114 - New Month, New Consistency, New Gauntlet Throwing

Have you ever had the gauntlet throw down on you?

Well, me neither…until now!

My good friends and fellow-podcasters Ralph and Carol Lynn Rivera of the Carbon Based Business Units podcast threw it down and gave me a challenge. They, specifically Ralph, heard me mention on the podcast how I plan to grow my company Real Accountable to a $2-5MM business and he wants to know why?...

…why not $1MM? Why not $10MM? They’re interested in my answer because they’re wondering, “what's the right amount of revenue to aim for with their three businesses?” You can check out this lively discussion on Episode 181 of their Carbon Based Business Units podcast. 

I did my best to give them an intelligible answer and I also made an announcement about The Make it Snappy Productivity Show! You’ll notice the show notes came out at the exact same time the episode was released! We’re getting more snappy over here…listen for the full story and we’ll see you next week with my man Brian Musial.
