    Financial Planning and Business Insurance Protection

    Financial Planning and Business Insurance Protection

    Today's topic is going to be about financial planning, and our guest today is John Stoj, whose career in finance began on Wall Street nearly 25 years ago. He learned that the financial services industry is full of people interested in taking advantage of their clients. He watched the financial industry meltdown in 2008 and came to realization that working for the best interest of his customers is worth every penny of his fees.

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    After it became apparent to John that the Wall Street that he knew and loved wasn't as lovable as he first thought, he just wanted to do a complete 180 and decided to open a food business.
    His business was in food manufacturing because he knew the high failure rate of restaurants. He might still be doing this today if it wasn’t for the birth of his son meaning he had to ditch the late nights working.
    One of the most important things when building a business and eventually preparing to sell it is keeping a book of business that exists even after you walk out the door. It’s the paperwork and the proof of cash flow, showing your contracts and clients, proving to buyers that you are worth buying.
    The second thing that John has learned and would recommend to you is to document everything. Make everything a process and record those processes. That way anyone can continue to use those processes to create the same quality output.

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘What's the instruction book to run the company? And so if you provide that to them, they're going to be a heck of a lot more comfortable’

    ‘It's not just financial documentation that should be complete, but also the systems documentation for your business processes’

    ‘There's always pressures on your price’

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    John Stoj's career in finance began on Wall Street nearly 25 years ago and traveled from banks to money management to a hedge fund before landing at a sushi kitchen. This experience taught him that the financial services industry is full of people interested in taking advantage of their clients first and foremost. After stepping away from business to raise a child, he watched the financial industry meltdown in 2008 and came to a realization; that a financial advisory working for the best interests of its customers would be worth every penny of its fees.

    How To Protect Your Business From Cybercrime With The World's First Autonomous Cyber Security Hardware Solution

    How To Protect Your Business From Cybercrime With The World's First Autonomous Cyber Security Hardware Solution

    Today Nana is joined on the podcast by Diana Mouring of DS Labs to discuss how to protect your business from Cyber crime. DS Labs sells a Cyber Security Solution called n@d@r, and it is the world’s first autonomous Cyber Security hardware solution for small to mid-sized businesses with 100% endpoint security that uses machine learning to stop threats faster.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS

     


    The more internet devices we add to our businesses, the more vulnerabilities we add to our networks, and unfortunately for us, that means more things we have to protect.
    n@d@r is not software but a hardware solution that sits rightbehind your firewall. What that means is 100% of your internet traffic comes and goes through the device, so it's able to watch everything that is going on and looks for indicators of compromise and indicators of attack so that it can autonomously stop those things from happening within your business.
    n@d@r stands for Network Anomaly Detection and Response.
    Last year there was a big Las Vegas casino that was hacked through the heating system on their aquarium. They were able to get onto their wifi, and from there it was an internal attack, most devices don't look for that type of attack.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

     

    ‘The problem is that hackers get smarter by the day. This is their nine to five job’

    ‘The National Cyber Security Alliance says that 60% of small businesses will be out of business within six months of a data breach’

    ‘If you think about the fence around your backyard, it keeps what you want in, in and what you want out, out’

    Systemizing Business Process at the Multimillion Dollar Level

    Systemizing Business Process at the Multimillion Dollar Level

    Today we’re talking about systems on Build Value By Choice with Nana and his guest Shanice Miller. Shanice is a business productivity consultant, specializing in project management, who helps clients ranging from small startups to multi-million dollar businesses save hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    Shanice originally started as an educational consultant and her own experience is what inspired her to start helping and project managing and working with businesses to do that at the multimillion-dollar level.
    When Shanice listed her business on the online marketplace, it made her realize that her business wasn't set up with the correct systems in place to get the amount that Shanice knew it was worth. It ended up selling for a five-figure profit, but she knew I could have gotten six figures after looking at other businesses.
    Communication and keeping the information in your head are the two biggest mistakes Shanice sees. keep it all in their head. Instead of documenting, listing out the tasks that they need to do, putting it on paper, and having it streamlined so that everyone knows what everyone's doing at the time without having to send an email or ask the other person, they try to keep the information in their heads.
    When it comes to hiring, having your business processes in place is what separates small businesses from the ones that will turn over millions of dollars. If you already know what you need in terms of training, personnel, and their targets, then you’ll have massively streamlined your hiring and training process.
    One simple thing you can do is to centralize your administration and project management tools into one place instead of having one thing on Slack and another on Google Docs etc.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

     

    ‘Freedom is the highest thing we can aspire to’

    ‘You’re trying to grow your business, not thinking about systemizing it’

    ‘The main challenge is the time factor’

    ‘She freed up 20 hours of her time by delegating’

     

    FREE OFFER

    If you're up for it, Shanice would love to offer your listeners something that complements the

    contents of her interview. Your listeners may be feeling overwhelmed or exhausted and want to

    ABOUT THE GUEST

    Shanice Miller is a business productivity consultant, specializing in project management, who helps clients ranging from small startups to multi-million dollar businesses save hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. Her passion for identifying and solving inefficiencies began when she sold her first business, an educational consultancy that had been recognized in Forbes and BET, at a less than premium price point because she didn’t have her systems and processes streamlined and documented. Over the last 10 years, Shanice has used her ability to identify operational inefficiencies and create solutions to not only help save her clients’ businesses (and hairlines), but to also fall in love with them again.

    Investing in Personal Development with Orrin Lieuwen

    Investing in Personal Development with Orrin Lieuwen

    Today’s guest Orrin Lieuwen is a mindset guide who helps frustrated and overwhelmed entrepreneurs and business owners understand how they create their beliefs and emotions and how to change them to make better results. Tune into Build Value By Choice as Nana and Orrin discuss the gains you can make in your business by investing in personal development.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS


    A business is made of people, if you want to improve the business then you should work on improving the people. Personal development is the root that allows businesses to grow inside and out.
    Your self-concept is essentially how you think about yourself, this is made up of all the different self-beliefs you hold. This could be around a fear of failure or a lack of productivity. By changing how we think about ourselves, it removes the mental blocks that stand in our way.
    You can’t fix what you don’t know, so if you never delve into what you believe about yourself, you’ll never be able to change and get a better outcome.
    When you’re stressed and overwhelmed, try to be intentional and not get lost in your feelings. Be intelligent about your feelings and emotions and learn what causes them and how to deal with them.
    If you want to make incremental changes, change your behaviours. If you want to make a quantum change, change your paradigms, and the way you’re looking at things.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    ‘So much of the work is done in the subconscious’

    ‘Outsource your thinking so I can help you improve your work’

    ‘Values are your desires. How are you going to pursue them outside your business’

Excellent podcast on growing and scaling a business

Such an AMAZING podcast that talks about all parts of business such as scaling, growing, systematizing, and even personal development and getting your business ready to scale! The guests are very knowledgable with easy to use steps!

Winecheesequichelady21 ,

Such a great episode with Danielle Mulvey

Danielle’s advice about avoiding a bad hire by utilizing shadow days in the recruitment process is brilliant. Paying a candidate for a few hours to experience the job firsthand is better than paying someone for weeks and discovering it’s a bad fit.

BizownerX3 ,

Enlightening podcast

I found your podcast episode with Danielle (#44)very enlightening and fresh – never thought about some of the ideas mentioned – to include the importance of a daily huddle.

We have tried this but it seems we are always running around and putting out fires. We need to put the daily group huddle in place and stick with it – I think it also keeps employees accountable on a daily basis. Keep up the great work!
