Tim Byrne Podcasts

My family is a strange one. Don’t get me wrong, I love all of them but it’s complicated. My brother hasn’t spoken to me in years. Now Kevin isn’t speaking with his daughter Alex because she’s working with me. There’s a lot more to it than that, of course, and that’s what today’s episode is all about. Together Alex and I try and excavate some of the stranger aspects of the Byrne clan. We discuss our incredible talent for grudge holding. And we discuss why it’s so complicated when you try and mix business and family. ___________________________ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/timbyrnealmostlive Twitter: https://twitter.com/timbyrnealmost Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/TimByrneAlmostLive

Change is the only thing you know for certain in business. Everything is constantly shifting and you have to be keenly aware of those changes if you’re going to succeed. Take office space for example. For decades we have been installing glass in some of the biggest offices in the country. But that industry is in the midst of some serious disruption. The rise of the gig economy means theres are literally hundreds of thousands of people who need office space. It would be way too expensive for each person to rent on their own. That’s where co-working comes in. These ad-hoc office spaces are now in every major city on the planet. And they are making things very uncomfortable for traditional management companies. My guest this week is Dale Hersowitz the VP of coworking for Yardi. They are one of the biggest software companies for property managers and are making big waves in the coworking space. Things are always changing but that doesn;t mean you have to be left behind! ___________________________ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/timbyrnealmostlive Twitter: https://twitter.com/timbyrnealmost Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/TimByrneAlmostLive

I have a confession to make. It’s not all about me. That may be surprising to anyone that has been watching this show over the last two years. I have been accused (occasionally) of being a little self-centred. I’ll cop to that. But the truth is my success is almost entirely because of the support of some incredible people around me. That is especially the case when it comes to today’s guest. Mike Wickenden is the Director of Operations for Stadia Industries. Mike joined us when he was 17 (!) but quickly rose through the ranks of the company. He is one of my most trusted employees and I really value his perspective. We’ve been through some incredible ups and downs over the last two decades. Today, we talk about the thing that makes Stadia different from almost every other company out there. We tried to create a family not just a business. That might sound cliché but we really mean it. We’ve spent a lot of time to make our employees feel cared about. It’s not just about a paycheque! ___________________________ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/timbyrnealmostlive Twitter: https://twitter.com/timbyrnealmost Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/TimByrneAlmostLive

“You’re never going to survive”. Those were the words of encouragement I received at the young age of 20 years old. I was broke. Like broke, broke. I had just recently left my Dad’s company to strike out on my own. And things weren’t going well. I was on a job site early in the morning when a colleague of my Dad sidled up beside me. “Tim,” he said. “You’re an idiot and you’re never going to survive.” I’d like to tell you that I told him to shove it but I didn’t. I went back to my car and burst into tears. But looking back it was a good life lesson. It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there and you have to be tough to survive. I’m joined this week by Adam Bartman, co-founder of ReedWater.io. The company is on the bleeding edge of water management technology. His products allow plumbers and building managers to be able to quickly identify leaks and other problems and shut them down. Together we talk about our respective origin stories and how we’ve survived the many hardships of running a business. ___________________________ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/timbyrnealmostlive Twitter: https://twitter.com/timbyrnealmost Facebook: http://www.Facebook.com/TimByrneAlmostLive

You’ve done it before. Everyone has. Someone has treated you badly so you do the same to someone else. Maybe your wife yelled at you in the morning so you snap at a co-worker. Or you lose a client so you yell at your kid. Here’s the question. Why do you have to take somebody else's negative energy? My old friend Doug Macy from Trust 1 Security joins me this week to answer that question. We discuss why keeping a balance of negative and positive energy in your life and your business is so important.
