What’s In This Episode:
Business isn’t supposed to get personal. Business is business, they say, and we’re supposed to keep our personal lives out of it. But can we? More importantly, should we?
This week, Jill calls up three colleagues to find out just how personal business can get, if at all. She speaks to business guru and game changer Melissa Ford, KazSource founder, CEO, and podcast host Eric Kasimov, and award-winning social media speaker and course author, Marki Lemons-Ryhal. They have very different backgrounds and business experiences but what they reveal may surprise you.
