Show Notes

I've been pondering a quote lately from my favorite Dostoevsky book, The Brothers Karamazov, which reads, "we ought to treat everyone like little children, and most importantly ourselves."

It got me thinking about the way we are with our children - how loving, patient, lighthearted and encouraging we are when we're parenting these tiny little humans. Why can't we be this way with everyone in our lives, especially ourselves? How incredible would the world be if we could remember to treat one another with this same level of tenderness and also extend this grace inwardly to ourselves?

051: Do your work in public

In this episode, I talk about our podcast, and why it's so different from the content we've created in the past. Most of these episodes are unstructured conversations and explorations of random themes of my life—there are no actionable takeaways, no bitesized nuggets of wisdom, and oftentimes no answers to the questions we pose. And at the same time—it's the most honest content we've ever created, the stories are more real, and while it often doesn't lead to a clean, neat work product, we're on our path to building a beautiful body of work, and it's a labor of love.

153: How to Do the Work - I’m Overwhelming Everything Right Now

I recently came back to a book I read many years ago called Loving What Is by Byron Katie. She has a really great self-inquiry method called The Work that I’ve been putting into practice daily for the last couple of weeks. It’s a very simple 4-question framework that is so practical and pragmatic that anyone can do it. In this episode I’m breaking down this method, the inner truths I've learned about myself and the lasting positive impacts it’s had on me in just the last 2 weeks.    Shownotes: https://steliefti.com/ep153 Connect with me: https://steliefti.com  https://twitter.com/steli  https://www.linkedin.com/in/steliefti/  ...

010: When a Sales Prospect Goes Silent, and You Don’t Know Why... Do This!

Have you ever been in the middle of negotiating a deal, trying to close a contract, and then something stalled the deal—but you didn’t know exactly what? Maybe the client has gone quiet and is unresponsive even after you’ve followed up multiple times already. And you’re starting to get worried. Has this deal fallen apart? What should you do next? I’m going to be candid with you: You messed up. You shouldn’t have let things get to this point in the first place. And I know exactly how it happened.

Fortunately, there’s a pretty simple solution to help you never end up in this situation again. That’s what I share in this episode of the podcast. ...
