How Are Conscious Business Practices Good For Your Wellbeing?

Anybody using conscious business practices knows that enhanced wellbeing is a natural by-product of living and breathing them. When your focus is not on your company’s bottom line, but is centred on providing solutions that will benefit your business, team, customers, local community, and the environment, a heightened level of mental, emotional and physical wellbeing is achieved. From a manager’s perspective, when you are transparent about your goals and achieve buy-in from all stakeholders, you’re one step closer to a smoothly run company. If your company values are crafted around selfless ways of being, having empathy for others and empowering all, you’ll find the workplace to be an uplifting environment where productivity and innovation are high. And regularly reiterating these values also helps to remind team members to consistently adhere to them. All of this goes some way toward improving the general health of the manager, as well as the team. In a conscious business, the working environment is crucial. Meetings become places where no answer is ridiculed; it’s a safe space for even the quietest team member to share concerns or ideas. Mistakes are seen as learning opportunities so they are actually welcomed. This mentality helps to create an empowered, energised and flexible environment which encourages great collaboration, allowing the team to do their best work… and when the team are able to do their best work, they feel good about themselves. Managers also make a conscious effort to discover what motivates each individual team member and create plans […]

The following is a list of the fastest and most effective ways you, as a recruiter, can secure new clients for your agency.

How To Make Money Buying and Selling Domain Names

I came across a great article by BitRebels.com, “How To Make Money Buying And Selling Domain Names.” Being in the space, I have personally seen many of my colleagues, friends, and competitors make millions doing this. Working at Uniregistry, and having the opportunity to manage and broker domain names directly out of Frank Schilling’s 365,000 domain name portfolio for seven years eclipsed over 100,000,000 USD in sales. Seeing that ungodly number of revenue, some people need to remember quite a few important things: #1: I mentioned before that the portfolio I represented had 365,000 names in it…Well, if he paid 8.25 a year in renewals per domain, that means $3,011,250 every year was spent on renewals come hell or high water. If I recall correctly, it was more than that. #2: Selling 100,000,000 in domains required a lot of hard work, not just from the domain owner but from an army of salespeople that I had the pleasure of managing.

Those salespeople needed to be paid! #3: You need a robust CRM to track all of your leads, sales, and statistics and a tech team to back that up. Talented developers like the ones we had were not cheap. #4: We also had our fair share of legal issues. An attorney was on retainer. We used him quite a bit! Almost daily! Not necessarily for […]
