How Using Analytics Helped a Standup Comic Get an Amazon Prime Comedy Special
META PERFORMANCE SHOW: In this episode, Jason Jaggard has a conversation with comedian Jen Fulwiler about unapologetically chasing what makes you feel alive. After becoming a bestselling author and a host on Sirius XM, all while raising six kids, Jennifer continued to strive towards what lit her blue flame. In this case, it was pursuing a career in standup comedy. Utilizing a tireless work ethic, her broadcast experience, and a whole lot of spreadsheets, she proceeded to do in 12 months what takes most people years: successfully self-produce a live tour, hosting sellout after sellout. Jen wants us to remember: “Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Jen Fulwiler is a standup comic, bestselling author, and mom of six who is currently touring the country with her Minivan Fabulous standup comedy tour. She was the host of the daily talk radio show The Jen Fulwiler Show on the national SiriusXM network, and when she left to launch her own podcast, This Is Jen, it debuted in the iTunes Comedy Top 10. She has been featured on the Today Show and CNN, and her viral social media sketches have racked up millions of views.

From Overcoming Addiction to Becoming Kobe Bryant + Michael Jordan's Mindfulness Coach
One of the best mindfulness coaches in the world, George Mumford discusses sobriety and addiction, his love for philosophy, and "the alarming possibility of being able." George is renowned for his work with professional athletes Kobe Bryant and Micheal Jordan, who credit him for transforming their on-court leadership. From former head coach Phil Jackson and players from the legendary championship Chicago Bulls teams in the 90s, George has worked with countless athletes, Olympians, executives, and artists over the decades. Novus Global coaches Jason Jaggard and Dan Leffelaar talk with George about how creating space between stimulus and response can slow down the perceptual process to help anyone in the moment. George shares compelling stories about the false narrative of self-doubt that causes people to accept negative thoughts rather than investigate their validity. The trio discusses Tom Brady's short-lived retirement, and Jason opines why he prefers Star Trek over Star Wars.RESOURCES--George Mumford's book - The Mindful Athlete --All the Smoke, podcast with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson --The Mandolorian, television seriesLearn more about George: GeorgeMumford.com | YouTube: At Home With George | Online Course: The Mindful Athlete Secret to Pure Performance | MasterClass: Dealing with Anxiety As The World Re-OpensNovus Global is a tribe of elite executive coaches who work with Fortune 500 Companies, Professional Athletes, World Renowned Artists and Business Leaders to create lives, teams and companies that go beyond high-performance.Book a free consultation with a Novus Global coach here: http://novus.global/now/This podcast is produced by Rainbow Creative with Matthew Jones as Senior Producer, Producer Stephen Selnick, and Jeremy Davidson as Editor and Audio engineer.

How to Overcome Indecisiveness + Develop a Clear Vision, with Matthew Jones

The Operations Machine Behind Coaching
ON COACHING | Coaches David Gerber and Chris North interview the Novus Global Operations team, an infrastructure of behind-the-scenes support that they say has been vital to their coaching practices. They explain how "solo-preneur" coaching can be isolating and unnecessarily taxing, in contrast to joining a firm with a support team that allows the coaches to prioritize their client care, business development and continued education. Operations team members Tricia Harding, Jaralyn Monkman and Amara Ononiwu discuss the gold ceiling, automation and their approach to helping the coaches get ahead of the curve. They take us through their process upon contract closing, corporate trainings and how they help companies learn and sustain new tools to enhance company culture. The goal of Operations is to ensure every step of the process is seamless, says Tricia, so that the coaches can serve the world powerfully and without burden. Novus Global is a tribe of elite executive coaches who work with Fortune 500 Companies, Professional Athletes, World Renowned Artists and Business Leaders to create lives, teams and companies that go beyond high-performance.Book a free consultation with a Novus Global coach here: http://novus.global/now/ This podcast is produced by Rainbow Creative with Matthew Jones as Senior Producer and Jeremy Davidson as Editor and Audio engineer.
