Running a business is never easy.
That’s why it can be tempting – especially in times of struggle – to make up stories. Or to use white lies, if you will.
Kind of like …acting, you might say.
That may be why this week’s podcast guest, Corey Blake, a long time working actor, found the transition from acting to business a natural one.
Corey is not only an actor, but an accomplished storyteller, TEDx speaker, and Founder and CEO of Round Table Companies. He is also a publisher at Conscious Capitalism Press.
This week Corey joins John to discuss his life as an actor, the events of his life which led him to his current success, and the value and power in being vulnerable.
