Episode 2: Light at the End of the Tunnel


Podcast Show Notes

It’s no doubt that this has been one of the most challenging times — for our country, for our small businesses, for our families — and yet, there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Today, I’m sharing some key thoughts and practices for you to consider for your small business during this difficult time.

If you know me at all, you likely know that I often choose the road less traveled. Every business is unique and instead of following the crowd, I believe it’s important to carefully consider your businesses’ one-of-a-kind situation.

On today’s podcast, I’m sharing some tips on how you can lead proactively — from communicating openly with your team, adding additional value to your customers, how (and when) to pivot, eliminating a fear mentality, and using this time to reflect on your business and personal wellbeing.

This too shall pass and my team is eager to help you prepare your business for success when it does! Click here for more information!

Episode 1: Introduction


Podcast Show Notes

I’m Jean Kristensen, and I help minority- and women-owned businesses connect to opportunities with government agencies and large corporations. I am passionate about this work because I understand the impact that receiving a large contract can have on a small business. My goal is to provide practical advice and resources to MWBEs on how to do business with the government and navigate the corporate supply chain.

In this debut episode, I cover what you can expect from my all-new podcast:

Truth: There are many opportunities out there for minority- and women-owned businesses, but there are still hurdles to overcome. My focus will be on sharing honest advice with this in mind.

Dispelling Myths: One of those hurdles is an abundance of ineffective or outdated advice on how to grow your business. As the world changes and technology opens up new avenues, it’s essential to stay current on what can help you now, not what worked 15 years ago.

The “Pot of Gold” Issue: When people frequently hear about the potential pot of gold out there but don’t know how to reach it, many people feel inept. After all, if there’s so much opportunity, why can’t everyone make it there? It comes down to finding the right advice, methods, and mentors.

Strategies: I will share my procedures for finding opportunities with government agencies and suppliers, in addition to sharing places to find real (and reliable) information and tactics.

Guests: I have worked with many subject matter experts that have dramatically changed how I do business. In future episodes, I will be inviting these people to the show to share their expertise in finance, human resources, technology, and more.

Please look forward to future shows, and if you have questions, comments, or ideas, you can reach me through my website or social media below.
