OTS 044: Communicating Across Disability – Robbie Samuels
Welcome back to On the Schmooze. Thank you so much for joining me. Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Mary Pilon, this week you’ll be hearing from me, your host. Every other week I’ll be offering my take on some aspect of networking and relationship-building. These shorter podcast episodes will include practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. My hope is those insights from me, and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. This week, I'll be sharing tips to help you more effectively and inclusively network with people with disabilities. This is an excerpt from my soon to be released book “Croissants vs. Bagels: Strategic, Effective, and Inclusive Networking at Conferences.” Subscribe and leave an honest rating and review on iTunes. Thanks! Creating a welcoming event is a multi-faceted endeavor and I would be remiss if I did not offer some guidance on how to communicate with a person with a disability. Unfortunately, the angst people have about networking gets amplified when given the opportunity to connect with those with disabilities. This may be true even if you have a disability yourself. Some people choose to avoid engaging rather than do or say something wrong. Others make an awkward, hesitant effort, which is sometimes perceived as inconsiderate, and rather than making someone feel included may have the exact opposite effect. The bottom line is to be respectful. Aside from that basic tenet, there are some things to keep in mind when communicating with someone who is differently-abled than you. Listen to the rest of this episode... On the Schmooze is on C-Suite Radio. Listen to our show and many other great business podcasts at C-SuiteRadio.com. Want to be able to print these tips with ease and share them? Send me the transcript! Do you host a conference or convention and want your attendees to feel that your event was incredibly valuable because of all the connections they made? I work with associations and companies to design events that increase engagement and create a welcoming culture for all attendees, especially your first-time attendees. The result is that long-time attendees, presenters, and board members have a host mentality and all attendees have the tools to strategically build relationships and their professional network at your event. If you want to increase ROI for your attendees and therefore their retention, email me to schedule a call. Is networking an important, but your least favorite, part of your job? My coaching clients felt the same way. Through a combination of technical tips, accountability, and a bit of inspiration, I help leaders stop wasting time networking and start building great relationships. If that is what you’re looking for I would love to chat, email me to schedule a call. Learn about my Art of the Schmooze session on effective and inclusive networking, and the other sessions I offer.

OTS 073: RISE-UP – Michael Roderick
Today’s guest went from high school English teacher to Broadway producer in under two years. How? Relationships. He is a social catalyst who believes in the power of making meaningful connections for others. His success led him to develop a methodology that he teaches through his company Small Pond Enterprises which specializes in relationship design for founders, authors, and speakers interested in playing a bigger game. He works with thought leaders to curate, extend, and leverage their existing networks. He cemented his reputation as a connector by founding ConnectorCon, a conference for a powerful community of thoughtful connectors who recognize the power of living in a world of abundance rather than scarcity -- and he co-hosts the Access to Anyone podcast. Please join me in welcoming Michael Roderick. Would you leave an honest rating and review on iTunes? Or Stitcher? They are extremely helpful and I read each and every one of them. Thanks for the inspiration! On the Schmooze is on C-Suite Radio. Listen to our show and many other great business podcasts at C-SuiteRadio.com. In this episode we explore: how being a teacher taught him the art of truly understanding what another person is going through, and how important it is to offer empathy before focusing on your own wants and needs. his mnemonic device for adding value to other people’s lives: RISE-UP. his thoughts on diversity: “there are no diversity problems in interests.” If you connect with people around shared interests you can broaden the diversity of your network. how he separates his work environment from his home environment by not ever bringing his work stuff into his non-work areas of his house. his process for being a superconnector: how he uses a spreadsheet and analyzes conversations to help connect people who will bring value to each others lives. his views on connections, and how people often keep draining people in their lives for fear of hurting someone’s feelings. However, “we have complete control over who we have in our lives,” and when we let go of the ones who don’t fit, we make room for others who do. What were the key takeaways you plan to put into practice this week and benefit from for years to come? Share your thoughts in the comments.

OTS 074: Super Connector – Darrah Brustein
Today’s guest is a fellow super-connector, serial entrepreneur, and author. Her first business, founded in 2009, is a credit card processing company which spans 38 states. She next launched Network Under 40 in 2011 to help people make valuable social and professional connections that lead to friendships and business. This endeavor is now hosting sold-out events in 7 U.S. cities. She also founded Finance Whiz Kids in 2012 to teach elementary aged kids the basics of financial literacy through fun and engaging stories. Her kids’ book series by the same name caught the attention of the World Economic Forum and she was invited to their Annual Meeting in Davos to present about youth financial literacy. The through line of everything she does is what she calls “netweaving” - connecting the dots between one person or business to another. She gets so much joy from helping others get closer to their goals and has learned, in turn, that what goes around, comes around. To inspire others to follow suit, she founded the social movement #GiveItForward, which aims to empower 1,000,000 people to intentionally give to one person in some way every day, with no strings attached. Please join me in welcoming Darrah Brustein. On the Schmooze is on C-Suite Radio. Listen to our show and many other great business podcasts at C-SuiteRadio.com. In this episode we explore: her thoughts on leadership: Leadership is assessing whether it is more critical to stand in the spotlight or to provide support for someone else taking the reins, and then working where you are needed to empower those around you. how her biggest piece of advice for others is to understand how valuable follow through is, and how follow through is the biggest differential between people who are consistently successful vs. those who are not. her motivation for starting Networking Under 40, which is now active in 7 cities, with over 30,000 people involved. how she was able to grow to a place in her career where she has flexibility with her time, and now gets to pursue her passion for teaching others through speaking, writing, and many other outlets. her definition of a super connector - someone who can’t help but go into the world and pair people together based on their different needs and offerings. how she aligns her relationships to allow her to genuinely engage with people on a regular basis, and uses Google Calendar to help her engage consistently.

Today’s guest is a storyteller whose career began at age 12 when she scored her first paid writing gig. Her writing career has only gained momentum since, with regular contributions to Inc., Entrepreneur, and Huffington Post.  She is also no stranger to radio and television. Her work has been featured on CNN, ABC, CBC, The New York Times, Reader's Digest… just to name a few. She is also a keynote speaker, TV personality and host of her own podcast. I mention all of her success getting visibility through different media channels because through her course Baby Got Booked, she teaches others how to grab the attention of a busy producer, editor, blogger or podcaster, and make an audience fall in love with you. So much of what she shares and how she built her business is about relationship building that I had to have her on On the Schmooze.

I think that people rely on leaders to have that sort of calmness but also to be these engines that drive everything forward.” lessons learned early on when she was trying to prove her worth as a new manager are now the lessons she teaches her clients. young managers should take advantage of being young by seeking mentors, doing so will make you seem open to feedback and learning. strategies to broaden her professional network includes hosting a variety of events at her home. “I’m better at being a host than a guest.” What were the key takeaways you plan to put into practice this week and benefit from for years to come?

OTS 165: Grow a Bigger Pie – Melony Swasey
For today’s guest, the joy in real estate sales is forging genuine relationships with her clients.

She’s closed over $100 million in sales in nine years and 85% percent of her business is from referrals or repeat clients. I’ve mentioned more than once on this show how I have had less than stellar encounters with pushy real estate professionals whose marketing strategies can best be described as spray and pray.

You want to have a greater impact and increased income. The problem is that there are so many options for how to build your business that you can feel stuck, overwhelmed, and like you're running out of time.
