Tactical strategy for an Artists brain

I appreciate this podcast for its digestible and consistent delivery of inspiring and implementable strategies. Like many artists turned entrepreneur I’m great with the creative, but struggle with the linear day to day strategy it takes to grow and scale a business. I have found this podcast incredibly helpful in understanding concepts of operations, implementing true strategy, and having the mindset of a leader I need to serve my clients at the highest level.

KnopfKnows Solutions ,

The Tactical Leader consistently delivers tremendous value

The Tactical Leader is easily one of the most impactful and inspiring podcasts out there in regards to personal and professional development. Zack has a way of repetitively delivering value to his listeners through strong conversations surrounding life and leadership lessons. The best part is that he lives it himself so he is a highly credible authority on all things leadership. Do yourself a favor and tune in. You will be happy that you did.
