For More Episodes Visit: www.podcast.scottdclary.com

As a self-made business mogul, Bobby Castro exemplifies the transformation from entrepreneur to leader. With only a ninth-grade education, Bobby founded Bankers Healthcare Group in 2001 with an investment of just $25,000. Today, he’s reached a net worth of $300 million. Bobby knows that above all, the key to scaling a business is leadership. As the leader of his company for more than 18 years Bobby instilled in his team a positive mental attitude (PMA), creating a workplace environment that inspired top-level performance and unheard of revenue returns.

Under Bobby’s leadership, BHG grew exponentially, from a valuation of $250 Million to $1 Billion, a whopping 400% increase. Now, Bobby is venturing into a new chapter to work with business owners and entrepreneurs seeking to duplicate the success he’s earned from hands-on experience by transforming into positive leaders. Having achieved financial freedom on his own terms, Bobby wants to teach others how to scale their businesses so they too can achieve unprecedented results.

In addition to growing the value of his company beyond belief, Bobby has created a community of happy, loyal employees and has been awarded nationally for that rare accomplishment. He was the recipient of the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2012, led BHG to be included on the Inc. 500/5000 list 13 times, and has been recognized by Fortune, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Hispanic 500, Crain’s and more. He was a keynote speaker at 10X, and has been featured numerous times in the WallStreet Journal, Bloomberg, Smart Business Magazine and CNBC, among others.

BLOG: Why Some People Work On Their Holidays

One of my employees went on vacation. She took a well deserved week off work. The first Monday afternoon into her vacation I saw her reply to a customer email. On Tuesday, they replied to one of my emails from the week before and sent me a message on slack. I knew how hard she had been working for several months, and didn’t understand why she was still trying to keep up with things at work, that really weren’t that important.

Although I didn’t want to disturb her, I sent her a message.

“Thanks for the note, but that can wait until next week when you’re back. I appreciate it, but I want you to come back rested — I’ll give you a as much time next week just to catch up if you promise to shut off now.”

She responded back.

“Thank you.. It’s hard to shut off. Appreciate it. Speak soon.”

I didn’t hear from her until the week following. Noticeably, more productive, rested and energetic.

I couldn’t have been happier.

As managers, sometimes we don’t realize the role we hold or the influence we can have over an employee.

Always be there for your employees. Especially when it comes to helping them know that it’s OK to shut off every once in a while.

INTERVIEW: Mohan Embar, CEO of PolyTripper | Top 1% Polyglot (8 Languages) & Entrepreneur | SSP Interview

For More Episodes Visit: www.podcast.scottdclary.com

Mohan Embar is a polyglot and software engineer who’s out to destroy the myths that are holding us back from one of the most low-effort, high-impact things we can do as an entrepreneur: learn a foreign language.

He not only speaks eight languages himself, which puts him in the top less than 1% of all polyglots, but he’s also cofounded a company called PolyTripper which connects language teachers to language students. What started as an a-ha experience while reading the back of a can of cocoa during his first trip to India when he was six years old turned into a lifelong obsession for learning languages and showing others how easy it is. Mohan has lived, worked and studied in several European countries and is out to share his discovery and passion for what he calls Linguistic Narnia to anyone who’ll listen.

It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently. — Warren Buffett

Building a REPUTATION takes time to build.

Destroying it, can happen instantly.

In 2011 JCPenney hired Ron Johnson to overhaul their entire retail strategy. The 109 year old retail giant changed everything.

– Products
– Advertisements
– Sales
– Promotions

The largest customer base (middle class moms) was shocked.

The brands they’d known and loved disappeared.

JCPenny lost its titanic grip on the market, losing billions of dollars in revenue and the trust and loyalty of their customers.

Just because a certain tactic made one organization or person incredibly successful, doesn’t mean it will work for you.

JCPenney should’ve stuck with the image and reputation they had taken more than 100 years to build.

As of July 1st, 2020 – JCPenney was 45 days into its Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

The future of the retail giant is unknown.

The Long Game Always Wins

Modern society is addicted to faster, better, quicker.

This delivers a quick dopamine response.

Dopamine is a happy hormone, it makes you feel good.

An example of this is when you “like” a post on social media, regarding a newsworthy event or human rights campaign.

You feel as though you accomplished something meaningful, and you feel good about yourself.

Serotonin & oxytocin are other happy hormones.

Serotonin flows when you feel significant or important.

Oxytocin is the glue that binds together healthy relationships.

To trigger serotonin or oxytocin you have to build relationships, put in actual work, do something significant, exercise and relationship building also work.

To trigger dopamine, you can like a post on Facebook or shoot up heroin.

Fast is good, in some cases.

This isn’t one of them.

Whether it’s your contribution to society or your physical health.

There are no shortcuts.

Continued sustained effort over time will lead to desired results.

Politics, Social Justice, Business, Entrepreneurship, Healthy Lifestyle, Relationships.

The long game always wins.

Microsoft Productivity Hack #5

One of the most difficult parts of our current WFH environment is the amount of distractions at home. For my 5th & final productivity hack as a #MicrosoftPartner, I wanted to share 4 things I’ve incorporated into my daily routine over the past few months to stay focused and productive while WFH.

Productivity Hack #5 👇

1. Get dressed — When I wake up in pajamas, I’m in a relaxed mindset. Throwing on pants and a dress shirt gets me in the zone, puts me in the right mindset and prepares me for the day.

2. Turn off your phone — I silence my phone for periods of time while working on things that require extra focus and limited distraction, such as contract reviews, strategy sessions and one-on-ones with employees.

3. Limit email checks — I only check my emails 3x per day. It’s incredible how productive I become when I don’t get distracted every time a notification goes off.

4. Dedicated workspace — Create a dedicated workspace in your home that you can commit to working in. When I’m WFH, the divide between work and personal time is blurred. When I’m in my dedicated workspace I’m working & if I leave that space — I shut off.

Fostering Connections Between Remote Teams

If you’re one of the many employees or businesses settling into the new norm of working remotely, you’re probably noticing a shift in how your remote teams communicate and connect. While working remotely can bring on many advantages such as more flexibility, less commute time, and better work-life balance, it also comes with certain challenges.

Challenges to working remotely

Creating connections between remote team members becomes increasingly difficult when employees are working in different places. They can be left feeling isolated or disconnected from the group without consistent efforts for connection. And they may have trouble with important communication because of it.

Not being able to see facial expressions or body language can also create a major disconnect in the ability to communicate effectively. These actions are a huge factor in how we communicate. Without them, true understanding of one another can get lost.

In order for your business to persevere, you will first need to persevere as a group.

Creating or maintaining connections between remote teams on a more personal level can help you to build a sense of community and team spirit — even from afar.

How to foster connections in remote teams

There are a few great ways to foster the important connection between remote teams and consistently remind them that you’re all in this together.

Shared Calendars

A shared calendar is a great way to inform others of what you have going on in your day. It lets them know when they might be able to speak with you should they need to.

Encourage employees to check in on each other and make time for conversations that aren’t related to work. By having access to each other’s calendars, remote teams are able to make these ‘water cooler moments’ spontaneous but convenient at the same time. Striking up a casual conversation with a team member is a great way to stay connected, but in a more natural way.

Use Video on Calls

Sometimes it’s easier to take a call from somewhere like the comfort of your own bed without your video on. While it’s great to be comfortable while working, having your video on during a conversation is an important part of communication for remote teams

The ability to see facial expressions and body language can add a lot to how you understand and interpret what someone is saying. It can improve your experience within a conversation and help you to feel a lot more connected.

Video calls can be somewhat awkward to start off. But they get a lot more comfortable over time as employees participate.

Encourage your employees to turn on their video and interact with one another.

Keep up with Regular Communication

Set meetings on a daily, weekly or monthly basis in order to keep up with regular team communication. While the consistency of your meetings and the subject matter discussed within them will vary, this time can be used in a number of ways to be effective.

Inform employees of happenings within the company and open up the floor for them to provide updates on what they are working on. This time could also serve as an opportunity for collaboration between team members, and help them to further develop connections between one another. A shared goal can bring on a lot of excitement and pride.

Let employees know that this is their time to share and interact with one another in terms of their work.

By the way, a great way to encourage communication within your team is with Q&A sessions. Here are our tips for effective employee Q&As to help you get better feedback.

Set up a Space for Non-Work-Related Conversations

Whether it be Slack, Microsoft Teams, or Skype, employees will appreciate having a space where they can talk to coworkers with a more casual approach.

Set up ice breaker questions like, “have you ever met anyone famous?” or “What was your first job?” These types of questions are more likely to stimulate conversation in remote teams and keep it flowing.

The typical question — “How was your weekend?” is more likely to bring your conversation to a dull end.

You might also want to set up specific channels in order for team members to share and relate to one another. One for pet photos, favorite jams, or the best spots for foodies, is bound to get the conversation going and help with making those important connections.

Fostering connections in remote teams is just one aspect of managing them.Click here for our other top tips for managing remote teams.

Schedule Activities for Remote Teams

Even though regular team activities like competitive bowling or team happy hour at the spot around the corner can’t happen in person, it’s still possible to put together team activities virtually. These activities can help remote teams get their minds off work while making some great connections with one another.

A scheduled virtual happy hour is a great way for team members to take a load off. At the same time, it helps build personal connections. Chat about your personal lives or set up a ‘drink of the week’ to discuss each other’s choices.

You could also plan activities like trivia, scavenger hunts, bingo, or even a team fitness challenge. The right activities will depend on your team, so be sure to pay attention to different personalities and their preferences. These genuine interactions will go a long way.

The adjustment to remote work life isn’t easy and creating a positive work culture for your team can take time. Look for opportunities to engage your remote teams and be sure to listen and respond to their needs.

The best type of remote team is one that is continuously open and encourages positivity in its culture.

SSP Interview: Carson Rowland, Actor & Musician | Navigating Success, Family, Culture & Life | SSP Interview

For More Episodes Visit: www.podcast.scottdclary.com

For Carson Rowland, acting has been a serious passion for as long has he can remember. After years on stage pursuing musical theater, Carson made his way into the film and TV arena by landing the role of Riley Sturgis in the TV series, Tweet: The Series, in 2015 for 5 episodes. Not long after, he booked the series regular role of Cole Reyes, in the Nickelodeon TV series, I Am Frankie. Carson has a BS in Neuroscience from Florida Atlantic University.

Growing up in Florida, Carson’s parents chose to homeschool their four children, which included an older brother, twin sister and younger sister. As a youngster, Carson went to a musical theatre class and was immediately hooked. “I knew right away I liked it. I was really focused on music from about age eight, starting piano lessons, then guitar. I wasn’t working toward any goal, I just really enjoyed it.” Although he claims neither of his parents have any artistic leanings, he and his siblings all excel in the arts. His brother Connor is a gifted piano player who often works with Carson on music, and both his twin sister Carolynn and youngest sister Catherine are accomplished ballerinas who left home in their teens to study their craft.

When Carson was 16, he heard from a girl he had homeschooled with who was starring in a web series called TWEET. The show was looking to fill a role for the second season and she suggested he audition. He booked the role of “Riley Sturgis,” which resulted in several auditions with Nickelodeon, eventually landing him one of the leads in Nick’s first global series, I AM FRANKIE. After Carson finished filming the second season of I AM FRANKIE, he got a part in the Lifetime movie DREAM KILLER as “Bailey,” the love interest of lead character “Mia,” played by Taylor Castro, herself an actor-musician. The two hit it off immediately. “Taylor and I became close friends, we just really connected. She had written a song called “Don’t Know What to Say” and invited me to re-record it with her as a duet.” Fans fully embraced both song and video, and the chemistry between the two.

The pair soon found themselves in Georgia — Carson filming the upcoming Netflix series SWEET MAGNOLIAS and Taylor at the Savannah College of Art and Design — and writing music together. “Writing songs with Taylor is the greatest thing ever. We have a synergy when we write together and I think our work together is pretty unique.”

When he isn’t recording and writing new songs, or guest starring on the hit ABC TV series American Housewife as a football player with a secret, Carson can be found keeping his 4.0 grade point average intact as he finishes his degree in Neuroscience. “Since 2016, my career has taken off, so why not pursue what I love? But I need a plan B no matter what; if one day, I need a change, the option to go in to medicine will be there. I have a huge sense of pride in what I’ve accomplished so far, balancing my career with schooling, and I am just going to go wherever the road takes me.”
