How To Keep Up With Fast Industry Change


I recently had the chance to sit down with Jason Feifer, Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, to chat about the takeaways from his new book, Build for Tomorrow. I’m telling you, everyone needs to read this book if they want to start out 2023 feeling strong and confident, regardless of what’s happening in the economy. 

Jason shares his insight about what drives success and highlights examples of underrated change-makers in entrepreneurship today. We discuss how to prepare for moments of major disruption and become more adaptable in business (and beyond). Jason has some incredible wisdom and a unique perspective on business, so you don’t want to miss this conversation!
