The pace of change is so fast. That’s why we’re always hearing people say that the only constant is change. But even if you’re tired of hearing it, you know it’s true. After the economic crash of 2008, you probably realized that your initial strategic planning – like that 5-year plan you developed in college – is no longer working. So how do you transform this plan into something that will succeed in all this constant change? I brought Mark Monchek on the show today to help sort out that specific issue.

He has the inside information on how to build a business that will last and scale, even amid constant economic fluctuations.

He calls these tips his “culture of opportunity” and you’ll learn how to create one today.
