Welcome to Part 1 of The Entrepreneur's Recession Response Program.
I'm so incredibly grateful that our first guest is Justin Dry, the Founder & CEO of Vinomofo.
He's overcome some pretty incredible challenges, grown the company from $0 to $50 Million, and now manages a team of over 100 people in 3 countries. He is one of the most exceptional entrepreneurs I know.
And this conversation is truly profound. We both reflect on how we've navigated the challenges (both personal and professional) in our lives, track the similarities and parallels in our journeys, and share some practical advice for business owners in this period to weather the remarkable storm we've found ourselves in.
Navigating Challenging Times In Business, With COVID- 19
[AUDIO FROM MY LIVE DISCUSSION: SURVIVING AND THRIVING IN CHALLENGING TIMES, WITH COVID-19]
The COVID-19 Pandemic is first and foremost a health issue, posing a risk to those with pre-existing health conditions and the elderly. While the vast majority of us aren’t at risk from a health perspective, many are rightly concerned about the business implications caused by COVID-19.
Recently, I spoke with The Entourage's Members, and followed up with our wider Community, to address the challenges we're currently being faced with. This is the audio from that very conversation, that my team and I also wanted to share with you on my podcast.
The main takeaway was this: SMEs and high-growth businesses will always face challenges. Working through them is part of the game. But how we choose to respond to challenge is completely up to us.
Now more than ever, the world needs leadership. The world needs people who can stay grounded, lead from the front, and make intelligent decisions. But with all the media attention and mass hysteria surrounding COVID-19, it can be difficult to see through all of that, and to look at what’s really going on and how it’s going to affect us.
This conversation is purposefully quite comprehensive, as I’ve wanted to take the time to share some lessons I’ve personally learnt in navigating extreme challenges in my life and business, and to draw on some of the research around COVID-19 to help paint a clear path forward for you all. You'll hear that I'll address each of the main considerations as I see them: health, business, personal and societal.
If you're a business owner, or working in a business that has been affected by COVID-19, this is the message you need to hear right now.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed at this moment, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Business is challenging enough when it’s “business as usual.” Do not try to battle through this alone. We are all going through this together. Trust that there is light at the end of this tunnel.
This Is The Worst Recruitment Advice I've EVER Heard
I see and hear TOO many business owners and entrepreneurs religiously subscribing to a single piece of recruitment advice which is outdated, old-school, institutionalised, and which DOES NOT apply to the types of businesses like the ones we actually run.
In fact, if you take on this advice, I fundamentally believe that it will put your business in limbo for years - because you won’t have a team with the capability you need to drive it forward.
What advice am I talking about?
In this episode, I’ll share with you the worst piece of advice around recruitment that you could ever take on in a high-growth business, and the recruitment philosophy you should subscribe to instead.
Fear And Stress Are The WORST Sources Of Fuel And Drive For Entrepreneurs
So many entrepreneurs and leaders get stuck in a perpetual state of fear, stress, aggression and grit. We think that’s where we get our fuel and drive from. And some actively seek it out, thinking it will push them to be better.
But that is an unsustainable fuel source.
And while so many are getting addicted to that fear-based fuel, a state of beauty and joy is more conducive to creating success in business, and in life.
I discuss these two states of consciousness - from a place of suffering and inner disturbance, and from a place of joy and inner peace - with one of the most transformational thinkers of our time in this interview.
Many of you who have heard me talk about consciousness before might also know that I import my passion and wisdom from India. Specifically, I import it from a beautiful organisation called O&O Academy. One of the founders, Preethaji, shares a very powerful message in this episode: that, to create, achieve and relate, we need to actively pursue a transformed and joyful state of consciousness. We dive deep into becoming a conscious wealth creator, shifting the fuel that drives us, and shatter the myths surrounding spirituality for entrepreneurs.
It’s no coincidence that most of the successful business minds I speak to have a deep sense of purpose (deeper than making money) and commitment to optimising their own consciousness and personal performance. I cannot wait to hear what you take away from this powerful interview.
STOP Being So One-Dimensional. There Is More To Life Than Your Business.
Today’s episode of The Jack Delosa Podcast was inspired by an advisory session I recently had with a phenomenal business owner. This entrepreneur had been in business for over 15 years, but her life as a business owner had become so routine that she felt cut off from herself, and was no longer guided by a sense of purpose or meaning.
The conversation highlighted to me just how myopic and short-sighted we can become as entrepreneurs when we allow ourselves to be consumed by our businesses. The truth is: the richer you feel in yourself, the better entrepreneur and leader you will be.
Take this episode as the catalyst, and a personal challenge, to stop being one dimensional and step back into your humanity.
Refreshing & Informative
I've been listening to the Financial Mentor podcast for a few months, then decided to go to the back catalog! As a business owner, I find the material very refreshing and informative, all which help me remember the essential items in sustaining a solid business. Keep up the great work.
So good to add you back into my podcast play list. Welcome back!
Why are there no shows between March 2017 to June 2018? Other podcasts cover the same content but with stronger presenters.
This is neither new or noteworthy.
