I’m always telling our Accelerator members, you aren’t going to just think your way into growing your business, you also have to feel it too! Adam Johnston wants to inspire you to use your intuition to build your business.
He’s co-founder and CEO of Last Call Trivia, a company that produces hundreds of trivia shows around the country each week.
As he’s built his business over the past 12 years, he’s realized using his intuition is crucial when hiring people and knowing which new opportunities to pursue.
Lot of great lessons in our conversation including:
