Episode #15: Build Your Thriving Community With Maryland Governor Candidate Alec Ross

Our first interview of the year just might be our most important.  That’s because I speak with Alec Ross – a 2018 Maryland gubernatorial candidate, New York Times best selling author, tech entrepreneur and former senior advisor on Innovation, to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

This conversation is different from our previous interviews because we focus on community and other people.  In particular, Alec and I talk about how we can create thriving communities that are stronger … that lift each other up, and help everyone to thrive.

When we think about how we can really improve our lives to thrive, we often look inward.  That’s a real missed opportunity if we don’t look outward as well.  Other People Matter.  Just about everything good we experience in life – be it at work, in our families, at school, in sports … whatever it is, is almost always in the presence of other people.

From Nuclear Non-Proliferation Policy Expert to CEO And Founder of InnovatorsBox

I teach creativity and innovation courses at the Unvirsity of Maryland’s Academy of Innovation & Entrepreneurship.  One of the questions I ask my students often is, “How many of you think you are creative?”  The response is always the same – one or two hands respond yes – that’s less than 10% every time.

Most people just don’t think they are creative or can ever be creative.  If that describes you, or if you want to learn how you pump up your creativity, then today’s episode is definitely for you.

Today I speak with Monica Kang, CEO and founder of InnovatorsBox, a company that is helping individuals and organizations learn to be creative and reach their full potential.

Episode# 002: Want More Success? Learn How By Getting More Grit With Caroline Miller.

Do you know what the number one predictor of success is in your life?  It’s not how smart you are (IQ).  It’s not how much money you have or come from.  It’s not how talented or well liked you are.  It’s how much grit you have.

The research on grit was made famously popular by my former graduate school professor and MacArthur Genius Award winner, Angela Duckworth.  She literally wrote the book on the theory of grit.

But it’s not enough to know the theory of grit.  If you really want to learn to be more successful – get that big promotion, build a lasting relationship, become a great parent, or just get really good at something – then this episode is an absolute must for you.  Today, I speak to Caroline Miller about how we can get more grit right now, and other unique insights from her book, Getting Grit.

I encourage you to check out this latest book of hers – it’s really the best practical guide there is to the developing more grit in your life – find it here Getting Grit: The Evidence-Based Approach to Cultivating Passion, Perseverance, and Purpose.
