Employees are the Best Investment Opportunity for Businesses, say US Money Reserve CEO Angela Koch

When looking at their portfolios, smart investors try to discern if their holdings are diverse enough to keep their savings secure, leading many to consider gold coins as an alternative investment.

US Reserve is one such distributor of these coins, and while their reputation revolves around the quality of their product, CEO Angela Koch says it’s the time and effort invested in each employee that’s made the business a success.

The US Reserve has been the go-to distributor of gold, platinum, and silver coins for investors for nearly 20 years. From their headquarters in Austin, Texas, they’ve helped more than 500,000 clients expand their investment portfolios, and a well-taught workforce helped make it happen.

For Koch, the competition is too focused sales, and it’s a mood that’s spread throughout the industry. That presents a problem when deciding how to run an office. By placing employees into a limited role you run he risk of limiting the business’ growth in the process.

It’ll take time to develop, but Koch’s view of employee investment is one that helps them evolve professionally so they can grow personally. It’s a combination of hard and soft skills needed in the industry but can also be applied to their individual careers regardless of where that might take them.

Koch has three major areas of employee development, and the first is building confidence. An educated employee is one that knows the company, the industry, and their role in it. With that information they can make informed decisions to close out transactions.

This may not always generate the desired outcome, but Koch prefers action to hesitation. In her estimation, the act of second-guessing can complicate matters far worse than making a bad call, and in the event things do go wrong the team can come together to look for solutions.

Of course a confident employee will want to develop their strengths so they can be more capable in their roles. This doesn’t mean doing it all alone, but rather Koch says it’s important for an individual employee to learn what they do best and who on their team can be called upon for help in any given situation.

A workforce that can operate cohesively is one that will keep things running smoothly, for their satisfaction and that of the clients as well.

Both Confidence and strength count for a lot in the workplace, but they may not be accessible without balance. Knowing how to separate the two is the only way an employee can access the confidence and strength needed to perform.

Keeping work and home in their respective domains allowed Koch to perform her best and recharge as needed, taking her through a winding career to the top of one of the country’s largest gold coin distributors.

President Of U.S. Money Reserves Shares Reasons To Get Rid Of The Penny

U.S. Money Reserve, Inc., is an Austin, Texas, based firm that sells government-issued gold coins. The coins are one ounce each and can be silver, gold, or platinum.

U.S Money Reserve has been in business for over 10 years and has helped hundreds of thousands of people over those years purchase coins. When people call into this company, they talk to an account executive who is able to answer all their questions and help them meet their goals and objectives when it comes to owning valuable precious metal coins.

Philip N. Diehl is the president of U.S. Money reserve. He was also once the United States mint director. He recently appeared on CNN where he talked about eliminating the American penny.

There was recently a debate in England about eliminating their one-penny and two-pence coins which ultimately resulted in their choice to keep these coins in circulation. Read more: US Money Reserve | Manta and US Money Reserve | BizJournals

However, this did spark interest in the United States on whether the American penny should continue to be made. The penny was the first currency that the U.S. government minted. In 1909, Abraham Lincoln was chosen to be pictured on it.

Because of his image on the penny, it became a special part of American culture. The back of the penny has seen numerous design changes over the years, though, such as a wheat head and one showing the Lincoln monument in Washington D.C.

The penny used to be made of 95% copper and 5% zinc. During World War II, copper was needed for the war effort and so it was mostly removed from pennies. It was briefly made mostly of steel and nowadays it is 97.6 zinc and just 2.4% copper.

Philip Diehl of U.S. Reserve said that it costs nearly two cents to make each penny. The zinc comes mostly from China and costs the U.S. Treasury about $2.1 million a year to import.

Given current trade tensions between The U.S. and China, coupled with concerns about how zinc mining negatively impacts the environment, raises additional concerns about whether pennies should continue to be made beyond just monetary reason.

Another reason to eliminate pennies is that people are not using nearly as much cash as they used to, especially pennies. They often end up sitting in drawers for months to years at a time. Some people even throw them away when they get them as change. This all adds up to more and more public support for getting rid of them.
