089 Invent Your Path to Fulfillment with Steve Kurti

 Enroll in our FREE 8-day ‘Figure it Out’ course to find the work that fits YOU! About Steve Kurti We are born with the desire to learn more and somehow if it disappears, it’s because something in our life has beat it down. – Steve Kurti Steve Kurti is a physicist, inventor (or “tinkerer” as he refers to himself), and educator who believes that we need to instill a hunger for learning in our kids and find ways to reconnect with it as adults.  He and his wife have created Table Top Inventing to inspire kids to “be explorers, tinkerers, innovators, and deep thinkers” through summer camps, meet-up groups, classroom activities, and more! As kids we’re born with a natural curiosity, fearlessness, and a desire to absorb as much information as we can. But for many of us, a lot of that spirit of wonder gets lost somewhere along the way into adulthood.  If we can reconnect with our former selves and rediscover a passion for learning, we might just uncover the path to our greatest fulfillment. What You Will Learn: In our desire to conform we start to allow ourselves to believe that we need to be the same and the questioning, ‘Why is that?’ starts to shrivel up a little bit and starts to wilt. That’s the beginning and that’s the end of our curiosity. Why learning to learn is worth more than all the knowledge in the world. How reconnecting with our former selves and channeling our lost fearlessness and wonder can lead us to greater satisfaction in life and in our careers. Why the best thing teachers can do is to...

085 The Business of Funny with David Nihill

 Enroll in our FREE 8-day ‘Figure it Out’ course to find the work that fits YOU! About David Nihill Public speaking is one of the top fears, if not the number one fear most people have.  In more severe cases it can cause people to avoid situations that might help them move their careers forward. Best-selling author of Do You Talk Funny? 7 Comedy Habits to Become a Better (and Funnier) Public Speaker, David Nihill wants to help us all get over this fear and become better public speakers and storytellers. He was born in Dublin (and claims no one here in the U.S. understands his accent!).  He earned a Masters in Business and began working with the Irish government to help startups.  He’s been working with startups ever since, though now it’s through his FunnyBizz Conference series where he uses a comedic approach to help content creators leverage the power of storytelling, comedy, and improv! David forced himself into public speaking when he was asked to emcee a comedy fundraiser for a friend.  This was a guy, who by his own account, would turn into a “sweaty mess” and once in college, got drunk and swore like a sailor through a presentation! He points to the “10,000 hour rule”, explored in-depth in Malcolm Gladwell’s Outliers as an explanation for his now mastery of the art of comedy and public speaking.  Practice is what it takes.   What You Will Learn: How to structure a winning presentation. Why ending your presentation on Q & A is NOT a good idea (though most of us still do it!) AND what to do instead!...
