Gould says this could be a year to get creative.
“Coming from an Italian family, as I was growing up, you know, Thanksgiving for me was as much about pasta as it was a turkey.” Watch the full interview – https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2021/10/27/thanksgiving-2021-costs-expensive
“At the end of the day, a business has to fulfill customers,” Mr. Gould said, in defense of companies hiring extra workers in preparation for the number of them that will inevitably leave. If an employee decides not to show up to work one day, then there is no product that day, simple as that. The employee didn’t lose anything in that exchange besides a day worth of pay but the business lost out on crucial customers and revenue. By over-hiring, the company is protecting themselves as “60-80% of somebody’s net worth is tied to their business; it HAS to work for them.” This behavior of hopping between jobs and quitting ones as soon as it becomes more demanding may seem impolite and in poor taste, and it is, but it is not their fault.

Carl Gould’s latest Forbes article- Whether it’s part of a long-term plan or a new development, when it comes to selling a business, preparation is everything. Here’s how to make a smooth transition.
“It’s one of those deals that we have to just live with. Is it fair to anybody? No, it’s not fair to anybody,” Carl Gould, president of 7 Stage Advisors, told Dias.
Gould, a worldwide leading authority on business, said small business owners, who are still trying to win back customers, will suffer the most.
“You’ve been spending the last 18 months just hanging on for dear life, and now what we’re doing is restricting the flow of potential customers that will come through there,” he said. Watch the interview HERE
“If you have to get a notepad, can you find one? Yes, probably. Can you find the exact one your teacher wants to go in your binder for that special class in a certain color that’s 2 inches thick? Eh, that might be a bit tough,” says Carl Gould of & Stage Advisors.Gould owns a company that advises small business owners on how to grow their companies. He says that the shortage on everything from backpacks and notepads to Chromebooks and clothing is thanks to what he calls a “perfect storm” of pandemic-related supply chain disruptions and staffing shortages.“Whatever your kids need – it has been manufactured. It is somewhere. The problem is we can’t get it here on time,” Gould says.He says that parents and students should start looking for supplies now if they haven’t already. He also advises looking online and in person. He says that if you find an item you need now, grab it and don’t wait for comparison shopping. He also says to consider secondhand or lightly used items.“That’s when you want to hop on local neighborhood social media groups, you’re Nextdoor, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo groups. Here is where social media helps you. And tell people what you are looking for,” Gould says.Gould also suggests looking into marketing and promotional companies for specific items. Many bought products last year and have plenty to sell.He says that the supply chain issues could take another year to level out. Read the full article HERE
Solopreneurs (entrepreneurs that are in business for themselves, with no employees) have a pretty big hill to climb. While, in my experience, they are usually an optimistic bunch, few are able to envision a big end game. In fact, just getting through the first year can be a real challenge. For these folks, growing into a seven- or eight-figure business seems unlikely, maybe even impossible. Read more…
“You’re now getting into people’s medical history and their privacy,” Carl Gould, president of 7 Stage Advisors, told Dias. “People do have religious and philosophical principles that dictate whether or not they take a vaccine.”
Gould is a worldwide leading authority on business. He says a mask mandate is much easier for private companies to handle than vaccine rules.
“To try to enforce a vaccine mandate for your employees is going to open a Pandora’s box that you’ll be sorting out in the courts for years to come,” he said. Read more HERE
The CDC and the White House say you can take off the masks in public places. Retailers have followed — Target, Walmart and many others have announced you don’t need masks to shop in their stores — unless you are in New Jersey. Governor Phil Murphy is sticking with the mask mandate — he says at least for a little while. All of our neighboring states are following the CDC’s recommendations — and removing mask rules. Many business owners in New Jersey may now be in the position of having to be ‘mask police’. Joining us now is business expert and President of 7 Stage Advisors in Butler, Carl Gould.

Business experts, like Carl Gould with 7 Stage Advisors, call the problem a perfect storm, contributing the supply issues to factors beyond the pandemic. Gould brought up last year’s record hurricane season.
“This typically puts pressure on the market demand on its own. Couple that with COVID where people were focusing on their home improvements with stimulus checks, and to finish off the trifecta there were supply chain disruptions. If you add all of that together, you have a shortage of materials with highly escalating prices,” Gould said. Read full article HERE

Get Dirty Together
A good exercise is to get dirty together. Either have the teams collaborate on a project together where the results of the project impact both teams equally, or have team members from one team rotate in and work on the other team for a period of time. As the teams get to know the work style and intent of the others, an even stronger bond will build. –Check out the full article here
