Ep. 207: Craig Ballantyne- From Crippling Anxiety to Motivational Speaker

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Craig- @craigballantyne

 

Intro

  • We become so productive at the wrong things, so we get too narrowly focused on cutting out the things that really matter to us
  • Be proactive
  • Your number one app is your mind

The Human Element

  • `A high achiever is never truly satisfied which is not always a bad thing
    • There is a high standard that they must live up to
  • Do not discount advice if you have not even tried it
  • The reality of life is that we are in control of our own behavior
  • Those that share the struggles in their life, opens a door to endless human connection
  • We all gravitate to our comfort zone
  • There is a fad that getting up at 5 am is the key to success… but it is not
    • It is about implementing so that you focus on things that matter
    • Create structure to have more freedom
  • Life is really all about people and experiences

Action Steps

  • Sit down by yourself for 15 minutes and work on solving the biggest problem in your life or taking advantage of an opportunity that you have.
    • Do that 6 times a week.
  • Find a professional accountability partner
    • People who will set the bar high for you
    • They will make you feel uncomfortable but do that because they love you

    • Are you sharing more info than is necessary?
    • Are you calling each other nicknames?
  • You are risking your reputation with colleagues
  • Business people who drink are more successful, because most deals are made in relaxed environments - golf courses, bars, happy hours
  • If a superior is making a pass, you could laugh and say, “Oh, my husband/wife/boyfriend/girlfriend would find that so funny!”
  • Social skills are important
  • Can a man and a woman be friends?
    • Extremely uncommon

Ep. 196: Marketing 101 and building a team that cares. Find out how from Tony Delmercado

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Tony- @tdelmercado 

How to build a team of amazing pros that care about each other, work hard and do phenomenal work for clients - which translates to revenue and happiness for all, on The Nice Guys Today

Talking about:  How did you curate a bad-ass culture of professionals who have committed fully to the organizational goals while providing top-tier service to clients...all in the Marketing business

Nobody does it alone. Don't believe your own hype. Stay humble - work harder. Hire right - hire forever, and treat your compatriots like gold (because they are). Share the vision, create a culture of excellence where people's opportunity is merit-based and unlimited. Never eat alone.

Quotable: Nobody does it alone. Don't believe your own hype. Stay humble - work harder.

Quotable: Hire right - hire forever, and treat your compatriots like gold (because they are).

Quotable: Share the vision, create a culture of excellence where people's opportunity is merit-based and unlimited.

He’s been on the right bus with the right people and translated great relationships into big bucks as Chief Operating Officer of Hawke Media. 

Tony helps answer the following questions for The Nice Guys:

What is marketing all about in 2016 and why do marketing companies have a tough rep to overcome?

Why is it that everyone that has a social media account and 1000 followers is all the sudden an expert. 

Where do you see the marketing industry going and what does the frontier look like? 

What’s dead in the marketing world?

What is old school to you that still hits a homerun?

Ep. 24 Your Social Media Campaign. 5 Essential Elements

In order to be successful, any business, no matter the size, should focus its attention on building a social media campaign with the following components in mind:

THE LIST- It’s a great idea to start here because any campaign, even an awesome one, will go absolutely nowhere if there is no one to promote a product or service to

BRAND- Would I know who you are if I saw your logo? Do you have a signature saying or slogan that’s easily recognizable?

CONTENT- What are you doing to be an expert in your industry? If you become the expert, others will point to you and they will promote your products as well.

CALL TO ACTION- When you create your message or your content, you must tell people what you want them to do.

HUMAN ELEMENT- Above all else, people like to feel as though they are connecting with other people, not machines.
