If you dream of running a million-dollar business, you need to adjust your mindset. On this week’s podcast, Gail and Erin sit down with entrepreneur Scott Oldford to discuss his successes and failures, and how to change your approach. “A business will not grow because of strategies and tactics,” said Scott. “A business will grow because the entrepreneur’s mind sees the scenario in a certain way. That is absolutely 100 percent possible to create.”
In today’s podcast, Gail and Erin talk with multi-award-winning designer Lisa Gielincki, principal at Lisa Gielincki Interior Design.
