It’s All In the Name: Marcello Pedalino -The Social DJ Podcast, Episode 43 with Steven Parry

Special thanks to Steven Parry for including me as a featured entrepreneur on his interview series, The Social DJ.

We riffed about being a proactive concierge and possibilitarian, the importance of character, prioritizing wellness, a few of my favorite books and some choice epitaphs. That was fun!

This clip features a few highlights from the episode.

Onwards and upwards!

Power Lunches and Vanity Plates are Alive and Well: Marcello Dines with Michael Port and Neen James

You know you’re out to lunch with the right people when the waitress comes by three times and you still haven’t looked at your menus yet.

That kind of organic conversation and camaraderie combined with delightful weather and a gorgeous view makes you stop and say,   “I’m very grateful to be here…  life is good today.”

I took a nice top-down ride out to New Hope, Pennsylvania, last week to dine with New York Times bestselling author, Michal Port and renowned productivity expert, Neen James. Topics of discussion varied from world travel, staying fit,  and intellectual property to Harley Davidsons, concierge services, and cool apps for your iPad.

When you surround yourself with successful thought leaders, it’s impossible for some of their mojo not to rub off on ya at some point.  If you haven’t read any of Michael or Neen’s books or had the chance to hear them speak, I highly recommend it.

… p.s  When we met at Michael’s home, it was really fun to check out everyone’s license plate.  See if you can guess whose is whose.   Neen’s should be fairly easy.   🙂 

If you or a friend has a cool plate you’d like to show off, share it on the MMP Facebook wall for the world to see! -mp

Marcello Pedalino to Join Michael Port in Tennessee on the Appalachian Summer Symposium Line-up

After reading the best seller, Book Yourself  Solid, a few years ago, Michael Port has continued to have a significant impact on MMP’s success. When my business was being profiled for a local business story, I credited Port’s latest literary effort when the reporter asked me if I had any advice for entrepreneurs.  “I’m reading a great book by Michael Port. He puts our business philosophy very eloquently.  Develop your credibility,  establish yourself as an expert, strive to be your best- most likable self, and you’ll quickly become the most obvious choice for your potential clients.”  These words of wisdom have served MMP Entertainment well.

Book Yourself Solid

Fast forward to 2011.   Robbie Britton, producer of ARMDJS 4.0, has invited me to join the stellar ensemble cast of industry-notable presenters and special guest speaker, Michael Port. Needless to say-  I’m honored, flattered and very excited.

The content of the symposium will cover areas of performance and business characteristics that are paramount to a successful company.  Michael Port will speak on Bookings, Larry Williams on Service, David Louis on Networking, Peter Merry on Value, Todd Mitchem on Control, Tom Halibek on Speaking, Mike Walter on Training, and my seminar will address- Energy. I’ll be sharing ways that entertainers can harness their physical and creative power so they can recharge their performances.

Tuesday, June 21, & Wednesday, June 22, 2011.

See you in Tennessee!  -mp
