#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.

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/

Hashim to perform 25 year anniversary events in 2010

Well I guess it was inevitable that I would go back in the studio to write, produce and  then on the road to perform again.  Hashim Music (the publisher) turns 25 this year and will celebrate with a series of events throughout the U.S. and abroad.

The last time Cutting Records recording and performing artist Hashim played out was back in 1986 to a sold out crowd of 15,000+ at the older Wembley Arena in England. Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Mantronix both Roxanne’s, Sir Mix Alot the Aleems and other artists were on the bill.

Although I (Hashim) was invited to perform at Brixton Academy in 2003 due to the double booking of two other artists (not related to Hashim in anyway) on the same ticket the promoter had to cancel the event. I was ready with breakdancers and all and looking forward to that event. But I guess stuff happens.

Now in 2010 I am invited to perform an electronic music festival in Detroit. I’m really hoping this event goes through. It’s time I get out there again and share my music past and present. The event will take place this May 29th through June 1st.

As recent as late 2009 Hashim’s music is being pitted against Daf Punk’s music on video game producer and distributor Activision’s DJ Hero Renegade Edition. The licensing has been trememndous over the past few years. I, Hashim appear on 75+ dance music compilation’s primarily in Europe, Grand Theft Auto Vice City’s (2003) Wild Style radio station, the sound track, game track and tv commercial and Sony Computer Entertaiment of America (SCEA) NBA Shootout 2004.  So  “Just feel it!” and let’s get this party started yall!

What About Scholarships?

Ok I’ve been very busy of late researching, preparing applications, and requesting references from friends and associates to gain academic scholarships.

I’m a dual major  IT and MIS student. I have a lot of scholarship deadlines coming up on Monday June 1st and so far, in my opinion my persistence and hard work is looking good.

FastWeb.com provided me with an abundance of scholarship opportunities. Any tips from any of you that have gained scholarships in the past?
