The saying, “No man is an island,” holds true in business. After all, it is impossible to do everything by yourself. The sooner you recognize this, I believe the closer you get to achieving any goal you set for your company.

That said, while two heads are always better than one, having the right two minds is imperative. Building a dynamic team, both externally and internally, is the cornerstone of any successful business. For your company to experience significant revenue, you need help. These five tips keep me on pace in my business as I continue to build my team:

1. Create a hiring plan.

You must have an effective plan of action when building your team. Onboarding new members can be a challenging process, and hiring the wrong people

Building resilience through employee-centric social wellbeing strategies

Without a doubt, businesses will look back on the year 2020 and the months and years that follow as a time of rapid and transformative change and uncertainty. The COVID-19 pandemic was indiscriminate of employment status, working practices, roles and hierarchies, upending the way we approach work, as well as employee expectations of their employers.

The changes businesses have had to make have impacted the way colleagues interact, forced managers to relinquish control, empowering their teams and individuals and caused businesses to find new ways of operating more efficiently and improving the employee experience.

One key difference between COVID-19 disruption and other forms of workplace disruption has been the replacement of physical interactions with virtual connectivity which, while useful, can be a breeding ground for miscommunication and isolation. Historically, employers may easily have taken for granted the closeness of their workforces and the ease of forming social bonds between colleagues.

Mastercard: Building The Modern Payments Landscape

For most consumers, change is a funny thing. It can be almost impossible to get a consumer to let go of an ingrained habit under normal circumstances. But pushed by the pressure of an unusual circumstance to do something a different way, it’s amazing how quickly a new habit can grow up in the space an old one left behind. That’s a lesson Sherri Haymond, Mastercard’s executive vice president of digital partnerships, has had the opportunity to witness professionally — and experience personally — over the past half year.

“Before [COVID-19] I was not an avid Instacart user, because I actually like going to the grocery store. I think it’s fun. There’s an element of discovery I like,” Haymond told Webster in a recent digital discussion. “But to have the convenience and the safety of delivery through something like Instacart — for me,

Building a U.S. THC Brand, One State at a Time: Cannabis Weekly

(Bloomberg) — How many brands of soft drinks can you name off the top of your head?

Nearly everyone can come up with Coke and Pepsi, but go further down the list and it quickly diverges, based on regional breakdowns and local loyalties. That’s what the nascent cannabis industry is dealing with, too. Cannabis firms that want to dominate the sector are facing a rule of numbers — there’s only room for a few big names in any category, and breaking into American households with name recognition is a monumental task.

In the CBD industry, products can at least sell across state lines, so becoming the “Oreo” or “Tylenol” of CBD is within reach for the most successful players. But for companies pitching products that contain THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, brand-building gets tricker. Because regulations vary by state, crucial brand-building elements like formatting and packaging can

4 ways young people can start building wealth, even in a recession

It may sound crazy to talk about building wealth during a recession in which millions are struggling with unemployment and paying their bills. But financial expert Patrice Washington says that not only can Americans dig themselves out of debt right now, they can take steps toward building long-lasting wealth. 

“It’s really hard to think about how you can build wealth in the midst of a recession, and I think that a lot of times we assume it’s about being a millionaire,” Washington tells CNBC Make It.

But it’s not. Building wealth is all about having the right mindset, Washington says. “A recession is how I actually built my whole life and career,” she says. “I lost everything in the Great Recession and had to start over from scratch.”

Here are four approaches Washington recommends working on now to set yourself up for financial success.
