2020 is drawing to a close and although it will be sometime before life returns to a state of normal, many businesses and entrepreneurs have embraced innovation and pivoted towards new strategic directions. Some businesses have had to move their entire operations online and adapt to new workflows and systems. Some have completely changed their products and offerings. Some businesses have not survived and some have grown exponentially.
One of the biggest conversations being had at present is that of peoples change in mindset when it comes to the work/life balance and making money. We explore this with Glen Carlson, Paul Dunn and Mike Clark in this episode.
