“The Problem With Clutter” with Alison Kero

Professional organizer Alison Kero talks about how and why are we accumulating so much clutter, and how it’s affecting our health, energy and productivity levels. Not only is it filling up our space in our homes, offices, and cars, but it’s starting to fill up our mental space as well. It’s also beginning to take a giant toll on our health (both mental, physical and spiritual), productivity and energy levels as well.

“BEST OF Clay Clark”

Clay Clark says you need to have more rocks in your schedule (you’ll understand what a “rock” is as you listen to the show.) His point is to fill up our schedule with the things that mean the most, rather than to allow our time to be filled with small distractions that keep us from accomplishing our big goals.

“Becoming A Person of Influence: Listening” with Tarun Stevenson

Tarun Stevenson says we should start being mindful and aware when we are in a conversation with others. Ask yourself, “Who’s voice do I hear most often?” Are you thinking about your next reply, or are you engaging with what the other person is saying? Most people’s words don’t reflect what’s on the inside or what they are experiencing emotionally. When we listen, we see past their words and get to the real person.

“Becoming a Person of Influence: Faith in Others” with Tarun Stevenson

Tarun Stevenson says having faith in people goes beyond just speaking words of encouragement, or just thinking well of someone. It’s about putting into action those beliefs. Your actions follow your beliefs about who that person can be. You have to follow through and treat people the way you say and the way you believe they can be. Most people will respond to the level of expectation you put in front of them.

“Becoming a Person of Influence: Nurturing” with Tarun Stevenson

Tarun Stevenson says nurturing is taking the time to be able to see somebody as they could be, and not as they are, then working to help them become that person. It can be a sizable investment of time, but it’s about the long-term goal. Do you want these people in your life for a long time? Then you need to take the time and invest in them. It’s about being able to look into the future and say, “This person could be better than they are now, and I can be the person that helps them get there.”

“Becoming a Person of Influence: Integrity” with Tarun Stevenson

Tarun Stevenson says integrity is what you do when no one is looking. It’s being able to do the right thing and developing the habit of being honest in your conduct, speech, and attitudes even when you are not being held accountable. We all have areas in our life where we could do better concerning our integrity. We practice the small acts of integrity when no one is looking, then when we’re called on for the big acts of integrity; we’ve already made it a habit in our lives.

“Enemy Number One of Your Retirement” with Chris Hogan

Chris Hogan says, when you start to realize the importance of your financial future, you begin to understand who’s an ally and what’s an enemy. Debt is not an ally. Debt takes away from your income. It demands a payment each and every month. Chris wants us to see debt for what it is, and be smart by intentionally getting rid of debt and keeping it out of your life.

“Retirement isn't an age, it's a number” with Chris Hogan

Chris Hogan wants us to understand one key fact: retirement has nothing to do with your age, it has everything to do with a financial number. So it’s not about 65, 62, 70, it’s more about how much money we’re going to need to be able to live the lifestyle we want to live in the future.
