    Ep. 3.36 | Return on Relationship with Christopher Vos

    Ep. 3.36 | Return on Relationship with Christopher Vos

    It is no secret that I believe in the power of relationship marketing.  In fact, most people would tell you that I am down right LOUD and PROUD about it.  So, as you can likely imagine, anyone with the word RELATIONSHIP in the title of their business is destined to be a colleague and a friend.  I met Christopher on my entrepreneurial journey and his ROR Method is something that every business owner, entrepreneur and career driven professional should know about.  
    Take-aways from this week's episode are: 
    - How relationships are the foundation of your business
    - Why you should start creating these powerful and meaningful relationships in your life and business
    - How the story of when to dig a well and when to plant a tree can help you understand the ROR Method.

    Ep. 3.35 | The Core of Company Culture with JORDANAH Events

    Ep. 3.35 | The Core of Company Culture with JORDANAH Events

    Like entrepreneurship, the event and hospitality industry is not for the faint of heart.  Take this high stressed, faced paced environment and operate in the entertainment industry container and you will find yourself in a proverbial pressure cooker!  It is there that you will routinely find JORDANAH events.  I met Stacey when I was the Director of Events at The Beverly Hilton and I was immediately impressed by her capability, commitment and core values.  When she left her corporate job and joined Jessica at JORDANAH events I knew that they were destined for event greatness and I am not at all ashamed to say that I was right!  Their successful and sought after event planning firm is a major player in the industry and they stopped by the People First Then Profit Podcast to talk about the importance of Core Values and how they have faithfully and effectively serve their clients and team for a good many years.
    Takeaways from this week's episode are:
    - The importance of identifying your core values and ensuring they are a part of your company culture.
    - Why "how you do" is equally important as "what you actually do" (maybe more).
    - The importance of the decisions we make regarding how we treat our clients, our team and OURSELVES.

    Ep. 3.34 | Time Mastery with Paul Von Bloem

    Ep. 3.34 | Time Mastery with Paul Von Bloem

    I met Paul quite some time ago through our mutual friend Kathryn Jones and I knew early on (if not immediately) that he was intelligent, dedicate and deeply passionate about his mission and his message.  In this week's episode I talk with Paul about a four-letter word. No, not that one.  We talked about time and how you can shift your mindset as well as take actionable steps towards accomplishing all the things you want to get done.
    Your takeaways from this week's episode are:
    “How are most business owners managing their time?”
    “Why is time management so difficult for business owners?”
    “How do we fix this time management issue?”

    From the moment I met and started chatting with Emily I knew that we were aligned, that we would collaborate and that she would make an exceptional guest on the People First Then Profit Podcast.  Fortunately for me (and you) she did not disappoint.  As a matter of fact she CRUSHED IT.

    - People pay you to solve problems. They buy the end result.
    - Fail as fast a possible so you can find what works.

    Ep. 3.31 | Live Events are Returning. Are You Ready?

    Ep. 3.31 | Live Events are Returning. Are You Ready?

    The live event industry is rather similar to a champagne bottle that has been shaken but not yet opened.  When it pops, it is going to POP OFF.  The question is, are you ready?  It's game time baby!  Which means that getting back into shape, running drills, learning new plays and working on your fundamentals is going to be the key difference between the champions and, well, the others.  In my last solo-cast, at least for the time being, I am talking about the second part of my shiny new beacon statement as it relates to the reemergence of the Live Events industry.  
    Your take-aways from this week's episode are:
    - Understanding what the (4) foundational elements of business are and what that means to you.
    - A mini audit that you can take to see where you are weak and in which areas you may have opportunity to improve.
    - Information regarding my interactive workshop being offered on April 8 to provide you with the knowledge and resources you need to get out of the gate better, smarter and faster than your competition so you can get more than your fair share of that coveted event market.
