Our Mindsets Matter in EVERY Area of Our Life We often talk about mindsets. The research has been clear that you can have a "fixed" or "growth" mindset, an "closed" or "open" mindset, and the one that gets very little attention is "prevention" versus "promotion/abundance" mindset. This mindset seems to be especially true when we start talking about money and finances. Quite often when we talk about money so many people are focused on what they will lose rather that what they can gain. Is there a way to change our "money mindset". Well, on this episode of A New Direction International Best Selling Author and Entrepreneur Victoria Rader takes into 35 universal laws that you can start applying right now to reset your mind, take actions, control your emotions, and tap into your spiritual self to reset your relationship with yourself, others,  and your money and finances. Her book Prosper mE The 35 Universal Laws to Make Money Work for You really will push your mindset to think about everything you are doing to grow your relationship with every aspect of your life, your relationships and your relationship with  money, and living a more abundant/promotional life.  You can learn more about Victoria and her work at www.manifestmiracles.me Please reach out and thank the sponsors of A New Direction!

Your brain and you are not in Sync when it comes to the Remote work space. Since the beginning of the pandemic we are doing far more remote meetings. In fact our workplace is some hybrid of digital. It's a paradox really because even though we are more connected in these digitally  environments e.g. ZOOM, the fact is we are more disconnected than ever.  The fact is you and your brain are not connecting the dots.  You may think your fine working remotely, but your brain is actually is telling your body something completely different.  We are made for connection with other people.  Face to face conversations trigger happy chemicals in our brain, like oxytocin and dopamine.   But in the remote environment that does not happen.  What is more in these digital environments our brain must work harder.   Here is the conundrum, our brain needs appropriate stimuli to make sense of our environment. In remote meetings we lack so much of the stimuli that helps us get clarity on our environment. On this episode of A New Direction NYU Professor of Management Communication Dr. Diane Lennard helps us understand what is really going on with our brain in these environments, and why we our brain struggles in remote environments.  She then  offers several practical and well researched suggestions how you can improve your physical, mental, emotional, relational, occupational and spiritual well being for yourself and your remote meetings.  Listen for some of these remote killers: Exhaustion, Detachment, and Feeling less productive and efficient. Let's be honest the remote world is here to stay. This show will help you better navigate the remote work place. Dr. Diane Lennard and Dr. Amy Mednick book "Humanizing the Remote Experience through Leadership and Coaching: Strategies for Better Virtual Connections" is one of the most scientifically well researched books on the topic of how our brain and body respond in remote environments.  What our brain and body go through that make the remote environment so taxing and methods to help bring your mind and body into homeostasis.  The fact is remote work triggers within us stress that we are completely unaware of.  It affects us in so many ways that you may be more exhausted than you know, and sleep is not helping.  This book is amazing, and it is literally for anyone.

When it comes to leadership we often focus on "leadership" skills. That sounds good, but that is nothing more than horizontal development. Focusing on those skills is like adding more programs to your computer and expecting it to run faster and more efficiently. The fact is if you want your computer to run faster and more efficiently you need to upgrade the operating system. The same is true of leadership, if you want to be better at making better decisions you don't need more skills, you need an upgrade to your mind. On this episode of A New Direction Dr. Ryan Gottfredson joins us again to discuss how leaders can level up their leadership through vertical development. How to upgrade the operating system in your mind to become an Elevated Leader your team and your company always desired you to be. Ryan Gottfredson's book The Elevated Leader: Level Up Your Leadership Through Vertical Development delves into the areas of leadership development that no book I have read has ever ventured into.  The fact of the matter is digging into our operating system, the mind, the will, the emotions and the mind/body connection is relatively new in the literature.  The truth however lies in the fact that you can get all the leadership training in the world, but if you are dealing with your errors of your mindsets, and your own stuff, you will stay stuck.  One of the most fascinating and impactful part of The Elevated Leader is Dr. Gottfredson's work and insight into how trauma can stunt our development.  The fact is most of us experience trauma, but either we deny it, ignore it, or suppress it, but the fact remains, it is our trauma that will keep up from our development.  We all need to take a closer look at it.  The book is absolutely so powerful.  Please take a look at the FREE assessments that Dr. Gottfredson offers on his website they are truly insightful.  Click on this link right here or go to:  ryangottfredson.com/resources/#assessments Please thank the sponsors of A New Direction for their support of the show.  It is because of their financial support we can continue to bring you the best guests and a quality program.

Risk is not something we spend much time talking about in public circles. Sure, your typical financial advisor may talk about your risk tolerance, but when it comes to life risk, business risk, or career risk, we do not spend very much time discussing it. For many of us we grew up in families where they did not take much risk. They feared that risk would lead to loss. However, risk can also be rewarded. Especially if we understand it and know how to manage it. The truth is every single day you are alive you are at risk. The question is are you in control of your risk or are you letting circumstances dictate your risk. On this episode of A New Direction Retired Marine Angie Morgan rejoins us to talk about her new book entitled "Bet on You". Angie is going to take us through how if you take risk in the right way, bet on your gifts, talents, and abilities that your risk is going to lead to reward...and that reward is the life that you dreamed of, and achieving the success you imagined. Bet on You: How to Win with Risk Book - Angie Morgan - A New Direction with Jay Izso Bet on You: How to Win with Risk is a mental, emotional, and spiritual journey into our psyche when it comes to risk.  Each chapter is filled with thought provoking ideas and practical tools to help you embrace risk and achieve greater success than you are right now.  Angie Morgan and Courtney Lynch have written a must read in Bet on You.  And when you consider all the things you could bet on, you are your best investment with the greatest return.  Learn to turn your risks into rewards...Bet on You!

We are all public speakers.  Maybe you don't see yourself as a public speaker, but the truth of the matter is if you are doing business with anyone you are a public speaker.  Do you answer a phone? Then you are a public speaker.  Do you sell something?  Then you are doing public speaking.  Perhaps you are one of those people who desire to become a professional public speaker. Maybe the place that you work puts you in a position where you must speak publicly. Or maybe you are a public speaker but you want to get more paid speaking opportunities. Public speaking can be a great career, and can also be a great additional income to your career. However, for most people they are afraid to speak in public. In fact, research has shown that speaking in public is one of the most fearful things that people can do. How do you overcome the fear and become an effective, captivating public speaker? Well thanks to professional speaker and speaking coach Peter George he will help you get through the fear, and debunk the the public speaking myths on this episode of A New Direction. Peter George's book, The Captivating Public Speaker, is excellent.  It is the most complete book on public speaking I have read.  It is a no nonsense, this is how to be an effective, memorable, wanting you to come back for more book on public speaking to any audience.  His AMP'D method is simply and sophisticated when comes to help you make a difference when speaking to any audience, whether that is an audience of one, or ten thousand one.  If you will follow Peter's instruction I will promise you, you will become The Captivating Public Speaker You had inside of you!

One of the greatest gifts we can give our employees is recognize them for what they do for your company. But you want to do it right.  That year end recognition ceremony where you hand out the plaques is just not working.  So what kind of recognition works?  And how can you as a business owner, CEO, or manager get ROI from your recognition programs?  Then we have another problem...today in most companies we have a multi-generational workforce. And each generation has a different idea about what appropriate recognition is. Which also leads us to how do you sell your product or service to different generations.  And since you probably have a multi-generational sales force how do  you lead them? In this episode of A New Direction Senior Vice President of Madison Performance Group Judd Weisgal, who sells, develops and implements recognition programs to Fortune 500 companies, helps understand how to recognize and incentive employees, and gives his insights on how to sell to corporations and individuals.  He also gives his insights into understanding how to recognize and incentive multi-generational teams.  And in the last segment Judd give his expert advice on how to a lead multi-generational sales team.  Powerfully insightful show!

Are you struggling financially? Do want to be more financially successful?  It doesn't seem to matter how much money you make or don't make your financial well being is always of concern. However, it seems more people are concerned about having enough money. For many, they worry about money. They worry about paying the bills, taking care of their family, getting to do the things they want to do, or even retire. What if your money problems could be solved by changing your mindset? What if you could discover the things that are holding you back that are keeping you from being financially successful? In this episode of A New Direction, Film producer, International Investor, and Wealth Advisor to Celebrities and Professional Athletes Erik Weir joins me to talk about how to put you on the transformational path to financial success from his book "Who's Eating Your Pie? This is perhaps one of the best books on financial transformation I have ever read. Erik Weir's Who's Eating Your Pie is more than a book on building financial wealth, it is building wealth of living a better life.  Building a personal life, building your significant relationship, building a more fit physical you, building your faith, and so much more!  The fact is the biggest culprit Who's Eating Your Pie is YOU!  Your mindsets, your decisions, you control how wealthy you are going to be in any area of your life.  Don't blame the world, don't blame your circumstances, get control of your life, get control of your self-sabotage, get control of your self-talk and build the wealth you could always have built and were meant to build.

There are different perspectives on what "work" is and what it "should" be. Some people will say that you "go to work, you don't go to fun", but that simply is not true any more. Today we all go to work trying to be in an environment where we can use our talents, gifts, abillties and knowledge, have a sense of fulfillment, and at the same time be able to adequately provide for our family and ourselves. However, as we all know we get that career job, and it doesn't turn out the way we had hoped. In fact, it seems as if our work is taking more work than it is worth. What is more, all those promises that you were told, like how you were going to move up quickly in the company have been all but dashed because you were passed up...again...for someone else. This breeds discouragement and dissilusionment when it comes to work. Well in this episode of A New Direction Career Coach Extraordinaire, Terry Boyle McDougall helps you understand that if you are going to play in the game of work, part of the problem is you are playing by the wrong rules. As Terry says, "it's like your work is play by the rule of  Monopoly, but you are playing by the rules are Twister". From her best selling book "Winning the Game of Work".

There are many books that will talk about how to increase revenue. But few focus on small to medium size service -based businesses. Even fewer can gaurantee it and use math to prove it? Well on this episode of A New Direction Michael Buzinski founder and CEO of BuzzBizz Media joins us to fulfill his promise that if you follow "The Rule of 26" and achieve its 3 objectives, you will double your website revenue. Let me ask you this if you could watch or listen to a show that could help you double your revenue from your website, and it was free...would you do it? Michael Buziniski, or "Buzz" as he is often called book, "The Rule of 26: For Service Based Businesses: 3 Steps to Doubling Your Website Revenue" is a no nonsense, no fluff book that will help every small to medium size business website double it's revenue.  So you are asking, what is "The Rule of 26"?  Well simply put it starts with knowing three Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), Unique Visitors, Conversion Rate and Average Revenue Per Client (ARPC).  Where does 26 come in...really simple if you increase each of those areas by 26% you will double your website revenue.  Don't think it applyes to you?  Think again, your website is the one employee that works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, takes no holidays and requires no insurance...it should be at the top of your investment list.

Today was "Ask Coach Jay Day".  Complete transparency we had a glitch with the original guest and rather than do nothing we decided to have a show where people could write in their questions live.  So on this episode of A New Direction...we truly took A New Direction.  The show started with talking about how to find your natural God given gifts and how that can lead to a purpose.  Then our first question came from a viewer and listener who wanted to know how you get out of a rut in your life.  The final question we answered was from a viewer and a listener who wanted to know how do you fight for your dreams when you have health issues.  And the end of it all we learn three things we are always in control of...our attitude, our effort, and our perseveverance.  Let us know if you like ths show and if you would like to hear more "Ask Coach Jay" shows in the future.

Why can't we all just get along? As the generations work in the same space, the differences seem to be magnified. The lines have been drawn. Everything seems to be black and white with no gray area. If you are a "baby boomer" chances are you find the millennials and Gen Z generations frustrating, perhaps seeing them as entitled, lazy, or arrogant. If you are Gen X like me, it's all about independence, we find the "baby boomers" closed minded and controlling. If you are a milennial you want to collaborate and not be left out, you want balance, and find meaning and purpose. If you are a Gen Z when it comes to work you want to know, "What's in it for me". Let's open our minds for a minute. The fact is we were all raised in different era's. The way we were raised was completely different from each other. Each generation speaks a different language. There are technological differences, the speed of information differences, and more...the truth is no generation is right...we are just different, and that's where we need to start. On this episode of A New Direction we have with us generational expert Chris De Santis talking about his amazing and insightful book: "Why I Find Your Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work". Chris De Santis book "Why I Find You Irritating: Navigating Generational Friction at Work" is an eye opening and revealing look at how the different generations came to be, and how they view working in today's workforce.  The book examines how we have come to have the biased views we have of each generation and the Chris gives us ways to help combat those biases and treat each generation as they were meant to be treated by giving us some skill training in both our behavior and mindset when it comes to the different generations.  The book is a must read for every CEO, Owner, Founder, Entrepreneur, Manager, and employee.  You will come to understand when it comes to generations.  "Why I Find You So Irritating".

Are you as successful as you want to be in your life? How about your business? How about your career? Research has demonstrated that how you think determines the level of success regardless of how you define it, that you can achieve. Researcher and Best Selling Author Dr. Ryan Gottfredson joins us again on this episode of A New Direction to dig deeper into the four mindets that can create success or can kill it.  The sad truth is that most of us are in complete denial about our mindsets, believing we are better than we truly are... Dr. Gottfredson sheds light on four mindsets from his book "Success Mindsets". Think of them on a continuum. The four mindsets are: Growth or Fixed Mindsets Open or Closed Mindsets Promotion or Prevention Mindsets Outward or Inward Mindsets Ryan Gottfredson's book, Success Mindsets: Your Keys to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work, & Leadership is an absolute deep dive into our mindsets and how they affect our life, our work, our behavior, and our success.  As we take a deeper dive into the book we must come to realize that our own upbringing has influenced much of our mindsets, and that they are most often not serving us well, not to mention they do not serve others at all.  Success Mindsets is a perfect book for you, your team, and your clients.  If you would like to take the Success Mindsets Assessment go to:  www.ryangottfredson.com/successmindsets Please reach out and say thank you to the financial partners of A New Direction Show: EPIC Physical Therapy from every day aches and pains, to injuries to keeping elite athletes at the top of their game, EPIC pt has the cutting edge equipment and the certified staff to create an individualized treatment program specifically for you.  They are my physical therapists and I think they should be yours too.  So if you want EPIC Relief, EPIC Recovery, and EPIC Results.  Start by contacting the great people at EPIC Physical Therapy….www.EPICpt.com Linda Craft & Team, Realtors for 35 years they have been known for having “Legendary Customer Service”.  Unaffiliated and independently owned and operated they can recommend the best real estate professional to help you sell your home or buy your next home anywhere in the world.  That is because they are not attached to a company they are attached to what is in your best interest.  So before you buy or sell start with the “Legends” at Linda Craft & Team.  Just click on over to www.LindaCraft.com
So often we wonder why we do not get the results we are looking for. We will typically blame a person or group of people for our failures and mistakes. If you are leading a team you will frequently be tempted to follow the addage of "fire fast and hire slow". But are these really problems that are beyond your control or problems that you could control if your mindset was different? The problem is we get into denial believe that we have the right mindsets. If I were to ask you right now do you have a "closed" or "open" mindset you would undoubtedly say "open". Yet your behavior says, "closed", your team may even say "closed". That's because we don't know our mindsets well and what it would take to truly change them. Fortunately, on this episode of A New Direction Best Selling Author Dr. Ryan Gottfredson walks us through the four mindsets and how by changing them we can become more successful in every area of our life. Ryan Gottfredson's book: Success Mindsets:  Your Keys to Unlocking Greater Success in Your Life, Work & Leadership is one of the most eye opening, life changing books I have ever read.  If you take this book seriously it will change you, your work, the way you lead, and ultimately the way you live your life.  In Success Mindsets Ryan Gottfredson focuses on four primary mindsets.  "Growth vs Fixed Mindsets", "Open vs. Closed Mindsets", "Promotion vs. Prevention Mindsets", and "Outward vs. Inward Mindsets".  As he takes you on a deeper dive of each one, there will undoubtably come a point where you see yourself along the contiuum of each.  In fact, if you would like to evaluate yourself in each of these mindsets.  Ryan Gottfredson will let you take his assessment for free by clicking on ryangottfredson.com/successmindsets  Truly a life changing book!

Did you know that according to Gallup only 36% of employees are actually engaged in their work? That means basically 2 out 3 employees just do a job without having a purpose. We currently live in an era of "Quiet Quitting"...just doing enough to not get fired. Why? Becaue they cannot find a purpose in their work.  What does that mean to you and your business? What lack of employee engagement and purpose means is less productivity, lower morale, fewer innovative ideas, and ultimately less profit. So what can you do increase employee engagement? Help them find their purpose.  How? There is an answer. And on this episode of A New Direction best selling author Steve Curtin ( "Delight Your Customers") raises your employee engagement by aligning their work purpose with your company values and with some one-on-one converstations known as the "The Revelation Conversation" Steve Curtin author of the best selling book "Delight Your Customers" has a brand new eye opening book for every business entitled, "The Revelation Conversation: Inspire Greater Employee Engagement by Connecting to Purpose".  What makes this book such a game changer is that finally help the employee connect to a "work purpose".  Why does their work matter?  How does their work truly make an impact?  What brings meaning to their work?  Just think about it if your employees knew the answers to those questions what would you see happen in your business...one thing is for sure...you wouldn't worry about "quiet quitting", and you find yourself in the most profitable position you have ever been in.
