Gale Stafford has recently answered some tough questions in his own business. Questions like how to validate a market focus, and how to deal with the fear and doubt that accompany a low-information high-stakes decision.
I wanted to talk to Gale because he is still technically in the positioning process, although he's chosen a position and he's more in the late validation and early execution stage of that process.
That means he has just recently dealt with some issues that are normally a huge a mystery.
- How do you properly validate your focus on a particular market segment?
- How do you prevent fear and doubt from derailing you?
- How do you get started executing on a new position? What are the first steps?
What is The Consulting Pipeline Podcast?
Podcast outreach services: Lemme save you some time. No.
Normally I'd love to consider your guest but... no. Why?
The show is in hiatus. I'm not publishing new episodes now because I'm developing a new podcast. You'd know that if you looked at the title or the few minutes of content of the latest episode, but some of you seem to have this magic ability to not see that obvious signal. :)
The rest of you: WELCOME! There's gold in them thar archive of episodes.
