    It is time for another episode. I am Heneka Watkis-Porter, the host and creator of The Entrepreneurial You podcast. Welcome back to my regular listeners and a special welcome to you if you are tuning in for the first time. Last week I spoke with my very good friend, H.E. Natassia Wright, who shared her tragedy and triumph story with us. This week, I am talking with another inspirational and dynamic woman whom I also get to call a friend. Before I bring her on, let me thank those who make the mare go. They continue to support The Entrepreneurial You: The National Peoples Co-operative Bank of Jamaica Limited, Profit Jumpstarter, and The Jamaica Stock Exchange whose podcast, The Jamaica Stock Exchange & You, is hosted and produced by me. Do give it a listen as well. Here is a word from the JSE, after that, I will be introducing my guest and getting our conversation going. Opening business Tip courtesy of the National PC Bank of Jamaica: Invest Investing is necessary for every business. Investing includes investing in yourself (gaining the knowledge and skills to run your business), investing in your products and services, tools, and marketing to maintain and grow your business; investing in stocks to generate extra revenue to grow your business financially and more. My guest on episode 284 of The Entrepreneurial You is Tishauna Mullings. Tishauna has served as Ambassador for the National Financial Inclusion Strategy for the Bank of Jamaica and National Farm Queen 2014. In 2019, she received an award for being one of the 30 most influential young leaders under 30 of Caribbean American Heritage from the Institute of Caribbean Studies.

Today's Money Tip, brought to you by Profit Jumpstarter is Manage Your Money... It is your hard-earned money so spend time managing it, investing it properly, and making it earn for you. Understanding the time value of money will help you to realize how important it is to take control of what you earn. The central idea behind the time value of money is that a dollar earns, and grows with time which means a dollar now is worth more than a dollar in the future. Don't keep money idle. Manage it properly and invest it. Thank you for tuning in to this episode with Tishauna Mullings. What's the standout moment for you today?

    It is time for another episode. I am Heneka Watkis-Porter, the host and creator of The Entrepreneurial You podcast. Welcome back to my regular listeners and a special welcome to you if you are tuning in for the first time. Last week I got all excited speaking with Kevin Frith who is leading the Suncoast Beach Club development. This week, I am talking with another successful young entrepreneur who has been creating waves lately. Before I bring him on, let me thank those who make the mare go. They continue to support The Entrepreneurial You: henekawatkisporter.com, The National Peoples Co-operative Bank of Jamaica Limited, Committed to the growth and development of their members; Profit Jumpstarter, and The Jamaica Stock Exchange whose podcast, The Jamaica Stock Exchange & You, is hosted and produced by me.

So do your research, you may find that there may be products and services you can offer your clients/customers that your competitors do not. PODCAST REVIEW: A unique voice on entrepreneurship: The show has so many strong points. For one, the choice of guests: many of the guests share their process for making decisions, and how to find the help that you need WHEN you need it. This is an overlooked topic in entrepreneurship, but Heneka is great at teasing out the important points. It's also refreshing to hear someone that takes a cultural perspective on starting a business. There are many tribes out there. I can also tell that effort is put into the production, so that it's always an easy listen. I'm gonna keep coming back!

Today's Money Tip, brought to you by Profit Jumpstarter: Invest In Dividend Paying Stocks: Invest in dividend-paying stocks. Even if the share price doesn't go up every year, you still make money by way of dividends. Use high dividend yield, percentage of dividend compared to its price, to pick up shares. Diversify your portfolio by adding some high dividend-paying stocks. Thank you for tuning in to this episode with Ricardo Allen. Did you imagine Ricardo walking to school bare-footed?

The reminder that if I can look up then I can get up was super poignant and powerful. This week, I am joined by someone I have known for a couple of years before his business got off the ground. I am super excited to get the scoop as to what he has been up to. Before I bring him on, let me thank those who make the mare go.

PODCAST REVIEW: A boost for your productive muscles: Loved the point of view that Heneka brings to this podcast. Yes, many podcasts out there talk about creating a plan for yourself and then following through, but what makes this podcast special is that the host keeps the specific listener in mind with the topics. She targets entrepreneurs from the Caribbean, and as someone who's from the Caribbean islands myself, I know that we approach learning a bit differently than someone from the States. Her guests are from all over the world and provide a much broader perspective on getting stuff done.

    Lisa Nichols Replay: How Shining Your Light Sets You Apart From Others

    Business Tip courtesy of the National PC Bank of Jamaica: Get Organized - Successful businesses are built on the organization. This can either make or break your business. Without organization, tasks can pile up and you can lose valuable money and time. In this episode, we are joined by Lisa Nichols, the world's most requested transformational speaker, to discuss how shining your light sets you apart from others. From a struggling mom on government plans to a multimillionaire entrepreneur, Lisa shares her story on how she had to give herself permission to heal so that her light could shine. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Lisa's Breakthrough- Giving Herself Permission Lisa speaks about giving herself permission to heal from being a struggling single mom and having to be on government systems. She speaks about her journey from weighing over 200 pounds. Lisa also speaks about her journey from not feeling comfortable in her own skin Understanding What Your Next Level Looks Like- Lisa shares that sometimes we won't always have the capacity to see the version of ourselves that is yet to come so we have to accept that we won't have the whole plan right away. You have to take advantage of all the online resources available to you as online learning has become quite popular. Trust yourself to implement and then find the right coach for yourself. Touch Your Own Next Level Even without clarity, I'm ready for it Adjusting and Working On Your Light- We need to recognize when it is time for us to start learning something new. If you want to take yourself somewhere you've never gone, you will need someone else- sometimes we have to accept that we have taken ourselves as far as we can get on our own. Work with someone that is 10 to 20 steps ahead of you, someone you can study and learn from. Lisa points out that you should “Hook your caboose” to someone else's train and learn new things. Find someone that will teach you what is in your “Blindspot”. As entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs, we are coaching others but we also need to be coachable. Be Willing To Be Your Own Rescue- Lisa shares that we have to be willing to put ourselves first. We have to be willing to build something for ourselves so that we may have something to give back. We have to be willing to ask ourselves the questions, “ What do I need?” “What does my dream need?” “What do my next 5 years need?” and “What do my next 10 years require of me today?” Lisa also highlights that we have to be willing to risk it all to gain it all for ourselves. Today's Money Tip, brought to you by Profit Jumpstarter is Know Your Risk Tolerance Investments in securities are subject to market risks. You may even lose your capital. The level of risk investors can take varies from investor to investor which is highly dependent on the individual's risk tolerance. Ascertain your loss-bearing capacity and limit your investments accordingly. Understanding your risk tolerance will help you come up with a suitable investment strategy. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-entrepreneurial-you/message

    Episode 263 The Entrepreneurial You Podcast The Quick-Start Guide to Launching Your Fashion Brand (Part 4) Part 4 of this series looks at Shipping & Distribution + More You finally have your designs and you're anxious to get them to market. After all, what good is a product if it is not in the hands of a customer? A very important part of the process is the logistics of how this will happen. Depending on where you plan on shipping to, ask your production facility if they engage in dropshipping. This is where they store your product and ship to your customers from their location to reduce the time it would take to have them ship the final product to you then you in turn ship to customers (assuming you are dealing with overseas customers). It is important to get familiar with the International Commercial Terms (Incoterms). This will aid in preventing any undue stress that can accompany the shipping process. Being aware of this is important to making a decision about whether you will ship via sea or air. You've read this far. Great, it means you are still interested in starting your fashion business. Here are some options to consider in getting your product out to customers: ❇️Are you targeting boutiques styled retail outlets? ❇️How about department stores? ❇️Will you sell direct to customers or direct to businesses? ❇️Will it be offline or online or a combination of both? What about channels such as eBay, Etsy, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Craigslist and Shopify? While this list is not exhaustive, the platforms mentioned are great options to consider as you build your brand. ❇️Will you decide to open your own boutique to offer your unique experience to your market?

    Part 3 of this series looks at Creating Samples & Production: After carefully thinking through your idea, doing your market research and business plan, it's now time to create showroom samples to start seeking out prospective retailers. If your fashion collection is simple like t-shirts, for example, you may source ready-made blanks from white-label sources and have them embellished with your custom designs. You may also choose to identify a manufacturer to have them custom made according to your specifications as in the case of Patwa Apparel. I will go into more details about how to identify a supplier/manufacturer later. If it is more elaborate, consider whether you will be the one designing or whether you will you employ a fashion designer. Can you make your own patterns or will you identify an expert to do this if this is not your area of expertise? You may consider connecting with a final year fashion design student from your local university to intern with you. Final year fashion design students are usually a great source of help as they need the experience. They will be willing to start at a lower fee than a more experienced designer. This is a win-win. Will you be the one manufacturing or will you outsource this to a production facility? Have any questions?

    The fashion industry is unique. It is driven by change and is constantly changing. It changes so much, we find trends revolving and re-surfacing again when we thought they died a natural death. The industry has several different parts making up the whole. The seamstresses, tailors, manufacturers, models, factory workers, forecasters, designers, pattern makers, sketch artists, embroiderers, store owners, etc. Any industry that has so many other components will surely have its fair share of individual prejudices, styles and tastes. It is important to determine and define your sense of style. Individual preferences aside, at all times, the wants, needs and desires of your customers will have to be anticipated. New advancement happens rapidly. Keeping up with trends from fashion forecasters will be necessary to determine colour, styles, accessories, textures, prints, etc. to stand out from the noise. The question of, 'How do I turn my passion for fashion into a viable business can be daunting. Yet, with the right guidance, it is possible though not easy. A fashion business can be extremely lucrative. After all, clothing is one of the basic physiological human needs according to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. Amidst the glitz and glamour of the industry though, an entrepreneurial approach must be taken from the get-go in order to achieve any measure of success. If you are listening to this podcast, you may have some desire to become a fashion entrepreneur, that's awesome. I will explore in more depth in coming chapters but here are some initial questions you must be prepared to answer very honestly: Do I really want to run a fashion business or is it that the idea of it seems alluring? Do I have access to the necessary funding? Do I have the skills that are required or am I able to identify partners to help me? What is unique about what I'm doing?

    Non-fungible tokens, widely known as NFTs, are the latest evolution of the cryptocurrency concept. They've been around since 2014 but recently gained notoriety. NFTs can be traded or exchanged, one for another as one of a kind digital representations of physical assets. They are essentially digital contracts, with certain rules such as the number of copies available for sale. Much of the current market for NFTs is centred around collectables, such as digital artwork, music, real estate and sports cards, even tweets. So what triggered the latest internet obsession? In early March 2021, a group of NFTs in the form of artwork was sold for over USD 69 million, the sale set a precedent and a record for the most expensive pieces of digital art sold thus far. NFTs exist on a blockchain which is a distributed public ledger that records transactions. Blockchain technology help artists and content creators, for example, get the opportunity to monetize their wares without relying on a gallery or auction house. Instead, the artist can sell it directly to the consumer. In theory, anybody can tokenize their work to sell an NFT. It is important to note, however, that NFTs are typically held on the Ethereum blockchain so owning and storing some of this cryptocurrency is usually the first step in attaining NFTs.

    He's a man of inspiring principle, determination and composed appearance… John Mahfood is a certified public accountant and an experienced business leader who was introduced to the mechanics of the field from as early as he could remember. Most of his early years were spent cultivating his leadership skills by working in the family business; guided by his dad Adeeb Mahfood. Before taking over as CEO of Jamaica Teas, John had already developed a track record of high performance and professionalism, with companies such as Grace and Price Waterhouse cooper and HiLo supermarkets. At the helm of JTL, John has been instrumental in the company's listing on the Jamaica Stock Exchange and expansion to become the largest producer of teas in the Caribbean with almost one-half of its products exported. His ability to sustain such ambitious business models over the decades no doubt has influenced his selection as president of the Jamaica Manufacturers and exporters Association for the term 2021/2022. We talk business affairs and so much more today on the entrepreneurial you, with John Mahfood. Short Form Videos Short-form videos… are ruling supreme among digital marketing strategies and facilitators, advertisers and consumers alike, all want to capitalize on its reign…at least while it's a hot topic. Video marketing isn't that new, it became mainstream around 2010, offering biteable content used to drive sales, create engagement and raise awareness among other things. Shorts on the other hand, in particular those influenced by social media usage, emerged fairly recent, around 2020. Whether they are created to publicize a big business campaign or promote a Do It Yourself home video, the value of shorts is undeniable. In many cases it's a free app feature that's easily accessible, it gives people quick and easy ways to consume information and since people tend to share the video at twice the rate of any other media, it's one of the sure ways to get good returns on investments. So what are the top short-form video platforms available for free and what are some benefits of using them…asking for a friend you say? Well, we've got you and your friend covered. If you're not leading a large budget marketing activity that requires professional video production, you might want to consider using a few of these… Tik Tok-the trendsetter of short-form videos on social media. Not only are users enabled by features that allow the use of graphics, music, and imported media, packed in an easy to edit the recording, but also brands have access to a creative space filled with an audience of millions around the world, eager to explore and express creativity like never before…all most brands have to do is start a challenge that is highly likely to create a buzz around a product or service. Instagram Reel. The Instagram reel was launched in August 2020 as a challenge to tik tok but ascended in popularity when India and the USA banned the use of tik tok in their countries. Which left former users turning to Instagram for a substitution that gave them the opportunity to churn out 15-30 seconds videos, highlighting pretty much anything. Like tik tok, reels on Instagram auto-play one after another and is giving dreamers and celebrities both a massive opportunity to earn from the creative showcase of talent and rotation of music on the platform. Snapchat spotlight was also created to rival tik tok. It features short videos in a continuous loop that users can use to advertise as well as get monetary incentives for videos with a high number of views. In February 2021 alone, over 124 million Snapchat users watched spotlight videos, so the chances of being seen are quite decent. So the next time you think about short-form videos, think about taking advantage of any one of these to help widen your audience reach and maximise profits. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-entrepreneurial-you/message

After so many years in business, how does one reinvent themselves and re-establish their brand to become a transformational force? Michelle joins us to talk about entrepreneurship, politics and philanthropic work. High buildings, high prices and high demands. The rising interest in property ownership has had buyers and sellers caught in the housing craze with little regard for costs. Jamaica is experiencing a robust real estate market, to say the least, and banks and financial institutions are all here for the profits. Real estate is likely one of the best stable investments one can make on the island, which appreciates over time as a relatively safe financial venture. Prospective homeowners and banks both recognize the earning power of these types of investments which explains their keen and growing involvement in servicing mortgage loans. But how and why are banks eager to help us secure our dream homes? Let's take a closer look. The selling price for a house, apartment or land today is possibly the lowest it will ever be. With that said, the mortgage lender stands to gain as a real estate owner who can re-sell repossessed properties if needs be. This resale is at a higher cost than that covered in initial loan disbursement. Also, mortgage lenders charge customers fees including application fees and periodic maintenance fees. Some banks may offer a mortgage product package with a flat annual fee, either way…customers are still paying fees outside of repayment of loans. Banks also have the opportunity to promote other financial products throughout the loan process in order to maximize their revenue. These include home renovation loans, refinance loans and so on. Since mortgages involve borrowing a significant amount of money which is usually repaid over decades, banks often like to sell as many mortgage products as possible which often results in competition between banks for signing up borrowers. Banks also compete for customer deposits, which give them the money to lend to borrowers, so they select their interest rates to ensure they remain competitive in both respects. Bank-controlled real estate brokerages will most likely become marketing arms for mortgage departments, when this occurs, you can bet that more aggressive, targeted marketing strategies will be applied to solicit more and more borrowers looking to finance the purchase of homes. There are pros and cons of using banks as mortgage lenders, you'll just have to identify the approach that works best for you. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-entrepreneurial-you/message

Trending Now: Artificial Intelligence Most people think of science-fiction and human-like robots when they hear the term Artificial Intelligence (AI). Well, that only obtains in Hollywood. In the real world, Artificial Intelligence refers to a computer system equipped with intellectual processes that allow machines to discover meaning, generalize, learn from experience and adjust to new inputs. Deep learning and natural language processing are key components of the AI set up and these technologies allow computers to be trained to accomplish specific tasks. The term artificial intelligence was coined in 1956 but the hype around AI has accelerated in recent times, due to increased data volumes, advanced algorithms, and improvements in computing power and storage. More and more industries are growing in demand for AI capabilities including healthcare, retail, manufacturing and banking. While the definition of AI gets more complex and extensive, we're gonna try and share some examples of specific uses of Artificial Intelligence applications in everyday processes and hope they give you a better understanding of what we're working with. For one, smartphones use AI to provide services that are as personalized as possible. Virtual assistants answering questions, providing recommendations and helping organize daily routines are some examples. Language translation software relies on artificial intelligence to provide and improve translations. In addition, smart thermostats learn from human behaviour, how to save energy and although self-driving vehicles are not yet standard, some cars already use AI-powered safety functions in their mechanics. In the fight against covid-19, AI has been used in thermal imaging in airports and in medicine, it can help recognise infection from computerized tomography lung scans. By this rate, AI is sure to heavily impact the future development of health, cybersecurity, auto and creativity to name a few. So it's not a question of when…but how these will be implemented and embedded in our daily activities. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-entrepreneurial-you/message

More and more people are becoming interested in the mysterious digital currency industry that carries more than fourteen thousand different cryptocurrencies traded publicly, at a value of almost 3 trillion as of November 2021; this is according to market research website coinmarketcap.com. With all this focused attention being paid to Cryptocurrency, here are some factoids you might find valuable. A cryptocurrency is a form of payment that can be exchanged online for goods and services. The currencies use blockchain technology that manages and records transactions across computers. "Crypto" refers to the various encryption algorithms and cryptographic techniques that safeguard these transactions. One of the things that make this market so interesting, is that there is no central authority to issue the currencies, they are theoretically immune to government meddling but are susceptible to taxation in some regions. Perhaps that's part of the reason cryptocurrency is not supported by all countries, with some like Nigeria, going as far as putting a ban on crypto exchanges. Now let's take a closer look at the world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization…Bitcoin. Launched in 2009, by an anonymous creator, Bitcoin has been described as fulfilling the need for an “electronic payment system based on cryptographic proof instead of trust”. Bitcoin transactions are stored on a public ledger containing information secured by blockchain, which should make it difficult to tamper with. This seems to be the biggest pull for investors because, since its public launch, one Bitcoin now sells for more than $62,000. Usd. And for those who may be wondering, yes bitcoin can be converted to cash. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-entrepreneurial-you/message

The high price of all this, just for a few minutes of floating. But what has renewed this space craze tourism venture and why are the richest people in the world competing to set up shop outside of earth? Let's delve in. Space shuttle flights have been a thing from the early 1980s but somehow has made a strong comeback as the talk of the town with the likes of brands such as Virgin, SpaceX, Blue Origin, and Boeing CST-100 Starliner launching rockets recently. We suspect the revival has a lot to do with newly found bragging rights that can be had and revenue potential, especially now that tech advancements have made it easier and more affordable to launch off…the affordable part can be argued of course. Analysts estimate that by 2040, the global space industry will grow from about 400 billion to more than a trillion dollars. If it's true that a seat on the shuttle will go for anywhere between two hundred to three hundred and fifty thousand USD, then those estimates don't seem so hard to believe. In fact, A floating space hotel is set to launch in 2021 with a projected cost of 2.3 billion dollars. Hotel mogul Robert Bigelow has plans to sell slots to government officials looking to do research as well as holiday slots to those who can afford it.

I won't lie though, I have had some serious challenges that I am still navigating. Honestly, there was a time in the year where I thought I couldn't bear anything else. While still recovering from a life-threatening burnout in 2020, my husband suffered major strokes in May, which frightened the daylight out of me. I cried, acknowledged where I was and reached out for help. And man did my community rally around me! Oh yeah, you supported as only you could—the prayers, the retreats, the phone calls, the cooking of meals and more—you reminded me that I was not alone, and I am grateful for that.

    Ever thought about what to say or do to get a meeting tipped in your favor before it even start? Words have power but when combined with the appropriate body language and action, they have the power to move mountains.  Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:    Learn the true meaning of communication Explore the four types of communicators and the steps to effective communication.  To learn practical steps to tip meetings in your favour.  Episode Highlights   The True Meaning of Communication Aurora explains that communication is when the message sent is the message that is received.  She explains that this is not always the case because there is always background noise of some kind to prevent effective communication. As a communicator, it is important to understand neurological science and know that there is always a conversation in the listener's head, whether it is thinking about their bills or a previous conversation.   Steps to Effective communication  Aurora lists the three vital steps to effective communication.  Hijack - Grab the attention of the listener and silence what is going on in their head so that they pay attention to you.  Connect - Try to connect with the listener. The mid-brain looks for friendliness, status, and connection. By appealing to these, listeners will feel more inclined to listen.  Details - To communicate effectively, the brain should be silenced to create a connection. It will then be able to receive and process information from the speaker.    The 4 types of Communicators   Aurora explains that the average person has a default setting when it comes to communicating but, you must pay close attention to the kind of communicator you are:   What - The ‘what' communicator usually delivers a more analytical presentation and provides a lot of data and details. These communicators are generally scientists, engineers, and technology-oriented persons.  Why - The ‘why' communicator usually needs to know why they are telling somebody about wherever the topic may be.  How- The ‘how' communicator is usually the person that seeks to implement something and has a plan. Who -  The ‘who' communicator likes to know who their audience is; this helps them to focus on questions such as, who is the ideal client? and to whom does this message matter?   Why write a book  Aurora shares that she believes strongly that everyone has a story to share and that life experiences can turn into wisdom for the younger version of ourselves.  She says that communication of this story doesn't always have to be through a book, as a book is just a vehicle. She shares that videos and podcasts can also be used as vehicles to share your story.   She shares that she encourages people to tell their stories and found that many people didn't know how to write books and get the help needed to finish and publish a book. Hence, she wrote her book to help potential authors figure out how to write a book and monetize it.    Practical Tips To Tip A Meeting In Your Favour 1) Frame Yourself as the Solution  Frame yourself as the solution to your potential client or partner's problems and establish your authority. Aurora explains that the best way is to write and publish a book and take it a step further by sending each person an autographed copy of the book before meeting with them.    2) Do not Focus on You Aurora highlights that we tend to focus on what we have to offer in meetings but, it would be beneficial to allow your authority to speak for itself. She encourages us to use more time to listen generously and generate ideas for the other person and their additional needs.     3) Practice  She encourages us to practice and know our content, that if a meeting should have a thirty-minute time stamp, you can deliver your content in a timely, efficient manner and use the bulk of the time to find ou...

    How to Connect, Create and Innovate Across Cultural Lines

    How do you view Culture? Have you taken stock of your personal biases and your outlook on issues relating to cultural diversity recently? I'm excited to share this episode as Genein Letford breaks down, “How to Connect, Create and Innovate Across Cultural Lines.” Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Explore the definition of culture.  Learn how the culture of your everyday life can affect the culture of a work environment and the way people carry out their tasks. Discover how to create an inclusive work environment and change unconscious biases.  Episode Highlights   The Relationship between Culture and Creativity   Genein says culture by definition is a group of people with a shared set of values, beliefs and systems. She says creative thinking is affected by culture and culture is lived through people. Therefore, the people in a business or organization guide its culture.  She explains that culture is not one set thing as there are different cultures; i.e. Ethnic culture, National culture, and that these are affected by things such as gender and other demographics. She also gives examples of how different cultural upbringings can affect reasoning ability and the way we conduct research and other work.  Genein explains the importance of having diversity in the workplace as it gives a broader spectrum of views and understanding. She explains that the way people interact with data and people, has a lot to do with their cultural influences and how it can differ based on cultural upbringing.    What Is Cultural Creativity? Genein explains that Intercultural Creativity is her life's work and dispels the myths that creative thinking is only the ability to choreograph a dance or be artistic in the practical sense of the word.  She explains that creativity is the process of finding a problem and solving it with relevance, value, and novelty. She says that creativity is in all spheres of life, fields, and cultural groups. Genein explains that Intercultural Creativity has to deal with cultural competence and the ability for people to interact with people from different lived backgrounds and lived experiences and detect the similarities, differences, and complexities, adapting as they shift varying through cultural groups.    How to Create an Inclusive Environment   Genein explains that three-hour workshops every once in a while to encourage inclusive environments is not an effective method for corporations as creating an inclusive environment is a lifelong journey.  She explains that creating an inclusive environment is a matter that deals with the mindset and psychological beliefs of a person, and it takes dismantling current beliefs and rebuilding new ones.  Genein explains that in order to see changes towards inclusivity in a work environment, leadership must demonstrate openness and support of inclusivity.  Practical Ways To Build A Culture Of Cultural Diversity  Genein says reinforcement of proper core values demonstrates self-awareness which causes persons to practice introspection and assess what they value and look for in other people.  She explains that when she meets a new person despite their cultural or ethnic background, her first move is to find out about their ‘diamond.' She refers to this as the gifts, skill, talent, or contribution of a person.   She explains that looking for people's diamonds stops her brain from making negative perceptions based on things she might have heard or seen in the media.  She says another tip for building cultural diversity is alleviating our unconscious biases. She explains that our mindset can affect the way we see others so we have to make an effort to change that by becoming more self-aware of the biases that we might have.  She explains that everybody has unconscious biases but we have to make an effort to manage them. She says our brain makes these biases to protect us,

    Have you ever thought about how a Facebook Community could positively affect your business? Self-made millionaire and Confidence Coach Christina Jandali is here to share with us ‘How to Get Paying Clients with Facebook Groups.'   Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Learn about the importance of Facebook Group Communities.   Learn how to transform community members into paying clients/customers.  Unlock the keys to maintaining a successful Facebook Group/Community.   Episode Highlights   Christina The Confidence Coach     Christina shares that her career as a confidence coach helps entrepreneurs who struggle with self-confidence position themselves and their businesses for success. She expresses that this helps them stand up for their brand, message, and what they believe. Christina explains that many entrepreneurs are not confident and miss out on opportunities  because of constant self-comparison and self-doubt.  She states that her responsibility is to boost her clients' confidence and encourage them to know that making any progress is better than none at all.  She shares that she started her business while on maternity leave from her job in the Wealth and Finance Management Industry.  Facebook Groups And Their Benefits  Christina explains that a Social Media profile acts as a window dressing to your digital storefront and a Facebook group is the place where you welcome people into your space.  She says it is an informal “hangout place” for entrepreneurs to have round table discussions and form connections used to build a community. How to Run a Successful Facebook Without Being ‘Spammy'  Christina explains that Facebook groups should not always be about making sales, as that gives the impression that things are only transactional. She explains that this approach is similar to a ‘booty call' and can make customers or clients feel like they are being taken advantage of. Christina encourages entrepreneurs to consider Facebook groups as a place for community and connection building. She explains that they should be more concerned about the people in the community and their feelings as sometimes people miss out on sales because of the experience they have on the receiving end as a potential client or customer.    Christina believes that selling is serving once it is aligned. Once a Facebook group is doing that for its community, the sales will eventually come at the right time.  Why Facebook?  Christina breaks down how creating communities in Facebook groups help entrepreneurs create a safe space for clients. She explains that this space is a part of why people purchase goods and services from a person because they feel a sense of connection and community.  Customers like consistency and a consistent message and will trust and buy a product when they resonate with an entrepreneur's story and what they are trying to achieve.  How To Get Paying Clients  Christina explains that after creating and cultivating a community in a Facebook group, people become eager and interested in what you have to offer. She explains that in order to make a transition from group member to client, it's important to make an invitation or offer to your community based on your product or service.  She explains that it is also important to post content to create a desire and demand for your paid offer or service.  She explains that Facebook groups utilize two types of content; Maintenance content and Campaign content. She explains the difference between both and gives practical ways of how these types of content can help transform group members into paying clients.  She also breaks down how offering a free experience that can solve a problem clients might be having, opens a gap for customers or clients to see the beauty of the product or service and will make them more inclined in purchasing a product or paying for a service.

This week's guest can help you overcome whatever fears you might be having surrounding this decision as we discuss High-Ticket Business Model Myths with Shayla Boyd- Gill.  Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Learn about the reasons for some of the myths surrounding High-Ticket Business Models. Hear how Shyla Boyd-Gill practically debunked these myths to accelerate in her own High-Ticket Business.  Discover helpful tips to help you grow your own High-Ticket Model Business.  Episode Highlights Who is Shalya Boyd-Gill    Shayla is a wife and mother of 6.  Shayla shares how her personal life experiences lead her to become an entrepreneur.   She explains that her business was birthed from her ability to have babies well and that was something she was good at doing. She also shares that after a few failed attempts, she had to figure out how to run a business successfully.  She also shares how she had to change her business model and how a different approach helped her build her business and balance family life.    Reasons Myths Surround High Ticket Business Models  Shayla explains that sometimes people don't believe that customers or clients are willing to pay their asking price.  She expresses that sometimes business owners downplay themselves but should not do that as long as they can deliver the results they advertise.   Shaylea encourages business owners to have an infinite mindset, thinking more about the goal rather than the steps they have to take to get there. She says that this will help them to operate as if it has already happened. This mindset removes doubts and encourages them to believe anything is possible.     High Ticket Business Model Myths                Myth #1  Shayla shares that one of the myths in the high ticket business model is that you have to have a certain level of experience to be successful in your given industry.  She expressed that while entrepreneurs might believe they need years of experience or other persons to validate them as experts in their area, it's unnecessary. However, you can brand and speak highly of yourself and your business as long as the product you deliver matches up to what you say about it.  Shayla also shares how she branded and presented herself as the best in her industry when she began her business.  Myth #2 Another myth in high ticket business models is that it takes too much time to nurture leads.  Shayla debunks this myth by explaining that once a lead is qualified it takes less time to make a sale because this person usually already knows what they want and is already willing to invest.  She says she discourages her clients from talking to "window shoppers," this helps them focus on more qualified leads.  Shayla shares that to find leads, entrepreneurs should not forget the power of word-of-mouth marketing.  She also states that business owners must be clear about the people they want to work with and the type of service offered. She explains that this helps people to better direct persons in need of their services.  Shayla also encourages business owners to find quality leads through speaking and using material from their existing system to fuel these speaking engagements, for example, a podcast or social media postings.  She also states that the benefits of using information from an existing system are that you can be consistent and people will already know what you do.  Myth#3  The final myth Shayla shares is that sometimes business owners don't believe that clients won't buy something from them at a particular price point.  She explains that when you have that thought, it is necessary to ask yourself questions about your audience, such as, are you nurturing the right one? or have you outgrown that audience?

They publish groundbreaking authors and teachers with topics ranging from mindfulness, neuroscience, psychology, trauma therapy, and more. Today  we are joined by Founder Tami Simon in a riveting discussion about "Inner Skills in the Post-Pandemic Economy." Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Discover how to connect with your inner self  Learn about the importance of proper breathing. Hear tips about how to be grounded. Episode Highlights What are inner skills? Tami shares that our outer skills have to do with how we interact with people and take our cues from our culture and environment. She says these skills are affected by how we measure ourselves along the metrics given to us by the world and its influences.  She explains that our inner skills look at what we deem valuable and how we measure success.   She emphasizes that inner skills are best realized when we figure out how connected we are to our sense of purpose, the people we work with, and the things we do.  Tami says we have to use our inner lens to decide our own metric of success that we will look back on at the end of our lives and decide whether or not we achieved what we came to earth to do. She explains that knowing our inner metrics helps to guide us to work towards the things we actually want to achieve and focus on fulfilling them.    How do you know you're disconnected from your inner self?  Tami explains more often than not people experience a disconnect from their inner self. She explains that it usually results in feelings of depression, unaccomplishment, lack of purpose or reason for being, and not being sure of what to create or how to contribute to others.  Tami says that a turn of attention can help one to come back from that feeling of disconnectivity.  She says that we often create a delusion of disconnection in our minds which usually is the thing that triggers but, something as simple as admiring nature can allow us to reconnect.  Tami explains that simple acts of reconnecting help to develop the inner skill of relaxing. She says relaxing teaches us to feel the connection that tells us what is unique for us to do amidst the challenges we face in life.  How To Stay Grounded in a Pandemic Tami explains that feeling connected in your body is the first step to feeling grounded.    She encourages connection exercises within our bodies that help us move away from our internal thoughts and truly experience and live in the moment.    How To Breathe and its Importance   Tami explains the importance of breathing properly and the ways in which it impacts our lives.  She also says the more a person can enjoy each breath they take, the healthier their breathing will be because it's no longer a quick action but an experience.  Tami explains that good breathing is essential to our health; she says it helps us have a clearer mind which benefits decision-making even in challenging experiences.  Can You Train Inner Skills? How ? Tami shares that her past experiences along with studies have helped her to train her mind.  She also explains that by training our minds to be in the present with our bodies, our thinking becomes focused on what is needed in the moment rather than things of the past or the future.  She says we can all train our minds by intentionally engaging in daily practices to be more present.  She talks about the ‘feet and seat' technique and the ways it can help people to come into a feeling of groundedness.  Tami explains that she values people who are grounded and how groundedness can cause a person to be more effective.  Tami explains that our heart is our greatest resource of inner wisdom. She encourages us to get grounded and follow our hearts.    4 Powerful Quotes from This Episode

    In this episode, we are joined by Dave “Laundromat Millionaire” Menz sharing how his humble beginnings did not stop him from being successful as we discuss the topic from Poverty to Prospering. Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:    Hear how Dave Menz went from selling candy in school to a millionaire.   Discover how Dave was able to make his business stand out and grow. Learn how sacrifice can pay off in business.     Episode Highlights Who Is Dave Menz  Dave shares that his family had very humble beginnings, which caused him to face several struggles growing up.  He also shared that as a child in order to purchase snacks or treats, he and his siblings had to learn to be resourceful. He also shared that from a tender age in life, he developed an entrepreneurial spirit that has led him to where he is today.  How Did Dave Begin? Dave shares that, growing up, he learned to survive on the bare minimum. That propelled him to start little business ventures such as mowing lawns and re-selling candy in school.  He shared that as a youngster, he was stubborn and believed that he too could be successful and achieve the freedom and independence that came with entrepreneurship.  He says that he was not encouraged to pursue entrepreneurship by his family but that didn't stop him from going after his goal.  After having a regular 9-5 job for 13 years, learning valuable skills for business, and climbing the corporate ladder, Dave had an epiphany. He realized that he still wanted to be an entrepreneur and started working towards having his own business.  The Business  After making cutbacks in his personal and family life, Dave bought a laundromat, and through thorough research and commitment, he was able to learn the Laundromat business.  He also shares that in his initial introduction he learned that people within the industry did not respect the laundromat business and its owners.  Dave decided that he had to operate differently than other persons in the laundromat industry to make and be the change he wanted to see.  Dave shared that he spent a lot of time and money reinvesting in his business and its operations. He has been able to expand and turn it into a million-dollar business.  Dave's difference in approach to the laundromat business has opened many doors for him financially. He has since published a book and offers coaching to other persons in the industry so that they too can be successful in their business.  Valuable  Advice  Dave says some of the most valuable lessons he has learned are that you should not allow other people to limit you, you should not do anything illegal or unethical and that delayed gratification will bring success.    3 Powerful Quotes from This Episode “If you want something in life you better go figure out a way to earn it.” “There are no limitations on what I can accomplish.” “Don't let others tell you what you can  and can't do; don't let others put limitations on you.” About Dave Menz  Dave grew up in poverty and overcame superhero-like obstacles. His story, revealed in his debut book, Laundromat Millionaire – The Grit to Elevate an Industry' is a life and a business journey that doesn't stop at rags to riches. It begins with a stubborn and obsessive mission to be a business owner with a tenacious and genuine purpose to help others to do the same. Dave teaches the principles of relentless studying of the greats to be great and knowing that even if an industry – like laundry – isn't sexy, you can make it so. His initial foray into business ownership was a side hustle alongside his corporate gig with Cincinnati Bell. He found his first business on Craigslist. Once he owned it, he overhauled it from struggling, losing money and outdated, to one that was a valuable proposition to serve as a vital community asset.

    What does your digital introduction say about you? In this episode, we are joined by Donna Serdula as we discuss “Optimizing Your LinkedIn Profile To Increase Visibility & Boost Your Sales.” Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Learn the importance of a LinkedIn profile  Discover how you can build a strong online presence using your LinkedIn profile.  Learn how you can engage with the right connections to benefit personally and professionally.      Episode Highlights The Importance of a Linked in Profile    Donna shares how a personal experience ledn her to tap into the benefits of having an engaging LinkedIn profile.  Donna describes a LinkedIn profile as a digital-first impression.  She shares that a LinkedIn profile allows you to control your narrative and the way others perceive you. It allows people to get a better look and feel of who you are and your capabilities. How to build a strong LinkedIn Presence    Donna says that one of the struggles professionals face is the lack of ability to write about themselves.  Donna lists a few key factors to consider when building a strong LinkedIn profile: Know your goal/target audience - Figure out the intention behind creating your profile and ask questions such as, is it for a job? Is it to build a network? Etc.  Write a profile that's strategic and targets that particular audience. Know what people are searching for and use keywords that will help your potential audience to find you.  Ensure the imagery of your profile checks out - Do you have things like a good profile photo, background graphic, and customized headline?    How often should I post on Linkedin? How often you post on LinkedIn depends on how large of a platform or the following a person has. Persons with a large number of following may post once or five times per day but, a person with a small following does not need to post every day as LinkedIn is more interested in quality posts rather than the number of posts. What should I focus on?   Donna emphasizes that LinkedIn is not a space for selling. She says it should be used to add value to connections through articles and stories. It is necessary to use hashtags when using LinkedIn so posts can be discovered by other like-minded individuals or people looking for the information you're sharing.  Donna also highlights the importance of audience and user engagement when it comes to Linkedin. She says users should interact with their target audience and it will also help their content to be noticeable when it is shared.  Donna also shares that using scheduling tools can be helpful at times however, LinkedIn puts a cap on those posts so, it is better to post in real-time. She also states that automation tools are frowned upon by LinkedIn.    Making Sales on LinkedIn Donna shares that sales is a numbers game but LinkedIn is a place for research and business intelligence. It helps to make sales if you first find your audience then engage with them constantly before trying to reach out to offer a product or service.    LinkedIn Content Donna states that over time LinkedIn has become more personable. Though those posts do well, users need to set boundaries as it is a space for more professional sharings and connections versus personal ones.    Optimizing your content based on analytics  Donna shares that LinkedIn has a particular ebb and flow and seasonality about it, unlike other applications. As such there will be times when posts receive a high level of engagement and other times when it is low. However, users should ensure they evaluate their connections, use the right hashtags and ensure that they too are engaged with others in order to be engaged by other users.   3 Powerful Quotes from This Episode “People are checking you out whether you recognize it or not, and you have the ability to set forth how you want others t...

Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:    Hear about Les Brown's journey to success and the things that have kept him motivated over the years.   Discover the comeback power that lives within you.   Learn how to stand out in all that you do.    Episode Highlights How do I handle adversity?  Les explains that life is full of disruptions and surprises; recent personal experiences reminded him of how true that is.  Les references Ephesians 6 verses 11-18 to remind us that we will face difficulty but having the Armor of God coupled with characteristics such as courage and resilience will help you overcome these inevitable circumstances. How do I activate my comeback power? Les says to activate your comeback power you have to get to the point of saying enough is enough and realize that you have to fight for what you want in life.  It's key to realize that in life, there will always be a fight to get what we want but, it is not personal, it's just the way it is. People who give up in life don't recognize their strength. Les says that sometimes people give up on their dreams because of the mindset that makes them feel that these goals are impossible.  He encourages us to recognize that we cannot be wimps when it comes to achieving our goals. We have to move from being worriers to warriors.    How do I keep going?  Les shares that even though he faces a personal battle daily, ultimately, the way a person lives is based on what they choose to believe about themself.  He says people must be willing to work on themselves and envision what they see for their future and not buy into societal norms for attention.  He also shared that the attention economy that we live in makes it hard to be noticed or be noticeable. However, as an individual, you have to find a way to stand out. He reminds us that we have to persevere because it's in our DNA to win.   Les Shares His Health Story  Les shared that he has been living with stage 4 Cancer for 29 years and how his faith-based approach to his diagnosis has changed his life.  Les also shared that both fear and faith are a choice however, a faith-driven life requires discipline to push past fear.   How do I stand out? Les shares that many people are not trying to stand out in life but are merely trying to survive. He says that only a few are willing to sacrifice and fight to get to where they want.  Les states that the people who have been most influential on his journey to stand out are his biological mother, adopted mother, Mike Williams, and the literary works of Marcus Garvey, Martin Luther King Jr, and Malcolm X.  He says these people helped him appreciate the value of words and have set the foundation for his career as he now teaches people how to do the same to take people through a transformational process with words. Les also shares what he has been doing in terms of succession planning for his business and its value-added properties. He also shares the importance of laughter and happiness.  Les states that we live in a time where information to reinvent ourselves is easily accessible. He says that if you're not willing to learn, no one can help you; however if you are willing no one can stop you.   Words To Live By Les shares words of inspiration from the following scriptures to encourage you.  Romans 8:28  John 1 vs1  Proverbs 18:21 Matthew 6:33 Luke 17: 20-21   6 Powerful Quotes from This Episode "A setback is a setup for a comeback, we all have come back power.”

    Do you know exactly who you are? Could you be standing in your own way of being great? Our guest in this episode helps entrepreneurs around the world from sabotaging their results and freeing them to be themselves to make six and seven-figure leaps in their businesses. Let us learn "The Secret to Being Unapologetically You" with Mia Hewett.  Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Discover how childhood trauma affects the way we align to our true selves. Unlock the keys to healing to realize your most authentic self.   Discover how aligning yourself can impact your overall quality of life.    Episode Highlights Know who you are! Mia shares that as children, we are born whole and complete; however, after suffering trauma, if not taught to process our emotions, we undergo an internal paradigm shift.   When humans do not learn to process emotions as children they experience a 'pull back. This 'pull back' triggers feelings of loneliness, abandonment, and separation. These feelings usually result in us losing our true self and our perception of who we are. Who can you become?  Mia explains that the only way we can restore our authentic selves is through a step-by-step healing process.    The ‘recipe' for healing Heal Emotional Trauma - Mia says we have to address the emotions that we have not learned to process to come into wholeness with who we are.  Learn to free the mind - We have to remove negative talk from our minds that result from trauma.  Learn to process your emotions.  Learn to no longer fear people or their judgments. Learn how to stay in your power - This is the process of finding your voice and using it to be your most authentic self, despite what others might say. Heal your relationship with money.  Steps to aligning with your authentic you Mia teaches us that our emotions are our internal GPS's and we have to tap into them to help us navigate life and the situations we experience. 1) Always stop, pull back and observe the situation.  2) Get curious with yourself and find out what you are allowing this situation or emotion to mean. Ask yourself questions such as what is the truth and what is the lie?  3) Ask yourself what you want to accept and forgive.  4) Feel the release.  5) Choose your new emotion freely - What is your new decision now that you know who you are and are operating from a space of alignment.  Recognizing your true self  Mia explains that every human being has experienced or has a perception of trauma. Whenever we realize the difference between our trauma-self and our aligned-self is when we can finally realize our self-worth and operate from a place of true alignment.  Our internal GPS will guide us to make decisions that align with what we truly want for ourselves and our lives.    4 Powerful Quotes from This Episode   “The secret to being unapologetically you is really to awaken to who you really are.” “We are born whole, perfect and complete." “Wisdom is the result of you becoming aware of who you really are, and that means becoming aware of who you are not.” “All addicts are people who are trying to use an outside solution to solve an inside problem.”    About Mia Hewett  Mia Hewett helps entrepreneurs around the world from sabotaging their results and freeing them to be themselves to make six and seven-figure leaps in their businesses with the right skill sets, strategies, tools, systems, and team.

    Have you been struggling to tap into your market and create long-lasting, authentic customer relationships? In today's episode with Jack Born, we will learn about "The Psychology Behind Creating Urgency to Convert Customers Authentically.” Here are three reasons why you should listen to the full episode:  Learn how important Psychology is to business. Learn about the power of deadlines.  Learn about Deadline Funnel and how it has been impacting businesses globally.  Episode Highlights Ways Psychology Affects Business  Jack shared that the fundamentals of business are a mixture of Psychology and Mathematics. However, with marketing and sales, Psychology and communication are the main pillars for a business to stand on.  Jack shares how he found out things about the human brain and the psychology behind how it reacts to buying or trying a product and the decision-making process.   The Benefits of Utilizing Deadlines  Jack shares how establishing a deadline for signing up for a product he was launching changed his life and business.  Deadlines are essential and encourage people to take action to be a part of a launch.  Deadlines will not fix fundamental flaws in your messaging. If the message or the pitch is not acceptable or substantial it will not allow you to reap the benefits of customers, subscribers, or potential clients in creating urgency to be a part of your launch.  Deadlines magnify the results of offers customers are interested in.     Things to consider when trying to effectively launch a product: The time - Assess the trends in your market of choice to determine how long you want the product launch to last. The typical launch time ranges between 4-10 or 5-9 days.  Whatever time an entrepreneur uses to launch a product should give them enough time to: a) educate your audience on what the product is and its uses; b) allow potential clients to develop a sense of trust in the product; c) establish your authority in this particular field or area of expertise;  d) communicate and interact with your potential audience and clientele.    Establish a deadline - Customers understand the impact or premise of a deadline. By adding a deadline, consumers are encouraged to make final decisions quicker to help entrepreneurs know who is interested.  3 Powerful Quotes from This Episode   “Everything  that you do is either adding to your trust and credibility with your audience or it's detracting.”   “You're going to have long-term success if you take a long-term vision and approach with your business.”   “One of the fundamental components of a powerful offer is a deadline."   About Jack Born     Jack Born is the Founder of Deadline Funnel. Jack is also the founder of several successful software companies. He lives and breathes marketing and sales psychology, and loves sharing what he knows with entrepreneurs and improving businesses through the software he has developed. He offers training that helps entrepreneurs improve their business and has spoken at many international events spreading his knowledge and expertise.    Curious about Jack's work?
