According to McKinsey's latest study, 'more than 19 million US workers—and counting—have quit their jobs since April 2021, a record pace disrupting businesses everywhere. Companies are struggling to address the problem, and many will continue to struggle for one simple reason: they don't really understand why their employees are leaving in the first place. If the past 18 months have taught us anything, it's that employees crave investment in the human aspects of work. Employees are tired, and many are grieving. They want a renewed and revised sense of purpose in their work. They want social and interpersonal connections with their colleagues and managers. They want to feel a sense of shared identity. Yes, they want pay, benefits, and perks, but more than that they want to feel valued by their organizations and managers. They want meaningful—though not necessarily in-person—interactions, not just transactions.'

Episode Summary: Today, we speak with electrical automation and programming specialist Pat Burke. He is the owner of Poolin' Around, LLC, which offers pool and spa mechanical services in the Phoenix Metro Area. We kick off the conversation discussing Pat's first love before he got into the world of pools: BMX racing and, funnily enough, pool riding (which actually became the inspiration behind the name of his future company, Poolin' Around). Pat started cleaning pools in Tucson at the age of 19 and kept at it for a number of years before boredom eventually nudged him into the technical side of the pool industry. The rest of our conversation centers around Pat's expertise in electrical automation and programming, particularly when it comes to repairing heaters. He goes into common heater-related issues and what he looks for in and around the pool when commissioned to install a heater for the first time. Finally, Pat talks about best practices when pricing your services, his go-to resources for pool education, and his tips for organizing your tools and equipment as a technician. Topics Discussed: 01:52 - How Pat got into BMX and pools 15:42 - Transitioning to servicing pools 18:29 - Pat's life cleaning pools at 19 25:59 - Creating new income streams 28:41 - Moving on to gaining technical expertise 32:56 - How Pat's education evolved over the years 37:09 - Troubleshooting a heater 39:25 - Pat's recent noteworthy heater repair 42:11 - Common heater-related issues 50:22 - How to price your services for efficiency 52:17 - What to look for when installing a heater 57:35 - The best resources for pool education 1:03:35 - How to organize your tools and equipment Sponsors: Skimmer Primate Pool Tools Leslie's Connect with Guest: Website Poolin Around Instagram Pat Burke Instagram Connect with Pool Chasers: Website Instagram Facebook Facebook Group Twitter YouTube Patreon Key Quotes from Episode: Pool service is difficult right now, for sure. But it's just the revenue stream. Once you've got the revenue stream going, your expenses are paid for, and you can then tackle the projects where you can make more money. But I think pool services in the valley in general are due for a double. Service is just the rapport. The work, whatever it may be, is where you make the profit.

Where to Start with Lighting and What “Lit Correctly” and “Dim Correctly” Means:With lighting design, Lynne always starts with the lifestyle of the client, regardless of whether she's starting from the ground-up or retrofitting an existing home. From her experience In Florida, Lynne often sees her clients replacing burnt out bulbs with light bulbs that are less than ideal. The rendering typically falls off over time, the dimming sometimes stops working, and Lynne is brought in to correct the situation.When a home is “lit correctly” it means that the lighting is consistent throughout the space. Color consistency is present throughout the home and dim-ability functions as it's supposed to. A properly lit home should create ambiance and just “feel right.”Lighting in the Real Estate Industry:To Lynne, lighting is typically one of the last things clients look at when it involves real estate. Ideally, proper lighting placement should be decided on during the construction phase of the home, specifically during the architectural stage. This allows designers to recommend the right product for the space, design the lighting scheme based around the lifestyle of the client, and provide the client with an accurate budget of what it will cost to properly light a home in today's world.Why is this so important? From Lynne's perspective, people are typically home more often at night than they are during the day, and real estate professionals often fail to familiarize themselves with the existing lighting setup. She strongly recommends viewing properties at night to get a more accurate feel for the overall aesthetic and consistency — and to determine what needs to be fixed before the house is put on the market.Topics Covered and Questions You'll Uncover During this Episode:What is the technology behind the lighting in luxury homes?How has lighting evolved from fluorescent to LED?Why is lighting important and why should real estate professionals and homeowners consider it when selling and building a house?What is the future of lighting in luxury homes?Resources Mentioned Within Episode:Official Website - Illuminated DesignHow to Reach Lynne StamboulyThe Institute for Luxury Home Marketing
Most CPAs work super long hours for the revenue they bring in. Automation is upending the profession in profound ways. And the race for optimized efficiency is on. But there's another path and that path is not automation. It's authority. Here today to talk with me about this as my guest, Rochelle Moulton. Rochelle turns consultants and big thinkers into authorities. She earned her consulting and big thinkers stripes leading introverted brainiacs at some powerful global consulting firms like Towers Perrin and Arthur Anderson. But even better, she has built, led, and sometimes sold more than a few six, seven, and eight-figure consulting businesses and earned the equivalent of a second MBA building authority brands and businesses with hundreds of soloists. Highlights: — “Authority is when other people in your specific niche look to you as a trusted source of information and advice in your field.” — “Building an authority business lets you design a business that allows you to work from your genius zone.” — “Authority is like expertise on steroids, where you're public and you are publishing your point of view out to the world.” — “Selling is like a muscle and it needs to be exercised to really perform at its best.” — “There's an unlimited number of ways you can monetize authority. But the key to think about this is it's the services that you offer and the price tags that you attach.” Rochelle's book: The Authority Code: How To Position, Monetize And Sell Your Expertise https://rochellemoulton.com/book/ Connect with ROCHELLE: Website: https://rochellemoulton.com/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/ConsultingChick LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rochellemoulton/ Want to find out what options you might have for working together?

What if I told you writing six simple emails once could bring ongoing revenue into your subscription box business? There are three email automations (also called flows or sequences)every subscription box owner needs to have in place. Write these once and they'll work for you for a long time. If you've listened to my podcast, seen me on social media, or read my blog, you know I like to keep things simple but effective. That's why I recommend that each automation needs to be only two emails. The three types of email automations you need are: Waitlist flow. New subscriber flow. Abandoned cart flow. Each email has a purpose. Each email contains a call to action. Each email needs to connect with your audience, engage them, and encourage them to take action. These email automations - plus the bonus automation I tell you more about in this episode - account for a full 5% of my monthly revenue. 5%! That's a lot of revenue coming into my business that requires no work from me. I wrote the emails once and they keep working for me… month after month. Join me for this episode as I share more details about each of the three types of email automations you need to put in place right now. Learn what to put in each email and how to write subject lines that get noticed.

Thanks for tuning into the Catapulting Commissions Podcast with your host, Anthony Garcia. Joining the show this week is Matthew Coatney, seasoned C-level product and technology executive, entrepreneur, advisor, author, and speaker with decades of experience helping business and technology work better together. Matthew's book, The Human Cloud, is all about the future of work–freelancing, AI, and the automation revolution. This sort of change was thought to happen in 10 years or so but gained incredible relevancy when the pandemic hit and fast-forwarded this transition. Hand-to-hand combat sales–pounding the pavement–is no exception. Matthew believes we will adapt. Retention and the talent war continues on, and Matthew attributes the turnover to the massively evolving space of sales. The truth is, salespeople will follow the money–that means they will go sell a product that is selling–period. Products that used to have a decade-long cycle now are less than a year. Automation is a hugely discussed topic in sales, as we know. Where it becomes useful is in spaces where a lot of time is spent and not a lot of outward value is created–things like CRMs and other administrative systems. The problem is introducing these new technologies. It's important to not always try to strive for 100% adoption. It's about incrementally reaching benchmarks. Once you get value, it's in a good place. Transitioning into sales leadership, especially from a manager to a VP or higher, can be difficult. This is because what you care about changes. You're going from an individual contributor to having to turn an eye towards the longer-term goals. It's easy to get sucked in a micro-managing mentality, but you have to adapt your leadership style to how your team needs to be led. Give people low-risk tasks where they can learn by failing without impacting their overall success. Freelancing is becoming more and more a part of companies' successes as we move into the future of work. Freelancers are effectively independent contractors with frequent and varying project work. It's often a viable, cost-effective way to get top-level talent. LINKS Matthew Coatney on LinkedIn https://www.matthewcoatney.com/

When you're responsible for the efficient operation of a growing fleet, figuring out how to get more done in less time is critical. It's never been more true – time is your scarcest resource. The good news? There are concrete steps you can take to reclaim hours in your work week. By cutting the inefficiency out of the tasks and reports that you repeat regularly – some of them, daily – you'll save countless hours. That's time you can apply directly to higher-value activities that improve the bottom line of your business.Automation is the key, because every minute spent chasing down fuel cost or mileage so you can accurately bid a new job, scrambling to put a contingency plan in place because of unexpected vehicle downtime, or sifting through hours of dash cam video to find the few frames that will exonerate your driver, is all time spent not making your business more agile, profitable or customer-centric. We've talked to thousands of fleet safety and operations managers, and in today's episode you'll learn 5 best practices that will save you time, allowing you to work on your business instead of your fleet.

On this episode of The CFO Playbook, we share some of the best advice on technology and automation that we've received from recent guests.Lessons we cover in this episode:It's key to build a structural foundation for finance upon automation and technology: Hyper growth companies view technology as the ‘engine room' of growth and a critical foundation for scale. The days of thinking that automation is a “nice to have” are over. Building automation can be far more rewarding for teams than following a well-trodden playbook. Once you've laid the groundwork, with the right technology for your company: Be deliberate in determining which technology tools to invest in and why. Start by identifying your pain points. Automation increases efficiency and creates more time to harness strategic thinking. If done well, technology beats throwing headcount at a problem. Hiring and managing for automation is vital: Automation can be great for employee retention, but you have to hire the right employees to leverage the technology. Great managers should take advantage of the extra time automation allows to challenge and engage their finance team with creative, mission-critical problems. Over time, the skills and requirements of a finance team are shifting to meet the demands of technology-enabled businesses. The need for and benefits of automation aren't going away anytime soon: Automation can help CFOs directly. Sharper forecasting, real-time cost controls, and fewer processes can create space for CFOs to focus on company strategy. With the CFO's responsibilities increasing rapidly over time, automation allows for far more effective partnering with the CEO and the rest of the executive team.

In this episode, we're joined by Dr. Kimberly Nix Berens; a scientist-educator and Founder of Fit Learning. As she shares her story of how she found her way through Behavior Science and Precision Teaching, Dr. Kim also provides tons of anecdotes from her learning experiences with mentors, the development of Precision Teaching, and her personal encounter with Ogden Lindsley. She speaks of her vision for automation of data to allow the collection of data in classrooms, the challenges faced in Behavior Analysis, and her hopes for the upcoming students in the field. Dr. Kim has recently published her first book, Blind Spots: Why students fail and the science that can save them. HIGHLIGHTS 02:29 Dr. Kim's early childhood and upbringing 11:03 Her mentorship with Maria Ruiz at Rollins College 20:13 Her mentorship with Elbert "Ed" Blakely at Threshold Inc. 33:20 Ogden Lindsley and his views on today's Behavior Analysis 50:11 Automation of data: Dr. Kim's vision for the future of Precision Teaching 53:33 Dr. Kim shares her encounter with Ogden Lindsley 1:00:13 Pragmatism & Science: An advice to Behavior Analysts 1:03:27 Dr. Kim's take on the traditional education & professionalization in ABA RESOURCES You can learn more about Dr. Kim on her website: https://www.drkimberlyberens.com/ Visit Fit Learning's website: https://fitlearners.com/ Get a copy of Dr. Kim's book: https://www.drkimberlyberens.com/blindspots Join our The ABA and PT Podcast Facebook Group to get access to the following resources: Facebook group link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/397478901376425 QUOTES 13:05 "The second she opened her mouth and introduced us to the behavioral view, I couldn't believe that there was actually a field of science as precise as biology, but with the power to effectively change human behavior in a way that improves the quality of life for all people on the planet." 25:14 "Skinner himself stopped measuring rate when he started moving into looking at academic skills. And the problem is because of the influence on how education does stuff. It's behavior analyst trying to fit our model into an education framework. Somehow, when you think about teaching kids stuff, all of a sudden education becomes the dominant way of thinking about how to do it rather than accelerating behavior is no different than decelerating behavior and it requires the same science." 32:38 "One of the applied areas that aren't stuck is people who do Precision Teaching. The discoveries that we make every single day at Fit Learning are profound and unfortunately, that's not happening in a lot of other areas of Applied Behavior Analysis because no one's using science number one, and no one's using a language of science that allows people to share discoveries in a powerful way so that they can propel the field forward." 1:01:48 "Science gives you the ability to not be dogmatic and self-righteous. Science is inherently humble, skeptical, and never satisfied."

When customers leave negative reviews or complain about a brand or business on the internet, they just want to be heard, express their frustration, and want some sort of resolution. Businesses that take the time to reach out to unsatisfied customers can make things right. But how can they do that consistently and at scale? Today's guest is Dave Lehman, President and COO at Birdeye, a platform that allows local businesses to collect reviews, run surveys, and get referrals to better engage with customers. Dave talks about how businesses should make online reputation management a top priority and do it the right way. Some of the highlights of the show include: Birdeye Survey Guide - 2021 State of Experience Marketing: 57% view reputation management as more important than advertisements 88% believe there's a direct connection between reputation and revenue Birdeye: Helps businesses grow, attract, and convert new/existing customers Buyer Behavior: Shift from content to trusting shared customer experiences Reputation Management: Ignoring it is missing out on customer opportunities What are you looking/searching for? Relevancy, distance, and prominence Automation and Democratization: Make it easy for everybody to leave a review Digital Connection: Engage, respond, and listen to people on preferred platforms Indicators: Set goals, select metrics, and measure progress to drive improvement Mistakes: Marketers avoid responding to reviews and don't ask all for reviews Links: Dave Lehman on LinkedIn Dave Lehman's Email Birdeye Survey Finds 57% of Marketers Now Emphasize Online Reputation Management Over Advertising HubSpot Blaze Pizza Ben Sailer on LinkedIn CoSchedule Quotes from Dave Lehman: “Most people will skip the first three ads or whatever. It's almost become default behavior.” “When somebody lands on your site, again, what are the conversion rates like? Are they getting that first taste of a real good experience themself when they start engaging your brand?” “If you're looking for that prominence as a business, it's all about two things - review count and review score.” “It's got to be super easy to engage with you as a business.”
