Taking your shoes off before you enter a home is a thoughtful gesture and something many people have done for a long time. And it really is good idea. Why? Listen as I explain what people track in on the bottom of their shoes besides dirt. It's really pretty disgusting. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2019/07/03/my-shoes-dirty-studies-suggest-theyre-covered-fecal-bacteria/1637780001/ Whether you like Amazon or not, you have to admire the incredible success that company has achieved with Jeff Bezos at the helm. How did Amazon get to be such a giant company so fast? You see their trucks everywhere, many of us send or receive products and do a lot of shopping on Amazon. Beyond that there is Alexa, Kindle, Whole Foods, and much more to Amazon. Is Jeff Bezos just a genius? Why didn’t someone else think of this before or at least try to compete better? Someone who understands Amazon well is Brad Stone, senior executive editor for global technology at Bloomberg News and the author of Amazon Unbound: Jeff Bezos and the Invention of a Global Empire (https://amzn.to/3hxau9u). Listen as he takes us inside the workings at Amazon and explains how Jeff Bezos did what he did – the good and bad.  Speaking and listening. You do those two things more than any others all day long. Yet, you were probably never taught how to speak or how to listen – at least not in any formal way. However, the better you are at these skills, the more interesting people will think you are and the more effective you will be in life according to my guest Julian Treasure. He is a leading expert in communication and sound and is author of the book How to be Heard: Secrets for Powerful Speaking and Listening (https://amzn.to/3hEMyBk). Listen as he explains the science of how we talk and listen and how all of us can improve our skills to be more effective communicators in any situation.

Listen as I explain the reasons why. https://bit.ly/2RCz7XH PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS!
