A different approach
This laidback southern style podcast for entrepreneurs or those needing a punch has something for anyone. I have owned businesses in my life and loved the excitement of turning the key in my door and treating clients as I think they should be treated...but then what....how do you keep on growing or get the courage to jump ahead?
I enjoy how Mike Steward does not interrupt but prompts to get to the important stuff and let’s us hear what his guests have to say. Very interesting and I take away many good points.
