As the world changes and you’re busy focusing on what new tools to use, business models, pivots you have to do in your business, there is another thing you might want to pay attention to: yourself. Today’s guest helps ask some key questions on how you can evolve and grow during these critical pivots.

Todd Palmer is a collaborative business advisor and CEO of Extraordinary Advisors. He went from being a struggling entrepreneur with $600,000 in debt to making it in the INC. 5000 (A total of six times!) as one of America’s fastest-growing companies. Todd is also the author of the popular book, The Job Search Process.

Todd learned at an early age that he could only depend on himself and that the path of entrepreneurship was the only real way for him to make it. But because of the way he was wired, his business got so paralyzed and so dependent on him and he was the main factor as to why his company had bottleneck and growth issues.

Todd was stuck. He didn’t know where to go from here and despite business doing relevant okay, he was broke. The only option at the time to get out of this and his intense imposter syndrome was to hire a coach. He knew there was no way he could fail or quit. He was backed into a corner.

When Todd came up with his list of core values for the company, everything changed. He began hiring for the DNA and not for the resume. His company began thriving because of it.
