RaderCo - Weekender Snapshot

Published 2 months ago • 2 min read

The National Speaker Association Thrive Winter Workshop left me full of ideas, especially about ethical artificial intelligence in business. One program I've hopped on board with is Castmagic for my podcasts – talk about a time-saver!

At the NSA conference, I met with our fantastic client, Dr. Maryal Concepcion, a powerhouse in Direct Primary Care. She's spreading the word about alternative healthcare options because, let's face it, traditional methods just don't cut it, especially for self-insured folks like me. Check out my LinkedIn post for a sanity-saving tip I gave her to handle all the great conference info.

Exciting book news alert!

We've got big plans brewing for a companion book to Work Well. Play More! Director of Marketing Lisa Wood is gearing up to work her design magic on it in Q2. Get ready; it will be the perfect partner for your behavior change!

I've also signed a contract with for the complete package deal to kickstart my fourth book later this year. Work Well. Play More! - but tailored specifically for teams. They loved the concept of Work Well. Play More! so much they opted to buy a copy even when I tried to give it to them for free! Plus, a stellar review from The Brainy Business herself?

Cue my happy dance!

On Tuesday, I swooped in to rescue Alexion Pharmaceuticals from their inbox chaos. One tip? A Communication Matrix—if this, then that. If it's this type of message, it's an email. If it's that kind of message, it's a Teams chat. It's all about streamlining communication for maximum efficiency and ensuring people know the proper message channels.

Over at CPA Academy, I shared some golden nuggets on time management with over 600 accountants. Are you prioritizing your inbox (another person's agenda) over your own task list? Let's flip the script and reclaim your time! Stop hitting it first thing in the morning and do your top task first.

When you get this, I'll be returning from three(!) personal Design Days at a garden cottage in Pittsboro, NC. No phone, email, or LinkedIn.

All focused on rehearsing my TEDx talk and crafting a brand-new keynote, tentatively titled The Relentless Pursuit of More. Who's ready to be the first to experience it? - Drop me a line, and let's get this party started!

On with the Weekender!


screen-free lunches

Do you find yourself having "screen lunches" during your workday? I explored the harmful effects of eating in front of a screen, such as reduced meal satisfaction, eye strain, digestive issues (yes, even those!), and decreased productivity. Start with just one screen-free meal a week - you may find your afternoons more energetic, focused, and creative!


I Respectfully Disagree: How to Have Difficult Conversations in a Divided World

This book by Justin Jones-Fosu made me do something rare - I stopped, reflected, and truly absorbed its message after each chapter. One significant takeaway was that agreeing to disagree isn't always respectful; sometimes, it's merely a cop-out, a sign of laziness, or a lack of willingness to understand the other person's perspective. It made me realize how I've fallen into the trap of 'keeping the peace' by disrespectfully agreeing rather than engaging authentically. In this upcoming year of politics and increasing polarization in many conversation areas, get this book to have constructive dialogues in the workplace, with loved ones or strangers, in all conversations.

P.S. Have you listened to our podcast & received a valuable piece of advice? We would looooove a review on your favorite podcast channel!

I'm SO excited! I just found out it's live! I can't wait for you to watch my TEDx Talk, The Relentless Pursuit of More: The High Cost of Overachieving. I spent 55 hours writing, tweaking, and rehearsing this 15-minute preparation. I was more vulnerable than ever, even sharing embarrassing events that may make you cringe (and even hold your nose!). I covered the trap of inbox zero, health over hustle, and unsustainable goals. A special ask for all the helpers out there... The first 72 hours of...
