Show Notes

09/04/2018  | 82 Minutes

This week’s guest: Ben, Dalton and Lib – We take a break from our regular guest routine and pinpoint certain tick offs we individually have. Although negative, these tick offs come from a good place. We dissect what normally is a negative and pesky outlook; and try to convince one another to see the glass half full.

DALTON'S PASSIONATE TICK OFF:

The lack of balance between employers, schools, and employee / student.
 

  • Dalton has 1 year left in school but is already working in his field with a future in his current position.
     

  • Education has its perks – it’s something that sets you apart, allows you to gain valuable experiences and a network, and affords great social experiences.
     

  • Companies are no longer requiring college degrees in some instances
     

  • Read “Work Rules!” By Laszlo Bock
     

  • Each party has a responsibility to adjust expectations and facilitate flexibility in a person's life.

LIB'S PASSIONATE TICK OFF:

The things that make you tick are not the things that make me tick.
 

  • A CEO needs to understand that they will always have the most passion when it comes to THEIR business. Employees want to put that passion into their own goals.
     

  • Don’t hold people to the standard of your tick. Be understanding and know that we’re all different.
     

  • I want to run my own business and show I understand the difference between passion and a job.
     

  • The most important job of a CEO is people.

BEN'S PASSIONATE TICK OFF:

Let's make instagram great again! Family-based social media accounts.

  • You follow friends to keep up with their lives and see what they are doing. Once a baby comes into the picture, you’re not sure if your friend exists because all you see are pictures of the kid!
     

  • Your social media helps keep up with you even though it’s a “lazy” way to maintain the friendship.
     

  • Combined couple Facebook accounts aren’t great either.
     

  • Suggestion from Ben – you can always make a new account for your business, children, etc. Keep your account as YOU.
