In this Boomtank Fast Take episode, we explore the power of your truth. What does "the power of your truth" mean? I am not talking about global truths or every day truths. The focus here is on you and your personal truth. The truth you have within you. The truth no one can touch, no one can change. The core of you, your very essence - and what this means, to you and your business. Tune in and enjoy!

What does exploring your next level mean? I'm not crazy about using the “f” word, which is “failure” – but let’s go with it. Is failure real or is it a pure correction - to change your direction. Oprah says failure is feedback. It points you on the correct path. How true. She says there is no such thing as failure and countless entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial authors say the same. We need to go a bit deeper. I am going to ask you a novel question.  Are things not working because you are playing too small? What if, the powers that be – for me you know it’s God – are not parting the seas for your business choices or actions the way you like.  Could it be because you are  choosing to remain small and invisible? What if, you will only receive the divine support you seek, once you start playing in the realm where you should be appearing? Something to ponder. Tune in and enjoy!

In this Friday Fast Take episode, I talk about the power of your voice. The power of your voice is something you realize only when you use it. Introverted, extroverted or somewhere in between, we all must use our voice to promote our businesses, our causes and our particular brand of help. Actually practice speaking and/or writing more about what really matters to you, what you can teach, how you can help - and learn to be free of the good opinion of others (as Maslow said). Do not let the noise of others’ opinions “drown out your inner voice” and your outer voice. Speak, write – whatever it is you should be doing and do more of it daily. The more you do it, the easier it gets and the more confident you become. Get out there and have your messages heard! Remember, it’s your mission. Use your voice to live it. - Tune in and enjoy!

In this Fast Take Friday episode, I talk about the power of dreams - conscious dreams. The ones that fill you with hope and possibilities. All of our capabilities have a purpose and so does dreaming. The power to dream is yours, mine and others, for a reason. Every wonder what that reason is? Listen, as I explore the answer with you.

In this episode of the Boomtank Business Show, I interview Soness Stevens a leading, international TED Talk Coach living in Japan. Her Japanese clients have a 100% acceptance rate to TED and TEDx talks in Japan. Her global clients have a crazy high TED and TEDx talk acceptance rate of 85% for talks around the world.This interview is for those of you interested in public speaking and perhaps even, giving your own TED or TEDx talk. Ted speakers are chosen if they offer a unique perspective and/or fresh new idea to the world. Soness says Chris Anderson, largely viewed as the founder of TED Talks, believes “Everyone has an idea worth spreading.” What's yours?  In this interview, Soness takes you through the “5 Wise Why’s” to figure that out. This is highly valuable TED Talk coaching. We cover a lot of ground. Keep in mind, TED Talks are not here to build your brand and business. They are not a pitch. They exist solely to promote ideas. That said, an understandable byproduct of giving a TED Talk is the resulting launch effect it can have for you, your brand, your business and potentially your speaker career, if that’s a focus for you. - Tune in and enjoy! -

In this episode, I salute Mega Business Coach Ali Brown and her “State of the Union” address, for online businesses. This episode is not an interview, but rather a salute to Ali  for two of her recent Glambition podcast show episodes. If you do business online, this is important and a must listen.

Things have changed in how business is done online and we all must respond to that change. Even Ali is charting a new direction. The old ways are not working, or at least not working as well as they once did. Ali has a warning call and a remedy for what she terms “the launch bubble”, which she predicted two years ago would happen and she was right. It is happening now in the online business space. She likens it to the “housing bubble” of recent memory.

Ali's first episode is titled, "Stop the Online Insanity!", Glambition Episode 105. The second is titled, "Bold Ways to Break Away From the Pack", Glambition Episode 109. I quickly summarize these episodes, with some additional thoughts of my own.

You can find links to Ali’s two episodes in the show notes for this Boomtank episode, on - Tune in and enjoy!
