What You'll Discover In This Episode:
Sometimes it’s fun to know what others are doing in their businesses. Others who are grinding hard. Others who overcome challenges. Others who succeed.
It’s not just fun though. It’s educational. Sometimes surprising. Maybe even mind blowing to know what goes on behind the scenes in other businesses.
And that’s why I find entrepreneurial case studies so intriguing.
Because they focus on business owners just like me and you who are dealing with similar problems but have different insights to offer based on their own experiences, wisdom, and knowledge.
In this episode of Productivity Straight Talk, I sit down with wife and husband team Jenny and Ben Slingerland, the Owner & Principal Designer and Chief Operating Officer of Black Ink Interiors, a full-service interior design firm operating out of Scottsdale, Arizona. We take an in-depth look behind the scenes in their business and discuss everything from Jenny being a quick start, naturally having too many ideas and not enough focus or time to see them to fruition, to discovering ways to keep her ADD in check, and everything in between. The episode is full of nuggets of wisdom I have no doubt could be applied to your own business.
