It's a sobering statistic that about 78% of people stress about money. And it's no secret that the more of it you have, the more problems turn up. Many of the problems that occur take place at the relationship level. While most people would either meet with an accountant or a marriage counselor, today's guest realized, "why not both?"  Simi Mandelbaum is the Founder of PROSPR Financial Wellness, and she learned that -how- we view money, and the mindset set have, is vastly more important than what we do with it. When a family isn't in lockstep about what to do with finances, it definitely causes problems that take a blend of both psychology and finance to figure out. She takes her clients through the process to uncover the root of their stresses with money.  Her personal mantra is, "Live like no one else, so you can live like no one else," and she applies that every day with the people she serves. Find out more about Simi's endeavor at www.prospr.fit.

It wasn't that long ago that the idea of a "drone" wasn't even a thing. The closest thing we had was mini helicopters that, for 3 easy payments of $9.95, your kids could fly around the house for 15 minutes at a time. And now? Drones are everywhere. It's a stable enough technology that today's guest, Bronwyn Morgan, started a new business venture. Founder of Xeo Air, we talk about the capabilities that you can do with drone technology, and how they can drastically help with challenges in the telecom, energy, oil, gas, wind, geospatial and government sectors. Plus, they're still fun to fly around! Join us on today's episode and learn more about the tech behind the toys. Check out Xeo Air at xeoair.com for more info.

Culture. Some companies have a great one, and some don't. Some have employees who are die-hard fans that are fully on board, and some have employees that just show up to earn a paycheck. What makes the difference? It's a little metric we call: engagement. Today's guest is Tenice Wehmeyer, Chief Engagement Officer at Wehmeyer & Associates. In this episode we talk about what engagement is, and why it's important to make sure employees are engaged both inside and outside of work. When employees feel heard, feel safe and feel empowered, great things happen. But sometimes they don't, and that's where Tenice shines. Determining where the pain points are, and where leadership may be falling short, she and her team have a track record of creating company culture that helps people feel awesome about coming to work, and being fully present at home with their families. After this episode, if you'd like to contact Tenice, find her at wehmeyerassociates.com.

With a lifelong background in art, today's guest decided to take a different turn in her career, and start something that it appears very few people have thought of.

Ok, today's the day. We're gonna bust a myth. Particularly, the myth that says, 'Starting a business means you're going to make six figures right away.' If that were actually true, who wouldn't start their own thing? The problem, as Kristen Edens and I discuss today, is that there's often an unrealistic image portrayed by social media about what entrepreneurship is like. Both Kris and I shared a bit about our background, how we got started as business owners, and what it felt like for us. It's not all sunshine and rainbows, as they say, and it's definitely not for the faint of heart. If you feel the call to start your own thing, there are some great tips in this episode for you. After listening, if you realize that content marketing or copywriting is something you need help with, reach out to Kris on LinkedIn, or via her website at kristenedens.com.

Every once in awhile I meet someone who's started a business and it happened accidentally. Today's guest is Luca Ingianni, and he and I first met about a year ago after being introduced by another former podcast guest. Small world! In the time Luca and I have known each other, he's gone from being a solopreneur to working with 3 other professionals to create an elite DevOps training company. Off the air he told me, 'It's mostly about luck, and letting luck happen to you.' The world may tell you that you have to build a business a certain way or follow certain rules, but really, the only rule you may need is to trust your gut, and surround yourself with people who support and strengthen you. Find more about Luca at devopsteam.de, and at ingianni.eu.

It takes a special kind of chutzpah to start a business, and Tom Harris has definitely been bitten by the entrepreneurship bug. Starting off his career as a developer, he realized that he didn't want to work for a boss, and wanted to start his own thing. With a group of trusted co-founders, they set out to change a small part of the software development space: creating charts easily for project management software. While it may not seem sexy, project management is an important part of any software project, and being able to communicate results to higher-ups is even more so. As it turns out, the culture that Tom has helped build at Old Street Solutions is one that's poised to help their company be a powerful talent magnet. Fostering trust, enabling people to succeed, and let everyone tap into their Inner Maker's Mindset are the most important pillars to their company's growth. He said, 'Money is a side effect of success', and success to them is happy employees and happy customers. If you're ready to get your project management leveled up to where everybody can understand what's going on, Google Old Street Solutions or Custom Charts for Jira.

Today's guest didn't always consider herself an entrepreneur, but after realizing that her approach to business does uniquely solve problems no one else could, she adopted the term. Or at least, kinda. Robin Bennett is an experience content writer, sales and marketing expert, and calls herself a Proud Generalist. The Founder of Verse and Vibe, she helps companies take their content writing to the next level, and encourages straight shooting language. No fluff, no false rapport building and no beating around the bush. These days, direct communication with a clear next step is key when we're drowning in content.

If you've ever struggled with the idea of starting a business, wouldn't it be neat to have someone whose business is helping people do that? Well that's who we have on today. Jermane Cheathem is the founder of Creators Learn, and his philosophy behind starting a new business endeavor has some deep roots in how our minds work. Really it boils down to two categories: humans are either creators, or victims. And to get from one category to the other takes a lot of looking at what makes you scared of change, defining the risks and digging down into the root of why you're feeling that way. Finding your gift, letting it out, following your fear and asking why your motivations are the way they are are key to getting where you want in life. Entrepreneurship can definitely be scary, but listening to this podcast could get you a lot closer to your dream and true freedom, if that's what you're looking for. Find out more about Jermane at www.creatorslearn.com.

Today's guest was a very well respected and successful recruiter, making six figures and climbing his way up the corporate ladder. And one day he decided to start a business. He quickly went from making six figures to making... well, zero! 'Why would someone do that?' you might ask. Well entrepreneurs are just built different, and today's story with Arn Terry shows that living life with a focus on happiness, and not focusing on money will lead to some amazing opportunities. Sometimes you might think like he did, 'Why didn't I start this particular venture 10 years ago?' and realize later: you're right on time, right where you need to be. Life can be a struggle if you have a stranglehold on it. And life can be oppressing if you aren't looking around at the opportunities available to you. What might you be missing out on?

Does marketing seem like a huge chore for you? Welp you're not alone. I got the chance to talk with J.C. Granger today, a really chill dude, about how marketing's changed just in the past year. We've gone from marketing longer-term projects that have a much longer return on investment, to short-term offerings that get a quicker turnaround. Changing up the marketing message is key to that. But then, how do you get that message out to a lot more people, faster? The solution: a sprinkle of automation on our favorite social media platform, LinkedIn. I won't spoil the details about today's episode, but be prepared to pick up some excellent tips to polish up your own marketing message, and what you can say that will keep you top of mind with clients who are also struggling to figure things out.  Find out more about J.C. and Infinity Marketing Group below:  https://www.infinitymgroup.com/jc-granger/ https://www.linkedin.com/company/infinity-marketing-group/ And as always, enjoy the listen.  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/archdevops/support
You know how you might see some cutting edge technology on a show like Star Trek, and then 50 years later it's already mainstream? That's kinda what Justin Cullifer did with his company Glass House Guide. We've had voice activated computers for years now. And we've had the real estate space for a lot longer. But you mix together those two things with coronavirus and now there's a situatio where people aren't as keen about visiting houses for sale in person.

It's the perfect storm of challenges in today's world that have come to create this new approach that can change the face of real estate forever.

So what's true leadership all about? Is it just bossing people around or is it something deeper? Well if you're a fan of this show, you already know where my and my guests opinions lie on this matter, and that true leadership is so much more than just delegating tasks to whoever is available. What we haven't talked about much on The Hot Mic though is about how one becomes a leader. What's the catalyst? How does it begin? Today's guest is Ed Evarts, who is both the Founder and President of Excellius Leadership Development, and also a fellow podcast host for the podcast Be Brave At Work. And we have a really engaging conversation about what true leadership not only looks, but feels like. It's more squishy and human than you might think.

Hey, guys listen: I've got a secret. Come close I'm gonna whisper it: you can make money on the internet. Mind blowing, right? Some people treat e-commerce like it's some unattainable thing and that you have to have a huge business in order to sell things online. But when it comes to selling items on Amazon, it makes it much easier. I had the chance to talk with Ann Sieg, founder of the E-Commerce Business School, and multiple best selling author of books in the same genre, and talked with her about how literally anyone can get started making money on Amazon. All it takes is some ingenuity and understanding of how the market there works, which her program digs deep into educating people on. I got so excited on this episode that I'm going to bootleg this and give it to my wife so she can listen to it ahead of schedule. If you're looking for a new way to generate cash flow, this might just be a way for you to create some solid side income.

There's a lot going on these days. Protesting, rioting, law enforcement issues, adn general chaos. But where does mental health and medication fit in? We find out on today's episode with third-time guest Rev. Fred Shaw, who's had a fire to advocate for true mental health. Did you know that many medications make it difficult to get a clean read on peoples' personality, and can actually affect what law enforcement professionals do in response to a perceived threat? Did you know that the medical model that's been used to gauge mental health today has roots in racism? Did you know that even though our society is paying attention to mental health, that the problem isn't getting better, it's actually getting worse? It's a tough nut to crack, but the people at CCHR are actively working on this. If you find yourself struggling with things that normally would be taken care of with psychiatric treatment, please pay attention to this episode and reach out to Rev. Fred when you can. He always seeks to inform, and there's a lot that can be learned that can help you reclaim true mental health.

How do you feel when a salesperson calls just to check in with you. Or drops a "Hey just touching base to see where you are on the proposal?" Or leave a voicemail followed immediately by an email with the exact same verbiage? Well if you're anything like today's guest, you probably hate it. Jon Manley dislikes the standard milquetoast way that people approach sales SO MUCH that he decided to write a book about it called "Stop Touching Base". And indeed, the focus is on abandoning the corporate lingo word bingo that makes up majority of sales calls, and doing something that works a ton better: connecting with humans on a human level. Every call or email you do should give something to the customer, and leave them happier having talked to you. Check out today's episode, apply what you learn, and the sales will roll in.
