Revenue Accelerator with Jessica Creane

Season 2021, Ep. 603

A play is a fictional work that can be viewed or heard at a theater, television, or the radio. Plays are intriguing because they can be interpreted in numerous ways. Jessica Creane uses Play to investigate complicated climate change, ethics, chaos, and team dynamics. In this episode of The Revenue Accelerator Podcast, Jessica describes her tactics for executing these plays that influence everyone personally. 

All about Plays

[01:58] 

Play is sometimes ignored as an essential part of the process. Having fun, especially in business, is sometimes considered taboo or harmful. Nobody has fun doing what they like. We play games because we don't know what's ahead. It has a beautiful aspect of mystery about it. It's disconcerting when we're in that environment, which is similar to the real world. Sometimes, the stakes are slight, but the risk is high. 


Life as a simulation

[04:44]

We play various roles in our lives, and we sometimes embrace them, and sometimes we don't. However, knowing the advantage and restrictions of the parts we're playing at any particular time allows us to make more robust and intriguing decisions within those roles.

[06:36] 

Roles frequently imply permanency, as if you are this rather than trying it on. It is an experiment, you get to make choices within this framework, and you may exit at any time. There are all of these other roles you can try on, and you can merge them. Thus, there is this sensation of having to be someone or achieving a definite mark, but everything is continually altering in reality.


Variations of Games

[15:45] 

There is a common fallacy that games always have win states, which implies constantly losing states. And it doesn't have to be that way; there are plenty of games that don't function that way. There are games that we play for the sake of playing. We play to keep playing, to find a new way to be playful to engage, learn, and change. Games give us a transformative space. Be comfortable enough with the unknown of what comes next, be excited about it, and trust ourselves and the people we're with to find our way.

[19:33] 

It's always beneficial to be open and honest, to have another set of eyes. Ask yourself, "What are the guidelines you're now following?" Do you agree with them? Do you want to follow this set of rules? There will always be integration and bridging space in that area. There's an issue of how to open the door for those kinds of dialogues, work culture, what a product will be, and how that product will communicate with others. It's advantageous when you're developing or changing the rules by which a group operates.

[21:08] 

If you nerd out on analytics, there are sophisticated and basic solutions that are incredibly fascinating for many people. The most straightforward approach is to start a single experiment.  Choose one character that you play in life and build a list of gaming roles for yourself.

Revenue Accelerator with Diana Needham

Season 2021, Ep. 916
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, our guest will be Diana Needham, the CEO, and founder of Business Book Partners in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Diana has been making magic happen since 2008 for big business book partners, entrepreneurs, speakers, and business leaders. She has created over 90+ bestselling authors in a row using her proven system. Today, Diana tells us how she approaches her clients and how this system works.Diana’s Work Background[01:20]Project management is in my blood. So, one of the side things that makes me different, I think, from a lot of people that work with authors is that there is a proven process.[2:35]I had no time to work with my people. That's what I loved the most about my role: mentoring and working with people.Marketing Books[05:14]You need to be clear about some key questions at the very beginning. And the first one is about why am I writing this? What's the big heart story? I have to dig a lot of times to get the heart story behind the book. Why is this so important? Because you don't want to be writing the wrong book. And you don't want to be writing something you don't have passion for.[7:47]When I work with people from the beginning, they've got some idea, even if it's vague, which we refine, and we figure out those answers to those key questions. We know who it is, what the problem is that we're solving, what we want to be known for, what's the result that we want from this book.Knowing your end goal[14:19]It goes back to that foundation, those seven questions. And knowing your end goal, that's another thing that people miss is like, okay, at the end of the day, imagine you have this book in your hand. What do you want to have to happen? And they never thought about it. They want to get it out there but haven't thought about what they want.How changes are made[23:36]if you somehow got to the finish line with a book, and you're looking at it now through the lens of how can I use this as a business asset, there are probably some key things we could look at, tweak, rearrange and make it work.Starting conversations with partners[28:19]How do you start the conversation? Just turn the conversation from discussing the weather to whether we should work together. Does the conversation start with what you are reaching out to?Conclusion[30:44]It takes us a while to realize that what makes us different from everybody else who does what we do is our experience and story.Learn more about Diana Needham by visiting: www.dianamneedham.com

Revenue Accelerator with Kachina Gosselin

Season 2021, Ep. 1108
In this episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast, we have invited Kachina Gosselin, an MIT graduate with a degree in aerospace. She is now coaching entrepreneurs, authors, and speakers to become elevated experts. Today, Kachina shares her thoughts about experts, what people should do to become one, and how to handle being one.Forgetting[01:28]The people we attract are good at what they do. And if you happen to be good at what you do, you forget what it's like to be a beginner.Knowing what to say and when[2:53]You don't have to have a Ph.D.; you don't have to have a book. You need to be a step ahead of your audience. They can be relatable and teach them what they need to know at the time.Authority[4:04]One of the things I like to talk about as an expert does have to have authority and authority isn't claimed. It's given, which means you can claim the expert title, but then people have to give you authority and say, I invite you to write that book or to be on that podcast that you can kind of put some weight behind that claim.Showing Vulnerability[12:14]I think there's something bonding with seeing somebody show humility and vulnerability, which makes it a little less intimidating for other people to do the same.External Perspective[14:36]I think that's where it helps to be in the community. And that's what mentorship is all about. Because of the courses we see, the easier it is to look at you from an external perspective and help you shine, and it's very hard to do that work yourself.Experts and Brilliant People[18:09]Right now, we are focusing a lot on our partnerships because we found that experts and brilliant people lift the people around them and have a constant stream of new introductions.Conclusion[19:48]The truth is if you can envision a future where your business works for you, you will get there. So, I want you to give yourself permission you can do less and earn more.Learn more about Kachina’s mentorship by visiting: www.elevatedexpertmentorship.com

Revenue Accelerator with Rocky Buckley

Season 2021, Ep. 513
Welcome to another episode of the Revenue Accelerator Podcast. Today we have Rocky Buckley, creator of Platinum Path and The Power Persona Project. Rocky assists influencers and experts in reinventing their brands and helping them with strategies to improve their business.Discovering you[04:05]It is critical to discover and understand oneself. It is working with your foundation to become the person you want to be. After completing those tasks, it's time to consider how unique you may be.Taking a step back[07:02]Know which parts of yourself you want to leave behind, your assets, and the resources that you have—Taking a step back is critical to get some perspective.[09:38]Be conscious of your identity, your strengths and resources that you can use on personal branding, and elements in your past that can help you resonate with people.Brandable character[15:48]Developing systems and procedures that people will use, including instructional design ideas, in your work is highly crucial.Importance of design in a system[21:43]Design can help you to market what you are selling. People find it highly appealing when you have this three-part system with all of these features and functions, and it even sounds more digestible from a marketing perspective.It's all about speed[24:01]it's about speed and ease and clarity. You can market rate by telling your clients that you can achieve something faster than it usually takes.Components in building an audience[25:42]You need to decide if you want to be a public figure. It would help if you do not only decide who you want to be but also examine your market to determine its demographics. People won't be drawn to you if you aren't enthusiastic about what you do and have a clear sense of purpose that motivates you daily.Attracting audience[30:25]It would be best if you were engaged, and you can't expect others to be interested if you only try to post every so often. Engaging with people in the comments and having enough grasp of human nature is the way to know what would pique someone's interest.Entrepreneurs’ perspective[34:40]Always begin with a perspective of an entrepreneur. What do you envision for your life? The decisions you make in business are contingent on how you expect your life.Foundation for everything else[39:21]What am I doing here? Why do I exist? What is my purpose, and where am I headed? Objectively experiencing life is the basis for everything else. Take the time to stand back and get perspective if you're not already doing so. You will begin to observe shocking alterations in the aftermath if you get conscious of your life.Join Rocky's Facebook group to learn more: https://www.facebook.com/groups/powerpersonaListen to Revenue Accelerator Podcast on:Apple | Acast
