EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS

Learn to play business the poker way

Games open up an individual to a wealth of virtues that could be incorporated to mould a person’s business character for good. Games, poker especially, “tests a person’s mental strength and resilience. Games also teach teamwork and communication, finding the best team to get things done, tolerating and leveraging on adversity, using critique as fuel, as well as exploiting opportunities.” An individual needs these qualities meshed into their core to succeed in business.

Uni-directionality is key

“Because there is so much new stuff coming out all the time, it is very easy to be pulled in different directions.” “When you are starting, it is very important to focus on one channel and let it be your foundation before branching out.”

Network at scale

“People crave and are still craving relationships. Leverage and relationships are the names of the game and it will continue to be that way.” Connecting, reconnecting, and engaging people are ways to build leverage to build an audience.

The best SEO strategy

“The two most important things in 2021 are still traffic and links. There are over a billion blogs in the world and it is getting more competitive in search engine results. A lot of people would optimize for keywords but they do not optimize for titles and Meta descriptions. If you are searching for something and you see a great title, you are more likely to click on it. People should also monitor if they are losing traffic on their key content.”
