Take the #100DayGratitudeChallenge
Gratitude Girls Journal – 100 day Gratitude Challenge
Hey, everyone! We are the gratitude, girls, the gratitude! Girls are in the house. Hi, Laurie! How are you?
Hi, Katherine! I’m wonderful! How are you?
I’m really good. It feels like we’ve been driving to get here all day long.
you know, when you’re right you can’t wait to get somewhere, and you like, are we there yet? So I I want to welcome you and I together, because I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve had this sort of scenario going. And also maybe we can introduce ourselves to our new audience because we have some
lovely new clients and audience with us tonight, and a fantastic guest. So all start. My name is Kathryn and Sarah Meyers, affectionately known as Rah, as in the house broadcasting to live tonight Laurie Delk Radecki, Yes, and I am outside Nashville, Tennessee, and Laurie is my partner.
When I said Guest, I really meant to say, my partner.
Laurie, I was thinking about this today.
We’ve done some amazing things, and we have some great things sort of on the burner, you might say.
and I think we hit a new level. I feel like with this show tonight, unofficially, we can announce that we’ve really crossed across to a threshold in our business, and in doing so we we can celebrate with
with the guest that we’re going to announce we can celebrate that. We’ve really gone into like the Zone where some businesses really wait to get there and you plan it. And then it happens. And you’re like, okay, what? What next? So I’m really excited and honored to be able to say that we’ve come to this bridge, so to speak, in our gratitude, girls career. And it’s just gonna get better.
Yes, absolutely always gets better. And you never know what we’re gonna do right or where we’re going to be
well, someone might be wondering, how is it possible that we are here doing this show? And I love this story, and I so love the way that you tell it so for our guest, Marlene, tonight, and for the new audience that we have. Why are we doing this show? If so, when we started. The word gratitude and gratitude. Journal and gratitude show was really UNcharted territories. Now it’s a buzzword.
But let’s talk about how we trailblazed this 13 years ago.
Right? Yes, we’ve been doing gratitude since before everybody else. Right?
But yeah. So Catherine and I actually are in a direct sales company together, and we are both one of the top leaders in the company and at our international convention one year way back, in 2,013, our CEO always would do a theme for the year, and so that year it was gratitude.
and then he would ask all the distributors and all the customers to vote for who was there person? That was the epitome of gratitude.
And so everybody got to vote. So hundreds of thousands of people and Catherine got picked. So our CEO gets up on stage. He gives all her accolades and attributes and announces her. She goes up on stage.
I’m the techie person. So I’m in the back. I’m taking video. I’m taking pictures. And then all of a sudden, our CEO says that for the first time ever there was a tie, and he starts telling about the other person.
And I kept thinking I was sitting there. And I was like, Okay, I knew almost everybody in the company. And so I was like, who is it? Oh, maybe it’s this person, and then he’d say something else, and then I know it would knock out that person, and so I kept trying to think of who it was, and he ended up saying my name.
So Katherine and I met on stage in front of thousands of people. and it was just it literally like that, like, they say that love it first site
as business partners, and we knew we both are of the same mindset that nothing happens just by coincidence there’s a reason for everything. And so then we set out to figure out what that reason was and what we were gonna do with it. And literally within 2 min gratitude, girls was born.
I remember that moment my knees were shaking. I remember when I went up on stage I wrote that in my I am statements.
and you’re very humble, and Lori will not tell you this, so I Will Lori was voted in our company, or honored in our company for giving the most gifts. I think, about that
in our entire company she gave more gifts than anyone.
It was tracked. There wasn’t even a question. The company knew how many gifts she gave. What does Lori do? The very first minute she sees me. She gives me a gift which I still have, of course, that I can see every single day when I’m here. In my bedroom.
when I met Lori. I remember thinking, I wonder what it would be like to meet her, and to receive a gift from her, because it peaked my curiosity, and as soon as we saw each other. As soon as we walked down the steps off that stage. As soon as we touched hands to sort of support each other to walk down the steps because we were wearing, you know, those kind of shoes. So we were there to lend a hand to each other. It. It did become
a dream come true.
as far as business goes, because you don’t hear that too often. Right? You don’t hear about the match. You don’t hear you hear, maybe, about the difference. You don’t hear about the the cohesiveness, and what we managed to do is our our CEO really managed to put the 2 of us who were very aligned on stage and let the universe take over.
and that that feels so good. 13 years later, 10 years later 13. I don’t know how many years it is 2,013 to now. It’s 10 years. It’s in our eleventh year. It feels so amazing, and we have the opportunity to invite people and invite guests and friends and colleagues.
and share their gratitude. Story and the purpose of tonight is for us to share with you
our friend and our guest and her story. You’ve heard one of ours, and there are so many more.
But what’s really important is that
you put everything down, or you pick up a T or whatever you want, and you listen, tune in. Put your headphones on, and tune in to who we’re going to introduce you to now.
so I’ll read a little something, and then I’ll
speak from the heart.
Marlene is the creator and leader of the highly successful heart of networking organization. She describes herself as the connector of people and to creator of opportunities.
One of Marlene’s greatest joys is to facilitate the connection that business owners need to move their business forward.
Virtual heart of networking events.
our monthly events and training opportunities
that take people to the next level.
unique, quarterly in-person events around the calendar today. They just had their picnic, and Marlene was explaining that even though it was raining, it didn’t affect them. The show must go on. Marlene has been an entrepreneur, her entire career.
So Marlene speaks from firsthand experience.
helping others is Marlene’s passion, whether it’s through networking connections, educating or creating a spotlight for someone else.
All members are given the opportunity to shine.
Let’s talk about Marley
Marlene has been in the effective business networking space since 2,005,
and in 2,012, the year before Lori and I met Marlene created the heart of networking.
Marlene was named the Ajax. That’s a town here in
Ontario, Canada, the Ajax Pickering Board of Trade, 2,018 business person of the year.
and Marlene is very involved in the local business community.
She’s honored to chair 100 women who care. Ajax Pickering would be, and gladly devotes her volunteer time to help this stellar organization continue their worthwhile work in the community.
We have all of Marlene’s links in business communication so that you can reach here. You can see this all after the show. But on a personal note I would like to say that Marlene is a friend.
We network together.
We’ve done a lot of fun things. During that time of being online. we developed a strong bond when we couldn’t go belly to belly.
So you know, when you’re with a real network, or when you can build a relationship with someone and feel like you’re with them. I remember one day I was in the car and I had some news about myself. I wasn’t so thrilled about, and I called Marlene, and I knew that she would be there, and she would be able to hear what I had to say. I think it was about a meeting that I needed to be scheduled with her, and rather than say, I just rescheduled, I felt open enough to share
truly what was going on in my life, and Marlene allows that to happen. She gives you the opportunity to open your heart to her. No wonder, Marlene, your company is called the heart of networking. Welcome to the gratitude, girls.
Thank you so much. I’m so happy to be here.
Thank you. It feels like it’s been a long time like a year ago we booked this right.
It was. It’s very long time ago. It has proof and Testament that it takes a year to get on the show. And once you say yes, we just expected to show up. So thank you so much for going through your barbecue, your barbecue, your picnic, and getting here today. So tell us a little bit about what happened to you today. You held an annual picnic in your business.
Yes, we started that last summer. And there’s a a a park in this area that, and there, there’s a huge gazebo there, so we it. The rain did not bother us. In fact, it was kind of nice to be inside watching the rain, and and we we had a a wonderful group of people, and I’m always of the the mind that he’s meant to be. There is there? And so we had some fun and exchange some ideas and
had some door prices and and just just very relaxing. And yeah, a great way to spend an afternoon with like minded women. It was just. It was wonderful.
so nice to be together with people. Huh? Yeah, it is. It’s nice to have us go. Lori flies to come and see me from
Tennessee like there’s nothing that stops people from being together when you want to be with them. You know a a plane, a train a car ride, and you want to be with someone you get with them like you said the right person shows up, and I agree with you wholeheartedly. If someone’s not there, then they probably just not meant to be there for whatever that reason is. So thank you. Yeah, thank you for that. And it’s nice to see that you’re hosting these events to bring. I guess it’s business women together, right it is.
Well, then, we talk about gratitude, and how many years you’ve been networking. It wasn’t really a popular thing to talk about that
15 years ago. Not like it is today. It’s a hot topic. Is this woven into any of your networking at all? Do you focus on gratitude?
It is certainly indirectly
I think it’s a big, I think it’s a just a part of of life. One of the sections of our our virtual meetings we always close with, a a session called from the heart, and that is delivered by one of the members
and a different one each time. And they talk about you know it sometimes they want to share a poem or one of their own stories, or something that was meaningful to them. And it’s it’s meant to be something that the members can take with them and take take
on, you know, to make them feel good and inspirational, and often that the gratitude is the theme for that from the heart often.
Well, you’ve just touched our hearts by saying that we’re so happy to know that if you decide to do a theme on gratitude, we might be able to share a few pointers, or maybe a chapter from our book that maybe that would suit one of your meetings, Arlene. You’ve been a connected for so many years. Is that how you were born? Were you born that way? How did that happen?Well, I I I was in. I was in direct sales for a very long time. as you know, in the fashion business. That’s where where we really developed our relationship. And
I used to do. Fashion shows in people’s living rooms, and the hostess would of course, invite her friends. So in that case the host is really was the the connector
and so I I don’t think I really was that person in the beginning so much And then I soon developed that when I started to go to networking events. And I really, in the beginning, I really didn’t think I needed networking because the hostesses were introducing me to all these new people right, and I didn’t realize it was so much more that I I could do if I was networking, and and and so many so much more that I learned from networking. Not just
not just meeting, you know your next client, obviously, but learning from one another and just supporting one another. It’s it. It’s been quite a journey.
Hmm! And and I’ve learned that I each step of the way I’ve I’ve learned, and and that then, you know, you start to get satisfaction from that, and then you want to do more. And it it’s just a now. It’s a way of life for sure to that. Is that like you tripped on it with that kind of thing like it? You came to your footstep or your doorstep rather. Yeah, yes, it. It wasn’t something that I that I had planned.
it it just I was. I was attending one of my first networking groups, and and the founders of that organization. We’re looking for a new chapter director, and they suggested that I should find out more about it.
I knew nothing about it. So they saw something in me that that kind of
not things rolling.
Yeah. Working has changed so much over the years over the decades. Right?
It changed over the last couple of years, for sure. Could you share an observation on networking? So maybe someone’s watching tonight, and they’re new to networking. It’s possible, right? Somebody, some. They had a corporate job, and they now have to figure out how to network. Can you share? Maybe some
network? And I don’t want to say networking tips, because I don’t want this to turn into that kind of meeting. But think about what has changed for you. Maybe Lori and I can do the same thing. What is changed for all of us over the years and networking, and maybe you’ll start off. And then, if Lori wants to go next, and then I will. So what what’s happened in your life? In networking? What? What’s the difference? That’s obvious to us?
Well, I see women really understanding the value of of effective networking. And and I think one of the main things is
to to really be curious about other people. I think there was a tendency at one time for networking to be. Here’s my business card.
you know, and and not developing the relationships. And I think we’re much stronger with that and that curiosity about other people, and what they do, not just what they do, but why they do it. What gets them up in the morning that kind of thing. And and really, truly developing strong relationships. sometimes they end up collaborating on a an event. Or, you know, there’s all kinds of reasons that most of my
the I’m going to say I have found at at networking organizations whether it’s, you know, social media person, bookkeeper and tax preparation. All of that, all those services that we they all came to me through networking, and that’s been high value for me.
Well, Lori, I’ll go next, and then I’ll have you go, because I know you have a question from Arlene. The difference in networking for me when I first started my real estate career.
You got leads, and you kept them to yourself, and you worked those leads. There was no telling anybody who walked in and what who called you got a lead, and that was gold. No pun intended, and you figured out what to do with that name and that phone number, and that person so that you could service them and make the sale. That’s how real estate was when I was in my twenties
a couple of decades ago. So whatever we did to put our name out there. If that was called networking, we
put an ad in the paper. I used to be the person that wrote the app, make the phone ring. I was the person to get the phone to ring, be in the office soon as the walk in would come in. That networking was really one to one, and you were not sharing that information with anyone. It was very Sicily in New York. That’s how my networking experience started in my twenties.
Lori, what about you?
Yeah. Well, for me, I I had joined a couple of networking groups for about 5 years, and then I
decided that I was gonna take everything I loved about those groups and everything I didn’t love about those groups. And I created my own. And so I ran my own networking groups here in all over Nashville, in Middle Tennessee, 7 times a month for 16 years.
and I just retired from that a couple of years ago, and handed the reins over to another friend and Major Networker. But,
I absolutely loved it. I I was the same thing. I’m I’m a total social butterfly, anyway, and so I would meet with people. But I would also incorporate. You know, the the corporate sales training and the personal and business life coaching, training that I do.
I incorporated that into it, and
I had different speakers, just like we have here, and all my luncheons and the top people different things. But then I also would teach people like you have to meet for one on one. You can’t just come here for
that 45 s to 1 min, Spiel, and expect people to just pay you money for whatever you’re selling. Because guess why they’re here. They’re here to make money, too. Right?
And so I would. I just made it my mission to be the Nashville Networker and
and help people to connect to other people for whatever they needed, just like Marlene said. And just like we’ve done over the last few years with
moving just a few times and building houses and renovating houses. We’ve needed all kinds of different people and the same thing. I got them from my network.
Hmm, good point. So we’ve all done networking at different points. The one that most impacted me was in my twenties when we were keeping it to ourselves. I only learned decades later that you really want to share that information. You don’t gather it for you. You gather it for others, and that’s what we learned. Nobody really taught us that it was. Get something and do something with it.
Now it’s give the books, The Go Giver, by Bob, Rob.
Bob Berg and Robert John Mann being the go-giver.
positions us to be the person to help. and not with what we have to sell. So thank you. I like going around the table with that
Lori. I know you have a question from Arlene, and I know it’s about gratitude. So I’m gonna give you the floor.
Yes, of course. So you know, of course, this is the gratitude girls show, right? So we know that everybody has all kinds of things that they’re grateful and thankful for in their lives. But if you could just pick one thing, one story that you could share with the entire world all of our listeners.
It would. You just share that with us? Some some gratitude story.
That’s a really difficult thing to just pick one. I guess you know that right?
Well, when I the one that comes to me top of mind is is the fact that I was given a chance for that first director position. I’m very grateful for that, and I’m grateful that those 2 women saw something in me that I didn’t necessarily see it myself, because it took me on a whole new career path. I had been only in in direct sales,
in fashion up into that point, and then I I ran them side by side. but certainly
they it just giving me that opportunity. I’m I’m grateful for so many people. I you know, in direct sales. We have so many mentors, and there’s so much training, and and everything is given so fully and openly. And and that was a new experience for me. And so it it’s really.
you know, it’s really across the board. It’s a number of different people who gave me opportunities. and somehow I have the good sense to to grab on to those opportunities and them work. So I guess that’s not really just one thing, but it’s hard for me to separate that out, because it’s kind of a whole layer of my life.
Thank you for sharing that, Marlene. I was just thinking as you were speaking because you talked about so many different things.
What’s the biggest networking looper for lack of a better word that you would like, you know, a blooper would be something that happened that you’re thinking it was funny, maybe at the moment it wasn’t that funny? But it’s funny. Now, when you look back on it.
there’s something that you can just pull out the top of your head. Lori, let’s see if we can do the same thing networking blooper it’s funny when you tell it now.
I, I, I. That’s what one of you go first. I don’t think of something.
Okay. I’ll go first, so everybody can think. And this is when I say Blooper to me. This is a form of that. I went to my first big B, and I networking meeting and my sponsor and send out cards.
said he was going to go in and ask for what was currently important to him.
And I’m thinking, someone who wants to
so send cards right? Isn’t that what’s important? And he said, No. Now there were 250 people in this meeting. He said. What was really important to him was to find a coach for his son who played hockey.
he said, I’m going to be in a room with 250 people.
They’re all gonna send cards. I’m not even thinking about that
who doesn’t send a card.
but that’s an opportunity to ask
for a coach. And I thought. really.
and he said Sure! And he was extremely comfortable to me. That was
just out of the norm. Like, you’re going into a networking meeting with 250 people. You’re told to go in and ask for something that’s pertaining to your business, and Alex decided to take the opportunity to speak from his heart.
and when he explained that he was a hockey, dad, and how many kilometers he drove, and his son was a hockey player, and he told the story. He was looking for a coach. Someone stood up right away.
and he made an amazing connection.
and I learned from that. But as we believe, we should go in and say what somebody might have told us to say. Alex taught me that when you speak from the heart about what’s going on in your life at this moment there is no script.
It is what’s going on. There’s nothing to remember. There’s no order in which I have to tell. This story is what’s happening today.
And this is how I feel. And this is what I’m asking 250 people to do for me.
and as you’re talking, I don’t. I. I don’t see that as a blueper I see that as what we should all be doing is exactly what you said, asking for what we want, and not not focusing on the
you know the dollars or the next client. I have a a friend in the mortgage business, and she does a lot of training
with mortgage agents, and and she calls a commission breath, she said, you can smell commission breath of mile away. And you know, that’s that’s what you want to avoid, right? And so building that relationship and get, you know, finding the coach, finding that
your hairdresser, finding a a new house cleaner, finding whatever it is that you need. That’s that’s all value
right? This meeting that we were given a directive on what we were to do so. The blooper was that he didn’t follow the directions, and that was right. So what he did there and I agree with you. Our our philosophy in theory is wonderful. The Blooper was. Alex did what he wanted to do, and he did it from the heart because we were given a directive. Do this, and he went and did something else. And I thought, Do you do that?
So for me? That was a real amazing eye opening, because when you don’t want to follow the rules. And someone shows you that you don’t have to that’s great
right so let’s go around the room. Lori, anything. Marlene is still thinking right?
Well, I I I am There’s 1 one example that I could share.
and it’s it. It kind of is more of the what not to do. but I always see as the it wasn’t me personally. It was one of you know, somebody that was attending. And
I always say that the the cardinal sin of networking is offering unsolicited advice.
And this one particular member had a a a real habit of doing that, and you could literally see, as she entered the room, people would filter away. And
you know I I did take her aside, and I tried, you know. I tried to explain that. But when someone is that focused and that goal oriented?
I I’m not sure that it actually
was absorbed. Shall we say? But that so that was, you know that that that is a big blooper. That’s a big
no, no, as far as you know, building relationships. You just can’t build relationships with that kind of attitude.
You’re right, that’s a good good point, Laurie. Any any bloopers or something like a blooper.
Yeah, I wouldn’t say it’s a blooper, but it’s something that I thought of, though, when when you were talking, and that is so
at my meetings, instead of like most networking meetings where there’s one person that’s the 8 to 10 min speaker, and they talk about whatever the it is that they sell right. They go in depth of that.
And I noticed when I was attending other people’s meetings
every time that happened, and during the like 1 min. Spiels. People
would kind of tune out. They would check their phone, they would look at the wall. whatever right? And so I decided in my meetings. One. I had an 8 to 10 min speaker, but it was always
a usually like a life or business coach or it was another speaker, or some sort of trainer, and I would get them to come in, and they would train for that 8 to 10 min. So it was always something different, and it was something of value to the people that were there right, because
a lot like some of these trainers that I had, they charged tens of thousands of dollars to speak at an event, and they spoke for me for free. So that was nice. But
But I would have that, and and I guess it was just kind of you know, I’m a mixture of.
you know, a mom that raised a bunch of kids as well as I used to run a preschool so as a teacher there and then I was a teacher at my kids Christian school for a while.
So I’ve got that like teacher mindset, that when the kids misbehave. act right? And so
I I got to where I had no problem like mentioning in the middle of a session, you know. Please don’t look at your phones. Everybody pay attention, because you would want somebody to pay attention when you are talking, you know, and I would sometimes say that in the middle I would sometimes say that, like right as we pass business cards before the 1 min spiels.
or just whenever and and sometimes they didn’t even pull people aside and and, like you said, Give them the little talking to. But you know you never know if people take it or not. But
but that’s and it is funny, because that’s what a lot of people would say that I was the mom of networking, because I I made those adults mind while they were in my class.
That’s fun to hear. So you had them accountable for what they were there to do. Listen. I love that
so, Marlene. We have had a chance to have conversation. Now we like to do a part of our show where we pass the mic to you.
You’re very familiar with what it’s like to to lead, and we’d like to give you the opportunity to ask us both a question same or different. Just let us know who you’re speaking to, and we’ll be happy to answer it.
This is the part where we really put trust in you? Well, I’ll try not to let you down.
Well, I I know that.
but I you you’re both coaches. Is that correct?
Yes, so I I’m wondering over the last 3 years as as we’ve all as everything has changed.
Is there a difference in what clients are looking for as far as direction, or what they need
to be coached on. Has has that changed? Has our psychology changed in those last 3 years?
Who are you asking first? Oh, I’m sorry.
I I I’ll ask you. Raa, Raa.
Okay, great. So that I understand the question, has the psychology of the client changed, and what they’re asking for in the field of coaching?
yeah. Well, I see some things as a gratitude, girls coach, and I see some things in my business, the bridge, so I’ll answer for the bridge.
Briefly. some people got really nervous and uncomfortable with what happened with removing belly to belly
interaction, and that brought up some insecurities, and to many people surprises it brought up insecurities they didn’t even realize they had.
and those insecurities led to behaviors which created the reaction.
Some people were insecure. They stayed at home, they ate.
they baked, they cooked, they ate.
they were being seen from the chest phone up.
not getting dressed in a suit or a tie, and they started to let things happen that they wouldn’t have let happen. So I recognized this because this, the narrative that came to me was, I can’t believe what happened to myself.
I really need to pull out of this successful businesses successful business owners, successful entrepreneurs. It didn’t matter if it was 6 figures or 7 figures or start up businesses. The problem was the same for many people.
so I recognize that my business took off. During that time
I made myself extremely available.
put everything else aside to roll up my sleeves and get in and work with
being grateful. Coming from a position of strength.
avoiding lack, mentality, teaching, how to avoid lack mentality.
and to do what my mother in law always said. May she rest in peace? Hold your head up high and be proud.
and my coaching was focused on
the inner part of what happened to people.
and how it affected the outer part. It was really heart to heart coaching.
Interesting? Thank you. You’re welcome.
Lori. Is that that a question you can answer? As well?
YIt’s funny, because so many people, you know, had to pivot and learn how to do the online thing and do the zoom thing where Katherine and I’ve been doing the zoom thing then, before that it was Google hang out before that. It was What was it? Go to go to Webinar right? Or yeah.
And I think there was something else before that. So we’ve been doing that for many years. I’ve been coaching online for 30 years.
So But during that time I actually stepped back
like a lot of other people, but not near in the same way as that. Most people. So most people stepped back because they were freaking out. I had just got remarried in the middle the height of Covid
after being widowed for 8 years, and so And we married 4 months after we met, so it was time for us to get to know each other. So the Covid was just like a blessing for us that it came, and we were able to stay indoors for 24 7 for a while.
It’s a blessing and disguise for everything. That’s a great, great question. Thank you. Thank you, Marlene. There’s never enough time when we get together, and we start to have these conversations right? We talk about an interview. We talk about a show, but really we want to talk about life, and it’s been so much fun to do that with you right now. It’s in case something has come up while we’re chatting.
