I’ve been doing reader surveys since 2009, and I get excited every time the numbers come in. As far as I’m concerned, a reader survey is the best way to get real, useful, concrete data on the people I want to serve best: you.

Last month I launched my 2015 reader survey. I do a survey almost every year because it helps me gain clarity and improve the content I create. For the past few days, I’ve been pouring over the results.
To my delight, almost thirty-five hundred people participated. I want to share the results with you, along with how I plan to use the feedback to meet your needs and exceed your expectations in the coming year.
Welcome to Season 2, Episode 12 of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this twelfth episode, Michele Cushatt and I discuss some of my crazy Christmas memories. I can’t believe she got me to share some of these!

For some, the word eucharist can be off-putting. It suggests ritual, sacraments, and liturgy. It can seem like the very opposite of a personal relationship with God.
But eucharist is word that all of us can embrace. It comes from the Greek, eucharisteó, which means “to give thanks.” This behavior should not only be central to the life of every Christian, but it’s also what distinguishes humans from all other created beings.
Welcome to the all-new This Is Your Life podcast. In this thirteenth and final episode of the season, Michele Cushatt, my co-host, and I answer listener questions.
I get questions daily from my listeners and readers. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to answer them all. So Michele and I decided we would collect them, pick the most common ones, and then devote the thirteenth episode of each season to answering them.
As you may know, a few weeks ago the National Speakers Association (NSA) announced it was changing its name to ‟Platform.” Many of you were, understandably, upset. Many of you were also vocal in your opposition. Your support meant more than you know to me.
However, I am pleased to report the matter has been resolved. Shep Hyken, the NSA board president, called me last night. He told me the NSA board had held an emergency meeting and voted to drop the name and go back to the drawing board. He also apologized to me for any stress this may have caused me or the people in our community.
Memorial Day is a day we set aside to commemorate those veterans who have died in the service of our country. It was first enacted to honor those in the Union Army who died in the American Civil War. After the first World War, it was expanded to include American casualties of any war or military action.
Amazon is working on technology that will enable you to receive your package within 30 minutes of placing the order. (Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, revealed this on 60 Minutes.)
If you’ve listened to my podcast, you know I answer questions from my listeners. Callers leave messages on my listener feedback line, I go through and pick the best, and then answer those on the show.
In the past, I have restricted the questions to the subject I covered on that particular episode. However, I am now allowing my callers to ask any question on any subject.
If you have a question about personal development, leadership, productivity, platform, publishing, or anything else, I’d love to hear from you. All you have to do is call me and leave a voice mail message. You can do so here.
If I answer your question on the show, I will also provide a link to your blog or website in my “show notes” (the blog post that accompanies that podcast episode). This is a great way to promote your site and get new traffic.
