The Joyful DVM Podcast - Encouraging and Empowering Veterinarians, Veterinary Technicians and Veterinary Teams to create Joyf
Thinking about quitting Vet Med?You aren't alone.Thoughts of leaving this sh*twshow behind are pretty common for a lot of us.Ya, Really!But, why?Here's where it gets interesting…Why are you thinking about leaving your job?Why are you thinking about ditching the profession altogether?My guess: the VMVs…Blame directed at the Vet Med Villains is the most common response to “Why” we leave Vet Med.Makes sense.Seems logical.Feels justified.We experience a lot of suffering at the hands of those villains…Entitled clientsCranky coworkersGreedy bossesTerrible schedulesInadequate payCrushing student loan balancesTOUGH LOVE: WRONG ANSWER!The VMVs are never the reason we change jobs or leave the profession.We flee because we want to get away from the way we feel in relation to the VMVs.It may seem like an insignificant difference, but it's actually a critical differentiation!See, when our Why for leaving blames the VMVs, then we hand over our power and our personal well-being to them. We make them responsible for our experience, and life choices… but they never are.Changing jobs or leaving for these reasons has us running away…We are leaving to get away from how we feel as quickly as possible… We leave because we believe we will feel better anywhere else…(and we probably will, for a while). The problem with this is what comes NEXT: more of the same…When we leave to get away, we don't intentionally choose where we are going… But, more on that topic next week.Right now, consider this…When all the dialogue and beliefs about why our job is so hard focus on blaming the VMVs… And when we make decisions about our own lives and careers as a result of what we believe about the VMVs and their influence… And when we draw conclusions about our own abilities and future potential from a mental space primarily occupied by thoughts about the VMVs…Then we really do live our lives at the mercy of the VMVs… which we will never control and never change.Living as a passenger in our own lives sucks.Want to learn more?

Tristen Norman is the Head of Creative Insights, Americas at iStock and Getty Images. She operates as one-part visual anthropologist and two-parts data scientist working across disciplines to understand what motivates visual selection, identify trends within visual language, and use this data to help shape the development of Gettys creative content globally. Leveraging consumer research and social and cultural listening and pairing it with proprietary data, Tristen hones in on the valuable insights that feed the development of Getty Images' own creative collections. A passionate advocate for elevating marginalized voices within creative spaces, Tristen also plays a critical role in supporting and advancing initiatives and partnerships to champion diverse visual narratives at Getty Images and beyond. Tristen's experience stems from over nine years in creative design, market research, and brand strategy. Before joining Getty Images, Tristen was most recently a Senior Experience Strategist at Wunderman, where she was responsible for developing creative, data-driven omnichannel creative brand strategies for clients across various industries. Tristen earned her Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing from Temple. On this episode of Destination on the Left, I talk with Tristen Norman about how the era of ‘no normal' has impacted content creators and what destination marketers can do to ensure they're telling multilayered stories. We also discuss the importance of interrogating our content choices to improve our marketing and stress that it is the little choices that make the most significant impact. What You Will Learn in this Episode: Why wellness is an ongoing content trend and how we can make it a universal experience How to create multilayered stories to share with prospective visitors The importance of remaining authentic as a brand What kind of imagery consumers are looking to engage with How to take a deep dive into your content and identify the gaps How Getty Images' VisualGPS tool can help you diversify your content library Why Authenticity is Key In today's travel marketing landscape, authenticity has become paramount, and it's essential for brands to share authentic images and narratives. Tristen explores the challenge of maintaining authenticity while telling layered stories and emphasizes the importance of investing time, resources, and energy in the process of authenticity. Through image testing and surveys, Tristen's team discovered that consumers respond most to images that represent slices of real life. These visuals should reflect diversity, different cultures, communities, and lived experiences. Take a Step by Step Approach to Curating Your Content DMOs and brands need to analyze their existing content and identify how they can best fill any gaps, such as concentrating on little-known attractions of their destination. Incremental changes can lead to a profound shift in the audience's relationship with a destination. Rather than attempting to solve all the world's problems at once, brands should take a step-by-step approach, assessing what's available, what can be swapped in, and what resources might be needed. Starting with small, manageable changes is the key to building an authentic brand narrative that resonates with audiences. Tools for Content Creators When it comes to tools and resources for content creators and marketers in the travel industry, Tristen mentions several options available through Getty Images. She also shares how to stay updated with industry insights, trends, and conversations via their VisualGPS Insights tool, which provides data and insights on global visual content trends, helping marketers make informed choices.

Imagine a meticulously planned space mission, where precision, openness, and shared understanding permeate every stage, from engineers poring over blueprints to astronauts preparing for liftoff and ground control teams monitoring every telemetry detail. Transparency, serving as a beacon amidst the dark expanse, ensures each decision is rooted in a shared mission objective, fostering an environment where mistakes are minimized, and success is within grasp. This celestial journey parallels the world of B2B SaaS, a digital cosmos where similar principles of precision, openness, and shared understanding drive success. The open-source model emerges as the guiding star, illuminating the path towards collaborative product development, informed by clear insights into user needs and market dynamics.Guiding us on this digital odyssey is Ashley Kramer, CMO and CSO of GitLab, who embodies the principles of openness and transparency, quintessential for success in the SaaS world. Her experience in adopting these principles at GitLab, coupled with her literal journey as a former NASA employee, make her an invaluable guide for navigating the open-source universe. In today's episode, we dive into Ashley's insights into the open-source model, unearthing the transformative power of transparency and the pivotal role of consistent release schedules. Tune in as we explore how Ashley applies these principles at GitLab and how they can fuel your SaaS journey. It's time to strap in for an enlightening voyage through the SaaS cosmos.High Level Overview:Transparency and clear communication are fundamental in a company, particularly in a SaaS or technology organization. Implementing a "safe framework" to manage the dissemination of sensitive information can alleviate fears about over-sharing and nurture trust within teams.Leveraging personal experiences can significantly enrich product development and marketing strategies. Direct exposure to user's pain points and needs results in a more empathetic and targeted approach.Implementing a regular release schedule, like GitLab's policy of releasing every 22nd of the month, instills discipline, creates a predictable environment, and enhances team alignment towards goals.Flexibility in roles, as demonstrated by Ashley juggling CMO, CSO, and Acting CTO roles, can offer a broader perspective of the company's functions and foster better collaboration across different units.Building a product that you yourself would use, as Ashley did when she chose GitLab as a platform while at Alteryx, leads to a more user-centric product, ultimately boosting its usability and appeal to customers.Ashley Kramer's Guide to Open-Source:Open-source is the cornerstone of the tech industry today. It endorses a culture of collaboration and transparency, fuelling shared growth, and promoting innovation. The open code permits constant evolution, security enhancements, and adaptations to meet diverse needs.Foster Transparency: Encourage openness not just in the product code but also in the company culture. This openness should extend to company policies, decision-making processes, and communication, creating a sense of inclusion and trust among team members.Clear Communication Guidelines: Establish a "safe framework" that outlines what information can be divulged and what should be kept confidential. This clarity eliminates confusion and reduces the risk of improper disclosure of sensitive data.Harness the Power of Customer Feedback: Customer feedback can provide invaluable insights into the product's strengths and weaknesses. This feedback should be regularly analyzed and integrated into the product development process to continuously enhance the product's value and align it more closely with user needs.Regular Release Schedules: Consistent, regular release schedules contribute to operational efficiency. This practice instills discipline in the team, ensures that developments are timely, and provides a sense of predictability for both the team and the customers."Dogfooding": Use your own product, a practice often referred to as "dogfooding". This enables the team to gain firsthand knowledge of the product's usability and performance, identify potential issues early on, and develop a deeper empathy with end-users.When embarking on an open-source strategy, remember that it involves more than just keeping the code open. It's a cultural shift towards openness, collaboration, and ongoing learning. It involves building a community that's united by a shared vision and is actively contributing towards the product's growth and success.Further LearningsFollow Ashley on LinkedIn and Twitter.
We often talk about raising capital, but how do you bring in big money? As in really BIG money? We're talking more than $2 billion from broker-dealers and investment advisors? Joining me to talk about one of my favorite aspects of real estate investing is my new friend Brad Blazar. Brad is the author of the fantastic book Winning at the Capital Game and a highly sought-after speaker when it comes to raising capital and with good reason. Don't take my word for it. In fact, before recording this podcast, Brad was leading a bootcamp with people who'd traveled as far as England and Australia just to learn from him. So, if you're looking to buy your next $100 million asset by leveraging broker-dealers, Brad knows precisely how to do it and is here to share his secret sauce. In this conversation, we talk about why there's no better investment than real estate (and how to prove it to your potential investors), how to go from raising $2 million to hundreds of millions, and the common mistakes you don't want to make on your way up. Key Takeaways with Brad Blazar How rising interest rates have actually made things better for Brad. Why you're never going to raise $2 billion by yourself–and how to scale with syndication. How to survive due diligence with broker-dealers in a notoriously litigious industry. What broker-dealers want to see in a potential deal. How Brad transitioned from being a landlord to raising money for himself. Want the Full Show Notes?

This week I am talking to A++ operator Sergio Radovic, founder and CEO of Dyper - a $100M run-rate DTC CPG brand located in Scottsdale, Arizona. - Sergio shares his background as a technologist and his previous roles in various startups and technology companies. - Exploring Sergio's journey into the diaper business driven by his desire to address the environmental impact of traditional diapers. - Sergio discusses the hidden environmental consequences of traditional diapers, such as the use of plastic and their contribution to landfills. - The mission of Dyper is to create a responsible and sustainable diaper alternative using bamboo as a primary material. The bamboo plant's fast growth and minimal need for fertilizers make it an environmentally friendly choice. - Dyper's unique approach involves a cradle-to-compost solution, including a pickup service for used diapers in select cities. - Quantifying the impact of Dyper's products on carbon emissions and landfill waste. The challenges of being a challenger brand in the direct-to-consumer space, particularly in the highly regulated and competitive diaper market. - Dyper's strategy to capture emerging trends in sustainability and cater to customers willing to pay a premium for eco-friendly products.

Today, I talk about when to train to your weakness, rather than outsource to it because I just took Fighting Pistol at Tactical Response in Camden, Tn and was blown away with how much I was able to learn in just two days. We'll dive into the advantages and disadvantages of both approaches, so you can make informed decisions for your personal growth.

Not to worry, the online price of a 2x4x8 is still $3.35. The tag's been missing anyway the last few weeks so I've had to look it up anyway. While I need to re-organize some tools, I don't need to buy any more! Dollar Tree was the usual first stop. We almost always find some small useful things there. The food coolers in the back are well-stocked. Some of the selections have changed in the drink coolers, but they're also pretty full now. We were behind someone in line who bought a lot of groceries, so that's certainly still possible. Some things will be cheaper elsewhere, so be careful of that, especially on cans of veggies. Aldi was our final stop. Eggs have continued to drop, now at $1.62/dozen. Since I have read of impending shortages of coffee, Sonia grabbed an extra jar of both normal and joyless coffee (she'll drink one or the other, depending on time of day; now that the weather is warm, I have not been drinking coffee). We found everything else we wanted, including canned cat food. A gallon of untainted regular gasoline remains at $3.999/gallon. The stuff corrupted by ethanol is considerably cheaper. Frugality Tip from Margo Here's a little tip on your journey to self reliance. Figure out how to make things that you want. At the LFTN Workshop I saw a really cool leather holder for a multi tool, pen, and flashlight. So he took it off and I traced it on a piece of paper to get a general idea of size. While I don't have a "pattern" done yet, I made one. It's pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself. Also I didn't have large pieces of leather laying around, but I did have an old purse I haven't used in a year or so, so I cut that up and repurposed it. So this cost me a conversation with a man that had something I really liked, and some time. You can do whatever you put your mind to, you just have to try. And sometimes (as in this case) try again. This was my third attempt. So go make something! Operation Independence Rejiggering the big picture construction plan for the Holler Homestead to integrate a spa pool long term. Have not figured out how to make it happen but I am working on the plan. Sheep money paid for flea meds for the LGDs for the year. Main topic of the Show: Train to Your Weakness You know how they say hire to your weakness? That is great advice, but it does not cover when you should address a weakness you have through learning to be stronger in that area. Hard75 gives me time for deep thinking and self reflection - avoidant behavior regarding self defense Story of what mentally stood in my way of taking Fighting Pistol or really any training class The MOMENT The amplification effect Lessons learned at fighting pistol It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be - sort of like unloading the dishwasher takes 90 seconds, but you can spend all day not doing it because you do not have time True to Tactical Response's MO, it tore down mental barriers that I had Key to success was coming in with a novice's heart and mind So here are some thoughts on the when and why of training to your weaknesses. Understanding Your Weaknesses and Strengths Defining weaknesses: Exploring areas where you lack proficiency or experience, and acknowledging their impact on your goals and performance. Recognizing strengths: Identifying the areas where you excel, have passion, and find yourself naturally inclined to succeed. Establishing your growth mindset: Understanding that weaknesses can be improved upon and strengths can be leveraged for growth. Why Train to Improve Weaknesses What is my potential? What will it take to improve, and what am I trading off? What happens if I don't train To run, you must first walk The Art of Outsourcing Weaknesses Benefits of outsourcing - dont do things you hate Leveraging strengths to go further - and being there for your loved ones (Drywall example) Find Balance Self-reflection and introspection: (Your passion, your skillset, your goals) Re-evaluation on a schedule Conclusion: Personal growth is a dynamic process that requires balance between training to improve weaknesses and outsourcing them when that is a better fit. When you choose to grow, you sometimes choose the hard way - but as my friend Kevaan Kjar likes to day, “Do hard things now so you don;t have to do harder things later.” Stay tuned for future episodes where we'll continue to explore topics aimed at helping you cultivate a growth mindset and unlock your full potential.

Check out AMMOAuthor Marketing Mastery through Optimization is the best option for indie authors to sell their books. Check it out here.Build BridgesHere's a real-life example of why we need to build many bridges to our readership. This week on Thursday evening, I was notified my Facebook Ad Account was restricted, shutting down my ads and preventing me to run any until the review is complete.The issue was caused by a glitch Facebook is experiencing. I won't bore you with the details, but the moral of the story is simple: I did nothing wrong, and yet, my business of selling books came to a screeching halt.And I'll be honest, for about three hours on Thursday night, I sulked, pouted, and licked my wounds. For me that looked like a few extra cans of Miller Lite and a Zelda, Breath of the Wild binge. If you know, you know.But enough about my woes, let's dive back into our discussion about libraries. And I'll start by sharing some great news. The 9 Lives of Marva DeLonghi sold 7 copies into the Nebraska Libraries System Oakland Branch this week. I donated one copy to the library and followed up to see how it was doing on loans.The librarian had read and enjoyed it, and it had remained checked out since so she bought seven copies for the local book club. You can imagine my excitement.All this happened because I prioritized quality first. So that's what we're going to talk about today. How do you ensure your book is high-quality enough to retain the readers you gain?Get Reviews by GivingI recently stumbled on a YouTuber who publishes unique reviews, but what's different about his channel is its approachability. It's vulgar. It's accessible. It's fun. Check it out: Thoughts Before REM.I'm excited that the channel is going to give a shoutout for my novel, and I'll get you a link when it's live.Next up, I got a book review from a former podcast guest, Jason Cheng, and you can read it in its entirety here. I struggled with many elements of the review, and did the unforgivable thing, sending a comprehensive rebuttal to him, in private. Do like I say, not like I do, in this regard. And it may be wise not to read reviews. Our health matters, and reviews tend to be bad for our health.TRBM is a Listener-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.Quality Matters, and It Costs TooNo surprise here, but quality is the most important aspect of any writer's journey.You simply can't expect to be a bestselling author much less sell anything if you choose to publish books that lack professional editing and formatting. Lately, I've begun to question my firm stance on buying a cover from a professional artist, because I've seen that many successful, six-figure authors do just fine with in-house book cover designs.At the same time, I still can spot a homemade cover almost always. And if I am like other readers, the hesitancy I feel to read a book with a homemade cover may affect sales.But here is where things get interesting. Consider, libraries are peopled by employees who have masters degrees in library science. These people spend their entire days surrounded by books published by the Big Five publishing houses. That means librarians not only have a keen eye for cover art of a certain kind, but they'll be biased toward cover art that doesn't meet the standard they're used to seeing. Excepting librarians from your hometown and those you've made close relationships with, every pitch to get your book in the library will be happening electronically or over the phone, which means you have only the appearance of your book cover to make that first impression. Nothing you can do can change how a librarian will see your book cover.If the librarian thinks the book cover appears amateurish what are the chances your book ends up on those library shelves? So, if for no other reason than that you want to consider professionally designed but covers.But all the work you do on a book cover means nothing if the work you do inside the book doesn't merit readership. Pudding ProofI've lately been swapping reviews with authors on Twitter in an effort to get my reviews on Amazon higher. You'd be shocked by the number of authors I've read who lack proofreading. Run-on sentences abound. Commas are missed or out of place. Quotations are missing or out of place. Worse, you see authors who have had no developmental editing on their books, trying to sell them through Amazon. It may work for a while, but if you approach a library with a book like that you will have no chance of success.But why should you care about libraries? Remember last week how we talked about the number of libraries available to carry your books? Nearly 20,000 if you need a refresher.With a disciplined process and a good plan in place you could easily sell $200,000 or more worth of books to library's in just a week of time. Can you imagine the opportunities presented to you if your books were in that many libraries at that kind of volume? And first impressions matter for a lifetime. If you are able to get a book into libraries at scale, every future book you write will have a first impression that is positive and lasting. That means as quickly as you can write quality books you have a six-figure customer to buy quality books.Time To ReflectRight now if you're in a similar position to me in that you have a small income on your published work and few reviews, you may be wondering if it's worth spending several thousand dollars on your book, when that's money you might have to put on a credit card and pay interest charges to repay.The little Dave Ramsey on all our shoulders tells us debt is bad. But the little Dave Ramsey on all our shoulders is lying.Actually, Dave Ramsey in real life is lying. Mostly…If you have a problem with excessive debt it can be really great to do the Dave Ramsey thing, but once you've learned discipline with your money there are much smarter ways to control your finances. Enough said about that. This isn't a finance podcast. Though, sometimes I wonder if I should start one…Businesses Require InvestmentsThe point I'm making is that you want to spend money building a great book and I use the word build intentionally. This is art, but it is also business. Libraries expect good businesspeople to bring them high-quality products that have been designed for readers to experience the least friction. If you can do that, you have a great chance of adding a full-time revenue stream to your current income for every book you publish as well as tens of thousands of readers, because, look, I read from library's and many of you do as well, and how often have we fallen in love with an author and bought other books by them after checking one out from the library.Finally, remember that this is a strategy that works well for self published or traditionally published authors. If you went the traditional route you might not be thinking much about the design of your book because the publisher did it for you, but that doesn't mean you don't have to design professional materials around the package you pitch to libraries.That means getting yourself a professional email address. The days of using Gmail are finished. You now need an @authorname.com email. If that sounds intimidating, you can just go to ZOHO and set up one email address that will have a business name domain associated with it, and you'll pay nothing.When it comes time to begin pitching libraries to carry your books you'll want to make sure your pitch deck looks as professional as any business has ever looked. But now we're starting to move into topics for future weeks.Your homework for this week's library episode is to look at the books you have already published and reflect: are they professionally designed? Have you developed a cover that librarians will want on their shelves? Is the editing and proofreading of your manuscript at a professional level? Are you afraid to spend money? And if you are afraid to spend money publishing your books, ask why you expect to make money on something you didn't invest in.Until next week. Write hard, and think about investing in you.TRBM is a listener-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber.

I understand the frustrations of managing a large number of SKUs and dealing with messy PPC performance. I've got valuable insights to share to you on this latest video.With 417 active and 940 inactive products, you're handling over 2,500 sponsored product campaigns. Despite May being a peak month, your recent performance around Mother's Day was disappointing. But I've discovered a little-known feature that can transform your advertising. The eligibility status report shows which products are eligible for ads. Access it in the bulk operations tab of Amazon Advertising.Running a bulk sheet download and examining eligibility status is crucial, especially for a high SKU account. You don't want ineligible products affecting campaign performance. Correcting eligibility issues, like wrongly labeled "for adults," improves ad visibility and sales.Should you use automated PPC tools or manage ads manually? Historically, manual management outperforms automation, but if time is limited, automated tools can reduce costs. However, for growth, manual management is essential.To address your PPC challenges, create a single automatic campaign for all products, bidding at five cents, with each product having its own ad group. Though not scalable, it's a performance booster. Leveraging low costs per click, even with lower conversion rates, yields impressive results.Utilize help files and tutorials to master bulk operations. Excel filters help prioritize optimizations, focusing on high ACoS, top spenders, or duplicate keywords. Analyzing conversion rates, spend levels, and clicks highlights top performers, enabling bid adjustments.Remember, strategic management and continuous optimization unlock the full potential of Amazon PPC. Good luck on your journey as an Amazon seller!00:00 Did you Know Bulk Sheets Can Do this?

Passive Investing from Left Field
In today's episode, we re-release our exclusive masterclass on building wealth through passive real estate investing. In partnership with Tribevest and their Chief Storyteller, Julian McClurkin, we covered passive investing in real estate. This episode is a must-listen for anyone who wants to understand more about passive investing in real estate syndications. We delve into the basics of real estate syndications, the pros and cons of passive syndications, and most importantly, how to pick a sponsor. Whether you're a beginner investor or an experienced one, this episode will serve as an excellent refresher for you. About Julian McClurkinJulian McClurkin has literally traveled the world throughout his professional basketball career as a Harlem Globetrotter, supporting and entertaining families and communities. Leveraging his engagement and relationship-building skills, Julian now joins Vision Realty, having built a diverse portfolio in real estate sales, investing, and renovations. Here are some power takeaways from today's conversation:[07:47] Why it would be better to invest in real estate than index funds[10:20] Ways to spread the risk of investing[15:13] Types of investors who qualify for syndication[22:26] The process of investing in syndication[26:27] Passive Syndications: pros and cons[28:38] The tax benefits of syndication[36:10] What the velocity of money means[40:37] What “full cycle” means for investorsEpisode Highlights:[07:47] Real Estate Investing vs. Index FundsInvesting offers various options, one of which is index funds that can give good returns over time with minimal effort. However, investing in real estate provides steady cash flow via rental income and can force appreciation by improving the property, which is not possible with index funds. Real estate investors can benefit from the syndication operator who handles the process, allowing them to enjoy the perks of their investment. On the other hand, index funds bet on the value of paper assets and do not offer cash flow or dividends as in real estate investments.[22:26] The Process of Investing in SyndicationInvesting in syndication involves upfront due diligence, including vetting the sponsor and analyzing the deal using tools like a sponsor screener and deal analyzer. Once you've invested, you'll receive documents like a private placement memorandum and subscription agreements to sign. You then send the wire and wait for cash flow, receiving monthly or quarterly distribution checks and reports to keep track of the property's performance.[26:27] Passive Syndications: Pros and ConsPassive syndications have major advantages, such as the ability for investors to benefit from the experience and expertise of a syndicator, who acts as a sponsor or manager for the investment, allowing them to invest in larger deals. Syndicators may also use tax advantages such as cost segregation and bonus depreciation, which can help investors reduce their tax burden. However, passive syndications also have downsides, including the lack of control investors have over the asset and the lack of liquidity, which can tie up capital for several years without the option of selling the investment, making it challenging for investors who need access to their funds in the short term.[28:38] The Tax Benefits of SyndicationWhen investing and making money, taxes are the biggest factor working against you. However, investing in real estate allows you to reduce, defer, or even eliminate almost all of the tax burden as the tax code is written to benefit real estate investors. Depreciation can be used to offset almost all of your passive gains, which means that if you invest in syndication correctly, you won't have to pay tax on any of the cash flows you receive, and it will be deferred, with recapture happening later. By investing in more syndications, your tax bill will go down significantly.Resources Mentioned:https://www.tribevest.com/partners/lf

I welcomed Luc Hédou, CEO of Workaxle, to discuss the latest innovation in Workforce Management. Innovation in Workforce Management? It's true! A shift is happening. When it comes to improvement to Workforce Experience, Workforce Management (WFM) makes a MUCH BIGGER DENT than your Core HR. Trust me. In fact, we're seeing WFM shift to Phase I transformation work more and more often. We're seeing scheduling solutions make a world of difference to productivity and retention, and we're seeing significant experience payoffs when organizations invest in WFM. Yes, Workforce Management is time and attendance. It's also demand forecasting, scheduling and rostering, leave and absence management, and on-demand wages. These are make-or-break moments that matter when it comes to day-to-day workforce experience. That's why a little goes a long way when you double down on Workforce Management, and it's also why starting here can be the trigger for changing your entire HR Tech stack.In the Now of Work, time and talent are at a premium and waste is expensive. Leveraging the power of your WFM solution is key, especially if you want to impact Employee Experience in an measurable way. How else can organizations increase efficiency, meet customer demand with talent supply, and change the way people work?

65. Leveraging Opportunities to Show Your Value Today's episode is focused on how to leverage opportunities to show your value. When you look at the choices that you make every day, are you focused on doing the easy things that keep you in the background or the harder things that could put you into the spotlight? This isn't always a conscious thought, but more than likely the easy things are what you already know and would be considered the safer choices. Finding gaps, problems to solve and identifying solutions can be hard and that is why no one else is doing them. Choosing these harder options are giving you a way to stand out. They can help you be more visible and give you more career options. They are scarier to do and will require you to put yourself out there, but what if you did them well? What if people saw you in a new way because you tried doing them? Focus on doing something that pushes you out of your comfort zone and can provide so many more opportunities for you. In this episode: Are you staying safe or are you finding ways to put yourself out there in a bigger way? Look for the problems that no one else is solving so you can stand out. What can happen if you work on gaps, problems and solving them? Taking the initiative to solve problems and gaps shows your management, your interest in building skills, and being ready for more. Are you spending your time working on the high value things? Take advantage of opportunities to build a bigger career for yourself.
