Episode 99: Remote Work: Overcoming Challenges and Maximizing Success
I’m excited to share with you some upcoming events, insights on following God’s plan, the power of storytelling in art, the value of education, and the challenges and benefits of remote work.
Upcoming Events: Future Legacy Panel and Brunch
I’m thrilled to announce an upcoming event, the Future Legacy Panel and Brunch. This event will not only feature an award show but also discussions on remote work. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn, network, and engage in meaningful conversations.
Following God’s Plan: The Importance of Faith
In our journey through life, it’s crucial to follow God’s plan. This involves prioritizing prayer, reading the word of God, and following the commands that God puts on our hearts. I encourage you all to seek out a godly community and obey the truth found in God’s word. Remember Jeremiah 29:11, which speaks of God’s plans to prosper and give hope to His people.
The Power of Storytelling in Art
Art is a powerful medium for storytelling. Take Derek Minor’s album and short film, for example. These works show how artists can convey their stories and connect with their audience. I urge all artists to invest in their art and consider the power of storytelling.
The Value of Education
In today’s society, education is often devalued. Despite the challenges of student debt, I believe in placing value on education. I recall my decision to pursue a master’s degree while working in a large organization. Initially, I questioned its necessity, but a conversation with the CEO changed my perspective. He emphasized that while I had achieved success, I was still on my journey. This advice resonated with me, and I decided to pursue my MBA.
During my MBA journey, I realized the power of education. It provides a foundation that allows for more flexibility and innovation in applying processes learned. I encourage others not to underestimate the power of education. The knowledge gained cannot be taken away.
The Challenges and Benefits of Remote Work
Remote work has become more prevalent during the pandemic, but many employers still struggle with it. I want to highlight four key challenges employers face with remote work: its impact on new hires, maintaining productivity, fostering team cohesion, and managing work-life balance.
