Get Back In The Office! Which Side Are You On?
Apple employees are protesting against their latest remote work policy. As of September 5, 2022, all Apple employees are mandated to be in the office 3 days a week. As the in person vs. remote work debate continues, it's interesting to see massive companies establish policies that we may have never looked at if it wasn't for the pandemic's pressures towards remote work.

How To Sustain Your Game In Life & In Business // Alan Stein, Jr.
In this episode, I'm talking with Alan Stein, Jr. This episode is all about sustaining your game, both in business and in life.  Alan is an acclaimed basketball performance coach, having spent 15 years working with some of the highest performing athletes on the planet. I'm talking Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Steph Curry, Kobe Bryant, and as a huge basketball fan, I really enjoyed this episode. So five years ago, he pivoted from that experience in basketball to working with high performing business leaders and teams. And how they can utilize some of the same approaches that he saw these world class athletes using to raise their game and sustain their game. So he has written two books on those topics. Raise Your Game is the first book from 2019, Sustain Your Game came out in 2022. And we dig deep into what it takes to play at a high level in your business. So we talked about managing stress on a daily basis. We talked about how you can deal with the mediocrity or feeling like you're stagnating in the business, what to do about it, and then how to conquer burnout. So all of this is just his great lessons, great stories in basketball, translated into how they can impact you in life and in business. There were so many takeaways, so many gems and nuggets that I don't want to spoil at all in this intro. But just think like, if he was working with Kobe Bryant and asking him the secrets to life and the secrets to performance. If he was coaching a 15 year old Kevin Durant, who is now a multi hundred millionaire, multi gold medalist kind of athlete. What kind of takeaways might he have to share with you? Well, this episode is jam packed with those takeaways. So listen in and hear Alan Stein Jr's takes on life, on performance, on business, and a little bit on basketball. Enjoy!

Quiet Quitting DOES NOT Equal Work Life Balance

Embracing Change To Build A Better Business // Jason Feifer
In this episode, I'm talking with Jason Feifer. This episode's all about building for tomorrow and why embracing change is essential for growth in business or any area of your life. Jason's the editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Magazine and the author of the book Build for Tomorrow, which is in bookstores on Sept. 6th. He's also the host of two podcasts. One's called Build for Tomorrow as well, which is all about why modern concerns aren't actually that scary. Then he's got Problem Solvers, which is about unexpected problems that entrepreneurs are solving in their businesses. Prior to Entrepreneur, Jason worked as an editor at Men's Health, Fast Company, Maxim, and Boston magazine, and he's been writing about business and technology for years in Washington Post, Slate, New York, and others. I just love this conversation with Jason. He was a guest at Playbook, our annual event, back in 2020, when so much in the world was changing. He was just getting started with this book at the time, so we got to follow up 18 months later on what he's doing, how the world has changed and evolved, and his book, which is now out this week, so you'll get to hear a lot about change. Change is one of those topics that, as businesses, you deal with whether you want to or not. There's change of rolling out new policies and processes. There's new products that get rolled out. There's change for your customers. There's change for your employees, the market's changing, so how do you navigate that all? Well, Jason talks about his four step process and makes it very practical for you to go through. He also shows how you can use history to kind of calm your jets when you get nervous about things that are going on present day. So take a listen, I know you'll love this one.

My Thoughts on Malcolm Gladwell's Remote Work Criticism
In the recent weeks you've probably heard the uproar of comments on Malcolm Gladwell's criticism of remote work. I disagree with the majority of his statements, but I do however agree on one aspect. Business leaders inability to effectively communicate the advantages of being a remote or an in person company. And effectively communicating anything that needs to be implemented for that matter. Regardless if you are a remote or in person business, you have to clearly explain why it's the best scenario for your work culture. To me, it's a person by person and business by business decision. You can't make blanket statements.  Want in on the can't miss small business event of the year?! Playbook 2022, Sept 21st & 22nd. 100% Free. All virtual.

What % Of Your Business Should Be Focused On Now VS. Innovating For The Future?
What percentage of your people and resources should be spent on the now vs. innovating for the future of your business? It's a really important question to ask yourself, as the owner or CEO, along with your leadership team. I went through this exercise a few months back with the leadership team at Trainual.

Tackling Global Inequality With Remote Work // Tony Jamous, CEO Of Oyster
In this episode, I'm talking with Tony Jamous. This episode's all about the future of work and how remote, async work can help tackle global inequality.  Tony's the CEO and co-founder of a company called Oyster, which is a global employment platform that aims to remove the barriers of remote work and distributed hiring. Tony grew up in Lebanon, went through the civil war and developed this incredible worldly view where he believed that we should eliminate the bias of hiring across different countries. He did this in his last company, which he took public. And then he set out to build Oyster as a way to empower all of us to hire across country boundaries. So if you're growing a business and you've thought about tapping into this global workforce and finding people across the world to work for your business, but it just seems too daunting, the infrastructure, the taxes, the payroll, the setting up entities, the HR and compliance issues, that's why their company exists. So we get deep into remote work, which they've been for the last few years. We talk about growth while maintaining your employee wellness. They've grown from 50 to 600 people in the last couple of years. And we get into how COVID affected all of us in this remote world future that we live in. So this episode will dive deep in remote work. Find episode show notes, podcast blog recaps, and the best SMB news & tips on The Manual! Follow Chris Ronzio for more business insight.
