Larry is one of those guys you can hang out and talk with forever. He is a walking fountain of wisdom with such rich stories and experiences that you find yourself drawn in to hear more. I really enjoyed interviewing Larry. He shares some very interesting points about:
How reading everyday changed his life
How customer service made his business
How he managed expectations around funding
The surprising discovery of whom became a customer and whom did not
Why he named his company with his name
The extent with which he invests in his people and the huge rewards for doing so
My favorite quote: “I’m not a startup, I’m a kick-start.”
If you have spent an even a little bit of time on LinkedIn, you have seen Tom Goodwin. Tom has been awarded “#1 Voice in Marketing” on LinkedIn 2017 & 2018 with over 550,000 followers. He is a self-described marketing provocateur who asks great questions about how tech is enhancing and detracting from our lives. He is sort of an “anti-guru” who really captures the attention of any audience he is in front of.
He’s a bright mind who asks brilliant questions. I asked him to come on the podcast because I wanted to get his take on how he sees leadership changing as tech becomes a more integrated part of our lives. And, he did not disappoint. Great interview with a thought leader who I expect will be with us for many years to come.
