A conversation with Onward Nation

I recently was lucky enough to spend some time with Stephen Woessner. He is a legit entrepreneur and has a sixth sense about business and systems.  

He was kind enough to invite me onto his show, Onward Nation, where we covered topics ranging from the psychology of what stops people from taking action to some basic blocking and tackling “cyber hygiene” step business owners can take to drastically reduce their risk.  

In short, it was great fun to talk about a subject I care about with someone who is a master of his craft and so obviously has a mission on his heart to help business owners.

Thank you Stephen!
