Episode 63 — The Atlanta Sessions, Part 2: Arrow Exterminators CEO Emily Thomas Kendrick & President Tim Pollard
The Boardroom Buzz Pest Control Podcast
How did Arrow Exterminators grow into the $300 million family business it is today? Step into The Boardroom as Emily Thomas Kendrick takes us back to Arrow’s humble beginnings. What sounds like an episode of Breaking Bad, was just Emily’s PawPaw cooking up business greatness. Step back to hear Arrow’s family heritage, including Joe “Chief” Thomas taking the reins in the ‘70s and Emily’s rise to Chief Executive Officer. Hear how he now-Arrow President Tim Pollard found his way onto the Arrow team. The two have a long-standing history as “Sugar Booger” recalls their first meeting. The two strike a great balance, and Emily concedes to Tim’s operational prowess. “Chief” gets credit for growth by division business model. Hear the irony of trying to stay small as you grow. With 2,736 teammates spread over 144 service centers in 11 states, its family culture on a massive scale that has led to Arrow’s success. It’s clear that hard work and results get rewarded at Arrow. In fact, they morphed their longstanding generic vision into spotlighting rockstars. What can be overlooked in such a large organization; the executive team emphasizes how decision making impacts the entire team. Family culture shines through as Emily and Tim describe former COO and President-to-be late Jeff Singley as a brother, son, and best friend. The conversation turns to M&A and integration. How does Arrow decide on geographic expansion? Paul asks about integrating new employees into the deliberate family culture. Sitting off-stage, Kevin Burns gets credit for setting the stage for smooth integration weeks before Emily and Tim arrive on the scene. It sounds like deliberate transparency takes center stage describing opportunities for new teammates. It's been rumored that Emily gives out her cell number while onboarding new teammates. Is it true? If so, does she regret it? How does Emily respond to representing women in pest control? It begs to discuss diversity in a male-dominated industry. Do Arrow’s teammates represent the cities they serve? Speaking of local, Emily and Tim share their new plan to give back to local charities.

You will find yourself smiling and nodding, "hmmm" as Dr. Thomas generously invites you into an intellectual, curious playground.

The reason Covid-19 became the pandemic it did had to do with a distinctly modern phenomenon: global mass travel. Until about a year ago, getting on a plane and travelling thousands of miles across the Earth for a business meeting, or a short holiday in a different country, was something millions of people didn’t think twice about.These days, travel is one of the things the pandemic has deprived us of, reminding us what a privilege it was to be able to roam freely around the world, making us appreciate what we previously took for granted. Travel is one of those topics that philosophers didn’t really think about until the age of discovery, around the 16th century. Francis Bacon, John Locke and René Descartes all thought travel could make one a better philosopher. But what is the value of travel? Why do we enjoy visiting far-away places, and getting out of our comfort zone? Is there any value to waiting in airport lounges and train stations? And what are the ethical concerns around doom-tourism? Emily Thomas is an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Durham, and a member of the Institute of Mediaeval and Early Modern Studies. Emily’s research focuses on metaphysics, the study of the general and necessary features of existence, and more specifically the philosophy of space and time. She is the author of two books on the subject, Absolute Time: Rifts in Early Modern British Metaphysics (2018, Oxford University Press) and Early Modern Women on Metaphysics (2018, Cambridge University Press). But apart from being a philosopher, a lover of wisdom, Emily is also a lover of travel. Marrying her two passions she wrote a book called The Meaning of Travel: Philosophers Abroad .This podcast is created in partnership with The Philosopher, the UK’s longest running public philosophy journal.

Guest Profile: Emily Thomas; founder of Sundari Swim brand, entrepreneur, educator, and a business coach. Today’s Episode Summary: Have you ever realized the power of incorporating new habits in your life? Incorporating small but consistent habits –like, rising early, reading books, listening to a productive conversation, etc- may look like they are not creating any impact on your life instantaneously but they have a huge compound effect on your life. The truth is, these atomic habits have the power to change the course of your life and can lead you toward your goal; success. To unlock your true potential you first need to understand yourself and ask yourself some hard questions – like, what you are good at, what it is that you want in your life, how you can be a better person, etc - and then you need to incorporate new habits that are in alignment with your goal. The biggest hurdle - that anyone faces while inculcating new habits - is the whirlwind of "busy life”. For most people their new habits get lost in the whirlwind of day-to-day life but if you want to reach your goal you really need to prioritize what you need in life over the whirlwind. Now comes the question, how can you develop long lasting habits? For that, you need to understand that consistency is the key. A consistent new habit breaks old patterns and changes neural pathways in your brain that shifts you dramatically. My guest Emily is suggesting that you should maintain a diary to write your goals, ambitions, and your habits to be consistent in your habits. Emily Thomas herself helps entrepreneurs and other people to know their true selves and helps them to remove blockages in their lives that are holding them back to achieve their goals. She is an educator and works on the mindsets to unpack the true power of the people. Emily combined her ability to educate people with her swimwear business and now she is creating an impact on the lives of many people especially women. What You Will Learn from this Episode: In today’s episode, you will learn how significantly new habits can change your life, how you can develop any new habit, how to break the illusion of “being busy” to create a new habit, and why developing new habits is super important for entrepreneurs. My guest Emily is also talking about the impact of deliberately incorporating new habits in her own life and how she is helping other people to unfold their true selves and achieve success. Moreover, you will learn what is the role of intentions to achieve any goal, how to get out of any negative feeling and focus on goals, what is the role of visualization and affirmations in your success, what are some necessary questions that you must ask yourself to elevate yourself, and last but not the least how to get rid of two shackles: 1. Haunting memories of the past 2. Fear of the future. The Episode Timeline: [00:00]– Introduction of podcast and today’s guest. [01:52]- “WHY” of Emily’s life. [05:03]- Energetics of the intention. [07:07]- Breaking the illusion of “being busy” and creating a new habit. [10:11]- How to develop any new habit. [14:57]- Developing new habits are super important especially for entrepreneurs.

[32:42]- What Emily does and how she helps entrepreneurs to unfold their true self. [35:20]- Why Emily decided to be in the swimwear business. Golden Nuggets from Episode: “A common thread among all successful entrepreneurs is that they worked on their minds, they worked on their thoughts, and they had the habits - they wake up really early, they priorities their day, they don’t say they are too busy in-fact they make time for what’s important, and most of the time they don’t work as hard as a lot of people think that they work because they have done such an incredible job of outsourcing and hiring.” -Emily Thomas “Intention is the very first thing that you should look at when you are deciding to start a business or build a brand or whatever it is that you want to do. If your intention will be on the right side, the results will follow.” –Corey Berrier “Manifestation does not mean you will get everything that you visualize. It may not come in the same form or shape as you visualized it, however, you got to have enough awareness to realize that when things do come your way that’s a by-product of your visualization or manifestation.” –Corey Berrier “The moment that you stop projecting your opinions on people is the moment that you start feeling better.” -Emily Thomas “No matter what you want, you always have the opportunity to get that.” -Emily Thomas “If you put out crappy energy, that’s what you are going to get.” –Corey Berrier "Everything is a lesson. The universe provides us many experiences to teach us and help us elevate and if we are paying attention we elevate faster, if not we don't." -Emily Thomas “Being busy is not necessarily productive.” –Corey Berrier “We all are trying to survive; we all are trying to understand what this game of life is all about.” -Emily Thomas Emily’s Website & Social Media Handles: Emily’s Brand Website: https://sundariswim.com/ Emily’s Website: http://www.emilykthomas.com/ Instagram: @itsemilythomas https://www.instagram.com/sundari_swim/ My Website & Social Media Handles: Website: https://salesceo.co/ Facebook: @Corey Berrier https://www.facebook.com/corey.berrier Instagram: @coreyberrier https://www.instagram.com/coreyberrier/ @successfullifepodcast https://www.instagram.com/successfullifepodcast/ Twitter: @ successfullifepodcast https://twitter.com/success40324744 Linkedin: Corey Berrier- Successful Life Podcast https://www.linkedin.com/in/coreysalescoach/ YouTube: Successful Life Podcast https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrPl4lUyKV7hZxoTksQDsyg/featured
