Episode 419 – Creating Better Business Relationships Using Nimble with Shannon Eckroth

Back in the day when MySpace was all the rage, my friends obsessed over profile pictures and sharing memes while I geeked out for hours learning how to code new backgrounds and analyzing what actions got the most reaction from people. 

Fast forward a few years later and I’m sitting at the startup, LinkedIn in Sunnyvale, CA helping them recruit their first accounting department. All the while getting the best digital education a girl could ask for.

I’m always here to help and most business owners have a question or two they just can’t seem to figure out. I’m that needle in a haystack that probably has an answer and if I don’t, I welcome the challenge to add another skill to my toolbox once I figure it out!
