All - As aspiring SMB CEOs, I thought you may be particularly interested in this week's podcast episode:

Verne Harnish has done more for Entrepreneurs and CEOs than almost anybody else I can think of: He is the founder of the world-renowned Entrepreneurs’ Organization (“EO”), the Founder and CEO of Scaling Up & Gazelles (global executive education and coaching companies with over 200 partners on six continents), and is the author of multiple global bestselling books including Mastering the Rockefeller Habits; The Greatest Business Decisions of All Time, Scaling Up (Rockefeller Habits 2.0), and his latest book, Scaling Up Compensation.

In our discussion, we cover a lot of ground, but focus specifically around how to craft highly effective compensation plans, why certain executive-level hires tend to be hard for most CEOs to get right, the advice that he would give his 20-year-old self, and the 3 to 5 books that he would put on his personal "mount rushmore" of business books (among many others).
