The mere thought of putting your employees BEFORE your customers is almost considered blasphemous for most entrepreneurs. However, to become a truly authentic business, generating a ‘People-First Culture’ can be instrumental in its success.
Welcome to The Psychology of Entrepreneurship, a candid and revealing series that follows Ronsley Vaz and his guests, as they strive to unravel the inner workings of the entrepreneurial mind and explain why even the most successful among us experience Imposter Syndrome.
If you are someone who is holding back, feeling unworthy of your success or questioning your competency as a professional, this podcast is for you.
Michel Falcon is a critically acclaimed hospitality entrepreneur with over 150 team members under his wing and an ever-growing restaurant portfolio. In just two years, Michel has hit $15,000,000 in profitable revenue, but that isn’t something that genuinely interests him – it’s all about the employees, customer experience and work culture.
Michel is an international keynote speaker that has travelled throughout North America, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Spain, Nigeria and Belgium. His sterling reputation as a culture-building leader has meant he has partnered up with some of the world’s top tier brands, including Alfa Romeo, McDonalds Canada, Electronic Arts, Volkswagen and Toyota.
He creates a customer experience and employee engagement strategies in a bid to generate a highly functioning People-First Culture.
In October 2018, Michel released his book, “People-First Culture: Build a Lasting Business by Shifting Your Focus From Profits to People,” which instantly became a five-star-rated bestseller.
In this volume, Michel and Ronsley explore the important dynamics of a healthy work culture and the qualities that business owners should be looking for when onboarding a new team member. They also discuss why solopreneurs get lonely, and how teams bring great connections.

- The three topics that helped Michel build his $15 million business
