Program 101 – LIVE – Smart People Learn Smart Money

The reactions we have to money directly correlate to our experiences with money, so tune in and listen to Jess Dewell’s talk with James Adams (an author and financier). Regardless of our situation, we make conscious and unconscious money choices. The allure of alchemy, making gold out of other stuff, is something that attracts us … and has for centuries.

Program 98 LIVE – Let Go of the Baloney

 Information overload makes people lump all kinds of things together in hopes that the ensuing mishmash gets results. From stress to chaos, we all like shortcuts. When rashly deciding to take that shortcut, we end up making more work for ourselves (and everyone around us). But there is a sequence of thought actions that will help to avoid this situation! First, we choose to see what baloney we’ve allowed ourselves to create. Second, we notice it without judgement. Third, we decide if it’s good (for us) and actively engage to stay the same or change. In this episode, Jess...

Program 97 – The Language of Listening

Ralph Young joins Jess Dewell to discuss the language of listening as it pertains to client relationships, so we can learn to better respond to situations we find ourselves in and achieve the results we want.

Scope creep! Stalled! Stuck! Overwhelmed!!! These are just a few of the experiences and feelings that occur when we’ve taken on too much. What if we noticed ourselves, our team, our company going down that path before realizing we’re stretched too thin?

Program 94 – Integrity: We Have It Until It’s Gone

The elements of integrity – and how to keep integrity – is by knowing ourselves. With over 70 people visiting The Voice of Bold Business in the last year, we’ve heard many experiences that point to something – a tangible quantity that exists on our periphery. Something that comes from within ourselves, yet is only as strong as others’ perceptions of us. Something we all start with and we all have. Through our choices we either keep or lose this most essential presence. Trust is a part of what I’m describing; trust, though, can be rebuilt over time. Credibility...
