Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 23 “The Diderot Effect”

In the theme of the Money, Motivation & More podcast – this episode can fall into the “Money” or “Motivation” category – depending on your perspective. In “The Diderot Effect” I’m sharing a conversation from the excellent “Debt Free In 30″podcast with host Doug Hoyes (http://debtfreein30.libsyn.com/) where Doug and I discussed the French writer Denis Diderot and how his life changed dramatically over the gift of a dressing gown (ok, it was the 1700’s… but still 100% applicable today…). It’s really a discussion of spiralling consumption, how to avoid it and if you can bear it – how to stop […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 22 “Lessons From An Aluminum Boat”

In the theme of the Money, Motivation & More podcast – this episode falls into the “More” category. In “Lessons From An Aluminum Boat” I’m sharing what happened during a recent morning spent fishing with my Dad, and how those couple of hours are now affecting how I look at my business. I cover three specific ideas: 1) Fish where the fish live; 2) Engage in consistent action; and 3) If it isn’t working – change it. I suspect it will add some insights into prospecting (if you’re a financial advisor or entrepreneur…) or marketing or perhaps even dealing with […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 21 “What Is The Goal?”

Thanks for your patience loyal podcast listeners – my new TV show “WE Talk Money” has some overlap to the podcast in terms of content – and as such – in “What Is The Goal” I’m sharing a conversation with Mike Rice from Investors Group Financial Services and focuses entirely on Goals – in short – if it’s goal-related – we’re talking about it. During our short time together Mike and I only scratched the surface of “goals” and to be honest, in Chapter 5 of “Rich is a State of Mind” called “What is the Goal?” I could only […]

Our conversation is around the concept of leadership as it relates […]

Money, Motivation & More with Robert Gignac – Podcast Episode 19 “Life 2.0 & Scams”

Much of my last two months has been spent helping my father adjust to Life 2.0 – coming to grips with life after losing your spouse of 56 years. It’s not the household stuff like groceries, cooking, cleaning, etc. It’s the financial side – banking, paying bills, mail and phone calls – all of which were Mom’s domain. In addition to these issues, I’m trying to make Dad aware of all of the scam issues that seniors need to be concerned with. For those of you who are helping parents (or grandparents…) with Life 2.0 & Scams, I hope that […]
