SPOS #601 - Dan Heath On The Power Of Moments

Welcome to episode #601 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #601 - Host: Mitch Joel. The Heath Brothers (Chip and Dan) write some of the most compelling business books that that world has ever read. To this day, Made To Stick remains a staple and masterclass in how a brand can (and should) tell a better story. From the massive success of that book to Switch (all about change) and then Decisive (all about how to make better choices)... their books are just so powerful. Most recently, I devoured their latest business book, The Power of Moments. Why do certain experiences have specific impact on our lives? How is it that an event that took place when we were a child could be a hardwired value set that we carry with us to this day? Is it all just chance and luck (nature) or is their an opportunity for us to create moments like this (nurture)? I had the pleasure of discussing this and much more with Dan Heath. Along with writing brilliant business books with his brother, Dan is also a Senior Fellow at Duke University's CASE center, which supports social entrepreneurs. At CASE, he founded the Change Academy, a program designed to boost the impact of social sector leaders. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #600 - Smart Women In The New Economy With Magdalena Yesil

Welcome to episode #600 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #600 - Host: Mitch Joel. She has one of the most illustrious and prolific careers as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. She's been in that business for close to three decades. She has, literally, seen it all as an entrepreneur, VC and board member. Her investing career started at US Venture Partners. She was the first investor and founding board member at Salesforce and the founder of Broadway Angels, a female group of angel investors. A technology pioneer, Magdalena Yesil founded three companies dedicated to commercializing Internet access, e-commerce infrastructure, and electronic payments. Her current company, DriveInformed, uses technology to bring trust and transparency to the auto finance industry. She is also an author. Her latest book, Power Up - How Smart Women Win in the New Economy was recently published. There would, literally, not be a commercialized Internet if Magdalena had not brought her vision to life. With that, here we are. In a situation where equal pay, harassment and more is still (sadly) the bane of our society when it comes to women. From #metoo and bro culture to today, Magdalena has more than a few thoughts on where technology is going and how important woman are (and will be) to its future and freedom. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #599 - Better Brand Stories With Mark Evans

Welcome to episode #599 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #599 - Host: Mitch Joel. There is a real struggle in business today. Regardless of how far brands have travelled, when it comes to advertising, social media and content marketing, the vast majority of businesses today struggle with how to tell a great brand story. I've had the pleasure of knowing Mark Evans for a long while. We go all the way back to the early days of blogging (2003-ish). Back then, Mark held one of the most coveted roles in publishing, as the tech journalist for one of the largest national newspapers. As blogging took hold and social media transformed the media landscape, Mark did not just lie back and go quietly into the night. On the contrary, he embraced this new media. Now, he works as a consultant helping businesses to tell a better brand story. He's the author of Storytelling for Startups (which is going to be updated and renamed in 2018), and is an advisor to many other companies. Along with being an avid hockey and tennis player, he still writes... and even has one of Canada's leading newsletters on marketing. Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #598 - The Business Of Expertise With David C. Baker

Welcome to episode #598 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #598 - Host: Mitch Joel. Sometimes you come across an individual (and a book) and it just mystifies you. How is it possible that you had not heard of this person's work before? That was my reaction when I was introduced to the work of David C. Baker. His book, The Business of Expertise is simply brilliant. In a world where self-proclaimed Gurus and Thought Leaders are everywhere (and including these titles on LinkedIn), the work of David could not have come at a better time. Just who is an expert? And, if you truly are an expert, how do you turn it into a true business and revenue opportunity (without looking like a jerk)? David has done the real work. He has worked with 750+ firms and in-house departments on helping individuals to figure out the true value of their expertise. If that were not enough, he's also the author of Managing (Right) for the First Time and Financial Management of a Marketing Firm. Not just one to work on marketing, David also teaches racing to expert motorcycle racers and flies 25 different types of airplanes and helicopters (no joke!). Enjoy the conversation...

SPOS #597 - Find Your Potential With Mark Sanborn

Welcome to episode #597 of Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation - The Mirum Podcast - Episode #597 - Host: Mitch Joel. Have you read the book, The Fred Factor? It's one of those massive business book must-haves (like Who Moved My Cheese? And The Tipping Point). It has sold close to two million copies. The author is Mark Sanborn. I've been a fan of his work for a long time, but never had the chance to have a conversation with him (until now). He's written a ton of bestsellers since then (You Don't Need A Title To Be A Leader, Encore Effect, Fred 2.0 and many more). Most recently, this top-rated speaker and consultant published his latest, The Potential Principle. It's an amazing read and an important topic. What is your true potential? Do you know? Are you truly working it? How is that working out for you? In this episode, Mark discusses the power of our potential and why we should not squander it. Enjoy the conversation...
