Djuan Rivers, soon to be French Ex-Pat, is back again and asking three questions that he is dying to know.

What about customer service annoys you the most these days? Rude people, long lines? I’ll give you a hint, it’s not even sitting on hold for six hours…it’s worse.

If you can be any person or object that represents something 300 years from now, what would it be? My answer may surprise you…but it also may not. I promise it is not what you expect.

Finally, you win the lottery worth 500 million dollars. What do you do with it? Besides run around the room like a crazy person? I have an idea, as I am sure you do. The sneaky follow-up question will get you through. It got me.

If you were sitting with Djuan and he asked you these questions, how would you respond?

Djuan Rivers, newly retired former VP of Disney’s Animal Kingdom, is sharing not only his unbelievable stories of travel and adventure but also his secret to living an adventurous life while having a successful career.

Coming from a legacy at Disney, Djuan started his journey in a confectioners booth on Main Street in the Magical Kingdom and ended up with his name on a window in the same area. This didn’t happen overnight but through sacrifice and excellence over a 30-year career. Even while leading and doing a job in such a way that Disney will never be the same, Djuan still managed to wing walk, climb mountains, and swim with sharks.

You don’t have to choose either a successful career or an adventurous life. They are not mutually exclusive. It does take planning, sacrifice, and trust. Both endeavors require focus. You have to build and equip the team around you to be the best at their jobs. A good leader equips their team by empowering them to do their best and learn from their failures. You will develop into your full potential by trusting those around you to develop in theirs

Building an atmosphere of trust is necessary. That trust can only be attained by pouring into those under you and reproducing values and excellence in them. When you support your team by doing your job, they can support you by doing theirs.

Matthew Luhn, the author of The Best Story Wins, is back again for the standard three questions follow-up episode.

It’s always fun to see what questions my guests will come up with. Matthew had a fun take. What is one of the first movies that you saw in a theater? I’m not sure it is the first, but I will say, as a result, I still have a soft spot for Reese’s Pieces and Drew Barrymore to this day.

Who is your favorite voice actor? This question hits close to home, having done 1500 podcast episodes and 3 audiobooks myself. I immediately think of three individuals, one of which has a voice that can bring my granny from the kitchen.

Lastly, who is the Pixar character to whom you most relate? That one is easy. Because we both have had adventurous jobs in our past, have had to figure out ways to use our abilities to help others in the background and most importantly, balance putting family first even while helping everyone else.

If you have wondered about any of these questions, you will enjoy our conversation.

Matthew Luhn, author, and writer is known for Pixar movies such as Toy Story and Cars, is sharing the importance of using stories to communicate and build a brand.

Whether you are a writer or are in the business arena, you depend on stories more than you know. There is no difference between a presentation or a pitch, be it a business idea or a movie concept. You must hook your audience in the first seven seconds and have a clear takeaway for them at the end. A hook will get someone into the idea you are presenting and the takeaway will make it real to them.

It isn’t complicated to use a story. Every story possesses two key ingredients. First, they have a beginning, a middle, and an end. Second, there is a hero on a journey. It isn’t as simple as pointing out success and achievement. The greatest hero’s fail more than they succeed. Sharing obstacles makes you relatable and authentic, which enables your listener to engage in your story. It’s ok to be a real person.

Whether you are telling a story or making a presentation, don’t just seek to entertain. Change and inspire your listeners.
