I'm being serious, now, guys. I don't normally have this tone when I'm doing a podcast, but we're seeing so many IT companies that are just doing a poor job at setting up their remote workforces. There's been a 41.5% increase in the amount of businesses that are now open to threats. That's because they've been intentionally opened. Your business is like a box. If you have no light going into that box, nothing inside the box can spoil potentially. As soon as light starts going in, though, you can have bacteria and all sorts of things happen, and your business is exactly the same. Your business as a box, when you open up a door, you're going to let all sorts of nasties come in. I'll put a link in the description so you can see how much more, what they call RDP traffic, is out and around on the internet, which is a protocol that can be broken into.
Our special guest in this episode is Paul from No B*nk, a non-bank business and commercial finance solutionist. Paul is a wizard when it comes to looking at a different way that you can do finance, which is especially critical in today's financial climate. He has been involved in nonbank lending for around about 16 years but he has never ever put anybody in a loan with the bank. He explained, 'If I want to borrow money from you, why do I have to go to a bank to do that? You put your money in the bank and then I go and borrow the money from the bank. That's your money that's in the bank. That's not theirs. So why not just borrow directly from you? No B*nk is set up where we facilitate accurate information between somebody who wants to borrow money and someone who wants to lend it.' Listen to the podcast or read on to learn more about No B*nk.
'I had this wonderful engineer and she was brilliant. So we promoted her and she failed miserably. We promoted her, and she had a team of people around her. She had no clue how to lead a team. She frustrated the team. She was frustrated. She ended up leaving. So we lost a great engineer, and not to mention we still have a need for this leader in this area.'
