    GRACEbreak Radio | Be Prepared to Take Risk & Innovate

    in Business

    When you are prepared to imagine, innovate, and risk within your gift set you are no longer living within the set standard of average! ~ Tracy Worley

    Who are you inviting to the dance floor to innovate, collaborate, and have fun?

    We all have risk and either we embrace it or do everything in our power to avoid it. Imagine the playground where a group of children are jumping off the top of the monkey bars and then there are the few who stand at the edge pacing waiting for the school bell to ring so they do not have to jump.

    I want to encourage you to JUMP! Not in the sense of physical, mental, or spiritual harm but to really jump back into a childlike state and use your imagination, create, and innovate right where you stand. Ken Robinson states the risk of imagination eloquently, be prepared to be wrong. When you are prepared to risk, be wrong, and basically stand there looking like an idiot you are onto something!

    The risk takers are the ones you watch rise to the next level, the risk takers are the ones who are creating original ideas.

    "To create sustained innovation excellence..it is necessary to create innovation platforms and netowkrs of individuals within them where the selected innovative individuals can share with each other, be lead, and GROW." ~ Davila, Epstein, Shelton

    You are meant to have a life and career of significance so embrace your natural gifts, talents, wisdom, and knowledge to create original ideas.

    Look UP & OUT!

    Innovate Your Brain: Chris Steely of BizKickers

    in Entrepreneur

    So how do you prepare for this new economy?  It is high-tech and evolving quickly.  It is also low wage for workers and low margin for businesses.  The key to success appears to be innovation.  But not just technological innovation -- but mind innovation.  It’s something I have heard Chris Steely talk about for years now.  Chris is a business consultant and trainer.  His site is www.bizkickers.com.  He explains how to innovate your mind.  He also cites some good books.

    3:40-6:08 So when we talk about innovation… how do you innovate yourself? … deploy like never done before… innovate how we think… how we deliver a solution… new economy … in this new economy.”

    How do you innovate your brain for this new economy?

    It’s really the metaphor of sharpening the edge… Stephen Covey… Quantum Warrior by John Kehoe… leaders are readers… Success leaves clues: Jim Rone … getting out in community… what you don’t know … science of programming language of your brain … we are all Einstein to some extent … we all get to heed it.”

    I think awareness is the key… Secret cliché… Secret doesn’t talk about taking effective action… systems of leadership … track your business… read… seminars… to get results.”

    My take-away from this one:  It is not easy out there.  This is a new economy.  And you need to understand the new economy and then know the rules or if you are innovative enough recreate the rules.  That’s informed not inflamed.  Catch you next time.

    Achieving Automation, Functional Safety, and Efficiency in Commercial Vehicles

    in Technology

    In an environment of growing safety concerns, decreasing driver resources, increasing infrastructure congestion, and rising costs, it has become more important than ever that the commercial vehicle industry find new ways to innovate. The top trucking OEM’s are working tirelessly to develop automation to allow for increased fleet efficiency, maximized driver productivity, better fuel economy, and above all safety.

    While the autonomous truck has been defined as the way forward to achieve these outcomes, the technology is still far from flawless and not ready for full implementation. There are a variety of critical challenges ranging from software capabilities to hardware competencies and onto strategic planning inhibitors preventing this technology from complete adoption.

    Topic of Discussion: Beating Breast Cancer while Building A Business

    “I strut with passion, optimism and confidence.  I am definitely a Soleful Diva!” says Damitra “Metta” Sorden- Viera, shoe designer and owner of Soles 4 Divas, a mobile shoe boutique based in Baltimore, MD.  Damitra’s passion for fashion was cultivated at the age of seven by watching her mother, a former model, pose and strut in stylish clothing and accessories. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Damitra began modeling locally and learned about the business of fashion, which slowly sparked her entrepreneurial dreams.

    This Diva’s true passion for style demanded her entrepreneurial attention as well and in February 2011, she began Soles 4 Divas, her booming shoe boutique which boasts the motto "Accessorizing your Walk, While Dazzling Your Destiny". She streamlined her philanthropic heart and fashion-savvy mind by enclosing a motivational quote in everypair of shoes that is purchased.  Her ultimate goal is to speak, touch, help and inspire every woman in one way or another. Damitra’s business and personal accomplishments have made her a woman on the move. 

    She has been recognized for her continuous effort to inspire and innovate.  She received the Woman of Power Award, Joe Mann’s Award, Distinguished Woman Award, has been featured in Essence Magazine, 2 time exclusive shoe designer for runway fashion show New York City Mercedes Benz Fashion Week alongside international designer, Cesar Gallindo. She has contributed powerful messages and dazzling shoes to woman-empowerment events.  With all of these accomplishments, her biggest testimony comes from being a breast cancer survivor and breast cancer advocate and speaker for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Foundation, and now Soles 4 The Cure.

  • Innovation: What is next in Technology

    in Business

    Innovation as defined is a new idea or product.  Innovation is an important part of the lifecycle of our businesses. This new idea / product is how our businesses start full of excitement, enthusiasm and vigor. We build our business around this product and get heavily involved in the day to day. Often not having enough time to see the future of our business and continue fostering new ideas, the very new ideas that will keep us in business. If we are not proactive and continuing to bring new ideas and innovation we will find ourselves at the end of the lifecycle of our business. The best time to innovate is not when we are in atrophy with our business but when your business is thriving. You want to be the one to cannibalize your business not someone else.


    Today we are going to talk about innovation and what is next in Technology
