These include Sales, Marketing, Digital & Business Coach, Podcast Hosting training, and helping other improve. That’s why I felt he was a perfect fit and guest on ‘1% Better’. We connected last year as we both presented topics on ‘International Podcast Day’ in September 2018 and we agreed to do an episode. I didn’t mess around too much with this one as I dived straight into Ian’s Entrepreneurial Journey and it flowed from there. As always, we cover a broad range of topics and share a number of practical tips, tools, insights that you could take something of value from.
