  1. I really liked this episode James and Ezra, thank you. James, your acknowledgement of how much you were learning yourself was wonderful, I have noticed how much you are acknowledging others lately and I think it is creating an even more thriving community.

    Also, the fear topic was great. It is critical to understand that much human motivation is avoiding the negative rather than seeking the positive. I liked the story about Joe, that is a great analogy for creating a relationship with tribe. Joe is essentially “other focussed”, not forcing his own agenda or goals, but giving the other person what they want and need and building trust. That way people come to you, it is an excellent strategy.

    Bullying is an extreme defensive tactic. Bullies go on the offense hard and early, to distract others from their own real insecurities.

    Thanks guys, this is really a cut above any other business podcast.

    Fear is only the perception of what change may bring. I call it the perception deception.

  4. Hi James and Ezra.

    I wanted to make a comment about you guys reading reviews from iTunes, and talking about people who have left comments on your blog.

    I think talking about reviews and comments is a good thing. And I don’t see anything wrong with you reading or discussing the positive comments that were left about you or the podcast. I don’t take it as you boasting, or talking good about yourself. (Sorry Timbo) I think it is good to interact with your audience, it gives you more credibility, and shows listeners that others are here and also listening.

    And for me, it is always fun and a nice surprise when you hear your own comment read or commented on, on your podcast.

    Take care.

    • Thank you Eric – a lot of people say that it makes them feel special – and I suspect that makes it more powerful for all of us. Also – it si a two way community here since Hipster Ezra has that communal vibe happening. The more people who participate the better.
