Happy 4th of July everyone!

As “Central Ohio’s Lakefront Specialist”, Chris could frequently be found ‘boating’ clients around the lake. With the help of her dedicated team of professionals, she soon expanded her Brokerage across the entire state of Ohio.

107. Why Appreciation is a Necessity, Not a Nicety—Diana Rogers Jaeger, Founder, Love to Appreciate
When is the last time you appreciated your team at work? When you did, was it in the way each individual likes to be shown appreciation? If your answer is, “I’m not sure” or “I think so” then this episode is for you. According to our guest, Diana Rogers Jaeger, research shows that when employees feel appreciated in the workplace, employee engagement goes up which leads to increased morale, productivity and retention.  Diana is a company culture and appreciation expert. As founder of Love To Appreciate Consulting, she specializes in working with organizations to drive employee engagement to improve productivity, retention, and job satisfaction. She also strengthens teams by providing executive coaching and leadership training, and by facilitating team building activities and retreats.

She is a go-to speaker on the topics of employee engagement, workplace culture, and the 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace for conferences, luncheons, and employee events. As founder of Love To Appreciate Consulting, she specializes in working with organizations to drive employee engagement to improve productivity, retention, and job satisfaction. She also strengthens teams by providing executive coaching and leadership training, and by facilitating team building activities and retreats. Diana resides in Fort Collins, Colorado with her husband and two sons and her life motto is "Live a life of adventure while making the world a better place." If the Great Resignation has taught us anything, it's that employees today expect more in the workplace. They expect to be treated like a human being or else they quit. Organizations struggling to keep talent are most likely underestimating the power of appreciation. Research shows that when employees feel appreciated in the workplace, employee engagement goes up which leads to increased morale, productivity and retention. The 5 Languages of Appreciation in the Workplace is a proven method for developing positive workplace relationships and making individuals feel valued by their peers and by their leaders. Teams can better fill each other’s appreciation tanks when they know which language of appreciation speaks to a specific individual. The reality is most people have never been trained to show appreciation well which is why most people don't do it well. I'm here to change that! ABOUT BIG SKY FRANCHISE TEAM:This episode is powered by Big Sky Franchise Team.

103. 6 Ways You Are Devaluing Your Business and How to Fix it—Christine Nicholson, Business Mentor, Christine Nicholson Business Mentor
Did you know that 70% of owner-managed businesses are planning to rely on their business to fund their retirement? And, that just 2% of business owners know their value? This means that 7 out of 10 listeners to this show are planning to use their business as retirement and most have no idea what their business value is and that is not good. That’s why I am excited to have our guest today.Our guest today is Christine Nicholson, who is a professional business mentor. She recently won the prestigious business mentor of the year award and is the author of 4 books, including her most recent book, “Sell It: How to Sell Your Business for a Richer Happier Future.”  Along her journey, she has worked for 2 royal families, run a zoo, rescued a charity, and dug up the biggest unexploded WW2 bomb found in the UK! Her interview is jam-packed with practical suggestions you can implement immediately into your business.

Working with +£2m turnover business founders who still work in the day to day management of their technology, engineering or product services businesses. I am proud that my clients have made me UK Business Mentor of the Year 2020. I was a finalist in the National Entrepreneur Awards 2017 – and my client actually won the award – and I’ve appeared on BBC talking about business! I have received the highest Professional Accreditation as a Business Mentor from the Association of Business Mentors and I am a Court Assistant and Freeman the Company of Entrepreneurs of the City of London. I’ve been helping businesses for over 30 years – experiencing success and failures, making mistakes along the way and discovering how to avoid them. I built my first business from £0 to £4.5m t/o in less than 15 months. I then helped a client rescue their high-tech engineering company from bankruptcy to an 8-figure exit in 18 months. Along the way I’ve worked with every type of business from software companies to taking over the running of a zoo. Walking in the founder’s shoes and living to tell the tale enables me to help other business owners become the heroes in their businesses. My clients have always increased turnover, profitability and cash – they’ve made millions and saved themselves thousands in the process. Better businesses lead to a better world not just for now but for our future. Currently, over 50% of businesses do not get sold, leaving business owners closing their doors on a lifetime of work – making just 1% difference to that number could have a huge positive impact on those businesses, communities and society as a whole.ABOUT BIG SKY FRANCHISE TEAM:This episode is powered by Big Sky Franchise Team.

In 1987, Bew started multiple companies in an effort to expand from selling on the road to building a national brand. One of those companies was Summer Classics, which was created around Bew’s thought of designing and manufacturing products that he would want for his own backyard. With a business model based on creating products that were consumer-driven, would stand the test of time, and would not go out of style, Summer Classics officially took off in 1987.ABOUT BIG SKY FRANCHISE TEAM:This episode is powered by Big Sky Franchise Team.
