In this episode of Offbeat Business TV, host Susan Hamilton interviews Rekesha Pittman about her book The East Formula, which stands for entrepreneur, author, speaker, trainer. She says when we connect all four together, we take our success from local to global, which makes us an expert. Publishing is a big part of this. When looking at the marketplace, most times success is not defined as understanding what not to do, but that is paramount.  Failures can be a great education.  “The only way to fail is to tap out or give up,” says Rekesha.  How we look at our business and package it up is what leads to success. The most successful businesses are interacting with others.  We are beings with energy and we thrive on the energy of others to be collaborative, innovative, and healthy.  When we sit behind a screen all the time, we remove the synergy that brings creativity.Rekesha admits she goes against the grain and says, “Staying in your lane is aimed for those who choose to remain bound to the ground.  With the advent of change and technology and the way we’ve been forced to do it, what lane?” Don’t get too stuck to the way you do things and be open to making changes.    People are now able to sell books and leverage books. Leveraging books allows us to communicate with people where they are.  The vision is bigger than you think it is.  A book can take your role or knowledge, give it a vision, and you birth a unique communication to others.   If you don’t have a business model, it’s hard for you to do anything else. Whatever your business is, create a book - use FAQ’s that you get asked all the time and answer them in your book.  If you speak at events or do webcasts, transcribe your speech or talk, clean it up, and you have several pages worth for your book. A book is a lead magnet. Rekesha says that we need the expertise from each person on a unique level.  This is the perfect time to write. The EAST Signature Retreat event will be held in June 2021 which brings entrepreneurs together to discuss, network, and act on their business.  People that have attended the retreat in the past say that they learned how to implement their vision. You can go EAST with Rekesha by going to The EAST Formula, text goeast to 33222 and receive masterful membership from Rekesha.Enjoy the OBBM Network business talk show format on 24/7 OBBM Radio, or subscribe to the OBBM Network Podcast on Apple Podcasts or Google Play Music.

Audrey Wallace, Executive Director of Sachse's 5 Loaves Food Pantry explains the face of hunger today, and the growing needs of fixed income seniors, lower income wage earners, and others who are simply going through crisis. Seated2Serve Host Jeff Bickerstaff talks with Audrey about the 16 local churches, rotaries, Lion's Clubs, and various organizations that volunteer for everything from supplies to shelving and logistics. Since September of 2015, 5 Loaves Food Pantry has been doling out weekly groceries, and additional monthly staples boxes, and personal care boxes for the people experiencing these needs. Now they offer a diaper bank, and Coffee With a Purpose - roasted, ground, bagged, and sold - on premise, to bring operating revenue into the mission. These days, Wylie Flower and Gift, Wylie Printing, and Massage Bliss in Sachse, among others, are selling Coffee With a Purpose. One $10 pound of coffee equals 28 lbs of food. Volunteer duties are dependent on the day you want to serve. Special needs students get to work at the pantry to learn life and occupational skills they will eventually use to live as independently as possible.Area businesses are encouraged to participate through coffee sales, donations, or volunteers, to keep this great work going. Go to 5LoavesFoodPantry.org to get started, find 5 Loaves on Facebook, or call 469-767-8071 for more information.Seated2Serve is sponsored by:Bacon Roofing (972) 772-1999Jeanie Marten Real Estate (972) 414-0719Bickerstaff Insurance and Financial Services, (972) 771-4992Jeff Bickerstaff has worked with the city councils of Richardson, Murphy, Forney, and Garland, and currently holds place 6 in Sachse, Texas.

Meet Shane Hodge, owner of Wylie Nutrition and Sachse Nutrition, a new and smart way to bring health and nutrition to the community. Herbalife Nutrition Products have made a big comeback, and with 3 stores in Wylie and one in Sachse, Shane is enjoying the new direction. Seated2Serve Host Jeff Bickerstaff asks the hard questions about 'choosing healthy.'Everyone has a nutritional need, Shane points out its just a matter of communicating the products that support a customer's goals - all through engaging in conversation. With a 'healthy smoothie bar', people can come in and sit down and try flavors while discussing different aspects of nutrition. It's real life coaching, not a strict environment. If it's pizza that you enjoy, set yourself up with a healthy lifestyle so you can enjoy pizza without the setbacks. When people enter the store, they get a new experience - like the 'Chubby Hubby', full of things that sound decadent - but in fact are sweetened with stevia and very good for you. So is it all about a smoothie shake? No. We all know there are things we SHOULD do, and things we should not do - it's hard! There's an aspect of Shane's business that's about personal development. Successful people think a certain way. Engaging in the process of personal development has changed the way he thinks, and he's been able to give that back. Eating is a very personal subject, and often the conversations he's able to have with people give them tools to want to make better decisions.Go to Sachse Nutrition at 7340 Hwy 78, Ste 250, Sachse, Texas 75048 to check out the 'healthy smoothie bar', and engage with them on Facebook and Instagram.

Host Jeff Bickerstaff talks with Express Employment Professionals local Dallas - Irving Penny Gilden-Yunker to find out how staffing improves business. Today's number one issue for most employers is finding and keeping talent. From entry level positions to more detailed job descriptions, finding the right help when you need it takes enormous amounts of research and screening.

Penny walks us through a well-thought out hiring process and shows us where we might be missing a step.Express Employment Professionals has offices around the country, and several serving the DFW area. Talk to Penny to find out how outsourcing your hiring process will save you time and money - while limiting risk. Staffing your company with qualified people will help you grow your business wisely, but the trick is understanding how to create a job description that accurately portrays what you need accomplished. It's not as straight-forward as you might think! Listen in to this episode of Seated2Serve to learn some of the ways we accidentally draw from a pool of candidates that were never qualified for your needs in the first place.

Conversations with nonprofit board members bring those issues front and center so  we can be prepared as we walk out a well-designed life. In the local sector, many nonprofits exist that have been grown at the same time as one's business.Susan brings up the importance of cyber security and how today's companies should be looking at insurance policies holistically because it's possible to be exposed in various areas you thought were covered.

Host Jeff Bickerstaff talks with Angela Mattingly with The Avenues of Park Forest Assisted Living about long term care for aging parents. Angela describes the community provided at The Avenues, and how easy it is to learn about the care offered there. Assisted living communities are not nursing homes, and people want to preserve their parents' lifestyles as long as possible, free from curfews and rules. Angela explains that family members often feel guilt making this decision, concerned that parents will lose their independence. In fact, if parents are no longer are doing well living independently, family members can relax knowing they have created a safe environment for independence for an enhanced life. Angela invites us to join The Avenues for activities and meals to get comfortable and prepared for the journey ahead. A good way to start this conversation is to invite your parent to come out for lunch. Jeff points out that when a parent recoils at the idea of moving into an assisted living center, it's important to guide rather than force a decision. How do you know when it might be time to look at long term care for aging parents? Not taking medications appropriatelyNot safe at home anymoreNeed assistance during the dayWhat about the cost? Jeff says this is a sobering realization. What should family members be considering?Making a plan early onHonest conversation about what they really needReach out to Angela at 972-247-2226, and reach out to Jeff to learn options available to pay for long term care.

Host Jeff Bickerstaff talks with local fitness expert, Clint Fuqua, about everything from fad diets and what's behind them, to taking reasonable care of your body for long term success. It's important for local family businesses to know they can reverse damage due to stress and poor habits. For many in the U.S., tackling health concerns has been a giant that's gotten out of control. Clint reminds us that the small, consistent steps lead to overall improvement, which is a much more manageable approach then trying to tackle the giant.Branded 'The Health Engineer', Clint has been working with DFW businesses for 25 years, ranging from supplement formulation to individual performance at the gym. As a sponsor for the American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure, St. Baldrick's Foundation, 22Kill, and Guardian For Heroes Foundation, Clint has been instrumental in getting the word out about health, and walking the walk.To work with Clint, order his books, or watch previous self-produced programs, go to ClintFuqua.com.

In this episode of Seated2Serve, Regional Director Mindy Willis with Civitas Senior Living talks with Host Jeff Bickerstaff about how senior and assisted living has improved over the years. While adult children of seniors are most likely to be searching for assisted living options, senior living is quite different. Seniors ready to enjoy the benefits of socialization, exercise, and entertainment can do so without the burdens of home repair and maintenance. Mindy describes the Civitas environment and how the services and benefits often outweigh the cost and responsibilities associated with living in the home. Meeting the needs of the resident at whatever level they require is a comfort to both the senior and their families. Memory care is yet another sensitive discussion, and Mindy describes how Civitas supports residents to enjoy a full life, celebrating their journey and keeping them happy and safe. Laundry, groceries, transportation, medications, phone - when everything is provided or made easily available depending on the resident needs, an independent lifestyle is enjoyable for as long as possible for the journey ahead. When it comes to payment for senior living and assisted living clients, there are numerous ways to ensure loved ones are cared for. Income-based assistance can run as low as $800/mo, and active senior living can be accommodated for as low as $2600/mo, and often costs less than living in the home. Jeff learns 'Cruise Ship' rates and more intensive care can be quite costly and run $4-6K+ so it's important to be aware of options while they are most affordable and can be arranged. What is the best way to prepare for supporting your parent through this scenario? Understand their financial situation, and talk with your insurance agent for guidance well before its needed - because that's when it's less expensive. Education is power, and today it's not necessary to leave your loved ones to less than optimal care. CivitasSeniorLiving.com Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

In this episode of Seated2Serve, host Jeff Bickerstaff talks with John Bacon, owner of local DFW Bacon Roofing, about the roofer-insurance relationship on behalf of homeowners.  In the roofing business there are widely held misunderstandings about how to get a great deal on a roof repair or replacement.  Most homeowners have a difficult time telling the real thing from a fraud, especially when it looks like they can whittle the price or deductible down.Who doesn't want a great deal on an expensive replacement? Every roofer knows their customer wants to come out ahead. A trustworthy roofing company will take the time to outline the situation for the homeowner, and work with their insurance agent to make sure every necessary structural, functional, and cosmetic need is met.Have trouble trusting that roofer-insurance relationship? Listen in, this was eye-opening for the entire studio audience. What you think is a great deal could very well be an overpriced hunk of junk, coming in at a price they'll have to cut serious corners to perform.To connect with Bacon Roofing, go to BaconRoofing.com, and find them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
