While you’re using all of your leadership skills at once, building them all simultaneously is incredibly difficult. So, in this episode, I’m identifying the skills that you need to be an effective and successful CEO, and I’m laying out how to strategically build those leadership skills.

Tune in this week to discover the skills that every founder needs to build, and why, especially in the early days, you are your business’s most valuable asset.
