What Scaling A Business Really Looks Like W/ Allison Maslan

“Make decisions from where you’re going, not from where you’re at.”
— Allison Maslan

Greetings, SuperFriends!

Today we are joined by Allison Maslan. Allison is a fellow Genius Network member, the CEO of Pinnacle Global Network – the world leader in scaling businesses – and she also is the author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller, “Scale or Fail”.

In addition to that, Allison has built 10 successful companies, starting out at age 19. As if these are not enough, she is an accomplished trapeze artist, and she even has a background in homeopathy, among many other very interesting topics that we get into on the show.

You may have seen Allison in Success, Fortune, Inc, Fast Company and Forbes Magazine, or as a featured expert on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, as well as many others.

Now, on this episode, I wanted to understand how Allison has maintained such high performance throughout her career. I know we don’t normally talk about business topics, but we got into that a little bit, and we also got into self-care.

Truth is, I think I got an understanding of what makes her tick, and how she’s able to motivate and drive herself to accomplish so much – which, at the end of the day, is what this show is all about.

I’m sure you folks are really going to enjoy this episode!
