We're inundated with so much content, information and advice growing up about what we should do for work, what we should value, but how do we really find something we enjoy. Something that lights the fire within us. What happens if we're just stumbling through life and looking for more meaning. How do we find something we care about, whether it be something we want to do for a living or just as a hobby.

When we think about connecting with people, building relationships both online and offline, we think about what we are going to say and ask, but not so much on how we listen to them. A case can be made that listening is taken for granted sometimes, it's not something were taught, yet when we are able to use it effectively, can greatly improve our performance in the world of sales, management and general day to day life.
This week I'm joined by Founder of The Sound Agency, 5 times TED speaker (with over 40 million views) and Author of How to be Heard, Julian Treasure.

The world of sales is an ever changing beast. The way in which customer's buy has evolved, even in the last 12 months and looks to continue that way into the upcoming year. A big growth area not just in sales, but society, has been social media, which has seen the way we consume, buy and sell evolve. To stay ahead of the curve we need to adapt and embrace these advancements in social media, but when it comes to social selling, it's far more than what you may first think, and something that will elevate you, if you're able to utilise it.
This week's guest on Not Another Sales Podcast is Social Selling Expert, CEO of The Daily Sales Page (which has over 350k subscribers) and Speaker Daniel Disney.
Daniel and I discuss what the misconceptions of social selling are, why it's important to build into your sales approach, what to avoid when doing so and some great tips on how to implement it straight away, whether you're a beginner or looking to advance your social selling. If you want to start the year with the insights needed to social selling with impact, then tune in!
Stop telling yourself you can't do it, can't afford it, can't complete it. Instead, start asking yourself how can I do it? how can I afford it? how can I complete it?
Our brains are like a Google search engine. Whatever you type in, your brain will look to support or answer it. If you're always saying I can't. Well guess what, your brain will find all the reasons to support this! But if you start asking the question "how can I?" then your brain starts working out ways to create a plan.
Our self-talk is integral for us achieving success, it's the foundations that everything else is built on. Join me for this episode where I share some tips and a questioning process to start ensuring your self-talk remains positive.
Let's a take a Formula 1 race, where every second counts. You can have the best car, mechanics, team etc, but if you don't get a good start off the grid then you're playing catch up for the rest of the race. The same applies for your everyday life; if you don't start it right, then you'll be facing a battle from the off. In this episode I share a handful of tips to be mindful of at the start of the day. Implementing these will see you start your day with positive intentions and set you up for success.
We all have a variety of thoughts and emotions that can limit us being present or achieving our potential. To overcome these thoughts or "head trash as one of my guest's Jackie Hermes put it, you can use something called Clearing the Space. It will allow you to be present in the moment, identify what is at the heart of your worries and ensure you're performing at your potential. In this episode I share with you 3 steps to action this to help you unclutter your mind.
The world we live in is constantly evolving, with new advancements in technology and society, all impacting how we live our lives. These advancements are helping support us in our growth and success, but before we can truly utilise them, we need to start by looking within ourselves. It's very easy to get caught looking externally for the answers of success, but it all starts with you, the traits you were born with and the ones you can develop to shape a mindset for success.
Join me this week with my guest; Founder of VU Dream, Host of Humans 2.0, a top 100 podcast, Mark Metry.

Have you ever tried to start a new diet plan, take up a hobby or even attempt to change the way you do something in your business? Do you find yourself at the start you're enthused by it, but then over time it seems to drop off and you're back to where you started? Chances are, with new year around the corner, a lot of you have some resolutions in mind. But did you know by February 84% of these new year resolutions have been broken. The aim of all of this is creating new habits within your life, whether they be personal or business, but how do we truly create habits but help us perform and reach our potential? Also why is it that we find it so hard to make these changes stick? To do this we need to go through a journey of true transformation, but where do we start and what does that consist of?

We are so busy these days "doing", that we very rarely take the time to reflect. This type of approach can mean we are constantly chasing our next goal, without actually being grateful for what we currently have. This can lead to an endless chase for things that will never truly make us feel content. To overcome this, gratitude is an essential aspect to understand and regularly practice. Gratitude is our emotion that relates to our ability to feel and express thankfulness and appreciation. But how do we become more mindful of it and utilise it on a daily basis?
On this weeks episode of Not Another Sales Podcast I'm joined by Award winning Author, Host and Speaker Dr Karin Luise.
Karin and I will be discussing what we mean by gratitude, how it can have a positive impact in both our everyday lives and business. We'll also be sharing some practical tips on how you can begin to focus and practice it on a regular basis.

When scrolling through your social feeds, you'll come across the word "influencer" in someone's summary or a discussion on being an influencer. Influence is essential to your long term success, whether that's in your career or growing a business. Influence can't be demanded, it must be earned. Influence comes down to knowing where you want to go and being able to inspire and motivate others around you to help you push towards that destination. But how do you go about growing your influence to get others around you to buy in to your vision and your solution?
On this week's episode of Not Another Sales Podcast I'm joined by Personal Branding & Growth Expert, Beyond Influential Podcast Host, Brittany Krystle.
We'll be discussing what we mean by influence, the mindset needed to grow your influence and why it's important. They'll also be some insightful and practical tips for you to use on growing your influence to achieve success, whether that's amongst your peers or to a greater audience. If you want to get a true understanding of influence and how to grow yours, then tune in!
So you've got a clear niche, you're confident in how you present and know you resonate with your audience, but how do you go about actually getting in front of them in a proactive way? As a speaker, you can have all the talent and knowledge in the world, but unless you're looking for opportunities to speak, you will stunt your potential and opportunities. Getting in front of your audience is fundamental to your impact and success as a speaker. Your personal brand plays a part here, but you also need to looking for opportunities, rather than just waiting for them.
In the final episode of the Public Speaking Toolkit week on Not Another Sales Podcast, I'm joined by Personal Branding & Growth Expert Brittany Krystle, CEO & 5x TEDx Speaker Bobby Umar & Marketer & LinkedIn Content Creator Fabio Marrama.
If you want to get some great tips to gaining more speaking gigs, both online and offline, to ensure you increase your exposure and experience, then tune in!
The sign of a great speaker isn't just how they make you feel and think when in front of you, but also what you recall about them following their speech or video. Being memorable is a golden thread throughout all the great speakers of history and present day; how people are able to recall their talks, their messages and how they made them think and feel about topics. Being memorable is vital to speaking, without it you won't see a continued return of your audience online or recurring bookings offline. Being memorable is how you make the real difference as a speaker.
To talk about this I'm joined by Marketer & LinkedIn Content Creator Fabio Marrama, CEO & Speaker Jackie Hermes & CEO & 5x TEDx Speaker Bobby Umar.
If you want to ensure you're making a lasting impression with your audience and always being front of mind when it comes to a speaker they want to listen to, then tune in for this!
We can be an expert in our field, we can communicate our thoughts in a conversation, but then as soon as we get in front of camera or on stage, it all changes. It's not our knowledge that lets us down, it's the thoughts racing through our head of worst case scenarios or what others will think. Stage fright is common, but as a speaker it's vital to overcome to be able to be your best and authentic self.
Today's episode features Professional Speaking Coach & Writer Sarah Jo Crawford, CEO, Brand Strategist & Storyteller Quentin Allums & Speaker, Marketer & LinkedIn Content Creator Fabio Marrama.
If you want to know how you can begin to overcome your stage fright, meaning you'll be more relaxed, authentic and in turn allow the audience to relax and enjoy your content, then tune in!
Before you have an idea of someone wanting to book you as a speaker, they've probably done their homework; watched some YouTube clips, read your blog, seen your LinkedIn profile. So the question is; what does all of this content say about you; is it how you want to be perceived and is it consistent?
This is just an example of the elements that make up your personal brand; how people see you/talk about you when you're not in the room. Without a strong personal brand you'll miss out on opportunities without even knowing they existed and also struggle to build a strong interest in the content you're sharing!
In today's episode I'm joined by Personal Branding & Growth Expert Brittany Krystle, CEO & Speaker Jackie Hermes & Professional Speaking Coach & Writer Sarah Jo Crawford.
If you're looking to build and grow your personal brand to ensure you're creating first impressions that get you noticed, people captivated and more interest in hearing you speak, then tune in!
With the world in which we live in now, it's never been easier to share our opinion and get our voice heard and face seen. Public speaking in no longer just reserved for the well known and famous; anyone with a camera phone can begin to hone their craft.
But with this comes some important questions; how do I stand out from the crowd? build my brand? get more confident with speaking? be more memorable? get more speaking opportunities?
All of these questions are answered on this week's daily podcast editions of Not Another Sales Podcast - The Public Speaking Toolkit. Each day you'll receive some great insights and tips from three different guests ensuring you succeed with your public speaking, both online and on stage.
The first episode is focused on finding your niche!
The challenge that comes with it never being easier to become a speaker in some format, is how busy and crowded some spaces can be. So therefore it's essential you define your difference; both for your own benefit to decide who you want to resonate with and from the audience perspective, why they would want to listen/watch you.
In today's episode I'm joined by CEO & Speaker Jackie Hermes, CEO & 5x TEDx Speaker Bobby Umar & CEO, Brand Strategist & Storyteller Quentin Allums.
If you want some great insights on how you can define your niche, ensuring you are able to stand out from the crowd and be clear on the direction you're heading in, then tune in!
o productivity can be seen by many as something that's very focused towards skills; having lists, planners etc, but I believe it all starts with having a productive mindset - gives you clarity for your strategy
"I'm so busy, I haven't even had time to think today" - sound familiar? You have so many things on a daily basis, both in life and business, that you feel you need to do. You spend all day “doing” things and running around. Then suddenly it’s 5pm and you’re finishing for the day and you think back and feel you've not really got what you wanted done. How did that happen?
I’m guessing you’ve experienced this before, maybe more often than you would like to admit. You feel like you’re “working” all the time but never progressing or completing things. It’s not down to being lazy or not being motivated to achieve your goals. It’s because of your mindset.
Join Entrepreneur, Bestselling Author of "Is Your Business Worth Saving?" & Podcaster Stacy Tuschl and I on this week's episode of Not Another Sales Podcast to talk all about creating a productive mindset.
Stacy and I will talking about what attributes and traits go into cultivating a productive mindset and how it's more than just having a strategy or good organisation. We're also sharing some of the biggest productivity killers that get in the way and how you can become more focused on developing and maintaining a productive mindset. If you're constantly feeling like you're always busy, but not getting the output from your input, then tune in!
Being seen, both in person and on video, is an essential part in growing your brand, both personal and business, in today's busy and crowded marketplace. But there are so many of us that fear the thought of getting up on stage or in front of a camera to do this. When you look at what stops or makes us fearful, all of it starts in the mind. So if you want to become more comfortable and confident at talking out loud in front of people, you need to start with the inner voice.
In this week's episode I'm joined by CEO, Speaker and a growing influencer in the world of LinkedIn Jackie Hermes.
Jackie and I will be talking about why it's essential to focus on your mindset and behaviours towards public speaking before the practicality and skills of doing it. We'll also share our thoughts on what some of the greatest speaker's in the world possess and how you can become more confident and comfortable with public speaking, whether that be to 1 or 100 people or on camera. Jackie will also be sharing her story so far, including what she's learnt most about herself along the way.
How do I attract new customers? This is a common question you see asked and answered on daily basis. There's always some new ways of doing this, with the power of technology and social supporting this. But how often do you ask this question within your business; how do I work out who I shouldn't work with? You see when you are only looking at how to attract new customers, and not enough time focused on spotting those you shouldn't work with, you will face challenges further down the road.
In this week's episode I'm joined by CEO and award winning social media marketer Rachel Pedersen.
We'll be talking about firstly why you should look to avoid trying to work with everyone, the pitfalls of doing so and how you can become more equipped to identify the types of customers you should avoid working with. Be sure to tune in, to be equipped with ways to spot the wrong type of customers and how it will benefit you in the long run!
A hot topic of debate is always what habits, behaviours and skills contribute towards making people successful. One of these elements that sets the successful apart is rooted within human psychology. It centres around 3 A's; Acceptance, Attention & Approval and how high value human beings are able to give this versus beg or compete for it.
I'm joined by John Sanei, best-selling author, global speaker and trend specialist with a holistic approach to achieving future-readiness.
John shares his definition of what it means to be a higher value human being, how it's essential to our success and why we're not all able to make the instant choice to become one. John will also be sharing his story, coming back from bankruptcy, what inspires him and his purpose.
So if you want to take a deeper look and understanding into how you can work towards becoming a higher value human being and what it can bring to you in terms of success and enlightenment, then tune in.
"A boss has the title. A leader has the people" Simon Sinek. Leadership is something that is still very misunderstood, particularly what actually goes into making someone a great leader. We can all recall in our careers, some great examples and equally bad ones of leaders. So what exact ingredients go into making the recipe for great leaders and how do we begin to start focusing and developing these, to become great leaders ourselves?
This week I'm joined by Best Selling Author of The Leadership Gap, TEDx speaker and Executive Coach Lolly Daskal.
Lolly and I will be answering this question of what a great leader, what we need to draw from within ourselves to lead, what are the biggest blockers to preventing people from becoming great leaders and how you can begin to develop your leadership skills, which will align you to becoming a great leader. This is for anyone, whether you're in a leadership position or not, who feels they want to inspire and empower individuals around them.
You may scroll your social media feed each day and see numerous posts designed to motivate and inspire you. You probably see the #motivation on a daily basis, but what does it really mean to be motivated? Mel Robbins says motivation is never there when you need it and this is down to the lack of understanding of what motivation is. There are myths of motivation that need clarity to ensure motivation is seen and used in the right way.
In this episode I'm joined by Success Coach and Writer Lisa Jeffs.
Lisa and I are going to be delving into the meaning of motivation; why people struggle with a lack of it at times, the myths surrounding motivation and how you can become more effective at understanding motivation and how to use it. Lisa will also be delving into her story of what she's learnt about herself along the way and what her intrinsic motivators are. If you are looking to increase your awareness of motivation, to truly understand it and how to utilise it, then tune in!
We are creatures of habit. We feel safe when we know what is going to occur is our daily life. When this feeling of security and the known is challenged by the perceived uncertainty and the unknown, we become uneasy and unsure of how we should react. Having the fear of change can have some strong negative impacts on our life, stopping us from exploring what we're capable of.
In the final instalment of Face Your Fears week, I'm joined by Founder of Mindful Talent and Executive Coach Alister Gray, Change Specialist & Head Coach at imachangemaker.com Andrew Tilling and NLP Practitioner and Coach Sarah Gregg.
They'll be sharing some unmissable actions you can take to become more equipped at dealing with change and also altering your perception of change. If you feel like you consistently struggle to deal with change and sometimes resist it, then this episode is for you!
Inspiration can occur at any point. We can be watching a YouTube video, talking to friends or have a eureka moment in the shower. This inspiration can lead us to starting something, whether that's a diet or launching a business. Great we've started, but how many times do you start something only to fall back into an old habit. Did you know 80% of new year's resolutions are broken by February! Our lack of consistency can make it hard for us to stay the course and can therefore sometimes lead us back to square one.
In this episode I'm joined by Sales & Leadership Coach Dee Mullin, Success Coach & Writer Lisa Jeffs and Sales and Career Strategist Christine Sarno.
They'll be sharing some great insights and ways of dealing with this fear of being consistent, how you can ensure you maintain what you have started,therefore creating the habits to support this. If you always find yourself starting something new, only to find yourself a few weeks or months later giving up on it, then tune in!
Do you have something you keep putting off? Something you think you need more time to research or know more about? Is this a common habit that you find occurs regularly. This habit of overthinking is common within many of us as our brains are wired to protect us from perceived danger and to survive. Therefore we can become trapped in our thoughts of all the reasons why we shouldn't do something, which can mean we miss out on opportunities and fulfilling our potential.
Today's episode focuses on this very fear of overthinking and I'm joined by Change Specialist & Head Coach at imachangemaker.com Andrew Tilling, Success Coach and Writer Lisa Jeffs and Sales and Career Strategist Christine Sarno.
This episode will provide you some actionable insights into dealing with the process of overthinking and how you can prevent yourself from getting caught in the trap of it. If you're constantly overthinking every scenario, putting things off, thinking what could go wrong, then tune in!
The fear of failing is a common reason as to why we never start something, whether it be a passion or a business. We're naturally fearful of the unknown, with our mind creating all the possibilities of what could go wrong and also the fear of how we'll feel at the end of this. It can be crippling this fear and it can also be damaging when we do have perceived failures occur in our life.
In the second instalment of Face Your Fears week, I'm joined NLP Practitioner and Coach Sarah Gregg, Change Specialist & Head Coach at imachangemaker.com Andrew Tilling and Founder of Mindful Talent and Executive Coach Alister Gray.
My guests on the episode will be sharing their perception of why we sometimes have this innate fear of failure, where it stems from and most importantly how you can overcome this. If you are constantly worried about the end result or your perception towards failure being of a negative one, then tune in.
On a daily basis we directly and indirectly engage with people whose opinions may influence how we go about living our life. These opinions can be at times valuable, however we can also get into a state where we are constantly fearing what other people think and therefore not being able to be our true selves. We can go about life sometimes with a facade to as a result of this which provides no fulfilment and growth.
In the episode today I'm joined by Sales and Leadership Coach Dee Mullin, Founder of Mindful Talent and Executive Coach Alister Gray and NLP Practitioner and Coach Sarah Gregg.
They'll be providing you with some great insights into becoming more effective at dealing with other people's opinions and how you can become more mindful of how and who you spend your time with, to be able to get over this fear. If you feel like you're constantly worried about others opinions of you and your actions, then tune in!
We are educated about numerous things throughout life, but at no point are we really taught about how to truly understand or manage our emotions, if anything only on how to hide them. Emotions are actually neutral, they are neither positive or negative, it's our perception of them that pigeon holes them into either of these. All of our emotions are designed to support and aid us in some way, but to be able to utilise that we must rewire our thinking around them.
This week I'm joined again by Sales and Leadership Coach Dee Mullin.
Dee and I will be discussing in further detail why we have a misunderstanding of our emotions, some examples of where this very fact can impact us in a negative way and how we can begin to rewire our thinking around our emotions to ensure they serve us in a positive way. If you want to get some great insight and understanding of your emotional intelligence and how you can manage and understand it more effectively, then tune in!
As people we want to feel appreciated, enabled and valued by others. We expect nothing different in our career, but we have all experienced at some point, leaders who seem to miss the mark on this. There are a number of attributes that make great leaders, but one of the key ones is a leader knowing he doesn't always have to be the smartest person in the room. You see when leaders encourage others to shine, play to their strengths by letting others around them utilise their own, they lay the foundations for success to be built on.
In this episode I'm joined by CEO, Keynote Speaker and 5x TedX speaker, Bobby Umar.
Bobby and I are going to be discussing why it's essential leaders realise they don't always need to be the smartest person in the room, the impacts it can have on them and those around by ignoring this, along with how you, as a leader, can become more aligned to this. For anyone in a leadership role or looking to move into one, this episode is not to be missed!
With the world of social now, there is a limitless level of opportunity to engage and meet people virtually you would have the chance to years ago.

Change doesn't happen in an instance, it's a process over a period of time. But that process isn't always going to be easy. There's going to be times when you feel like quitting or that you've taken a step backwards. Patience is integral to change in the long term, but so is consistency, in the short term. It will take time, but you need to be consistent over that time, whilst having the patience to remind yourself it won't be instant.
In this episode I'm joined by Top 40 Under 40 Award Winner, Digital Marketer and Speaker Fabio Marrama.

Having a clear vision and goals are important ingredients for success, but these alone are not enough. You need to have a plan of how you're going to execute on these goals and most importantly hold yourself accountable to doing so on a consistent basis. Being accountable ensures you remind yourself regularly you're in control of your own success, to focus on what you can control and ensure you don't let it slip.

The road to success can be a challenging one, whether that be building a business or taking up a new hobby. You're going to face tough times, days where you find it hard to stay focused and times when you may wonder if you're capable of achieving your goals. To be able to deal with this you need to ensure you have a passion for what you're doing, a clear understanding within yourself of why you're pursuing something. It may take some time to find your passion and that's ok, it's natural, but once you do, it's important you become clear on how you can live it.
In this week's episode I'm joined by Speaker, Coach and Entrepreneur Regan Hillyer.
Regan and I will be talking about why it's important to find your passion, what can get in the way of this, how you can begin to live your passion and how you can get others to buy into your passion.

We live in a world now where we can access information within seconds and find numerous companies offering a solution to our problem within a few clicks.

In this episode I'm joined by Founder of Jbarrows Sales Training and Sales Trainer to some of the world's largest growing companies, John Barrows.
John and I will be discussing why we need to evolve how we sell, the challenges that we're faced in doing so and most importantly how you can begin to evolve how you sell, whatever the product or solution is. If you're thinking you don't need to, as your industry isn't impacted by this, or your customer's don't think that way, then you're already on the way to losing out.
