Every growing business experiences the challenge of getting the right leaders on board and aligning their output, but how? There’s not easy answer, but today’s guest seems to have a cleaner take on it than anyone I’ve ever met. I got a lot of value over our conversation and I think you will as well.

Today’s guest is phenomenal. He and his business partners developed one of the most important companies in our local film production industry, and eventually established offices through North America with hundreds of employees. He’s got some really great advice on how business leaders need to position themselves relative to their competition. I hope you enjoy our conversation.

Lisa Dyck (Cornell Creme)

Today’s guest must have no trouble making friends. She has a degree in ice cream production, and she knows how to use it! Our conversation gets into the nuts and bolts of how she’s built up her ice cream pipeline, from her family farm to the grocery stores to your table. I had a lot of fun, and I hope you do too.

Matthew Corrin (Freshii)

Today’s guest is unique in several respects: he runs a publicly traded company (that he founded), his business uses a franchise model very successfully, and although he is from Winnipeg he’s the first guest I’ve had who isn’t currently based here. I found him to be a very interesting character, and I think you will too.

Trevor Nott (Nott Autocorp)

Today’s guest is pretty impressive. Having worked his way up through the ranks at various car dealerships, he eventually started his own small used car dealership. Ten years later, business is booming, and his name is synonymous with pre-owned luxury vehicles in Winnipeg. And one visit to his showroom will tell you why: the space is perfectly thought out, and the staff are exceptional. Anyway, I really enjoyed our time together, and I hope you do too.

Then he bought into a night club. Now he also runs a restaurant. The guy is productive. I hope you get something out of our conversation!
