He is the Board Chair of Patagonia and sits on The Nature Conservancy European Council. He co-authored the bestselling book Bulletproof Problem Solving: The One Skill That Changes Everything and The Imperfectionists: Strategic Mindsets for Uncertain Times.

Instead of striving for perfection and following traditional industry structures, it's important to be curious, gather diverse perspectives, and embrace uncertainty to find solutions from unexpected sources.

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Rob Levin. He is the co-founder and chairman of Work Better Now, a virtual assistant company providing talented remote professionals from Latin America for US and Canadian-based small and mid-sized businesses. He is also the managing member of the Oasis Strategy Group and CEO of RSL Media. 

Rob mentions that having an assistant is important for all business owners because it allows them to focus on strategy and high-level work instead of admin work. Additionally, having a virtual assistant turns out to be an amazing return on investment for the company because it saves time and money since the business owner can delegate tasks they don't enjoy or aren't good at.

In this episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast, I interview Joey Coleman. He is the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Never Lose a Customer Again, an award-winning speaker, and works with organizations around the world ranging from small startups to major brands. His new book, Never Lose an Employee Again: The Simple Path to Remarkable Retention, offers a proven framework for increasing employees retention, engagement, and in the process, profits.

Joey explains how companies should focus on the employee journey from the first day on the job. A new employee's first-day experience should be welcoming and inclusive, and companies should assign someone to be responsible for the entire journey from the first time the employee hears about the business until they're up and running a hundred days later. By doing so, retention numbers can significantly improve. It’s important to understand that we have humans who work at our company and celebrate them for their humanity, not only of their product.
