JIM WASZAK: Today our guest is Alison Henderson with Moving Image Consulting. Hello, Alison. Welcome to our show.
ALISON HENDERSON: Thanks so much for having me.
JIM WASZAK: You’re welcome. So tell us a little bit about Moving Image Consulting. What do you do exactly? I mean, are you going to teach us how to move more effectively or…?
ALISON HENDERSON: Well, that is somewhat of what I do. I concentrate on leadership and sales training and development based on communication, and my specialty is in something called movement pattern analysis, which is a way to observe subconscious behavior and to glean the decision making process of the people that you’re talking to.
So, basically what I do is concentrate more on the audience than on your own presentation skills. I can do that. But sometimes people get all in their heads, and then they get nervous when they’re thinking of what they were taught to do.
KEVIN O’FLAHERTY: We’re joined today by a return guest I’m excited to have come back. She did our 7th episode. Her name’s Doreen Petty from Doreen Petty Coaching. If you like what you hear today, go check out episode 7 on transitions in business that she did.
But today we’ve got a really good topic to talk about. We’re going to talk about the new overtime laws that are going to go into effect in -- Is it --
DOREEN PETTY: December 1st, this year.
KEVIN O’FLAHERTY: December 1st of 2016, and they’re going to be in effect in 2017 as well. So, Doreen has some specialized knowledge on this sort of thing, and it’s a pretty complex area. So, Doreen, I’ll let you take away. Why don’t you tell me a little bit about yourself and what you do to begin.
JIM WASZAK: Mohammed is a very interesting fellow who has done a lot of different things. He’s owned five different businesses; he was at one point a news anchor in Houston; and is now focused on a company called Center for Strategic Solutions. The real mission of it is to get people back to work create more jobs in the States. He has worked on reshoring programs, which is bringing items back into our country to manufacture, and has become in this process kind of a guru of knowing about government programs that can actually help companies.
Often we hear the worst thing that can happen is somebody walks in your door and says, “Hey. I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” We joke about that, and there certainly are enough things the government does to get in the way of small business owners, but there are some things that the government actually can do to help. So, Mohammed, why don’t you give us -- What drove you into this work?
MOHAMMED FAHEEM: Thank you for bringing me on here. What brought me to this -- Long story short, it was purely by accident. What brought me into business was by accident. I was working with Fisher Scientific for their light signals, Fisher Scientific division. Three years out of college worked with them in the Middle East, came back to the country, got married. My wife didn’t want to go back to Saudi Arabia, so we stayed over here. First year in Chicago had a head on collision with an 18 wheeler. You talk about getting a kick in the behind. I was basically paralyzed and couldn’t walk for two years after that.
