    Breaking Through Revenue Plateaus With Jose Palomino (EP 62)

    Breaking Through Revenue Plateaus With Jose Palomino (EP 62)

    The number one reason why businesses fail is they run out of cash. One study showed that 82% of companies that fail do so because of cash flow problems.

    Here’s the really surprising figure…. Only 40% of businesses are profitable - while 30% are actually continually LOSING MONEY!

    Those figures are WILD - especially given how hard us business owners work, which is exactly why we’re so excited for today’s episode.

    Welcome back to The Biz Doctor podcast, join your host Lauren Goldstein and guest Jose Palomino - today we are going to dive into the wild ride of revenue.

    Make sure you listen to the end because Jose is going to share some very impactful advice on How to Break Through Revenue Plateaus

    Resentment: Wiping Out This Silent Killer of Teams (EP 61)

    Resentment: Wiping Out This Silent Killer of Teams (EP 61)

    When it comes to an employer/employee relationship, I believe there is really only one thing that can’t be overcome, and that is resentment.

    Welcome back to The Biz Doctor podcast, with your host, Lauren Goldstein, we’ll talk about a feeling and emotion that has been on a lot of lips lately and that is resentment.

    Lauren says “I will go to my grave saying resentment is one that once it creeps in, that employee HAS to go. This is an emotion that, once infected, is almost impossible to eradicate, in fact, it is the kiss of death in my opinion.”

    It seems like it is something that’s talked about more and more by employees and employers, so we’ll take some time today and really dive into what it is, where it comes from, and what to do about it if it is infecting someone on your team.

    Key takeaways:
    First, outside of pink eye, this is the most contagious disease in the workplace, this toxicity is sneaky, consuming, and toxic.Second, rarely if ever can someone become UN resentful once they have crossed that chasm.Last but not least, resentment can be the gateway to self and subconscious sabotage ... subconscious or conscious thoughts of “this will show them” will be illuminated in their behavior if you start to pay attention.CTAs/Resources

    How To Internally Promote The RIGHT Way (EP 59)

    How To Internally Promote The RIGHT Way (EP 59)

    Do you have someone in your team who is a rockstar and you keep going back and forth on if you should promote them to a leadership position or not?

    Weighing the pros and cons while also secretly worrying that you might be promoting a high-performing team member to their detriment?

    Well, you aren’t alone and this is the very subject. We’re going to dive into it today.
    Welcome back to The Biz Doctor Podcast, with your host Lauren Goldstein.

    Today we’ll talk about how you can internally promote someone the right way to ensure more success, team harmony, and effectiveness.

    Key takeaways:
    This is the three-part question you ask anyone before I even consider promoting them into leadership. Spoiler, if they answer no to any part, they get to stay where they are for the time being.Don’t make their job security a factor if they say no. Allow them to accept or reject the promotion without fear.Have them go through a set interview process, similar to if they were an outside applicant to make sure they really are the one for the role.
