    Advice
    I would say while COVID has us sheltering in place and many people listening to this now will see a lot of the limitations lifted off of where they live. But no matter where you are, if you're sheltering in place, or if you're heading back into the office, you still can connect online with people.
    I encourage you to expand your network, meet someone new, set up a virtual coffee meeting over zoom or Skype or hang out or whatever that may be. Just find a way to build your network, learn something new, and learn about someone new. That's my parting thought.

    We both are HR folks to our core and we know this is a really challenging time right now. To really support peoplee in every way possible. We are doing free consultations. Feel free to reach out to us. We're happy to jump on a call and talk through any challenges that you might have. 
    Right now there's no roadmap on how to work through COVID-19. We also see a really great opportunity to employ and to improve the employee experience and increase representation and fairness within the workforce. If you're working for your organization on how to improve some of your processes, we're happy to talk through and help you figure out how you might do that.

    Advice
    Top of mind for us right now has been employee experience in so many different ways. This has come out in our conversation, where companies are really defining themselves on how they're treating their employees through the COVID-19 crisis. Being flexible and supportive in when folks are working and what those expectations might be based on people that are directly indirectly impacted by COVID-19. 
    But also, you know, being flexible and recognizing the reminder of the systemic racial and injustices that are happening and the impact that it's having on employees as well and taking a stand in solidarity. But also looking internally as an organization and how you can be better as an organization internally also. I just I think it's been a tough time. But I think this is also an opportunity to see change, a shift for improvement. We believe we can improve the employee experience. But they've got to be intentional and they've got to be thoughtful in how they approach it.

    A Talk with Dr. Aditya Nagrath, Chancellor, Elephant Learning Math Academy

    A Talk with Dr. Aditya Nagrath, Chancellor, Elephant Learning Math Academy

    On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Dr. Aditya Nagrath, Chancellor, Elephant Learning Math Academy
    CavnessHR website: https://www.cavnessHR.com
    Jason’s email: jasoncavness@cavnessHR.com
    @cavnessHR  across social media
    @jasoncavnessHR across social media
    We talk about the following
    What is wrong with the way the world teaches math.
    The importance of public speaking.
    Elephant Learning Math Academy.
    Why HR is important
    Aditya’s Bio
    Dr. Aditya Nagrath is a visionary leader on a mission to change the way that the world teaches mathematics. Dr. Nagrath is the co-founded Elephant Learning Math Academy which is a gamification of a proven curriculum. On average, children in Elephant Learning learn 1.5 years of mathematics in 10 weeks using the system just 30 minutes per week.
    Dr. Nagrath, at age 14, taught himself C++ and continued on to read books on game development and neural networks which are the basis for modern day artificial intelligence. He graduated from the University of Denver with a dual major of Mathematics and Computer Science, continuing on to graduate school while working full time as a software developer to graduate with a PhD in Mathematics & Computer Science 7 years later.
    After at decade in University, Dr. Nagrath graduated to found Elephant Head Software where he lead a team of no more than 10 engineers to bring over 35 different product lines with over 50 different applications to market between 2009 and 2016. In 2016, Dr. Nagrath co-founded Elephant Learning with Professor Alvaro Arias from the University of Denver in order to bring transformational change to America's education system. 
    3 out of 4 students are not proficient at High School Mathematics, leading to 69% of STEM majors switching majors to a major with less mathematics. Math deficiencies happen completely amongst income lines leading to a preservation of the cycle of poverty as mathematic scores often predict high school drop out and over all scores.
    Elephant Learning provides mathematical activities from counting to calculus that are proven to foster deep understanding in mathematics with transformational results for children through all walks of life. Empowerment is understanding the concepts that hold us back, enjoyment in the classroom setting is understanding the teacher.
    Dr. Nagrath is also a seasoned public speaker, software developer, social media marketer, and businessman.

    Aditya’s Advice
    I had a conversation with someone the other day on a podcast and it was about a context for disempowerment. A context for disempowerment is the idea that I can't do something. The reality is that I believe human beings can achieve anything that they want, if they adapt to the situation. 
    They take the opportunities that are presented to them. It's important to identify where you're creating contexts of disempowerment in your life. I mean, it's something else and learning now that we're kind of working on that actively because our mission is to empower and if there's a context for disempowerment, then it's very challenging to be empowering.

    A Talk Rand Fishkin of SparkToro

    On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Rand Fishkin – Founder of SparkToro

    We talk about the following
    How he grew Moz from 7 to 134 people and was that the right thing to do.

    When Rand’s not working, he’s most likely to be in the company of his partner in marriage and (mostly petty) crime, author Geraldine DeRuiter. If you feed him great pasta or great whisky, he’ll give you the cheat code to rank #1 on Google.

    Rand’s Advice
    One of my big things that's proved valuable for me personally is if all the media and coverage and the environment you're swimming in and your peers around you are going in one direction. It can be really valuable to choose a different one. I'm a big believer in being the exception to the rule.

Was a guest on Jason’s podcast a few months ago. Jason asked insightful questions, was wonderfully organized, and supportive in helping spread the word about my startup. Thanks for all your hard work and keep it up!

If you want unfiltered and authentic business advice and info, look no further

The thing I like most about this podcast is that it doesn’t sound all scripted like many business podcasts do. The host does a great job of selecting a wide variety of guests on a wide variety of topics. It never gets old!
