    Ep- 184 Simon Severino talks about what it takes to be a CEO

    This week on The Start Down Podcast, we were joined by Simon Severino as our special guest. He was excited to discuss three of my favorite topics: marketing, sales, and implementation.

    With his extensive background in the field, Simon was able to provide unique insights that I had not considered before. His enthusiasm for the topics made it easy for us to dive into deeper exploration and strategizing ways to best utilize these strategies in the business world. We discussed different tactics and possibilities for each one with fresh perspectives.

    Ultimately, listening to Simon at length provided an abundance of valuable new knowledge that I look forward to putting into practice soon!
