Catch Customers, Drive Growth

Please check out this podcast I did with Kevin Craine for Everyday MBA. In it, I share insights from my book Lean Brands. This is really a good time to practice being agile and scrappy. When it is time for all of us to get back to work, don’t let existing competitors define your value proposition. Reframe the way you look at your category. Rediscover what consumers want in today’s new reality and then quickly adapt to meet these new needs.  https://everyday-mba.com/luis-pedroza/
