We tend to glamorize the role of leader and it is rewarding...however, it's not all cotton candy and lollipops. It can be even more important to hone your leadership skills when it's personal and, quite frankly, nothing is more personal than leading your own company. This week's guest, Pete Reitano, is uniquely qualified to share some strategies with us on the tribulations and triumphs of leading your team when it is your own business (and he's done it more than once). He shares, quite honestly, some of the lessons he's had to learn and how he used that learning to catapult his team to the next level when the opportunity came again. Turn the volume up and get ready to get WOWED by this incredibly smart leader!
