In this episode, I speak with Jon Dwoskin – an executive advisor, business coach and motivational speaker who’s been called the “business whisperer” for his skilled and compassionate insights into what can keep a corporate culture from thriving. We talk about how to take a business from unstuck to thriving with a particular focus on the importance and methods of creating and using detailed plans. Something for everyone within.
At age 23, he created one of the first internet marketing companies in America, then went on to great success at several national commercial real estate firms. Jon has built, trained, expanded and restructured both sales teams and corporate structures, but after 20 years in a C-suite, knew it was time to make a business out of being himself.
The Jon Dwoskin Experience teaches the secrets, hard work and discipline required to “Think Big. Very Big!” A prolific business blogger, Jon is the author of The Think Big Movement, a business fable about getting unstuck and transforming a business. A 15-year cancer survivor, he lives with his wife and two children in Michigan, where he is active in community organizations.
