Mark Monchek | Building a Sustainable Business

Are you running your business consciously? Strange question, but a serious one. Too often I see entrepreneurs running crazy, yet all of the frenetic activity lacks consciousness and intentionality.

The result is usually a business that fails to serve the owner, the employees, and the customers as well as it could.

To the extent you can force yourself to make the “unconscious”, “conscious” you find that the right results come faster and easier…

You can cut out the clutter and nonsense.

In this interview, Mark Monchek will yank you into a conscious reality, and he’ll give you a roadmap for build a sustainable business…one that lasts.

In this interview you’ll discover:

  • How to build your “Opportunity Team”
  • How to tap into the skills, wisdom, and network of your Opportunity Team
  • The key qualities of the people you pick for your Opportunity Team (and one surprising quality)
  • The secret to scaling your business
  • What “appropriate scale” is and how to determine the appropriate scale for your business
  • How to create your own “Resource Map” to identify how to find your next customer
