137 - Why You Must Take Time to Onboard Even Expert Employees with Travis Johnson

When onboarding experts onto your developing team, it can be easy to assimilate to a minimized training plan because, after all, they are “experts.” Many small business owners fail to realize that regardless of how much one knows, they have never worked for you. This means it might not be as easy for them to translate their skill into how you run your business and what you expect from them without proper training.  

As Travis Johnson highlights, putting time into new expert employees is just as important as training a novice new member.

People need to be onboarded properly if you want your new team member to fully understand their role and your expectations. And this understanding is what is needed for team member success, business growth, and for you to be happy signing their paycheck every pay period.

Host: 2021 Veteran Podcast Awards

When studying the statistics and markeating strategies that go along with podcasting, we noticed there were no awards for Veteran Podcasters. Or, if there were, they didn’t advertise very well. So we created the Veterans Podcast Awards! We saw other award offerings requiring a registration fee, but knowing many vets are doing this as therapy and may be strapped for cash, we are offering it for free.
We get contacted by vets who are thinking of quitting or are disheartened they have no listeners. We think this will help give them something to look forward to and keep cranking out episodes. Now, we ARE looking for good content, but the listeners will deal the final hand since it’s all listener voting.

Give Up the Struggle to Get What You Want

Give Up the Struggle to Get What You Want Travis Johnson, a naval officer based in Oklahoma, joined me to share how to give up the struggle in life to get what you want. What does he mean? When you’re efforting – the hustle and grind mentality of trying to make something happen, you’re creating self imposed struggle. Instead, surrender your plan and be guided. BTFA – Beliefs Thoughts Feelings Action Your beliefs are created from repetitive thoughts. These beliefs create your feelings and emotions and ultimately lead to the action – or inaction that you take. If you’re currently struggling at work, in business, with your finances, health, relationships or any other area of life, trace it back to your thoughts. You get to choose what you accept, and what you reject. Give up your agenda Hint, all struggle is self imposed. If you want to change the trajectory of your life – you have to realize that maybe, just maybe you don’t know everything. As Travis shares, he gave up his agenda in business and what he was trying to push in order to be led. He’s created a podcasting course and all of the resources have been brought to him – because he let go of the need to control.
