Demanding Respect -- As a founder and CEO at the ripe old age of 25 when I launched my first business, I frequently felt that I wasn't respected or was viewed as just some kid with a little gimmick business. I had to learn how to earn my stripes by going above and beyond, staying steadfast in my belief that what I was bringing to my industry was going to revolutionize an industry.
The Art of Delegation -- Many business owners struggle with effectively delegating tasks. In this episode, we discuss how to structure the roles within your company for an employee to come in and thrive as well as how to then manage that relationship for future successes.
