A Life of Ups and Downs – Wheelhouse Podcast 04
I am beyond excited to share this interview with you! It is a HUGE honor to have Tullian Tchividjian as the first guest on my podcast. I told him that he was my big fish (the one I hoped I could interview someday) and my guinea pig (my first interview). Tullian is by far one of my favorite preachers, although he doesn’t preach as much as he used to. He’s one of my favorite teachers on God’s “One-Way Love”, though he doesn’t teach as much as he used to. “Tullian is a husband, a father, an author, a speaker, a sinner, and a saint who longs to see broken people encounter God’s boundless love.” He was raised in a famous family and with a story that is straight from a movie, he speaks with a depth and humility that some people can only hope to attain. Peaks, valleys, glory, and gutters are the backdrops that Tullian speaks from. Listen, enjoy, and learn from this awesome interview with Tullian Tchividjian.

How To Find Work You Love And Then Nail The Interview – Wheelhouse Podcast 03
Everyone wants to do work they love. Everyone wants to feel fulfilled at the end of the day. No one wants to dread Monday morning on Sunday night. I know that’s what I want. Do you? In this episode of the Wheelhouse Podcast, I walk you through how to find your Wheelhouse, shake your relationship tree, and then nail the interview. HOW TO FIND YOUR WHEELHOUSE STRENGTHS Someone said, “Skills can be taught. Strengths are natural. Skills get you a job. Strengths build you a career. Skills can be forgotten. Strengths last a lifetime.“ Use tools to help determine what your strengths are. online quizzes: Myers/Briggs, StrengthsFinder, DISC pen and paper interview: ask people So, what are skills? Knowledge-based skills: Acquired from education and experience (e.g., computer skills, languages, degrees, training and technical ability). Transferable skills: Your portable skills that you take from job to job (e.g., communication and people skills, analytical problem solving and planning skills) Personal traits: Your unique qualities (e.g., dependable, flexible, friendly, hard working, expressive, formal, punctual and being a team player). Some examples of strengths you might mention include: Enthusiasm Trustworthiness Creativity Discipline Patience Respectfulness Determination Dedication Honesty Versatility PASSIONS What gets you fired up? What can you talk about or do for hours and not be drained? What do you wake up thinking about? What is it the hardest to stop thinking about so you can go to sleep? You want to learn: What motivates you? What inspires you? What excites you? What engages you? What scares you and holds you back? What do you do well naturally? What do you need to improve? What do you pretend to like but really don’t? The list you’re creating is just the first step. Truly finding your passion can only be done by doing! You have to test what you think you’re passionate about. Add your primary strengths and strongest passions together to find your wheelhouse. This may not be a process you can complete in an evening but could be a good weekend project! HOW TO NAIL THE INTERVIEW So now that you’ve discovered work that’s in your wheelhouse, you’re ready to try to get a job in the field. Now, you’ll need to nail the interview. SHAKE THE RELATIONSHIP TREE Find someone you know or someone who knows someone at the company you’d like to get an interview with. Get the person to help you connect or recommend you. Make a personal connection. In 2016, a survey stated that 85% of All Jobs are Filled Via Networking. Shake the tree! Play “7 Degrees of Kevin Bacon.” TIPS Spend a few hours learning everything you can about the company—from as many sources as you can. Google, Glassdoor, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. Google typical interview questions. Different firms use different types of interviews, so ask what you’ll be faced with. For example, some companies will ask case questions or brain teasers while others will give a standard set of typical interview and leadership questions. Asking the recruiter or HR contact about the interview format ahead of time is totally fair game. And once you know, investing time to become familiar with this style can make a huge difference. Have an answer to “tell me about yourself” ready to go. Interviewers always ask it, and you want to be sure to nail this first part of the interview. Don’t be thrown off by the classic, “What’s your biggest weakness?” One foolproof method: Think of something that you struggle with but that you’re working to improve. For example, maybe you’ve never been strong at public speaking, but over the past few years, you’ve taken on leadership roles and volunteered to run meetings to help you be more comfortable when addressing a crowd. Be on time, and that means early. Plan the perfect interview outfit. For companies that have a business or business-casual dress code keep your look basic and conservative for the first interview. Not sure what to wear? If you have a contact or friend who works at the company you’re interviewing with, see if he or she can give you a heads up as to what people wear. If you don’t have that luxury, hang out at a coffee shop across the street a day or two before, and try to get a glimpse at what people are wearing. It never hurts to be overdressed. But that doesn’t mean cocktail dresses or a tux. Have at least 1, but no more than 3, questions for your interviewer. These questions can be job clarifying, department clarifying, or general questions about the company. Try to stay calm. They know you’re probably nervous, and odds are they are nervous as well. In his book, The Ideal Team Player, Pat Lencioni lays out 3 qualities of a great member of a team. HUMBLE Humble team members are quick to point out the contributions of others and slow to seek attention for their own. They share credit, emphasize team over self and define success collectively rather than individually. HUNGRY Hungry team members are self-motivated and diligent. They are constantly thinking about the next step and the next opportunity. SMART Smart team members are interpersonally appropriate and aware. They have good judgment and intuition around the subtleties of group dynamics and the impact of their words and actions.

How To Market on Facebook, YouTube, and Deal with Addiction – Wheelhouse Podcast 02
Everyone needs some how-to advice sometimes. I know I do. In this episode, I start handing out advice to those that reached out to me. This advice covers serval topics. I have so much fun doing this! I really hope the advice in this episodes helps you as well! DISCLAIMER: I’m not a trained professional. I do have lots of resources. I am giving the same advice I’d give a friend in my living room. Why I’m doing these Help people find work that they love Help people advertise/market the work they love effectively How to contact me for advice Facebook Messenger Email – bobbyshirley.com/advice Leave me a voicemail – 256-978-9757 Stories Daniel (last name withheld) emailed me stating that he’s going to be a financial consultant after going through Dave Ramsey‘s Financial coaching course and is in an area that has a lot of military service members and wondering what may be the best way to market his services. Facebook. Facebook. Facebook. Facebook is the ground-floor for marketing. If you have a business or service, you need to have a business Facebook page. A basic website. You need a space on the web that you can send people to for information. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive, but it must look professional. A business email address. It doesn’t look very professional to send people to an @aol.com or @gmail.com email address. Typically, the email address comes with the domain name for the website. I asked him to answer these questions for his own clarity: Do you have a unique perspective on personal finance? Are you confident your insights can help change the world or at least the financial world for the people you serve? He told me that his father-in-law is a retired service member. I said that he consult with him to see what types of financial issues that the average military personnel needs help with. Using this information to know how to market to them. Perhaps offering a free financial assessment that would lead to more services that he do and charge money for. Shelly McWilliams messaged me on FB wanting to know how to market her YouTube channel and connect with her viewers better. She also wants to make sure that she is creating content that is relatable and makes an impact. She has a great story of trying to find her birth mother in Seoul Korea. Half My Seoul YouTube I suggested that she should have an email list to collect email addresses and then be able to reach out that way. Offer an email lead magnet, something for free, for signing up. I suggested that the best way to be able to create relatable/impactful content might be to ask. Create a video that says “I want to create content that helps, what would help you?“ The number one goal of any business to serve the customer the best. Optimize your YouTube content so it’s searchable – Keyword in the title, meta description, and an image file. Create good titles – keep it simple, do keyword research, encourage viewers to watch Create clear and compelling Youtube thumbnails – Close-ups of faces Text overlays Brightly colored backgrounds Tasteful branding (a small logo or watermark in the corner of the image) Contrast and outlines (around people or objects) Make sure all your profile info is filled out. Anonymous contacted me about dealing with someone who is dealing with addiction. She’s been connected to this person for a long time. In a platonic friendship and as boyfriend/girlfriend. He’s let her know that he needs help with overcoming addiction. She’s let him know that she’s there for him. I’ve not dealt with this in my personal life. But I do know of some resources. Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud Keep Your Love On by Danny Silk Love him from a distance. Don’t separate from him, but realize that some space is needed. Don’t work on his freedom harder than he is. Don’t burn your end of the bridge. Keep in mind that this is going to be a long haul process. Addiction is a super hard thing to overcome, no matter the type of addiction. Pray for him.
