Good morning everybody happy hump day it's Wednesday.
I tour days ago -- Lawrence in many thanks for joining us send me to meet at disseminated Lauren -- lake man based then.
Do the same to our show and chat and because you've been really good about getting here.
-- chats during our discussion on this half hour we're gonna talk about the Olympics right now with Kate Rogers.
Reporter covers small business and it seems like we're streaming all of this Olympics coverage -- work and it's.
Coming up one absolutely so with a big games -- not this past weekend and Monday and even people who really typically aren't interested in sports -- Drumming up interests I in the Olympics -- who's winning and who's missing why so.
I talked to a software company GFI -- -- that small business -- really need to start monitoring their employees and what they're doing during work time because this can you big drain on productivity.
So that you me some tips for our business I think that -- tips -- monitored of course I now.
And the first it is -- -- ever written a web policy in place and this is regardless whether the Olympics -- and moms are not appear small business on parents and you start hiring employees he -- that written web policy.
And I think that should be distributed to them on day one of their appointment with you -- and if she.
Web browser is being used and and what they're searching for when they're searching for -- so.
The -- -- that's a great idea yeah honesty and this -- you know looks I mean I know people will always wonder woman's employer yeah I'm doing right now chances are and in the bigger the company is co existing where they are yes.
But smaller companies typically can't afford that monitoring -- where.
So there are some cheaper option is out now for them to use but.
I -- you need to distribute that policy on day one and then -- up again a gentle reminder now the Olympics are here ideas when remind every one of our web policy what you should and should not be looking at your computer.
And when you should be looking meaner company is really gonna say it can't watch any of the Olympics now that -- known Alan that's Cynthia I said of course everybody's interested so.
Most people have integrity they're gonna keep it to a minimum but this -- big drain not only am productivity but -- -- -- can -- other employees are getting away with.
Watching the gymnastics all day on their computer and here in the business on -- you're not saying something to them.
Other workers see that they're not gonna be happy about it plus were less productive in the summer as it is of course -- things those kind of slow down so I think against a reminder of something good -- they said around big events like the Olympics elections coming up a bush so interest in that too so.
Just -- -- workers what they shouldn't -- realize that this is consuming but you might want to keep it to a minimum court OK and then you say here you should update your software.
Yes those software.
-- any anti antivirus protection and on your web browsers is going to be updates for your software that you should just install again big events like the Olympics.
Elections viruses kind of run rampant all over the place so it's a good time to -- Keep that up to.
Scams and yes -- need to -- RS AG -- they had a big blog posting on it and also the Olympics committee issues sound warnings for people to Denise hasn't been going -- the past two years -- -- can believe it wouldn't be a long time grant.
And that just goes to show you how excited people are about these big -- so the first scam -- was -- Olympics committee they said.
If you've got eighteen now that said you are winner of a lottery drying and you got free tickets the Olympic I'm hiring I don't know but not -- funny -- -- free tickets yes he gets anything it's to the grain prices that -- -- -- right.
That's one thing another thing and -- -- targeting -- -- certain industries yeah on manufacturing industry they're saying you can be part of the Olympic Games this year products there -- small fee and also virus they want to be careful of that tale.
And notes when he did that another thing GF I brought up is your mind your business on your place of what actually -- -- If you words you have data -- for example volunteer customary for -- -- that's unprotected out there.
That cost your business -- dollar is really especially for small business to clean up a match like that it's so costly so even -- -- like that then there's tons of examples out there from big companies like.
Sony last year in smaller companies what it costs so if you have a breeds.
With everyone doing with the Astros begin on the Internet the app that may have really expense of that or he's not but he adds up there yet to need to get.
Well -- as if I tell you monitor your -- so this is gonna be some thing that really depends on your culture in your workplace environment but.
Some businesses like I said they opt for that software -- -- Sips lemonade blocks certain web sites.
I don't know if you want to go to -- green because and they may feel like you're trying to really control -- -- yes that's right Big Brother feel and it even my eight.
Kind of a damper on everybody's out but another thing you can do -- to say.
Hey I know aren't excited about the Olympics but let's keep the talking to you just lunch time or just your coffee break our -- I'm based -- you can even host media want to on Friday isn't it we get more ominous sit together and talk about the Olympic CGF -- -- -- their software.

Because in Carolina and they didn't bring up but that's interesting and -- areas to find that out but -- then bring up I knew I do know that there are cheaper option for us this new businesses to get this -- -- the name and this is.
Obviously small business center Wednesday.
That there are -- many costs for small business is now seem to get up and running to maintain themselves to to be profitable to bring in businessman.
Of course you know you don't have a lot of workers so the workers that you do have they need to be working of course yet full.

You -- up I had to keep your workers productive minutes.
Olympic fever which I had I don't know it's gymnastics as a it's so great I love it -- they can't help it -- -- had not even close.

All right guys let us know your favorite sports are going to go to break and then when it come back with.
Health and fitness story you probably want to know about about a man who says he's not gonna over promise.
And therefore he -- -- deliver.
We'll -- back.
Hey guys welcome back to small business center.
It's Wednesday we bring you small business stories every Wednesday and we have a very special and today we're joined by Matt has the founder and CEO of -- Jensen.
Fitness company right F five grandson tells them about.
I'm sure there were -- -- -- portfolio we have multiple brands across multiple channels all -- wellness.
Supplements technology -- and sort of.
Connecting those two things with consumers -- -- -- stand out from some of the other.
Fitness ideas out there.
I mean I think for months from a supplemental standpoint we are first -- a value we drive value -- consumers by getting an education to keep.
To keep them on their plans and keep them.
Going towards -- goal verses giving them this one stop solution for.
Maybe -- -- buying something that that they think is gonna cause a the quick response loses.
Making a lifestyle that this -- to educate -- trying to lose some pounds and 71 I think you -- -- I think that you can lose weight that way you're afterward gain muscle that way but it's more -- stuff.
And everyone says that it's just hard test to really grasp and understand -- so -- to come up with this idea.
-- so I started.
As they're working in -- -- I was in college and I had an injury wrestling and couldn't wrestling more so I.
The start working in -- season and while in there working with consumers.
Understanding how they think moon which is where my foundation is now I was able to.
Gain -- perspective.
Like what's missing them and so I started buying -- -- stores and I was young sort of franchising.
Which I think is a great thing for people to view as.
Trying to learn how to be in business of franchises it's amazing what he says its -- -- let me just say you're being modest by the eight to 24 you had twelve.
Nancy franchises and a lot of help -- get their.
So franchise allows someone to learn how to be in business learn how to understand the balance sheet in cash flow forecasts and.
Because it was -- C and have a phenomenal franchise system I was able to take that.
And learn from it and then Susan educate -- mess up I mean where they have they have people that support you okay and that's that's what the value of the franchise's I think.
It teaches you.
How to start thinking like a business owner and hands on using the tools to -- Had a profit spark and it set up like that so you feel that you pay a small royalty to the to the franchise or and then you have.
Profits based on what your profit margins are.
Yourself so you're selling something for five dollars and it cost you fifty divide in the.
850 Arabs and profit margin and you.
You keep all that last 10%.
-- -- -- So -- -- -- software you -- -- he's -- any fashion now in 2007.
My soul my last one and started this company.
OK I'm so I actually went back to my roots and start selling TG and -- first and because I knew that model really well I was able to take.
Take the knowledge and learned there apply it to this this business and and work with relationships they had their so I had a good gradual.
Help along the way no business degree or -- who dropped out of college -- really love it if you're successful what's -- Jensen now where it was there was an incomplete.
My mother's name maiden name my -- is made out -- there.
All right so what are the five different brands that make up -- so each brand has a support system so.
That's the revolution lifestyle as the first -- I was just at supplement you take on -- dead yet based on CLA and CLA is a ingredient that you use to.
Attack abdominal fat little -- 36 clinical studies on it and it basically allows your body to use at a post tissue fat for fuel.
That energy to lean muscle tissue -- allowed your body to convert and use it as lean muscle tissue.
I use it as fuel to create new muscle tissue padded June -- to get -- says that sort of.
The again working with consumers and everything a lot of ingredients were on our on the market as individuals ingredients -- what makes.
Products special for companies as you're able to take.
Those ingredients and put them into grouping them and -- give your kids get a consumers something and that's they blend that helps.
That the ingredients playoff each other -- -- It makes sense -- -- lasted.
I'm cut stiff from the court so -- from the core is a support sort of program for a cut -- is telling you that all of our products are.
Be as a lifestyle verses -- the treatment so.
That from the core is is a.
That basically planned to follow we're read a book about the -- from the core.
And Emanuel goes with each product when you -- -- -- says this is the product you're using it's meant to be a supplement not any.
-- And this party lifestyle so -- from the -- is a road map basically that's and it seems honest dances it's it's it's that's the that's what I want.
To change in this industry is is create more than on this environment we -- -- It helps -- -- supplement but you have to do the work cut out there and had a skinny girl actor and now it says so why help noticing -- there yet.
While I was working on that cuts I start working with an agency and LA ends.
One of their clients has Bethany Frankel hands.
Bethany and I share a lot of -- the same philosophies about wellness and health and that it needs to be about me a lifestyle money race -- -- -- and I had she's she's amazing she's amazing marketer -- like an idol are meant for you now.
I mean I I respect her tremendously but I think.
Mentor I don't know -- They're like having your business is somebody it's already have a man -- mentoring relationship right meant that now that you mention that mentors so if you know there's people watching this show that want to start businesses I would say the most important thing to me.
Coming up -- most the best advice that you give to somebody is that.
Finding great mentors and people have been their first and it's.
You eat it you learn good value lessons from ethics and in business -- all the way up to just how to be how how to operate your business and understand.
Things that you don't that you can't understand -- in there so learn from some incentive and a good point.
And also training day and the TD one challenge but you have stuff coming out in the next couple of months also -- had a lot of stuff coming out.
That's later said -- -- -- morbid portfolio of -- brands and we use our resources as shared services model to spread across its.
All of our channels and and see.
-- Basically sharing resources to to include brands and a different marketing avenues different.
Retailers and vendor relationships.
Apparently we always ask our our viewers to to.
-- and journalist with the evening -- -- -- SR says I always have the desire to find healthier lifestyle choices -- I'm only human and go for what I like better you only live.
Tackle well we all have I think I think that that -- here she Ernie said exactly what the pro yeah.

People make diving so such a this is a die -- -- a stay on after this many days and then.
I'm gonna get offense and a -- I'll be thin and I'll be happy that doesn't really work that way because you have to stay on.
As a lifestyle that otherwise of this game that right back so.
My suggestion is have.
Six days a week do you follow -- good lifestyle and on the weekends if you achieve a couple times have something but.
To every day achieve its -- First of all once you have something every day it's no longer treat it's just.
It's almost a -- -- needed to get through the day here or it's your answer a 100% sure our yourself once -- -- good for being -- -- every -- Matt has CEO of course -- thanks for coming not that's -- After break.

He's the big difference for what for module does appear that all of the materials out there that are -- -- stretching out if it's a had a similar announcements she.
Buying machine it's a very very different premise and the and the product comes out a little bit different.
And it sounds my specialty so where exactly is it stretched.
