Band Aids

Transcript: It used to be, in days gone by, you’d see people  have little pieces of string tied around one of their fingers, and they’d leave it there as a reminder for something that they didn’t want to forget later in the day. It seems funny now; we’ve got cellphones and beeps and boops and different gadgets to help us...

Awareness On Ice

Awareness On Ice

In the speaking world, it seems like everybody wants to ask everybody else, “What’s your topic? What’s your area of expertise? What are you an expert on?” So they ask me what are my topics, and I think they’re expecting me to say, “How to increase your sales by 20%” or,  “Five success habits guaranteed to change your life today.”...

Eat Cake

Eat Cake

To do what we love and to love what we do is to have our own cake and to eat the thing too. So why don’t we? “To have your cake and to eat it too.” That’s an old phrase I remember. I always took it to mean, “Don’t be selfish. Be grateful for what you have. “You want to...

How to EAT Adversity – Jerod Ward | Journeys with the No Schedule Man, Ep. 66

The question this week is … how are you going to respond when adversity strikes? What about when it strikes again after that? And again after that? How many times are you willing to get back up?

More Than Words, “How To” & Helping Out vs. Selling Out

Ah, “More Than Words.” I’ll get to that song in just a couple of moments. But when it comes to words, there are two of them that give me the willies, especially when I use them, because when I do, I’m really torn between whether I’m doing the responsible thing, or recklessly selling out. In 1990, the band Extreme released...

Racing In Circles: A Case For Awareness

Racing In Circles: A Case For Awareness

I don’t think I realized what was happening at the time, but a lot of what I’ve learned about what works and what doesn’t work, in business and in life, I learned when I was here (overlooking the race track). I used to manage this place (Delaware Speedway), you know. As strange as that seems to say now looking back,...

What is a Brand? What is it not? The “Outer Space Test”

Over the last almost 20 years, I’ve had the great pleasure of working with all kinds of people in just about every variety of business that I can imagine. In that time, one of the things that I would get asked about the most, particularly from small business people and entrepreneurs, was about the word “brand.” And more specifically, what...
