The more that I pushed forward, the more that I was able to break down doors and glass ceilings. So now everything seems pretty limitless. For a lot of founders out there, they just feel like they're going to win overnight and then most folks are not going to win overnight.It's like a 10 year journey itself. Your journey. I've seen folks that raise several rounds and they're still, like needing to raise more rounds. Really believe in yourself, surround yourself with other folks that believe in yourself.

Applying stories and reading is a timeless practice to learning our native language, and FabuLingua believes it is also naturally effective in second language acquisition. FabuLingua uses technology, delightful stories and game design to create an engaging and effective language learning experience.FabuLingua's unique model helps publishers, writers, and illustrators from all over the world to publish and monetize their stories. Our first product teaches Spanish & English, but soon we will offer multiple languages, markets and mediums.Before founding FabuLingua, Mark has been a start-up to public company founder, operations and finance executive specializing in early and growth stage challenges. Mark has led the growth and maturation of investor-backed companies in the technology, energy and consumer sector, raising $100 million + in angel, venture and public equity for 4 companies.

We'd loved it to be through fabulingua, but you know, if there are other ways that that are suitable as well. It's something that I believe benefits these children so much in terms of developing perspective and empathy in our world. Which is something that's going to sort of benefit generations for years to come.If you want to learn more about our particular method, and you want to see some examples of the stories that we have, and understand the brain science and the learning science behind language learning in general.

On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Mary Rauzi Creative Director, Strategist, Brand Builder and Founder/Creative Embr CreativecavnessHR website: https://www.cavnessHR.comJason’s email: jasoncavness@cavnessHR.com@cavnessHR across social media@jasoncavnessHR across social mediaWe talk about the followingEmbr CreativeBeing a Military SpouseHaving a personal brandHer passion for all things designMary’s BioMary has served as an active-duty military spouse for the last ten years, and currently serves as a reserve spouse. During this time, she has learned a great deal about taking a challenge and turning it into a benefit. With each deployment, TDY, and training, she used the extra time to learn more, work harder, and expand her skillset. With over 11 years in design and strategy. Mary Rauzi has a proven track record of helping brands grow. After launching Embr Creative at the beginning of 2018, she is now looking to grow and expand Embr’s reach. It is her mission to bolster other creatives around her to dream bigger and work more on the projects they love.Embr is a Seattle-based collective of designers, developers, videographers, musicians, and creatives. We thrive on brand challenges and working as your partner to build upon and achieve your goals through design. Embr Creative listens to the business objectives of a company, discovers audience motivations, and grows the visualization of a brand to give it a leg up. With a professional look that is strategy-driven, your company gets a foothold with its viewers turning them from acquaintances to evangelists.Mary’s Social MediaMary’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mary-rauzi/Embr Website: https://embrcreative.com/Embr Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/embrcreative/?hl=enEmbr FB: https://www.facebook.com/embrcreates/Embr LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/embrcreative/about/Mary’s AdviceFor business owners, I would say really understand your values and what you're trying to communicate, before you go to a designer, and work hard to figure those things out. What's right for your company, the more you know about what you're trying to communicate, the better a designer is going to be at their job. If you already have that leg up, the more the better. Think about brand as you're developing your processes. What is your customer service and how does that pan out? How does that tie to your values and your brand overall? Is it all communicating together because it'll make that authenticy if you're very consistent in your communications both visually and your team members so culturally, culturally in your company.For young designers, my advice for them is to try to get internships and opportunities to do design before you're out of school. If you're self-taught, use as many opportunities as you can to do more projects and to get more experience, even if you become one of the designers on 99 designs or Fiverr. That's what those are great for students that are trying to build up a body of work or get more experience working with clients. They can get on those. The more experience you have, the better because then your portfolio gets better. The way that you interact with clients are better and it's going to serve you well, in the long run. For military spouses, use all the time that you can when your spouse is gone, all of those extra lulls that you have to build that community around you. I would have never survived without my community, and especially if you can't afford to pay somebody else. There will be families that we have very close relationships with. Having that community of people you trust without relying on family because we don't have any family nearby. Use that and then use that time to really focus on yourself and build your dreams and what you want out of your life and career. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Whether it's through podcasts or courses or books. Of course, education is important, and you should learn. But if you spend all your time learning and never implementing what you learned. What's the point Really? So recently, I've adopted this for every hour I spend learning, I'll spend another hour implementing what I learned. That way I don't get stuck on that.

Ricardo Perez Military Veteran, Entrepreneur and Aspiring Author
On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Ricardo Perez – Military Veteran, Entrepreneur and Aspiring AuthorcavnessHR website: https://www.cavnessHR.comJason’s email: jasoncavness@cavnessHR.com@cavnessHR across social media@jasoncavnessHR across social mediaWe talk about the followingHis fascination with plants.Doing things that don’t scale.OMX AnalyticsBeing comfortable with being uncomfortable.Ricardo’s BioRicardo grew up in a small town called Freer in South Texas, practically raised himself, barely graduated high school in 2004, and ultimately joined the Army in 2006. He served as an infantryman in a brand-new unit on Fort Lewis here in Washington, the Brigade 2nd Infantry Division, and was one of the first privates in the brigade. The unit deployed in 2009 as the first Stryker brigade to Afghanistan, and upon return, the unit deactivated.Ricardo voluntarily withdrew from a medical discharge and ETS’d in October 2010. Using his GI Bill benefits, Ricardo graduated from Texas A&M University Kingsville in 2016 with his degrees in chemical engineering and chemistry and moved back here to Washington State not long after graduating. From there, things in his life took a twist, and now, he’s a recent graduate of The University of Washington’s Master of Science in Entrepreneurship program offered by Foster BusinessSchool.Ricardo’s Social MediaRicardo’s Twitter: @therealchemjaRicardo’s FB: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002919020741Ricardo’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rperez36/Ricardo’s AdviceOne more thing with the entrepreneurship part that you were asking about, I say it's really important to be fearless. Number one, you have to get uncomfortable. That was one thing that army taught me. The army makes you uncomfortable in many different ways and you grow as a result of it. You grow as a person, you grow as a soldier. You grow as a leader, get uncomfortable. It's going to help you grow and get to school. Whether you can afford to pay for classes and actually get a degree. If you can’t, there are a billion YouTube videos from Ivy League schools about business and everything you could ever want to learn. I highly recommend when Coronavirus is all over, go to your actual local universities and go to their business departments and just start talking to people.

On this episode of the Jason Cavness Experience I talk to Cynthia Del’Aria CEO/COO Raika TechnologiescavnessHR website: https://www.cavnessHR.comJason’s email: jasoncavness@cavnessHR.com @cavnessHR across social media@jasoncavnessHR across social mediaWe talk about the followingHis company Raika Technologies.Thunder Puppy K9.Advice for non-tech foundersImportance of Product Market fit and Idea Validation.Cynthia’s BioI am a startup ninja.I know how to dig into any idea and find the gold, the killer feature, the thing users absolutely cannot live without... And I know how to help entrepreneurs turn their idea into a business that will make real money.I started coding when I was 8 years old, and over the past several decades have learned what great technology implementations look like from some of the smartest people in the industry. My first two companies were all about web design and development and finding ways to help companies come into the new era of promoting and doing business on the web, and it turns out, I have a natural knack for business.My past experience building my own startups gave me a lens through which to examine what would work for other business types in tech and how to apply those processes and methodologies for other people who have great tech ideas.I developed the curriculum for the Raika Technologies and GotAnAppIdea.com Startup Program based on what I've done in my own companies and those of our clients, all for one guiding purpose: to help new app and tech entrepreneurs spend as little time and money as possible evaluating their idea, helping them get to a go-no-go decision quickly and efficiently. I also developed a process to help stakeholders, Project Managers, Product Managers and IT professionals at all size companies test new ideas without impacting their teams, road maps and corporate priorities.I help companies and entrepreneurs get things done!Cynthia’s Social MediaCompany Website: https://www.raikatech.com/Company FB: https://www.facebook.com/raikatech/Company Twitter: https://twitter.com/raikatechCompany Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/raikatechnologies/Company LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/company/raikatechnologies/Cynthia’s LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/cynthiadelaria/Incubate This Podcast: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9nb3RhbmFwcGlkZWEuY29tL2luY3ViYXRlX3RoaXNfcG9kY2FzdC9pbmN1YmF0ZV90aGlzX2ZlZWQueG1s?sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiO6MiptabrAhXYCc0KHTghDO4Q4aUDegQIARAC&hl=enCynthia’s GiftOn https://www.raikatech.com/cavness there will be an offer where you can book a one hour free consultation with me.
