Peter, you have spent 20-plus years in the financial and software industries. Share your background.
After completing my Master’s in computer science, there was the challenge of finding my first job. In my search, I was hired by a small Software company in midtown Manhattan to help develop custom software for the dental industry. As with any project, I immersed myself in the dental sector to produce the best features assigned to me. Working with a small team required me to understand all the software development cycle facets.
This fun and challenging opportunity propelled my tech skills. It helped mold me into the software engineer I needed to be, so I moved on to the life insurance sector after a short time, where I spent a year building custom software for a life insurance carrier. While working for the life insurance carrier, I wanted to challenge myself more, so I set my goals on Wall Street. I had two separate interviews before I landed the second opportunity to work at Morgan Stanley in the mutual funds department doing reconciliations. During my eight years at Morgan Stanley, I increased my leadership and problem-solving skills while gaining a general understanding of how successful organizations work and operate.
You are an expert in understanding how small businesses can create revenue stream opportunities by integrating emerging technology into their business model for sustainability and staying ahead of the competition. How are you helping small businesses today?
COVID-19 has shown the world the importance of technology related to everyday business and staying connected in the “new normal,” as they would say. Many businesses were caught off guard because they never adopted emerging and sustainable digital technology into their business infrastructure. Small businesses were hit the hardest in scaling up to use technology quickly because it can be costly if not working with the right professionals.
The team at Worldcast Live has been able to help many small businesses by showing them the power of running lead generation ads, proper setup of an effective website, mastering tools like video editing, and using creative ways to drive foot traffic back into their establishment. It is not easy work, but small businesses are the country’s backbone, and we need to do our part to ensure they get through these challenging times.
