People used to save their histories in books, memoirs, or photo albums; but we have failed to find comparable ways to preserve stories and share them with ease in our digital world. At best, memories are scattered across social media — if they’re recorded at all. Indeed, fewer people today are posting to the sites they once trusted with their memories. There just isn’t an effective platform for creating, storing and passing on first-person accounts in multiple media formats.
Enter Clint Davis: An entrepreneur with a passion for storytelling and preserving the past. As the CEO and Founder of Capsll App, Clint empowers others to save their histories and pass on their legacies.
Clint’s love for the stories that make each individual unique stems from his own remarkable life experiences and his 17-year career in radio and television broadcasting on four continents. Now, with Capsll App, Clint is encouraging others to preserve their special memories. With Capsll App, users can gather their once-scattered memories into digital time capsules that can be shared privately with full user control, or on an optional public feed to inspire others. Capsll App also provides users with coached storytelling, drawn from Clint’s broadcasting expertise. Unlike many platforms, Capsll captures no user data, has zero advertising, and allows users complete ownership of their content.
A cancer survivor who lost two siblings at a young age, Clint has always had a keen awareness of the importance of remembering the past, while also making the most of the present moment. He was born in South Africa, and witnessed the transition from the Apartheid system to democracy before moving to Dubai, and then, to Gold Coast Australia. Along the way, he embraced adventure — including skydiving and playing with lions — worked as a high-performance driving instructor, became a DJ at a top radio station, earned a theology degree, appeared on reality TV, and ran a podcast. A decades-long dream of living in the USA was realized when Clint won the green card lottery at a 0.73% chance. He and his wife moved to Los Angeles, and eventually settled in Austin, Texas.
In Clint’s words, “Always remember, there is a plan and a purpose for your life. You are valuable, and your story matters!” For more information, please visit https://www.capsll.app/.
At the age of 17, I was lost in life without purpose or direction, an only child of a brokenhome, and living in my grandmother’s attic. While being stitched up following a bloody street fight, I agreed to attend a week-long bootcamp hosted by the American Legion—run by U.S. Marines.
This set me on a life-long path in leadership and high performance. Following an honorable enlistment, now veteran Marine Sergeant Walls, I returned to my small-town home where I founded an IT Service Company (Corsica Technologies) that grew to be one of the best in class in the United States.
After nearly two decades of growing Corsica to eight-figure revenues and making multiple acquisitions, I sold the company and founded Lions Guide. Now I spend my days fulfilling my passion to help others learn high performance and leadership skills to apply in their lives so they might achieve their own personal and professional goals.
Episode 345 welcomes back Seth Godin for his 2nd appearance. Seth is launching his new book, The Song of Significance: A New Manifesto For Teams
ABOUT THE SONG OF SIGNIFICANCE
An urgent manifesto for teams and leaders facing unprecedented challenges, from the bestselling author of Linchpin and Tribes
What if we could create the best job someone ever had? What if we had that job?
The workplace has undergone a massive shift. Remote work and economic instability have depressed innovation and left us disconnected and disengaged. Paychecks no longer buy loyalty, happiness, and effort. Alarmed managers are responding with harsh top-down edicts, layoffs, surveillance, and mandatory meetings. Workers are responding by quietly quitting and working for their wages.
There is a better answer, a human answer, and it is within everyone’s reach.
In The Song of Significance, legendary author and business thinker Seth Godin brings us a powerful vision of how we can change the course. The choice is simple: either we keep treating people as disposable, and join in the AI-fueled race to the bottom—or we come together to build a significant organization that enrolls, empowers, and trusts everyone to deliver their best work, no matter where they are.
In Godin’s signature style, the book outlines a series of practical yet game-changing commitments we must make and a list of organizational milestones on the way to significance.
This is a book to share with bosses and co-workers, to discuss and put into action. We have a choice to make about how we spend our days, and it’s within our power to make things better – for everyone. Because as Godin writes, “Humans aren’t a resource. They are the point.”
For more than thirty years, I’ve been trying to turn on lights, inspire people, and teach them how to level up. This blog has been appearing daily for more than a decade. One day, if we meet, I hope you’ll share with me your favorite posts. Even better, I’d like to hear about how a book or course helped you interact with the world differently and make a difference.
I’ve spent most of my professional life as a writer. I’ve published 19 bestselling books. These books are a great way to go deep into a concept, and I think many of them stand the test of time.
Along the way, I’ve found countless detours, and interesting projects designed to inspire and entertain you as you continue to do your work.
Wendy H. Steele is the founder and CEO of Impact100, a global nonprofit organization dedicated to uniting and empowering women to create a transformational impact in their communities. Since launching Impact100 in 2001, Wendy has dedicated her life to encouraging women to see themselves as both activists and philanthropists, bringing them together in order to unite their efforts, support one another, and enrich their communities as a team. What began as a grassroots effort in Cincinnati has today collectively granted more than $123 million to worthy nonprofits across more than 65 local chapters and four countries. The importance of giving back with the intent to leave the world a little better than she found it was instilled in her from a young age, leading her to see that all of us have something important to give. Wendy believes that, in giving to others, we gain in incalculable ways, and we can encourage others to do the same.
Wendy’s debut book, Invitation to Impact: Lighting the Path to Community Transformation (MFF Publishing, April 18, 2023), shares her personal journey of building one of today’s most powerful grassroots organizations and invites women to become part of the solution by impacting their very own communities. Part business book, part memoir, Invitation to Impact provides insights for catalyzing meaningful change by giving women a seat at the table and a chance to join the movement—or spark one within themselves.
In recognition of her work with Impact100, Wendy was selected by Forbes for the 2021 50 over 50 Impact list recognizing women changing communities through social entrepreneurship, law, advocacy, and education. She was also featured as a guest speaker on TEDxBocaRaton in 2014 where she discussed what contagious generosity means and why we should all get involved. In 2020, Wendy was named a Distinguished Honoree of the Jones Prize in Philanthropy from the Institute of Private Investors, and she was also awarded the 2014 Jefferson Award for Public Service for her work with Impact100. She has been featured in several books, including The Transformative Power of Women’s Philanthropy; Women, Wealth and Giving; Women’s Giving Circles; and The Right Sisters – Modern Women Inventors.
Wendy lives by the motto “Not I, but we.” She believes that, in order to create a vibrant community, we must understand the community first. For Wendy, the most rewarding part of leading Impact100 is visiting local chapters to celebrate triumphs, big and small, and encouraging more than 30,000 women to make a difference. She resides in Tampa Bay, Florida, and enjoys reading, writing, traveling, walking the beach, and spending time with her husband, Rick, her five adult children, and as well as her dog, Gracie.
