Innovative Business Pioneers Share Their Stories on POL Radio

Jan 27 2009

Ever wonder if your idea could really take off and be the 'next big thing?' Great ideas often start with the quickest thought. Once you recognize that thought as an opportunity, then find a way to create a solid system (or plan) to make it happen- you can become an innovative business pioneer too!

This weeks Power of Leadership Radio guests were two innovative business pioneers. I interviewed Bonnie Ross-Parker (The Joy of Connecting®) & Rick Itzkowich (Productive Learning & Leisure).

Bonnie has a unique perspective on networking- she's founded a female focused networking organization that is rapidly growing. Drawing from her working experience in a male dominated corporate arena, Bonnie gave experiential knowledge as to why that time was of value- and how she's using that to further help female business owners today!

I've known Rick for years - and he is one of my favorite people to introduce others to! You know that saying 'if you keep on doing the same thing expecting different results'... you are fulfilling the definition of insanity (ok-that's my own special twist on the definition)... well, if you ARE stuck in a thinking rutt- then Rick is a person for you to know.

Rick shared with our listeners his unique brand of thinking and results producing way of branding and staying top of mind in those around you. If you missed this show- and are looking for a GREAT way to keep your name, your business and your brand in front of those you need to be in front of- be sure to listen into the archive of this show! Rick has a very cool offer just for you. (I've been using this for quite some time now and am very glad to pass it on!)

Enjoy and keep on growing as the awesome leader you are!

The Privilege to hear Success Insights from Dynamic Thought Leaders

Jan 23 2009

Dr. Ivan Misner (BNI), Ed Mercer & Dr. Richard Kaye (CEO Space) joined me this week for another wisdom filled show on leadership.

Dr. Misner is known to most as the founder of the worlds largest professional networking organization, BNI, he is a true leader to listen to! His insights on networking are as applicable today in every element of networking- as they were 25 years ago when he first launched this organization. My favorite part of the interview with him was when he clearly defined why leaders need to understand that networking to grow your business is easy- but it's not simple! It takes time to learn HOW to network effectively to get the results you want!

Ed Mercer is always full of poise and a genuine heart to teach and lead others. His story is from the heart and will bring you back into perspective in your life to remember that anything IS possible! Be sure to come back to this show again and again and grasp onto the depth of Ed's wisdom. It will help you become a better leader!

Dr. Richard Kaye is a dynamic person to speak with and his contribution to this weeks show was glowing. As leaders, it's easy to get caught up in all the hoopla about what your 'follower's (friends, fans and media too) say about you. Richard's experience as a leader led him to understand the importance of letting EGO GO! I've spoken to Richard often about this element and I truly believe that this one factor in people's thinking and actions is a huge component of what unneccessarily holds them back!

Be sure to pass this show on to your colleagues, friends and family - those who aspire to be a better leader. They will thank you for sharing this show with them.

Looking forward to sharing next weeks guests with you!
