Here’s what we talked about:

Ever wondered why some people expand, and others seem to contract ?

 Episode 74, The Essential Ingredient; Communication brings us back to basics and reminds us that without it expansion won't happen.

 

Key Discussions Points

 

  • The communication triangle
  • Why focusing on your strengths is important as you scale
  • The entrepreneurial operating system
