179: Clarissa Silva—Ready To Find Love In A Whole New Way?

Posted by Andrea Simon on Feb 24, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how you can really, really find your soul mate!  

This is a podcast that everyone should pay attention to. Our guest is Clarissa Silva, the founder of Your Happiness Hypothesis (H20) Method. Based on an algorithm she created, this "first-ever disruptive relationship technique" helps people find their significant other, husband, wife, partner, through a methodology that really works. After trying e-Harmony and all the other dating apps, she took the traditional psychological and behavioral science models and re-engineered them to be 10 times more effective. And guess what? She met her husband! If you're like me, you'll find our conversation fascinating, and possibly, even the gateway to love and happiness.

178: Patrik Birkhane—Helping Us Live Healthier, Happier And More Peaceful Lives

Posted by Andrea Simon on Feb 20, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn what wonderful things can come from a quiet mind

I met Patrick when we were both traveling in Sicily. As we talked about our own life journeys, I learned that he has held successful positions in advertising, marketing, content development and event planning. He was very good at them but not very happy with them, so he moved to a small island off Scandinavia and became a newscaster. He then began to wonder about life and what he was seeing all around him: the extinction of animals, the troubles in our climate, and the difficulties people are having living healthy lives. Not afraid of change, he became a mindfulness coach and now helps others find their peacefulness, their humanness, and their personal center. I have gotten so much out of my conversations with Patrik, and you will too.

Learn how to arm your employees with a sense of purpose!

Stefan and I had one of those great podcast discussions that took us into the work he is doing to get people to pay attention to our sustainability challenges. Unless we stop what we are doing to our environment, we won’t have much left of the earth to live on, he firmly believes. But what I most enjoyed about our talk was learning how Stefan is mobilizing communities to change. As culture change experts, that's what we're all about at SAMC: helping organizations and the individuals within them change. Want or need to change? Stefan teaches us how to do it, now.

Posted by Andrea Simon on Feb 3, 2020 6:14:34 PM

Learn how a nomadic mindset helps you see where you are going!

I was introduced to Anthony Willoughby by Diana Wu David after our podcast interview. She said, “You just must meet Anthony. He will take you on his adventures around the world where people learn to build their trust and their abilities to work together.” So I  did! As you will hear, Anthony grew up in Africa, wandered the world, and  much like an anthropologist, learned how to observe, listen and learn from different cultures, particularly nomadic tribe s. This led him to found the Nomadic School of Business, whose c oncept of a nomadic mindset helps leaders and their teams achieve clarity, purpose and agility.

171: Michael Wigge—Nothing Is Impossible!

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jan 27, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to overcome obstacles, tackle challenges and succeed!

You might wonder why we invited German comedian, travel writer, television producer and soft skill trainer Michael Wigge to speak to our listeners about setting a record for the longest donkey ride in music television history, dressed as Henry VIII. Or about the time he crossed Germany on a Mibo Mastr scooter, covering 2,500 kilometers (1553 miles) in 80 days. Or how he's travelled the world for free, several times, and written two books about it. This is one guy who knows how to overcome challenges, find creative solutions, and persevere. And we can learn to do it too!

170: Alicia Robb—Move Over, Men...Women Are Starting Businesses And Doing Exceptionally Well

Posted by Andrea Simon on Jan 23, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how women-owned businesses are kicking it!

Today’s podcast is all about a topic that we here at SAMC are working on ourselves: how to help women create and grow their businesses. My conversation with Alicia Robb was wonderful. Alicia spent 12 years as a senior fellow (remotely) at the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City studying entrepreneurship and women entrepreneurs. You can read some of her Google Scholars articles here. Of particular interest to me, and perhaps to you as well, is her work on minority-owned business performance and the impact of gender differences on business results. So can women start and run hugely successful businesses? You bet. Listen in, learn and pass it on.
