Weekly Roundup: 5 Must-See YouTube Videos for Entrepreneurs (May 1, 2015)
This week’s roundup of essential videos for entrepreneurs includes Brendon Burchard on high performance, Jeffrey Pfeffer on the life-threatening impact of job-related stress, and Derek Halpern on why being weird can help your business. Plus, Google Small Biz Community hangs out with Etsy to discuss year-round seasonal opportunities for retailers and Evan Carmichael shares three creative ways to stay motivated in your business.
What Is High Performance?
“High-performance coach Brendon Burchard” explains what exactly “high performance” means and offers insights into how you can become a High Performer too. High Performers are not born, Burchard insists—high-performance habits are learned and practiced. With that practice, you can start lead what Burchard refers to as “The Charged Life,” with higher clarity, energy, courage, productivity, and influence than the average person. Not too shabby.
Jeffrey Pfeffer: Is Your Workplace Killing You?
It’s a sobering fact: 120,000 people in the U.S. will die from job-related stress this year. It’s an important thing to think about whether you’re an employee or an employer. Jeffrey Pfeffer of Stanford Graduate School of Business discusses the toll that work-related stress takes on employees and the companies they work for and offers some ideas for change.
Seasons of Opportunity: A Hangout with Etsy
Rachel Sterling of Google Small Business Community talks to Parker Gard from Etsy about how small business owners can spot seasonal opportunities all year-round. That’s right—retail spikes don’t have to be limited to the holidays. “While the winter shopping months are certainly a high volume for all retail kind of across the board,” Gard says, “there are many opportunities to capitalize on shopping trends.” Sterling and Gard discuss how to do just that in this 27-minute conversation that’s filled with great advice and information for the retail small business.
Yep! I look ridiculous. It’s on purpose. And Why You Should Be Weird
Derek Halpern talks about why being weird in social situations can be good for business. While Dale Carnegie of How to Win Friends and Influence People fame advised, “Just ask people questions and they’ll love you,” Halpern suggests, sure, maybe, but will they remember you if all you do is ask questions and play it safe? Probably not. Halpern gives tips on how to let your quirks shine so that you won’t just blend in with everyone else.
3 Creative Ways to Stay Motivated in Your Business
Everyone has their down days, even energetic entrepreneurs like Evan Carmichael. He discusses why having a “Big Why” is essential to staying motivated (and your Big Why can’t be money!). You also need Little Why’s to support your Big Why, and your environment and routine are important for staying motivated and becoming successful. As Carmichael says, “Everything in your life has to make you become the best version of yourself if you wanna go out and do something great in this world.”
