On the Schmooze

Welcome to On the Schmooze, a weekly podcast that features a mix of interviews and solo shows. My hope is that insights from me and my guests will help you achieve the leadership position you’re seeking, build and sustain your professional network, and find the work/life balance that works best for you. Interviews are with talented people from different fields. We explore how they built strong networks and overcame challenges on their way to becoming successful leaders. I identify a key take-away from each interview, something you can put into action that week that you’ll benefit from for years to come. In the show notes I provide resources to help you get started. Solo shows are shorter episodes where I share practical networking tips and techniques you can put into practice right away. Podcast inspired by Dorie Clark, Pat Flynn, Jonny Nastor, Dale Carnegie.

Today’s guest is passionate about helping employees, managers, and business owners move their business and personal life to the next level through word of mouth referrals.

He has experienced the same challenges that most employees and business owners face. He used his failures to craft a message as a speaker that resonates with his audiences and leaves them with actionable steps to improve their business.

He is the author of “MORE…Word of Mouth Referrals, Lifelong Customers & Raving Fans” and host of the small business podcast Square Peg Round Hole.

Please join me in welcoming Matt Ward.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “You need to develop your skills enough for other people to see you as a leader. My analogy is that you can’t push a rope, you can only pull it.”
  • how owning his own company taught him he was a leader.
  • his combination of networking and bootstrapping that has brought him significant success.
  • how he believes results come from building true, meaningful, and deep relationships with others.
  • his tools for networking, including using LinkedIn to set up “catch-up calls” and his old school handwritten notes “20-20-20” method.
  • his high-five effect idea and his goal for giving 1,000 high-five’s in 2019.
