    I’m Offended!

    in Business

    Are we raising a generation of wimps? Why has America shifted from the land of excellence to the land of participation trophies and “Safe Spaces”. What is happening on our college campuses these days that is fostering this idea that we need to coddle an entire generation of students. This week we talk with Eugene Volokh (UCLA School of Law), Dr. Everett Piper (President, Oklahoma Wesleyan University) and speaker Jason Dorsey (http://jasondorsey.com) about the direction of millenials, their opinions and what it means for the future of American discourse.

     

    THIS IS NOT A DAY CARE. IT’S A UNIVERSITY:

    HR Examiner Radio: Kelly Robinson, CEO, Broadbean

    in Business

    Kelly Robinson first showcased his entrepreneurial spirit as a co-founder of a technical staffing firm in the United Kingdom. He then went on to launch Broadbean (2001) the vision being to post the worlds online job adverts and cultivated this idea, with a fantastic team into a global business.


    Kelly grew Broadbean by fostering a working environment characteristic of many young technology companies: one that allowed his people to thrive. In 2009, he brought Broadbean to the United States and recreated the type of environment which had proven to be successful for him in the UK. He hand-selected the first of his crew in the US office upon their ability to work collaboratively while taking ownership in wearing many hats. He believed that the culture he fostered would need to parallel the spirit of the existing Broadbean brand in order to produce great results. A few years later, Broadbean Technology has created a strong global presence with offices in the US, Europe and Australia with no intention of slowing down. Although its organizational culture has evolved with its growth, the company remains true to the core fundamentals of its inception: “Keep it light and fun while getting the job done!” 


    Kelly loves Tottenham, F1, Wing Chun, Soccer Coaching and Snowboarding so if you cold call him, which you probably will if you are reading this, you could do worse than engage him on one of these subjects. 


    He dislikes Arsenal and people who start a cold call with “how are you” especially when you have never spoken to him! 


    Kelly is also the winner of the London & South East lifetime achievement award for commitment to the recruitment industry.

    Healthy Living And Diabetes: The Benefits Of Regular Hot Tub Use 
    Regular hot tub use may offer some help by boosting weight loss efforts, improving sleep and reducing stress. Here’s what you should know about diabetes and the hot tub. 


    Weight Control 
    Studies confirm that submerging the body in the heated, massaging water of a hot tub can help reduce overall weight. It works because the elevated temperature dilates blood vessels, helping circulation - similar to light cardiovascular exercise.


    More Restful Sleep 
    Using a hot tub before bed increases body temperature, which decreases sharply when getting out of the water. This decrease signals the brain that it’s time to sleep, fostering an easy, peaceful transition from awake to sleep. 


    Promoting a Stress-Free Lifestyle 
    A hot tub is a proven way to relieve everyday stress that can lead to elevated blood sugar, sleeplessness, fatigue, even depression. Targeted massage hits tension points with pinpoint accuracy, loosening stiff muscles and easing stress related pain.

    Franchise Interviews Meets with Laura Novak Meyer of Little Nest Portraits

    in Entrepreneur

    LITTLE NEST FOUNDER LAURA NOVAK MEYER BEGAN HER PHOTOGRAPHY CAREER AT AGE 23 AND MET IT WITH SWIFT SUCCESS.


    Her fresh sensibility and talent for putting clients at ease led to a successful business and ample recognition in the media and within the photography industry. But all of the success left her lacking. As much as she loved photographing clients, she had other passions that she couldn't address as a solo entrepreneur, including mentoring new talent and fostering creative community.


    She also saw a missing element in the photography marketplace. Social photography was breaking new boundaries, thanks to real-time sharing via Pinterest, tumblr and Instagram. But for families with children who wanted high quality, modern, unique imagery, the options were limited to either mass-market chain studios that prized volume over ambiance, or extremely expensive custom photo sessions only available to a small percentage of families.


    WHY COULDN'T THERE BE SOMETHING ELSE?


    A boutique photography studio that offered stellar imagery in a relaxed atmosphere, where families could slow down and enjoy the experience.  A committed team of artists with the common goal of capturing clients' stories in a collaborative, creative atmosphere. An artistic philosophy that blended classic portraiture technique with spontaneity and emotion. On these premises, Little Nest was born. Little Nest Portraits has expanded into a national brand, while always keeping those core values at heart.
