S1 E27: How to Give Advice Effectively


Michael Bungay Stanier says, “This is why, in a nutshell, advice is overrated. I can tell you something, and it’s got a limited chance of making its way into your brain’s hippocampus, the region that encodes memory. If I can ask you a question and you generate the answer yourself, the odds increase substantially.” 

Learn how to avoid giving advice on repeat and living on repeat.

People who live on repeat are a broken record. Let me say that again. :-) If your life is on repeat, it means you’re a broken record. Learn how to provide newness by experiencing newness through priming, listening, and creative customized coaching. Discover how to help people come up with their own framework so they can own the solution and implement the solution with excellence.  

S1 E28: Use the Humble Power Alternative Now


Empathy, mindfulness and humility. What’s the humble power alternative? In my consulting work, I meet many people who have spent years agonizing over something they’ve always wished they could do. People always have some thoughts of doing a personal or professional project — like write a book, lose weight, start a business or join a different social group — but they’re stuck. They’re too prideful to allow themselves the chance of looking silly amongst their peers. Yes, in fact, in many ways pride is a form of fear.

The Protestant work ethic comes into play here in the West. Prideful people seek attention in shadows with envy. Humble people get attention because others shine the light on them as good examples of behavior. By definition, the ego is the consciousness of your self-identity. In other words, ego is who you think you are. Discover how to see the signs of pride creep. It takes personal humility to keep ego in check so your strengths don’t become weaknesses. To be humble is to be teachable.

Take your learning and apply it to something valuable. Share the love to fill the needs of others. If anyone calls you names, remember, they are looking at their own reflection and probably hate themselves. Love them anyways cause “haters gonna hate.” Protect your talent and value-add to the world by taking personal inventory of your thoughts from time-to-time and see if pride is creeping in. If pride’s creeping in, “creep” it back out with a dash of humility so you can start something stupidly important.

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.
