9 Business Learning from MassMutual Webinar

 Mi Gente I am always finding ways to create impactful content, reason why I was grateful MassMutual hired me to spread the word via @webcitygirls and @ponderful to the online community about a free webinar for business owners. Business owners are the engines that drive the United States economy and we are proud of all the women business owners !!!! They are truly unstoppable!!! Joining the webinar required a short registration process and the day of the event you would get an email with further instructions to connect. Skillful Panelists Monica Villalobos VP Arizona Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (loved her), Paul Sessions Director, Center for Family Business, University of New Haven and Rich Brooks Founder /President, Flyte New Media were on-point and with countless insights for business owners. The one-hour event was moderated by Brian Trzcinski MassMutual Director of Business Markets, who did a convincing job with perfect questions while sharing key points from the 2015 Business Owner Perspectives Study commissioned by MassMutual.

Keeping key employees loyal to the business is the top most business planning issue for small business owners, yet few offer more than health insurance and o generous salary. Webinar @MassMutual happening now: What are the motivations business owners have for taking action and plans in place? #RealBusiness #ad pic.twitter.com/Jw23ExtiqL — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) June 20, 2017 Top 9 Business Learnings from MassMutual #RealBusiness Webinar: In order to protect the business and the family, Business Owners need to have agreements/plans in place and need to overcome being uncomfortable having the conversation with family or business partner. Employee’s are motivated by three things autonomy, mastery and purpose. Business Owners can keep employees loyal by listening, engaging in an open communication, diversity within the company to reflect the employees and customers. Business Owners need to build-up their social media channels like Linkedln, Twitter and Facebook to echo what the company stands for, in order to attract the type of employees desired. Business Owners when interviewing should get people engaged discussing their passions and really listening with out any pre-conceived notion. Business Owners the more you give your employees a voice and a seat at the table, the more loyal the will be. Business Owners should be networking with other businesses that have same challenges to find better solutions collectively. Business Owners can take advantage of Free resources like the Chamber of Commerce, Source, Mastermind and Small Business Development...

Impact of eMerge Americas in my life!

Impact of eMerge Americas in my life!

 This week I was impacted by an extraordinary conference in Miami, eMerge Americas , the dream of one of South Florida’s most successful tech entrepreneurs, Manny Medina and daughter Melissa Medina. eMerge is a tech journey like no other I have experienced that includes a women’s summit, powerful keynotes, expo jam-packed with innovative brilliant ideas and so much more. Please click on the short video interview and meet Melissa: eMerge Americas made me rise-up, because as you know the hustle for entrepreneurs never stops, so this conference refueled my mind and soul by some magical learning experiences I will detail through videos and tweets. I made it to a powerful Keynote with Marcelo Claure, CEO Sprint, a Latino disrupting and impacting the industry positively with an unstoppable drive to better our world. Among others, Marcelo is making the cel phone company human in a way, it’s business with a purpose. He cares and listens to what his customers need, and then turns around and offers the best options in the market. As a social media influencer I have a passion to create content while covering events, and I had the following remarkable exchange on Twitter with digital marketing rock star Scott Monty mentioning T-Mobile CEO John Legere into the conversation, inspired by the live content I was creating about Marcelo Claure. My tweets got a like by Mr. Legere and a retweet by Mr. Claure!!! That's been @JohnLegere's thing at @TMobile for quite a while now. — Scott Monty (@ScottMonty) June 12, 2017 Fun indeed. 😉https://t.co/zr8atcimBa — Scott Monty (@ScottMonty) June 12, 2017 The opening of eMerge Women Innovation Technology Summit was truly remarkable. I was in the first row thanks to a lovely marketing hacker executive I met, and we were both catching every word of impact Shiza Shahid the Co-Founder of the Malala Foundation and Founder of NOWVentures.Co. was sharing. And magic happened when I posted about her thoughts, not only on Twitter, but on my Facebook Personal Profile and she left a Thank you comment!!! WoW moment and a true example of the power of connectivity on social media. The Social Impacts of Being An Entrepreneur panel at WIT was outstanding: Having women sit at the table, enables social impact, caring about the people and the profit ~ @SheWorksCloud @eMergeAmericas #EA17 pic.twitter.com/1QuYhIDly7 — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) June 13, 2017 #Entrepreneurship is about Identifying a way to improve peoples life and to have true freedom ~ @altaventures @eMergeAmericas #EA17 #WIT — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) June 13, 2017 Immigration allows #entrepreneurs access to eco-systems, and innovations with global reach ~ @Shiza @eMergeAmericas #EA17 — Lynn Ponder (@Ponderful) June 13, 2017 Immigration is a human...

Tide® PODS™ + Downy® is Suavecito!

 Mi Gente this post is sponsored by P&G Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, but the review experience and opinions are mine! As my Mom’s caregiver, weekly priority responsibilities include washing her clothes, so I was delighted with this new assignment. I learned that Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, offers cleaning and protection from fading and stretching in the wash cycle protecting the cloths you care for. The best part is that you no longer need to worry about putting your favorite washable pieces together as the 3-chamber design a breakthrough in technology, making chemistries compatible in the liquid form and exist harmoniously in the packets, never achieved with liquid detergent. And you can enjoy the washing experience like I did, knowing that Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, is suitable for fabrics that traditionally cannot be washed with fabric softeners, but could benefit from conditioning, such as performance and fitness apparel. It is really easy to use by just placing the packet directly into the washing machine before you add clothes. It will dissolve in any temperature. Friendly reminder if you have small children, please keep it out of their reach in a safe area in your laundry. What I liked the most about using Tide® PODS™ + Downy®, was the pleasant aroma and softness of Mom’s clothes as well as mine. I also liked the packets’ simplistic use, instead of the liquid detergent.
