Live Brave Podcast Ep 8: Labels

Episode 8 of the Live Brave Podcast is about labels. Why we place labels on people, how to avoid mislabeling ourselves and others, and the only label you should give yourself. 

What is the label you live by? Yes, we all have one, two, or more. I am shy, or not good at math, or I don't know how to talk to people. These are just a few labels. So, what are your labels and why have you decided to brand yourself?  . 

In this episode I will discuss:
•    What I learned from my own "I'm not good at math" label.
• How the news distributes labels.      
• Your one true label.

Live Brave Podcast Ep 7: How Not to Become Your Worst Nightmare: A Critic

Episode 7 of the Live Brave Podcast is about your critics, why they exist, what they want and how not to become one. 

Today, we see critics everywhere. Criticism has become a favorite sport on all social media platforms and has hundreds of Youtube channels dedicated to pushing out the content. But with all the critics what is to be said about those brave enough to create? Individuals courageous enough to silence the noise of the world and lead with their passions to create change. I believe it is the creators who have and will continue to mold the world.

Take a listen and decide for yourself. 

In this episode I will discuss:
•    What I learned from reading the comments section of podcasters I love
•    Why critics, criticize   
•    4 steps on how to rethink criticism

Live Brave Podcast Ep. 6: You Were Born To Lead on Social Media

When you tell a man he is brave you help him to become so.” – Thomas Carlyle

Episode 6 of the Live Brave Podcast is all about leading on social media and how to build your platform in the process. If you are on social media there usually is listed somewhere on the platforms home screen the label “followers.” Whether you have 5 or 500,000 followers you are responsible for leading your “followers” – but to where? How do you keep them in mind while building your brand?

 

In this episode I will discuss:

•    What I learned in the face of rejection about platform and branding.

•    Social media is bigger than one person. What are you saying to the world?

•    3 steps to leading well on social media: message, your why, and your plan.

#LiveBravePodcast Ep.5: Permission Seeking

“When you tell a man he is brave you help him to become so.” – Thomas Carlyle

Episode 5 of the Live Brave Podcast is a quick burst of motivation on the topic of permission seeking. When I left the sports industry in 2014, leaving behind years of work, contacts, and some amazing memories (NBA Championship game - Mavs win) I knew I wanted to explore writing and entrepreunrship but did not know where to start. This led me to look to others for permission and courage to just jump in.

Can you relate?  

In this episode I will discuss:

•    Where permission seeking comes from.

•    The permission seekers lie - I don't care about what people think. 

•    Give absolute permission to who? Listen Now.

#LiveBrave Podcast Ep.4: Brave Action

“When you tell a man he is brave you help him to become so.” – Thomas Carlyle

Episode 4 of the Live Brave Podcast is all about taking bold action daily. Brave action looks different to everyone and can be something as little as flossing every night to launching a podcast about bravery. Either way, whatever it is you want to put out, be seen, or heard, make this year the year to fully and completely execute. You will notice that once you get started, each day is about choosing to show up again and again.

In this episode I will discuss:

•    Emotions about the upcoming Presidential Inauguration. Whether you are pro-Trump or pro-Hillary, this is for you.

•    “Hustle” by Neil Patel, Patrick Vlaskovits, and Jonas Koffler. I found that building routines into my day keeps me for my defaulting to procrastination or laying around waiting for inspiration. These guys have a great daily practice that could help you jump-start your plan for today, this week, this month and this year.

•    My fears – am I brave enough? Do I have what it takes to go after my dreams? Am I waiting on permission (spoiler alert – heck NO!)? I share with you, my way of dealing with this annoying voice.
