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 was called “a cult legend in the online community-building world” by Mashable.

He has been at the forefront of building highly curated, technology-enabled communities for ambitious professionals. He is focused on creating a strong membership experience and positive business outcomes for thousands of successful executives, thought leaders, business owners, and entrepreneurs across the country.

He first co-founded Brazen Technologies, a career-management site for high-achieving young professionals and ambitious college students. After that, he went on to co-found Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an invitation-only organization for leading entrepreneurs. In 2018, along with his business partner Scott Gerber, he authored Superconnector: Stop Networking & Start Building Business Relationships That Matter.

Today, he and his team are building the future of professional organizations with The Community Company, an organization which creates community programs for global brands and media companies.

Please join me in welcoming Ryan Paugh.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • his thoughts on leadership: “Leadership is being a person who puts other people’s needs in front of their own to focus on how they can help other people do their best work, sometimes at the sacrifice of what they are working on.”
  • how his focus for business growth is on helping the people on his team break through barriers to be their best.
  • how his empathy and desire for everyone to feel connected has existed his whole life, and how connecting people began when he was young.
  • what being a superconnector looks like for him as an introverted and analytical person.
  • his thoughts on networking events and how he creates an oasis for people who want to connect with others away from the noise.
  • how he connects with people in his extended network, using a combination of strategy, intention, and serendipity.
