TED Tuesday: Remembering Scott Dinsmore— How to find and do work you love | TEDxGoldenGatePark (2D)

"But doing the impossible and pushing our limits, because there are 2 reasons why people don’t do things: one is because they tell themselves they can’t do them and the other is people around them tell them, they can’t do. Either way we start to believe it. Either we give up or we never start in the first place."





Good Morning Folks,

Today's speaker, Scott Dinsmore, an Alamo, California native, entrepreneur and adventurer, was killed last year while climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, a feat his family says was to fulfill a lifelong dream.

Dinsmore, who was hiking with his wife, died doing what he loved, something he preached through his work, on a blog on his website and in the widely viewed (3+MN) Ted Talk that follows, recorded in 2012.

Before he reached the summit, a cascade of boulders rolled down the mountain and one of them hit and killed the 33-year-old.

In his blog post Scott Dinsmore said he almost decided against booking the Tanzania trip because he didn't think he could go on a digital break.

"How ridiculous is that? To pass up an adventure I've talked about for years -- because I'd convinced myself I couldn't disconnect. Or more truthfully, because I couldn't find the courage to do it. That would have been a tragedy."

Scott Dinsmore quit a job that made him miserable, and spent the next four years wondering how to find work that was joyful and meaningful. He shares what he learned in this deceptively simple talk about finding out what matters to you — and then getting started doing it.

Then Scott made it his mission is to change the world by helping people find what excites them and build a career around the work only they are capable of doing. He is a career change strategist whose demoralizing experience at a Fortune 500 job launched his quest to understand why 80% of adults hate the work they do, and more importantly, to identify what the other 20% were doing differently. His research led to experiences with thousands of employees and entrepreneurs from 158 countries. Scott distilled the results down to his Passionate Work Framework - three surprisingly simple practices for finding and doing work you love, that all happen to be completely within our control. He makes his career tools available free to the public through his community at http://LiveYourLegend.net

What Scott has created at Live Your Legend is mind-boggling. He creates inspiration, the challenge to dream big and bold, and the tools to make all that a reality. But most unbelievable is the community he's developed of people who are passionate about doing something great, and helping each other achieve that. Have a look:




Let me close as Scott did. "And as we finish up, I have just one question to ask you guys, and I think it's the only question that matters. And it's what is the work you can't not do? Discover that, live it, not just for you, but for everybody around you, because that is what starts to change the world. What is the work you can't not."

Have a GREAT Day and Love Life!

Inspire ME Friday: 15 Things You’ll Regret When You’re Older

"Supporting others' dreams over your own is a recipe for regret"








Good Morning Folks,

It's the end of another solid week of progress at FSO. I am so proud of our team. How you go the extra mile, and of how you bend over backwards to deliver the full "white-Glove" treatment. 

As we head into the weekend, remember that everything we want to achieve is in our grasp! Everything we dream about can happen. We just have to have the conviction to go get it. We have to have the heart to make it happen and the desire to put forth the effort.

Here's today's dose of Friday inspiration. It's one of those advice columns you bookmark  and will refer back to it many times, and whenever you need a "lift".

1. Not traveling when you had the chance.
Traveling becomes infinitely harder the older you get, especially if you have a family and need to pay the way for three-plus people instead of just yourself.

2. Not learning another language.
You’ll kick yourself when you realize you took three years of language in high school and remember none of it.

3. Staying in a bad relationship.
No one who ever gets out of a bad relationship looks back without wishing they made the move sooner.

4. Forgoing sunscreen.
Wrinkles, moles, and skin cancer can largely be avoided if you protect yourself.

5. Missing the chance to see your favorite musicians.
“Nah, dude, I’ll catch Nirvana next time they come through town.” Facepalm.

6. Being scared to do things.
Looking back you’ll think, What was I so afraid of?

7. Failing to make physical fitness a priority.
Too many of us spend the physical peak of our lives on the couch. When you hit 40, 50, 60, and beyond, you’ll dream of what you could have done.

8. Letting yourself be defined by gender roles.
Few things are as sad as an old person saying, “Well, it just wasn’t done back then.”

9. Not trying harder in school.
It’s not just that your grades play a role in determining where you end up in life. Eventually you’ll realize how neat it was to get to spend all day learning, and wish you’d paid more attention.

10. Not realizing how beautiful you were.
Too many of us spend our youth unhappy with the way we look, but the reality is, that’s when we’re our most beautiful.

11. Being afraid to say “I love you.”
When you’re old, you won’t care if your love wasn’t returned — only that you made it known how you felt.

12. Not listening to your parents’ advice.
You don’t want to hear it when you’re young, but the infuriating truth is that most of what your parents say about life is true.

13. Spending your youth self-absorbed.
You’ll be embarrassed about it, frankly.

14. Caring too much about what other people think.
In 20 years you won’t give a damn about any of those people you once worried so much about.

Thank you for all the amazing communications of late, which inspire me, and I promise to keep the inspiration at FSO at the highest levels possible. 

I am excited because I know that FSO is better. I have visited competitive sites, FSO sites and in-house sites in the past week, and we are the best!

Nothing is going to stop us. You are the right people at the right time to make something great. So have NO regrets, and let’s make 2016 our best yet.


Have a Happy, Healthy, Safe and Refreshing Weekend,
Love Life!

Inspire ME Friday: (re)IMAGINE: When The Opportunity To Step Out of Your Comfort Zone Screams at You, Take It!

"Don't be stuck. Don't be confused. It's really simple: Your life's purpose is the quality of your life's experiences. Living life with passion is following your passion."







Good Morning Folks,

I meet so many new and interesting people by blogging. That explains how Tom came into my world and now your world today.

Tom Asacker has been teaching and inspiring organizations and entrepreneurs for over 20 years. World-class brands including Procter & Gamble, UPS, and G.E. have called on Tom, a renowned speaker and strategic advisor to shake up their audience, fill them with ideas and charge them with inspiration.

Today he shares a story we can all relate to and advises "forget about the reality of the economy and instead focus on your reality."

==> Breakout, breakthrough or breakdown by Tom Asacker 

I'll never forget an enlightening conversation with college friends back in the economic heydays of the 90s. It has stuck with me for the past fifteen years and often helps inform my decision-making, especially during uncertain times like these.

As we relaxed and enjoyed a Labor Day cookout, and our good health and fortune, I spurted out that I was, once again, venturing into the great marketplace unknown.

At the time we were all disengaged yet seemingly secure in executive positions with established organizations, unquestioningly embracing the status quo.

Upon hearing my news, one bewildered friend glanced at me, shook his head from side to side, and professed, "I could never do what you do."

"What's that?" I asked.

"You know," he answered, pausing to sip his imported beer. "Risking it all."

"Risking it all?" I replied. "It's you who are 'risking it all.' And for what it's worth," I continued. "I could never do what you guys are doing."

What they were doing, what many are still doing, was playing it safe instead of playing it with passion. And by "playing it with passion," I don't mean "following" ones passion. I've never "followed my passion," because, frankly, I have no idea what my singular passion is.

Perhaps it's why I'm so amused by comedian Mitch Hedberg's absurd declaration: "I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later." But why follow them? Why hook up with them? Why not be the leader of your life and let your dreams hook up with you?

Don't be stuck. Don't be confused. It's really simple: Your life's purpose is the quality of your life's experiences. Living life with passion is following your passion.

Unfortunately, most people believe that passion will mysteriously appear, or that the purpose of life is the pursuit of comfort. They view life as a waiting game with a series of problems to avoid, rather than an exciting game with the clock ticking and opportunities to pursue.

Comfort is an illusion; a fantasy that imagines freedom from pain and suffering if only we stay still and avoid change. What most fail to realize, typically until it's very late in the game, is that change happens to us whether we like it or not.

G. K. Chesterton wrote, "If you leave a thing alone you leave it to a torrent of change. If you leave a white post alone it will soon be a black post. If you particularly want it to be white you must be always painting it again; that is, you must be always having a revolution."

Without intervention, without progressive change, without revolution, everything in our work and our lives gets worse. Our bodies degrade, our relationships fizzle, our jobs disappear, and our ideas become obsolete (it has happened to countless organizations and to most of my friends). 

Face it: We are either breaking out of our spirit depleting routines and breaking through to new insights and experiences, or we are breaking down.

When the opportunity to step out of your comfort zone screams at you, and it will definitely come, take it. Say no to the sure thing and say yes to a creative challenge. Say no to short-term, comfort producing activities, and say yes to fear and passion.


Have a Happy, Healthy, Safe and Refreshing Weekend,
Love Life!

It's Easy To Get Hooked On FSO Hospitality

"FSO is nearing its five year anniversary and we have lots to be proud of. But we have only just begun. We have one goal. To be the best on site outsourcing company this industry has ever seen."







Good Morning Folks,


Our wonderful team at FSO truly embodies what it is to be hospitable, and I believe hospitality is where most outsourcing relationships lose steam. It's the advantage that's enabled FSO to best competitors whose incumbent client relationships go back for decades.

What is hospitality?  How do you make employees in the field more hospitable? How do you make the client feel the hospitality that separates FSO from all of its competitors?

Just like you have introverts and extroverts in life, hospitality starts for having an eye for personality as well as skill. It’s that twinkle in the eye, that skip in the step, that fire in the belly that makes our people different from any of our competitors’ from day one.

And for those who have been with me for years, I have always made this very simple. You can't teach people the DNA. But you can teach them the business. Right? But it has to come from within, within you to have that positive attitude and energy that allows anything to be overcome. It's about quality performance, personal service and a do-anything-for-the-customer commitment 

Many of our associates join us after eating, sleeping, and breathing hospitality for prior years in positions of service. We have even plucked customer service and hospitality folks from the front desks of several well-known New York City hotels and finest private clubs.

The First Impression Makers

Your front of house is the storefront for your organization. Our team brings your brand values to life and make visitors feel warmly welcomed. We deliver high-quality visitor experiences that perfectly reflect your values.

The folks we place in concierge, security or front desk reception positions (that we call informationalists because they are also cross-trained, multi-tasking utility players), looks to make a great First Impression and FSO's Concierge Associates are all about that first smile, service and information delivered as an ambassador for the organization. FSO ensures our customer service oriented staff perform at 5-star levels to make that front desk experience a truly warm and memorable experience.

Says one of our top concierges' serving at one of the nation's largest public relation firms, "I learned a great deal from being on the front lines of customer issues throughout my prior positions. For one, I learned that a smile goes a long way! A smile can totally change the way somebody approaches you and how they interact with you. Secondly, maintain eye contact and use the customer’s name. By using the guest’s name you are showing them that they are important and it helps to build upon the relationship. The final lesson I have brought with me to FSO is providing the unexpected. In Hotels, we often provide guests with a complimentary upgrade or sending an amenity up to a guest’s room after you find out it is their birthday or anniversary or another special event. These small actions can enhance relationships and make the guest coming back for years."

Using client’s and guest names when they approach us, making eye contact, always smiling, and going above and beyond to surprise a client or guest by doing something unexpected is what we are there to do! When incumbents aren't doing any of the above, then they aren’t being seen as delivering a superior experience, can’t be making an impact at all and worse, are opening up the door for competitors like us to eat their lunch.

You Can't Deliver 5-Star Hospitality, Without Passion

What we do is core to us and non-core to our clients so we do it better. Passion is a great gift, and we have a lot of gifted people taking care of our clients and always doing more to assist, which is what hospitality is all about. Most importantly our galactic growth continues to fuel the creation of new jobs and provides advancement opportunities for roles that traditionally had been glass ceilings.

Industry leading training, incentives, rewards, recognition and a TRUE career path sit at the heart of a successful company culture of hospitality and service that’s made the difference between a workplace people dread and one they brag about.

Penultimate Hospitality Takes Leadership

I read a very interesting article recently on Leadership and the premise was "Leadership is Simple." Great leaders are simply great guides on other people's journeys. So, what will make YOU a great guide (leader)? 

  • You know and live the culture 
  • You prepare and you keep your skills sharp
  • You listen and work with the team 
  • You support them, keep them moving and on track, and remove obstacles 
  • You allow the team, through their own skill and will, to reach success safely. 

In closing, tell someone today that they’re awesome. This is how you have a Super Life. Spread positivity. Our employees are unbelievable. As long as they have so much hustle in their hearts, and have no room to criticize, hate or challenge I’m on their side. 

FSO is nearing its five year anniversary and we have lots to be proud of. But we have only just begun. We have one goal. To be the best on site outsourcing company this industry has ever seen.  

We are healthy. We are strong. We are family. And we are all in this together. 

Have a great day and thanks for supporting our amazing journey.

Inspire ME Friday: College Sophomore Exudes Skip, Fire Twinkle

"As Father's Day approaches it should be no surprise that some of the most important qualities for being an effective dad can be especially useful when leading a team or an organization." 






Good Morning Folks,

I connected with a young man on LinkedIn and was so impressed with his profile and the spirt it exudes, I asked his permission to share it with you. Jamie writes...
"I am an extremely passionate student and colleague who strives to not only push myself but push others to a common goal. I love working in teams and groups and figuring out solutions to problems we find along the way. I have great communication skills and am extremely creative. I have worked with so many amazing and inspirational people who have given me the knowledge and skill set to achieve any goal I set my mind too. I love entertainment and entertaining others. Something that differentiates me from a lot of people is that when I am passionate about something, I do everything in my power to make sure it succeeds. No matter what obstacles are in my way, if I love something and am passionate about it, I will find a way to make sure it is a success."  
An acronym for the word passion that I live by is:
  • People don’t buy what you do they buy why you do it
  • Always believe in everything you do
  • Show how much you care about the product or company 
  • Success in a business or task starts with being passionate about it
  • Identify others who seem just as passionate and come together
  • Once you find a passion, follow it and pursue it, others will gravitate to you for it
  • Never work just for a paycheck, always do it because it’s something you love
Now there's a young man who knows where he wants to go and has the passion and purpose to fuel his journey. Thanks for sharing, Jamie!

Finally I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Father's day and a joyous celebration on Sunday. In a GREAT read on LinkedIn "Why awesome dads often make great leaders," its author, Founder, cloud software leader Roderick Morris, makes the point:
"It should be no surprise that some of the most important qualities for being an effective dad can be especially useful when leading a team or an organization. During this year’s NBA Finals, we saw leaders on both sides of the court who also showed themselves to be dedicated, enthusiastic fathers. If you’re a dad and a leader, being mindful about common traits that great dads and great leaders share can make you more effective in both parts of your life." 
"The applicability in team leadership is straightforward. The most effective leaders embrace the diverse and differentiated strengths that different team members bring to a situation. If you reflect on the leaders you have worked with who you admire most, those men and women probably recognized and cultivated your strengths. Going through the experience of being a father can help build your ability to do this for others." 
"Every father is accountable for their own impact on their family, regardless of whatever baggage they may bring from their own childhood. Steph Curry and LeBron James are both dedicated fathers, but they came from very different backgrounds. James famously exemplifies the sort of transitional character who “breaks the mold” learned by their father’s example." 
"Likewise, every leadership situation is new. The context of a team and its challenges is always changing. If you’re a dad in a new leadership position at work, don’t just reflect on the lessons from your past professional experiences. Be mindful of the times when you brought greatness to your role as a father: through strength, warmth, and trust. These gifts of fatherhood are universal."
Cheers to all the Fathers, Mothers, Sisters, Brothers and Daughters that support their FSO-employed spouses in allowing them to give their best for us every day for which I will be eternally grateful.

Love what you do and have fun doing it!


Have a GREAT WEEKEND!

InspireME Friday: Joe Ades, Million-Dollar Plus Earning Street Salesman in New York City Shows You Secret of Sevilla Chips & TIGHT Sales Skill


"Buy one of my gifts for $10 and they're not got going to be offended because you only gave them a peeler, they'll be delighted that you gave them the best peeler in the world, made ins Switzerland where a damn knife costs $100, but even if they want ed one, you won't find out peelers in any stores. No one else has anything like this. Only me. Take two now and I will trow in the second peeler for the single convenient $10 price. They're made of stainless steel they CANNOT RUST"



Good Morning Folks,

To end  another strong and exciting week at FSO, and in salute toil own sales superstars who give it their best each and every day (Bari Klein, David Furst, Jill Kort, Ron Kelly, Juan Santa, Taylor  Miller and Gill Shapira), I present one of the best salesman in New York City...probably the best, in the world period. Over a million folks have watched this video on Youtube, countless more on the street. And there's tons one can learn. You can get the peeler here http://astore.amazon.com/konyh-20 

So he makes around $21,000 a week...
52 weeks in a year: $1,092,000
he made $70 in 6 mins -
that averages to $700 an hour

If you want a new peeler, or want become a better salesman, then take a look at this guy 
Whatever you do, be passionate.



HERE ARE SOME COMMENTS FROM VIEWERS

"I bought mine from him in 2002 and 12 years later it's as sharp as the day I bought it.

"I'm Swiss and ours is surely 20 years old. great pieces"

"Peel a carrot - Like a boss! 
Cut potato - like a boss
Sell a peeler - like a boss!
Earn some money - Like a  boss!"

"He makes me wanna buy a peeler."

"I don't have a need for a peeler at the moment, but I am still throwing money at the screen."

I'd definitely buy a couple!

Take my money
I'm sure calling this the best peeler in the world is an exaggeration, but with a sales pitch like that how can you refuse this man?  Not to mention, I'd rather give my money to someone working hard like this than another big box store.his from any dollar store, but I'd go out of my way to buy one from him given the chance.

He's a millionaire now

im pretty sure there are better peelers out there.....but i want his!

He's not just selling the product, he's selling an experience, a promise and his personality.

I would buy this just for his sheer performance!

This guy became a millionaire and lived on Park Avenue because of his peeler hustling skills.
Search for 'peeler millionaire' on Youtube.

This guy is such a good salesman he managed to sell me one from the grave and across the pond to where I live in London, I'm getting one from amazon!

I would buy this product. Smart person and great demonstration 

The wolf of wall street asked this guy to sell him a pen. The wolf ended up buying 5 peelers.

You can buy these things in Europe, but i would still buy one just because of how awesome the skills of his sales techniques are.

What a great guy!  I would buy anything he sold, just because he's awesome.

Everybody in Europe has this peeler, not kidding.

Well, you completely missed the point of the video being about him being a salesman and not the peeler being amazing. 

Great salesman, lots to learn from!

Five and a half years later and we experience this beautiful moment in the benign milieu of human interaction. Bless him and his enthusiasm and perspective; it isn't life and death nor is it (seemingly) make or break. Perhaps what is so appealing and inviting is that he seems already comfortable with where he is? How many times have we been dissuaded from interacting with people on the street (be them vendors or pitchmen) because we perceive them as less than us or less well-off than us in our current situations?  I'm just smitten with this man and this moment. 

Well said, he was a charming and classy gentleman. He spoke to everyone on the street rich or poor. He was the street.

Great salesman!

Get this man on QVC, he'll make a killing

He's already making a killing. He's a millionaire.  

The American Dream.

That is one great salesman.  Where can I buy a salesman like that?  Is he for sale?

You'd have to ante up a lot of money. Apparently, he lives on Park avenue and is a millionaire. 

Excellent salesmen. I'd probably buy one but tip him an extra couple dollars for his superb selling=
To anyone who says salesmanship isn't an art, how's it feel to be proven so wrong?
this guy is awesome

wow sold 16peelers just in 5mins

An inspirational salesperson and a great device.  ]

I am totally getting one of those!ago
le reddit army has touched down!

"You only want one? You got no friends like me." Lol

Joe Ades: the potato peeling millionaire in  #nyc  -- your not from New York unless you know who Joe Ades is!

I hope he used all the example shavings. That's a lot of food!

I'd get one, and I don't even cook

Defines a salesman.  I walk up totally disinterested honestly I never even cook.  I walk away with 5 of the darn things.  Get home realize I'll never use said items exclaim, "How the hell did he do that?"

The problem is not because he's a great salesman... but the item hes selling is convincing anyway... sure this guy have great way to show the usefulness of the item... but if you got no interest in the item i don't think it's gonna sell..

Great to see this. Long time since I saw something as genuine as this, New York is just too invaded with hipsters 

All I learned from this video is that this guy is really good at peeling potatoes. 

He makes me want to go travel to NY just to get my hands on one of those peelers.

I too dont cook and i want one!! He really is the greatest salesmen ever! I wonder if this is what salesmen where like back in the 50s 60s thats the vibe im getting from this guy

Im never cook in my life. Im gonna need 10 of those slicer.

wow what a great salesman, I don't think I'd be able to resist buying a peeler from him lol

I just spent my time watching a guy sell peelers and I wasn't bored 
Joe Ades , Greatest Salesman in New York City His…: http://youtu.be/HCUct4NlxE0

I remember this guy. I used to watch him just talk and talk and people would buy and buy.

love this vid. awesome, human. there's something... magical... about someone who is good at what they do. & who enjoys it. / even veggie-peeling becomes a delight.


I had never heard of this gent, but last spring I was serving jury duty in Brooklyn and saw him across the street from the courthouse.  I *had* to buy from him -- his bit hearkens to another time and age.  I can't use the peeler without thinking of him, and regretting I didn't buy some as gifts if only to but from him and reward him for the memory he's given me, and apparently many others.

when i found out he died i genuinely cried. me and my friend loved this guy so much we always impersonated him and had laughs. we miss him so much. he had his routine down to a word. my fav line is "they're made of stainless steel they CANNOT RUST"

wow he makes so much money in just 5 minutes.


Forbes wrote… "For any investor assessing innovation, creative destruction and disruptive technologies it’s a must to find the outliers. The standouts are not the technologies themselves but the zealous missionary people who conjure up the big new ideas and champion them to everyone else." 

At FSO, our ability to (re)IMAGINE a future very different than exists today and surround ourselves with passionate, open minded people who always have our client's future success at heart, make FSO the Apple of its industry. The disruptor. The innovator. The better alternative.

Less than 48 months ago, hundreds of FSO clients ALL relied on someone else who let them down. Now they have made the switch to us. That's no match forJoe's enthusiasm and peeler sales, but today we are just getting started and Joe, you lit our pants on fire with new found optimism and passion for what we do every day  Thanks.

Thanks to our employees for all you do for us, and to our clients for awarding us the privilege of serving you.



Have a GREAT day!
