Wish you could get a crash course in business administration, without the expensive price tag?
Want to know how you can provide more value in your current job to increase your chances of a promotion or raise?
Are you exploring the possibility of turning your side hustle into a full-time business, but have no idea where to start?
Today, Josh Kaufman, bestselling author of The Personal MBA, joins us on the show to discuss all three of these situations and much more.
In Josh’s words, “I think in general, business as a domain of knowledge is one of those things that once you learn it…it can help you in all sorts of different areas, even outside of business.” Regardless of whether you’re a teacher, graphic designer, entrepreneur, junior level employee, or manager, becoming familiar with business basics can change your perspective on work and the part you can play in your role.
Josh also chats about the five fundamental parts of every business – value creation, marketing, sales, value delivery, and finance – that everyone should master.
Josh’s years of entrepreneurial endeavors, business coaching, and experience working at Procter and Gamble color this conversation with real-world examples that are simple to understand.
