We are about to REACH 100 episodes of the REACH OR MISS podcast.
And I can’t help but feel a bit sentimental about it.
I want to discuss why I started this podcast, and address the question: did I achieve at least some of the main objective that brought me to launch this podcast almost two years ago (March 20th 2017, to be exact).
I won’t tell the whole story now, just the main facts.
In January 2008, after 21 years of executive marketing positions in leading multinational and local brands, I founded a company aiming to help entrepreneurs and startup founders become successful by winning market category leadership using the right marketing and sales approach.
