Episode #9 The Innovation Formula
In order to stay relevant, meaningful and effective in today’s overcrowded and highly competitive market, you must be willing to innovate. But what exactly does “innovate” mean? And, how do we go about innovating? What’s the formula? Many books and articles have been written on the subject of innovation. There are people throughout history who seem to have a knack for innovation. They seem to hit the market at precisely the correct time with their new idea or invention. They are the creative ones who have all the great ideas. But, is it really perfect timing and creativity, or did these innovators understand their business, the market, the customer and the needs of humanity more than the average person? If you truly want to innovate, this is a very good place to start! Welcome to SuccessCast and "The Innovation Formula."

Episode #7 Perceptual Reality
One of the "realities" I've discovered through the years of business ownership, consulting and speaking, is that the customer rarely sees you as YOU see you. This is known as "Perceptual Reality." In his book Magical Worlds of the Wizard of Ads, Roy H. Williams defines Perceptual Reality as our imagination. We spend a great deal of time there, and while there, we create ideas and perceptions of ourselves that simply are not true or real. We begin to think we're better than we are and we are convinced our service is better than it actually is. Listen to this eye-opening podcast and learn to reaquaint yourself with your real self, by putting yourself in your customers shoes and looking at yourself from their perspective. You'll be amazed and very pleased at the solutions you come up with to create a better culture and a better you. This is a business podcast for leaders, salespeople, managers, and anyone who wants to create a sustainably successful brand.
