Episode 44 - Jess Get Hired Podcast
Uncertainty is produced by disruption because it brings about change. Everyone may not always be in favor of change. When something disrupts the way we learn, act, think, or spend our time, it creates something new, modifies our habits, and heightens our awareness.
Innovation and disruption have an impact on how we approach and implement change. Leaders who are able to navigate through disruptive environments are competitively empowered over those who are unable to do so. They understand the importance of being agile, and flexible, and how to be disruptive themselves.
Meet Wayne Brown, a disruptor in his own right. Wayne is an author, coach, and podcaster, and was recently named “Executive Coach of the Year 2022” by CEO Magazine. With 45 years as a professional executive, Wayne draws on his experience, having worked with diverse cultures from countries across Europe, India, the Middle East, Asia, and North and South America.

Why does outsourcing make sense in America, when so many jobs are being lost? With a recession looming and the cost of goods and services skyrocketing in the United States, many businesses can gain a competitive advantage by outsourcing in order to save their business, cut costs, and improve overall customer satisfaction.
Technology, call centers, human resources, and manufacturing are some of the industries that frequently outsource. On this episode, I will introduce you a company that focuses primarily on the real estate industry, a niche that few people would consider outsourcing their work to. However, if you are a real estate investor, property manager, realtor, or broker, this solution may be worth considering! If you're interested in jobs abroad or working remotely, this is a discussion worth listening to.
We will discuss the benefits of outsourcing as well as how to keep employees engaged when they are remote.
Meet Greg Brooks: Greg is the National Director of Business Development at Rocket Station, an outsourcing firm that assists businesses in hiring skilled virtual assistants. Greg has over a decade of sales, marketing, and business development experience. We will discuss the motivation for outsourcing business components overseas and how it provides companies with the competitive advantage they may require to succeed.
