This was the interview of the 1000 questions. Jade started with a very succinct and short elevator pitch. He talked about having purpose before profit and providing honest feedback that accelerated a company’s growth.

A great old friend, Nancy was just starting her latest venture as a TEC (a CEO peer mastermind) Chair. In her excitement, she went a little too long on her elevator pitch and had to be stopped.

chala , , , , , ,

Like many of the health coaches I’ve had on the show, Tim began his pitch by talking about his story.
