Passionate Tick Offs
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.
