So helpful! Great content! A MUST listen.

I look forward to listening to this podcast every week. There is SO much awesome information, and I love the laid-back feel that allows the conversation to just go where it needs to go - instead of a lot of other shows that feel really scripted. Cameron gets some truly impressive guests on here, and I love hearing their "rise to the top" stories. If you're a COO, business owner, or just love business - SUBSCRIBE. You won't be sorry!!! And you'll learn a lot!

New listener and excited

Hey Cameron,

I’m new to your podcast and really looking forward to listening. I just listened to episode 000.

The ceo I work with told me about you.

I’m grateful to find a tribe of COO people. And I like what you said that you weren’t really an entrepreneur yet at the same time you didn’t think like an employee. That resonated with me.

If you know the Kolbe A index I’m a 8822 which makes me strong as a planner and executor. However I’m eager to add to my skill set and context in order to bring even more value to the table.

Love hearing from other COO's

It is great to listen to all of these COO's and hear their stories. It is insightful to hear about their work days and meeting rhythms. Each COO has such different business tasks backgrounds and it is helpful to hear how they each support their CEO in different ways.
