FF172: Fun And Authenticity In Business with Rod Bourn

Rod is the founder and Lead Ninja of Down, Set, Lead and helps organizations grow their business and people through coaching, training and mentoring. Rod and I have a fun conversation about ‘Having Fun’ and ‘Being Authentic.’ People love authenticity and that’s what draws them to you.

Highlights From This Episode:

  • If you’re happy you’re going to be healthier, and if you’re healthier, you’re going to be happier
  • Rod will send you his new book (a gift) if you give him an answer that makes him laugh to his joke … ‘How many guys in kilts does it take to put in a light bulb?
  • You have to be intentional about making your life fun.
  • People love authenticity and are drawn to you. You make them feel more confident in themselves and you are more comfortable yourself.
  • We need that human connection and people telling us that we’re okay.
  • How often do the businesspeople say Thank you. I appreciate you coming in.

Rod challenged us, 3 times a day, for the rest of this week, make sure that you say, Thank you, I appreciate you, to whoever you sincerely want to thank and appreciate.
