Ep 43 - When Your Side Hustle is Really Just a Hobby...and Why NOTHING is Wrong with That!
Okay, Success Chargers. You're different. You see opportunity where others only see roadblocks, but let's be honest about this one. What is wrong with simply having a "hobby". Why does EVERYBODY seem to think they have to be "hustlin" or "grindin". When really, so many of those same people, are just...well...."Strugglin". Dan Pink's book, Free Agent Nation, rocked my world when I read it nearly 10 years ago. In the text, he explains how the world is basically shifting from what we think of as a traditional employment world, to a "gig economy" world (I'm pretty sure "gig economy" is a newer term, but you get it, right?) There's only one problem. Too many of the very companies who would prefer to pay for talent ONLY when they REALLY NEED IT, have build vast systems to support a "traditional business model" and they often find themselves ill-equipped to actually execute on a plan that the "gigsters" would LOVE.... Being able to work on projects as a free-agent on an "as-needed" basis with enough frequency to be able to effectively blend work with the lifestyle they prefer. I think we're on our way to seeing Pink's reality, it's just taking longer than many people would like. Leaving many with a strong DESIRE to be a free agent stuck in a purgatory between what they really want and the harsh realities of the ever-expanding cost of living. (Television used to only cost the price of the TV itself, you know....and it wasn't that long ago. Now....$200+ month is not uncommon just for the "content".) So this week, we beg the question, "Do you REALLY have a side hustle, or is that stuff you work on after work just a "hobby"....and by the way, there is NOTHING wrong with having a good ol' fashioned hobby. Sound off at our FB page www.FaceBook.com/SuccessChargerPodcast or drop us a quick note at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. Does your side hustle make money? Do you actually do anything for fun anymore, or are you trying to "monetize" EVERYTHING you do? Or, are you a hipster who still goes to coffee shops for the gasp actual coffee?

Ep 42 - What Neuroleadership & SCARF Teach Us About Connection
Let's face it, people are either working very hard to get closer to you, or equally as hard to get away from you. What we say (particularly how we say it) has tremendous impact on others willingness to connect with us in a meaningful way. In recent months, I've been facilitating some amazing discussions with leaders around the ideas coming out of the research of Dr David Rock. Particularly, his brain-science model for explaining our threat/reward behaviors and what triggers them through use of a model he calls SCARF. In this episode, Scott gets into an explanation of SCARF and how it opened up an even deeper way to explain HOW we connect with one another to build meaningful, productive relationships. ________- Scott Cooksey works globally with business professionals to develop their ability to build profitable, lasting relationships by levering the power of connection.

Ep 39 - Your Business Needs a Gut Check - Interview with Lori Harrison - Plexus Diamond Ambassador
Lori Harrison will gladly tell you she had no idea in the world she was building a business when she began sharing her story on Facebook to a bunch of her friends. Today, she and her husband Jeddie Harrison are at the top of their game in a vibrant and successful business build on...well...southern charm and doing what seemed right. Multi level marketing companies often receive a bad rap. And while certainly there are some sketchy offerings in the "MLM" space, there ARE in fact several companies that do quite well. Mary Kay Cosmetics comes to mind as a shining example of proof. I'm not here to say MLM is right for you. It may very well not be. The story I wanted to bring you, though, is one about authenticity, following your heart, and proof that sticking to your guns can make it possible to build a business...even if you don't realize that's what you are doing. For the entrepreneurial at heart, this is a story about "the dream" others around you cannot see. The lifestyle you know is possible while others run the rat race. In recent years, there is a newer player on the scene in Plexus. Frankly, I didn't know much about who they were until some friends simply shared a "pink drink mix" dumped into a bottle of water while we were at their house. While we didn't "buy in" as reps, I have to admit, some of the product has found its way into our house, and we use the supplements, too. But that isn't what this story is about. When our friends here in Houston cornered me about someone I went to high school with in Oklahoma over two decades ago, I got more curious. Turns out, it was Lori...so in true Success Charger fashion, we booked her for an interview, and are bringing it to you here today! We'll post a full set of show notes including some of her early YouTube testimonials, some links to her wildly popular Facebook page, and much more at www.IdeaCharger.com/Episode39 (If you're an early downloader of this show, we may not have all the good stuff rounded up yet, so keep checking back).

Ep 38 - Why Everyone Should Become A Facilitator - John Verdone - DDI
Even with many years experience developing leaders, John Verdone was struggling to describe just exactly what he did for a living. That is, until one day, when he happened to catch a certain story unfolding on a PBS-like television show and it all clicked. In this interview, John stops by the podcast to share what a study he commissioned uncovered about what makes a great facilitator, when learning really begins for adults, and why everyone should incorporate facilitation skills to build deeper, more meaningful connections with co-workers, clients and in your life.
