Online business surged higher than ever, B2B, B2C, online shopping, virtual meetings, remote work, Zoom medical consultations, what are your expectations for 2022?
Daniel Burkholder: This is only the beginning, it’s going to keep exploding
How many hours a day do you spend in front of a screen?
Daniel Burkholder: 10ish.
Business is all about overcoming obstacles and creating opportunities for growth. What do you see as the real challenge right now?
Daniel Burkholder: Inflation. Recession possibly on the horizon.
In 2022, what are you most interested in learning about? Crypto, NFTs, online marketing, or any other skill sets? Please share your motivations.
Daniel Burkholder: Online marketing. This is directly related to my business and niche.
A record 4.4 million Americans left their jobs in September in 2021, accelerating a trend that has become known as the Great Resignation. 47% of people plan to leave their job during 2022. Most are leaving because of their boss or their company culture. 82% of people feel unheard, undervalued and misunderstood in the workplace. Do you think leaders see the data and think “that’s not me – I’m not that boss they don’t want to work for? What changes do you think need to happen?
Daniel Burkholder: Bosses need to start connecting more closely with their people. I’m sure many bosses are in denial but I’m sure there are others but they don’t know how to lead better. They don’t have the tools to lead their organization properly.
We need to start teaching/training our leaders how to lead.
On a lighter note, if you had the ability to pick any business superpower, what would it be and how would you put it into practice?
Daniel Burkholder: Connect with people. I would use it to connect with my ‘perfect client’
What does “success” in 2022 mean to you? It could be on a personal or business level, please share your vision.
Daniel Burkholder: I have a vision as a solopreneur to have financial, spatial, & time freedom.
