Good Morning — I’m Stephen Woessner, CEO of Predictive ROI and your host for Onward Nation. I’m excited to share the lessons and the insights of today’s episode with you — but before I do that — I owe you a really big thank you.
I owe you a big thank you, Onward Nation because each and every day you give my team and I the hug or the push we need to get better. Each day — I get to walk into my office and have this amazing privilege of hanging out with you — while you and I both learn from some of the top business owners on this planet. You are right there beside me — as we learn together. And all of the feedback you share — the tweets you send — hitting me up on LinkedIn — and dropping me lines of support on Facebook…I appreciate all of it and am so very grateful.
We are now impacting business owners in 102 countries and I don’t take that lightly. That didn’t happen by accident — it happened because of you finding something here in our episodes and then taking the time to share it with your friends and co-workers.
And because of this amazing journey over the last 800+ episodes — my life has been enriched in so many wonderful ways. I have been invited to write a book, speak at events, and Predictive ROI has grown, too. And all of that — all of that — is because of this wonderful Onward Nation community that you, my friend, are a part of.
So thank you — from the bottom of my heart — thank you! Airing 800 episodes has been a real joy and pleasure — and I assure you — we are just getting started. From our daily Onward Nation episodes, to our weekly video series on YouTube, to our next book being released in 2019, and how we are going to absolutely raise the bar on LinkedIn where the community is now 25,000 strong — we are just…getting…started.
So thank you, Onward Nation — thank you very much.
