 Introversion is not shyness. 

S1 E17: Susan Cain — Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

Introversion is not shyness. You can be a shy extrovert or an introvert who is not shy. “Don’t think of introversion as something that needs to be cured.” What about the Western Extroversion Ideal? The omnipresent belief that the ideal self is gregarious, alpha and comfortable in the spotlight” has pitfalls. What about extroverts who claim to be introverts? Discover the power of Quiet personally, professionally and in parenting.

Erase from your vocabulary, “Now, I want to be someone else” and discover the power of quiet. Includes strategies for parents, children, teachers, in the office, at home and personally. What about introverted parenting? What if you have children with two kinds of children (introvert, extrovert)? 
How do you best parent them with the chill time or attention needed? Clue: Don’t overprotect them, honor who they are. As Susan Cain says on this podcast, “Introverted kids have a longer runway that they have to travel before they take off and fly…you want to be with them on that runway…and they need to know from you that you really love who they are on that runway with them.”

S1 E19: How to Launch Your Core Personal Projects

#19 Solocast Mini-training: Richie goes solo and shares with you specific stories with tactics you can implement immediately to launch your core personal projects.

#19. RICHIE NORTON SOLOCAST MINI-TRAINING: Richie goes solo and shares with you stories with tactics you can implement by using the power of core projects to increase your happiness, productivity and flourishing. Susan Cain said,

“According to Free Trait Theory, we are born and culturally endowed with certain personality traits—introversion, for example—but we can and do act out of character in the service of ‘core personal projects.’ In other words, introverts are capable of acting like extroverts for the sake of work they consider important, people they love, or anything they value highly. Free Trait Theory explains why an introvert might throw his extroverted wife a surprise party or join the PTA at his daughter’s school. It explains how it’s possible for an extroverted scientist to behave with reserve in her laboratory, for an agreeable person to act hard-nosed during a business negotiation, and for a cantankerous uncle to treat his niece tenderly when he takes her out for ice cream.”

Richie shares with you his own personal project concepts, why he frames them the way he does, how to create language around ideas so they become successful projects and how you can too.

What is an Aftercast and a Solocast?

Every Interview is followed by what I call an Aftercast and a Solocast. So. each episode becomes a three-part training. These mini-trilogy trainings can be listened independently. I’ve included the Aftercast and Solocast for those looking to create significant, meaningful life and business transformations.

All improvement is self-improvement.

I invented / coined the term “aftercast” to mean an in-depth, post-show review of the interview show I do with my guests to serve my listeners as mini-training for greater implementation. An aftercast is a reward for action-takers interested in the topic(s) my guest. My aftercast podcast draws primarily from my guest’s content as the subject material for life and business lessons.

The solocast piece in this three-part scenario is the last episode in the podcast training trilogy. In a solocast, I teach my listeners entrepreneurship, life lessons and more drawing primarily from my own teachings, philosophies, experiences and works around the topics discussed with my guests.

If you listen to all three parts in what I call a podcast stack or podcast stacking, you will 1) learn from an expert in an interview format, 2) take a deep dive into the expert’s content as if it were a high-level training or masterclass on subject-matter strategy, and 3) learn additional ways to from me on how I implement the information and you can to as a practical, hands-on approach.

Strategy is in the head. Tactics are in the hands. Results are in the heart.

The Richie Norton Show podcast stacks are similar to the stuff trainers sell for a lot of money because they are valuable. I know because I do sell this stuff, my clients sell this stuff and we buy this stuff. It’s that good. Hope you enjoy this free content…free is a fast way to spread a message but my fear is that you won’t take it for the value it can provide. I hope the effort to listen will help you learn, launch and live for the better–whatever that looks like for you.

Dream big and act on the small things.
