Call the Shot, Make the Shot (Part 2): 1 question CEOs are asking to make sure their plan gets executed

Here is what Sean Spector, Founder and CEO of Dropoff says is critical to success, “I think lots of people have ideas of, ‘here’s an idea to solve this, or here’s an idea to solve that.’ It’s that next step, trying to do it: that’s the scariest thing in the world. If you’re not willing to fail, you’ll almost never succeed.”

In the last episode, we started to show you how to build a strategic plan that unlocks growth in a competitive market – specifically, unpacking the concept of strategic pillars.
