Podcast #36 - Collaboration vs.Competition

Podcast #36 of Xtraordinary Living is out. In this episode I interviewed one of PL&L's corporate clients, Founder and CEO of REZA Investment Group Reza Etedali. I believe you'll find Reza's background highly inspiring, and his way of doing business a breath of fresh air in an often stagnant corporate America.

When we think of big business, often we imagine the CEOs to be impersonal human beings; corporate big-wigs who are so dedicated to making money they have little time to care about the people around them . .. be it family or employees. In this podcast you will hear in Reza's words as well as in his calming voice, a kind and generous man building his vision through collaboration to support all of the people in his life.

In our 36th episode, you'll hear:
-- How Reza came to the US to pursue his dreams. Follow his careers from age 14 until now, as the twists and turns created his current extraordinary life.
-- Why he was driven to start his own business.
-- How important it is to have a vision and direction with an environment to support them both.
-- Why Reza made the decision to change his sales model from competition-based to one of collaboration.
-- What the results have been, even as he saw people leave the company when the changes were made.
-- How Reza felt when one of the investment group's best months occurred while he was on holiday for a month.
-- What advice he has for weathering the daily "sky is falling" media barrage.
-- and more!

When I asked Reza what he would most like to be remembered for -- he replied, "Somebody who helped make this world a better place." Please visit REZA Investment Group to find out more about Reza and his company.
