    The Business of Skating and Connection with Shelley Hedley, Brett Vowles, and Jade Green

    The Business of Skating and Connection with Shelley Hedley, Brett Vowles, and Jade Green

    In 2008, Brett Vowles and Shelley Hedley became business partners with franchised retail stores in Sydney. They were shopping for roller skates and noticed a minimal number of stores that carried roller derby equipment, roller skates and inline skates in general. Always searching for new opportunities, the couple easily saw a hole in the market for roller skates. They took the leap, moved away from a franchise model and started their own brand that became a huge hit in the market. 
    Key Points:
    [00:02:49] Lean in and discover Shelley and Brett's origin story.
    [00:10:39] Why understanding your customer and how you can increase the lifetime value is the secret sauce to success.
    [00:15:53]  How do you start? Find that niche market and communicate with them.
    [00:22:08] Understand the benefits and pitfalls of going with a franchise versus your own brand. Buying a franchise is easier, yet there are pros and cons on those fronts.
    [00:39:50] When COVID hit, they focused on the best performing shops.
    [00:57:38] How to segment your time.
    Shelley Hedley is a Canadian born entrepreneur and co-founder of Skate Connection and Coast Skateboards. With 12 years of experience owning retail spaces with a background in design and marketing, she moved to Australia after graduating with a Bachelor's of Human Ecology focusing on textile science and later completed a post-graduate in design.
    Brett Vowles is a New Zealand born entrepreneur who moved to Australia in 2002. The co-founder of Skate Connection and Coast Skateboards, Brett has 16 years of experience owning retail spaces with a study background in accounting.

Their showrooms have provided fun wheel products from families to athletes who enjoy the surf/skate lifestyle. In 2019, Skate Connection was voted by Vend as one of Aussie's most remarkable retailers.

    Finding The Best Candidate For Your Business with Julian Van Der Waal

    Finding The Best Candidate For Your Business with Julian Van Der Waal

    If your people haven't really bought into the "why?" -- it's maybe because you don't have it. Businesses lack their overall purpose, centering on the WHAT instead of focusing on WHY. In recruitment, this vision and sense of direction are what your potential perfect candidates are also looking into. 
    In this episode, I share these insights with Business Consultant and Master Sales Coach Julian Van der Waal and discuss the crucial things entrepreneurs and business leaders need to communicate firsthand to get the perfect candidates on board.
    Key points covered in this episode:
    (00:01:24) Learn 5 Dimensional Coaching.
    (00:02:27) Build your habits around your concept of spirituality.
    (00:05:22) Why femininity in business is important.
    (00:07:13) Your energy has a massive impact on the people around you.
    (00:08:34) Like a phone, you need to stay charged to work in ultimate performance.
    (00:10:42) When you go on a holiday, please do it for yourself, not for social media.
    (00:15:54) A good candidate goes searching to connect with your "why."
    (00:20:37) Too many times, entrepreneurs default to hiring people like them, which is the exact opposite of what they need. 
    (00:28:01) The only way to succeed in scale is to have your people doing one thing and do that one thing really well.
    (00:30:24) If you have to do everything, you don't have a business but a job.
    (00:45:17) Recruit people based on their zone of genius.
    (00:57:35) Remember, a job ad is still an ad.
    Julian Van der Waal is quickly becoming one of Australia's most sought-after Sales Coaches and Business Consultants. Julian consults globally for business and strategic advice.

    Make 'Em Beg To Work For You with Dr. Angela Lauria

    Make 'Em Beg To Work For You with Dr. Angela Lauria

    As a leader and a business owner, it is our responsibility to create a safe space for our people. In this episode, Founder and CEO Dr Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator, named to multiple lists of Top 500 Small Businesses in America, shares this valuable reminder that she emphasizes in her book Make 'Em Beg To Work For You. 
    Key points covered in this episode:
    (00:00): Welcome to Barrels and Business!
    (00:14:26): To reach the next level of evolution, bring the divine feminine in and learn to receive. Angela recognizes how men have led the way in business for so long, yet she believes that we cannot bring old and male-centric practices into the future.
    (00:20:05): Serve the seven human needs of an employee if you truly want to make them productive and profitable. Businesses often forget that people's happiness is the greatest factor for success. 
     (00:45:09) Stop treating your virtual or remote teams like an app. Jade Greene reminds owners & managers that you can't just press the button, and your people will spit out quality work.

    (00:51:00) There are hot employers out there in every industry of every size. And if you want someone to beg to work for you, you have to at least a little bit want to be awesome. Become so valuable by focusing on your growth as a professional.
    (01:21:07) As a company, you have to make a stand for a cause... even if it creates controversy.
    (01:37:06) Love your employees as much as you love your clients.
    (01:48:53) Have a hiring process, not an unconscious bias.
    (01:51:36) Identify the win-win and make sure the compensation is aligned to meet the goals.
    (02:05:07) There's no external exercise that you can do that will make up for the internal work that your employees will feel every day.

    Jade Green and Kyle Probert on How Taking Downtime Increases Your Productivity

    Jade Green and Kyle Probert on How Taking Downtime Increases Your Productivity

    How often do you take DOWNTIME?
    Most people end up FEELING GUILTY just thinking about “not being productive” and taking some time to relax and decompress. 
    Well, GUESS WHAT! Taking time off can actually FILL YOUR CUP with energy and creativity!
    This is something that applies to everyone in the business, from the leader to the newest employee. Taking a break is NECESSARY to be able to give your best! And this doesn’t only apply to work.
    Creating a third space where you can take a breath and have some TIME FOR YOURSELF helps you bring the RIGHT INTENT wherever you go. Taking this time can help you leave work behind and be TRULY PRESENT when you get home. 
    Kyle and Jade provide you with great tools during this beer o’clock Tuesday! There are many different things you can do while you are switching from one role in your life to another. Be it meditation, listening to a podcast that has NOTHING TO DO with work, or reading a book.
    The very FIRST STEP is identifying what is that thing that brings you joy? You can look back to before you became SO BUSY and realize that there’s something you loved to do that you simply don’t do anymore!
    Next step? Write it down, plan for it and MAKE SURE you actually DO IT! Kyle has some excellent TOOLS that will help you in this process. Remember, sometimes you need to SLOW DOWN to go faster!
    If you’re a business leader, create the space for your employees to take downtime too. An amazing strategy? DESIGNATE A TIME towards the end of the day in which they can unload and ensure they get out of the work mindset. 
    The LAST THING anyone wants is for them to be worried about work when they are spending time with their families or enjoying their alone space.
    Filling your cup by taking a break can look like many things! Taking a walk at the end of the day with your partner, surfing, going camping. BEING OUTDOORS is one of the best ways to connect with nature and break away from your busy days.
    Jade also remarks on the importance of GIVING YOURSELF PERMISSION to enjoy your downtime. Get rid of that GUILT that has been programmed into you and allow yourself to ENJOY. You won’t regret it!
    Feel free to share with us those things you do when you take some downtime! Kyle and Jade go surfing and share some family time. Plus, CONNECTING WITH NATURE is at the core of what they enjoy. 
    What is YOUR downtime?
    Do you want to learn ALL THE TOOLS to take some guilt-free downtime? Listen RIGHT NOW!
    Key points 
    (00:00): Welcome to Barrels and Business!(02:54): The concept of third space.(05:53): Thinking about your intent in every role you have in your life and understanding what you want to bring to the table is key to make the most of it.(08:59): Tools that you can use to find that third space.(12:45): Thinking about what makes you “you”.(18:06): The importance of finding what your energy drainers are and programming some downtime to recover.(23:01): Encouraging employees to have their downtime is also a productivity tool that allows them to come back refreshed and more creative.(26:53): You can encourage your team to do a download at the end of the day, giving everyone the space to clear their heads and stop bringing work concerns home.(34:59): Tools such as meditation are not about silence but about taking the time to increase your awareness of the world.(40:08): How to take a break effectively.(46:27): After identifying what you like to do and planning for it, the next step is to just do the thing without overthinking it.(49:27): How trying too hard when you are surfing sends the wrong energy and makes it almost impossible to catch any waves. (57:17): Kyle and Jade’s way of finding their downtime.
