    #285 - The Hidden Superpower of your Organization with Houston Goodwin

    In this episode, host John Laurito is joined by the President and CEO of 97 Display, Houston Goodwin, as they talk about the power of having the right culture in your organization. Houston also shares the people-first business approach that his business has adapted and what traits matter to him the most in bringing people into their organization.
