The Secret of Not Being a Bore


Here are 5 things I thought were worth sharing this month: Project Drawdown, the hottest course ever, a storm of podcasts, 5 rules for practical inspiration, and the secret of not being a bore.

1 - Moving to Mars? Skip this

Everybody else, check out Project Drawdown. List member Danny Ruspandini shared this climate action resource on his excellent email list. “Drawdown” is the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to decline steadily. How do we achieve it? If we build a new narrative about ready-to-scale and profitable climate solutions. That’s what the Project Drawdown people are doing.

2 - The weather is hot, but this course is hotter

This isn’t your typical cold and “salesy” kind of webinar. I hate these. No, this is a genuine chance to learn for cheap (free) with a small group of like-minded entrepreneurs. Strategic Narrative Essentials For Entrepreneurs: mobilize the right talent, customers, and investors with your leadership. Thursday, October 13th, at 9:00 Pacific Time. Register here. Can’t make it? The video recordings and the material will be available after the session for USD 100. Check out the details.

3 - Meanwhile, on planet Podcast

Hurricane season is in full swing, stronger than ever. A storm of episodes in which incredible hosts interview me as a guest about my book went live in September:

You can also watch them on my Youtube Channel.

4 - Breathe in, breathe out

People following me on LinkedIn seemed to have enjoyed 5 Rules for Practical Inspiration, one of my latest articles.

5 - The secret of not being a bore

Don’t tell everything.

Watch how Dr. Robb Akridge, co-creator of Clarisonic, early pioneer at Sonicare, and one of my legacy clients does it in his latest product demo. It rocks. Another popular article I published in September on my website: Why Dr. Robb’s Product Demo Rocks.
