Mom Makers - Mothers of Invention, With Lori Turk and Christine Kizik (replay)

July 18, 2022

Inventors Lori (founder of Safe Grate) and Christine (founder of Sola Skin Care), both went a very smart route when creating their products. They discovered a need in their life, did the research, and fulfilled the need themselves!

Listen in as these ladies have a candid conversation about:

  • Patents - Yay? Nay? What type?
  • What type of research to do - and when to stop researching and get moving
  • Using your own needs as impetus to create products others like you will want
  • Their own founder stories
  • Going for it, making mistakes, making changes, and setting boundaries
  • What you start with is not what you end with
  • And much more!

Mom Makers - Making a Brick and Mortar Location Work, with Jacqueline De’Ath and Dana Shortt (replay)

Mom Makers - Making a Brick and Mortar Location Work, with Jacqueline De’Ath and Dana Shortt (replay)

June 30, 2022

I know what you are thinking, Amazon is taking over the world and retail stores are dying by the day. Who would want to start or run a "brick and mortar" location now?

Well, my 2 guests have been doing so successfully for over a decade (almost 30 years between them), so let's listen to them!

Jacqueline De'Ath is the founder of Homeworks Etc. DIY, and she helps people create their own home decor through popular workshops, as well as retailing it in her workshop/store. She has been in business since 2007.

Dana Shortt founded Dana Shortt Gourmet in 2004. She moved from catering into a retail location that provides delicious foods for entertaining, and prepared meals.

I have samples both their wares and I can say they really know what they are doing!

So sit back and take some notes as we explore what it means to succeed in the challenging world of brick and mortar retail.

How (and how not) To Become an Influential Person with Teresa de Grosbois (Replay)

June 3, 2022

Influential people (or "influencers") play by a different set of rules. Teresa de Grosbois is an international speaker and bestselling author on the topic of influence. In today's interview, we learn:

• How the most influential people share their influence, and how to approach them
• The "Premature Ask", or how NOT to approach people of influence (with hilarious examples)
• How crying on the bathroom floor at her lowest point ignited Teresa's journey to where she is today

As an example of how influential Teresa has become, several of my podcast interviews have been with people to whom I was connected by Teresa!

You can get her newest book, "Mass Influence - The Habits of the Highly Influential" at

Brian Dixon will look you in the eye with a big smile, and tell you what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.

  • The HALT system of self regulation
  • How to "number your days" for maximum impact
  • The concept that "when people pay, they pay attention"
  • "What is easy to you, is magic to someone else" - love this idea for valuing your knowledge and expertise!
  • and much more!
