86: A Multi-Level Marketing survivor tells all
David Pride was sponsored into a multi-level marketing organization at the tender age of just 15 years old. By the time he was 16, they realized he was a naturally gifted speaker on stage. Over the next three years he would recruit over 150 people into the company. He would spend a total of 13 years dedicating all his spare time to his new family before he realized he needed to get out. It took him an additional three years of therapy to de-program his brain after he left. For the first time ever, he shares his story. How he got in. How much he made (it will shock you). And how he got out.

85: How a securities dealership's structure impacts financial advice
Founding and managing partner of Aligned Capital Partners, Christopher Enright, joins the podcast to discuss a bit about how the dealership platform an advisor uses can impact advice. With consumer preferences for how they pay for advice and products ever evolving, it's possible that some dealerships are not keeping up with those changing preferences. Inside the industry, it certainly feels like there is a small wave of change happening right now with respect to developing and deploying newer technology at the dealership level, and more flexibility with compensation options that advisors can offer. Chris helps explain why some of these changes seem to take a while, what's happening on the ground, and his vision for "bionic advisors" who can embrace technology instead of battling it.

84: Human Trafficking Survivor turned Financial Crimes Consultant Timea Nagy
Human trafficking survivor, author, speaker and social advocate, Timea Nagy, immigrated to Canada in 1998. Her nightmare unfolded in Toronto in that same year after arriving from Budapest, Hungary in the hopes of finding meaningful employment. The daughter of a Hungarian policewoman, Timea was held (For three terrifying months) at the hands of traffickers and was forced to work in the sex industry. Thankfully, she escaped and started life anew. Ten years later, Ms. Nagy founded ‘Walk with Me’, a non-profit organization to assist victims of human trafficking and law enforcement agencies.I met Timea at a conference where I was the MC. When Timea was interviewed on stage, you could hear a pin drop in the crowd. Everyone was captivated, and mortified, by her story. She detailed exactly how she ended up a victim, and more importantly how she now aids law enforcement agencies and financial institutions in detecting similar crimes by looking at financial transactions.

In this episode, I spoke to Dr. Liane Davey about how conflict should be embraced, not avoided, as long as you do it the right way.

Liane Davey is a New York Times Bestselling author, keynote speaker, consultant, and regular contributor to Harvard Business Review for her expertise on increasing productivity, enhancing engagement, developing leaders, and as one client put it, “dealing with the damn drama!”"Conflict is unpleasant, but the more you try to avoid it, the worse it becomes. Eventually, unresolved conflict stalls productivity, erodes trust, and causes stress." - Liane Davey
