“Awaken Your Superpower” with Alex Charfen

Most people live their entire lives in the herd, following trends and driving toward expectations that others hold over them. It’s understandable: challenging the status quo is difficult and scary. But this fear results in a lack of perspective. It forces people to live their lives without.

While many books, seminars, and presentations have been developed around the power of intention, few understand the real tactics of intention. But there are tactics, steps we can all take to live with intention and achieve our greatest outcomes. By understanding how to lower pressure and noise in our lives, and create the systems and frameworks for protection and support, anyone can allow their unique strengths and abilities – their superpowers – to show up in incredible ways.

On today’s show, Dave recaps episodes 536-539 where Alex Charfen shares how to Awaken Your Superpower.

“Two Keys for Success in the New Economy” with Angus Nelson

Angus Nelson talks about Two Keys for Success in the new free-agent economy: Being a self-learner and becoming an expert networker.

Becoming the best at what you do is going to separate you from other free-agents out there competing with you. That means you have to put the time in to become a master of your craft. And with the resources available these days, there is plenty of training and help to get you there.

The second key is expanding your network of relationships. Not just shaking hands and passing out business cards, but quality and valuable relationships. In the past, you could bury your head, do your job and let your boss take care of the rest. But in the free agent economy, you become responsible for developing the relationships that will help you expand your reach and build your business.

“Adopting the New Free Agent Mindset” with Angus Nelson

Angus Nelson talks about the critical nature of self-awareness and coaching for free agent workers. The scope of self-awareness is going a key component, particularly in the transaction of contracts. Big brands can no longer make unreasonable demands on you. Company leadership will have to take on a different approach in how they treat their contract labor force with empathy, compassion, and understanding.

On the other side of the equation, as a contractor, it’s critical to develop the soft skills of negotiating and networking, making them as important as your hard skills. You are now developing rapport and relationships in developing your network and connections, so you have to learn the savvy of interaction.

“Keys to Being a Successful Free Agent” with Angus Nelson

Angus Nelson talks about the keys to being a successful free agent. He says the three most important strategies are managing your brand, network, and reputation. A free agent has the liberty to work as much or a little as they want, anywhere they want. Also, the hourly fees tend to be higher, but with the advantages, there will be a demand for excellence and the responsibility will be on you to deliver.

You are your own brand and company as a free agent, and that means you have to manage your brand and reputation. And as you become the best known and respected provider in your field, people will pay top dollar for someone they know, like, and trust.
