We are experiencing a significant worldwide health crisis, the coronavirus which has killed over 200,000 people in the US at the time of this recording.  We now wear masks to protect ourselves from this virus, work at home, not socializing, and living more in isolation than ever before.

This takes a toll, even on the healthiest individuals.  But, it’s not just the current state we are in that is impacting mental health.  It existed long before the pandemic and will exit after.

Today a please to have Sally Spencer-Thomas here with us to discuss mental health in the workplace and home.  This is a timely topic as September is also Suicide Prevention Month.

Sally is a Psychologist and International Mental Health & Suicide Prevention Impact Entrepreneur and Keynote Speaker.

In the world of startups getting a business off the ground is not easy.  There is so much work that goes into developing the plans, product, testing, etc. etc., yet in 60 seconds or less, that dream can come to an end.

 

Why, because their investor pitch didn’t go so well.  This may have been the result of the entrepreneur themselves…or in many cases, their pitch deck didn’t communicate and the brilliance of their idea got lost in the sea of pages, numbers, and rambling that caused the potential investor to say to themselves, next!

 

At the Café, Jasmine Foroutan, CEO of Pitch Genius joins me to offer up some advice on what a great and effective pitch deck should include.

I was inspired by a movie I recently watched called The Ultimate Gift. It’s based on a book written by Jim Stovall.  Without giving the premise away, there are 12 gifts discussed in the movie that I believe are gifts we have all given, received, or wish we had.  Please listen in as I believe you will find this conversation relevant given the times we are living in.  Hopefully, in the end, you will find this is my gift to you!
