Featuring John Fagerholm, Employer Defense Attorney in Our InNetwork Spotlight

 

John Fagerholm Employer Defense Attorney, Los Angeles, California

John Fagerholm, Employer Defense Attorney, Los Angeles, California

Who He Is:  John is an entrepreneur and business expert with a bar card to practice law, but is most interested in the business of law.  Lessons learned from the successful practice of law enhance his understanding of what works and what does not work.  Lessons continue to provide a valuable educational resource to hone legal and business expertise.

Lessons Learned As Entrepreneur:  It’s important to know your clients and understand their habits, and be adaptable.  These attributes are of particular importance for prospective new business owners who need to develop a deep understanding of their customer base, preferably before they start selling.  Fagerholm says, “You can have the best product or service, but if you have little understanding of your customer, your selling may not be as effective as it could be”.

Importance Of Empathy:  Besides making you human, empathy and sympathy will help connect you to your customers, employees, partners and anyone else involved in your business.  Fagerholm says, “Outside of business, I have had countless inspirations from hearing stories from others about a problem.  Applying empathy allows for the exchange of more data.  Often new products and services are born out of an attempt to solve problems”.

Noteworthy Strength:  His ability to navigate through fear. He makes an effort to “Spock” everything potentially having risk.  He removes the emotion and determines if the reward is worth the risk, and that is the extent of it. He’s not without fear.  He is human.  He just understands why it’s there and doesn’t allow it into his daily life.

Meaning Of Success:  Success means leaving a legacy of helping others help themselves.  Success means focusing on leaving something good behind which others can model as a reference to obtain their success.  Success means doing something great with the time each is allotted on earth.

Featuring Ken Collis, CEO of TLK Fusion in Our May / June InNetwork Spotlight

Ken Collis, CEO of TLK Fusion, Los Angeles, California

Who He Is:  Ken is the definition of what most would want their boss to be.  He is kind, energetic, and driven to not only produce results for his clients, but also his employees.  A rare trait among corporate America where stories of cost cutting abound for the benefit of already swollen coffers.

Appeal Of The Finance Industry:  From years of marketing experience at Clear Channel to his monumental success with the development of Authorize.net, Collis has always had an affinity for building successful platforms for businesses.  A seeker of knowledge, he maintains his edge through daily self-improvement through reading educational books pertaining to marketing and business.

Power Of Mentorship:  Mentorship could be considered the keystone to Collis’ business management approach.  He invests time each week to spend time with, and educate his employees to mold them into more successful individuals.  He desires for the improvement of all of his employees and it shows with the careful attention he provides to them.

Important To Be Adaptable:  Collis has realized first hand, the necessity of being adaptable.  In a world traditionally governed by physical marketing and telemarketing, the digital revolution certainly weeded out those who were incapable of adapting.  His desire to be on top of things has enabled his company to not only survive, but thrive in the modern world.
