In episode 1, we explore “success.” Everyone talks about it but what is it? Is it a point or a process? Is it luck or what are the three Ps that make for success (personal, process, and planning … passion, patience, perseverance are also listed as the 3 Ps). Mitch Pisik, Award Winning Executive Coach, Business Consultant, and Professional Speaker joins Dr. Z in the first episode to talk about success.
