Episode 76: Attracting the best talent for your Business
Carol Schultz is a talent equity and leadership coaching and advisory expert, and Founder/CEO at Vertical Elevation. Recognized for her proficiency in corporate leadership, Carol has spent nearly three decades helping executives gain clarity in their careers, creating a culture of performance for their teams, and making bold leadership moves. A firm believer in supporting executives to become more confident leaders, she has advised countless individuals and companies from Seed stage pre-IPOs to publicly traded companies. Over the past 30 years, she honed her industry expertise and formed an intrinsic understanding of successful recruiting processes. For many years the industry standard began with a strong resume. While an individual’s background is an element of recruitment, Carol believes the person behind that resume and their fit to company strategy and culture is the key building stone to company performance.Armed with this knowledge, she designed and launched Vertical Elevation, a fresh approach to an industry that truly needed a paradigm shift to a recruiting and hiring process that incorporates the executive management team’s core values and permeates every aspect of the hiring process.As an advisor to corporations Carol makes a stand for best practices to attract and retain the best and the brightest. In guiding individuals, she applies straightforward tools in taking their leadership skills and careers to the next level. Though the depth of Carol’s experience has been in the tech industry, her process is “industry-agnostic” and will work in a variety of industries.Taking corporations and executives to the top with cutting-edge strategies for building high-performing teams is what gets Carol up in the morning. It is her commitment to making a difference that has clients coming back for more.A St. Louis native, Carol moved to New Jersey following graduate school and settled there for 16 years. She relocated to Colorado in 2003. When she’s not running Vertical Elevation, she spends her free time riding her Rocky Mountain Horses, working hard in her garden, and enjoying all the outdoor activities that living in America’s playground offers. She’s a foster mom for Animal Rescue of the Rockies and is the parent of a rescued Australian Cattle Dog mix, and a small herd of rescued cats. Carol holds a BS degree from the University of Montana and an MS degree from the University of Michigan.LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/carolbschultz/Website: https://verticalelevation.com/SOCIAL: Twitter: https://twitter.com/iamdesmonddixon LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/campfire-capitalism/?viewAsMember=true Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Campfire-Capitalism-103501098870849 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/campfirecapitalism/ Support on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/campfirecapitalism

Episode 69: Travel photography and Point of view with Vasie Papadopoulos
From Vasie -Growing up in a first-generation Greek immigrant family in Canada, those terms never meant much as a child. My family did the occasional trip to Greece to see family and keep our heritage strong, but other than that, the means weren’t there to be a traveler of the world. I don’t think I ever flew on a plane the whole of my high school years. But I lived in a world of exploration and deep fascination of that around me. I had a singular obsession of reading every copy of my father’s monthly National Geographic magazines; a collection I still have today. I lived in the worlds of Jules Verne and Jacques Cousteau, looking at places on the world map and wondering what Machu Picchu or the Great Pyramids of Giza looked like up close. While nomadic travel didn’t figure into my early life much, the history of my family said otherwise. My great-grandparents were descendants of Asia Minor in Turkey. In 1922, they went from from Samsun, Turkey to a small village in Northern Greece, called Pentavriso. And then my grandparents and parents all left Greece for Canada. Within 3 generations, my family spanned 3 countries. It seems through circumstance and history I was meant to be a nomadic traveler. In 2008, I purchased my real first camera - a Canon Xsi. I had no formal training in photography, but decided to teach myself. Now, my photos can be seen on Getty Images and one of them was featured in a National Geographic Ted Talks publication in 2017 - which essentially will be the pinnacle of my photography. Podcast website:www.campfirecapitalism.comApple Podcast:https://apple.co/3IdEL7ASpotify Podcast:https://spoti.fi/3rlhkSYGoogle Podcast:https://bit.ly/3A8dlgyRSS:https://feeds.buzzsprout.com/1904686.rssSOCIAL:Twitter: https://twitter.com/iamdesmonddixonLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/campfire-capitalism/?viewAsMember=trueFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/Campfire-Capitalism-103501098870849Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/campfirecapitalism/Support on Patreon:https://www.patreon.com/campfirecapitalismSOCIAL: Twitter: https://twitter.com/iamdesmonddixon LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/campfire-capitalism/?viewAsMember=true Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Campfire-Capitalism-103501098870849 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/campfirecapitalism/ Support on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/campfirecapitalism
