Final Round – “Breaking Down the Recipe for Success”
What systems would you go back and put into place sooner?

Have an annual strategic plan – and have day-to-day and month-to-month achievable goals.
How to exceed expectations and add the most value?
An individual would understand exactly how successful they can be – and I’d help them have a plan to achieve that success.
