The Smooth Operator Podcast is one operator's take on business, personal life and entrepreneurship. The average business owner's professional and personal lives are so closely intertwined that they must pay attention to the little details that separate them from the average. Hey my Name is Alyson Caffrey... I sit (and have sat) in the COO seat for several six and seven-figure businesses. Follow along with me while we dive into what separates average business owners from the amazing ones and what that means for you in your daily life.
Today I sit down with the amazing Karan Nijhawan! Karan is the founder of JUBE, which stands for Just Be yourself. In a world that's more connected than ever, Karan has noticed that people are more disconnected than ever. In order to combat social isolation and banishing the feeling of being lonely, Karan curates experiences that empower human connection and real, meaningful conversations. He serves individuals that are creating live experiences that want to connect with their audience on a deeper level. He also runs a private, invite only intimate community of entrepreneurs called The Giving Circle.
