(Episode 859; 20 minutes 39) Listen on iTunes.
Gina Rudan says being a genius is a choice, not a gift. It's all to do with focusing on what you enjoy and what you're good at.

Gina comes on to BTalk to discuss her new book Practical Genius: The Real Smarts You Need to Get Your Passions and Talents Working for You. The secret is to merge your soft and hard assets --- in effect, get both sides of your brain working together and use it to shape an identity that works through your work and social life.

The book includes the five steps to realising your practical genius and unleashing your hidden potential:

  • Identify your genius
  • Express your genius
  • Surround youself with genius
  • Sustain your genius
  • Market your genius
We discuss those five steps in the podcast. You'll hear about the importance of Yodas, Ambassadors and Fat-brains! The upshot will be a smarter way of working and a happier you.
