023: Charlie Gilkey of Productive Flourishing | How to Understand the Small Business Lifecycle [Part 1 of 2]

smart business revolution podcast, entrepreneurship, small business, entrepreneurCharlie Gilkey is a man of many talents and titles: soldier, philosopher, trainer, consultant, coach… and now author.

The former U.S. Army logistics officer is the creator of Productive Flourishing, his online homebase where he shares his wisdom on how to build lasting and enduring businesses.

He is perhaps most well known as a coach who, as it says in his site’s tagline, “helps businesses and organizations start finishing the stuff that matters.”  That may sound simple, but it’s not.

I first met Charlie over a year ago when I took an online course he offered called the Epic Launch Playbook. I was immediately impressed with his depth of knowledge, patience, and his knack for answering questions in fully formed paragraphs.

Charlie Gilkey is the Founder of Productive Flourishing and a business coach and author.When he announced he was coming out with a book, I knew I had to have him on my podcast.  That book is “The Small Business Lifecycle” (affiliate link) and it’s received rave reviews. If you are a small business owner — or want to be one some day — I highly recommend it.
