Thank you so much for joining us today! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What is your backstory?

My coaching and training approach is unique, as it is tailored to the specific needs of individuals, companies, and teams.

My coaching and training services extend to both individuals and organizations, making me a valuable asset to any company looking to enhance its performance and productivity.
In what ways has your company worked to reduce its environmental impact, and what results have you seen from these efforts?
Evan Tzivanakis : As the owner of my business, reducing our environmental impact has been a top priority for us. We have implemented several initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint, such as reducing paper waste by going digital, using energy-efficient lighting and appliances, and recycling materials.
In addition, we have also switched to eco-friendly packaging and shipping materials, and have encouraged our employees to adopt environmentally conscious practices, such as turning off lights and equipment when not in use, and carpooling or using public transportation to reduce their carbon footprint.
Through these efforts, we have not only reduced our environmental impact but have also seen several positive results, such as a reduction in energy and waste costs, and increased customer loyalty and engagement due to our sustainable practices. We believe that these initiatives not only benefit our business but also contribute to creating a better and healthier planet for everyone.
What challenges have you faced in implementing sustainable practices, and how have you overcome them?
Evan Tzivanakis : One of the biggest challenges has been the initial cost of implementing sustainable initiatives, such as investing in energy-efficient equipment or switching to eco-friendly materials. However, we have found that these investments have paid off in the long run through cost savings and increased customer loyalty.
Another challenge has been changing the behavior and habits of our employees. It can be challenging to get everyone on board with new practices and to maintain consistency in sustainable efforts. To overcome this, we have implemented training programs and have created a culture of environmental responsibility, where everyone is encouraged to contribute to our sustainability efforts.
Finally, we have faced challenges in finding eco-friendly suppliers and partners that align with our values and sustainability goals. To overcome this, we have thoroughly researched and vetted our suppliers and have developed strong relationships with those who share our commitment to sustainability.
Overall, we have found that implementing sustainable practices requires dedication, patience, and a willingness to adapt and innovate. By overcoming these challenges, we have been able to create a more sustainable and responsible business that we are proud of.
