In Episode 52, Glenn Pasch & Jim Fitzpatrick, CEO of CBT News, discuss his journey from working in a car dealership, heading up a marketing agency, to embracing digital marketing and now running a highly successful online new show.
We discuss how he saw where he needed to pivot his business, and what it took to create the new path, sell it to his team and fight his way through the doubt. Too often, business leaders see the need to pivot, but either wait too long or talk themselves out of it. Only to end up losing marketshare and missing the opportunity for long term success.
A great conversation. Hope you enjoy Remember to share and subscribe!!! New episodes every Wednesday.
