73: How to Improve Company Culture Amid the Great Resignation

When you hear the words “company culture,” what comes to mind? Workplace culture is a hot issue these days, especially as it relates to jobs and the so-called “Great Resignation.” What do employees really want: freedom, tangible perks, a more inviting company culture? CEO and Entrepreneur Jay Steinfeld shares his story of success and expertise when it comes to corporate culture.  “If you want to do things of consequence, if you want to build consequential things, I think you must first help people become consequential.” - Jay Steinfeld, on improving company culture. On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Jay Steinfeld to chat about corporate culture and the impact it can have on a company's workforce. Jay was the founder and CEO of Global Custom Commerce, which operates the world's number one online window covering retailer, blinds.com. Jay bootstrapped the company in 1996 from his garage with just $3,000; Global Custom Commerce was acquired by The Home Depot in 2014. Jay remained the company's CEO, and later joined The Home Depot's Online Leadership Team.  After stepping away from these roles in early 2020, Jay has increased his involvement in numerous private company boards and serves as a Director of the public company, Masonite. He also teaches Entrepreneurship at Rice University's Jones Graduate School of Business, and supports numerous charities. Jay is an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, and has earned a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Houston Technology Center.     Listen to Kelly and Jay talk about company culture and the Great Resignation:How did Jay start his business, how did it grow, and how did he make a name for himself in the booming world of tech and entrepreneurship? Jay says he frequently tells entrepreneurs to “experiment without fear of failure.” Experimentation is necessary and key to evolving and growing any venture. When he began his company in the 90's, it was before even Amazon was born. He built his business one step at a time, and gave himself permission to fail. The idea of failure can be terrifying for small businesses because of the heavy stakes on the line. How does Jay advise small or startup businesses to experiment and take risks with confidence? What does Jay wish he'd known before he started his business in the 90's?  How did Jay approach hiring decisions while growing his business? How can business owners know when to expand hiring, even when finances are tight?  Did dynamics change when Jay sold his business to Home Depot? Jay shares how the transition went: the CFO said they'd expected him to get tired of them and quit after 90 days, but Jay stayed on for 7 years after the acquisition.   Jay explains the idea of business “love languages” and how to find harmony with team members of different strengths, disciplines, and personalities.  When Jay's company reached significant milestones over the years, how did they impact the company (and the way Jay ran the company)? Jay details his definition of success and the way it informs his strategic choices in both workplace culture and business operations.  Kelly asks Jay to describe the moments when he “felt” successful along the journey of growing his business. He shares he felt many of those moments over the years, though sometimes the impact of his success came to him retroactively.  As the head of a growing business, Jay says he often felt he was seen as intimidating or scary, which greatly bothered him because he genuinely wanted everyone's voice and feedback.  How does Jay feel employee's thoughts on their superiors plays into today's Great Resignation? What advice does he have for companies to make their management teams more approachable and receptive? Jay says what people want most is autonomy. Why not give more generosity to employees? More traction, more upward mobility? More transparent conversations?

While studying psychology and neuroscience as a Harvard undergrad, my guest Will Nitze became fascinated with the human brain and how it functions. After graduating and taking a job in selling and marketing software, he found himself working long hours and feeling terrible as a result. Realizing that his diet (or lack thereof) played a key part in his physical and mental breakdown, Will became obsessed with this idea of “on the go” brain food.

The inner attitude of expectancy and the outer results always match each other exactly. Expectancy in our minds is the cause of everything that happens in our lives—both good and bad. How many times do we say, “I knew that would happen!” when something disastrous befalls us? And when something good happens, how often do we say, “I just knew that would come true”?   We are right both times. What we expect always happens. As we learn to discipline our minds, our job is to be sure that what we are expecting is what we want to experience. Powerful forces are set in operation by our attitudes of expectation. And these productive attitudes can be cultivated. DONALD CURTIS, a leading teacher and writer in the field of New Thought for more than forty years, was recognized as a foremost authority in personal spiritual development.

As we move through the holiday week, I wanted to take a moment to thank every one of you for being an important part of the Ursula, Inc. family.   I am so grateful for all of you and your entrepreneurial spirit and fearlessness because you inspire me every single day! On that note, I decided to pull one of my most popular solo shows from the past to hopefully inspire you to bring more magic and excitement to your life and your entrepreneurial journey. And to remind you that yes, ANYTHING is still possible when a desire comes from your heart. Taking a journey in business as a CEO is a massive leap of faith. One that requires you to grow in ways that you never thought possible. Sometimes the journey is trying and we want to call it good enough even if we get “close” to our goal. I say; NO MORE! No more settling for less than what we asked for. This week on the Quantum Expansion podcast REPLAY, we are talking about faith in business, being crystal clear on exactly what we are asking for and then holding onto that until it comes into reality. There may be people that come into our lives along the way to encourage us when we feel like giving up. Other times we may be the only one out there driving in the snow when everyone told us not to. Whatever our journey may look like, we need to hold out for the rubber duckies and accept nothing less.

Lemonade and Legos … the start that inspired this week's guest Steve Vetter onto a path of entrepreneurship. ... a path he quickly learned is not something you successfully walk alone. Early on Steve realized that working 90+ hours a week was not a sustainable or scalable business model. Rather surrounding himself with the right team of people was where he would start to see quantum expansion. “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” - Seneca [Roman philosopher] It has been within this line of thinking that Steve prepared the space for growth and as a result has seen his business climb to the 7-figure level; with it well on its way to another quantum revenue expansion.

Arts journalist, critic and broadcaster Richard Watts joins Liz and Ben on a trip sideways in time with reluctant wizard Mervin (with a V) in Pratchett's 1995 short story "Once and Future", originally published in the Arthurian collection Camelot. As he stands on the beach waiting for the right hopeful king to come along, professional time traveler Mervin recounts his story of how he became stranded in a sideways version of medieval Britain. Here the stories of Arthurian myth are more or less real - though one notable figure is missing... With his knowledge of modern technology, a stash of emergency supplies and help from sharp local girl Nimue, he has a plan to fill the gaps in this other history... Pratchett explores a new angle on the Matter of Britain, mixing sci-fi and engineering into a story about stories and "a world that's not exactly memory and not exactly story". Published in between Interesting Times and Maskerade, but stewing in his head for a decade before that, it features some of Pratchett's most developed ideas about time travel, and was something he was proud and fond of. He even thought of turning his more extensive writings for it into a novel! Did you enjoy Pratchett's take on the practicalities of time travel? Would you have the skills to make it as a time traveler? Does it have the beginnings of a full-length novel? And what's the best thing you've ever found in a charity shop? ...we're not sure where that one fits in either, but you asked so we answered! (Thanks Ryn.) Join the conversation using the hashtag #Pratchat49 on social media. Guest Richard Watts is indeed a titan of the Melbourne arts community. He's best known as a journalist for ArtsHub, where he is the National Performing Arts Editor, and as the host of SmartArts, 3RRR's long-running weekly arts programme. As well as being named a living legend of the Melbourne Fringe Festival in 2019, Richard's contributions to the arts were further recognised in 2021 when he was awarded the Sidney Myer Performing Arts Awards' Facilitator's Prize and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Green Room Awards. He's also written for roleplaying games including Call of Cthulhu, Elric!, Vampire: The Masquerade, Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Wraith: The Oblivion. You can find Richard online as @richardthewatts on Twitter. As usual, you can find notes and errata for this episode on our web site. Next episode is our fiftieth - and to celebrate, we're cracking open Nanny Ogg's Cookbook! This is Pratchett's 1999 collaboration with Stephen Briggs and Tina Hannan, the latter of whom is responsible for the actual recipes inside - some of which we'll be trying out with our very special returning guest, comedian and author Cal Wilson! We're also hoping to cook up something a little extra to send your way around Hogswatch as well... For now though, send us your questions - about the book, the recipes, Nanny's etiquette advice or even just doing a Pratchett podcast for over four years.

Be Well, Be Keto: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Results!

Viki B. Zarkin is an Author and Motivational Speaker and Coach on a National level with over ten years' experience. She inspires women to change the way we have been programed to think and emphasizes the importance of starting with young women on how to believe in themselves, challenge the status quo, find their voice and listen to their heart. Ms. Zarkin earned a B.S. in Communications and Broadcast Journalism from Ithaca College in 1987. She moved back to Pennsylvania and managed the Corporate Video Production division for Cable Adnet and met her husband, Jere Zarkin. They married in 1992 and began their life together. Soon Viki began to work with Jere at the dental practice. She ran the front office so he could concentrate on the back. They worked together for almost 18 years before Viki got sick. In 1999, they had their first child Dell Isaac Zarkin, and a short 3 years later in 2002, they had their second child, a girl, Isabella Jolie Zarkin. The children, the dental practice, and family kept them very busy until Viki was diagnosed with cancer officially on January 5, 2011. Then their world turned upside down. Viki has been living with Stage 4 metastatic cancer for over 11 years. She was diagnosed in her 40's when her doctor first told her to go home and get her affairs in order. At the time, she had 2 small children at home. Viki spent the next several years fighting for her life, advocating for herself and navigating through the healthcare world and following her gut. Viki states, “After eleven years, I am told I am the only one alive like me. I want more women to stand next to me shoulder to shoulder. They too deserve to tuck their children into bed at night. So, it is up to me to fight for them, and fight I will.” Viki wants to share her story so she may be a voice for women and help in this fight. She has written a book titled, “I Am The One,” which is available here on her website, as well as on Amazon. Viki will also be teaching a zoom course later this summer which will include all her knowledge she has learned along the way to spare those the pitfalls she had to endure. “Viki says, It is my gift to people so they may just concentrate on getting well knowing that they have the confidence in all other areas and no need for worry” Viki's story is not limited to just cancer. She speaks about doctor patient relationships, nutrition, appreciating the “little things in life”, juggling motherhood and cancer, lately working with doctors advocating for listening before diagnosing in the treatment rooms and helping women follow their instinct's regarding their own health care and much more. Viki has spoken to corporation such as Capital Blue as well as college campuses like Lebanon Valley College; her reach is vast and surprisingly versatile. Viki's can-do attitude inspires people to think differently in their everyday lives and by applying her unique thought process, deals can be made in a boardroom just as easily as they can help someone through their cancer battle. Ms. Zarkin has been honored by IOATP International Association for Top Professionals for Inspirational Speaker Of The Year for 2021. Recently, she was showcased on the famous Reuters Billboard in Times Square New York City. Viki is also a proud member of Dr Shirlene Reeves Mastermind Speakers and Authors Group. Viki also was Woman of the Month for P.O.W.E.R. magazine (Professional Organization of Women of Excellence) And POWERWOE.COM in 2020 and in 2021 she Celebrated by the magazine with a LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD. Viki has also appeared on Nancy Angel Scape Podcast as well as the POWER Magazine's Podcast as well. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending time with her family.

The US government's Code of Offenses prohibits American's indigenous people from singing, dancing, or speaking their own languages as the powers that be insist on assimilation.

Judge Michael Corriero (Ret.) serves as one of three judges on CBS Media Ventures' Emmy-nominated syndicated court program HOT BENCH, created by Judge Judy Sheindlin. The show returned for its eighth season on September 13, 2021. During the 2020-21 season, HOT BENCH was once again the #2 court program in daytime television in household ratings and all major demographics. It has been # 2 across-the-board in all those categories since 2015. Prior to joining HOT BENCH, Judge Corriero served as a prosecutor in the office of Manhattan District Attorney Frank Hogan, a criminal defense attorney and a judge for 28 years in the criminal courts of New York State. For 16 years, he presided over Manhattan's Youth Part, a special court he created in the Supreme Court of New York State designed to focus attention and scarce resources on young offenders prosecuted as adults pursuant to New York State's Juvenile Offender Law. Under Judge Corriero's innovative leadership, the Youth Part became a model for mobilization and coordination of treatment and social services for children prosecuted in adult courts. He retired from the bench in 2008 to become the Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City. In 2010, he left Big Brothers Big Sisters to establish the New York Center for Juvenile Justice. The Center promoted a comprehensive model of justice for minors that treats children as children and responds to their misconduct with strategies designed to improve their chances of becoming constructive members of society. An important element of the Center's advocacy was recognized in the enactment of New York State's 2017 Raise The Age Legislation which incorporated and institutionalized the Youth Part Model. In 2012, Judge Corriero founded, along with the New York Foundling, one of New York's oldest and respected social service agencies run by the Sisters of Charity, the Families Rising Project - an alternative-to-incarceration program that works not only with a young offender but with his/her entire family. Judge Corriero is an alumnus of St. John's University School of Law and St. John's University. He was a member of the Law Review and served as an associate editor. He graduated from St. John's University College with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in social science. He is the author of a book titled, “Judging Children as Children: A Proposal for a Juvenile Justice System,” which is a blueprint for juvenile justice reform. He is regarded nationally and internationally as an expert in juvenile justice. He has traveled extensively, lecturing and advising legal institutions in numerous countries, including Israel, South Africa, Sierra Leone, Kazakhstan and Peru. Judge Corriero is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including: The New York Foundling's Lifetime Achievement Award (2015); Advocate of the Decade (2014) presented by Families on the Move of New York City, Inc.; The Eleanor Roosevelt Award (2011), presented by Citizens Committee for Children; Asian Pacific American Advocates (OCA – New York) Community Service Award (2011); Excellence in Juvenile Justice, Juvenile Detention Association of New York State (2007); Frank S. Hogan Associates Recognition Award (2007); Excellence in Children's Advocacy, presented by 100 Women Against Child Abuse (2006); The Citizens' Committee for Children's Annual Founders' Award (2004); The Howard A. Levine Award for Outstanding Work in the area of children and the law (New York State Bar Association 1999); The Livingston Hall Juvenile Justice Award (American Bar Association 1997); Outstanding Service on Behalf of Youth Award (ELEM 1996, 2007); The Conrad B. Mattox, Jr. Commonwealth Debate Winner (University of Richmond 1996); The Charles A. Rapallo Award (Colombian Lawyers Association 1994); and he participated as a Polsky Judicial Fellow at the Aspen Institute's Justice and Society Seminar (2003). Judge Corriero served at the request of the former Chief Judge of New York State, Judith Kaye, on the New York State Permanent Commission on Justice for Children. He also served on Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Committee on the Judiciary. He has previously served on the New York State Probation Commission Task Force and former New York Governor David Patterson's Task Force on Transforming Juvenile Justice. Judge Corriero also served as Chairperson of the Committee on Juvenile Justice of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. He was Co-chair of the American Bar Association's Juvenile Justice Committee. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association's Committee on Children and the Law. He served as a trustee of Big Brothers Big Sisters of New York City; a member of the Advisory Committee of Citizens' Committee for Children; a member of the Professional Committee of ELEM (Youth at Risk in Israel); and a board member of Transfiguration Grammar School Education Association.

Norma Kamali has been in the fashion industry for over 50 years and is known for her innovative designs. She designed the Sleeping Bag Coat on a camping trip in the seventies, as well as multi-style jersey dresses. In 1973 her designs were referred to as ‘vintage of the future' and are, in fact, part of her line today in washable, easy-care fabrics. Her swimwear has made a global influence for over forty years. The Parachute Collection is in several notable museums and is still evolving as part of her collection today. In 1980 Norma introduced her sweats collection that became the forerunner of what is today called Active and Athleisure Wear. In the mid-nineties she created the NK ‘try before you buy' website and was the first designer to have a store on eBay. During this time, she continued her exploration of alternative, healthy lifestyle practices; a search that began after the loss of her dear friends to AIDS. After 9/11 Norma opened the Wellness Café; a curated collection of personal care and food products that support the immune system. The Wellness Café hosted talks and events featuring experts in the wellness arena. Teas, meditation, and classes were held every day at 6 pm. In 2007 Norma collaborated with Walmart in a three-year licensee partnership where she created a collection of timeless styles all $20 and under. According to Norma, this was one of the most inspired and exciting experiences of her career. As a result of the successful collection on Walmart.com, Norma was determined to transform her company to be exclusively e-commerce. Her current distribution network is to all major e-commerce players as well as a selection of specialty stores throughout America and Europe. In 2016 Norma Kamali received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the CFDA to add to her numerous awards from the fashion industry. In 2019 NORMALIFE was launched under the concept of a healthy lifestyle. NORMALIFE is democratic and inclusive for men and women of all ages, skin color, and type. The first launch was a skin line of timeless, safe ingredients and the packaging was developed with a sustainability focus.

In our last session, we looked at how getting clear on our purpose and changing our mindset can lead to the quantum expansion of our business. Jumping off from that point in this episode we are taking a closer look at how selling with intention from a service-minded heart is where true growth starts to happen. Now you may be asking; does this mean I work for free and just give away my knowledge? The answer is; No! Sometimes helping others can be selling them your product or services. Other times it may be you referring them to someone else who can best support them in their journey. The point is coming from a place of; “how can I best serve you?” is how connections are made and relationships are built. Relationships are key in all that we do and great things happen when we start there. So how can YOU begin to build those relationships necessary for growth? The first question to ask others is, “How can I best support you?” If we skip this very important step and are not all in, the opportunities that come our way will be missed and our path to quantum expansion will never be taken.  Are you ready to shift the way you sell?  Ursula's Takeaways: Intro (00:00) Review Of Part 1 (4:48) Where Do They Go Next?

In this 102nd episode, Lisa is joined by special guest Dr. David Crenshaw for a touching and heartfelt conversation about Finding the Hidden Gifts Within Children, especially those who have been deeply mistreated and hurt. In this episode, David reminds you that children who have been wounded so often present with many protective patterns that often hide their inner treasures, talents, strengths, and deeper qualities about themselves.  And at times, these patterns are so strong in the child, that you might get easily swayed, become confused, or forget that they are protective strategies … Forgetting that under all that shutdown, back talk, aggressive behavior, or resistance, is the child's true self - their virtues, their essence, their wholeness. Listen as David shares his wisdom and some of the lessons learned from his 53 years in the field - and a key message to always look for the treasures buried within.  *David A. Crenshaw, Ph.D. is Clinical Director of the Children's Home of Poughkeepsie He is Past-President of the New York Association for Play Therapy, a Board Certified Clinical Psychologist; a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychology, and a Registered Play Therapy Supervisor.  He has received several Lifetime Achievement Awards including most recently in 2021 by the Association for Play Therapy.

The truth is, money is just a form of energy, it's a resource, a tool. Yet in our society and for sure, in Western culture, we put a lot of meaning on money that often isn't true and this creates some very interesting relationships around it. These stories in turn create limiting beliefs about selling that can get in our way when it comes to closing sales or bringing more clients in. This is where selling with intention comes into play and why before we even get into the sales itself we need to start with a decision. How much money is it we are asking for? If we miss this very important step and we are not all in, the opportunities that come our way will be missed and our path to quantum expansion will never be taken.
