What can small businesses offer to employees besides benefits and perks?

Sometimes I hear small business owners wonder how they can compete against their larger competitors for talent. They think they cannot get the best talent because they do not offer the same benefits and perks as do their larger competitors.

Here’s what I have to say to that:

A cow giving a raspberry

Just because you don’t have the traditional benefits and perks to offer doesn’t mean you don’t have any. Think about what makes you different and offer that as a perk.

Pantene's "I'm Sorry" Ad

Like most hair care products, Pantene regularly releases commercials that feature models who have bouncy, glossy and healthy long locks. In a recent ad however, Pantene took a hard look at an issue deeper than shiny hair, in an impactful way that remained on brand and sent a powerful message to the brand’s target audience, and beyond.
 
The brand’s latest commercial delves into the concept of "sorry." The ad features various women’s knee-jerk reaction to apologize for every-day occurrences, something that likely resonates with most women who watch it. A young professional woman depicted in the commercial says sorry when she enters a coworker's office to ask a question. A polished professional woman says sorry when she asks a male coworker to clarify something. A busy mother says sorry to her partner when she passes their young son over to him. A wife says sorry to her husband when she takes her side of the blanket when they're both trying to sleep.

I've Never Said "I Love You" First

Being a curious person, I ask a million questions. A guy I used to date at dinner parties would say, "Stephanie's around here somewhere, you can't miss her - she's the one asking questions."  It was a running joke.
 
The questions really never end.  Some questions keep me awake at night, "does the Zero Point Field really exist?" and some are fleeting, "what would I look like with a shaved head?" and every question in between.

You Are Not Your Results

You Are Bigger Than Your Results

I'm spending the weekend at Brandon Hawk's YouTraining and after our first day - and a lot of crying - the thing that shook me to the core was this simple sentence: YOU ARE GREATER THAN YOUR RESULTS.

As it sunk in, my head started to spin. "But that's my identity. My results. What I've built. That's who I am. How can that be true?" The tears started to well up in my eyes as this truth hit me like a kiss from a fist. Owwwwwwwww………

Why Men Are Important To Female Entrepreneurship

 
I get asked a lot why I chose to focus on women when starting Chic CEO. Why would I ignore the other half? Don't guys need this information too? I've even been called sexist by men who think my business is an offense to their gender. 
 
The truth is, I love men. I chose to focus on women because I saw a market that wasn't being served. Smart, amazing women who were looking for a resource that gave them the clear, how-to information they wanted. But from the very beginning, men have served a very important role in the growth of Chic CEO - and without them, we wouldn't be doing the work we do.
