Breaking Down Your Business | Small Business | Business Owners | Entrepreneurship | Leadership

What’s In This Episode:

How important is trust in your business day? If you didn't trust the folks you work with, would you really be able to get anything done? We need our colleagues to trust us to that work gets done. We need customers and clients to trust us so that they pay us for the stuff and things that we sell. Do we talk about trust enough? No, silly. Which is why Jill and Brad talk about the Top 5 Ways To Build Trust in this episode and they welcome Scott Beebe to the show. Listen in! »

Top 5 "Back-to-Basics" Practices You Need Now

 

What’s In This Episode:

What's something that's really basic but that's always worked for you? It could be as simple as following up with customers or clients. Maybe it's using proper grammar when you email potential partners. Or it could be that you pick up the phone and actually calling people. Jill and Brad talk about getting back to basics -- also the name of a Christina Aguilera album (COINCIDENCE? Yes.) -- and so naturally they go over the Top 5 Back To Basics Practices You Need Now in this episode. Jill also talks about something so newsworthy that there's a video to accompany this topic -- tune in for a great discussion! Listen in! »

Newsflash:

Jill brings up the epidemic of bad things happening to good people around the world. Watch Guy Winch's TED talk, Why We All Need To Practice Emotional First Aid, and listen in to Brad and Jill's conversation about our need to pay more attention to the kinds of problems that no one is talking but are turning up everywhere in the world, in business and beyond.
