This week we are joined by Francesca Chia of GoGet, which is a technology platform connecting businesses to on demand workforce of verified workers, called GoGetters.
This was a great conversation as we navigated the origin story which involved a couple of pivots. Through the conversation there are great pieces of advice on building a business, including the bottom-up/top-down way to prioritize goals and create OKRs. We close with a great piece of advice on the importance of passion as the motivator for coping with the toughness of entrepreneurship.
I’d love to know what you took away from this conversation with Francesca Chia. If you’d like to be considered as a guest or have someone that you’d like to hear me speak to, drop me a message.
