We are thrilled to have you join us today, welcome to ValiantCEO Magazine’s exclusive interview! Let’s start off with a little introduction. Tell our readers a bit about yourself and your company.
Móney Roseman: As a University of South Florida Graduate in Communications, I have been a part of two Division-1 Southeastern Conference athletic programs including, Mississippi State University and The University of Florida as well as one All American Conference athletic program with the University of South Florida. Professionally, I have been a part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tampa Bay Rays, continuously studying and learning the knowledge of the athletics world. I have dedicated my life to supporting, uplifting, and changing the lives of athletes that are often not noticed but show why they should be.
2021 and 2022 threw a lot of curve balls into business on a global scale. Based on the experience gleaned in the past couple years, how can businesses thrive in 2023? What lessons have you learned?
Móney Roseman: Businesses can thrive in 2023 by taking advantage of today’s technology to better navigate through the business industry. The technology now can help your business and assist other businesses by creating innovative strategies that can be applied locally and diversely. I’ve learned how to be able to pivot on a dime and adjust however I need to.
The pandemic seems to keep on disrupting the economy, what should businesses focus on in 2023? What advice would you share?
Móney Roseman: In 2023 businesses should be focused on being more flexible and willing to adapt and adjust to the new technology that has been discovered. I would say to have an open mind to new ideas and not shut the door to opportunities because you want to stick to the script.
How has the pandemic changed your industry and how have you adapted?
Móney Roseman: The pandemic changed the recruiting industry tremendously being that there could be no in-person visits for the entire 2020 year. With this change, I developed this digital recruiting exposure platform that did not require in-person meets and a quick more convenient, and efficient way for coaches to look at the underexposed athletes.
What advice do you wish you received when the pandemic started and what do you intend on improving in 2023?
Móney Roseman: Some advice I wish I knew before the pandemic is that developing a business is way deeper than just having a name and logo, there is a true meaning behind everything that is published and put out. I intend on improving the platform constantly and bettering the experiences for our users.
Online business surged higher than ever, B2B, B2C, online shopping, virtual meetings, remote work, Zoom medical consultations, what are your expectations for 2023?
Móney Roseman: My expectations for 2023 are very high with the technology at hand. I am able to communicate with my team and athletes all over quickly and efficiently through Zoom calls. I expect Watch Me Work Sports to be a household name, globally known and recognized. I expect us to be the leading recruiting platform for underexposed athletes.
How many hours a day do you spend in front of a screen?
Móney Roseman: I spend about 9 hours a day at my primary job and about 2-3 hours a day after working on the Watch Me Work Sports platform specifically.
The majority of executives use stories to persuade and communicate in the workplace. Can you share with our readers examples of how you implement that in your business to communicate effectively with your team?
Móney Roseman: I try to make sure I keep my employees in the loop and up to date on things immediately so no one is left unaware of anything. Communicating to your team efficiently is vital, you want everyone to be on the same page.
Business is all about overcoming obstacles and creating opportunities for growth. What do you see as the real challenge right now?
Móney Roseman: A real challenge I see right now is getting into the right neighborhoods and cities to find these hidden gems. It will require a lot of research to maneuver through our school/city tour to create a safe place for these athletes to gain more exposure. There are thousands of athletes, but it only takes one good eye to notice a gem.
In 2023, what are you most interested in learning about? Crypto, NFTs, online marketing, or any other skill sets? Please share your motivations.
Móney Roseman: I am most interested in NFTs and online marketing. Within the last 8 years, NFTs have become a major movement. I am still educating myself on how the NFT process works but so far I’ve focused mainly on online marketing to help bring more brand awareness to Watch Me Work Sports. Having the ability to broadcast my brand online motivates me because we don’t necessarily need to be in person in someone’s face to be seen or heard, it’s in our palms at all times.
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?
Móney Roseman: I think it takes a certain type of leader to view and understand how they actually lead their business and that comes from employee feedback. Even if a leader feels that they’re “not that boss”, it is always good to open the floor to your employees and see how they feel about things and get their opinions and ideas on things to help better the business environment and brand.
Bosses and leaders definitely need to take that step back and get feedback from their front line of defense (employees), hear them out, and apply the necessary changes.
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?
Móney Roseman: I would want my business superpower to be for me to be able to be in multiple places at once. It is definitely hard to be in one place and want or needs to be somewhere else so I think if I could multiply I would be able to get things done a lot quicker.
What does “success” in 2023 mean to you? It could be on a personal or business level, please share your vision.
Móney Roseman: Success to me means appreciating where I was 4 years ago and seeing all I have accomplished in such a short time that most people have not accomplished in a lifetime. I have been blessed to be able to build myself and my brand up to a point of happiness and satisfaction but also excitement for the room of growth that is to come.
