So What?

Where Dreams Come True

If you’ve never owned the road, just you, you’ve never known a surreal feeling of the explorer. Seeing something few, if any, have ever seen.

Upcoming student presentation next month. Copy and paste below from the Google form i was requested to complete:

Do you have balance in your life? You are in charge of everything in your life as CEO of You, Inc. If Disney ran your life you would have to think differently about everything. What would happen if you applied time tested, world-class Disney business wisdom to your life to create personal vibrancy?

30-year Disney veteran, dad to 19-year old college freshman son, married 37 years, unofficial world-record holder, senior Olympian, lives less than one mile from Walt Disney World, lifetime Disney Parks pass, insatiable desire to learn and teach, TED Talk (Kuwait), two-time Walt Disney Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, spoken to over one-million people, super power is helping others .think .differently

Secret hack to improve your work

Screen capture from a participants (at this conference) social media feed.

The secret hack to improving your work?

The way to get better is to get better at getting better.

Never considered myself a storyteller. In fact i considered myself the opposite, a poor storyteller. Poor storytellers are best when they are silent.

One day, with Leslie Bays-Baker in a private, nine-executive multi-day engagement, i told the closing story and tied the story’s point to the thesis statement for the class’s entire four days.

After the group graduated and left the classroom on day four, Leslie shared, “I loved your personal story and how you connected it back to the content and the audience.”

Leslie’s feedback changed the course of my speaking career because for the first time, it felt as if i was a purposeful storyteller.

Have never looked backed from that defining moment.

Blogging every morning for 11 years was birthed out of the desire to become a better storyteller, and perhaps some day to become a master storyteller.

Why?

To dream, create, and inspire.

Solving for 4 key issues

Three-city trip coming soon. March 20 actually changes to March 19.

Solving for 4 key speaking issues:

  1. What subject is he famous for?
  2. What does he look like on stage?
  3. Isn’t he too expensive?
  4. Where is his book?

Here’s how:

  1. Customer Service (build off of TED Talk)
  2. TED is too long, insert 30-second sizzles
  3. 2020 is the year of exposure vs revenue
  4. Go the Extra Inch is first Disney business book to release

What Are You Waiting For?

Exposure trumps revenue in 2020

Dream. Create. Inspire. i am in charge of this at my company as the only full-time employee.

Exposure trumps revenue in 2020.

This revelation just appeared minutes ago while replying to an early business-day-client email.

This year is about marketing and getting the word out.

Why?

The theories about many business strategies and tactics are simply that, theories.

If you have owned your business for at least 11 years, you absolutely understand. If you are in the first year to five years, you haven’t yet discovered the reality of longer-term growth and reputation marketing.

Burn the ships.

.think .differently

Over-focus.

Super excited.

Day one.

It was amazing

Magic happens when you live admirably. Just yesterday we (Disney) repeated as the 4th most admired company in the world according to Fortune.

It was amazing.

At least three times my client said that.

In roughly five minutes between other people coming in and out of the conversation as the session concluded.

Later a text:

The team keeps talking about the presentation and YOU!!

To which i text back:

Wait, what? i’m just a messenger. Walt’s genius deserves the credit for the architecture. PS. Thank you.
