    HR and Hiring in a Pandemic Update #186

    Description: One of the benefits of doing this podcast is I get to speak with a lot of people who have a front-row seat in how companies are dealing with the pandemic from a hiring and career perspective.
    I am organizing a whole series of panel discussions for the Career Pivot membership community and I will be playing the audio on this podcast.
    Next week I bring in Gary O’Neal and David Hughen to give you the perspective from the companies side.
    In future weeks, I will be speaking with a variety of resume writers, career coaches, and other career experts who are directly working with job seekers to get their perspective. I am working on a variety of formats so that my membership community gets their questions answered but also, you the listeners to this podcast gain perspective.
    Perspective on what is really happening out there is really difficult to get right now as things are moving so fast and most of us are stuck at home.

    Pivoting a Speaking Career in a Time of Pandemic #185

    Pivoting a Speaking Career in a Time of Pandemic #185

    Description: Thom has authored twelve books on the power of business relationships, sales, networking, presentation skills, and entrepreneurship, and regularly speaks to corporate, law firm, and convention audiences. He sets the tone for better engagement at industry events as the opening keynote speaker or the Master of Ceremonies. The unique Conference Catalyst Program has become a “meeting planners” favorite in how it transforms the conference attendee experience.
    As the host of the popular “Cool Things Entrepreneurs Do” podcast, Thom interviews business leaders, entrepreneurs, solopreneurs, and others who possess an extra dose of the entrepreneurial spirit. The information compiled from these compelling interviews is shared with his clients, as he challenges people to be more engaged and enthusiastic in all their actions.
    Thom earned the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation in 2014. The Certified Speaking Professional designation, established in 1980, is the speaking industry’s international measure of professional platform skill. The CSP designation is conferred by the National Speakers Association (NSA) only on those speakers who have earned it by meeting strict qualifying criteria. The letters CSP following a speaker’s name identify that speaker as a speaking professional with a proven track record for understanding and delivering value from the platform.
    In early March of 2020, Thom saw all of his business disappear.

    From Mining Engineer To Small Business Consultant #184

    From Mining Engineer To Small Business Consultant #184

    Description: Gene states it best in his LinkedIn About section:
    The life of a contractor is not an easy one.
    You’ve grown up in the construction industry and building is in your blood. This isn’t a job. This is who you are. You’re able to bring all your knowledge, experience, and passion for doing what you do best – build stuff. You build the structures that define our world today!
    As you build, though, you realize that you need money. Sometimes you’ve got lots of money in the checking account and sometimes nothing.
    I get it. I was shoveling out a feeder conveyor at my father’s gravel pit when I was 10 years old. I was helping him install kitchens and pour concrete when I was 17. I watched him struggle with cash flow his whole life.
    I went to college to learn how to build mines and I did that for 40+ years. Once you start building, you’re addicted!
    We are Eagle Managerial Bookkeeping. We’ll do your bookkeeping and help change your dreaded bookkeeping into a profit center! You’ll know where your money is and where it’s going.
    We’ll set up your transactions into categories you understand. We’ll prepare monthly reports, so you know what’s going on. Then we’ll help you identify where there are opportunities. It’s bookkeeping on steroids! It'll be fun - I promise!
    I'm an engineer with an MBA and over 40 years of experience designing, building and operating mines in the USA and Latin America (that’s my last mine in the picture above).
    My team and I will help you get control of your cash flow by using the same tools and techniques I've used my whole career. You’ll be able to sleep at night without worrying whether you can meet your payroll. You’ll be confident that when you talk to your banker or tax-preparer because you have all the information they need to help you.
