The Interview

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

Loren Howard :
When I was a kid, I was laser-focused on becoming a professional athlete. I dedicated my time to sports, striving to become the best I could be. Football opened up a world of possibilities, and I was awarded Freshman All-American Defensive End and Big Ten Defensive Freshman of The Year. In my sophomore year, I was All-Conference Defensive End. Unfortunately a career-ending injury changed my paths, and became an entrepreneur! Although my first venture didn’t succeed, it provided invaluable lessons about business. I was able to pick myself up and try again, and have now launched multiple eight-figure businesses in different industries. Each experience shaped my resilience and fueled my growth, and lead me to the success I have today.

How do you ensure effective communication and collaboration among remote team members? Can you share any specific tools or practices that have been particularly effective for your organization?

Loren Howard : Clear guidelines and consistent channels of communication, such as regular video meetings and organized email threads, ensure clarity and foster a positive work environment.

Maintaining work-life balance can be challenging in a remote work environment. What strategies do you recommend for remote employees to create boundaries between work and personal life? How can organizations support their employees in achieving a healthy work-life balance?

Loren Howard : One effective way to establish boundaries is by setting clear start and end times for work. By creating a consistent schedule, you can better manage your time and avoid the temptation of working round the clock.Remember, prioritizing self-care, engaging in activities you enjoy outside of work, and maintaining regular breaks throughout the day are key ingredients for a fulfilling remote work experience.
