We’re kicking off the new season of the video blog with an inside look at our quarterly planning meeting. I was super excited to present this to the company ever since we completed our executive retreat, and today I finally got that chance. Not only do you guys finally get to see what I was […]
Accountability is a word that makes people cringe. Sure, it’s great to think up ideas and strategies and all, but when it comes time to actually implement them, there’s a lot of shifty eyes and sideways glances.
