KEVIN ROBERTS | How fast can you fail, learn & fix #052

Kevin Roberts is, personally, experiencing a fail of his own creation. Recently, he did an interview for Business Insider and, unfortunately, was quoted saying some very irresponsible comments regarding gender equality in the advertising industry. This fail has cost him his roles as Chairman Saatchi & Saatchi, and Head Coach Publicis Groupe. This interview was recorded before his career went sideways and I wrestled with publishing this show. In fact, I did reach out to his team to offer an opportunity for Kevin to share his side of the story.  Unfortunately, they did not reply. Regardless, I believe the content shared in this conversation is still packed with valuable content. I ask that you provide a level of grace to this man for a mistake he’s made and trust that this was a lesson for him to learn and grow… we all deserve that. On this show, we discuss Kevin’s new book, 64 Shots, the rapid changes in today’s world, and approaching it differently and positively.

How to live in the present and unlock your amazing future #049

Living in the present is an easy concept to understand, but not always an easy one to walk out. For many, the past keeps us in a state of longing or regret. We either want to get back to the “good ol’ days” or feel crippled by the pain of some negative experience. For others, the future is a perpetual pursuit for “this”, the thing that once you achieved, isn’t as good as the “next” thing. We endlessly chase after the role, relationship, position, income, accolade, or pinnacle that will bring happiness. Life is often a distraction of comparison, and the pressures of “perfection’. On this show I’m flying solo to share with you some life-giving encouragement, connecting you to your inner core of power, and cultivate a sense of life satisfaction.
