Kurzportrait von Michael Pieper Michael Pieper ist Diplompädagoge und Mediator Er ist Redakteur bei Markenkonstrukt Kontakt Michael auf Facebook   [et_pb_toggle admin_label="Toggle" title="Podcast in Textform" open="off" use_border_color="off" border_color="#ffffff" border_style="solid"]   Norman: Herzlich Willkommen. Schön, dass ihr wieder reinhört. Hier ist Norman von MARKENREBELL.FM. Heute mit einer speziellen Podcastfolge, denn neben mir sitzt im Podcaststudio, hier in Amorbach, Michael Pieper. Hallo Michael! Michael: Hallo Norman. Schönen guten Morgen. Norman: Schön, dass Du da bist. Michael, um Dich kurz vorzustellen: Du bist Redakteur bei Markenkonstrukt, bist Diplompädagoge und Mediator. Michael: Genau. Norman: Und vielleicht kannst Du selber nochmal ein bisschen über Dich erzählen und was natürlich super spannend ist: was macht ein Mediator? Michael: Ja, ich habe bevor ich zu Markenkonstrukt gekommen bin, lange in der sozialen Arbeit gearbeitet in ganz verschiedenen Bereichen. Viel mit Jugendlichen, ich habe einen Jugendtreff geleitet, bin in Schulen unterwegs gewesen. Ich habe viel zu dem Thema soziale Kompetenzen gemacht und hab mich dann später auf den Bereich Mediationen spezialisiert. Ein Mediator ist vereinfacht gesagt ein Konfliktvermittler. Also, ich habe da wirklich in den unterschiedlichsten Konflikten vermittelt mit meiner Kollegin zusammen; Nachbarschaftsstreitereien, Ehestreitereien, Konflikte zwischen Mitarbeitern und Führungspersonal. Alle möglichen Arten von Konflikten haben wir da mediiert. Norman: Du bist stresserprobt. Michael: Ja, auf jeden Fall gerade in dieser Rolle. Dann ist es wirklich etwas Anderes, weil ich habe auch im Vorfeld nochmal darüber nachgedacht. Wenn man selber Konfliktpartei ist, ist es etwas Anderes, wenn man sich selber ungerecht behandelt fühlt oder so. Aber in der Rolle des Mediators hat man halt einfach diese professionelle Einstellung, Haltung und geht dann auch entsprechend rein und kann dann auch zumindest phasenweise den Stress auch anders bewältigen. Norman: Wenn man sich zum Thema Kommunikation austauscht und wenn man zwei Parteien hat, selbst wenn das beides Kommunikationsprofis sind, fällt es denen natürlich selbst oft schwer, zu schlichten und  sie sind dann angewiesen auf Spezialisten, Experten wie Du einer bist. Mit dem Blick von außen, aber auch mit dem Verständnis für die Mechanismen, für die Methoden vielleicht auch, die man anwenden kann, um diesen Streit, diesen Konflikt zu lösen. Michael: Richtig, absolut. Kann ich nur bestätigen. Wie gesagt, ich glaube ich bin selber in Konflikten ein ganz schwieriger Kandidat, aber als Mediator denke ich, bin ich ganz brauchbar. Norman: Wenn ich das an dieser Stelle vielleicht sagen darf, ich erlebe Dich und das finde ich super spannend ... Wir haben viele tolle Gespräch geführt, sehr tiefgründige Gespräche, wo es dann auch um Verhaltenspsychologie ging und eigentlich schon fast in die Richtung Persönlichkeitsentwicklung. Also es sind ja tatsächlich auch ein paar Themen, die das auch berührt und deswegen freue ich mich auch total auf unser Thema. Denn unser Thema heute ist das Thema „Gewaltfreie Kommunikation, der Weg zu den eigenen Bedürfnissen.“ Michael: Ja genau. Norman: Schön. Ja. Michael: Ich freue mich auch. Und ich finde das ist auch ein ganz spannendes Thema und auch man könnte sagen, aktueller denn je. Ja vielleicht, ich weiß nicht, diejenigen, die es nicht kennen, verbinden vielleicht ....  Der Begriff der gewaltfreien Kommunikation hört sich jetzt ein bisschen hippiemäßig an, aber es ist wirklich eine ganz spannende Sache. Man könnte es jetzt auch zeitgenössischer - weil es auch schon eine Methode die es länger gibt - mit konstruktiver Kommunikation oder so übersetzen. Denn im Kern geht es einfach darum, wie ich mit meinem Gegenüber kommuniziere, dass für uns, bildlich gesprochen, die Bälle hin- und her spielen und wir uns nicht den Ball immer gegenseitig wegnehmen. Norman: Ja. Michael: Also einfach einen positiven Kommunikationsfluss zu erzeugen und das ist in allen Lebensbereichen von Vorteil. Ob es in der Partnerschaft ist, ob es im Beruf ist. Also überall wo Kommunikation ist, ist es auch sinnvoll, konstruktiv zu kommunizieren. Denn sonst, ohne jetzt schon wieder zu sehr ins Referieren zu kommen, blockieren wir uns einfach und dann folgt Abwehrmanöver auf Abwehrmanöver, um mit Birkenbihl zum Beispiel zu zitieren. Dann ist eine Blockade da und dann geht es nicht weiter und dann, gerade jetzt zum Beispiel in Firmensituationen, ist dann oft auch eine Form von Sabotage anzufinden oder ich fange an dem anderen etwas zu unterstellen, was der gar nicht beabsichtigt, aber dann gehen die Bilder los. Es spricht also vieles dafür, gewaltfrei zu kommunizieren.   Marshall Rosenberg, der Gründer der gewaltfreien Kommunikation, das muss man einfach dazu sagen, nimmt den Gewaltgedanken sehr weit, er fasst ihn sehr weit. Also Gewalt jetzt nicht nur im Sinne von Aggression oder auch verbaler .... Ich sag jetzt mal so, eine abwertende Form von Kommunikation, wäre schon aus seiner Sicht, Gewalt. Norman: Bevor wir da tiefer einsteigen - man bemerkt schon, dass Du mit Begeisterung und Leidenschaft zu dem Thema sprechen kannst und willst. Noch ganz kurz zum Intro: Grundsätzlich gehört ja Kommunikation erstmal zu den elementaren Bedürfnissen der Menschen, um miteinander in Austausch zu treten. Das ist jetzt keine wahnsinnige Neuigkeit. Michael: Nee, aber es ist immer gut, sich das mal zu vergegenwärtigen. Norman: Vielleicht im Bezug oder im Hinblick auf die gewaltfreie Kommunikation: Ist es nicht letztendlich auch in erster Linie der Zugang zu sich selbst, den ich habe um so mit meinen Gefühlen und Emotionen in Verbindung zu treten? Vielleicht kannst Du dazu noch kurz etwas sagen. Michael: Ja, absolut. Im Grunde sprichst Du jetzt schon mehr oder weniger, sage ich mal, den Kern auch dieses Konzeptes an. Denn da geht es einfach um eine empathische Form der Kommunikation, also um sich einzufühlen auch in den Anderen und dazu denke ich, ist es genauso wichtig, auch über die eigene Gefühlslage und auch über die eigene Bedürfnislage Bescheid zu wissen. Das sind im Grunde die Grundvoraussetzungen. Was mir noch dazu einfällt ist, dass als ich mich damit konkret angefangen habe zu befassen, ich darüber auch tatsächlich verstärkter angefangen habe über eigene Gefühle, Bedürfnisse nachzudenken. Auch losgelöst von Kommunikation, denn Du hast auch gesagt - Stichwort Persönlichkeitsentwicklung - und ich finde, das ist wirklich ein ganz wichtiges Feld. Vielleicht sind wir noch bei alten Rollenbilder ... Und auch der Mann, „Indianer kennt keinen Schmerz“ So sind wir ja auch immer so ein bisschen  ... Stehen wir vor der Herausforderung, dürfen wir jetzt eigentlich Gefühle haben und zulassen und wie gehen wir damit um? - und so weiter. Ich habe nur immer gemerkt, dass wenn ich anfange die zu unterdrücken, wird es hinterher doppelt schlimm, also habe ich irgendwie notgedrungen angefangen, mich damit zu befassen, um so wie auch Rosenberg zum Beispiel immer sagt, „Auch irgendwann anzufangen, die Verantwortung auch für meine Gefühle zu übernehmen.“ Norman: Selbst die Verantwortung übernehmen. Michael: Genau und damit auch der Schuldige.... Mir geht es schlecht, weil der irgendwas mit mir gemacht hat und das wäre nicht verantwortungsvoll. Norman: Also ich glaube, das ist auch so eine ganz wichtige Erkenntnis, wenn man sich mit diesem Thema beschäftigt. Für seine Emotionen und Gefühle wirklich, wie Du sagst, selbst die Verantwortung zu übernehmen. Weil oftmals ist es ja auch im Sprachgebrauch, „Ich fühle mich schlecht, weil Du ...“ Michael: Ganz genau. Norman: Dass ich dann auf diese Art und Weise anfange .... Ich zwar in Form von Ich-Botschaften in dem Moment spreche, da sind wir ja schon fast wieder bei der Methodik: Wie bringe ich das zum Ausdruck? Aber diese Ich-Botschaft ist ja im Grunde die Schuldzuweisung, indem ich sage, „Ich fühle mich schlecht, weil Du ...“ Michael: Ganz genau. Norman: Was ich auch noch einen spannenden Gedanken finde, ist dieses Thema Kopf, Herz. Wie kann ich das formulieren? Wie kann ich es schaffen, der Kopf ist ja .... der Gedanke ist ja viel schneller, als die Wahrnehmung des Gefühls, die von Herzen kommt. Also ich bin in einer Konfliktsituation und in meinem Kopf passiert ja dann Feuerwerk, da passiert ja dann alles. Da passiert auf einmal  Wut und das ist ja eine ganz klares Pseudogefühl, was dadurch entsteht. Kopf sagt: „Ich werde gemobbt“. Ist ja ein Pseudogefühl. Im Herzen ist dann ein echtes Gefühl und eine echte Emotion, die dann heißt, ich bin traurig. Michael: Ja. Norman: Also wie schaffe ich es in solchen Momenten den kühlen Kopf zu behalten und auch vielleicht zu einem späteren Moment auf mein Herz zu hören. Michael: Ich sage mal so. Auf der einen Seite ist es eine lebenslange Herausforderung, der man sich in irgendeiner Form dann annähern kann und welche vielleicht auch mal besser und mal schlechter gelingt. Das ist meiner Erfahrung nach, von vielen unterschiedlichen Faktoren abhängig und ich selber, wenn ich jetzt zurückblicke, habe schon so manches Mal gedacht, ich wäre schon „weiter“. Aber dann hat sich vielleicht eine äußere Faktorenlage so verdichtet, dass mir genau das dann auch wieder passiert ist und ich total unreflektiert und mich bedroht gefühlt habe und dann ganz unvernünftig aus diesen Pseudogefühlen heraus, reagiert habe. Aber um jetzt Mal wieder konstruktiv zu werden und zum B

134: Let’s Do This! with Michael Breed

In 2003, he was selected as a Top 100 Instructor in America by Golf Magazine.

He has also been a part of the broadcast team for Golf Channel's coverage of the Nationwide Tour and PGA Tour serving as an on course commentator, since 1999, and serves as the analyst for PGA.com in its coverage of the PGA Championship, PGA Professional National Championship, and the Ryder Cup.

417 - Michael Dohlen - Sidepreneur: Unternehmer als Nebenjob  

Michael ist leitender Angestellter in einer Digital Agentur in Düsseldorf und lebt seine Unternehmer-Leidenschaft nebenberuflich in verschiedenen Online-Projekten aus. Für Michael ist das größte Hobby das Experimentieren mit digitalen Geschäftsmodellen. Abseits des Unternehmertums liebt Michael Fußball, den SVW, zu Reisen und Zeit mit seiner Familie und Freunden zu verbringen.

Seine Eltern wissen nicht genau, woher die Begeisterung und Leidenschaft fürs Unternehmertum kommt, doch Michael kann sich an ein prägendes Erlebnis aus seiner Kindheit erinnern. Als ein lauter Porsche an ihm vorbei fuhr und ihn faszinierte, fragte er seine nebenstehende Tante, was man denn werden müsse, um solch ein Auto fahren zu können. Diese sagte ihm: „Michael, dafür musst du am besten Unternehmer werden“. Seine Mutter verstand das eher als „Flausen in den Kopf setzen“, doch bei Michael war der Funke übergesprungen.

So begann er schon während der Schulzeit auf dem Pausenhof Dinge an seine Mitschüler zu verkaufen und auch neben dem Abitur und Studium verdiente Michael erstes Geld durch den Verkauf von selbst produzierten Produkten wie Vogelvolieren oder auch digitalen Produkten wie Bauanleitungen für einen Pokertisch.

Nach dem Studium verschlug es Michael in die Startup-Szene und in Inkubatoren auf der ganzen Welt. In Hamburg baute Michael ein Startup im Couponing Bereich für verschiedene Emerging Markets mit auf, in den USA wurden Studenten bei der Gründung von Unternehmen beraten und in Asien leitete Michael den Aufbau eines MyTaxi-Clons für den asiatischen Markt.

Zwei eigene Startup-Versuche lieferten anschließend leider nicht den erhofften Erfolg, so dass Michael seine Karriere als Angestellter startete. Doch eine vorhandene Leidenschaft geht nicht verloren. So setzt Michael heute verschiedene Online-Projekte nebenberuflich um und verdient ein nettes Zusatzeinkommen mit dieser Form der Selbstständigkeit, ohne volles Risiko gehen zu müssen.

Im April 2015 startete Michael die Sidepreneur-Plattform und Community, die Angestellte über die nebenberufliche Selbstständigkeit informieren sollen und diese untereinander vernetzt. Mittlerweile erreicht der Blog mehrere Tausend Unternehmer monatlich und der Podcast erreichte schon verschiedene Top-Rankings im Bereich Wirtschaft sowie Karriere.

Sein neustes Projekt, welches ebenfalls nebenberuflich aufgebaut wird und noch in 2015 in einer Beta-Phase startet, trägt den Namen MastermindGroups.de. Michael lernte bereits während seiner Zeit in den USA die Kraft solcher Gruppen von Gleichgesinnten kennen und erhält mittlerweile immer mehr Nachfragen, wie man eine solche Gruppe finden oder gründen kann. Zu diesem Zweck werden ein Vermittlungs-Service und eine umgebene Community aufgebaut, die gemeinsam am Erfolg und Wachstum der Unternehmer mitwirkt.

Michael wird auch in Zukunft immer wieder mit digitalen Geschäftsmodellen experimentieren, viele Projekte starten und weitere Online-Unternehmer sowie Startups auf ihrem Weg als Berater und Unterstützer begleiten.

Dein Pitch: 

Mein Name ist Michael Dohlen.

Ich bin Sidepreneur, d.h. ich habe einen tollen Vollzeitjob in einer Düsseldorfer Digital Agentur und bin nebenberuflich selbstständig mit versch. Online-Projekten.

Dein schlimmster Moment als Unternehmer? 

Bei meinem 2. Startup-Versuch, bei dem ich eine Mobile App im Bereich des "Second Screens" versuchte an den markt zu bringen.

Ich setzte alles auf diese eine Karte, lebte ohne eigenes Gehalt von Erspartem und habe sogar ein paar Schulden gemacht um meinen Partner und Programmierer ein kleines Gehalt bezahlen zu können.

Leider ließ mich der Partner und Programmierer mit einem nur 70%-fertigem Produkt über Nacht sitzen, um eine Vollzeitstelle anzunehmen.

Ich stand ich vor einem Scherbenhaufen

https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/chinesemedicine My guest on today's podcast, Dr. Michael Smith, hails from the First Nations in Canada, grew up on the diet of his indigenous ancestors eating wild organ meats from the animals he hunted and feasting from the wild salmon that he caught. He learned many of the medicine traditions and the "Medicine Wheel" of the First Nations people. He studied Martial Arts and taught Canadian Military self defense techniques, and along the way, his Martial Arts teacher took him aside to say to tell him that he was "more of a healer than a fighter". His teacher then began to teach him the Oral Tradition of Classical Oriental Science, or better known as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Michael is now a huge pillar in the healing community of Nelson, BC. For example, restaurants in the Nelson area will produce a special menu at certain times of year when he holds the event of cleansing season. He's helped with bringing Medical Cannabis dispensaries to the city and produces supplements paired with Cannabis Medicine sold there. You often see him ushering in folks at open public sweat lodge ceremonies with burning of sage. Michael is an author, speaker, professional martial artist, teacher and clinician, and a respected integrative medicine pioneer with over 20 years experience. In his Nelson, British Columbia practice he combines functional medicine and evolutionary nutrition with the ancient wisdom and vast experience of Traditional Chinese medicine. His primary focus in medicine is complex chronic auto-immune diseases (as a patient, Michael had lived with both Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis for well over 20 years). He is a co-founder of the prestigious Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences, the first five year full time doctorate level training program in TCM in Canada. He is also the primary developer of Neuro-Somatic Therapy, a hands on approach to reducing the way people embody distress, illness and trauma. As a Martial Artist, Michael has been training for almost 40 years. He has had the good fortune to train with some of the highest level teachers in the Western world, including a teacher of the late Bruce Lee. After training prison guards, police officers and members of both military and paramilitary organizations, Michael decided to leave traditional martial arts and develop his own approach to resolving physical violence. He has taught this approach, called Applied Combatives, for over 20 years. During our discussion, you'll discover: -The fascinating ancestral health, Dr. Smith learned while growing up in a hunting lodge with the "Mud Clan" First Nations...[9:55] -How Michael got Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis that lasted for well over 20 years, and how he fixed himself...[14:40] -What your body is telling you if you can see vegetables in your poop...[18:00] -Michael's mouthwatering "ancestral" recipe for salmon rillette roulade...[21:30] -Why Michael believes you should drink one liter of water within the first two hours upon waking...[25:45] -The fascinating concept of gently "blowing" on your water before you drink it...[29:45] -How Michael developed something called "neurosomatic therapy", and why some people go into a fit of rage after having it done...[42:40] -How Michael implements blood letting, needling and cupping in his practice...[48:50] -The shocking way that acupuncture has been used during open heart surgery for anesthesia...[56:05] -Michael's thoughts on dream interpretation (e.g. associating teeth falling out in dreams as deficiency of Kidney Qi)...[59:15] -Whether drinking your own urine is really a component of Chinese medicine...[67:20] -How pulse diagnosis and tongue diagnosis work? [72:45] -And much more...

#101: How to Intentionally Design the Life You Want with Michael Hyatt  

When my dear friend Michael Hyatt said he was going to come by to join us for our latest episode, I knew it was going to be good, and profound.

And in my latest episode, he doesn’t disappoint, ladies and gentlemen...

Because he’s talking about the ONE thing we should be focused on in our lives: Our life plan. It’s all tied to his latest book, Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want, which Michael co-authored with Daniel Harkavy.

Why, you might ask, is a life plan more important than many areas of your business?

Because, as Michael says:

“A failure in one area can reverberate and cascade into other areas of our life.”

So when you’re overall life plan is off track, then your business is naturally off. According to Michael, when you’re what he calls “drifting,” you’re distracted, overwhelmed and unaware of where you should put your focus. This can create an environment for failure.

Michael helps you understand that by getting your priorities in line, so you can be prepared to make the little decisions you need to get the big results you want out of your business, and in life.

Because, it’s not the big moves that determine the quality of our output, it’s actually the little actions. In last week’s episode, I explained how I grew my business via incremental steps and not one large move.

Michael takes this one step further to help us decide what we should be focusing on in our lives, so that we are prepared and patient enough to conquer those little steps.

To get started, he prompts you to ask yourself:
1. How do you want to be remembered?
2. What is most important to you?
3. How do I get from here (wherever that is) to where I want to be?

Michael then shares the surprising reality about putting yourself first. (It’s a tough lesson.)

The book is packed with great insights, and Michael has a special deal if you buy the book tomorrow (March 11). If you purchase Living Forward by tomorrow, Michael will give you for FREE:

· A detailed action plan guide
· The Living Forward quick-start audio training
· A custom Living Forward adult coloring book

To claim your bonus:
· Visit the following link and follow the prompts http://livingforwardbook.com/#claimbonuses

After talking with Michael, I am more empowered than ever to determine a clear destination and make the tough choices I need to make to get me there.

So my friends, get ready to be present, be engaged and be fully focused. Get ready for a life of less drifting, and more fulfillment. Go here now to check out this special interview with Michael.

I first met Michael Franzese through Pinnacle Forum where he is a partner with me.  His story of redemption and forgiveness is one of the most powerful I have ever heard, and will give you renewed hope in the One who came to give life, and give it more abundantly!  


Michael's story is now a major motion picture that is a must see!

God The Father...takes us on the untold personal journey of Michael Franzese, a young and charismatic Capo in the Colombo Crime family during the 1980‘s-90‘s and whose notorious father, Sonny Franzese was also a renowned Underboss. Following in his father’s footsteps in the mid-1980s, Fortune Magazine named Franzese as number #18 on its list of the "Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses".

According to a Federal report, Franzese made more money for a crime family than anyone since Chicago Outfit boss, Al Capone.  A revelation that Michael’s own father went along with a contract hit on his life; Michael’s love for his wife and children; and the realization his own life was heading the same way as every other mob guy that came before him...straight to ST. JOHNS Cemetery in NYC, Michael took the decision to leave the ‘Life’.

An act previously thought impossible...Michael Franzese publicly walked away from the Colombo family and organized crime. During his time in prison, Michael discovered the Bible. Devouring its contents, Michael found parallels between the Good Book’s teachings and his experiences in the ‘Life’ which translated into Michael developing his own unique religious perspective and faith. It is a faith that is directly responsible for his still being alive today.

God The Father...utilizes every cinematic ingredient available to tell Michael Franzese’s remarkable journey from a ‘made man’ to a man of God. From choreographed dance sequences, traditional interviews, stock footage, visceral re-enactments and sophisticated animation sequences...specifically designed to show the more violent aspects of mob life, in a subtle and intelligent way. This film is the first time the Michael Franzese story has ever been told cinematically and with such originality and power.

Blogging Success: How to Create Content People Love  

Do you want to drive more traffic to your website? Would you like to create content that people would go crazy for? To learn the secrets of attention-grabbing blog posts that generate traffic, I interview Michael Hyatt for this episode of the Social Media Marketing podcast. More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is a show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. The show format is on-demand talk radio (also known as podcasting). In this episode, I interview Michael Hyatt, author of Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World, former CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishers, and the host of the This Is Your Life podcast. Michael shares his experiences as a successful blogger and content creator. You'll learn why headlines and photos are the most attention-grabbing aspects of your articles. Share your feedback, read the show notes and get the links mentioned in this episode below! Listen Now You can also subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher. Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Content Creation Michael tells the story of when he first started blogging in 2004. He was the CEO at Thomas Nelson and saw blogging as a means to communicate with his own employees. It was a way to be innovative, rather than sending out standard email newsletters. It wasn't until someone suggested opening it up to the public that he thought it was a cool idea and maybe could become an archive for his best thinking. Listen to the show to hear about Michael's blogging schedule when he first started. What evergreen content brings to your website Michael's blog today averages around 300-400 blog comments a day. Michael explains that about half of his traffic comes from older posts. These include posts that he wrote 2-3 years ago that still get a huge amount of comments today. Michael shares how he promotes his older posts. One of the tactics he uses is to bulk upload and schedule tweets in SocialOomph for older articles such as this one: Our words carry enormous weight. More than we sometimes think. "How Our Words Impact Others." mhyatt.us/gIC8Vn — Michael Hyatt (@MichaelHyatt) November 18, 2012   Michael had the idea from when he was working in the book publishing world. Publishers have two types of books: new books (newly published or yet to be released) and a backlist (an archive of content). For large publishing companies such as Thomas Nelson, 50-60% of their revenue can come from their backlist. Most bloggers don't have a strategy for this. They write it, it disappears and then it's gone forever. Listen to the show to find out Michael's secret for keeping his older blog posts up to date and continuing to drive more traffic. How to write killer blog posts Over time Michael has written about 1,400 posts. You'll learn how he tries to start from the reader's perspective and frame everything in terms of his or her needs. Somebody once said, "People are tuned into WIIFM (Whats In It For Me)." You have to write from this particular viewpoint if you're going to be successful. Look at what other people's hopes, fears, frustrations and obstacles are. And don't assume that everybody knows what you know. Michael talks about how a lot of his how-to articles stem from what he needs to find out and then he documents the process for his readers. These articles bring him a ton of traffic every day. Listen to the show to learn why the how-to articles have been the most successful for Michael. Topics to write about Michael explains how he uses "intentional leadership" as a filter for content on his website. He shares how he might look at a current event and reframe it into a leadership lesson. You'll also learn how to decide what to publish on your site and how to stay focused on being good at what you do. Listen to the show to find out why giving away you...

Launch Strategy: A Case Study in How to Move People to Action  

Are you planning to release a book, podcast, or other product? Want to make your launch a success? To discover how he launched his latest bestselling book, I interview Michael Hyatt. More About This Show The Social Media Marketing podcast is an on-demand talk radio show from Social Media Examiner. It's designed to help busy marketers and business owners discover what works with social media marketing. In this episode I interview Michael Hyatt, author of Platform and co-author of the new book, Living Forward. He's also the host of the This Is Your Life podcast and he blogs at MichaelHyatt.com. In his prior life, Michael was the CEO and chairman of book publisher Thomas Nelson. Michael explores how he launched his latest Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestseller, Living Forward: A Proven Plan to Stop Drifting and Get the Life You Want. You'll discover how to create a launch plan for any project. Share your feedback, read the show notes, and get the links mentioned in this episode below. Listen Now You can also subscribe via iTunes, RSS, or Stitcher. Here are some of the things you'll discover in this show: Launch Strategy Why write a physical book in the digital age? Michael has Living Forward available as an audio book, an ebook, and a print book. Since everyone talks about digital books, you'd think physical books are obsolete, Michael says. The truth is ebooks are only 25% of the market; the other 75% are physical books. Publishing only in digital format would mean missing the vast majority of the potential market. Furthermore, as of now, you don't really have a chance to reach any of the major bestsellers lists unless you publish a traditional book, he adds. The New York Times has an ebook bestsellers list, but those are really only for digital editions of physical books. You also don't have much chance of getting any major media unless you publish a physical book, because most of the gatekeepers in traditional media want to see a print book. Finally, an ebook doesn't have the same cultural authority as a traditional hardcover book. There are a lot of reasons to write a book, but Michael doesn't know of anything that can give you more authority in your niche than having a published book. An ebook is better than nothing, but it's not as good as a traditionally published hardcover book, he says. There are other benefits to being a bestselling author. If you're a speaker, you can be introduced with that moniker. It also enables you to increase the prices of whatever you're selling and helps with distribution. There's a limited amount of shelf space in conventional bookstores. They are risk-averse in what they order, because they get stuck with books they can't sell. Even though they can return unsold books to the publisher, it's just a hassle, he says. Once your book gets on the bestsellers list, the retailers that didn't initially order your book have to have it all of a sudden. Listen to the show to learn more about Michael's 35-year background in publishing. About Living Forward Michael says Living Forward is about creating a life plan. Michael wanted to help people stop drifting through life, become intentional, and start designing the outcomes they want. He learned these things when he started working with an executive coach around 2000. After he became a divisional manager at Thomas Nelson, Michael and his team were working like crazy to build up the division. They got to number one in 18 months, but the cost was life balance. When Michael told his friend, author John Maxwell, that he was looking for a coach, John introduced him to Daniel Harkavy, the CEO of Building Champions. Daniel became his coach for a decade, as well as a good friend. One of the first things Daniel taught Michael was how to create a written life plan. His life plan was so transformational that Michael began to write about it on his blog. A while later,

The Art of Story
Michael's story

Michael shares how he started his career as an actor. He has a master from the graduate acting program at New York University. Michael worked professionally on the shows Sex and the City, Third Watch, All My Children, Law & Order and 100 Center Street, as well as in the films The Pelican Brief, Down to Earth and The Believer. He earned a living doing commercial voice overs for companies including AT&T, Pizza Hut, Braun, Coors Beer, MTV and others.

After he left acting, Michael says he decided to talk his way into a job for which he was completely unqualified. He pitched himself, got the job and worked his way up in the fitness industry on the business side. He credits his post-acting success to being an actor, as he was able to perform during life's high-stakes situations.

When the spotlight and eyes are on you, the way you perform will determine the quality of your life, Michael says.

After Michael left the fitness industry, he went into consulting for businesses and started writing books, and he saw it more and more. Over the last 13 years, Michael realized he had to meld his experience and training as an actor, his experience as a professional keynoter and what he knows about the business world.

That's what Steal the Show is about, Michael says. Half the book is on the techniques associated with being a great public speaker and the other half is focused on performing during life's everyday situations.

Listen to the show to learn more about how Michael coaches speakers, as well as why he originally resisted helping people with their public speaking.

Why people love stories

People love narrative, wonder and imagination, Michael says. Stories can get us out of our own head and into another world. We turn everything into a story, he continues. Politics, religion, love, our success or our failures become stories. Sometimes the stories we tell actually get in our way and sometimes they can change the world.

Michael talks about a researcher named Jonathan Gottschall, who studies the neuroscience behind stories. Jonathan says the constant firing of our neurons in response to fictional stimuli strengthens and refines the neural pathways that lead to skillful navigation of life's problems.

Listen to the show to discover in what way projects are stories.
