Growth Opportunities, Great Companies

How to Scale With a Culture of Opportunity | Mark Monchek 017

Mark is passionate about helping leaders build great companies. He has worked with leaders from Google, Apple, Warby Parker, Goldman Sachs, and Etsy among others.

Their team loves to discover and develop opportunities that allow companies to become profitable and sustainable. They believe in the power of passion and of experiences that make a difference.

One Powerful Business Tandem

Mark saw many examples of strategies that failed. They never made it because they did not take culture into consideration. According to him, culture and strategy go together.

“Great strategy evolves from the culture.” – Mark Monchek

An example is Zappos, a leading online retailer of shoes. They are more than a shoe company. Their strategy is built around the culture of happiness.

The idea is to provide customers with the best possible purchasing experience. The company also empowers their employees to make decisions. Not to mention, they provide a $5,000 bonus to those who choose not to join the company during the hiring process.

What Makes Companies Succeed

Culture is something which members of a team create together. Leaders are not the only people who create it. Members must also buy into that culture to turn it into a success.

“You have to co-create it.” – Mark Monchek on culture

According to Mark, part of what it takes to grow is a company’s success DNA. It points out the qualities or elements that worked for the company and those that failed.

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.
