Would You Hire An Entrepreneur For Your Executive Team?

first_imgRelated Posts How Connected Communities Can Bolster Your Busi… 2. Mix And Match For The Best FitWhen hiring for the executive team it is important to find people with personalities and skills that complement the strengths of those who are already on the team. People often gravitate to hiring individuals who have the same strengths and weaknesses as the hiring manager or team. The result is a team of like-minded people who may work well together, but it also means that the weak areas will not be addressed by any team member. It is important to consider who is already on the team, what are those people’s strengths and weaknesses, and what type of additions would benefit the group. If the team already has an entrepreneurial mind on board, selecting an individual with complementary skills will complete the team best. – Alexandra Mayzler, Thinking Caps Tutoring 3. Yes, But Beware Their AppetiteThe entrepreneurial spirit is valuable in almost every line of work these days. “Problem-solver with a sense of personal responsibility” fits into nearly every job description there is. However, this mentality often comes with an insatiable appetite for growth. This is, of course, great when it comes to education, reaching goals, working long hours and more. But the same is often true when it comes to compensation. I’ve worked with several entrepreneurs who were never satisfied with what they earned and it was personally draining and obnoxiously distracting. Here are my two suggestions for a successful outcome: One, tie their pay to personal performance. Two, have a very candid conversation about compensation throughout the hiring process so expectations are forged realistically. – Kent Healy, The Uncommon Life 4. Partner, Don’t HireThose with the entrepreneurial spirit work best when they have a sense of ownership in what they’re working on. If you try to “hire” a person like this in the traditional sense, chances are they won’t bust their butts for you like they would if you partnered with them and gave them either equity, or at the very least, profit sharing. – Travis Steffen, WorkoutBOX Entrepreneurs and business owners claim to be hunting for more “entrepreneurial” talent these days – critical thinkers who are willing to take risks, wear multiple hats and most of all, lead. But are startup founders really hiring entrepreneurs, or just ambitious team players? What’s the difference, anyway?To find out, we asked eight successful entrepreneurs from the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) to share what they really look for in an executive team member – and how to nurture those “entrepreneurial” team members on day one. 1. Striking The BalanceWhen building your executive team, choosing a fellow entrepreneur can work out well. However, the issue is more complex than just that. I recommend the following two questions to know if you have the right person in mind: One, is the person just like you? That’s not always a good thing. A risk taker may need someone who is more cautious to balance them out. An analytical person may need someone with great creativity. A technical person may need a charismatic figurehead. It’s all about striking the balance. Two, do you share trust and values? You must respect each other to grow side-by-side. If you can be open and honest, you will make a great team and no hurdle will make you fall on your face. You may not always have the same vision, but open conversations will help you come together. – Spencer Gerrol, SPARK Experience Design AI Will Empower Leaders, Not Replace Them Tags:#startups center_img How to Cultivate the Skill of Being a Creative … scott gerber How to Meet the Demands of the Socially Conscio… 5. Founder Or Employee?Founders absolutely need to be entrepreneurial. Your co-founder needs to believe in the vision, work hard during nights and weekends, and need to feel personally invested into the company. On the other hand, an executive does not necessarily need to be entrepreneurial. A professional that steps into an established company with systems and operations must only steer the ship in the right direction. An established company does not have as many bumps and turns as a startup, which means the executives you bring on board does not have to be entrepreneur – they need to be able to execute well on the work that they were brought in to do. At the beginning, bring on board an entrepreneur; for an established company, bring on board an experienced professional that loves stability. – Jay Wu, Best Drug Rehabilitation 6. Accept The ChallengeHiring someone with an entrepreneurial mindset (other actual entrepreneurs are undoubtedly creating their own firms) is a great way to gain a new perspective on your business, as well as welcome competing ideas, inventive brainstorming sessions and new connections. Those who fear competition on their own executive team are missing the larger point of being an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurialism is not about ego – in fact, to be successful, entrepreneurs must check their ego at the door. The wisest investment a young company can make is in its talent – so don’t be afraid to hire a bold, inquiring and inventive mind to your team. If this person challenges you, accept the challenge. You and your company will be better for it. – Zach Cutler, Cutler Group 7. Stabilizers vs. EntrepreneursHire people who will complement you. I am fortunate to have executive team members with entrepreneurial spirits, who thrive while wearing multiple hats and are driven by the challenge of building something new. At the same time, however, the members of my executive team would not necessarily consider themselves “entrepreneurs.” Instead, they are stabilizers. Their strengths lie in building the systems and structures needed to sustain a growing organization, and they maintain a strong sense of realism when vision and ambition get out of hand. Their contributions have been crucial in helping our nonprofit transition from untested startup to established partner. – Garrett Neiman, CollegeSpring 8. Establish An Exit PathIt’s a bit of a double-edged sword; you hire the entrepreneur because they’re innovative and can take an idea and run. On the other hand, they’re innovative and can take an idea and run, so they’re more than capable of taking your idea and running it themselves. It’s best to hire an entrepreneur to build in the beginning stages, but make sure that the expectations and roles are clear. Establish a clear exit plan for the people you hire. If they’re a true entrepreneur, they will get burned out on your idea, anyway, and want to do something themselves – you can never make an employee out of an entrepreneur. – Jordan Guernsey, Molding BoxThe Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) is an invite-only nonprofit organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs. In partnership with Citi, the YEC recently launched #StartupLab, a free virtual mentorship program that helps millions of entrepreneurs start and grow businesses via live video chats, an expert content library and email lessons.last_img read more

4 Easy Ways to Make Your Drone Footage More Cinematic

first_imgThere’s more that goes into capturing cinematic drone footage than just buying the right aircraft. Let’s take a look at some aerial cinematography tips.Top image from ShutterstockThere’s no denying that beautiful drone footage can add a tremendous amount of production value to your film project. After all, up until just a few years ago, aerial cinematography was reserved for only the highest budget films and commercial projects.Cost-effective drones like the DJI Phantom 3 and Inspire 1 have opened up possibilities for filmmakers on a budget to achieve Hollywood blockbuster-looking results. That said, many indie productions end up actually hurting their production value by using drones, because they ignore the following 4 tips:1. Understand Your Camera’s LimitationsThe vast majority of affordable drone cameras don’t perform particularly well in certain conditions – namely low light. Do camera tests with your drone before using it on your next project to know its breaking point, and never just assume it’ll perform well in low-light situations. If you truly need a low-light aerial camera, consider renting a bigger rig that can handle a RED or similar camera.Here’s a video featuring the DJI Phantom 3 at ISO 1600. Clearly the overall quality of the image isn’t ideal:2. Keep Your Camera Moves in CheckJust because you can operate your drone with precision, doesn’t mean that every drone shot you use needs to be elaborate. Sometimes the most effective drone shots are still, hovering aerial shots that offer a unique perspective or angle. Use camera moves only as needed, and know that any camera movement says something to your audience about where to look or what to feel. Always approach this tastefully.3. Be Efficient in the EditImage from ShutterstockMany first-time drone filmmakers have a tendency to overuse their aerial footage in the edit, since it’s still very much a novelty for them. Always remember that less is more with drone footage. That is, unless you’re shooting an entire short film on a drone or completing some sort of specialty shot, of course. In most cases, you’re going to be better off using the drone footage more sparsely, which will also allow you to choose only the best moments for your film.4. Use Film EmulationAs sharp as many stock drone cameras may be, they often tend to have more of a video look to them when compared to traditional cinema cameras. This can certainly be offset by doing some light color grading in post, but I’d always recommend going the extra mile and using film emulation on the footage to help it look more cinematic. FilmConvert is my personal favorite option for emulating the film look, and the video below is a great example of what’s possible with their software:Got any tips for your fellow drone pilots? What do you think is the key to great aerial footage? Let us know in the comments below!last_img read more

A’s Overtake Yankees, 7-4

first_imgNEW YORK — Even when they have a lead lately, the New York Yankees can’t hold it. And the way things are going, beating just about anyone appears to be a tall order — let alone the best team in the American League.Yoenis Cespedes homered twice, Josh Donaldson hit a tiebreaking shot in the seventh inning off newcomer Jose Ramirez, and the Oakland Athletics overcame a four-run deficit to defeat New York 7-4 the night of June 4 for their fifth straight victory.“We had our chances to add on and we weren’t able to do it,” Yankees Manager Joe Girardi said. “The guys are doing everything they can, but right now we just aren’t getting it done.”The highest-scoring team in the majors this season, the A’s will go for a three-game sweep June 5. They are 12-3 against New York since July 19, 2012.Two pieces of good news for the Yankees: Masahiro Tanaka is scheduled to start the series finale, and Carlos Beltran is expected back in the lineup.Girardi said Beltran will probably be used exclusively as a designated hitter for a while to protect his right elbow. The switch-hitting right fielder was placed on the 15-day disabled list May 15 because of a bone spur.Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits, including an early three-run homer, but the Yankees (29-29) matched a season worst with their fourth consecutive defeat. They’ve been outscored 21-0 from the seventh inning on during the slide.Derek Jeter made a costly error and New York dropped to 1-5 on a seven-game homestand with its 12th loss in the last 16 at Yankee Stadium.Donaldson connected off Ramirez, who was making his major league debut. Cespedes also had three hits to help the A’s move a season-best 15 games over .500 at 37-22, the best mark in the AL.“I was a little nervous,” Ramirez said through a translator. “I wasn’t really thinking about pitching tonight but I knew the chance would be there because of our bullpen situation.”Girardi said he went to Ramirez with the score tied in the seventh because Dellin Betances and David Robertson had thrown a lot of pitches over the past few days. Jesse Chavez (5-3) hung around for six innings, long enough to get the win when his teammates rallied.“I thought we hit some balls hard, but it would be nice to continue to tack on runs to put more pressure on them and give our pitchers a little bit more breathing room,” Ellsbury said.Dan Otero got Brian McCann on a weak grounder with runners at the corners to protect a one-run lead in the seventh. Otero also worked a scoreless eighth and Sean Doolittle got three quick outs to extend his career-best shutout streak to 16 1-3 innings.“We have something to prove,” said Doolittle, who earned his seventh save. “When we get a chance to play against the Yankees on a big stage in their ballpark, guys step up.”Cespedes started Oakland’s comeback with a leadoff homer to center in the fourth. Jed Lowrie hit a deep sacrifice fly in the fifth, and Yankees starter Vidal Nuno was pulled one out shy of qualifying for a win. He left with a 4-2 lead after 92 pitches.“I had a lot of long ABs that drove my pitch count up,” Nuno said. “My ball was kind of everywhere tonight.”Cespedes hit another leadoff shot in the sixth, this one off Matt Daley barely clearing the short porch in right. Derek Norris reached on Jeter’s throwing error from shortstop and scored the tying run on Alberto Callaspo’s long sacrifice fly.Just called up from the minors, Ramirez (0-1) entered in the seventh. He retired his first batter but then gave up Donaldson’s 16th homer on his fifth major league pitch. The drive to left field gave the A’s a 5-4 advantage.Oakland has gone deep in 12 consecutive games, hitting 22 homers during that span. The AL West leaders added two insurance runs in the ninth on a hit batter and a sacrifice fly against Wade LeBlanc in his Yankees debut.(MIKE FITZPATRICK, AP Sports Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Lewis Hamilton wins fifth F1 title with 4th-place finish in Mexican GP

first_imgLewis Hamilton on Sunday became only the third man in the Formula One history to win five drivers’ titles.Hamilton finished fourth in the Mexican Grand Prix, which was won by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen for the second year in a row, to clinch his 5th title.The Mercedes driver, who equalled the five titles of late 1950s Argentine great Juan Manuel Fangio with only seven-time champion Michael Schumacher above them, finished fourth while Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel was second.Hamilton had needed only five points to be sure of the title while four-time champion Vettel had to win to have any hope of denying the Briton.”It’s something I dreamed of, but I never in a million years thought I’d be stood here as a five-time champion,” the 33-year-old told Sky Sports television.”I’m so grateful for everyone who helped me be here, to raise the bar and lift the cup.”It wasn’t won here, just throughout the season and a lot of hard work,” added the 33-year-old after doing smoking ‘donuts’ in front of a 130,000-strong crowd who witnessed a rare race without a Mercedes driver standing on the podium.”To complete this when Fangio did it with Mercedes is an incredible feeling and very surreal.”A day to remember! #HiFive pic.twitter.com/pBwoxUy0IDMercedes-AMG F1 (@MercedesAMGF1) October 29, 2018Team boss Toto Wolff hailed Hamilton as a well-deserved champion.”He has really been the dominant driver this year,” said the Austrian.Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen was third, meaning the constructors’ championship remained open at least until the Brazilian Grand Prix in two weeks’ time with Mercedes’ lead trimmed.advertisementSPORTING GESTUREIn a nice sporting gesture, Hamilton hugged Vettel and then ran back to the Mercedes garage to embrace his teammates one by one.”I think he drove superbly all year and was the better one of us two,” said the German, whose season unravelled after the August break. “I told him ‘well deserved’ and to enjoy it. Number five I think is something incredible.”I asked him to keep pushing for next year. I need him at his best to fight him again.” In a nice sporting gesture, Hamilton hugged Vettel after the race (AP Photo)Australian Daniel Ricciardo, Verstappen’s team mate, retired from the race with a smoking engine after starting from pole position.Team principal Christian Horner described that eighth retirement in 19 races as “absolutely gutting’, with Red Bull fretting about whether he would make it to the finish. “It was a shame to lose Daniel,” said Verstappen, who had been angry on Saturday after missing out on pole. “I think we could have had a one-two or at least two cars on the podium.”The Dutch driver seized the lead at the start, with Hamilton also making a quick getaway to slot in behind with Ricciardo dropping to third.When it starts to sink in that you’re a five-time @F1 World Champion… pic.twitter.com/k5jkOb8Ue8Mercedes-AMG F1 (@MercedesAMGF1) October 29, 2018But in a high-altitude race of attrition, with tyre wear playing a huge part in the outcome, the champion was unable to match the pace and had no need to take any risks either.”There’s nothing left guys, these tyres are dead,” Hamilton said after running off the track on lap 47. His Finnish team mate Valtteri Bottas finished fifth but lapped by Verstappen.As he crossed the line to take the title in Mexico for the second year in a row, Hamilton heard a message from Hollywood actor Will Smith come over the radio: “That’s how you do it, just like that. That’s how you’re supposed to drive.”Our boys #HiFive pic.twitter.com/FjImoycNRfMercedes-AMG F1 (@MercedesAMGF1) October 28, 2018But the afternoon was one of his hardest of the season, the Briton off the podium for the first time since a race retirement in Austria at the beginning of July.Nico Hulkenberg was sixth for Renault, who had Spaniard Carlos Sainz retire early on, with Charles Leclerc seventh for Sauber.Fangio.

And now @LewisHamilton…Welcome to the club, Lewis! #HiFivepic.twitter.com/6kjhUz4A6iMercedes-AMG F1 (@MercedesAMGF1) October 28, 2018Stoffel Vandoorne enjoyed a rare afternoon of success, finishing eighth for McLaren, while Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson was ninth and Pierre Gasly 10th for Toro Rosso.(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more

Of course, Adrien signed it.”I called him to have a confirmation that it was he who had sent this email. He did not answer me. I got confirmation from my manager. In the process, I warned my president of the content. I also warned the president of PSG because he is a PSG player.”I was surprised of course. I can understand the disappointment, the immense disappointment, but to take such a position … we are talking about a young player who for a while was in the French group. He excludes himself from the team. “I dare to hope that through some decisions like this it will allow him to mature, to reflect. I am convinced that he made a huge mistake in taking such a position. “He refuses his status as a reservist, to follow a program, and if there was a problem of being called as a substitute. It is his decision he assumes.”France are considered among the favourites to win the World Cup and must first negotiate a group that pits them against Australia, Peru and Denmark.last_img read more

Judge reserves decision in British Columbia child bride case

first_imgCRANBROOK, B.C. — A four-day gap in the whereabouts of a 15-year-old girl is enough to dispute whether she was removed from Canada in 2004 to marry a member of a fundamentalist sect in the United States, a lawyer argued Tuesday at the trial of a former member of the church.Joe Doyle, who is serving as an amicus curiae or friend of the court to ensure a fair trial, said Crown prosecutors haven’t proven that the girl was in Canada when the leader of the sect called James Oler and allegedly ordered him to bring the child to the United States to get married.Oler is charged with removing the girl from Canada to marry a member of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which practises polygamy in Bountiful, B.C., and the United States.He was acquitted in 2017 by a judge who was not convinced Oler did anything within Canada’s borders to arrange the girl’s transfer to the U.S. But the B.C. Court of Appeal agreed with the Crown that proof of wrongdoing in Canada was not necessary and ordered a new trial.Oler is self-represented and did not call any witnesses or make a case in his defence.In his closing argument, Doyle argued prosecutors hadn’t accounted for the window when the girl was last seen in Bountiful but then identified by a witness four days later in northern Idaho at a highway rest stop on June 24, 2004.Doyle raised the possibility that the accused and the girl were potentially already in the United States visiting other communities associated with the fundamentalist sect when Warren Jeffs allegedly called Oler.Special prosecutor Peter Wilson questioned Doyle’s suggestion that Oler and the girl may have already been in the United States in the four-day window, describing his argument on their movements as “fanciful.”“Maybe it did — anything can happen,” he added.Doyle also questioned the credibility of church records seized by U.S. law enforcement officials a decade ago at the Yearning for Zion Ranch in Texas.The court has heard the girl’s marriage was documented by priesthood records kept by Jeffs, the church’s president and prophet. One priesthood record describes the phone call that Jeffs made to Oler.Some of the documentation was incomplete and uncertified, which is contrary to the church’s doctrine, Doyle said.“What is not known about these records and is still not known … is which person or persons prepared them, when were they prepared, what information led to their preparation and where that information came from,” he said.In his closing arguments on Monday, Wilson contended that Oler should have known the girl would be subject to sexual activity following her marriage based on the nature of church doctrine and the role of women in the faith.Women do not have financial assets and need permission to travel or pursue post-secondary education, former church members told the trial. They were taught that their role within the religion was to be a celestial wife in polygamous marriages and to bear children.Justice Martha Devlin of the B.C. Supreme Court has reserved her decision and tentatively scheduled a ruling on June 24.(Cranbrook Daily Townsman)Trevor Crawley, Cranbrook Daily Townsman, Cranbrook Daily Townsmanlast_img read more
