“It’s important to be an informed consumer. We are in unprecedented times due to pandemic concerns, geopolitical tensions and our own presidential election. You should become familiar with how your broker-dealer handles customer service to prevent problems and make sure your trades are executed smoothly,” says Dan Pipitone, co-founder and owner of TradeZero America. We interviewed Dan so we could help you, our listeners, think clearly about your own relationship with your broker-dealer during the ups and downs of today's stock market. Crucial listening!

188: Laurel Farrer—Welcome To The Future Of Work

Posted by Andrea Simon on Apr 6, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how today's remote workforce is the new reality

Today, Laurel Farrer is our guest to talk about how to build a remote workforce that works, which is great timing. I have recently been working with clients with remote workforces. I have also been watching the changing world of work. All around the globe, we are moving from managing hands to managing minds, empowering our workforce and enabling them to work anywhere, anytime, as long as they get the work done. For some companies, this means management tools to ensure that employees are productive and well-informed about their obligations to get the work done. For others, remote work is seen as a “perk,” with flexibility not something that is measured or managed. This is the way the world is moving so we should all listen and learn.

In this time of uncertainty, with a global pandemic, what do you need to know from a podcast? Perhaps how to adapt to fast-changing times. We knew that this would be very timely when we recorded our interview with Teresa Douglas about how to work remotely and love it. As she tells us, “The world is now your office! You can work from home, from a coffee shop, or even from the gym — but how do you keep on task and stay motivated when you’re on your own?" Let's learn.

184:  Ivy Gordon—Providing A Powerful Voice To The Sexually Abused

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 12, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear about the long-awaited healing power of telling your story

I met Ivy Gordon through my work as a speaker with Vistage International. But today’s podcast with her is less about her acumen as a business innovator or coach. Rather, she is on a mission to enable women to tell their stories about rape and abuse through her website, Unspoken Story. While she is a successful innovator and business leader, what she talks about here is the need to provide a voice for women who have been raped or assaulted—as she herself was, almost 50 years ago. It is this need to tell their story that is essential to free women from the chains that stay with them all through their lives. I was incredibly moved...you will be too. Please do listen in.

183:  Marcey Rader—How To Maximize Your Productivity Without Hurting Your Health

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 9, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to perform at your peak without making yourself sick!  

Marcey Rader changed her life and wants to help you do the same. During her 16 years in business, she always positioned herself as the go-to person to help staff become more efficient and productive. She ran 12 marathons, over 30 triathlons, and several endurance races. Always pushing, pushing, and pushing some more. And then she got sick, really sick. That’s when she learned that her life and her lifestyle were so closely connected that more of the same was not going to make it. So, she changed. Now she works with others, like you, to help you change your life as well. All of us deserve to be happy and enjoy our lives. Listen in and learn how!

182:  Lisa Caputo—Smashing The Myths Of What Women Can Accomplish

Posted by Andrea Simon on Mar 5, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Hear how women can build better businesses that thrive!  

I was hunting around for leading women in the financial services sector as I was writing my book about exceptional women smashing the myths of what women can and cannot do. Lisa Caputo’s name came up and having been an ex-Citibanker for many years, I was interested in what she had done there for women. Lisa's entire career has been amazing, and as a powerful role model, her story should be told. I wanted to share her story with others, both men and women, to celebrate how women can build better, together. In our podcast, she talks about her own personal growth and those who helped her on her journey. Listen in; I know you'll learn so much.

180: Jacqueline Kibler—Want To Grow? Take A Good Hard Look At Your Culture

Posted by Andrea Simon on Feb 27, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Learn how to change so you can really grow!  

Jackie Kibler brings to our listeners a fresh perspective on how to run a business, just better. It is always a challenge for us to work with clients who have great ideas but are not great at growing them, managing the daily tasks, or developing the scalability that is needed. One of our favorite clients could have really used Jackie. Like those in my book, "On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights," this client just didn’t have the processes or perspective to see what was all around them. Jackie's business uses the methods of EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System) to help companies obtain accountability from their staff, the communication needed to stay on strategy, and the focus required to grow. Maybe she can help you grow too?
