But we're also offering takes on life, culture, and business as we go. It's all up for discussion, and nothing is too far "outside the box."
Episode 8: Generation Zeal Estate with Beth Burke
The world is always turning. The sun comes up, the sun goes down, people join the workforce, and people leave the workforce. And while the baby boomer generation is still working hard (or hardly working), when it comes to Real Estate, there's no shortage of opportunity for young blood. And in a company as fresh as Whitebox Real Estate that was forged in the fires of change, it's safe to say growth in an ever-changing market needs to be handled with an ever-changing mindset. That's why Grant invited Beth Burke into the studio to talk about her new role at Whitebox, how she'll be integrating into the team in what Grant deems as an absolutely crucial role at the company, and the steps she'll be taking to work on Whitebox's culture in the age of the millennial workforce and the introduction of Generation Z into the modern workspace.
