About the Episode

 

On this episode, I’m joined by my good friend and the “CEO Whisperer”, Cameron Herold, a man whose knowledge and understanding of business has been of great help to many entrepreneurs, including our own team. In a world where talking about being an entrepreneur is more cool, thrilling and exciting than the actual work it takes to build and run a successful business; it’s refreshing to talk to someone who has walked the walk. He is able to provide insights and wisdom, backed by his own experience and journey of riding the rollercoaster of business. He has learned about setting boundaries, not getting distracted by the noise, and strategic thinking; and these are all these we can benefit from in our own businesses. 

 

Cameron Herold is a top business consultant, best-selling author, and speaker. He is the founder of the COO Alliance, co-host of the Second in Command podcast. He’s the mastermind behind hundreds of companies’ exponential growth and he’s touched thousands of businesses indirectly through his work. At age 21, he had 14 employees. By 35, he’d helped build his first two 100 Million Dollar companies. By the age of 42, Cameron had engineered 1-800-GOT-JUNK?’s spectacular growth from $2

Million to $106 Million in revenue in just six years. His companies landed over 5,200 media placements in those same six years, including coverage on Oprah. Not simply a theory guy, Cameron teaches what he knows from experience and is passionate about sharing

 

Life as an entrepreneur often feels like we’re flies trapped behind a window trying to find a way out; it’s actually quite easy for us to become trapped by our own success. In order to escape this, we need a cheat code. That cheat code includes setting boundaries so that we protect our effectiveness, and making sure we have focus, faith and effort working in our favor, not against us. We have three inputs, people, time and money. We have to focus on what gives us the highest ROI. 

 

In Today’s Episode, We Talk About;

 

- Cameron’s life in entrepreneurship and why he was always drawn to business.

- How to overcome the common entrepreneur struggle of setting boundaries.

- What working nights and weekends is actually a symptom of. 

- What sets successful businesses apart and the formula entrepreneurs need to check themselves against. 

- What’s concerning and/or exciting Cameron about the future of business.  

- Why strategic planning doesn’t exist, and why we need to focus on strategic thinking. 

- Something interesting about Cameron that isn’t known by many people.
