"Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows." - Ben Stein

"I believe that you can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want." - Zig Ziglar

George Bryant is a digital marketing expert who believes in the power of relationship-building in marketing, but he had to fix his relationship with himself before he could figure that out.

He talks openly now of stories of abuse – both physical and sexual, of driving his father’s Harley Davidson through the door of a shed at four years old, of violence, bullying, self-harm, eating disorders… screaming for attention, screaming for validation, desperate to feel loved, desperate to just feel.

His story from there is one he recounts as a cycle of not feeling good enough, driving himself physically harder than should be humanly possible just to prove his worth, and then sabotaging his progress. Only to repeat that process again.

It took 30 years for George to realize the answer he was searching for. 30 years to begin to fix what was broken within himself, what most of us never even recognize, let alone face head-on.

Today, George shares with us how relationships beat algorithms. Relationships with ourselves, team, and customers.

So if you're ready, take out your pencils and let's begin.

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
