As a small business owner or leader, you’ve got your hands full. You’ve built the company up to where it’s successful, but you’re having trouble breaking through to the next level. You’re spending so much time on budget and personnel issues that your long-range plan is just to try to the end of the week. You feel all alone because you can’t talk to anyone about it. And you’re not sleeping. Wouldn’t it be great to hear advice from business leaders who were in the same place you are and now have billion-dollar enterprises?
The June 4th Asher Sales Sense Podcast – “What Small Business Leaders Can Learn from Billion-Dollar Entrepreneurs” – features host John Asher with guest Ron Wills, President of CEO Focus Maryland/DC and President and Founder of the National Association of Business Owners & Entrepreneurs in the Washington DC Metro Area. Ron recently interviewed four billion-dollar entrepreneurs and will share the lessons he’s learned of their success that directly apply to small business owners and leaders.
What challenges did these billion-dollar entrepreneurs face? How did they meet those challenges? What typical mistakes hold small businesses back? Do business coaches really help? What kinds of adjustments and new thinking are necessary for gaining break-through growth? Tune in on June 4th to learn the answers to these questions and start getting some sleep and enjoy going to work again.
