    Elena’s Advice
    While we are working remotely while our lives are being uprooted. Right now is finding ways that we can stay creative and grounded. One of the things that I'm doing every day as someone who does video is I'm creating  a short video piece every day. I've committed to every time that we are in quarantine, to create one short video piece a day. This isn't necessarily about work. It's just to provide moments of pause for myself and for others if it happens to strike them.

    Gary’s Advice
     I would say if you're a manager and a supervisor or supervisor. You want to really take a good look at reducing your risk of workplace violence. Look at that injustice factor, and focus on managing to engage with your employees. I can't emphasize that enough. So that would be my best bit of advice. Learn how to manage for engagement, and that instead of not doing certain things, I would say do that. It's going to put you on the right path to making your organization less likely to have workplace violence.

    With this coronavirus and also being stuck at home. This is actually a really good opportunity to get online. Maybe set up a side hustle. Finally get that website together. I think there's a lot of very good tools out there. I've written a quick article on that and  it's on my LinkedIn.

    Dave’s Advice
    I think we're living through interesting times. It's so easy to get wrapped up in the political theater or the coronavirus or things that are going on with us.  I would say look, the greatest value that you're going to create is to stay focused on your mission and on your great purpose in life. The wisdom that I want to share is that look, all things are possible. Keep the faith and work hard and you can change the world with what you're doing.  There's a great quote out there. “Never underestimate the power of a small group of people. In fact, it's the only thing that has ever changed the world.”

Great Entrepreneur for Entrepreneurs

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!

Mel19847727727 ,

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!
