HR has more influence than any other position in an organization. They have access to all the data and are having conversations with everyone from the CEO to the janitor on a daily basis. It becomes crucial, then, to make sure HR is using that influence in the most effective way possible: Proactively driving change to address the current labor crisis Making sure the company's workforce provides a competitive advantage Addressing the challenges of employer-sponsored healthcare head-on We speak with Dr. Wade Larson, Chief Human Resources Officer at Wagstaff, about workplace retention, behavior changes in regards to health care, and the value of HR becoming business savvy. Key takeaways from this episode: HR has no authority in the workplace BUT has total influence. Most people who don't like to change, unless it's their idea. This is where HR can add value. Your people are not coming back to work, it is time to act now before it's too late. If you don't know the rules when it comes to healthcare, you will lose.

Business Development Process: The Skills, Strategy, and Activities https://virtualcmo.expert/https://www.linkedin.com/in/edwindearborn/Business development is the process of implementing strategies and opportunities across your organization to promote growth and boost revenue.It involves pursuing opportunities to help your business grow, identifying new prospects, and converting more leads into customers. Business development is closely tied to sales — business development teams and representatives are almost always a part of the greater sales org.Business development is a process that helps your company establish and maintain relationships with prospects, learn about your buyer's personas, increase brand awareness, and seek new opportunities to promote growth.In contrast, sales teams sell your product or service to customers and work to convert leads into customers. Business development-related work simplifies the work of a salesperson or sales manager.Business Development Representative ResponsibilitiesAlthough some BDR responsibilities may change over time and as your business grows, the following list will provide you with a solid understanding of typical BDR tasks.1. Qualify leads.BDRs must qualify leads and pinpoint ideal prospects to determine who they'll sell to. Typically, leads are qualified through calls, emails, web forms, and social media.The key to qualifying leads (leads who are assigned to the BDRs as well as leads BDRs identify themselves) is to consider their needs and then determine whether or not your product or software could be a solution for them.2. Identify and communicate with prospects.By qualifying leads and searching for people who fit your buyer personas, BDRs will identify ideal prospects. They can communicate with those prospects directly to learn more about their needs and pain points.This way, BDRs can determine whether or not the prospect will really benefit from your product or service by becoming a customer. This is important because it increases the potential for improved customer loyalty and retention.Once the BDRs have identified ideal prospects, those prospects can be passed along to a sales rep on the team (or sales manager, if necessary) who can nurture them into making a deal.3. Proactively seek new business opportunities.Proactively seeking new opportunities — whether that's in terms of the product line, markets, prospects, or brand awareness — is an important part of your business's success. BDRs work to find new business opportunities through networking, researching your competition, and talking to prospects and current customers.If a new business opportunity is identified, BDRs should schedule marketing assessments and discovery meetings with the sales reps on the team so they can all assess whether or not there's potential for a deal.4. Stay up-to-date on competition and new market trends.It's important to stay up-to-date on your competition's strategies, products, and target audience as well as any new market and industry trends.This will allow you to more effectively identify ideal prospects. It also helps your business prepare for any shifts in the market that could lead to the need for a new approach to qualifying leads and attracting your target audience.

One of the best consistent sources of real estate leads is your centers of influence and past client list. On today's podcast, Tim and Julie Harris will help you to create and expand your centers of influence and past client list so that it will become a consistent incredibly profitable source of REFERRAL FEE FREE real estate leads. Remember, it is incredibly important that you understand the most powerful form of contacting someone is PROACTIVELY. Proactive communication: - Video call. - A phone call. - Face to face. Passive Communication: - SMS/ Text. - Email. - Drip campaigns. - Watch only videos. etc. Tip: Most people will deprioritize passive digital communication in favor of face-to-face or direct calls. Think about your own behavior, you chat with someone at the gym you remember that conversation....our brains are hard-wired towards person to person, face to face, voice to voice communication. Tip: You can reinforce proactive communication with passive but you can't replace proactive communication with passive. Step #1: Be of service Inflation, interest rates, war, and fear-filled media seem to be everywhere. Most people don't know how to emotionally filter fear from their mindsets. Your mission is to contact your centers of influence and past with energy and enthusiasm and give them great news about the value of their home. Hint: Using this script will result in a very high level of appreciation directed towards you. Your call to them sharing with them the value of their home could be the best news they have heard in a long time. Mentally and emotionally prepare yourself for their appreciation and not rejection. "Hi, this is Tim Harris with EXP Realty....so listen, I am getting a ton of folks expressing concerns, and fears about the economy and housing market. I am calling all of my friends, family...people I know, love and care for....to give them the real bottom-line update of their home's value so they don't have to worry....I have this month's update for you now!.....oh, and the best part is that it's all great news!" Next, give them an update. You can simply give them the average year-over-year appreciation rate. "Mr. Owner, in the last 12 months homes in your market have increased by 20%! WOW, congratulations. Would you like me to do a personalized drill down on the value of your home in this market, I can email it to you later today..." Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

When I think in terms of building a client base proactively, to me, that means deciding in advance, what type of clients do I want? What types of clients do I not want? And then really going about putting together the processes and strategies that are necessary to attract exactly that type of customer. David: Hi, and welcome to the podcast. Today, co-host Jay McFarland and I will be discussing the topic of growing your client base proactively. Welcome, Jay. Jay: Hey, thank you for having me on. I'm super excited about today's topic. David: It's great to have you here. Jay: Yeah. And I know this is a big question for businesses. I've heard the phrase. "If you're not growing, you're dying" So growth is a constant thing that you have to be thinking about. How do you do that proactively? Overcoming the Day to Day David: It's a great question because so often we get caught up in the day-to-day of what's going on. Particularly in the early stages of a business, when you don't have as much business as you need, it can be really scary. What a lot of people tend to do is they just sort of default to whatever it is that they think is going to bring in business. And they lose sight of the fact that if they aren't proactive about it, you can really fall into bad patterns that can create problems and perpetuate a cycle where you're not generating the revenue that you need to grow and scale. Jay: Yeah, this is such important information because I think most people don't start a business because they know how to grow a business. They start a business because I have a great recipe and I'm going to put it in a food truck. Or I'm an attorney even, and I've learned the law or a dentist or a doctor. Those people are not trained or taught how to grow their business. They're taught how to do their craft. So this is outside of anything they've been taught. David: It's really funny because there was an electrician here earlier today at our house. He was taking care of some things. And we were having exactly this conversation. Because he used to work for another electrical firm. He decided to start his own business. And we started talking about "what they don't teach you in electrical school" essentially. Right? There's More to Growing Your Client Base Proactively I know how to do electrical work, but do I know how to find customers? Do I know how to find the right customers? Do I know how to handle the billing and do collections and hire and fire and do all the other things that become necessary when you have a business. It's a whole different set of skills. But you're right. And from the standpoint of our topic today, in terms of growing proactively, a lot of business owners really don't know how to go about that. They don't know how to do it, which is the reason we're having this conversation today. Jay: Yeah. It can be so daunting. So where do you start? I mean, you know, so many ideas, you got social media, you've got all of these different tools available to you. Where do you begin? David: Well, I think for a lot of people, if you want to take a strategic approach, you want to think in terms of the types of clients, you actually want to have. The types of customers that you enjoy interacting with. By and large, these are going to be people who are pleasant to deal with. They're people who have money and aren't afraid to spend it. They're people who appreciate the value you bring to the table. And a lot of times we don't even think of that. Taking Just Anybody Again, particularly in the early stages, if somebody is willing to pay us for what we do, we're like, "okay, great, I'll take it!" And I think that can really be a mistake. Because it can lead us to establishing the type of client base that we might not want to interact with on an ongoing basis. So when I think in terms of building a client base proactively to me, that means deciding in advance, what types of clients do I want?

Studies have identified anger as being a secondary emotion. A secondary emotion is an emotion-fueled by other emotions. For example, if you become hurt in some way, you might express ANGER instead of emotional and physical pain – it might be easier to express anger than express hurt. When our kids become angry, we can often stay curious about that anger and figure out some other big feelings are in play. For example, when something might feel unfair, a child may feel jealous, resentful, annoyed and ANGER will surface. How do we respond: 1. Regulate Yourself 2. Go to the Feelings 3. Set a Boundary 4. Teach ways to express anger PROACTIVELY
Shifting from living your life reactively to aiming to live your life proactively could only be intentional. We live in a world where the majority of us do things reactively.

3 weeks ago, Shackleton's ship the Endurance was located 9800 feet beneath the Ocean's surface near the antarctic. One ship: 144' long Crew of Shackleton and 27 men One aim: the first to cross the Antarctic continent and become the first to cross it Foundational reality: Your seas are changing, the weather patterns are becoming more unpredictable. Today the swells are 1-2 feet, and in an hour they are 5-8. Chaos is the standard and unpredictability is the new predictable. Your choice: either take your existing boat out into the unpredictability of the seas… OR learn from what the seas are telling you, and build a different boat. Would Shackleton, knowing the tumult of the Antarctic, have taken the same boat? Would he have not gone? NO! He would have built a better boat and designed a better map. Let's look at the route of the Endurance Trapped in Jan 1915 Crushed in Oct 1915, Sunk Nov 1915 Departed isolated spot April 1916 (15 months in one isolated spot!!!!) Final crew rescued Aug 30, 1016 (18 months after being trapped) 28 total men, in barren ice, with torrential weather, full days of either all light/ all dark. Every single person made it out alive. But in order to survive, Shackleton displayed the RPMs of Navigating hard things… Repetition: he did the same thing over and over Repetition is the mother of all learning “Vision without IMPLEMENTATION is hallucination!” Methodical, repetitions beats hail mary's and home runs EVERY DAY I get made fun of for being a 1 trick pony, “hey, we want new content”. You are not in need of NEW content, you are in need of IMPLEMENTING the content that works. Trying to swing for a home run meant certain death…base hits equal life. 18 months Shackleton's men were forced to endure a harsh climate, unrelenting sun/darkness, starvation, isolation, and probably the worst reality of all…no day to day purpose. Daily Schedule… a routine: Morning: 6:30 a.m. Light the stove. 7:00 a.m. Emerge from tents. 7:45 a.m. “Lash up and stow!” Breakfast. Rolled-up sleeping bags are used as chairs, while the tent Peggies bring round each tent's ration of hoosh. Then chores, cooking, hunting, making improvements to the boats, exercising the dogs, returning back to the Endurance for further salvage. mostly hunting. Dogs fed at 5 p.m. Our dinner at 5:30 p.m. Seal hoosh, a bannock, and watered cocoa. Evening: Read aloud, cards, or singalong. Lights out at 8:30 p.m. Late conversation, if any, must be hushed; voices carry in the cold, dry air. By 10 p.m. all quiet except the first night watchman; we each have our watch hour assignment. Predictability Predictability is PROACTIVELY building the right stage of Culture embedded within the existing repetition Creating predictability is found in an old sailors creed, “He who is enslaved to the compass has the freedom of the seas.” Predictability means agreeing on the true north of Process, the true north of Vision/mission/values, and the true north of People…and then working the process like a good navigator works the instruments. My BIG win…we shared our 12 week plans with each other Tuesday and look at all that is getting done…(show pics of 12 week plans) Predictable schedule, goal, demeanor Wrong Time Wrong Question Healthy! What is micro-management…it's just UNPREDICTABLE LEADERSHIP? Seesaw of Predictability MEANING (INTENTIONALITY) Asking specific questions at specific times to specific people Pits and Peaks Open ended questions…”tell me more about that” Card Game at the end Family mission: to be a light through adventure, wisdom, and time around the table… Business mission: to liberate owners from chaos and make time for what matters Check Ins Team Meetings Culture Calendar MPR Culture Calendar: one simple way to be intentional New employees are less concerned about the technical expertise from day one, and more concerned about having access to what they need to succeed and feel connected to the culture.

Subtitle: As we all are aware, the environment of today's economy is constantly changing and inflation is a real challenge. Unfortunately, for a business the solution is not as simple as “raise prices”. Because of this, today, we break down how we combat inflation in a special investing episode. DISCLAIMER, we're not investment advisors, these simply are our opinions. We talk about investing in crypto and real estate, leveraged trades, cutting costs, and more on this week's episode. Summary: On today's special episode, we dive deep into the world of cryptocurrencies and investing to break down our strategies for hedging inflation. Please keep in mind, we are not financial, business, or investment advisors, so do your own research and talk to your advisors. One of the first things we do to shield ourselves from inflation is to cut unneeded costs within our businesses. It's important to analyze the efficiency and practicality of every tool in order to eliminate the unnecessary ones. As time goes on, chances are, you'll have to raise your prices to keep up with inflation. Proactively changing prices can help you hedge against inflation. Investing is also key. Whether it's real estate, gold, stocks, or cryptocurrencies, any wise investment can help you avoid inflation. While cryptocurrencies can yield big rewards, they do so at a high risk. Top 3 Curtain Pulls in this episode: Stick to your investment plan no matter your feelings. Once you decide where you want to invest and have committed, it's important to not allow your feelings to dictate any changes to your investment. It's good to know “hey, I should get out of this investment”, but stick to your plan and don't let a bad day impact your investments. “emotions are tied to money. And you have to become, when you're investing, you really have to have a plan. Use data and your experience to make decisions. And you have to follow those decisions.” Choose which crypto you invest in wisely. There are lots of coins and cryptocurrencies out there, and it can be challenging to decide what you want to invest in. While Bitcoin is unique and can be compared to gold, most coins are like technologies. Be thoughtful in how you invest in crypto, if you decide to, and make sure your general investments are diversified. “look at how you can keep a safe and balanced portfolio.” Wait to invest until everything's wrecked. Warren Buffet's saying, when other people are fearful, that's when you buy, is one of the most important concepts of investing. While it may initially seem like a good idea to buy something that the media's talking about, it's best to wait until the market's at its lowest to purchase any kind of stock or make any investment. . “do not buy when the media is talking about a stock or a company… you will have to buy when everything's wrecked.” For more tips, discussion, and behind the scenes: Follow us on Instagram @AgencyPodcast Join our closed Facebook community for agency leaders About The Guys: Bob Hutchins: Founder of BuzzPlant, a digital agency that he ran from from 2000 -2017.

[2:02] Ken tells the listeners that Bob's TED talk is called, “from ambiguous loss to tragic optimism, journeying together through collective grief.” [2:50] Brad says that in the next episode, they'll have Bob unpack his TED talk and dive deep on it. [3:11] Ken informs the listeners that, “this is not investment advice. This is not business advice. This is our opinion.” [4:45] Ken asks Brad, “how do you make the most of the money that you have? And what are you doing these days?” [7:01] Brad talks about how his childhood influenced his knowledge of investing and how “a lot of my investment knowledge comes from just trying things and learning.” [12:01] Ken asks Brad to walk through a few of the asset classes. [12:10] Ken also asks Brad how he thinks the environment today impacts crypto and equities. “with all that's going on, in the, in the environment, in the general, macro, economic, global environment, so you've got the Russian invasion in Ukraine? how is that impacting what we're doing?” [12:55] Brad talks about what he's doing in his business, and personally, to hedge inflation. “I'm looking at anything that we can cut out of our budget personally and for my big business, anything that's extra” [15:37] Ken discusses what he and his team are doing to shield themselves from inflation. “we're increasing prices… But also cutting things out.” [20:09] Brad breaks down one of the most important investing principles. “when other people are fearful, that's when you buy… do not buy when the media is talking about a stock or a company… you will have to buy when everything's wrecked.” [25:23] Brad discusses the importance of understanding your investing strategy and not making emotional decisions when investing. “emotions are tied to money. And you have to become, when you're investing, you really have to have a plan. Use data and your experience to make decisions. And you have to follow those decisions.” [26:33] Ken asks Brad if, “There are any other coins that you're invested in that you think are stable and that are smart investments?” [29:23] Ken explains that most coins are technologies. [29:33] Brad explains the difference between most cryptocurrencies and Bitcoin. [30:28] Brad breaks down his crypto investment makeup and explains why he invested the way he did. [36:20] Brad dives deep on crypto and leveraging trades. [39:07] Ken asks Brad, “what about physical assets, specifically, real estate?” [41:51] Ken discusses his belief that agencies should be shooting to make 30% profit and how that could help combat inflation. [43:40] Brad talks about the importance of having a mindset that understands, “you live in a world where prices are always going to be much higher.” [47:24] Brad discusses his most important takeaways regarding inflation and investing. [50:34] Ken closes this week's episode. “Hopefully, this is helpful. Again, it's not investment advice. And next time, we'll have Bob back here and we'll actually get into his TED talk.”

Proactively Take Control of your Future ExitOn today's episode of #PoisedforExit, we interviewed my long-time colleague, Dyanne Ross Hanson on this episode of Poised for Exit. Dyanne is a CEPA like me and specializes in working with families looking to transfer to other family members or employees. She has a process that is worth learning!Dyanne's mission as an adviser is to monetize an owner's investment in the business. She believes that owners looking to sell internally to family or employees should begin 5-7 years out. Most owners wait too long to begin the process and thereby reduce the number of options they have for a successful transition. When internal successors are lacking capital to make the purchase of the business, Dyanne works with them to construct ways for them to buy in overtime. She uses investment products that allow the buyers to earn equity positions over time, which at a certain point makes them more bankable for financing.Listen to this episode hereFind Julie hereLearn more about Dyanne Ross HansonThank you to this month's sponsor!

Proactively attracting the best talent is becoming increasingly mission-critical for organizations. Employees and candidates know exactly what they want from work, and in a sea of high attrition rates and low engagement, it's the companies who are leveraging a strong brand that are coming out on top in this war for talent. And recruitment marketing could be the key to this success. Joining us on the show to talk about this is Lori Sylvia, the Founder of Rally Recruitment Marketing, an online community of over 30,000 professionals learning best practices in recruitment marketing. She's here to talk about the importance of analytics and measurement when it comes to this discipline, how recruitment marketing enables TA to do their best work and why the adoption of marketing tools and tactics can future-proof and elevate your approach to recruitment.

Welcome back to the Daily Mastermind Today I want to talk to you about a concept I came across the other day from Dan Sullivan and Benjamin Hardy called The Gap and The Gain...a great book on Amazon Books. Here is the problem most High Achievers face... ...they constantly improve and achieve, but they are never satisfied. Have you ever set a goal...worked hard for it...reached your goal, and yet wasn't totally satisfied. In fact, you just ended up setting an even higher goal..or another higher bench mark. I'll add link in the show notes. Summary Ideas from Book We all have an “ideal,” a moving target that is always out of reach. When we measure ourselves against that ideal, we're in the GAP. When we measure ourselves against our previous selves, we're in the GAIN. Being in the GAIN has enormous psychological effects, including bolstering motivation, confidence, and future success. Always measure backward. PART 1 The GAP is an attachment to something outside yourself. Its never being satisfied until you get what you WANT... ...but its never enough...leaving you always WANTING more. The GAIN is based on knowing what you want, but knowing you don't need it to be happy. The GAIN means enjoying the journey. Create Ability to Be FREE from WANTS. Q What are your goals right now...are they all externally focused...why? Q What are some internal GAINS you can add to the list of milestones? PART 2 Wanting external things means you are never truly in "control" because the goal posts are always moving. By creating an INTERNAL focus, you are taking back control of your life and perspective. Internal focus and "success" means you get to set the parameters and live more present. Q How often do you compare yourself to others? Q How much time do you spend on social media? focus external PART 3 How to get out of the GAP and get into the GAIN...practice the Stoic Philosophy... ...imagine losing something allows you to put more value on it. Stoic imagine losing everything Stoic reflect on their mortality Getting into the GAIN has a compound effect on your life. PART 4 Always measure backwards. Journaling will allow you to do this effectively. KPIS should measure both forward but value backward results and progress Measuring Progress is key to enjoying the moment. You are not the same person you were years back. Recognize the progress and it will motivate you. It will also build your confidence, self esteem and resilience rather than future taking it away. Q What have you accomplished lately? Q What are 3 wins you can acknowledge and celebrate? Q Find ways to celebrate short term (in the present). PART 5 Measure your wins daily. Best time is right before bed. If you are scrolling your phone or social, you are training your mind to be REACTIVE. If you are recognizing wins, you are training your mind to Proactively focus on success. Journal right before bed 3 wins daily. Pearson's Law states: When performance is measured, performance improves. When performance is measured and reported, the rate of improvement accelerates. Journaling and accountability partners will help accelerate your success. PART 6 Make every lesson and every experience a GAIN. Being in the GAIN is not about always being positive. Being in the GAIN is about finding ways to take every situation and make it SERVE YOU... Victim mindset vs Creator Mindset. Are you taking responsibility and EMPOWERING Yourself... ...or are you playing the Victim and DisEmpowering Yourself? I hope this topic has given you some fresh perspective and also given you a few strategies to work on in your own life. I truly believe that learning to measure backwards while motivating yourself to go forward is a very productive strategy for you to start implementing right away.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is an absolute disaster. It isn't just that she has to cover up for the debacle of a presidency the Biden-Harris regime has established in their short year in the White House. It's that Psaki herself is not a very talented person. That may be unfair as I don't know what her actual talents are, but fielding questions from reporters isn't one of them. Softball questions are fine, but any actual pushback gets the incompetent treatment from Psaki.

Richa Sachdev, Head of ML Engineering at Vanguard, discusses her approach to ensuring ML models are developed ethically and used responsibly As organizations get to grips with the practical issues around ensuring AI and ML is used ethically, a lot of effort needs to go into helping business stakeholders understand these technologies. In this week's Business of Data podcast, Richa Sachdev, Head of Machine Learning Engineering at investment firm Vanguard, shares how she's ensuring her team puts ethical data at the center of its strategy. Principles for Ethical Model Development Sachdev's team's primary role includes developing recommendation systems for funds and using data to track customer interactions to support Vanguard's sales and marketing functions. For Sachdev, doing this ethically means focusing on issues such as privacy, explainability and bias. “As engineers, we can be proactive about governance by redacting unnecessary information when we're creating a model,” she says. “Of course, we don't want to redact everything because the model will lose value. But I don't need a person's Social Security number, their religion or their criminal history.” “We have to ensure that we are not introducing any known or unknown bias in our model baseline,” she continues. “There are a lot of statistical tests that are available in our toolkit for training or testing models. So when we get the outputs, we can compare results to see if something applies to a general population or just a small sample to avoid problems downstream.” Everyone is Responsible for Using AI Ethically Sachdev is proud of the strides her organization is making towards data analytics maturity. While there are still departments that don't understand analytics function, many are making the most of it. Leveraging analytics cannot be a standalone function, she says. But at the same time, everyone who uses AI within a business has a role to play with respect to ensuring those systems are applied ethically. “There isn't a single party that can ensure that everything goes well with ethical data,” Sachdev notes. “Achieving this should be part of the CDAO's strategy and part of leaders' key responsibilities. Everything should be connected by a common thread.” She concludes: “I was in an internal conference, hosted by my department and the data and governance department, where we discussed what ethical AI really is. A lot of deliberate work needs to go into bringing everyone to the party.” Key Takeaways Consider the ethical implications of each use case. Behaving ethically will often require data scientists to redact unnecessary personally identifiable information (PII) or build explainability into models Proactively combat ML bias. Enterprises should develop processes to search for and remediate the many kinds of bias that can lead to unfair model outputs Everyone is responsible for using AI responsibly. Stakeholders much be educated on how to get the most out of AI systems and how to do so ethically

In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge talks with CEO and managing director of Business Legal Lifecycle and author and business coach, https://jeremystreten.com/ (Jeremy Streten). Jeremy and Josh discuss common starting mistakes that new entrepreneurs make, and both agree that you have to have the right growth plan and foundation. Don't tell yourself you'll “fix that later” – start strong and on the right foot. Business adulting is an important part of starting any business. Jeremy admits that law is not something that most business owners find exciting, but it's vital that you seek proactive legal advice. Jeremy is passionate about helping business owners see where their proactive legal issues are so they can put the right things in place to protect themselves and their businesses. Josh and Jeremy also talk about Jeremy's book, the Business Legal Lifecycle. The book lays out 13 phases, with the first three phases being the business conception phases. This is all about how you develop the proper foundation to launch your business off of. Jeremy also talks about the importance of setting your goals along with the building of your business foundation so that it grows in the direction you want it to. Risk reversal marketing can be successful, but make sure you proactively line up expectations and clarity on the front end. This is a great example of being legally proactive with your business. Jeremy shares stories of how companies with massive potential failed and went bankrupt simply because they never consulted a lawyer. Putting legal safeguards in place for your business should be one of the first things you prioritize while building your business. Josh and Jeremy also explore how to structure liability among your team, employees, and clients. Always make sure to protect yourself legally in terms of your specific agreements and terms.. Jeremy explains that the first step in this process is to have the adult conversation and better communication on the front end with your clients. Honesty and transparency up front, especially relating to risks and liability, are an important part of this communication. Josh offers some ideas to facilitate this communication, including filming a video that explains your agreements to your clients rather than just handing them a thick document. You don't want your agreement or the time it takes to go through it to be a roadblock. This will also ensure your client always understands the details of your agreements.

Past year calendar reviewThis is an exercise I learned from Tim Ferriss, and it's great. If you do nothing else, I'd do this.Simply put, you go through the entire past year on your calendar, and make a list of the people, activities, and commitments that triggered peak positive/negative emotions on a weekly or monthly basis. Then, find the 20% of each list that produced the most reliable or powerful peaks. Proactively schedule the positive ones now, and avoid/reduce the negative ones. Areas of life reviewLook holistically across your life. Don't solely focus on your career. I tend to go through the following eight areas of life:health & wellbeingcreative expression & fun (hobby, travel, adventure, etc)wealth / financesrelationships (family, friends, romance, other)personal systems (habits, routines, processes) & personal developmentcareer/mission/workemotions / spiritualmindFor each area, I ask the following five questions (I don't necessarily answer all of them every time though):what was accomplished?what wasn't accomplished?what worked?what didn't work?what was missing?Lastly, I like to have a freeform section that is just "is there anything else I need to say about this to feel complete?" I'm often surprised at what comes out here, so don't underestimate this question.
Although food recalls protect the public from products that may cause illness or injuries, they can be a nightmare for your client. This podcast episode, a Snap Talk from the 2021 IRMI Emmett J Vaughan Agribusiness Conference, is presented by Bernie Steves, managing director and practice leader for Aon's Crisis Management Team. In this 18-minute Snap Talk, Mr. Steves discusses the many types and causes of product recalls, including undeclared allergens, which account for almost half of all product recalls every year. Product recalls are more prevalent than many of us think. Be sure to check out the other agribusiness resources that IRMI has to offer!

Paying Capital Gains Tax (CGT) isn't necessarily a bad thing because it means that you have sold an asset and made a profit, which is better than a loss, of course. That said, I'm certain that most people would prefer to pay less tax, not more. Therefore, it's important to understand the ins and outs of CGT.Capital Gain Tax basicsThe amount of tax you must pay on any capital gain is calculated using the below formula (for any asset purchase after 20 September 1985).See here. (A) Net sale proceeds – this includes the amount that you received less any direct selling costs such as advertising expenses, agent fees, legal fees, brokerage and so forth. If you have gifted the asset or sold it to a related party for less than market value, then your net sale proceeds are deemed to be equal to its market value.(B) Cost Base – this includes the total cost of the asset, which is what you originally paid for it plus any related costs such as brokerage for shares, stamp duty and buyers' agent fees for property, legal fees, professional fees and so forth. You may be able to include any holding costs and capital improvements in your cost base if you haven't already claimed a tax deduction for them. The cost base will be reduced by any depreciation or amortisation claimed on the asset during the ownership period.(C) 50% discount – if you have owned the asset for more than 12 months and you are a resident for Australian Tax purposes, you are entitled to reduce the net capital gain by 50%.(D) Marginal Tax Rate – The final step is to multiple the discounted capital gain by your marginal tax rate. For example, if you earn between $120,000 and $180,000, your marginal tax rate is 39% (including 2% Medicare levy).An exampleLeo purchased a property in 2002 for $550,000. The total costs associated with the purchase was $33,000. Leo sold the property in December 2021 and received $2.1 million net of all selling costs. As such, the gross gain is $1,517,000. The discounted gain is $758,500. And as Leo earns over $180,000 p.a. from his job, the whole gain will be taxed at the highest marginal rate of 47%. Consequently, Leo will have to pay $356,495 of tax when he lodges his tax return after 1 July 2022.What if you make a capital loss?A capital loss occurs when your net sale proceeds are less than your cost base. Capital losses can be used to offset capital gains. However, capital losses cannot be used to offset other income (such as employment income). Instead, you may carry a capital loss forward to use it in future years if/when you make a capital gain.Main residence exemptionYou are permitted to claim a CGT exemption on your home if (1) you and/or your spouse live in it, (2) you have not used it to generate an income e.g. rented it out and (3) the land is 2 hectares (2,000 sqm) or less.Your spouse and you can only nominate one main residence at any one time. Therefore, if you have two homes (e.g. a city residence and a beach-side property), only one of those properties can be deemed as your main residence.Various rules apply for different situations such as your main residence being on multiple titles e.g. adjoining vacant land, you have multiple dwellings on the same title, or you subdivided your main residence. In these circumstances, it is very important to obtain professional advice from a holistic accountant.Converting a main residence into and investment propertyIf you rent out a former main residence, you may only receive a partial main residence exemption:1. If you occupied the property immediately after you purchased it, your cost base will be deemed to be equal to the market value on the day that it first became available for rent; or2. If you initially rented the property to a tenant, and occupied it thereafter, your main residence exemption will be pro-rata by the number of days that you occupied the property. For example, if you purchased a property and rented it out for 2 years, then occupied it for 5 years and then rented it out again for 3 years before selling it, then 50% of the gross gain can be disregarded under the main residence exemption (as you occupied the property for 5 out of the total 10 years you owned it).If you rent out a former home and don't claim another property as a main residence, you can continue to claim the main residence exemption for up to 6 years. This is called the-6-year-rule which is explained here. If you re-occupy the property prior to the end of the 6-year period, it is possible to reset this exemption for another 6 years. If you do no re-occupy or sell the property before the 6 years has expired, you will lose this exemption.A company is not entitled to the 50% discountA company is not entitled to use the 50% discount. As such, a company is taxed on the gross capital gain (i.e. items A minus B above).If a company is eligible to be treated as a base rate entity, its tax rate will be 25% (for financial year 2021/22 and beyond). The maximum rate of tax payable by an individual is 23.5% (being the highest marginal rate less the 50% discount), so this company rate of 25% is only marginally higher.However, if the company doesn't qualify as a base rate entity, its tax rate will be 30%, which is prohibitively higher than an individual's rate. If you are going to use a company to invest, care must be taken to ensure your business income structure allows you to benefit from the lower company tax rate.Discretionary family trustIf a family (discretionary) trust crystalises a capital gain, it can distribute that gain to variously individuals and/or entities. Because trust distributions retain their tax nature and attributes, the capital gain will be taxed according to the beneficiary's tax position. For example, if it is distributed to individuals, they will be entitled to the 50% discount, are able to offset capital losses and so forth. If it is distributed to a company, it will not benefit from the 50% discount. Essentially, the capital gain flows through to the beneficiaries.SuperannuationSuper funds are concessionally taxed. In accumulation phase (i.e. pre-retirement) a super fund is taxed at a flat rate of 15%. A super fund can apply a CGT discount of one-third if it has held an asset for more than 12 months. As such, the effective rate of tax on capital gains is only 10%.In retirement (pension phase), the rate of tax is nil on all income and capital gains.Inherited assetsWhen you inherit assets, you inherit their original cost base and nature of the asset. This means if you subsequently sell the asset, you will be taxed on the full gain i.e. based on the predecessor's cost base. In our experience, when inheriting assets that have been held for many decades, tax records can be difficult to obtain which can be challenging.If you are selling the predecessor's former home, you may be able to utilise the main residence exemption.If the predecessor purchased the asset before 20 September 1985 (i.e. pre-CGT), then your cost base is deemed to be the market value as at the date of death.Minimising Capital Gains TaxOf course, you want to retain as much of any capital gain as possible, which means minimising your CGT liability. There are various ways you can do that, including:1. Crystalising the CGT event in the financial year that is most economical e.g. in retirement.2. Selling assets in the right order e.g. sell assets that are expected to crystalise a capital loss first.3. Gradually selling assets over many years – which is easier to do with shares.4. Proactively determine/plan the best use of your main residence emption.5. Structure asset ownership taking CGT liabilities into account e.g. trust or super fund. This is easier to do if you have a well-considering long-term strategy.Warning: don't rely solely on this summaryWhen it comes to tax, there's almost always special rules, treatments and exemptions that depend on your circumstances (e.g. the Small Business Capital Gains Concessions). Whilst the above summary is accurate, it is important that you seek personalised tax advice to ensure these rules can be applied in your circumstances.
Proactively responding to off campus issues. Three guests joined the podcast to talk about how the City of Manchester, University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University, and Greater Manchester Police partnered to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Poppy Humphrey is the Off Campus Student Affairs Officer at the University of Manchester. Cooper Healey is the Manager at Manchester Student Homes. Richard Timson is the South District Commander for the Greater Manchester Police. They shared how a student strategy partnership originally formed to deal with community concerns around students living off campus was used to share information and employ strategies to deal with the pandemic. This is part of a series with the International Town Gown Association looking at how college and university communities have worked together to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Host: Kirsten Wyatt
Ceaseless flux. Those are words Ludwig von Mises used to describe the perpetual change in business conditions that entrepreneurs experience. The consequent need, he told us, is for a process of constant adjustment. The current word for that process is adaptation. Economics For Business talks to Luca Dellanna, a leading business expert who advises companies of all sizes on managing the challenge of continuous adaptation. Key Takeaways and Actionable Insights Adaptation is a necessary capacity of all businesses. Adaptation is a necessity. The marketplace changes, customers change, technology changes. Change is the norm. Firms that don't adapt will suffer and potentially die, so adaptation must become the norm for business. In complex systems theory, adaptation is the selection of strategies or actions that enhance survival or any other measure of success (or fitness, as its sometimes called) amidst swirling change. In business, adaptation means choosing your degree and pace of change. Change will be externally imposed if it is not internally embraced. Businesses can influence the level of change impact. They can critically examine their mental models, and assess their products, processes, beliefs, and people, to evaluate their fitness for adapting to market change. To avoid change being imposed from outside the firm — to avoid negative natural selection, in the evolutionary metaphor – all layers of the firm must embrace change, and proactively adapt. Eliminate unfit products and processes, pursue the development of new ones that are better adapted, and upgrade people resources through thoughtful hiring and active learning. Adaptation is different than responsiveness — it's embracing harm. We talk a lot about a business's responsiveness to customer wants and preferences, especially when those preferences are fluid and incompletely articulated and require interpretation. Responsiveness is critical — but it's different from adaptation. It's response to an external signal. Adaptiveness is embracing change inside the firm. Luca Dellanna has a striking way of communicating this: he advises his clients to deliberately expose themselves to what he calls “harm” — new problems never before encountered. The exposure must not be to a problem that could overwhelm the firm, but one that can be addressed at a subsidiary level or component level or via adjustment in a shared mental model. Luca calls this “small harm” — specific problems (e.g., the price of a product or service compared to the customer's willingness to pay). Proactively probe the problem, e.g., in a high pricing test, generate feedback and actively use the learning to adapt. Another word for “small harm” is stressors: situations that put stress on the firm. Set up systems to seek out these stressors so that adaptation is deliberate, and can be enculturated, rather than wait for a crisis that requires an emergency response. Lack of discomfort is a problem to avoid. Identify the leading indicators that describe the conditions that will change the future. Lagging indicators — such as revenue — are metrics that describe the past. There are leading indicators available such as number of customer contacts (describing what the pipeline might look like in the future), and satisfaction scores (describing future repeat sales). Luca recommends pairing one lagging indicator with one leading indicator to develop a metrics system. This is not the same as popular consultant-proposed metrics systems such as OKR (Objectives and Key Results). Objectives are not leading indicators. The best leading indicators are behaviors, because these can be easily adjusted if observed to be in need of change. Falling behind on objectives does not yield an actionable response if not linked to a causal factor. Inadequate behaviors (e.g., conducting a sales call without following the proven process) can be addressed, especially if they are clearly linked to positive outcomes. This is the same principle as Amazon's focus on what they call controllable inputs, and Amazon knows a lot about driving business growth. There are several strategies to pursue adaptation. Redundancy (having more than needed): A focus on efficiency and “no waste” can be detrimental to adaptation if it leaves no resources for experimentation and exploration. Employees need time to work on new things, not just on current tasks and issues. Bottom-up initiatives: Central command and control can't run everything, anticipate every harm, or plan every experiment. Ensure entrepreneurial empowerment of front-line employees and functions so that they can initiate learning. Avoid game-over: In experimenting, calibrate the risk to ensure that a negative result is not overwhelming, and, in regular operations, be aware of any possibility of a major crisis — a Black Swan event — and be sure that it will not destroy the firm or deliver a setback from which it will be hard to recover. Never stop exploring, in a culture of anti-fragility. Nassim Nicholas Taleb famously coined the term “anti-fragile”. The company that has the most well-developed capacity to learn from problems and harm is the most anti-fragile. The culture of anti-fragility is always to surface problems when they are encountered and address them at the source. Luca stresses that culture is built when everyone in the company can see a consistent set of actions in which the trade-offs of addressing problems are consistent with the stated vision. For example, a culture of safe operations will be reinforced when safety precautions are taken even when the cost, in time or money or both, is high. The leading indicator is that every individual and every operation and sub-operation is following safe practices, and that the company readily commits resources when a new safety procedure or installation is proven to be effective. If the trade-off is made that the new procedure is effective but too expensive to install, the culture will be punctured because the company has acted contrary to its declared vision.

The best CEO's are obsessed with building a holistic vision of their company. While many can alleviate pain points by hiring the right people and empowering them, there is no substitute for understanding every aspect of your business. When something goes wrong and you are forced to learn something from a mistake, that is valuable, but it is also reactive. If you put in the energy to identify your weaknesses and learn those parts of the business proactively, you have a better chance of avoiding those missteps to begin with and accelerating your path toward success. Rob speaks with a couple of impressive entrepreneurs on this episode: Jacob McLaughlin is a young real estate broker with an idea to revolutionize qualified leads, but Rob, who has a sister in the business and has bought and sold many properties, spins him toward a higher end market. Parker Alexander founded a hat company called Tahoe Heartbeat in his home of Lake Tahoe, and has big plans for expansion, but Rob tells him why he already has the special sauce he needs for wild success. https://tahoeheartbeat.com Learn more about this episode.
