Workshops

If you are in Columbus, Ohio, you can attend one of my Growth Cube workshops, which are being held monthly!  We are testing live streaming to reach a wider audience.  The workshops are educational and interactive, and many times include a panel of CEO’s who have done what you want to do!  Register for my next workshop HERE:

I have been doing many podcasts.  I recently spoke on Voice America’s Business Series: ‘Innovative Leaders Driving Thriving Organizations’ with Maureen Metcalf.  I was also a guest on Money Sense with Karen Ellenbecker where we broke down the Growth Cube concepts and talked about how they convert into financial growth of your company.  I am also actively doing podcasts, most recently with my friends at Conquering Columbus and with Elio Harmon from 614 Startups.
