To be a successful Small Business owner, you must embrace accountability. Not just for yourself, but for your employees, contractors, partners, and suppliers. So, what do you do when people don’t match your expectations of how hard they should be working, how fast they should be getting things done, and how high the quality of work being completed is?

Join your hosts Shannon Jean and Dave Hamilton as they discuss ways to manage those expectations and how to shift our own thinking to increase the performance of others.
