Connecting with the host:


  • 01:43 – “What worked for your firm to get you to where you are now is highly likely to not be enough to help your firm get through the phase that you’re at now and to the level that you want to operate at next, because quite a lot changes as your firm grows and scales.”
  • 07:54 – “If you have issues in the foundation that start showing them to you at a particular stage and you choose to ignore them those problems are not going to go away in fact they’re going to become larger.”
