I help individuals and businesses leverage new opportunities, navigate change, and turn everyday encounters into real results.
I am an entrepreneur, author of two books, a business speaker (tactics with a touch of humor), podcast host, and referred to by many as a walking LinkedIn. My passion is inspiring people to step out of their current habits and into new opportunities that are already surrounding them. I leverage my extensive experience in the science of mindset and the art of business connections to help my clients create an advantage over their counterparts and their competition. More than motivation, I’m intent on helping others build their business and life by design.
Joyce’s Clients Include
Tired of the hearing the same topic in a slightly different way? Then it’s time for keynotes and breakout sessions that provide tactics, motivate and inspire you to take action.
Are you leading a team, in business development, career transition or starting a new venture? A targeted approach tends to get faster results.
Goals, challenges, and opportunities don’t come in a one-size fits all package. It’s time to get results that are as unique as the challenges you are facing in your business.
“If you’re going to be on it,run it.”
No matter if it was great coincidences or connections, Ed Holland has been blessed with both in his career.
Ed’s restaurant career started with a chance meeting while in college (a great story) and grew from there. He became friends with UMB’s CEO Crosby Kemper Jr. when he managed the Magnolia II restaurant. Based on his track record, it was an easy decision for Mr. Kemper to ask him to open and manage EBT. The restaurant paid homage to the former Emery Bird Thayer department store in downtown Kansas City (another great story).
During the past 39 years, Ed Holland has worked hard at being a successful restaurateur and leader as well as actively giving back to the community. As you’ll hear on the podcast, he never slows down, even in his spare time.
In Dogs, Roses & EBT, you’ll learn:
- The benefit of hiring for quality even when you’re first starting out.
- Why creating experiences for your customers and team will give you an advantage in business.
- How the power of mental wages, a smile, and an orange can keep you on your game.
- The magic of calling people by their name.
Ed is a great storyteller so this episode is a little longer than most as there was so much wisdom to share. The laughs are an added bonus!
