Jeff Rogers - The Key is Authenticity
This week's podcast features the experience and vision of Jeff Rogers, the founder/CEO of OneAccord Partners in Kirkland, Wa. Jeff is the kind of business leader you want and need in your life: Focused on you (a great listener, BTW) and loaded to the brim with authenticity. He challenges and raises the bar of many business owners in the world, whether assisting them through a sale or transition, or just influencing as best he can. He's the real deal.
I encourage you to listen, subscribe and grow. Jeff is a leader for a reason. Enjoy!
