Soaring to New Heights: My Quest for an Education That Began at Age 56 by Trevor Hucey

Trevor shares how the decision he made to go back to school changed his life completely. “I made a deal with my wife. She asked me to take 1 class and decide afterward if I want to continue or not. I did exceptionally well in my first class because of the research that I did. I got a 4.0. I was on cloud 9. I didn’t believe it was possible and that gave me the confidence to continue. My wife saw something in me that I didn’t see that is why I dedicate this book to her.” Trevor said.

Undeniable You: 7 Steps To Soar by Myrtha Dubois

Myrtha’s talks about going through the process of recognition, discovery, and understanding while learning to embrace your path and your purpose. “The title of my book is Undeniable You: 7 Steps To Soar and the reason why it’s “undeniable” is through my journey and experiences growing spiritually, I became one with myself. I knew there was more to me than just what I see in front of the mirror and I needed to bring who the real Myrtha is to the world; a person who I know, a lot of people can relate to.“ Myrtha said.

In her book, Bitchy: The NO-BS Woman’s Guide to Claiming the Love, Peace of Mind, and Happiness She Deserves, that word stands for — a “beautiful individual that communicates honestly.” In the show, she’ll talk about what it means to be a “bitch” and how much that can make a big difference in your life.

You are beautiful. You are resilient. Your opinions have value and now is your time to learn how to be 100% you. Doing that is what living your life as a Thriving Entrepreneur really means. Join Steve Kidd in this amazing interview with Erica and Tiffany on Thriving Entrepreneur

Thriving Entrepreneur – Is Your Tribe On Your Team

What do your future clients think of you? We need to ask ourselves, “Am I seen as a contributing member of the group or, Am I an annoying outsider?” In any group, there are those that add value to the group, and then there are those who are only thinking of them self. You know the person that is always trying to sell something and never interacting. Another great question to ask ourselves is: ” Do people recognize me? Do they know my name? Do they see me as someone they want to know more? OR do they have no idea what I do?”

When we think of approaching our potential clients, often we get it wrong from the start. We need to truly be a contributing member of our “tribe.” Our tribe is the group of people just like us that could be our potential clients. However, we need to always remember that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

We all know the type of person we don’t want to be perceived as. That person who enters a room and immediately begins selling you something. The kind of person who corners you in a social situation to “pitch” you. You know you don’t want to be this person! You know you don’t want to be that person everyone avoids. LOL

So as we think about how we are in social situations, we need to also think about, “What is my approach and how am I perceived on social media? What we want is to be the person everyone seeks out. We want to be liked admired and trusted. Not avoided, disliked or maybe even feared.

How do we do that?

To start with, we need to approach our online presence with a spirit of giving. We need to be a contributing member of your tribe.

What you want is for all of the members of your tribe to be on your team. You want them to refer people to you when they have a need you can meet. How do we do that?

Social marketing and online marketing expert Don Crowther is going to share some insights with us on how to really be present and effective in your social media.

Learn how you can add benefit to your tribe and how you can create a presence that makes people want to be on your mailing list and interact with you.

Let Don and Steve show you how to make all of your tribe part of your team!

Thriving Entrepreneur – Simplifying Technology

Technology. Do you have a negative opinion about it? Do you avoid it? Does it scare or confuse you? Why is it that the technologies that are designed to improve our lives, all too often just create new challenges and struggles for us.

Every business should have an online presence whether it is as simple as listings on 3rd party websites, or things like Facebook and Twitter, or a personal website. It is impossible to be a business today and not have an online presence.

Meaning, how to remove some of the complications from the technologies we need to use for our business. Tom has generously donated his time today to help the Wounded Warrior Project.

We know you don’t need another technology to learn. You don’t want to have to become a master at something before it is effective. What you want and need is someone to show you how you can simply and effectively make use of social media, the internet and other technologies in such a way that it aids the growth of your business. You also need permission to hire a professional to come in and set up or manage some or all of your technologies, so that you can spend your time sharing your unique brilliance with the world.

Thriving Entrepreneur – Rebuilding Your Relationship with Food

Today, we are joined by Angela Johnson, and our topic is all about something that all of us love — FOOD.

In every accomplishment that we make, we must reward ourselves. We need to reward ourselves with good things that make us better and feel better. And I know all of us will agree that food is one of the things in this world that makes us feel good. But we need to remember that using food as a reward should be done in the right way, and as much as possible, we must try to break the cycle of using food as a reward.

In Angela’s book, “Diabolically Delicious” she shares her story about the toxic relationship she used to have with food. She shares her journey to realizing her vulnerability and the things she did to gain control over the one thing that she relied upon in times of strife — food. This book will encourage you to reflect, recognize, and gain control over the struggles you face and gives you enlightenment on how you can cure and rebuild your relationship with food.
