A Super Secret Search Strategy with a Twist
Answer (my) Questions

+Gini Dietrich gives you a much needed reminder of one of the easiest search strategies you'll ever need. 

This time around she's added one extra word to make it work even better.

I promise it works.

What question(s) haven't you answered?

#SEO   #Optimization   #Google  
 
The Google loves content that answers questions. Here are several ways you can do that...and the one word you should almost always include.
In a Medium article, NY Times staff editor, Daniel Victor, discusses the one word (and its cousin) you should use to create content that answers questions.

What Was Your Last Idea You Brought to the Surface?
Starting in 10 MIn.

Until about 45 min. ago I had no idea what this conversation with +Mitch Joel was going to be about.

Luckily enough, that's not a problem and more and I was able to surface big and small ideas for where the talk is heading.

See you there.
 
Can you see what's coming and pull it to the top?

How easy is it for you to get to your "moment of insight?" 

That's how +Mitch Joel describes your ability to perfectly understand a situation and see what everyone else is missing. 

It's in those moments you have a chance to find something great and share it with the world. 

Logic would dictate the more moments you have the better chance you'll have finding repeated success. 

The part that sets our ABC family movie ending on fire is that level of brain functionality is embarrassingly difficulty when you're running in the middle of the pack.

What Mitch will hopefully be able to bring to the show this week is a better understanding of how start creeping up to the front of the line and find more insight to bring our best ideas to life.

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and get you to the surface.

Join me, +Joey Giangola  for this new adventure.

What Are You Getting?
Starting in 30 Min.

Are you're trying something new?

Something different?

Something most of the real people in your life don't get?

Well chances are you've found yourself selling acceptance to them recently but in all probability ended up with tolerance.

+Chase Reeves is sitting in the fearless seat today to help us figure out why it's important and how we can help acceptance win (more).

#Acceptance   #Innovation   #New   #Risk   #Business   #Change  
 
Are you getting support or indifference?

We want the people we care most about to care about what we care most about.

But...

Because we care so much about that person and that thing, we are sometimes willing, knowingly or unknowingly, to blind ourselves of the reality of their level of caring.

If you are trying to make radical changes in your life or do some of the crazy things we fearlessly question on a weekly basis, you have at one time or another found yourself selling the minimum essential participation to that person.

If you've ever stared a sentence with, "It will only..." you've tried to gain acceptance for something, but probably ended up with tolerance. 

+Chase Reeves is going to sit in the fearless seat this week to try and help improve your acceptance rate and fight the evil battle against tolerance. 

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and figure out what you're getting.

Stop Me If You've Heard This One... 

You mean well. 

You want to do the right thing.

You certainly aren't doing your best on purpose.

Or are you?

That's what we're going to find about 90 min. when +Shawna Coronado tells you how, why and when your best isn't as good as you think. 

#HealthyLiving   #DoingYourBest   #MakingaDifference   #BetterSolutions  
 
Are you really or is it just what you know?

How many times have you heard someone say "I just want to do what's best for..." and than be struck with amazement at the prefered solution? 

This is probably going to be one of the least popular sentences I've ever written, but I find some of the biggest offenders of that phrase to be parents talking about their children.

They want to "do what's best" but often find themselves choosing from a very shallow pool of options that rarely are accused of being different (or good).

That's why +Shawna Coronado agreed to wear the badge of honor this week so we can find out if you're really doing what's best or if you're just doing what you know.

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and figure out how to make better choices.

Can You Ask Yourself This Question?

We all have this "thing" that we think we are great at, but are you really as good as you think you are?

Once you have hung your hat on this "thing" you rarely take if off and examine it's relevance or if it is even still important.

Today in our little one-on-one time, I tell you about how I recently realized I wasn't as good as I thought and how important always being better is. 

This week's fearless questions are unofficially sponsored by +Ryan Hanley's new book Content Warfare

http://fearlesslyquestioning.com/36-1/

#Improvement   #CustomerService   #CustomerExperience   #Better  
Are you as good as you think you are? I don’t know, but I do know you probably don’t stop and ask yourself that question often enough. Once you get to a certain level you assume you’ve learned as much as you can. It’s easy to do and hard to escape. But today in our …

What Do You Want More of and How Do You Find It?

Most of conventional wisdom has taught us that to get more we need to do more. 

What that wisdom never told us to do first is somehow figure out what is actually important. 

Because we had already recalibrated our clutter tolerance, it got a little tricky to pick out the good stuff. 

Today, we're going to be picking out the good stuff with +Brooke McAlary and help you make a little more room.

How much room do you need?

#SlowHome   #Minimalism   #Focus   #ImportanThings  
 
Can you get more by doing less?

If it's one thing I've figured out in my time being an "adult" it's that a lot of what we've blindly accepted as routine and customary was created from a place that wasn't always on our side.

These habits, methods, practices and even collections might actually be having the opposite effect that was initially intended.

It's easy to say do the right things for the right reasons, it's another to fully understand what that looks like and how to do it.

That's why +Brooke McAlary will be sitting in the fearless seat this week figure out how and why we might need to slow down to make room for the things we haven't  realized are the most important.

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and find you some extra space.

Join me,+Joey Giangola for this new adventure. 

You can learn more about +Brooke McAlary for yourself at http://www.slowyourhome.com/

Join The Hangout (No Seriously, For Real, Like on Camera)

We are going to try something "fearless" in the hangout world and bring on the person each week who asks the best fearless question in the event page. 

If you want a chance to ask your question to Brooke face to face, start submitting your questions now. Use the hashtag  #CameraReady after your question so I know you're willing/able to come on the show and ask it.

If your question gets the most +1's we will invite you to join us in the hangout for the last few minutes.

On Second Thought...
Starting in 45 min.

You probably did it today and I bet you'll do it again tomorrow.

What am I talking about?

I bet you made at least one decision based on how it would be viewed by someone else.

The big question is why?

Is it getting you what you want?

Is it making your life better?

The answers to those questions might be yes and no. 

+Stephanie Sims and I have conflicting answers to a lot of these questions and it's going to be a lot of fun to find out how different they are.

We would be thrilled if you wanted to join us and maybe even share your answers.

#Perception   #Decisions   #Business   #Conformity   
 
Do peoples thoughts about you stop you from doing what you need to?

I know, you want people to like you. It's probably a natural instinct to care about the way people perceive and react to the things you do any say.

But is the constant perception paranoia getting you anything?

I can't remember where I first heard this, but the opposite of love isn't hate, it's indifference.

If you're inspiring indifference you're probably not enjoying your life as much as you'd hope.

Like or dislike, you've at least moved the needle one way or the other. But if you only want to push that needle one way, that usually leads to it not moving anywhere.

That's what my new friend +Stephanie Sims has agreed to let me go after her about this week.

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and see how nice you should be.

Do Your Subtle Skills Creative Obvious Success? 

I bet there's something that you're a little weird about and by weird I mean fanatic, that has seeped its way into your "professional persona."

If it's one thing I love about +Mitch Joel, as my man crush reaches dangerous levels (I'm going to ask +Ryan Hanley if I can be VP of the fan club), it's his willingness to consider influence from unlikely places AND openly try to help you connect the dots.

That's what he delivers in his rant to lead into today's show. His unlikely influence is stand-up comedy and I have never fully agreed more with anything, ever.

You Can't Do It

Last week +Shawna Coronado told me something that I kinda knew, but still have a hard time accepting. 

I see a lot of misguided decisions being made in the parenting world. Those observation served as the catalyst for our conversation to find better (possibly more informed) intentions behind your actions. 

What is your place in getting others to do what's best?

How do you want someone to help you do what's best?

We dive into all of that and plenty more.

Are You As Good As You Think You Are?
Starting in 30 Min.

I don't know about you, but I'm very guilty for learning just enough to think I know it all. 

At the same time, once we've reach a certain status we set it and forget it. All the while continually referencing that "thing" as if 

Today we're going to take a look with +Mark Kilens at what being better actually gets you and how often you need to do it?

I'll see you there. 

#Improvement   #StatusQUo   #Challenges   #DoingBetter  
 
Are you really as good as you think you are?

There's usually at least one thing you hang your hat on and say "I have the best this or we have the best that."

You wear that "best" thing on your chest like a badge.

But how many times do you actually stop and check how true it is?

That's why +Mark Kilens will be sitting in the fearless seat today to figure out how much delight your best should bring.

Mark is the +HubSpot Academy leader and regular status quo challenger who's convinced delightfully solving peoples problems is a recipe for success. 

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and figure out who you really are.

How Much of You Do We Know?
Starting in 50 Min.

I'm always struggling, striving or some other "S" word to connect and relate to people through the content I create.

Rarely do I feel that version of me is something people aren't accepting of. 

However, maybe I'm wrong. 

I guess you would be one of the only people who could tell me.

It might be just my luck that I found someone who is equally if not more himself than I am in +Ralph M. Rivera who's just about ready to take his turn in the fearless seat today.

Are you coming with us?

#Authenticity   #Transparency   #Yourself  
 
Can You Really Show Everyone Everything?

I don't know +Ralph M. Rivera that well, not at all really, but what I've been able to observe from a far is that he is unapologetically himself, all the time.

With the trendy, "be yourself" and "authenticity" bugs that are floating around this is a message we can rally behind pretty easily. 

However, amid our ABC Family movie feel good enthusiasm for this topic I bet you're not being as transparent as you think.

You can't, because it's really hard. 

The real question is, do you need to be? Or does that extra level of selfness just get a little awkward and kinda weird?

That's what we're going to find out.

Today we are going to go deep, rattle some cages and figure out who you really are.
