Four Tips to Level Up Your Business

The new year invites you to reflect on old practices, abandoning those that no longer serve your purposes and embracing those that bring the changes you seek. What daily procedures add unnecessary stress and “fat” to your operations, and which can propel your organization to the next level?

Every enterprise is different, requiring leaders to spend time in mindfulness. They must examine where they want their organization to go and the best path for getting there, keeping in mind current societal trends and realities such as a changing climate.

Savvy business leaders draw inspiration from Taoist wu wei principles, meeting the demands of the world as it is instead of fighting like salmon swimming upstream in a futile attempt to change the course of unyielding tides. Embracing these principles entails a seismic mindset shift from the western philosophy of “the hardest path brings the most rewards.” Still, it can result in greater success and happiness among your team. How? Here are four tips to level up your business in 2023.

1. Take Maximum Advantage of Technology Solutions

Technology changes for the average person in the blink of an eye. It moves even more quickly in the business world as profit-driven economic models demand innovations for large organizations able to pay the price. The result? A world of apps and programs for streamlining your daily operations while maximizing profits.

Today’s AI goes far beyond keeping your company running on schedule. It can map your retail stores, advising you of the optimal product placement for maximizing sales. Builders can use virtual reality in construction project planning, but this isn’t the only application of such software. It also enables you to immerse clients in an interactive experience to highlight the benefits of your services.

Even the humble business card has evolved. As the world goes paperless, more organizations employ an electronic version that immediately stores your contact information in a prospective client’s cellphone, ensuring you’re only a click away when they need you.

What other solutions should you consider? Here are four ways technology solutions can help you level up your business in 2023:

  • Smart contracts: Does it seem like every legal contract covers the same territory? Smart contracts keep the essential language intact for legal compliance while allowing you to customize terms for specific clientele.
  • Advanced positioning technology: Keep track of where your packages are in transit. Instead of providing customers with rough delivery estimates, you can pinpoint their product’s arrival and tell them where it is in the supply chain at any given time.
  • Cloud technology: These solutions allow diverse teams to connect over broad geographic areas while keeping your information secure. They also minimize downtime due to inoperable devices.
  • Blockchain technology: A blockchain is a decentralized ledger for recording transactions. While the financial applications are obvious, this technology also plays crucial roles in health care when protecting patient information and ensuring continuity of care.

2. Keep the Human Element First and Foremost

The COVID-19 pandemic gave birth to the Great Reset, and businesses and individuals are still struggling to integrate their daily routines and operations into this new reality. While the media abounds with stories of conflicts between C-suite executives and their workforce, they ignore the opportunity inherent in this moment to redefine the business world and make it more human and sustainable.

Lee Iacocca said years ago that business is, after all, nothing more than a bunch of human relationships. However, many leaders need to pay more attention to the one they have with their staff. For example, multiple companies have seen top talent flee after issuing seemingly arbitrary “return to the office” orders amid soaring profits when their workforce is happier and more productive from home.

Before issuing such edicts, mindfully reflect on what you hope to accomplish. Is it increased collaboration? If so, could you meet that objective by offering a more flexible hybrid schedule? Decrease expenses by exchanging pricy single-use downtown real estate and instead investing in less costly co-working spaces for occasional meetings.

If your only objective is to exercise more power and control over your staff, reflect carefully on that decision. Why make more unnecessary work for yourself if the numbers show remote performance offers equivalent productivity, especially if it results in top talent leaving for less capricious shores? You could be killing the proverbial golden-egg-laying goose. Reality shows the following benefits of remote and hybrid work:

  • Fewer commuters: Resulting in fewer emissions and less stress from battling traffic.
  • Improved productivity: While study numbers vary, most show a significant increase in overall productivity when employees choose their workspace.
  • Decreased sick days: Telecommuting allows workers to perform on those days when they can handle light desk duty but don’t want to infect the entire office.
  • Fewer costs: Pricy lease agreements aside, it’s far less expensive for businesses to allow telecommuting. It costs money to secure the premises and run the lights and heat beyond rent.

3. Embrace Environmental Responsibility

The evidence for climate change is evident everywhere in changing weather patterns. These disruptions will only grow more severe if people fail to take action now, costing businesses untold thousands in reparation costs in coming years and taking an unimaginable toll in terms of human suffering.

Furthermore, embracing sustainable efforts can drive profits. Several recent studies indicate consumers will pay more for eco-friendliness. They also prefer to do business with companies that share their values, such as environmental consciousness and corporate responsibility.

What can you do to green your organization? Much depends on your budget and objectives, but these ideas can help you defray costs while improving your environmental footprint:

  • Use local suppliers: Build your reputation with other business leaders in your community while reducing shipping costs and the resulting emissions from transport.
  • Go paperless: Digital signage reduces the need for printing, and email or collaboration apps can replace old-fashioned memos, improving data security while reducing waste.
  • Make environmental upgrades: Is it time for a new building? Consider LEED-certified builders to make your new structure comply with the highest environmental standards. Putting in parking? A covered lot with solar panels lets electric vehicle owners charge their rides while at work, keeps customers cooler and provides surplus green energy to the grid.
  • Set up green initiatives: You can increase community visibility by participating in local cleanups or sponsoring such efforts.

4. Interact With Your Customers 

The final tip to level up your business in 2023 is perhaps the easiest — ask your customers what they want. This simple task alone can propel your name above and beyond the rest in a world where many products don’t even come with instructions anymore, let alone a dedicated customer service line where confused buyers can get support.

How can your customers reach you? Make it clear how they can get in touch by providing this information on product packaging and your company website. Consider contracting with a third-party organization to provide telephone and chat support.

Finally, use algorithms to your advantage. It’s a snap to add “like/dislike” buttons or include electronic feedback forms that generate reports enabling you to judge the popularity of various offerings.

What Is Additional Coming Back In 2022 For Bitcoin?

Therefore, a person needs to have complete information about the background of Bitcoin because only then would they be able to do everything very carefully. Let us have a brief chat on this critical topic.

Guaranteed resources for the environment

There is an excellent growth rate in the digital market as it has drawn the attention of everybody towards the environment as the currency is consuming it. On average, people say that whenever mining happens in digital currency to generate new coins for the people, they need to have a certain amount of electric resources because it is the main requirement of doing that process. Bitcoin cryptocurrency is being created when it is applied with the help of high-power computer technology and needs to solve puzzles with the help of energy.

It is said that the person needs the fuel to complete their necessary mining activity, and the energy consumed is around 0 to 5%. So many things are related to digital currency and directly linked to the environment. That is why people are talking about it, and there are a lot of debates that are also happening around the globe. Bitcoin cryptocurrency is trying its best to control global warming and provide good renewable sources.

It is an essential piece of information that everyone should know that the first digital token which paid a lot of potential towards global warming and the planet was the Bitcoin cryptocurrency, as it does not want to harm the environment. Many creatures live in the open air, and Bitcoin ensures they are not affected by their working process. Many things are being done by digital currency as the use of many good techniques that can help solve environmental problems.

Central banks converting themselves into the digital Bank

It is another trendy thing attracting people towards Bitcoin trading because they know that the traditional banks are converting themselves into digital so they can provide all the good stuff to the people. Therefore, they can do everything very quickly without facing many problems. Bitcoin cryptocurrency has solved a lot of issues that were being tackled by the people in the traditional banking system, and that is the primary reason why people prefer using it in daily life.

As we know that in Central banks, the control of money is given in the hands of the officials, but in the digital one, the entire control and management of the currency are being done by the owner itself, and they have complete information about each and everything which is going on in this system. It is possible because of the transparency factor provided by the Bitcoin cryptocurrency. People are pleased because a single update does not miss them as Bitcoin keeps notifying them.

Moreover, many countries have started testing the results they are getting through digital banking, and they are delighted with the response they have gained from the citizens using it. There is a lot of good news coming from Bitcoin cryptocurrency. People are also excited to get much more from bed coin and are basically in an intermediate position. The transformation of digital currency has brought a perfect revolution in the market, and it has changed many things for a better reason.

Live and Breathe the Film Industry: Israeli’s Star Artist Eva Lanska’s take on the Film Industry and NFT Spaces

The NFT space is a haven for art lovers and artists all over the world. Our recent conversation with the Israeli star Eva Lanska provides an intimate understanding of her experience in the NFT space and the film industry. Being an Israeli film director and artist,  she sells and promotes her work in the NFT space while also working as a film director in her Tel Aviv studio. Eva claims that film direction and art have been her passions since the age of seven, but it has taken her twenty years to realize her dream. She discusses her struggles as a female director and artist, highlighting the challenges she has faced in the industry. “Art, film, this is what we choose, these are our lives, one day the door will open and we will become who we want to be, and we will take our place,” she encourages women in the industry. Eva reveals that she does not come from an influential family of Hollywood personalities and as such, she has had to work her way into the Hollywood family.

The story behind the exceptional woman reveals the reality in Hollywood. “If you do not come from a famous Hollywood family, you have to work extra hard to get noticed in the industry…because the Hollywood inner circle is a very small, closely knit family,” Eva states. “Before getting noticed, one has to live and breathe Hollywood,” she confesses. We all admire the stunning Israeli artist for navigating the difficult path into Hollywood’s inner circle. “Talent is simply not enough, knowledge is not enough; you must become one with the community,” Eva says, possibly the most candid advice she has for people trying to make it in the entertainment industry.

The conversation quickly shifts to the NFT space and what it means to artists around the world. Eva describes the NFT space as a platform that offers artists the freedom of expression. At first, she finds it intimidating, particularly as a woman new to the platform. It becomes even more intimidating for her when she meets award-winning scholars, but she overcomes her fears and eventually establishes a reputable name in the industry. Eva also expresses her dissatisfaction with the platform’s marginalization of women, claiming that their projects often take longer to be approved or funded. “We can only go forward, never look back, and we are gonna go till we achieve,” she encourages women in the industry. “Stopping, giving up is not an option,” she adds, “we have to keep going and moving forward.”

Miami Art Week is a celebration and appreciation of the world’s best art collections, it is no surprise that Eva Lanska’s collection is featured. The NFT exhibition will display some of Eva’s large-scale sculptures and paintings, along with Michael Benisty, WhIsBe, Noah Becker, Lauren Baker, Maxim Zhestkov, and more, at the Bagatelle Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Photographic works from Lanska’s Gematria collection and The Existential Choice are featured exclusively at the NFT event. For the opening event, Eva collaborated with SmartMedia to produce a special limited edition (1000) NFT from her Gematria series called Gematria 596. She proudly describes this piece as a symbol of purity. Eva’s art is celebrated for the messages it conveys, she has previously used art to address gender equality and societal injustices. This event serves as a reminder of the powerful woman Eva Lanska is and how her art will leave a lasting impression on the world.

In a statement, Opus Chief Executive Karl Fowler said they’re excited to share a sense of ownership of these cars and photography artworks with fans who have followed Grand Prix history.

“We are extremely proud to be partnering with Glorious for what is a momentous event for Opus with our natural progression into the digital Web3 space and our inaugural NFT release with the Ecclestone Grand Prix & Grand Prix Trilogy Collections. 

“The Ecclestone Grand Prix Collection has a truly special story, the romance of the large format camera, the first time this unique F1 Grand Prix car collection being captured in this way with so many incredible and historically important cars, we felt strongly that everyone should have the opportunity to appreciate and indeed own a part of the collection for themselves. 

“What better way to reach a global fan base and community whilst retaining the beauty of the Grand Prix cars than through the digital medium of an NFT release. 

“To be able to partner with the best in this field was the deciding factor for us and with Glorious leading the way in the NFT art arena we are super excited about this partnership release of this historically important NFT collection.”

Glorious Digital Chief Executive, Tim Harper, says it’s an honour to be working on a project that further immortalises motorsport history.

And now, thanks to Opus and Bernie, we are proud to be releasing artworks that have been inspired by that history,” says Harper.

HIVE’S FASHION TAKEOVER

The month of September is a yearly indicator for change. It’s mostly for the seasons, but for fashion, it’s brought something extra. The advent of NFT, a digital fashion, has transformed the retail industry in recent times. Shows like HIVEMIND, inspired by purveyors SAIbysai and This Man’s Brand, provided a visual depiction of this phygital trend. Featuring innovative NFT drops in tandem with a live catwalk, the production catapulted spectators into a new age of style.

SAlbysai’s phygital NFT collection with art by Danica Robinson, dropped during her first runway show on September 16 in NYC. The NFT project was produced by Hive and is available on the foundation marketplace.  The event sponsored by Hive and Satoshi’s Closet included a tangible fashion presentation by SAIbysai. Lastly, we held a pilot screening of HIVEMIND by Hive–which recently won “Best NFT Film/Video” at the iHollywood Film Festival. Subsequently, Hive released their WLT skin which permitted access to additonal NFTs and upcoming exclusive events.

The fusion of fashion and technology was groundbreaking. It sparked a deeply rooted conversation from an acclaimed panel of professionals: the founder of Satoshi’s Closet, Michael Pastko; founder of Hive, Bee Davies; and designer of Made by Mena, Chris Mena. Both participants and guests tremendously benefited from this mind-blowing presentation.

Another spectacular event was Holotopia. It’s a new XR fashion event which took place September 24 in Long Beach at Thunder Studios. Of late, This Man’s Brand, powered by Hive, dropped a phygital NFT collection with art fabricated by Chris Arvan. Lastly, cutting-edge AR technology was exhibited from NFT Marketplace DRESSX while XR production was showcased from Holotopia’s team at Metajax, form-u.la and Thunder Studios. The show was streamed live on Decentralland and Twitch, allowing attendees a whimsical behind the scenes peek into the new world order.
