Did you know that there are 4 distinct phases of online business, and no matter where you’re at or what you do, I can tell you that you are in one of these phases right now. In today’s #BizTipFriday edition of the podcast, I reveal why it is so important to understand which phase of online business you’re in, and what to do when you find yourself in each of them. This is a topic that you can’t afford to ignore on your journey as a Digital CEO, because you’ve got to know where you are so that you know where to go. So, let’s get to work!
