How many times have you heard about people going home to cry after a tough day at work? Perhaps you've seen your parents carry home the stress of work life because they couldn't release it in the business world. We all know that feelings are signs of weakness that have no place in the business world, right? Today I speak to serial entrepreneur, investor, and author Gary Vaynerchuk about the often undervalued and misunderstood importance of emotional intelligence. After publishing five New York Times bestselling books, scaling his media company to enviable heights, and even pulling in a cool million over at Christies auction, he has a unique understanding of the business world. In this episode, Gary shares how he's busy taking the “teeth” out of business with “kind candor.” He explains that you don't have to choose between being nice, supportive, and empathetic to others and chasing your dreams with intense ambition. Gary's new book, Twelve and a Half: Leveraging the Emotional Ingredients Necessary for Business Success, is available right now. Pick up a copy to see how the 12.5 ingredients of emotional intelligence can transform your career and perhaps your personal life as well. A few more highlights from our conversation: Emotional intelligence and authenticity are more important in business than most realize. You don't have to choose between candor and empathy or ambition and patience. If you leave your feelings out of business, you're missing out on the biggest tool for success. Enjoy! Have a question?

We're at the end of the series. We talk about the sudden collapse of Krupp Steel. First, we discuss Krupp's Holocaust reparations fund, and how they somehow managed to make even that anti-Semitic. Then we talk about Arndt von Bohlen und Halbach, the useless playboy son of Alfried Krupp. He hung out with some really interesting failsons and faildaughters and got up to some hijinks, none of which even approach the horrors of his father. In discussing the collapse, we use the 'business school' approach and the 'parapolitical' approach to understanding what was going on, and hopefully tried to synthesize the two. Illiquidity and Krupp not cutting in the right people, basically, were the two root causes, possibly paired with a controlled demolition. There's also the almost unparalleled lines of credit Krupp was giving to the Eastern bloc which can't really be explained through a straight 'business school' understanding of events. Tax law is discussed, also. Krupp Steel became a foundation, and we discuss the fates of Alfried and Arndt. To finish, I created the Programmed To Chill Matrix of Business Success to quantify Krupp's many, many moral, legal, and dare I say religious failings.

Need some respite from the work day grind? Join the fun on this episode for a light-hearted take on workplace humor. Dan Hill delivers a real tongue-in-cheek take on the corporate lingo and jargon that infiltrates our workplaces. But with every joke he makes, there is a pang of truth: “emojis; the feelings you would be having at work if they were allowed.” Dan's new book; “Blah, Blah, Blah: A Snarky Guide to Office Lingo” (https://amzn.to/3nB3hYB) is written in collaboration with over 50 contributors from across the world (including our one and only Tim Houlihan!) who have collectively provided almost 600 definitions of how the workplace really operates. Our conversation with Dan is not just hilariously funny, he also cracks open the truth on workplace humor being an effective way of tackling serious goals. With this "snarky" book Dan wants to bring the issues of bullying and inequality in the workplace to the forefront of peoples minds. So why use humor to address such momentous issues? In Dan's own words, humor can open your eyes: “A good cartoon, a good joke, I think really captures the essence of a situation, and it does open you up, it's got that aha, twist and turn to a phrase a concept. When we're surprised our eyes go wider, our mouth drops open and means we shut up and we notice the world around us. So I am trying for that element of surprise.” Welcoming Dan back to Behavioral Grooves in this episode was simply a barrel of laughs for us. But please note, that our discussion contains some language you might not want your kids to hear. We really do have a lot of fun creating the Behavioral Grooves Podcast, but like Dan said “having fun IS hard work!”.

What are mission-driven companies and why should you create one? Nick Desai, of HeyRenee, sits down with A.J. to discuss how ideas are just a fraction of what goes into products and platforms. And what really impacts people's lives long term. Listen as Nick, the former CEO of Heal, shares insight into his new venture, HeyRenee, a one-stop healthcare concierge. About our Guest: Nick Desai is a successful serial entrepreneur with the mind of visionary and mission-driven ideas that change the world. He is well-known for his role as the Founder/CEO of Heal. Today, he's creating a new venture with his best friend and wife, Dr. Renee Dua, called HeyRenee, the patient-centric healthcare concierge that will allow people to manage their health through one platform. On today's episode: Meet Nick Desai, Founder, and CEO of HeyRenee – 01:11 Where does Nick see himself on his entrepreneurial journey today? – 03:01 How he views the opportunity to create something out of nothing – 04:01 How reevaluating your measure of success from a money-only measurement helps you grow (and how Nick measures his success now) – 05:00 The realization that changed his entrepreneurial journey – 07:00 How Heal transformed the future of primary care – 07:35 Why your incredible idea is one fraction of resolving customer pain points and where your focus should be – 08:43 Why “best” isn't always best when it comes to finding the right fit for your entrepreneurial team – 13:54 Why everyone needs a Renee, and how his team came up with the name HeyRenee – 17:06 Three things that have helped Nick take the most difficult steps in his entrepreneurial journey – 20:13 Lessons from the trenches in the life of a successful repeat entrepreneur – 24:40 How HeyRenee is pulling together the pieces of the healthcare puzzle for the most connected generation in history – 28:41 The two ways Nick defines his success as an entrepreneur (it's not about Lamborghinis and mansions) and his definition of using his money for good – 37:31 Nick's advice to any aspiring entrepreneur out there (and how every no brings you closer to yes) – 41:35. Key Takeaways: Don't let action get in the way of efficiency. Unfortunately, entrepreneurs often operate out of a jack-of-all-trades mindset. But learning what you are truly good at opens the door to more successful ventures. Entrepreneurship is full of the high highs of “I'm changing the world'', and the lows of “we just crashed and burned,” sometimes all in the same day. Bad times are a part of the journey—don't let them keep you from taking the next step. Success is all about execution. Ideas are common, but the magic happens when you create an actual, life-changing product, platform, or service. Without execution, ideas are worth nothing. To make the world a better place, you have to get specific about what that means to you. Everyone has a “cause” that is near and dear to their heart. Determining what yours is will help you to create more impact. Listening to your “true partners” is even more important than assembling your team. Advice, guidance, and insight from those who know you best can help you make better business decisions. This is why it is crucial to surround yourself with people who inspire and motivate you. How do through tough times as an entrepreneur?[25:55] – “If you assume there's not going to be bad news, you shouldn't be an entrepreneur.

Even if you don't have your own business or have no intent to start a business, the same principles apply to any field of work because what you bring to your workplace, wherever that may be, is YOU. And if you do own a business or are thinking about starting one, remember that everything about business is YOU.

There is a foundational truth at the root of every business that if properly unearthed, will result in phenomenal success. You'll experience all of the success you have ever wished for as an entrepreneur.

Join Michael as he reveals to you how to discover this root of all business success.

In this episode of Start With A Win, Adam welcomes bestselling author and motivational speaker Jon Acuff. Adam and Jon dive into the topic of overthinking and how it can cripple us in so many areas of our lives. According to Jon, overthinking is when what you think gets in the way of what you want. Overthinking is the sneakiest form of fear that keeps us from achieving our goals, taking on new opportunities, or just getting through that tough meeting at work. That overthinking writes soundtracks in our minds—those repetitive thoughts that weigh us down.Jon breaks down his proven plan to change overthinking from a super problem into a superpower through The 3 Rs: Retire broken soundtracks, Replace them with new soundtracks, Repeat those new soundtracks.Jon is the New York Times bestselling author of seven books—his latest, Soundtracks: The Surprising Solution to Overthinking, released April 2021 and is already a bestseller. He's an INC Magazine Top 100 Leadership speaker and has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people at conferences and companies around the world including FedEx, Nissan, Microsoft, Lockheed Martin, Chick-fil-A, Nokia and Comedy Central.

Today on the podcast I am speaking with Rebecca Simon who is a Virtual Service Provider Coach and Founder of The Success Society, a corporation that has helped hundreds of women build, launch, and scale their online service-based businesses. She leads and teaches virtual assistants (VAs) and online business managers (OBMs) through one-on-one and group coaching programs - and did I mention she is a TikTok queen??? Like so many others in the last year, the interest around TikTok has only grown, especially in the business space and Rebecca was quick to jump in to the space. At first, she didn't think much of the platform and figured she wouldn't use it. Not long after, she was yearning for a way to connect with other people in her community, namely VAs and OBMs, so she decided to dive in! After a little over a year on the platform, she has grown her following to over 21K followers and has accumulated 102K+ likes. Interested in learning more, I picked Rebecca's brain on why she thinks TikTok is so popular and compared to other apps, why it is here to stay. We spoke strategy - what genuinely helped Rebecca grow her platform and what content performs best on the platform. We also spoke about the power of community and how to actually convert your followers in to customers. Not only that, we learnt about Rebecca's corporate journey and how she built her business using her employee knowledge. We also spoke about how you can create a business using your work life experience and use it to connect with your audience as a business owner. This episode is jam packed and perfect for anyone who is interested in starting their own TikTok page. In today's episode we discuss: Rebecca's journey in the corporate world and how she started her business Why TikTok is so popular What contributed to the growth of 20k followers in a year What content works on TikTok Converting followers to customers And so much more!

This episode of Start With A Win features David Burkus, a keynote speaker, organizational psychologist, and one of the world's leading business thinkers. And his forward-thinking ideas and bestselling books are changing how companies approach innovation, collaboration, and productivity. His most recent work, Leading From Anywhere: The Essential Guide to Managing Remote Teams, has helped leaders learn how to best adapt to the new world of remote work.Adam and David begin the conversation by reflecting on the events of the last 18 months when COVID-19 sent nearly 50 percent of the American workforce to work from home. David talks about studying organizations that employed alternative workplace practices prior to the pandemic and how he predicts that those practices may now become less of an anomaly and more of the norm. And with that shift, leaders have to start learning now how best to manage remote teams and become intentional about fostering connection, productivity and good communication.David believes that the extremes of making policy decisions around remote work for the organization as a whole—or having no structure around it at all—could both be disastrous for all involved. Instead, organizations should provide guidance but let decisions be made for what that looks like on a team level.Adam and David also discuss the importance of company culture and how that spans far beyond pizza parties and team outings. It spans from core values of the organization to guidelines for communications to how you maintain a sense of connection in a remote environment, which takes intentionality. If you're not intentional about your culture, it falls apart. Organizations that are renowned for their culture have been very intentional about building culture.They wrap up the conversation by discussing “The Great Resignation” and why so many companies have experienced larger than normal numbers of employees leaving their positions and how best to handle these transitions as leaders.Episode Links:https://davidburkus.comhttps://www.amazon.com/Leading-Anywhere-Essential-Managing-Remote/dp/0358533279https://twitter.com/davidburkus?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthorhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/davidburkus/https://www.ted.com/speakers/david_burkusOrder your copy of Start With A Win: Tools and Lessons to Create Personal and Business Success:https://www.startwithawin.com/bookConnect with Adam:https://www.startwithawin.com/https://www.facebook.com/REMAXAdamContoshttps://twitter.com/REMAXAdamContoshttps://www.instagram.com/REMAXadamcontos/ Leave us a voicemail:888-581-4430
