Lee has managed multiple offices and hundreds of people of all ages and was named in the 40 under 40 by PRWEEK Magazine.

If you haven’t listened to, studied, and applied all that Lee shared during our earlier interviews…I highly encourage you to add episodes 180 and 523 to your list of vital priorities.
