On today’s episode, Tim Conley, who you may know from podcast fame of the Foolish Adventure Show (no more updated). Tim is known as a well respected and trusted business coach, or as he would prefer to be called, a business consultant. We got back into Tim’s back story: growing up in a small town in the Midwest, and how he managed to make his dreams come true. He tells us why he entered the Air Force, what he learnt there and how it impacted in his business. Also, Tim remembers the birth of the internet as we know it today, how he navigated those early years, and how he arrived to these days, coaching and consulting business owners.
I always learn when I talk to Tim, and listening this episode I’m sure you’ll learn something too. Enjoy.
