Thanks for listening to Episode 1 of The People People Podcast!
You're one of us, aren't you? You're a people person. But you get that being a “people person” isn’t just about being chatty and smiley and super-duper nice, it’s about transforming the world through relationships. You're one of those people who understands that HUMAN CONNECTION is the key to everything. You're one of those people who understands that humans are social animals, and we're all deeply longing for real, meaningful, deep-spirited connection in all aspects of our life. You're one of those people who understands that the secret to creating the world you want is found in your ability to connect. You're one of us. We are people people. And you found our show.
Thanks for giving our podcast a shot. Just to give you the lay of the land, The People People Podcast is a production of The Social Excellence Project. The Social Excellence Project is a company we started a few years back to spread human connection and to help more people live a Socially Excellent lifestyle. You can learn more at www.social-excellence.com, or if you go to www.peoplepeoplepodcast.com you’ll get to the same place. We’re passionate about this idea of Social Excellence. It has changed our lives and the lives of thousands of others who have read the book, seen our talks, or who have plugged into our other educational offerings.
I (I’m Matt Mattson, host of the podcast) could think of no better way to start off this podcast than by holing up in a hotel room and having a long-form conversation with one of my best friends, Josh Orendi. Josh and I started our companies together over 15 years ago and we've been having an evolving version of the same conversation as often as we possibly can throughout all those years. We talk about how to bring more people together to make the world better. That's what all of our work has been about. That's the point of The Social Excellence Project, and that's the point of this podcast.
Josh and I talk about a bunch of stuff in this episode, but mostly we talk about why we believe Social Excellence matters to individuals, to groups, and to the world. This isn't a "canned speech," this isn't a "polished talk." This is just two buddies with a dream talking about it... and inviting you in.
Enjoy the show!
