    Company Culture

    Company Culture

    Creating and maintaining efficient high-level teams is a complicated task that involves multiple layers of operation to keep everyone feeling supported and able to operate at their best. Some components are perhaps obvious yet others may need an insider's perspective into how HR helps companies thrive.


    In this episode, we speak with Anna Bakunts, who is the owner, founder, and HR director at HR Lab. She is an expert in the areas of business compliance and workforce development.


    Tune in to this week’s episode of ValueVerse as Kawan and Anna talk about company culture, HR best practices, do’s and don’ts of hiring, and running an effective company.



    “Follow up with employers and I can guarantee you’ll stand out. You’ll think that everyone else is following up and you don’t have a chance, but as long as you follow up and have the proper credentials you’ll be surprised to find yourself as one of the top running candidates for your dream position.”

    Inner Strength

    Inner Strength

    In life, we all have dreams and goals that we set our minds to, but the thought of starting that venture, quitting what is comfortable, and spending countless hours preparing that dream can seem daunting to say the least. Our guest today shares his personal story on how he overcame that daunting task and gives tips on how you can too.


     


    In this episode, we speak with Jeff Mendelson, the host of the One Big Tip podcast. Jeff left his corporate job to start his own business and podcast service and I was pleased to sit down with him to help share his knowledge and experience with those seeking to enter the entrepreneurial arena.


     


    Tune in to this week’s episode of ValueVerse as Kawan and Jeff talk about utilizing your strengths and resources, leveraging gaps in the marketplace to your advantage, and the importance of social media marketing and SEO.


     


    “You can’t do everything yourself in your business. It is a much better use of your time and money to hire out someone for those specific needs that you have and focus on the most important tasks at hand.”

    Know Thyself

    Know Thyself

    When I was in my early twenties I was looking for a sense of purpose in life and who I wanted to be. It became hard when I didn't know where I was going and it seemed like everything that I did just wasn't working out.


    I couldn't figure out what it was that made me happy; I had no idea what my strengths were; and when it came to my career, there were so many doubts and insecurities about whether or not this was the right path for me. I found myself getting caught up in toxic relationships and feeling like something was always missing.


    “Mastering others is strength, mastering yourself is true power.” -Lao Tzu


    In order to find your strengths, the first step is to see the vision then take action. It becomes hard when you don't know where you're going and how you're going to do it.


    Invest in the classes, seminars, therapists, brand identity courses, and personality tests to find a blueprint of who you are, what you want, and decide the best strategy to move forward.


    This week's guest is Jeff Mendelson, the host of the One Big Tip podcast. Everyone has this one secret that no one tells. The one secret tactic, treasured app, or hard-learned process that is singularly responsible for allowing them to shine. Jeff left his corporate job to start his own business and podcast service.

    Learning From Failure

    Learning From Failure

     


    “I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times, I've been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." -Michael Jordan


     


    We all have ambitions, dreams, and aspirations. But the truth is, there are so many things that can get in our way of achieving our goals. One of these is the concept of failure. Everyone fails. There isn’t one person who hasn’t experienced it. It’s how we react and what we learn when it happens that matters.


     


    This week is about self-improvement. Tomorrow's guest is Alex Williamns, he started a podcast called Broken Bulbs and the tagline is “Success doesn't happen without 999 broken bulbs coming before the one, that single idea that works.”


     


    Alex started podcasting to become a better listener and as a means of improving himself. I was also lucky enough to be on the Broken Bulbs Podcast and it was a ton of fun.  I’ve failed a lot in my time: relationships, business, life you name it. Each time has been a learning lesson and each time I improved. What no one tells you about failure is that ultimately it gives you an edge on everyone.


     


    What's the best way to improve?


     


    You can:


    Read 10 pages a day of a topic you want to improve upon


    Find a mentor


    Learn a new skill


     


    Or you can gain experience by failing and doing. Attempt the things you’re afraid of. On the other side of fear and comfort are growth and improvement. In fact,


     


    “Good judgment comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgment.” -Dr. Kerr L White


     


    Go out and try something new and fail this week, write down what you learned. Now take those learning lessons and apply them when you try again. Thank you for listening to the valueverse podcast. Here’s to your success.
