    How To Value An Equity Offer As An Employee (And Not Get Screwed In The Process)

    15:57

    If you’re listening to this episode chances are you have just been offered equity in the company you are working for or planning to work for. My intention with this episode is to prepare you for the questions to ask and how to value this offer. Standards and Pitfalls to consider when weighing an equity offer: 1. Think of points as a percentage 2. Vesting schedule 3. Double the time and ¼ the value Questions to ask yourself when thinking about accepting an equity offer: 1. Has this founder exited before 2. How long is the vesting schedule 3. Likelihood of an exit and your dilution 4. Product market fit? 5. Do I want to be here for 5 - 10 years? 6. Worst and best case scenario? I hope this episode helps to give you a little more insight into what equity is and what the outcome typically ends up being.

    3 Principles for "Expectations Management" and Expectations Setting

    11:06

    In this episode I discuss why managing expectations is important and how to properly set expectations in every area of your business and life.   I believe that almost all problems in business come down to one of three things: Mismet Expectations Unmet Expectations No Expectations at all!   Expectation Setting is at the beginning of the relationship and Expectation Management is ongoing.   I learned a lot about this process during my time at Student Painters through plenty of expectation setting conversations.   Always prioritize clear and upfront conversations. Have it sooner rather than later! Then people will always know here they stand and expectations can be set and in a lot of cases reset.   Check out my video on how to have difficult conversations: https://youtu.be/2pRTG6UzKjI​   WHEN IN DOUBT, OVER-COMMUNICATE!   Two of my favorite phrases when it come so this are: “Just to clarify” or “to be clear”   Then recap that difficult conversation with a written recap. Having it in writing is an absolute must.   SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel here: http://bit.ly/chandlerYT​   Check out what we're doing at Self Publishing School here: http://self-publishingschool.com​   Learn about booking me to speak here: https://youtu.be/K12hkOXaM3k​

    Float Tank and Cryotherapy - What it is and Why You Should Do It

    16:44

    Let’s chat about CryoTherapy AND Float Tanks. What the heck are they? I’m a big fan of self improvement. I do so many things to try to be better. The two most unconventional things I do are: 1. Float Tank (sensory deprivation tank) 2. CryoTherapy I get asked about this ALL the time so in this episode I’m going to walk through 1.What are CryoTherapy and Float Tanks? 2. What are the benefits? 3. Why you should try them? Interestingly enough these two things are very opposite of each other but there are so many benefits. Float Therapy: When it comes to Float Therapy there is a time commitment of 60-90 minutes. This is where I go when I have lots of decisions to make and I need time to just sit and think. I do this because it’s just good old fashioned silence that allows me to process things! The biggest benefit of Float Therapy? Yep, you guessed it, mental health! CryoTherapy: As we said this is the opposite of Float Therapy but it is equally as beneficial. At its core you’re revitalizing your body by bringing it to super cold temps. The most surprising benefit is that you can actually burn up to 300 calories per session! But more importantly cryotherapy has helped me so much with my back! We cover a few more benefits of Cryotherapy but needless to say I strongly believe that you should try it! My encouragement to you is to try one of these things this week! Often they are in the same building or very close in proximity to each other. Let me know if you’ve ever tried this before and what was your take away! If you haven’t tried it are you open to it?
