It’s impossible to be mindful when you’re putting in eighty hours a week or seventy hours a week like so many of those frustrated entrepreneurs we know.” – Benjamin Berman, (10:42) 


Without that central map to guide the internal processes, and without the marketing and the sales materials tying back to that journey and that central map that says ‘this is our central source of truth of what’s happening,’ you’re really missing an opportunity to get people aligned, get people interested, and get people fully through, over and over again.” – Benjamin Berman, (21:33)


Yes, profit is important. Yes, getting a return on a shareholder investment is important. The best way to do that is to pay attention to the relationships, to the community, to what people want and how they want to go about it, and to have great management, great bosses all the way down. And when we do that, we’re changing the way that businesses run today.” – Will Crist, (30:34)

If you look at us and watch us walk around—those who are living the EOS Life and those who are helping others live the EOS Life—we just can’t stop smiling.” – Benjamin Berman, (38:00)

Have you ever heard the phrase it’s not what you know but who you know?

Posted in charities, non-profits on October 25, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

“It’s not what you know but who you know,” was certainly true for 10-year pancreatic survivor Thom Mrozek.  Thom wasn’t sure how public he wanted to be about his diagnosis, but when his daughter, who at that time attended an episcopal school asked at Chapel “can we pray for my dad?” her request started the ball rolling.
Thom woke up one morning with a recurring pain that went on for a few days.  The pain became worse, and he took himself to urgent care.  The location of his pain caused the urgent care Dr to check his heart.  His heart looked good, and the Dr felt it was a stomach problem probably an ulcer or acid reflux. He was given some medicine and told to follow up with his Primary Care doctor.  Thom went to his internist who ordered a series of tests.  Thom, standing in front of his office received a phone call from his Dr “Thom it’s your pancreas, stop eating!” that comment lead to a “six-week testing treadmill.”
Watch or listen to Thom’s inspirational journey and how a prayer request led to a community of support for Thom and his family.
“As long as you speak my name, I shall live forever.” This episode is dedicated to Lupe Romero

Ep. 36: How to Turn Your TED Talk into a Book

Posted in book publishing, Business on October 24, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

Is turning a speech into a book a good idea?

“Content remains king and everyone’s making all the things and doing all the speeches and giving all the talks and teaching all the courses, but they still love the idea of it being a book because that provides some ethos building and some validity because I have a book.”

We are book nerds, so we are really interested in the recent trial to block Penguin Random House’s acquisition of Simon and Schuster. So much so, that we purchased the ebook version of the transcripts of the trial by Publishers Lunch, and boy it was a lot of information to process. The document is huge and not fancy in its presentation. This led us to wonder if you can turn anything into a book.

Listen in as Jen and Vanessa talk about all the different ways you could repurpose content, like a speech, webinar, or course, into a book. We also discuss how the the framework is that you have to be careful with the content and make sure it is not just a transcription of the speech. And making sure that the book is associated with the speech, but not the exact same thing.
