    Quid pro quo is a Latin phrase used in English to mean an exchange of goods or services, in which one transfer is contingent upon the other; "a favor for a favor". Phrases with similar meanings include: "give and take", "tit for tat", "you scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours". Look at it this way. Quid Pro Quo is literally this for that. The transfer of the favors happens simultaneously. In networking it almost never works.  Listen in to learn how reciprocity - which happens over the long term actually helps us build mutually beneficial relationships faster.  Drink of the Week: https://www.woodfordreserve.com/cocktail/porch-swing/ (The Porch Swing) This episode is sponsored by Nickerson, a full-service branding, marketing, and PR and communications agency with team members in Boston, LA, Miami, and NYC. https://nickersoncos.com/ (https://nickersoncos.com/) Julie Brown: https://juliebrownbd.com/ (Website) https://www.instagram.com/juliebrown_bd/ (Instagram) https://www.linkedin.com/in/julie-brown-b6942817/ (LinkedIn) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIwWVdayM2mYXzR9JNLJ55Q (Youtube)

    ​​Today we produce more data on a daily basis than ever before. We think that this data helps us make decisions - or influences why our customers make the decisions they do. But its not always the case. 95% of our decisions take place unconsciously - we make decisions based on emotion versus logic.    When it comes to surveying our customers we are generally taught to ask open ended questions, and to extract, but the truth is traditional customer feedback methods ignore two essential sources of insight: context and behavior. Context and behavior reveal the WHY behind the WHAT, eliminating the ambiguity of open-ended customer feedback—and this requires a different approach.   Listen in as I talk with behavioral scientist Andrea Olson about her new book What to Ask: How to Learn What Customers Need But Won’t Tell You.   Drink of the Week: Secrets Revealed https://www.cointreau.com/us/en/cocktails/secrets-revealed (https://www.cointreau.com/us/en/cocktails/secrets-revealed) Julie Brown: Website- ​https://juliebrownbd.com/ (https://juliebrownbd.com/) Instagram- ​https://www.instagram.com/juliebrown_bd/ (https://www.instagram.com/juliebrown_bd/) LinkedIn- ​https://www.linkedin.com/in/julie-brown-b6942817/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/julie-brown-b6942817/) Youtube- ​https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIwWVdayM2mYXzR9JNLJ55Q (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIwWVdayM2mYXzR9JNLJ55Q) Facebook- ​https://www.facebook.com/juliebrownbd/ (https://www.facebook.com/juliebrownbd/) https://www.smpsnerc.com/ (SMPS NERC Conference )   Andrea Olson  https://benbellabooks.com/shop/what-to-ask/ (https://benbellabooks.com/shop/what-to-ask/) https://www.pragmadik.com/   Research https://www.andreabelkolson.com/ (https://www.andreabelkolson.com/) https://towardsdatascience.com/the-importance-of-asking-the-right-questions-93aa3128500a (https://towardsdatascience.com/the-importance-of-asking-the-right-questions-93aa3128500a) https://hbr.org/2018/05/the-surprising-power-of-questions (https://hbr.org/2018/05/the-surprising-power-of-questions)

    It has been more than four decades since the release of "Star Wars" -- and yet, we are still enthralled!  May 4th is now commonly known as Star Wars Day. It’s a veritable holiday! But, this internationally celebrated day is more than just a quote in the film, the day itself represents how George Lucas connected people in ways that others just could not. Studies show 62% of the American population say they like Star Wars! Why, though? What is it about this tale of a galaxy far far away that continues to capture generation after generation the world over and what are its lessons?
