My guest this week weathered intense setbacks early in his career. But Joshua Long actually looks back almost fondly at those times because he knows it shaped who he is today and allows him to see solutions when his clients can’t. Joshua is a consultant specializing in helping B2B companies overcome revenue plateaus, reduce risk, and experience rapid growth.
