESOURCES Scale Up with Nick Bradley: scaleup.vip/podcast Scale Up Your Business, coaching/consulting: https://suyb.global "Scale To Sale" Workshop ... join my FREE training on how to scale your business to a life-changing exit - register here:https://www.scaleupmastermind.com/live-workshop Seth Godin - https://seths.blog ABOUT THE HOST  Nick Bradley is a renowned entrepreneur, investor, speaker, and business growth expert.

Reload: The Human Side of Business with Seth Godin

What's Next! with Tiffani Bova

Welcome to the What's Next! Podcast with Tiffani Bova for this What’s Next! Reload.  This week I am bringing back an episode with my wonderful friend Seth Godin on the human side of business. Seth is the author of over 18 books that have been bestsellers around the world and been translated into more than 35 languages. He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership, and–most of all–changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip, and, my favorite, Purple Cow. In addition to his writing and speaking Seth founded both Yoyodyne and Squidoo. His blog, which you can find him by typing Seth into Google, is one of the most popular in the world and he was recently inducted into the Direct Marketing Hall of Fame–one of three chosen for this honor in 2013.  THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… humans is sales and marketing.  TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Seth loves to talk about making something happen. He is a huge fan of doing the right thing in business. The “right thing” means not caring about stock options or your career and still caring about what you’re making.  He promotes focusing on service to deliver consistently and maintains that great marketers should spread ideas, not make sales.  Your job as the marketer is not to sell what the factory makes, but to serve the people the company seeks to serve. This is the human side of business.    WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Seth’s advice for the new marketer and what to do if you feel trapped and/or like you aren’t doing good work.  Running time: 34:48  Subscribe on iTunes Find Tiffani on social:  Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Find Seth on social:  Twitter Instagram LinkedIn
