Highlights:

08:02: So, business owners, you know that it is not easy to empower employees. Why? You’re scared to fail. You don’t make mistakes. And when you make mistakes, you put in the extra hours to do that. When someone else makes a mistake, it’s out of your control. You don’t feel comfortable. So the reality is that there is no shortcut to this. You’re going to have to give autonomy, and you’re going to have to sometimes do things in parallel.

16:00: So the reality is that marketing in general, for, I’m going to say, more than 90 percent of my clients, is very much an educational journey. Which is why they’re probably hiring me. The reality is that a lot of companies go, “I don’t know where to start.” And they go, “Well, where have you started?” And they go, “Well, I’ve done this.” And I can probably ask 5 or 6 questions within 5 minutes. And I’ll be able to identify why they’re not successful.

26:58: When you start your business, you’re going to have to work with people you don’t like because you have to get it going. You have to cross that chasm. You know, you’ve got to make sure you’ve got your case studies and your success track record. But once you do that, don’t work with someone you don’t like. It’s not worth it ever.
