This week’s theme: Decision Making
Whether you are an entrepreneur or an employee. Whether you are asking for a raise, asking for the sale, or asking for a date, there are certain decisions and actions that need to take place to ensure success. What about asking for donations to ensure a nonprofit can make a real difference in the world? YES. Over the past several years, The Bigham Agency has raised over $2.2 Billion to feed the hungry, house the homeless, clothe the naked, and heal the sick . . . which is no small feat. Our guest expert shares his process for decision making and more on today’s show.
