Verne Harnish Best Selling Author
What a privilege to have Mr. Harnish on the show! Patrick Lencioni, one of my favorite business book authors said this about Verne “Verne Harnish is more committed to helping companies grow than any other person on the planet.” You can see and hear his passion for business in this podcast, and in his many keynotes online he has done all across the world. Verne and I went into the 4P’s for helping each of you as entrepreneurs bounce forward in this crisis (People, Pivot, Process, Price.) Verne also shared with me this guide from Forbes below on opening your business back up! click here for guide.
