I admire them the most when it comes to innovation. Zoom has successfully managed to systematize the entire process, which has enabled individuals to boost their utilization of online meetings in order to continue their occupations from home even in the face of a pandemic. As more and more of us move toward working from home, this app has become an indispensable resource for remote workers.</p> <p>Thanks to Hannah Dworkin, <a href="https://usscrapyard.com/">USScrapYard</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#2- JetBlue</h2> <figure id="attachment_214324" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214324" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski.png"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214324" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski-150x150.png 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski-300x300.png 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski-1024x1024.png 1024w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski-768x768.png 768w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski-1536x1536.png 1536w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paul-Krasinski.png 2048w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214324" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Paul Krasinski</figcaption></figure> <p>JetBlue is a company that truly inspires me.

The company uses a social recruitment platform. Applicants can simply right-swipe job advertisements that fit their credentials; otherwise, they can swipe them to the left. When the Amazon recruitment team responds to an applicant, it is considered a match. They can get in touch using the platform's chat feature, where they can further discuss the job details and schedule a phone interview.</p> <p>Thanks to Adam Garcia, <a href="https://www.thestockdork.com/">The Stock Dork</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#5- Nike</h2> <figure id="attachment_214326" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214326" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Hussain-Almossawi.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214326" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Hussain-Almossawi-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214326" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Hussain Almossawi</figcaption></figure> <p>One of the most innovative companies I highly admire is Nike, having had the opportunity to work with Nike for many years on multiple projects, I quickly learned that Nike is not a sports company but an innovation company. The mindset towards creating new ideas truly stems from solid insights and consumer stories and needs, which pushes everyone in the company to listen to the voice of the athlete and push the limits of what has been done to enhance the consumer's experience.</p> <p>Thanks to Hussain Almossawi, <a href="https://mossawistudios.com/">Mossawi Studios</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#6- Apple</h2> <figure id="attachment_214327" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214327" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Scot-Armstrong.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214327" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Scot-Armstrong-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214327" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Scot Armstrong</figcaption></figure> <p>I absolutely admire Apple and what they’ve done in the business world and for our society.

Have you ever found yourself doing something that is totally different from what you wanted? If yes, it means you need to change your way of thinking, be more disciplined, frequently remind yourself of what you have to do and shift your perception of life in general. This gives you a break to reassess, reflect and get ready for change.</p> <p>Here are thoughts from different business owners and entrepreneurs on how they help themselves to think differently.</p> <h2>#1- Talk with new people</h2> <figure id="attachment_214292" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214292" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paige-Arnof-Fenn.jpg"><img class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214292" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paige-Arnof-Fenn-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paige-Arnof-Fenn-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Paige-Arnof-Fenn.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214292" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Paige Arnof Fenn</figcaption></figure> <p>To think differently you have to talk with new people, ask more questions, shake up your routine by reading different blogs, visiting new <a href="https://hear.ceoblognation.com/website" title="CEO Hacks - Website" class="pretty-link-keyword"rel="">websites</a>, listening to alternative music genres, eating other ethnic foods, shopping in different neighborhoods, listening to new <a href="https://hear.ceoblognation.com/podcast" title="CEO Hacks - Podcasting" class="pretty-link-keyword"rel="">podcasts</a>, and taking new routes home from activities. Basically, you have to open your mind and be exposed to a fresh perspective so you get the synapses firing and connect the dots in new and exciting ways.</p> <p>Thanks to Paige Arnof-Fenn, <a href="http://mavensandmoguls.com/">Mavens & Moguls</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#2-  Build a network of allies</h2> <figure id="attachment_214293" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214293" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Dave-Dennis.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214293" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Dave-Dennis-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214293" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Dave Dennis</figcaption></figure> <p>A core component of thinking differently for us is to build a network of allies within our industry that's willing to learn from each other. We serve a community of organizations, so we're benefited by having an ability to support challenges within specific organizations while also being given a high-level perspective of connected industry trends across several organizations This allows us to connect the dots and design resources to support multiple organizations simultaneously.</p> <p>Thanks to Dave Dennis, <a href="https://www.cornerstonesafetygroup.org/">Cornerstone Safety Group</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#3- Change your biases</h2> <figure id="attachment_214294" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214294" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/erin-lackore.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214294" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/erin-lackore-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214294" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Erin LaCkore</figcaption></figure> <p>While some focus on the bigger picture, others live for short-termed experiences. How-so-ever you may be, try thinking differently. And by that, I mean, change your biases, change your mindset and try imagining yourself as a different person altogether. When a person thinks differently, he is able to unleash and unwind into a very new world and can experience 1 life in a very diverse manner. To start this experience of yours, focus inwardly and first try to know yourself. Then delete the image of who you think you are.</p> <p>Thanks to  Erin LaCkore, <a href="https://lackorecouture.com/">LaCkore Couture</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#4- Engage in different hobbies</h2> <figure id="attachment_214295" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214295" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colin-Smith.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214295" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colin-Smith-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colin-Smith-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colin-Smith.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214295" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Colin Smith</figcaption></figure> <p>I like to engage in lots of disparate hobbies and cultivate new skills outside of work, like cooking, building and running a website, or playing music. For example, learning how to play guitar over the years has helped me realize that playing a particular chord sequence or riff may seem impossible at first, but once you can break it down into its individual components, it becomes much easier to master. I apply a similar approach when taking on complex projects that require a range of skills, disciplines, or time to complete.</p> <p>Thanks to Colin Smith, <a href="https://www.cpaexammaven.com/">CPA</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#5- Examine both sides of the situation</h2> <figure id="attachment_214296" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214296" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Randi-Levin.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214296" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Randi-Levin-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Randi-Levin-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Randi-Levin.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214296" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Randi Levin</figcaption></figure> <p>When I am faced with tough choices or feeling a bit stuck, I try to examine both sides of the situation and meet myself in the middle. What do I like about this idea or change? What feels right perhaps even fortunate about these circumstances? Then I look at the other side of the equation. Challenging myself to see both sides of a situation supports me in making better self-leadership choices based on shifting perspectives from what may seem impossible to what opportunities and next steps are actually possible.</p> <p>Thanks to Randi Levin, <a href="https://randilevincoaching.com/">Randi Levin Coaching</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#6- Surround me with people who think differently</h2> <figure id="attachment_214297" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214297" style="width: 146px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Mark-McShane.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214297" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Mark-McShane-146x150.jpg" alt="" width="146" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214297" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Mark McShane</figcaption></figure> <p>I think that the most important thing you can do to help yourself think differently is to surround yourself with people who think differently than you do. I've found that when I'm arguing with someone about an idea, it's usually because they're not seeing the same things in the world as me. If I want to find new ways of thinking, I need to be around people who see things differently than I do. I also try to keep my mind open and flexible.<br /> I think it's important to be able to see things from different perspectives.</p> <p>Thanks to Mark McShane, <a href="https://birminghamfirstaidcourses.co.uk/">Birmingham First Aid Courses</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#7- See challenges as opportunities</h2> <figure id="attachment_214298" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214298" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Adam-Van-Tassell.png"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214298" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Adam-Van-Tassell-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214298" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit; Adam Van Tassell</figcaption></figure> <p>Try to embrace and manage risk instead of avoiding it. This way, you are more likely to have opportunities exist for you. Also, see challenges as opportunities. Do not be constrained by the reality of the present &#8211; think of possibilities! Try to view competitors as opportunities to learn more about their industry and target market, instead of seeing them as a threat. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes. Mistakes are healthy when they are used as a tool to grow, and there are bound to be mistakes somewhere down the line!</p> <p>Thanks to Adam Van Tassell, <a href="http://birchforestlodge.com/">Birch Forest Lodge</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#8- Hiring someone with a different skill</h2> <figure id="attachment_214299" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214299" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn.png"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214299" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn-150x150.png 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn-300x300.png 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn-1024x1024.png 1024w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn-768x768.png 768w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Lovelia-Horn.png 1080w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214299" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Lovelia Horn</figcaption></figure> <p>One way to do this is by challenging yourself and others in your company. You can use new tools or methods of thinking. These can include: Hiring someone with a different skill set than your own. An example is if you're a creative person, look for an accountant or <a href="https://hear.ceoblognation.com/visibility" title="CEO Hacks - Marketing, Advertising &amp; PR" class="pretty-link-keyword"rel="">marketing</a> expert who can help you run your business more efficiently. Hiring people outside of the company who have different perspectives. Different perspectives have a way of bringing out creative and different ways of leadership.</p> <p>Thanks to Lovelia Horn, <a href="https://www.everycreaturecounts.org/">Every Creature Counts</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#9- Ask yourself multiple questions</h2> <figure id="attachment_214300" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214300" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Tomek-Mlodzki.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214300" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Tomek-Mlodzki-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Tomek-Mlodzki-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Tomek-Mlodzki.jpg 191w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214300" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit; Tomek Mlodzki</figcaption></figure> <p>Seeing reality according to several different points of view is crucial in today's competitive world. To be unique, innovative, and even more resilient, it is vital to have a collaborative approach and create a creative environment. One strategy for thinking differently is to ask yourself multiple questions. The questions and the search for answers open up so many different scenarios, allowing us to explore aspects never considered before.</p> <p>Thanks to Tomek Mlodzki, <a href="https://photoaid.com/">PhotoAiD</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#10- Consider alternatives</h2> <figure id="attachment_214301" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214301" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Ronen-Ben-Dror.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214301" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Ronen-Ben-Dror-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Ronen-Ben-Dror-150x150.jpeg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Ronen-Ben-Dror.jpeg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214301" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Ronen Ben-Dror</figcaption></figure> <p>One way to define thinking differently is to introduce fresh concepts in place of old ones. Your attitude, your neighborhood, or the entire planet may be challenged by these concepts. Start by posing questions that motivate you to learn more about the world around you and to approach problems in business in novel ways. Thoughts of negativity are normal for humans, but they shouldn't prevent you from achieving your goals. Instead, substitute reasonable expectations for your negative ideas.</p> <p>Thanks to Ronen Ben-Dror, <a href="https://www.bluevalleymarketing.com/">Blue Valley Marketing</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#11- Train your brain</h2> <figure id="attachment_214302" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214302" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jen-Wan.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214302" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jen-Wan-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jen-Wan-150x150.jpeg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jen-Wan-300x300.jpeg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jen-Wan.jpeg 400w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214302" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Jen Wan</figcaption></figure> <p>Paying attention to when harmful thoughts start to surface is one of the best methods to start teaching your brain new ways to think. You will suffer if you don't get enough sleep regularly since your brain won't have a chance to replace any old or damaged brain cells. It will be more difficult for you to assimilate information quickly, maintain emotional stability, and have the stamina needed to study.

In essence, as a CEO, you must constantly beat the drum of your vision as it guides the ship that is your business. Having a belief in my vision helps me think differently and gives my employees clarity and purpose, also bringing my customers with me on my business journey. In addition, I meet with my employees one-on-one to discuss goals and how they serve the vision I've laid out.</p> <p>Thanks to Sara Graves, <a href="https://ustitleloans.com/">USTitleLoans</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#14- Reframe your negative thinking</h2> <figure id="attachment_214305" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214305" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Raven-Cobb.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214305" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Raven-Cobb-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Raven-Cobb-150x150.jpeg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Raven-Cobb-300x300.jpeg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Raven-Cobb.jpeg 400w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214305" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Raven Cobb</figcaption></figure> <p>Exaggeratedly pessimistic ideas keep you from acting positively, and negative predictions frequently become self-fulfilling prophecies.

There are times when you need to be firm, clear, and independent, while there are other times you need to blend in with your team as a fellow colleague.</p> <p>Thanks to Simon Slade, <a href="https://www.salehoo.com/">SaleHoo</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#15- Empowering others</h2> <figure id="attachment_107004" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-107004" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/07/Joshua-Uebergang.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-107004" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/07/Joshua-Uebergang-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-107004" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Joshua Uebergang</figcaption></figure> <p>Leadership is as much about knowing when to step back and listen, as it is about stepping forward to speak and lead. To lead, you must be willing to put your ego aside and allow those around you to speak and have input. A skillful CEO will empower those around them to take ownership and leadership in whatever role they have. Empowered people make up an empowered organization. There are other times still that you need to blend into the background and become a fly on the wall.</p> <p>Thanks to Joshua Uebergang, <a href="https://www.digitaldarts.com.au/">Digital Darts</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#16- Problem-solving IAM1453 – Co-Founder and CMO Helps to Further Outsourcing and Insight Into How People Work https://iamceo.co/2022/08/05/iam1453-co-founder-and-cmo-helps-to-further-outsourcing-and-insight-into-how-people-work/ I AM CEO Podcast urn:uuid:28bf62aa-23e3-60d9-ec57-cac61b0e959f Fri, 05 Aug 2022 06:16:50 -0400 <p>Liam Martin is the co-founder and CMO of TimeDoctor.com, Staff.com and is a co-organizer of RunningRemote.com the largest conference on building remote teams.

This can give birth to new ideas and make you reinvent things.</p> <p>Thanks to Justin Marshall, <a href="https://desky.com.au/">Desky</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#11- Keep up with your due diligence</h2> <figure id="attachment_399531" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399531" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Deborah-Sweeney.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399531" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Deborah-Sweeney-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Deborah-Sweeney-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Deborah-Sweeney-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Deborah-Sweeney.jpg 500w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399531" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Deborah Sweeney</figcaption></figure> <p>My best tip for being disruptive is to keep up with your due diligence.

From the very beginning, Anna had a clear idea in her mind: to leave her mark on the world. As the show ends, we can see that Anna is still happy with how things turned out even though she got caught and punished for her actions. Still, her ambition and boldness are to be admired, and other big-time executives also recognized and gave her respect for that.</p> <p>Thanks to Harry Campbell, <a href="https://therideshareguy.com/">The Rideshare Guy</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#2- Trust someone only after doing your due diligence</h2> <figure id="attachment_214168" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214168" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jared-Stern.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214168" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Jared-Stern-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214168" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Jared Stern</figcaption></figure> <p>The main lesson that entrepreneurs can learn from Inventing Anna is to trust someone after doing your due diligence.

New platforms appear overnight and take the world by storm. Business owners, no matter their field, are kept on their toes when it comes to keeping up with modern consumers. Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and a host of other apps are where businesses need to be if they are trying to compete with a tech-savvy consumer base. We asked entrepreneurs and business owners about how they use social media for business and their replies are listed below. These tips might even help you find the right footing on social media for your business.</p> <h2>#1- To connect with potential and current customers</h2> <figure id="attachment_399484" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399484" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Catherine-vanVonno.png"><img class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399484" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Catherine-vanVonno-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399484" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Catherine vanVonno</figcaption></figure> <p>Social media <a href="https://rescue.ceoblognation.com/visibility" title="CEO Hacks - Marketing, Advertising &amp; PR" class="pretty-link-keyword"rel="">marketing</a> is a powerful way to connect with potential and current customers, as well as other businesses in your industry. When used correctly, social media can help you build relationships, drive traffic to your website, and generate leads and sales for your business. We have tried numerous campaigns to connect with clients from different parts of the world, and we have seen that our efforts have been successful in generating leads, sales, and even customers from organic reach.</p> <p>Thanks to Catherine vanVonno, <a href="https://20four7va.com/">20four7VA</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#2-  Manage customer expectations</h2> <figure id="attachment_399485" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399485" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Dave-McCurdy.png"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399485" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Dave-McCurdy-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Dave-McCurdy-150x150.png 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Dave-McCurdy.png 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399485" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Dave McCurdy</figcaption></figure> <p>Use social media to manage customer expectations. Just because your response time should be fast, it doesn’t necessarily mean you can fix all customer issues fast. Clearly explain to customers how long it will take to resolve their issues—even if it means revealing that you don’t know how long it will take instead of giving false promises. Provide self-service information resources for frequently asked questions. Make your social customer service hours of availability clear.</p> <p>Thanks to Dave McCurdy, <a href="https://ecodrivingusa.com/">Eco Driving USA</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#3- Look for potential talents</h2> <figure id="attachment_399486" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399486" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Adam-Garcia.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399486" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Adam-Garcia-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Adam-Garcia-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Adam-Garcia-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/07/Adam-Garcia.jpg 560w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399486" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Adam Garcia</figcaption></figure> <p>We use social media to look for potential talents willing to work in our company.

I think we are still in the early days of the metaverse and it is hard to predict exactly how it will unfold, but I am very excited to see how it all plays out.</p> <p>Thanks to Cody Arsenault, <a href="https://codyarsenault.com/">Cody Arsenault</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#9- Banking and Cannabis</h2> <figure id="attachment_214136" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214136" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/06/Ian-Kelly.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214136" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/06/Ian-Kelly-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/06/Ian-Kelly-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/06/Ian-Kelly.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214136" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Ian Kelly</figcaption></figure> <p>The banking and cannabis industries are ripe for disruption.

I find the easiest way to reconnect to my motives is to reconnect with customers- reach out and check in on how they are enjoying the products or services, engage with them on social media through your business' posts, and definitely get out of your office to see who is walking through your door to do business.</p> <p>Thanks to Sylvia Fountaine, <a href="https://www.feastingathome.com/">Feasting at Home</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#11- Measure your progress</h2> <figure id="attachment_212635" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-212635" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2021/12/Leonardo-Gomez.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-212635" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2021/12/Leonardo-Gomez-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2021/12/Leonardo-Gomez-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2021/12/Leonardo-Gomez-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2021/12/Leonardo-Gomez.jpg 400w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-212635" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Leonardo Gomez</figcaption></figure> <p>One of the biggest motivating factors for me has to be my progress. Not every day is perfect. However, every minor progress will ensure that I never look back with regret. If I lack motivation, I usually take out time to analyze the progress that has been made on that day and treat myself with something good to boost myself during my lows. On days when I am exhausted from work, simply appreciating the progress in my day creates a massive significance to my motivation levels. This has been my go-to driving factor for the past many years and the future as well.</p> <p>Thanks to Leonardo Gomez, <a href="https://tryrunball.com/">Try Runball</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#12- Meditation</h2> <figure id="attachment_214214" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-214214" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colton-Horn.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-214214" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colton-Horn-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colton-Horn-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/2/2022/07/Colton-Horn.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-214214" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Colton Horn</figcaption></figure> <p>Meditating has been one of the ultimate game-changer in my life as an entrepreneur.

The best way to get my mojo back is to put it all away and divert my focus for a few hours on a creative project or for a few days out of town. Having a phone at my side means the work is always there but I only tend to mission-critical issues. Setting everything aside, including my phone, lifts the immediate burdens and creates space for new ideas and inspiration. When I get back to work everything feels much more manageable and I am more motivated to get it all done.</p> <p>Thanks to Katherine Wells, <a href="https://amanobrooklyn.com/">A.MANO Brooklyn</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#15- Seeing people benefited</h2> <figure id="attachment IAM1436 – CEO Revolutionizes Leadership by Understanding Mental Health and Human Wellness https://healthyceo.co/2022/07/19/iam1436-ceo-revolutionizes-leadership-by-understanding-mental-health-and-human-wellness/ Healthy CEO urn:uuid:47babc6f-5e10-a08d-8eb3-1a6bc9583010 Tue, 19 Jul 2022 09:28:23 -0400 <p>Melissa Mellor is the CEO of Hey U Humana globally recognized mental health and human wellness company.

Of course, valuable lessons often come from doing. Business lessons can be learned by trial and error and by putting yourself out on the line. But the same lessons can also be had from a book. Reading about the errors and triumphs of other business leaders can prevent you from making mistakes and push you in the direction of success. Beyond lessons, a good business book can inspire you to lift your business to an even higher level. Below is a selection of business books chosen as favorites by entrepreneurs and business owners.</p> <h2>#1- The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth by Chris Brogan</h2> <figure id="attachment_106770" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-106770" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/SidSoil.png"><img class="size-thumbnail wp-image-106770" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/SidSoil-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/SidSoil-150x150.png 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/SidSoil.png 244w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-106770" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: SidSoil</figcaption></figure> <p>Initially, the title and cover art were the two things that drew me into reading this specific book. But after reading it, I liked this book for more than just its unique title and artwork. Written for those who don't quite fit into the mold of the typical business owner, this book taught me how to remain true to myself, think outside the basic entrepreneurial frameworks, and provide a viable business structure that sustains and supports my community.</p> <p>Thanks to SidSoil, <a href="https://docudavit.com/">Docudavit</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#2- Good to Great by Jim Collins</h2> <figure id="attachment_106771" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-106771" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/Andres-Zuleta-scaled.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-106771" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/Andres-Zuleta-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-106771" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Andres Zuleta</figcaption></figure> <p>My favorite business book is ‘Good to Great by Jim Collins. It’s a fun and fascinating read, based on intensive academic research. The main subjects of the book are large multinational corporations, but there are countless lessons for small business owners and entrepreneurs. It’s the only business book I return to over and over, and I found it especially useful in the early days of the pandemic when it felt particularly hard to make business plans given the extreme uncertainty at the time.</p> <p>Thanks to Andres Zuleta, <a href="http://henderson-pr.com/">Henderson Public Relations</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#3- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R.

Regardless of whether you plan to sell<br /> your business or not, building your business with the intention that you will sell it helps you operationalize, automate, and optimize everything you do. As a result, your team will be more efficient, <a href="https://teach.ceoblognation.com/productivity" title="CEO Hacks - Productivity" class="pretty-link-keyword"rel="">productive</a>, and happy. And, because of the systems and processes, your team will save time and thus have more time to work on tasks and projects that excite them and move the business forward rather than “busy work”.</p> <p>Thanks to Sarah Doody,<a href="https://brittneyllynn.com/"> Human Connection Agency</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2 class="wwUB2c PZPZlf" data-attrid="subtitle">#7- The Innovator's Dilemma by Clayton Christensen</h2> <div data-attrid="subtitle"> <figure id="attachment_106776" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-106776" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/DavidLee.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-106776" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/DavidLee-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/DavidLee-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/DavidLee-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/DavidLee.jpg 480w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-106776" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: David Lee</figcaption></figure> <p>One of my favorite business books is called The Innovator's Dilemma by Clayton Christensen. The book talks about how successful companies can get trapped in their success and end up losing out to new, more innovative competitors. Christensen calls this phenomenon the innovator's dilemma. I think the book is really interesting because it provides a framework for thinking about innovation and change within businesses. It's helped me to understand better why certain companies succeed and others fail.</p> <p>Thanks to David Lee, <a href="https://www.inyouths.com/">Inyouths LED Mirrors</a>!</p> </div> <hr /> <h2 data-attrid="subtitle">#8- Dare to Lead by Brené Brown</h2> <div data-attrid="subtitle"> <figure id="attachment_106777" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-106777" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/MilaGarcia.jpeg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-106777" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/MilaGarcia-150x150.jpeg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/MilaGarcia-150x150.jpeg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/MilaGarcia-300x300.jpeg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/MilaGarcia.jpeg 1024w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/8/2022/06/MilaGarcia-768x768.jpeg 768w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-106777" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Mila Garcia</figcaption></figure> <p>This is one of my favorite business books because Brené Brown does a fantastic job of explaining how great leadership is something that can be learned by effectively breaking down four key skills that all the best leaders and CEOs possess.

As a business leader, you have to build strong working relationships with each member of your team as opposed to instilling fear. Consider their feedback to show you value their input and work on communication within and between you and the team. It’s not easy but it’s workable.</p> <p>Here’s how entrepreneurs and business owners build effective teams.</p> <h2>#1- The team is the backbone of your company</h2> <figure id="attachment_399250" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399250" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Annette-Azan.jpg"><img class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399250" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Annette-Azan-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399250" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Annette Azan</figcaption></figure> <p>Your team is truly the backbone of your company and your most important asset. During my career in fashion and retail, I have found that it is so important to build a team that challenges you in your entrepreneurial journey. When I began hiring a team for Nuudii System, I quickly realized it’s not just about experience and education. You need to hire people that are passionate and driven, and willing to put their all into the company or idea you are building. Building the right team is crucial to the success of every company, so be thoughtful, choose carefully, and trust your instincts.</p> <p>Thanks to Annette Azan,<a href="https://nuudiisystem.com/"> Nuudii System</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#2- Employee advancement is an important step</h2> <figure id="attachment_399251" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399251" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Hannah-Dworkin.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399251" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Hannah-Dworkin-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Hannah-Dworkin-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Hannah-Dworkin.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399251" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Hannah Dworkin</figcaption></figure> <p>Employee advancement is an important step towards a successful business. It's a notable element of the recruitment of new candidates because CEOs must focus on the best candidates and make them feel empowered to accomplish their best work in support of a higher purpose. As a result, a CEO must establish a clear vision and demonstrate to staff how their contributions may help it. They should also put in place processes and systems to nurture employee talent.  After hiring, inform them of their positions and have faith in the ability to hire good employees based on their expertise and aptitude.</p> <p>Thanks to Hannah Dworkin, <a href="https://usscrapyard.com/">USScrapYard</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#3- Building a team is about more than work</h2> <figure id="attachment_399253" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399253" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Adam-Van-Tassell.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399253" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Adam-Van-Tassell-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Adam-Van-Tassell-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Adam-Van-Tassell-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Adam-Van-Tassell.jpg 401w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399253" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Adam Van Tassell</figcaption></figure> <p>I think far too many people forget that a work team should have a lot more in common than simply being employed by the same company. But the trick is to FIND those commonalities and celebrate them. No one wants to walk into a workplace that is dull, tired, cold, and lifeless without any personality. You can create group outings for the whole team too. There are many ways to make people feel that they share a bond that is beyond their jobs. You can create email chains that are not strictly about work but include movie recommendations, favorite restaurants, and more.</p> <p>Thanks to Adam Van Tassell, <a href="https://birchforestlodge.com/">Birch Forest Lodge</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#4- Consider hiring freelancers for some menial tasks</h2> <figure id="attachment_399129" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399129" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/05/Anjela-Mangrum.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399129" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/05/Anjela-Mangrum-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/05/Anjela-Mangrum-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/05/Anjela-Mangrum-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/05/Anjela-Mangrum.jpg 373w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399129" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Anjela Mangrum</figcaption></figure> <p>As the head of a recruiting firm, I think it's safe to say that deciding your need for more employees overnight and advertising multiple job openings at once can wreak havoc on your business. As a first step, consider hiring freelancers for some menial tasks that you understand but don't have the time for. Once you find people you would like to work with, offer them full-time positions. When you finally have some beginner experience managing employees, move on to hiring people for things you don't fully understand yourself. This will make your transition from solopreneur to boss as smooth as possible.</p> <p>Thanks to Anjela Mangrum, <a href="https://mangrumcareersolutions.com/">Mangrum Career Solutions</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#5- Look for talent who shares the same values</h2> <figure id="attachment_399255" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399255" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Catherine-vanVonno.png"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399255" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Catherine-vanVonno-150x150.png" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399255" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Catherine vanVonno</figcaption></figure> <p>Business owners must recognize potential areas of improvement and needed areas of expertise so that they can build the right team to achieve business goals. When you clearly understand what your company needs, you can start sourcing people with the right skill sets and experiences. Look for talent who shares the same values as your company and who would be a good cultural fit. Once you have identified potential candidates, take the time to read about their background to understand their weaknesses and competencies.</p> <p>Thanks to Catherine vanVonno, <a href="https://20four7va.com/">20Four7VA</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#6- Offer each other support and encouragement</h2> <figure id="attachment_399256" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399256" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Will-Cannon.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399256" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Will-Cannon-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" srcset="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Will-Cannon-150x150.jpg 150w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Will-Cannon-300x300.jpg 300w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Will-Cannon-768x768.jpg 768w, https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Will-Cannon.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399256" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Will Cannon</figcaption></figure> <p>Remember to provide words of encouragement to your coworkers during hectic moments at work. Be precise about what each individual excels at and give assistance if somebody is having difficulty. You may also motivate your coworkers to do the same for one another. When one individual, in particular, requires assistance, ask your team to volunteer to assist them. You may establish a more balanced team by hiring both introverts and extroverts. A balance of analytical and creative minds is also desirable.</p> <p>Thanks to Will Cannon,<a href="https://signaturely.com/"> Signaturely</a>!</p> <hr /> <h2>#7- Hire people with similar goals</h2> <figure id="attachment_399258" aria-describedby="caption-attachment-399258" style="width: 150px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Shawn-Munoz.jpg"><img loading="lazy" class="size-thumbnail wp-image-399258" src="https://storage.googleapis.com/stateless-ceoblognation-com/sites/3/2022/06/Shawn-Munoz-150x150.jpg" alt="" width="150" height="150" /></a><figcaption id="caption-attachment-399258" class="wp-caption-text">Photo Credit: Shawn Munoz</figcaption></figure> <p>Building the right team starts with hiring those with similar goals, values, and work culture as you. It’s almost impossible to build and scale a business of one, you need a team that acts as a reflection of your values and goals to help share the work. The more cohesive your team is at launch, the easier it will be to grow and maintain your company as it takes off.
