Ep. 678 - Ditch the Act: Reveal the Surprising Power of the Real You for Greater Success
6-27-22 Allen Cardoza Interviews Ryan Foland
BE HUMAN. It’s the only way to get ahead in business. Competition today is fiercer than ever. It seems that every job candidate is flashing a world-class resume and every business competitor is the absolute best at what they do. Add to that a worldwide pandemic shutting down business you never thought would go away while others are having trouble spring up in their place, and your competition just got that much more fierce.
Ryan Foland has a message for your audience, however: Don’t. Be. Fooled. and Don’t. Be. Discouraged. People exaggerate out of desperation. By revealing stories of failures, setbacks, and personal flaws without shame or fear, you exhibit greater self-confidence than your competition. You cultivate connections with serious, smart people, and you build loyalty that lasts.
Ditch the Act shows how to present your humanness―imperfect and flawed but honest, resilient, and willing to learn―in strategic ways to achieve clear, defined goals. It provides an actionable program for building an authentic, long-lasting personal brand, explaining why exposure is important and how it cultivates more durable connections than any polished persona can. Ditch the act, be real―and jump ahead of the competition before they even know you are there.
