20: The Power of Gratitude

The Power of Gratitude

Gratitude is something I’ve been writing a lot about for my book: Gift Mindset.

And my guest today was the first person I thought of when I wanted to do an interview with someone that comes from a place of gratitude, who leads through gratitude, and I think embodies what gratitude is.

Being in gratitude and appreciating the things that we do have versus the things that we don't have I think as a leader in any role or as a business owner, or even life in general – is such an important thing to do and helps us to be and not just do.

Joining me on today’s show is Claire Summers.

Claire is the Founder of Gratitude Glass Jars.

After experiencing a series of deeply traumatic life experiences within a seven-month period, the last of which nearly took her life, Claire created the gratitude glass jar as a visual tool to help herself heal by capturing daily notes of gratitude that enabled her to rebuild herself and open her heart once more.

She decided (or dared) to try out a trade show as a sole exhibitor in the summer of 2017 in New York, where she won the award for the best product for gifts and lifestyle and was hand-selected by the team at Oprah, for consideration within Oprah's favourite thing within eight weeks of launching.

Onstage with Oprah Winfrey sharing her story, it became the number one selling product on Amazon and appeared on endless TV spots and media across the globe.

Gratitude Glass Jars has developed into a lifestyle brand with an assortment of products that encourage people to pause, share their stories, and inspire others. The movement is global glass jars are all about capturing the spirit of living, celebrating life events, sharing memories, and expressing words of love.

On the show, Claire speaks about The Power of Gratitude, including:

  • What gratitude means to her;
  • A different perspective on gratitude;
  • Separating gratitude from wants, and much more

How to Build Your Presence on Social Media as a Leader or Organisation

How to Build Your Presence on Social Media as a Leader or Organisation

On today’s show I’m looking forward to talking to you about something that is a constant conversation with many of the leaders and businesses I work within, which is the presence as a leader and/or an organisation on social media.

I’ve been asked by Michael Howard – Director of Human Capital International (with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with, along with some of his team members many years ago), to shed some light on how I've built my branding for my business, and my personal brand.

 

In this week's episode, I share how to build your presence on social media, including:

  • Ideas and tips and tricks on how I’m building my presence on social media;
  • How whether you’re an entrepreneur, a leader, or a business owner, it’s no longer optional to have a social media presence; and
  • How to leverage Linkedin, Facebook and Twitter, social media scheduling tools, and much more.

LISTEN NOW:

 

About Michael Howard:

I have a passion for developing the capabilities of leaders.

Working with individuals and teams, often in a workshop environment, it is very satisfying to foster and hone skills that contribute to personal and organisational success.

My time working in the financial services sector was pivotal my own leadership development. I thrived on the challenges as I moved through several different areas – Learning and Development, Product Management, Business Planning, Sales and Regional Management.

I still draw on my corporate experience most days; it gave me a great understanding of the issues that organisations and business leaders are challenged with every day.
