#Entrepreneur #Business @Calliste on The 10 Minute Meeting

New York, N.Y. – We all know the popular adage, “time is money” and for majority of people that is true. Especially true for consultants, accountants, lawyers and other service professionals time is a valuable commodity.

“We conducted meetings every 25 minutes, two meetings an hour. Then we were introduced to the 20 minute meeting, three meetings an hour”, says Callistecomm founder and senior consultant Jerry Calliste Jr.

“So the thought crossed our minds. How about the 10 minute meeting, six meetings an hour? We can conduct 1 or 2 hours worth of meetings with contractors or partners and manage 6 to 12 projects”, says Calliste Jr.

Talk about efficiency. For Callistecomm that will leave approximately 37 to 38 hours of a 40 hour work week to manage and execute plans and achieve business goals. “As managing director I have an opportunity to cover more projects and further motivate my team leaders and save time”, says Calliste Jr.

In 2009 Mr. Calliste Jr. allowed Callistecomm to adopt the 40 hour, 4 day work week. Mr. Calliste Jr. through one of his joint ventures learned from a Scandinavian partner how Scandinavians balance work, family and personal time. Calliste Jr. recalls his European counterpart saying, “I am not going to work 60 to 80 hours and all weekend on our project like you Americans work. We believe Americans work to long.”

Calliste Jr. thought he had a point. Scandinavians are routinely voted efficient and having the best education systems when working an average of 35 hours a week and vacationing 2 months out of a year.

“Imagine if your business has 4 contractors applying the same practice to their meetings. Productivity should be through the roof”, says Calliste Jr.

Calliste Jr. and his team will not be the first company to explore the 10 minute meeting. It is a known fact that Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo, while at Google held 10 minute meetings (Ref: Gallo, C. 2006. “How To Hold A Meeting Like Google”. Bloomberg Business. Web http://www.bloomberg.com/bw/stories/2006-09-26/how-to-run-a-meeting-like-google).

In 2014, Entrepreneur magazine published an article by Drake Baer (originally posted in Business Insider), titled, “11 Ways Top Execs Like Marissa Mayer and Jeff Bezos Run Meetings Effectively” (Web: http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/240287).

Throughout 2016, Calliste Jr. and his team @Callistecomm (TW) will measure the outcome of holding 10 minute meetings. Expect a follow up to this post later in the year.

Jerry Calliste Jr. Hashim Electro Hip Hop, Techie

Hashim Considers Filing Libel Suit Against American Rapper and a Germany Based Electro Music Web Site – May Seek Millions in Damages | TheOfficialHashim.com

#hashim #electro #hiphop #musicmondays #libel #legal #lawsuit

Columbus, Ohio – Electro Hip Hop legend Jerry Calliste Jr. p.k.a. Hashim celebrated a 30 year anniversary on November 10, 2013 of the continued success of his 1983, Cutting Records, EDM and Hip Hop music classic “Al-Naafiysh (The Soul)” or as some refer to the song “It’s Time”. Hashim sold over 2.5 million units, appears on 150+ “definitive”, “best of”, “classic” Electro or Hip Hop music compilations, on at least 6 major and 3 independents labels and 4 popular video games.

Along with success and celebration comes negativity. “People can disagree and share their opinion but to outright lie, or twist and make up untruths and have it posted publicly to try and ruin my career or negatively affect my career will not be tolerated” said Calliste Jr.

Physical threats, negative statements and outright lies were made in the name of a rapper representative of an American based Hip Hop group on a Germany based Electro music web site, while being interviewed about his career and not Hashim’s. “At this time, I choose not to name and identify the rapper, the name of the artist’s group and the Germany based Electro music web site until my team and I decide my direction in the matter” said Calliste Jr. … READ MORE > http://theofficialhashim.com/site/2014/04/hashim-considers-filing-libel-suit-against-american-rapper-and-a-germany-based-electro-music-web-site-may-seek-millions-in-damages/

Google To Merge User Data Across Its Services – CNN

#it #privacy #tech #consulting #google #cnn #calliste

According to Mark Milian 2012, ” — Google plans to start combining information the company collects about each user of its various websites and services into a single profile, the company announced on Tuesday.

Previously, Google said it did not create comprehensive profiles across its various properties, including its leading search engine, Android smartphone operating system and YouTube video site.

In a statement, Alma Whitten, a Google privacy director, wrote that the changes “will mean a simpler, more intuitive Google experience.” She added, “Our recently launched personal search feature is a good example of the cool things Google can do when we combine information across products.”

That change, called Google Search Plus Your World, brought criticism from rivals Facebook and Twitter, which said that Google+ content now buries their own pages in Google’s search engine, and from people who do not care to use Google’s new social network.” > Click to Read More http://www.cnn.com/2012/01/24/tech/web/google-privacy-policy/index.html
