Ep 103 - How to Hire and Manage Remote teams Effectively with Limor Bergman Gross
Limor is a woman that has gone  to great heights in the male dominated tech industry. She has since been working to help women in tech figure out their goals, figure out the barriers and chart a direction that will give them the recognition that they deserve. She also gave us insights into the things needed to do when choosing a remote talent that would make the work easier. About Limor Hi, my name is Limor. I have been a mentor for women in tech for over five years and a former director of engineering. For over 20 years, I worked in tech as an engineer, manager, and director of engineering. I was always passionate about supporting women in tech. I know firsthand how it is like being a woman in a male-dominant field and all the challenges women face in the tech industry. Two years ago, upon my return to Israel after nine years in the US, I decided to follow my calling and support women's career growth. Women I work with tell me that working with me enabled them to continuously tear down "ceilings" by challenging them to think bigger. They also say that I opened their eyes to an entirely new way of contributing to their careers. Women I work with can achieve the goals and more in 1/3 of the time they thought it would take them. Do you want to break your glass ceiling? Work with me! I am now working with individuals and organizations that support women's career growth in the tech industry.

Ep 94 - The Value of Customer Experience for Business Longevity with Alex Oliviera
Why do you think presents are wrapped with bows and packaged with cards? It’s all for the experience of the products.  Over 5 million businesses were launched in America last year, yet, research has shown that 86% of businesses will fail after 5 years. Aside from the demand for products, a significant reason for that is poor customer experience. Alex explains how we need to come to terms with algorithms of the digital age: visibility and customer referrals through great customer experiences. He advises business owners to think through their past customer experiences and analyze how it was packaged to make us feel happy to pay for the service. He mentions how slowing down with creation or delivery allows us to give the best results.  Finally, he emphasizes how the cost of acquiring new customers is way higher than keeping them. About Alex As a transformative leader of multiple successful companies, Brazilian-born Alex Oliveira has helped companies advance their brands by executing interactive marketing campaigns for over 12 years. From SMB's to Fortune 500 brands like Ford & Allstate, Alex enjoys a diverse portfolio of clients.

Gael Wood is a successful entrepreneur with a business that helps people optimize their schedules by using success strategies, especially those involving habits.

EP 75 - Using Challenges as Building Blocks with Simone Giangiordano
Simone Giangiordano has battled with health challenges all her life and has still remained at the top of her game in her different ventures. After two decades, she quit her corporate job because of the negative effect on her health and decided to begin her entrepreneurship journey and work from home. But she realized that the poor habits she had while working in her corporate job continued to impede the growth of her personal businesses. Simone is our guest on today’s show and discusses the importance of taking care of the three core areas of our lives: mind, body, and spirit, and how the alignment of these areas can affect our businesses.  She shares tips on achieving alignment in the three areas, identifying and understanding your peculiar challenges, and practical strategies for dealing with them. She also shares personal business tips on enhancing overall wellness, such as how to build your business around your challenges, client management, necessary boundaries for your business, and other tips for building businesses with a solid structure that aligns with who you are, your needs, and the lifestyle you desire. About Simone Simone Giangiordano, better known as Simone G, is a lifestyle and business coach. An encourager. A lover of the ocean. She believes the courage to say “I CAN’T” will set you free.   Simone brings hope to those with invisible health challenges impacting the quality of their life and their business success. She gives voice to the idea that societal and cultural norms are far more limiting that any limitation we have, and that by sharing compassion, we can overcome many of the misconceptions and much of the stigma around chronic health challenges. Simone’s transition from her corporate career of nearly two decades to entrepreneurship was the direct result of her health challenges. As she figured out how to manage a business alongside several illnesses and injuries, she shut down her first business three times in the first five years of her entrepreneurial career. It was during these years that saying “I CAN” nearly broke her. Thankfully, the last shutdown was back in 2012! In caregiving for her father, she learned what matters most is the impact we have and the love we share. That experience gave her the courage to be silent no more and to author the Building Balance to Empower programs, which were created to guide others struggling with compromised health in building a business and creating a lifestyle that supports their work and well-being. Today, she uses her Signature Program The Power of I Can’t® alongside her business coaching to help her clients transform their lives, their businesses, and their well-being.

Ep 74 - How to Land Your Dream Job in 12 Weeks With Super Julie
In this episode, SJ talks with us about her proven recipe to help anyone land their dream job within 12 weeks. She discusses tools for getting your job search strategy right and how she has been able to help 90 to 95% of her client secure remote jobs. She also shares tips on how and why you should create a comfortable atmosphere during the interview that fosters engaging conversations that help the interviewer fall in love with you. She also shares a few personal strategies to easily navigate job offers, salary expectations in an interview, and eventually negotiate for better pay. She walks us through how to lead interviewers to the conclusions you desire and leave room for and navigate multiple job offers simultaneously. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we end up not getting the job. SJ discusses why this happens and how to bounce back from such rejection. About SJ At the age of 16, I tested for a learning disability, and lo and behold; I had a fabulous combo platter of auditory processing disorder and dyslexia. I had spent the previous ten years learning how to verbally communicate and solve problems while delegating my most challenging tasks. I did all of this unknowingly and was getting schooled on how to be a leader. As a young adult, I quickly rose in corporate jobs leading creative teams for Victoria’s Secret, MTV, Nike, Estee Lauder, and Carter's Childrenswear. I never felt like I fit in; I was ashamed of my learning disability; it was a secret that I wouldn’t share with others. I knew how to get a high-level position without having a Master’s degree, how to charm my way by developing relationships, negotiating the offer, and, regardless of my hurdles, lead with confidence. I created the recipe for getting the salary that I deserved. Today, I’m an entrepreneur, and our company helps people get the career and salary they deserve regardless of their challenges. We work with Veterans, stay-at-home parents, immigrants, folks from the LGBTQIA community, and folks with addictions or alcoholism. We have helped formerly incarcerated individuals, people who have lost their passion for what they do, people with disabilities - learning, physical or psychiatric; we are the people who help take fear and formality out of the career. We’ve helped over 16,000 people get the job they deserve. Links Website - superpurposes.com LinkedIn - linkedin.com/in/super-julie-braun

Ep 14 - Five Ways to Promote a Work From Home Business
While recording, I named this episode five ways to start a work from home business but ended up talking about five ways to promote a work from home business. This episode will be a great resource for people who are selling at a small scale and have not figured out how to scale their business because they feel they don't have a shop to sell from. You can use the golden tips that I shared here to promote your business and get new people buying from you. As I mentioned, today, August 10th, is my wedding anniversary and you can tell that I am super excited but I still have to make content for my listeners.
