Gold Nuggets in this Episode:

  • Many entrepreneurs think that because they haven’t been to college that they can’t be successful. It’s the grit and the belief more than anything else that will get you to where you want to be.

    David facilitates executive teams with his HSDO (High School Drop Out) designation.

  • David isn’t interested in studying your competitors and understanding what they’re doing.

    “When you’re going in to help a client, you don’t care what their competitors are doing.”

  • The fundamental flaw in the branding industry is that they think you know who you are, and you think they’ll figure you out. Neither of those are true.

  • It’s important for business owners to reflect on their core values. When you leave your beliefs out of the business, you’re leaving yourself out, and you’re on your way to being a commodity.

    “Every product that you make, and everything you do, is a deep reflection of your values.”

  • The mistake people make is they listen to people who are ahead of them, and they start adopting traits from other people that don’t natively exist within themselves.

    “What do you do that nobody else can do?”

  • Steve says Juliet is an awesome co-host because he forgot to ask David a question.

  • “If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to gather wood, divide the work, and give out orders; instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Our guest is David Anthony Childs, Living Blueprint’s integrative thinker and lead facilitator, and co-author of Monster: Your Billion Dollar Ideology. David helps companies realize their vision by focusing on their core values and fostering meaningful connections with their target audience.
