Getting on my "business shaming" soapbox | MMPT

2/29/2016
More
I’ve been witnessing a lot of “business shaming” happening around me lately. Meaning, one business owner shaming another type of business owner for it being (or not being) a certain type of “entrepreneurship”.

I got stung by solicited feedback | Monday Morning Pep Talk

1/11/2016
More
You guys know how important feedback is to our business. Feedback means growth. Feedback means accelerated success. But sometimes soliciting and receiving feedback can be a tough path to head down (which is why a lot of people simply don't do it - they're afraid of what they are going to hear). I recently embarked down my own path of solicited feedback and I'm sharing the response I got. Luckily, I was in the privacy of my own office - alone - and could react first, then follow a more normal...
