This is the first podcast of the Motivated C19 series where co-hosts Dalia Strum, Founder of RethinkConnect and Pablo Henderson, VP of Marketing at Equinox Hotels feature guests who are inspiring others and are working on initiatives that embrace motivation. They are focused on connecting with thought leaders and industry experts where they discuss what they’re working on, some of the strategies they’ve deployed during this time, how they’ve shifted their mindset and most importantly how they’re keeping themselves as well as the people around them motivated. This episode featured Nate Checketts, the founder of Rhone where they discussed the Brands x better initiative that he launched and the criteria for brands to get involved. He learned early on that "the cheerleader approach" wasn’t the right approach. “By giving a false sense of optimism, then I lose credibility as a leader.” They had to make changes and adapt based on the current state of affairs. His immediate response was "sitting back and waiting for someone else to solve these problems forces us to give up the ability to do good." They needed to come from a place of “We got this. Let’s lock arms and find ways to lean on each other” We discussed Stephen Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People where relationships are like emotional bank accounts. You make deposits and you make withdrawals. "My hope is that I made enough deposits into our collective emotional bank accounts that it would keep our relationship balance in the positive." He left us with a few challenges: Do your own self analysis. Think about what motivates you.  Write down a list of your favorite moments that have happened in your life and when you’re feeling down, pull out that list and think about how it lifts you “life’s greatest moments list” Get to bed early (not 8 hours of sleep) early to bed and early to rise Remember to smile, tell your body to show you’re happy Find a small piece of poetry and memorize it. When I’m having a difficult moment, those words come into my mind. The content you choose to put into your brain will be with you when you’re challenged.  Pick a poem that you love and spend time memorizing it and let those words sink into your mind.

This podcast is a great example of why I love going to live events. It gave us an opportunity to catch up with Paul Cowan who is the VP of Enterprise and SMB Marketing at Shutterstock. He was also one of my panelists at #DMWF Digital Marketing Conference at the Javits Center in November 2018. Shutterstock recently recreated the infamous Fyre Festival ad using its own stock footage as part of its new global campaign "It's Not Stock."  The founders of the festival focused heavily on marketing, spending a lot of money on content creation and visuals (including creating their own clips for the promo video) While Fyre Festival spent hundreds of thousands to create their video collateral, Shuttershock CMO Lou Weiss said the clip, which was a compilation of 18 different bits of footage licensed through Shuttershock, cost just $2062 to create.
