Lee After Dark Ep45: David Chislett
Are you stuck? Get unstuck with creativity. David views creativity as a capacity that goes unused by many. Why? People become complacent stuck in the same place for year after year. Fear of something new, of stepping outside your comfort zone keeps one from reaching the capacity and therefore remains uncreative. 2:00 The myths of calling one “creative”. Creative is a capacity more than a skill or talent. Problem solving at work uses the same “muscles” as DaVinci used when creating. 4:00 Not all people with the capacity will use that capacity. Depends upon the individual. If you want a different or better result you need to stop repeating what you are doing. 10:45 Importance of creativity to David personally is discussed.Technology has been taking jobs for over 200 years, and replacing them with better jobs. 14:00 What’s up with the t-shirt: F=C(O+CH) 15:45 Resistance to the idea of creativity… fear of stepping outside the box and giving up “who we are”. 17.30 What you’ve done is who you are… Pitch: Creativity Activator - davidchislett.com teaches the skills to become more adaptable in life Newletter Medium Uses creativity to get you unstuck.

Lee After Dark Ep44 David Alto
Humility without bragging defines Dave well. Why? Unemployed and prior to his business (helping people with LinkedIn profiles and resumes) starting up, he was doing all this for free by providing content for free on LinkedIn. Humility without bragging references his unwillingness to charge people for helping them. Why would he not charge? This goes to what most entrepreneurs go through, the fear of asking for money for work because they are unsure of themselves and their abilities. If you require assistance with resumes or job hunting on LinkedIn look him up… Dave’s your man. He provides content daily for free to help people. Hits the floor running daily… references his 94 yo mother who says “you can rest when you’re dead”... the motto he lives by… So... if you require exercise, try and keep up with him after you look him up. Good luck with that. The entire story is here, as is his contact information. Oh yeah… his family is from Finland and for centuries have raised reindeer for Santa Claus. Not really. But catch his story here anyway. Intro: 1:15 - back to Feb 2019 LinkedIn account looking for work. Learning experience doing all the wrong things. Being unemployed used LinkedIn looking for work (jobs) and by August launched his own business helping others with resume writing and LinkedIn job searches. *(He loses me here … he was out of work at Feb 2019 and spent several months looking for work and volunteering; then Sept 2019 he “left his corporate job” to fully engage his business helping people with resumes and LinkedIn pages.) 9:00 - “Humility without bragging”. Took awhile for him to realize he was good at what he liked, helping people with their resumes and LinkedIn accts. Was giving away information for free and not originally charging. 12:20 - family moved to Minn. from Finland but has never visited. 14:00 - provides information daily for people for free to help people and to capture clients. Not a fan of resume software. 18:00 - 94 year old mother “you can sleep when you’re dead” her fav saying Pitch: connect on LinkedIn easiest; check his profile out to learn more about how the profile page is meant to work… Want to know more about your bowtied host?

Lee After Dark Ep42 Alyea Sandovar
From Columbia, Alyea has lived in multiple places, first with her family, and now on her own. So much moving has corrupted her definition of home, causing a seemingly endless journey searching for “home”. In this podcast the definition of “home” is raised as a reality… What is home? Returning to Columbia, she didn’t fit. Nor in the US. She the question of “where do I fit?” has lead to a lifetime of travel, searching for “home”. We call home where we live, and work and have family. She defines her home not based upon a place or geography, but as community. She embraces differences in people and places, and is no longer stressed by moving. Pitch - game and play consultant. Summit in April for creatives of all types. How to be more creative and playful at work. Sandovar.com Playful Creative Seminar - April 1:30 - Raises the “concept of home”... 2:00 - Mother married an American which lead to a life of travel… Costa Rica, US (FL), Paris… 5:30  - realized differences in language, word meanings and usage, and how people think. 7:00 - 1st realization she didn’t “fit” which lead to more travel… at 18 went as exchange student to Paris. Returned to US, to TX., and moved to CA. 11:00 - search for a place where she “fits”.  Finding people “like her” gave a feeling of home at that time. 13:30 - Home is not a geographical location as much as a community 16:00 - realizes she has a love/desire to travel, but is not inclined to remain anywhere for long.

Lee After Dark Ep41 - Andrew Jolliffe
Another copywriter on the show? Take a seat. Buckle up. We are going on a ride. In this episode we witness a first, one extraordinary copywriter interviewing another extraordinary copywriter. Mr. Jolliffe believes that to be successful in the advertising world, as a writer of content, scripts, as a copywriter… one should have a life of experience to draw upon versus graduating from school with a degree in advertising. Currently living in Paris, this former organ builder strives to continue to add “experiences” to his life. These experiences are his repository of ideas. He works at a church as a volunteer feeding the homeless, which has provided unique experiences. So grab a chair and listen to a very unique, interesting writer of 26 years explain how and why he has found success. Visit his website and see for yourself after. His advice about life resonates … let life take you where it wants. 2:00 - organ builder for 10 years then built a fireworks company. Introduced him to all kinds of people and cultures around the world. Believes people should obtain other experience in life before going into advertising after school. Family experience, personal experience, work experience, life experience… all material one can draw from in the advertising industry as a copywriter. 6:00 - believes in most all ways of making a living there is enough to go around for everyone, that we all should just be good humans… “no backbiting” needed. 9:00 - Feeds the homeless every week in Paris. Said he meets all kinds of characters that makes him realize there is no pattern to life. (Met a former nuclear physicist in the soup line.) So many things in life are out of your control. Need to let life take you where it wants to. Many people “over goal” themselves. Good to have goals but there is a need to let life educate you as well. Goals shouldn’t be so strict as to not allow change. 14:00 - information sought out in life is what we retain. By working at other things such as the church soup line you are subjected to experiences that are rich and are what will be retained. 16:50 - advice: don’t just work… live as well. Let life guide you. Had a premonition his life would be short when he was young. Thereafter had cancer but he won the battle. Pitch - 26 years a freelance copywriter in Paris, France. He is successful because of all the various perspectives from his many life experiences he brings to the table / writing from these experiences.

Lee After Dark Ep38 Joel Ong
When you travel somewhere for a vacation, are you the typical tourist with a camera? When was the last time you traveled to a destination and decided to NOT be a typical tourist? Imagine taking a break, stepping outside and drawing in a deep breath of sulfur gas and smoke. And doing so hiking about 12 miles up and 12 miles down a steep mountain twice a day. After Joel’s last trip, to Indonesia, he had an epiphany of sorts. He was so struck by the people and the culture around him that he determined he would never again take his “normal” life for granted, nor could he ever ignore the culture of the people where he was visiting. After watching men work for meager wages at jobs that robbed their health (yet these same men were happy as clams) he had to learn more and understand why. Jump into this experience with Joel to learn and understand yourself who these people were, where Joel discovered these people, and what their lives are like… and moreso, what THEY are like. Your own life’s problems will seem insignificant. Why? You’ll see in the next few minutes.   Joel’s take-a-way is… welp… listen to this podcast and learn. I assure you you have never heard of anything like the people and lives described here. And then ask yourself, what’s your take-a-way? Located in and … Live from Singapore! 1:20 - 15:00  “Traveling Experiences” - met people in Croatia that are like family now; - traveled to sulfur mines in Indonesia and saw how the sulfur miners work. Was about a 12 mile (and steep) hike to the top of a crater and then down to the mines. - Dangerous and hard hike that the miners do every night while dark. Did not realize the hard life lived by these miners. - They would transport the sulfur from the mines on their shoulders (about 250#), twice a day… 12 miles to the mine to work, 12 miles out, 12 back and 12 out again… then home at night to do it again in a few hours. - Pay was about $1.00 a day. - Miners live about 45 years, due to breathing in the sulfuric smoke & gases. - what struck Joel was how happy these miners are, and friendly, and puts one’s lived and problems in perspective. - miners would craft figurines out of sulfur and enjoyed that, handing them out to tourists. - 15:00 - was encouraged to try and learn their language and how they live. Learned empathy from this trip to Indonesia to see the sulfur mines. - 18:00 - when he travels tries not to be the typical tourist, instead tries to immerse himself into the world around him, the culture, the people… tries now to make trips longer to be able to appreciate culture better. Says that is how people should look at travel. Pitch: video production company - create story driven videos for businesses so people can see what you stand for and to show your uniqueness; create videos to get to the core of your business Find out more about Joel at: https://anchor.fm/entrepreneurstribe Www.tapeyourtime.com https://videothatsell.com/made-different https://www.linkedin.com/in/joelongvideo/ Want to know more about your bowtied host?

Anthony English is a business coach who can help you with various aspects of business and sales. But that’s a topic for later… much later. LIke when you contact him on LinkedIn where he’s most active. But who is Anthony English? And… Why did he spend several minutes discussing birds, kangaroos, crocodiles and tourists?

Learning to accept your circumstances in life, owning them and learning from them... that is Nick’s story here. Be in charge of your own reality. Understand the importance of communication, using/understanding the correct words (Story of “starving” v “hungry” he told his son). Listen here for Nick’s take on life’s journey, and his approach to this journey. 1:30 - “Journey of Self-Discovery” is what life should be. When one starts coasting through life it’s typically downhill… because we can’t coast uphill. 6:25 - “self inspection” something we as humans need but avoid, can be scary, intimidating; we tell ourselves stories to feel better, making excuses… and you know what they say about excuses… 9:00 - story of his friend who was successful, but not happy. Suffered from depression... but turned his life around. 12:30 - Married with Children; thought he found the one… she wasn’t. Maybe it was the Bob Bons? If you don’t like your circumstances, own them and move on (unlike the original Married with Children). 17:40 - make mistakes; don’t be afraid; learn from your mistakes. You are in charge of creating your own reality; teaches his two kids this, and how to communicate correctly; the inability to communicate is a problem with society today. Pitch - reconnected with a friend and former client after a trip around Australia; psychometrics to help business makers to select who are the right people to work with (their role and the culture). Business software provides platform to push job applicants through to determine suitability.. -offers free trial with anyone who gets hold of him for this. www.Matchd.com  Want to know more about your bowtied host?

Lee After Dark Ep29: Joel Hawbaker
Joel is a 9th grade teacher, Oxford grad., plays soccer, studies history and loves to read (especially CS Lewis and JR Tolken). Discovered Tolken while at Oxford (the movie “Lord of the Rings” released). Since he reads the book before seeing the movie, he read Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, then watched the movie. Now he reads both books once every year. So here’s the question Joel asks (among others): How does an Oxford grad., someone who is a vociferous reader, a teacher, author, and coach… someone who is considered an intelligent human… screw up so often around women? And how is this relevant? I have no idea. For the answers to this and other questions that arise, please dive into this podcast for an interesting discussion with Joel Hawbacker, teacher and lover of books and history. 1:30 - JR Tolken - favorite author after reading him while attending Oxford, in England. Saw the original movie but, read the books (The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings) first before going to the movie. 4:00 - Books are life changing for him. Wrote an article comparing CS Lewis and JR Tolken that was published. Incorporates lessons from his reading into the classroom. 7:16 - “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” JR Tolken One of many lessons in these stories/books. 9:25 - the best hearted people can always screw up (story of Sam and Gollum). Much of his classroom teachings are from books he has read. 16:10 - here the discussion evolves into his inherent ability to antagonize women of all ages. (Ex. talking with ex-wife about movies they watched in bed while his girlfriend was present). Pitch - author, speaker and coach - helps people who are divorced and remarried Learn more about Joel and connect at https://reallifeleading.com/.   Want to know more about your bowtied host?

Lee After Dark Ep19 - Stef Katz
In this episode, we take a thoughtful look through Stef, at a person’s dealing with bullying as a child, and the long term effects on self confidence years later as an adult.  This discussion takes us from the childhood thoughts of feeling rejected, or “defective” as she puts it, because she was a geek (she loved Star Trek and became a lifelong fanatic)... to realizing at the age of 50 in Orlando’s Disney World Star Trek exhibit that indeed, she was not defective, but she is a geek.  Her family has also dealt with their daughter’s cancer (now recovered and in college). Happily a geek and in knowing she cares little for what others think of her, Stef now uses her life to help others.  Join us on this brief somber but positive journey with someone who has learned to accept not only life, but herself.     ntro: How I realized “I wasn’t defective, I was just a geek.” Into Star Trek from the get go (age 15) 2:30 - At Disney World with son (2017) and realized she wasn’t defective, and she was still a geek… and these are my people.

Changed their outlook on life, but caused a loss of friends. Friends seemed to be afraid to talk about it or to ask her about her daughter’s cancer, so they drifted apart. Pitch: Make a Wish Trip - was a difference maker for her daughter.
