Today “On the Brink” Podcast Goes Live!!

Today, June 19th, We Go Live!!
Listen to our new podcast, designed just for you.  

We know how hard it is to be agile in these fast changing times. Our “On the Brink” podcast is all about how to “see, feel and think” in new ways—so you can build agility and adaptability into your toolkit and successfully capitalize on the new and the next. It is designed for business leaders, successful entrepreneurs, and those of you who are building companies. It is also about how to build a better “you.”

In fact, that’s the subject of my first podcast:

How to “see, feel and think” in new ways to reignite your business or career.
