Speaking The Truth: How To Use Your Story To Carve A Path To Success With Joel Weldon

If someone who has been called the “worst speaker ever” can build himself up to become one of the world’s best, then learning how to carve your own path to success with your story shouldn’t be an impossible thing to do. For renowned motivational speaker, Joel Weldon, speaking is easy, but not because he had an innate gift for it. Starting out as someone who can barely speak to 17 people at age 28, Joel worked to develop his skills in speaking to make a successful career out of it – eventually becoming one of the original founders of the National Speakers Association. Building on the lessons he has acquired throughout his career, Joel created the Ultimate Speaking System – a veritable encyclopedia of best practices in persuasive message delivery perfected over four decades of experience. Join in as Mitch Russo brings him in to the show to disclose how you can take your one-on-one communication skills to an even higher level and use your speaking skills to create videos, appear on podcasts, conduct webinars and engage in virtual one-on-one calls during COVID-19.

FTC Mark | Landscape Management Network

From Grass To SaaS: The Evolution Of Landscape Management Network With Mark Bradley

It seems a long way from cutting grass to dominating an entire niche in the world of SaaS, but that’s exactly what Mark Bradley did over the course of his entrepreneurship journey. Before founding Landscape Management Network, Mark’s only means of employment was mowing lawns, but he had always known that he wanted more out of life. To achieve that, he started his own lawn care company. As his business grew bigger and busier, he searched far and wide for software tools to help him manage it – all to no avail. Driven by necessity, Mark created his own, marking the beginning of what would become the leading producer of management tools for landscape management. Listen in as he recounts his journey and the lessons that he learned from it in this conversation with Mitch Russo.
