How many of you are questioning if it is a good idea to keep putting tremendous effort into your business?   Are you just plain tired

In my interview with author Kim Loh, we speak about her new co-authored book entitled ” Compassionate Conversations-How to Speak and Listen from the Heart” 

Most entrepreneurs start a business because they think they can solve a problem with the product or service while making profits providing the product or

I’ll bet that many of you reading this blog entry are not aware of the Gen Z generation.   So, let’s put this in some context–Gen Z’ers are the generation born between 1995 and 2012.  There are over 72.8 million of them in the US, and they are characterized as a generation that has only known smartphones and are true digital natives, and they have access to information 24/7.   I recently got to interview both David and Jonah Stillman about their new book entitled ” Gen Z @ Work“.

While always being plugged in they are also suffering from what is referred to at FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) because they are so plugged into information 24/7.

In this dynamic interview with a father-son team, they inform us of what is recommended to work effectively with the Generation Z .  Jonah who is a senior in high school states that this generation will bring important entrepreneurial spirit to work.  They are consistently looking to streamline processes and procedures, and are more independent that the Millennials.   David, Jonah’s father states that the Gen Z group responded to their survey stating that they prefer face to face communications versus that of texting or social media platforms—quite interesting considering they are considered digital natives and love technology.

If you want to learn more about the preferences of this generation in the workplace, then I highly recommend that you listen to this podcast with David and Jonah Stillman.  I also suggest that you check out their book website by clicking here.  You can reach them on Facebook by clicking here.

 

It is seldom that I come across a book that is packed full of insight, wisdom and real world applications.  I had the honor of conducting an interview with Rebecca Costa the author of ” The Watchman’s Rattle-Thinking Our Way Out of Extinction“, about her new groundbreaking book.

Rebecca states that many of our current world problems are due to the accelerating complexity which outpaces the rate at which the human brain can function and develop new capabilities.  If you feel that our world is moving at breakneck speed and you are not able to keep up with the pace, you are not alone.  In the “Watchman’s Rattle” Rebecca cites civilizations such as and Mayan, Khmer and Roman empires which fell and became extinct due to trying to find quick fixes to their problems.  Drought, food shortages, war, population growth as all factors that we face today, and will require that we think our way out of extinction.  Biological capabilities–the genetic features of each human organism–represent the only common denominator in every civilization and therefore, must necessarily play a role in every civilization’s outcome.  Evolution can not be left out of the conversation, ” The Watchman’s Rattle” the the book that allows for us to have this dialogue and understand our challenges, and hopefully come to a way out of extinction.

Rebecca cites what she refers to as supermemes which are beliefs that have transferred from generation to generation and are at the foundation of the challenges we are facing as a civilization today.  Everything from irrational opposition to extreme economics, Rebecca and I discuss these supermemes in our interview together.

I have come full circle with author Glenn Aparicio Parry.  Recently his publicists reached out to me about doing an interview with Glenn, what she did not know is that Glenn and I had previously been affiliated when Glenn was involved in as the director of the SEED Gratitude Institute in Albuquerque, NM.  I just love how the Universe works in bringing people back into your life, just at the right time.

Glenn has written a new book entitled “Original Thinking-A Radical ReVisioning of Time, Humanity and Nature“.  In my interview with Glenn we explore the deep inner realms of our thinking.  How can we reconnect with all the natural ecological and spiritual ways to help restore our world to wholeness?   In other words is our linear and rational thinking at the root cause of our current degradation of our society?   If so how as a species can we reconnect with our “nature”.

As Glenn states “The origin of thinking is thanking. Original thinking is thinking that begins in wholeness, in gratitude for all there is. Thinking that begins in wholeness remains in wholeness, even if ti employs abstract thought for limited purposes. We are always in relationship with the whole.”  If you want to further explore how our thinking is at the center of so much of the dilemma we face as a society, then you won’t want to miss a minute of my interview with Glenn Aparicio Parry the author of “Original Thinking
