In the 200th  episode of her podcast, Lois talks with Heather Smith about a New Way to Tell Your Story-Now, and in the Future, Lois commented that “I appreciate Heather’s approach.  Many of us have tired of the hype and no result.  Focus on telling your story the way your audience will respond to and see your business grow.”

Episode highlights:

  • Why your story matters
  • The importance of connecting with others across generations
  • How to enable future generations to hear your story and learn from your experience

Heather Smith’s company StoryFile uses a unique conversational video technique to help you tell your story and let others — including future generations — interact with you just as if you were having a conversation. Find out why your story matters and how “video that talks back” enables you to connect across distances and even generations.

Published on July 1, 2022

Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share, the nation’s leading health care sharing ministry, is proud to be a Certified™ by Great Place to Work®

Christian Care Ministry/ Medi-Share, is proud to be Certified® by Great Place to Work® for the third year in a row. The prestigious award is based entirely on what current employees say about their experience working at Christian Care Ministry. This year, 81% of employees said it’s a great place to work.

Great Place to Work Institute has honored Christian Care Ministry with certification as a Great Place to Work. The certification process involved surveying 100% of employees from across Christian Care Ministry locations and evaluating more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning. Rankings are based on employees’ experiences, no matter who they are or what they do.

“We applaud Christian Care Ministry for seeking certification and publicly sharing its employees’ feedback,” said Dr. Jacquelyn Kung, of Great Place to Work’s senior care partner Activated Insights. “These ratings measure its capacity to earn its own employees’ trust and create a great workplace for high performance.”

“We are excited to become Great Place to Work-Certified® for the third year in a row as our employee culture and experience is a top priority every day,” said Christian Care Ministry/Medi-Share CEO Scott Reddig. “Our team of dedicated employees at Christian Care Ministry is not just the backbone, but the heart of our ministry. We celebrate and thank them for all they do every day for our members.”

Mr. Reddig continued, “As a ministry, I really appreciate that some of the highest scores we received were in the areas of feeling welcome and cared about, as well as the unique nature of working in an environment where prayer is a priority.” 

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.

“It was very encouraging to see that as we weathered and came through the pandemic and adapted to a hybrid workplace, our employees felt valued and appreciated. Our culture continues to grow more strongly positive, and I know that will help us attract quality employees now and, in the future,” explained Christian Care Ministry’s Chief People Officer, Tony Webster.

Charles “Walt” Wilson, Retirement Strategist, Interviewed on Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast Discussing Permanent Life Insurance Strategy for Stretching Retirement Funds

Charles “Walt” Wilson, Retirement Strategist, Interviewed on Influential Entrepreneurs Podcast Discussing Permanent Life Insurance Strategy for Stretching Retirement Funds

Published on July 1, 2022

Walt Wilson discusses the key elements that deplete retirement assets:

  • Taxation
  • Depreciation
  • Inflation
  • Government Regulation
  • Volatility

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network: https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/interview-with-charles-walt-wilson-retirement-strategist-discussing-permanent-life-insurance-strategy-for-stretching-your-retirement-funds/

Several strategies can be used to make retirement funds last longer. One such method is to use permanent life insurance to supplement income.

Permanent life insurance policies have a death benefit paid out to beneficiaries upon death. This death benefit can help cover expenses such as funeral costs and outstanding debts, or it can provide a financial cushion for your loved ones.

In addition to the death benefit, permanent life insurance policies also have a cash value component. This cash value grows tax-deferred and can be accessed via policy loans or withdrawals. The money withdrawn from the policy’s cash value is not subject to income tax. This makes permanent life insurance an attractive option for those looking for a way to supplement their retirement income. Policy loans can be used to cover expenses such as travel, healthcare costs, or even just day-to-day living expenses. When structured properly, a permanent life insurance policy can be a valuable tool for stretching retirement funds.

Walt explained, “How many opportunities have simply passed you by because you were not aware of them”? Awareness of these opportunities could be right in front of you. These opportunities are so critical to your financial future that I feel I have an obligation to discuss them with you. I would like to congratulate you on making some of the decisions you have made in your life. Your decisions were made on information that you had at the time. Today, if you were given more knowledge to re-evaluate some of your past decisions, would you? A conversation over the phone will help you understand current economic trends and shifts at this time.”

Brandon Stevens, Founder, and CEO of Scoutr, Interviewed on Inspired Business Leaders Podcast

Published on July 1, 2022

Brandon Stevens discusses how he helps companies build their teams through advanced recruiting methodologies.

Listen to the interview on the Business Innovators Radio Network:

https://businessinnovatorsradio.com/ep-2-interview-with-brandon-stevens-founder-and-ceo-of-scoutr-with-nick-bour-founder-of-inspire-wealth/

The traditional hiring process is no longer effective in today’s rapidly changing labor market. The application, resume, and recruiter-driven hiring processes are outdated and no longer produce the best results.

Organizations are now turning to a dynamic matching algorithm that introduces people analytics at the beginning of the application process. This new methodology shift is based on the premise that the best candidates are not necessarily the ones who submit the best applications or have the most impressive resumes. Instead, they are the ones who are the best match for the specific job opening.

By using people analytics, organizations can identify these ideal candidates and increase their chances of making a successful hire. In addition, this new process is more efficient and saves time and money by eliminating the need to screen hundreds or even thousands of applications.

Stevens explained that: “Scoutr represents a methodology shift from the outdated application, resume, and recruiter-driven hiring processes to a dynamic matching algorithm that introduces people analytics to the beginning of the application process. We provide a drastically improved candidate experience that empowers you to show the complete picture of yourself as a candidate. We give companies the data they need to make confident hiring decisions quickly while avoiding the wasted time, excess cost, and damage to employer branding that comes with traditional hiring methods. Nobody knows your company like you and your current team, so why trust anyone else to recruit for you? Let Scoutr give you the technology and expertise to amplify your employer brand and grow with an amazing team that drives brand positivity, fulfills your mission, and embraces your culture. An empowered team will bring in more customers and make your company more attractive to talent. This is the Future of Team and Work!”
