Why Finding Harmony Matters

Casting a Positive Stone

Folks would tell you that I'm a dynamic present. My goal is to be "inspiredutaining". Your audience will learn new tips and tricks, laugh while doing so, and be ready to take on the world. Bean's unique gifts include delivering complex information in an accessible way and making mundane information funformative.

The majority of my 30+ presentations fall under the categories of: Communication, Mindset, or Relationship Building. Often times, they include all 3. And I'm always happy to build a customized presentation for your unique needs.


Your Audience Deserves a Presenter Who Will Knock Them Awake, Aware, and Ready to Take Action.

Want to Become a TEDx Speaker?

November 22, 20232 min read

If you’re looking for instant credibility as a thought leader, few things can get you there faster than your TEDx speaking video. It’s like being awarded a certificate in thought leadership.

The good news is everyone has a Talk worth sharing. 

The bad news is, most folks wouldn’t know how to properly pitch the idea if the organizer were their best friend.

You’ve noticed that sometimes what’s said isn’t as important as how it’s said, right?

Never is this more true than a TEDx application. 

Think about it, you’re trying to pitch your idea and make it stand out in a pile of 100s?

You’d better be good. Scratch that. You’d better be GREAT!!

I have a 5 step process to get you there*.

  • Extract – We pull everything out of your head that relates to why this is an “idea worth spreading”.

  • Exact – We scrap everything that isn’t going to be a part of the eventual presentation, and focus on creating the…

  • Pitch – The words we are going to present to get you on stage

  • Polish – It will take a lot more than words. I’ll coach you up until you’re beyond ready to…

  • Present – We’re going to make a dynamite 60 second video that explains precisely why they need you on their stage

* While originally designed to help you land TEDx Stages, this process will help you organize and deliver any BIG idea you want to share.

This process can be delivered in 1 on 1 OR group coaching sessions. You can review more details on them by clicking their respective links, or… Let’s chat and see which is best for you!

How do I know this works? Because I’ve been producing one of the largest and longest running TEDx’s on the planet for the past 15 years. I’ve seen 1000’s of applications and work with one of the most discerning curators around. Oh and my BS filter is rock solid.

In addition to the 5 step process we’ve got some extra goodies that help you find the right stages for you and a process to make sure your application gets considered.

If you’re ready to step on to that little red dot, but aren’t exactly sure how to get on it, we should chat. SCHEDULE some time with me.

Be Connected - My First Book

Networking

Networking, often confused and misunderstood, is crucial in the business world, but it's not about linking computers; it's about connecting people. The author proposes rebranding it as "Relationship Marketing" or "magNETworking". Networking enables business growth with minimal investment but requires effective execution. Many engage in networking, yet few excel at it. This gap is attributed to a lack of proper networking education and the non-mainstream nature of the skills involved. To address this, the author wrote a book divided into five sections: the principles of networking, pre-networking preparation, conduct at events, online networking strategies, and post-networking follow-up. The book, titled "Be Connected", is a concise guide filled with strategies for effective networking. It's ideal for those starting a business or entering the workforce, available on Amazon and in person from the author. The importance of networking is likened to 'word of mouth' advertising, a powerful tool in business, yet often overlooked or misunderstood.

Finding Harmony... My 2nd book

Mindset

The book "Finding Harmony," which originated from a series of essays written by Terry Bean for his daughter, who faced school trauma. Recognizing the wider benefit of these writings, Bean, with the help of writer Alexandra Borzo, expanded the work into a full book. "Finding Harmony" offers 32 lessons and activities aimed at addressing stress, anxiety, and other emotional challenges by refocusing on what matters most. It guides readers through dealing with root causes, past traumas, and recognizing triggers, aiming to change habitual focus and offering a new perspective on life. The book also includes a companion workbook with exercises to internalize learning. The authors aim to guide readers on a journey of self-discovery and healing, offering a signed copy of the book through their website.

Find What Drives Your Behavior

Assessment

Behavioral Elements is a new way to look at the primary and secondary drivers of human behavior. There is a fully functional assessment that will provide you great insights that you can use for you, your teammates at work and your partner at home.

Once we understand what is driving the behavior we learn how to behave more intelligently.

In addition, we learn how to better understand and deal with others too.
