Self-Made Multimillionaire Shares Essential Lessons for Entrepreneurial Greatness

Greenleaf Book Group

Being a successful entrepreneur is exhilarating, but it’s not for the faint of heart. In business today, being good is merely an entry fee. In order to thrive, you must be exceptional. Nobody knows this better than Leslie McIntyre-Tavella, author of the Amazon Bestseller Framing Success: 20 Essential Lessons for Achieving Entrepreneurial Greatness from a Self-Made Multimillionaire (An Inc. Original, Aug 24, 2021). At 22-years-old, with an eleventh-grade education and the odds stacked against her, McIntyre-Tavella put a troubled past behind her and started her first business, which she bootstrapped into a $20 million award-winning staffing firm. Now, she’s created a new firm, Culpeo HR, to help business leaders build best-in-class organizations by improving customer engagement, optimizing HR services, creating culture and team alignment, and establishing leadership development. In launching Culpeo, McIntyre-Tavella applies the actionable advice offered in Framing Success, demonstrating how to overcome the odds, choose a better life, and build a successful organization from the ground up. “This book is broken into seven parts, with twenty key lessons that I learned by working in the trenches of a small business. As a successful entrepreneur, you must remain committed and focused to your vision, adopt an unwavering commitment to your company values, and be unrelenting in your mission to success. To maintain the highest level of customer retention and satisfaction, you must remain laser focused on recruiting and retaining best-in-class talent,” McIntyre-Tavella says. “I promise you, if you consistently focus on the small details, never lower your standards, and exhaustively remain committed to these efforts, you will build a strong, sustainable business.” Framing Success, which achieved Amazon Bestseller status in several categories, including Strategic Planning, Entrepreneurship & Small Business, and Women & Business, highlights Leslie McIntyre-Tavella’s keys to entrepreneurial success, including how to build a strong foundation to construct a solid business, find and secure a rock-star crew through strategic and unconventional talent optimization practices, cut through the distractions and noise of a business and quickly get to the root issues, provide outstanding engagement for your customers, and articulate, share, and grow your vision. Now you can use the hard-earned, practical, and invaluable insights Leslie McIntyre-Tavella did to scale her business to create your own rewarding blueprint for entrepreneurial triumph and success.

About the Author: Leslie McIntyre-Tavella has devoted her entire career to people: counseling them, placing them in life-changing opportunities, and providing best-in-class talent to customers who pride themselves on “people first.” Leslie developed these skills by cultivating a culture that fostered teamwork and comradery, and she retained her employees twice as long as the industry standard. Finding, hiring, and retaining the right people is the secret sauce to building a solid foundation and the winning ingredient needed to succeed wildly! Leslie launched her first start-up organization thirty years ago to bring a different service paradigm to the recruiting and staffing industry. Her prior company became a $20 million company and won numerous awards, including first place in “Best Places to Work” and eleventh place for the Top Women-Owned Businesses in Connecticut.” Leslie is a progressive leader and entrepreneur who’s comfortable collaborating and engaging with C-suite executives in a wide range of industries. She has held leadership and membership roles in various industry groups, including a board position at Dress for Success and chairman for the Connecticut chapter of the American Staffing Association. Leslie has also written for several periodicals and magazines. After three years away from the staffing industry, Leslie had gained new insights on where there are gaps today in HR and optimization, customer engagement, culture and team alignment, and talent acquisition. Leslie’s new start-up focuses on managed services for human resources, customer engagement, and teaching firms how to optimize their talent pipeline. Culpeo HR, where culture meets people, partners with small businesses to enhance people, production, performance, and profitability. When Leslie is not spending time innovating and addressing customers’ needs, she is busy renovating homes, condos, and office buildings. She loves taking something that is shabby and rundown and giving it a new life. Leslie just finished her thirteenth renovation—a farmhouse and barn in Fairfield, Connecticut, where she currently resides with her husband. # # # More about Greenleaf Book Group Greenleaf Book Group is an independent publisher and distributor located in Austin, Texas, dedicated to empowering authors.

Tech cross-border M&A on record pace in First Half of 2021 according to data from Velocity Global and PitchBook

Velocity Global

Deal multiples return to 2019 levels Cross-border software deals skyrocket Cross-Border M&A Monitor: Tech Sector released today Cross-border tech merger and acquisition deals accelerated in the first half of 2021, on a record pace in transactional volume. That data from PitchBook was released today in the Cross-Border M&A Monitor: Tech Sector published by Velocity Global, the leading provider of global employment solutions. The late surge of activity in 2020 continued through the first half of this year with approximately 1,000 cross-border tech deals closed, for an aggregate of $139.9 billion. “The deal multiple increased in the first half of this year and returned to 2019 levels, which indicates investor confidence in global economic recovery,” said Rob Wellner, Velocity Global chief revenue officer. “Increased multiples drive an even greater need for pre-deal preparation and successful integration after close.” Software value already tops 2020 The value of cross-border M&A deals for Software companies in the first six months of 2021 already topped full-year values for 2020 at over $100 billion. “The pandemic accelerated digital transformations, funneling budgets to build or buy the necessary tools,” added Wellner. “The acquirers are tech and non-tech alike, with tech adding to their stack, and non-tech adding to their in-house capabilities.” Pandemic Operations Drive Cross-Border M&A Interest As evidenced by the increase in median deal size in cross-border tech M&A, dealmakers paid up with confidence. Cross-border acquisitions require businesses to navigate a distributed workforce, and the global pandemic prompted companies of all sizes to invest in the proper resources. “Integration will always have complexities like country-specific labor laws and regulations, but companies are more willing than ever to invest in cross-border diversification and leverage tools to manage a distributed workforce,” said Wellner. “Work from home is really no different than work from another country as it relates to workflow and employee engagement.” Download the Cross-Border M&A Monitor: Tech Sector here.

Cloud Conventions Introduces SafetyNet to Create a Virtual Backup Plan for Live Events

Convey Services

Cloud Conventions today introduced SafetyNet ™, a new program to provide a virtual event backup options for associations, tradeshows, event managers or trade groups that have a live event scheduled now or in the near future. SafetyNet provides a standby virtual event platform that can be activated if needed when attendance for a live event declines or if there is a requirement to pivot to an all-virtual program. A SafetyNet platform can be brought online in a matter of days without technical support or programming. Cloud Conventions is a sophisticated event management platform that redefines the attendee and exhibitor experience with a strong focus on delivering virtual and hybrid events, regardless of size or budget. “It seems like a repeat of 2020 as event managers, associations and other trade groups are struggling to decide if they should cancel their live event, shift to virtual or hybrid, or take other precautions to make attendees and exhibitors feel safe,” said Carolyn Bradfield, CEO of Cloud Conventions. “Any group hosting live events today needs a virtual backup plan that can be activated to ensure attendees and sponsors can participate in industry sessions, continuing education and still make connections that they would miss when they can’t attend in person.” SafetyNet maintains a low-cost Cloud Conventions virtual platform on standby behind a private login until required. It is hosted on a custom URL, is fully branded, customized and organized to host live or on-demand sessions, exhibitor and sponsor booths or provide a resource center for all event-related content. Attendees can be imported from a live event registration system and have their record transferred to SafetyNet including demographics and event access permissions. Sponsors are assigned a virtual booth template and configured to go live without technical assistance, in a matter of hours. “Now that live events have partially returned, many groups ask themselves if virtual events are worth it, so they only focus on their in-person event, often to their detriment,” added Bradfield. “A 2020 study of 1,000 respondents, ‘ Association Trends: From Disruption to Opportunity’ produced by Community Brands, details that having a virtual option for membership participation has changed from a nice-to-have to a must have. Some live events scheduled for the fall of 2021 are being abruptly cancelled due to on-going COVID risks. This is clearly an indicator that the pandemic is far from over. A SafetyNet option is the best insurance that the show will go on, no matter what.” SafetyNet is offered for a low, setup fee to create a fully branded and configured virtual environment. If the organizer chooses to go live with a hybrid or all-virtual event, the setup fee applies to the event package. Show managers can choose as much or as little assistance from Cloud Conventions to bring their event online quickly with all the features needed to educate and engage attendees. Having a virtual option guarantees a rewarding experience for attendees, better ROI for sponsors and ensures smoother event operation for organizers.

GET Group North America Teaming with Scytáles to Demonstrate Global Mobile Driver’s License Interoperability at AAMVA’s AIC 2021

GET Group North America

GET Group North America, an innovative developer of mobile ID technology with over 20 years of experience in secure government credentials, will be demonstrating GET Mobile ID and GET Mobile Verify alongside its international technology partner, Scytáles, at AAMVA’s 2021 International Conference. Together, the companies will be demonstrating how a mobile driver’s license (mDL) solution that is fully compliant with the ISO 18013-5 standard allows people to use their Mobile ID worldwide through secure, contactless interactions that also safeguard their privacy. Select attendees will be able to get their personalized mDL and travel between GET’s booth, representing America, and Scytáles’ booth, representing Sweden. These mDL holders will complete mock TSA, banking and age-based purchase transactions and collect giveaway items. “The successful adoption of large-scale mobile driver’s license adoption hinges not only on the ability for an mDL issued in one’s home state to be accepted across the USA, but also to be recognized internationally as a legal form of ID,” said David Kelts, director of product development, mobile ID, GET Group North America. “Creating a truly global mDL ecosystem requires technology that fully complies with the ISO standard for mobile ID, and that’s the full solution GET and Scytáles offer now and will be demonstrating.” “Many jurisdictions around the world are moving towards a mobile driver’s license offering and should make sure they’re choosing technology that adheres to internationally-recognized security and interoperability standards,” said Geoff Slagle, president & chief business development officer at Scytáles. “North Americans travel extensively. Investing time and resources in the transition to mDL could slow if jurisdictions don’t ensure their digital credentials comply with the larger ecosystem – and we’re very excited to demonstrate how that’s possible at AIC 2021.” The Utah Driver License Division (DLD) is currently conducting an mDL pilot using GET Group North America’s technology, making it the first in the country where both ID Issuer and businesses are fully ISO 18013-5-compliant. Utah Community Credit Union and Harmons Grocery have been among the first to pioneer implementation of verification technology that allows state-issued mDLs to be accepted without the subjectivity of visual inspection. mDL also facilitates totally contactless ID checks that put the citizen in control of the data they share based on the nature of the transaction. GET Group North America will be in booths 512 & 513 at the AAMVA Annual International Conference taking place August 31-September 2, 2021, in Denver, CO. Scytáles will be in neighboring booths 510 and 511. Representatives from the Utah Driver License Division will be able to share their experience piloting mDL technology. Scytáles will have a delegation from Europe to discuss the significance of global interoperability. Schedule a demo at the show here; or for media inquiries contact rita.murphy@svmpr.com. About GET Group North America GET Group North America and its partners develop, manufacture, and implement end-to-end solutions for secure physical and mobile credentials that enable government agencies, motor vehicle departments, municipalities law enforcement organizations, and other entities to leverage the latest in secure identity management technologies. From photo ID cards, driver’s licenses and passports, to mDLs and mIDs, GET Group NA delivers advanced issuance, verification and personalization capabilities that prevent identification fraud, accommodate diversified customer needs, and support the future of ID use cases.
