As I've grown as a leader I have a better understanding of what truly drives behavior, motivation, and long term success. If we can make better people, the sales will follow. 

I love scaling sales teams. I have built teams from 0-150+ reps, revenues from 0-100M+ ARR (and counting). I believe in processes and systems, paired with skill development, as the code to success. 

I also love to share what I have learned, and what I am learning with others. I consult all sorts of different companies and people as they look to improve their results. I mentor and consult early, mid, and late-stage SaaS companies all across the world. Sharing my playbooks and processes for scaling sales teams successfully.

I have spoken at the top conferences across the country, mentor/coach start up's across the country, and love sharing as I go. 

If there is a book on sales, psychology or influence I have probably read it. I am a voracious learner and am constantly pushing myself and my team to reach new heights of achievement. Because of my own internal desire to learn and grow, that also gets translated out to my team with non-stop growth, coaching and training.

Episode 153: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Daisy Chung(Director of Sales at Orum)

Join us for Episode 153 of The Davidson Hang Podcast- a podcast about sales, Self Improvement, Business, and how we can make more money and become more successful offering tips and advice on how to achieve your goals. 

I have with me Daisy Chung who is currently a Director of Sales at Orum. Orum is a software tool built for Sales that delivers instant live customer conversations to your target market. They are a series A tech start-up based in the bay area. Daisy made her way through Namely starting off as a Sales Development Representative and then was promoted to a Manager of Sales Development and then became an Account Executive and relocated to LA to start the office. She left Namely to become an Enterprise Account Executive being Employee #7 and became the Sales Rep of the year closing over 3.3 million in Annual Recurring Revenue. 

These were my top ten takeaways from our conversation
1. Always have an empowering context- attitude makes a huge difference in an industry where rejection is something that you deal with pretty often working on deals throughout your career.
2. There is a huge upside to being in tech sales if you are willing to put in the work and you have a learning mindset.
3. Don't be a follower. Because of the decisions, she's made- she is able to live a life that includes a lot of freedom with a huge financial upside. 
4. Don't be afraid to take a risk. Of course, many of her friends took more conventional paths and she decided to choose a career that was different than everyone else and because of that, she's able to have a ton of early success. 
5. Be Coachable and be open to setbacks. There were times when she did not receive the promotion and in hindsight, it worked out because she wasn't quite ready. 
6. If you are curious about software sales reach out to find a mentor. 
7. Breaking down goals into mathematical outputs will help you achieve your desired outcome more consistently. It all starts with a vision and then work your way backward to achieve your goals. 
8.  Evaluate the product, the accelerators, and what the upside is vs the base salary when considering a role in sales. 
9.  In software sales, you can really work hard and achieve your goals and make 400-500k a year and then take a year off if you really wanted to and that's what is possible if you commit to this craft. 
10. The Analogies between sales and life. Attitude determines altitude.

"You know that feeling when everything is in alignment in a particular moment and you're overcome with this sense of peace, presence, and purpose? Can you recall the energy that is generated from this state of flow? That feeling of electricity embodies who I choose to be in the world and what I intend to create in it.

I believe there is nothing more powerful than a person who has identified who they are, their purpose in life, and is maniacally working to manifest that gift in the world. I am passionate about the continual evolution, transformation, and partnership required on the journey towards the most authentically expressed version of self. When that is achieved, anything becomes possible. 

I am a life coach. I partner with people to get closer to who they are at their highest self and create what they truly desire in their lives. I welcome and invite opportunities for relationships and creating new possibilities together."

Episode 148: Howie Zuo on Emotional Intelligence, breaking through cultural and societal expectations

Taking from his website.

My story is a lot like many of your stories; I am a child of immigrant parents who moved from China to the United States with dreams of a better future for themselves and their children. My childhood had an emphasis on studying hard, getting into a good university, a good job, and so on. 

Between choosing between a doctor, accountant, lawyer, or engineer, I ended up studying Chemical Engineering at Georgia Tech (Go Yellowjackets!). It wasn’t something I was passionate about but it was supposed to guarantee success. I assumed my parents knew what was best for me and I was following all of the steps they said I needed to become financially secure and happy.

I knew the gig was up when I graduated from college. There was no sudden epiphany when I received my diploma. In fact, things got harder. Graduating into the Great Recession, employers weren’t interested in a new graduate with little experience. My then-girlfriend left me, with a hole in my heart and self-esteem damaged. Where was this so-called happiness I was promised?

I moved to California from New Jersey to start fresh. It wasn’t easy but it was worth it, to build myself up and the life I wanted. Although things got better (a good job making decent money, a nice place to live, and a loving partner), I still felt like something was missing…

The conclusion that I came to was that I was living my life by every other terms except mine. Certainly, I was comfortable but not fulfilled. I wanted to be in the driver’s seat of my life. I kept depending on external factors to make me happy, but realized I can only be happy if I internalize being happy.

Seeing friends and others in the community struggle with the same issues, I decided to start Thriving Turtle. As a Life Coach and Emotional Intelligence Trainer, I want to be the resource that I wish I had when I was younger. To be clear, I don’t resent the fact that I learned so late, but I can see how much better me and my community can be if we learned sooner rather than later. 

Thank you for reading my story. I would love to connect with others who want to support others in their personal happiness and emotional intelligence journey and open to collabs / networking / etc. 

Owner of Thriving Turtle (
Providing emotional intelligence guidance to those who want to go from doing "ok" to doing "awesome"

We discussed context around what it means to be Asian American to break through societal expectations. We celebrate our growth and how much joy emotional intelligence work has brought to our lives.

Entrepreneurship Top 10 Tips
1.     Write a business plan (Turn your idea into actionable steps)

  -         Estimate Startup costs, expenses and estimate how much business you need to profit.
2.     Start small & build from there
  -         You don’t need a massive facility or all the expensive equipment right away.
3.     Know your strength and weaknesses
  -         If you can’t figure it out yourself, hire someone who specializes in that. Example – accounting
4.     Work towards improving every day –
  -         Personally – Take care of your own health and well being
  -         In business – Complacency is the enemy of success   
5.     Be passionate & genuine
  -         Customers, Investors, Business Partners will know right away if you really believe in your service or product.
  -         Be an expert in your service/product or always be working on becoming an expert.
6.     Fake it till you make it – ALL new business owners are learning and figuring it out as they go. Mistakes will happen, all that matters is how you adapt and correct your mistakes.
7.     Never be too good to take out the trash
  -         Always be willing to do any jobs at your business
8.     Be a leader – Take responsibility for all things in your business. Leaders don’t blame staff, customers, other external factors.
9.     Your service/product – Charge what your worth. Undercutting the competition is a race to the bottom.
10. Becoming an entrepreneur is incredible.
  -         If it was easy, everyone would do it.  Plenty of people told me it was a bad idea.  If you can make your passion into a business it’s one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. - Going into work and putting in hours isn’t a chore when your investing in yourself and building a brand you believe in.

Episode 145: Episode 145 of The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Scott Shute

Scott is a keynote speaker, author, executive coach, and teacher. 

"Have you ever wondered "How can I be a good person and also do well at work?" I specialize in combining the practicalities of leading in the modern business world with the wisdom of ancient traditions to help individuals and companies be leaders in conscious business. 

This results in businesses thriving financially while providing their customer's long-term value and leaving employees feeling inspired and whole. When done consciously, work can be a part of the collective healing that needs to take place in the world.

After twenty-five years of customer-oriented leadership and executive roles, and three years leading Mindfulness and Compassion programs at LinkedIn, I'm now helping other leaders and companies transform, becoming more compassionate and effective. I work with leaders who want to both do good in the world, while helping their organizations and employees thrive. It’s a role in which I get to utilize my entire skill set, experience, and passions.

I’ve been studying and practicing mindfulness and related wisdom teachings since I was thirteen years old, and teaching since I was in college. In this work we get to explore the possibility of human potential, helping employees become the very best version of themselves. With mindfulness, we’re building employees’ capabilities around resilience, self-awareness and growth mindset. With Compassion, we’re working to expand employees’ capability and capacity for service. Ultimately, the intention is to build these practices and consciousness into the very fabric of a company – how we develop products, how we sell, how we service – in a way that serves our employees as well as our customers. My operations lens helps me focus on scaling the work we do."

Episode 128: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Kim Heismann with the Bail Project

Kim shares with us her experience with the Bail Project.

The use of bail bonds is a widely accepted but dangerous practice in the United States. Watch the video to see my story. I haven't been able to sleep at night knowing people are treated like this every day, especially our black and brown brothers and sisters.

To limit this practice, we are raising money for The Bail Project . Every dollar will help bring this unnecessary and traumatic experience for pre-trial detainees, still innocent until proven guilty, closer to an end - both immediately and, later, permanently.

More information about The Bail Project: The Bail Project is a national nonprofit organization that provides free bail assistance to thousands of low-income Americans every year, reuniting families and restoring the presumption of innocence.

We believe that paying bail for someone in need is an act of resistance against a system that criminalizes race and poverty. It is an act of solidarity with local communities and movements for lowering rates of incarceration.

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

His LinkedIn:

Taken from his website
"I'm a coach and podcaster on a mission to help ambitious Asians overcome fear and limitations to grow businesses and create generational wealth without overwhelm and burnout to chart their path towards happiness and success. 

I worked in Finance chasing my career goals only to go through multiple burnouts, depression, and anxiety attacks - struggling mentally and emotionally and questioning where I had gone wrong.

But that pain took me on a journey to seek answers, and as I came across solutions, I wondered, "WHY hadn't school taught us these ideas and principles on happiness and success?". I felt that school failed to teach us the lessons that we REALLY needed to become happy and successful. 

The BIG DREAM is to TRANSFORM EDUCATION to make it more relevant, but I’m starting off with my coaching business by helping ONE person at a time.

And if this doesn’t happen during my lifetime, I’m working to inspire the next generation to make a dent in their own ways."

Here is a link to The View from Within: Spiritual Pathways to Happiness (Unshakable Happiness Series)

“Man up!”

“Be a man!”

“Are you man enough?”

Well… can you? Are you?

Are you sure of who you are as a man? Maybe you’ve given it a lot of thought and struggled. Maybe it never occurred to you to explore this topic! Either way, it is now time to think deeply of who we are and who we want to be in the world. And that includes expressions of our gender identity.

The concept of what makes a man, what really defines his masculinity, has been the topic of much debate, exploration, and controversy in recent years.

In this compilation of insightful essays, our group of thought leaders and men reflect on what shaped their own masculinity.

Dream with them of a future where masculinity is no longer a topic around the battle of self, but instead embraces a vision of healthy strength and balance, and a strong sense of who you can be as a modern man in a constantly changing and challenging world.

We explore topics such as:

Defining the word masculinity - both its negative and positive uses
Moving beyond toxic masculinity
The role of ethnicity and racism
Expressions of faith
Relating to the same and to opposite genders

Episode 122: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/James Kawainui (Hawaiian Healer)

Join us in a conversation about masculinity, healing, peace, and trusting our intuition.

Taken from his website.

As far back as my early 20’s, I had an unconscious desire to help people through healing. For reasons I didn’t understand at the time, I was able to look at someone and know where their pain was and how to help it go away. One evening 15 years ago, I was literally “tapped in the back of my head” and a voice said, loud and clear, “It’s time to go home!” That was the moment that changed my life forever. I had been living on the “mainland” for over 20 years. I was married with two grown children. I was an executive in a multi-million dollar corporation where I’d been working for over 17 years. I had what many people would consider a successful and good life. Nevertheless, I walked into my boss’ office the very next day and quit my job. I sold everything and moved back to Hawaii. I lived in a shack on the beach for three years. I went to sleep with sound of the waves and the song of the whales. I emptied myself. Eventually, my wife and I divorced. Everything I thought I knew crumbled away. That was the beginning of my “new” life.

I began to practice deep listening. Listening to my inner knowingness. Listening that told me when to go over and talk to someone. When to sit and be quiet. When to move. By listening, I surrendered to the call to leave Hawaii and go to New Zealand. It was there I found my teacher and the healing practices of the Maori elders. Through these teachings and the deepening of my listening, I began to hear the voices of my Kupuna (my ancestors). They told me they had been waiting to talk to me for a long time. I surrendered to the process and found that the more I listened, the more they talked to me and the more I learned to trust and follow their guidance.

In my work, my Kupuna tell me what a person is feeling and how the energy is running through their bodies. They show me what kind of “story” they are holding on to and the patterns that hold that story in place. They point to the places on someone’s body that are in pain or where the energy is blocked and they show me exactly how to help release it.

I feel blessed by the gift of the love and guidance of my Kupuna. In every aspect of my life, they show me how to love everyone and everything. They are the reason I am here. They are the reason I have dedicated my life to helping people.

Episode 119: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Gavin Masumiya, CPC, ELI-MP (Founder of FlowFam)
Gavin helps progressive startups create a highly connected, inclusive & motivated team.
Gavin is a very intentional leader and I'm glad we crossed paves.

Check out his Instagram.

This is achieved through group coaching, communication exercises, and the timeless power of music.


"My name is Seibo Shen and I am the founder of Vapexhale, Hanu Labs, and BRNR Lab. I recently completed Gavin’s Find Your EDGE program and it has been a game-changer for me. The first week, we did the energetic release and I realized how little I allowed myself to vocalize certain emotions like frustration and anger. I realized that I held a lot of that tension in my shoulders, neck, and traps, and now that I have been doing those energetic releases, those areas are much more relaxed. Gavin is very skilled in creating safe spaces for you to explore all the different dimensions of yourself. Many times, you will go to areas that you didn’t know you had and that is the beauty with working with him. My life was already great before I did this, I have an awesome job, my wife is my soulmate, my kids are little angels, and I have a great tribe around me. Working with Gavin enhanced all of those things and after going through his program, I highly recommend it for anyone at any stage of your life. I truly believe, every day you wait to sign up for this course, is another day you delay finding the true purpose and meaning of your life."

Seibo Shen, Serial Entrepreneur featured in Forbes and Business Insider

"As a psychologist, I've been trained to observe human behavior and social interactions. Gavin presents with the epitome of a masterful conversationalist. He understands the art of communication and has a delicate but assertive approach to his craft. Gavin was able to help me frame my thought process in a way that would keep me accountable for meeting my goals. Through our sessions, he was very supportive and always knew how to acknowledge my efforts and perspective in a positive manner. His style made me feel comfortable opening up and be vulnerable with my issues. His coaching mirrors some of my own personal techniques with aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Solution Focus Therapy. I was very happy that I went through this process because it helped me discover ways of coaching myself. I would definitely recommend Gavin to anyone that would like to restructure their lifestyle and become a better version of themselves."

Episode 110: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Ryan Hall (Redefining Masculinity- part3)
I'm excited to have Ryan Hall back on the podcast his chapter in Redefining Masculinity.

Here is a link to the book we just published:

We appreciate your vulnerability and authenticity in discussing some of the darkest moments in your life with the world.

Ryan D. Hall is an author, podcaster, and life coach for Kings. As a coach, he's committed to supporting men to get into their hearts and Be Kings- the heart-centered leaders of the world.

As a storyteller and podcaster, he's committed to sharing stories of power, redemption, resilience, and heart.

These were some of the passages that really stood out to me.

"But that's not my truth.

My truth is that I AM the sensitive writer with a heart of hold. My truth is that I carry the quiet magnetism and charisma of my grandfathers. My truth is that I am a natural performer like my dad.

The measure of who I am as a man is what I see in the mirror every day. I don't have to change what I am to be my masculine best.

All I have to do is show up and Be Ryan.

I'll never have a rabid stadium with 100 thousand people chanting my name and cheering for me on national TV.

But I'm just as much of a man as any Heisman Winner."

Alex Rado is one of my teammates at LinkedIn Learning. He's such a positive and fun guy to be around. If you want to listen to a light and fun conversation with a guy who knows how to brighten up the place take a listen.

"Alex Rado continues to impress me. Alex’s sales ambition is through-the-roof and his growth mindset is inspirational. Beginning at OU (where he committed to learning the art and science of sales), Alex takes every opportunity to grow into an exceptional sales professional. Alex is organized and tenacious and goes into each week with a list of goals that he shares with his mapped AEs to ensure that we’re working towards the same endgame. He eagerly seeks out feedback and creates a game plan to implement that feedback. Best of all, the guy is a pleasure to work with! LinkedIn’s Global Sales Org is lucky to have Alex on the team." -Grace McGill

"Alex is simply an individual that makes those around him more successful both personally and professionally. He sets a terrific example through servant leadership that is contagious among those alongside him. It is no surprise that the Ohio University College of Business selected Alex to meet with prospective Ohio University students and their families' to provide valuable insight about his experiences at the university. This role allows Alex to leverage his enthusiasm, ability to inspire, and unparalleled communication abilities. It has been a pleasure being a peer of Alex's at Ohio University and any individual will be lucky to work alongside him in the future." -Liam Moore

Thank you for your leadership and I appreciate how you make coming to work a true joy. I appreciate your friendship my dude!

Episode 99: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Lily Youn (Director of Sales - the Art of Management)
Lily is a Director of Sales at TeleVet located in Austin, TX. She now leads a new business sales team on a mission to restore work-play balance for veterinarians providing peace of mind for their clients.

Prior to TeleVet, she was a Director of Sales Development at Cision.

She worked her way up from being a Sales Development Representative to being a Senior SDR, Team Lead, then promoted to Manager of SDRs and then Manager II for SDRs at TrendKite which ended up being acquired by Cision.

She graduated from the University of Texas and has studied abroad in Japan.

These are some of her testimonials as a manager.

"Lily is one of the most hard-working, dedicated, and helpful leaders I've ever had the pleasure of learning from. She quickly rose through the ranks from SDR Manager to Director of Sales Development in just a few short months after she hired me on as an SDR at TrendKite (now Cision). In that time, I quickly learned how to have thoughtful conversations, manage my pipeline, and simply become a better sales rep. Her ability to drive results and lead by example is why I recommend Lily for any leadership role in any industry."

Lily is a fantastic leader. On the SDR team, we were always looking for Lily's feedback knowing that she was a master of her craft and also one of the most successful reps in the history of TrendKite. I’m grateful for my time to work underneath Lily and know she will continue to build great sales teams wherever she goes.

Check out this episode if you are curious about stepping into a managerial role and the skills and philosophy that has helped her promote many of her SDRs.

Episode 98: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Nick Tan(Agency Profits)
Nick is the Founder of Digital Contractor and founded the Agency Profits company.

Check out his Facebook group and you can join his community there.

Nick Tan has spent millions in advertising, Launched over 170 start-ups.
Successfully helped his clients hit 5 & 6 figures

Taken from his website:

So, what’s my secret?
I call it the New Age Agency Method™

I’ve never understood starting an agency the traditional way, hiring a bunch of employees, work with every type of business & have an expensive office.

Worst of all, only yielding 5-10% profit, with thousands spent in start-up costs.

My method focuses on ONE service, ONE niche & ONE solution.
The result?

Almost 100% margins, no employees & totally scalable!

Want to know the best part?

Completely location independent, I’ve been able to live all over the world while running my agency.

I have specifically designed this to help you start your own online business from scratch with ZERO business or technical experience.
What we do and teach, WORKS. It’s that simple.

Here is a bit more about Nick Tan.

I grew up in Malaysia for the first few years of my life and then moved to Canada.

So my family basically gave up everything in order to give me a better life.

Never had much growing up, so my whole life was aimed at having a high-paying job to secure my future.

For a long time, I really believed that this was my only path.

I realized I never wanted to be a lawyer.

So, I quit my 9-5 at a tech company and ditched law school.

I started my own digital advertising agency and have grown it to a point where I was able to travel to 15+ countries in the last 3 years while earning multiple 6 figures.

In those 4 years, I had a lot of downs but a lot of ups as well.

I didn’t have clients for months.

On certain days I really questioned my decision.

I had no choice but to make my business work.

It was either I prove everyone wrong and become successful….or prove everyone right and go back to a 9-5.

With my back against the wall, I was lucky and blessed to be able to prove everyone wrong.

Throughout the last couple years while I was living in Asia (couldn’t stay due to rona...)

I met a lot of people who wanted to replicate what I was doing.

So I started working with people to launch their own agencies.

After working with over 150 people over the last 2 years to launch their agencies, I’ve boiled it down to a simple system I call the “New Age Agency”.

Episode 95: The Davidson Hang Podcast (Brandon Ngai interviews Davidson Hang)
In this episode, we switch it up and Brandon- one of my closest friends interviews me.

These are the questions my friends and family have asked me about vulnerability, gratitude, self-development, community, relationships, and work ethic.

I would like to share gratitude for Aditya, Brandon, Edwin, Christina, Jeff, Juan David, Juan Camilo, Mike, Spencer, and Will.

I cried when watching the gratitude video that you have all made for me.

What was your initial motive to start your podcast and start interviewing people?

You’ve completed almost 100 interviews on your podcast so far. Edwin is curious – out of all of the interviews you’ve done, whether it’s lesson’s learned from others or lessons learned from simply interacting with so many people….what are some of your biggest takeaways?

Your sister, Christina, said that your vulnerability has changed a lot over time. Aditya mentioned that it’s one of the qualities he admires most about you, especially since you’re a man AND Asian, both of which don’t usually show much vulnerability. How has your sense of vulnerability evolved over time?

One thing that I find incredible about you, is the fact that I know you have hundreds, if not thousands of really good friends and meaningful relationships. Yet somehow, even though I know that… you have this ability to make each and every person you interact with like they’re the only person in the world. I’m just amazed, like how are you always SO Present in every single one of your interactions?

Someone recently told me, a healthy relationship isn’t a destination, it’s constant work. What were some of your biggest hardships with Sammy and how’d you work through them?

How would you define, being a good partner, or a good husband?

Now that you’re married, what are you currently working on to take your relationship to the next level?

Understanding your relationship with your father. Edwin and I were talking and he had a great question. What does being a good father mean to you?

What is it about Sammy that makes you want to fight through all of the hardships with her?

Work Ethic:
Will say’s that one of the things he admires the most about you is your work ethic. He said he feels overwhelmed when he has like 20 things on his to-do list, meanwhile, you probably have 50 at any time. Between writing a book, sending out handwritten notes, coaching, doing your podcast, being a top performer at LinkedIn, and being a loving husband… how do you manage it all?

In sales, it’s super common to move from job to job… how do you know when it’s time to move on?

Jenny told me you’ve always been a hustler – that you worked job after job since before the age of 16. Can you tell me about where your work ethic came from and some of these odd jobs when you were younger?

What are some of the biggest lessons you’ve taken away from all of your jobs?

You’ve done a TON of self-development, whether it’s Landmark, reading books, therapy, meditation, etc… Even with all of the self-development you’ve done… what areas of yourself, or your life, are you currently focused on growing and developing?

How would you define masculinity and how has it changed throughout his life?

Have you had any big turning points in your life? If so, can you expand one them?

I want to talk about the community for a bit and what it means to you. Can you tell me about the Asian Alliance Program you’ve created at LinkedIn?

Can you share some of your thoughts on Asians in Sales?

Your sense of gratitude is amazing. How does gratitude play into your day to day life?

How do you practice gratitude on a daily basis?

What are you most grateful for today?

What’s next? Anything

"Evan is the most quintessential example of a "Relationship Manager" that I've ever had the privilege to partner with over the past 10 years of my career.

In healthcare, relationships are the core of our mission and vision - our entire model of care is based on the importance and vitality of the relationship between the care-giver and the patient. The way that Evan approaches our relationship is no different. His ability to quickly build relationships, understand/assess our challenges, needs, goals and then suggest recommendations that are right for Mount Sinai have been paramount to the successes and wins we've celebrated together.

Evan and the entire team at LinkedIn continue to bring forward solutions that not only help us connect with the right talent at the right time, but also more global solutions that will be critical in our quest to revolutionize patient care here in NYC and beyond.

Thank You Evan - while I proudly consider you a partner in this journey we are on together, it's my privilege to also call you a friend. Keep up the great work!"

"I have had the pleasure working with Evan for the past four years. I have seen him rise up the ranks at, developing into one of the premiere sales representatives in the company.

Evan has the innate ability to take complex ideas and translate them to clients in a manner that is thoughtful and applicable.

He is a star on the rise and has the opportunity to be true leader at any company that is fortunate enough to have him."

He showed tremendous ability to work on multiple tasks simultaneously and deliver on extremely time-sensitive deadlines. He was also always willing to help out the team in any way necessary throughout his time as a Project Coordinator, and this made him a great asset to the Economic Growth sector. I would greatly enjoy working with him again and would recommend him for any future opportunities."

Episode 91: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/John Kenny (The Relationship Guy)
Join us one of the most important topics in our lives.

John Kenny is a Relationship Expert and he helps Single High Achievers Struggling to Find a Great Relationship.

Relationship Coaching with a difference...

He is the Founder of Interpersonal Relationship Coaching (IRC), Speaker, Author and is Documentary Maker.

Taken from his profile.

"You know that relationships can be difficult and distracting, stopping you from focusing on yourself, your business and interfering with your ability to function.

Have you felt manipulated into doing what previous partners wanted all of the time, was it all about them?

Perhaps you couldn't be yourself because they expected you to act a certain way and didn't accept you when you were trying to be you.

Were they constantly on the phone, needing to know where you were, what you were doing, who you were with?

All of these things just got overwhelming at times, you didn't know which way to turn or what you were supposed to be doing, or who you were supposed to be?

Now you have given up on finding someone due to those difficulties you have experienced in the past and want to know how to avoid these relationships in the future?

Have you been focusing on your business/career and now want to balance out your life with a quality relationship?

Or you have other reasons why you haven't found something easy, fulfilling and committed?

You have achieved in life and now I can help you to find the relationship you want moving forwards.

'I started working with John very recently as I realised during lockdown that it would have been great to have someone to spend some quality time with, not out of desperation or that I felt lonely, I just knew something was missing and I had neglected that side of my life.

John has helped me realise why I had chosen to take this path. I now know I was avoiding relationships because of the disastrous outcomes in my past.

I didn't realise I was so complex!
I am now looking forward to meeting someone knowing I will never need to go through that again'. JS

As an ex-international athlete I understand commitment and dedication, but also how to self-sabotage!

I offer a unique service because of my own life and client experiences, as well as my professional qualifications.

If I had a coach to help me understand myself and improve what I was doing then I would have achieved what I was capable of and avoided years of pain in very difficult relationships."

Excited to introduce to you all, David Wodnicki.

He is humor, fun, partnership, joy, and has a genuinely authentic way of being that makes you want to be around him.

He is a little bit about David.

"I have embraced the same principle from the first company I have worked for: Relationships matter, and if you take care of your employees and your customers, great things will come.

My passion for building relationships has brought me to my current role as one of the first Microsoft LinkedIn overlay positions. As a Microsoft Relationship Account Strategist, I help educate financial service organizations on how to leverage our powerful new digital selling software to strategically engage with the right person, the best path in, and the right thing to say in order to drive new business and revenue.

Having access to the most powerful professional network in the world enables Microsoft and LinkedIn to radically change the way our customers sell."

David is currently a Microsoft Relationship Account Strategist in the Financial Services sector. He was an Enterprise Relationship Manager and an Enterprise Account Executive with LinkedIn Sales Solutions.

Prior to LinkedIn, he was an Enterprise Sales Manager with Avalara. He's been a director of sales and Business Development with Jacoby & Meyers, National Account Manager w/ DHL.

Here is what people say about David.

Michael: "David is one of the most hard-working and persistent sales representatives that I have had the pleasure of working closely with. His dedication to creating and maintaining business relationships has resulted in him being one of, if not the top outside sales rep within our company. David's commitment to a high-level of performance has helped our department establish several of our most valuable accounts."

Michael N.:"David is one of the most talented sales professionals that I have ever worked with. He is a true consultant to his clients, and his sales numbers always show it. He understands it is all about the customer; David gives his customers top notched service, and is also an invaluable resource. His customers look to him for questions about our products and services and business questions outside the realm of our business. To me that show that David brings ultimate value to the equation. With that said, his customers are honored to work with him, and his teammates look up to him, and I would most definitely recommend him for anyone lucky enough to scoop him up!"

Thank you for sharing your wisdom with the world.

(v): to unlock hidden, untapped, and unrealized potential.
In her own words.
"My mentor taught me the importance of goals and high expectations. From there I learned to strive for excellence and to have the courage to try. I learned that people want to be led and led well and will rise to the occasion to do the impossible. I learned to be a leader.

I became the first Asian American woman in P&G's Supply Chain function to be promoted to the top 1% of management. I was the first woman manager of Japanese descent to lead a supply chain organization in P&G Japan. I had an amazing corporate career because once upon a time, someone saw the extraordinary in me, something I didn't see in myself, and unlocked my potential.

Now I'm on a mission to unlock potential.

In her own words:
"I have a bias for empowerment, kindness, giving, open access to information, and data-driven action. I have a knack for measuring the very hard to measure and aspire to inspire those around me.

I love the mission of Sales Enablement and believe the time spent to be a force multiplier for revenue-generating efforts. I feel thankful every day for the opportunity to grow killer go-to-market teams and the enterprise SaaS technology companies and clients they support.

And how I see my leadership style, said by Clayton M. Christensen much better than I could:

"Instead of telling him what to think, I taught him how to think -- and then he reached what I felt was the correct decision on his own."

I'm grateful for our friendship and our conversations are always so thought-provoking. We discussed many topics about burn out in sales and diversity within sales leadership.

Episode 79: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/ Hayden Humphrey
Oh man! I think you enjoy this convo with Hayden Humphrey.

This one is for all of the recovering people pleasers out there.

We had a conversation about being able to say No, disrupting the scripts in our lives based on societal norms, and doing what other people want us to do.

Here is a blurb from Hayden.

"I spent years "doing the right thing." I got all the accolades, got the great job at the great company, lived in a great city... but everything felt off.

I was frustrated, anxious, and felt like I was wasting my time and potential at a job that looked good on paper, but that I didn't really enjoy all that much. I decided I would rather TRY to leave and do my own thing (and possibly fail), than spend anymore time feeling stuck, stressed, and straight up bored. So In 2017, I jumped...

Now I help people like me make the jump into a life by their own design. One where they:

- Get to do whatever they want with their days.
- Feel fulfilled, empowered, and like their making a difference in the world.
- Create the wealth they want the way they want it.
- Have a hell of a lot more fun, and totally eliminate burnout and overwhelm.

My clients in transform their lives completely - creating an external reality that is a direct reflection of who they are at the core."

Episode 72: The Davidson Hang Podcast w/Julie Tran(Founder of Leading AF)
Julie is one of my dearest friends. I remember her helping me out during my most dire times. Her random act of kindness shifted the way I started to see the world. She helped me with another breakthrough of being able to ask for support.

This is why she is so passionate about her leadership coaching practice.

Why am I doing this? Look around - how many Asians do we see represented in senior leadership positions, starting businesses, or just going for their dreams? When you do, it's the exception and not the norm. I'm CONVINCED this is largely due to generations of cultural conditioning which has ingrained limiting beliefs in our subconscious, creating a thick bamboo ceiling on our potential. These same hallmark qualities that we love and hold dear (like working hard and being humble) have given us MASSIVE success, AND let's be honest - it also LIMITS us.

Check this out if you are looking for inspiration and good vibes all around.

Julie is one of my dearest friends. I remember her helping me out during my most dire times. Her random act of kindness shifted the way I started to see the world. She helped me with another breakthrough of being able to ask for support.

If you would like to connect with us, do so below.

These my top ten takeaways from our conversation during episode 72 of the Davidson Hang Podcast w/ Julie Tran

For context, Julie and I first met through the Chinese Business Advisors networking group that Mindi and Monica put together. I met them when I was work at Alphaserve Technologies.

I remember going through some tough times; I was going through depression and felt lost. I remember feeling like my life was not working, and I put together a GoFundMe. Her kindness touched my heart and opened me to being able to ask for help. She also inspired me to get deeply involved with Landmark- a life coaching and personal empowerment program where I volunteered and met her through that community again years later.

Her being and leadership were evident when she kindly paid for another person's transformation, whom she just met that day. Keep in mind, these programs are not exactly cheap, but so worth it as some of my most significant shifts have occurred during Landmark seminars and programs.

1. Laws of Attraction- she helped get me into positive thinking and manifesting your dreams.

2. Never give up on your dreams- she was not able to have kids and it really caused her to be sad and down in life but she pursued being a foster parent and it has really transformed her in a big way.

3. Lose yourself in service of others- Julie and I sit on the associate board of the Orphans Future Alliance and being able to know that you are impacting so many less fortunate than you are puts you in a good state of mind because at the end of the day you know you make a big difference in the world.

3. Practice being raw, authentic, and vulnerable. Of course, it's easy to criticize and judge others. Anytime I see myself being hard on others, I know that its a reflection of myself, and when I say anything about others, it's also how I feel about myself. That's why every interaction with Julie is filled with praise and positivity because at the end of the day, we support each other, and leadership is sometimes a lonely journey, especially if you are disrupting something as big as a movement as breaking the Bamboo ceiling.

4. Invest in yourself- She's committed to so many coaching and personal empowerment programs. It shows as she is growing and evolving every day, every month, every year.

5. Build a community- She's created a Facebook group and has fostered a community. When you empower others' success, there is no better feeling in life, knowing that you've helped sourced so many people to reach for their dreams and step outside their comfort zone.

6. Don't be afraid to challenge the status quo- She doesn't always have the most comfortable conversations with herself and others, but is it worth it to tell the world how painful it was to not be able to have kids? Yes, because there are so many people in the world that struggle with the shame of not being able to have kids. She's open to sharing the beautiful experience of being a foster parent. No, it's not easy, but it's so rewarding.

7. Take time to yourself to unwind and have fun- I remember her doing a silly dancing challenge and laughing/smiling when I saw her doing that. Life is hard enough- take some time to relax and have a good time. Don't forget that we are fortunate to be alive right now. Despite the circumstances, it's always a blessing to be alive and healthy to read this.

8. Enroll others in a mission bigger than yourself- All of the work we've for the Orphans Future alliance, she's helping others, and I know she's helped other members join the associate board and in sharing her passions- others being interested in this journey as well. Never did I think that I would help out Orphans in Southeast Asia in my life but here we are doing things that I would never even think about.

10. Put family first- Despite all of the fantastic things she's up to, she always puts family first, and it sets an excellent example for the kids that no matter what, my love for you comes first.
