On today’s podcast I have my friend Cesar Abeid from my Podcast Mastermind Group and the Construction Industry Podcast on for a chat about how he uses social media in his business.
Speaking of Masterminds, I have started one with a couple of friends who are also started Tech related businesses in my city of Thunder Bay. Many of the lessons I am learning from my MasterMind are being applied to this little group of three. It should be a great experience for all of us.
