Today's Flash Back Friday comes from Episode 66, originally published in January 2013.
Jason Hartman and Ken McArthur get together to talk about making an impact in people’s lives. People have the ability to make either a positive or negative difference in the lives of millions of people. Creating products and services or providing valuable solutions to problems can make a positive impact and Ken explains some of the techniques that aid in delivering that impact, such as color, sound, and repetition.
Ken then delves into the topic of joint ventures, a most powerful way to succeed from building great relationships. He stresses the importance of thinking of the other person in the venture and being relevant to the people with whom you are trying to network. He also encourages people, “Don’t think you have to do things alone and don’t think small."
Ken, best-selling author of “Impact: How to Get Noticed, Motivate Millions and Make a Difference in a Noisy World,” has enabled thousands of people to achieve amazing impact by championing the philosophy that partnerships and collaboration build value for everyone. Ken challenges us to realize we ALL have an impact – whether we want to or not – on thousands of people who we touch in our day-to-day lives by demonstrating that simple things make a HUGE difference.
