A little about our guests. Samantha (Sam) and Scott Darling are history and travel buffs who spent a few years nomadic before opening the Uphill House B&B. Scott is a graduate of New Mexico State University and Sam went to Ole Miss. They met in Arkansas while serving in the education corps. In 2012, Sam got the bug to become an entrepreneur and settled on a B&B in Virginia. Sam and Scott are craft beer enthusiasts and love Virginia for their many craft beer breweries. The B&B is also located in the middle of wine country, so Scott and Sam have been working long and hard learning about the art of wine. They’ve also begun to explore a love of whiskey. When they aren’t sleeping indoors, Scott and Sam enjoy camping along with hiking, kayaking, biking, and rock climbing. They also love to travel and enjoy the fact that with business partners they can really trust (Sam’s parents) they have plenty of opportunities to see the world. A little about their business. After meeting and traveling around for the education corps from 2007 to 2014, Scott and Sam decided to settle down and open a business.

In fact, the idea of a Bed & Breakfast was actually Suzanne’s. The B&B was built in 2010 and purchased by Sam, Scott, Suzanne, and David in 2014. A more modern B&B, Uphill House sits in the middle of the history of the beginning of the United States. Sam and Suzanne serve as Culinary Operations and Housekeeping, Scott does Maintenance and Finance, and David is all things Tourism. Together all four help with Marketing, Advertising, and Landscape/Yard Work. Scott and Sam have taken the concept of Together 24/7 and added a whole new layer to it.

131: Treat Your Business Cards Like Gold

About the show Ever been to a networking event where someone in the crowd plays the card game? You know the game. It is where a business owner runs around the room as fast as they can and hands their business card to anyone who will take it. There is even a long-time business owner here in Phoenix who leaves business cards on any and every flat surface, including the top of urinals. We can’t make this stuff up. What if your business cards were dipped in gold, would you throw them around to anyone and everyone? Of course not. You would hand them out to only the most deserving of people. There would be an etiquette to the way you give out your cards. On today’s show, we talk about handing out your cards and using them as a way to build relationships, not just add people to your email list without permission. When you use your business cards for good, you create better relationships.

111: Johan Esteve and Paloma Pelaez of The Norwegian Star

A little about our guests. What do you do when you’re on vacation and meet an interesting couple that is together 24/7, but doesn’t quite fit the usual requirement of owning a business together? You interview them anyway for the Thursday after vacation show. Johan and Paloma work for Norwegian Cruise Line and they are the Cruise Next team on board the beautiful NCL Star. We met them at the Latitudes welcome party and we thought, wow, 24/7 and no place to hide. This should be good. Paloma is from Mexico City, Mexico and Johan is from France. They met on an NCL cruise they worked together when Paloma was still on the Cruise Next team and Johan was in food and beverage. They dated, fell in love, had to work together to stay on the same ship and got married. Although they are not the founders of NCL or even the Cruise Next program, they are beyond 24/7. When you work with your sweetheart and are sweethearts with your working partner, as these two are, that’s one kind of together all the time. But when you live on a ship, you can’t just jump in the car and have a guys’ night out, and you communicate in a third language (Johan speaks French, Paloma speak Spanish, so they communication in English) it can put added stress on any relationship. This is 24/7 like you can’t imagine and they are making it work well. Get in Touch with Our Guests Paloma and Johan work on Deck 7, mid-ship on the Norwegian Star at the moment.

105: Proactive vs. Reactive

About the show How much time do you spend in your business creating systems and figuring things out as you go along? So often in business we become reactive and we don’t even realize it. Get a new client, put the on a contact list. Get a lead from an online ad, create something on the contact list to differentiate that a lead from the client. Oftentimes, entrepreneurs don’t think ahead. When Barry and Catherine realized how much time they were spending being reactive and how much time in the day they were losing to getting and servicing clients, they realized they needed to stop, look at their systems and be proactive. Looking at all the services and thinking through what the client will need allows you to become proactive and create systems that make the back-end processes go faster. On this episode we’ll share some examples of how you can spend your time being reactive and how much time you’re wasting in business with that model. Then we’ll touch upon some questions to ask yourself to create systems you can easily work with in your business.
