Side Affects Episode #83: Which Companies Figured “It Out” Following The Last Recession

In This Episode

Join MB CEO Scott McGohan and his long-time associate, Ed Eppley from The Eppley Group, as they reflect on the recession of 2008-09 and how this health crisis imitates in emotion but is caused by different circumstances. Scott and Ed discuss how business owners, managers, and executives have accepted this fate of struggle for their business, but should look to the 2010 Harvard Business Review article, Roaring Out of Recession, to find the courage and confidence to overcome any fear that may prohibit being proactive toward growth.
