Need to grow your business, fast? Hear how!
Bruce Eckfeldt roams in the same territories that I do, but his background and experience are rather different. He was an architect until he realized that learning how to be an architect is very different from being one. So he skipped over into business and never looked back. In our conversation today, we dig deep into what he learned as a CEO in an Inc. 500 company, building his own company, and then selling it and pivoting to redesign his career. Now he helps others “soar." Do you have a business you want to grow? Listen in!
Watch and listen to our conversation
Bruce’s passion lies in the architecture of business strategy and development
Our talk today is about growth. Growth demands strategic focus, clear accountability, ongoing communication, cultural improvement, team alignment and cash flow optimization, along with other core components of a thriving business. Bruce and I discuss huddles, Master Minds and strategy methodologies that help you and your team get focused and stay on it.
