Have you ever been to a "networking" event, collected tons of business cards —and then couldn't wait to take a shower?

We've all been there, and let's be real here:

90% of "networking" events are a colossal waste of time, energy and effort.

They are usually a pitchfest for some insurance or home repair services you're never going to use.

But what about connecting?

Enter my latest guest, David Burkus —one of the world's leading business thinkers. David's forward-thinking ideas and bestselling books are changing how companies approach innovation, collaboration, and productivity.

As a skilled researcher and inspiring communicator, Burkus is one of the foremost minds shaping the future of business. His award winning books have been translated into more than a dozen languages, and his TED Talk has been viewed over 2 million times.

His books include Friend of a Friend: Understanding the Hidden Networks That Can Transform Your Life and Your Career, Pick a Fight: How Great Teams Find a Purpose Worth Rallying Around and several more.

In this episode, you're going to learn why the old ideas and ways of networking are no longer "working", how to be creative and stand out, why COVID-19 can be a chance to re-connect with amazing people, how to harness technology the right way and tons more.

Ep. 169 | David Burkus Quotes

“Time away from work makes work better.” - David Burkus

"Delete the social media apps from your phone." - David Burkus

"This is a hard truth for some to accept: that a lack of resources may not be their true constraint, just a lack of resourcefulness.” - David Burkus

You're not conventional, so why are you comparing yourself to those who are?

Here's the truth:

I may look put together but for most of my life I’ve been a misfit, a rebel, told I would never succeed —always feeling lost.

Which means an unconventional path wasn’t some moment of inspiration —it was all I had.

Today I wanted to share the biggest lessons I’ve learned from a decade in choosing an unconventional path and helping others do the same:

An unconventional life.

An unconventional business.

An unconventional purpose and passion.

To quote Joseph Campbell:

"If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it's not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That's why it's your path.”

You're going to love this deep dive into the biggest lessons you can use today to remind you that you are carving a path that is yours, not someone else's!

Mastery.

This is what comes up when I think of the latest guest on the Academy podcast —the one and only Robert Greene. 

This episode is a total pleasure for me, as I've looked up to Robert's work for nearly a decade.

Robert Greene is the author of the New York Times bestsellers The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction, The 33 Strategies of War, The 50th Law, and Mastery.

In his highly anticipated sixth book, The Laws of Human Nature, he turns to the most important subject of all – understanding people’s drives and motivations, even when they are unconscious of them themselves.

This episode was filmed during quarantine, but it was still incredibly special and you're going to discover how to find your purpose, the myths that keep people stuck on the path of mastery, why acquiring skills and mentorship is non-negotiable and much, much more.

Success, identity, ego, achievement and fulfillment.

All of these require self-awareness; a skill that is essential in everyday life.

For example:

  • How do you stay in alignment with your true desires when you experience success or failure?
  • How do you seek excellence in a part of your life while leaving enough space for other priorities?
  • How do you get clear on what really matters and most importantly, check in with yourself?

Enter the latest Academy guest —Gabby Reece. Gabby is not only a volleyball legend, but an inspirational leader, New York Times bestselling author, wife, and mother. The former professional beach volleyball player and Nike’s first female spokeswoman is the definition of both athleticism and beauty.

She has done it all, literally, and I had the pleasure of having a deep conversation with her on the inside game of growth, success and fulfillment.

Your biggest obstacle in the way of your success, your next level of financial growth, the dreams, desires and ambitions you have is yourself.

(Catch the full video episode on YouTube here.)

Sounds crazy, right?

But we so often are on a path of growth, doing the right things —and then we get in our own way:

  • We self sabotage when we're on a roll.
  • We don't allow ourselves to feel good now.
  • We create drama that isn't even necessary.

I've been there, and it's no way to live.

But is there another way? Enter the latest Resist Average Academy guest, Dave Hollis —Husband. Father. Business owner. Bronco enthusiast. And for the very first time this Spring, published author of Get Out of Your Own Way: A Skeptic's Guide to Growth and Fulfillment.

Dave Hollis is one half of the dynamic, powerhouse duo that is Rachel and Dave Hollis.

In addition to running a company and raising four small humans, later this year Dave will embark on The Dave Hollis Book Tour, regaling audiences all over the US with tales of how one former personal development skeptic became a spokesperson for growth and fulfillment.

This conversation is designed to get you clear, wake you up and ensure you finally stop self sabotaging and stop getting in your own way!
