    Robbi Hess on Expert Insights Radio!

    in Self Help

    3pm ET / 2pm CT / 1pm MT / 12pm PT


    (Outside US: Dial 00 + 1 + 646-727-1711)


    Viki Winterton interviews Robbi Hess!


    Robbi is a journalist, pet blogger, copywriter and business owner who is also a three-year breast cancer “thriver.” Diagnosed three weeks before her 50th birthday, she briefly gave into fear and anger at the diagnosis and at the life-shattering, life-altering surgeries she faced.


    Because she had so much to live for, she dove into researching the best general and plastic surgeons, radiology and medical oncologists and relied on her family, her faith and her online support group, The Booby Buddies, to travel the road ahead. She kept her business going and came out the other side with an appreciation for living in the moment.


    She now speaks to groups about time management and conquering the overwhelm for business owners. She shares the lessons she’s learned with facing a devastating diagnosis, keeping a business running and doing it all in in a manner that now offers her an actual work/life balance.

    January Jones- My Father's Teeth-Josh Mitchell

    in Movies

    Writer, director and publicist Josh Mitchell is originally from Boston, but currently lives in the heart of Hollywood. In July of 2014, he published his first novel, The Dude Who Did Dictionaries, the story of a man who leaves his high-paying job as a advertising copywriter to instead work in a bookstore and attempt to write the world’s first all-sexual dictionary. A sprawling, gritty depiction of a recession-afflicted world, The Dude Who Did Dictionaries is a gripping account of one man’s fatalistic downward spiral.


    In August of 2014, Mitchell released Pissing on the Pulse of the Planet, a book that offers unique musings on sex, politics and pop culture, all viewed through the lens of Mitchell’s subversive comedic wit.
    Mitchell recently wrote, directed and starred in Lack of Cockery, a feature film about a venture capitalist who finds himself questioning his perspective on identity, life and love.


    Meanwhile, Mitchell’s public relations company, Wickid Pissa Publicity, has become one of the most in-demand firms in the entertainment industry, offering services ranging from marketing, branding and event production and management.

    Spirit, Mind and Money with Dawn DelVecchio

    in Spirituality

    Join Catch Your Spirit with featured guest Dawn DelVecchio for this episode on Spirit, Mind & Money.  From Dawn's new book it is intended to open up a conversation with the growing number of practitioners, healers, teachers, coaches, artists and heart-centered change-agents who truly want to be of service in the world. People who feel the calling to have greater positive impact, yet find themselves held back due to one or more of the following obstacles…


    - A challenge translating their work into a meaningful message that attracts paying clients and customers.


    - A lack key business-building skills.


    - An outworn “blueprint” about money that locks them into financial limitation.


    According to Dawn, when you use what is offered in this book to gain insight, you are taking the first step toward healing and wholing your relationship to Money, Service and Success.


    Dawn DelVecchio is a professional copywriter, marketing consultant and entrepreneurial business coach. She’s also been a luxury travel writer, a magazine editor, a professional kick boxer, kick boxing coach, even an astrologer. Until recently, these diverse career paths shared one common denominator … they kept her close to broke.


    Today, and particularly with her Best-Selling book, Dawn is leading a new conversation about the relationship between Money, Service and Success, and how this impacts a growing segment of our society she refers to as Holistic Business Owners.

    "I used to drive a BMW, now I get around in a wheelchair."

    in Self Help

    Join Christy Demetrakis and her special guest Wolfgang Wolf for  "I used to drive a BMW, now I get around in a wheelchair."  Tuesday, September 15th at  6:30pm EST.


     


    About Wolfgang Wolf:


    Wolfgang Wolf was born in 1951 in Leipzig, GDR, he was taken by his parents to West Germany (FRG) at the age of 10 months because his father was sentenced to 18 years in Siberia for an alleged assassination attempt on the Russian dictator Joseph Stalin.       
                                                                 
    He grew up in a refugee camp near Stuttgart until 1957. Having studied Visual Communication, Semiotics and Communication Theory , Wolfgang went on to work in Advertising and Direct Marketing (first as graphic designer, later a copywriter).  In 1980 he emigrated to New Zealand, travelled up and down the country, photographed a lot, co-founded Ogilvy & Mather Direct, and was their Creative Director. He worked half a year in Los Angeles, USA, and founded his own agency in Auckland, New Zealand, in 1985. 


    Then in 1990 he had a major stroke, which he barely survived. It left him in a wheelchair, unable to write, barely able to stand, and talk. He did not give up and feel sorry for himself, but went on to orchestrate this change to his new life, and take control of it. While he recovered and adjusted to life in a wheelchair he wrote the book "I’m not stupid, just disabled", which is out of print now, but a revised, version based on it is available on Amazon/Kindle.

  • Show #123: Employee Engagement for the Individual and Team - Which Comes First?

    in Business

    Special Guest: Jamie Lawrence, Editor, HRZone.com


    Effective engagement requires both an individual and collective focus but it seems that many companies focus on engaging the individual rather than thinking about the collective units – teams. The basic unit at work is the team, with a line manager at the helm, and there’s an argument that human beings as social creatures require high levels of engagement with their social working environment as a pre-requisite to individual engagement. Is it a chicken or egg scenario? Should companies be focusing on both from different, or similar, angles? Either way, as more research looks at group effectiveness and inclusiveness at work, there’s doubt we need to focus more on engaging the collective as well as the individual.


    Jamie Lawrence is editor of global online HR publication and community HRZone.com He regularly speaks to audiences of 250+ and has interviewed key HR industry names, including Daniel H. Pink. Jamie has worked previously as a small business journalist and a copywriter and has published non-fiction that reached #2 in the NYT Children’s Bestseller List. Jamie is committed to driving forward the HR agenda through HRZone.com and making sure that HR Directors have the knowledge and insight necessary to ensure HR has influence across the whole organisation.
