In this episode of the Millionaire Mindcast, we have an amazing guest Scott Omelianuk who shares insights and wisdom about content consumption habits, amazing business stories that impacted the community during this crisis, and tips on how to adapt and thrive in this current landscape!

Scott Omelianuk is an entrepreneur, entrepreneurship and marketing lecturer, media and brand builder, consumer connector, brand Lead of the premiere voice of America's entrepreneurs, owners and business builders via, Inc. Magazine (Editor-in-Chief), the Inc 5000, the Inc., and more. His responsibilities include developing new lines of business to serve the entrepreneurial community and overseeing the events and content that makeup the Inc. ecosystem.

He achieves remarkable honors as named to the Ad Age A-list, received Ad Age’s Media Vanguard award for implementing the first user generated content in national media, and for pioneering QR codes, digital video, AR, content marketing, and building a juggernaut lead generation business. Also, brokered corporate partnerships, now worth billions.

Just like what most of the businesses do during this world crisis, Scott’s team also did remote work. They’ve struggled at first as doing events is a big part of their business. But they embraced the situation and figured out how to produce products remotely, and makeup revenue.

This challenging year left Scott optimistic. Despite all the conflict, he is still quite positive about human nature in general. He suggests that businesses should be innovating to not be left behind and never be obsolete. Therefore, business owners should change their business over time, and adapt to the new trend just like what the Inc. company did that primarily supports entrepreneurship.

Relative to this, make time to tease apart your revenue to make sure you’re always planning for the future so that you don’t end up in the swamp. Listening to, and intuitive understanding of your customers, clients, consumers, and the community is key. Also, engaging with them empathetically is an important thing.

For Scott, it’s not just about making money, it’s about carving time out to have a relationship with your time, carving time out for yourself. Most importantly, make sure you don’t sacrifice your family for your business to avoid regrets in the end!
