My best advice to land an investor

 

It’s time to Powershift! This week, I shed light on how to increase engagement within your team, bring you some motivation through music, and speak to Liz from Portland Juice Co, a woman-owned juice company made from locally sourced fruits and vegetables. 

This “Powershift Your Week” is presented by T-Mobile® for Business. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s segments:

Did You Know: In a Deloitte survey, 83% of millennials reported higher levels of engagement when they believed their company fosters an inclusive culture. The days of “go get me a coffee” internships are long gone - you need to create inclusivity within your team at all levels. Create a culture where younger employees can share ideas and contribute to decision-making in order to increase engagement.

Motivation Mix: Check out today’s song, You get what you give by New Radicals - “This world is gonna pull through. Don’t give up. You’ve got a reason to live. Can’t forget, we only get what we give” -  You can find it on the Powershift Your Week Motivation Mix on Spotify  → https://dj.daymondjohn.com/spotify

T-Mobile For Business Fan Q&A: I talked to Liz from Portland Juice Co, who has not only been lowering delivery minimums to encourage people to stay home but also donating juice to hospital workers throughout COVID-19. Nine years ago, Liz started Portland Juice Co. in a 600 square foot building. Her advice is to “start as small as possible until you have traction to grow.” (#PowerofBroke, am I right?) We discuss what she should be focusing on during an unstable economy, finding the sweet spot in pricing and how to foster conversations about social justice in the workplace.
