The Houston Midtown Chapter of The Society for Financial Awareness Presents MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

The U.S. government is trying to figure out what moves you -- specifically what moves you to get off the couch and sign up for federal benefits.

The Obama administration is dipping into research in behavioral economics and psychology to scrutinize federal documents, websites and procedures to get a better sense of what’s working -- and what’s not working -- to make the most of government programs from college aid to veterans benefits.

Today we were joined by Chief Behavioral Strategist of Hoffeld Group, David Hoffeld.

David Hoffeld is the Chief Behavioral Strategist at Hoffeld Group, a research-based sales training, coaching and consulting firm.   David works with companies throughout North America, showing them how to align their sales message with the findings of behavioral science.  He is a respected thought leader who is widely regarded as the #1 authority on integrating behavioral science and sales.  David has also been recently been featured in Fortune, U.S. News & World Report, CBS Radio, Fox News Radio and more.

Our words can move other people from a fear-based mindset in which they see obstacles as insurmountable, to a positive mindset where they see that change is possible, get unstuck, and take action. What makes the difference is what we choose to broadcast. Using scientifically proven communication strategies to ripple out positive change to others, we increase their happiness and success at work, as well as our own, instantly making us more effective leaders.

New research from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience shows that small shifts to the way we communicate can create big ripple effects on business outcomes, including 31% higher productivity, 25% greater performance ratings, 37% higher sales, and 23% lower levels of stress.

Today we were joined by Michelle Gielan, Author of the new book Broadcasting Happiness.

Michelle Gielan, national CBS News anchor turned positive psychology researcher, is the bestselling author of Broadcasting Happiness. Michelle is the Founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research and is partnered with Arianna Huffington to study how transformative stories fuel success.

Multilevel marketers take pains to distinguish their businesses (which are legal) from pyramid schemes (which are not). In a pyramid, recruitment is everything. People pay to participate, and are rewarded by finding others willing to pay to join. At some point the supply of new recruits dries up and the pyramid collapses.

Today we were joined by CEO and Founder of Miles Development Industries Corporation, Anthony Miles. We discussed Multi-Level Marketing AKA Network Marketing and Ponzi Schemes, and what consumers need to know to protect themselves. Run Away!!!!!!

“The most important thing about art is to work. Nothing else matters except sitting down every day and trying.”
Steven Pressfield, The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

Today we were joined live in the studio by Tod Waters of Junker Designs. We discussed his artistic endeavors with Junker Designs, current music projects and the Junker event at Dirt bar tomorrow night.

Tod's Bio :

Was born at St Vincents in Manhattan and grew up in Houston, Texas on a steady diet of Ultraman, horror movies, war films, and Star Wars. I spent a lot of time drawing and exploring in the creek by my house. At around the age of 8 I started getting in trouble in school for drawing on all my papers and my desk. In high school I was getting into trouble for wearing biker boots and painting on my clothes, so I quit and started playing in punk rock bands. During that time, I started sewing more and put legs of jeans on my jackets for arms, drew, hand painted , silk screened, and dyed all my clothes. I continued to mutilate clothes when I moved to LA in 2000 I started to experiment with aging processes, and patternmaking. I made a vest at a friend’s house, Lenny Kravitz saw it, bought it, and that’s how it all started.
