He and Jaime Jay have known each other for a long time. Together with Anthony Witt, they host the go-to business education summit 3DAY MBA (Masters in Business Academy).

Culture Through Communication

Culture is everywhere. David takes family as an example of culture. He shares that couples experience their own dynamic even before they have kids.

“Culture is about how things work and how people actually behave on a day-to-day basis.” – David Shriner-Cahn

They come from two families whose differences may present challenges in their relationship. There are taboos that may not be the same for both of them.

Similarly in business, people come from different backgrounds. Communication plays a big role in developing a culture together.  

Building Culture at Work

Culture is not location-centric. Nowadays, people can come together to work remotely from anywhere in the world. As David mentioned, culture is a behavior.

There are also different perspectives available. A person may enjoy engaging in a direct manner, while others may prefer to communicate their thoughts indirectly through gestures and other means of expression.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
