The Most Important Part Of Business: Relationships

If you find the business of people and relationships puzzling or just plain difficult, this episode is a great place to start. Often, Marketers and Entrepreneurs max out their skill set and become the best they can be, but run into problems and stagnate because of their relationships at work and home. It’s not wrong to be bottom-line driven and compelled to make things happen, but putting people first has so many benefits. In this episode, you’ll hear more from CEO Molly Pittman and CMO John Grimshaw. They agree that prioritizing people and ‘being a good human’ is the most critical thing you can do for your happiness, health, and success in business.

You Will Learn:

  • The most critical time to prioritize relationships
  • Why making your relationships right is the best thing you can do (for you and your business)
  • Why you need to be a cool Boss (and what that looks like)


And More…
