LIFT Your Story with Music Junkies Podcast’s Fun and Entertaining Host Annette Smith

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE FULL PODCAST

This was a fun Podcast getting to know Annette Smith and why she started her podcast Music Junkies. 

LaurieAnn was a guest and also had the opportunity to listen to many of Annette’s Podcasts, and they are so entertaining because she asks very interesting questions.  And Annette did say she can make Roy’s dream come true to be a guest on a podcast.  Hers.

Annette has her own business in the Financial Industry, and her desire was to have a Podcast that was upbeat.  At the onset, when she was searching for people who loved music and asked them to share, she said their stories were quite intense, and already dealing with clients during the day who struggled, she knew this was not the direction she was looking for.

So Music Junkies brings many different people with different backgrounds on her show where she says she takes time to pick from the playlist they provide to her, knowing the direction she wants to take her guest.  And Annette is good at that.

You feel so comfortable with her you might end up saying something you never knew you wanted to share before.  LOL.

A must listen to for great fun and entertainment, and connecting to the guests whose songs, quite often, will also take you back to that one experience that is connected to music.

Annette’s Podcast can be found by searching Music Junkies Podcast or Music Junkies with Annette Smith.  The direct link on Buzzsprout  is https://musicjunkies.buzzsprout.com

More about Annette:

One of our FIRST 10 guests on our show when it was called That Gal with That Guy. 🙂

Interesting conversation about changes over the years in comedy, including, of course, the COVID impact. From political correctness changes, to venue changes, to even how comedians are taking their profession seriously as a business.


Mark Breslin. Not only the CEO of Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Clubs for 44 years but also my mentor 20 years ago when he accepted to be the Chair of the Canadian Federation of Executive Entrepreneurs with Rodney De Freitas and me, presented at my Gala Dinner when I became the President of the Oakville Chamber of Commerce and supported #entrepreneurship across Canada. Inspirational and fun interview with my friend, my supporter, my mentor. THANK YOU so much for your time!

We really appreciate Mark’s time at #thatgalwiththatguy #liftyourstory

LIFT Your Story with John Davis the Corporate Action Hero

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE FULL PODCAST

We had a great time with John in this episode.  John is full of energy and laughs.  There were so many subjects we could have touched on,  however our time is limited, so we decided we would invite him back at some point to continue with new topics.

John explains the difference between the action hero and the super hero.  We won’t give the answer away here.  You will have to listen to find out. 🙂

John had a career as a fight director, stunt man, a fight choreographer, and over the years decided he wanted to inspire people.  He had a comedy tour called Hack and Slash, and says he enjoyed the after show talking to the people more than his time on stage.  From there he decided he wanted to help people and play with his cool stuff, so he created the Corporate Action Hero and is an inspirational speaker, working with corporations and “help them take their people from “ground hogs day” and turn them into people who are achieving more in their present moment”.

John, who wanted to be a stuntman, was injured and was told he would never be a stuntman, yet took this and created a stunman comedy show that he took across the world.

John speaks to stacking successful present moments.  Not to look at the future as a negative.  “You can’t get to the future, it’s coming to you”.

John also shares his most impactful  experience of his life.  Listen and find out what it was.

We had fun.  Thank you, John.


You can find John at www.corporateactionhero.com.  You can also find him on LinkedIn.

LIFT Your Story with Mike Montague Global Head of Content at Sandler Training and Founder of Playful Humans Podcast and Community

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE FULL PODCAST

“Can You Come Out And Play?” … a line we forget about when we become adults.  Sometimes I think that when we have children, for some of us, it’s an excuse to buy all the toys we wanted ourselves as children because we miss playing too.

To Mike it’s been a passion project for him to help adults rediscover the power of play.  He speaks to the “creative nerdery”, a term he and his cousins came up with which related to being playful.  Thinking back on that reminded him how much fun it was to play.

Mike shares that once he became an adult he started taking himself too seriously and although he realized this two years ago, it ramped up during the pandemic.  Working remotely became harder to have fun. 

Although his career, which was in radio and in advertising, did provide some playful moments, he still felt that he was still losing touch with having fun. 

Mike has done a lot of research over the past year, and interviewed several people who live in the “play for a living” world on his podcast Playful Humans.  He has also done scientific research, interviewing experts around play, creativity and innovation.  He says that those who play more are more attractive because they smile more, are more physically fit, more productive, more successful and have less stress.

Our culture still talks about working and grinding and having to put in the hours to be successful, yet research proves this not to be true. 

So are you ready to come out and play?  Then visit https://www.playfulhumans.com, become part of the community and take the quiz to find out what kind of playful human you are!  And be sure to listen to the Podcast by the same name.

More about Mike’s other world that we didn’t touch on because we were so intrigued by the playfulness!

Mike is also the author of LinkedIn the Sandler Way and an international social selling expert for Sandler Training, the world’s largest sales training organization. He also hosts the very popular How to Succeed podcast with over 450 episodes and over 1.75 Million total downloads!  You can also find Mike at www.mikemontague.com.

LIFT Your Story with Dialogue Doctor Jeff Elkins Writer Editor and Ghostwriter

CLICK HERE TO LISTEN

Jeff runs a service called Dialogue Doctor by night and works for a tech company Simmersion  by day.  Simmersion is a business that simulates difficult conversations for professionals to work with.  Jeff leads the writing team.  He sits down with world experts and as a professional mimick, he produces zoom like videos with Artificial Intelligence which are used to help people simulate difficult conversations.  This is where he began his ghostwriting and novels.  Jeff has 10 novels out, including two series – one mystery and the other urban fantasy.

One of the areas they deal with is Suicide Prevention.  He says when talking to someone who has suicidal ideations, you need to practice the critical conversation.  Jeff says that the skills he hones during the day transfer into his novels.

Jeff said he learned that it was important to network with other authors.  After “taking” from the community, he decided it was time to give back.  He began teaching how to write dialogue to authors.  He has just finished a 20 week master course.  He has a free podcast and newsletter that you can get at dialoguedoctor.com.   Jeff says dialogue is what engages the characters in the story.  It is how we connect – through conversation.

Jeff worked as a preacher for 15 years before becoming a writer.  He said he learned so much more when he had to teach something then when he sat in a class.  So when he was teaching his master course he said he too was learning.  Dialogue Daisy is one concept he created for the course and it is available on dialoguedoctor.com as well.  He says it has to do with going from the roots, to the stem and then to the blossom of a character’s voice, and the components and how to build them as a character.

We discussed words to avoid like the “but” and “actually” both of which are used so often by people without knowledge of the impact they have.  Writing dialogue is about using words strategically.  Jeff gave examples of words from an antagonist to a protagonist, and vice versa, which was really interesting!

Jeff shared with us that he was dyslexic as a child and avoided english at any cost.  As a high achiever, the only class he failed in College was English, and this was discouraging.  However, he persevered and an experience where he was sitting in a Deacon’s meeting changed his life.  At the end he was asked to write everything down from the meeting in a pamphlet.  Jeff wrote a 30 page pamphlet and was told he should write more.  He went online and took a course at https://thewritepractice.com and started writing short stories, and hence began his writing career.

When asked if he was now doing something he loves, he said he was “doing something he loves to do, and something that loves him back”.

If you are looking for help with writing, editing or would like to have someone write your book as a ghostwriter, or if you would like to get one of his books, you can reach Jeff at https://www.jeffelkinswriter.com or at https://www.dialoguedoctor.com.
