Have you ever been in a meeting that seems to drag on for hours? Maybe you have been the one holding the meeting, and you can see from your employees’ faces that they are not absorbing anything you are saying. If this sounds familiar, today’s episode is for you. I’ve got top business consultant, author, speaker, and founder of COO Alliance, Cameron Herold, on the show to share his thoughts on entrepreneurship and how to become the best COO you can.
Listen in as we discuss the importance of picking the right moment to hire a second in command and why you should consider hiring an executive assistant first. You will learn how to build your business even throughout the uncertainty that is the current pandemic, how to become a better leader, and how to raise entrepreneurial children.
In this episode, we cover topics such as:
- The traits of an entrepreneur.
- How to raise entrepreneurial children.
