ImagineBC has harnessed the power of blockchain technology and AI/ML technology into a mobile application, where 90% of all the revenue generated within the community is distributed back to the members of the community.
Managing expectations and trust are key to resolving baggage from a previous business partnership. Going into business with a new partner is an opportunity to explore fresh perspectives and exciting ideas. However, if your new business partner is still toting baggage from a previous partnership, it could derail your collaborative journey. To keep past experiences from standing in the way of future success, business partners must learn how to manage expectations. Below, 10 Rolling Stone Culture Council members offer fellow business leaders their best advice for building trust with their new partners, especially if those partners are wary of getting burned again.
Your team may be stressed, but empowering them to experiment can keep them moving forward. Working through the pandemic has caused many professionals a lot of anxiety. Even though this free time affords people more opportunity to achieve their goals, they aren’t often seizing it because they're stressed about their health, their families and their jobs. As a leader, it's important to empower your team to use this time to continue growing, learning and evolving, even if they're preoccupied with just "staying afloat" right now. Below, 15 members of Rolling Stone Culture Council explained how to encourage your team members to experiment and innovate during difficult times. Follow their recommended steps to keep everyone's morale high and creative juices flowing.
We started ImagineBC in response to a problem: digital platforms make their money by selling data to advertisers. The dominant paradigm among media companies and society at large is, hey, you agreed to the terms and conditions, so there’s nothing you can do. We’re starting a movement to challenge that. ImagineBC is a new media company. It’s a secure platform for unique content experiences that pay members and creators back. ImagineBC was built from the ground up with your privacy and security in mind. Through utilization of Blockchain Technology, we enable our member’s data and personal information to be stored on the most advanced and secured data-storage system available – preventing anyone but you from accessing your information. Blockchain Technology allows ImagineBC to treat every member as anonymous, while still verifying that every member of the community is who they say they are.
