3 Podcasts About “Giving First”

podcast about giving first

With the launch of my new book “The Give First Economy,” I reached out to several of my friends and peers that do podcasting and content to see if they could help me out.  It’s always a vulnerable email to send out that says “please help me.”  So I was humbled and honored that several people were kind enough to take me up on the offer.  What was really cool was that each of these conversations, while they covered similar topics, were very different in tone and content.

That’s what happens when you are interviewed by professionals.  They all have their own view, tone and vision for interviewing.  Here are a few podcasts that were kind enough to have me.

Skucast with Bobby Lehew

Bobby Lehew is one of the most cerebral people in the Promotional Industry.  He is an extremely well-read and thoughtful interviewer.  Bobby wanted to dig into part 2 of the book first, and then chat about “giving first.”  He even shared his own experience with getting too caught up in the chaos and the need to incorporate some meditation as a practice in your life.  Listen to that conversation here.

So You’re In Sales with Roger Burnett

Roger is a believer in the “give first” philosophy and has created a business model around it.  Roger dug right in on the concept of the book and wanted to unpack the idea that we have an “Appreciation Gap” in most organizations.  Listen in to Roger and I here.

Clone Yourself with Sam Kabert

Sam Kabert is another friend of mine in the Promo Industry and is known for his SWAG Sam personality.  But Sam has also become an expert in getting more done through the use of Virtual Assistants and speaks about that all over (he has even written a book about it).  Sam and I have a pretty soulful conversation about the ins and outs of getting more done…but being more fulfilled and happy.  Sam wants to go deep in his interviews and he does a great job drawing that out.  Listen to that conversation here.

There are some more great conversations coming up soon and I will share those as well.  But the book has done well (so far), in no small part to these amazing and gracious people that have been willing to have me on their podcasts…and lead a conversation.  I so appreciate them “giving first” in this way.
