Hosted by Chris Efessiou
My guest next week is Burrow Hill. After 35 years as an entrepreneur and growing his commercial construction services firm to $50 million in sales, Burrow turned over the day to day operations of the company to his three long-time partners. He realized that his passion was elsewhere. Burrow authored a book Talk Tools, a communication book focusing on relationships, uses the tools and practices he obtained in the business. With Talk Tools, he gives people the tools and strategies they need to better communicate and have more successful relationships in business, family and marriage. Burrow and I have a major element in the fabric of our lives in common. He used his Business knowledge to improve personal relationships in Talk Tools, while I used my Business Skills to apply to the Business of Parenting in CDO Chief Daddy Officer.
