    Dealing with Remote Working Burnout W/ Phil Strazzulla

    Dealing with Remote Working Burnout W/ Phil Strazzulla

    For many of us, our homes have turned into workspaces since the pandemic started. And while employee burnout isn’t unheard of, remote working burnout seems to be an even more rampant problem that’s been on the rise since. Today, I talk to Phil Strazzulla of SelectSoftware Reviews about work from home burnout, and how we can help employees better cope with it.

    One of the main consequences of the pandemic was how it accelerated the transition to remote work for a lot of businesses. While this is a positive change for a lot of companies in many ways, it has also had some adverse effects.

    This rapid adjustment to the change in work setup has undoubtedly had an effect on employees in the form of work from home burnout, not to mention the additional stresses to the average worker – fear of the Corona Virus, the global recession, the war in Ukraine – these have all made coping with remote working burnout an even more challenging task.

    All these factors together have indeed taken employee burnout to a whole new level. And as business leaders, it’s our responsibility to try and mitigate this.

    Stay tuned to hear more of my conversation with Phil Strazzulla of SelectSoftware Reviews, as we dive deep into the problem of remote working burnout or work from home burnout in today’s increasingly digital workplace.

    Creating Conversations that Convert W/ Kate DiLeo

    Creating Conversations that Convert W/ Kate DiLeo

    In this episode, I talk to Kate DiLeo about how to create meaningful conversations so you can truly engage with customers, and have better ways to take people through your customer journey so you can reach a level of customer engagement that actually converts.

    It all comes down to the types of conversations you’re having. If you’re simply throwing information at people, then they won’t want to engage. But when you speak to them and develop a connection through your brand message, you’ll be able to better convert your traffic.

    What made us predisposed to generic, megaphone marketing in the first place?

    For one thing, there’s sales funnels. These allow marketers to offer multiple ways of purchasing, and hit audiences with multiple offers. But this involves an overwhelming amount of information which doesn’t really help us engage with customers.

    Then there's "Story Brand". This is about making the customer the center of your story. The problem is that many of us took that idea, and ended up writing paragraph after paragraph about ourselves, without allowing room for meaningful conversations and true customer engagement.

    If you want to create a more effective way to keep people engaged throughout the customer journey, you first have to ask yourself if you’re actually creating conversations that convert. Do you push them to take the next step?

    To do so, you need to focus on your brand messaging. Order of messaging is critical. Buyers want to know what you do, how you can solve their problem, and how you're different from your competitors.

    Today, meaningful conversations and the resulting customer engagement are the keys to successful marketing. People don’t want to be bombarded by information. They want to take part in their own customer journey.

    Remember, know who you’re going after, know where they’re showing up, and engage with customers by always writing messages that resonate with your ideal customer.

    The Secret To Successful Investments W/ Bret Rosenthal

    The Secret To Successful Investments W/ Bret Rosenthal

    In this episode, I sit down with Bret Rosenthal, founder of the ARMR report, to discuss how to make successful investments, and how to build wealth through intelligent investing.

    Right now, it’s no secret that the world seems very unstable. For investors, it can seem like a scary time to put money into something.

    But rather than simply hold on to your cash, you can still invest. And you can still end up with great returns on your investments. You just need to go about it the right way. Like, say, a hedge fund.

    You see, there's a reason why hedge funds tend to make successful investments and outperform individual investors. It's because they're always taking different positions and different sides. They know how to build wealth because they understand intelligent investing. It doesn't matter if it's a bull or a bear market.

    Whereas for individual investors, they find an idea that they want to invest in, and use their portfolio as a basket to see if it works. Hedge funds don't do that. They put the idea on a whiteboard first, and do exhaustive research BEFORE they invest.

    The ARMR report helps individuals learn to invest almost like when you do in hedge funds. With it, you can have the research you need to help you become better at investing, get rid of the emotions, and rely on the best available algorithms for informed decisions.

    Anyone can learn how to build wealth and make successful investments regardless of the market conditions, especially with a tool like the ARMR report. It allows you to navigate any kind of financial environment, and always come out ahead.

    Watch until the end as I discuss intelligent investing with Bret Rosenthal.

    How to get better results from remote working? W/ Owen McGab Enaohwo

    How to get better results from remote working? W/ Owen McGab Enaohwo

    It's been two years into the pandemic, and many companies are now working remotely. Some have found it to be an easy transition but others found difficulties adjusting their business processes.

    Today, I talk to Owen McGab Enaohwo, CEO and co-founder of SweetProcess, about how documenting processes can help get better results from this new work setup that a lot of us have adopted, and the process solutions that can help companies thrive in this new normal.

    There’s no doubt about it: the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we work – possibly FOREVER. Remote working is one of the best and worst things to have come out of the pandemic, depending on how you look at it. Many people are split when it comes to the subject of remote working. Some find it bad for productivity and mental health, while others find it an efficient use of time and resources.

    But for those who don’t believe in remote working, could the real issue just be an inability to command and control their workforces? And for those who do, what process solutions can help optimize remote work possibilities?

    Owen McGab Enaohwo of SweetProcess offers answers to these questions, and even shares detailed steps to help sufficiently define business processes, and aid in properly documenting processes for a more efficient and effective collaboration among employees, especially when doing remote work.

    Owen strongly believes that the ability of companies to adapt and thrive in the midst of these changing working conditions all boils down to operating procedures and properly documenting processes.

    Stay tuned to learn more about getting better results from remote working through the right business processes and process solutions, and gain more insights from Owen McGab Enaohwo of SweetProcess.

    What Stops Us From Executing Ideas W/ B. Jeffrey Madoff

    What Stops Us From Executing Ideas W/ B. Jeffrey Madoff

    So many people have plenty of great ideas. But only a few people actually make theirs see the light of day. Why?

    Well, in today’s episode of The Transition Guy, I’m joined by professor and author of “Creative Careers: Making a Living with Your Ideas”, B. Jeffrey Madoff, to talk about executing ideas successfully, getting things done, and why not a lot of us are able to do just that.

    The truth is that a lot of us have brilliant ideas, and yet so few of us see them through. Making a living out of our creative ideas is possible but very few do so. Not everyone takes action.

    You might’ve, in one occasion or another, said that you’ve had an idea or a few ones way before anyone else had them. But why have you not done anything with them? What makes executing ideas so difficult that only a couple of us are actually getting things done?

    As B. Jeffrey Madoff shares, he always starts his first day of class asking students, “How many of you have been…somewhere where you’ve seen things and said, ‘Oh, I had that same idea! I could’ve done that.’?” And he follows it up with, “So what’s the difference between you and them?”

    The answer that eventually comes up from the students? Those people actually did it. They made it happen.

    How can you do that yourself? The first step, as Jeffrey suggests, is to actualize your idea. Have a proof of concept. Put your product or your service out there. Test it and see if there are people willing to buy it.

    Admittedly, executing ideas isn’t the easiest thing to do. But ideas are only as good as what actually makes it to the market. I talk more about getting things done with B. Jeffrey Madoff, so stay tuned until the end to know what it takes to execute ideas successfully.

    How to tell stories people believe? W/ Jamie Dixon

    How to tell stories people believe? W/ Jamie Dixon

    In this episode, I sit down with Jamie Dixon, author of “The Story Habit”, to talk about some of the techniques behind learning how to tell a story.

    Why is storytelling in business important to leaders?

    Well, to answer that question we should first look at what storytelling is. Essentially, storytelling is the art of making meaning.

    Great storytelling in business is a vital part of getting people’s buy-in. This is the most relevant application to business leaders. As Jamie Dixon points out, learning how to tell a story involves shaping the narratives that people believe in. Everyone has things that they believe that aren't necessarily true, so how can you correct or influence people’s beliefs?

    There are a lot of parallels between the process of telling a story and learning how to shape one. It comes down to three key words: relate, challenge, and resolve. When storytelling in business, you first have to relate to the listener. Then, challenge them somehow, and eventually resolve whatever tension you've created.

    Beyond that, Jamie Dixon suggests that you pay attention to great storytellers so you can do better storytelling in business. Anyone who is a great public speaker will be able to relate to the audience, challenge them, and then resolve. By circling in on what they do well, you can pick up ideas that’ll teach you how to tell a story more effectively.
