About This Episode

What do chess and business strategy have in common?  A heck of a lot if you ask me…

In this episode, I walk through my process of treating strategic business planning like a game of chess…thinking more than 3 moves ahead and you’ll win at successfully achieving any business goal you set for yourself.
