    Stella Nsong Reveals How Companies Can Help Family Caregiver Employees and Soar to Success

    My guest on the Soar to Success podcast is Stella Nsong. She has spent most of her adult life working with elder care issues and shares with us how companies and employees can meet this huge problem head on.
    Her mission is to help every business, regardless of size, to establish an employee elder care assistance program so that their employees, who are family caregivers will have a plan and a backup system for providing care at home. Her plan will also improve work life balance, including selfcare, personal health, and mental wellness for the caregiver. Production at work will improve with less absenteeism, higher productivity, and lower health insurance benefit utilization.

    Bob Kulhan Uses Improv to Help Businesses Soar to Success

    Bob Kulhan has been helping business people understand and react more successfully for over 20 years, using his skills in improv.

    He was a member of Chicago’s famed Second City acting group and has performed in the iO and Annoyance Theaters, as well as the PIT in New York City.

    In our interview, Bob explains his technique of, Yes, And, explained in his book, “Getting To YES And-The Art of Business Improv.” The phrase, Yes, and, is the cornerstone of improvisation. For example, in a sales conversation, rather than being satisfied with a No answer, or an objection to your presentation, simply respond with, Yes, And --- what can we do to make our product work for you? Always keep the client engaged and let them tell you what they need and explain how you can fill that need.

    Patrick Ungashick Shares Business Owner Exit Plan Strategies on the Soar to Success Podcast

    Patrick Ungashick, owner of NAVIX Consultants and author of the books, Dance in the End Zone, The Business Owner’s Exit Planning Playbook and A Tale of Two Owners, Achieving Exit Success Between Business Co-Owners, was recently on the Soar to Success podcast. It was an enlightening conversation about how to get a business ready for a happy and successful outcome when the owner exits.

    Patrick shared that adopting Stephen Covey’s Habit 2: Begin with the End In Mind is something that business owners should think about at minimum five years out from their projected exit date, but what would be even better, is to form their business with that end in mind.

    We discussed some of the things business owners should consider when preparing for their exit, such as to:
    1.Structure the company so that it thrives without them – Patrick called it owner independence
    2.Know what value means to their business
    3.Be able to identify the exit magic number

    In addition, we had an informative conversation about the additional considerations when the business is family owned as well as when it’s important to have a business valuation.

    Tom Gerencer Reveals How to Use SEO and Content Writing to Soar to Success

    Tom Gerencer Reveals How to Use SEO and Content Writing to Soar to Success

    Tom Gerencer, author of the book, Think Like Google, Use SEO & Empathy to Rank, Convert, and Profit no Matter How Much They Change the Rules was recently on the Soar to Success podcast. It was an enlightening conversation about how to get your content to rank on Google. If you have ever tried using keywords to get a piece of content to rank, only to have Google make one of their frequent algorithm changes, you’ll really appreciate what Tom has to say.

    We talked about the best length for a blog post but more importantly how to use empathy to rank. Did you know that Google measures how long someone stays on your piece of content? This is an oversimplification of what Tom said, but basically Google tracks how long people stay on your article and all the competing articles that are served to a searcher and deems the ones that readers stay on longer as more applicable to the term or phrase they used in the search bar. So as writers of content, we need to determine what will cause the reader to linger.

    Tom explains the tools that we can use to determine who are searcher is and why they are searching so we can write articles that solve our readers problem. You will get some of the details about how to do this on our podcast. Very specific instructions are in his book. I encourage you to listen to the podcast and also read the book, so you can have the formula right in front of you. As you’re reading his book, you’ll quickly see that he is a true writer. He makes it easy and fun to read, even if it is about ranking using Google.
