Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • Patreon, for a lack of a better word, is good!

 

Comfort Zone, Shmomfort Zone

  • Regeneration of talent means learning something new
  • A Superboss is someone that helps others get better while also making a ton of money
  • The better people around you, the more successful you’re gonna be
  • If you’re retaining talent, you’re not gonna win at that game
  • You need to be self-confident but not afraid to be humble
  • You’ve gotta earn it!

 

Closing Lines

  • Building and growing isn’t a one man job
  • Honoring a sense of internal balance is worth the time

Show Notes by Production Assistant - Anna Nygren

 

Intro

  • There’s nothing wrong with leading a company culture that is a required taste
  • Yes, there is such a thing as a brand dominatrix

 

Call Bullshit

  • The best brands in the world are the ones that say something unique about their users
  • The essence of branding is the following:
    • What does it say about a person when they use or patronize this brand?
    • How does this brand make itself indispensable?
    • What is the specific role that this brand plays in their life?
  • You are the hero in your own story!
  • People need to feel something emotionally before making a decision
  • You’ve got a brand whether you like it or not
    • Make your North Star your ideal customer

 

Closing Lines

  • Your brand has to be different in a way that makes a difference in a person’s life
  • There’s no PhD required to build a brand with great essence

Ethan and Steve are here to fix your E-Mail issues. Hear how on The Nice Guys today.

 

- You have a fan in Sunny Lake on our Nice Guys team she pushed hard to have you guys on the show...which one of you knows Sunny?

- What’s BombBomb all about?

- I love on your website you have a bunch of stats including number of countries you are providing your services, number of foosball games going on in any given day and number of craft beers you have on tap at the office. You seem to have gotten at least on the surface the culture thing down. Is the secret just keep your people drunk?

- Now you guys play a pretty active day to day role in the office. Steve, you are the Chief Marketing Officer and Ethan you are VP of Content and Communication. But how in touch with you are with front line, those seem like pretty cushy positions in a company of about 50 employees.

- As entrepreneurs yourself you guys understand the importance of making customers happy. Give or take a percentage point your customers are saying they love you 99% of the time..almost as effective as hand sanitizers, I’m going to ask this but don’t give me a fluff answer, dig deep, what is the secret to keeping customers happy?

- Where do you feel like many companies falter? Not enough training, not enough decision making on the front line? Too many employees from K-Mart in the line up?

- You have a company that is used to doing things in a traditional way...emails back and forth. How do you “sell them” on the idea of video as a replacement?

 

- They seem like they would be great for marketing, but how about normal everyday message response?

Intro

Daredevils and Product Chit-Chat

  • The strategy of having a great idea, then creating a product, finding a specific market and then trying to sell it, does not work.
    • Whatever market you are aiming for has become saturated because of the internet
  • The active listeners should totally be on the show! Right?
  • Doug and Strick reminisce over their childhood hero Evel Knievel. Daredevil of the 70’s.
  • If we do not progress, we die. Brutal but true.
  • Everyone hated the “new” Coca-Cola recipes in the 80’s. Flop.
    • So they changed their marketing. Brilliant.
  • Pokemon Go has totally revamped the playing field. What will they think of next?

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

    • Strick’s bedtime prep is to do calm yoga stretches

Ep. 204: Long Distance Podcast - Steamy Office Relationships

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Intro

  • Strick is getting zero sleep in Vegas… hmmm
    • He is sober
  • Dr. Karin’s is now the tenth most downloaded Nice Guy’s Podcast!
    • She will break down how to tame the steam appropriately in the office
  • Mantra Munchies! A regular sponsor and always delicious
    • Pack with true food prebiotics and probiotics

Addressing the Relationship Elephant in the Room

  • How do you know when the grey line has been crossed?
    • You just have to keep your professionalism in place
    • 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
  • Research shows that men who have females friendships are better partners to their significant others

No time to get to this, but you can read the blog here: 12 worries that every entrepreneur has

Ep. 198 The Nice Guy Angels Pay Us A Visit

Laura, Sunny and Stacey are The Nice Guy Angels

Laura, Sunny and Stacey are The Nice Guy Angels

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

- Do you put on 'Off'? Or 'Off' on?

- Is advertising an evil thing?

- Stacey Sherman is a correspondent for the Nice Guy's on Biz

- Stacey was on Ep. 58 and was the first was to say "fuck" on the show. (Way to go Staceyyyyyy)

- Strick is the Chief Fucker of Rock 'n Roll.

- Stacey's #1 Best Concert of 2016 would be Keith Urban.

- Nicole Kidman is a little pasty for Doug.

- Stacey would be afraid to approach Paul McCartney.

- Strick did yoga with Laura! And wants to do them on the reg.

- Laura has a very strict rule, "she onlys does what she loves."

- Kristy Heart is a dominatrix life coach... say what?

- Sunny does have monkey long arms, so she is handy.

- Doug's favorite meme was Sunny's: "I've bought this guitar and it has gotten me laid 'this' many times."

- The National Park System is a winner! Happy 100th Birthday, National Parks!

- Trip to Seattle? Done and done.

- The bottom line is - that you need to be a part of YOUR plans, not someone else's.

Ep. 191: Get ahead by being lazy with Laurence Shorter

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Laurence @TheLazyGuru

The Lazy Guru: A Half-American Scot Who Lives in England

  • Stress can be created in any moment
  • The moment where all stress dissipates, where there are no problems/pressures…. never ever arrives
  • Life is going to continue to be complex, difficult and unpredictable so you might as well just relax right now
  • As some point, the ‘balance’ achieved during meditation has to become a continuous state
  • This is as much about enjoyment of stress as it is avoiding stress
    • Stress does not ever go away, you just have to learn to manage it
  • Everyone has a Survival mechanism that has 2 states:
    • A hyper-engaged state/hyper alpha state of fighting stress
    • An “in-denial” state

Action Steps

  • Often when we are selling something, we feel that we have to ‘push’ something
  • ‘Push’ ourselves
  • “Push’ our product
  • BUT THAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF AN Effective SALES TECHNIQUE
  • We often do things that we think we need to do because we have been told that that is a good thing to do
  • When you are really into something and can add value you to it, the money will follow
  • Do not focus on your agenda in a conversation, just let the conversation go where it is going to go.
    • Let go of your expectations in a conversation

The Heart of the Lazy Guru - Making Space

  • People who are genuinely creative have a whole bunch of practices that people who uncreative people can benefit from massively
  • Creating space for something magical to happen is something that we all need to do
    • Creativity and spirit is essential for an entrepreneur
  • Making space is the discipline of carving out little spaces of time, daily, to do nothing
    • Most of us have a bunch of mind talk that gets in the way - it is chock full of concern and anxieties
    • Try to listen to them, not talk to them
  • Things will happen to you naturally in a way that will surprise you

Ep. 189: Matt White and the Funnel of Customer Awesomeness!

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Matt- @matthew_j_white

 

You could have 100,000 listeners for a show, have great content but if you don't optimize your info, no one is going to fucking find it let alone read it.

  • Whenever you create good content, people are going to want more
    • Get to a point where you help someone so much that they have to come to you to buy your services
  • You want to become a trustworthy source of knowledge in your community
  • Give the customer a taste of what you have to offer in several different presentations (blogs, articles, free eBook)
    • Then you give the customer the option to buy your services
  • If you are going to write a book, the best way to sell your book is to go out and talk about it!
    • The value of having written a book is increased credibility

Action Steps:

  • Answers peoples' questions
  • On your website, instead of trying to sell your products or info about you, why notdesign or advertise something to directly help the customer
    • For example, have your banner say, "How can we help you?" instead of "Buy x, y, and z!"

Ep. 182: Meditation is not just for Buddhists and hippies, and it can help you too

Doug- @DJDoug

Strickland- @NiceGuyonBiz

Sharon- @SharonSalzberg

Recently, more business executives have begun to utilize meditation and mindfulness within the workplace. Some larger companies and corporations have even brought employees on retreats, paid instructors to come in and teach the basics, and set aside time in the weekly work schedule for folks to meditate. Sharon Salzberg knows all about this, hear more on The Nice Guys today.

Here are some of the questions we answer on the show today:

Does meditation work for everyone?

The term meditation used to be synonymous with Buddhism and religion in my mind, has that changed or is it just the perception has changed?

There are all kinds of meditation, mindfulness, lovingkindness, body scan, mantra, so many. As a newbie, how should we choose which is right for us?

Can 10 minutes of meditation a day really change your life?

Corporate america is really catching on, can you give a couple examples of what companies are doing to and why do they see the benefit to meditation in the workplace?

How can meditation help with your daily routine...things like focus and discipline?
