The Nice Guys on Business

Listen in, subscribe, or join the Nice Guy Community and become a Funk'nFan of the show. Relationships, honesty, trust and integrity build business today and that's what the Nice Guys are all about.

If inspirational and motivational words make an impact in your life you are going to love our guest today, not just because of the words she says, but because of her incredible story.  Pratima Aravabhoomi  is the founder of a company called Craft Street Design and she is doing some very cool things with inspiring quotes and messages.

 

Here are some of the answers you'll hear on the podcasst today:

When did you know it was time to start your own business and where did you find the support you needed?

You made it so easy for me to put many of the quotes I have into action, even redesigning a product you already have to customize for our community. Can you do the same for others?

Words shape our lives, surround yourself with positive and you will become a more positive person. Are you aware of the science of this fact?

Intro

  • Even on an emotional level, you tend to assimilate to your environment
  • When we have anxiety, we feel like we need an immediate fix
  • Anxiety can be a barometer for what’s going on internally, so use it to help you

 

Time Sensitive Life

  • Try to clarify the type of anxiety you’re feeling - physical or emotional
  • Try these to move through your anxiety:
    • Curiosity: Ask yourself, “I’m feeling anxious! But why? What has triggered this?
    • Courage: Avoiding the discomfort makes it work. So, sit with it. Don’t run from it.
  • Anxiety is fueled by rejection
    • By rejecting it, you’re rejecting a part of yourself
  • Anxiety is your alarm bell that something is going on but pills are not the answer

 

Closing Lines

  • You can only go as deep as you’ve been yourself
  • We feel before we think

  • Doug wanted to be a reporter when he was 7 (awww)
    • Adam wanted to be Jimmy Page (rock on!)
  • When an individual is building a personal brand, he/she needs to utilize several media outlets

Direction and Magnitude of Business

    • But the bigger you get, the more you can do what you love
  • When you franchise, you do give up some control
    • You’ve got to be able to handle other people’s rules

Intro

  • Quebec is a Province in Canada, with around 7 million people in it. Dayum!
  • Brad Moore’s work involves attaching user value for up and coming apps
    • All apps target College and University, globally - Reinforcing better communication

Body

  • Ask yourself, “What’s the endgame for the user?”
  • You gotta remember that using your phone is not just talking to an electronic device but rather a network of people
  • Texting and utilizing tech products efficiently is reaching a level similar to muscle memory... Coming soon to a city near you - hoverboards and autopilot cars
  • If you put the technology before the experience, it’s self-defeating
  • Content creation on social media is the new version of a conversation - sharing interests, ideas and personalities with different mediums
    • Keep it simple

Closing Lines

  • Hard work solves everything
  • The road may change and there will be roadblocks but you just gotta keep your eyes on the end game
    • The end game justifies the journey

Intro

  • Doug found that if he writes about sex, politics or religion brings a lot of readers to his blog... Everything you shouldn’t talk about at the dinner table. Tsk, tsk.
  • People want to relate to someone as messed up as they are
  • PR people end up coaching their clients on their ideas and how they may not be news-worthy
    • Likeability needs a compelling, unique story

 

Stumbling Blocks - Blocks That Make You Stumble

  • Marketing for most people terrifying
    • It’s all about exposing yourself, on a big stage. Yikes.
    • You’ve got to be relatable, so that means showing your flaws
  • Different media outlets require different forms of expression, which leads many peeps to confusion. Ahhhh.
  • If you stay with a project/idea long enough, you will give it time to reach that next level
  • For every action, there’s a reaction
  • Most entrepreneurs are bootstrappers
  • Equity crowdfunding requires you giving up a percentage of your business

 

Closing Lines

  • If you’re not willing to interact with people, then social media will not be your strong suit

Intro

  • We think we need to have the full picture before taking the next step
    • We need to try to follow impulses a bit more, trust your gut
  • We’re constantly calculating situations and weaving fear into it
  • Take a step
    • The next step will then reveal itself

 

Curiosity? Yes.

  • We get what we settle for
  • Acknowledge the truth in your heart
    • By tapping into the truth, you’ll realize the resources you possess
  • IF we are willing to feel the pain of telling ourselves, “no” when it is actually “yes,” it will start to hurt
  • 80-90% of your fears before making a decision will never happen
  • Look at all of the places where you are lying to yourself and start, one by one, telling the truth to yourself and those affected
  • No amount of money, external validation, or success is worth losing yourself
  • We have this idea that when we follow our purpose, everything is peachy and everyone gets along
    • But there are more challenges that occur when you’re on purpose, that may be preparing you for what’s to come

Intro

  • A hypnotherapist - helps you bridge the gap between your mind and body
  • How can we make ourselves happy? Everything we need is already within us
    • Most of us are not taught how to deal with the subconscious mind
  • You’ve got to start listening to yourself

 

Your Inner Critic

  • Your inner critic is really powerful - that constant negative talk
  • People with anxiety feel like their body has been hijacked
  • Your subconscious mind is trying to speak with you all day long and help you move away from the pain
    • Anxiety is a symptom of fear itself
  • Acknowledging your anxiety is a backdoor to understanding your emotions
  • As humans, we’ll always have fear

 

Closing Lines

  • Positive thinking doesn’t work when you’re in survival mode
  • If it’s your perception, you can change it

    • Brilliant!
    • Doug is blown away by Domino’s pizza tracker feature. Blown. Away.
  • Doug’s dog is uber spoiled! He’s never been in a kennel and enjoys some salt and pepper on his chicken

  • Call Doug and talk to him every Wednesday, 5:00-6:30 PM EST at  410-340-6861. You can try him outside of that 90 minute window, but there's no guarantee that he will answer.
  • Whatever you do, DON'T call 4242-DJ Doug during that 90 minute window (or any of the other 10,010 minutes available during the week) and leave a message, because it may not work. We have no actual evidence of this, but Doug is kind of afraid of technology that he doesn't understand and given that we've been begging you all to call and there have been no messages (well there have been some, just not recently)  he has made the assumption that dozens of people have tried to call and it has failed every time. At least that's his story, and he's sticking to it, so please, whatever you do, DON'T call 4242-DJ Doug anytime day or night.

 

  • 16:10. That's how far out have to skip forward if you want to get past us arguing over the phone number. Don't worry, we won't be offended. We won't even know.
  •  So why does Starbucks charge $4.95 for a cup of coffee? Right, because they can.
  • Do you like craft beer? Call Doug at 410-340-6862 between 5:00-6:30 EST on Wednesday and tell him all about it (or you can try to leave a message at 4242-DJ-Doug ANYTIME and pray that it actually works.)
  • Strick is drinking Bulleit Rye tonight- https://www.bulleit.com/whiskey/bulleit-rye/
  • He also likes https://www.svedka.com/#!/flavors/orange-cream-pop
  • But Doug prefers https://www.titosvodka.com/
  • Tomorrow will be an interview so we can get through our backlog of interviews, so 3 interviews a week and 2 of us. Let us know what you think.

Intro

  • Strick’s business trips always seem to involve Vegas… keyword: “business”
  • Want to get in touch through Twitter? Tweet only at Doug, @djdoug

Bids, on Bids, on Bids

  • Are you driven by a task or purpose?
  • One of the biggest mistakes is that businesses take too many off-cue bids
    • All impressions are not good impressions
  • The relationship between businesses should be built before the bid takes place
    • Why? There will be more respect
  • We’ve got to be clear about who we want to be
  • Check your closing ratio. Are you wasting resources?
  • Explain, in detail, what customer you’ve got in your strike zone, a.k.a. Your focus
    • Now the right conversation needs to happen
  • Two parts to influence: the heart and the mind
    • You need to connect with the heart - the vision of the company and the drive
      • Then present your product in the context with which the company wants to go in. Boom.
  • Don’t compete, you want to create
    • Leverage your upbringing
  • Make sure that your actions support your purpose
