    Quotes
    “One thing led to another because there was a need in the market for the mentoring, counseling, training, the kind of start up support stuff that we do.  And now, we probably touch 1,200 entrepreneurs a year through one-on-one counseling.  And in normal times we put on 250 events, and all that stuff, thanks to the hard work of Caleb and the whole crew, is now virtual.”  (10:46) 

    “We decided, let’s give the Zoom platform a shot, as far as recording the podcast.  I think that really opened it up for us where we weren’t just having local entrepreneur guests on.  It gave us an opportunity to expand out and invite people that we otherwise would not have been able to invite on.”  (16:26)

    “You can be more conversational if you get a sense for the types of things that people are going to want to hear about.  How’d you get started?  How did you raise money?  How do you deal with building the team?  What kind of challenges do you face?  That sort of stuff.” (24:53)

    “[Matthew has] kind of streamlined the process for bringing [guests] on and getting them scheduled.  Part of that is getting some seeds of fun facts.  He’s got a questionnaire of some things to kind of pull from them that we can throw out during the podcast.”  (25:32)

    Quotes
    “If you don’t feel comfortable making videos, I promise you, if you just start, you’re going to find that it’s a lot easier than you ever though it was going to be.” (16:15)

    “The more deliberate you can be about explaining, here’s what I need you to do next, and here’s how easy I’ve made it to do that next thing – That’s where you’re going to really start winning and getting the responses you want.” (18:23)

    “Once these other customer-facing teams are engaging with these prospects and customers, they need more help to keep bringing more value throughout.” (23:52)

    “There’s so many ways to do this stuff more effectively.  It’s not the tool, it’s you.  You just have to be willing to be more creative in your process – and lucky for most sales professionals and other people in a customer-facing role, being creative is something that a lot of highly successful people in that space are actually good at.”  (35:28)

    “I think the second we start really, truly thinking about what experience am I creating around this sale for my buyer – if we really think about that, that’s when we start really, truly refining our process and getting out of the things that we did 12 months ago that were successful but aren’t anymore.”  (35:54)

    Quotes

    “I think we could all kind of look back and say, ‘thank you’ to our first boss who hired us. Like, why did he hire me? I no clue.”
     (7:05) - Ella Jane Dantzler

    “I think harvest and the founders really were intentional about the values that they chose and carrying those forward. And 15 years later, we're still talking about those same values.
    (11:29) - Ella Jane Dantzler

    “Our clients often comment on our culture and how you want to work with somebody who you like.” 
    (12:09) - Ella Jane Dantzler

    “[On documenting, not creating,] And I think that you've done that through a lot... rather than like, Hey, we need to make a social media post. What can we do? And what can we come up with? It's like, I'm just going to document what we're doing and we're just already doing it.”
    (12:35) - Bryan Fittin

From culture-building to leaving space for creative side projects, we hash it all out on this episode. 

    Authenticity on Social Media 
    Harvest Group has taken considerable measures to use social media authentically. We are not all hoodwinked into dismissing the amount of curating and crafting that goes on for a typical companies post. Harvest Group wanted to create a culture that could be documented at any time and continue to push forward its values as a healthy, thriving, and fun company. 

    With that being said, there still needs to be a strategy; you cannot just throw things out there. Where is the line of between high quality and accuracy without being posed? 

    A key ingredient for Ella Jane is to ask herself if the post would be adding value. Would it add value to the team, to the client, to the person scrolling?

    "if I'm scrolling through LinkedIn, Actually learning something, or if I'm not learning something applicable about my business, I'm lea
