In business, there are certain ways to generate income when you’re dealing with a crisis. From a personal perspective, it sparks that creativity within one. However, we don’t always want to wait for a crisis to happen for us to be creative and act. In today’s podcast, we look at different ways, creativity, and what you’ve learned since the dawn of the pandemic.
OMG! Have any of you ever been threatened in your job? I still remember, as I’ve said so many times before, that particular Saturday when a headteacher (even without power) said to me, “if you want to continue working here, we’re going to have to have a meeting.”
I had shivers go down my spine and heard, “Arsenio, you’re worth way more than this.”
I went home, started looking for new condos and applied for new jobs in Bangkok.
I quit in my mind and I ultimately left the job two months later.
If someone EVER threatens your job, YOU DESERVE BETTER. I don’t give a damn about the dire work situation, you put that 2-4 week notice in right there while looking them dead in the eye (idiom in regards to staring them directly in their eye), and move on.
You deserve SOOOO much better.
In today’s podcast, I help you navigate rudeness, threats, and emotional blackmail in the workplace!
Boy, how often does this happen? Whether it’s some of my coaching students, getting their score before disappearing (and not telling me what their score was); or the language institutes that I’ve worked for who get what they want (financially) before disappearing. How can you protect yourself from other’s agendas? In today’s podcast, I’ll give you the three “stop” doings.
Think about, when COVID had first erupted last year, how prepared were you — financially? Good chance that you were on the outside looking in. Meaning, when everything shut down, you put all your eggs into one basket (your main income stream) and then POOF! Gone!
How about the second, third, fourth, etc…..times that the economy in your country had been shut down due to COVID?
What I learned was diversification, whether it’s your job, multiple streams of income, and even assets….it’s unbelievably important.
In today’s podcast, you will listen to three financial managers giving their opinions on diversification.
Have you ever made a bad decision? After you ever steered someone in a direction that you regretted — in any facet of your life? See, when clients lose money and when things go back, people look for an outlet to blame most times. In today’s podcast, we talk about that and saw awesome breakdowns in the Retail Market, the economic outlook in Japan in regards to buying yen, and where Nasdaq is going. This was very eye-opening and exciting for me, so you guys better get ready!
Whether you’re at a seminar or your first-ever meeting, how do you initiate a conversation? Most of you find it daunting to do so and believe me, I was that same person back in my freshman year of high school. This was with my BAND MATES! Now, I’m a phenomenal conversationalist because I look at context clues, relate, use gambits and send jolts of energy and positivity in the initiation. In today’s podcast, I’ll teach you the basics of how you can do this in the world of business.
A ridiculous author wrote a book with one of his children in regards to “being lazy is great” and how “lazing around is great for long-term health.” Well, COVID begs to differ. News media around the world was telling us to stay home and not move when in actuality, brisk walks help strengthen the immune system. Being lazy makes your body lethargic, and will very well lead to underlying illnesses. However, academics say that being lazy is great and you shouldn’t work out. You guys know how I feel about these subjects, so in today’s podcast, I’m going to help you and identifying bulls***. Lol
I was invited into a group full of Business English Podcast trainers/coaches, and I was fortunate enough to meet Ebru — a business English trainer in the UK. Oh, there’s so much in this podcast, from her moving to the UK, to learning a lot from her father that inspired her to establish the Growth Mindset. We also did a speaking activity to shine some beautiful life on our past experiences (relatable to IELTS Speaking Part II) and her Rite of Passage in Vietnam (such as what I had in Da Lat two years ago, too). This was a ray of light, and I hope you guys enjoy this!
We’re back! Has connecting with people on LinkedIn ever presented new business opportunities? On LinkedIn, it’s a hit-or-miss market. Last year, I was supposed to start a new short stories series with a voice coach from Jordan, but after being stood up a couple times with zero communication, it failed.
However, did that make me put my guard up and never communicate with people anymore? No.
This year, I’ve connected with the phenomenal Lisa Catto, who appeared in a book I was reading. A wonderful Business English language teacher and solopreneur from Canada, and an international school teacher from Jordan….all through Linkedin, and just recently, I’ve connected with business coaches from Brazil, Turkey, and Chile.
Social media and LinkedIn could be either positive or negative — and it solely depends on the end-user.
Today’s Business English podcast is about that! Early Access ($5 a month) gets you all scheduled podcasts and $30 gets you templates, podcasts, webinars, and 1-hour of business English coaching!
