Talking points as Corey joins Ed Andrew on human impact.

  • discovering his passion in his mid 20’s - "purpose for me was to create positive ripples in other peoples lives" (3)


  • his book "the book of why and how" comparing it to Simon Sinek


  • on his newest book - teaching timeless secrets after 5,000 interviews, idea of mission passion and purpose, his name change for his podcast - passion is what you do and purpose is why you are doing it, changing and adding to passions (7)


  • "some people don’t want their passion to be paid as would ruin them, it is not binary, on monetising your passion" (12)


  • discussing Zig Ziglar, he is trying to reach the 1% who want to help others reach the top enlightened superachievers (16)


  • discussing the 3rd most common trait of leaders - the power of No "the highest achievers know how and when to say no" (15)

  • the 2nd trait "lifelong learners are leaders, most people if they are willing to commit to life long learning will rise to the top or become a better version of themselves"


  • discussing complacency - most great leaders or coaches have great coaches - as long a you are coachable, you should have a learning plan and reward yourself and need someone to keep you accountable - on Geoff Bezon saying Amazon will eventually fail (22)


  • what is a true No and what is a true yes - on how he quantifies a no or a yes (24)


  • is curiosity a learned skill? passion is inside some of you somewhere, passion is not a learned skill but you need to exercise skills to uncover it and you need to apply that to curiosity as well (26)


  • the No 1 trait - 97% of 5,000 high achievers, they have found their passion and they are living on purpose every day - Bib Dylan quote "A man is a success if they get up and got to bed at night and in between they only do what they love” and usually in service to others ....


  • on speaking and paid gigs - no fee bookings, paying for speaking and paid for speakers - place some value for yourself whatever size, - if looking to get out to speaking - the earlier you can put a value on your time, learn the craft of speaking, a. don’t stuff slides with words use visual, storytelling and 3 major parts if under 45 mins, use an evaluation form that asks questions, testimonials, referrers, stay on time, be passionate (35)


  • the best speeches of all time like Martin Luther King never had powerpoint, most clients want powerpoint but just use a visual


  • on podcasting, most people want to know how to monetise it, now done 5,000 interviews, Harv Eker, Tony Horton, Jack Canfield don’t really do podcasts but we have them - took me years to learn, power of positioning but don’t lie. lot easier to leverage and monetise podcast and business (45)


  • podcasts and writing a book for credibility, suggest writing a book, very easy to write it and self publishing over major publisher - the differences, studied all the top leaders, common trait is that have at least one book with a published author (53)


  • on getting a TedX  - unless you know someone you will go through the application process, how to get in front of them 4 or 5 little hacks, best way to increase odd is to get to know more than one organiser (56)
