In today’s episode of The Karen Kenney Show, we’re diving deep with one of my beloved mentors & friends, the one-and-only Bill Baren - Chief Executive Officer of The Big Shift LLC & Chief Product Officer of Empowered Education.
Known as the “Business Oracle”, Bill is a world-renowned business coach, educator, and a serial entrepreneur. He’s started and grown four different multi-million dollar companies & has mentored hundreds of 7-figure CEOs. Trust me you guys, he’s a wicked smarty-pants when it comes to all things business & helping mission-driven coaches step into their true genius and make their impact known in the world.
I love this conversation because we had a blast talking about everything from - being an entrepreneur, tough love, spiritual development, intuition, playing poker and "being the walking embodiment of your work". I hope you enjoy listening to this conversation with my wise, successful & funny friend as much as I loved having it! If some part of this resonates with you, please let us know and share it with someone you love!
