2 People 1 Message… Passion

We’re mixing things up a bit this week. I have spoken to hundreds of small business owners and entrepreneurs over the past 18 months, all of whom have interesting stories and nuggets of gold to share. Occasionally though I speak with people whose stories don’t quite “fit in” to the regular kind of small business topics we tackle week to week. Sometimes they are working within an industry or niche that doesn’t directly impact small business, but their stores are still filled with inspiration and passion.

 

Today I introduce you to two such guests.

 

Tamar Krebs is the founder of Group Homes Australia. Her entire ethos is ‘doing dementia differently’ and her backstory of growing up in New York with her Great Grandfather moulded her journey towards creating the model she was to go on to create. Tamar is a big advocate for assisting the elderly to live with dignity and respect, and her story is one that is sure to inspire. She single handedly raised the capital needed to get Group Homes Australia off the ground and has since built 7 houses around NSW with expansion of the model planned throughout Australia.

 

My other guest, Ben Newsome is equally inspiring. Winner of a Winston Churchill Fellowship award Ben’s love of science started when he was 7 running round is backyard with vinegar and bi carb. He bounced from being an undergrad scieve student to bush regeneration from there he retrained as a science teacher before working for the CSIRO. These days he is infecting kids with a love of science with his Fizzics Education business. Not satisfied with reaching tens of thousands of kids, Ben has consistently ‘levelled up’ to innovate and reach over 250,000 kids and growing.

 

A big thanks to this week’s guests

It’s all about the people… Part 2

There is no denying people management is a big topic for any business owner. In part 2 of our “All about the people” we identify what a 2%er might look like in your business, how to sniff them out and what to do with them once you’ve identified them. My guests also discuss the real benefits small business offer their teams, along with some great ways to offer reward and recognition to your team along the way.

 

We talk about the differences in managing remote or virtual teams compared with people who share a physical office space with you and our guests share their own learnings and experiences in managing teams of people.

 

If you have a team or you’re thinking that one day you’d like to have a team of people then you need to listen in to what the guests share on this week’s episode.

It’s all about the people

As a business owner managing your team can be one of the biggest challenges facing you. When to put staff on, who to put on and how to manage their performance is not something that comes naturally to a lot of small business owners.

 

This week in the first of a two part episode I chat with HR experts to get their advice and feedback on how to best deal with staffing issues. We talk about setting your business up with the 98% of great staff in mind. How important the recruitment process really is for your business and hiring on fit, training for skill. We also get into the murky waters of how to handle conflict if it arises within your team.

Time to release the media

If you want to play in the mainstream media pool you have to play by the journalists rules, and that means knowing how to approach the media and how to write a press release.

 

Following on from last week’s episode in which we discovered all the reasons you need to be generating publicity for your own business. This week the guests give you all the gold on how to approach the media, and format your press releases.

 

From our Headline Hunter Tanya Targett who explains the need to follow up with any journalist and Sharon Bolt from Get Free Publicity Today shares her free press release template. Annette Densham the Publicity Genie talks about how when starting out it is always easier to approach the local media. While Liz Campbell the Word Stylist gives the lowdown on the inverted pyramid and how journalists like to see information delivered.

 

If you have ever wanted to know how you should approach the media or how to write a press release then this is the episode for you.
