If you are reading this I think it’s safe to assume that you have some sort of skills, passion and talent and you want to find a way to make money from those things. To do that we often dream up a way to package those skills, passion and talent then put them out for the world to consume.
What if we listened to our clients first?
Listen in as Dane talks with customer obsessed, business strategist, Tara Gentile. As Tara’s career has progressed over the years it may look a bit haphazard at first glance. If you take a second look it is evident that as her career has evolved the constant thread line is her focus on her customer. She is always looking for ways she can serve them, meet their needs and bring value based on her skills, passion and talent. The result of her outward focus on the real need of her customer has opened up all sorts of opportunity.
This episode is sure to leave you with lots to consider about how you are relating to your customers.
